Don’t be conned

Stanthorpe Border Post - - NEWS -

PEO­PLE are re­port­edly op­er­at­ing a scam in the South­ern Downs re­gion and res­i­dents are warned to be vig­i­lant.

The scam­mer will seek a de­posit to un­der­take con­cret­ing or bi­tu­men work, and then are not seen again. Those in­volved say they work for a com­pany which op­er­ates out of Bris­bane. Typ­i­cally scam­mers of this kind prey on the el­derly and vul­ner­a­ble, so please keep an eye on friends or fam­ily mem­bers who may be tar­geted.

Be aware and only deal with reg­is­tered busi­nesses that have an ABN. Po­lice are also aware of this scam.
