Residents warned of scammers

A BATHURST business is encouraging residents to be on alert if they receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Australian Taxation Office.

George Street Medical Practice received three phone calls on Friday claiming that it was under investigation and being watched by the Australian Federal Police.

“We’ve had scam calls in the past, but this is three in one day,” a spokesperson for the practice said.

“They are very intimidating and we thought older people should be aware.”
