We had a lo­cal res­i­dent drop

Email scam

by THE TELE­GRAPH of­fice last week to in­form us of a new email scam do­ing the rounds.

The gen­tle­man said he had re­ceived an email ask­ing him to up­date his de­tails with the Com­mon­wealth Bank.

The only prob­lem was, he doesn’t have any ac­counts with Com­mon­wealth Bank — a dead give­away that the email was a hoax.

He no­ti­fied the bank and lo­cal po­lice and wanted other res­i­dents to be wary of the scam.

Rail­way sta­tion im­prove­ments

Fa­cil­ity im­prove­ments will be made at a num­ber of lo­cal train sta­tions in the com­ing months,

Bike cages will be in­stalled at Sey­mour Rail­way Sta­tion, while bike hoops will be placed at Broad­ford, Tal­la­rook and Avenel sta­tions.

The in­fra­struc­ture up­grades are part of the Vic­to­rian Gov­ern­ment’s $22.5 mil­lion road and rail mi­nor works pro­gram.

‘‘Ad­di­tional bike cages and hoops at our lo­cal sta­tions will pro­vide bet­ter se­cu­rity for bike rid­ers who wish to ride to their lo­cal sta­tion,’’ Mem­ber for North­ern Vic­to­ria Ja­clyn Symes said.
