Australians aged 55 and over lost more than $39 million to online scammers in 2017; that’s $10 million more than all the other age groups combined.  As technology advances and scams get more sophisticated, older Australians are at more risk of being targeted, which is why the Office of the eSafety Commissioner is running online safety presentations for the aged care sector.

An eSafety expert will focus on the most common scams targeting older Australians, provide tips on how to spot them, what to do or not do and who to speak to when you need help. Plus, where to find more safety topics on the Be Connected site.

The one-hour webinar presentation is designed to help aged care staff be alert for themselves and for their residents.

Residents are also welcome to join the session to help build their confidence online.
