Says it's Apple Marketing - Charities Have been contacted by this and associated numbers 2-3 times per day for the past week and have just contacted Telstra's Unwelcome Calls Team on 1800 805 996 in relation to the issue. Normally a "trace service" can be applied to these types of numbers which can lead to huge ramifications against the company involved, but this particular number is well known to Telstra as a non-existent scamming number - should you receive a call from this number, DO NOT CALL IT BACK since they could potentially charge you for the privilege. Unfortunately, all you can do is ignore or block this particular number since it is automated through the use of VOIP and there is nothing that Telstra or the government can do about it... They keep ringing and when you answer, NOTHING. Canlt believe in today's day and age telstra and other telcos cannot trace and block these a-holes who keep annoining us with these calls. no message just constant ringing by these imbeciles I called back number (03) 8582 0801 reached IVR for a company called Apple Marketing Group. They phone daily at 1PM. Most annoying! a**holes Didn't know it didn't answer obvious it was not important as they didn't leave a message, so, blocked it. They kept calling a few times but would not speak. Claiming to be from Mission Australia. Wanting a donation to help the homeless... especially now it's winter. Awwww. Hung up. Caller: Marketer / charity
Our home phone rang first. I picked up then hung up immediately. As I hung up, my mobile received a call from the same number. I tried to answer but the call disconnected. So the marketer/charity has both my home and mobile numbers, which means I've probably donated before. At least I can block the number on my mobile. Seems I need to try the Telstra Guardian 301 handset for the land line.

Added them to my phonebook and then turned the ringer off so when they ring I hear nothing Doesn’t ring long enough to be answered. I wouldn’t answer anyway. Just one of several events y day. Sick to death of these calls. Caller: Mystery caller
Makes me wonder if it's someone checking to see if I'm home before they break in!
Caller: Evidently a scammer
I didn't answer, as it looked like the typical scam/marketing number. I decided to check here first. This has become a normal part of life. Thanks for the info, everyone!
They ring and don't talk, will not answer from now on. Charity calls regularly, sometimes no response when you answer I have a message on my machine that tells people to basically go away the reply from this particular number was "oh my goodness" Looking for someone called Geoff Eeles. Said they were a charity and would remove my number from their call list.
