No one at the other end when I answered the phone, they just hung up. Believe it is attached to Compare the market website. Pain in the frikin butt !!!!! Yep i compared insurance with COMPARE THE MARKET AND BUDGET DIRECT. Makes me furious, will not use either of them again. Get constant phone calls up to 11pm, and they won't tell me who they are until i confirm my name. I asked for 'THEIR NAME' OR 'COMPANY NAME' they refused to give it, until i answered. So i just hung up. Block this number!! Grrrrr blocked it but apparently budget direct online I called back number (07) 3327 8506 reached IVR for a company called auto & general services. Even if you don't answer, they just leave a blank voicemail with no information. Really frustrating, why do they think people would sign with this company with these kind of practices. Yep. I was playing around with the Compare the market site last night and now despite claiming they wouldn't contact me, here they are trying. My app automatically blocked them but it's still a nuisance. I never gave them permission to call my number Same as others, I had made an enquiry on compare the market. Someone called but hung up when there was a lot of background noise. By the way, the quotes they sent me for home and contents insurance were $800-$1000 higher than what I was able to get with NRMA. thanks to all who made comments. I too got a quote for budget direct today. have blocked the number before the harrassment escalates! Same here, did a search with Compare the Market, and Budget Direct was one of the results. Got a quote from compare the market, received 3 calls in 3 hours Answered the call on hold... waited 45 minutes and hung up constant calling Used Compare the Market last night to find best CTP for rego. Ive now had them call twice in the past 2 hrs. Not bloody happy! It's budget insurance Used compare the market and budget direct for insurance quotes, got several calls the very next day from this number. Definitely must be related if same thing happened to so many others, as commented above. Don't know exactly which one is the culprit, but gotta be either comparethemarket or budgetdirect. Three calls in the space of 20 minutes! Gees must be desperate to try that many times... did a quote on Compare the Market Some retarded insurance company. I filled out an online form that said "Why didn't you have insurance previous" and I put "Other" (they only had 3 other options) and they said... "Sorry we can't help you" WELL DONT f*ckING CALL ME THEN! Yes, I also started getting calls from this number after using Compare the market... the website said I wouldn't receive calls unless I checked a box to say I wanted phone contact. Which I didn't. Did a check on a number that had called whilst I was out and came across all these blogs. Yes, I contacted Compare the Market and looked at Budget's website for an insurance quote - sorry I did now as it looks like I'm going to get deluged by unwanted calls.
