Just got a call from this number saying they were from Melbourne Advance and were doing a survey on how people are coping with COVID lockdown in Victoria and that I would go into the draw for a $1500 voucher. A voucher for what? And clearly you'll need some of my contact details for that so that is a hard no. Also I'm in Sydney so not exactly the demographic they're after. I told them I was too busy at work and hung up. I didn't answer and they didn't leave a message. Looked on here for information. I called back number (03) 7038 6976 rang once then gets disconnected automatically. Called back 3 or 4 times and the number was always engaged. SPAM caller for sure Aug 11.
I got a call from this number From someone calling herself Jasmine, saying she was from Melbourne Advance and were doing a survey on how people are coping financially with COVID lockdown in Victoria and that I would go into the draw for a $1500 voucher.
Her first question To me: was I under or over 50?
My response to her: “well my first question to you Jasmine is how did you get this number?”
Her response? - an immediate hang up.
Obviously a SCAM 😠😡
Scammers. Report and block them. Called me at 7:30pm when I called back phone is always engaged. Spam caller don't know the identity. Call shows up tagged as SMART(IP phone) "potential fraud"
Didn't call them back.
Caller: Missed call
I blocked a similar scam recently as mentioned above then this number has started calling without leaving a message.
Clearly they are sharing my number around.
Got a call from this number rang only once and called back many times but it’s just engaged all the time. Probably a scam. The this a spam don’t give them nothing of your Information details Caller: Melbourne Advance
Pretends to conduct a survey about the financial effect of COVID-19. Attempts to extract information in a phishing scam.
I didn't answer and they didn't leave a message. Looked on here for information. Then put them on Block Contact. Caller: Jasmine from Melbourne advance
I'm getting calls from a private number now says she is jasmine from Melbourne advance blah blah blah to both my work and personal phone, multiple times a day. I have blocked the landline numbers and now they call from Private Number. Very frustrating since I am on a DO NOT CALL list.
Dodgy. The poor girls are employed to do the silly job which is not Productive to anyone. waste of time .These guys who run the business must be scrutinized for their legitimacy and if found that it is a fraud must be curbed . Don't waste time and money please Caller: Melbourne advance
They asked about how I was being affected by covid-19. It sounds like a scam and I wouldn’t answer any questions
Scam. DOESNT take call back but keeps phoning. JUST BLOCK THEM. Defiitely dodgy. I got a call from a female (maybe Jess?) saying she was from Melbourne Advance and was doing a survey on how people are coping financially with COVID lockdown and would go into a draw after a 1 minute survey. She automatically launched into questions before I had a chance to respond to any of this info. As soon as I said I wasn't interesting in participating, call was disconnected by them. Unclear if this is AI or a real person Survey. Hung up when I queried the name I didn't answer and they didn't leave a message, called back and they said number temporarily doesn't exist. Looked on here for information.
