    Rang once. Just as expected with these kinds of insincere callers, no message was left. Hopefully they won't call again, but they have recently pestered me from another of their numbers (03) 8554 1115. Goodness knows how many numbers they use to pierce people orf. They can P.O.P. (Pierce Orf Permanently). Are they trying to be a'holes, or does it just come naturally? ;-)

    Apple marketing rings on behalf of many charitable organizations, the auto dialer can take up to 10 seconds to connect you to an operator, they are just hard working aussies trying to get by on minimum wage and they all have to work to a quota, so they need to get about 5 sales an hour to keep their jobs.

    charities are exempt from the do not call list, and if it is not a private number, it probably wasnt 15 years ago when Mr chang from timbucktoo had it

    when they have called me in the past the way to do it is to give a false address (some one you hate that lives across town, and then a random name, then say "yes" id love to get some raffle tickets, but dont give them a bloody credit card, tell them to send an invoice, but then tell them that this is a once off, and that you want to be taken off of the apple marketing call list, this way the person actually gets paid, and you also get them to stop ringing you forever, if you just hang up, or say no, that does not get them to stop calling

    Its a charity collection group, unfortunately they "reward" those that donate by pestering them 1000 times more often.
    I cannot confirm if this works but

    from there website

    To be added to our Do Not Call list,
    email your telephone number to:

    Apple Marketing do telemarketing for all sorts of businesses. Unfortunately they are a 'charitable organisation' which exempts them from adhering to the ACMA (Aus Govt) Do Not Call register.

    They instead have an internal DNC list. Email:

    dnc [at] applemarketing [dot] com [dot] au

    with your number and they will remove your number from their listings "within 3 business days."

    Apple Marketing Group are a private company who are a profit making entity located and based in two locations being Melbourne VIC & Southport QLD. They sell raffle tickets and they recruit volunteer door knockers by calling private home land lines morning and evening on behalf of household name charities. Essentially, the charities themselves are exempt from the Do Not Call register but this Apple Marketing Group is not a charity. Every volunteer they register equals an invoice for them to bill to the charity and this is how they make their profit for themselves by signing up volunteers and by selling raffle tickets to the general public.

    I have a nasty ex, and was afraid this was him. The number rang me, and when I answered, listened and then hung up.

    Based advice from this website, I rang the number, and pressed 2 for customer service. I spoke to a very nice, well-spoken man and very politely explained that the phone calls from this number are regarded by us as nothing more than nuisance phone calls, because we do not give to charities who ring up, unsolicited. He was very apologetic, took my number, and advised that it will be taken off their list. It took no more than 2 minutes to do (perhaps I was lucky getting through so quickly). These people are a legitimate company, who I think are paid by charities to ring around businesses. Having said that, however, the girl who rang me this morning, from this number, (after I explained that we don't give to charities who ring up unsolicited) said she wasn't going to ask for money! Not sure why she was ringing then!! Looked up this website, and found, I was indeed correct to politely end the call with her. I explained to the customer service man that businesses get these phone calls ALL THE TIME, and we cannot get any work done. Not sure if it made a difference; nuisance phone calls have become the new normal. Perhaps if enough of us ring the problem numbers and complain, it may make a small difference(?) Good luck everyone.

    Just had a call from this number for the 3 time in a week. Hang up when I picked up. This is an offense under the Telecommunications Act. Go straight to the Police.

    Yes they are a fund raising organization, with is not a direct charity. They ARE Required to honor DNCR and are actually telemarketers. The employees do get paid and were does this money come from? Yes your donations! So stop giving to these people, which will make it not worth the while to operate.

    They got your number from the "Apple Market Residential Listing" Those numbers where compiled several years ago and may have belonged to someone else before you or may have been added before you became a part of the DNC register or before you where listed as a silent number. They are a legitimate business but the reason their staff are so horrible sometimes is because of the management. The staff get treated like sh*t, and can be fired at any minute for anything. Everything they do and stand for (Apart from the charities) is absolute crap. I have a friend who used to work for them and she got fired because she was upset about a call she had made and was told "Maybe your not right for this job" she also watched another staff member who was stressed talk to their manager and was told "stress isnt a real thing its all in your head"

    These f**kers need to be brought down.. there has to be a flaw somewhere!

    OMG, it's 8pm on a Friday night again. From now on I will never again donate anything to any organisation that uses this company. I am sick of their phone calls and have posted my decision on each charities Facebook page. Why would anyone support a cause that annoys the s#%& out of it's supporters.

    Here's the hot tip Harmony, ringing a phone number up to 6 times a day will NOT make people any more likely to donate to any charity. In fact once I see that many calls from the same number I know it is a telemarketing call and I will NEVER answer it. So regardless of what good work the charities might do, these nuisance call TOTALLY undermine that

    They do have a Facebook page, so if you are being harassed or abused don't be shy about posting a comment...

    Over these so called charity groups. Most of them are scams anyway. If I wanted to donate I would call them, I can hardly pay my own bills and feed my family . I don't need these vermon on my phone 24hrs a day annoying me. Go harass the millionaires not the working person on the lower side of earning a income

    has anyone ever heard of anyone winning a raffle organised by apple marketing group. I think there should be a government inquiry to find out if people are actually winning anything and what percentage of the money is going to charity
