Photos revealed of Irish scammers believed to still be in the country

Police are investigating complaints about the group's activities.

The force has released images of a number of men and women who may be able to assist with their investigations.

Detective Superintendent Fleming encouraged the people depicted to contact police to help resolve the allegations.

"They (the remaining group) will have to go through a port of some sort I expect we will get a call", he said.

Police said that a group of men are offering discounted repairs on bitumen driveways and roofing whilst providing sub-standard services or failing to complete the work or to even turn up.

There was also an alleged assault in Fortitude Valley.

The women in the group have used their children to shoplift, with the kids sneaking things into a pram while the adults distract shop attendants.

In general, Fleming said that the individuals appear to be targeting "small businesses and the elderly".

"They are good at creating diversions and distractions / disruptions to either steal goods or demand goods and services for free". They are aggressive and usually work in groups of two or more.

Whilst the four people may still be in Queensland it is possible they have since travelled interstate to avoid police.

If you have information for police, contact Policelink on 131 444 or provide information using the online form 24hrs per day. "My experience tells me they're generally alert to the practices of police", Fleming said.

"Whilst it seems straight forward.if we seek the Commonwealth's approval to revoke a visa when we prosecute someone, the state of Queensland bears the cost then of them staying in the state", he said. So either they haven't done anything wrong, or they're incredibly brazen and they have no respect for the law.

"I really hate to be talking about dollars when we are talking about justice but there is a balancing act there about making sure the community is safe to prevent more offences versus what is the likely outcome of this". Queensland Police confirmed to Yahoo7 that some of the scammers had left.
