    Yes, we got the call as well. Actually had my full name. Told me to verify and call back (02) 6100 1822 and quote application number A840. Had scam written all over it so I hung up and did not get any further. Registered it with Scam Watch under suspicion category "too good to be true"

    I got a call from a heavily Indian accent dude, offerring me 7000 from the Australian Goverment... he said to callthis number: (02) 6100 1822.

    I knew it was false - as if our govermnent would give away such huge amounts without a proper letter or something.

    Spread the message guys.

    yes and a lady by the name of Christina phoned to. Unfortuanately i was stupid enough to believe them. And no not because of the money, which if an extra bonus, but because iam a sucker for children that suffer!! so yes i was caught out, after paying the money to western union i still cant get hold of them, phone just keeps on ringing and what pi@@s me off the most is that whoever gets the money clearly doesnt deserve it! May you burn in hell....

    I received a call from this number today. the person called said that I'd received a $7000 grant from ATO because I paid my taxes on time and I had no criminal record. This grant would be available only once. when i asked them to make sure that they are really calling from the Australian taxation department.He said I can call on the number (02) 6100 1822 and check that they are the original ATO. He said I would receive my cheque for $7000 if I made a $250 payment to UNICEF. He said I was to deposit my $250 payment to UNICEF via Western Union to a person which he would tell me the details of. Only then was I to receive the $7000. By then I'd had enough and I called them 'scamming pricks'. I CALLED ATO and asked them and they said there is nothing grant system like that..wtf?

    I received a call from this number today. The prick on the other line said his name was 'Peter Pollard' (alarm bell number one as Indians aren't called that) and that I'd received a $7000 grant because I paid my taxes on time and I had no criminal record. He said I was to call back on the number (02) 6100 1822 and when I did (just to f*ck with their puny little minds) a 'Daniel Watson' (alarm bell number two as no Indian is called that, either) answered. He said I would receive my cheque for $7000 if I made a $250 payment to UNICEF. He said I was to deposit my $250 payment to UNICEF via Western Union to a person called Chand Bala Kaura, in Delhi, India. Only then was I to receive the $7000. By then I'd had enough and I called them 'scamming Indian pricks'. I called them back on this number a further two times for my own pleasure wherein I abused in various languages and yelled at them gleefully.
