    Sounds official, like a Government automated call but is really a well organised scammer. Don't be fooled. The only reason I clued up to it was that i knew I don't have any current business with Centrelink.
    Bad scam

    Caller: (02) 8317 1419

    Claimed I had not respond to their repeated messages about my backpayment and that my files have now been transferred to Canberra amd was told to phone the above number and mention an Application No. I looked on my MyGov account and could not see any messages from Centrelink, I then phoned Centrelink and they had no back payment for me and could not see anything showing that they had been trying to message me. I phoned the number requested (02) 6529 0157 and they answered as Human Services......first question they asked was my name, in reply I said if i give you my application number can you tell me my name, with that they promptly hung up on me.......definitely SCAM ......DO NOT RESPOND

    I've had a couple of calls. Same as all the above. Quoted "my Centrelink No", 080456.
    I didn't know I had a number. Usual stuff about ignoring their letters and pension upgrade, but I'm not a pensioner.

    Australia
    an official aussie lady automatic voice calls me saying that she is from centrelink asking me to call back (02) 6529 0157 because I fail to answer many letter questions from centrelink and it makes my pension payment getting less than it should be. It is totally a liar as I am not eligible to enjoy any benefit from pension, centrelink. These people arranging such trap should be dealt by police so that innocent citizen will be protected.

    Unsolicited call
    Australia
    Caller: Centrelink Representative

    (Call was to my 83 yr old mother in law) The female caller (australian accent) stated that centrelink owed my mother in law $2225.45. She then said that she would transfer the call through to Human Services where the call was answered by an Indian speaking male who answered with "Centrelink Human Services". He asked for her Pension Card number. He made an appointment for her to attend centrelink at 3pm the following day. My mother in law asked if this was a scam. Silence for a moment and then they hung up.

    Caller: Some Indian SCAMMER

    Left a message saying was from Centrelink on my parent's message bank and asked to be called back on 02 6529 015. When called back they answered straight away which is odd for centrelink, because they always put you on hold for like an hour. Then answers this indian dude with 'Hello Centrelink...étc...
    He has some basic info on you like your name, who lives with you, where you live etc,,,then he starts asking for detailed info. SCAMMER....dont be fooled.

    Caller: 6529 0157 - said her name was Natalie on the recorded message

    My 85 year old dad has been getting calls from this 65290157 number for the last three weeks. He does not need the stress. Why havent they shut down this number yet? The message said it was from Centrelink and his case had been transferred to Canberra as he had not answered their calls. Luckily he did not respond and asked me to check if it was a scam. But they still keep calling him.

    Caller: Scammer pretending to be Centrelink

    Still using this number to call back on and still using ref no. 080456.
    Why do they ring me? They reckon they know where I live. Better to just send me the money :-).

    yep same tel number, same application number given 080456. when I called back they answered as centrelink and then seem to be shuffling papers and kept telling me to hold while he "looks up my information" I had told him nothing at this point but he had my phone number. When I started hassling him about who I was speaking to he hung up. I called back, the next guy who answered very gruffly and officially and when I started questioning if this really was centrelink he quickly hung up.

    How come these people can go on calling from this same number with all these complaints and no-one can do anything about them. low life scammers.
