I called back number (08) 6370 4932 rang once then gets disconnected automatically. Obvious scam attempt. I live in Victoria and every call I receive with an (08) prefix is a scam attempt. I now don't bother to answer any calls with an (08) prefix any more and am none the worse for it. As it is a landline, the telcos should deal with this sort of nuisance. Definite scammer stating they want details on your recent accident. Had none though. I suggest you do what I do which is keep them talking for a few minutes then say: "I have been instructed to tell you that while you have been talking the Australia Federal Police have been tracing your call and you can expect a visit from the police very shortly". They hang up and do not call again. My usual strategy is to pick up the phone but stay silent. In my experience all 'suss' callers disconnect immediately.
Most active caller is "Private number" who happens to be Nicole from NBN. Sadly Nicole doesn't disconnect immediately...
Why can't the Telcos block these time wasters?
called last week said computer was infected,,told them I don'have computer,, cheeky little so&so's,, called today to ask if I wanted to buy computer.. I hung up scam hung up straight away Caller: No idea
I called back and they instantly disconnected. Didn’t even hear a ring
Unfortunately the female caller didn’t want to engage in conversation with my four year old granddaughter who ran to answer the phone so the caller was unable to scam us! Usual scammer protocol, unknown number, hangs up before end of outgoing message Another caller who did not leave a message. Another SCAMMER. Wanted to know if I was the owner of the computer or was it someone else. Obvious scam. Hung up. Caller: Scammers
Callers wanted to speak to the owner of the computer, I said I owned a computer. She then told me they had received error messages from my computer. I asked how they got my telephone number and she said they got it when I bought the computer. I responded with an incredulous "really?" and she hung up
Called and hung up tried to call back disconnected number obvious scam, with the 'click through' piggy-backing on another number... lucky my phone has caller blocking, just block them after they ring. (08) 6370 4932 Scam call re computer Indian calling "in regard to my computer". Asked her if she even knew my name and she hung up straight away. Obviously a scam Caller: VT Support ??
Scammer, I played dumb for a while "John" with Indian accent then put me on to his supervisor, who I politely asked was he the same person who scammed me a while back.....he hung up on me ??
I did not recognise the number so did I did not answer and let call go to answering machine. Caller hung up immediately. Scammer
