These people are unbelievable. I block their number and then they ring on another number, every day around lunchtime.
Numbers they have used 0488 800 997, 0488 801 178, 0488 801 246, 0488 827 762, 0488 801 214. 0488 827 764. I will give them marks for persistence but they are wasting their time because I am never going to answer.
Life Insurance As soon as I answered the phone they hung up. I appreciate anyone who has ever answered one of these calls and shares the information for those like me who screen my calls . I am another victim of the "I don't answer" group who then googles - blocks - and gets another 2 calls a day from a similar number . Doesn't matter how many numbers you block they just call from another . Whether you answer or not . I imagine this is what "Ground Hog Day" feels like . I understand people have to take crappy jobs to keep food on the table and bills paid but I'd sure like to get the number of the owner of this company and share that with everyone . OVER IT Firstly block every number that is used. Secondly don't give in to curiosity and phone a missed number back. That's what they want. I was getting two to three calls a day,just like people above here. Once the number is blocked it goes nowhere which leaves them nothing. In fact the mobile never gives any indication it was attempted as the blocking is instant, it will show up as blocked. My nuisance calls stopped some two weeks ago. Just block the bodgy number as it turns up. I recorded eight numbers to date covering mobile, landline, pager and fax machine. trying to get me to invest but they are rouge company. SPAM Exactly the same scenario with me, they call, I block their number, they call me back from another number, block again! This goes on all afternoon.
But what I found strange today although I’ve blocked most of these numbers over the last week, today they are calling me again from some of the same numbers?? How can that be??
It was widely reported on the Radio that calls like this are being received with the notion of once connected you are charged a fee at the higher rate especially if you call back. If you can block the number then do so no matter how many times it is changed. Once you see the 0488 number hang up and then block. I suspect this number sequence is on an automated system. If the call goes straight to an answering machine it usually ends abruptly. That tells me it requires human intervention to open up the line to your account. Just a guess. Calls usually starts around midday Qld time to anytime up to 7:30 pm DST. I understand Telstra is trying to prevent this number sequence from being used. What do they achieve by giving missed calls? Yep - they call me every day, despite me telling them to stop calling me and blocking their number, they continue relentlessly!!!!! I am sick of them calling, I have blocked the number but they just call on another number. This is harassment! 3 calls in less than 2 hours!!!! Hung up as soon as I answered. Called back and number was 'disconnected'. Suspect spam.Related numbers 0488 801 178, 0488 801 159. Ready to inform local police if calls don't stop sick of friggin spam telemarketer calls PISS OFF!! Says a lot for the "do not call" system. Obviously "doesn't work" Telemarketer is smarter than the Govt or Telstra same here! Call and hang up and if I do answer they are Abusive and rude. Indian accent missed the call, tried to call back, recording "this number cannot be connected".
I am now getting one of these type of calls from a mobile number daily and I block that number both here and on my phone. So what they try the next day from another number; same deal.
Optus block calls back to this number, but it still accepts a text
