my number is registered with DO NOT CALL REGISTER and these people ignore it To the people who keep complaining that they keep getting several calls from this number or that they work night shift and get woken up when their sleeping or at work or at dinner etc, how about you answer the phone the first time and tell them to stop calling you and that you're not interested? They only call back because they didn't succeed the first time. Ignoring the call won't make them stop.
Charities aren't included in the Do Not Call Register, so I called the 1800 number to have my number removed - no calls since! And I haven't recieved one in over a year.
I've also discovered that their tickets have a do not call option at the bottom which means I can still go in the draw and support when I can afford it.
Oh, and I've found out that you can't call the number back because they can't take inbound calls. The call centre can only make outgoing calls so stop trying to call them back and then whinging about not being able to get through. If you really had better things to do then you'd be doing that instead of trying to call back the number so many times.
There charities. Trying to raise funds for good causes so get over yourselves and stress less
Received a missed call called back and it rang out Just call 1800 642 925 to have you lifted off their call list you do shift work and see what it is like to be woken up. FOOL. pull your head out and remember charity starts at home. I'm tired of being woken up to save the tigers or whatever. I get woken up, I cant go back to sleep and then I try to function and earn a living. And by the time i'm woken up from a deep sleep, I've missed the call, cant ring back and cant get back to sleep. put yourself in other peoples shoes. try to go through the day on 4 hours sleep.go on tosser try it Yea it is Surf Lifesaving. Yes they are a charity and I donate to them every year. Trouble is, once you buy one ticket they ring every week and i must be on multiple callers lists because i could get called by 3 different people in one week! Drives me crazy!!!!! Had a missed call on my Iphone from this number (07) 5635 4628 rang them back on the home line and it just rings out WTF and the next time I hear someone say there a telemarketer I'm going to punch them in the throat!! that will fix the pricks...... Geez.... all they did was ring your phone. Stop going on like they have killed your first born. How hard is it to answer the call and say not interested? Invertebrates!
All of you complainers have 1st world problems.
Grow a spine and have some consideration for others. These charity marketers are just trying to do their job like the rest of us.
If you really have a problem with it, complaining on this site will do nothing. You need to see your local member and petition to have the laws changed as these charities operate well within the law.
Telemarketers. Just don't answer when they call and don't call them.
Surf Life Saving QLD. Shameful.............
So yep they called me, i returned the call and it rang out, so i went to Reverse Australia, it is the first place i go when i get a call from a number i don't recognise. THX (07) 5635 4628 missed call to mobile - when call returned, the number rings out - telemarketer for charity?
if you have an iPhone you can put the number in your contacts list and block the caller
I also used to buy tickets regularly, but I am sick of being pestered by marketers. Just rang the number above only to get a message that they are not open during the week end yet their marketers can bother us on week ends. NO MORE TICKETS Missed calls from this number and when I phone back it just rings out Why does no name show up for this number on your site? They say they are charities but they are not.They are private companies raising funds for charities. Most of the money you give goes straight in their pockets. Only about 10% goes to the charity, you are better off going to a local charity and handing them a donation. Surf Lifesaving charity - hmmm the CEO was on ACA last week for spending millions on his family. I've been a member paying the monthly donation for years. They do a great job, (saved my sone once) but yes these calls for extra donations sometimes frustrate, but just be nice and say no or yes. If you do say Yes, ensure you don't give them your personal details over the phone, as they should already have them. (I follow this with all calls, just in case its a scam). You can always go online, and pay that way, e.g. http://lifesaving.com.au/ I have told them not to call but they still call won't say how they got my number next is threaten them with harassment With an iPhone you don't even need to put it in your contacts, just block it
