A popular topic of conversation now days is in relation to scams.
Scams are many and varied and scammers prey on a multitude of different organisations and people to get their hands-on money or property.
Recently the old Telstra scam has reared its ugly head yet again.
This scam involves the scammer contacting a householder (generally elderly) and advises that there is an issue with the modem.
The scammer states that he/she is from Telstra and ask for remote access to your computer. They advise that by doing this the victim will receive a credit for $60 and then ask for account details to place the credit in to.
After that a lot of nerdy computer action goes on with the result of your money in your bank accounts gone.
Please do not under any circumstances give any person access to your details in your computer let alone allowing it to happen over the phone.
Telstra will not ring and ask for access, so if someone does, hang up.
You can always get on the google and have a look at scam watch for up to date info on scams.
Be careful who you pick up.
We have all given people a lift into town or down the road.
I’ve done it myself however I only give a lift to persons I know.
For your own personal safety, be very aware of who you give a lift to.
If you give the wrong person a ride you may be assaulted, have property stolen or even have your car stolen.
Don’t put yourself in danger.
As always, in case of an emergency call 000. In non-emergencies call the Policelink on 131 444 or your local police station. To provide anonymous information call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
