    Caller: NSW Cancer Institute

    Received SMS reading:
    ""This message is on behalf of the Cancer Institute of NSW, part of the NSW Government. In the coming days, the Social Research Centre will call to see if you can take part in an important health study. Reply '1' if you live in NSW or ACT. Reply '2' if you do NOT live in NSW or ACT. Call 1800 023 040 to opt out."

    Given that they present themselves as being part of multiple companies, institutes, etc. safe to assume it's just a scam. Do not reply or contact. Simply ignore or block if you can.
