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 Spam caller. Blocked the number 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. Sick tired scammers ringing my mobile morning noon night....blocking does not work had enough annoying bastards 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 !
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
don't answer this number, just a pit of sh*t, someone looking for personal information. Spam 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..
Ring, I picked up but I didn’t make a single noise (not even hello), the other end stays for 26 secs and it cut off.
Make sure don’t answer “yes”, it will record your “yes” and process transaction on behalf of your voice ... say the bank.
Caller: No idea
I’ve been receiving these calls almost everyday over the past week and it’s doing my head in. I’ve blocked about 5 different 02 numbers claiming they’re from Sydney. I’ve answered one of the calls and it’s just pure silence so I hung up. There should be a feature that automatically blocks spam calls!!!
Just don’t answer these calls at all. I read somewhere else that if you answer they can put you on hold and you can be charged for the length of time you are on the line. This is the 4th call in less than 24hrs. Have blcked each different number they call on. They leep using a new one all seem to be brands choice. You think after this many calls they would realise I'm not going to buy anything from them or sign up to anything. Blocked, scammer Caller: lady voice
number stated 'Sydney'- delayed response in voice coming through. Female voice asked to speak to 'Jessica' so hung up - scam call VERY likely
Keeps ringing my son’s GPS tracking watch (which has a security feature blocking calls from non selected numbers).
Driving me NUTS.
Why ring an 8yr old Autistic kid’s tracking watch? Number has NEVER been given out to ANYONE.
agree These people don't give up, I made the mistake of registering my details to be a 'secret shopper' stupid I know and now they won't stop calling. I just block every single time and hope that eventually they get sick of trying.
