Just had a call same me with a women Indian Voice asking for Tona. I ask who is Tona & hung up. The call was from the local Sydney land line. Can tell it is some sort of scam or telemarketing call, when they ramble on. Wondering how they receive the number, when you have registered for a DO NOT CALL service from the government website. Gee the government cannot do anything about this at all, even after you have registered for a DO NOT CALL services. STOP SCAMING PEOPLE WITH YOUR NUISANCE CALL NO ONE IS INTERESTED & GET YOUR GRIP RIGHT, WHEN THEY SAY NO. YOU EVEN ASK THE CALLER DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE WORD NO MEAN? THEY AUTOMATICALLY HUNG UP ON YOU. won either a range rover or $125,000 cash by entering a competition online. I hung up, scam I will never do an online survey again. There are several numbers that these people use, and most of them are coming up on my phone as Potential Fraud, which I don't answer. They are
(02) 6100 5365, (02) 6188 5925, (02) 6181 1508, (02) 8073 0574, (02) 6100 5365 and
(02) 8015 6979. They never leave a voice message, which to me says DODGY!!
scam Received a call from this number this morning. Said i won something in a competition and wants me to do a telephone survey. Suspected it to be a scam or something. So i just politely asked the caller to call me back later in the day as i am busy. This allows me to google the number and not wasted the chance of really having won something :) They are called Brand Choice some competition thing. Scam Scam Scam Caller: Don’t know
Missed call. Apparently coming from Canberra. Didn’t leave message, can’t be important.
Spam Caller: 1 male
- received a call in my mobile.
- announced I have won some kind of lottery.
- Disconnected me in seconds, didn't call back.
They rang me, asked to confirm my name matched their database and hung up upon confirmation.
Caller: Brands of Choice
Telemarketer asking if I want to enter a comp to win $125k or a range rover by completing a short survey
Caller: Brands of Choice
Said I'd recently entered some comp. She said I had the opportunity to win either a Range Rover or $125k cash if I wanted to do a survey. It's the middle of my work day!
I received a call and the lady mentioned that I have won a brand new Range Rover worth $120,000. I told them that I am busy and will call them back.
Couple of hrs later I called them back and the phone was ringing and going to message bank. Didn't leave any message.
Caller: Brand Of Choice CCI - purchased data from Lead Generation Company
Callers work for 'Brand of Choice' following a script and lying about entering a competition to win iphone/cash/holiday. Spoke to a supervisor who confirmed my details had been purchased, all of my details were 7+ years old. Made supervisor give me business name, details, ABN and then his name and job title within the call centre; after which I made them confirm he had deleted my data from the system and was not to call back again.
I returned a missed call and it was someone saying I entered a competition, which I didn't. Told them to remove my number but we will see if that happens. telemarketing call They called yesterday and today but left no message. Assume it is a scam from this thread. XD This is how the Australian Government works in the line of business, and "Fair Trade" from the most legitimate and professional grade of business, to the most shady line of business. The whole regime's legislative guidelines are so loose, and "free reign" to the extent of such ridiculous, inconsistent business like that. It's just the way it is here.
Expect consumers to be "The man's" b**** in Socialism. From business white noise, to inflated trade. From personal experience, I feel this place doesn't give a f*** about consumers. Everything is in favor of parliament, and business.
Like it's any different around the world anyway either when it comes down to it, every place f***s you in the a** in one way or another but from what I feel; that's how it is here, complete degradation towards consumers. "Wealth for toil" right, whatever that is; it's such a broad and vague term. The price you pay for freedom.
Received a call from this number and did not answer as they did not leave a message. They proceeded to text me to say I had to claim a prize asking for a name other than my own. I have since received 4 other SPAM calls at the same time every day. So annoying! Called and left no voicemail. Says its from Canberra (i'm in Vic so never get calls outside)
