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 Wanting to speak to me about my domain that is no longer active.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.
Yes, that would be right. All the worst most aggressive email spam, and all the scam callers I get, use the details I used to register a web domain years ago. Been regretting it ever since. That's a well-known source for them to get your contacts, and why so many of them claim they want to make a website for you. If you register a domain you MUST pay extra for the privacy option! And create a special email just for that purpose, don't use your every day address. Ideally a whole new phone number too, just get a $2 sim if you need to be contacted for it at all Yes its scammers Caller: Nuisance Caller
Nuisance caller. Rang me twice. When I answered they hung up straight away.
Caller: Scammers probably
me "hello. hello. hello"
silence. then 1 second of call centre chaos before it clicks off
