Look out for scams

  • If you get a message that says: Police will arrest you for not paying your tax bill, then it is trying to trick you.
  • Be careful of people trying to trick you. If strangers ask you, don’t give them information about yourself, for example your date of birth and address.
  • Don’t send money to people that you haven’t met.
  • Do not pay money to anybody with gift cards, iTunes cards or any other cards.

If you are worried about this or need somebody to help you ring WA ScamNet. 1300 30 40 54

Stay safe!
