BEWARE - Dun & Bradstreet / Milton Graham
To all reader, deal with HIGH CAUTION.
I have been receiving an SMS message by the name MiltnGraham (no numbers), the messages informs me Milton Graham (Previously known as Dun & Bradstreet) to contact 1300 224 131 and quote ref # as an urgent matter.
I also received missed phone call from a landline (02)9135 3755 with a robotic voice mail to call their 1300 224 131 and quote reference number.
I have made contact with them once, an operator answered although refuse to disclose any information until I have verified all my personal information...(Full Name, D.O.B and address). It is also important to note that never once have I ever received any correspondence from them referring to my first or surname. This raises many red flags in my books, additionally quoting a reference number "they" provided should be suffice let alone returning the call from the same number they tried to contact you on. If you google any of the numbers above or SMS, this will lead to many review noting "SCAM".
Scam and Harass
SCAM. It seems usually around the same time of year this company calls at whatever hour at least 4 times a week. It's overseas and they ask for your information. I have nothing outstanding and I think it's disgusting the innocent people they are probably scamming. Never give out your information people!
Really bad business they were trying to scam a payment when there was no debt owing called them 3 time to discuss but all three times they told me there was a debt.... i called the company that supposedly asked them for the collection and said my account was all in order and continue to use them. i would employ anyone who receives a bill from them to take it with a grain of salt. they could not say what i owed or where it came from????? great job another scam company
Left voice mail messages numerous times per day from different numbers. I've blocked them all but now getting text messages. They never use my name and know I don't owe anyone. I'm not going to call the scammers to give them my personal info. If I owed someone money, send me an itemised account. Sick of these scamming idiots!
Total Scam - block and do NOT respond
Do NOT respond to this scam company. They obtain mobile phone numbers and then try to assign unpaid accounts to people. They don’t give a damn whether the unpaid account is actually yours - they are just trying to find innocent people who get tricked into thinking that they mustn’t have paid a bill. They started texting me two years ago, so I blocked them. They rang me and when I answered they asked ME to confirm my details. I refused and asked THEM to explain what this was about. They REFUSED to tell me until I confirmed MY details. I let fly,...I told the very, very rude person on the phone what I thought of their scamming ways and told them I was reporting them and told them where they could go!!! So in answer to everyone, DO NOT give your details to them, block the text message numbers they try to reach you on. If they ring you, DO NOT give your details and demand to know what the matter is in relation to! When they refuse to tell you (which they will), tell them they are scammers and you are reporting them and let them have it (give them a mighty serve)!!!!
Not worth even 1 star!
Received a message for someone else. Have tried calling but after 15 minutes of hearing a boring voice telling me how important my call was, I was disconnected! Tried calling again and after 5 minutes, hung up. There is no email contact on their NZ website so stuff them. Got more important things to be doing. Don't even want to give a one star rating! Definitely wouldn't use for my company
Been getting voicemails 7-8 times a week for the last 2 months to call them about a debt
They have started messaging me now saying that I have a $1,400 Telstra bill and that if I pay within 5 days I can get a 40% discount funny thing is I have never used Telstra in my life!!!
Scam txt msg Milton Graham previously Dunn and Brad St
Received txt msg from Milton Graham asking me to ring regarding an important matter. Then they asked me to give them my name, Dob, address to confirm......
Without telling me what it was about. I said you rang me then tell me my details and I will confirm not the other way round... because then you are tricking me into giving you my information....
Annoying to say the least
Constantly calling and mailing me for a bill that was sent to medicare months ago. I've asked them to contact medicare regarding it and they've told me it's not their responsibility. Gave me an email they don't respond to and still keep calling even though I've informed them multiple times of the situation. Obviously a call centre in charge of it as you speak to indians and phillipinos every time.
Received a text message to a phone that I have held since 2015 - completely different name chasing debt collect for SA fines (Im not in nor never been in state). Called back the number with the reference - got an auto voice telling me hold time is 1 minutes....currently been 4 now.
Definitely a scam
I kept getting phone calls from a number my phone detected as potential fraud, so I didn't answer them. Then I started getting msgs from milton Graham (formerly Dunn and bradstreet) saying I'd been approved for a payment plan. I kept ignoring all of this. After 3 months, they finally sent a text saying I owed $2200 to Lumo Energy. I had to look up who they actually were! Connected to Red Energy. As I've never had an energy account in my name, and I had to google who they were I know it's definitely a scam. They may be a legitimate business, but from what that I've read they do scam money ot of people because they seem legit from their website and accessibility when you do an internet search.
Questions & Answers
Why are you sending emails to me for a man called BARRY ABLE for a debt. I know nothing about this matter have emailed phoned and only got rude Asians
I reckon they have found your email address somewhere connected to him even though you may not have heard of him or remember him.
They trawl through every document they can find.
They tracked down relatives my son had used as referees years before.
And as for rude, Asian or otherwise, how many times do you have to tell somebody the person they seek has died. They just keep reading the script.
When I lodged a formal complaint about being contacted again I was told they had amended their records.
Apology? Only when prompted.
How can I stop these harassing phone calls first it’s was a recorded message saying to contact them and now it’s texts and calls saying I owe money. I have never had a loan so I know it’s a scam they never leave a message with my name so if they were genuine surely they should know who they are requesting money from. I keep blocking number after number and they still call. I’m really sick of this harassment. After reading all these posts with the same problem Does anyone know how we can get these stopped?
