I called back the number (02) 8317 1485 and reached vm but couldn't hear the company name Long silence and then a female Indian voice: "Hello, my name is <I forget>. I am calling you about <missed what it was>"
I put the phone next to the radio and she was gone shortly afterwards.
Scam Silently listen then lady talk and she hang up
Block the number
Believe marketing number
I answered call. They asked to speak to me by name and when I asked who was calling they hung up. Missed a call from this number. I called back and the voicemail message was a robot voice with an accent that said something like "regarding sales and marketing". Seemed fishy. This number has called a couple of times always around dinner time. I did answer as I was waiting for an urgent ( medical call back ) attempted to tell the Indian gentlemen I'm waiting for an urgent call, took no notice and asked me if he could interest me re: Solar. Scam roaches Called my partners work phone many times, I didn’t realise it was a scam of some sorts until I called back and pressed 9, however they have called this number a lot even after talking with them explaining I don’t own my house and offered me some assistance for that I hung up instantly still calling back though. Indian gentlemen who knew my name. Asked if I was a Vic home owner. Then said regarding Victorian Government. Scheme. Apparently re solar panels. Answered. They hung up after 5 seconds silence. Telemarketing for solar panels. Most likely from India going through a local number trying to look like they are ringing from Australia.
I hung up within half a second after I was asked " Do you have solar Panels" Most likely they have various clients and it may be solar panels one day and tax minimisation scams the next.
I blame the telcos for all this. They could easily stop all this quite easily. They have technology but they refuse to because they make money out of these Spam/Scams
Caller: "Solar Rebate program"
Solar rebate program employee called me on this number and wanted to talk about electricity bills. He said I am aware that I own a home in VIC yet I am not a home owner. Sounds really scammy; be careful. When I told him if he has my email already, send me something via email, he became extremely pushy and said I can ask for a call back to speak with an 'expert' or I can meet them in person lmao. I obviously declined. If anyone finds out company name, leave a complaint.
I just didn’t answer we r tracking these Answered. No one spoke Caller: scam
first for awhile however seems like they are cranking again. recorded voice blah blah then asking me to press 9 on my phone to opt out of future calls. No chance, your blocked DH!
Scam - said they were calling from the Government and that they understand I have a home in Victoria (I live in NSW and I don’t have a home) this is a telemarketing scam Dodgy Caller: (02) 8317 1485
