There are currently a wide range of appeals raising funds for people and animals affected by the bushfires. Unfortunately, some of these are scams. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has set up a hotline for people worried about bushfire charity scams – 1300 795 995. Reports can also be made on the Scamwatch website – scamwatch.gov.au/news/bushfires-and-scams.
