“Tainted love”: A symposium exploring the reality of romance fraud

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) reported that $8 million was lost to romance fraud by Australians in 2014, making it the highest category of financial loss across all fraud types. Given the known low levels of reporting for this crime type, this figure is unlikely to represent the true extent of harm incurred by romance fraud.

Despite the magnitude of these losses, romance fraud remains somewhat of a hidden problem in society. Many victims are unable to disclose their situation to those around them, for a variety of reasons including the associated shame and stigma of this crime type.

Join with us for this important symposium, hosted by the Crime and Justice Research Centre, QUT, which seeks to explore issues surrounding the prevention and support of romance fraud victims.

  • Date: Tuesday 31 May 2016
  • Time: 9am-1pm (morning tea provided)
  • Venue: Owen J Wordsworth Room, Level 12, S block, Gardens Point Campus, Queensland University of Technology, 2 George St, Brisbane, QLD, 4000
