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 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. 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." who knows who this is - try to ring back and it says an extension number (which changes all the time) is busy. 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! Caller said his name was Michael
Said he wanted to know if we had solar panels.
I said; no we have a diesel generator.
He said; so you are connected to the grid
I said; no we have a diesel generator as the grid is stuffed.
His reply; OK and then hung up.
Let it go through to answering machine - never leave a message - sometimes "goodbye"
would block no but difficult on landline - just a bloody nusiance
Missed the call at 6:45 tonight. If I don't recognise a number I check it out here.... and I'll block this one from calling back on my mobile Ignored this as number not known - rings out - no message left. SPAM. Didn't bother answering. Blocked number. Pests. Tell them to p*** off. Yep, Solar Panels rebate scheme scam - told them "No" , hung up, and she rang again 20 seconds later. Hung up again. he asked for me by my last name then said something about solar panels
I asked ....why does this number rings every day only to say "goodbye' and hang up...... he hung up at that point.
seems to be a scam or at the least not very professional
Scam. Had name and address right and the speel was I was entitled to thousands of dollars in a power rebate. I said I wasn't interested but then he rang back. I asked for more info before I would answer any questions. He got pretty indignant and hung up. Caller said he wanted to tell me about the government subsidy on solar. I walked away from the phone and left it off the hook after telling him I shouldn't receive this type of call as I am on the do not call register. I do know that being on the register doesn't stop this type of call. Receive this call regularly and when I answer they hang up. Now blocked.
