Scam call Insurance scam. Started by asking me for my full details, when I asked what for they said a car accident I was in, When I said I hadn't and I would report the number , they immediately hung up. Don't give your info to anyone! I had the time so I engaged with the caller. Went through the routine of having an accident then asked what type of phone I use. Lied as to type. Then asked me to open a app on my phone; no idea what he was talking about. Told him the app was open. He asked what I could see. I said, 'I tell what I can read. It says you are a low-life scammer and should be in jail.' Then a pause. Then he hung up. LOL Scam call. I normally don’t answer numbers not in my phone but am waiting on a phone call from someone so I answered it. Distinctive click and I hung up immediately. After that, got another scam SMS from 0481 270 283 saying “Important contact attempt: If submission is not received by 4:30 you will forfeit your submitted total-and transfer preferencesL https://wiry.site/mwd3zu”

Caller: Silent upon answering
19/7/21 - Silent on answering. Re-set my caller ID to "do not show ID", then called back. No dial tone and no response. Added this number to my "PEST" directory which blocks any future calls from the number. Best way to fix these SOBs. I hope their homes get infested by fleas.
Legal Assist Scam
I suggest calling the number back repeatedly and telling the person who answers that they are low life scum - they really appreciated it the 20 or so times I have done it so far ;)
"Legal Assist" or something. Scam Call - Do not give info I received a call from this number and as I didn't recognise the number I didn't answer the call. No voicemail was left. I have now blocked this number thanks to all who have made comments about this number. Thanks everyone. 0488 859 965 - Scam - beep then nothing, called several times over a few days Scam call. How has this scamming phone number been active for so long and the police done nothing about it? This number has been scamming for over a year by the looks of this! scam Caller: Pest
Wish these scammers would go neck, blocked.
Answered, only heard music playing. I have blocked the number now.
don't answer or call back typical scammer Caller: 0488 859 965
Indian sounding woman knows my family name...re accident claim. I get too many of these calls. I strung her along a bit with a tale of woe about my 'accident' got her to ring back next day which she did and I denied any knowledge of anyone by my family name and knew nothing of the phonecall....I hope I wasted her time enough to stop her from scamming some poor unsuspecting victim.
This is not a victimless crime....scamming destroys some people and I can't see anything proactive that's being done to flush it out and punish the grubs that do it. They only seem to react after some poor bastard has already lost their life savings....too little too late for some.
