Caller: The woman caller I d’d herself saying her name was Lily(or Lizzie?) Dent. Do not know anyone so called, so hung up
Probably a method of getting money sounding toooo personal as if making it authentic
These pests will not give up. I blocked the number after they butted into my life without even leaving a message. But even though they didn't want to speak to me, the pathetic idiots keep trying to call me - at dinner time, of course. Give up, losers. Caller: (03) 8588 3916
says Clayton location Melb...sick to death of these calls :( they have nothing better to do ...If I need whatever service I will look it up myself do not need to waste my time with these idiots who cannot get through their thick heads how annoying they are ...you (these services?)loose credibility this way you do not gain them ...so go find yourself a proper job!!
This number called both my landline, then mobile in last 2 days (x1 once p/day)...so suspect this org has purchased numbers from a database seller to SPAM people....
have also looked up user comments on this number linked to a company called 'NEXT STEPS AUSTRALIA'.... it "seems" to be a registered business via ABN Search:
HOWEVER scam artists can 'pose' a companies to scam people.....given the nature of angry posts against this phone number - suggest everyone BLOCKS / reports this scam to Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman....
Caller: Australias leading fundraising centre
I missed the call, so called back and message said you are calling Australia’s leading fundraising centre. They then said they were calling on behalf of a major charity. At end of message it just hangs up
Caller: Calling about domestic violence packages
Calling about domestic violence packages. didn't get a word in sounds like a recording. feels dodgy
Caller: thisno is from clayton ?
i blocked this number , they wouldnt speak were very quiet , scamming ***ts
Hung up Caller: Don’t know cause I not silly to answer it
I’ve had this number calling several times now. Because I can see the phone numbers, if I don’t know the number I simply don’t answer it, it’s obvious to me it’s a scam. So any of you scammers out their who are scum of the earth, don’t bother, your wasting your time with me. So suck sh*t.
Caller: A charity
Claims to be Next Steps Aust charity...calling on a Saturday morrning... Caller: Fundraising centre
Same woman using a different name claiming to be from a different charity
Claiming to be from The Fundraising centre
Said I will donate using the actual charities website but they are insistent on getting receipt number
Obviously they get a significant commission
I will donate to these causes however directly so that all the funds go to the actual charity rather than call centres
Same here. I answered, but they hung up immediately. What for? Why even call? I did an ABN search for this telephone number / links to Next Steps Australia Limited, a charity.... https://abr.business.gov.au/ABN/View?abn=19613371109
Given the string of online complaints about how this company deals with the public when seeking donations...the best lesson is NOT TO DONATE, or BLOCK the telephone.... a charity can only survive with donations & Gov grants, start reducing either, good works go down the toilet.... (free business lesson, Especially in Covid business environment).
Same as other complaints, no response from caller when I answered the call. Time wasters. Said “Next Steps” charity organization. But they were ringing 9:30 pm . . . Have had several calls from Clayton Victoria and usually don’t answer. When asked why they ringing 9:30 at night when we are getting families off to bed became pushy and said wouldn’t take long. No was not respected. When I kept my line they hung up. Yet more scamming pests intruding into my home without even the courtesy to leave a message. Since they don't want to speak to me, I've blocked the number. Caller: Don’t know cause I see the number, don’t know, don’t answer, best way to do it.
My phone rings most nights around 6pm,it always stars with the number 03 (Vic), then the rest of the number is different. I’m no fool, it’s the same scammer using a different number so he doesn’t get traced. when are these “Scum of the Earth losers” going to get pinned down from our piss weak law in Australia. I’m glad I don’t know anybody over east or overseas, it’s the best way to.
Didn't answer. They did leave a message. Suss ! I picked up the phone for a change instead of letting the answer machine pick it up. I didn't say any thing, 20 seconds after I picked up they hung up.
