Caller: Indian accent
Told him to go back to india. The phone rang and I answered saying hello (not advising my name). He knew my name when I picked up. I said yes. He advised he wanted to talk about my electricity bill for my house and he wanted me to confirm my post code. I didn’t provide any of my details and told him I don’t own a house. He then asked me if I rent I said no I’m just crashing with a friend. He then hanged up on me. Scam call and they had name and post code but didn’t know I don’t own a house. Did not answer call and they did not leave a message. I have blocked the number, Constantly calling, hanging up and saying nothing. Number does not exist when calling back. Will blow their eardrums out on their next attempt with my whistle. Bloody nuisance. they called twice today but did not leave a message. added the number to the blocked caller list. since i gave my details to the Choosi.com.au website I get a lot of spam calls now. This one could be a robot checking to see if the number is valid. Didn't answer as I thought spam and from here I can see that it is. It is a number without an owner.
How do you get a phone number without having to register your name/company?
Telstra has a lot to answer for allowing these scammers into the phone network.
I find that asking intimate questions about their body gets them to hang up instantly!
Shouldn't to answer the numbers you don't know . I got the same. But believe it is the Liverpool in Sydney 02 as I have had other calls that come up with suburbs. Like so many of these problem calls, this number is 'owned' by Symbio Networks, a VoIP 'carrier' that allow foreign operators to use Australian numbers through their system.
They can be contacted on (02) 9994 8555
blocked but still gets through Has rung multiple times over several days. Leaves no message in voicemail. crap marketing they call you but don't ever leave message = TELESCUM Asking about if you have personal insurance. Frustrating - a number of calls. When I answered the hang up and you can't call back
Great resource here (from other posts) seems to show that it seems to be an Indian call centre calling about electricity
No matter what happens - blame Telstra. They are responsible for everything, including Trump, anti-vaxxers, Scott Morrison and the fire in Notre Dame. When they're finally gone and 30,000 more Australians are unemployed I'm sure the overseas multi-nationals Vodafone and Optus will do an amazing things for you. 226 complaints means instant block. Love this app! Very rude. Calling regarding gas bill.
I ask how come he got my postcode, and he try to ignore my question.
