    Sounds official, like a Government automated call but is really a well organised scammer. Don't be fooled. The only reason I clued up to it was that i knew I don't have any current business with Centrelink.
    Bad scam

    Australia
    Caller: David Abraham allegedly with Centre Link Canberra

    Claimed I had not respond to their repeated messages about my backpayment and that my files have now been transferred to Canberra amd was told to phone the above number and mention an Application No. I looked on my MyGov account and could not see any messages from Centrelink, I then phoned Centrelink and they had no back payment for me and could not see anything showing that they had been trying to message me. I phoned the number requested (02) 6529 0157 and they answered as Human Services......first question they asked was my name, in reply I said if i give you my application number can you tell me my name, with that they promptly hung up on me.......definitely SCAM ......DO NOT RESPOND

    Scam call
    Australia
    Caller: Scammers claiming to be Centrelink, re not responding to letters.

    I just ended a call with them. I picked-up the phone to hear a woman with an automated message, a woman with an Australian accent telling me that the claim for an increase in benefits had been sent to head office in Canberra as I had not responded to many letters. I rang back the given number. I'm not on Centrelink. I have a parent in a nursing home. I told them my name and my mothers. Then the guy with a Mari accent said, "Centrelink won't give us money they take all the money". " I don't want to scam you, you sound nice, then asked rather personal questions, wanted to talk about the size of his appendage and made comments about white women".
    After I challenged him, (we have a silent number,), he tried telling me he was calling from Honolulu in Canberra!!!!! Then claimed to be a Nigerian scammer.

    I hung-up when the music came on, only to ring-back to make sure I'd rung the right number. It was engaged. I could hear others in the background as if they are working out of a call centre.

    Hang-up on these people, they are NOT Centrelink. They can't tell you any of your loved one's details. Notice to Telstra, I won't be paying for these phone calls, as there are enough messages on this string to see they have been operating for some time. The number they told me to ring back on was (02) 652 90 157. If you get one of these calls, hang-up quick!!! .

    Unsolicited call
    Australia
    Caller: David Abraham allegedly with Centre Link Canberra

    Same as the others transferred to Canberra, etc but we had to purchase $400.00 worth of Google Gifts from Woolworths (not Coles).
    That was when we realised this was a scam. We have reported this to Centre Link. Interesting to see if they do anything about it
