      Seems like another scam caller. Called me 4 times in the past 3 days. I tried ringing them back, as soon as I pick up it said please wait for the next available agent in a strange accent with music but I heard some shuffling in the background. Tried searching them all over the web and doesn't connect to any nz business

    Where does the information on telephone numbers come from?

    Tellows.co.nz accumulates new spam and scam numbers on a daily basis. However, the user is the greatest contributor of new numbers! Therewith, you provide the knowledge necessary to avoid being ripped off. Furthermore, the categorisation and analysis of the callers nature and, above all, your rating of the number will climax in the tellows score which will convey whether the caller is trustworthy or dubious. The greatest advantage lies in sharing all avaiable information on a fraudulent number and, thereby, warning the people of looming dangers before they even lift the receiver.

      Some automated voice message asking if I wanted English or Chinese, was probably asking for visa but irrelevant I was born in NZ. I didn't listen. Spam call.

    5. World Vision has been reported with number ‎098880629 as Trustworthy number

      3/21/24, 10:25 AM

      Got a call at 10am, picked up because it said it was in my country thought it would be a job calling me. I never expressed interest in World Vision. They’ll ask you a lot of questions about your personal life and family, then ask for donations. Lady was very sweet though.
