every week for the past couple of months I have been getting calls from this number.....same time ,same day each week....they do not leave a message ,and I don't answer the phone ....but it is still annoying!!!!! (02) 8719 3690
Regularly calls, I normally say "Hold on Just transferring you to Steve"
After 20-30 secs, I check "are you still there?"
and as soon as they reply and start to talk I cut them off and say "Hang on transferring you now"
After a minute or so, I ask them if they are interested in buying persian carpets at around 10% of their value from bankrupt stock, and as soon as they say yes, or ask anything about them, I hang up as they start talking.
I often then get a few calls back, and each time say "hang on, be right with you", and leave phone on speaker phone while I continue my work.
My best hang on time so far is 5mins 30 secs.
Fun with phone pests - lol !!
regularly receiving calls no message and hang ups when I call follow up comment, call them directly 1800 801 647 and press 5 in the options, simply ask them to surpress your number took me 2 minutes Are calling me after I bought my partner a subscription to 4WD Monthly. Started ringing my number recently. Same as above, they ring, I answer, sound like a pocket dial, I hang up.
Started after subscribing to 4WD action magazine.
Call and hang up most annoying. How do they ever sell anything. Or are their call centre staff paid by the number of calls initiated not by the number of successful calls? How annoying is this mob! As soon as I answer they hang up - you hear them do it. What sort of a marketing scheme is this when all they do is annoy the hell out of the potential customer, without even bothering to sell anything. I have a subscription to a caravan magazine from Express Media but I won't renew because of this.
Once they did actually try to sell me a renewal subsription but my existing subs didn't expire for nearly 2 years. SHONKY!!
3 or 4 Phone calls a Day when answering no response and drops out after 20 seconds
denying me the opp to respond more or less politely.
Thank you so much. I have left a message on Megan's answering machine with a definite message, but very polite. Hopefully this lady will be professional about this and erase our listing. Good Answer however I like to get their CEO private Phone so i can retaliate! Do to Them as they do to me Does anybody know what Company is hiding behind the Nr (02) 8719 3690 and who the principals are would appreciate same information What a bunch of tossers that Nr (02) 8719 3690
Samebody should place size 18 up their backside
THEY ARE A LINKED WITH A MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION. The idea is that they are either profiling to keep their data base up to date or trying to sell you a special as 'their' customer,
HOW TO STOP THEM CALLING.. You can either block manually on your phone OR CALL 'VICTORIA LOFTUS' or 'MEGAN TAVITA' on (02) 9741 3863
And ask for your number TO BE REMOVED. Be FIRM!!
Best of luck everyone!! Hope this helps any of you that got as angry as I did when I politely asked to have it removed and hung up on again and again!! Xo
The f*ckers ring every day but my phone is programmed to answer their call and then drop them out. Best home phone I have ever owned. It is express media group you must have a mag supscription. I get these all the time.
What do they get out of this?
If I call back - is it some-sort of premium-rate number?
I've always considered that, if you want to know "WHY" - follow the money.
In this case, I can't see how they are making any?
I get calls 3 times a day from this number and they always hang up I do have a subscription to 4wd action magazine maybe I will cancel it if the calls continue and they always call at the worst time rings everyday around 10 am, i did buy a craft magazine subscription for my mum. have answered and told them i do not want to renew, do not call and if i want to renew i will do it myself. asked to be removed from call list. calls persist Have received at least 1 call per day for months. No one there. I don't even answer now
