spam soliciting donations block Caller: Rural Fire Services via a call centre
It is a call centre who make money out of fundraising for charities. An auto telephone dialler makes the call not a person thus the cut off if you do not answer in a given time even though you might have answered your phone. It is sad that groups like Rural Fire Services have to resort to this whilst politicians squander our taxes on themselves, surveys for same sex marriage and tax breaks for banks and business like Adani Coal to wreck the Great Barrier Reef.

Best to support RFS direct. Even if they are legitimite fundraisers for the RFS they get to keep most of the money- Go direct to you local RFS and give. Want you to donate money to something. wont take no for an answer!! Caller: (02) 9094 2438
I'm looking for an easy way to block this caller, and similar ones, on a land line. I mean easier than going through Telstra unwelcome calls. Can you advise? Thanks
Along constantly I have now blocked Caller: RFS Scammer
I didn't answer as "unknown caller" and timing was not convenient. - I checked the number here just to be sure... then after reading the comments I went to the rfs webpage and found this.
Beware of bogus fundraising or advertising requests
As a general policy, the NSW RFS does not seek donations over the telephone. Any member collecting on behalf of the Service should be in full uniform and be able to readily identify themselves.
The NSW Rural Fire Service Association (RFSA), an independent and separate organisation which represents our volunteers and staff, does sell raffle tickets over the telephone as a fundraising initiative. These raffles are conducted through a telemarketing company and comply with the requirements of the NSW Department of Gaming and Racing. The operators are required to establish their bona fides and offer a return call number. The Association may also send out pledge letters but does not solicit donations.
Please contact the RFSA on (02) 4722 2122 or via their website for further information.
The NSW RFS encourages businesses to use caution when approached for donations or advertising. If you believe you have provided money or information to an organisation falsely representing the Service or its members, you should contact Police or the Department of Fair Trading. If you believe a magazine, advertising sales or fundraising call is not legitimate, contact SCAMwatch..
Caller: (02) 9094 2438 - RFS
Hi, I messaged ur before, but checking again I dont thing my message actually went through... I am experiencing the same thing. Just want to block from my home phone. Searching the number comes up as RFS "Rural Fire Service". I think it is legit and but they constantly call every 2-3 days. I have messaged them direct to their web site twice, which they obvioulsy dont read. I am about to send a firm/nasty message for the 3rd time. Would you like me to include ur name and number as well?
Caller: Rural Fire Service
I want know to do the exact same thing. Every second day I get a call. I tried Telstra (as usual, no help). I have now contacted RFS via there web site and have asked them to please stop calling that I cannot afford to buy raffle tickets or donate. I have contacted them twice via here web but seems like since I have done that I get a call more calls.
Im going to contact them yet again. If you wish to give ur name and number I will also bitch on ur behalf as well.
Caller: RFS Association
This is not the RFS but the union that represents the members - apparently. I made the mistake of giving money once, because I thought I was supporting the RFS, and now they hound me. Calls are blocked but I still get texts.
Caller: horrible people
sorry but I will never donate to the rfs ever again. imagine using cretins like that to beg money. shame on you rfs fools.
This number calls every day, even though I don't pick up the call. Very annoying. rings but doesn't answer. mms to call 147 Block straight away, SCAM!!! Caller: (02) 9094 2438
I get a call from this number almost daily. No message left. I have tried blocking this caller with no success
keeps ringing Caller: RFS
This number calls me every day. I told a guy that I would visit their website and have a look before I donated some money. Then my number should have been removed from the call list as I’d already told them my preference but they keep calling twice or three times a day and never try to understand how busy I am.
Caller: Apparently Telstra
Call landline 3 times a day, started calling my mobile. When I answer they hang up. Today when i answered she said she was from Telstra she wanted me to log onto computer and she can help me deal with hackers who are using our internet service to do illegal activities. Then she hung up when I told her I didn’t have a computer.
