Chinese phone scam targets Australian numbers
A message claiming to be from the Chinese embassy has been targeting Australian phone numbers.
Neil Mitchell said he received a call from an unknown number which then left a message on his voicemail in Chinese.
3AW Mornings received a number of calls from listeners saying they too received the message.
Caller Garth said he received the message on Skype and the number had a Beijing area code.
Sheree then called and translated the message for Neil.
“It says it’s from the Chinese embassy,” she said.
“And you’ve got a very important document.”
