Beware of Water Filter Scam

If you get someone knocking on your door in Bacchus Marsh telling you that they can install water filters for you without any charge under a government rebate, then you better turn them away because it has been revealed as a scam.
 
Apparently hawkers have been going around offering local residents free water installation after conducting a fake test showing their water to be polluted.
 
There is currently no such rebate scheme in place and there have been complaints amongst those who have signed up for these “schemes” and have been charged up to $3000 for a 10 year maintenance agreement.
 
Anybody who believes that they may have been affected or who has any information should call Consumer Affairs on this number: 1300 558 181.
