Be­ware: bank ‘re­fund’ is another scam

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

I WARN read­ers of a scam phone call I re­ceived, sup­pos­edly from the Gov­ern­ment of Aus­tralia fi­nance depart­ment, in­form­ing me I am due a re­fund on over­charges made by my bank.

I would re­ceive a cheque but I would have to go to the post of­fice to pay for the lawyers act­ing on my be­half be­fore I could cash the cheque.

I called the Gov­ern­ment of­fice in Perth and it was a scam.

I have not paid any­thing to the scam­mers but this is a warn­ing to read­ers who may be tempted when told the amount they are sup­posed to re­ceive. Name and ad­dress sup­plied.
