Indigenous Outreach Program
The Indigenous Outreach Program provides support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander consumers who want to know more about money matters. The team also works with industry and consumer advocates to increase the financial knowledge of, and improve the services provided to Indigenous Australians.
The Indigenous Outreach team are able to:
- assist with complaints
- provide copies of our Indigenous educational materials
- provide general assistance and financial literacy education
You can contact the team through ASIC's Indigenous Help Line on 1300 365 957 (cost of a local call from landlines and more from mobiles) or call ASIC's Infoline on 1300 300 630. You can also email the team at [email protected].
Scammers may call you out of the blue asking for personal details or offering investment opportunities.
If someone asks for personal details on the phone, hang up and call them back using details from their official website.
If you're pressured into sharing personal information or investing your money, it's probably an investment scam.
