This person just tried to call me regarding an electricity bill Now I know 'scam' from all your comments. My policy is not to answer any identified number - and as you say if someone needs to get hold of you legitimately they will leave message. My blocked numbers far exceed my known contacts. As soon as I realised this was a nuisance call, I laid my phone on my desk and let the caller waste her time and money. It won't stop the calls, but gives me a slight sense of satisfaction!! kept calling, didnt answer. reported and blocked number called back this number after a missed call, immediately put through to the sound of an office phone ringing. like not the normal ringing noise when you call someone, the recording of an office phone ringing. so weird. I called them back once and without introducing themselves or even mentioning the company, the person with an Indian accent stated "you must've received a missed call, thank you for calling, am I speaking to (they already knew my name)?
I asked who they were and again without mentioning the company the guy simply said we are an electricity company.
I asked how they got my number and how they knew who I was and apparently I signed up for telemarketing calls about electricity, but never mentioned when and where I allegedly signed up.
I told them that I never signed up for anything and was then advised that all their conversations are recorded so why would they lie. ANY reputable company will not only tell you up front that all calls are recorded before launching into anything, they'll also introduce themselves and the company they work for. They wouldn't just vaguely tell you that they're an electricity company.
Just block these calls as it's unprofessional and possibly a scam.
Tried to call me 3 times but i never picked up, just blocked them The caller said to me they were changing my electricity account as I will get 25% off if I pay on time. Not can we see if we can get you a better deal. No said they are and will change it. Also asked if I was on any Centerlink benefits, as I could get a further discount. Gave me his name and ID number and then asked me for my address. I said are you changing my electricity account he said yes. I said NO! your not I am happy with my supplier. He then said who is your supplier. I didnt tell him just kept saying I am happy with my supplier and dont want to change he kept insisting. By now I am pretty angry and said No!! again please take my number off the call list and hang up and blocked the number. I had a couple of calls from this number today. The first time they asked to speak to me (using my name), I wouldn't give my name, just asked what this was about....hang up. Second time again....hangup.
They don't seem to like it if you don't confirm your name.
Scam call and very rude Indian caller Claim to be from business let us compare and about electricity. unprofessional and trying to get information. After stonewalling them they hung up. A seller of energy services. Does anyone use the Domino's pizza app? You might be unknowingly giving consent to Domino's to share your personal info. with third parties. Definitely scam.....Answered for the first time which was about some electricity bill offers......got called several times....finally blocked the number... I did not pick up assuming a message would be left. But I did receive 4 calls from this number over three hours This number has tried calling me a couple of times today - call centre. Block this number. Scammers watch out. Spam called me don't know this number callme again asking questions about me what it sale i hung up.. 😈😈How the blary the got my number?? 😈 Kept calling but didn't pick up the phone. Very annoying. Annoying telemarketers wanting to sell me their crap electricity service. Not sure how they get personal details but keep calling on different number Calling at least once a day, any time of day or night. Finally picked up and it just hangs up.
