So you say you have the right from Govt to call us "until 8.30pm each weeknight and between 9-5pm at weekends" ?
just keeps ronging power company unsolicited call Is there any way to block these irritating fools with an old phone? I've no interest in humoring people who somehow have obtained my mobile number, despite the fact it's used only in emergencies and no other occasion. I don't answer unknown numbers, and they've messaged/called so many times in the last two days that it's beyond a joke.
How are people aloud to get your number anyway!
Don't these scumbags know they can't phone on a Sunday morning? It's in the rules. You people don't do real research, just populist rubbish for opinion polling not on behalf of the government; but on behalf of a political party. I am reporting them to the government watchdog. I have barred these calls along with many others. My barred called list is becoming longer than my phone book list. I no longer answer calls from Private numbers, interstate calls or re-curring numbers. Isn't it a shame that they can invade our homes in such a manner. Another annoying new one is the government recorded messages. I don't remember inviting them into my home! If it is a genuine call they will politely leave a message and await my return call. You don't need a Telstra phone, any handset with a built in phone book eg Panasonic will enable you to block numbers. Or save them as Do Not Answer. Works great for fundraisers and anything. You can have your number removed from the Wallis Survey Call List by going to their web site at ( www.wallisgroup.com.au ) or ringing their number back and leaving a message asking for your number to be taken off their call list.
This has worked for me and I don't receive any more calls.
17 calls in 14 days. How about get lost. Gee, these people are persistent! Wallis Consulting Group that is! I suggest that their number is added to your 'reject calls' list. Then they can try all they want without annoying you. It's their time and money; but I guess the Government pays them anyway so the more they try the more money they may generate as an income. Good for them, bad for the tax payer! They could at least ask whether you're interested in participating! One simple text message/letter asking same and if they don't hear back then stop trying. I've received hard copy correspondence (what a waste of paper too!) and 9 attempts so far. You'd think they would get it by now. They must be paid on a per attempt basis. It's just easier to add your number to my 'reject calls list' or you could ask for permission rather than just persistently calling. I've added your number to my reject calls list so you are wasting your time and money anyway. If the phone companies in Australia dont monitor the call centres overseas,to see what they get up to,shame on the phone companies. I am on the Do Not Call Register, but this one seems to be getting through on my landline. Last two nights, call around 7pm when I answer - nothing then they hang up. Tonight, ringing stopped after a couple of seconds and I didn't answer, hence I was able to get number via *10#. Why do they bother??? to any Wallis staff reading this, could you please advise where the phone numbers are sourced from ???? Keep ringing and after 7pm.. the pricks! got a call, answered the phone then they hung up. I'm in same boat. how the hell do they get your number when you only use your phone for emergencies? I have not shared this particular number with anyone so how would they get it in the first place? I tried to call them to grill them about how they got my number, and there is a facility whereby you can leave a message for them to have your number deleted from their database. But it doesn't connect as they repeatedly tell you to speak into the phone!!! I phoned back five times and tried to leave the message and each time the same lame message given to me. It isn't good enough when you have a private number. it is absolute rudeness on the part of the marketing company if the number is not in the phone book. got call, someone said hello them dropped out. I have made a complaint to the Do Not Call Register. If everybody does this, it might be more effective. Here’s a survey for you Wallace...
If a person is listed on the do not call register, would you say they would:
A) Understand Wallace failing to respect their clearly stated desire not to be harassed,
B) Waste their time accurately answering inane questions at dinner time in order for Wallace to make money,
C) Conclude that Wallace are a bunch of low rent phone spammers who are too stupid or arrogant to use the do not call register and deserve to live in the black-list.
Thank you for your time...
