South Burnett Regional Council is warning residents to be vigilant and report any telephone call from a person posing as an SBRC employee.

A scammer has called residents with a “survey”.

“The person or persons have nothing to do with Council,” a spokesperson said.

“Council does not survey people asking for personal and income details.

“The scam caller pretends to ask survey questions concerning the resident’s home, health, and income.

“If anyone receives one of these scam calls, please hang up and report it immediately to Council so we are informed and can take action including reporting details to the proper authorities.

“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 (07) 4189-9100 or by email.”
