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 !
I called back number 0480 025 442 rang once then gets disconnected automatically. similar story with multiple calls, no message left so I was wary and wanted to see if anyone else had posted this number. Thanks everyone for taking the time to add your comments. Number now blocked. I’m starting to tell these guys to hold for a minute and just don’t speak, they hang up after a minute or two. If everyone did this to them, they would waste so much of their own time Multiple calls unanswered, starting 9.10.19. Number now blocked. Caller: NexGen Insurance
Very annoying - calling at all times of the day starting from 6.30am. Have blocked. Again.
Just adding to the list of complaints about this number. Called me several times so i called back. They said they were from insurance wanted my details. I hung up and blocked the number straight away. Caller: 0480 025 442
I’ve blocked this phone call twice and they still ring me from the exact same number! It is frustrating as I don’t know why the exact number is still getting through as I’ve blocked the number. How do I stop this?!
Caller: Premium Advise Network
i called back and got put on a queue, said they are called Premium advise network".
dont know who they are.
keeps on calling . do not want to hear from them Caller: Pest
Keeps harassing me. Block it immediately.
Rings incessantly. Tried to call back to put it to sleep but "number not available from this service" was the only outcome. Bloody nuisance. I've now blocked the number. Caller: Insurance comparisons
Have blocked this number a few times but they still call even after I said I had only recently changed Health insurance through iselect. She still wanted to do a comparison because apparently they use different Health insurers. When I declined again this Lady was rude and curt and pushed again to try and find out who my insurer was. I Just said “not interested, I’m hanging up now”! But She beat me to it! Just more pests!!!
another cold call scammer I answer and there is no one there. Premium Advice Network about health insurance. First thing he said was I'm being recorded for quality and training. I said I don't give permission to record me. He said that's too bad. That was his 2nd mistake, 1st mistake was calling me... there won't be a 3rd. Sounded like a call centre in the background. No voicemail. Caller: Health insurance comparison
Was eager to speak to me until I said I wasn't upgrading to hospital and he couldn't cut me off quick enough. I didn't want to talk to him but was mighty offended that he hung up so quick, so thats what you say if you don't want to talk to the grubs.
