WA- Phone scam warining

Postby Vested Utility » Mon May 01, 2017 11:39 pm

A licensed electrician has reported a phone scam where the caller pretended to be from EnergySafety and asked for the man's credit card details to pay for his electrical worker's license. It is understood he is not the only licensed electrical worker in WA to receive one of these imposter phone calls.

If you receive a call claiming to be from EnergySafety asking for your credit card details:

do not give out any personal information;
take down the name and phone number of the caller; and
tell them you will return the call once you have verified that the request is authentic.
Next call EnergySafety Licensing on 08 6251 2000 to check that they were trying to contact you.

If in doubt, you can call WA ScamNet at Consumer Protection on 1300 30 40 54.
