    This caller (07) 5480 1369, is a scammer and they have nothing to do with the Rural Fire Brigade, or any other association, its a scam.

    People, people... gosh! Take a deep breath =)

    Rural Fire Brigades Association of Queensland - they raise funds for all the volunteer rural fire fighters throughout Qld.
    Why? Because, unlike every other state in Australia, the Qld Govt does not fully fund the rural fire brigade. The only way the bush firies can get money to pay for trucks, fuel, safety equipment etc etc is to FUND RAISE.
    See those blokes out there on Christmas Day battling enormous bushfires? They're not getting paid for that. That truck they're driving? They had to raise most of the money for that themselves. The fuel that they put in it? Probably came out of their own pockets.

    FYI!!! Charities are exempt from the Government Do Not Call Register. If you don't want them to call, just *ask* them. They'll take you off their lists...

    And if you don't want charities to every ring you, why not get stuck into the Government for not fully funding essential services, rather than take it out on someone wanting to help their community ;)

    Have just talked to the nice lady at the RFB headquarter on (07) 4580 1300 and she has taken me off their call list. It is the brigade doing their own fundraising, but the system they purchased has problems. They are changing to a new system shortly and hopefully this will get rid of the "overload calls" where no operator is ready to talk when the computer dials. She understands that I would rather help the local brigade with practical assistance and/or buy meat tray raffle tickets at the local pub to assist with fundraising as it is face to face.

    I have my mobile phone number on "DO NOT CALL REGISTER" Does this not matter at all????? I have heaps of calls from (07) 5512 7800 and (07) 5480 1369.
    As far as I know they are not a CHARITY and I don not want to receive their calls. What is a food manufacturing business making cold calls for????

    Regardless of who they are or what they do , harassing people is not acceptable.

    This is the 3rd number they have rang me from that I have now blocked. I wish the DNC register applied to charities too.

    Seeing as I live in FNQ - I would prefer to donate to my local fire brigade and not the fire brigade in SEQLD. And even in saying that, why does this charity - out of all the other charities - do they constantly phone and then hang-up? I've tried contacting them to say I do not want to donate to them and all goes quiet for a few months but then the constant harrasment of calls start up again. If this is a legit charity - use a better (and friendlier) call service to ask for donations. You catch more flies with honey than vinegar ... as they say.

    We gave them a donation once. The local Bush Fire Brigade is the ones that I suport.
    We told them not to bother phoning us, because they would not arrive if we had a fire. The local Brigade would.

    They constantly ring my home phone and hang up not leaving a message. I have to check from work (I get notified if there is a home message) in case it is about my elderly mother ... its annoying.

    If a business cannot have a registered name, address whatever picked up when number is checked. to me is a scammer. I don't care what the person does they need top have a legit. Name...Phone Number...Address... easily found on Google & White Pages. I have been scammed for $3500 on a web site stating they were in Sydney but had a false virtual office only. Not good enough in todays "computer world".

    They get snotty if you tell them that your not interested. If i was going to donate to a charity i defineatly would not do it over the phone i would do it in person or by mail to registered mailing address do not respond to these even if they are collecting for the so called rural fire brigade they would be keep 80 to 90% of the money as so called adminstration fees so if you feel so strongly about donating do it personally and not through these blood suckers
