Just got a phone call from an Indian woman claiming to be from the Accident Investigation Unit. I told her to go and F@#k herself and hung up. Any time anyone with an indian accent rings me I do the same thing. Its a dirty country full of lying, thieving losers. Never had these calls when call centres were in Aust. Now they're in Mumbai & Manila, we get scammers ringing continuously. I just had a call from someone with an Asian accent - probably indian - claiming to call from accident investigation asking to speak to the person that was involved in a car accident 2 years ago. I asked her which car she was talking about. I got quite stressed out because my husband is out in den car and with her strange accent all I could understand was accident. When I realised she was talking about an accident 2 years ago I asked her which car she was talking about. That was a question she apparently could not answer. She said that she must have the wrong number and hung up. Where do those people get my number? It's unlisted and I'm on the no-call register. I too have had a call from these people, but they cannot give me any information regarding this accident that I may or may not have had, in a car that I may or not have owned, around 2 years ago. She could not give me any details "because of privacy reasons" so when I told them to contact my solicitor at 1800 BITEME the call was abruptly terminated. So I suggest we all start giving this company that number and hope they will all get the message that we are aware of the scam BEWARE another INDIAN CALL CENTRE SCAM!! I had the same number call me. It was an Indian lady called Lisa. She claimed she was also from the Accident Hotline in Newcastle Sydney and she had information that I had been in an accident and had a $5000 claim. She told me a weird long address number which is non existent in Hunt street Newcastle when I questioned her. I played her game and then told her I am reporting you to various bodies! She was so brazen. Whilst talking to her on another line when she supplied me with her number I called and another DODGY indian man answered then hung up! If we call the number now it rings out or says its BUSY! Everyone should report this to SCAM WATCH & POLICE! I am so sick of these Indian scam calls & fraudsters! The problem is various companies outsource to countries alike India and the Philippines and these fraudsters infiltrate and due to international laws etc.. get away with this FRAUD & SCAMS! I say keep our calls centres in AUSTRALIA!!! I got 4 calls today from them asking about an accident, I had just been in an accident two weeks ago because of a driver off his head. I asked how they got my number as I had not made a claim. And they said the police gave it to them. I then hung up and rang the station. I was then informed I had done the right thing and should they call back get their name, age, date of birth, company name and trading number. That usually stops them. Then report it to the ACCC with what information you did get. I am in Canberra and we've had a couple of these calls int he last week. Woman with a strong non-Australian (possibly Indian) accent, claiming to be from the "Accident Investigation Bureau" regarding compensation for a car accident in the last two years (which we haven't had), and then being extremely evasive in response to simple, direct questions. It was pretty obvious that it was a scam, and it appears it's been doing the rounds for a long time! The phone number was (02) 8006 4574, but I expect it was routed through from overseas. Just had a call from (02) 8091 4668 re a rear ender in last twelve months.Brian with Indian accent 7th Feb 2017 11-45am jsut got scam call from indian voice from (02) 8091 4668 i said is this a scam call and he hung up. I am at work and have been getting these calls all morning on different extensions.
Someone with an Indian accent claiming to be from "The Accident Helpline" - definitely a scam and getting very annoying!
Do you own a business that advertises on any websites also been annoyed by cold caller same as above - but when I laughed and him and told him I knew there was no such dept - and hung up - he then called me back and told me not to laugh at him! Also just got a accident investigation call asking if anyone had been hurt and something to do with my number... WTF.. told him he had the wrong number and hung up... Heavy Indian accent.. if they call back I will tell them that I will get my policeman (not) husband to take his call... but does anyone know how they are getting our numbers and their numbers to call... to buy a sim card in Oz you need a drivers license or ID.. so how the heck can these people mass call from an Oz number... not impressed just another scam
told the indian creep that I was having whole a cow for dinner
then the abuse started
so every time they ring I now have a very very loud whistle that they cop
report them to immigration and deport the scammers they are here on student visa and have over stayed
Yes I got the call this morning, accident helpline.... an accident in the home in the last year or so, I asked their ABN number and their phone number, ABN doesn't check out, the numbers they gave were (02) 8006 9951 and (02) 8005 9961, I called back asking for Johnny and I then I told them I killed the owner of the other car and he quickly hung up!! I just had a call from some Indian sounding bloke, claiming to be from Car Accident Investigation. I could barely understand him. He asked me if I had been involved in a car accident. When I asked him how he got our blocked number he hung up on me. When to the Scamnet website and gave them a ring. I was told it is a wide-spread scam going through WA at the moment. My latest of these came from number (08) 9173 7654, (02) 8282 2215, 20272070, (02) 6847 2619. These are the latest numbers using the insurance scam. So over this. Surely the government can intervene in these online phone numbers. Some sort of regulation needs to be done. Had two phone calls in two days. Ist one yesterday at my work place and today at home. Both times Indian/foreign ladies asking for details of accidents supposedly had by members of my family. When questioned could not tell me anything as their information was logged into their database. I kept asking them questions. The call yesterday hung up as soon as I told them we were a solicitors office. Today's call I told point blank that they were a scam and she challenged me so I told her again that they were a scam and I would be reporting them to authorities. She eventually got the message and hung up I am at work and just received a call from Accident Help Line....kept telling her to ring our head office!! Jennifer 280069951 Just got the same call. Accident investigator dept. someone had an accident recently. I said no. Not to my knowledge. He says must have the wrong number. Their number came up on my screen. (08) 9467 4216. Just tried to call them back. Sounds like they're on the phone to someone else 😠 Just emailed govt scammers dept
