The same content as the one on 14/June 2013 happened to me on 3 July 2014.
A Christopher Duncan told me to get a Weston Union form and helped me to complete the form with some lawyer in India and to send $199 to that Lawyer.
I had no sent this $199. Waiting for Ducacn to call me back if he insists. Surely no one can be fooled so easily!

A girl Mava ? called from this number, I could not understand her accent, told me I was entittled to over $5000 refund from bank overcharges Ref FS068. She asked if I wanted a cheque or deposit into the bank account, I told her cheque because it seemed a bit off, and she told me a Richard Smith would be delivering the cheque to me.

These people called me yesterday and told me I will be retrieving $5000 from the government as I have been over charged in bank fees!!!
They gave me a number to quote RP202 and a guy called Richard Smith with come to my house with a cheque for the above amount and his ID number is 0712 and I have to pay him $199 which is for a overseas lawyer that the government uses!!!!
What a load of rubbish..... I call the police and filed a report and also called this number back to let them know that this is a scam and she said NO its not and hung up on me....

Caller name: "Alex Smith"

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

Caller (scammer) indicated that he was from the Australian Federal Government, "Reclaims Department". is name was "Alex Smith" and that I had been overcharged bank fees etc to the amount of $5,248 and asked how I would like to be paid. I suggested that cash would be fine, but he insisted I needed to call 02 8006 2393 and provide my Application Code Number (which he provided me), and that his boss ("Jacqueline Brown", apparently) would organise payment.

I received the same type of call today. Caller saying I was entitled to reimbursement of over charged hidden bank fees. He checked my name and address and asked how I would like the payment. I agreed on a cheque posted to my old address list in white pages. He asked me to confirm my D.O.B.
Very alimentary that I give him my D.O.B. before sending the cheque.
He quoted a range of banks and building societies which had been overcharging. I told him I didn't deal with any of them and ended the call.

I had a call today based exactly same content as above eg. was owed $5248. I gave my DOB and Bank (NO account details thank goodness). I contacted my bank as soon as I hung up and they said I will be fine with the little information I gave to the caller. I was also told to call the same number as above and speak to Jacqueline. Number rang out. Wish I hadn't given any information, don't know what they could do with DOB and your bank. They didn't ask for money to be sent to them

Caller name: Haddin

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

I wasa contaccted on the aaove number and I ascertained that the callers name was Haddin (obvioulsy not an Australian - probably Indian) who said the Government had a paymenbt of
$5,000.00 for me. It lacked sujbstance and I immediately suspected a scam (being a former SA Police detective and Military Police Major).
I called back and the phone was answered by a woman, again obvioulsy not Australlia. She said she would ring me back but this did not happen . They said that this was a Governme nt Department t involved in the "handout". I was asked how I wold like to be paid and played along saying "by cheque". I am higlhly suspicious of this call, supposedly from a "Governmen t" Department. It calls for investigation by pollice.

Caller name: sounded asian

Caller type: Political call

Stated from Australian Federal Government and I had been chosen to receive a refund of $5000 because I had been overcharged on my electricity and phone accounts. I had to ring 02 80062393 on tuesday speak to the dept manager and quote AT100. Kept insisting it was not a scam. I rang the number straight back and queried who they were, they kept saying Dept of Federal Govt, Reclaim expense dept.

Did a search on the phone number and came up with this site.
Have had a similar call before was from tax dept quoting refund of $6,500 the wanted my name, DOB and bank details..for refund, I suggested they just send a cheque and of course they hung up. Tey need to be stopped.

received a phone call from a man whose english i could barely understand. he told me to call 0280062393 and give application number BJ06. i did give my DOB thinking that wouldnt be an issue but wish i hadnt in case it can be used. i rang the number and got a woman whos english was even worse and said she was the manager. i ended up hanging up as she was taking ages and i started to freak out thinking the scam may have been in the return call being charged at a crazy high rate.

Male, indian accent. requested me by name, I was suspicious when he gave my title as Miss (I'm married) but with correct surname. said there was an overcharge on fees and that he has the paperwork to claim back. The amount is $5248.00 and to call back his manager on this number 0280062393 for them to write a cheque.

Caller name: Frank

Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

Received a call from "Frank" claiming that he needed to send me a refund of $5000 from the reclaiming department of the Australian Government. He told me to quote ref FS068 so that they would have clearance to send my check. I called the number back a few times and was hung up on repeatedly. I called my bank to explain what happened and since these people already had my name and address and I gave them my birthdate, mobile number and which bank I'm with, the security department at my bank said with this info it was possible for someone else to change the details of my phone banking.
About 20 minutes later, Frank called back, very upset that I hadn't called to claim my refund.

Just received a call from an Indian most likely, who explained that he was from the Federal government and I was selected to received a refund in excess of $500 for over payments. I immediately detected a scam and played along. Disturbingly though he knew my name and quoted my address when I asked for details of the refund to be mailed to me. He asked how I wanted to be paid, by cheque or direct deposit. I told him to send me a cheque. he wanted to give me a reference No. and wanted me to call his Manager. I never got those numbers as he wanted to confirm my DOB to ensure I was the right person. I told him that he contacted me so he should know if I was the right person. Then he thanked me and hung up.

the above phone number called my mother that she is owed $5248 by the 'RECLIAM DEPARTMENT OF THE AUSTRALIAN FEDERAL GOVERNEMENT' . I called the number back to clarify a few things to where these funds are coming from,as she could not understand the man on the other end very well, due to heavy Indian accent. He told my mother that he was the manager of the department. I asked him for a break down of these 'over charges' and he said I cant unless I pay $199 for an 'OFF SHORE' lawyer. I said thats not a problem to get a lawyer as I can represent this case myself very well. He than hung up obviously as its a scam. Please share, they are targeting the vulnerable.

called today 14/06/13 from a woman that sounded indian. Said I would be receiving a $5000 because the bank over charged me. Gave me a number to ring 0280069399 with the code AR115 to the manager Christopher Duncan. I new it was a a scam so I have not called the number. I would have to be with a bank for a very long time to have been over charged that much money. I just don't have enough money go through my bank for that to ever happen. Not without noticing anyway even if it was a little bit here and a little bit there.

Claimed to be from Federal Government, said I was owed over $7000 in overcharged bank fees. Confirmed address and dob. Was waiting for him to ask for bank details, and surprised he didn't. So they are still trying! 7/5/14
I was to call 02 80068235. So instead I googled Fed Govt bank fee scam, which quickly led me here!
