Caller: Scam Caller Pretending to be from ABS
An arsehole claiming to be from ABS called Max called and when I said 'I don't wish to partici....' he let out a large sigh and hung up on me before I could finish my sentence.
I contacted ABS (Australian Beureau of Statistics) directly afterwards and they were surprised to hear that an outbound call from them would show up like a home telephone number. They are following up on the matter. SCAM CALL - do not engage.
Scam. Claiming to be Australian Bureau of Statistics and wanting me to participate in a survey. When I said I’d never known the ABS to cold call they hung up. Beware! Caller: Says ABS , 10 second survey
Started to ask how many people in household. Hung up after saying I did not wish to participate
Said was calling from ABS - when I said I was at work and to call back another time, became aggressive and frustrated. I found this suspicious and googled number, my suspicions were justified in light of other comments on this page. Dont give info!!!! I asked where did you get my number and they said Australian Database then I asked where are you calling from and hung up on me!!!!! I tried to ring the number back and got a beeping engaged like tone. Sounds like a SCAM be careful. Called me and voicemail was left. It sounded like an office. Didnt bother calling back. this number pretended to be ABS with population questions, when I questioned her more as I didn't know who she was she abruptly hung up! Call on 2 July 2021 12:08pm - no message left
Call on 19 July 2021 12:29pm - once again no message left.
I do not answer calls which are not in my contacts. If they are genuine they will leave a message
Received a call from this number. Didn't answer and no message was left. Suspect SCAM caller. Caller: Female ‘Annie’ claiming to be from Australian Bureau-of Statistics
Caller hung up after me asking - are you sure you’re from ABS?
Caller: didnt answer
