These guys tried to call twice this morning. I answered and there was laughing in the background. The guy said his name was Donni. He said he was calling about an accident I had in the last 12 months and that he was calling from the first response team. He then hung up. The phone number is (02) 8355 9968 A man from "First Response" advising I'd been in a motor vehicle accident in the last 12 months. Scary he had my name! Ethnic wanting to speak to my wife 'about the car accident ' she was involved in - no such event. Tried to call back and got a 'disconnected' message for the number. These d*ckheads just called me saying the same in these post and knew my name. very frustrating that these scums can get hold of our personal details with an attached phone number..... called him out and yup he just hung up. SCAMMERS!!!! Trying to tell me I've been in a car accident and they are the 'first response team'. Then trying to get me asking 'well has anyone in your family been in a car accident?'. What type of scum try to trick people with this sick questioning. Does anyone know how they are?? Just had a call from these guys - they knew my name! Said he was from 'First Response' and was calling about a car accident I had been in during the last 12 months. I've never been in a car accident!!! I have this number call me every day. I don't answer it. I decided to call it and I get a message saying its a wrong number. I got a similar call, asking about a car accident in the past 12 months. When I said I hadn't had one, he hung up pretty quickly. He also said he was from First Response. I reported the details here: https://www.scamwatch.gov.au/report-a-scam
Don't know if it'll make a difference but oh well...
call from this number, no one speaks from the other end and then hangs up. tried to call back says disconnected number. how can they call if it was disconnected. Can we do something about this number, any advise? Ethnic from First Response saying I had an accident last year - I said no I didnt and if I did thats a hell slow "First Response"- nice try what r u up to buddy? Line dropped out mysteriously.....jerks I just had a call today about my car accident last year. This guy new my details, don't know how. At the end he asked for my rego and didn't provide it to him. Weirdo but curious as to how he got my information about my car accident. How do I stop from him calling me and now he knows my details. They hung up as soon as I answered. just had a call from this number asking if I had been involved in a recent car accident in the last twelve months or if a family member was. Seems like a busy call centre in the background as well. I told him I do not drive. He hung up quickly. Yep I block it every time and still it gets through I just had a call I let them go on for 10 mins and then told them,I have never been in an accident and do not even have a Drivers Licence.
I then told them I was reporting them to ACMA
Claimed they were from First Response Team and get there info from the national Accident Database????? he quickly hung up when he was faced with the "tough questions"
This guy rang me this morning , really arrogant and laughing to his mates at the call centre before he introduced himself to me, from "First Response" and that I had been in an accident in the past 12 months . I told him I hadn't , and was trying to get the details because it sounds like fraud but he kept insisting I had . His parting shot was a few expletives and hung up . I tried ringing back because it was pretty nasty , but the number wouldn't connect .
What a bunch of losers
This phone number calls my phone at least 3 times a week. Never leaves a message I reiterate all of the above. TOTALLY DODGY This is a scammer number - called asking if I had been involved recently in a car accident or in the last 12 months and wanting to reclaim money. When I asked for details of the accident all they could tell me was my suburb. I called them out straight away and said, this sounds like a scam to me, at which point he laughed and said, definitely not, but I will update your details, he thanked me for taking the call and then hung up - SCAMMMMMMMMER
So Long Sucker
The caller wanted to compensate me for an injury I supposedly recieved in a motor vehicle accident .. I had not had an injury. I called back after I told him I would google the National Accident Database whom he said were the ones who passed on my info ..but the number he called from was disconnected
