Auckland’s Anti Fraud Department

Just had a call from someone claiming to be from the “Anti Fraud Department in Auckland” and they are concerned that we are getting lots of telemarketing calls.
 
“Have you been involved in any fraud or scams?”
 
I couldn’t quite bring myself to play along so the call was short – she hung up on me. Obvious ESL and VOIP. Would love to hear from anyone else getting one of these.

  1. Hi there,
    I got a call on mobile from a lady claiming to be from the Recovery Dept and she has lots of our personal information and when asked her to contact by post, she got quite angry.
    Her phone number is 098011370.

  2. Yes same here. It was an Indian accent male. Saying they were from the anti-fraud Recovery Department level 1 21 Queen St Auckland. He told me they had money recovered for me which they were holding. I replied that he could be anyone and how was I to know he was legitimate. He then turned it around and claimed that I was not who I said I was claiming to be. I hadn’t said who I was at that stage. He then hung up. Obviously a scam.

  3. I just had a call a male indian accent and claiming that i happen to be having some money taken away from my account and i dont know about it.So I ask why they didn’t let the police know so they (police) can contact me and let me know.But he jept saying things that a delivery kady will bring the money just tell them the address.Phome number private….scam buggers

  4. Just also had a call from a private number..an indian woman claiming to be from the anti fraud department advising me she was calling due to the number of spam or fraudulent calls i had recently received; however when i asked her to confirm the name of the government department that she was with she hung up on me. Wish i could track these #4@!’s down!

  5. Just had a call as well from an Indian sounding male. Same thing saying he was from the fraud recovery dept from nz govt. He asked if all the telemarketers calling had cheated me out of money but I have a private number and don’t get calls. I hung up.
