Eurobodalla Shire Council is warning residents about scammers trying to trick them into handing over details or money.
They claim to represent Council and say that the resident is entitled to compensation.
They claim to be from an organisation called Accident Social Services on behalf of Council.
Council does not engage third parties in such matters.
