Caller: Vic health
I received a message saying Vic health is going to contact me regarding my 2nd dose vaccine. I have done both dose of vaccine and i didn't get a call.
Text message preceded the call claiming to be "VIC Health" which is NOT the correct name for DH. Text claimed to follow-up second dose COVID-19 vax, which I already received. DH will only call from a hidden number. Caller: Claimed to be DHHS
Asked me if I made a booking for vaccination….
Sounds sus but they didn’t ask any other information from me.
Is this legit or not?!
Caller: Covid 2nd Dose
I just wanna say be careful. My mum had an sms about this vic health bs stuff and she went to call it. In the call, the voicemail said about not calling and crap and my mum rung the same number 4 times. I stopped her and asked the actual covid hotline and they also said its a potential scam. Don't call these numbers the 2nd time if you know its going to say the same things and hang up. I hope this helps you to be safe
Caller: Department of Heatlh
Not a scam number, this is a Vic Department of Health number
This is legit.
I got the SMS before the call and booked my vaccine which I attended today.
Pretend to be from DJHS call in regard to my vaccination Claiming to be from DHHS (department of health and human services) however that acronym no longer exists in Victoria.
Hung up before they got any info but very suspicious. They also knew where I had booked my initial vaccine appt (but I didn’t get it done there) so they stuffed that up too.
I received their text message which said they will call me and book my second dose of vaccine. However, I have fully vaccinated. It is clearly a scam call. Looks like they are gathering people’s personal information and target the vulnerable groups to exploit. Caller: The claim to be DHHS
Ive been called 10 times today between 12.17pm and 7pm. It comes up as Potential Fraud so l dont answer. I try to call back but ALWAYS get recorded message. Theyve contacted me several other times in the last 2 weeks as well.
This is NOT DHHS - do not accept calls from this number, it is a confirmed scam seeking personal details and passwords. DHHS have confirmed it is a scam I reached out to VIC Health and they have confirmed that this is a scam. Do not provide any information to this number. Very likely a scam. SMS they were from Victorian contact tracing and prepare to receive a phone call, called 15 times in 2 minutes then haven’t heard from them again in days. The sms looks official but the numbers you can’t call back and they are probably collecting credit card details to “mail test kits”. Caller: DHHS
I received a call from this number to conduct an interview re COVID exposure. Then within the next couple days I was receiving calls from a private number leaving msgs saying they are calling from DHHS about the same thing!
I was immediately sus as you can imagine. When I spoke to the private number I explained who I’d spoken to already and was confused as to why I was being called again. She said due to the large volume of calls they have to make DHHS do put call lists out to agency call centres for assistance. So this is no a hoax number
Caller: (03) 8624 4051
I didn't answer then received voicemail to ring Hugo 1800 675 398 about upcoming appointment, i called and it is covid vaccine booking line??? although they didn't know anyone had called me. thanked me for letting them know😕
Caller: VicHealth - Covid-19 Callback
This is a legit callback.
I inquired about getting the vaccine through the COVID hotline and they called back on this number to book me in at one of the hubs.
Does look suss but it isn’t.
Several sms today attached to this number. Calls no connecting. No idea what the calls are about. Very suspicious it may be a scam Caller: DHHS Victoria
Got a call following up from a text (two texts actually). Person confirmed my name and then got the whole DHHS spiel about how the call would be recorded for safety and quality control, and how health information may be required with consent blah blah blah. I was just about to say "I agree" when the caller hung up on me. Didn't call straight back so I don't know what the call was about
I wasn't called but I received a text from a number with the title "Vic Health". The text said to expect a call from the number "in regards to COVID-19". I booked a vaccination this week so I figured it was related. However its been 2+ hours and I still haven't received a call, and I'm not going to call the number. I wasn't suspicious until I searched it up Caller: 8624 4051
