Mobile Phone Scams - To Aussie Phones


Internet scams, mobile fraud, loose weight following "one weird tip" scams are not covered by corpau, as not only there are dedicated websites to this, the sheer volume of these scams would cover the majority of posts on corpau.

There has been an increased number of these scams appearing on people's mobile phones, which are NOT filtered out at the telephone service providers end.


The concerning part about this is that there are so called 'laws' that do not work in Australia regarding these types of fraud.


An example of such a fraudulent message is as follows:

CONGRATS!!YOUR MOBILE NUMBER HAS WON FOR YOU $2,000,000 USD IN THE FREELOTTO MOBILE PROMO.FOR CLAIMS,SEND EMAIL: freelottoagentmb@aol.co.uk & CALL:+447035924026
