Shepparton woman warns of phone call scam.January 8, 2014 4:04am
A Shepparton woman is warning of a scammer making phone calls promising cash.
Barbara Collins phoned The Newsyesterday after receiving a phone call from a man claiming he was from a Federal Government department.
‘‘He said he was from an Australian federal department and there was money due to me of over $5000,’’ Ms Collins said.
‘‘He said he was phoning from Brazil, but once I started to ask him questions I was getting a load of rubbish and then he hung up on me.’’
She urged anyone who received a phone call from anyone saying they were owed money to be wary.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s website www.scamwatch.gov.auconfirmed the phone call was a scam.
It said people who received a phone call out of the blue claiming they were entitled to a refund or money should hang up immediately.
