    I really hope people aren't being sucked into this, It sounds like a scam to for older people to tell them if you have money.

    As it is ringing I check number on my computer. Definitely don't answer numbers I don't recognise. EVER !!

    Caller: My phone automatically recognised this as spam/scam and did not allow call.

    Looks like this has made the spam/scam register.
    Reading the comments below, I'd suggest it is a scam to STEAL $10,000 allowed withdrawal from YOUR Super due to the Pandemic.
    That's why they want to know if you are over 58 years old. People over 58 can already access their super.as they have reached the preservation age and do not need to use the special access granted under COVID-19.
    BEWARE they COULD STEAL your ENTIRE SUPER if you give them details.

    Somebody reading from a script and speaking quite quickly. They claimed to be from 'Melbourne Advance' to find out how people are coping financially in the pandemic, and very quickly lanched into a question about my age. I said 'I'm sorry, I don't know who Melbourne Advance is, who is this?' And they said 'Ok, I'm sorry' and hung up.

    I think this is a variant on the property investment scam. I've been contacted before, and they want to know:
    - are you under 58
    - are you married
    - are you working full time
    - do you own your own home

    If you tick all the boxes, then either they want the information to try to suck you into a 'government scheme to generate wealth' via 'tax concessions', OR they want to sell that infomation to someone else to try to suck you into a scam.

    The scam is property investment - they hint at tax breaks available only if you buy property a certain way. Then they present a complete package: property, conveyancing, finances, everything done for you - plus, a ruinous fee on top of that at an extortionate interest rate.

    Investment is the use of money to generate more money. Spending money to get 'a tax concession' is not investment.

    Caller: Melanie of Melbourne Advance

    "Private" caller ID. Annoying automated recording.. presumably selling something. Like another commentator, I have also placed a curse on the caller. (On old Arab one "May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits". That should do the trick! (Only joking .... but yer never know!).
