Consumer alert: Scammers posing as Aussie brands
The ACMA continues to receive reports from members of the public about automated voice calls. The call suggests to ‘Press 1’ to claim a loyalty reward or redeem a prize from Qantas, Virgin Australia, Marriott Hotels or similar. These are scam calls.
Where members of the public do ‘Press 1’, they are taken to a human operator who will ask a number of questions, including a request for credit card details.
You should never provide your credit card details under these types of circumstances.
