They call at least 3 times every day. They claim to be Telstra. Heavy Indian accent. They humg up when I said I was an emergency line and they needed to give me their 8 digit access code. When they tried to give me one (hahaha) I then said misuse of this emergency line would be traced to their location and they would be individually fined &100,000. They stuttered, said they had the wrong number and hung up. (Lions 1, Gladiators Nil) Caller: Scam
Block this number
Caller: I didn’t answer
Received a call from this number but i didn’t recognise the number & let it go to vm. Googled the number & found this thread. Thank you all. Number now blocked!
solar solar solar when will it stop Next time they call I will blow my Vuvuzela in their ear they will never call again as they will be deaf for life Did not pick up then no voicemail left, blocked the number multiple calls. never leaves a message . i have blocked due to other comments They have called at least three times a day for the last week about solar panels. I keep telling them I don’t own a home and before I can ask for them to stop calling they hang up on me, I’m not even being rude to them!!!!!
When I have more time, in the past, I’ll string them along. You just need to run with whatever they say, without giving anymore info other than your name as they already have that. It will go a couple of ways; they get hostile at you for wasting their time (but you have just successfully stopped them from calling 20 other people), or I’ve even let them setup house visits and they will ask if I’m still at an address that I rented more than ten years ago and I’ll say yes (not fare on who lives there now, but they will be trying to call me to see where I am).
A fun one is to give them a false email. For example; ”you’re name”@5uckm1d1ck.com. Someone actually called me back after 5 min to see if I was messing with them.
no message. Why does Telstra allow this scam to go on?! Got call from this number. Tried to call back and line just dead.
Based on these comments, I have also blocked it.
Going through website registry info trying to scam people in to paying for web design services. Do not answer. Do not say the word "yes". Do not acknowledge who you are or any questions they ask. Called 4 times in the last 24 hours - picked up today - said they were from LED Upgrades I asked for contact details they said they can't give those out I need to book an appointment. Absolute scam I have been receiving calls from this same number numerous times all month now, I haven't answered any calls, then I get sent MMS texts saying tap to download, which I haven't done either. I have blocked this number. But I still get calls, which I don't hear due to blocking the number, but I do still get notifications and the MMS's go into my messages Archive, so I just delete that as well as Their annoying Calls. I hope Telstra can stop them, but as There are so many Scammers calling people it must make it hard to stop them all. Just don't answer the call, block the number and just delete the MMS texts they send & Hopefully they will get the Hint & Stop Calling!!. I hope. Dead air then hang up. Overseas scammer "Senior Citizens and Pensioners Well-being Campaign" using a spoofed (fake) national number. Diverted to the scammer answering machine, I hope they enjoyed the chat with it. Several times a day, they don't say anything just hang up Sorry but who tf has a vuvuzuela? Caller: Domain Registry Detail Farmers
