Research Company doing phone interviews about local government Caller: The so called "legitimate Research Company"
While they may be a "legitimate Research Company", Local Councils aren't useful and helpful.
As has been shown in the media, all of those Councils and related Local Government entities that have been investigated for cause, have been shown to be either incompetent and/or corrupt.
As for having a say, unless you agree with the current group think of the Bully class that owns and runs these Councils, then the last thing they tend to do, based on clear empirical evidence, over many decades, is to assist their local constituents for the good of all.
All Australian councils should be locally and regionally amalgamated, politicians and related Grievance Mongers and Carpet Baggers removed from the Management structure/Positions of authority and the trimmed down organisation should be given a clearly written set of tasks to return to their basic function.
A. Be responsible for economical Waste removal.
B. Fix your local Roads and related infrastructure in a cost effective manner.
C Be subject to random or ongoing audits of their Finances and Outcomes.
I don't care for, as most other Australians don't care for, for these predominantly corrupt and/or incompetent Kletopcrats enabling others in making excuses to waste time, resources and my forced ever increasing hard earned income to be deprived in the form of "payments" to these self serving grubs.
So, no, I don't welcome these rude self serving calls and neither should anybody else.
Research about local council which I had agreed to do previously Caller: ~rDisp4 (02) 4355 9760
The caller took long time to say hello, and when I asked where she was calling from, she told me couple of times but I couldn't comprehend. I asked what it was about and she just hung up.
Caller: My local council
Doing a survey for local council for people between 18-34 (I think). I had agreed for them to call me previously.
Caller: (02) 4355 9760
Calls about taking a survey. Claims I gave them my number which I never did. Blocked instantly.
Wanted to talk to people in specific age group. Told them I couldn't help. Company is a legitimate Research Company contracted by Local Government Councils. They conduct several different types of surveys but the main one is a community survey that asks for your importance and satisfaction of the various services and facilities provided by your local government. It is your chance to have a say on what is provided by your Council and to scorecard what they do for you in your local area. You are providing feedback on what happens in your local area Caller: Research company
Market research apparently my local council has asked them to conduct this research. What a spoof !
Caller: "Research company"
Doing a "reserach" on behalf of local council. Since when has the local council ever listened to me? Their offices are filled with little tinpot dictators who fob you off every time you want something from them in return for all the money you pay them in rates & taxes. Sack the lot, is what I say!
Did not answer, as I don’t know anyone in Wyong.
I don’t even believe it’s a genuine survey.
They are just seeking personal details, there is no proper reason for giving out info to unknown callers, ever!
I dont even reside in gosford. How they get my number.
Just get the job done..simple. If they cant figure out the problem them give it to someone that can do the job.
Local councils are the worst scums that twiddle their fingers. Lets do an audit to see how the spend rate payers money.
i didnt answer phone. sounds like a later call i answered due to waiting on a call. it appears to be a council survey. Caller: brain dead ass holes
A female said that a lot of government coronaviru investigation balabala and ask me to do some survey that will take 10 minutes. however, she told me she calling from private company. That is so ridiculous. so crap about research company blah blah blah I am on the "do not call" register but it obviously makes no difference. This is the third time this number has called. I never answer, but let it ring out. I then check it on this Reverse Directory. Here is a hint: if you get a call on your mobile from companies like this just tell them you are driving at present. They a legally bound to NOT continue the call, but must hang up immediately. Worth a try, eh! Spoof caller. Scammers Caller: Male voice, stated a name and purpose
The caller stated their name and purpose for the call. The caller failed to substantiate any truth. I advised the caller that I am not interested.
I like some of the previous comments "just send me money".
Missed a couple of calls from this number, after I had agreed to be called by the local council (signed up the day before the calls started). Seems legit based on other people saying it's a council thing.
