This number came up as a "smart number", supposed to be Samsung Electronics Australia. I very much doubt it. I'll now block it Caller: Samsung Electronics Australia
I got a call from this number but its strange, normally a number with who it is, would be something I added to my call list & I didn't!!! & they didn't leave a message either, I'm sure if it was Samsung they would have left a msg!!! that's how I know its a scam!
Received a call from this number asking for a person (the name I use on Facebook, which is not my real name). I asked who I was speaking to& she muttered an indistinguishable name. She repeated again, asking to speak to *person*. I repeated my question of where are you calling from - again the response of 'are you this person, can I speak to him' (I'm female). Clearly a scammer... Caller: SMS
I couldnt catch the name of the company, they were saying SMS and then something else. Something to do with Self Management Superfunds. They asked if I had a connection to Au super. I didnt answer her question. She kept repeating that they werent trying to sell me anything to do with super but improving my super set up. I hung up at this point. It was also a very bad line so clearly not an AU number.
Caller: Female (Phillipino)
Asian lady asking for my name, then saying she’s from Singapore. Hung up and blocked. Call many times over many days
Definitely spam Caller: "International Media Group" (02) 9119 2586
- This number ((02) 9119 2586) rang me at around midday on 22 June 2021.
- They said they were "International Media Group" and that were notionally doing a "survey" about how COVID ahs impacted their partners' readers.
- They said they'd got my details (including my full name!) from their business partners such as Forbes Magazine, which I do not read and have not given my details to.
- It registered as a spam number on my phone, and all these comments are confirming that this may be a longheld spam number that has used a variety of different scams to get info from people.
Scam I don't answer any number I don't have in my list. If it's that important they can leave a message. If they ring 3 times without a message, well, they get the golden ticket to my sh*tllist...my blocked list is growing every day. HAHA same happened to me Missed call from this ny=umber at 2:10pm on Thursday 22nd April 2021 Caller: (02) 9119 2586
Came up on my mobile as Samsung Electronics Australia and as we have a number of Samsung products in my business, I answered. Instead it was an overseas caller speaking very poor English offering offshore property management admin services (we are a real estate office). Told them not interested and hung up. 10 minutes later the same number came up but without the Samsung name tag????. Have now blocked
Scammer, no message left. Another number to block Spoof caller. Scammers. Definitely called from overseas - Purporting to be conducting research on behalf of New York Times about superannuation - scam Telstra would have given them this number so they should who it is and then together with the police do something about it. They are still at it. Thanks for the comments. Number is now blocked. This is the third number I have blocked in the last 24 hrs. If they don’t leave a message it has to be dodgy. Said he was conducting a survey. He knew my name. When asked where he got my name and number from the call started to "break up"...... after about 10 seconds there was another voice that had been modulated or altered in some way.... said some weird things and then did an :evil laugh"...... exactly how you would expect out of a horror movie. Was an extremely weird experience and would have been quite frightening if I had not looked up this web page to find 23 pages of complaints.....
Clearly a sicko.....

They are so dumb - if the number is BLOCKED why would you keep ringing it??????
I had a call from this number on my wife's phone. (02) 9119 2586, from a man with Indian accent claiming to be from NAB, wanting to know if I would accept a deposit for $800 and something dollars from a Mr John Smith in the United States of America.
I responded it was illegal to make sales calls to this number, he hung up immediately!!!
