I called back the number (02) 8015 6983 and reached vm that said I reached Brands of Choice Have received 6 calls since yesterday from (02) 6100 5369 , (02) 6181 1512 ,(02) 6188 5729 and (02) 8015 6983 have goggled all numbers all spam blocked all and don’t answer call These calls are relentless, both on my land line and mobile. DNC register seems to count for nothing... Blocking doesn't work as they use a different number every time (call centre auto dial). I don't understand how they can't be prosecuted, as what they are doing is harassment and invasion of privacy. Government needs to legislate against this type of marketing and also the "selling" of personal information to unrelated companies. Legislation must keep up with technology. Spam caller. Blocked the number Sick tired scammers ringing my mobile morning noon night....blocking does not work had enough I answered the call and left them talking to themselves
And I'm thinking they are using the DO NIT CALL REGISTER as their calling list
Caller: I don't care
What people need to know is that all these calls are aided and abetted by telstra ! They have an endless bank of numbers that these people are given access to, so they just have to make the call then telstra under their agreement just allocates one of this number bank to that call and another call will have another number bank number allocated to it , this is why if you do happen to call back the connection just cuts out because you are calling a non existent number ; and telstra should be ashamed of themselves for that " Profit Over Privacy! " shame on you Telstra! The only other hang up calls you will get "are" actual numbers their the ones that let it ring just once or twice then end the call, the idea behind this is to get you to call them wondering what they wanted and by doing so you have just given them two things they can now overcome the " Do Not Call Register " as you have now phoned them and they are just returning your call ( perfectly legal ) and secondly you have just let them know that yours is an active number so they can now sell it off to a mailing list along with any details about you they have .
SO if you don't know the number and they don't leave messages "BLOCK" the lot of them and tell everyone you know to do the same.
Legitimate callers will generally always leave some form of message for you.
And to finish my rant!
Shamefully enough most of these calls come from the one company that collects for most of the well known charities and for every $1 you donate only about 3 cents to a maximum of 8 cents from that $1 goes to that actual charity the rest goes into the pockets of these annoying " Thieves "
Thanks for your time!
PS:~ TELL EVERYONE !
annoying bastards Caller: Female with Indian accent
I get a call from various (02) numbers I block them each time but a new one each day! This number is just the latest one and I'm sick of it.
I rejected the call which sent it to my voicemail. (I don't have a massage saying hi it's (my name) sorry I missed you) yet somehow they know my name.. creepy..
don't answer this number, just a pit of sh*t, someone looking for personal information. Spam spam. same ones that have been calling for days. Leaves an unintelligible message with noisy background. I think this is the sixth call today. Get a whistle, next time they call answer then immediately blow the whistle as hard as you can. Calls over and over again from random numbers all seeming to be from same place - something to do with electricity. Damned annoying when they just keep calling changing numbers to get past being blocked. Why don't they get the message???? called me on (02) 8015 6983 and did not leave message - have had calls from many 02 numbers with same outcome - blocked all but they just keep ringing with different numbers Caller: Brands something....
Said I had entered an online competition. Asked them to remove my number from the calling lists
Caller: Brands of Choice
No matter how many numbers I block, the calls keep coming. It's endless and harassing.
This experience is ensuring that I will NEVER deal with a company associated. If I find a link to them, I will take my business elsewhere.
This is how NOT to market me.
Brands of Choice do not make it easy to opt out at all.
Caller: Brands of Choice
For all these numbers:
(02) 6100 5369 , (02) 6181 1512 ,(02) 6188 5729, (02) 8599 0156 and (02) 8015 6983
they are all Brands of Choice.
To stop them send an email to consumercare @ brandsofchoice.com.au ask them to unsubscribe and stop the harassment or you will contact the ACCC, Telecommunications ombudsman and your Federal politician. They will soon stop.
3 calls in 24h, should be reported!
