another one of those police/fire internal magazine scams. not up front in what they want from you. smooth talking woman wanting personal details to sell you advertising This is a scam do not go along with it SMS from this number claiming a "final notice" hasn't been responded to. Gave a link ... I did not follow it Caller: Emergency service Magazine
Another Magazine scam. They say you have agreed to advertise with them without proof of purchase. They try guilt you saying they have already printed the magazine and request your address and other personal information so they can send you the publication. They call from several different numbers and will call multiple times a day. Avoid!!
It's not a scam, they do call genuine business owners for ads in the magazine, but as a new business owner starting up, I was unable to afford the payments for the ads to begin with.
I had to be very firm with many callers over a few months that I couldn't afford another ad.
SCAM. Have reported her to scamwatch ref: 579040 for anyone else wanting to report her. This is one of many multiple numbers she calls from claiming she's from multiple businesses getting donations, or copies of magazines. Caught her out because she cycled through our numerous free call office numbers using multiple different stories for each state and they all default to my mobile so she didn't realise she was speaking to the same person
Caller: Liz/Megan = Scammers
Claimed to be from Police, Fire and Emergency advertising agency at first then when further inquiries were made they claimed to be calling from Telstra.
Caller: Claimed to be emergency services
similar to others..
I was told that back in 2017 I agreed to take out an add in the digital publication. A tax deductible payment of $395 will be required.
tried to confirm email to send invoices & material to.
Caller: Megan ( Thats what she said her name was )
Called 20th November 2018 wanting to speak to the owner. Also mentioned the owner would know what she is calling about. Owner had no idea and definitely didn't agree to any type of advertising. SCAM.
very rude keeps calling saying she knows the general manager and will not give me any of her details Called our business phone number asking to speak with the owner, but would not say what its about - only "she'll know what I'm calling for" - didn't wish to leave a message and get the boss to call her back, would always say she would call back later. Definitely scam. THIS IS A SCAM!
I was told that back in August 17 I agreed to take out an add in the digital publication that comes out at end of November.
When I explained to the lady that I don’t recall ever having such a conversation she queried about the invoice of $395 which is fully tax deductible.
She went on to tell me that an add has been put aside on page 27 for my company and she wouldn’t be wasting anyones time calling me if I didn’t agree with the terms back in August.
Its a shame that we have con artists pretending to be a part of the MFB/CFA and Police.
This lot are a pack of thieves.
Still going on in October 2017. Getting them every week from different numbers. yep another scam magazine. Magazine advertising scam. Alleged agreement to sponsorship deal. Completely false. Very polished operation but exceedingly dodgy. They call and say you agreed to advertising months before and try confirming your email to send the invoice to.
