SCAM ALERT: Fraudulent phone calls

SENIORS Newspapers would like to let our readers and advertisers know that we are not in the process of putting together a calendar for 2017.

Seniors Newspapers general manager Geoff Crockett said he wanted to let people know that this was not a product Seniors Newspapers is working on and we are not contacting people in regards to this.

"We have had a number of our clients ring and tell us that people purporting to be from the Seniors Newspapers are ringing to try and sell them advertising on a calendar of some sort," Mr Crockett said.

"The clients are telling us that one caller will attempt to book them into the calendar, and then a second person is calling to chase up the artwork."

"I would encourage any of our readers or advertisers who receive a call that seems at odds with our normal procedure to please let your normal contact know, or to get in touch with me via (07) 5430 1006.
