National Scams Awareness Week: 'This is Not Your Life' runs from 17–21 August as part of a national campaign by the ACCC’s Scams Awareness Network.

This year’s campaign will focus on scams and identity theft.

Scams are constantly evolving and our growing use and reliance on technology provides scammers more opportunities to trick you into giving away your valuable personal information.

Scammers can then use your personal information to steal your identity for personal and financial gain.

You can catch last week’s podcast of Geelong Bank’s CEO, Vivien Allen chatting with Mitchell from Mitchell's Front Page, about scams and identity theft. Find out how you can protect your financial information in an increasingly digital environment here
