Random time wasters,not worth the air they breathe We have the same problem and it has been going for over a year. I have been able to block a number of these unsolicited telemarketing calls but phone now full. They ring every evening around 6PM and sometimes again around 8PM. This is often followed up with another call from an unknown number. I don't see why these numbers cannot be blocked by the telecom companies. It has resulted in our not answering our phone when it rings and letting it go to voicemail which is not good when friends call and are trying to contact us! Not sure who it was. Some guy answered. Told them im on the do not call list so stop calling me and hanged up. Seriously i put myself on do not call list for a reason and that to stop telemarketers hassling me so why am i still receiving their calls???? Yes has stop them from ringing 10 to 15 times a day but i still getting telemarketing calling so what gives? call asking for mr x (previous owner). I say it's not me and they instantly hang up. For sure it's a scam/telemarketing company. Got a call from them asking if I was the owner of the phone number. When I said yes, they proceeded to tell me they were from "Connected Telco" and that I was entitled to a discount on my bill. I am with Telstra and have never heard of Connected Telco. They did not ask for any identity verification which is required by law from Telco companies before speaking to the person. Hung up on them and did not receive a call back. Have been calling since Dec 2016 at between 5 and 7
As every one has said, scammers don't waste your time
these people call they my home phone they have my surname and tell me that as of next month my bill will change, so I ask them where they are calling from, with hesitation responds "the office" I asked which office responds "here in nsw" and hangs up
conclusion don't give them any money or personal details
Like other comments above, calls from that number received at same time multiple days per week with usual response of "goodbye" after answering. Also checked call-back, but can not connect. Problem is these calls go to my 90+ year-old mother who struggles to get to the phone to answer, but feels that she must in case it's family calling. This is a sick form of harassment. Telecommunications authorities in Aus should be able to facilitate blocking of this activity. Action required! just block them Spam. They call my work phone daily... When answering I hear a foreign voice saying "Goodbye." Definitely spam. gets me why telstra, when you pay for a silent number, feel its alright to onsell it to third parties anyway They call daily maybe up to 4 times, finally picked up after weeks of this same number ringing only for the twits to tell me they are from Telstra when i rang the number back surprise surprise number is disconnected ... So really annoying Canadian Pharmacy selling Viagra. Decided to answer after they rang me three times in 5 days......asked them not to call again. Guy insists they have a great deal at the moment Rings every day at 5pm!! Why cant you block these numbers??!! I foolishly answered - They are a Canadian Pharmacy Company selling Viagra etc....sounds like a call centre in India somewhere When you return the Call , it states the number you called is not connected. O/S call channeling through unused local Australian numbers. I called back number (02) 9119 9055 rang 4 times then goes to busy tone. They call daily and do not leave a message. when you do pick up the phone a computer message states "goodbye." Really annoying!!

Suncorp group. Constant robo calls that only ring once before hanging up. Obviously not genuinely...
