    I got this message today from this number. Not sure if it’s a scam or real but I will be asking the police about it.

    This is a message on behalf of the police in your state or territory. The Social Research Centre will call you in the coming days to see if you can take part in an important study on safety and crime in your area. Reply '1' if you are 18+,'2' if you are under 18 or '3' to opt out.

    It’s definitely a scammer. I got the same message and I’m a lawyer and an Officer of the Court and these text messages are very very fake

    Clearly a scam. "This is a message on behalf of the police in your state or territory."

    The message can’t even correctly quote the police or cancer council of our state… no chance of the call or message being legitimate!

    received this text i did not respond, blocked and deleted. a few days later voice mail left from (03) 9492 6301 with a woman reading a message that her name was xxxxxx, which happens to be my name! and they are conducting a survey and will call back. Wow looking into it seems almost legit, but for them using my name. I am on do not call register. If this is actually legitimate its disgraceful.
