Caller: Detector Inspector
To arrange a routine smoke alarm service at the house I rent. All above board from my point of view as this is an annual routine service.
I called back number (02) 9657 4290 spoke to a woman who said company name is Detector Inspector. Caller: It is a genuine company called detector inspector
It is their syd office . Head office is Melbourne . Its not a scam .
Funnily enough they didn't know my name but asked for it which I declined. Scam scam scam Caller: Fire alarm smoke detector inspector??? Firm
This is not a legitimate business transaction- do not allow this business to make you believe they need to check your fire alarms/smoke detectors, don’t give any private information to them. If it was a legitimate transaction they would have your information from the real estate, & you’d be expecting their call.
Don’t speak to them believe you me any transaction requests that are required will always be actioned first through your real estate agent directly to you if you are a renter.
This is a fairly clever scam I believe because it seems somewhat legitimate initially until you realise it’s not.

This is a scam. They are not engaged by your real estate agent, they do not have authorization to enter your home and they do not have a legal basis to drum up business this way. At best, it is misleading conduct under the Trade Practices Act and you should call the Fair Trading Commission (NSW) and lodge a formal complaint or report them to the NSW Police Force. The callers are from a call center in (surprise!) the Philippines. If you entertain these idiots, you will be fleeced.
Not legit - I own my house yet they insisted my real estate agent asked them to call. Penny finally dropped and they hung up pissed off with me.
