Police warn community of internet and phone scammers

computer use.jpgPolice are warning Whyalla residents they could be targeted next in a string of phone call and internet scams currently doing the rounds in regional South Australia.

The scammers have addressed various topics but the most popular scams involve internet and NBN connections, and telecommunication companies.

Police remind the community to remain vigilant when receiving unexpected emails or phone calls, and to be aware of potential scammers.

It is important to check callers to ensure they are who they claim to be, and to not give out personal information or bank details to an untrusted source.

The community is encouraged to speak to friends, family and neighbours who may be vulnerable to the scams, and warn them about the risks.
