Be on alert for coun­cil phone scam

The Tatura Guardian - - News -

A spokesper­son from Greater Shep­par­ton City Coun­cil said it had been made aware of a po­ten­tial phone scam op­er­at­ing in the mu­nic­i­pal­ity.

They said coun­cil had heard from a num­ber of res­i­dents who had re­ceived a phone call say­ing they are from ‘‘mar­ket­ing so­lu­tions’’ who are run­ning a sur­vey on be­half of Greater Shep­par­ton City Coun­cil.

‘‘Res­i­dents are ad­vised that if they re­ceive a phone call sim­i­lar to this it is not au­tho­rised by coun­cil and may be a scam,’’ the spokesper­son said.

‘‘If res­i­dents re­ceive this phone call they should con­tact the Shep­par­ton Po­lice Sta­tion on 5820 5777.’’
