Charity spruiker. Blocked. Hung up not long after being answered Caller: (07) 4241 1312
I am sick of these scammers begging for charity - They should be locked up and the key thrown away
Scammer, another number reported to "Do Not Call Register" & blocked. They hung up as soon as I answered Nuisance - blocked If you get what you suspect is a scam call, here are some ploys to try
1. Pick up the phone and say "nay" which means "yes" in Greek. You can follow up with 2. if desired.
2. Pick up the phone and say "arpka narm kya hi" which means "what is your name?" in Hindi. Usually the caller will disconnect. If the caller happens to answer in Hindi, then say "habla usted espaniol" which means "do you speak Spanish?". Almost certainly they will disconnect.
3. If a first question is asked, such as "how are you" or indeed any question, say "the charge for an answer to the question is $100, and rises by $50 for each succeeding question. Please state your credit card details so payment can be transacted before the first answer".
I didnt know the number so not taken up. Caller sounded familiar and was wishing my family all the best, but I had muted the call. The caller obviously knew that they were unwanted. Hit the power button, goes to message bank & no message. Now blocked. No message Caller ID said call from CAIRNS
I did not answer
Came up as suspected scam didn't answer Rang me and hung up Didn't leave a message, have blocked this number
