Tasmania Police are searching for scammers who tried to profit from the presumed death of Henty miner Cameron Goss.
At least two fake crowdfunding scams that claimed to be raising money for the Queenstown man's funeral surfaced after police said he was "presumed deceased" on Friday afternoon.
Inspector Shane LeFevre said there was "some suggestion" one had been started in the United Kingdom.
Mr Goss's daughter was outraged by the scams but said crowdfunding platform Donor Box had since suspended an account to stop the flow of dodgy donations.
"If you did donate they asked to contact PayPal as they can refund the money, donor box can not," she said on social media.
Meanwhile, PYBAR Mining Services continues to focus on recovery activities at the Henty Gold Mine.
"Specialist personnel and equipment is either on site or being mobilised to site at present. Once the recovery has been completed the incident will be fully investigated," a company spokesperson said. Inspector LeFevre said a coronial investigation would explore "every facet" of the incident.
