I tried to do a health insurance comparison online. They won't proceed unless you provide your details. I provided the details of my homeline which i rarely use. The health comparison people tried another number then this one. I do not wish to speak on the phone. I want to do my comparisons online, and CALL THEM if I am still interested. This kind of selling really sucks and I would love to see something done about it by our powers that be! The callers are no better than Nigerian and Indian scammers. I got 2 calls within 2 hours, I didn't answer and they didn't leave a message. When I called back I got a answering maching for a health insurance comparison company.
I did an online comparison, keyword being online - if I wanted to speak to them I would of called. Will be blocking this number.
Caller: Health Insurance comparison
2 numbers they have called from in two days. 0435 210 611 and 0411 443 823 if you don't answer one, they'll try with another. Sales person was pushy, and ridiculed me when I told him I wasn't interested.
Caller: I don’t know
These health comparison guys I’d say are using multiple different numbers to try and contact people because I had blocked a number that claimed to belong to this health comparison company and then had a call from this number and read comments to find that they were the same people trying to contact me via a second number.
Caller: Health Insurance Comparison
They’re trying to get tricky, using another mobile number 0411 443 823 for the last few days, which I blocked. I called this number back and got through to the Health Insurance Online call centre & told them I had a missed call from them. “Oh yes, so we were helping you choose health insurance you on Friday morning.” No, your creepy guy called me whilst I was still on the website and I told him I wasn’t interested!
I told this guy again I wasn’t interested and to take me off their list. He said “Sorry about that, I must’ve pressed the wrong button”. WTF does that mean? I’ll be interested to see if they try again with another new number in the next few days - I’ve blocked this one!
Caller: 0 0435 210 611
Advertising scam health care comparison
Will block this after seeing this. Thanks I got a call of some real Aussie sounding man saying “is this Amy” I said no” and then he said sorry wrong number and hung up... very weird as I just got a new number and no one has it I received a call from 0435 210 611 today and the said "is this Kylie?" (or some other name - a name I don't know) and I said "no" and they said "ok, thanks I must have the wrong number" and hung up - what's going on with this number?
I called the number back and it was a recorded call saying "the number you have called is from a health insurance provider, you should have received an email from us" I don't recall being online for any health insurance provider as my health insurance is covered by the company and I'm not looking for health insurance. Is it their call centre 'logging calls' to get their KPIs? I've now blocked the number.
Thank you all. The advertising for health insurance comparisons actually appeared in an SBS -just-in format and could be confused as originating from SBS. This could be considered fraudulent advertising. spam might be health insurance comparison online, missed call I also have had multiple calls from both 0435 210 611 and 0411 443 823 who hang up when I pick up the receiver - very annoying. Caller: Health Comparison
Have to keep blocking these numbers - NEVER do an online health fund comparison again !!!!!!! I have opted out and done everything to stop them but the keep harassing me
Caller: Health Insurance Comparison
I took a survey online via fb. She called me at 5.00pm and became very aggressive and bossy about what I should do - I let her know about it and blocked this number! I have since been getting emails from my current provider demanding more details on all my family - I feel positive she is responsible for this. I would love to know her name and employer so I can report her unsavoury behaviour!
I agree!!! This is what peeves me about these on line comparisons. I just block the number each time :/ About 3 weeks ago I did an online health insurance comparison. Subsequently got a couple of calls (and emails) to which I said I wasn't interested. Yesterday I received a call from 0435 210 611 at 7:10pm. I answered and said 'hello' twice but no answer and then the caller hung up. It is a number for Health Insurance Comparison. You have to put your phone number in so that you can get quotes from various health insurance providers. If you go online, they follow up with the number you typed into their site. They are legit -- but people (like me) want to think about it etc and not be phoned the minute they are off the website after having compared. They will keep ringing -- saying they do all the work of changing for you (they do that) but they wont get their commission from the health fund if you just go and buy it yourself. That is why they keep calling you I bet 'Kylie' put in what she thought was a fake number so she wouldn't get calls. I thought about doing it, but didn't want other people to suffer in case the fake number was real. I checked some health insurance quotes online and in order to get a quote you have to provide your phone number. The amount of phone calls I have received is actually rediculous. I have had to block so many numbers as they constantly harass me with calls. It's a disgrace that they are allowed to do this!!!
