Energex warns of scammers targeting homes in SEQ
Energex has this afternoon released a statement warning home owners in south east Queensland about a phone scam.
“We’ve had a scam issue this week with people phoning homeowners in South East Queensland claiming to work for Energex saying we owe them a rebate,” a spokesman said.
“They then ask for the person’s credit card details offering to “directly credit” their account.
“This is a scam and Energex will never cold call asking for credit card details.
“If people do receive one of these calls they should notify Scamwatch at www.scamwatch.gov.au.”
