What to do if you think you’ve been scammed.

If you think you’ve entered your Afterpay details into a phishing site, let us know what happened as soon as you can. Include as much detail as possible, such as a screenshot of any suspicious information and the communication you received.

If you have received a SMS verification or email message from Afterpay that you have not triggered, you can safely ignore this.
