No one was speaking and when you call back it hangs up This number (02) 9131 4030 is a scam call centre. As highlighted by others who have posted, they never leave a message and you certainly have no means of getting through to someone, in case you are tempted to return the call.
Authorities should be clamping down and barring this number. Moreover, persons or businesses registered with this number who then attempt to apply for a new number should be prevented from doing so. A national register of scam operators should be developed (let's start 'naming and shaming) and tracked via ASIC every time they attempt to re-register under a new business name. These operators are becoming increasingly sophisticated and attempt to obtain as much information about the person they are calling as possible.
In the past, scam operators were about letting you know that you had inherited a sum of money or had won a prize. They now are after 'yes' and 'no' responses and combine this with seeking out your first name and surname, before canvassing the Internet for your profile on social media and your suburb etc. They in turn use this information for the purposes of identity theft/fraud, theft of property and access to financial information, including your banking details.
The fact that these 'scammers' exist suggests that they are having a level of success in obtaining the level of information they require.
It's time our regulations and laws caught-up with scam/con artists. Otherwise, we risk tax payers money being wasted trying to bring them to justice.
trying to offer Coles Myer vouchers for completing a survey. scam This number calls everyday none stop. Yet when calling back it automatically hangs up. Rang and hung up after answering. Answered their call - They claimed I entered a survey to win $1000 voucher for coles but then went on to say I did not win the major prize but I did win an android tablet. He claimed I entered sometime earlier this year and wanted to verify some questions. First of all the surname he mentioned was my previous name before marriage 8 years ago. So there is no way I would have used the name he claimed. He said I could only recieve the gift when I agreed to sit with a Freedom insurance person that would take about 45 min. I refused any further discussion with him knowing it was a scam. I asked for his head office number which he proceeded to give me 0431 then the phone just happened to cut off. Just scammers. DO NOT give them any info. True Solution Australia selling you their financial freedom package Just wish they would stop ringing. It just becomes frustrating. Just received a call from (02) 9131 4049. I did not answer and I do remember blocking these type of number but looks like they have a huge range where they can call from :( Very annoying. They also tried to get me with a Free Tablet offering advice on Superannuation.
WARNING - They ask very personal information like who's name is on the Deed to the House and can you quickly send me a copy of your last payslip PRERABLY with your banking details so we know "its legitimate." They went so far as to confirm my adress to drop off free tablet. I knew they were dubious when so called manager doing a customer service follow up call said that the person attending the superannuation appointment would dropoff tablet. BE CAREFUL as they come across really legitimate.
this number (02) 9131 4030 continuously calling my mobile but does not leave any message at all. I called back but it rings out so I just blocked the caller. after reading all the other comments here...it seems that the advertising people seems to be sharing my mobile numbers. It is so annoying and I want to know how to stop it. like everyone says they call and hang up pain in the arses called my phone numerous times but because I did not recognise the number I didn't answer until today they called again and I answered but they hung up. They called me and promised me a android tablet if I sat down and spoke to their sales person for 45 minutes tried to call them back phone just hangs up straight away I think it's a scam they had my date of birth and address and name they made an appointment and no nothing further Same as above. Answered and it hangs up. Had multiple calls Rang then hung up after answering. they have called me two days in a rowe. I just answered the last call and after after saying hello twice he finally ask if i was carol and when i replied yes he hung up Keep getting calls they hung up like they are transferring got a free tablet for sitting down at my place listening to a financial expert for 45 min. got some decent advise about tax to will I was there As above, they said that I won something then they hung up, probably some salesperson is trying to reach their no of calls quota.
