Caller: Unknown fake Queensland home equity company
Called asking for the wrong name and said I had won some fake home owners competition I had never entered then promptly proceeded to try and elicit financial details. Total scam, don't answer.
Caller: Belouis Group
Scam. They got my details from ‘Woolworths, Coles or Bunnings’ competition I apparently entered. Said I had won a google home mini and wanted arrange a time for someone to drop it off to my house and drop off a financial planning pack which they would need to stay and talk about for 30 minutes. Asked questions about financial status and how much equity we have on our home loan and said that they were asking to make sure we ‘still qualified for the prize’. Very shady.
I called back number 0488 828 442 it says the number I have dialed it not in service anymore. Received a phone call from a woman saying that I had won a google home mini or laptop from a survey I completed, asked what survey it was and they said that it could have been a coles / shopping / bunnings survey (I have only done the coles surveys).
She then asked if I was a home owner (which I was until Sept 2019), which I am not at the moment, she said OK will take you off the list and hung up. Very suspicious.
Same story as everybody else. I said I’d never heard of Belouis and asked her to spell it for me. Then I asked where I would have entered this “competition” which didn’t sound very like me at all. She said it could have been lots of ways but that they had an up address for where I entered. I then asked if I’d be able to find info about the co petition online and she said “we have a website, but you won’t find anything about the competition because it was last year” then went on to tell me they were an established business who have been around for 28 years. I said I’d like to do my research before I give you any more information, because I’ve never heard of you before and she said she’d call back tomorrow. Too late, blocked already. Too bad for the actual “Belouis” group if they are legit and these people are using their name. Belouis. That I had won a free laptop/Google home mini. Lady was extremely polite and had NZ accent. As mentioned above, asked some 'qualifying' questions. Apparently they select only 100 people for this (yay...lucky me!). When queried about privacy of the information - said we only keep information on hard copy and once the financial consultation is done, we destroy the records. Hung up and blocked the number. Caller: Claimed to be from Belouis Investment Group - go by name Nicole Highland
Told me that I have won a laptop from a competition i entered in 2015 and will drop it at my place and also would like to book a time for a financial consultation. It doesnt feel right, especially only can talk on the phone and could not send any email for details, and will be asking for many details. I believe that it is a scammer.
Caller: Bell Lewis
Called & advised I had qualified for a laptop if I was prepared to sit through a financial advisor session. Asked mortgage equity, age bracket - no real red flag questions. Just felt like it was suspicious & seeing this page I know why 😕
Caller: Below Us
As with the above, asked a bunch of details, stated I’d won a laptop through a competition, hung up after I stated I’m not a homeowner.
Assuming it’s a scam.
Caller: Bell Louis...?
Called us after 7:00pm ...young woman with very polite manner claiming we were eligible for 1000 dollar shopping gift cards following a survey we completed. Hung up accidentally but glad we did. Blocked number and deleted.
Have no idea who called i just waited for someone to say something but they just hung up, so annoying hangs up Called back and it was for a survey for a home owner service. Scam. Blocked. Caller: Bell Lewis Survey
Told me i entered a competion/completed a survey, had all my details and started asking me questions, when they asked me my exact age i got suss, and said you have the age bracket. They also asked for the value owing on my home loan. Beware, apparently if i let them come and give me financial advice they would give me a laptop.
Caller: Bell Lewis
Telling me i'd entered a competition and had won a laptop, they had all my details. including home address.
They call twice a day, I don't answer and than a private number calls. Caller: Belowers ???
Dodgy. Said I have won a laptop by entering a survey through "Coles, Woolies, Bunnings or Facebook" 5 months ago........ "Just need to clarify I am a homeowner with $150,000 equity to claim it"
Caller: 0488 828 442
Called to say I participated in a "kitchen" survey. And that I was eligible for a free laptop. Yeah, no thank you.
I missed a call from this number, no message was left. I called back and a it just says the number was not in service. Probably a scammer. I will block them. Called at 4:00pm. I didn’t answer. No voicemail. Suspect a spammer
