Caller: Not sure
Indian person calling themselves LIFESTYLES VICTORIA
when I asked what they wanted she got angry with me and hang up.
Tried calling the number back and it says this number is not connected.
This number continues to call most days and simply hangs up. If you call the number back it says not in service anymore Caller: Telemarketer, possible scammer
A lady with an Indian accent called me and said she was from a company called Lifestyle Industries. She addressed me by "Vanessa" and when I questioned it, because Vanessa isn't my name, she acted like she never said it and started rambling on about a series of questions she needed to ask me. She forcefully said "Once you've answered them, I'll be out of your way" like I didn't have a choice. Naturally, I hung up and blocked the number. She's obviously used a carrier number because if you try and call it back, you get a recording saying that the number is disconnected
Caller: “Lifestyle Victoria”
I answered the phone and there was the usual 2-3 second delay indicating a related phone call from overseas. I was immediately suspicious but I know that if you answer and don’t fit their demographic then they won’t call back.
Phillipines sounding woman said, Is that Leia? Not my name but a fake one I use sometimes. I said, Who is this? She said, My name is Angel. Can I ask you a few questions for a quick 2 minute survey?
I said okay (I used to work in a legitimate call centre who did surveys so I give them the benefit of the doubt).
First question was: Are you aged between 25-55? I said No.
Then she said, Are you over 55? You sound younger. What is your age?
I said: I am over 55.
She said, Are you 56? I said No.
She said, Are you 57?
I said: I am not telling you my age.
Then she babbled the next question. Do you think that escalating prices in Victoria have negatively impacted your lifestyle?
I replied: Obviously Yes. Where are you from again?
She hung up and I have blocked the number. These people ring up asking random questions so they can complete a profile picture. I probably should have grilled her up front as I have done in the past, but I didn’t give her any significant information. They usually ask if I own my own home and I refuse to answer nor do I give away any information about my income, occupation or work status.
These people are pests but so are many people you encounter in everyday life - my next-door neighbour for example! 😁
Caller: Lifestyle Victoria
They just wanted to do a quick survey about the changing life in Australia.
Asked for me specifically
Whether single married or defacto
Whether own home or mortgage
Combined salary income
Scammers and stalkers.. Any number beginning with 03911 are them Caller: Lifestyles Victoria
An Indian sounding voice. I asked the lady if she wanted to buy some clothes pegs - personally monogrammed! She hung up!
I just missed a call from this phone number, but I am concerned about the survey questions that you mentioned. Some people could collate that information to sell onto others, also take care in speaking the word "yes" as it can be recorded and then used for a loan application or something that takes/keeps records of voice caller ID's. Your recorded answer could be used by someone else to gain funds fraudulently using your details, and your own voice. The other questions could be used to evaluate whether or not you would be a "mark" worth attempting a con or not. Please take care. Indian lady from Lifestyles victoria - was quite forceful when I said I was working - I hung up on her. Blocked the number Caller: Life style Victoria
Scam be aware
Caller: A Philippino Male
When I told him that I had told the previous lady who called me that I don’t want anymore calls from Lifestyle Victoria. He became abusive and called me a bitch, a whore. slut and a whole lot of unsavoury names.I got so angry and told him that I’m going to the police to give him on for harassment and give them the ph number. I am going to do this

Caller: Lifestyles Victoria = SCAM
I polite indian male voice. launched into asking me 4 questions. He had my name and 'maiden' surname - but I didn't confirm either. I asked what type of company Lifestyle Victoria was, he proceeded to ask me his 4 questions (that he suggested would only take 10 seconds), I asked about the company again, and he hung up.

A lady asked if my name was... I confirmed as it was. Then she just hung up. Caller: (03) 9112 5788
I’ve been getting calls from this number for a few weeks now. I always ignore and they don’t leave a message. When I go to return the call, it says the number cannot be connected. Today I ignored that call but they left a super creepy voice message. It was an Indian-sounding man singing ‘I can’t help falling in love with you’. Gave me chills down my spine. Creep
