Received call from 0478 287 453 today wanting to confirm my business name and am I the owner. I said who are you and what do you want. They said they were calling on behalf of Victoria Police PCYC (Police Citizens Youth Clubs). I would not confirm my name or ownership of the business and told them it was my husband's number. I asked them where they got the business details and phone number from and they said from Victoria Police. I said that we have this number registered in the National No Cold Canvassing Data Base and not to call again. I put my phone on hide ID and rang the number back and there was a message from a female voice saying she's "on the phone a lot, leave your number and I'll call you back".
Caller: Mitchell Connor
Mitchell Connor called to ask if we would donate to Street-smart claiming he was calling on behalf of the police. Its a legit book for helping youths on the street make better decisions. It is not a scam, but he will use strong sales tactics and very skilful wording to make you commit to donating. It is a cold call, and our sales number is clearly advertised so it would have been easy to find.
I called back the number 0478 287 453 and reached vm that did not mention the company name
