Quantum Market Research calling on behalf of Yarra Valley Water, conducting "important" research to gauge customer assessments of Yarra Valley Water.
Surely if it was important, they might send a letter and/or offer an incentive for people to spend their time offering their opinion.
As YVW is a monopoly (retail and distribution) and there is no possibility of any competition, I can't imagine what their "important" research might entail.
I think it'd be pretty simple. Supply me uninterrupted potable water, take my sewage away, then send me an accurate bill - Thanks.
Have called a few times. Spam.... If you are going to call with something useful leave a message. i see that these guys are annoying other people but if they can leave a message even as a courtesy to say who they are then clearly they are unprofessional and there must be something deceitful behind their calls. Professional honest companies would at least leave a courtesy message. In saying all that Yarra valley water must be be selling of their customer data My phone picked it up as spam, helpful to read other comments here. Caller: survey
said she was doing research for Yarra Valley Water
said sorry im at work
and I hung up and blocked the caller

KARMA BIUTCH... leave are Aussies alone. No body wants to do a survey call, nor enter fake competitions. We're getting smarter F OFF! Caller: Department of health
Claiming to be from vic dept of health conducting a survey, quoting a 1800 number but the guy stuttered and so that’s a hell no from me. Desperate.
Caller: TKW Research Group
According to hiya- TKW research group just called. I said- hello, they hung up.
They hung up on me plus I am not with Yarra Valley water. BLOCKED NUISANCE CALL keeps calling. Scam Caller: TWK Research Group
Never picked up the phone, but Hiya said it’s them yet again. I have blocked their number two times before and each time they seem to have a different number. If I won’t pick up the phone when my best friend calls, I won’t pick up to hand over my data to a nuisance caller.
Caller: A water company
I was scammed by a water company, thousands over the years.
I found out it was an inside job, so I got a lawyer and later free water for a bit.
Not all of it back though. Cut it short, I think this is how it happened, I gave someone my details then I got fake bills and a different bill number. finding an older bill with a different bill number I figured it out.
I got the same call asking me which AFL team I follow and which state I'm from TKW Research Group...ie spam Caller: TKW Research Group
Wanting to ask a couple of questions in regards to Football......
Now calling about VFL. Should they be investigated? Spam Caller: Michael
Claimed to be from Quantum Market Research and asked me “two quick questions” about my support of AFL teams. Team and State I'm from?
Got the 'which team do you support' from this number with an Indian accent, definitely genuine (not), another hijacked Aussie number used by an overseas scam factory somewhere in Mumbai or Kolkata me thinks.
