Left no message so not important. However I called back and automatically connected to voice mail box. Scam This number called me they new my full name and because I never new the number or did not recognise the voice I hung up then I tried calling number back with my number hidden to see if they would Identify them self when answered but instead recording saying “YOUR CALL COULDNT BE CONNECTED PLEASE CHECK THE NUMBER BEFORE CALLING AGAIN” I called back the number 0422 930 015 but was routed automatically to an ivr Called back and got the "YOUR CALL COULDNT BE CONNECTED PLEASE CHECK THE NUMBER BEFORE CALLING AGAIN”
Suggestions - Ask them if they checked the Australian "do not call" register prior to calling, if not, it's illegal and you can threaten legal action. Guaranteed to get you off their (and affiliates) lists!
Or say the are calling a restricted government line. They hang up and vanish.
Caller: I Don't Care
What people need to know is that all these calls are aided and abetted by telstra ! They have an endless bank of numbers that these people are given access to, so they just have to make the call then telstra under their agreement just allocates one of this number bank to that call and another call will have another number bank number allocated to it , this is why if you do happen to call back the connection just cuts out because you are calling a non existent number ; and telstra should be ashamed of themselves for that " Profit Over Privacy! " shame on you Telstra! The only other hang up calls you will get "are" actual numbers their the ones that let it ring just once or twice then end the call, the idea behind this is to get you to call them wondering what they wanted and by doing so you have just given them two things they can now overcome the " Do Not Call Register " as you have now phoned them and they are just returning your call ( perfectly legal ) and secondly you have just let them know that yours is an active number so they can now sell it off to a mailing list along with any details about you they have .
SO if you don't know the number and they don't leave messages "BLOCK" the lot of them and tell everyone you know to do the same.
Legitimate callers will generally always leave some form of message for you.
And to finish my rant!
Shamefully enough most of these calls come from the one company that collects for most of the well known charities and for every $1 you donate only about 3 cents to a maximum of 8 cents from that $1 goes to that actual charity the rest goes into the pockets of these annoying " Thieves "
Thanks for your time!
PS:~ TELL EVERYONE !
Caller: "Impact Marketing" ... yeah, right.
This mob is just trying to get your personal details to scam you. Hang up and block them.
Has anyone applied for finance recently? Because they rang my mobile looking for my husband. My mobile was used on his finance application. It’d be interesting to know if anyone has applied through this finance company as it sounds like they’ve either sold a heap of details or they’ve been hacked for applicants details.... Scam I contacted Impact Marketing! The callers are definitely not from Impact Marketing! Impact marketing- whoever they are. Indian voice, I hung up and they rang back - nobody there. I agree SCAM! If my number is on the official do not call register, how on earth do scammers get my number? This person knew my name and kept trying to call back after I hung up on him. Basically a pest and most likely a scammer. Blocked number Caller: telemarketing - Investment?
Knew my name and reckoned I had spoken to a colleague a few months ago . Was very pushy and wanted my e-mail address. Asked him to remove me from call list.
Didn't leave a message although someone was there Caller: Impact marketing
That’s who they say they are from. Hung up on them and they called me back to try again. Blocked.
Impact Marketing apparently - I hung up Yet to answer but constantly getting a call. No voice message left or sms. Scam for sure. Tried calling back the number. it says "your call cannot be connected". called back twice, could not connect, suggest a scam
