STAY ALERT!- LATEST COVID-19 PLANT THEFT SCAM!

CITS has today been made aware by an Operation Opal, Crime Intelligence Analyst of the latest plant theft scam using COVID-19 as a way to lure their victims.

The offenders returned to remove a dumper truck before the real hire company made an enquiry regarding the machine days later. It is unclear how the offenders knew the equipment had indeed been hired and from which company, but certainly a feasible request given COVID-19 and one that may apply to more offences. CITS urges the industry to stay aware of all the latest scams and threats during these difficult times to prevent further losses to businesses falling victim to professional and opportunistic criminals!
