Like other reports, Indian-sounding male saying better DNC system starting tomorrow. Wanted me to confirm details like whether I pay by direct debit.
Other voices in background - so probably a call centre.
Probably a scam and I hung up.
They called a number that we do not use ?
It's a scam / sales pitch / phishing expedition.
Caller: An Indian male
Said he was from the Do Not Call register company on behalf of all phone companies. Had details available in White Pages, wanted to know of I paid my account by Visa. When I questioned his integrity he told me I would be in trouble because the call was recorded.
Caller: Same as above cases.
Birth date and credit card used for my telephone account triggered suspicion. Hang up Indian voice.
Caller: Male Indian claiming to be from the do not call register
Started asking details. Told him I didn’t know who he was and I wasn’t going to answer any of his questions.
Seeing the number listed here, I didn't answer the call. How are numbers obtained? I suppose from white pages online. Since three months we have a private number but our number is still in the data systems of scammers as well as old paper phone books. Though, I don't think scammers consult paper phone books to find numbers.
acma "Do not call" number:
For consumers: 1300 792 958
For industry: 1300 785 749
Do Not Call website:
Caller: (03) 8652 1629 said he was from the do not call register.
He has an Indian accent and wanted my date of birth. That is when I hung up on him.
Female caller telling me she could stop all calls other than important ones like family etc. she stated my address I told her it was wrong and hung up. He said he was from a call blocking service, and that he could block calls to my phone.
I asked him how he knew which calls to block, and he said he would block satellite calls.
Sounded like a scam, so I hung up.
Caller: Supposedly someone from the Do Not Call Register !!
Rang me at 5:30pm on a Friday evening and the caller, who had an indian accent) claimed to be from the Do Not Call Register.
The worrying thing is, he had my name, telephone number and address ... probably scammed from the White Pages as the details he gave me were the listing details.
When confronted he asked if I thought he was a scammer and when I aswered "yes", he went on the defensive and stated he cant help me thn.
I just hung up on him in the end.
