I rang back the number (03) 8789 4497, spoke with someone who hung up right away Didn't bother answering. I don't answer any calls that I don't know and just google the number to see if I need call back TKW Research, spam call Caller: Research Company
While some call this company as 'Legit', it becomes illegitimate when they call without any permission whatsoever. This is precisely what they did. They called despite being asked 'not' to call.

Called my mobile without leaving a message. Mobile registered with "Do not call" If this marketing company is legit, they certainly do not follow the rules. Hence this is a scam call. Scammer with heavy Indian accent trying to sell me bank products and when I refused, he offered me a free subscription to a magazine titled Curry Monthly if i signed up to a business that he has on the side running anti virus software. The hide of some people, i was completely flabbergasted. I was quite annoyed and he apologised and said he would email me a copy of the February edition of the magazine as a sign of goodwill. Guy started asking about a car loan I took out, knew the make and model of car too!
Asked some very personal questions and was fairly rude in manner.
I told him I don't have time and hung up.
I have lodge a complain to DO NOT CALL register (03) 8789 4497 Caller: TKW research
called me on a daily basis (including disturbing me on weekends) and never left a message. I called the number back at 10pm and a recorded message said it’s TKW research doing “important research” for my bank. blocked the number and hopefully that’s the end of it. Very annoying that they bother people on weekends - my number is on the do not call register and never give permission for my number to be used for any purposes.
Caller: TK research
Research company. Not looking at do not call register as I’m on it.
Caller: Some lady
St George bank. Got a car loan from then and then they got them to call me. They ask you the same question as asked when getting your loan.
Sat 21 Nov 2020 Didn't know this number so I didn't answer - this last week I've had Westpac & Bendigo Bank Phishing including 2 official looking letters Posted to my PO BOX so have emptied accounts & gone elsewhere. All problems started just days after opening a bank account with Westpac - suspect they've been hacked. *Must empty your Trash Bin After Deleting Scam Numbers or they can keep on ringing you. Caller: 038794497
called my mobile number which we very rarely ever give out so don't know where they got it from -did not leave a message -but very few people have our mob. number so not happy
Caller: TKW Research
They knew who we banked with, didn't know our last name.
We told them we didn't want to give out any personal information, their first question was "what is your email"
That's when we ended the call
Caller: some scammer

Scam, called me at 8pm Spam d*ckhead, hung up. Caller: Market Research / Feedback
Picked up call and lady mentioned she was conducting a feedback survey about a recent application I made with my bank. Seems more legit than regular spam calls.
