Caller: Ryan Supervisor
I received numerous calls from Benefit Deal in Melbourne, so I decided to speak to their manager and was put through to their supervisor called Ryan. I asked for their full legal name and he advised the name was Benefit Deal. I asked if it was a company or sole trader, and he said company. I looked them up on ASIC and their company does not show up. I advised him that his company is not registered and should not be trading. I asked him who sold my details to him and he said it "automatically comes up". I said it can't automatically come up. At this point he hung up on me. I don't think I will be hearing from them again!
I had the same from (03) 4455 4070 who claimed to be from benefit deal. I rang the number back a couple of times with blocked caller id and spoke to someone who informed me they were in fact calling from a call centre in India. They told me they were calling on behalf of "benefit deals" during one call and said the office address was 3 Bowen Crescent South Melbourne(appears to be a building containing offices so doesn't help narrow it down) when i asked. I then rang back and was told the business name was "deal checker" and they said their offices were in South Melbourne but would not elaborate further when i asked them for the postal address, they just hung up. Couldn't find either name in asic or abr. Would love to find the source of this spam. Anyone have any ideas ? Caller: Insurance sales
Unwanted calls every day, trying to sell insurance. Have blocked.
Caller: Benefits Deals
Indian accent. Sounded semi-legit. Said they worked with many energy providers and that all residents in NSW were eligible for some discount on electricity. I said I was busy and would call back later after I checked them out.
Caller: Ronald (allegedly)
I just spoke to the guy and told him how a quick google search of the "company" name only shows complaints and no company by the name benefit deals and suddenly he hangs up. What a shock. I wish there was some kind of enforcement group to shut these annoying pests down. This is the 17th time they have called me. Aaagggghhhhh!!!
Caller: Benefit Deal
Have had numerous calls from (03) 8202 5491 claiming to represent Benefit Deal - caller sounded from India - knew that I resided in Qld
Caller: Alan Supervisor
I had a similar experience. I was told the head office address was 10.01 Bowen Crs South Melbourne 3004, and that the owner was Ronald Baker.
Caller: Benefit Deals
I got as many details as I could from Alan, although they are probably bogus.
Benefit Deals were calling from an India-based call centre, but purport to have a head office working out of 10.01 Bowen Crs, South Melbourne 3004.
They get a referral fee for helping to transfer Australian residents to new energy providers. They would not provide an ABN.
The owner's name was said to be Ronald Baker.
Caller: Benifit Deals
The last phone call they rang on (03) 8820 8540...i keep blocking them but they continue to call using a different number.
Numerous calls from this number or similar. When you ask them to remove the number from their call lists they hang up or pretend they can't hear you. Definitely overseas call centre.
Caller: (03) 8202 5318
Indian call centre ringing about electricity and gas - looks like a Australia number but it's not - very dodgy - stay away
Caller: Benefit Deal
Got a call from Benefit Deal today in the evening. They got my address and last name right. But they don't have the first name. I was surprised. The call was ended when I decline to disclose further information.
Caller: Benefit deal
Jack from Benefit Deal called me about electricity , told him I had a toothache today and couldn’t talk , then blocked number
Caller: Not sure
I hung up soon as the person with a foreign accent asked me for my name. A message for Australian companies who use foreign call centers. I DO NOT TALk TO THEM.
Call about electricity and gas looks like a Australia number but it's not. Electricity deals.
Calling 3 times today.
Third number block for today. Why do I keep getting marketing calls. I have blocked over 200 numbers already.
