Dodgy as. Sounds legit but don’t trust its dodgy
Caller: (02) 8629 4008
Basically how it works is whenever you do banking or you are having a finacial settlement happening, especially with a third party, somewhere along the line your personal details are sold by nefarious people, who make money by selling your details to scammers in india.
Then an indian women will connect to a proxy phone line in Australia which this number (02) 8629 4008 to seen legit and calling from Australia. Their pathetic attempt at an Australian accent gives it away easily.
Do not give any details to them. The best way to completely waste their money on your details is by sowing doubt in their information accuracy. Tell these scammers that they must have the wrong person and that their information must be wrong, or they have the wrong number or that this isn't their "targets" number. Best way to completely disrupt their operations and throwing a spanner in their works.
I got the call from these guys asking about a financial health check. Only gave details about my name and got on google while on the call to find this page. Hung up and called CBA back to advise them of a fraudulent number but was advised that it was indeed them calling to enquire if I wanted further assistance with a home loan enquire. Told the CBA guy on the phone that it was a bit odd in the way they’ve called, to which he agreed, but assured that the call was legitimate.

This number called me today at 2.59pm with ID of Blacktown New South Wales. I know no one from Blacktown and figured it was a fake so didn't answer call.
Called number and went to recorded message asking for account number and of course didn't give it. Caller: CBA
Said they were calling to see if it was a good time to chat and if i needed any financial help etc... Since when do CBA call at this time when they cant even open their banks on a Saturday
They rang and left no message. Tried calling number from a different phone, wouldn't even connect. Why are they even allowed to call when they are clearly dodgy ? I called back number (02) 8629 4004 reached IVR for Commonwealth Bank. Caller: CBA
sh*t! I just had this number call me, asked me my name, dob & address which I gave her.. she said it was about a home loan which I have been saving for but haven’t enquired about it. Should I be concerned? Can they do anything with my personal details. I didn’t think anything of it until I hung up.
Surprisingly the number and the call about home loans is legitimate.
Thought it was a scam as well but called CBA and they confirmed the department that called, the time of the call and who I spoke with.
Missed call, didn't leave a message. Caller: CBA
This is CBA. I was looking on the CBA website about home loans then a few days later got a call from this number. It is legitimate and they are calling if you have enquired about something online.
Want to get my bank details. completely funny. Caller: Cba
Spammers asking for your account / card details.
Number comes through as Blacktown NSW
They keep calling me baby but they don’t say my name Interestingly the commonwealth bank has a FAQ page where they say the number is "(02) 8629 4003", not "(02) 8629 4004" (the last digit is a 3 rather than a 4) Caller: People claiming to be CBA
Hung up a call from the actual CBA number after being on hold for 45 minutes to answer this number from people claiming to be CBA about future home loans. I have never mentioned once about home loans to any of the ladies at my branch. CBA never call out. Like ever. Do not give any personal details to them this is definitely a scam! Will be complaining once i get on to the real CBA
