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 Caller: I don’t know
Received a call from (02) 5550 3757 and he correctly mentioned my name and asked the same solar panel question, I told him that I wish not to answer and asked him how did he got my name and number, then he also said I will not reply to ur question and hung up, called back and the number says not connected, please do not provide answer to such calls.
Definitely a scam regarding solar panel rebates. Ive has a call from this number before but didn’t realise (obviously forgot to block it). When I returned the call msg said it was disconnected. Came in on 02 prefix -Sydney but commencing with 555 doesn’t make sense as should start with a 9. They usually don’t even hang on long enough to answer - what is the benefit of that?? Pests!
