Caller: This is/was my number and it has been used by scammers. Please read.
My mobile number was spoofed by international scammers 13 June 2019 as revenge for me blocking their calls and your number could be next.
Due to a technical loophole, anyone's number can be used as a scammers Call ID to disguise their actual call number. If you were home they tried to scam you, if you weren't home, MY number was left as a missed call.
Sorry to the hundreds of people that were tricked into calling or messaging my number. I've had to cancel it and get a new one and I now have to manually update every friend, customer, business, government department etc. Over 250 amendments. This could happen to you and there's nothing we can do about it.
Caller: Some flog
Yep I got this one today. Call back says that the number cannot be reached.
I’m on the do not call register so I was expecting not to get these calls.
Sadly Jan is right - any call can be made from anywhere showing any caller ID that the calling party wishes to use.
Still using this number by thellooks of it:) 0429 434 688 is a missed call scam number This no. just rang, I don't answer unsolicited/unknown numbers any more.
The people making these calls are pest bstds and need legislating out of the
PRIVACY - what a f'n laugh. DNCReg - ditto.
Sorry to hear what happened to you Jan E, not fair is it !
Great! Now we can't even answer our phones for business anymore in this age of tech cowboys and hopeless local enforcement. When will Australia get it? We need more security in all these systems before it's too late. Too busy running around fixing the NBN. The number was calling and as soon as I answered, it hung up. I went to call back but it said that the phone was switched off or the number was disconnected I just had a call, and it went to voicemail. I listened, all I could hear was people talking in the background. Tried to ring back and get told this phone is switched off and cannot receive messages. I called back number 0429 434 688 rang once then gets disconnected automatically. That's very unfortunate, I'll definitely be more careful and will change my voice message recording, as I have put in a rude message to scammers to get f**ked
