Claimed to be neighborhood watch. Scam 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! 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. Neighborhood Watch scam
