Townsville Bulletin - - Inside Today -

AN al­leged fraud­ster has ripped off the iden­tity of a dead Bris­bane man, to claim flood vic­tim money from Cen­tre­link. Authorities are hunt­ing Steven Les­lie Har­ri­son, 56, who they be­lieve ac­quired the pen­sion card and redi­rected the mail of de­ceased man Gary Allen, 53. Mr Allen died in a Bris­bane unit on Jan­uary 22 in cir­cum­stances that are not con­sid­ered to be sus­pi­cious. De­tec­tive Se­nior Sergeant Peter Bin­ney said $ 1000 of Cen­tre­link flood re­lief money and a fur­ther $ 1027 dis­abil­ity pen­sion was claimed in the de­ceased man’s name.
