Biloela residents warned of possible charity scam

POLICE are warning Biloela residents to be on the lookout for a possible scam involving a door-to-door charity collector.

A Biloela woman told police late last month she was approached by a man claiming to be from the Cancer Council, who wanted to sign her up for bank withdrawals from her account on a weekly or monthly basis.

A call was made to the Cancer Council, who confirmed there was no collection taking place in Biloela at that time.

Police said people should ask for and confirm ID from charity collectors and check with charity organisations before handing over any confidential information.
