Residents Warned of Online Scam Threat

Eyre Peninsula residents are being warned of the threat of online scams, after SAPOL detected emails claiming to be from a popular SA organisation containing links to purchase solar panels.

The phishing email takes users to a fake website, prompting users to enter personal details, which could be used by cyber criminals to steal the user's identity.

Police are reminding locals to think before following links or clicking on a button contained within emails or messages, and if unsure ring the business on a known or reputable number, not the email contained in the message.

For more information on scams, residents can go to the SAPOL website.
