I called back number (02) 8073 0572 reached IVR for Seminars Auswide. Bunch of Scammers calling up for Solar Panel rebate bs, just hang up the number and don't say anything. Couldn’t tell who she said she was representing, some sort of lifestyle company, woman had an Indian accent. Apparently my name was chosen to win a new smartphone, I said no thanks it’s a scam and hung up. Number now blocked. Blast an umpires whistle down the phone and get them back with an earache. Suspect Scam Call Centre. Maybe an automated call but hung up when I answered.
I suggest blocking this number
Scammers from India. Don’t answer. Had 5 calls from this number in one afternoon, usually hangs up as I answer Dodgy caller Dodgy caller! Caller: Unicorn Electronics
Indian caller gave me a spiel about how my mobile number had won a tablet like an ipad. Yeah no.

Apparently it’s a govt call for property owners in Victoria enjoying government benefits. Do not answer
This number frequently calls. When i answer they hang up. I check the phone number from caller ID and press dial. I then get this automated message.
The number you have dialled is not connected. Please check the number before calling again.
Called at 4:37pm today and left a message, sounded like it was in Indian and only said a few words before hanging up Rang at 2.07 pm on July 13, hang up as soon as answer machine picked up the call. Got a call from this number tonight, bit before 8. Asking for someone else, said it was the wrong number, and he got defensive, saying we'd already spoken and demanding to know who he was speaking to now. I refused to give him my name, asking him who he was, and he refused to answer. Scam Caller: Bijay (?)
LED light scammer. Asked for company name, and the caller said it was Bijay, I think. I told her that the government had a list of approved people (suppliers) on the website; if I wanted the so-called "free" LED lights, then I would use one of those, and not someone from an Indian call centre, and then hung up.
This guy is still active. Beware.
