The scammers are becoming so clever that people in the Spencer Gulf regions are handing over their bank details and opening themselves up to losing thousands of dollars.
This is devastating for anyone who realises they have been scammed, especially at this time of year.
They call you up at home and tell you not to tell anyone about this as you have been especially chosen for this cheap holiday and special deal.
They send you a scratchie ticket and wow you have won. This must be real!
The best rule to live by is "If it sounds to good to be true, then it usually is!"
There are no free lunches out there. There is no quick easy way to become rich.
Never hand your private bank account details to someone over the phone, as it is a sure way to watch the dollars drain from your bank account.
We are seeing too much of this sort of thing lately, so if you are in doubt please give us a call to check.
