Similar to above, "The purchase you requested of $249.99 and the same will be debited from your account. If you did not place this order then call us on (03) 9005 6447 or press 1 to speak to a representative to cancel or get refund" Caller: (08) 7200 1045
Indian scammers claiming to be from EBay customer support. Let me tell you, I had fun. I flood called them over 500 times abusing them In slang insults. Reactions were priceless.
You will be debited an amount etc
I got this call today, why isn't someone stopping this practice. Caller: Ebay message
These calls need to be traced so that these scammers get locked up. They are annoying scumbags
Caller: (08) 7200 1045
Automated BS about EBay support.
Called back - sounds like an Indian call centre
scam, as all stated just wish telephone companies could stop them Caller: Unknown as didn’t pick up
Received a message talking about a debit of $249.99 will be coming out of my account.. obviously a scam as I checked my bank and nothing taken out or pending. I’m in Hobart and it came up as a South Australian number. Tried to call it back for some reverse phishing but it just said caller busy but then eventually rang and just rang out
Left message with the same info as the other complaints. Robot ....your account will be debited....dodgy Same as the others - you will be debited $249.99, unless you call back. I got the same call today in Tasmania from the same number in South Australia. Guy with heavy Indian accent says my eBay account is being hacked by someone in China, and I should call such and such a number and give my details to cancel the purchase. Since I don't have an eBay account, I said I can't be hacked. He hung up. Caller: A scammer that I identified thanks to this service.
Phone area code was South Australia.
Telstra voicemail deciphered this as:
"$249.99 and the same will be debited from your account.
If you had not placed an order. Can call us on 6139005"
Probably the same as other posters have posed:
"The purchase you requested of $249.99 and the same will be debited from your account. If you did not place this order then call us on (03) 9005 6447 or press 1 to speak to a representative to cancel or get refund"
You missed a call from (08) 7200 1045, who said "And $49.99 and the stand(?) will be debited from your account. If you had not placed the order. Can call us back at 61390056."
Recorded message, said, 'This is a recorded massage' (first clue that it wasn't genuine), went on to claim it was to do with eBay and confirming a $200+ payment of some sort. Don't answer! Caller: (08) 7200 1045
Didn't answer - second call today (first was a bit thick as they rang from a Private number so obviously was not going to have a return call to carry out the scam). Same MO - will deduct etc etc
Same as everyone else. Why can't we get these numbers shut down :/
Yes I got this automated recorded message about the $249.99 too. told that someone in China has bought a gift card for $249.99 on my ebay and that i need to log into a web address i give them to cancel the debit. Told them to email the address i have in ebay and i will address, apparently they can't give out my personal details to me hahahah scammers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
