Some power company offering deals The sneaky bastards called at 6:30pm and again the following morning at 9am. My theory is if they don't leave a voicemail message then it can't be too important. Still... Arseholes! Sumo power - Ignore and block the number I answered - Sumo Energy didn't let him start his speal just requested to be taken off the list and not called again...how do these people even get your number!!!??? I answered "Melbourne City Morgue, corpse number 73 speaking. Please give me your account number". Never heard from them again. It's not even the real Sumo Power... Saw this forum and added them to auto-reject list; problem solved! :) Rang with my address, asked him for his and he wasn't able to provide me with that. the worlds number one stupid call!!! thats all i can say unknown I missed a call 2 days ago but alas they called again today. I looked up the missed number and found this website and the comments on it. So when they rang today, before they said a word I said HELLO SUMO! They admitted I had gotten thru to Sumo ... as if I rang them??? WTF! Anyway I told them I dont want people I don't know calling my mobile but they persisted, so I told them about the websites I had found and recited some of the comments I found, being sure to repeat the one that mentioned arseholes... 3 times... after telling them 4 times I dont want to talk to them they gave up. calling every day nuisance caller They just called me. I asked him how he got my name and number. He said "Data Solutions". I said I had no idea what that was and don't call me ever again. Yes, annoying call from Sumo power. Block the number! For about 2 weeks would ring nearly every second day about 3 times a day. I blocked the number, and they started ringing off a different number. One day they left a 30 second long voicemail that was just back ground noise so I rang them back- a guy answered saying hello? and I said I had a missed call from you, then he said oh hi this is so and so from sumo energy how can I help you. I then proceeded to tell him how I had been rung 3 times in the one day and wanted to be taken off the list as I do not live out of home, have no need for an energy provider and didn't want to be rung anymore and he became quite aggressive saying that I needed to provide my number in order to be taken off the list. Eventually gave him my number after arguing saying they had my number because I had been rung so many times. He was very rude, but I haven't been been rung since. Scam! Sumo Power offering shonky deals.
They ask for for all of your personal details, drivers license number, medicare number, D.O.B so they can run a 'Credit Check'
The dude I spoke to got really aggressive when I refused to give him any personal information.
Complete scam. Cheap power that will cost you more. A call blocker is the only way to go. Ah man these people are annoying. So many calls I got worried I'd missed a payment on something! Turns out just a bloody telemarketing company. I've only had this number 4 months, no idea where these bastards got it from, I wonder if they're just dialing random numbers! Don't answer.....spam caller....Electricity....say we can get you a good price then after a month...the price goes up well over other companies price........can only happen in Aus!
So much for NO CALL LIST.....like the Govt I guess....'useless".
Rang my number and then hung up expecting us to call back. Well, a quick google came up with this page. So I'm not calling you back because now I know who you are.
