Scammers target Cowra

The Cowra Guardian has received reports of scammers targeting elderly people in town.

Megan Green was visiting her father on Friday morning when he received a call from a taped voice message claiming to be the federal police, chasing an outstanding debt owed to the taxation office.

“It says they have a warrant issued for your arrest,” Ms Green said.

“It’s just horrible. They’re getting people conned into paying whatever.”
