Beware: bank ‘refund’ is another scam
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.
