I called back number (08) 6228 4013 reached voice mail for a company called Telstra Business Center. We run our own business and telemarketing calls are a real pain and time waster! Because our phones are registered as 'business lines' we cannot go on the 'do not call' register.....another pain! Most of the calls are computer generated and only connect to a sales person when you answer and hold on for quite a while.......during this pregnant pause, it is usually a good time to just hang up and forget about the call.
If private people can choose to go on a 'do not call' register, why do busy owner-operated business people have to put up with these kinds of needless interruptions that waste their precious time? Why don't we get a choice?
This number called most days and when we answered it just hangs up. Turns out (08) 6228 4013 is Telstra. If you call the number back and press "2" you can opt out of receiving the calls. Apparently it takes 30 days to process the request but fingers crossed it works! So frustrating! They try to mislead you into thinking that they are Telstra, but they are actually an on-seller. They have limited information; if they really were Telstra, they wold know my Telstra email address from my bundled account.
They are backpackers on commission in a call centre.
This number rang both my wife & self last night on our mobile numbers. When answered, there was no reply. Sounds fishy to me too.
In regards to callers on "private" numbers or overseas, I answer in my best Italian accent, telling the caller " Mr. ***** isa nota home" That gets them off the line. I also had a number of callers from solar companies, who were dispensed with by telling them " there'sa no sun here". Confused, they hang up.
I have been receiving calls from (08) 6228 4013 for the last few days and when I answer they hang up. Calls were on 16 and 22 June 2017. I have made past complaints about this number. Telstra Keeps calling and doesn't leave message. Obviously spam annoying
They will claim to be from Telstra, they will try to get you to purchase extra products you don't need. They particularly like to prey on the elderly. Unethical at best, illegal at worst. Telstra know but refuse to do anything about them.
Just block them.

they're not telstra affiliated, after my call I rang Telstra Business and was informed that they are trying to sign you over the their company, it's a scam and Telstra are aware of it. Have received a call every day at about the same time for the past 5 days. Answered the first two times and the caller hung up each time. Have refused to answer any calls since. I just thank them very much for the call, congratulate them on their persistence, ask how I can help and if they would like to buy some shares in an off shore oil drilling company. If they haven't hung up by that time I simply ask them to hold for a moment so I can attend to other calls and leave the phone by the TV so they can listen as long as they like to re runs of I Love Lucy or something similar. calls at 6pm everyday Every day this number rings and it just hangs up. Very annoying ..................... Called them back and the automatic answer was Telstra Business Centre, however when I selected to go through with my phone call, an overseas woman answered under "GSA" or something? I simply asked to be removed from the list and she said she removed me. Let's wait and see if I actually stop getting calls from them Just calls and hangs up when I realise I'm answering under a business name.. calls every fcuking day this number called me whilst I was in class and it got me into deep trouble with my teacher. as much I want to go onto the do not call list I cant and its a pain in the backside.
