A growing number of coronavirus scams are being reported to the consumer watchdog.
Australians are also being warned against scams involving fake cures for COVID-19 and sales of non-existent goods.
“Unfortunately, scammers are using the uncertainty around COVID-19, or coronavirus, to take advantage of people,” ACCC chair Delia Rickard said.
“We’ve had a wide variety of scams reported to us, including fake online stores selling products claiming to be a vaccine or cure for coronavirus, and stores selling products such as face masks and not providing the goods.”
While the voucher offer has proven fake, Woolworths is stepping up efforts to get food to elderly and other vulnerable people stuck at home as coronavirus spreads.
The supermarket is rolling out an $80 box of basic groceries and will use Australia Post and other distribution channels to get orders to isolated people faster.
The box includes meals, snacks and a few essential items and can be ordered online in NSW, Victoria and the ACT.
