    Scam...

    Had a call this afternoon asking me if I would be.interested in short term high return investments "only offered to a select few"
    Knee it was some kind of scam and I could tell by the blokes accent that he was a Filipino (well educated mind you) as I have worked with a few well educated Filipinos and they speak good English with this distinctive but subtle American/Asian accent .
    What really concerns me is that somehow this bloke knew exactly what we (our business) have been paid by fonterra the past few months and when I asked him how he knew that he told me that the reason he contacted me was that fonterra gave his company the details of select farmers that could possibly be interested in his "investment opportunity"
    Fonterra would never give out information like that. I have let them know what's happened.
    It's obvious it was some attempt at a scam and I hung up on him in the end but what really puts the shits up me is how he knew that income information? Should I burn my computer?

    Most likely he or a mate of his work/contract for Fonterra and have access to some of their supplier/payments lists in some capacity. It is unlikely, particularly with his spiel about 'select farmers', that it's anything compromised on your end. He was just trying to make you feel special.

    I suspect this will be the sort of thing Fonterra would take very seriously.

    I suggest that if Fonterra don’t respond, put it in writing to them formally.

    It is actually their problem that commercially sensitive, confidential information about their contractor information has been disclosed/leaked to a 3rd party (your scammer)

    Ask for their reassurances they take this seriously and what they are doing to protect your personal information

    There’s privacy stuff implied there and I’d expect they’ll move their big dogs onto the matter; you just need to give them the information concisely, coherently, consequetively (what happened, when, what said etc) and questioningly

    You’re not complaining to Fonterra; this is a “hey this just happened and I need some reassurances from you guys”.

    Nah mate- he’s an amateur!!!!

    Even his wife barely shuddered.

    My neighbors get to listen when I get a scammer. I feel it’s my duty to ensure that their humiliation must be witnessed so that others are inspired to equally give these scammer-waste-of-life-liars their come uppance. A civic duty lol
