Just tell lies. I like telling call centres, I'm in the building with you, or, I have warp power if it's electricity sales, or I'm already dead for life insurance. Or I work for that company or a competitor. Or I don't understand your language. Or put a kid on. Or tell them an alien has its fingers in my arse. Just had a call tonight.. She actually sounded annoyed that I answered and she had to talk.. She said survey, I hung up.. Its EY Sweeney conducting 'research' E Y Sweeny.. Market research.. i tell them the MD has put a block on all surveys.. but they keep trying.. wish they would just bugger off How do we know that the ACMA "Do not call register" is sometimes not the source of those pests getting our numbers in the first place. I mean, if the ACMA register was hacked, do you think they would tell you?
Lucky for me I have a call screening facility on my mobile. I just set the recording to leave a message and they have to respond. I have unlimited nationwide call credit so calling back is not a problem for me. However, if they do not even bother to leave a message then I cannot help them...I would leave info as to what service provider has the good deals I currently enjoy however, it would probably be unethical and against this boards policy as it may be misconstrued as advertising. Sorry Folks....
A "missed call" was in our call log. Thanks for the respondents who identified the number as belonging to EY Sweeney Market Research. Our numbers are on the Do Not Call Register, however they are still allowed to call. I have written to them to the effect that we do not participate in market research surveys, hence please ensure that they do not call our numbers. Australians may be interested in this URL: http://www.acma.gov.au/Industry/Marketers/Do-not-call-register/Telemarketing-standard/telemarketing-rules-i-acma It called me tonight and said it's a survey from Australian government! First call telling me that there from the Gold Coast City Council is conducting a survey
Second call telling me that the Parramatta City Council is conducting a survey an 03 number calling me in Qld and asking me my suburb street address
Caller: EY Sweeney
My phone identified this number as suspected spam so it went straight to my voicemail. Someone identified himself as "You"(?) Yang, lelf a message on behalf of Transport NSW about a letter (not sure what letter) in participation in the house of some survey. I was given the link to "official" government website http://www.hpsonline.com.au/ and toll free number 1800 709 777.
Same same..... always get these.. hahaha i just put phone down and let em talk away.. Said they sent me an email. Hmmm, ok I got my trusty keyboard out and with a few clicks and an enter. Boom, no email. They said: Must be in your "Spam" mail. LOL. Few trusty clicks and enter, boom. Nothing. They continued to refuse my findings about no email, so I continued to deny them any personal information. Goodbye. That's how I roll. Called me asking about the communication regarding the West Gate Tunnel. Told him I didn't know what he was talking about and he was taken aback, like I should know all about the tunnel. Love it. I have been getting calls for a particular person at my new address with a new landline and it's got that bad I just tell everyone, sorry she's dead. When I get call from those telling me about the NBN or there's something wrong with my computer, I tell them I am old and don't have the internet or a computer, that stops them in their tracks. It's got so bad getting telemarketing calls on my landline that we just divert it permanently to my mobile, that way I can easily block any telemarketers etc or what I like to call SPAM callers. This number had obviously called me previously as they are in my blocked number list, they called last night and my phone automatically rejected it, wonderful. They got sucked in to my "Lenny" phone app. After 10 minutes, they hung up and called back just to make sure they got had!
Don't know Lenny? Youtube search "Lenny telemarketer" and have a laugh.
