MAJOR SCAMMERS THAT COMMIT IDENTITY FRAUD, I FELL VICTIM TO THEIR SCAM! VICTORIA POLICE ARE SEEKING THE CRIMINALS BEHIND THIS SYNDICATE
Caller: Woman Indian accent
THESE PEOPLE ARE SERIOUS FRAUDSTERS! They tricked me into giving them my date of birth after telling me they were from Optus, they knew my name, my plan details and when my plan finished and said they were offering me an ongoing discount. They changed my contact details on my Optus account and suspended my text messages, they ordered a new iPhone. It's only that I got suspicious moments after the call and called Optus to check if they were legitimate that the order was stopped and my account information repaired and new passwords put in place. I don't know the level of detail they now have of me and whether I'll fall victim to further identity fraud. BE CAREFUL, VICTORIA POLICE IS SEEKING THESE SCAMMERS!
Called me claiming to be calling about solar rebates. When I questioned about how she got my details she said I should google and I was "talking like stupid" and hung up. A lady claimed to be calling from Vodafone and said I have won a iPhone 12. No charges whatsoever for the phone but she started the process by asking for my Vodafone account PIN number and that just sounded too good to be true They are thieves - dont give them your info. Caller claimed to be from Optus and offered bill discounts due to COVID-19. Complaint lodged with Do Not Call Register. Caller: (03) 9108 7728

Caller: Green Energy
Indian scammers, calling selling solar panels. Well actually trying to scam me out of the federal gov incentive. They need to get smarter, I would have received at least 20 of these calls in the last 12 months. Block the number as they are clearly moving from one scam to the next.

Indian lady saying she was from optus offering 35% off bill for next three months, said I didn't trust her and I wasn't the account holder (which optus would know) she was persistent so I just hung up on her. Caller: Dinah
Scammers 100% pretending to be Optus offering a 20% mobile phone discount - they had my full name and said I was with Optus, so they got my email address and date of birth before I twigged and hung up! Dammnnn... I called Optus who confirmed it's a scam and I had to add extra security to my account with them. Hope they don't try to hack other accounts with these personal details... Dammmmmm
Caller: (03) 9108 7728 Indian Scam Call Centre pretending to be Optus Billing Department
Typical SCAM callers calling right before dinner time. Calling from "Optus Billing Department" to ask if I was an Optus Customer. So why do they have to ask if I am??? Ended call there and then with these Indian Scammers.
Pretended to be from Optus, I would get 35% off my bill if I verified myself by spelling my name and giving my DOB. Told him I would call Optus and confirm this is a genuine offer, as I was not comfortable verifying myself with them calling me. Tried to convince me that he was from Optus and I had nothing to fear; I hung up on him. Caller: (03) 9108 7728
Scam: claims to be from Optus and offering a discount but they are not. Checked with Optus who confirmed this is a scam
Caller: This no keeps calling me I don't answer them.
Someone from Melb keeps calling me and so don't know anyone in Melb so I don’t answer. Then a guy rang or texted and said I was trying 2 buy a frypan on eBay I said no I didn’t because I have plenty.
Just had a call from this number. Indian accent. Claiming to be from Vodafone promotions dept and wanted to give me a new iPhone valued at $2400.
I said what’s the catch? He said no catch, just provide name and address and he’ll post the phone free of charge.
I said to him if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.
Said I’m not interested and hung up.
Don’t get caught up in their scam.
