I often get phone calls relating to surveys. 99% of them are not relevant to me or my family.Waste of time! I had a call today from the number (Saturday).
we do not use our home phone for anything but internet, so i dont answer the calls unless i know the number. usually only family call on that number. Majority of the time, the home phone is on silent.
I am also on the DO NOT CALL register, and have been for only 2 years.
How can they legally call when registered to NOT get these types of calls?!
Just rec'd a call at 7pm from (03) 9940 2000..rang three times. I didnt answer these calls suck. Receiving a couple of calls a day on my work phone (the message clearly indicates it is a work number) I have better things to deal with at work than this rubbish I called it back (did not answer because I thought I recognised the number from previous attempts) and this is the recorded message -
"You've called The Wallace Consulting Group and Market Research Company, based in Melbourne, if you wish to contact someone regarding a survey please call (03) 8620 5688"
Oh yes please....haha
I have since gone to re-register myself for the do not call list as I obviously am no longer registered there - (wouldn't have thought it had been 5 years since I registered but anyway...)
I too have registered on Don't call. Fortunately I have a message to discourage soliciting. I only pick up my phone if I recognise who is calling. (03) 9940 2000 Rings 2-3 times a day for many months... told not interested.. to no avail..some A H telling me how to save money. BLOODY PEST. i find it funny that they called me for a survey on my private home number as i used to work in the telemarketing industry and know that i have entered the do not call list and they can be up for a personal fine of $10,000 and the company up for a $250,000 dollar fine if i report them.
