If you are a Telstra landline customer & want to block nuisance calls, you now have the option of buying a phone from the Telstra Shop that can do this. The phone itself costs $48 and is well worth the investment. Numbers you BLOCK will hear the following message; CALLS TO THIS NUMBER ARE BEING MONITORED BY TELSTRA GUARDIAN; THE PERSON YOU ARE TRYING TO CONTACT IS NOT ACCEPTING YOUR CALLS, SO PLEASE HANG UP.
People you place in your contacts list will get through as usual but anyone with a private / withheld number or a number that is not in your contacts list will hear this message; CALLS TO THIS NUMBER ARE BEING MONITORED BY TELSTRA GUARDIAN; PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND THEN PRESS # AND WE WILL CONNECT YOUR CALL. You will then have the option of either accepting or rejecting the call.
This number is also Matter Lotteries trying to sell tickets in another one of the lotteries that they have 6 calls in 8 days. And now one at 7:29pm, this is ridiculous. It is the mater prize home, I think these people work from home. I already buy to tickets each month and I think it's extremely rude that they constantly pester you to buy more! I received a missed call from this number today (26/04/2016), I got home from work and noticed the missed call. So I googled it and found this page. Thanks guys, I won't be calling this number back. This is their contact no. (07) 3163 8000
You can call them and ask to delete your no from their database.
missed call , no message left rang back twice rang out no answer , how do I report thisw Congratulations Mater Prize Home management. Because of your greed at trying to obtain further money from people already considered VIP lottery supporters you have now lost my monthly contribution for good. Unbelievably rang my home daily for over a week. Find another way to fund raise. Rather than pestering people who already were regular contributors. I have auto ticket purchase every month but if they continually call me to purchase more tickets I will be cancelling and supporting someone else. 7 calls from this number in past 10 days Mater lotteries - already a customer but still get these calls for more donations. Poor form Called me 8 times in a row today!! Seriously these people should be fukin SHOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This number called..I missed it...so now I have found out who it is I have 'BLOCKED it on my mobile as I do with any calls that I find to be a nuisance call. just received another call from this number, but they claimed it was collected for the CFS not Mater this time They call you then hang up. You call them, they don't answer! Yes we are getting a bit sick of them calling both of us too. We also already support them but they still want more. I called back number (07) 5680 9941 just kept on ringing no one answered the call and never got any voice mail. I signed up as a VIP only because they told me I would not receive any phone calls - of course I did - apparently being a VIP still means you get the ph calls. I also unsuscribed and complained. Dodgy practices. rot in hell
filthy evil greedy lying a-holes
I get missed calls from this number approx every second day and they never answer when I call back. Now I know it's Mater trying to suck extra $ out of me I'm going to cancel my monthly contributions. It's very low on their behalf! this number has call so many times asking for my card details. WHO GIVES CREDIT CARD DETAILS IN 21ST CENTURY?? Even without the 3 numbers in the back is dangerous. If its a charity FOR REAL they should do what everybody does, go to the street and prove it STOP BOTHERING PEOPLE BY PHONE
