People have also been asked to purchase ‘i-Tunes’ gift cards as payment. Police say on the mid north coast, Forster-Tuncurry has been hit the hardest, with one elderly person buying seven-thousand dollars worth of gift cards. “If someone rings you for something like this, always ask them to send you paper work, they should have your address, you should never have to provide anything over the phone.
