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.......
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.
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. Caller: Engine
Conducting a survey on travel from Tourism Research Australia, numbers found by random digit dialling. Easy quick survey.
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: (02) 8912 5632
Called me after 8 at night!!! Bloody annoying... they would’ve copped it if they had woken up my baby
Rang twice on different days and didn't leave a message 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'.
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: Engine
Engine market research
If I don’t recognize the number, I don’t answer, it goes to voice mail. If they don’t leave message then it wasn’t important to them either. Now the number is blocked. What happened to the DO NOT CALL REGISTER !! 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.
Keeps calling in evening around dinner time and hangs up when I answer. gAVE MY BAK ACCOUNT DETAILS AND PASSWORD, THEY WERE VERY FRIENDLY AND HAPPY WITH MY RESPONSES Don't appreciate being called at 9pm, piss off Call and hang up, do not leave a message. Checked the number on line and found its a survey company that wants your personal information and about your ifestyle. Block this number, cold calling is intrusive and unwelcome 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
