How to spot a scam

Sometimes scammers pretending to be Belong manage to trick our customers out of information and money.

If you know or suspect you’ve been the victim of a scam, take these steps:

  • If you shared banking information, contact your bank immediately to stop or investigate any transactions

  • If you shared usernames or passwords, change them immediately. If you use the same combination elsewhere, change them too

  • If you shared identity information such as your passport, Medicare, driver license or contact details, visit ID Care to get help on your next steps.

  • If you’re not sure if you’ve been a victim of a scam and you didn’t share any sensitive information, see the ACCC list of common scams.

You need to know: We'll never ask for your passwords, PIN numbers or banking login details over the phone, in an email or in an SMS.

Suspicious calls

If you’re not sure if the caller is genuine, the best thing to do is hang up and call us on . Tell us what the caller was saying and we can identify whether the call was genuine or not. 

Suspicious emails or SMS

If you’re not sure if an email or SMS is genuinely from us, call us on  and we can look into it for you. Tell us what it said so we can check it against our records. Don’t click any links in the email or SMS, or download anything that it suggests.
