    Caller: Scam caller posing as Arthritis Foundation

    Tried to get me to sponsor a child for an event - when I asked how they got my details they said that they received data from the Gardiner Institute and gave a fake number. BEWARE.

    I answered and they immediately hung up. I always block numbers after I receive calls like this!

    Caller: Arthritis Foundations

    This caller is from the Arthritis Foundation and they are raising money for kids with arthritis. They take the kids and sometimes their family to the cinema. The movie is just for them and they are able to fit the wheelchairs in.
    I donate every year and it is claimable on your tax.

    Caller: Kidsflix - Juvenile Arthritis

    This is a genuine charity. Twice a year they call raising money to take kids with juvenile arthritis to the movies. They do work in different states. You can look them up on Facebook under Juvenile Arthritis Victoria, although I think the above call comes in from South Australia - but they raise money to take kids Australia wide to the movies as a break from their often restricted lives. On their Fb website it says "if you require further information:
    Email: kidsflix @ arthritissa.org.au
    Phone: (08) 8423 0949"

    These are genuine calls, however, they're nuanced calls. Hence why people report them here. This site isn't specifically for complaints, it's so people can find out who is calling them.

    This scammer has called me 6 times today so far. I blocked their number and immediately they used a different number. I am on the Do Not Call register.

    Caller: A criminal organisation masquerading as a charity.

    Calls as a different charity each time in a vain and hopeless attempt to get your credit card details to be used fraudulently at a later date. Talk to them at your own peril.

    I totally understand they're genuine, however, calling me 3 times in 1 week... This is becoming a nuance call.

    Caller: They refused to say and hung up.

    If they are legitimate, they are losing business by hanging up on people and by not leaving a message. ANY ONE... EVEN MY FRIENDS... that call and refuse to leave a message, DO NOT GET A CALL BACK. THAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A MESSAGE MACHINE. Additionally, if they are supposedly (and this one was) a boiler room doing contract work, they are ripping off the folks they are working for.

    They say they are from some Arthritis Foundation. I have told them to stop calling me and have even blocked their number but they still call even though blocked.

    I dont believe anyone that calls me from an unknown or private number these days. There are too many scams about!!!
