Overseas scammers targeting small tourist operators
An interesting talkback call came in during a discussion with the ACCC about online fraud on ABC’s 774 breakfast radio show on Tuesday.
Liz Pryor of Bed & Breakfasts and Farmstays Australia told listeners about a money laundering scam attempted on small hotel and bed & breakfast owners almost every day.
Liz also warned listeners how her members are often called by bogus magazine publishers asking for money for advertising space bought earlier in the year when of course the advertising was never bought in the first place.
