Call on behalf of charities. I already donate to charities.This is a business making money by making nuisance calls. They should be made to abide by the Do Not Call Register. I blocked them. They would hang up when I would pick up. So now I typed in contacts scammer. So when scammer comes up I won’t answer. And I will keep doing it when they change there numbers all the time. Because my block caller list is full. After several calls from this number over the past couple of weeks, there was finally someone on the other end. It was a call on behalf of a charity, asking us to collect locally for them. Seems legit, but ignoring the "do not call" register and not happy and very wary of them. They call the land line, I don't answer, so they call the mobile, I don't answer. Someone somewhere has obviously shared a database of personal information with this rogue group. Caller: NO ANSWER.

NO ANSWER. ANNOYING TIME WASTER
Another charity ! A few years ago a major charity was investigated and it was found that 80% of donations went to "administration costs", in other words, to pay lucrative salaries to the charity organisers. When challenged, this charity moved its base to Singapore and claimed that all donations went overseas. Make enquiries and be very careful before you support any charity, definitely do not support this kind of phone call. It is that beyond a joke with the TELCOS it's a damn crime!!! For god sake do something about these calls. They can stop them, they are just to GREEDY, and us , the consumer have to put up with and be ripped off by these B""stards. Was out when called, no message left. I don't answer my landline now as only scam calls. Caller: Charity Fundraising Specialist
still calling as at 4/5/19 & also using (07) 5657 9008
Doubt they are legit if they are asking you to collect for them.
I've heard of charities trying to get you to sell raffle tickets for them.
But I suspect it is ILLEGAL for a charity (or ANY business) to collect for them without due process (vetting you and or providing safeguards, and/or covering any other legal obligations)
Caller: Salvation Army
Asked me to help with doorknocking for their appeal, I said I couldn't help, but they wouldn't take no for an answer. Ended up hanging up.
I don't live in the 07 area code. I live in NSW. My business is blocking overseas numbers and any number starting with 07 as they are all scum and don't want my business, just my hard earned money. My call blocker blocks all numbers beginning with 028 and 038. Surprisingly I have very little annoying calls now, and it's sheer delight when my phone gives just ONE ring and yet another telescummer gets charged for the call as the blocker loops the line. It's so rewarding.
got sick of it so I don't answer the phone at all now. Yes they are Apparently charities are exempt from the do not call register. Apparently. Received call last week. Did not answer Caller: apple marketing group
Hangs up when you answer and keeps calling. I called the number back. Apple Marketing Group. Fundraising for charities.
Caller: Apple Marketing Group
Apple Marketing Group, making money out of selling charity. It is about time charity telemarketers were taken off the exemption list for the Do Not Call Register. I have no way of knowing who they really are and no time for calls at odd hours. I simply hang up on them - EVERY time.
Calling every day - they hang up immediately Number called and didn't leave a message. Rang back and got voice mail for Apple Charities.
