Call from this number, subcontinent accent said it was a senior health survey. Said no and put the phone down. Immediately re-rang and a woman this time, same story. Said No again and put the phone down. Checked the call log and between these two calls was a missed call from the same number. Calls timed at 12;33, 12:34 and 12:34. Persistant or what? Nothing since. Told we are "Do Not Call Register". Woman replied "we are not selling anything" I put our phones on this register to stop these types of calls. What is the use if they ignore our wishes? Best answer ! Slab 13 city morgue you kill them I chill them what is your address for pick up, they don't ring again !

I answered it on the 1st ring. No answer, until I almost hung it up when a foreign voice said Hello. If no-one answers when I say hello, I know it has been dialled by a computer / robot. Caller: Foreign scammers
Thank our puppet government for selling our jobs and personal details offshore. If they aren't importing the third world at our expense they are helping them bleed us dry with phone and internet scams. The joys of "diversity", in real word terms means keeping us poor and debt ridden so the tax and interest gravy train keeps rolling on for the elite.
Yes we have an answering machine so if no message is left I plug the number into search and usually they are nuisance calls so I block them. Love blocking them! returned the missed call. "The number you have called is not connected" was the response. Has anyone else noticed that these things started when Telstra in it's infinite wisdom moved services offshore? Between this rubbish and "someone from this number had a motoring accident within the last 12 months" and "please log on to your internet as I am from telstra and we notice you are having problems" I have had enough. Poo poo to you telstra. Had a call from this number from a man called Francis, conducting a survey regarding seniors health. Hope it's not a scam. He had an accent, probably from the Philipines, i would say. If they call through Skype (or similar) they can make the call look like it came from any number they want. Account set-up asks you to enter a number (can be anywhere, any number - no checks) in response to: Display this number when I call or text (SMS) mobiles and landlines from Skype. Not Telstra's fault, nor 'Do Not Call' register - the DNC relies on complaints and doesn't (indeed can't) block calls - would be no use anyway when scammers can use any number they like (see comment re Skype). Beware of this phone number.
Filipino called Jeff claiming to be doing survey for Australian Seniors Health Forum. He wouldn't say who hired him or which association the Forum belonged to, and I found trace of this forum via Google. I later discovered that 'Jeff' was hiding behind an Australian out-of-service landline phone number. Come on Telstra, put a stop to these scammers once and for all.
Probably fell for the call from a person with an accent.No info given except for names and general health
Exactly the same thing just happened to me. Filipino accent but I got sucked in. Same questions. Said she got my info from the white pages. Phone no was (08) 9497 5375 (Perth no). I too wish I'd hung up but I didn't give them any personal info. Definitely a scam of some kind as she kept validating my answers in a personal way eg "Do you have any major health problems" to which I answered no and she said "well done, keep living a healthy lifestyle". That was when the light bulb went on! I asked who the survey was being done for: answer = Australian Health and Wellness forum, a private company. Caller: Australian Health & Wellness Forum Survey
Got sucked in this time...... I usually hang up on callers with bad english/awkward accents........ they asked my 1st name (so they could address me correctly...), age, and some questions about health back pain/osteo arthritis/health insurance and retirement...... after longer than I was expecting the survey to take, they then asked me to confirm my surname, street, suburb, post code (they read it out to me....) so they wouldn't call again (and I fell for that too....) . I hadn't given any specifics (birth date etc), but they obviously (in hindsight) got enough to identify me on their list........ damn, wish I had said no & hung up....must be going soft in the head.....
P/no on my callerID list was 0198339100 which had a message to ring another no for sms/txt messages........ hope it wasn't a phishing call....... disappointed I fell for it.
Probably get lots of scam callers from now on........... JUST SAY NO & HANG UP.
Caller: A women who called herself Karel
She knew my surname and our address but didn't disclose that fact until the end of the survey. It's a bit scary when you suddenly realise they know all about you.
Caller: Scam survey?
Persistent! Thankfully new cheap home ph rings out quickly!
Called multiple times no message-blocked them Caller: The Australian Health and Wellness Forum survey
Told them as a matter of principal I do not answer questionnaire or surveys.
Asked me if I was over 50? Not trying to sell me anything!
Told caller "with accent" that I was not prepared to co-operate.
Thanked me "have a nice day"
I wonder if the owners of this phone number ever check their own phone details like this to see how many fans they have.
Yet another call claiming to be a Health Survey. After standard spiel, immediately asked if anyone here over 50. Based on other comments here, it's a scam. I'm another dissatisfied customer of the Do Not Call Register. I did not answer too late, I rang the number and this number so called not in operation. How can they use this number if it is technically not there. I feel like charging the government a GST of 25% for having to put up with this crap. This number calls but never leaves a message, from the other comments here it seems to be a scam
