Scam alert

There has been a significant increase in scammers taking money and personal information from Australians, particularly those over the age of 65 years. Scammers are known to have phoned people and claimed to be from trusted organisations like NBN or internet providers. To avoid being scammed hang up on unsolicited phone calls and never allow callers to log into your computer. Do not provide bank account or other personal details to these callers. If you think a scammer has gained access to your personal information contact your financial institution immediately.
