Scammers Target Locals

A Dareton man's been targeted by scammers claiming to be from Telstra.

Inspector Stuart Gordon says the victim was told he could be paid $2 500... as long as he bought iTunes gift cards to that value.


Anyone who receives such a call should just hang up and then get in touch with authorities and scamwatch.
