Local Canberrans may want to keep an eye on their phone in case they receive a suspicious looking message. The message has already been received by members of the community and Scamwatch has asked people not to open the link. The ACCC’s Scamwatch warned of the scam today, urging people to delete the message immediately if received.
The scam message can also appear to have spelling mistakes in the wording.
