    Annoying Telemarketers

    I answered the phone nicely and realised it's a research company - DMB. I kept talking and offered these guys a 10% discount if they book a catering job before the the end of November. Obviously, they were not interested with our services. So, if you (or the company you work for) have goods/services to sell you might as well try and get them to buy/book from you. I figured out these guys will never stop calling, ever. Rehearse your sales pitch now! 1 booking/sale = 1 survey, let's coexist! :)

    Just a call from them this morning via my mobile. Survey about my internet provider. I told her my hubby is in charge of that and he doesn't like to do survey. Before I finish, she hung up on me. How rude?

    Did I search on her number and found this forum. I've blocked her number on my mobile...you can easily do so if you have an iphone. I've also emailed them to tell them to leave me alone or I'll be name and shame them on all social media. Not gonna put up with those being rude.

    No but the scammers imply they have a Telstra "connection"
    But if you ring back you start getting 3rd party service charges on your Telsra bill
    This is what the scammers did to us
    Ring but when you answer they hang up - multiple calls
    (even answered after 1st ring,1 time... still "missed call"!?!?!)
    Made the mistake of ringing back on my mobile & got charged $10 /week for 7 weeks before I could get rid of them
    Some "marketing?" thing? claim something to do with Telstra but they're not!
    Comes up as 3rd party Premium SMS service on my telstra bill.
    Took 2 months to get it sorted & get rid of them & their bogus charges
    They rang again today & yes they hung up as soon as I answered
    Have warned everyone on my email list of these scammers
    Next step today tonight national television...

    DBM Consultants is not a telemarketer and is not in the business of selling anything. DBM conducts market research on behalf of large ASX-listed corporations and many major government departments and global companies.

    Yeah it's dbm consultants, a marketing firm in Melbourne. Kept getting blank phone calls from (03) 8862 3450, when I'd answer it would remain quiet and when I'd direct it to voicemail, the voicemail would be a 20 second one but there would be no talking or anything, just a waste of time and it's been waking me up and driving me insane!! Did some research, called the company and spoke to Abbey who is apparently the manager of the telecommunications team, advised her I'm on the DNCR and she said that doesn't help cos DBM are calling for marketing research (how is that any different from spam idk) but after we spoke for a few minutes, she agreed to remove my name and number from the system and that I wouldn't be receiving any calls in the future from this particular company. I take that as a verbal contract and if the company calls me again at any point of time for anything at all, I'll send the details to Fair Trading.
    My advice is just call the number I called (03) 8809 5333 and tell someone to remove your number from the database. Be firm.

    Have received calls from this number repeatedly over the last month. Just had a read of this forum and now realised they are telemarketers. I have an android phone and blocked their number "click on the missed number, choose more, then block settings". I too am on the do not call register so not sure how they can call me. They never leave messages. So annoying.

    Phone:(03) 8809 5333

    we should have the ACCC investigate them on what they do

    or one day they may end up in a bad situation

    Thanks for the comments (although sometimes I wonder.....). Been called by both numbers mentioned in the thread. If I don't recognise it and it's interstate I leave them to go through to messagebank. if they don't leave a message then I know they're not legit and just block them. No dramas, no pain, no reason to stress myself.
