Charities fundraising calls are exempt from the do not call register.. I have had this number call at least twice a day. Luckily I have caller ID and will not answer it. Hopefully one day they'll give up!! If they are only supposed to ring private numbers, why do we business owners receive so many calls?
We have had this number for over ten years and still receive calls asking for the previous person that had the number previously.
I reply he has been cremated.
Very few of the callers figure it out!
A female just rang our business and asked if we could do door knocking in our street.
I said yes, but I am required by law to pay my staff.
She replied its voluntary.
My response was I am required to pay a minimum of four hours, plus the workcover premium plus the superannuation.
As for being voluntary; if you get bitten by a dog, snake or other and are off work, Tuff luck as being a volunteer you are not covered by workcover as you are not being paid and workcover do not receive a premium.
I have just spent close to 6 minutes listening to bloody music as I want them to take us of their list, all you keep hearing is "that extension is still busy" in the end I hung up.
Apple Market Rings me I told them No thank you and weeks later there ring again. I rang them back told them that were we have Please Don't Call but that didn't work as there not include. These jokers keep ringing at about 6pm on our landline - when answered the line is blank. Cowards would not answer my call. Receiving 3 to 4 calls a day. Sick of them. How do I get (07) 5560 4900 to stop ringing me? Rang them but they don't answer. Over it want it to stop. This lot are annoyingly persistent ring 2 to 3 times a day every day. I will never answer as I can see the number on my phone. Been receiving phone calls from (07) 5560 4900 regularly for past two weeks. Usually hang up without leaving message. Tonight I answered a call and caller said he was from Heart Foundation. I do not have caller ID so was unable to tell if it was from the same number or not. I am on Do Not Call Register. How do I stop these p[eople from calling? They have a section on there contact page that reads "To be added to our Do Not Call list,
email your telephone number to:
Hopefully they actually honor this!
I unplugged my phone and now only use my lan line for the internet.. i emailed and called everyone i care for to tell them mobile phone or email only. Its been great and it gets rid of spam and most importantly phone calls from the mother in law ;) Three calls and hang ups a day is nusiance calling. They should be banned and charged with public nusiance Not just asking for money, wanted me to doorknock my whole street. Just had a call from this number asking us to door knock our street for a fundraiser.
When I explained that he had rung a business and that we send two men out with a truck and that we are to be paid for our time, he realised he had rung a business and then apologised and hung up.
The point here is quite plain, we must be on a marketing disc as telemarketers do not listen to our introduction when we answer an incoming call.
They just start their spiel!!
They keep calling, day after day, any old time. I do not answer. Will they get the message? it seems obvious that the system is testing for when they get a real answer they can then use that information to either on sell it as a valuable marketing resource or use it themselves... either way they should be stopped The lady who spoke at the phone had a clear speech and asked for volunteers to collect for Heart Foundation. She alerted me at the beginning of her speech that our conversation was registered. Is it legal ? I lately have been photographed , followed and spoken to by strangers. Now I have to be worry about to be registered and my voice copied at the telephone! I am on the Do Not Call list but receive many calls from that number. I now watch the screen and lift the receiver to connect (so they pay for the call) and then hang up without speaking to them. They usually are difficult to understand anyway. The latest call was today, July 3 2015 yes exactly, lol, I just checked my phone then and it had a missed call from them, I have now blocked there number, if you have an unknown number calling you, DO NOT answer it since then they know it is a working number, also when answering do not say 'hello, (your name) speaking' then if it is a spammer or someone you don't know, they know your name.
