Stolen property fax scheme
Consumers have received faxes originating from England advising of recovered stolen property for public sale by Police and Government Departments.
The stolen goods fax back scheme promotes things such as vehicles, office equipment and electrical goods that are probably not even in Australia, although their prices are quoted in dollars.
The fax quotes a $5.50 per minute call cost to obtain a guide in order to buy so-called bargains.
190 fax retrieval systems can run very slowly and cost the consumer dearly.
190 fax retrieval systems that charge per minute are not illegal provided they comply with relevant Communications Regulations and show their name and the cost per minute in their material.

The scammer hopes curiosity, greed or the fear of missing out will entice you into emailing or faxing back. Don’t communicate in any way with the sender of this bogus fax.
