Research Company doing phone interviews about local government Caller: The so called "legitimate Research Company"
While they may be a "legitimate Research Company", Local Councils aren't useful and helpful.
As has been shown in the media, all of those Councils and related Local Government entities that have been investigated for cause, have been shown to be either incompetent and/or corrupt.
As for having a say, unless you agree with the current group think of the Bully class that owns and runs these Councils, then the last thing they tend to do, based on clear empirical evidence, over many decades, is to assist their local constituents for the good of all.
All Australian councils should be locally and regionally amalgamated, politicians and related Grievance Mongers and Carpet Baggers removed from the Management structure/Positions of authority and the trimmed down organisation should be given a clearly written set of tasks to return to their basic function.
A. Be responsible for economical Waste removal.
B. Fix your local Roads and related infrastructure in a cost effective manner.
C Be subject to random or ongoing audits of their Finances and Outcomes.
I don't care for, as most other Australians don't care for, for these predominantly corrupt and/or incompetent Kletopcrats enabling others in making excuses to waste time, resources and my forced ever increasing hard earned income to be deprived in the form of "payments" to these self serving grubs.
So, no, I don't welcome these rude self serving calls and neither should anybody else.
Research about local council which I had agreed to do previously Caller: My local council
Doing a survey for local council for people between 18-34 (I think). I had agreed for them to call me previously.
Caller: ~rDisp4 (02) 4355 9760
The caller took long time to say hello, and when I asked where she was calling from, she told me couple of times but I couldn't comprehend. I asked what it was about and she just hung up.
Caller: (02) 4355 9760
Calls about taking a survey. Claims I gave them my number which I never did. Blocked instantly.
Wanted to talk to people in specific age group. Told them I couldn't help. Company is a legitimate Research Company contracted by Local Government Councils. They conduct several different types of surveys but the main one is a community survey that asks for your importance and satisfaction of the various services and facilities provided by your local government. It is your chance to have a say on what is provided by your Council and to scorecard what they do for you in your local area. You are providing feedback on what happens in your local area so crap about research company blah blah blah I am on the "do not call" register but it obviously makes no difference. This is the third time this number has called. I never answer, but let it ring out. I then check it on this Reverse Directory. Here is a hint: if you get a call on your mobile from companies like this just tell them you are driving at present. They a legally bound to NOT continue the call, but must hang up immediately. Worth a try, eh! Spoof caller. Scammers Caller: Male voice, stated a name and purpose
The caller stated their name and purpose for the call. The caller failed to substantiate any truth. I advised the caller that I am not interested.
I like some of the previous comments "just send me money".
Missed a couple of calls from this number, after I had agreed to be called by the local council (signed up the day before the calls started). Seems legit based on other people saying it's a council thing. As usual, calls and then not a legit phone number when you call back. Unsolicited call from Research Company.
Should be fined.

might be "legitimate" but still an unwanted call, if you respond you will get more calls . . . . . . . .
I received a phone call 16th March 2019 on my landline and they hung up without leaving any message, which is an absolute pain, so I returned a call and an answering machine suggested that there was no one available to answer a call so leave a message.
This type of "prank call" should be outlawed and the operator forced to pay a heavy fine.
