Dear Australian Securities and Investments Commission,

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would like to request the number of reports of foreign exchange scams received by the ASIC in each of the last five years (from 2016 onwards).

If possible, I would also like to know the total value lost by victims in each of these years too

Yours faithfully,
Jamie Dixon

Fiona Crowe, Australian Securities and Investments Commission
