Caller: Melbourne Advance?
Caller named Jasmine(with British accent) from Melbourne Advance(whatever that is)
Asking questions how you are coping financially with the pandemic..
And you can be in the draw to win $1500
1st question is, are you over or under 58?
I called back number (03) 9118 2048 rang once then gets disconnected automatically. annoying . reported and blocked number & placed a curse on caller. I really hope people aren't being sucked into this, It sounds like a scam to for older people to tell them if you have money.
As it is ringing I check number on my computer. Definitely don't answer numbers I don't recognise. EVER !!
Caller: Melbourne advance
question about the global pandemic and how it is affecting finances. Asked if I'm over or under 58.. obviously targeting under .I said over and they hung up.. will block them
Caller: Melbourne Advance
Somebody reading from a script and speaking quite quickly. They claimed to be from 'Melbourne Advance' to find out how people are coping financially in the pandemic, and very quickly lanched into a question about my age. I said 'I'm sorry, I don't know who Melbourne Advance is, who is this?' And they said 'Ok, I'm sorry' and hung up.
Caller: "private number" but she says Melbourne Advance
What is wrong with our Government and Telecommunications companies (foreign owned) that they can't stop this crap. How did they get my mobile? Who sold it to them?
Caller: Melbourne advance
Every couple of weeks the robo-girl calls, so I just hang up, obviously a scam.
Caller: My phone automatically recognised this as spam/scam and did not allow call.
Looks like this has made the spam/scam register.
Reading the comments below, I'd suggest it is a scam to STEAL $10,000 allowed withdrawal from YOUR Super due to the Pandemic.
That's why they want to know if you are over 58 years old. People over 58 can already access their super.as they have reached the preservation age and do not need to use the special access granted under COVID-19.
BEWARE they COULD STEAL your ENTIRE SUPER if you give them details.
Caller hung up. Thanks for your comments.
Caller: Bot recording
Bot recording re how victorians are coping with the global pandemic. Proceeded to first question without asking if interested. When i said I do not want to participate in the survey the phone line was cut off abruptly.
