Another day, another scam, this time Attorney General Simon Corbell warns that ‘Once in a Lifetime Holidays’ are letting people know they’ve ‘won’ lovely trips to Mexico and Florida and all that’s needed is a credit card number to secure the prize…
- “The representative then convinced the resident to give her credit card details to verify she held a MasterCard or Visa and told her that no one could debit money from an account without the 3-digit code on the back of the card.
“This is clearly misleading and I urge Canberrans not to respond to offers, deals or requests for their personal details.
“When the resident checked her credit card the following day, nearly $600 had been withdrawn from the account and when she attempted to call the number the representative had given her, it was not connected.”
Here’s a tip folks, if you didn’t enter it then you haven’t won.
