Hi everyone, how are you going with all the phone scammers calling all the time these days?
This week it's been:
- Australian Border Force (parcel waiting for me with illicit contents inside and a warrant issued for my arrest).
- Victorian Govt solar hot water rebate x 3
- Telstra technical support.x 2
- Amazon unauthorised charge x 2
I believe the solar hot water one is a scam because the call is clearly being routed from a dodgy call centre due to the response delay and fake local number. Surely the Victorian Government would not be using them. They are usually female and as soon as you say a few words that isn't music to their ears they just hang up.
The last one a few minutes ago just said to me, "You are a m*****f***** and a f****** f***er," and hung up because I simply asked, "Did you say Australian Border Force?" after his short initial intro.
I'm sure there's been others I've missed in the last few days because I've ignored a few calls with similar number prefixes.
Edit: My phone often also puts a small note to say "suspected spam caller" as they call.
