Another disconnected number when you call back. Caller: Australian Bureau of Statistics - Cost of Living Survey
Accented caller wanted to do a 4 question survey - I politely declined (as always), they hung up (as always)
I called back number (03) 9112 5846 reached voice mail but did not say for what company. Caller: ?Scam potential Identity Theft going by info from others 5 missed calls in a day 6th Nov & 1 on 27 Oct 2020
This phone number (03) 9112 5846 is concerning as they kept calling my number because I have missed the all but 1 call but didn't answer . They never left a message. I've read here from others experience & to me it appears these people are maybe trying to build profiles on individuals re identity theft or phishing . Yet It's also concerning about a person here reporting about being asked if they were single etc & describe another describing questions they began to answer became " too invasive " and they had to hang upon the caller. Several reporting a foreign sounding male & the individual often swears at them & becomes abusive when the public press for more information. The same number also has one or 2 just what you would describe as nuisance call. Then it was reported by someone here as disconnected on same day they call myself & others 27 Oct 2020. 26 complaints so far since October 2020 plus at least 20 others who have clicked the helpful part on the comments hints that people need to be wary as they know names etc too & obviously a persons local council area
Called me asked if it was me using my name i said yes then they said f*ck YOU and they hung up No message left, and after reading comments here, added to my block list.
Interestingly, lots of numbers in my block list beginning with 03 9112, so they probably cycle through multiple instances
Same as other comments (female Philippino; wants to confirm my name; quick 4 question survey on increased cost of living in Victoria; said she was from something City Council after I asked a couple of times). My response was no, no, no and finished off with I don't have time, not interested and please don't call me again. Got another call today, same person and same scenario. Told her I remember her from last week and not interested and not call me again. Number is now blocked. Let's see how long it lasts before they call from another number.
Anyhoo, to anyone unfamiliar with these scam calls, remember, don't automatically respond with 'yes' when someone unfamiliar asks you to confirm your name over the phone

Foreign sounding male asked if he was speaking with (my name). I asked why?

Caller: (03) 9112 5846 Melbourne, Victoria
I answered the call with “Hello Cath speaking” and I was expecting a medical related call for my son. The foreign sounding male said “Is this Cath?” I said “Yes, who’s this?” and the called said “Hello, F*ck You” and hung up.

Called claiming to be ABS - when asked to verify their identity, the caller became agitated and hung up. Recommend ‘block’
Indian scammers. Beware!!!. Using numbers that you can't return call registered to a defunct company NZ 3 Pty Ltd. Do not answer, then block this caller. Advise ACMA of the scam. Highly likely an identity theft scam. Caller: (03) 9112 5846
Said they were from the Bureau of Statistic. Said they only had 4 questions, when I tried to call the number back it would not go through. Be warned
