Knew my first name. Sounded like a call centre. Told me that they were doing a census on behalf of the local council. Clearly not legit. I hung up on them. They asked questions trying to get me to answer yes to one (clearly so that they can record my voice) - I continued to say no and then asked why they were asking so many questions - she hung up rapidly. Do not say yes ever and here is why.
They take the “yes” recording and use it to authorise unwanted charges whether that’s on a phone or utility bill or even on a credit card. How can this be? Well, when they record you saying “yes” that means that they have your verbal ok to agree to something? They already have your phone number and possibly your name and more information so they can pass through some places as you authorising additional charges
not in service i got same lie too. I also hung up Caller: Indian scammer
Pretends to be conducting a census for the council. DO NOT ANSWER.
Another one of those unwanted call centre calls... As always I report the number, add it to my contacts and then BLOCK the number. I missed the call, I called back and the number could not be connected. I blocked it so they don't try again. Replied back KISS MY ASS instead of YES 100000000000000% SCAM if you see this number THEN BLOCK IT Two phone calls from this number this week
First time I answered the guy got so confused with saying hello that he hung up on me!! Second time didn't bother answering
Caller: Indian voice
Pretending to be from the council. I asked what council and he hung up. SCAM. Never say "yes" to them!
Never leaves a message.
They try from several different numbers the last four digits.
very dodgy. calls me with 9112 ____ numbers daily. I have blocked at least 5 other numbers that started with 9112 already I missed the call, checked here, when I hit redial to try, a recorded voice says this number is not in service. Said he was from the council, I asked why did he not do privacy checks, he then hung up missed call Call centre doing surveys. Sounded dodgy. scammers, called back disconnected She said calling from City of Greater Dandenong...?!
Hang up on me when I didn’t answer her questions about myself
Said they were from the council doing a lifestyle survey, Knew my name
Hung up when I questioned them.
Scam Indian call centre claiming to be "City of Victoria Council". There is no such thing. When when I questioned them they mentioned some other council name. Clearly grasping at straws.
