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
Called, didn't speak straight away so I hung up. 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. Total scam, here's why:
1. There's the automated delay as they connect to a person, which indicates they're using a machine to cold-call random numbers.
2. If you don't identify yourself, "Hello, <FirstName> speaking", etc... They ask to speak to the owner of the 'account' without stating who that is. If you're from the sales dept. and you're cold calling a particular user about their account, it's infront of you.
3. Immediately asking for my 4-digit PIN, which is only needed if we are making changes to the account (at my request).
4. Called Vodafone, confirmed not real.
Vodafone list all the official numbers that they use to call customers on their Customer Care page.
This is one of the listed numbers.
i'm so glad for reverse phone, another rip off merchant Called me and asked for PIN right away. I said I have no idea what the PIN is (lie obliviously). Then she literally said "Oh, can you take a guess at what it is?", I replied with, "Nah I'll call Vodafone myself later and sort it out". She hung up...
Definitely seems to be a scam.
for the morons:
1/ the break you hear between the answering and their talking, is the time it takes for them to take their microphone off mute.
2/ not a scam, and Vodafone didn’t tell you it’s not a real number..it’s literally listed on their website
Lots of misinformation out there because of stupid comments.
f*cken Indian accent guy calling. It is a scam . Vodaph said it is not their number. Vdaph advised me to block this number. Hate India people. They should stop fooling Australians and stay in their f*cken countries ...bloody liars and cheaters . Wouldn't stop ringing Vodafone send offers by text not cold call.
The number is not the actual caller's number it is really coming from India and masked as being from NSW.. DO NOT answer it.
I don't believe this is Vodafone - yes it is their voice recorded message when call back the number but I'm not a vodaphone customer! It is vodafone, but they should never do this. This practice gives vodafone a huge and questionable security hole be making an equivalent scam call sound valid. 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... Caller: Vodafone
People, THIS IS VODAFONE! I just called them back and they confirmed this.
It's legit vodafone, left a message to call back about an offer. The number they left is a Vodafone number. 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.
A guy from India, apparently from Vodaphone, very unprofessional call, first thing he asked me is my pin. He was telling me that as a valued customer he will be sending me a free IPAD but first I will have to confirm the pin. So dodgy who would give you a free IPAD these days??!.. He wouldn't want to communicate about anything until I will tell him my pin..So I ended the call...I think its a scam and if it was Vodaphone, they should give their employees some proper training!
