Caller: Indian scammer
Same as others have reported - claimed to be from an Accidents department?? Wanted to know if I’d had any accidents in the last 3 years. I said yes and put him on to talk to my accident - my two year old hahaha. Buh-bye!
(Super annoyed that these scammers have now infiltrated my unlisted private home number grrr. Have managed to avoid them all til now. Would love to know the jerk who sold my details...)
It appears it was a scammer as per the other comments. If I don't recognise the number I don't answer the phone. How they got my unlisted home phone number I don't know, but I would love to know. They wouldn't have gotten anything from me anyway, I haven't been in an accident and I never give out personal details to anyone on the phone unless I call them. No message left but from other comments this is a scam that I used to receive all the time. I once played along with her and admitted that I had been in accident but she never said what she wanted me to do. Badly run scam. Block her. got the (02) 4867 1395 call, silent, then hung up, then i had a call yesterday from this number 0441273883675 (notice way too many numbers for australia, australia is 10 numbers for both mobile and landline) same deal was silent then hung up, about 1 hour later i got a private number call, they said " hello this is john (sounded like a very indian john) and i am calling from the do not call register?) all i said was "really" and they hung up lol apparently the first call from the 0441273883675 call to see does anyone answer, then they pass it on to the next lot, which in this case was indian John lol not sure why they waste their time. Caller: (02) 4867 1395
Calls several times and hangs up after 4-5 seconds expecting you to call back.
Caller: accented scammer
Asked if I'd had an accident. Problem is I did have one a few weeks back so I got caught out, then hung up on him when I realised it was a scam
We wish them an accident scam , oxygen thieves, lowlifes, should be jailed Caller: (02) 4867 1395
Ha, ha - really bad scam artists from india/ Pakistan claiming to be from the "personal injury side" representing various insurance companies, had to ask him to read slower so i could understand him, and then had to correct his pronunciation.
Said they were ringing about my recent car accident I told them I haven’t had one and you are scammers they hung up. Agreed. They ring on my landline with a number clearly showing to make it look legit. Only takes one vulnerable person to fall for their spiel and its a success! Caller: Overseas scammers
Caller: Male with Indian accent
Another scam from the accident investigation department! Why can’t the telecommunications ombudsman do something about these scammers operating within Australia. I’m on the Do Not Call Register - why do we have it?
Scammers!!! Caller: Foreigner trying to scam
Long pause before call clocked in, same as above, scammer about accident. I'd just had one actually lol but knew it was a scam. Blocked. We are a silent number so obviously someone has sold our details.
SCAMMERS... indian accent lady supposedly from the accident claims department. after numerous calls of this nature from various phone numbers i now play along with these idiot /time wasters. at first i said i dont drive ... but then i played along - Oh thank you - are you going to give me some money for a claim..blah blah - in which surprise surprise - she hung up on me. Caller hung up when I answered the phone. Too many of these nuisance calls Caller: 48671395
Caller: Claims Advice
They are the motor vehicle accident scammers - I played them along for 13 minutes at which point I told them that they picked the wrong person today and that I am a solicitor (which I am) and told them that I intend to report for breaches of the Telecommunications Act - they tried to wriggle and say that I had lied to them and that they hadn't done anything wrong because they hadn't asked for my BSB or Account Number - to which I said 'yet' and goodbye.
Called me at work today - calling from the Claims Office - asking if I had been in or had caused an accident. When I asked which insurance company they were calling from he hung up. How they got my work number is unknown.
