Phone rings, but when answered no one speaks. Hangs on for anywhere from 5 seconds to 30 seconds but doesn't make a sound. Scam phone number, threatening law suit is held against you and there will be an arrest warrant if you don't return the call.
Obviously don't return the call or pick up. Report to scamwatch.gov.au
I received a call on June 28th from a man with an Indian accent telling me he was from a power company and they were offering me a discount on my power bill if I payed on time. I told him I was happy with AGL and I received a discount from them and was not interested in changing companies. He then got very aggressive and told me that I should change because their discount was bigger. I told him repeatedly that I was not interested, but he did not listen and then got angry and started yelling repeatedly at me that I must change. I then abused him and told him again I was not interested and hung up. Caller: Scammer pretending to be ATO
Automated call pretending to be from ATO stating me my family would be arrested on warrant
Caller: (03) 9016 9154
I had a missed call from this number. Voice mail has they had a law suit against me for tax fraud and if I didn’t ring back, they would arrest me. I didn’t ring back
Caller: Some Victorian number
It's the scam call "there's a law case against you" pre-recorded BS message which was left on my voicemail when I did not answer.
Been getting calls from Western Australia and Victorian numbers.
Didn’t answer and received a message that I had a warranted againist me and needed to ring them back. Lol no. i have had repeated calls from this number but never answered as i did not recognise it. i have now blocked it but i am still recieving repeated attempts. I called back number (03) 9016 4390 reached voice mail but did not say from what company. Called a lot of times in a few weeks. Told me they are from some kind of power company and ask if I want to change company. I rejected them a couple of times but they still keep calling. Once I was so angry that I picked up the call and let them listened to my tv shows. Repeated calls from this number ,everyday. Today a guy tells me its a Power and Gas company. Told them yesterday do not call and remove me from their data but no they ring again. This time I said this is a silent number and not to call it and he hung up. Now see if it happens again. Not Happy. I received a call today on July 27th from a man with an Indian accent telling me he was from a power company and they were offering me a discount on my power bill if I payed on time. I told him I was not interested in changing companies. He then got very aggressive and told me that I should change because their discount was bigger. I told him repeatedly that I was not interested, but he did not listen and then got angry and started yelling. I hung up on the a**hole Thanks to all the previous posts. I've blocked the bast**ds!! Just had a call from this number. The gentleman claims he is representing "ECO SOLAR" When I told him I was on the "Do Not Call Register" and that I would be reporting him, he hung up very quickly. I call this number back and the call is directed to and overseas call centre. 99.9% sure this is a telemarketer. Missed the call as I was driving. I called back a gentleman answered and said they were offering discount on electricity. I had to ask 4 times as I couldn't understand him. Waste of time, don't answer.
