    Received recoreded message phone call from "Centrelink" stating we hadn't replied to their letters. As we received everything via the webb site and all centrelink numbers start 13 or 1800 I presume this is a hoax. Suggest avoiding.

    Caller claimed they were from Centerlink & I was due for a back payment. Then they wanted to send someone to my house for an appointment & I was to give then a Apple ITunes card to cover a registration fee. Then when I said I would to to a Centerlink office instead, they hung up on me.............obviously a scam !!!!!!!

    This number was also given to a friend by the scammers saying it was centre-link . Same format as previous saying they had to buy an ITunes card . Not sure what the SCAM is but if you see this number dont be polite!.

    Same circumstances as the rest - worried me as it was Friday night and I wanted to sort out the confusion with Centrelink before the weekend. When I rang the above number it was answered with as if it were Centrelink. Spooky. I was lucky they said call back on Monday so I had time to investigate. Last straw, I am getting rid of my landline, it's just used for scammers and people selling thinks. Mobile only from now on.

    "Centrelink" called and told me I had an increase in my pension, but I didn't fill in the paper work with the right information. I had to call them back with my details otherwise Centrelink would cut my pension.

    I also got the recorded message last night saying they were from Centrelink; very insistent that I had not responded to any of their previous correspondence and requesting I call back as soon as possible. Glad I looked here first before calling them on the telephone number (02) 8607 8601. I'm not even a Centrelink customer.
