dreamsfree I posted somewhere a few days ago about this , had need to call my carrier on another matter & also mentioned this as I had them on 3 of my comping only phones , he said there are a lot of dubious marketing companies out there that handle comp calls in particular but was not allowed to say which 1 , was to ring him back late Friday to find out how he went in trying to trace the origin of the call , It was slightly different in that it was a sleasy type message & cost $4.75 to me for them to send but did not know this till the 2nd one .I ignored the 1st then got another , tried to use my mobile to contact customer care only to find all my credit had been used with these too , so called on the home ph then when I went to retrieve the No to give him both messages had dissapeared , that was a little scarey , like they knew I was attempting to report it .Must ring tomorrow & get to the bottom of it , was going to cost me another $4.75 to stop it .

Hah, I did get a call from 02 8404 2215. It rang half a time and then hung up.
Finally checked up on it and got that same over-excited dude telling me I'd won something worth at LEAST $40. And I could call the Winner's Hotline for ONLY $2.75 a minute. ONLY! Charge me to find out what I'VE WON.
Needless to say, didn't reply. But good to find this thread, admit I was curious to know what the prize might be. :)

Think I can add another number to the list

02-84042203

Only rang quick so would say it's a scam number. Not going to ring it back. Also this was my old mobile which I hardly enter any comps on.

These guys don't let up do they! :mad:

Just found my number missed today is on this list.
posted 6-6-2006 @ 02:16 AM www


Hubby and mine's mobile phones rang at the exact same time, only half a ring once on each, from 0284042215. Neither of us called back. Then a few days later the exact same thing happened. Couldn't see how both phones could ring in sync at the same time from the same number and for only half a ring each unless it was some sort of scam. I think someone else mentioned they had received a call from this number too.
Thanks to whoever thought of starting this thread. Sometimes it is easy to let excitement of a possible win override caution. So far I have been able to match 4 missed call numbers to numbers on these lists. It has saved me time but more importantly $$$ (which I can spend on ligitimate comps). Thanks again

O/T Scam number list

I know there is the official scam number list, but received this email today, and was shocked at cost of calls, is it accurate?


if you get a missed call from one of the following numbers, don't call it back.
if you do, you will be charged $50 as it is an internet number...it says you have won $40 and to call another number....then you will get slapped with another $50 amount.

Has anyone else been getting calls from a 'private number' and answering, but there being nothing on the other end? I have had quite a few over the last week and I'm not sure what the story is.
