It's a company that calls ON BEHALF of a charity - which means their staff are paid, and the charity doesn't see every cent of your donation.
These guys are effectively telemarketers - your money would be better spent actually donating to the charity itself.
Caller: (02) 8917 0011
I don't answer numbers I don't know. A legit caller would leave a message and I would respond. If I want to donate to any charity I will do so directly, not via a collection agency - if that really is their aim. I have blocked them.
I've been getting calls from this number too and as soon as I read your post about the Careflight bear comp on FB, it clicked to me that I did that as well. Same here. Checking to see if anyone is home? Same, this number keeps calling and doesn't leave a message :( Royal Institute for the deaf and blind. They don't fall into to the 'do not call' rules because they're a charity. If you were to answer a call, you can ask them not to call you, and they'll take you off their list. They're a good cause... and they help heaps of kids. Sling em' a few bucks if you can. i hate is number (02) 8917 0011 keeping bloody calling and i have blocked the number. They keep calling every day but I would not answer. Finally rang the number back at 4 AM and the recording says Royal Institute for the Deaf and Blind Children. More likely a collection agency that gives the Society 10cents for every dollar they collect.
If you want to donate direct their genuine number is (02) 9871 1233....Do not use the collection agency !!!
Caller: Care flight
Not a scam (call centre is Unity 4) primarily for legitimate donations for that company they represent Care fliight confirmed the number (02) 8917 0011 Careflight phone number (02) 9843 5100
Caller: Care flight
This seemed like a scam
I think she wanted me to say Yes...
Said I had a death in the family and was expecting a call from Sydney
They backed off immediately
Have blocked the number
Answered a call from (02) 8917 0011 but they then hung up without saying anything. Who knows who they are? I did not bother to call them back. These calls are persistent everyday. Yes I stupidly entered a FB competition for Careflight bear, not expecting to be called everyday to donate money I don't have. Caller: Care Flight
Wanting a donation
Also if you answer a call (applies more to those that try random number combos) they mark it on their system as being a genuine number and keep trying. Caller: Unity 4 not for profit organisation

Calls me 5 times a day doesn't answer when I first speak been told it's a voice recording scam . Caller: (02) 8917 0011
This is a charity collection agency. I support several charities and have donated through a collection agency before. But is stated, you are better off going to the website of the charity you wish to support and donating directly to them.
This number keeps calling and not leaving a message. really annoying! Extremely annoying, calls every day a couple of times. They said they will cancel my TFN, coincidence or not I put my phone in a competition to win the fire safe bear (something like that)
