With the regular prefix of 02 9094 suspect that this call centre has another new number. Did 'the usual' and waited and, sure enough, went to message bank and then call terminated.
Waiting to see if this number is flagged on this site by other recipients and will block.
NSWRFSA Raffle tickets
I'm going with scammers pretending to be raising money for the RFS. Blocked. This number calls me everyday at 3 p.m. The call is still coming in after I blocked the number, this is madness. Answered, but they hung up. Called back and got an automated message about the rural fire brigade. Not sure if it is a scam or not. Caller: Bloke from RFS volunteers
Ask for name and email looking for money to donate. Never recieved email
This number calls regularly but it is flagged by my phone as spam. After reading the comments here, I found this info on the RFS website:
The NSW Rural Fire Service Association (RFSA), an independent and separate organisation which represents our volunteers and staff, does sell raffle tickets over the telephone as a fundraising initiative. These raffles are conducted through a telemarketing company and comply with the requirements of the NSW Department of Gaming and Racing. The operators are required to establish their bona fides and offer a return call number. The Association may also send out pledge letters but does not solicit donations.
Please contact the RFSA on (02) 4722 2122 or via their websitefor further information.
Caller: RFS NSW

Calls me at 7am every morning, when it first started happening looked number up and it came up as different business names. Going with SCAMMERS!!! Selling raffle tickets for NSW RURAL FIRE SERVICE
Asked him to wait. Before I could google the number and he said is everything ok and hung up
I got the same result from as the previous comment. I've just blocked the number. They don't leave a message so obviously don't know me or need to get in touch. Probably a nuisance call. Caller: Nsw Rural Fire Service
Fundraising for the Rural fire service
They are scammers Sounds like a nasty scam . Too many errors to be true . Caller: RFSA
I called the RFSA and they confirmed this is a legitimate number they use for fundraising.
This is genuine number - check the RFSA website http://www.rfsa.org.au/ they confirm is genuine number, not a scam

Thank you for your ongoing support.
Scammers claiming to be seeling raffle tickets for the Rural Fire Service of NSW. If you pay by credit card right then and there on the phone, they say they will give you free tickets to double your chances of winning. Poor English spoken and when checked with the RFS -- they have no raffle going and they say this is not legitmate
