Got a call, rang it back, telemarketer Got a call and cut it short when I realised it was Save Now, a telemarketing company. Three minutes later, I got a call from them again, this time a male, who told me my husband was having an affair with his wife, and that he needed to speak to my husband (whos name he did not know). I had him on speaker as I was feeding my baby, and before I could hang up, he said he was going to hunt my husband down and kill him, then find me, rape me (he used a different word), and then kill me. He then began whispering (I suspect someone was close by) that he would f&^K me up so bad before he killed me. He repeated it several times, how he would kill my husband and then me.
Caller said his name was Sebastian, his wife's name Carmella. He was of Middle Eastern Origin, going from his accent.
I have reported this call to the police, who are creating an incident report. If anyone knows how to get in touch with this company, an ABN, even a location (the phone number showed Ulladulla, but police suspect thats a number they bought to use from overseas), i would appreciate hearing about them.
Got a call from a company name 'SAVE NOW'. Saying about some survey on electricity and gas and see if I am eligible for discounts. He told me that he got my mobile from their marketing department. He asked questions like, who is my electricity and gas provider.
I told him off and hang up.
They call very day between 5 pm and 5.30 pm. Next day the same people different number. I want to know what Australian Company has allowed their marketing dept. / person to gain market share this way. Bloody fools. Received a call this morning from this number, didn't recognise it so didn't answer it.
Was a bit suspect about it and they didn't leave a message.
Searched number and here we all are.
Have blocked number on my phone.
Someone calling from 'Save Now' which they claimed was an energy broker. They asked about my electricity bill. Remained persistent even after I told them I couldn't help them. answered and went through the whole spiel, about how my area is eligible for savings on my electricity and gas.and how they will get someone else to call me with all of the savings now on my gas and electricity.
had already missed a number of calls from the number in the last week.
nothing more than a lady reading off a sheet of paper as she got very confused when i changed the subject.
run I couldn't understand her very well, I thought she said "sive now" but judging from the comments that's meant to be Save Now. Something about saving money on energy and checking if I can get discounts. Only my energy company can give me discounts so made no sense and she did not explain well at all. I asked her to remove my number. I should have asked how they got my number! Lady calling knew my name but not location. Said she called from Save Now and got my number from her department. Wanted to see if I qualified for a product. Hung up. This is my first Australian telemarketing call on my mobile. I really hope it will not become like the UK where I received several calls on a daily basis. apparently providing discounts for electricity from "Save Now", scam/marketing, blocked caller Company called "Save Now", said they could get me a discount on my electricity account. First question was "Do you have an electricity account?". Same thing happened to me Had missed call from this number - After the above posts, blocked number in my phone caught me off guard and accidentally gave her my postcode, name and email... what should i do? called my child's mobile - not cool Constantly call me... I don't answer as I don't want to hear people babble and talk sh*t in the phone... I hate telemarketers... How do you know she was Indian if you don't know what company she was from? I got annoyed of these people. They called me and when I asked them who are them, they just hung up the phone. dont answer telemarketing
