Caller: Automated message. Woman's voice said "Amazon Calling"
The message gave options Press 1 or Press 2 to talk to someone.
Didn't respond. NO reason for Amazon to be calling.
I called back the number 0488 859 609 but was routed automatically to an ivr energy australia, phone sales I did not recognise number so did not answer and they didn't leave a message, so assumed it’s not important. I checked here and found great information, thank you everybody and now I know who called me, and will now block No answer and this is the third 0488 number to call me! Over these calls! Caller: SCAMMER ALERT
JUST RECIEVED A CALL FROM 0488 859 609 AND SPOKE TO SOMEONE CALLED ALVIN WHO HAS A VERY STRONG ACCENT. HE CLAIMS HE WAS CALLING IN RELATION TO MY NBN CONNECTION AS SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY HAS BEEN DETECTED AND THAT HE NEEDS TO CONFIRM MY NAME, ADDRESS AND CREDIT CARD DETAILS. KNOWING FULL WELL THIS IS A SCAM I TOLD HIM THAT I DONT HAVE NBN HOOKED UP TO MY PROPERTY AND THAT AS A SCAMMER HE MUST HAVE A VERY LONELY EXISTANCE AND WITH THAT HE TERMINATED THE CALL.
My phone identified this number as spam and blocked it automatically. Came here to discover it's definitely spam. They called but when I answered they just hung up. They called me but hung up as soon as I answered. I tried to call back but it said the number was disconnected. Caller: Don’t know
Called back to be told the number is not connected. They have phoned 3 times will block now thank you for the info
Scam calls continue. Apparently my Prime Account (which I don't have) would be renewed for $39.99 (not the AU price). I hung up.
Called twice, but could not connect. Clear sign of rerouting and thus scams. When I did that I got "the number you have called is not connected". Scams seem to be getting pretty sophisticated these days. Two missed calls with no voicemail or message left. Attempted to return call, but was advised that the number was not connected. Caller: Claimed to be NBNOc
Called to say that NBN landline and Internet would be disconnected. Hung up on them.
Automated caller stated that they were from NBN and my IP address was under cyber threat and gave options to talk to a technician, I hung up and checked on here Caller: Amazon
Notifying me that my Amazon Prime account is going to have an auto deduction of $39.99 per month.
Which is super considering I don't have an Amazon Prime account!! :) Haha!
Phone number has now been blocked.
my phone is now recognising some of these scam calls which is good, so have started blocking however they just keep popping up with different numbers! AAhhh Called back, number not connected. calling me multiple times a day and I came to discover it is spam.
