Caller: I Don't Care
What people need to know is that all these calls are aided and abetted by telstra ! They have an endless bank of numbers that these people are given access to, so they just have to make the call then telstra under their agreement just allocates one of this number bank to that call and another call will have another number bank number allocated to it , this is why if you do happen to call back the connection just cuts out because you are calling a non existent number ; and telstra should be ashamed of themselves for that " Profit Over Privacy! " shame on you Telstra! The only other hang up calls you will get "are" actual numbers their the ones that let it ring just once or twice then end the call, the idea behind this is to get you to call them wondering what they wanted and by doing so you have just given them two things they can now overcome the " Do Not Call Register " as you have now phoned them and they are just returning your call ( perfectly legal ) and secondly you have just let them know that yours is an active number so they can now sell it off to a mailing list along with any details about you they have .
SO if you don't know the number and they don't leave messages "BLOCK" the lot of them and tell everyone you know to do the same.
Legitimate callers will generally always leave some form of message for you.
And to finish my rant!
Shamefully enough most of these calls come from the one company that collects for most of the well known charities and for every $1 you donate only about 3 cents to a maximum of 8 cents from that $1 goes to that actual charity the rest goes into the pockets of these annoying " Thieves "
Thanks for your time!
PS:~ TELL EVERYONE !
I called back the number 0488 822 497 and reached vm that said I reached Richtell Survey Thanks Stephen. This number called 4 times this afternoon and each time left no message. Like others I am on the do not call register. My number is currently in the White pages. I am a low volume phone user and in the past 3 weeks I have been blocking at least 5 calls a week. This will be another one. Am finding Reverseaustralia a very helpful site. Makes me wonder if this volume of spamming is what others are experiencing. Surely the Government and Telstra can do more? I blocked this number after 2 unanswered calls and the number still called again i am sick of this sh*t it is my phone sh*t heads ringing 4/5 times a week Again, thanks Stephen for the info. These calls are annoying Thanks for the comments. I on the do not call register and I still get calls. I will block the number. Thank you for your very informative message Stephen 0488 seems to be the prefix for these nuisance calls. It was something like 7099 but now it's this one. Lesson from an ex employee if it rings and it's someone you don't know don't answer.
If it's important they'll leave a message, if not they won't, so just place number on your list of barred numbers.
I didn’t answer and typically no message left Caller: Scammers
Like all the thousand of other numbers these scammers call from...BLOCKED!!!!!!
I picked up as I was expecting a call from someone else. It wasn’t a person rather a recording telling me it was a short automated survey. Block this number Good on you Stephen. My sentiments exactly. Caller: Spam Number
Called me several times during the evening. I really am over these call groups being shills for charities. I choose if and when I want to donate money and won't be pressured by the likes of them.
Seems like spam.
Neither seen nor heard.
Caller: No answer - obviously computer dialling.
Phoned back, and is survey company, Reachtell. However, have blocked them, as it is very rude to computer dial - I am fed up with these calls, both at home at at my business.
spam for sure. Believe this is spam
