Persistent calls. Have blocked each number, but they persist on similar numbers. It has to stop! (02) 6188 5929; (02) 6181 1512; (02) 6100 5369. Caller: (02) 6181 1512
Total scam call. If you answer or call back, they register your number as "active" and sell it on to another marketing/scam scheme. DON NOT ANSWER OR CALL BACK.
Caller: Tell Everyone & Everyone again
What people need to know is that all these calls are aided and abetted by telstra ! They have an endless bank of numbers that these people are given access to, so they just have to make the call then telstra under their agreement just allocates one of this number bank to that call and another call will have another number bank number allocated to it , this is why if you do happen to call back the connection just cuts out because you are calling a non existent number ; and telstra should be ashamed of themselves for that " Profit Over Privacy! " shame on you Telstra! The only other hang up calls you will get "are" actual numbers their the ones that let it ring just once or twice then end the call, the idea behind this is to get you to call them wondering what they wanted and by doing so you have just given them two things they can now overcome the " Do Not Call Register " as you have now phoned them and they are just returning your call ( perfectly legal ) and secondly you have just let them know that yours is an active number so they can now sell it off to a mailing list along with any details about you they have .
SO if you don't know the number and they don't leave messages "BLOCK" the lot of them and tell everyone you know to do the same.
Legitimate callers will generally always leave some form of message for you.
And to finish my rant!
Shamefully enough most of these calls come from the one company that collects for most of the well known charities and for every $1 you donate only about 3 cents to a maximum of 8 cents from that $1 goes to that actual charity the rest goes into the pockets of these annoying " Thieves "
Thanks for your time!
PS:~ TELL EVERYONE !
I had a call from 6100 5369 - Canberra ACT
Blocked this number
Now a call from 61811512 - Canberra ACT
I've read it is something to do with a competition. Never entered any.
I find it quite strange that in the past few years I've had minimal spam calls but after filling out my personal details on a declaration card flying back into Sydney on Friday that since yesterday (Monday) it's been constant. I wonder if Sydney airport has on sold our information?!?! Called by same numbers as above. (02) 6181 1512, and (02) 6100 5369.
Could be related to misleading website for "Win a Campervan" I filled out a few days ago before realising it was not the correct webpage. Luckily no bank details involved.
Scam calling, I answer but no response from the caller. I've also had calls from a nearly identical number which i have also blocked.

yet another scamming effwit.. It's a shame these people can't put their talents in to a proper job.. The more people that learn to identify these scammers and block their calls the better.. Selling or providing private information to other people or companies should be a criminal offence with mandatory jail time.. Get to it Australian Government, we're all sick of it.. Caller: Scammer
Decline and block these troublesome bastards!

It’s frustrating getting calls from the scammers who ask you to fill up to help charities to a woman who don’t even have bucks to pay for her fooding. 🤯
Caller: Taxation scam
(02) 6100 4105 Indian scammer
They just keep ringing. I will never answer and have blacklisted. This number has phoned me 3 times over the last week, I haven't answered any of their calls or returned their call. I've blocked it but still keeps calling me. Caller: (02) 6181 1512(i didn't pick up)
seems to be a scammer. got called by a similar number yesterday and have since blocked both numbers.
spam I reckon you are correct Stephen because I am getting these calls and the one that I answered asked for my husband. We couldn't work out why they would ask for him on my number, but we just realised my phone is billed under his name with Telstra! I have also been getting some dodgy text messages for him on my phone too. Caller: Random competition number
Continues to call even though I block their number and it is just a scam for entering an apparent competiton and they call through several different numbers.
twice from 1 number yesterday, once today from another of these numbers, guess I'll look forward to some more from the 3rd number :( All Canberra location. I don't answer, 1st call only message was hello, but you can here lots of other voices in the background they dont even speak English they left a voicemail by accident i assume and spoke a different language also (02) 6100 5369 has tried calling multiple times, they rarely leave voicemails and if it were important they would leave a voicemail. There just scammers. calls from this number - and also (02) 6188 5929 - (02) 8015 6983 - (02) 6181 1512 - (02) 6100 5369 - (02) 8072 4105 and this list goes on and on and on and on
Will wear my phone out soon lol = I just keep on blocking
