fake Vodafone call asking for my pin straight away about an update to save me money I have straight away cut the call in two minutes. They sounded fake. ! ! Sorry but to me that's not good enough. That can be faked by a technique known as 'phishing'.
Please, think about this
1. If they are simply offering an upgrade, why would they need your PIN?
2. I NEVER give out my PIN (or Tax File Number, etc) to an incoming call - because of hacking scams
this is 100% vodafone, i call vodafone 5 min after this call and they confirmed it was from theyre sales department. Call them yourself if your ever unsure. It's legit vodafone, left a message to call back about an offer. The number they left is a Vodafone number. Just got a call from this number (1140am Sydney) - I always answer the phone "hello <my name> speaking." There was a bit of a wait, then a click, then some static & a man saying "yes hello, is this <my name>?" I didn't answer but hung up straight away... Called, didn't speak straight away so I hung up. It's not a fake number. If you speak to them they'll send you a text directly from Vodafone confirming you're speaking with them.
You can also find confirmation that the number is real here: http://vodafone.intelliresponse.com/index.jsp?interfaceID=1&ID=-1&requestType=&respId=&source=1&question=Missed+call+from+vodafone&NormalRequest=Ask
They are just calling to ask if you want to upgrade your plan.
Asked if I'd like to switch over to Telstra as they are aware their service is rubbish. People in here are saying the number is legitimate when it is not.
This is a fake number, they will ask for your Vodafone pin and use it to port your mobile number to a sim card they can use.
They can reset passwords linked with this number.
I contacted Vodafone and they said it was not a legit number, and they blocked an attempt to port my number.
Be safe people.
They have been attempting to call me for a month, i added them to my reject list a while ago but noticed yesterday they were still trying to call 5 times. They even tried calling me on private a few seconds after i saw them calling with their number showing but obviously got rejected straight away. GET LOST! I only just upgraded a few months ago so there is no reason for them to be calling me!! Its a vodafone number, tried calling back and its their sales line - its now blocked haha Rings then hangs up... Didn't leave a voicemail More prefer as a scam call. As I called vodafone and the staff advised me that every call from vodafone should be a private call. And it is not make sense to me to provide my PIN as I do not have any enquiries recently. Just had a call from this number now, Same deal,
heard the 'click' after about 4/5 seconds then just sounded like background chatter as I've said "Hello" 3/4 times, No reply so number is Blocked!!
Hard to say if it's Voda or not, But EITHER WAY, any pecker ringing me & asking ME to tell them MY pin is gunna get told to fook off.
This is vodaphone I just did my block at them they are calling to upgrade stuff on accounts and even after telling them I don’t need any and I keep getting them Keep calling about important update. I visited a branch and they want to offer an upgrade. Wish I could get rid of these scam phone calls, I can't block them on my phone. I have a silent number,so I thought. Would not answer any of my questions, like which date is Vodaphone 2G ending - no doubt leading to a 'new plan' pitch. I said I'd go to a store and ended conversation.
