This number is linked to a phone scam using centrelink as the bait My 80 year old brother was just scammed by these thieves telling him they owed him money, does anyone know what he needs to do to try and recover his money? Just had the same call from this number .. i hang up after listening to the bull . scammer . they should get a life instead of trying to rip us off of the little we have . Received a message from a crude computer generated voice giving this number to call. They wanted personal details associated with CentreLink. Without being racist the voice I spoke to were difficult to understand and were from "Eastern sounding voices" . The ACCC confirm scam. Started with computer generated voice saying problem with CentreLink account
Phone (02) 8378 7970 quote ref number given. The person I spoke to said I had a back payment due to me as govt had underpaid ($2480.46) and this would be sent by cheque but if I registered I could get direct deposit (like the payments are now) a refundable fee would apply. Even made an appointment at local CentreLink for me. So I went very early and guess what they had no record of an appointment and there is no back payment due.
ACCC know it is a scam CentreLink know as well.
Keep your eyes and ears open!
Seriously funny scammers...scumbags, but ya gotta laugh at their attempt! I also had call saying it was Centrelink. I thought that it was a scam and later called Centrelink who confirmed that it was. Received a call stating from Centerlink and asking me to provide personal details
