Another disconnected number when you call back. Caller: Australian Bureau of Statistics - Cost of Living Survey
Accented caller wanted to do a 4 question survey - I politely declined (as always), they hung up (as always)
Caller: ?Scam potential Identity Theft going by info from others 5 missed calls in a day 6th Nov & 1 on 27 Oct 2020
This phone number (03) 9112 5846 is concerning as they kept calling my number because I have missed the all but 1 call but didn't answer . They never left a message. I've read here from others experience & to me it appears these people are maybe trying to build profiles on individuals re identity theft or phishing . Yet It's also concerning about a person here reporting about being asked if they were single etc & describe another describing questions they began to answer became " too invasive " and they had to hang upon the caller. Several reporting a foreign sounding male & the individual often swears at them & becomes abusive when the public press for more information. The same number also has one or 2 just what you would describe as nuisance call. Then it was reported by someone here as disconnected on same day they call myself & others 27 Oct 2020. 26 complaints so far since October 2020 plus at least 20 others who have clicked the helpful part on the comments hints that people need to be wary as they know names etc too & obviously a persons local council area
I called back number (03) 9112 5846 reached voice mail but did not say for what company. Called me asked if it was me using my name i said yes then they said f*ck YOU and they hung up No message left, and after reading comments here, added to my block list.
Interestingly, lots of numbers in my block list beginning with 03 9112, so they probably cycle through multiple instances
Same as other comments (female Philippino; wants to confirm my name; quick 4 question survey on increased cost of living in Victoria; said she was from something City Council after I asked a couple of times). My response was no, no, no and finished off with I don't have time, not interested and please don't call me again. Got another call today, same person and same scenario. Told her I remember her from last week and not interested and not call me again. Number is now blocked. Let's see how long it lasts before they call from another number.
Anyhoo, to anyone unfamiliar with these scam calls, remember, don't automatically respond with 'yes' when someone unfamiliar asks you to confirm your name over the phone
Heavy foreign accent female...
Caller “Hello, am I speaking to [name]”
Caller “How are you today?”
Me “Where are you calling from?”
Line disconnects. F*tards... number now blocked.
Said I wasn’t interested in such cold calls and they hung up.
Foreign sounding male asked if he was speaking with (my name). I asked why?
He said he was from the Bureau of statistics in Australia. I said I don't think you are. He replied I don't care, f### you, and hung up!
Oh, they’ve called again.
No message, regular as clockwork almost weekly for 3 months.
Cost of living survey - four questions. Didn't identify themselves, accented voice on the end of the time. Started to say I didn't want to answer their questions, was told "F$%^ you". Number is now blocked in my phone. They have been calling my number once weekly for about 8 weeks. I’ve never picked up and they do not leave a message. Caller: Australian Bureau of Statistics - Cost of Living Survey
The lady asked 4 questions:
1. Are you between 25 - 55
2. Are you single or married
3. Is your combined income over $100k
4. Does the current environment affecting your cost of living
Stupid me answering those questions, but I I think those questions won't affect too much?
yet another call that tells me the number is disconnected. Blocked again Scam call. Do not answer any questions This number has called me 8x in the last week or so. Another scammer. Calls at least once a day. Never leaves a message. I've called back and the number disconnects.

It’s probably scam since it doesn’t connect where I call back.
