Confirmed by DVA Brisbane and advised that it is not just National Servicemen that are being targeted, it is also veterans, national servicemen and anyone remotely connected with the Australian Defence Forces.
BE AWARE & WARNED!
A timely warning indeed and you can check it out at http://www.dva.gov.au/news_archive/Documents/scams.pdf Check out scams etc at http://www.scamwatch.gov.au/content/index.phtml/tag/scamwatch/
The ex serviceman is initially sent a letter advising them that they are entitled to Service pension and to contact the author. Once they do this they are then sent a letter with AMF (not used for many years) headed paper asking for bank details to put the service pension into, date of birth and other personal information. Their bank accounts are then cleaned out.
Please advise as many others as possible of this scam.
