Possible Scam: call about home owners that work

By podfink 12 October 2006 25

Possible scam: I just got called on my mobile by a woman with an oz accent claiming to be from “accelerate solutions”.

She started by saying that she wasn’t selling anything, her company was contacting home owners that also work and asked if that was me. Like an idiot I said “yes”. She hung up. Has anyone else got a call from this mob?

What’s Your opinion?

We just got a call from Accelerate Solutions this morning, and I found this post on the Internet through a Google search after.

Again, woman with an Aussie accent (said her name was Kim) , saying she had an offer for people who work full time, and did that apply to anyone in our home? I told her well, Kim, that’s none of your business and you can take us off your calling list. She said “No problem DARLING” – I think she was looking for Mr. Evil.

They might possibly be putting together an identity theft having already been through your mail.

I do believe I recieved one of these specific phone calls from that woman – the potential scam. Never got to the point where she hung up though – my dad did that nice and promptly once he got the phone. Is there anything beyond checking the place out so they can rob it that such a phone call would accomplish for a scammer?

>Telstra are shit.

No, I won’t stand for that. If you’re talking about the firm, then you’d say “Telstra IS shit”.

I placed my name on the do not call register at:
