Police warn residents to be vigilant of scam emails

Boorowa Police are asking residents to remain vigilant when receiving emails requesting payments.

The reminder comes after a person reported to police that he received an email purporting to be a gas bill, which appeared very genuine, however on closer examination proved to be a scam.

Senior Constable, Randall O’Brien, said elderly residents needed to be “extra vigilant when receiving any emails of this kind and especially before making payments”.
