Fraud, scams and rip-offs are becoming more commonplace, The Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety has developed WA ScamNet as one method of combatting this ever increasing problem.  Visit WA ScamNet to receive important alerts and learn more.

This free, evidence-based cyber safety program provides information to parents, carers, teachers and students about the technologies young people use and the challenges they may face. 

Topics such as social media reputation management, cyberbullying, "sexting", online grooming and identity theft are a few of the topics covered in this website.  The program aims to bridge the knowledge gap between adults and young people so that everyone has an understanding of the roles they play and what they can do if something goes wrong online.
