A Breakdown by Age of Scam Victims

Scammers hit people of all ages, usually with the same scams but some scams are targeted at specific age ranges e.g. retirement scams.

This graph shows the number of percentage of reports to Scamwatch by age group.

The age group 65+ shows the greatest prevalence of scams but that may just be that there are more people in that age group than the others.

Men and women tend to fall for slightly different scams, but there is little difference in the numbers reporting scams overall.

If you have any experiences with scams do let me know, by email.
