Telephone scam involving our organisation

Thursday, 12 November 2020

We are aware of a telephone scam currently circulating, claiming to be a call from us.

If you receive a call claiming to be from Victoria Legal Aid and stating 'press one or you will be arrested', please disregard it. This is a scam and not a legitimate call from us.

If one of our lawyers or officers calls you, we will always identify ourselves. If you are unsure if a call is from us, please contact our Legal Help phone line on 1300 792 387.

Report scam phone calls

You can report scam phone calls to Scamwatch, a service operated by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
