charity fundraisers - very persistant. First it was (03) 9006 0157, and now it's (03) 9006 0156 that woke me today, again. I have a functioning answering machine but they never leave a message - so they're now never goign to disturb me again either because I'm blocking the calls. charity spam Caller ID showed number as (03) 9006 0156. Normally, when a number actually originates in a state the area code doesn't show (on our caller ID anyway). With this number it is either no answer from caller and definitely no message left on machine or very scripted, very persistent sales pitch (for whatever charity they're representing at the time). You can't get a word in edge ways until the person has finished their script. I no longer answer when this number shows on Caller ID. I need a phone with unlimited blocked numbers I think. What is the point of having a Do Not Call Register if these Numpties can get around the rules by claiming to represent a "charity"? Several calls just like others are reporting. They just hang up soon after you answer. I called the number back and they claim to be Apple Marketing, a charity fundraiser. On their website (applemarketing.com.au) They say
"Calls from Australian Charities, or organisations calling on behalf of charities (such as Apple Marketing Group Pty Ltd) are not considered to be telemarketing calls, as outlined in the Do Not Call Register Act 2006....
if you do not wish to receive calls from Apple Marketing Group on behalf of registered charities, you may contact us to have your number added to the Apple Marketing Group Do Not Call Register.
Download our form and email this to dnc @ applemarketing.com.au. It may take up to 30 days for the update to take effect.
Caller: Apple Marketing Group
You can also call them on 1800 811 866 and ask your number to be put on their Do Not Call register. They said it would take about 72 hours. Hopefully it works!
I declined the call. Then I rang back on a different phone. It said it was Apple marketing charity. So I have blocked the number. I have blocked numbers from these guys before but yet they still get through.

Pests. this number called & hung up as soon as I answered persistent and never leaves a message. almost daily some weeks. Caller: Children's Cancer Charity
I understand charities have to annoy people in order to raise money but I really don't want to be contacted. I don't trust that money donated actually goes towards research but rather to the CEO's of these companies so I no longer donate at all. I wish they wouldn't call me. It's getting to the point where I don't answer my phone even if I know the number!
