    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.
