    Caller: They allege to be from Mentors Arena

    Scammers calling from "Mentors Arena" - they alleged I signed up for more info (I didn't) and wanted to pitch some stock market investing education. At first they claimed this was free, then said it was a seven day free trial. When I pushed for pricing they then said it was $USD 1000. Then, after more pressing, they said they get you to invest side-by-side with the "mentor" and they take a cut of your money. This suggests to me they get you to use their software or have access to your account or bank details. Anyhow, they had thick overseas accents and given the talk of US dollars it's clear they're not even pretending to be an Australian organisation.

    They claimed their website is mentorsarena.com

    The lady was upset when I asked if she goes home and feels good about what she's achieved that day and if she has contributed to society.

    Scam call
    Australia
    Caller: "Same as above"; Philipino Boiler Room!!/ (Possibly PRC !!)

    Have blocked over 50 of these Bastards calls 1-3 times per day, in the last 6 months! Today we had (02) 8858 2009, (02) 8103 9277, & (02) 8398 9159 !! (There Ain't NO Numbers structured like this here-!!) Have just started to answer them Yesterday ( to find out what sh*t They Were Up To!!, and ) to tell them what Scamster Bastards they are !!

    Phone either goes dead, or they pretend the line is bad, etc. Chinese girl this morning, claiming to be from London, but her English Grammar was so bad, she kept addressing me by my Surname, as if I was Chinese. Phone number is also the best, and a dead giveaway, as it always starts in brackets (02) then 8... Ring Telstra, they'll tell you that no NSW, nor any other State number begins with an 8 !! Let it ring, it always 'times out' at 28-29 seconds, cause they're working on 'a numbers - game', ie., the more numbers they crank through, the sooner that they'll find an Idiot to Scam some CA$H out of!! Either tell them what a piece of sh*t they are, or wait 29 secs, and block that number for the future. Their Random Number Generator, gets a bit slack after it's used about 50 numbers, and cuts back to 1-2, or even no calls per day, and you start to notice that your phone has not only blocked 1 call, but sometimes 2-3 !! Give these sh*t Suckers Hell!!

    The Girl, with Heavy Chinese Accent this morning, claimed not only to be from London, but some Crap company called "Mentor Arena Educational Centre", and that her name was something like "Phasilie", as if it was supposed to sound Continental or European. Bitch wouldn't stop yacking down the line, when I asked her to repeat her Garbbled monologue, as if she was reading from some kind of Script, ...and that if she could just continue to talk over the top of me and finish whatever Rubbish she had to spout, that she'd have a better chance of Fooling me! Yeah - Right!! Apart from the Crap Reverse Call Phone Number, she couldn't even say my name right ... Back 2 Front!! (Felt like telling her to go enjoy her Rice, Singaporen Noodles, & Chop Suey!) The Dope yesterday, called himself Noah, before 3 minutes of Hard Grilling caused him to sh*t himself, and hang up!! Supposedly, I had attended their Webinar, about some kind of Online Stock Investing ...( I hadn't, and certainly Not Them! "Them" who've been Nuisance Calling for the last 6 months, on the same Fake Numbers, and being Black-Listed, ... only to Rearrange their numbers, and try all over again!!-!!)

    Told chick this morning that they were Scamsters, and that I was Blacklisting her number. She didn't seem too disturbed by this, said goodbye and hung up. They rang back about 3pm ... No sound, like they were waiting to see if they could get a repeat performance from me. They Did! And they tried again -stupidly as they Always Do, after 5pm. I don't accept calls between certain hours, so the 3rd time, didn't bother me at all! Oh and one last thing, if you try to call back their Reverse Call Numbers, your phone tells you that your unable to contact the sh*t that's just called you. Same deal with SMS, which is a pity, because then you could use wonderful Emojis like🖕😤😠💩💩💩!! Hope this helps any of you others out there, seeing as we can't actually smash these c*nts in the face!😊

    Caller: Mentors Arena

    I've been getting calls from the following numbers since December 2020, I've always ignored them because I have a "don't know the number, don't pick up" policy. Today I finally caved because I was curious and when I picked up, this girl with a Filipino accent said I've asked for financial info from Mentors Arena (which I never did). Luckily I have the laptop infront of me and I Googled "Mentors Arena" and this was the first thing that came up. I hung up while the girl was still babbling about some investment bullsh*t and quickly blocked & reported the number as spam. For everyone's information, here are the numbers they've tried to call me from - all of them have (02) at the front. 8212 5856, 8861 1007, 8803 0461, 8844 5645, 8873 3768, 8851 7567, 8899 5157, 8804 5726.

    Caller: Caller claims to be from Mentors Arena Education Centre

    I've had constant phone calls from (02) 8xxxx numbers, always different and I keep blocking them. I googled phone numbers and found that (02) 8 numbers have changed and they are now (02) 98 or (02) 91. Apparently the (02) 8xx numbers don't work after 1998. It would appear that this 'Mentors' company is using outdated numbers to see if people answer their calls but they don't actually answer. I answered a call a few days ago from a lady with an American accent. She said she had my phone number and email because I made an enquiry. I did not make any enquiry or provide my number and email. She insisted that I did and I told her to delete my details at once. She said she would and hung up. I haven't received other calls since but give it time and I'm sure they'll be back :/ Take care.

    I gotta call bout 2 hours ago. Gave them all my details and mastercard numbers. Then I googled mentor arena and this page came up. After reading the comments I logged into my account and transferred all monies to another account and blocked my card. Their phone number came up as No Caller ID. They are suppose to ring me tommorrow as I said I don't get paid till tommorrow. I am so looking forward to their call. Whateva. If they do ring I will play the dummy for a little while then abuse the sh*t outta them.

    Caller: Alex and Ray. Phone number is irrelevant. www.mentorsarea.com

    No point blocking phone number as they change them every time. Second time they have called from Mentorsarena.com. I'm a professional share trader in New Zealand so know how the industry works. They offer education and mentoring in financial markets, offering a $100 subscription for two months. I doubt if one will be educated about anything. The website is probably a shell. If you want a refund before the 7 days are out, you won't get it. Oh and they want you to put in another $100 for month 3 and 4 etc.

    same as above - Mentor Arena. Financial advice is not this cheap in Australia, if people are properly educated, experienced, licensed and insured. PLEASE REPORT THIS SCAM TO ACCC scamwatch.gov.au so they can stop future people being scammed.

    Caller: Alex and Brian

    Same as above. Called from (02) 8515 9199. I asked lots of questions of Alex who put me on to his manager Brian. Both with Israeli accents but calling from London. I got Brian off topic several times, onto covid, lock downs, vaccines, computer repairs and the difference between XP and windows 7. I said I had no Internet access so could not sign up, and when pressed, invented a son who I need to talk to before committing myself. Lots of related topics, kept it pleasant and him on the line for an hour. An amusing time and he will call back tomorrow. Definitely a scam as I have not signed up for nor made inquiries about online trading.

    Caller: Mentors Arena: Nancy

    Nancy have a Chinese Accent with a terrible attitude. She yelled at me, and spoke over me. When I complained about her attitude, she said it was just the way she talks. So rude.

    Anyway, I knew it's a scam from the start; they must have got my phone number and email address (spam email address; I would never use this email address for any educational purposes) back when I was younger, some site I signed up must have sold my data. That being said, I tried to waste their time for as long as I could, but only managed around 40 minutes.

    Now when I told her I saw *this* website saying it's a scam call, I told her. Then she said, all big companies have scammers making scam calls. Anyway, she got really mad at the end when I said she's a scammer and I asked her how much money she has made from scamming people, she yelled over my voice repetitively, "I don't think you're fully committed", then hanged up the phone.

    Please note, the website they wanted me to go on was www.mentorsarena.com
    I never clicked on this website and I don't think anyone else should too.

    Had a call from NSW from “ Mentors Arena”. Advised I had allegedly signed up to gain finical insight. Advised I hadn’t signed up for anything. They somehow knew my email address as well.
    Advised I hadn’t signed up for anything and wanted my information deleted from their system as they have obtained it illegally. The lady on the phone told me to look up their website, thankfully found this page first.
    Scammers.

    Same situation as previous callers, told I'd given my information to learn more about stocks and trading (which I didn't immediately think as suspicious because I had been extensively researching). Then kept trying to commit me to paying 100USD for a mentor and refused to listen when I told them my work was paying for me to learn the same material. Very pushy and would not take no for an answer, I told them when googling, their website didn't come up but this website of complaints for their scams did and that finally shut them up :)

    Caller: "Active Care Mentors Arena" Apparently

    I'd received numerous calls from various numbers in New South Wales, despite the fact that I live in South Australia. I always ignored them, but one time I answered and some lady told me that apparently they were going to provide me a mentor because I was interested in the financial market. I asked where she got my name and phone number from and she told me that it "was on their website". I wasn't too suspicious, because as a matter of fact, I had been extensively researching the stock market in the past week, but I knew this was going to be a scam when they claimed that they had a special voucher for me so I could get a discount on their course for 50 USD. Firstly, why the hell would an Australian company, supposedly calling from New South Wales, ask for a payment in USD?? I don't know how to block these guys because they have multiple different numbers, but just know that they are SCAMMERS.

    Just got the same call but from an "Unknown Caller". Said the same thing about me signing up to know more about investing which is odd. I did put my email into Motley Fool but I didn't think my number. I'm on the 'do not call' list for Australia too.

    They said it was $700 for the professional course but today only it's $100 and you get a mentor yadda yadda. She hung on the line on mute for 20 mins just talking it was weird I was working and I told her that. Super Philippino accent and just wouldn't let me go
