If you received a call from (02) 5776 1201 this was the Social Research Centre calling to invite you to participate in a study we are currently conducting on behalf of one of our clients.
The call is for social research purposes and is not a telemarketing or sales call.
sorry...but i am waaaay too busy watching Mexican drug cartel face peeling torture videos on the internet to be fuked talking to you...so drown face down in a pool of liquid camel sh*t c*nts. Blocked their number and lodged complaint. They've called me 4 times over the last week. Total invasion of privacy – I don't care if it's research or a study the Queen of Sheba. I never gave them my number, so how do they have it? I don't want the calls or interruptions, I never consented to be contacted. Clearly getting paid to call people by their client – F OFF!!! I've gotten called by this number 16 times in a month. This is ridiculous. Not to mention I'm not even old enough to take part in such a survey, so why call me? This includes how to ask them not to call you: http://www.srcentre.com.au/research-participants Is it normal to call same person non stop almost every day (and even nights nights)? I mean if somebody do not want to talk to you, why you just leave this person and not call again? There are so many people who'd potentially participate in your study, why would you follow same person for weeks and months? Caller: The Social Research Centre
Marketers exploiting a loophole in the weak "Do Not Call Register" in order to collect personal information for their clients.
to answer your question Karen here is what is stated on the 'donotcall.gov.au' website.
"It is illegal for telemarketers or fax marketers to contact people who have registered their mobile, fixed line or fax numbers with the DNCR. Under the Do Not Call Register Act 2006, some organisations – including public interest organisations are exempt. These include registered charities and social researchers"
only just found this out recently myself.
don't answer!! Told them I did not have time to take call and hung up .... 30 secs later actually called back to tell me they are not telemarketing ... like I said .... I don’t have time ... can you hear the baby crying in the background Do not reply to these idiots. Absolute spam I don't give a *@#^! if The Social Research Centre is allowed to call even if I am on the Do Not Call Register (which I am).
How about posting a message that tells us how to opt-out, as the vast majority of people posting on this site are not the slightest bit interested in participated in your time-wasting surveys........
multiple calls from this number. I don't even know my phone number so have never actually given it out to anyone. Caller: Not Sure
Called twice this week to my work extension number. Missed calls as I was in meetings. How do they even have access to this type of information. This is wrong on all levels.
These f*ckers got the number from TPG if you had any business with TPG in present or past. Caller: Research, yeah sure
At best, these are marketers after your information. Do not call register allows this loophole.
Called twice this week, what's the use of being on the no call register? Fu*ck off! This is not the number for The social Research Centre. The correct number is 02938557800. They have rang at least 7 times. Very annoying and 100% SPAM Caller: 025771201
Called three times tonight between 5pm and 7 pm also twice earlier in the week, total pain in the bum even though we don't answer, one goes to get phone and it's these creeps!
