Paper uncovers phone scam ads

A COMPANY offering cheap mobile phone and computer deals has been exposed as a likely scam.

Pacific Mobile Phones offered “Buy 3 get 1 free” on a range of latest-model phones but provided only email or skype addresses as contact points. It’s run adverts in a number of publications and in leaflets delivered direct to homes since April, including an advert in the Herald’s sister publication the Perth Voice last week.

The ad was to have run in the Herald but our staff became suspicious and did some digging. Shortly after we pulled the ad, Consumer Protection confirmed it believed it was a sham which had been circulating widely in Perth media and pamphlets.

Anyone who’d paid money to Pacific Mobile Phones should contact WA Scamnet by calling 1300 304 054 or emailing
