    They called me and mentioned my uncle name and said they are from ADR, and asked my uncle's contact no. But my uncle doesn't live in Australia. and then they hung up the phone.

    Got a call of this exact same number. Asking for my mother. However iv had this phone for over 6 years so it would make no sense why my mum would ever put my number down for anything.

    To all those people saying so this is not a SCAM. Australian Debt Recoveries (ADR) buy outstanding debt from companies usual at a ridiculously cheap cost (ie 40cents each dollar owed), and harrass you for the full debt amount plus their additional fees and charges. They will have already listed debt on your credit file before the first call which stays there for 7 years. Every time they make official contact (hence the DOB for verification) it resets the 7 years. If you start making payments the 7 years starts after final payment. If you believe you don't owe money get a copy of your credit file and check it out. If you have proof of bill being paid and they have wrongfully placed the debt on your file you can get it removed. I am unfortunately not in the best financial position and have to deal with them calling every week wanting more money even though I have an agreement of $10 per fortnight with them and they know my position.

    I keep getting calls from this mob and am asked my date of birth. The girl is terribly rude when I refuse to give her my DOB. I say "you called me - obviously you know who I am". Eventually after a few calls I told them to put information in writing and gave an email address. The email simply said call this number and give my date of birth. I replied to the email and gave them a gob-full - but not my DOB! These people are parasites!

    Called me asking me if I knew the number for some courier company and when I said no they hung up. Didn't tell me who they were and wouldn't tell me what number they were after (which obviously wasn't mine!).

    I ignored a call from this number earlier as I didn't recognise it. They left no message. In reading the comments here though, I'm guessing it's linked to a letter I received a week ago from ADR Debt Collectors saying that I owed Vodafone $752 and to pay ADR the outstanding money. Get out!! I am with Vodafone and did have a stupidly large bill in Oct 13 but I paid it and there is nothing currently outstanding to Vodafone. They can bugger off thanks! Even with a letter I am not dealing with these people! They obviously have my name, address and phone number. I wonder if they'll ask for my date of birth if i answer? Probably!!

    They call me at least once a week asking for a random guy, they leave a reference and a text message soon after saying "this is not spam" "urgent". I don't answer because clearly my voicemail says I'm a different name. They all leave voice msgs and all have accents.

    MY partner and I have been receiving calls from that number. They always ask for my day of birth to be able to continue with the call. I have always refused to give my personal info and advised all my family to do the same.
    After few calls within the last week I did demand them to stop calling me but they said that the were going to keep me calling so I hang up, and called the police explained the situation and the answer was: "there's nothing we can do since they haven't stolen anything from you" so Police redirected me to told the story again and a "Customer Careless" heard and said thanks

    yes I have just experienced that. This lady is so rude on the phone, didn't even tell me what was her name and just keep asking for my date of birth in regarding to a very urgent debt issue. But she was with such a bad attitude, I just feel very strange about it.!!

    Women argued that I must provide my date of birth then she would talk to me... Are you kidding, giving someone that you don't know your DOB, before they'll tell me who they are! I told them to send a letter if they were legit - 9 months later and no letter. Don't give you DOB over the phone to anyone, it's a key element in identity theft.
