    Caller: Neighbourhood magazine

    As above, tried to scam payment out of me for advertising. Got cranky when I said I didn’t remember talking to her. Hung up when I asked for a recording of the original phone call.

    Caller: Pristine Publishing Pty Ltd and their sh*t friends.

    A legitimate business (as in registered with ASIC ABN:32 165 411 629) with unethical sales techniques and service that would likely be deemed illegal. They have several business names relating to trendy outcomes such as OH&S and they sell you advertising space in these "magazines".
    When I dug deeper to look at the business connections I found their "partners" (different business name same entity) also appear legitimate but their website has none of the data that should be used to determine if their marketing service is worth while. The magazine's have little notoriety and don't appear to be published in any significant way.
    I believe they got my details from an ad. placed in the NSW Street Smart Handbook which by contrast is a legitimate business, nice people and a real publication.

    Caller: Julia (i think it was)

    This lady has called several times asking to speak to my business partner. When I say he's not in the office and ask what it is about, she says its too complicated and longwinded for her to go over it all again. This morning when she called I advised her the likelihood of catching my partner in the office is so minimal she may as well speak to me. She said 'oh, this is above your paygrade hunny, someone in charge has authorised something and she needs to speak to her. I then advised her I was the CFO and Managing Director of my company and assured her nothing was approved without going by me. She said 'you seem a little put out'....ummmm….yeah!!
    She still, however, would not tell me where she was calling from or what it was all about. She said she would send an email to my partner but that she is happy for me to read it....gee thanks!

    It all seemed so dodgy, so glad I looked here! Thanks guys!

    Total scam, I am really looking forward to speaking with her again tomorrow!

    Here are two Scammers as above saying I had pledged to pay for a spot in a magazine, to support Crime Prevention, Child protection etc. They say they called in early July, I was overseas for six weeks starting in late June. So I know without a doubt that it never happened. Watch out I have had about eight calls so far, all from Australian voices sounding so trusting. If they were indian telemarketer types it would look more obvious, but they sound so convincing.

    Total scammer. As above comments, says magazine is ready for distribution with our advert in it. When questioned hung up straight away. When I called back I asked who I was talking to and she hung up.
    Sick of these people trying to say I have agreed to advertising in magazines when I haven't.

    Caller: Carolyn

    Caller advised she was calling from a government department and requested to confirm the company address details for a info pack to be sent-we get this a lot from scammers or telemarketers so I asked her to leave a message and we'd return her call to confirm details. She scoffed and said "we're the government, we don't leave messages" and hung up.

    I've had these guys chasing money saying I agreed to as in magazines for the past 12 months. Not alone by the looks.

    This woman is unreal, "Its Julia I've tried to ring you a few times on all the numbers so I'll just email you as requested". Never heard of her and as per other comments she's trying to suck you in to dodgy magazine advertising. How can this be reported?

    Woman from Neighbourhood (?) Magazine - asked to talk to me by name, said my magazine about to be distributed; said I wasn't aware of this; told me they spoke to me and I would have authorized it - which I had not. Asked if there was a cost to this and was told rudely "of course". When I asked what the cost was she hung up on me; never called me back.
