Identity theft prompting for a Yes answer Scammers. pain in my vagina Caller: Called themselves Wendy
Someone called. Claimed to be Wendy from CCI at first. Referred to me by a name. She said she got my details from "online competitions". She wanted to do a "lifestyle survey". I asked what the purpose was. Caller provided vague answers at first. I said that I think the call is fraudulent. She denied this. I said "so you want me to do a survey but you can't tell me who for, what the purpose is, where you are calling from, and you think that isn't suspicious?". She then said she was Prospect Direct who were doing surveys for Foxtel. I then reminded her that she said she was from CCI. She said that is the call center. I believe this phone call to be suspicious at worst (and annoying at best). I have no relationship with Foxtel.
Caller: Scammer posing as "Prospect Direct" (a company in Texas, USA)
The caller claimed to be from Foxtel and explained that this was a customer satisfaction survey. However, her questions were phrased in a way to prompt the answer "yes" several times and she ended the call without asking any meaningful questions whatsoever. Sadly, I did say "yes" in reply to her questions. I believe this was part of an attempt at a "replay attack". (Search it on Google.) The idea of this fraud is to collect personal details of the target and then capture a voice recording of the target saying "yes", which can be replayed to credit providers as authorisation for a transaction. I called the number back and it is only answered by a voice message claiming to be from "Prospect Direct". A Google search reveals no such company in Australia, although there is a company by this name in Texas, USA. I am now waiting to see whether unauthorised transactions appear on my credit card, or if someone tries to port my phone or raid my bank accounts.
Have called up to 5 times per day, never leaves a message. Caller: Scammers
Identity theft please be careful, I have had someone take my identity.
Nazi German's with jihad extremist views against orphan mother's in 3rd world counties with terminal diseases. . . . Dodgy international scammers! I wonder does this caller read these pages. They are annoying, a pain in the rear end, by now they should realise no one in their right mind is going to listen to them. Maybe they are trying to find someone who is not in their right mind, but had a lot of money to share.
How do we get rid of these nuisances?
Automated Voice message Prospect Direct will call you again Caller: Call centre
Received a call from this number and a lady named Kimberly introduced herself and asked if I am interested to do a survey. She sounded polite but I wasn't going to waste my time so I said Im not interested or anything that she is trying to sell. Surprisingly she said that's OK and bid me a good day.
Ask for an ABN and no more calls! I don't answer interstate calls, this went to answer machine and no message left but digital voice said thanks for calling I get random numbers always calling me... sometimes twice a day asking for Mrs Lee... I have no connection with a mrs lee and tell them not to call back. An hour later I get a call from this number asking if it's Mrs Lee again. Every time I confront them, they hang up in my face, seems like a scam. Claiming to be from Prospect Direct Adelaide. Stated they missed a call from me, I never rang the number. Asked me whether I was Debra. I said No, wrong number, and hung up. Hope there aren't any no type questions re identify theft. Blocked number. claimed to be lifestyle survey I got a call saying they were prospect direct, a consumer research group wanting me to answer a short 10 question survey. I said no thank you. Is it dangerous that I said no because they were looking for yes no questions? We now answer these calls but say nothing - just hope it costs them money to make the call !! Caller: Wendy
She calls almost daily and leaves voicemails of her just saying 'hello?' 'hello?'
She says she is calling for a (and says the first letter of my first name, and then my full surname)
