Verify or report a scam

What to do if you get a letter, phone call, text message or email that you're not sure is genuine.

Verify it's a scam

Scams trick you into paying money or giving out your personal information.

Scammers pretend to be from trusted organisations. On occasion, scammers may claim to be the Audit Office of New South Wales or contacting on behalf of the Auditor-General for New South Wales.

The Audit Office rarely contacts members of the public.

We report to the Parliament of New South Wales and undertake audits of government entities only.

We never audit individuals.

We never request information or money directly from individuals.
