Caller: she said it was about my electricy bill
it is about time these scammers stopped making these type of calls
When I answered the phone the caller hung up Useless call and the caller didn't speak so I just hung up! A scam for sure ! Hung up when I answered the call - call was my work place not private number. I rang the number and it went straight to voicemail saying not available and leave a short 10sec message..... I didn't pickup unrecognised number. Caller hung up before voicemail activated. Presume it was scammer wanting me to call back and get charged by them by the minute for my call. Common scam. Another scam artist. Rang asking for someone with a different name, had this number 10 years. Asked where they got the name from, just hung up on me. Had this prick before. They change from Telstra to Electoral Commission to Electricity and Gas usual thing - phone rings - long wait until caller starts talking - lots of 'call centre' noise in background - caller doesn't mention who they walk for - claim to not be selling anything (then how do they make their money?????) - claim to want to get you the best electricity package - want to get a consultant to call you back within 48 hrs - I mentioned I was on the do not call register - they hung up quickly after that!

Different providers will have something similar, one would hope.
They are still at it. I had yet another call from this number today and no one spoke when I answered. I rang back and it said this number is not connected. I am fed up with unsolicited calls. Am going to contact the Communications Ombudsman, but not sure that will help. No message left, not wasting my money on calling back. I'm glad I have an answering machine to screen my calls, otherwise, I'd be spending all day having to put up with these nuisance calls. agree with previous comments - on the Do not Call register but still get dozens of calls, all scams.

What if we all tried to scam the people of India there'd be out rage
how can we block those calls Been getting calls daily from this number - rings, no-one there when you answer it. Whatever happened to that useless Do Not Call register? Was it scuttled by Clive Palmer? just had a lady from india trying to talk to me about electricity over pricing on my bill and i just kept asking her for her number to ring her back after i spoke to my provider she didin't like it kept telling me she couldn't give me her number after about 3 or 4 times she said sorry and hung up. sooo sick of these people No message left but from other comments another scam call. Totally fed up with this rubbesh. Can't even answer the phone without expecting it to be a hoax call these day. Just receive this number. The guy spoke in Indian accent. I hanged up the phone and didn't answer anything. looked up my known mobile contacts - not them, so looked at reverse australia. The only started this scam number yesterday. Australians are so sick of this international harassment. If I want to price electricity or any other service I will research. This takes away our freedom of choice and needs to be stopped.
