I have now had 3 phone calls from these people claiming to be from Freedom Insurance. They wanted me to hand over my full name and date of birth (which made me suspicious in the first place) but would not let me know what they wanted to talk about.
I ended up ringing Freedom Insurance on their 1300 number and they knew nothing about the calls. Number has now been blocked on my phone
Got a call from this number. Picked up. They hung up! If you didn't want to talk to me why call in the first place.
Blocked the number now based on the comments before mine. Thanks everyone for sharing this information so I don't have to go through this multiple times.
They call and then hang up 😡 Stop wasting my time that's twice today if it's important leave a flaming message I have a freedom insurance plan already and this is the second time they've called me today. If they continue to harass me, I will cancel my policy altogether. I called back number (02) 8279 2971 just kept on ringing no one answered the call and never got any voice mail. insurance ompany couple of notes about Freedom Funeral Insurance
1. Uses Indian call centre to initially spruik for your contact details, first they say "this call is being recorded"
2. Aussie call centre rings you back, almost immediately saying "this call is being recorded"
3. Any name and bank account number you give Freedom Insurance and they will begin deducting fortnightly payments for funeral insurance straight away,
If you know somebody elses details, you can sign them up without their permission or knowledge. Freedom Insurance never checks validity of caller their priority is to get the money out of the bank account.
4. Data given to any of the telemarketers is shared across networks, days later unsolicited phone calls begin, more telemarketers, especially asking for the name which was provided to them in the phonecalls.
5. Judging from what you find searching google, it is virtually impossible to claim for a funeral if you are physically deceased or have no family aware you have a funeral insurance policy.
I called back again. Freedom Insurance. I called back number (02) 8279 2971 Reached ivr for a company called Freedom Insuracne.

Not too sure which company they work for but it was clear it was debt collector of some kind.
