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
$249.99 As above.
I rang back. Indian accent claimed to be eBay support. I called them a naughty name and wished them an ill end.
Telstra lift your game.
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. This is an overseas based scam, run by fraudsters. It is fake. I suggest you block the number. 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
Caller: (08) 7200 1045
They rang and said that somebody had used my phone number to set up another ebay account and that I needed to do something to stop payment of $250 for a giftcard by someone in China. He said he was from ebay and said he was working with ACCC and Au Federal Police. He was Indian, I could hear the voices in the call centre and he was so desperate and breathless in rushing me. He started instructing me to type in an address which I realised was a screen-sharing app and I hung up. DODGY AS!!!!
