A BALLARAT resident has warned others of a new telephone scam to hit the region.
Lyn McNeight received a phone call from a man claiming he was from Centrelink on Monday about 12.30pm.
She said the man was calling about an increase to her pension. As Ms McNeight has no connection to Centrelink, she asked the man whether he was a ‘scammer’. The man then hung up.
