More phone scams
COFFS HARBOUR police believe scam artists are trying to steal people’s personal details, sending fraudulent text messages saying they have won large amounts of money.
Mobile phone users have been warned not to reply to the bogus texts after a number of people across NSW have been caught out.
Coffs/Clarence crime manager, Detective Inspector Cameron Lindsay, said the text messages told people they had won $550,000.
“To claim the money, people are pointed to go to a website and fill in a form with their personal information,” Insp. Lindsay said
“We are urging people not to respond to these text messages.”
