Caller: St George
Amazingly, this number is genuine. Like others on here, I was getting calls from a No Caller ID, which had all the hallmarks of a scam, i.e. a slight delay before the heavily accented caller starts to speak, immediately launching into a series of questions about my identity, my bank details, DOB. After the umpteenth call I asked for a number to call back on and was given 1300 303 110. I then called St George's standard contact number 13 33 30, and they confirmed that this is the number of their credit card collections.
In my view it shows shockingly poor judgement on the part of St George to employ a service like this, with cold calls coming from India or the Phillippines from an unlisted number, especially given the climate of scam calls, texts, emails etc. Additionally not once did the caller leave a voicemail, which only added to the dubious feel to it all.
Big thumbs down to St George on this one.
SCAM Do not give out any of your details over the phone Caller: St George Collections
Legitimate number, but it's a third party collection centre who are destroying St George's reputation. 3 to 7 calls per day – "Kay" was reluctant to tell me her name, then when I refused to give personal details to an unsolicited caller with a private number she told me to call them. She then refused to give out a phone number and hung up. Been on the phone to General Enquiries twice now, and on hold to Collections for 1.5 hours...
I've got females called me several time on my mobile, and knowing my name, claimed from St George Bank. I asked one of female's detail, she (Indian voice) said Gayatri, Employee ID: C34492, called from 1300 303 110... Tell the Police for tracking the call if you can, this would protect you as well as protect next people they call! Caller: Bank of Melbourne
Private number called saying in relation to "Bank of Melbourne private banking matter". When I wouldn't give ID details, they told me to call this number 1300 303 110). I called Bank of Melb on normal number (13 22 66) - on hold for more than 10mins, then transferred to the Collections area (after ID check). Then another few minutes of voice messages before having to give an even ,more thorough ID check to the next person! Then after being on hold again, confirmed that they couldn't find any reason for them to call (no debt collections issues identified).
Terrible process on Bank of Melbourne's behalf and 20 minutes wasted for nothing!
Sounds like you are part of the scam Caller: Woman named LJ
And even when I asked for their name etc, they hung up on me! SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM
Caller: woman named LJ apparently
just called straight from a private number and went straight to asking for my personal details claiming they were a private branch. Every time I asked for her name, I was ignored. 3 days later I ignored the calls and the called my work up asking for me! Like wth. Called me early the next day and gave me this number after asking numerous amount of times.
Caller: claiming they are from st george bank
they called from a private number. i refused to give any information over the phone. they gave me this number to call back. i suspect it is a dodgy number.
legit number connected with St George bank I had the same call, then was given the 1300 303 110 number to call. I rang ST George direct and they verified the number. It is actually legit. Yeah, right. It's definitely legit, from St George collections debt (which is outsourced apparently). They knew balances etc of my account without me telling them and as someone else said were able to 'fill in the blanks'. This is a legit Inbound Line for St George accounts that are slightly overdrawn or payment has been missed. I recd a call from a Manila contact centre advising that a Direct Debit I had forgot to cancel had drawn on an Credit Card I had paid in full but was no longer using. They ID me by my full name and DOB, were really friendly and helpful. St G tell you they will not ask for this personal info unless you contact them, in fact THEY say to never give it out. Very dodgy way to operate.
I have a mailbox. I have an email address.
Why is someone from overseas being paid to contact me when a 50c stamp would get a cooperative response. No wonder bank fees are going through the roof.
Person called and asked for me to call back this number I believe it is legit. Calls from this number could be on behalf of St George or BankSA (owned by St G). The nice Indian person you talk to has only been given limited information about your ID. Enough to confirm they're talking to the right person, but not enough to compromise you. When they called me, they knew exact balance of a slightly overdrawn account, as of this morning. So I believe it's legit. recieved cold call on saturday afternoon asked if it was me when i asked to clarify how many accounts with st george i had to clarify that they had my information i was told for privacy reasons they could not i inpolitly told them not to call again he stated he was from collections and needed to clarify who i was before he could continue the only reason they need to collect any money is i have not used that bank in over a year and there fees have overdrawn the account hope this helps others Called number on St George website. Turns out it was St George Debt Collection - missed a payment on credit card I actually checked with St George on their normal 13 33 30 number and they confirmed it was their collections department so it does seem to be a legit call although I have no accounts with St George so they must have my number by mistake
