Daily call roughly the same time every evening. Does not connect straight away with me saying 'hello' several times before response from their end. Usually I hang up as soon as I hear this woman's accented voice. Last night she asked to speak to Julie. Obviously fishing and picked random name with my first initial. Told her she had wrong number as no Julie here. She responded with my surname so I hung up. Will not answer this number again. Tell them to stuff spiced kebab up their arseholes ! Calls twice a day, does not give up. I have already explained that I am not interested. Have missed the last few calls but blowing a whistle down the phone is a perfect way of dealing with these rock spiders! We are also getting called by this number, usually during dinner or when trying to sleep. We are on the do not call register too. Isn't it illegal if we are on the register? Who do we report them to? Same number with the same spiel. This time I told them that I no longer worked, wasn't interested in anything they sent me and any unsolicited mail goes in the bin. They hung up so hopefully I won'tt hear from them again. Calls nearly daily and no one speaks when I answer. If enough of us report this number to Telstra, maybe we can stop them. See Mary's response. (Should be the one under mine). Thanks Mary As a Telstra customer I managed to get this caller blocked for my home phone by ringing 1800 805 996 and waiting a very long time - 20+ minutes - and advised that I understood I could get a number blocked given that the caller was harassing me. He said YES. I asked if there was a cost for this and he said because the caller was harassing me there would be no charge. So I have now blocked the above number!! I normally don't answer this number but didn't check first tonight. The usual spiel about wanting to send me some information. I told them I wasn't interested and would not read it. If I wanted information I will look for it myself and any information that I hadn't requested goes in the bin. They hung up then Very persistent - even after telling them I'm not interested a few times, they still continue to call. Now I'm familiar with the number, I dont answer it any more, but have a missed call recorded from them nearly every day. Nice one Leigh. Your response is worthy of a gold medal.
GO LEIGH !
GOLD!!! IT'S GOLD FOR LEIGH... lol Getting the same calls about a 'tax incentive' crap scam.. They wanted a meeting to discuss and help me save 50% tax. So I played along and told them 'of course' and when could they come to visit.. So I arranges a time & date this week and gave them my name (false) and address & time to call round.. The address just happens to be the address of my local 24 hour police station :) hahahaha.. Received 6 calls in two days, no-one there and no message left. Tried to call the number back but it says "this number is disconnected". Surely our big Telco's here in Australia can do something about this, it's pure harassment. Add us to list.As above.Calls mosts nights.Have put phone on slient ,check caller ID and dont pick up now if see the number. Being on the “do not call register “ hasn't stopped this nuisanse phone number from calling ! The indian asked to speak to my husband when I asked who was I talking to he said firmly that he'd like to speak to my husband. I said in an angry tone that I would like to know who I;m talking to. His reply I will ring back when your husband is available. I quickly said f#$k off before he hung up Calls constantly nearly every day, when I have picked up they hang up, they never leave a message, now that I know the number I don't answer, still annoying however. This number calls at least once every day. Thank god for caller id, so I know not to pick it up Scamming a**holes.. usual tax break offer crap.. I have an Indian man ring everyday and when I ask him to take my name off his list he is rude and says he won't as that is his job. He hangs up when I ask to speak to his supervisor. In frustration I have told him, that if he continues to ring I will blow a whistle down the phone Called us many times over the past few months. Once asked for me by name but did not wait to talk to me when my wife called me. Other times there is no one on the end, just background noise when we answer. Where do we report this nuisance?
