I never answer unless I know the number . So on their merry way not wasting my time but u guys are wasting yours Caller: National Hearing Care
Nuisance marketing call. Good reason never to use their franchise again.
They constantly ring on the home phone and mobile, always around meal times, never leave a message. You cannot get back to them. This is just so annoying. Caller: (03) 9264 9101
Have been continuously calling my landline and then rings my mobile. I do not answer either. If they would leave a message I would gladly return their call. From comments above, I will not be answering... ever.
Ringing me and saying hello then hanging up on me. Its a private number they are calling. They keep calling and keep hanging up each time. If this is the Australian Hearing Service then they need to be shut down immediately for abusing our privacy. Says hearing Australia Asked for Ivan
Have also blocked their calls

If you're on the nbn probably someone spoofing the Hearing Australia number.
Why would someone in Melbourne call someone in QLD for a hearing test? Has called previously since June '19, doesn't leave message on answering machine. Just a bit of feedback to correct some of the other... Yes, 99% of the time it is a scam, and the few seconds of silence is one indicator, but not always. A lot of legitimate Australian companies who use cold-calling buy the same details from marketing companies that scammers buy; details you give permission to release when you don't tick that fine-print ['I agree to my details being share with promoters'] box. Some calls have a silence on connection because they're a computer-based phone system that records calls for training. So once in a blue moon it is legitimate, like National Hearing or Australian Hearing. I found that out the hard way when I swore at a completely genuine fundraiser who was working for a Qld hospital. A woman called Bernadette went to a boat-show and entered a prize-draw, didn't tick the box and gave them my number by mistake (I really don't know if it was deliberate)!! Now if they ask for Bernadette at least I have a heads-up. But the companies like National and Australian Hearing do remove you from their database if you ask. This is not the old days, it could be anyone on the other end even an ex wife. 5 calls in 5 days. I've manged to answer 4 of them within 2 seconds of ringing and they just hang up.. If it's Hearing Australia as mentioned above, why are they not speaking or leaving a voice message?! I manage to answer with "Hello Jenna speaking" and then the call ends. I live in Queensland an not Victoria so why if is hearing test are they ringing from Vic an not QLD Blocked this number today: I frequently get random calls and don't know how they get my mobile. Never leaves a message if I missed the call. Thank you for the information to the above people who have indicated who they are. They keep ringing me at different times, even at 8 pm and once on a Saturday. They ring at the beginning and end of the month for a couple of weeks. Won't leave a message. Getting call up to 3 times a day for nearly a month! Now I just wish that the caller drop death ASAP! Caller: (03) 9264 9101
It is Hearing Australia - the folks that provided my hearing aid.
I do not believe this is a scam
