    This number has called a number of times, answered for the first time today. Australian male voice at the other end new my name. Said that he was calling from some Australian survey company and that I had recently answered a survey to win a laptop or iPhone which I said I had not. This particular survey today was for home loans which I said I did not have. He then politely thanked me and we hung up.

    Scam call
    Australia
    Caller: 0488 828 500

    I missed the call so I called straight back. An Australian woman answered immediately and knew my name. Told me she was from a company called VELOUR & I'd won a prize in a competition I'd entered through Coles/Bunnings/Woolworths and some others.
    Thought it was odd since they don't all have the same parent company so why would they run a competition together??
    Told her I didn't remember entering any competition and she replied, "it may have been some time ago" and as if she'd looked it up said "oh, yes it was January 10th". Curious, I continued with her.
    She told me that she had a few questions to see if I qualified and I'd win a laptop.
    She asked if I was between 30 & 55, then asked if I still had more than $150 000 in equity with my house. Now bored and sure it was a scam, I said no and amazingly I no longer qualified and the call was ended.
    What I found interesting was that there was back ground noise as though coming from a call centre and I have been receiving emails lately stating similar, some saying "we tried to call you"
    Hope this helps others avoid failing for this scam

    Caller: Scammer

    Called saying I had entered a competition in April and I had won. I said I don’t enter competitions and she said that it’s hard to sometimes remember due to our busy lives. I said that I don’t believe this as I don’t enter competitons and believe this was a scam call. I hung up and blocked call.

    Caller: A company called Belouis

    Australian man called from a mobile number several times. says I had won a laptop if I answer the following criteria but I get a "finance pack" as part of the deal. Says I entered a competition with all my details including a signature from Coles/internet/Aldi/Woolworths/Harvey Norman or Bunning or somewhere - which is something I would never do. Said I entered the competition on 31 mar 2018 - 18 months ago???? Said I had won a computer - if I meet the criteria, but couldnt tell me the brand of computer I had won, except it was green and white with 1 GB ram (wow). It will cost me nothing - if I meet the criteria - but I must sit down for 40 minutes for someone to explain a finace pack to me on how I could save money on my mortgage. Lots of "free" No obligations, cost you nothing, comments. Too good to be true? Heck yeh.

    Caller: Claimed to be from 'Velour'

    Australian lady claiming to be from a company called 'Velour', said I have possibly won a laptop by entering some competition via Coles/internet/Aldi/Woolworths that sort of thing. Knew my name and age and that I have a home loan. Started asking me about my home loan so I asked her for clarification on exactly how I entered this competition, she said I had bought a 'device' on a specific date and she could give me the IP address so I could 'check it back'. I said I didn't remember buying a device and hung up on me. This number had been calling me for a couple of weeks, this is the 3rd time I've answered, the other two I got dead air and hung up on. Dodgy AF.
