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. Called, didn't speak straight away so I hung up. 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! 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 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.
i'm so glad for reverse phone, another rip off merchant Received a call and when I answered and said hello, I was met with the hang-up tone. 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. 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.
This number consistently calls me and they don't say anything when you answer the call so i just hung up I just received a call from this number...I answered and said "hello" - no reply. I said "hello" again and a man replied in a very muffled voice with a very strong accent saying who knows what as it was completely incoherent & then he hung up. I panicked as I thought I might have been the victim of one of those scam callers who hack into your phone & so I dialled the number back only to hear a Vodafone recorded message saying "Hi there, we recently contacted you....."
Hey Vodafone - you didn't recently contact me - you basically freaked me out thinking that I was being hacked. Not impressed. Go away Vodafone!!
They have been calling me every day for a week now. Thanks to all of you I know it's a scam! The number is now blocked! I have not answered any of the 12 calls from this number. Talk to your local Vodaphone representative first as i did. And never give up your pin . This is scam. Beware As soon as I answered, they hung-up. They were offering to upgrade my plan as they noticed I went over my usage last month and were offering additional 3GB data for an extra $10. Not a good deal as the deals online were showing a lot more data for the same price - questioned this and was able to get a lot more data for the same price. Missed the call, but they left an empty message on my voicemail. Seems suspicious.
