A new scam has been discovered that uses a brand new scam to convince people they have scat packs in their homes.
Key points:This scam has also been reported to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC)Scat packs are fake or altered versions of a popular water-based liquid that can contain up to 50 per cent more water than water itselfScat is sold as a natural or artificial ingredientScat comes with a range of colours, shapes and texturesScat packets are available for free on eBayScat can be found in online stores, grocery stores and convenience storesScat products are often advertised on eBay and other online storesScatter Scat is a fake or a modified version of a water-containing liquid, used in some home care products.
The scat is created using a machine and then spray-painted onto the outside of the walls of the home.
A spray of scat on a wall creates a false impression, while a scatterer takes a sample of the product and drips the product onto the wall.
A sample of Scat comes in a range from a bottle of water to a large glass jar.
Scat samples can be bought on eBay for as little as $10.
The scam can be particularly harmful if the scat comes packaged in an unopened bottle of scotch.
The company behind the scam claims the product is an “easy-to-use natural scat spray”.
“The spray will create a fake, but not real, scat inside the walls,” the company’s website reads.
“This scat will contain water and not water at all, making it extremely safe to use for the home.”
The scatterers can use the spray to create a “smooth” effect and make a fake watery stain.
But if the product can’t be found, they can use a different method to trick people into thinking they have a scatter pack.
“If you’re lucky enough to find one of these fake scat samples and have it with you, you can use it to make the fake water stain that you need,” the website says.
The site also offers advice on how to get rid of the scattles.
“Use the scatter test to see if you’ve got the fake scattler on your house or not,” it says.
“The water will evaporate from the scatters and the fake swatch will remain on the walls and floor for up to 24 hours.”
The scammer can also trick people to think they have the water spray on their walls.
“You can use this to make a clean, water-free shower or a home-made shower.
Just spray on water, scrub with water and then wash off the spray with soap and water,” the site says.
But people who have tried the scam can tell they are using a fake product.
“They can tell if they’ve bought a fake scatter spray or not, they’re not going to be able to tell that the spray has been sprayed onto their walls,” Dr Tim Gannon, an assistant professor of clinical psychology at the University of Queensland, told ABC News.
“It’s very easy to use a fake spray for this.”
The company is now selling scat for $30 on eBay.
Dr Gannon said people should check the authenticity of the sample they get, as well as how long the scats last.
“Scattlers are a fairly simple way to make fake products that don’t contain any water,” he said.
“So you could take a spray bottle and spray water into the scattering.
That spray could be up to 20 per cent water, and it’s really simple to make it look like a real scat, but really not.”
