    Scam call
    Australia
    Caller: Karen

    I was given this number by someone called Karen who called me from (03) 6344 6931
    claiming to be with an Independent body called National Call Blocking so I called the 1800 and it was obviously an international call centre and I didn't pursue the call
    Seems like a scam to me

    Scam call
    Australia
    Caller: Avril Williams

    The caller used my last name, and said she was calling from the Do Not Call Register. She didn't immediately ask for any financial details, just to confirm my first name to prevent international callers from registering. She also didn't deny that I could do this online, she just said that international calls could only be blocked over the phone. It was suspicious because of her accent and the call quality, however she wasn't asking for financial details, yet - so I wasn't sure what she was trying to get out of me.

    It was a very convincing scam, because she knew my last name and gave me an Australian address and phone number when I expressed my concerns that THIS was a scam call. When I googled the address, it wasn't associated with any government department. When she gave me the phone number, I saw it listed here as a scam.

    Hi Jill - like you I got scammed. Mark claimed tag I would only be one off payment of $150 for life for machine. They already taken out the money from my bank account - I have cancelled my card so they can't take out any further money. I am goin yo report it to my local member who has the obligation to report it to government about my call block company scam. These employees are pushy and going to make sure something is done to make otter Australians not be scammed by these scumbags.

    Caller: Steven

    I had a call from Steven claiming to be from the Do Not Call Register and stated that my details needed to be updated for their new system which would block the telemarketers from overseas as well as in Australia. He was quite insistent on needing my middle initial and then asked for the expiry date of my credit card. That's when I hung up.

    Caller: Scam National Call Blocking Department

    "Peter Wilson" from National Call Blocking Department said he is listing me to stop receiving nuisance calls due to my recent complaint (which, coincidentally, I made to Telstra last week).... however, he had my name conpletely wrong & kept asking me how to spell my name. Said I'll call them back as I was busy and he gave me the 1800 875 447 number (but was calling from (03) 9853 3783)... they're obviously scammers trying a less pushy approach >:X

    Caller: Daniel Henderson

    Daniel Henderson from India called me. He was from the do not call registry and claimed for $229 he could send me via express post, a device that connects to my phone to stop any telemarketing/Scam telephone call. He was somewhat convincing. He claimed he got my details from Telstra, which i had consented they could pass on to certain companies. This is where i was certainly being conned. I've never been with Telstra nor agreed with Telstra to give my details away. Hung up on the nice chap.

    Cold call from Terrence claiming to be from the Do not call register wanting to give me a lifetime free of calls from telemarketers. He had my name & address and claimed to be calling from 821 Pacific Highway Chatswood. I asked for a phone number to ring back & he gave me this one. I didn't ring back because he asked for my first name & when I asked why he said he needed the details and was quite happy for me to ring the number and ask for Terrence. Bold?

    I asked for a number to call back and was given 1800 875 447. Very suspect, definitely a call center with classic pause.
