If companies like this are legitimate and allowed to call asking for input then fair enough. However the government guidelines need to be altered so no call are made in Sunday’s or after 4.00 pm other days when kids come home from school and others from a long day at work unless by prior agreement.
This way they may find that those on the receiving end of the calls are more amenable and less distracts do frazzled. Win Win
Caller: Say they are from the Department of Education
2nd call within 2 days
They have my name and then say they are calling from the Department of Education doing a survey
we are a retail business and have nothing to do with education
the number was (03) 9940 2000
Market and Social Research seems to be another name for Marketing and Sales!! If the work is so important why don't you leave a message with the details and maybe I'd consider calling you back. But it seems to me that once I am polite to you and answer a few questions my "private" number is shared around and I get endless telemarketer calls. My advice is to make a note of this number and don't answer it. Caller: Friendly Australian
An Australian guy rang our company from this number and luckily he was looking for someone who doesn't work with us. I kindly told him that we didn't have anyone by that particular name. Then he asked if we were the company he was looking for and I told him that he had the wrong number (he had the wrong area code). I asked him where he was calling from and he kindly explained that he was from Wallis Research and apologized for calling us. I told him that it was ok and hope he finds the right person. We must have been lucky!!!!!
sick of calls like these. we shouldn't have to put up with this everyday. most of the time they hang up without saying anything. Caller: Wallis Market and Social Research
The caller asked for the owner of my business with a view to doing research on recruitment. Since we have no employees I told this and was not able to assist. He then proceeded to take quite a tone with me, telling me he needed to speak with the owner. Even after I told him I am the owner and the only person here, and have no employees he attempted to take an even stronger tone with me telling me that HE wanted to do this research. OMG who cares about your needs? You call me at work I said to lecture me ? what is it with these people? I told him, look I've already lost a business call that came through whilst you were lecturing me and now I have to call them back, cya!
Caller: Wallis Marketing parasite #374
If these parasites had any ethics they would honour the do not call register that the majority of Australia is accustomed with, and not manage their own list
Caller: Wallis Marketing
Received SMS asking me to go to a URL to do an "important government survey". Then they called later today. I'm not doing a survey unless I am PAID for it. Want my time? It costs money.
Caller: Wallis Market and Social Research
It's indeed annoying!
But it's not Wallis to be blamed - it's the government. The job Wallis does is totally lawful. They have the right to call you even if your number is in the "Do Not Call Register".
In most of the European countries it's exactly the other way round from Australia. Companies like Wallis are only allowed to call you if you beforehand and in written agreed to receive calls from them. Customer protection in Australia is slightly different from the European Union.
You can still f*ck off with your useless crap, arseholes. I appreciate they have a job to do but when you multiply their one call by the other hundreds of calls begging for money, trying to sell products etc,etc.,etc.. it just gets over the top. Do Not Call register needs to be amended to stop these harassing calls. f*ck Off Why do I now need to buy a phone from Telstra to stop unwanted callers when we have the 'Do not call register'? Another scam from Telstra. Well done on selling the product Mark. Caller: Wallis marketing
Just leave us alone, if you don't get picked up, get the message !!!!!!!
Caller: Wallis Market and Social Research
I called back the number back (03) 9940 2000 and it went to voice mail. IVR instructed to leave mobile number if you wish to be called back OR "Say that I don't want to be called back" and leave number and it will be removed from the database. This was done last week and I'm still receiving their calls multiple times daily. This has been ongoing 3 weeks now.
I have blocked number on my phone and hope the calls STOP!
This number keeps calling ,sometimes twice a day,usually in evening when its dinner time. Damn annoying. To Wallis Market and Social Research and everybody else that is calling continuously not matter what your reason.When I was single I was a wealthy man. Now My wife and children have almost bankrupted me. I now need to work until at least 70 years of age and make money for my old age retirement. I kindly beg you to please not to phone me anymore during work or after hours as I am trying to work at either my job or support the household so that I can survive. Many thanks, kind regards , yours sincerely. Caller ID showed number as (03) 9940 2000. We did not recognise the number so did not answer. No message left. After reading above comments I'm glad we didn't pick up. I HATE these telemarketing/Survey Companies get rid of one and right more crop up ... it's like battling a hydra. The Do Not Call Register is bloody useless, there too many loopholes. Quite polite overseas individual, asked to do a survey on behalf of Malvern City Council, about how often I travel into the CBD. She started to give the spiel and didn't take a breath for the first 60 seconds.
I am on the do not call register.
I asked to be removed from the list and not to be called back.
It's sad the companies that require your mobile details for transactions feel no remorse about on-selling your details to telemarketers: there's no other way they could have my number.
you aren't meant to be calling people who are on the do not call list it is illegal what you are doing
