Scammers targeting visa holders

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) reveals that
Scammers are masquerading as government officials and contacting migrants in Australia requesting some sort of visa payment.

A spokesman for the DIAC said that this was a well-organised scam and reminds all visa holders and applicants in Australia that the government would never phone you and demand a visa payment.

If you have received such a call or believe to have received such a call please contact the Australian Competition Consumer Commission (ACCC) on 1300 302 502.
