This scam is hardly normal

Would Harvey Norman really sell a TV for $4.95, Queensland Police say?

This afternoon Queensland have received a scam text message claiming to be from the retailer, but as with all scams if it sounds too good to be true, it always is!

The scam comes as a text message and asks to click attachment to pick up your package.

Users who have then clicked on the link have been shown “special deal” offering Samsung TVs for $4.95

We shouldn’t have to tell you this is a scam. Don’t click the attachment and delete the text immediately.

If you have information for police, contact Policelink on 131 444 or provide information using the online form 24hrs per day.
