In­ter­net fraud

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY Po­lice have been field­ing a num­ber of calls re­lat­ing to on­line fraud. Of­fi­cer in Charge of the Whit­sun­day Po­lice Sta­tion, Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Brad Teys, said people were pur­chas­ing items through un­se­cured pay­ment meth­ods over the in­ter­net and find­ing their goods were not dis­patched de­spite part­ing with the cash. He said vic­tims of on­line fraud were ad­vised to re­port the in­ci­dents to the ap­pro­pri­ate po­lice de­part­ments in­stead of call­ing the sta­tion. Pub­lic sites ex­plain­ing the dif­fer­ent kinds of fraud and on­line scams can be found at www.po­lice.qld.gov.au. The web ad­dress for forms to re­port the crimes is www.po­lice.qld.gov.au
