Scammer called 5.21pm Thursday 20 May 2021
No messaged from caller left
It's a healthcare recruitment company who take info from some online healthcare platform and use it to source potential candidates.
Annoying Rat Bags I will block them ! Thankyou Caller: Charity Survey
The caller stated that the company was doing marketing surveys for charities to find out how they were viewed by the public. She asked me if I would consent to finding out how I viewed specific charities from a list (would donate, may donate, would not donate).
I specifically asked her if my personal details (name, phone number etc) would be passed along to any charities for them to call me later and ask for money. She stated that nothing would be passed along to the charities about me. So I did the survey.
Within 5 days of doing the survey I started getting phone calls from the charities that I was asked about asking for me by name. I told each one of these charities that I since they got my information from a deceptive marketing company that I would not donate anything to them no matter the cause. I stated that they should contact their survey company about their deceptive marketing practices and not use them in any future marketing.
I said that I give my money anonymously to charities specifically to avoid letters and calls from charities asking for money that I do not want to give money to. All that happens with charities that you give your information to when donating is that they pass it along to other charities who then call you asking for money.
2 calls this Saturday morning before 10 am. No msg left. Read the post here from 2018, so I can only assume not much has changed in 3 years. I am now of the firm belief that if an audio msg has not been left, there is nothing to be gained by calling back. Smells of a scam because the CID number shown is NOT IN SERVICE! Caller: My friends from India
Always happy to get a call from India, makes me feel important. They hang up when I start asking about the weather in India. How rude
Keeps ringing, but never leaves a message. No message = Scam Caller: Asian female

Caller failed to speak or leave a message after my answering machine advised that the call was being monitored by Telstra. I've now blocked the number Caller: Charity Choice
Automated robot recording that sounds very real at first!
Scammer, Another number blocked Caller: Robo-dialler
Two calls in 3 days from east coast number to me in WA after 5pm local?! That just reeks of either some BS scam and/or "charity". Either way, they're time wasters.
2nd call in 2 days just ring and hang up never a message Unsolicited call. Scammers Caller: Some call centre
Said they were calling on behalf of some sort of charity collection; they did not like it when I said no thank you, I was not interested.
