I had them call me and tell me the same thing, I called them back and they keep on asking for my name and I would say no, you should know my name you called me then they hung up and now the number just calls out calls out. Foreign accent as well Claimed to be from Canberra Solar then changed to Ozgreen Solar Canberra, wanting to organise a time to come an give me a quote and tell me about rebates for solar from the government. Caller: Evil scammer
They're not the messiah; they're a very naughty scammer!
Now go away!
I had a missed call at 11.38pm. Go away!!!! started with the claim that the government was providing some kind of benefit. i was waiting on a work call so did not bother to listen to the spiel and hung up f*cking annoying ring all the tume i never answer, they just hang up I'm living in CBR . The caller called me and identified himself as Marketing Staff for a local solar company . How can i believe . They're at it again in the ACT. Pretending to be from the ATO and asking me to pay a fee or they'll take legal action. I have reported the number to the ATO (what little good that will do). I've had a couple of calls from this number claiming to be a solar company in Canberra. Very strong foreign accent. Not sure if they are legit. Tried to sell me solar panels. Exactly the same as above, ATO are filing a law suit against me, over the phone! Will keep the whistle by the phone to give a good blast next time. Got a call from this number left on answering service at 12:13 Aug 26, voice sounds automated with foreign accent.
"This call is to inform you that ATO is filing law suit against you, to get more information about this case file please call immediately on our department number (02) 6188 5650 I repeat (02) 6188 5650, thank you."
Are you people joking! Doesn't even look like an Oz number, would have been more credible if it at least started with '0'
Rang up claiming to be from Australia Taxation Office and they are going to sue me I had a call from the same number threatening legal action from the ATO. When I asked them to put it in writing, I was told two certified letters had been sent, but no-one had been at home to sign. I was then threatened with action from the AFP. I asked to be put through to the supervisor, but I'm quite sure it was the same person who came back on the line - difficult to say, because it was a foreign accent. Supposedly from ATO, threatening legal action. Due to circumstances I don't pay tax, so completely not true Caller claimed to be from the Australian Tax Office and was ringing in regard to legal action being taken to recover outstanding money. The Tax Office would at least have my correct address and would warn that the call was being recorded. Harrassing calls from this number claiming to be from the Australian Taxation Office. Have called a number of times and they are now saying they're from the AFP.
