Be wary of scams by phone

SCAMMERS are targeting the Rose City once again, this time with an anti-virus software for your computer.

One Warwick couple was bombarded with phone calls from people with Indian accents claiming they were selling a software they just couldn't live without.

"There were three different people who rang within a few hours of each other," she said.

The resident said her husband was initially sucked in by the company operating under the name of Max Adams.

"He wanted a card number, and he told them it and they took $120 out, but then I went to the bank and cancelled the card when we became suspicious," she said.

The Warwick resident said she had spoken to three of her friends who had also received the calls.

"It's nothing but a rip-off and I think other people should be aware of it," she said, adding one of the callers claimed to be Kevin Allen from Sydney.

A Warwick police spokesman warned people always to be wary.

"If you get calls like this, don't divulge anything and always check it is a reputable source," he said.
