I received a text message requesting I call 1300 003 894 immediately to discuss an important matter and Quote 29068559 from Dun and Bradstreet.
I looked at this site and realised it was a scam and have blocked this number on my phone. Thank you everyone
Computer generated message left on my answering machine, asking a person who is unknown to these premises to call back quoting a reference number before 8pm.
I appreciate being able to look up stuff like this on this website and see that it is a scam. Starting to wonder what the point is of having a phone when half the calls I get are people trying to extract money from me
Suspicious text! The usual, call immediately quoting 29416455.
Thanks for this site. I may have responded otherwise
Won’t leave me alone, defiente scar kinda want to f*ck around with them

New year, same scam. Blocked and reported. Caller: “Miltngraham”
Multiple numbers @ mine was “1300 664 725”
Asked me to talk to owner of business , director or accounts payable. I requested him to give me his number to call back he gave me 1300 003 894 , when i asked who is he calling to he named different company name not ours and i told him you are dialing wrong number. Sounded suspicious that's why searched this number Caller: "Sakyb"
Called the business I work for over "an unsettled payment"
Had zero idea who to ask for or what the business was.
Caller: Milton Graham
1300 003 894 - I was very suspicious about this one given the comments on this page etc. I called Milton Graham's direct line (from their website) and they were able to confirm that the number is legitimate (as is the reference number provided). If you get a text asking you to call a 1300 number, and it gives you a company name, just call the company from a phone number you KNOW is legit, and ask them to confirm - easy peasy.
Like most of the people on here, it was a text message from mobile number 0409 045 045, not even using my name, requested I call 1300 003 894 quote a number, need to discuss an urgent matter, glad we check these numbers on a site like this. Rubbish its a scam Got a phone call from 1300 003 894. Call lasted 23 minutes - read on. Person asked me to confirm I was a name they had - it wasn't me. Took 5 minutes to get their first name out of them ("Deepa" she said) and their rough address (St. Kilda Rd). Person said she didn't know the full address even though she was there in the building on "St Kilda Rd". I asked to speak to a supervisor - she told me one wasn't available and that I'd have to go to a website. Told her I'd hold and forced her to put me on to someone else I'd call the AFP. Spoke to supposed supervisor - same problem getting name but then he told me his name ("Abeer" he said). Gave me a lot of run around - i.e. he told me he couldn't tell me what they do there except work for banks, telco's, and utilities. Asked him why the banks, telco's, utilities, etc didn't phone their clients directly (as they all and always do) and he told me he didn't know. Asked him if he could tell me about the supposed business he works for because I may want to become one of their clients - he told me he didn't know. Asked him to transfer me to someone who does and he said he didn't have any phone numbers or know anyone who could help me - told me to go to a website again. Really pressured him to tell me only ONE thing his supposed employer did - he said "data analytics". Looked at the website he gave me and "data analytics" was NOT a service provided by his supposed employer. Told him he lied to me and said he was a scammer. Asked him waht data analytics system they used - he didn't know. He gave me his "employee ID number" ("CT7" he said) and a post box address ("PO Box 7405, St Kilda Rd, 3004" he said verbatim). Told him no employee ID's are 3 digits long (honestly, they aren't when in a call centre), and that the PO Box address could be set up for this scam, and that his employees (and himself) didn't even know the address at which they have to come to work even though they are there speaking to me right now (i.e. at the time). Guy ended up flabbergasted and tried to get off the phone. Kept him on for a few minutes more and told him that I'd recorded the whole phone call, will transfer it to mp3, and upload to Youtube - which I've done. Told him not to call my phone number again or Qld Police, AFP, Telecoms Ombudsman would be involved (for sure), and that I was amazed at how far their scamming set-up went (i.e. website, supposed "employee ID number", supposed PO Box address, etc). He eventually backed down and said he'd remove my phone number from their "database" (God knows how if he doesn't know much else) and never call it again. Told him I'm sick of scam callers (he NEVER once denied it being a scam or defended it), wished him good luck with the scam and told him to expect a lot more responses from people like mine. All info I got from him is detailed in here, so ask the same questions if you get a call from this number (or similar). Ultimately, I don't know if it's a scam or not, but they phoned the wrong person when they spoke to me. NOTE: RECORD THESE CALLS IF YOU CAN AND LOAD THEM TO YOUTUBE. GET AS MUCH INFO OUT OF THEM AS POSSIBLE. IT REALLY CAN HELP THE POLICE AND AUSTRALIAN AUTHORITIES. Caller: MiltnGraham
Caller: Text Message from MiltnGraham
1300 983 433 Same Scam MiltnGraham
calls me every single day, i previouslly blocked the number and now it comes up as an unknown number. called back and told them to stop calling this number. lets see if they actually stop. Caller: Milton Graham
I received same message today - also addressing someone else. Dun and Bradstreet now call themselves Milton Graham (MiltnGraham).
Caller: Couldn't make out the male caller's name or current company name
Said company was formerly Dun and Bradstreet in Melbourne calling for given name only, no family name used. Said to call 1300 003 894 and cite reference no 29714515 regarding "important matter". Checked web for the phone number and the company, both suggesting this call, on 16.11.18, is a scam.
