Who owns the Telephone Number 02 6264 1111?
Have you been called by this number?
02 6264 1111
It seems that some people have been called by a number that shows up as 02 6264 1111 on their screen.
If that number shows up, then it is very probably a scam.
Calls from that real number, or from the office that uses that number for incoming calls, always show up as a private or hidden number.
Scammers often manage to make real numbers appear on your phone, even though that is NOT the actual number calling you.
02 6264 1111 is a contact number for the Australian Department of Home Affairs, Immigration Programs Division.
PO Box 25 BELCONNEN ACT 2616 * Telephone (02) 6264 1111 • Facsimile (02) 6264 2747 * Website: www.immi.gov.au
If you get a call from this number, or any other number, and you are told to pay money, normally by gift cards etc., or the police will arrest you, it is a SCAM!
Do not pay!!
The Australian Immigration department do not work like that.
If you want them to end the call quickly, and leave you alone, just ask them to send the police to you, so you can sort it out with them.
A Police spokesperson has said that scams like this are not uncommon.
“This is a common scam used by overseas fraud offenders to scam gift cards from their victim”
“They disguise their number with that of an Australian number to falsely cause the victim into believing it is a genuine phone call.”
No government department is going to ask you to use gift cards to pay for any type of fine.
Scammers use gift cards so it cannot be traced back to them, as it would through credit cards or bank accounts.
If you feel that you have done something wrong, contact the relevant department yourself, and pay any correct fines to the correct people, NOT to a scammer.
