Seriously if legislation was put in to permanently ban (or heavily fine to permit reinstatment) the international phone companies who facilitate these sort of scams by allow their customers entry to connect to the Australian networks with Australian ids this problem would go away really quickly.
So far been called repeatedly by the same scammers on:
(02) 6100 5368
(02) 6181 1511
(02) 6188 5928
Caller: Brand Choice
These people use many different numbers when calling and they all say they are from Brand Choice
Have had 3 calls from this and other similar numbers, all showing up as from Canberra, Australia. Have read comments from other contributors that these calls are scam and they are aggressive and persistent . Have blocked every number, but they come up with another to ring me. I don't answer any call from a number I don't recognise. If people want to talk to me & I miss their call, the can leave a message & 100% of the time, if it's telemarketing, charity or scam, a message is never left. Caller: I don’t know
Am getting tons of spam calls after entering my details on Smith’s Chips competition wheel on back of their packs! Not happy!
These idiots are pissing me off Caller: Brand of Choice
Scammers they keep calling on different numbers I hang up and keep blocking them

Calling every day and night. It shows on my phone as potential fraud, so I don't answer and block the number. Then I'm called the next day from a different number, but the phone displays the same fraud message. I don't trust them. Started calling me around the time I started receiving malicious spam SMS messages. Treat with caution. Caller: Brands of Choice
Like others have said they call from multiple numbers. Will call multiple times a day if you don’t answer. Very frustrating
Caller: (02) 6100 5368
They call in the middle of the night
Caller: Call centre
Having same issue as comments above they are relentless all hrs of the day n night including weekends and if don't answer call instantly on another number..May have 4 times in row at once
Checked this first before answering. Bloody painful these are I too keep getting calls from these numbers. Keep blocking them, but they keep changing their numbers. Caller: Brands of Choice
I have had several calls from several numbers -
(07) 3077 9398
(02) 6181 1511
(02) 6188 5928
(02) 3100 5368
i have blocked them all but they just keep calling from different extensions. I have reported them to the Do Not Call Register as i am registered with them. I have also now sent three emails directly to 'brands of choice' strongly suggesting they remove my number before I take it further.
I am unaware of where they have got my number from - I have not entered any competitions using my phone number. wondering if someone else has and they have entered a 'false' phone number which just happens to be mine? either way, NOT HAPPY JAN.
Very annoying calls. Called from different numbers day and night. Block them all!! Caller: Brands of Choice for CCI
Rang this number back and got a message. Some competition line.
They continually call all different numbers supposedly from Canberra but I’m getting sick and tired of these calls I get so many that I put my phone on silent so I don’t have to hear them call I had all these numbers call me plus these

Several calls to my mobile on any given day from this number. I never answer and I don't care if they call multitudes of times, not answering!!! Annoying! Repeatedly called from these numbers but no message left

Keep calling without message. Call back transfer to other phone?
