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 returned this missed number and got a voicemail with the same voice as the voicemail on this missed call 0478 287 016 - I have blocked Caller: CWA ( country wide austral )
Had a call from a young man today from this phone number. Told me that he required money from my business as we are required to make a contribution to a police calendar. Basically told me that I had no choice and that I must contribute.
These people are essentially extorting money From small businesses they get the phone numbers from Instagram and Facebook if you are silly enough to have your phone number on there.
I’ve contacted the police and the police have advised that they have no connection with the above-mentioned company.

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

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.
