I called back number (02) 4204 8230 rang once then gets disconnected automatically. I didn't answer the call and they didn't leave a message, as is typical with all spam callers. It is important that people understand the only way these calls can be prevented is by not answering calls from numbers you don't know. I know some people rely on older technology which can't screen calls, but for those with mobile phones and the ability to store numbers of people and companies you know, there is no excuse to answer calls from people/numbers you don't know. If it is important they will leave a message.
I stress again, the business model of scammers and time wasters completely relies on people answering calls every time. Don't do it and gradually the scammers will be out of business.
Caller: My Energy Deals
Received a call a week ago from this number, initially missed and they left a voicemail - was a lady just saying "hello" before hanging up. Tried calling back but it didn't connect through. Received another call just then from the same number, sounded like the same lady. Said she was from My Energy Deals. Had my full name and the postcode to an address I lived in 5+ years ago.
6 missed calls in 2 months, I'm blocking the number They have been relentlessly calling my phone for the past 2 weeks. Every day no fail and numerous times. Offering cheap electricity rates This is spam call. He call to Renee which the name I don't know who it is. Indian guys. annoying.... Spam. Don't answer. This number has called my office 4 times in 3 and a half hours, and every time I pick up, the call is disconnected a few seconds after I answer.
Today is not the first time this number has spammed our phone line in this way and I have never had any response from the other end of the line, just a very prompt disconnection.
I have been getting about one call per day from this number during the past week. There is nobody at the other end when I pick up the call. I have stopped responding. Caller: Don't know
It is important to answer calls from numbers you don't know, because you never know when it is an important call from someone you know calling from a number you don't recognise, or a person you don't know calling for a valid reason.

scamming energy bills
Called saying "I believe this is Angela's phone", and tried to stretch conversation as I hang up. Caller: (02) 4204 8230
I have received a series of nuisance calls from this number. Twice per day in recent days The notification on my mobile indicates that the call is from "Wollongong". However, there is no way of knowing if this is really the source of the call. There is no response at all at the other end when I pick the call up. I will try to block the call.
Just had a call from this number. as soon as i picked up they disconnected. blocked now. Scam call. Just ignore and block... Picked up and no answer. No message left.
A few hours later got a call from a similar number (02) 4204 8261.
I didn't answer that one, but am sure it is from the same source.
Called but didn't leave a voice message, blocked Caller: My Energy Deals
