Backpackers learn how to steal Australian travel
Through word of mouth, and probably a few blog posts, word has spread, and it's really kicking Aussie authorities in the wallet. And, the government is powerless. By the time they catch up with fraudsters, there usually isn't much money left. Off course, the amounts are known to be too small for the Australian Tax Office to pursue them overseas.
But, this is illegal. Of the hundreds of thousands of backpackers who visited Australia last year, 44 were prosecuted successfully. Knowing my luck, I would have been one of them.
