Camperdown Police call on local community to be vigilent
Police in the Camperdown area have been made aware of a series of phone scams, where police station phone numbers are being cloned and used to trick people into handing over large quantities of money.
As a result they've warned the community to be vigilant, If they receive a phone call requesting personal information or payment from a person representing themselves from a law enforcement or government agency.
Sergeant Andrew Raven from Camperdown Police, says it's disturbing that these types of scams have resurfaced.
"It was around a few months ago, and it seems to have come back, so if people do get a call from the AFP it's likely to be a scam, particularly when they start talking about that they will be arrested if they don't comply" he said.
