eCommerce Scam Prevention Campaign
Meta worked with the Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman and IDCARE to develop a scam awareness campaign for small businesses. The campaign provides tips for buyers and sellers—outlining how buyers can identify scams, and how sellers can be responsible and build consumer trust. The campaign also provides guidance on how to report scams across all our platforms.
Good ideas deserve to be found
Small businesses are the beating heart of our economic recovery. With the right tools, they can stay open, and stay flexible, easily adapting to changing conditions. That’s why so many Australian small businesses use personalised ads on Facebook and Instagram. Targeted messages keep costs down, reach the right customers and help communities discover brands they’ll love.
Combatting online scams
We worked in partnership with IDCARE and Puppy Scam Awareness Australia to develop a ‘Scam Awareness Campaign’. The campaign provides simple, user-friendly tips to identify, avoid and report the seven most common types of online scams – investment, phishing, romance, ecommerce, pet, lottery and job scams.
Building a safer online world
We want Australians to have a safe and positive experience online. To make this a reality, we build tools, products and resources to equip young people and adults alike, with the skills they need to thrive online and work in partnership with many Australian NGOs to support the wellbeing of the community.Learn More

Connecting communities to respond and recover
In unfortunate times of natural disasters, people use digital platforms to let their friends and family know they’re safe, to raise awareness to those outside the disaster area of what’s happening, and to help their communities recover.
