We had a call from one of our clients during the week stating that she had received a call from a Government Department, “The Reclaim Department Sydney” advising her that she had an amount owing to her of over $5,000. She was quoted a reference number and a telephone number to call immediately to claim her money.
Our office telephoned the number given to our client and after questioning the “so called” department on what their business was with our client, we were promptly disconnected.
Thankfully, our client did not give out any information to the caller.
Please be aware of any unsolicited calls from government departments stating you are owed money of any description.
Feel free to call our office should you need assistance with any of these calls or emails seeking personal information. Global financial fraud is now occurring at an alarming rate, and was discussed at our recent Conference. Please see below.
