Just tell lies. I like telling call centres, I'm in the building with you, or, I have warp power if it's electricity sales, or I'm already dead for life insurance. Or I work for that company or a competitor. Or I don't understand your language. Or put a kid on. Or tell them an alien has its fingers in my arse. Just had a call tonight.. She actually sounded annoyed that I answered and she had to talk.. She said survey, I hung up.. Its EY Sweeney conducting 'research' E Y Sweeny.. Market research.. i tell them the MD has put a block on all surveys.. but they keep trying.. wish they would just bugger off A "missed call" was in our call log. Thanks for the respondents who identified the number as belonging to EY Sweeney Market Research. Our numbers are on the Do Not Call Register, however they are still allowed to call. I have written to them to the effect that we do not participate in market research surveys, hence please ensure that they do not call our numbers. Australians may be interested in this URL: http://www.acma.gov.au/Industry/Marketers/Do-not-call-register/Telemarketing-standard/telemarketing-rules-i-acma It called me tonight and said it's a survey from Australian government! They call, I ask them not to, they call and call and call and call and call. I block and block and block and block, every day they call from a new number, always energy offers; life insurance surveys; steak knives. They call sometime from Australia; sometimes overseas. Never provide your number freely to anything people. I signed up to an offer 5 months ago I thought legitimately was from Dan Murphy's Liquor. The calls never cease daily no matter what I do or say. Persitant bastards. How do we know that the ACMA "Do not call register" is sometimes not the source of those pests getting our numbers in the first place. I mean, if the ACMA register was hacked, do you think they would tell you?
Lucky for me I have a call screening facility on my mobile. I just set the recording to leave a message and they have to respond. I have unlimited nationwide call credit so calling back is not a problem for me. However, if they do not even bother to leave a message then I cannot help them...I would leave info as to what service provider has the good deals I currently enjoy however, it would probably be unethical and against this boards policy as it may be misconstrued as advertising. Sorry Folks....
Bloody annoying. It is stalking they just don't give up. Always hangs up when I answer just hang up on you Keeps calling me after 7pm, so annoying. These monkey looking c#nts need to be bombed asked them to remove my number as i will never participate in any of their offers/surveys,etc,so better for them to use their time to call someone who may respond.
they keep calling.and calling.and calling.
spam Blocked!! you need a phone/ fax machine and always switch to fax from 3 to 7 pm then all they get is a screaming noise down the line.after a few weeks they give up. Sweeney market research sweeney research.. I just waste their time...each time they call.. which is every day. I'm here all day, each week. They will get the same crappy reply. Sweeney market research just a voice mail no one answers leave your number after the beep with your number called twice today and once a couple of days ago. Never talk when it goes through to voicemail, can just hear a lot of background noise. When I call the number it goes through to a message bank for Sweeney market research and states they want to complete a survey but if you don't want to participate then leave your number and they'll removed from the call list. When I wait to leave a number their mailbox is full
