Caller: Man saying he was from Australian Melanoma Research Foundation
A check of their website says "TELEPHONE SCAM WARNING
The Australian Melanoma Research Foundation has been made aware of a phone scam in which the caller poses as a representative of the AMRF and asks for credit card or bank details.
Please be aware that this is NOT a genuine operation. The AMRF does not cold-call for donations by phone or in person. All fundraising activities by the AMRF are with reputable and licensed organisations"
Yep got a call tonight. They are silly because I've got Telstra Call Guardian 302 Mk2 which blocks these types of calls. Only allowed calls will ever get through! I laugh every time such a scam is logged. Caller: I didn't answer.
Number rang, but, since I did not recognise, I ignored.
Subsequently saw attached comments - glad that I didn't answer
Let the call go through to voice mail as I didn't recognise it. The man said "Hello, hello, hello" then hung up.
Sounded scammy to me.
Caller: Apparently Melanoma Research foundation!!
Same as previous ones ha ve mentioned...says its that foundation and selling tickets in raffle. I declined! Perth WA
I answered and just got music and then they hung up Thanks for previous messages. Ignored the call. Scammers Called and did not leave a message Call from this number just now. As soon as he started to speak i cut off he call. Caller: Unknown
Picked up and it was just playing music. Potential scam.
Caller: O0480 015 197
Returned call , music playing.
harrassment call no idea who ??? Caller: 0480 015 197
Asking for donations for Australian Melanoma Research Foundation. Upon googling this organisation, and as also mentioned by another user on this page, AMRF have stated they do not call people for donations. This is a scam call.
Claiming to be the Australian Melanoma Research Foundation asking you to buy tickets for a raffle worth $15,000. The AMRF clearly state on their website they don't cold call asking for donations and are aware of a scam currently operating which does.
Wouldn't have a clue, comes up line busy all the time Music on voice mail I tried to ring back the number 0480 015 197 but reached a silent voice mail
