Caller: Robo call
I just called Busienss Victoria after receiving a call from (03) 9068 3488
They have confirmed that this is actually them calling business to ensure busienss have a COVID Safe Plan in place, now that restrictions are easing and business are opening up.
Hope that helps.
Small business Vic regarding restrictions easing. computerized message and then asked if I could hear him. I know in the past they tell you not to say ' yes ' to these recorded messages. I am assuming its a scam and am sure a real person would call from small business vic.
I love my smart phone
I didn't answer, it left a voice message.
"... something about stopping the spread of coronavirus.. before we start can your hear me alright?"
IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY ANSWER THIS CALL DO NOT RESPOND WITH "YES"
Caller: Bailey - robo call
Supposedly from Business Victoria and calling in relation to Covid-19 in waste water in Benalla and Portland and our Covid plan. So initially sounded genuine as I live in one of those locations. Hung up after first ‘yes’ (and yes, I wasn’t paying attention - stupid!). I have had no response from Business Victoria. Have now blocked the number.
I've been getting the same calls, both times I ignored then got sent automated messages. I DO NOT OWN A BUSINESS AND I do not live in Victoria anymore. Massive scam, and yes there has bedn circling on social mefia svammers who ask certain wuestions so you answer what they need. They take your voice recording and use it. DO NOT ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS. Block and report. Caller: Robot named Bailey
Has called me twice today. Claims it’s from the government & asks “can you hear me”. Not trusting this one
Recorded call from this number stating they are state government checking for covid safety plan. sounds like a scam They say its from the covid line not recognised by the hotline as their number Caller: Claimed to be Business Victoria
I don’t have business so it looked like a scam. Rang twice before I blocked.
Caller: Supposedly Business Victoria
Scam, get a recorded message about Covid safe workplace for business owners, I don't even run/own a business. Hang up don't answer yes.
Got the call today. Said YES to the first two questions before realising sh*t was probably a scam. So i ended it straight away and blocked the number. Hopefully nothing else happens. same as previous reviews, this was a robo call from 'bailey"
Small Business Victoria regarding restrictions easing. Automated message was going on, then went dead, could not hear anything. then it disconnected.
I'm not convinced it is legit...
I called Business Victoria and they said that this is NOT a number connected with them. Do not answer!!! Claims to be from government re covid compliance however asks questions that seem too easy to be used as identity theft. Best to ignore it and follow the DHHS web site instead just in case. Caller: Busniness Victoria
Sounds like a scam
Happy to know it is legit, but find it odd to be getting this call at all as I don't have a business. Caller: Who knows!
Same situation as all the other comments, but if the government was really behind this, they wouldn’t have an automated message. If it smells like chicken, tastes like chicken then....
Caller: Claims they are Business Victoria
Got to work this morning to find automated message on our answering machine checking up on our Covid safe plan. If they are so concerned about my business why are they calling at 6pm at night.
Annoying and blocked.if it is legit.... put it on a website or social media. dont call!!! Caller: Scammer
I think anyone that thinks this is a real call is retarded, especially people that just read the first message of this forum and assume that that person who posted that isn't also a scammer.
