Called back and it was some ‘benefit to you’ (?) call service Caller: energy
tried to get me to switch over so i tried to sell them dildos
Caller: I Don't Care
What people need to know is that all these calls are aided and abetted by telstra ! They have an endless bank of numbers that these people are given access to, so they just have to make the call then telstra under their agreement just allocates one of this number bank to that call and another call will have another number bank number allocated to it , this is why if you do happen to call back the connection just cuts out because you are calling a non existent number ; and telstra should be ashamed of themselves for that " Profit Over Privacy! " shame on you Telstra! The only other hang up calls you will get "are" actual numbers their the ones that let it ring just once or twice then end the call, the idea behind this is to get you to call them wondering what they wanted and by doing so you have just given them two things they can now overcome the " Do Not Call Register " as you have now phoned them and they are just returning your call ( perfectly legal ) and secondly you have just let them know that yours is an active number so they can now sell it off to a mailing list along with any details about you they have .
SO if you don't know the number and they don't leave messages "BLOCK" the lot of them and tell everyone you know to do the same.
Legitimate callers will generally always leave some form of message for you.
And to finish my rant!
Shamefully enough most of these calls come from the one company that collects for most of the well known charities and for every $1 you donate only about 3 cents to a maximum of 8 cents from that $1 goes to that actual charity the rest goes into the pockets of these annoying " Thieves "
Thanks for your time!
PS:~ TELL EVERYONE !
Something to do with utilities - very pushy, especially when I wanted to end the call. Was offering to compare electricity supplier costs for me but wanted my address, was not happy when I tried to end the call but couldn't tell me why he was so keen to help me, couldn't understand why I wanted to go even when I explained the call was unsolicited and I didn't know him and couldn't understand why he would want to 'help' me for free. Don't normally answer numbers I don't recognise, good policy! Caller: Do not know
When answered there is no one there holding the phone, ready to talk, but they activate react to your answering the call and try to respond. By then I know it is a random caller. I hang up. If I do no answer the call, no message is left.
Bloody annoying! Getting calls from different numbers every day which hang up when I answer!!! Why bother calling? Caller: (03) 4455 4041
