If a telemarketer offers to list your phone number on the Do Not Call Register for a fee, you’re being scammed.
According to ACMA, there has been over 30 complaints from consumers around this latest scam in the past month.
In a release, ACMA chairman, Chris Chapman, said consumers should not provide any personal identification or financial details to telemarketers making these calls.
"The Do Not Call Register is a free service provided by the Australian Government," he said.
"If you receive a call from someone offering to list your number on the Do Not Call Register for a fee, we recommend you get as much information as possible from the caller and lodge a complaint with us by calling 1300 792 958 or by logging on to www.donotcall.gov.au."
Free registrations to the Do Not Call Register last for five years.
