Male Indian voice claiming to be from some travel company and telling me that in the last 24 months I filled out a coupon and myself and my family had won 6 nights free accomodation. As he's talking I got onto reverse australia and this page came up, so I told him that I'd just Googled his number and that he's a scammer. This time I hung up before they did so now I'm off to the Scamwatch site to report.

Telling me I've qualified for a discounted overseas holiday, I only have to pay taxes and port charges. I asked him if he was the 'tooth fairy?' He hung up.

Same as many here - indian accented male caller - claimed I'd entered contest in last 2 years - was now able to make use of 70% discount on holiday accommodation.
When asked claimed business was Bluemont Escapes which has a dodgey website with no other search engine hits
When asked for ABN had to talk to others then claimed ABN was 25130168044 - which relates to an alternative business
Treat as a SCAM

When press *10 to check callers or a 101 this number seems to be fixed. The message is : please press 1. There is no option to press delete. So it has sat there on my telephone line for some time.

The next time I have need to call a Technicain I will ask that this number be deleted.

The comments have helped me very much. Thank you for reporting. I am old and I will get a young person to help me delete this number.

Pathetic. I've had a welcome break from the plague of these morons for a while but it's started again. At least I left him saying "Hello? Hello?" to himself for a while before he gave up - and then I left the line open, I hope, for a further half hour or so.
Please do not answer calls from unknown numbers, ever, or this is never going to stop. Let any legitimate callers leave messages and call them back if you need to.

As per some of the comments already posted, obvious scammer. Asked if I remembered filling out coupons for a travel company. when i said know he immediately said that that was understandably because it was some time ago. The call was at 8.25 Qld time! I told him he wasn't going to trap me and hung up.

'Number not connected, please check the number before calling again' This number, and similar number with last few digits changed, has been calling for months.

Caller: GeoTravel - cold caller - scam - Sydney number or asian call centre? ???

Like others here, I was told I'd won a free holiday and when I asked why? I got some waffle about entering a competion but she couldn't say which one or when. When she said I was required to make a small non refundable holding deposit I became suspicious and told her I'm rejecting the holiday and reporting her calling number to scamwatch. She hanged up!
