I don't answer these calls and google the number when they show up. This number has called me a few times this week. This number rang my mobile number this afternoon however didn't leave a message. Caller: Some Wanker
The important thing is we can all google the phone number, see this site, and smile whilst we realise it wasn't our friends, wives, drug dealer, girlfriends or mistress that we just ignored. Happy days.

Received a miss call from this number. Called back and a girl called Marie from National Review Team answered the phone addressing me by my full name. I questioned her what was her last name and what National Review Team was. She said we could just talk using her first name, then she went on about some Super Fund insurance being withdrawn from super due to new government policies. I stopped her there and request her to explain to me what National Review Team was, and was told that it was acting on behalf of an authorised advisor, I asked what advisor, they said Financial advisor, I asked what's the name of the financial advisor, the call got cut out.
I called back 2 more times, got 2 more girls whose name was Sharon, and Sarah (Davis), along similar lines, and while being questioned the calls got cut out.
Please be merciless with these scammers!!! They know your full names. Don't let them talk over you.
As usual election time. in one night, dinner time of course, had four calls all the same number except for the last digit. All prerecorded messages so no point saying anything
its a recorded message from oneflare
Caller: Telemarketer - fundraising
Hard sell fundraising for a conservation charity. Have tried about 3 numbers, and don't take no for an answer (obviously working on commission). Unimpressed.
Caller: Automated call- state government survey
The Call was about doing a survey about state politics I had let it go to message bank it’s an automated call. Which is ensuring that your area is getting served at its best or something like that.
I don’t really care, I mean I do but who’s going to actually listen to me? Everyone’s opinions and concerns fall on deaf ears.
I do the same. It’s the only way to beat them! Will not answer unknown numbers. Have had this number call a few times. Caller: I don’t know
But for same reason they can ring me but I have their number blocked how is that possible?
Always call around lunch or dinner time. Have blocked them
Caller: Pest Bstds
Rang today, didn't leave message.
This number has called 3 times never leaves a message. How do I block them? Googled this number after the 3rd time today and came across this page. I didn't answer the call and so glad i didn't. I suspect a nuisance telemarketing or survey call. This number calls me constantly, I'm with Telstra and it comes up marked "Potential Fraud' so I never answer. So many reports that I'm now blocking this number Hi there. I'm in Qld and get bothered by this number. Just got a call from this number - right on dinner time. I don’t answer numbers I don’t know. Goes through to message bank and then I check it on here and see all the complaints. I have now blocked. If it is a government survey unfortunately the are exempt from DNC register. I think we should be able to choose if we want to receive unsolicited calls for surveys or charities asking for money. What people do not seem to realise about the do not call register is that it only works for foreign numbers. The DNC register does work, it’s just that these harassing morons have realised that it doesn’t work on local numbers, so if someone is calling you from an Australian based number, it can bypass the DNC.
