    Scam Call has been reported with number ‎099830799 as Aggressive advertising

    9/24/21 12:02 PM

    This number has been trying to get hold of me for two weeks. I finally answered. It was a polite professional sounding english girl claiming to be from Vodafone in Whangarei. She asked if I wanted to upgrade my plan to a $40 vodafone plan she is selling for only $25 a month if I would just provide her with my full name, drivers licence and credit card information. This deal is not available on the website and usually Vodafone would simply send out an automatic SMS message for their promotions. I asked why the number popped up on my phone as Potential Fraud. She said this was because she was calling from an automated number however the number is an ordinary landline. She didn't seem to know anything about me, my name or my current plan. I politely hung up and blocked her number. Very believable though unless you ask personal questions about your current plan and usage to catch them out.

    Hi! I work for a company called Unity4 & we are contracted by Vodafone to offer up deals to prepay customers. We don't have any of your info because when people sign up with prepay, you don't need to give private info - info is only necessary when you are signing up to a monthly plan. We are able to offer our $40 plan for $25 at the moment, but only to those on our calling list, hence why you wouldn't have been able to find us on the website etc. Hope this clears it up! This is definitely not a scam, you will find our number if you type "has vodafone called me" into the search bar on the vodafone website :) (09 9830799 - used by our sales team about new products or services. It’s an outbound number only so the best number to call us back on is our customer service centre number: 777 from mobile or 0800 800 021 from any phone.)
    Ashley replied 10/6/21 5:15 PM
    Just to add to that - we do not ask for your credit card details. But do need drivers license details for our credit check.

    I just got off the phone from this exact reason.. After talking to the lady offering an upgarde, i agreed to listen, i asked to be emailed all info before i agree.. The phone call got cut short, either she hung up or the call was dropped naturally.. The Number that called was 099830799 .. Alarm bells were ringing.. I had to contact my son asap for personal reasons, and my phone was saying " this number is not registered" ..
    I freaked out, rang the 0800 number for vodafone and was told i had to switch off my fone to reboot so the new plan will start.. which i did.. but i was angry they didnt tell me to do that in the first call, and also i didnt agree to them changing it as i was still to view the email???

    I was called by this number and didn't want to give my drivers license over the phone. I then called Vodafone and they said they do need ID for monthly plans. Conflicting opinions on here I found the Vodafone website that says the call is a sales call:

    I see there's mixed views in these comments as to whether this really is Vodafone... if it IS vodafone, then Vodafone clearly do not care about security, for they give no clear way to verify this.
    A kind sounding woman called me today - she sounded a LOT like the lady who says "welcome to Vodafone" on 777 and reads out the options - This actually made me partially suspicious to start with as I thought someone could be mimicking to entice belief it is Vodafone.

    And so I asked, how can you verify to me this is a vodafone number? They asked me to type a help website exactly as they stated - Again, this made me suspicious. So I instead went to Vodafones main site and clicked help myself (this should, in theory, direct me to where they want me to go if legit). But the lady on the phone insisted "No! You must type the address..."... So I hung up as this all rang alarm bells.

    VODAFONE... If this is legit, let customers get to the verification via your own website! Do not do a round-about way setting off all sorts of alarm bells. Surely Vodafone could have a consistent outbound number that comes up as 'Vodafone' given this is their services I am using....

    If this ain't Vodafone, then any one from Vodafone who happens to read this better get cracking down on that number impersonating y'all...

    100% scam. Staffers will claim to be from Vodafone and want to upgrade such and such etc - all lies. Block this number.

    If you go to the vodafone website, and type this number (with a space between 09 and the rest of the number), you will find that this is an official vodafone sales number and that you are incorrect and are creating some really uncomfortable conversations for Vodafone workers just doing their jobs by putting forth this kind of comment without first doing your research.

    Mary reported Vodafone with the number ‎+6499830799 as Trustworthy number

    Was a Vodafone call and they provided a great plan that I jumped.

    Some previous comments about the call being odd, different locations and the information they were asking. Possible scam. My call wasn't.
    As someone who's worked in a similar call center role but from home. The system generates a number that you have no control over. So employees from the south island, Hamilton etc when they Call you the number could come up as a Auckland area code.
    The questions accessing your file etc. It's all just a script with call safety and guide lines and targets involved that they follow, at times the caller may not even have complete access to a Vodafone file/account just more of the generic info not the complete details.

    But in saying that I'm super happy with my plan. It was usually 40 a month but the agent gave me 15 dollars off, no contract. Bonus for me wuhoo.

    Called and introduced themselves as Vodafone, calling to check in with their existing customers etc. Didn't provide their personal name. Asked if I was over 18 - weird as they would know that from my records! Then asked if I was happy with my plan etc., said yes. A few niceties and then hung up. Short and pointless call. Definitely were looking for a sale of some kind or to get some more information out of me... Don't trust this number...

    I got a call from a polite sounding kiwi girl. She asked about my pre-pay phone plan and she voluntarily gave me some incorrect details about my data usage.
    Very sure this is a scam caller.
    Also, the number registered as Whangarei but she claimed she was in Auckland.
