Caller: Melbourne Advance?
Caller named Jasmine(with British accent) from Melbourne Advance(whatever that is)
Asking questions how you are coping financially with the pandemic..
And you can be in the draw to win $1500
1st question is, are you over or under 58?
I called back number (03) 9118 2048 rang once then gets disconnected automatically. annoying . reported and blocked number & placed a curse on caller. 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: Melbourne advance
question about the global pandemic and how it is affecting finances. Asked if I'm over or under 58.. obviously targeting under .I said over and they hung up.. will block them
Caller: Melbourne Advance
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.
Caller: "private number" but she says Melbourne Advance
What is wrong with our Government and Telecommunications companies (foreign owned) that they can't stop this crap. How did they get my mobile? Who sold it to them?
Caller: Melbourne advance
Every couple of weeks the robo-girl calls, so I just hang up, obviously a scam.
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.
'Jasmine' from Melbourne Advance - robo-call, this time called from a "No Caller ID" number - SCAM / BLOCK Caller: Unknown
Caller hung up. Thanks for your comments.
Caller: Bot recording
Bot recording re how victorians are coping with the global pandemic. Proceeded to first question without asking if interested. When i said I do not want to participate in the survey the phone line was cut off abruptly.
A recording that wants to find out about your views on the global pandemic This number tried to ring me and my phone ID states "potential fraud" and asked to block it. Caller: Melbourne Advance
I just got a call from Robo-Jasmine from Melbourne Advance from a private number again. I hung up immediately again. I don't know how many calls I've had from this crowd but it's a lot. I tried blocking private calls but found I was then blocking my doctor (phoning from a number other than the clinic's number), the real ATO needing to talk to me about my tax return and other important calls that I want to take, so blocking is not a solution for me. The Government needs to step in to deal with this. I know many elderly people who get frazzled by these sorts of calls.
I just got one too and hung up Caller: Private Number - Melbourne Advance
Received a call from a private number this afternoon. Same automated response as above with clear female Australian accent. Automation fails if you provide a follow up question.
Caller: Jasmine from Melbourne Advance
This same call has come from numerous different numbers; all of which I have blocked. Today the same call came from an unidentified number "no caller ID". Very annoying. It should be possible to stop this company!
They just dont give up ... Caller: Melbourne Advance
How do you get them to stop calling
