I called back the number (03) 8373 4715 and reached vm that said I reached Communication Direct I did not recognise number so did not answer and they didn't leave a message, so assumed it’s not important. I checked here and found great information, thank you everybody and now I know who called me, and will now block Most likely on behalf of Red Nose as I have had calls from a similar number previously and they continue to send raffle tickets whether you have agreed to sell or not. They call relentlessly - usually around dinner time and unsolicited. They won't leave a message. I have blocked their number but it will come up as a different one a few months later. Ignore them. Caller: Fundraising
Wanted me to selll raffle tickets for Olivia Newton John hospital?
They rung on behalf of a charity for Scope at this time. In their voicemail, they'd thought Id picked up and were quite rude when I didn't answer (dummies)
They will say they are calling from the organisation theyre fundraising for rather than mention straight away that its a charity group and not actually the organisation.
Caller: Communications Direct
End a call to accept and then they hang up every time - can't be doing the charities brands any good.
Fundraising The number belongs to an organisation called Direct Communications who call on behalf of various charities in Victoria Please don't call me Yes I got call today from that number.
If I don't recognise the number I don't answer. If important they will leave a message.
Fund raising Just hangs up when answered Thank you I will block them Caller: Charity Organisation company called Communication Direct
A man asked for me by name but I didn't respond.
I was on another call and this call overode my existing caller, dropped it and took over. Fortunately my phone was saying potential scam, so I blocked it, but I've never had a new call force an existing call to drop out. Worrying. call center for lottery I see that I had this number blocked as long ago as 2019. I suppose these pests deserve credit for persistence because they still haven't given up after more than a year. (Don't they say that it's a sign of insanity if you continue to do the same thing over and over and expect there to be a different outcome each time?) as above they were told not to call are blocked still calling They were already blocked on my phone but still managed to call. I never answered them in the first place. I will continue to block. Caller: Apparently these people called Direct Communications
Rang yesterday and today around the same time - before I got to answer the call was disconnected.....waste of the charities money; they should be robbed in to someone! Thanks everyone, now blocked.
