They call about serveys on various topics Computer generated question / response survey re Federal election.
Hung up and blocked their number.
So much for the do not call register.
4 Calls from this number in the space of 40 minutes - all between 6pm and 7pm. Not Happy! We got 2 calls from this number the other night - computerised voice conducting research - We have an election in WA on 9/3/13 - wanted to know what we knew about our local candidate - had to respond by pressing 1, 2 or 3 - not sure who was behind the poll - the info we gave won't help them tho - gave conflicting responses - suspect the ALP was behind it - sick of these so-n-so's wasting working families tax on this stuff -BTW - we have an unlisted No, and we are silent voters and on the do-not-call register. The rules obviously don't apply to them Unfortunately the Do Not Call register doesn't extend to "research" or political parties, so this one is a double-whammy.
There's a petition at Choice Magazine's website to extend the coverage of the DNCR ... please add your name :)
Got two calls from this number on 17 September 2016, within an hour. When they didn't leave a message I knew something was up. Have blocked this caller. Just got the automated call and hung up.
It's reachtel and they claim that the do not call register doesn't apply to them:
"The Do Not Call Register covers calls that are intended to advertise or promote goods or services and the Act has specific exemptions that allows market research calls. The ACMA website has more information on the specific exemptions:
They do have an opt out option https://www.reachtel.com.au/do-not-call but I just added the number to my blocked caller list - easier and faster.
They keep calling at tea time
and do not leave a message. This is so annoying. I will not answer, ever!
This number called claiming to be a Microsoft representative to fix an issue.
Instantly told them they were spammers and hung up on them - typical hacking spam.
This idiot number calls, my dinner is interrupted i answer the call &..... NOTHING. Silence. If this is meant to be a market research company so be it but I do not tolerate silence when I've made the effort to answer. Just stupid Got a call which was a computer voice wanting responses to survey. I hung up and called back on my work phone, which said something like:
"Thank you for returning our call.
Reachtel conducts surveys on a range of topics and we called to get your thoughts. If we didn't speak to you we may call you back.
For more information call 1800 427 706, or write to use at PO BOX 3162 South Brisbane BC 4101"
Whoever is paying for this survey data better expect utter garbage results!
Really starting to get fed up with these calls.. this number called me twice last night but have had similar numbers ring me nearly every night numerous times.. it’s been going on for weeks if not months
I’m at my wits end and not sure what else to do apart from change my number which I don’t want to do..
We are in a seat that is about to have a by election because we had a liar as our MP, he jumped ship before they expelled him . On the same night he resigned the phantom computer generated calls commenced. Typical moron political parties harass people in the early evening to gauge their upcoming polls Political "survey", they keep trying but filing to get through as I have blocked them automated call regarding politics called today about a survey about credit use. automated message I hung up Once again, dinner time, robot call, We are on so called do not disturb, Pollies are the worst offenders. So much for my privacy. Ombusdman (mispel delibarately) step in please, get rid of these rats.investing the right, to not receive these calls, over and over again. Had a call from this number it only rang twice then they hung up. After reading messages above I will just block it - they rang on my mobile. if the number looks weird enough I just do not answer it. if the call/er is meritorious enough s/he will leave a message. If not then one has saved themselves some time at the (very) least. Rang about 08.30 pm last night, the answering machine answered the call, they just hang up would assume another scam and secondly I do not do surveys by phone, who ever is behind all this just wasting it's time and other people.
