Port Lincoln police are investigating after a stolen identity was used to purchase telecommunication services.
On Tuesday, a local man reported to police that he had received a debt recovery letter, which stated he owed money to a telecommunications company he never had an account with.
As a result of the identity theft, an unknown person has defrauded a phone company.
Police are reminding the public to be aware and vigilant of online scams and phone requests for remote access to computers.
