Caller: Centrelink SCAM
2368735465 is a Centrelink SCAM from the Central Republic of Africa. They tell you to expect a call from a Private number and to have all your personal information ready. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY DETAILS, including your email. You are also able to refuse giving any details over the phone for legitimate calls. Any information Centrelink needs can be requested through your online myGov/Centrelink account. If you’re still unsure, you can call Centrelink or pop in for a chat.
2368735465, when called, is a disconnected number appearing to originate from Central African Republic (ISO Code CF/CAF -Country Dialing Code 236)
I highly suspect this to be A SCAM, as per previous Anonymous entries, and suggest blocking the number or if called, DO NOT GIVE ANY INFO, INCLUDING ANSWERING WITH YOUR NAME.
I noticed that the text/SMS header was "Centrelink". and not the usual CENTRELINK (all upper case). This was my first suspicion and then in the body of the message there was no advice to check the MyGov inbox for further info! And the obvious, preparing you to give identity document info over an unsecured/unverifiable communication network. (Never asked by a government department, documents always requested in person or over a previously setup and identity vetted website ie MyGov.) The message reads "We will call you today from a private number, please answer this call. Please have your identification documents available for when we call. Do not reply by SMS".
I attempted to ring the originator of the SMS through my phone apps further info option and then blocked this number so I wouldn't be harassed.
What concerns me most is that they have my mobile number and I "am" a Centrelink recipient! Has anyone else received this message that is "not" a Centrelink recipient? If it is only being received by Centrelink recipients then it suggests that there is an internal leak from Department of Human Services themselves!!
received text message from "CENTRELINK", says " A Services Australia Service officer will call you today from a private number, please answer this call, Do not reply by SMS", a few minutes a call coming "no no caller ID", when I call back that "CENTRELINK" NO. the Actual no. is 2368735465, which cannot get through.
I had exactly the same experience as Anonymous Centrelink Recipient July 2, 2020. I am also concerned that there is some unauthorised connection with the real Centrelink. Caller: Centrelink?

It was a recorded message in a foreign language (possibly Chinese) with background music.
