The calls started again 16th Apr.and I have received 2 each day since. After 2 rings it
stops. St George & Westpac & 'Authorities'
should do something about these.It is annoying.
The number (02) 8019 9700 keeps on calling. I dont know who this is. Had this number ring me before I answered and said f*ck off then they hung up.this number has rang several times but I never answered but today I did I've been called every day for about 8 days so far no message. Also being called by another number as well. They call me on the mobile and hang up. They called today and eventually spoke! She said it was Sykes Finance re Westpac life insurance mail sent to me recently. She admitted that Sykes is owned by Westpac. Nuisance marketing!!!!! It's "Sykes"? australia. I was called in relation to "Westpac". I'm also part of the do not call register, so am lodging a formal complaint. don't answer unknown numbers, but this one was coming up daily for weeks. Haven't used old phone for 6 months, turned it back on yesterday to get a number and the bloody number is still calling me. Start of these calls coincided with me giving my number to one of those charity peeps with the clip boards that seem to be on every city corner these days, just to shut them the hell up at the time. If I find the mongrels I'll McSmack 'em with a dead dingo's donga....that's what I'll McDo! I have had the same number call me once or twice a day for over 2 weeks now.
Finally rang 1300 731 384 and got my number removed from there list!!!
I rang the number back (31/1//12) and an IVR said it was "Sykes Australia calling on behalf of Westpac Financial Services with special offers for you".... Call me at noon every day................How to get rid of it? Surely this can be reported to Telstra or Optus or whoever your phone company is - as a nuisance call. Just got a call, but it hung up after 3 rings. I called back anyway and got a voicemail saying that they are "Sykes calling with a promotion on behalf of Westpac, and will call me back later". I don't even bank with Westpac!!!! F**k off! The way places get silent numbers and why you can still receive calls even if you have registered on the Do Not Call register is mainly for one of the following 2 reasons:
1) The Do Not Call register does not work on marketing from companies you currently have products or services with, or their third party representatives. Within the legislation is the clause that allows them to pass this information along unless you have ticked the box and said I do not want to be contacted by associated third parties. Easy enough to do, just contact the companies you have products and services with and request to be taken off marketing lists. Takes up to about 6 weeks for the information to filter through but then you should be good. And of course for any new products you get make sure you tick the box.
2) The Do Not Call register only keeps your details for 6-12 months, so you need to keep renewing your registration. I have it in my phone calendar, every 6 months I go on and re-register and I haven't gotten calls from anyone in a long time.
Hope this helps everyone.
Yep. They are back and now claiming to be from Optus. Hi, if you go to their website it directs you to email them. You need to email the following address and include the phone number you would like removed.

I also recommend joining the do-not-call register.
I've been receiving calls from them and they claim to be from MLC life insurance. My bank sent me some info about it the other day and then I was called. Hubby experienced the same and we just told them we're not interested. If you don't answer the call they will just keep calling, usually around lunchtime. yeah this number keeps calling me to how the hell do i get them to take a long walk off a short peer, it absolutely sh*ts me. Currently saying they are calling on behalf of MLC for life insurance and that National Bank gave them our details..
Load of sh*t scammers
Not sure, why received call from this number!?
