|SCAM WATCH! (21-Jun-17)
Council has been notified of a potential scam operating in our region in relation to the NBN. If you receive any unsolicited phone calls in relation to the NBN, do not hand over any personal information and contact your preferred telecommunications provider.
Construction commences on the NBN in late 2017 with installation into premises occurring after this.
NBN does not provide any retail services to consumers - they are in charge of installing NBN infrastructure. Your preferred telecommunications provider will conduct installation.
Never give your account details unless you have made the contact. Don't rely on numbers, email addresses or websites provided - conduct your own independent search. Do not purchase any new equipment before speaking to your preferred telecommunications provider.
Please be aware that scammers can often use major government programs to trick people into handing over their money or personal details. Always be wary of who you are providing these details to.
