Scams Awareness at Goulburn Mulwaree Library

Published on 18 November 2022


If you’ve ever been worried about online scams, or you’re simply looking to upskill your digital safety, come along to this free information session on Thursday 24 November at the Library.

In 2021 Australians made more than 286,600 reports to Scamwatch and reported losses of around $324 million. By the end of August this year, Australians had lost even more with reported losses of over $381 million. As alarming as these numbers are, we know that around one third of people who are scammed never tell anyone, so the true numbers are probably much higher.

Join Katharine, our local NBN ambassador, in the Library to learn ways to identify scams and check whether an offer, contact, or link is genuine before you act on it, along with helpful advice on what to do if you’ve been a victim of a scam. With data breaches on this rise, and scammers continually developing new ways to catch people out, increased vigilance is more important than ever before.

There will be plenty of helpful tips in this event about protecting your data and avoiding phone and online scams, as well as chances to ask your own questions about digital safety.

Scams Awareness will be held from 12.30pm to 1.30pm on Thursday 24 November in the Library. If you would like to book in please visit or contact the Library on (02) 4823 4435 for more information.
