Caller: Survey on election
Received 6 calls in the space of 20 minutes on mobile and landline phones
Number now blocked
Just received another 2 calls on landline and mobile + both calls were blocked
In essence I called these tosses back. Was a bunch of idiots in Sri Lanker. Calling through a redirected Australian number.
I put the fear of Christ into them. Had him believing they had called a internal government number of ASIO. The guy I first got was so stressed that he leaked that they were in Sri Lanker. When he realised what he had done he became abusive and I should have felt insulted but hearing a Indian person who had a poor grasp of the English language abuse me with a thick Indian accent sounded so funny I couldn’t help but laugh which incensed his so much he hung up on me. Just to find out how stupid they were I called back and I got him again. The poor fool lost his sh*t when he realised it was me again. Some other guy got on and I put him through the same roller coaster. In the end I think I had 2 seriously stupid arrogant abusive idiots so stressed out the new guy hung up. I just had to call them back because it was like shooting ducks in a barrel. But this time they were no longer answering my calls. I guess they blocked my number or something. Objective attained.
Caller: Not sure
It came up as an unknown number, so I let it slide and checked your site. My gratitude goes to the people who have taken the time to write down their experiences and leave them for others to see. Really appreciate this. Keep up the good work.
A) It's Sri Lanka not Sri Lanker
B) Indians are from India a completely independent country from Sri Lanka.
C) Cool story bro.
Dodgy ucomm poll for the upcoming federal election. Recorded message states the survey will take between 3-5 minutes. After 2 questions became obvious it was a heavily biased poll geared towards eliciting a favourable response for the ALP. Ucomm has very close ties to the trade union movement, as far from an impartial poll as you could get - this was the 3rd question : Are you in favour of tax cuts for the wealthy top end of town as opposed to increased funding for state schools? - at this point I hung up. Pest with an agenda.
They ring often after hours, we answer, they don't speak: then hangup. Terminally ill person gets very sick and annoyed by this. I would like to say that God is watching all the time and whoever you are you should remember that. Just be kind in this life.. and have some class. Acting like this is the easy pathway Work hard to improve. Good luck! Don't know if God is real or not myself but doing good gives me happiness. Called my mobile then my home number, no one spoke when I answered the home phone Nuisance call quiet possibly they rang my mobile number.....did not recognize the incoming ?/ mobile no. as being someone ( family or close friends who know my no. ) & wouldn't ya guess ?? they rang right on Dinner Time just after 6 pm..if it is not a number I recognize ..i don't answer.. so then my husband found these comments when he looked up the above no. 0488 822 702.. so adding my comment: thank goodness for all the other people who have commented.re this annoying number. . Called me three times in half an hour. Left no messages or texts.
Mustn’t have been important!
Getting really tired of these pests.
Phone numbers are fast becoming useless.
Caller: 0488 822 702
Didn't recognise the number so didn't answer on Landline so did the Reverse look up & read the comments. Glad I never answered it as I guessed it would be "Political" as I have just had 2 unsolicited messages on my mobile from the local MP - Grrrrr!!!!!
Reachtel political survey, I let my answering machine answer the questions ;) I called back number 0488 822 702 reached IVR for U Comms. serial nuisance I am seriously thinking of getting my phone disconnected from Telstra, when you complain they tell you they can't do anything about these idiot off shore telemarketers, I think they are all tared with the same brush.
I pay to have my phone private and not listed so how is it these morons can get my number, a Telstra leak I think.
Caller: U comms
Survey called twice in a couple of minutes and looked like local number
Automated telephone poll for the upcoming election. Doesn't provide an opt out option.
Arsholes It's an automatic recording. Rang my home & phone number 4 times within 10 minutes Caller: 0488 812/3 xxx
I have blocked around 50 calls from different variants of 0488 numbers (most 812 or 813 but some 840s and a couple totally out of the sequence). I now get notifications but no actual calls. They must have a finite list of numbers and all of them are blocked on my phone.
This pest never gives up ringing at least twice a day. I don’t answer but can see the number. Thanks to all who have provided feedback
