    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 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.

    Survey - very harassing. And they constantly breach legislation by calling outside of legal hours.

    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 .......

    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?

    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.

    They left what sounded like a very accidental voice msg.
    It sounded like at least two young woman, one saying "okay what do I do? What do I do?" as though they were playing a game in the background, something about "beating this level", I don't think they realised it was recording, weird

    I've been getting calls from the same number. Something wrong with the brains of those who organise a business that constantly calls when their calls are unwanted, unsolicited, and unwelcome.

    This caller and many others in the 028016xxxx range is TKW Market Research Group. No matter how many times I hang up, don't answer or block the numbers they call from, they just won't stop. Being on the Do Not Call register makes no difference - market researchers are exempt. I've left a complaint on their website but don't hold out much hope that this will stop the nuisance calls.

    Had a call from this number at 8:20 pm, claiming to be a health survey. Not interested in their invasive and often dodgy survey questions. Give us a break!!!!
