Called me from several different mobile numbers claiming to be from visa and mastercard security department and said there was a suspicious transaction made on my account. Was very rude when I questioned them and gave me (02) 8006 5260 to call. Haven’t bothered since reading these comments definitely a scam. got very irate when I started to challenge them (And told me I was the scammer when I called them out).
also showed up with the mobile number 0404 594 833
Caller: James Franklin
they told me John Lewis (!) had tried a number of times to take money from my account. I hung up. He got very annoyed when I tried to get more information. He said they were from the Australian Bank Security Dept.
THIS IS A SCAM, they asked my mother to loging to her online banking claiming there is suspicious activity on her account. They had an Indian accent and said their name was Jennifer Williams. They gained access to my mother computer and got her to login to her online banking accounts. Also asked for her Apple ID and email address. Please watch out. I called the number (02) 8006 2560 back and yelled at them. The guy on the phone had an Indian accent and was swearing at me because I told them I know they are a scam and I was going to report them. same thing happened to be today. They wanted me to dowload an app. I wasn't sure it was a scam Had a call from someone claiming to be from visa and mastercard security department.
Indian accented and named Steve. I asked for his phone number so i could call him back and he gave me (02) 8006 2560. Said there were suspicious transactions on my card earlier today made by someone named James Smith from New Zealand.
