Scam Awareness Week

Scam awareness weekScammers target NDIS participants to rip them off. Join our information session to learn how to identify scams and protect yourself


About this event

Scammers are increasingly targeting NDIS participants and looking for ways to rip them off.

They target people of all backgrounds and they succeed because they look like the real thing and catch you off guard when you’re not expecting it.

Join us for a 1-hour virtual information session and find out more about scams. In this session we will discuss:

  • what is a scam and what are the different types of scams you should watch out for
  • the scams targeting NDIS participants and providers and how to protect yourself from them
  • what to do if you are the victim of a scam.

This session will cover topics relevant to participants, nominees, families and carers and providers

Sessions are delivered via video-conference using Microsoft Teams, and are offered over two different dates to allow flexibility for attendees. Additional dates may be added if required.

Each session covers the same content, and attendees should only register for one session to give others an opportunity to attend.

Registrations close three business days prior to the session date. We only accept individual registrations for events to ensure all attendees receive links to join.

Two business days before the event, login details (including the MS Teams link) will be sent to the email address you provide at registration (this email may filter to your junk mail). Please check your email address is correct when registering.

Accessibility is important to us. If you have accessibility requirements, please advise when registering. A minimum of five business days’ notice is required to book Auslan interpreters and live captioning services.
