Insist on talking even if I made clear I have meeting coming up.
Called at 8pm at night. I answered and then just hang up click. Tried calling back and phone just hangs up Same again, not interested if you don't give an answer at all. I just pick up and wait for them to speak! This number phoned me claiming to be from the Bank of Melbourne and a suspicious overseas debit on my account. They wanted me to download an app on my phone. I said I needed to get my glasses and just left them on hold until they eventually hung up and then they tried calling my phone immediately on three other different numbers which I didn’t answer but blocked all four. SCAM SCAM SCAM. (03) 7020 5688 this no. is a scammer. Beware. This number called my place of business. After I answered with the business intro, CLICK! Caller: Scam
Called twice during day. Answered once and after 3 seconds with no answer hanged up.

A referee whistle stops then calling back from hospital.
Why does Telstra sell these cons 100 local numbers? Telstra is complicit. Aiding criminals.
They have tried to get me to answer on several numbers.
Just tell them that there country should reserve there energy as oxygen is running out Energy comparison calling on behalf of the government. Wanting to advised that my energy bill is doubling up. He advised that my bill will be charged extra. I advised I don’t own a house or rent, nor do pay the electricity bill and he insisted that I do, theres a bill with my name. I advised that I do not and he tried to argue, he then hung up. fxxk these callers This is SCAM call.
The auto-dialler no. that tried me was: (03) 7020 5688... called back from a diff no. as verification & got busy signal.
Given the looong string of complaints against several numbers, I propose to everyone:
1. Block ALL phone number extensions from (03) 7020 5600-5699 (‘they’ have probably bought them all.
2. Report your complaint to TIO - Telco Industry Ombudsman
3. Report your complaint to ACCC to investigate wider mandate on nuisance/harassment/unsolicited calls.
4. Keep a log of time/date & which phone number tried to call you - to stop this garbage & as always, EVIDENCE of patterns of harassment is King.
Hope this helps everyone - from someone who I also fed up with filtering this garbage.
