    I just received a call from 0478 225 225 claiming to be from the Police Welfare Association, which he claimed is a registered charity. It is NOT a Registered Charity on the ACNC Register and I could find no evidence that such an organisation even exists at all.
    This despicable guy started asking if I had children, how old they were, whether I talked to them about drug education and used the sad fact that some people do use Ice to try to get me to get me to give money to his unscrupulous scam.

    I have had calls from this number and 0432 131 133... both claiming to be with the federal police association... these calls come from the company called "countrywide austral" and they are the leaders in this scam. I was stupid enough to hand over $440 for a advertisement in streetsmart magazine and they told me every child in highschool would recieve a copy and when my girl never got one i called and was then told no it is just taught to them in class.... so why the fk would i pay $440 to advertise in a book that only a teacher from each school will see!!! They use a heap of different numbers and also claim they are calling on behalf of active Ambulance, Auspol, the police streetsmart magaine!!! Their number is (03) 9937 0200 - also called austral publications.

    I received the same call. Caller said he was calling from the Neighbourhood Watch. When I asked which one, he said it's national. He asked me to confirm if I am the owner of my residence. He even knew my full name

    I just received a call from the same number saying the same! They thought I was a business and they asked me to sponsor their program which was coming up in August! Said I was not a business and how did they get my number? They hung up quickly after that!!! I do donate sometimes to the blue light discos but this was definitely not them!!!
    As a precaution now I never give my details to any phone up charities or other because there are just to many scammers out there now!!

    I received a call apparently from the Police association asking for donations, he sounded suss from the start of the call being a mobile number. When I said no he said righto that's nice and hung up! So as I suspected this was a scam and I've repirted is to the ACCC which I reccomend everyone does to stop these bludgers!
    When you call the number back it says it doesn't accept incoming calls.

    This is a scam. They claim to be from Victoria Police and want money to fund drug education in schools. Not the first time I have had a phone call from these scammers.
