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.

Caller: Asian female
Says calling from research international. Kept talking over me til I told her to shut up!
Annoying Rat Bags I will block them ! Thankyou I pick up without speaking, within 2 seconds the call ends 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. Caller number unknown did not pick up but answering machine did and of course they do not leave a message checked the number on this site thank you for the info.
If a friend or known contact they would have left a message. Hate the scammy people.
Caller: Some indian
Filthy indian scammer
Caller: Survey Republic
They are a lead generator and marketing company who do a survey to collect your interest in supporting charities. They work hard to say that it’s just a survey but other people have verified that if you confirm your details you are then passed onto the charities as a lead. I told them I’ll answer no to all questions and don’t wish to be contacted. So we’ll see what happens. https://surveyrepublic.org/

Not a robot, but spam nonetheless
A foreign person ringing in regard to a survey about charities.
