Dodgy as. Sounds legit but don’t trust its dodgy
I got the call from these guys asking about a financial health check. Only gave details about my name and got on google while on the call to find this page. Hung up and called CBA back to advise them of a fraudulent number but was advised that it was indeed them calling to enquire if I wanted further assistance with a home loan enquire. Told the CBA guy on the phone that it was a bit odd in the way they’ve called, to which he agreed, but assured that the call was legitimate.
Caller: (02) 8629 4004?
This number called me today at 2.59pm with ID of Blacktown New South Wales. I know no one from Blacktown and figured it was a fake so didn't answer call.

Basically how it works is whenever you do banking or you are having a finacial settlement happening, especially with a third party, somewhere along the line your personal details are sold by nefarious people, who make money by selling your details to scammers in india.
Then an indian women will connect to a proxy phone line in Australia which this number (02) 8629 4008 to seen legit and calling from Australia. Their pathetic attempt at an Australian accent gives it away easily.
Do not give any details to them. The best way to completely waste their money on your details is by sowing doubt in their information accuracy. Tell these scammers that they must have the wrong person and that their information must be wrong, or they have the wrong number or that this isn't their "targets" number. Best way to completely disrupt their operations and throwing a spanner in their works.
Called number and went to recorded message asking for account number and of course didn't give it. Caller: CBA
Said they were calling to see if it was a good time to chat and if i needed any financial help etc... Since when do CBA call at this time when they cant even open their banks on a Saturday
sh*t! I just had this number call me, asked me my name, dob & address which I gave her.. she said it was about a home loan which I have been saving for but haven’t enquired about it. Should I be concerned? Can they do anything with my personal details. I didn’t think anything of it until I hung up.
This is a scam number Brittaney, if you have been looking at the CBA website or perhaps logged into your CBA account they most likely have tracked you as being there and checking out home loans. That's how they have your information - your IP address is tracked and what you are looking at. Banks trade data all the time so they may also have purchased your data from another bank. I answered but they hung up. I registered with CBA's 'Covid impact' service yesterday, so the posts on this page bout CBA Covid Support make sense Didn’t leave a message call from Bankstown Caller: Commonwealth Bank
Genuine caller from CBA who were wanting to check in with me regarding my home loan enquiry.
They rang and left no message. Tried calling number from a different phone, wouldn't even connect. Why are they even allowed to call when they are clearly dodgy ? I called back number (02) 8629 4004 reached IVR for Commonwealth Bank. Caller: CBA
The guy called me from this number on Saturday afternoon about 3pm. Asking about my financial and ask my details, stupidly I told them, after they gave me a confirmation from my cba inbox message. After hung up and I start worried if this was legit or not. Will contact CBA tomorrow

Phoned twice (about a week apart).
First time I didn't answer and they didn't leave a message.
The second time I answered and they hung up immediately.
I wont be answering again.

got a call from this number and didn't answer as I don't know anyone in Blacktown. I rang back on a different number and the lady answered but didn't say she was from the CBA until I asked her who she was. She asked for my name, bank number and password so she could identify me to be able to give me some help. Dum arse as if.
Got a call from this number on Saturday afternoon. Looked it up before answering. I don’t bank CBA and never would, so didn’t answer and they chose not to leave a message. I suggest that if the call is legit, and they want to be taken seriously, they at least leave a message.
