Seems to be a phishing scam Received 14 phone calls from this number IN 1.5 WEEKS. Trying to flog a "government initiative" bullcrap scam.
Have told them repeatedly to delete my number, screamed at them, abused them, they keep calling.
Was put through to a supervisor after reaching a level of psycho, clearly communicated not to call me anymore and the "supervisor" goes into the sales pitch again.
I very rudely told them all the **** words under the sun & to remove my number.
Caller: (02) 9071 2800
These calls are being a nuisance calling all the time
Total nutcases. Not only have I never answered but I immediately blocked the number when no one bothered to speak - yet they seem to be intent on calling constantly until doomsday.
By the way, in response to other reports on this site, as everyone who signed up to it knows the Do Not Call Register was not established as an international policing agency to track down the international crime gangs that are responsible for the bulk of these scam calls. Referring to it is is pointless. These are not calls from telemarketers in Australia: they are calls from scammers using spoofed numbers. If it was easy to put a stop to this plague by tracing the calls to the constantly changing locations in countries such as Nigeria and India, international agencies would have done so by now. They are trying, and telcos are blocking thousands of scam calls every day although it would certainly be good if they could do better.
In the meantime, just don't answer the calls, and block the numbers if you can.
5 calls today, no message was left Three calls in 30 mins. Scammers Caller: Scam
I don’t normally get calls from an 02 number other than scams so I hung up. This site confirms they are scum scammers.
totally a scam, received 11 calls over the past few days, never any message and when calling the number back its always busy, probably scamming another person I blocked this number but that doesn't stop these pathetic pests. I got two attempted calls in the space of 20 minutes this evening.
Don't answer calls from these scamming lowlifes. Don't ever speak to them. Don't call them back (I can't understand the compulsion to do that).
Although my number is registered on the Do Not Call Register (Waste of Time Does Not Stop Telemarketers) this number constantly calls me every evening - have blocked - our Govt should do something about these dodgy pests that constantly harass Pain in the Butt. Called 3 times in one hour. Something should be done to stop these pests !!! Called me 3 times today with not even one message. Reading the comments of others, it's a corrupt Telco situation if it cannot be shut down. Blocked them. 3 calls in 3 hours. I dont know the number so don’t answer it and they don’t leave a msg. This number called 5 times in one day. Didn’t answer but keeps repeating the rapid calls every few days. No message. Keeps phoning. He said he was coming to my area tomorrow to install energy saving shower heads and wanted to know how many showers we have. I told him I don't want them, he was persistent so I hung up. This is the second time he has called. Yep, 4 calls in 2 days from the same number. Thoroughly sick of blocking numbers at the end of each day! Scammer using spoofed number that is Registered to a serial Telecommunications Act breacher Chime Communications. Number is disconnected when calling back. Chime were fined for breaching the Act over 1 million times a couple of years ago but they simply don't care. Authorities should shut these scammers down, particularly when they are based at L 1 502 Hay St Subiaco, WESTERN AUSTRALIA, 6008 Australia. and are part of iinet. They were recently the subject of an ACMA investigation that found them to be in breach of several regulations. It's not that hard to find them and the regulators know they are non-compliant, so why the hell are they still operating and why don't they close them down?
