was a recorded electronic voice, informing that an amount of money would be debit from a credit number Caller: I don't who it was that called me, But I knew it was not who they claimed to be
The call recorder app on my phone recorded the following call i received, I've written her (the scammer) words as they sounded It's not my bad spelling.
Recorded voice call that I received claiming it's the ATO (tax office) informing me that my matter was very urgent and I should tend to it immediately or the police would come and arrest me and take me to jail, then the voice says press 1 on your phone to resolve the issue, not sure what the other options were but I just pressed the 1 strait away.
Now a live operator (female scammer) comes on and says "hello how can I help you" I said I don't know you called me so if you don't know then why did you call me? She then asks "what your name please" I say do you need my name or my tax number. She says "your name please" So I said my name is Wyatt, it's Wyatt Earp. She says "what what" I said no it's not what, it's Wyatt, my name is Wyatt Earp.
She then asks "You can spell name" I said sorry i missed what you said. She says "Name, you can spell name please" I said yeah i can spell so i spelled (J, I, M, M, Y). She then says "Jimmy, you name is Jimmy" I said no my name is Wyatt. She the says "Why you just tell you name Jimmy" I said no I did not say my name was Jimmy, It's Wyatt my name is Wyatt.
She then says "You name not What, you say Jimmy why you spell to me name Jimmy" I said Because you asked if I could spell a name, I said yes I can spell so I spelled a name "Jimmy" I never said it was my name, You didn't ask me to spell my name and I've told you 5 times my name is Wyatt, It's Wyatt Earp. My name is not Jimmy or What, it's Wyatt.
She says "Oh you make joke to me you tink you funny, You what, You not What, You not Jimmy, You like i send police to your house you make joke to police" I said no please no do not send the police again, Last time you sent the police they ate all of my F***ING donuts, Now what do you think i should do? claim the donuts as a tax deduction or just send you an invoice because I did not invite the police you the tax office sent the police, Anyhow they ate $12,000 worth of donuts so I'm glad you called me today, I comp"""""" (And that was that she hung up on me mid sentence)
Caller: Some guy pretending to be from Ebay
Some guy pretending to be from Ebay about a $199 gift card I ordered with Paypal and it needs to be paid for. He asked if I wanted to confirm the order. I kept him on the phone as long as I could talking rubbish about how much I liked Free gift cards and I was very thankful he was giving me a free gift card.
Caller: Automated voice message
Voicemail message saying they were from Ebay and I had purchased something for $199. and that I need to call them about the debit on my credit card. Message was automated and so fast I barely understood it.
I just received a call from this number (03) 9005 7528. Caller left a voicemail message saying" If you want to cancel a refund. Call us on (08) 8121 8488. Thank you. I assume that this is a scam, and have blocked the number. Caller: SCAMMERS
Scam. Scam. Scam
Do not answer and block number immediately.
Caller: Recorded message
Recorded message saying my credit card will be used to purchase iTunes cards. To prevent the purchase, ring the number they provide.
They say they are from Ebay Help Desk and have spotted suspicious activity on account. Than want to connect mobile to their server for further information. This is not legit. On this number a short while ago a recorded electronic voice re money to be debited on card and I needed to speak to them if wanted to cancel that Caller: (03) 9005 7528
its the Seek Web page giving our numbers to this scam !
Claimed I needed to pay for a gift card immediately or “action” would be taken. I have made no such purchase. Terminated call. Also had this today, tried to get authorisation for $188 iTunes card. Caller: supposedly ebay
recorded message to debit amount from my account and when I called back said they were ebay and I needed to logon to teamviewer to get to the ebay server.
Total fraud but did not let up. I asked them to confirm my ebay account and they put me on hold and I hung up.

Caller: (03) 9005 7677
People pretending to be Vodafone. Asked for my 4 digit pin I said 420 69. They asked for a 4 digit pin again I told them I gave them a 4 digit pin and to count the number. They then hung up
that really is a stupid story. As others above. Debiting credit card. I just hung up. Thieving idiots too lazy to get a real job and work like the rest of us. "Wyatt/Jimmy" gave me a good laugh with his response to caller but I hang up immediately as unsure if scammers can access phone if kept on line. Block the lowlifes!!! Robocaller stating my credit card was going to be debited x amount.... I terminated the call. 2nd Robocaller today, other was the tax evasion scam, but different number.
