I called back number (02) 9003 4366 reached voice mail for a company called meals on wheels. Meals on wheels charity telemarketer. Persistent. If I want to donate to a charity I'll do it direct. Some say this is re Meals on Wheels - a very worthy organisation. Yes, I can see the point of those complaining as, unfortunately, the organisation has to rely on making cold phone calls soliciting donations and because most people nowadays don't do anything for nothing portion of what is donated goes to the caller. Keep in mind people, that one day YOU might need this service. Just a waste of time
If people wanna donate they know where to go...

Answered and it was FUNDRAISERS MEA on behalf of "Meals on Wheels".
Did not fall into their trap. Meals on Wheels Australia is a wonderful organisation feeding a lot of our elderly who still live at home and usually on their own.. They usually advertised on TV and some ads ask for future donations. If you are passionate about this type of charity, please donate directly to them!
For example https://nswmealsonwheels.org.au/Donate/Donate-Now.aspx is the NSW "Meals on Wheels" direct donation line.
Meal on wheels cold caller. Yep... that's correct. Don't blame them if you're not happy with the legislation. Do Not Call register is for cold call advertising from businesses, not-for-profits are exempt. Missed their call,phoned back and got a message it was meals on wheels phoning about a fundraising raffle. Charity Telemarketer - bloody annoyance!!!! Now its bloody meals on wheels . Sick to death of these cold calls . gimme gimme. they just want your money and they are persistent because the seller themselves gets paid for getting you to part with your cash. I really want to be rude but i just politely decline. For how much longer i can continue to be polite is a big question. I'm guessing not very long GRRRRR! spam spam spam Caller: Presumably charity calling on behalf of Meals on Wheels
People, this is what voice mail & answering machines are for; you can use it to take a message or screen your calls if it's an unknown number, or unexpected call.
I always screen my calls so I don't have to be rude & abusive to people I don't want to talk to & then whine about it online!
I don't begrudge charities trying to fund their noble cause, I just don't have any money & don't take calls from strangers.
Tried answering and they hung up Caller: Meals on Wheels.
I am sick of getting these people asking for money. I know this a good cause. I might start up my own charity and ask people to help out a poor old "single pensioner" because our coalition government surely won't. Charity start's at home.
Caller: Meals on Wheels
They do not pay for our phones ... should not be able to ring us.
the sad part about these so called Charity Calls is that the person who rings you is getting paid ...another number I put a block on.
scammers scam Agreed! Many years ago in my 20's, when I was on the DOLE while looking for a job, I volunteered for Meals on Wheels delivering meals to the elderly who live alone and find it hard to cook for themselves etc. Meals on Wheels do a good job - I donate when I can. No need to be nasty about their cold calls, they do what they have to do to get by. I blocked this number ages ago and it's still coming through. annoying These pests will not stop calling
Certainly will NOT be donating now. Zero manners or respect for people's wishes
