rang then no answer Caller: Nielsen surveys
Interview about internet tv usage. Didn’t ask for any info that was identifiable.
Caller: Nielson TV Audience Measurement
This is a legit market research company in Mascot Sydney, they ask simple technology questions and a few demographics - nice people.
Just like any other market research agency if you wish not to be contacted you just say "take me off your list" otherwise they have the right to call you
picked up but they hung up straight away Caller: Nielsen Television and Audience Survey
It was for television survey.
Caller: Neilsen TV Survey
Agreed to take part in survey, but when I declined to answer some of he questions the female became loud and forceful wanting some replies. Was hard pushed when asked what the survey was for and how it would be used. Got very upset when I declined to indicate ages, where born and began to talk over me. I then informed her the call was going to be terminated.
Caller: Neilson TV survey
Starts conversation with " we are not trying to sell you anything" became abrupt and demanded to know why I was not interested in answering her survey. Rude pushy people. Have rung both home phone and mobile number.
Caller: I used this site before even trying to find out who called.
Thanks to the feedback already posted I am blocking the number (in addition, my phone identified the number as possible suspect fraud). I see no reason why, without suitable payment, I should donate my services to what is probably a market research company. If everyone felt the way I feel - the market research companies would collapse. Thanks for posting.

SPAM. Continued to call me during work hours for some weeks although never answered as I did not recognize the number. I finally answered it today and as soon as I heard 'Nielsen' I said 'No thanks, have a nice day". The guy called back immediately and asked me how I could not be interested if I hadn't heard what he has to say. Abuse ensued. SPAM

TOO SUSS. PROBABLY WORK-SAFE SURVELLIANCE. THEY HACK AND DISBURB EVERYONE WHEN A CLAIM IS ON THE HORIZON.
Called me on a Saturday at lunch time. Didnt answer based on your helpful advice. Now blocked. Ta. I never answer the phone if I do not recognise the number and check the missed calls list. Since July they have rung me seven times even though I blocked the number two months ago!! Stupid and very persistent. inundated calls for tv ratings....

They get paid a sh1tl0ad for your data.
All calls recorded! Told him I was recording him, he got very upset and eventually hungup.
Called my Mobile on Sundays 4-11-2018 @ 12:47 noon No answer and 10-11-2018 @ 4:25 pm No answer and on Thursday 15-11-2018 @ 8:13 pm No answer.
What am I to do?
I answered, they said "we aren't selling anything today" and then I hung up. Caller: (02) 9304 4303
Same number called. Don’t know how they got our numbers but they need to F off!
rang but did not answer hung up Caller: Telemarketer
Seemed legit, pleasant guy but the timeframe was suspicious - 8:30 pm at night?
Claimed to have computer-generated my mobile number? I stated I wasn't interested and refused to give personal details. Fearful of place being staked out...
Slightly outside the normal practice of business in NSW. I added their number then blocked it. I went so far as to notifying police who took the number down.
When I initially called right back (to check the number) there was an instant voice mail.
Caller: Neilson TV survey? Really? 8:30 pm at night?
Called at 20:30 pm asking whether I had 5 mins to complete a survey?
"OK, well this is a private mobile number so how did you get it?"
"Oh, it was computer-generated".
"Well sorry, I'm in the middle of a TAFE assignment and wish I could help."
"OK, no problem some other time then?"
"Thanks no, I'm simply not interested".
In summary, the guy was pleasant enough but it went straight to an official-sounding message bank when I curiously called back. Seemed legit enough, but you never know - it raised real concerns since it was after business hours? I made note of the number and blocked it. Like wow...
