I had a call from this number stating that I had money owing to the ATO and I was in big trouble. I terminated the call i have an air horn now. everytime they ring they get an earful. Calls every day same time and than hangs up, please have you not got something better to do ? Get a life !!!! This number was used by www.mycharitysurvey.com which tries to get around the do not call register by claiming to be a charity call and therefore exempt from the act. The reality is that they are a brand owned by QDL, located at Unit 701 7th Floor Tung Ning Building, 125-127 Connaught Road Central, Sheung Wan Hong Kong, with Registration Certificate No. : 53059688-000-10-10-8. QDL is the sole owner of information collected from these companies. They collect information through their call to see if you are interested in donating to specific charities and then contact the charitites to collect for them and take a share of the money they receive. As they are a private company, they are in breach of the Do Not Call Register act in Australia. Unsolicited call. Calls very regularly. Used to give a story about owing money to the ATO and that I was going to be arrested.
I don't answer numbers I do not recognise. Given that this caller calls so regularly, I may have to start answering because I recognise it! :) Annoying
If you have an ANDROID phone this is what I do: I paid for a small app called "Extreme Call Blocker" and you can set it up so that AFTER every incoming call you can either Block or Allow the calls next time. You can even have it DURING the call to block them. I have it set to AFTER the call. I have it set so that ALL Private Numbers automatically Hang Up and No Voicemail either! I can manually block any number so that they no longer get through. Hopefully that helps. I have tried lots of these apps, and most do not work. I have Android 6 the latest and this app works perfectly. It is worth buying for a few dollars a good investment. Download it from the Play Store. I am not sure about Mac or Windows phones. I know they have the Android Version at least. Enjoy! This number drives me crazy. Can we claim mental illness compensation from these annoying numbers I never pickup on a number that shows as private or is unknown to me. Keep ringing scumbags! Just block it...it's a scumbag company trying to basically cheat and rip off decent people....very obvious from the lengthy connection delay at Time Of answering this call that it was coming in from overseas and not Australia....despite the caller ID...number being displayed . hung up as soon as I answered they ring constantly the moment we got a home line - different story every time . u can tell its a scammer just by the connection is crackly This number is a scam caller. A few months back they were leaving messages that they were from the ATO and that I owed money and that they would issue an arrest warrant If I didn't ring back and arrange a payment to them . Today they rang again but I picked up the phone before it went to the answering machine and they hung up on answering without any dial tone. Would be great if these ratbags could be caught and prosecuted. MY CHARITY.COM
Very annoying. Answered once and asked not to be called again but they keep trying. Just hang up on them
called 2 days in a row hung up on answering no dial tone when called back. assume its some kind of scam caller I received a call from this number and it was a hang up. Unable to call back. I received one saying THEY owed me money!! For sure - hung up. Sent number to ATO scam page. They have called two days in a row now each call went to message bank they did not leave a message. I have tried calling back but there is no ring tone when I do. Seeing all of these comments I won't bother trying again nor will I answer if they do call when I am home. This number should be reported to the ATO for follow up with the police 5pm Monday. Went to answering machine, thought she was talking to me, Indian female voice saying she was from something survey.com. Similar time call to wife's mobile from 8077-0275 left no message. Spam call
