Caller: Said they were Rural Fire Service
Sorry, but disconnected quickly as have had these calls before and believe them to be bogus. RFS does not operate like this.
Fund raising raffle, l redialled the number Getting a call at least once a day and nobody talks when you answer Calls more than once a day, never anyone on the other end of the line and no messages left. Number now blocked. Caller: Supposedly RFSA
I am getting messages from this number every day without fail. I have blocked the number, but still get a message to say I missed their call. I have repeatedly asked them last year (if they are RFSA) to stop ringing, but it must fall on deaf ears or be a scam call.
Caller: (02) 9119 4968
Call 1300 886 067 you can request they take you off the calling list.
They were very nice about it when I called
This isn't actually the RFS - it is the RFSA (RFS Association). It's a subtle difference.
From the RFS site ....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.
I have been informed by a friend who is high in the RFS that very little of their fundraising makes it to the RFS. You are better off giving directly to your local brigade.
We have received a call on our house phone from this number every day for the past month - generally we don't answer, however have on a couple of occasions and nobody speaks to us and don't leave a message. Very annoying. Caller: maybe RFS??
they call and hang up sometimes several times a day. Really annoying. they dont speak when you answer the phone or leave a message on answering machine. going to figure out how to block them calling my home number...Grrr
they hang up when i answer Caller: supposedly RFS
We have had at least a call a day since 9th May, sometimes twice or more a day. They have been told to take us off the list as we don't donate over the phone but still they persist and I know the RFS gets hardly any of the money from these call centres!!!
Same as everyone else here, they call up to 4 times a day and no one answers.
Get 2-3 calls a day for the past 2 weeks and off and on for a few months. Not game to pick up the calls any more. I have had three calls from this number - one each day for the past three days - I have answered the phone and they have hung up on me. Don't know who they are but its very frustraiting that they don't even answer. Yes same again a call from this number with no one answering. I'll make a note of this number now and pick up just enough to immediately hang the phone up. Time wasters. Caller: 9119 4968
Rings every afternoon. We no longer answer as no one ever there. We think they get paid for each call they ring, but don’t want to bother talking, so hang up?
Don’t answer and they will surely give up unless automated. How does one block home phone calls?
This number hung up a couple of seconds after I answered. Why are they calling if the don't answer to anyone and hang up? Is it a call to check if anyone's home at that time? The fire service have called asking for donations before. But I see here that the cash rarely reaches them? I make any donations to anywhere privately. Except you actually don't get taken off their list. I have told them many times that I have asked to be taken off their list and yes they are very nice and then I get the next call a while later. For the past 2 weeks we are getting calls again but no-one answers. So don't count on being "taken off their list". Calling repeatedly not leaving message, dialled it back & said this number not in service Ring roughly the same time every night when answered they hang up
