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. 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.
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" BLOCK Hate this number, keep on calling everyday thanks Seinfeld Annoying calls every day! PESTS!!! Wont stop calling me! It's a scam where they try to sell you holidays. BLOCK. They call constantly and leave no message. I have read the other posts. BLOCK THEM! 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 never wanted to answer, I did. They ask if it's you - you say yes" they are able to record your voice and use it to activate voice recognition. What the hell is wrong with these Indian f*ckers ,,, go and get a real job and leave us hard working Australians alone.... I answered the call only to hear a pre-recorded message saying I needed to return the call to that number to avoid police turning up at my door regarding issues with the ATO. Call Wyndham Estates direct on (07) 5512 8888 and have them remove your mobile number from their spam database. a

This 'appears' to be of those so-called computer random calling numbers.
However, as the 'caller'...
