I was called from this number saying my number was selected to win a gift worth thousands $. Wyndham resorts. I guess I stayed in one of their hotels at some point? I was expecting a call and answered this one accidentally and sat through his whole pitch like a sucker. It's actually some kind of timeshare. I then blocked the number because I'm not insane. Wyndham Vacation Resorts - essentially timeshare. They try to scam you saying you put your name in a draw and you've won second prize. 3 nights for the price of 1. What they don't disclose is the limitations/restrictions on the booking, so you can kiss your money good-bye.
I then did a little research on them and came up with this from the Australian and Securities and Investment Commission website:
Phone number is a recorded message that transfers you through to a call centre and then hangs up. Looks to be from Australian Pensioners Insurance Agency. I had two missed calls from the number on one day, had the number call many times. Called it and was faced with electronic message and out on hold, whilst advised that my call is very important to them. Hold music is really bad which made it even more painful. After 6 mins on hold and being told on a irregular basis that my call was very important to them and I would be transferred to the next agent... I never was ... I got an automated "Goodbye" The number rang me up and were asking, "is this Frank?"
I said no you must have the wrong number then they tried to scam me into giving them my details.
I told them:
Me: Why don't you give me your home phone number and I'll call you back when i'm free?
Me: Please give me your home number
Response: Sorry i Can't do that.
Me: I guess it's because you don't want people calling you when you are at home.
Me: Well now you know how I feel!
Then I hung up on them.
BLOCK Hate this number, keep on calling everyday PESTS!!! Wont stop calling me! It's a scam where they try to sell you holidays. BLOCK. They just try to sell something as I didn't answer. Even 8 pm still call me. 3 times today already 21/09/16 Constantly calling trying to sell. When you say no, they just continue to call. Multiple times. Over and over. I have been called 2 a twice for the pass week... they called once i answer they said they were from Wyndham Vacations I said not interested ... but they still calling... SCAMMER After ignoring seven calls from this number I finally answered. After I said hello etc with no response. An electronic message said "goodbye" and hung up. Definitely SPAM. They've called me 8 times in the last 3 days. While I had blocked this number, it keeps popping up in my voice mail. Really annoying. Just another new scammer i guess trying to suck you in. Just do not bother answering numbers you don not know and then block. Simple! Keeps calling spam for sure! Some lady constantly tried to ring my mobile and I finally picked up to find out. Her name was Jeremy with an Indian accent and I hung up Pestilence.
