I called back number 0410 571 284 reached voice mail but did not say for what company. Caller: Michelle Baxter (at least this was the name she gave me).
Told me she was from a National Research Company - discussion about Superannuation. I mentioned that I was not comfortable with giving over information, and tried many times to hang up - I should have just been rude and hung up. Anyway, I refused to give her my postcode, and she finally said that was ok, someone would be in touch with me to discuss in the next day or two. She said they did not have access ways of finding out about us, and was friendly then THOUGHT she had hung up on me, but had not - so I could hear ALL the conversations of the staff in their office. Rather interesting, I heard other staff mentioning how people they spoke to were Fu**wits etc etc, at least Michelle did not say that about me. BUT she did say, well she told me what her occupation was, and that she was in Melbourne, and I had her first name, so I Googled her, and now have all the information I needed and she would not tell me over the phone - then said "isn't the internet a wonderful thing." It will be an interesting conversation when the person who is going to call me does tomorrow! I will let them know ALL about their privacy call conversations that they try to convince potential customers about. Funny how we can't call them back on their number isn't it!
National research company They asked my how my day been so far, so I told them, 20 minutes later they hung up on me.
legal action needs to be taken against these bastards, totally over these pests that keep calling me. why can't the police do anything about these useless people??? Caller: Russell
Said he was from the National Review Service. I believe this is the same group linked to Information Australia. Use an impressive Government sounding name to elicit information. Best to block number.
Caller: National review
Trying to work out if I’m eligible for a rebate
Lady said they were enquiring to see if i was eligible for a government grant. Was i working, am i paying off/own my home and am i under 60. I got a recorded message saying "You are the only one in this teleconference" and then silence. Caller: National grant rebate
I was asked my age and if I rent or own a Home. I said why do u need to know? She said I qualified for a grant. Told her my house is paid off and dont need any grants. She insisted “ you are missing out” told her if I qualify I will call you back as Im busy. I requested her full name, and ID Number of our conversation and office number as She used a mobile instead or to sent me a letter. She requested my address but told her if you know my phone & I qualify you should know where I live as my number is in your data.She got nasty upset and hung up. Already blocked from my phone as she didnt even know my name or surname. When she asked I gave her a fictional name. Totally a persistant scammer 😂
ph rang/ I answered- they hung up/ I rang the number (within 20seconds) - got robo messagebank. Blocked. Caller: National Research Centre
It's a scam trying to obtain your personal information. She couldn't say who she was calling so never give out your information to these callers!
I report these calls to ASIC ..I am on the do not call register, yet these sneak through some how! Caller: national review service
got a call and asked me similar questions. they hung up when i said I was googling them.
I had a missed call from this mob a few days ago. It showed up as a "Potential Fraud" call & when I checked the number found all this info relating to scam calls. They called back yesterday, so I was ready for them. Sarah from "National Review Service" was very polite & friendly & told me they were calling to talk to me about a Govt scheme where I could redirect some of my tax into superannuation. She wanted to start with my name & address but I when I questioned her about their company ABN number she couldn't provide one. Said they were a private organisation, to which I responded that if they were a registered company, they would have an ABN. She told me she couldn't give me an ABN, but her manager might have it & wanted to keep asking me questions. I asked to speak with a manager who could provide me with an ABN so I could check their company on the Australian Business Register website. She told me the manager was in a meeting & put me on hold. I hung up.
I never answer calls when the location just comes up "Australia". Also most of these numbers that show as mobiles are actually disguised land line numbers. As soon as I say my company name they hang up. block the buggers Some dodgy rebate offer. Rudest people ever. I said I was too busy and she replied "why even answer the phone if you're so busy?" she then hung up on me. Did not pick up and they left no msg so I’m guessing telemarketers or such. Will block the number
