Caller: A computer
This is a typical robocall tactic, a computer random dials numbers. If you answer & say "hello" the computer registers that it is a legit phone number then flags you for a call from a real person later. The best tactic is when you get a call from a number you do not know, answer but don't speak. The computer will think your something other than a real number and discard you from follow up. If it is a real caller let them speak first.
They ring and never he message we have on the phone or even leave a message!!!! Useless people. Caller: Robocall - auto generated
(02) 8053 9506 called this morning, picked up without answering & line hung up. Called back from a diff no. Robocall message from male aussie voice,,,,'sorry we can't take you call, you have called once of Australia's leading charity funds'..blah blah... this is a SCAM and they often mass call every couple of week.... follow Peter's advise from Jan 22 post - pick up phone & DON"T ANSWER, just listen.... if you can't block then the system will think you're not a genuine landline & potentially miss you number in the auto dialler.
Report to ACC & TIO (Telco industry Ombudsman) - this mob DO NOT STOP.
There's been a recent flood of these nuisance calls. I screen all calls and so never answer calls from the scamming pests who of course never leave a message, but I'm fed up to the back teeth with all the calls. I keep blocking the numbers that they use but my phone will only store 30 blocked numbers, so I keep having to unblock some in order to block the new ones. SICK OF IT! Please don't answer these calls. They ring, I answer, but no connection. I called back number (02) 8053 9506 rang once then goes to busy tone. Caller: Scam
Said they were BankSA, clearly not
They called 4/3, 8/3 and 9/3/21 so it went straight to my answering machine which doesn't have a message on it. Scammers generally try 3 or 4 times then give up. Caller ID is so worth having. Caller: SCAM?
Getting HUGE number of these 02 calls. Never anyone on the line. Hoping not attached to the HUGE number of scam emails we have been getting around the same time. I block after checking of this great site. Saves a lot of worrying questions.
Caller hangs up when call is answered. Scam obviously This number called me again and again 7days a week even at 7pm. I have blocked it but the calls still came in. How disgusting! Caller: Caller: says they were from Bully Zero Charity

Unknown number, I hung up without answering. Caller: says they were from Bully Zero
Did not introduce herself other than site. I checked the website and all different details compared to this number. She did not shut up, read off a script, thought she was being funny and would not take NO for answer, assuming i was gonna donate $120+ BLOCKED
