Caller: superannuation scam
They claim to be from the government to do an "obligation free" check on superannuation.
Caller: 'Super Information Team' Broadbeach Queensland
Called me and I didn't answer. Changed to no caller ID and called back 6 times.
Each time a different Indian person answered, each clearly reading a script.
"Hello, I am (English name) calling from 'Super Information Team'."
They then asked me my age, specifically being interested in whether I was 26-58. When I asked for their website they gave me a fake website (www.superinfoaustralia.com.au), told me they were located in Broadbeach Queensland, and told me that the company had been running for 5 years.
Caller: Candy (i think that is the name she used) from Super Information Team
Just received a call from 0488 814 609 advising they were from the Super Information Team. She advised that the Australian Government had recently made changes to Insurance attached to "inactive superannuation schemes" and they could be cancelled. She offered to help me if I answer 4 questions. I told her i was not interested and hung up.

Received several calls from "*English name* from the Australian Government's Super Information Team". They begin by asking if my super has been impacted by "the recent changes". When I ask for clarification on the changes to which they are referring, they cannot offer a reply. They also ask if I'm aged between 26-58.
Caller: Super scam
Started talking about super. Sounds like an Indian call centre. They call every day on diverse numbers that have same beginning 0488 85X XXX.
Super Information Team. Yeah nah, 2 staged attack. First call is confirm you answer and some dummy questions. They will try to dig deeper and get more information the second time on their second call. Old mate did not sound interested and was reading a script.
Called back and they addressed me by first name
Caller: Super Info Group
Same story as above. Called and asked to have my name and number removed.
Asked who gave them my thumber - was a third party supplier - I asked who they were, they said they didn't have the information to hand.
Asked what Minister made the policy announcement around potential changes to super insurances - didn't know.

Caller: 0488 815 501 - Super Information Team
Got a call today where the guy introduced that he is from something Super and about how some government changes are affecting my Super. I asked again who they were an the guy replied that he is from Super Information Team and had 3 simple questions to ask. the first was are you still employed.. I ended up saying `I don't want to talk to you` and cancelled the call.
Caller: Super Info Team
They call repeatedly on different mobile numbers, even late at night, never leave a message. I phoned one mobile number back and went straight to a call centre where they immediately knew my name and launched into a spiel about changes to super and insurance and they want to ask questions and claimed to be able to track lost super. It was most likely a Philippine's call centre. I felt suspicious it was a scam and asked for an ABN, surprisingly one was supplied ABN 66 644 605 363 - company is registered from September 2020 (a new company). I explained they were calling on a business number and there had been at least 18 calls from one of their mobiles (not counting their 2nd mobile) and this was not OK by me and could they take my number off their call list please. The lady was alarmed and said they would place me on the Do Not Call List. Definitely does not feel clear, especially the way they repeatedly call and try to rush you through a spiel to get info from you. Even if it is not a legitimate scam the pressure and amount of calls is not OK (and absolutely not professional). She tried to justify saying they were not asking for money so I questioned how that could be as they are a private company (PTY LTD), and they have to make money, i.e., as they are not a government service? Very nervous about that question. As per everyone's comments here, something feels off and dodgy.
Caller: superinformation team
Each time a different mobile number and different person. First two started with 0488 then a different third number.Second person even offer ABN number. offer obligation free assistance so we dont lose insurance for super. Called my super fund, they checked the site and ABN, thinks this is spam.

0488 814 709 Don't believe scam calls
Caller: "Super Information Team"
Everyone's best mate Ren from Super Information Team who rang looking for someone else. When I said it was a wrong number, he apologised but then launched into his spiel about Super access.
I gave him ALL the wrong information. Wrong state, completely wrong name that when using first initial - last name would be F. You. Proceeded to put on a little act. Decided I'd play the part of someone incredibly stressed, depressed and suicidal. Good times.
I am a ex employee in SUPER INFORMATION TEAM and its a total scam. We gonna ask 3 quick questions and then try to get some informations. Caller: some dude called ren
Could not tell me where he got my personal information from, anyone who is concerned lodge a complaint with the ACCC and OAIC. These organizations triage their actions by volume so don't sit on this, send a complaint in now and stop this before it starts.

They called on my private number, they were going to record the call, i asked for more details on them, She said go to the website, I asked for a contact phone number, She said go to the website and have a nice day and hung up.
Caller: Super Information Team
Second time they called me and this time from 0488 813 777 (I hung up the first time).
She said her name was Jamaica and tried to ask me the same questions as mentioned above. I've had enough of these dodgy scammers who constantly call people fishing for bites from the vulnerable. Just don't trust anyone and treat everyone as guilty until you can prove them innocent! They'll soon give up. Till they call you again next week!
Caller: claim to be "super info team"
Total scam trying to get your personal info - pretending it's about super but they can't even explain what the "changed super policy" is that they are referring to.
