Seriously if legislation was put in to permanently ban (or heavily fine to permit reinstatment) the international phone companies who facilitate these sort of scams by allow their customers entry to connect to the Australian networks with Australian ids this problem would go away really quickly.
So far been called repeatedly by the same scammers on:
(02) 6100 5368
(02) 6181 1511
(02) 6188 5928
Caller: Brand Choice
These people use many different numbers when calling and they all say they are from Brand Choice
Have had 3 calls from this and other similar numbers, all showing up as from Canberra, Australia. Have read comments from other contributors that these calls are scam and they are aggressive and persistent . Have blocked every number, but they come up with another to ring me. I don't answer any call from a number I don't recognise. If people want to talk to me & I miss their call, the can leave a message & 100% of the time, if it's telemarketing, charity or scam, a message is never left. Caller: I don’t know
Am getting tons of spam calls after entering my details on Smith’s Chips competition wheel on back of their packs! Not happy!
These idiots are pissing me off Started calling me around the time I started receiving malicious spam SMS messages. Treat with caution. Caller: Brands of Choice
Like others have said they call from multiple numbers. Will call multiple times a day if you don’t answer. Very frustrating
Calling every day and night. It shows on my phone as potential fraud, so I don't answer and block the number. Then I'm called the next day from a different number, but the phone displays the same fraud message. I don't trust them. Caller: (02) 6100 5368
They call in the middle of the night
Caller: Brand of Choice
Scammers they keep calling on different numbers I hang up and keep blocking them

Yes, a thorough pain in the rear end. Five calls from Canberra in recent days. All you can do is block them. Surely they'll run out of phone numbers in the end! Or wishful thinking on my part I am constantly getting calls from different numbers as well but they all say they are from Canberra. I don’t answer but it’s incredibly annoying receiving 5 calls a day from them! Have had calls from the same 3 numbers over the last 2 days Caller: scam
I agree totally Phil- I have been getting calls from the same numbers as you for the last week- I block one and then they use another number.
another scammer Caller: (02) 6100 5368
I concur with everything above person said!
This is like a bad disease!
Annoying, dangerous and all not good!
He said (accented voice) "Hello is that (my first name)"
I said "Ye ..." A fog horn sound comes straight into my ear.
Just like everyone above, I am getting constant calls from these numbers...
I am ill and I really don't need this crap, they call day and Night ! You block one number and they call from a different one.
Yesterday was Ridiculous, they rang 10+ times and kept disturbing my rest time.
It is really pissing me off to the Max! Even if you ask them not to ring back, they don't listen and just try another number.
Block them all!!!
Very annoying I am in grief period and all of the sudden I gonna receive this kind of call... every single days they using different numbers.. we need help scammers
