Used to have this number for 15 years and Telstra let it go off reserve, so was wondering how to...
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. ADR - Debt Collection? SCAM Called me and knew a previous address of mine. Asked for DOB and wanted to collect money from unpaid bills. I have reported number to Scam Watch. 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. I missed a call from this number and rang them they wouldn't say who they were and I asked what area they were in, she said Woolongong, She asked how I got the number and I told her I was returning a missed call. She asked my name I gave surname and she said they didn't have me on their data base for that number. I asked if they were from Vodaphone she said she couldn't tell me and hung up. The reason I asked if they were from Vodaphone is I had my IPhone stolen a year ago and reported it and shut the number down. About a month later I got a text from vodaphone saying my monthly bill was due. I rang them and asked how they got my number and they said it was given as the alternative number in the account. I told them I'd told them I'd never had a phone plan with vodaphone asked whose name the bill was in and they wouldn't tell me, I told them my phone had been stolen and this was an old phone I had to keep using. Vodaphone said they would contact the person on the phone plan and get them to correct their number details. I wonder if this is a debt collector chasing me for an unpaid debt that vodaphone allowed knowing the phone was stolen, I suspect the theif hasn't paid their vodaphone bill. What can I say clearly if a phone company allows a someone to have a phone plan for a stolen phone it's dumb to expect they will pay their bill and they can't rely in the rightful owner who was deprived of the phone to pay it for them when they refused to help prevent the wrongful debt. 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. Same thing happed to me. Female phoned "Jodie" said she was after my daughter. I asked for her name she said Jodie and when I asked who was calling, she terminated the call. My daughter left my address years ago? They keep phoning ....... I just had these People call me at work she told me that she would continue to call me at work until I identfied myself. I don't give my work number to any company apart from my bank I told her togo right ahead and keep asking for Fiona and I'm a guy. Be careful. 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 keep calling me and when i called back someone named sue from adi answered? This person called my work said they were ADR and hung up after i said they had the wrong number These dogs rang my number on a reverse call charge and never hung up while I was out. Never approved a reverse call for 358 minutes..now Telstra want me to pay $78 for the reverse call...wtf 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 SCAMwatch.com.au told the story again and a "Customer Careless" heard and said thanks
They did the same to me. I wouldn't give them my DOB. Will tell them to send me a letter. 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.!! I got a call from this number today asking for my old housemate that went crazy haha it seems legit, he is definitely the type to give my number to someone he is trying to avoid... Maybe now I gave them his actual number they wont call me anymore :) they just called me asking for someone that I didn't even no so I asked who they were and they said it doesn't matter I don't know the person they hung up. wont answer the number again.
