Scam­mers tar­get re­gion

The Chronicle - - NEWS | ON THE MAP -

There have been re­ports of peo­ple op­er­at­ing a scam in the re­gion and the com­mu­nity is warned to be vig­i­lant.

The scam­mer will take a de­posit to un­der­take con­cret­ing or bi­tu­men work for res­i­dents and then is not seen again.

Those in­volved say that 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 might be tar­geted.
