You will also find that phone scam is becoming more and more common. Telemarketers, debt collectors, charities, survey companies and scammers often call without leaving a message or disconnect once you answer. you can check to see if the number is a scam, and if there are other people who are the victims of harassment or attempted fraud.
called them back. its basically a sales pitch for installing solar panels. i was pretty upfront with them to say i cant do anything about it for at least another 12 months. He did ask me how much i was paying for electricity couple times, (i avoided telling him), moved the conversation along. and yep. end of call.the guy seems pleansant, and didnt feel like i was being pressured. Also actually took the time to wish me luck with my studies, and said good bye.usually if its a scam, theres a lot of pressure, and once the message is clear you cant purchase, they hang up quite rudely without a "bye"though not sure how they got my mobile number.
Definitely a scam. Called asking me if I knew someone or had had an accident in the last 12 months. When I said I didn't know what they were talking about they asked the same question multiple times. I refused to say yes or no and just said I didn't know what they were talking about or I didn't know anyone. Got very nervous when I asked questions about them.
telstra has handed out phone numbers to third parties who represent organised crime overseas. They are trying to egt certain worlds out of you - always aoivd saying yes for example. They are eh start of identity theft.We need to work out a way to catch the bastards and execute themm
This person calls and tells you if anyone onthis number had an accident in th last few months. If you push them for answers they tell you they are from a solictor to help with compensations. The solictor is one that does not exist. I believe if they can get a peropson to belive them they may end up paying over hundreds and hundreds of dollars in return for them winning compensation for their case. Or they tell you that they got your number from your insurance company - when calling a mobile - theyhave the name of the person who own the phone. They hang up if you ask which insurance company or you push for any more answers.
The person posted as David from Department of foreign Affairs and trade. Don't know how they have my address, but started asking questions regarding my stay in Australia, have I been contacted by department of immigration, my passport details. I told them that I don't want to disclose this information on phone, please provide me with your address and I will come in person. He then hung up !!
I just reported 0343094087 and 0280062356These number is a SCAM. Immediately called them back and someone with really bad English picked up and confirmed that they are calling from ATO and they have a warrant for my arrest. Absolute worthless scums of this earth, you waste of air!!!
I had voice message from Indian man "Edward from Australian Taxation Office" yesterday saying I had debt and to call before debt collectors were going to start to collect unpaid monies. Then today a missed call, so when I called back 02 80062356 he (Edward again) wanted my details before he repeated where he was from. SCAM!!! Do not tell him anything just put the phone down.
This number is a SCAM, The number has contacted me several times and when I pick up there is no one speaking. Immediately called them back and someone with horrible English picked up and confirmed that they are calling from ATO and they have a warrant for my arrest. That's when I lost it!!! block the number all together.
Returned a missed call on home landline (silent) to find out who was calling/messaging. Explained do not need or want hearing test/hearing aid, and to please do not call again. This number now comes up multiple times a day in missed calls since being put on block. As the phone is a work phone, the message pings are intrusive and interfere with work related messages. Have no idea why they started calling a mobile work number.
According to the ACMA (Got in contact with them awhile ago - relating another matter), and I was told, that by LAW any 'callers' (telemarketers and the like) are REQUIRED to have a call back 'service'. Should you get a call from xy and z (within Australian number wise - 07, 08, 04, etc.) and you try to call them back, without success (i.e. number disconnected, etc.), if you manage to get a call from them (answering ;)), try calling the incoming number (in this case - 0385926924) from another 'line' and if the case is "no incoming calls allowed", explain to them they are illegally calling people after you get some details from them - I.E. organization they are calling from, etc. THEN call the number, should above happen. HANG UP, and get in touch with the ACMA to report them!! They can in fact be hit with MASSIVE fines and potentially be closed down due to BREACHING the ACMA LAW.Hope this helps!!
Number called and when we answered it was silent. Called back and obviously a call centre. Spoke to a caller who refused to say who he was, who he worked for. or what the reason fro their call was. Claimed he could not tell me why he was calling for for 'Privacy reasons', but expected me to pass on details of a person without me knowing who was calling.Kept asking for a person I had never heard of despite owning this number for 5 years.Clearly a scam.
this is a reverse number database that allows you to look up numbers and let others know your experiences with that people using that number. You can report phone fraud by letting the community and public know that this is how they tried to get a hold of you. You can find out who's been trying to reach you, even if they don't leave a message, just by looking them up. Finding out if its telemarketers, surveys, charities, or even debt collectors is as simple as looking the number up in the database and seeing if others have had contact with the person on the other end of the line. Even if you just want to check out a business by using their number, you can see what other visitors in the community have heard or dealt with in the past.
