This number rings me several times a day and never leaves a message. Anyone know how I block the number from my home phone please? It's a Panasonic hands free, about 10 years old This number has called 12 times (that I know of) since the start of December last year and increasing in frequency. Pests that obviously do not get the message! They do not leave any details so I do not answer and that will continue - I have blocked the number. Have rang me 4 times in the last week. damn annoying Rings several times a day. I don't answer but it's such a nuisance. They call every few days however I do not answer - just pests (to put it politely). Never leave a message - just drop the phone! Caller: (03) 8588 3916
Call every day - it's getting ridiculous- they only ever get the answering machine anyhow ....
Persistent caller. They phone a couple of times a week, but I leave the answering machine on and they don't leave a message Caller: Next Steps Australia
This number called me again today (I guess I forgot to add them to my blocklist the first time! Fixed now!)
The script was almost identical to the last time they called, same voice, same hyper-cheery tone despite being about domestic violence during a pandemic. They gave me the same pitch as they did to GW: "we need 3 people to donate & we've already had 2 others today, we just need you". A new addition this time, when I mentioned I only donate online they read out their full web address.
Thanks to Anonymous above, I found their details in the Australian Charities And Not-For-Profits Commission government register, with details of financials. Seems to be a very small charity operating out of Victoria. But even if it's legit - don't give your financial details out to unsolicited phone calls! It could be an impersonator. Do your own charity research & donate through official charity websites instead.
never leaves a message. blocked This appears to be from the same scammer with various phone numbers and reading other responses would not be surprise it is the same person doing this? Caller: Scam call
Pilbara Region of West Australia
They rang home phone then hang up when answering machine started – no message left.
Received a few times over last couple of days.
Number Blocked now
Answered. Nobody answered for 3 seconds. Obviously a computer calling. I hung up and blocked the number. No message left on voicemail (home phone NBN)... checked this site... have now blocked. Should be an easy one for the authorities to jump on. Caller: Scammers Claiming to be Next Steps (Domestic Violence Charity)
Pre-recorded message that sounds very life-like of a woman asking for donations. They are claiming to be Next Step - a legit charity that supports victims of domestic violence - however if you google the charity the actual website has a phone scam alert. They are asking for bank account details for a “one off” donation - claiming that they only need three people to pledge and you are the third. Absolutely disgraceful, but scarily sophisticated.
Caller: Next Steps Australia
Claimed to be Next Steps in support of domestic violence. If it's real, sounds like a good cause, but the way they are going about it is terrible. Was an unsolicited call, pushy, hung up rudely after I politely explained that I couldn't donate now but will look into it later. Not the way to gain support.
Missed call. No message left. Why aren't these pest callers having their phones permanently disconnected by the authorities on all numbers they use?? Rang only a few times. No chance for answering machine to cut in. In light of previous reviews, I have now blocked this number. Humbugs ! Never leave a message. Once I see the # I never answer.
Cheers from Adelaide.
Caller: Lizzy Pearl from some charity
