Caller: "G.E.E Energy"
Caller said she was "Nancy", but sounded Indian, difficult to get her business name, but eventually go it as G E E Energy. Asked where she was calling from - admitted International call centre (so WHY do they 'spoof' a Melbourne number??). She passed me on to her Manager, "Kevin Wilson" (can they at least use a different name, Kevin gets around!) Anyway, I was vague and declined any offers - not happy to deal with an overseas company or caller.
As soon as I answered the phone using our business name they hung up. spam call centre pest trying to sell solar Caller: (03) 9005 6099
Answered as it wasn’t a blocked number.....nothing, after saying ‘hello’ once or twice it disconnected. Tried calling it back and message was ‘Optus advises the mobile number is disconnected’. For what it’s worth and future reference.
Caller: Calling from an Electric Company (couldn't understand the name given)
Caller was Indian (I am Indian too) & recognized the accent. Requested to speak to the owner of the phone, preferably a responsible person. I explained the owners were not available but if he left his name number & business details I could get the owners to call back. I then asked what was the reason for this call. He replied that he wanted the someone responsible to accept the cost for use of electricity to carry out the work to be done on the property. I said that he must have the wrong number as owners are pensioners & no development was taking place, but developments were being done on several properties up & down the street. But if he gave me all the details I would get them to call back but for the moment I am a relative & living here with my husband. He began to give me the number 039 & then said the company was an electric company & rang off. I retrieved the number from my phone bank. I have since rung the number to find it is not in service. It is a scam call beware!

Calling from Vodafone ..45 % discount on calls
Scam - left a voicemail about 'fraudulent and suspicious activity' Phishing scam. It is nuisance call. Caller: wouldn't give her name - Indian accent
Said she was from Vodafone customer care & offered 40% of my next bill. I asked her what bill ? - so I could see if she new what accounts I held. Couldn't tell me so I asked her if she meant my mobile phn bill. I asked her what was my average monthly spend - NO IDEA. Told me they would send me a text message which I needed to reply to so they could in turn apply the discount. Called Voda myself & the number is not listed with them as belonging to their call centre or any other part of Voda.
Scammy "solar assessment" Same here . "Mark" wanting to talk to the business owner or senior manager regarding solar panels. Wouldn't give me a company name. Spam. Spam -"Kevun Wilson "used to work fornthe "ATO" hassling folks to pay "debts" owed to tax man. Now it seems he's moved on to "solar energy sales"... block, delete, report (03) 9005 6099 - hung up the phone after I said the business name. This number should be blocked Caller: ???
answered phone, gave our company name and as soon as they heard that they hung up. i called back straight away and an automated voice said 'your call could not be connected'
number not connect when i called back Called asking for business owner in regards to free solar evaluation I rang back the number (03) 9005 6099, spoke with someone who hung up right away Was advised that they wanted to come and give a 'free property assessment' for solar panels through the government subsidy. No company name was mentioned at the start of the call and due to the caller being of 'Indian' sounding nature, I terminated before she could ramble off any more.
