Received a call from this phone number today. I answered the phone and said hello. No one responded. Said hello a second time. No response. I hung up. Tried to call the number back but the call is disconnected before I hear a ringback tone. I suspect the person calling is using CLI overstamping, which allows the person calling to display a different number from the number they are calling from. The Australian Communications and Media Agency has some great information about this on their website acma.gov.au/phone-number-scams Called late at night from a Victorian number. Told them to keep their covid to them selfs no one wants u in qld (03) 8595 9810 called but did not leave a message, connected only for 6s. Charity Choice looking for a donation.
Explained that I don't hand over money to complete strangers from unsolicited phone calls. Appears to be a scammer.
Let my 2 yr old answer.
It was hilarious.
Caller: Smart Health Australia
I've done a little research into this company. For a commission, Smart Health Australia raise money for organisations that only meet the ATO's criteria for being Not-For-Profit, therefore bypassing the Do Not Call rule for unsolicited residential contact. Since this company was working on behalf of several charities is the reason that they have so many phone numbers they are able to use to invade our privacy. I'm probably way off but I have been contacted by & I've also blocked 18 numbers that are registered to Smart Health Australia, but I am absolutely certain they have a large amount more. I've often wondered why they attempt to contact me so often & use a different number to call from each time & use a different charity each time. I've had the unfortunate luck of being struck down with respiratory failure twice, it's like having a heart attack but it was my lungs that were affected. Each time the ICU doctors in my local hospital deemed it essential for me to be flown down to a major hospital in Brisbane & I was flown down by the RACQ Careflight helicopter. Anyway the reason for this long winded story was that a little while after each time I was flown down to Brisbane in the RACQ Careflight helicopter, RACQ Careflight called. Each time they called my mother took the call & feeling quite grateful that RACQ Careflight were able to assist me, she bought what they were offering each time. Which brings me to my second point of being contacted so many times by so many different numbers. Once the company realise a residence has blocked a certain number, I think they have a computer program that either informs the employee to use a different line or it does it automatically & said program informs the employee who to say they are calling from. Smart Health Australia is a parasite that is practically impossible to get rid of is my experience.
they called & i can't call them back let it ring out and called them back - the number you have dialled is not in service unsolicited hang up message, so I blocked it. Getting more of these of late, so I block any number that I don't recognise! I got phone call from this number as well I have been getting them alot most are private I don't answer I rang this number back got message number not in service it was American accent Calls everyday between 5:30 and 8pm. Leaves silent voicemails, says the number isn’t connected when you call it back. Have blocked this number and multiple others and they keep switching numbers Received a call from this number today. Said it was a survey regarding Charities in Australia but after reeling off all the privacy details, first question was how do I pronounce my name. No way! Definite scam to try and get voice recordings. Didn't speak - hung up.
No wonder land-line services are being cancelled in their thousands.
These calls are very annoying They hung up when I answered Caller: No answer
Had numerous calls when I say hello it hangs up. Nuisance caller
Answered but silent at the other end then they hung up. Called but did not leave a message on the answering machine. Does not respond when called back Same as above. Called back, no answer. No message = blocked number. no message=blocked number
