    Caller: Max

    Max, from Melbourne, wanted to replace light globes, knew exactly where I lived and phone number, I asked what the weather was like and for his details and he hung up. Scary when they know so much.

    Australia
    Caller: the usual scum

    asked to change to led lights, told them that I am on a 12v system and there are no leds available, also said that if the solar lights don't work I use candles, he became abusive and i told him to F__k off and hung up. Got constant phone calls for the next 2 days. If people want a number stopped you have to get in contact with the provider of the phone line that the scum use, easy as doing an email

    The same as everyone else. Stated he was calling from some government scheme to replace our lights. I stated if we wanted to replace our lights we would do so ourselves. He then said why would you do that when you can have it done for free. Because it's a scam, l replied. He was going to respond but hung up. I tried calling the number but after quite a delay there was just an engaged tone. I hate scammers!

    The trouble is with these light globe replacement scams is, we, the taxpayer, are actually funding them.
    need urgent action.

    Called to replace light globes and wanted to know when I would be home. I hung up. Very hard to understand the lady.
    Sick of constant nuisance calls on mobile and landline, beyond a joke but nothing will ever be done about it.

    HINT: Every time I get a phone call from these low-life buggers. I dial *60 in front of their number it rings a few times. Then I get an operator pick up & say the number is not in SERVICE. Which I LOVE cause they can NO LONGER CALL ME ON THEIR NUMBER!

    I received a call from this number, the man said he will be in my area tomorrow and can put new lights for me, he wanted to know what time I would be available. I told him, since he had my address, he could leave the lights at my front door and I would change it myself. He shouted that I should stop my Asian mentality and then proceeded to laugh when I asked why he called me Asian and when I told him he should not call me again, he said he will call again and again and I can’t do anything about it.

    Caller: "Free" light bulb installers

    Wanted to make an appointment for "qualified electrician" to install energy efficient light bulbs. Told him wasn't interested and that when we were, would choose someone from the government's list of approved suppliers. He argued with me, so I hung up.

    Said he was changing light globes throughout the state, I said I live in the Northern Territory, he called me a liar, I asked to be removed from the list and said he would make sure I get calls every half an hour. Very threatening.
