Been getting the same calls from (02) 9191 1653 for the last 3 weeks, 3 to 4 times a day, started after I picked-up the call 3 weeks ago, the guy at the other end was claiming he was from CitiBank selling life insurance, didn't want to end the call even after I told him I already have a life insurance from elsewhere, so I asked him to email me the information, then he asked me for my email address, so I told him if he was really from Citibank, he would have my email address on file already, he said he just wanted to confirm my correct email address, I didn't give it to him, no email from CitiBank selling insurance since, but the calls have kept coming 3-4 times a day every day. Before this, I used to get similar calls from at least 3 different numbers, REALLY HAD ENOUGH OF THESE HARRASSMENTS! I have been harrassed for two weeks with up to five calls in one day. I have left a message that if I receive another call from them I will be going to the Police I have all their calls logged on my phone. This is getting beyond a joke they called me for months and hung up when i answer finally i spoke to someone they offered me insurance and asked for my email to send details there was a crowd cheer on phone when i gave them my email but they never sent details I agree it must be Citibank. I spoke to them yesetrday and they carried on about how someone would be calling me regardig insurance, I said NO, but yet today I got a call, and note that others mention Citibank. yes I get hounded by these two numbers as well.(02) 9191 1653 and and (02) 9191 1620 I try to call back and get the recorded message.. I finally left a message to say "STOP CALLING ME I AM NOT INTERESTED" by they just dont give up! Hey chaps,
It's actually not a scam. However, it is greatly annoying and should be avoided. I recently had an unauthorised transaction on my Citibank credit card. I called up and cancelled my card etc., but just before I hung up I was told I would be called regarding life insurance and other Citibank insurance products. It's just them. So like I said, no scam - but equally annoying!
just got a call form this number claiming to be from Citibank and was selling life insurance.
He even knew my birth date, which he asked me to confirm... towards the end he asked for my account details, which I didnt give.
When I called back the number, it was a recorded message asking to leave my contact details and a Citibank representative would call me back.
Scam, scam, scam, telephone SPAM
This sort of thing needs to be outlawed.
This is the same Citibank scam as reported for (02) 9191 1620. It's disturbing these people have got hold of enough customer details to fish for more.
