    My parents had exactly the same issue. They received a recorded message with same reference number. When I rang the number there was no answer or message.Clearly a sack.

    My experience was similar to most of the above. Received recorded message with same app. no. - 080456. I phoned the number and was answered immediately by a male with an Indian accent. I was surprised at how quickly the call was answered because Centrelink usually take ages to answer. I was asked for the number and provided it. there was nothing said for about 30 seconds so I asked what was going on and asked if he really was from Centrelink and that it was strange that my usual contact with Centrelink was by email. At this point he told me to "f--- off then" and hung up. Obviously a scam.

    I have received a recorded phone call today 14/6/2018 from someone stating that Centrelink has sent me forms and letters. I have never received these forms and letters. they went on to say that their lines are open from 10 until 6 Canberra time. They quoted application number080456. I had a feeling that this is a scam and I rang the number back after hours of course there was no answer and no recording either. Telstra should be able to trace this number.

    received message on machine claiming to be from centrelink - that repeated letters had been sent and as result of non response file moved to canberra. When I queried the legitimacy of the call and asked the identity of the person they were trying to contact I was advised "you will pay for this". At this point I hung up

    I have just received a robot call, same phone number and same reference number 080456. Luckily I googled it first before wasting my time calling, however, at the same time I was trying to access my mygov account, to see if there was info from centrelink and "website unavailable at this time" - is this a coincidence?

    Much the same here.

    The thing is that I have just been through the mill with Centrelink for mu mother and there actually has been a change in pension/aged care allowance, so I thought it was legitimate.

    In my case, I also had the same application number, but when I called, first, I got through almost straight away. Then before I could give any information the receiver hung up.

    Anyhow, something to be of. Absolute mongrels, no matter who they are.

    I missed a call from this number yesterday and an electronic message was left saying that Centrelink had been trying unsuccessfully to contact me about monies owed to me and would I please call back with ref #: 080456. I have tried calling back numerous times and the phone rang out so I thought I would type the phone number into google search and here I am now reporting the same scam as thousands of other people. When will this stuff stop?????

    I received this call yesterday afternoon . As I missed the call there was a recorded message with what everyone has written . I think I was suspect after trying numerous times to contact me by post or phone . I checked my Centrelink on line and there were no messages sent . So I looked the number up and here I am . Thankyou for feedback

    Received the same call from this number claiming to be calling from Centrelink and provided reference number of 080456, definitely a scam given everyone is getting the same number.

    Received a missed call on my mobile the message stated they were from Centrelink and had been trying to contact me by various methods. When I call the phone number provided I was hung up on, called again they hung up. Called a third time and asked the person on the other end why he had hung up he replied ' I don't want to talk to you, disregard message it was meant for someone else.'

    Pretending to be centrelink left a voice message on the home phone telling me to call centrelink head office on 0290991773 about back pay and said my case number is 080456.
    Man did not sound Australian when I called back and asked for my name and age which centrelink never asks like that. Knew it was a scam then told him I knew he was a scammer and I'm reporting him and he swore at me saying f*** off and f*** you b**ch
