some guy asking about police neighborhood watch i said i wasn't interested in it and he hung up quickly Caller: 0478 285 747
Got called by this number twice in three days. Guy claimed his name was Andrew Clarke from the Police Association of NSW and he was calling to ask for donations to the association as they had a big campaign coming up in the area.
I told him no both times and contacted the Police Association to make sure it was a hoax. This was their reply: "The Police Association NEVER makes cold calls to members or the community asking for donations. We’ve passed on this information to a staff member to investigate further. In the interim, we advise you to block the phone number and DO NOT provide any banking details."
Scammer selling advertising space in fictitious magazine "Police Neighbourhood Watch". Reported on www.scamwatch.gov.au and blocked. Young guy asking for the owner of my business & demanding donations. Hang up & block! Caller: 0478 285 747
Just got a call from "Police Neighborhood Watch" very insistent he wanted to speak to the business owner. Clearly a scam.

Just got a scam call from this number - a young guy stating he was from the Police Neighbourhood Watch, and asking for my business name, wanting money, when I told him it wasn't me he hung up straight away.
Caller: A young Aussie male
Had this same call about a year ago and again today, called asking about my business and wanting me to donate $600 towards the neighbourhood watch, I said money was tight and he told me I can get most of it back on tax blah blah blah, told me I would be buying adds in the paper to support the local community
Just got a call from this number pretending to be from Neighbourhood Watch asking for the business owner. Stated that this was a house not a business, she thanked me for my time and promptly hung up. Scam for sure. 100% scam. a younger girl just called me and asked if I was interested in purchasing advertising in a police and youth services magazine, I told her I was not, and she said why not, is it financial? to which i said, i've said no, so thats the end of it. and hung up. dodgy. i got the calls from this number and said they are neighbours watch asked me that am I a business owner and try to get a dominate for the kid campaign for $345. I asked to email me the details informations about the campaign but she doesn’t. Then they also keep calling me by this number and many different numbers as well. So frustrating! Had a couple of calls from this number today that hung up after one ring. Unable to return call as line disconnects as soon as it goes through. Rang Telstra as hand 3 different numbers do this to me today so thought it was a fault my end. I run a business so was worried I was missing calls. No just scammers!!!! SPAM & SCAN! Just called me; I didn’t answer, but decided to research the number, and see 8 scam posts above! Number has now been blocked!!! Caller: Older sounding Aussie lady
Trying to scam money for advertising in neighbourhood watch magazines.
Called talking about a big campaign they have coming up. I mentioned I was quite busy and he hung up Caller: Steven and couldn't figure out where he called from
He asked me if I was in charge of my business name and then responded yes, asked if he's caught me at a bad time and I said, no its ok and then he hung up.
I tried calling the number back and went to voicemail
They convinced me to give them $385 for an advertisement in their neighbourhood watch news letter. I verbally agreed but When I searched their number it came up with 95% scam rating. They continue to bill me yet they have never received my business logo. Scammers!! Be careful !!
Caller: Someone from Police Neighbourhood Watch
Same thing: asked me about my business and if I wanted to “get behind” a campaign next year.
When they asked me what my name was after they had called me, I lost confidence.
