A lady called me from this number today, asked if I remembered entering a mortgage survey to win a Prize. I said 'No'. They said I didn't win the major prize but I had won some kind of android tablet which they would send somebody will come to my home on an evening and scheduled a day and date for that !!!, Then She asked me a couple of 'survey questions'. Then they proceeded to ask me questions about my mortgage and assets and I have answered here foolishly !!!
I don't know what gonna happen, I will contact Police
Call from the same number today. They said I have filled in an online survey. Never fill them in, so they are lying. They suggested a friend had filled it in on my behalf to increase their chances. I too had won a 7"tablet. Told them it was a scam and hung up. How in the world do these people get your number (mobile). This is fourth call from 0437 number in 9 hours ... other numbers were 0437 807 298, 0437 474 181 & 0437 495 903 ... like the 3 other numbers this too was unapologetically blocked Has called twice so far today and eveytime no one on the other side. Very rude!!! Am now blocking the number after sending back an appropriate response on MMS. My number is on the do not call register so not happy I am receiving dumb time wasting calls from the invisable man. Saw all the msgs here and didn't bother answering the call. Thank to all for posting that this is a scam caller. It is a scam - this is the 2nd time they called A guy called me from this number today, asked if I remembered entering a mortgage survey to win a Prize. I said 'May be'. They said I didn't win the major prize but I had won some kind of android tablet and if that is something me and my husband could make use of.
He asked me to confirm if we were paying mortgage for our house, how much mortgage was left and what the current value of house would be. When we worked out that equity is under 150,000 he said i don't qualify and hung up.
Have rung several times to a work phone (government owned phone). When I call back it goes to voicemail. Annoying It's always the governments fault.....we had heavy rain recently we only wanted a little bit, why cant the government control the weather? Keep getting called and silence for a few seconds then hangs up. So creepy and annoying. Luckily I googled the number. Blocked! Called by them.. Didn't answer... Scam people.. Scam!!

SERIOUSLY you should know this people.
Yes, had a similar. A woman saying she's from Wealthsbuild (mortgages) & I had entered a comp. either with Coles or Bunnings and had won an android tablet. Told her I never entered a comp. She asked did I own a home. When I ask what I had to do, she said she would have to give the tablet to the runner up, if it wasn't me who entered, & she hung up. I rang the mobile number back and it rang out to a msg bank that was full. Obviously a scam of some sort. Long pause so I hung up and blocked number. Why doesn't our government police such things? Too busy scaring us into forfeiting our liberties, that's why! Lady called to say I had entered a Woolworth competition to win an iPhone 7, told her I didn't enter any comps, insisted I did & I shouldn't worry because I had won the iPhone 7 I just had to confirm my personal details... hmmm nope!
Scam people beware
Same thing - very friendly man, knew my first and middle name, said I'd entered a survey and won an android tablet. He asked to 'verify' some information about my age and that I owned a home, as I wasn't in the bracket he said and didn't own a home he was very apologetic and said he'd delete my information from the system, in retrospect an obvious scam type phone call but was hard to spot at the time! Cgyj I got a call from this number saying I entered a survey and win a prize, I have them some answers on whether I owned my property, and a couple of other generic questions. I was cagey with my answers (no specific personal details) but should not have answered at all in hind sight.
Does anyone know what they can do with these answers
They called my mobile and hung up also got similar calls from 0437 094 081 Some guy said I'd won an android... asked me questions about my mortgage, how much I owe, how much I earn, who lives there...
I lied about all of them, but at end of last question he said I don't qualify for prize because of my last answer...
Guessing just some annoying business trying to get easy targets.
Called a couple of times, only made silence, than hang up as well.
