I receive a call from this number almost every weekday & its been going on for over a month now.
The funny thing is they are calling my WORK PHONE??? Not my mobile, a work landline?? Bizaare.
When I answer there is nobody there, no sound, & disconnects after about 3 secs...

Hi, someone always calling me from this phone number. Even if I answered I could hear people talking in the background and no one says anything. They calling me every day, which is very annoying.

Keep receiving a call every single day for weeks now, very annoying. I never answer and they never leave a message. I don't know if I do answer if I could get my name taken off the list anyway??

Keep receiving annoying calls from this company claiming to be Westpac. I have also had 12 missed calls from the same number.

When I call it back an answer machine tells you to call a 13*** number to stop the calls that isn't even Westpac!

Had a call from this number this morning. First time for me, seems like many of you have had multiple calls. No one actually spoke, all i could hear was breathting.
Many of you are saying the caller identifies themselves as calling on behalf of WESTPAC. I wonder how many of you actually bank with WESTPAC i dont i sure DON'T

A family member answered but they hung up as soon as they answered. I will keep you informed as I have emailed sykesAUSfinancialservices@sykes.com and asked them to remove me from their calling list. I used a junk email account and I will inform you if I start getting any spam also.

The calls are so frequent. In the last month, I have received calls from this number at these times:
04/02/14 17:29
31/01/14 16:45
30/01/14 15:01
24/01/14 11:47
17/01/14 18:16
15/01/14 11:28

Since this number is so frequent, I added it in my phone as "DO NOT ANSWER".

Had a missed call from this number today, tried to call back but recording said all circuits are busy now, thought it could be st george chasing payment but that has already been done so don't know why this number would be calling me now, glad I didn't pick up after seeing comments from other people who have been annoyed by this number, very dodgy

Been getting calls from this number too, but i don't answer, interesting that so many people have reported it!

I think there are a few numbers like this, we need more public awareness about these sort of scams.

Got a call from this number , asking for my details and confirmation of where I live... I said if you wet from St George you would already know that and I am not giving you any other details... She persisted in saying she was from St George bank about my business accounts... I said I am not telling you nothing ... Called and reported to fraud but they said it has to be reported to the police ....

got a call this evening from this number. The caller caimed to be from the bank of Melbourne and that she was calling to make a special offer, but could I first confirm (ie tell her) my name, address and date of birth. Hey, I don't think so. Watch out - sounds like scammers or ID theives.

Been getting multiple missed calls from this number, I picked up once and they hung up. Very annoying. Googled the phone number. Saw someone on facebook found out it was an outsourced marketing company called Sykes on behalf of Westpac. The person complained on Westpac's FB page and this was their response:

Westpac:
Hi ###, thanks for your question. Sykes rings on behalf of Westpac with offers from Westpac. The operator should identify themselves as ringing from Sykes on behalf of Westpac. Sykes does abide by Westpac's privacy policy. If you'd rather not receive marketing calls, please send us a private message with your full name, contact number and post code and we can remove for you. Spencer

Two months ago I was getting a call a day at exactly the same time of day each time (5pm) and when I answered no one was there. I rang the number back after a week of this and the number was identified to me as Westpac. The female I spoke to said they must have just missed me every time I answered the phone and coincidently hung up right at the same time. I said I didn't think so, they were using machines to ring, and I expressed my annoyance. I said they had to immediately stop calling me, I wanted nothing they had to offer, and the calls have not returned.

The number could have only been obtained they rang upon from a Baltic crime group currently under investigation using an American call centre. They only phone 2 minutes and use dodgey emails. Ask you to deposit funds to either Western Union or Iremit. They steal funds electronically using a victim to transfer stolen funds as either a dating scam a UN scam or other. Fund's are stolen during uni semester break. They even pretend to be your bank fraud unit. Break onto bank as cleaner security whatever using phone's fax share price security, its their reverse sting paranoia which sounds so plausible. The steal photos off Facebook. They're not the real deal. Most banks have a policy of not working back after hour's. They usetwo other numbers too.

This number consistently calls my phone and does not answer when I answer the call, probably an automated dial out on multiple lines so the call never actually reaches me because some other poor Joe has to deal with it...how annoying and the number is now blocked in my phone...good riddence

Caller said that they were calling from St George to offer me a "special deal" on life insurance policy, and started to ask for highly sensitive information, including account number.

Called the number back, says they are from Sykes working on behalf of Westpac, and provided the actual Sykes number 1300 731 384, to discontinue similar calls and promotions.

I called St George, and they noted that it did not sound legitimate.

Although, here is the "official" policy regarding Syke's services on behalf of Westpac: https://info.westpac.com.au/lifetimeprotect/assets/pdf/190149_FSG9_Online.pdf
