I've started writing down all these annoying numbers so I can use them in the required phone field on websites like compare the market. So they can call each other 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 Got a quote from compare the market, received 3 calls in 3 hours blocked it but apparently budget direct online I called back number (07) 3327 8506 reached IVR for a company called auto & general services. And this is why I never usually use these sites, got a quote from COMPARE THE MARKET and then BUDGET DIRECT and they keep calling ... NEVER AGAIN Jumped on Compare The Market for car insurance. Clicked on Budget Direct to have a look. Within 5 minutes I'm getting phone calls from this number.
3 within an hour. Extremely annoying. Would not have gone online for a quote if I wanted to talk to someone... simple as that.
Same as above, Compare the market 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. 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.
