Spring cleanout

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

CAIRNS Li­braries, in­clud­ing the one in Moss­man, are do­ing a spring clean-up of mem­bers but have warned they will not be con­tact­ing mem­bers in­di­vid­u­ally, af­ter a re­cent phone scam at­tempt.

A li­brary mem­ber in Cairns was asked to re-reg­is­ter their mem­ber­ship and was asked for their credit card num­ber, which li­brary staff and the Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil will never ask for, for any pur­pose.

As part of the clean-up, the li­braries in the re­gion will be re­mov­ing mem­ber­ships that have not been ac­tive for two years or more, so CRC en­cour­age mem­bers to up­date their de­tails if they do wish to be re­moved.

If you re­ceive a call claim­ing to be from a li­brary or coun­cil staff re­quest­ing credit card de­tails, CRC urge peo­ple to record any de­tails and contact po­lice on 4087 1999, or crime stop­pers on 1800 333 000.
