I answered and they Asked about online trading! Do yourself a favour and block the number ! I called back number (03) 9917 3100 rang once then gets disconnected automatically. Missed the call. They didn't bother to leave a msg, so I wasn't going to ring them back. Scam call - they have my name and don't give much detail Received call from this number today. Ignored. Number dropped out when I answered so I called back as I have clients in Melbourne (03). Recorded message said the number had been disconnected due to suspected or actual fraudulent activity! Phone detected spam Caller: (03) 9917 3100
Try to sell me blockbuster stock, should have listened 😭
asking me about online trading, but the line was so bad i couldn't even tell her off for calling me as im on the do not call list but it was just that bad i just stayed silent until they hung up ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Caller: Online Trading Company
I asked how they got my number, to be told "from one of your friends." When I said that my number is on the government Do not Call Register, so any unsolicited call--however they obtained it-- is illegal, she proceeded to tell me that I must have given them my number. I never do that other than to organisations registered by ASIC.
They use a random number generator to call, and once you answer they know it's an active number. BLOCKED.
Scam, claimed i was in online trading. Some thing about finances. They hung up before I could. Didn't speak well english. Called me by my Facebook profile name, not my actual name. I answered, there was a few seconds of silence, then they hung up just hung up - still trying something scam call so hung up Trying to get people to sign up to their special program for trading stocks. Got a call and the person started talking about needing to setup an alternate software. Didn't continue the call after hearing that part. Definite scam. Answered and were talking about finances in a non specific way. Scam call. thank you I've been hounded by the likes of these people for years now. I believe it's because I was once an Options and Futures trader. Blocking these numbers doesn't work because they simple use another number which your phone is unlikely to recognize.
I've found the only successful way is using a White List. It blocks any number not listed. Of course the problem here is you must remember to regularly up date the list with those whom you want to receive calls from. Swings and roundabouts I guess.
Asked how many shower heads to replace. Hung up after saying none... scam
