The phone number is wrong, its the phone number for Food Factory Sales in Bayswater
No message. Can't return call This number has called me 4 times in the past two days. I keep missing it. Yesterday I tried calling it back and it said it was a service which calls to inform you about charities and ask for donations.
So they called again today and I answered and then they hung up!! very annoying!
Just got a call from them now. I have answered before and it has been from the Lost Dogs Home. They go through their whole spiel and then ask for a donation. I donate $15 a month already even though I'm unemployed. They constantly ask me to up my monthly contribution and I keep saying no because I don't have a job to support it yet they don't listen and keep calling and saying it's only an extra $10 a month. Well this month I'll be cutting off my payment entirely so they will get no more from me! I have received calls from this number 2-3 times a day for the past 3 days. Today I picked up and I was told they were calling on behalf of Amnesty International. I asked that they not call again, to which the man on the line said "So, what, you never want to donate to Amnesty ever again?" I have supported the organisation in the past, but I won't tolerate being bullied into a donation. Hung up when I answered. Nuisance call. Yup, they call me every single day for the past 2 weeks. But I don't answer call from numbers I don't recognise SCAM SCAM SCAM. I stored the no. so when they call I just hang up. I have no voicemail so that helps also, lol lol. A man called me from this number saying that he is from 'WWS' (something to do with world wide solar) asking for a monthly donation for save the environment. He wants my master card number and says that the donation money will be deducted by installment. I told him I don't give out this sort of information on the phone to somebody I don't know. It is a scam! received a second missed call from them today; nobody answers the phone when you call back. Have reported to www.scamwatch.gov.au as a mobile phone scam - everybody else should do the same. same issue...also (07) 3015 4066 2 nights in a row now, rang early evening, leaves no message, I wish they would leave me alone. This person has called me asking for donation. It was definetly spam! Don't answer the call! Kept calling on behalf of plan international. stopped answering. This number is for Pareto Phone. They do telephone fundraising for charities They have been calling me too and hanging up, very annoying. I donate to a few charities so that will now have to stop unfortunately. I do not like their tactics, as they say " no good deed goes un punished" stop harassing me by ringing, like to shove the phone up your nose Rang back after heaps of missed calls on my phone (I'm a shift worker and getting harassed day and night) - goes to message bank saying they are some charity organisation. I support my chosen charities...so hounding me is not going to make me support yours. phoned me twice within a hour,felt a little suspicious just a gut feeling really espcially after i tried to phone back and had no luck, thankyou to this site i won't be answering if the call again yeap everyday this week! apparently its in regards to a charity I support (I don't) or one I have supported in the past (not that would have my mobile number). Good thing I blocked their number on my mobile so now it won't ring if it's them!!! These calls are from a marketing agency called Pareto fundraising, that is contracted to several of the larger (and reputable!) charities. I was on their database due to an Amnesty International subscription.
Their head of marketing is Clarke Vincent (at paretofundraising.com) - he is the person to contact if you wish to request and review the information they hold on you, as required under australian privacy laws. You can also request that you be taken off their contact list, I believe.
