    Yes, this is correct, unfortunately.

    We have been made aware that our company's phone number is being "spoofed", by an overseas call centre as part of a scam that is targeting consumers in Australia and also in New Zealand. If you have received a call from our number (02) 9939 6888) as part of this, it was not Forrest Marketing Group making the calls. Please register a complaint with your phone provider and if appropriate, with the local Police. We have registered this scam with both the Police in NSW and with the ACMA, who are investigating.

    Caller: (02) 9939 6888

    I am NZ based and received a call from this telling me they were FMG, but got really cagey when I drilled for more details - they had my number but were asking for my husband so I was a bit suss. They ended up hanging up when I asked why they were calling.

    Pushy woman on the phone kept asking questions, didn’t matter how many times I told her she had the wrong number she would ask again. Called back & asked the same questions again. She hung up on me after I got cheeky lol.

    Said they were from FMG in NSW doing a consumer habits survey - but at the end of it tried to sell me a future call for investments from a colleague. Asked a bunch of personal questions that I had fun with - looks like a total scam. Be careful.

    Is this what we have to look forward to with the NBN, the ability to hack phone numbers?

    An overseas call centre is "spoofing" our company phone number, so that it appears that we are calling people, often in New Zealand, but also in Australia. This is not the case and we have reported this issue to the Police and to the ACMA. We understand that the calls are part of a scam so if you receive a call like this, please report it to your phone provider but do not divulge information to the callers.

    For further information on Call Spoofing, please see this report by the ABC: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-05-03/mobiles-and-landlines-targetted-by-international-phone-scammers/9719820
