Apparently this is "Wayne's" phone calling on behalf of one of Australia's charities. GO AWAY WAYNE - NOT GOING TO ANSWER Caller: Greenpeace
Quite disappointed and disgusted with Greenpeace harassing me for a regular monthly donation. The guy who called refused to understand why I didn’t want to hear about the detailed painful experiences of marine animals suffering from the plastic in the oceans. Even after informing him i’m doing what i can in my way by avoiding buying/using plastic and donating when i can (and want) he kept harassing me. Over and over about how they needed a regular payment and the poor suffering animals. When i said very politely (for the 5th time in one call) that i would not commit to a payment he hung up un me mid sentance.
This number regularly called me which resulted in missed calls. However, when I did pick up it was Green peace telling me about the plastics in the oceans. When I asked them how they got my number, they said it was through a petition I signed. Ok, cool. After a long spiel on animals choking on plastic at sea etc, the lady on the phone eventually asked for a regular payment. When I asked if I could do a one-off donation, the lady said that the one-off donation would be 'of no use' to Greenpeace, and that they needed a regular donation 'to show that their campaigns have support'. A bit silly and illogical if you ask me. Sorry, I am working minimum wage and cannot afford a regular donation. She ramped up the guilt-tripping and aggression - I didn't know how to respond so I just hung up.
Literally called me every second day for 2 weeks. Greenpeace wanting donations
I called back number 0420 101 363 rang 5 times then goes to busy tone. They didn't leave a message, but this is the same number others have complained about. They've called me twice already in as many days, but do not leave messages. I do not answer or call back numbers that I don't know. Caller: same number
drives you mad all these terrible scammers waisting our time and effort
Rang from a mobile number, which I don’t answer if I don’t recognise the number, went to voicemail and they left about 10 seconds of silence before the call ended. Blocked!! I got a call from this number , it rang about 5 times and stopped , I rang back straight away but no reply. Very annoying Has called 4 times in the last few weeks, never leaves a message. When I called back, it rings out. Greenpeace calling for donations Caller: Greenpeace ?
ranted on about plastic in supermarkets, something i already avoid. wanted $2 a day to help get rid of it. this amounts to $730 a year per person. no idea where the money is actually going. a lot of i goes to commission i assume? they have a very clever way of speaking to you to guilt trip you want to give them money without really realising it. not a fan of this tactic. i hung up
They literally call me about once a day. I have had to block two different numbers now from Greenpeace yet for some reason my mobile notifies me of this. It is bordering harassment! some sort of charity, asked them to repeat the name for me and he got pissed off. He said I had signed whatever petition but I told him I was busy Have had a few missed calles from this number. When I ring back it just continuesly rings. I also text it with out a reply yet, Rung me for around 7 seconds then hung up but by the looks of other comments they are probably wanting money Wanted money to help the barrier reef Called me on monday 10.30 am and introduced herself as Elena from Greenpeace Australia, told her I am in a meeting now and hung up. Probably wanted me to donate some $ to greenpeace australia and have no idea how they got my number and name. Called back and it was “Wayne’s phone” lol some sort of charity ? Don’t know don’t care. BLOCKt.
