Have called numerous times today, as soon as I answer they hang up. Glad I read these comments, had know idea if it was something important or something wrong with my phone. is the ACMA powerless to do anything about this?
for christ sake get odd your asses and stop this harrasment!!
These people ring up to 6 times per day and 5 out of 6 times they hang up when I do answer. When they do decide to talk to me they are often offering a special deal on telecommunications. When I ring this number, I get a recorded message stating that the number is disconnected or not available. They have been ringing for more than 6 months now. Am at a loss of what to do next. Indian male from power saver limited no ABN he told me to get stuffed
Another cyber terrorist funding operation
Received a call from some Filipino sounding chick from a private number wanting to send me information by email for something that I could not understand. (These days I just hang up as soon as they sound foreign and say "hello good afternoon sir, how are you doing today"). When I hung up on this chick the phone rang again from a private number which I just ignored, knowing it was her ringing back. Then the phone rang with (02) 5619 9300 on display. When I answered it was her again! Then some Filipino male got on the phone and I asked him where they were calling from. He said HONG KONG!! Whatever else he said I just said I was not interested and hung up again. They still ring, I just ignore. HOWEVER, I tried dialing this number back to see who/what answered. Guess what? It's DISCONNECTED! So somehow, overseas scammers are using disconnected Australian numbers or fake Australian numbers to display...or perhaps routing through Australian numbers so that they cannot be traced. Take my advice, DO NOT DEAL WITH ANYONE FROM OVERSEAS! KEEP BUSINESS AND YOUR MONEY IN AUSTRALIA. Because if and once you part with it overseas, you will never see it again. Guaranteed! Same people called me first a lady then a guy both indian shortly after they start talking i repeatedly say... "I dont have a phone, I have a fax..... Hello." in various order but always the same tone of voice never laughing or getting angry at them. Its great fun for the family as the all sit listen and try not to cry from laughter the most recent one was so impressive the chap threated to kill me he was so angry that i wouldnt answer his questions with anything more than a " I dont have a phone. I have a Fax. Hello....Hello. You should try it. getting bloody fed up with them get around 3-4 calls a day in 1 week bursts, if i answer there is silence if my wife answers they try to flog her a new phone service........ Male voice with slight indian accent asking for a name that has been used as an email address that is also linked to a skype account. Possible that my number was retrieved through phone computer repair service named gizmo. The male asked for that person or the owner of the phone to talk about phone service plan. When I did not offer any information he was quite irrate and used offensive language before hanging up. He is running a computer scam

Normally if I don’t know the phone number I don’t recognise the number I don’t pick up the phone...
