I called back the number (03) 8789 4437 and reached vm that said I reached TKW Research Group How market research is exempt from the do not call register is beyond me! It's exactly why the register exists Caller: TKW Research Group

These people asked to speak to my Mother. I told them they had to be clairvoyant. Blah blah blah. Just another group that our government should stop. These calls are ridiculous. Have nearly 600 numbers blocked. Australia wake the f up. If this continues we won’t be able to speak to anyone Caller: This scammwer
States they were some research group and requested my personal details to proceed i told them i was a detective and they told me to f*ck off and hung up
This number ( PHANTOM PRESUMABLY ? ) above had attempted to contact on mobile phone today ? ( 11:19am ) Saturday
"21 / 11 / 2020 "
Had left "NO" message nor TEXT to say how they obtained mobile number nor why they attempted to make communication with the "ASSUMED" person/s they wish to speak to ?
Would this above "Listed" caller be a hoax ? Prank ? overseas infiltrator ? Criminal / bogus intent ?
Caller: Australian "commonwealth" government research group asking questions for victorians about health care
apparently Australian "commonwealth" government research group asking questions directed towards Victorians about health care
wanted to know if i lived in Victoria to participate in an survey. Told them no and they thanked me for my time and hung up
I received a call on my mobile from this number just now. There was a like a three second silence, and then the hung up. I phoned the company TKW Research and complained about this error. They were helpful, and apologised. Missed call. No message left. After reading the comments here, I am very glad that I didn't pick up the phone. No one should be exempt from the Do Not Call Register. The whole idea of setting it up was to stop nuisance calls. If various companies are going to be exempted, the register can't protect anyone. The rules for this register should be changed to no exemptions, unless they have express permission from the person receiving the call. Your a pest and we wish you would stop calling us - especially when your operators sound like they are calling from overseas - you do sound like a scam - not at all interested - how many times do we have to say so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Caller: A female called Kim
Said she was from BT Financial - wanting to speak to one of my brokers in relation Asgard - did not want to leave a message said she would call back another time. She did the same thing with one of our other brokers yesterday - hmmmmmm - always a bit weary when I see these 03 numbers. Usually scammers.
Thanks to this excellent resource, I now know the annoying number that goes automatically to my blocked nbr list is TKW Research group.
Although exempt from 'do not call' register if calling for political or research reasons, you can still contact this types of organisations, who handle these campaigns, and ask for your number to be removed from their database; have done so successfully on numerous occasions once identified where they're from.
I didn’t answer the call as I don’t answer numbers I don’t know. But seeing these comments will now just block the number Caller: TAL insurance
Had this number ring asking to speak to my boss. I explained to him that he was away from the office and what it was regarding. The guy said his name was Luke and spoke in an Australian accent. He spoke ever so quickly and said it was a private matter. Luke wouldn't give me a number for my boss to call back on. Said that he will try again another time. Then he hung up......
Phone call came through at 8.30pm. I go to bed at 8pm for a 4.00am wake up. I'm on the do not call list. If I'm to be women up at least make it a human. These mechanical voices appear to be a scam. I don't talk to them.
Blockin in future.
If it's truly sourced by government they are wasting tax payer money.
Caller: TKW Research group
My phone picked this up as suspected SPAM. Yay phone. Don't know how it did this as it was the first time this number called me. Didn't answer it.
