I have had 6 missed calls from (02) 6181 1501 at all random hours of the day and night when I called them back I was told I had entered a competition and they where calling to do a survey of my life style, and they needed me to agree to other marketing company's calling me. When I said I worked shift work and all the calls have been waking me up. She hung up the phone. From Canberra & they have called on 3 numbers now 61885917, 61811501 and 61885918. Would definitely be scammers. BLOCK! OK, so I fell for a competition that was sent to me because it looked like it was being run by Qantas. Big mistake. You had to answer two or three questions - provide name, email address and phone number - to enter but once you tried to enter it kept asking for more and more information including income. Obviously at this point I stopped, but the damage was done. These bastards have my phone number and will not give up.
I'm actually angrier about the bullsh*t competition entry form with layers and layers of misleading entreaties to provide information than the phone calls.
I have made it a habit to not answer any calls from a number I don't have in my address book.If they don't leave a message I block them immediately especially if they are listed on this website. Pity I can't do the same with No Caller ID calls It's a scam - harvesting information to sell to marketing companies so you can get lots more pointless calls - once you start getting calls from this number you basically have to change your phone number because you will be getting bombarded with scumbags phoning you claiming that you "requested further information" about some crap that they are selling. Played music to them,had obvious Manila sounding bloke say “what sh#t Aussie music” and hung up.obviosly not Aussie As was playing Paul kelly dumb things. Caller: Scammer
Anyone who is receiving calls from this number should know that the VoIP provider is www.symbionetworks.com and you can check for a numbers VoIP provider here https://www.thenumberingsystem.com.au/#/number-register/search . I suggest we all call Symbio Networks each time we get a scam call from one of their VoIP customers and then maybe Symbio Networks will do something. Symbio Networks number is 1300 789 653. You must realize that Symbio Networks gets paid by the scammers that use their service and this is the reason Symbio Networks appear to be providing a safe haven to scammers.
Didn't answer these phone calls - thought I'd check on google to see where this number led to and voila' marketing crap!!!!! Thank goodness I did not answer - BLOCK!!!!! They called to tell me I had recently completed a survey and that I could go into the draw to win an overseas holiday if I just answered some questions for them. I've had these calls in the past and I'll answer a bunch of questions and then they'll inform me that I don't match the criteria to enter the draw. It happens every time so I'm convinced they're just collecting information for a survey. It's such a massive waste of my time. 2 missed calls today from this number. Left a voicemail but they didn't say anything and there was no background noise at all. These fockers need to be tracked down and penalised for invasion of privacy and then billed for peoples stress and time!!
Its not just one phone number,either. Where do they get our numbers from in the first place? I haven't answered any of them and continually need to block these idiots. Friggin sick and friggin tired of the FOCKERS
Can government stop all these idiots. Ditto to Anonymous above. Except mine said it was a competition for Aldi Caller: Brand of choice
I'm on the do not call register and find my self lodging a complaint each day for the past 5 days, BRAND OF CHOICE ringing from a new number each time. So sick of them. Will continue to lodge complaints on Gov websites. Is there anything that can be done to stop this.
Have blocked (02) 6181 1501 and (02) 6181 1501 called yesterday and today at approx the same time Caller: Brand Select
About an online comp I entered (which I did not), wanted me to confirm my name. No way do you say yes to these people, because once you do, that yes then gets provided to all others companies you saying yes. Got the sh*ts when I wouldn't say yes and hung up
trying to sell sh*t BLOCK I fell for that too. I thought it was a product testing website.
Don't fall for it people!
Caller: Crap call
Can’t speak decent English but an Indian person said I entered a competition when I said I never did and would never use my work phone they argued you did mam. Mam arghhhh I just hung up
I got the same callers and got them pissed off by telling them to pay for my ATO bill or I will deport them then they hang up
