Scammers are now trying to exploit Australians financially impacted by the CO-VID 19 crisis with new superannuation scams being reported to Scamwatch in recent weeks. Scammers are already trying to take advantage of the Government’s recent announcement that people suffering financial hardship can have partial access to their superannuation from mid-April. They are cold calling people claiming to be from organisations that can help get easy access to superannuation. The Australian Taxation Office is coordinating the early release of superannuation through myGov and no third party should be involved.
