    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.

    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
