Another scammer - broken english - dont him to loose the number and hung up Spam phone call but why did they know my name? And solar panels??? Also called at a really bad time. Number now blocked. Received a call from this number and i said hello several times only to be told "thank you" and they hung up. I had a bad feeling they had recorded my voice and voice recognition purposes, i hope I'm wrong. Very weird... actually, I'm in a block of units and one of my neighbours has panels but because I'm renting, I can't approve it anyway.
Just had a call from this number at 7pm

Poor English speaking Chinese person asking questions about solar panels and rebates. There was alot of background noise, but not in a call centre. SCAM I had a call today from this number.
I was out to lunch and couldn't hear through the noise and the accent so after asking who it was then saying that I couldn't hear he told me to F off and hung up on me!
I tried calling back to see who the hell it was and the number can't be called.
Call prefaced by saying (in a very British accent,) that I owed ATO money. I dialled 1 to speak to a staff member - heavily accented chap claimed asked for my name. I said "How come you ring me without knowing my name?" - he garbled some nonsense, then hung up when I said that I worked for the ATO. (I don't) Answered and it was a guy who had broken English (Chinese sounding) he said something about solar panel rebates. I don't have solar panels and when I tried to explain he became abusive. Uses a fake piggy back number to make it appear caller (see caller ID) is in Australia. Definitely a well organized overseas scam call. I answered phone long pause then someone with a crackly line was talking to me about solar panel rebates . Scam, make who could barely speak English, sounded Chinese I received two calls from this number. I did answer the first, but answered the second and they hung up. I called back and the number was disconnected Was notified via text of a call that never connected. Rang number within seconds, only to hear a recorded message informing me that said number had been disconnected. These calls need to stop. All the calls I get are usually scams unless I recognise them, so I googled the number while they were calling, and saw this string. I didn't answer. They didn't leave a message. I'm not calling back to find out. Comment has been removed
