Thank you to everyone who posted, I have 2 missed calls from this number, now I know to ignore them. The fact that these scum have decided to get their employees to write "no, not spam, it's all legit" reviews here (see notes from "Jason" of 22-Aug-2016 and "Stay at Home Mum" from 25-Aug-2016) cements these a***holes' place in the "block on sight" list.
Need more reasons? How about the fact that they were previously using numbers from (02) 6100 5360-(02) 6100 5369, then abandoned them and are now using (02) 6100 5390-(02) 6100 5399? I've no doubt when this range of numbers is universally blocked, they'll simply move to a different range with their VoIP provider.
It's spam... block it. Keeps calling me but I don't answer (check here first to see if it's legit or just spam...). They never leave a message. It comes up with the number and then under that it has Canberra ACT Saying ive entered a competition online to win a 500$ jbhifi gift pack never entered a competition online for that!!! Wanted to confirm details and do a survey scam!! It's like whack a mole. Blocked one number starting with 02 6100 53xx and another starts to ring nonstop!! claiming I entered a competition on bequick.com.au
never did. told them to take me off their list. were wanting to confirm my details and to go ahead witht that they were saying my details would be shared with other companies to give me more offers.. No thanks
ato scam. i phoned back for sh*ts and giggles and abused him I'm on the do not call register and they still call. Pissed off!! Not a scam! Received a call today, to confirm my entry into an online competition and gave me the opportunity to complete a lifestyle survey. Asked no personal details and had some great offers and giveaways. The overall experience good and the telemarketer was very polite. Three missed calls this morning, I have blocked the caller. I see that everyone is saying this number is a scam. I called the number back just in case and I entered a competition on Facebook and that's what it was all about. It was just simple questions with surveys. I'll say this number is safe to answer. They didn't ask any personal questions, they just asked if they're speaking to the person who entered the competition and confirmed my number and that was it. Bullsh*t! They indicated they were "Friends of Choice". Beware call centre and delay in answering This number called me 6 times in an hour while i was busy at work, finally answered the 6th call thinking it might have been an emergency with family only to have an Indian woman claim i entered to win a car. couldn't really understand her and knew I didn't enter anything so told her I was with the police and we were tracing her call to arrest them. I called the number after receiving a call. They said the number wasn't connected. Caller: AN IDIOT!
REALLY! its now compulsory for me do to search unknown #'s, that call - NEXT!!!!
