Tech Support Scam.

Method: Vulnerable (incorrectly secured) websites, when attempting to download (say) a PDF, will produce a pop-up urging you to call 1300 856 527. Don't call it.

Owner of this number (manned in India) is uttered as MSIT Creations in Montana USA.

They want access to your computer and will attempt to get money from you for fixing a problem that does not exist. Do not allow them to access your computer.

At time of reporting, there is no web site and no way of hunting them down. If someone can add more PLEASE DO. They won't speak to me any more. Le Sigh.

Owner: MSIT Creations Montana USA (in India)

Please ignore this number... they will send you a message requesting an urgent call back only to be put through an answering machine.

I received a Text message from
+61 416 907 428
and with the message:
"Please call 1300133372 immediately to discuss an imporrtant matter. Quote ####### when you call. Thank you, Dun & Bradstreet."

The number was not a scam and does in fact belong to Dun & Bradstreet.

I'll admit I found this confusing because it does indeed look like a scam, I called someone from their company on 1300365553 which I found on their website. They confirmed the number was indeed on of theirs but a different department to his.

On calling the 1300133372 number I received an identical recording message telling me I had contacted Dun & Bradstreet and that the call would be recorded etc and then spoke to a guy named John who knew about my Centrelink dept

This is a scam. Do not give them any details. AGL knows nothing about this phone number.

Received a text message from ProbeGroup asking 'Tracy' to call 1300660522 and give them this reference number. I called up the number and explained to them this is not Tracy. They asked for my first name, the reference number, and the number I was calling on. After this, he reassured me I would be taken off this 'list'. Whether it will happen or not, I do not know. This isn't the first time I've been contacted by a scam/organisation/whatever looking for this 'Tracy'. I hope it's resolved now and is not a scam, I don't wish to take this further. Will post details of outcome.

My mum got a phone call for me at her house (I haven't lived there for over 10 years). They couldn't tell her anything about what it was regarding or even leave their name. I rang them back and was told i had a centrelink debt but couldn't tell me any specific details about it. When i thanked them and said i would ring centrelink straight away to see what this is all about their tactics turned straight to bullying and scare mongering. She said if i didn't hand over my credit card details or bank accounts or they would freeze bank accounts, garnish wages etc. Naturally i hung up and rang centrelink who assured me that these were empty threats. NEVER GIVE OUT PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THESE PEOPLE!

The "SCAM" name of the company is "BAYCORP". I talked to some Kiwi bird about a bill from Telstra that has to be paid, I am not even with Telstra!!    She threatened me with phone disconnection. Phone still rings after 6 weeks.

If you get a call, e-mail or sms claiming to be from Dun & Bradstreet (1300133372): IGNORE IT, DELETE IT.

Never give personal information away unless you trust that person.

Called back and chose option 1 "make a payment with a credit card" where I was advised I'd need an NCO biller code .... I think this is a debt collector. Might change my number lol

Example of Premium SMS from this company:

"OK! Reply YES to get ur results & U may WIN a DELL LAPTOP! MobileFun4Hours subscriptionHelp 1300886534 for $6.60/3days 2x$6.60 to join.Unsub:reply out."


If you can't read the fine print, and get scammed, expecting the telco to take responsibility means you are not taking responsibility for your own actions.

I've just got a call from the same number. Tried calling back, was on hold for longer than 5 seconds. I'm not patient, and figured that as I have no idea who is calling or in regards to what, that it is their responsibility to get hold of me, not vice versa.

Seeing this, yes, I think it's a scam. They didn't say what business they were from.

Hey Guys, i also thought this was a prank but after them persisting (and me not giving them any information) i rang D&B directly who confirmed i had an outstanding centrelink debt (2 years after i thought i had been done with centrelink)...

Called Centrelink and confirmed that this was true and that D&B automatically get the commonwealth debt sent through to them... Centrelink were happy to resend me all the letters this time to the correct address, and said i can pay directly to them and bypass D&B...

The number they gave me was also 1300 133 372...

If you think it is a scam.. it might be worth chasing it up or calling D&B directly from their website.

Hope that saves some people some heart aches!... :)

This is now by an organisation called GlobalOne Mobile Entertainment Pty Ltd. They seem to be linked with Mobile Embrace Limited which is on the ASX.

Yes these rude individuals call, offer nothing and want everything. Quite obtrustive. I have had my number for 2 years apparently they were chasing the previous registered owner of my number.

Their customer service leave a lot to be desired. Terrible

Just had a call from a Lady asking to discuss a 'sensitive personal matter' and wanted to confirm my personal details. Stating she was from D&B.. What a joke.. I gave her nothing.. but she already had a bit of information... scumbags... these guys make me so angry!.. How do they manage to get phone numbers and details like that and actually operate like this?... Surely the police would be able to track the number down?

They gave me 1300 133 372 also.... >:-(
