Asking for donations for domestic violence. ?? Caller: Nuisance caller
Sick of these people calling, using a different phone number every time.
no message=blocked number Claimed to be "Next Steps Australia", a domestic violence charity. Sounds pre-recorded but engaged enough with my conversation that it must be a human. A bit pushy with the sales pitch and demand for a "pledge" even if you offer to donate online, and was quite abrupt with the hang-up at the end when I refused to provide pledge details over the phone. I did not answer as I am not in Vic. Rang my home phone and did not leave a message Didn’t answer, but they call all the time. My policy is not to answer any numbers I don’t know. They don’t leave a message which tells me all I need to know. It’s hard to block this particular one - they just call using a different number. Caller: Domestic violence
Claim they need $300 and have 2 others already contributing $100 so just need your $100.
Definitely using a pre-recorded function. Can't tell if bots or someone physically pressing the respective message responses, but seems very very dodgy. Also waaay to cheery message for such a serious topic.
Caller: Domestic violence charity
Similar to earlier post, just needing one more generous person to give $100 to make the $300 gift hamper for the day complete. Then raised her request to $150. Said that was too much, so she dropped to $50, then $35, then $25, then jumped up to $300! I pointed out if i stayed on the line much longer, she would ask for $1000! She disconnected then. Waaaay too cheery to almost laughing when talking about a serious subject such as DV. I had asked where my number was obtained from. Told they buy lists from different brokers. I suggested using the money used to purchase my number would be better than asking for mine.
Definitely scam call wanting donation with bank details 🤔🤔 grub c*nts. Number said area was from Clayton and I have seen that prefix with other dodgy numbers. They also never left a message. These scamming pests never give up. I never answer the phone these days without knowing who's calling, and this number has called so often that I blocked it, but still they never give up. There surely must be something the telcos can do about this incessant intrusion into our homes. They Just Ring And Ring And Ring I had a phone call this evening, from this number, originating (according to my phone) from Clayton, Victoria. It was the same as some of the above callers, looking for the third person to donate $100 to join the other two people who had donated today.
Very well spoken English from the First Lady who, when I agreed to donate $50, put me through to her “manager” who spoke with an Asian accent. I hung up when I was told they couldn’t send me any information in the mail. I feel this is very dodgy!!
scam call Caller did not leave a message, so I did not return the call. The same number called me on the 18 January and again did not leave a message. I've received three calls from the same lady - the first time I gave her a chance because I used to work for a research survey centre for NSW councils and the NSW government. First time I said no, as I already support a small number of select charities. She acknowledged this. Second time, she called again. I recognised her voice. I said that I had received her call before and wasn't able to commit and could she please take me off her list. There was no apology. 3rd time call today. I don't mind charities as I've worked for a few but when people say no or can only afford a certain amount they charity worker this should be respected! So sick of these calls this time it was 7.40pm Tuesday night.............how do we stop them Caller: scam caller
have this number on block however they still don't get it and try repeatedly every two days up to 20 times in succession. Shows their desperation to steal money.
Caller: obviously someone who gets paid a commission to ring people but not leave a message
my advice to these morons who are so annoying
LEAVE A MESSAGE IF YOU ARE GENUINE !!!!!!!
You ruin the system for others
We don't answer numbers that aren't in our phone book
Rang on Monday night at 7.55 pm. I hung up on them
