Scam calls and texts impersonating the AEC

Updated: 23 October 2020

The AEC understands that a small number of scam phone calls and texts purportedly from the AEC are demanding that electors update their enrolment details or face criminal charges. The AEC will never demand by phone or text that electors update enrolment details or face criminal charges.

Should you receive such a message you should report it to scamwatch. If you are concerned about your enrolment details you may check your enrolment online or contact us.
