The caller sounded like he was in a very noisy room, so probably a call centre, and, as they tend to do, spoke quickly in a foreign accent about what sounded like 'death duties'. I asked for clarification and he became flustered and hung up. Definitely spam, possibly phishing or a scam. Keep calling and when I answer it says "goodbye" and then hangs up. Keep a whilstle handy - keep the nos beside your phone and if it is one of them blow like hell Presented on my mobile as:
0 61 2 8103 2051
Didn't answer and no message left.
Same as Paul from March 29, 2017 "Keep calling and when I answer it says "goodbye" and then hangs up." I'm guessing as it's an '8' number that it's a Skype call. No message, but same time daily. Frustrating as I'm on DNC register. Actually showed up on my phone as (02) 8103 2051. I didn't pick up. Reading this, I'm glad I didn't. Another one for the ever increasing block list. Indian(?) guy saying he was calling about homeowners and family tax benefits. I told him I wasn't interested and he said "ok byeeeeeeeee" and hung up. Blocked! who knows who this is - try to ring back and it says an extension number (which changes all the time) is busy. About tax Actually knew my name - started a spiel about "working home owners", so I hung up and immediately blocked the number. I am getting more and more spam calls on my mobile - someone obviously sold my number; the blocked list is getting quite long. Very annoying, I have now managed to stop spam calls on my land-line, by using Call Guardian, so now they started calling my mobile. Grrr Yes..rang but did not leave message..Call centre .. rings to see if you pick up to ring again later. I am sick and tired of these calls. I have been receiving a few every day. Not just this number either. Some come up private as well. He asked if I was me and then hung up after I said yes, who is this.
I complained to Telstra a couple weeks ago. Now I seem to be getting more than before. They have be ringing our landline for couple years. Only recently mobile.
Calls daily around 18:45. I have now saved this (and many others!) in my phone book as "Spammer" and don't bother answering any more. This phone number literally calls me everyday even with this number blocked it still shows up in the call history. I have only answered once in the past and no one in the background just a robot women saying 'goodbye' - absolutely frustrating - it's a scam for sure, do you call them back, no point, they will continue to call. My husband answered call at just past 5pm. It was one of those "goodbye" when you answer. We get these at least a couple of times a day. Just missed call from this number and when I called back it says the person on the extension is unavailable so I left a message...and you don't want to know what the message was but put it this way...I ripped them a new one that's for sure.:) Sick of getting calls from this number ... Every day for the last week at different times. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
I just flick them
spam, have blocked the number.
