Beware of Scams

Friday 3 September 2021

Lockdown is an ideal time for scammers as people are mostly at home to answer the phone.

Our colleagues at Masterton District Library informed us of the following today, "Some of our customers have been receiving calls from the International Library Service about owing hundreds of dollars to the library and asking them to pay over the phone. This is a scam and we've told patrons to ignore calls of this nature." 

If you get a phone call from the International Library Service saying you owe money, it is a scam.

Netsafe has some great tips on how to recognise a scam. Read more in the links provided below.
