I called back number (02) 9037 2532 reached voice mail for a company called Cole Financial Services. Caller: Coles Financial Services
After receiving numerous missed calls from Coles Financial Services, I answered one yesterday and some woman who I could barely understand rattled on about a special offer just for me. Needless to say, all the alarm bells started to ring and I told her that I did not act on unsolicited calls and that I suspected that call to be a scam and hung up.
I then went to the Coles Financial Services internet site to alert them to those calls, saying that I believed them to be scam but if they were not, they should be discontinued.
I received a response from Citigroup this morning confirming that the calls originated from them and I could 'opt out' by doing so through their internet site.
Well, rather than doing this, I wrote an email to Coles to complain about Citibank (probably the worst bank in Australia), it is up to Coles to instruct the provider to stop harassing customers!
Persistently calling me, which I'm not answering. Funny how they never leave a message, they're just a missed call. If citibank keep this type of harassment going I will go back to my previous provider. At least get telemarketers who can speak just a little English. Must be idiots. In all of the years I have had my Coles Mastercard there has never been a problem - until the event of citibank. Bad move Coles. Caller: coles financial services
first reaction this was a scam had lots of my details kept wanting me to confirm the data caller Phillapino but local nsw number sent alarm bells ringing ....not a good look for Coles .... turns out it was legit to allay my fears rang CFS on 1300 number was a loan offer @8.9%
Caller: Supposedly 'Coles Financial Services' for an update on my Mastercard
Coles have never called me before about an update on my Coles Mastercard. I suspect it is a scam.
Caller: claimed to be Coles Financial Services
can hardly understand what she tried to say. hang up straight away.
Caller: Coles Financial Services
Telemarketing pest. 😡
coles financial services Caller: Claimed to be from Coles
Called at 19.57 - I answered it with caller speaking very poor English. Said they were from Coles asked if I could see the number they were calling from (I think to try to demonstrate it was legit!) and then said the call may be recorded. I remained suspicious and when they said they were from Coles calling about a rate offer, I just said I wasn't interested and hung up. I do have a Cole CC but if they start to harass me I wont for much longer!
I think this is Coles/Citibank the worst bank in Australia....they are sooo terrible...really rude... Caller: Coles Financial services
Thanks for the information everyone. I have received 2 calls from this number in the last month. I have now blocked it.
Caller: Don't know
I received a phone call from this number and nobody was on the line. I said hello a few times and still no answer, so I hung up. I typed the number into Google and found all of these complaints. Thank you !
I do have a Coles credit card. They sent me an email asking for me to tell them my occupation and nationality via the secure messaging system. I queried why they need to know this information and, if it was important, why isn't it a field in my online profile. Their response was dodgy. Go away ...
I keep getting calls from this number around about 10 calls over the last couple of weeks, almost every day. I don't answer because I don't know the number and they never leave a message. It is particularly annoying. Caller: As above : Coles Financial
No message left. Never answer unknown number.
2 calls from this number. They never leave a message and I never answer. I don’t have a Coles credit card but I do have FlyBuys that I use at my local Coles. Long beep then hang up, I have blocked them 2nd call from this number. I never pick up and they never leave a message i just got the exact same spiel Caller: Previously Coles Financial Services
I have spoken to them previously and felt that their speil sounded like a scam. I told them I'm not interested but they persist in multiple calls.
