Basically, this number has been calling me and using my un-abbreviated first name, but our number is in my wife's (different) surname.
Thus they don't know me personally. So, the only place I can think off that has both these pieces of information is in a Domain Name registration.
Also, this number too: (03) 8609 0062
Answered - no response.
Called back - immediate cut-out.
Caller: Web Services company
calling numbers harvested from Domain Registrations, trying to sell Web Development services

Scam caller Indian spam.
Caller: Website SCAMMERS
Get a call once a week from this number. I answer, they hang up. Caller: curry merchants
just block the number. scam artists
answered but hungup imm Scam Indian telemarketer I answer and then they hang up , calling everyday Caller: Scammer
Phones every other day & disconnects if not answered. Indian Call Centre when I do answer. Also use numbers (03) 8609 0068, (03) 8609 0081, (03) 8609 0089. They pretend to have household details so can be personal & friendly but they get aggressive if you don't know the name they ask for. Appears to be a scam based around website development & domain name ownership ????
Caller rang but didn't leave a message. Got a call from this number that immediately hung up when I answered after 2 rings.
Looked it up here to see who it was...
I won't be calling them back.
Scammers. Getting at least 2-4 times a week from different numbers. Blocking all unknown numbers and they keep coming. Caller: An Indian accented lady
Rang me asking for my first name. Wanting to speak to me about my domain that is no longer active. After explaining that is no longer my business, she asked if I have other businesses. Told her not interested and I hung up. Been getting a lot of emails too regarding getting to the first page of google search. Not sure if they are all related.
Getting dozens of calls a week from this and many almost identical numbers. Always call after lunch and at night, so most likely Indian Scammers. Tried calling this one back but is a disconnected number. After investigating, the number is clearly a fake caller ID registered to now defunct company NZ 3 PTY LIMITED. Caller: Nuisance caller
He said his name was Martin, knew the company name and location wanted to speak to owner of the business regarding the profile, big delay through the phone he did not make much sense had him going for a little while till i got bored and hung up, SCAMMER.
Nuisance .. hung up as soon as I answered . Rang back and got message in various languages saying this number is switched off .. please call back later The usual, an Indian-accented caller asks for me by my first name (the version I used when I registered a web domain years ago). I always say, no you have the wrong number.
Interestingly, I've started telling them this number is on the national do-not-call-register (which it is) and they're supposed to check my number against the register before calling. When I tell them this they usually hang up. Don't know if it's the same ones calling back who I told this to, I get a lot of these calls unfortunately.
If you're being badly pestered you can block ALL calls not on your contacts list on a smartphone, and that stopped them after a few weeks. You can find devices online that you can buy to protect a landline the same way too. Failing that, message bank or an old-fashioned answering machine stops almost all of them too.
