Complaints this year
I keep getting calls from these guys to. I used to be a DODO customer but never again. This should be illegal, why would anyone want to pay their hard earned money to sly companies that engage in these types of practices. We should all work together to stamp these companies out, BOYCOTT THEM ALL I SAY!
i've never been w/ dodo, they called and i answered... could've been a client... they were trying to sell me some sily usa holiday for "discounted price" w/ the only catch being having to go to some timeshare seminar or something similar! I like the suggestion of programming a "special" ringtone just for these numbers that are annoying solicitations who don't know how to STOP calling! Great tip!
Yes, it's DODO Sales. Regular callers. I ignore their constant calls. On occasions when I have inadvertently answered it has been a real battle to end the call politely. "Hi **** how are you? We'd like to thank you for being such a great customer by giving you, free, this ...." When I say no they don't accept it. "Why would you say no? We're offering...." After one such intrusive call at work one of my colleagues, who had listened to my end of the call, marvelled at my patience, such was the time & polite argument required for them to leave me alone on that occasion. I would advise you to add the number into your contact list so you know who it is and don't answer. Also don't check any messages they leave - the message will be nothing but call centre background noise but it will cost you to check. If you find a way to stop them calling you ever again that is even better.
They keep calling me and I don't even know how they get my number. I have never been with dodo before.
They call me every day... first the home phone, and when I don't answer, my mobile. YES I am with DODO but I am SICK of them calling me to try to upsell me! I have internet and two mobile phones, and I also agreed to get a netbook with a wirless internet on a 2 year contract... you would THINK that'd be enough... but no they keep trying to sell me more mobiles...wtf
Can't wait till my contract is over...
Very annoying telemarking callers :(
I handle it by putting them on mute, then just putting the phone in a drawer while I keep working.
I figure if they are going to annoy me on my mobile phone, at least it is going to cost them to do it! :P
Dodo are f*****g c***s, never sign with them.
I kept receiving their calls without leaving any messages in my answering machine. It is annoying and they should stop bothering us
Play dumb! Let them spend their time talking and explaining everything over and over again. Then when they have finished their sales pitch for the 10th time, say "so what are you offering?" And let them get tiered of calling you. You don't have to actually listen to their garble. Put the phone down and every minute or so, say "ok" or "I see" the marketer will think he has a sale and will get more annoyed than you when he realizes he has been wasting his own time. Do this with all telemarketers and they will never call twice.
they call me EVERY *%@ DAY 3 OR MORE TIMES!!! on both my home phone numbers & if I ever broadcast my mobile they would call me there too no doubt!
I was thinking of going with them for mobile broadband & maybe even power but thanks to this forum I am now much wiser! cheers & thanks to the people here. I know your frustration. I have thrown my phone across the room in the early days of their calling which is 2yrs ago now. FOR 2YRS I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO ANSWER MY HOME PHONE WITHOUT CHECKING TO SEE THE CALLER. IT IS HARASSMENT IN THE EXTREME. I'M ON THE DO NOT CALL REGISTER. IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE. GRRRRRRRRRRRR
the only way to stop them & others is to change my numbers & that is to happen soon. I will tell NO-ONE my new numbers.
I have received calls from this number several times. I save all the telemarketer numbers I get, then customize their ringtones to "telemarketer calling, don't pick up!".
I've started answering the phone and leaving it so at least they have to pay for the call. Annoying bastards.
I am fairly sure that this number is not the real DODO. In the past they have asked me to supply personal details that I know that the real DODO has on their computer records. I then told them to check their records, which usually caused them to hang up on me immediately. I have been a customer of DODO for years and I am sure that the callers from this particular number are not who they say they are.
My work used to get calls from this number every now and then, but it's been at least twice a day everyday this week. As soon as you pick up, the other end hangs up. This is extremely annoying when I'm trying to answer the phone to help clients - I don't have time to waste with these stupid hang ups!
Yep I too am a Dodo customer and I'm tired of the upsell tactics. Their service I have no real complaints about but this stuff irks me. I have their number (along with 9 other numbers) in my mobile marked SPAM 1, SPAM 2, SPAM 3 etc. So that this is displayed when they call and I don't answer anymore. Had to laugh at what happened when reading Fed up's comment of 6/6/13 where they put an email addy to complain to and found it had been asterixed out. If you highlight that email addy you get a message saying that it's unable to be shown to avoid SPAM . . . LOL good one, so they can SPAM us but we can't SPAM them? Classic!
Dodo. Trying to sell me mobile plans!
Sneaky telemarketing tactics by Dodo
SICK to death of this number calling!!!
Landline and mobile - 2 - 3 times every day.
I got a caller ID telephone just so that I can check before I answer and get caught by them.
If I knew where to send the invoice for the new telephone, I'd do it....
Everyone that is upset with this practice, send a complaint to email@example.com at 12 noon EST next Monday, 10th June. Hopefully if 100 or so people complain, they might get the message.
