Scam Alert - Overpayment Scams

Attention: open in a new window. Print


Overpayment scammers aim to trick you out of money by requesting a ‘refund’ for having incorrectly paid you money. There are many variations of this type of scam:

• They may provide you with false evidence of payment.
• They may have compromised your account.
• They may have transferred your own funds between your accounts.
• They may generously offer you a cut of the overpayment if you withdraw cash and deposit it into an account they nominate.
Don’t be fooled by this type of scam.
