Has called a number of times over the last week
I ABSOLUTELY REFUSE to answer any number that is not in my Phone Book.
I just really want to know how thaey got my number. I am very very careful not to advertise my number.
They are a survey company, when they rang me they were representing tourism Australia. I answered the questions, which weren't personal in nature, and gave plenty of opportunity to not answer if not comfortable. These people have a job to do. Not exactly a scam.......
If they are a genuine survey company, why don’t they leave a message identifying themselves when the call is unanswered?? They are persistent. I’ve been called about 5 times in a week. You wouldn't believe it i had the same issue. I got a call from this number and it was inconvenient as i was balls deep in the missus and didn't want to miss the Golden stroke which was "cuming" up fast....... Rang twice on different days and didn't leave a message Rang on three occasions through the day and once again at 7.30pm. Doesn’t leave a message. I called the number back and says it’s Engine market research Caller: (02) 8912 5632
Called me after 8 at night!!! Bloody annoying... they would’ve copped it if they had woken up my baby
Had a missed call from this number. No message left and the number is not known to me - I live in Victoria. The number is NSW number. Didn't ring back. Caller: Not known
Called at 16:10 hrs on Sunday afternoon. Did not answer and no message left. Obviously not a legit business communication. 'Do Not Call' register is more like a list of 'call these suckers'.
Engine market research
Really? These people are not a problem? If they are legitimate, then they should leave a message and explain why they are calling. Incredibly rude. I don't know who the hell they are but they phoned me after 8pm of a week night. I do NOT want people calling me. And how did they get my number? WT... Caller: No Idea
They have been calling me for the past few weeks. I never answer the call since they are usually scammers or hackers.
Caller: Engine Research
My (mobile) number was picked at random
Caller was upfront for reason for call (Survey)
Did the survey on scam calls etc.
Able to 'pass' on answering specific questions.
Caller very pleasent and professional.
these companies use random phone number generators to decide who to call, thats how they got yours. also, as it's a survey company (not a charity or salesperson) the do not call list does not apply to them, the only way to get off the company's list is to answer the call and ask them to take you off it Keeps calling in evening around dinner time and hangs up when I answer. Caller: Says its a survey
They have called me twice already
This number rings my mobile EVERY DAY about 5.30pm. My mobile and landline phone numbers are silent numbers, so I've NO idea how they got them. I've silenced this number so I don't get distracted by their unnecessary calls, but it's still REALLY annoying as it comes up as a missed call. What's the point of being on the "do not call" register? I refuse to answer calls from people who aren't in my contacts list. If I want their service, I'll call them. This number keeps calling me. Never leaves a message. I've even blocked them...... yet they still keep trying.
Not a survey at all they just pure scammers block these pests
