This number belongs to DBM Consultants, based in Melbourne
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.
I am on the 'Do not call Register' but they still keep calling. Literally just got a call - a "missed"call from this number, found the forum and just added this number to the äuto reject option :-) thanks to all who pass on this info!!! when you have a silent number it means silent not be pissed off by telly marketers every day. 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...
These people that hide their number should be shot
I hate telemarketers
Bloody telemarketers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Piss off 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.
I just got a call from this number, I heard someone say FRANCO COTSO in the background and someone told me they wanted to suck my cock! Not happy. Also BTW I dont have a cock! Was that one of your survey questions? 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. This number is harrassing me on a daily basis- November 2015 here are the details
Address: 5/7 Guest St, Melbourne VIC 3122
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
joined donotcall.com.au to prevent in future 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. Waste of time .. Had 2 calls today and every time I pick up, they hang up the phone ... they keep calling me, despite me not ever answering.
