SCAM Alert: There have been a number of reports in our area of scammers trying to get iTunes vouchers from potential victims. The scammer contacts a person advising them that their computer may have a fault and they need to be paid to repair it; that the tax office has a warrant for their arrest and they can pay the fine with iTunes cards or to pay a release fee for an additional payment, such as from Centrelink. The scammer demands that the victim attends a local shop and buys iTunes gift cards to pay, sometimes thousands of dollars of value. If questioned at the shop, the scammer will warn the victim to say they are purchasing the cards for their children.
There are no legitimate businesses or government departments that will ask for payment with iTunes cards. If you fall for this scam it is virtually impossible to get your money back.
