Caller: Unknown fake Queensland home equity company
Called asking for the wrong name and said I had won some fake home owners competition I had never entered then promptly proceeded to try and elicit financial details. Total scam, don't answer.
Caller: Belouis Group
Scam. They got my details from ‘Woolworths, Coles or Bunnings’ competition I apparently entered. Said I had won a google home mini and wanted arrange a time for someone to drop it off to my house and drop off a financial planning pack which they would need to stay and talk about for 30 minutes. Asked questions about financial status and how much equity we have on our home loan and said that they were asking to make sure we ‘still qualified for the prize’. Very shady.
Caller: Received a phone call from a woman saying that I had won a google home mini or laptop from a survey I completed,
its a scam don't fall for it hang up fast
Caller: Belouis or bellewis
They new my full name and number, same story about winning a bunnings voucher netflix or dan murphys voucher for a survey from 6 to 12months ago, and want to see if i qualify for the new one. They said i qualified for it as a home owner(im not) so they dont know your age or you financial status. I said i wasnt and they said no worries we will take you off the list. Same story new number 0488 812 586
A polite Australian sounding woman phoned saying I'd won a Bunnings voucher, Dan Murphy's voucher or a years supply of Netflix, she said I'd entered a competition on Facebook and had all my details.
Then they set up a zoom call to try to get your acct details and financial information. The guy on zoom was of African appearance. Do not give out your details.
Big RED FLAG.
Received a phone call from a woman saying that I had won a google home mini or laptop from a survey I completed, asked what survey it was and they said that it could have been a coles / shopping / bunnings survey (I have only done the coles surveys).
She then asked if I was a home owner (which I was until Sept 2019), which I am not at the moment, she said OK will take you off the list and hung up. Very suspicious.
I called back number 0488 828 442 it says the number I have dialed it not in service anymore. Caller: Bel Louis
Lady called me just now saying that as I was a home owner under the age of 56 I had somehow qualified for a whole bunch of their rubbish...
I asked how she got my number, didn't answer, said 'someone will call you again later today' and then hung up on me.
I've blocked the number.
Same experience as everyone above. They called and knew my address, name and asked for financial mortgage info. They then proceeded to tell me I’d won a $100 voucher and when is the best time for a Zoom meeting with them. Has anyone reported these people? Who do I report them to? I’ve blocked the number.
I read all this comments and thinking Belouis was a scam, I didn't go ahead with it, My Sister in Sydney also received a call, she booked the online presentation, and has received her 10 nights free holiday vouchers, and booked her first holiday 3 nights in central coast and nights were free, So there are a lot of comments on here I do not trust anymore.
New number = 0480 081 670

I received a Call from a very friendly Australian lady -
I got as far as giving information about our home loan, age of myself and setting time for the zoom meeting.
I will not be taking this meeting now. But I am concerned that I have already given too much information, not sure what they can do with the information provided.
Caller: 0480 081 583
Called by a polite woman with an Australian accent. She told me I'd won a competition from a recent survey I entered and was eligible for a $100 Bunnings gift voucher. She asked me if I was a home owner. I told her I don't remember entering a survey, which she said could have been up to 2 years ago. I told her I don't really do surveys like this and she (politely) told me she must have the wrong number and hung up. Pretty sketchy if you ask me!
Caller: 0480 079 463 Belouis
Received a call matching the description in all these comments, but from the number 0480 079 463 - Australia sounding woman, said from 'Belouis', offering voucher for Bunnings or Dan Murphy's, that i'd entered a survey sometime in the last year. Also mentioned the 'zoom call' to access the prize. Asked several questions about whether I owned my property, and what my income was - as I didn't 'qualify' according to the income, she said she'd 'take me off the list'. Super suspicious!
Thanks to everyone who have posted on here. This ‘company’ called my husband the other day and tried to lock us into a Zoom session for an hour tonight promising us $100 Dan Murphy’s voucher. Thought it all sounded sketchy and so put them off til later this week. Now won’t respond. Really appreciate everyone who had posted prior! Caller: Bellouis
Just received a call, nice older gentleman, same as other comments, qualified for a new iphone, netflix for a year, Bunnings voucher blah blah. New my first and last name, age range and my address from 4 years ago (unsure what they are tapping into then!) When i asked to repeat the business name and spelling, i was luckily at work and started googling, think he heard the keys typing and quickly thanked me for my time and hung up. Sounded like they just wanted me to say the word Yes a number of times, very suspect!
She said hi its Amanda calling from Belouis and knew my name. I asked who is Belouis and she hung up.
Had this number call me so I called them back they say I won vouchers Then ask if I was a Home owner I said yes and then they hung up on me
