I called back number (02) 9188 1050 it says the number I have dialed is not in service anymore. Caller: People Saver
Liz: received a call to advise me that I was a finalist in a competition from a survey I’d answered. I asked which survey, the guy said ‘the one you answered’ -sigh... ok let’s play.. He asked how I would like to be notified if I win, I said use the email address given on the survey. He asked me to state the email to verify and I refused, I simply told hi, to use the one on the survey. He then asked to verify if I lived at xxxx postcode x suburb - I haven’t lived there for over 7 years but I said yes. He then asked me to confirm I was the authorised electricity account holder - I asked the relevance of this in relation to a $500 Woolworths grocery card - apparently Woolworths use this to confirm the winner’s identity.. sure but let’s keep playing.... so I said no, I am neither the account holder nor authorised on the account. He asked for the account holder details which I said I couldn’t give him as that would be a breach of privacy without their explicit authority to do so. He got narky at this point and before hanging up said ‘well you’re not likely to win, are you!’ Damn... I really hoped I would win
Called back and surprise surprise number not in service. Just block it. Would love to know when our government is going to do something about these spam callers tagging on through computers unused and unconnected numbers. Appalling. Caller said it was about my electricity account. As soon as I told him I didnt have one he hung up real quick. Keeps on calling, doesn't leave a message. Blocked Caller: Stated People Saver
Guy said they would over me better deal on my Electricity. I repeatedly asked where he was from but kept saying 'I will transfer you to someone who will explain. This guy knew my name, DOB & address. The 2nd guy launched into his speal but I had to insist that I must know who he is representing. Went on with "we will save you 27% off your electricity but I said "STOP" who do you represent? Eventually he told me he was from 'People Saver'. I stated that they were not my provider & I wasn't interested, IF I wanted to do anything about my electricity, I would BUT NOT KNOW. He hung up. This is disturbing 1) that he had so much information about me & 2) I am on DO NOT DISTURB register. I have blocked him & will phone my provider to complain
Caller: People Saver
Called saying they were from people saver, I asked him what part of f*ck off don't you understand.
Don't answer this call. It seems they also try to get you to say or repeat certain things which is a major red flag for identity theft (recording and using your voice).
Similar to everyone else they say it is about your electricity bill, I have received dozens of calls which I didn't answer. Finally I answered to say 'remove me from your list' after being told he was from Peoplesaver, and they guy asked me to repeat 'who am i calling from', and became increasingly aggressive when I refused and told him he should know where he's calling from. Highly distburbing practice - warn your friends and family.
A spoofed number that can't be called back. Sure fire sign of grubby scammers. Block the number. DO NOT ANSWER
Seem to be pretty sophisticated because I got a SPAM email yesterday for a Woolworths survey offering a $500 prize (which I deleted), and then today a call from this number (which I did not answer).
To underline this -
My credit card details were stolen last week and $1,000 in charges run up.
Also found and deleted two Trojan malwares from my laptop last night.
This chain of events is not a coincidence.
Caller: People/power savers
DO NOT VERIFY YOUR DETAILS.
Setting up a recording app on my phone so I can have some fun with them next time...
SAME SAME I think its a prank caller don't give them your information! Caller: People Saver
Apparently I filled in a survey for "People Saver" (whoever they are) and have been shortlisted to win the prize so to "make sure I have my phone on me next week"? Last week the calls from numbers beginning with "9188" were an energy comparison service, now they're giving me a heads up on the competition i never entered but MIGHT win??
Claimed I could get a 46% discount off my electricity account with them - another scam. I am very sick of them. dam these scammers. I have them blocked but because telstra has talk to text messages I still get the missed call notification,but they still won't stop sick of these calls .Block this number has been blocked, why are calls still coming through. Phone number is not listed or operational (disconnected) The sign that this is a scammer calling. phones multiple times a day but hangs up whenever I answer assumedly from my having sent them packing on a prior occasion. From reading the forum it is a electricity provider scam....they try to transfer you to another provider to attain a fee from their purported provider that will get you a better deal..... given the chance they will change that provider next week for another fee (round robin scam) DON'T GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION......DON"T VERIFY ANY DETAILS THEY MAY ALREADY HAVE.....BEWARE OF IDENTITY THEFT. BEWARE OF YOUR INFORMATION GETTING INTO THE WRONG HANDS TO YOUR DETRIMENT....DON'T TALK TO THEM (they can cut and paste the contents of your voice to create a purported sentence to affirm your agreement to whatever they like and to your detriment >>>>SIMPLY HANG UP. ….DO NOT ENGAGE.....who knows the phone call could be for the purpose of ascertaining whether or not you are at home with the intent of robbery rings and hang up and when rang noe one answers3 called 3 times in the space of 15 minutes...left no message......blocked number...if they do not leave a message then it is not important.
