Claimed to be neighborhood watch. Scam AGAIN! targeting my very small home business for the second time. Luckily I have already experienced this call from this phone number so I really put him in his place and told him he should be disgusted in himself! He said the same crap about a police neighbourhood watch newletter, and I told him I've already been contacted by you scammers. He was very persistent that it is not a scam, and he understands why I would think that. DON'T BELIEVE THEM! The police would not be targeting a tiny business like mine to fund their ANYTHING. Had a call from this number and two others today where it rings once then hangs up. When you try to call back it disconnects as soon as the call is goes through. Rang Telstra as thought it was a problem with my phone! I was told that it was AFP - and wanting to publish an ad in a police journal and he will issue certificate and it will cost $350. Yes a girl called and said " mate we are bring out police journal " immediately I said I am not interested . Scam Claiming from Australian Police. It's a scam Caller: Someone claiming to be from SA Police
Claimed to be a Constable calling from Fullarton Police (there is no Fullarton Police station) requesting sponsorship money for a community magazine to raise awareness on drugs and crime.
Neighborhood watch scam. they have rung me several times on different mobile numbers every time. Caller: this dangus

Claimed to be from Police and was offering to advertise in a magazine to support the police.
yes I was told it was AFP - and wanting to publish an ad in a police journal out in july. said i would like info to be sent to me. Havent received any Claimed to be from the police and neighbourhood watch - quite vague. I say SCAM...... The caller claimed to be some kind of police association, but he didn't even identify his job title or give me his name. I think it's very unprofessional scam. Caller: Said police assoc - scam
Called asked if I’d support local neighbourhood watch when I asked where he got my details from he hung up
Caller: I dont know, said police association but I doubt it
Gets abusive if you do not agree to send money. I would say it is a scam
Caller: Neighbourhood / Victoria Police Scam
They have been calling me 6 times per day off a few similar mobile numbers starting with 0478 287 xxx
Sounded like a scam call to me. Asked if I 'was prepared to support our local police fight terrorism and the Ice epidemic and keep our community safe by taking out an ad in the magazine.' When I said 'no I wasn't' they were a bit taken back and then hung up. Rang the number back and it disconnects immidiatly. Originally thought it might be push polling for a political party but now thinks its just a straight out scam. I called back number 0478 287 016 rang once then gets disconnected automatically.
