If you are a Telstra landline customer & want to block nuisance calls like this one, you now have the option of buying a phone from the Telstra Shop that can do this. The phone itself costs $48 and is well worth the investment. Numbers you BLOCK will hear the following message; CALLS TO THIS NUMBER ARE BEING MONITORED BY TELSTRA GUARDIAN; THE PERSON YOU ARE TRYING TO CONTACT IS NOT ACCEPTING YOUR CALLS, SO PLEASE HANG UP.
People you place in your contacts list will get through as usual but anyone with a private / withheld number or a number that is not in your contacts list will hear this message; CALLS TO THIS NUMBER ARE BEING MONITORED BY TELSTRA GUARDIAN; PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND THEN PRESS # AND WE WILL CONNECT YOUR CALL. You will then have the option of either accepting or rejecting the call.
I think this number is a Charity, but seriously ringing on a Sunday! how bloody rude. :( Had a call this arvo. It was a call centre reminding us to start recording our radio listening for the GfK Radio Ratings Survey. I have an aerosol powered air horn near the phone for these nice people! They all wear headsets, and get an ear ache for their troubles!! Stooping to their level, but I really don't care any more.
Called at 4.30pm today a Sunday. Answers sounded like a bad recording /computer voice... voice jumpy and hardly legible..hung up on them. On do not call registet Was getting very annoyed by all the nuisance calls, up to 10 a day from telemarketing, surveys, holidays,charities, computer people from India etc, then I saw the comment from "Mark 23 July 2016". Took the advice and purchased the phone from Telstra WOW!! what a difference, my phone is now silent, have had no nuisance calls in a week. Thanks ....... Survey - very harassing. And they constantly breach legislation by calling outside of legal hours. Got a call from thos number... I answered saod hello about 10 times and then got hung up on.... grrrrrrr what is the point of calling?? Just stop it already!! I get these calls also, sometimes everyday morning or night. They hang up as soon as it gos to message bank. It is so annoying they just don't give up, even through I never pick up. :( I get calls from this number and also number (02) 8015 7630 just about every day, their also calling my mobile. I've stopped answering now. I'm all so on the do no call register, clearly that doesn't work like it's meant to. I didn't answer the phone in time, so the call wet to Message Bank, but no message.
The call was made at 8.04PM, is there no limit to these callers? I don't know who they are, but no doubt they will try again. Iy seems to be the way of these callers.
Has anyone else noticed that most of these calls are coming from the one group of telephone numbers, namely, 028XXXXXXX?
Claimed to be Commonwealth Bank Got a call at 1.30 on Sunday didn't answer and I am also on the no call register They rang 8pm thursday night. I didnt answer, and no message was left. Hope it doesn't continue I got a called from this number today despite being on the No Call Register and having a Private Number, I didn't Pick up. GRRRRR They are still calling when I'm on the "Do not call" register. Trying to have a Sunday sleep-in, hang up when I answer after they have rudely woken me up. This is called invasion of privacy & harassment. They are SERIAL PESTS. Thanks for that info Mark. It does smack of another money making enterprise for TELSTRA. We are registered on the, 'Do not call register', but this obviously means diddly squat & complaining makes no difference as, 'no-one' wants to or can do anything about them. Very frustrating indeed. scammers, don't speak to men and are rude to women when put off Had a call from this number just before noon.
I chose not to answer it.
Now, I'm happy that I made the right choice.
I blocked this number a while back, but they still persist.
