charity fundraisers - very persistant. First it was (03) 9006 0157, and now it's (03) 9006 0156 that woke me today, again. I have a functioning answering machine but they never leave a message - so they're now never goign to disturb me again either because I'm blocking the calls. charity spam Caller ID showed number as (03) 9006 0156. Normally, when a number actually originates in a state the area code doesn't show (on our caller ID anyway). With this number it is either no answer from caller and definitely no message left on machine or very scripted, very persistent sales pitch (for whatever charity they're representing at the time). You can't get a word in edge ways until the person has finished their script. I no longer answer when this number shows on Caller ID. I need a phone with unlimited blocked numbers I think. What is the point of having a Do Not Call Register if these Numpties can get around the rules by claiming to represent a "charity"? Several calls just like others are reporting. They just hang up soon after you answer. I called the number back and they claim to be Apple Marketing, a charity fundraiser. On their website (applemarketing.com.au) They say
"Calls from Australian Charities, or organisations calling on behalf of charities (such as Apple Marketing Group Pty Ltd) are not considered to be telemarketing calls, as outlined in the Do Not Call Register Act 2006....
if you do not wish to receive calls from Apple Marketing Group on behalf of registered charities, you may contact us to have your number added to the Apple Marketing Group Do Not Call Register.
Download our form and email this to dnc @ applemarketing.com.au. It may take up to 30 days for the update to take effect.
Called & did NOT leave message This number is extremely annoying and persistent Telstra won’t so anything about it as they accept money from anywhere they have no morales if Telstra was interested they would do something about these people but just choose to ignore these people If you go to their website and download their DNC Form and return to dnc @ applemarketing.com.au you should be removed; being on the Do Not Call Register alone does not block them Very rude to hang up when one answers the call. Blocked now They are still active. Thanks to Reverse Australia - I ignore them! Received a call from (03) 9006 01056.
Fund raiser seeking donations to support Kids with Cancer.
Declined the offer to donate.
they have a whole list of numbers available when you block one they use another-should be illegal Blocked this call Another call that hangs up before I get there. Sick of being interrupted for nothing. dodgy Automated dialling system. They do not leave messages as a computer is doing the calling and then forwards the call to an operator if you answer it. I have had to block these numbers but then all they do is use a slightly different one. Being rung about 3 to 4 times a month and when I am at work or at dinner time. My 'Auto Reject' list is getting big. Never leave a message - annoying Alternate calls from (03) 9006 0156 then (03) 9006 0157. Both going to my Answering Machine, and no messages left. Made a donation to Kids Cancer last September & apparently ticked a box to say I was interested in continuing to support them in the future ...then proceeded to go through the whole story of the charity - was checking in to a Motel so had to cut her off in the end very annoying, very persistent and very uninformative about who they really are. Typical scam artists.
