Fairfield City Council is warning residents to be vigilant from people posing as Fairfield City Council Officers carrying out inspections on behalf of Council.
Council is advising residents that their staff always carry identification and will never ask for cash up front.
Community members should always ask for identification from anyone identifying themselves as Council workers. Residents should be alert against fraudsters, particularly around this time of the year.
If residents have any concerns, please contact Police or the Office of Fair Trading.
