Warrnambool Police Urge Local Community To Be Vigilant
Police have urged the Great South Coast community, to be on the look out for scams, with an increase in reports recently.
It's prompted Police to reach out to the community, with a reminder to never hand over personal details over the phone, and to contact authorities if residents believe they may have been the victim of a scam.
Acting Senior Sergeant Tom Morris from Warrnambool Police, says unfortunately elderly residents are often targeted, making it important the community works together to educate each other about scams.
"There's been an influx of recent ones that have been reported to us lately, we're just trying to encourage people to get in touch with your local police if you are targeted, before you do anything else" he said.
