Another disconnected number when you call back. 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
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)
I called back number (03) 9112 5846 reached voice mail but did not say for what company. 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
Called me asked if it was me using my name i said yes then they said f*ck YOU 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!
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.
They called several times I asked to be removed Today I declined and was assertive but not rude. He said "I will call u every day till u die" WTF Foreign sounding woman, asked me (am I speaking to “my name”) I said yes who’s calling? She then said ahh sh*t and hung up on me. I tried to call the number back 4 times but there’s no answer, it doesn’t even ring. Caller: the caller stated they where from Hume City Council.
I have a smartphone and it automatically detected that the number was fraud, but being curious I answered the call. they said they were from Hume city council asked to speak to me, knew my name, I asked to put them on HOLD. when I went back to the caller he hung up. very suspicious . (how would they know I live in that area??)
They said they were from Darebin City Council conducting a 20 sec cost of living survey. I asked why, and she pushed me to give her 20 seconds of her time. Knowing it was scammer, I continued. First question: Was I between 24-55 years old? After I said no, they asked if I was either 24 or 25. To which I replied with shouldn't you have that on your files. The line went dead. And number is now blocked. Called again, weekly for months
I do not answer, they do not leave a message. Who are they?
Called stating from "Manningham Council". Sounded American. When questioned, hung up straight away. Caller: Foreign man
Asking survey questions:
Have you been out of Victoria in last 12 months?
Are you between 25 - 55?
Are you single or married?
Is your combined income more than $100,000 before tax?
Do you own your home or are you renting?
2 sec message. Just another scammer. Oh, they’ve called again.
No message, regular as clockwork almost weekly for 3 months.
Cost of living survey - four questions. Didn't identify themselves, accented voice on the end of the time. Started to say I didn't want to answer their questions, was told "F$%^ you". Number is now blocked in my phone.
