some guy asking about police neighborhood watch i said i wasn't interested in it and he hung up quickly Caller: 0478 285 747
Got called by this number twice in three days. Guy claimed his name was Andrew Clarke from the Police Association of NSW and he was calling to ask for donations to the association as they had a big campaign coming up in the area.
I told him no both times and contacted the Police Association to make sure it was a hoax. This was their reply: "The Police Association NEVER makes cold calls to members or the community asking for donations. We’ve passed on this information to a staff member to investigate further. In the interim, we advise you to block the phone number and DO NOT provide any banking details."
a younger girl just called me and asked if I was interested in purchasing advertising in a police and youth services magazine, I told her I was not, and she said why not, is it financial? to which i said, i've said no, so thats the end of it. and hung up. dodgy. i got the calls from this number and said they are neighbours watch asked me that am I a business owner and try to get a dominate for the kid campaign for $345. I asked to email me the details informations about the campaign but she doesn’t. Then they also keep calling me by this number and many different numbers as well. So frustrating! Had a couple of calls from this number today that hung up after one ring. Unable to return call as line disconnects as soon as it goes through. Rang Telstra as hand 3 different numbers do this to me today so thought it was a fault my end. I run a business so was worried I was missing calls. No just scammers!!!! SPAM & SCAN! Just called me; I didn’t answer, but decided to research the number, and see 8 scam posts above! Number has now been blocked!!! Caller: Older sounding Aussie lady
Trying to scam money for advertising in neighbourhood watch magazines.
Called talking about a big campaign they have coming up. I mentioned I was quite busy and he hung up Caller: Steven and couldn't figure out where he called from
He asked me if I was in charge of my business name and then responded yes, asked if he's caught me at a bad time and I said, no its ok and then he hung up.
I tried calling the number back and went to voicemail
They convinced me to give them $385 for an advertisement in their neighbourhood watch news letter. I verbally agreed but When I searched their number it came up with 95% scam rating. They continue to bill me yet they have never received my business logo. Scammers!! Be careful !!
Caller: Someone from Police Neighbourhood Watch
Same thing: asked me about my business and if I wanted to “get behind” a campaign next year.
When they asked me what my name was after they had called me, I lost confidence.
Some guy called Steven from "Police Neighbourhood Watch" called to ask me questions about my business. When I quizzed him further, he hung up on me. Telemarketer I called back the number 0478 285 747 and reached vm that did not mention the company name

Phone me in my mob, but said nothing for several seconds.
Was it a nuisance call?
