    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 !!

    Scam call
    Australia
    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.

    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: Melbourne Advance

    Same as above - a caller named Jasmine from Melbourne Advance attempting to ask questions relating to how you are coping financially with the pandemic. I've received several calls previously - this one had "No Caller ID" displayed on my mobile.
    Not sure if its a recording as I now say "not interested.go away" as soon as the monologue starts. The voice doesn't stop, so presumably its a recording.

    Caller: melbourne advanced

    now calling from a private number this is the 5th or 6th call I have received, I now believe it is a recording that prompts responses depending on what I say, I keep asking about where they are calling from and it loops back to the start then hangs up on me
    'are you over or under 58'

    Caller: Melbourne Advance, Jasmine

    It is a telephone scam. I had a telephone call on my mobile on Wednesday 18 November 2020 at 11:38am. The caller name was Jasmine and was calling from Melbourne Advance, asking if I was over or under 50 yo? My reply was: "F__K YOU, YOU SCAMMING B_TCH! " She hung up.

    I contacted Melbourne Advance, Customer Relations and they advised that "These calls are not from our Advance staff, the numbers below are not part of our company." Whether or notvthis is true I do not know.

    The telephone scammers have been using are telephone numbers (03) 9118 2048, (03) 7038 6976, (03) 7038 6920. They had called me several times, However, last couple of times they rang myself they telephoned from a Private number and still claimed they were from Melbourne Advance.

    Caller: Jasmine

    This would be the 5th time I have received a call where I interrupt Jasmin's spiel and ask her for her mobile number so I can call her back from a private number #31#. Jasmin still asks if over or under 58 and told her not to call back and hung up. I have been polite until now as understand the job of cold calling but repeats will now get aggression from myself, I hope the calling software she knows how to flag my number not to call or you might find on news" Cold caller dies of hear attack from irate mobile user"

    Caller: Jasmine, robocall from Melbourne Advance

    Now calling from a private number which is against Telco Act for such calls so definitely a scam and someone is gaining personal information.
    Report every instance.
