For all of those people receiving harassment and nuisance calls from the caller ID (02) 4220 2500. I can confirm that the number is associated with Park Trent Group of Companies. The number is the number for their switchboard. After receiving 5 calls from them in a 1hr period I was rather angry. The number I initially rang was Wollongong Office 39 Montague Street, North Wollongong NSW 2500, phone (02) 4253 2503. When the call centre answered I was polite and asked the girl to be put though to the manager. I was then connected to a Mr Danielle Brown and my first question to him "Is 4220 2500 your switchboard number?". When he confirmed that it was I then informed him that if I receive anymore phone calls from his organization I would have The Park Trent Group of Companies charged under the Telecommunications Act for harassment and nuisance phone calls. Since the Telecommunications Act 1997 is commonwealth, convictions under this Act is a Commonwealth Conviction.
Mr Brown also informed me that they "ParkTrent Group" get their eMarketing information from DataSolutions.
Hope this helps everyone out

ㅗㅗ my cats breath smells like cat food Thanks to all the nice people who replied here. These callers need the treatment they give us. Get a whistle. Blow it down the mouthpiece. Let us alone. Got a call this evening, about 6.30ish, I answered hello, and on the other end it sounded like a young female was talking to someone and then they hung up. Ummm, if they are trying to sell something, why hang up? b) who buys things from telemarketers anyway? Why is this even a business model in 2015? I had a call from (02) 4220 2500 3 times today all 20 min apart. I thought I would look it up and found this thread.
Thanks to this I blocked the number instead of calling it.
The "Get over it" postings appear to be coming from the same sort of idiots as those making these sorts of unsolicited cold calls.
The presumed entitlement to call and harass is both annoying and highly inappropriate,
There are likely a few hundred thousand people who would like to give you a good slap and a serious talking to, however you will likely be hiding out of reach behind your call button.
Don't be thinking you are in the clear however, karma will come and get you, you can be certain of that you wretched bottom feeding pests.
I have been phoned a few times and have called them back. The phone does not even ring ITS irratating It is Parktrent Properties trying to rip you off. I found this interesting bit online from ASIC.
"Property group Park Trent, in Hurstville, in Sydney’s south, was recently found to be unlawfully “persuading relatively unsophisticated investors of the virtues of using their superannuation accounts to purchase investment properties and to establish SMSFs”. Some of these 860 investors suffered financial losses as a consequence, ASIC said"

Have had many missed calls from this number over the last month. Finally answered, would love to know how they knew my name. I hung up on them & blocked this number!!! This is Park Trent, they lied to me about where they got my number, I'm on the do not call register and they still called. The above number keeps calling me, Im so pissed off. Im not into scammers . maybe I should drop in to these clowns and shove a phone up arse and then say ring me now cock. When they call simply answer the call and the just leave them hanging They called me three times and didnt leave a message at 522pm, 523pm and 540pm. I have repeatidly asked them not to call me! Just got called by them twice in 2 days-I now answer but don't speak Call on my mobile which hung up when I answered unknown
