    I had this guy (Rob) hassle me for money last feb - to support NT Police Bluelight discos, I sent on to the local PD and they advised me not to give him any money - he is at it again - called last week and i recognised the voice and back story.. now he is saying that he is selling advertising packages within the NT Police Community and giving support to our local Police... I believe this is a scam! He is now using a different number too 1300 784 072

    Political call
    Caller: Re- I use to work there

    I use to work for these guys & every body that works there are commission based salesman who work out of a call centre in the Melbourne CBD.. all of us were paid 35% commission with no set wage or bonuses .. we were told to push hard no matter what & take no for an answer ... I had to leave because they implored my many drug addicts & convicted criminals including people who are convicted sex offenders selling for charities like kid smart who are supposed to protect the community !!! I had enough ... this 1 big scam as they don’t even print hard copies of the magazine. I felt guilty taking the hard earned money of those people that have paid this company.. so on behalf of every 1 at that company.. I’m deeply sorry for ripping you guys off . I suggest you donate to legitimate charities . I hope this helps guys

    Caller: Country Wide Austral

    They scammed us for two different 'advertisements' claiming to be on behalf of the police and ambulance. We then received non stop harassing fake invoices and emails from a plethora of different 'Charities' claiming to all be advertising and claiming that we had agreed! One tricked an employee into paying for an advertisement as they stated that they had received permission from another employee. There where then 3 different bank transactions with our card details from 'different' places! Seriously well sorted scammers. We've had to change all of our cards and thankfully our bank sorted out getting back the stolen funds.

    they called me 7 months ago asking if I would like to support the police welfare foundation, then again for street smart and again for soldier on. yes I'm a bit slow and thinking I'm doing good by the community agreed to all 3. In my defence I didn't think it was one company doing all this at the time. all of a sudden I have paid 7 invoices as I think I'm paying for the ones ive agreed to. even now I get phone calls from different numbers saying our proof is ready and they will deliver the magazine to us. complete scam. don't give them any money no matter what they say

    Someone saying he is Rob King from Victoria police called and asked for an add to be put in police magizine. Called me several times in the past. Sure Victoria Police do not call people asking for this sort of add. Hesitant to give me the tel number but later gave 99370200.
