Police from the Murray Mallee LSA have issued a fresh warning to the community about scammers making unsolicited telephone calls.

Of concern with these recent scam calls is that the telephone number displayed is that of a South Australian police station, however the call is not being made from that location.

In one recent incident reported to police a woman was advised by a caller that he was a ‘federal agent’ from the ATO and that she owned money.

Police urge the public to be aware and vigilant when receiving phone calls from unknown numbers.

Police also would like to remind the community that No government organisation will ever request payment of debts or fines through gift cards or online currency and SA Police do not act as debt collectors for any agency or other organisation.
