Be alert: Council scammer calls


South Burnett Regional Council has received community advice of scam callers in the region.

Residents are warned to be vigilant and report any telephone call from a person posing as South Burnett Regional Council.

The person or persons have nothing to do with Council.

Council does not survey people asking for personal information.

If anyone receives one of these scam calls, please ignore or hang up immediately and block the caller.

If anyone believes they have been scammed, report to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s Scamwatch.

Council is concerned that elderly and vulnerable residents are prey to scammers whose eventual aim is to steal people’s identities and money.

Residents who believe they, or a family member, have been contacted by this scammer are urged to contact Council on 4189 9100 or email
