same here the do not call list is dodgy to it can be hav=cked into Received a phone call from this number and got a recorded message about winning $5000, hung up immediately. Also recently gave my number to a real estate and also used it at Caravan and Camping show in Sydney. Just had missed call from them, didn't answer it cause it was a randdomm number, Thanks for comments i was thinking bout calling back :) looks like amother scam number watch out so annoying! definitely wont be answering if they call again Phoned back and is a quiz competition scam Had a missed call from them a few minutes ago (was on silent but it was on my desk and had looked at the phone within the calling minute meaning maybe prank call no time to answer), for once I decided to google the number before calling back and found this site. Thanks saved me a wasted call on these losers! Thanks for the feedback. Missed a call from this random number. Glad I checked first! agreed, it's a scam Just got called 3 times - I don't know this number and I didn't call it back thanks to this page - thanks for your earlier comments ppl. Just got a call from them today on my mobile - thankfully I did not answer. No message left. Have put the no. in my contacts list as 'SCAM - DO NOT ANSWER'. Same, missed the call didn't call back after reading this page Seriously take a look at their website txtquiz.com (thanks Beck). This has been running for how long? No information about opting out on their site, even though, there was some rushed announcement regarding sending STOP to a particular number, which I did not get. If I receive a future call from this company, and my telco wants me to pay for it, what are my remedies. Further, take a look at the "prize" everybody is eligible for - a pair of passive 3D glasses, which "ONLY" costs $15 postage with valid credit card - Highly Suspicious behaviour. same as everyone else I got a call today and called the number back from a landline (from work which doesn't give out the number)... and then disconnected !!
Make sure you don't call them from your mobile number or you will get charged for the call. Thanks for this page !!!
these scam artists should get proper jobs! They played me a recorded message, then sent a text after I hung up. www.txtquiz.com
SCAM!!!! How DARE they call me and request that I opt out.
got the same annoying phone call thanks forthe heads up guys Called this number back and a recorded message says "Thanks for calling the Text Quiz Hotline, you could win $5000, text the word…". I hung up. I got a missed called from this number on 11 June 2011, around 13hs. The didn't leave any message. I wish they stopped doing this annoying thing...
