Don’t ignore scammers. Play along and disrupt their activities!
When you receive an email, phone call, eBay or Gumtree inquiry from a scammer, you might be tempted to ignore them or respond with abuse. However, you can help reduce heartache, and massive financial losses for your fellow citizens by helping PICDO to disrupt these criminal networks.
Report a cybercrime
Common types of cybercrime include hacking, scams, fraud, identity theft, attacks on computer systems and illegal or prohibited online content.
We can assist to identify the perpetrator and in some cases retrieve your money.
Protect yourself from cybercrime
To avoid becoming a victim of cybercrime, we all need to educate ourselves and take responsibility for our own online security and safety.
This means using safe online practices and being aware of the ways that cyber criminals and hackers try to obtain your personal information.
