Definitely Centrelink. Go onto their website and check the number or call any of their other numbers and see if they're trying to reach you.... because they are.

I know that there is a lot of scam going on. BUT 1800 076 072 is 100% debt recovery within Centrelink. How do I know? Because I work for Centrelink.

When a staff member from Debt Recovery want to speak with you regarding a debt or over recovered debt, they send you a text message first (if you are subscribed) and the text is informing you that a service officer will call you from a private number.

They cannot tell you anything about the your Centrelink record if they cannot verify you. You HAVE to give them your full name, date of birth and address.

1800 076 072 is the phone number for Centrelink Debt Recovery. however when Centrelink make outbound call to you, it shows up as a private phone number on your phone.

If you receive a call and the phone number 1800 076 072 shows on your phone, then it's a scam (The scammers use a system to make this number appear to seem legit).

But if you call that number, then you will be calling through to Centrelink.

This is definitely a sophisticated scam. I first received a text saying not to reply just to answer the next call as its from centrelink. I answered and a guy asked me to verify my details. I told him I'll have to call centreline myself as he wouldn't tell me why they called. He was very persuading and even gave me this number to call back to verify. I said thanks and hung up. I didn't call the 1800 number I called the 132850 and they confirmed with me that this is indeed a scam call. Be aware as they knew my name and wanted the rest of my details.

I used to work for Centrelink and the CES. The call was "Private Number" which is exactly what Centrelink/Services Australia use. I had called Centrelink yesterday but never answer Private Numbers first off anyway because of scams.
Very unprofessional sounding voice and garbled message so I checked the number here. Just based on the voice alone I would say it's a scam.

If this number calls you don’t answer, Centrelink calls you from a private number, if you call this number back - you actually owe money

Thank you very much for the information above. I received a call and he asked me my address and DOB. I was wary to give it out on the phone and asked if I could call him back. I googled the number he gave me and found this page. I was not aware of this scam before. So thanks a million!

Its a legitimate centrelink number for debt recovery. Might be worth the call back instead of hearing from a debt collector down the track.

They literally can't do anything right, they left a message saying they are from 'services Australia' anyone from cenno are inhumane criminals and the only thing they do well is when they want money from you even if they don't have the debt correct they don't do anything by the book or even listen to you
