Fraud

We take fraud seriously at Westnet, and we’re committed to helping you if you suspect that you’ve been a victim of fraud.

Online fraud generally involves phishing, which as an attempt to get private or personal details by pretending to be a legitimate entity. Phishing websites, emails and text messages can be difficult to spot. Try to look out for incorrect spelling and grammar, and poor layout, imagery and styling.
