    A man from this number called at 1020 today, if this was [the name of our business] and asking whether we accepted American Express cards. I indicated we did not. He then asked if we accepted any other cards. When I asked what he was calling in reference to, he hung up. After reading the reviews on this site, I called the number back and received a message indicating that 'This is a market research company." I have since blocked the number.

    Caller: Scammer with Strong Asian Accent

    I answered phone: "Good Morning"
    Man with strong asian accent asked: "Is your name <full name> ?".
    I said: "No ..."
    (I was about to say "no-one here by that name", but before I could, and he hung up.

    How the hell did he get my full name !
    Extremely few places know my full name: banks, ATO, Telstra, Ergon, and that's it.
    For every other on-line account I have, I make up and use different names, dates of birth, etc, so there is no way he could have got this information from Facebook, Twitter, etc.

    Same as AMEX posts above. He introduced himself way too quickly for me to understand it. When he called he specifically named my husband and asked if he could speak with him. I said he was busy, then got the AMEX question. I was getting a bit suss at this stage and he said thank you for helping him complete his survey. SUPER WEIRD.

    Similar to the last two. Wanted to speak to my wife (the business owner). I said she was busy so he seemed happy to talk to me. I couldn't figure out what he was on about, so I got wife to talk as well. We eventually got to the American Express question. When we explained all our business payments are cash or bank transfer, he hung up.

    Caller: Some scumbag

    Call from a mumbling idiot this morning via (02) 6140 3464.
    He asked if this is [business name]. I said yes, as it is our business name.
    He then asked if we take Amex. No.
    I asked him where he was from (to see if he was a client, although he sounded so dopey that I had very strong doubts. He said England, but he'd just moved to Glenroy [near our location].
    He then asked if we take other credit cards. I again said no.
    He thanked me, hung up and crawled back under his rock! a**hole!

    Caller: Jack - man with an English accent.

    just had a phone call from and English man named jack. wanting to make a payment with amex. when i said we dont he seemed agitated.
    he said his step dad needed to pay an invoice and that he had left urgently to catch a plane. i asked the name of the company he said G & M. i asked for relating invoice number and he began to tell me he wasn't sure and was a bit confused. started discussing bank details asked if we accepted cheques or cash. all i said was that the details were on the bottom of the invoice for reference. when i asked for the relating invoice number again to reference he said he would go and get it sounded nervous and then came back and repeated the questions. kept saying he couldn't find the invoice he has been asked to pay. just block the number. there should be more penalties for these people.

    Caller: "John - from Sydney" with an Indian accent

    Wanted to know if our business was still located at (our old address) - when I asked who was asking he said John. I asked where he was calling from - "Sydney but no company". I replied that we no longer had an office there - his reply was "Ok, I will have to tell my father. He also wants to know if you still accept AMEX as payment?" When I said that we do not take any payments at our office he just said OK and hung up.

    Asked about AMEX being accepted or not, I told them yes and inquired why they are asking. He/she said asking about because their boss wanted to know and want to be a customer...definitely spam.

    Got a call this morning, a man asking if my company was still located on Lonsdale street. I replied that we have relocated but didn't explain further. He then asked if I accept American Express. I thought this was unusual and asked "Who am i speaking with?" He replied " Joe (unintelligible mumble). Do you accept AMEX?" Something just didn't seem right, so i asked him to specify where he worked and what was the reference number on the tax invoice he wished to pay. He "Ummmm'ed" for too long and that confirmed I was speaking to a complete idiot and this was definitely scam. I told him he had called the wrong number and hung up.

    They called asking if we took Amex so they can make a payment and then tried to confirm our address. I knew it was suss when they mentioned a very old address and I asked for what booking they were making payment for and he then said he doesn't have one. I then asked what service he was interested in and hung up on me. Definitely a scam given the above comments and his reaction. Good try no sale a.hole!
