    Caller: Purportedly 'World Vision'

    I am getting a strong feeling that this number is used by scammers to induce 'donations' from unwary victims.

    Got a call during business hours today (to our business line). It showed up as the mobile number: 0488 828 663. So, we answered the call, thinking it would be a customer enquiry. But, no.

    ALSO, feel that this is a scam, because, if you read all the other posts about this number (on this page) you'll see that the 'organisation' that is calling, changes frequently. One time it's 'Green Peace' - then it's 'Bush Heritage Australia' - then it's 'World Vision'.

    The REAL organisations don't have the money, the staff, or the time to set up call centers for cold calling people all day every day - seeking donations. That's just NOT how they work.

    Be wary people!
    ;)

    I got a call and the person knew me by name. As soon as I started responding to ask who it was, they hung up. Tried calling back and the line automatically disconnected, it wouldn't ring.

    Caller: St John's Ambulance

    Apparently I showed interest in the work St John's do (apparently through some online surveys....SCAM), went on for 12 minutes (normally I just hang up but I kept listening) all for trying to get me to be a supporter and donate each month, said that I couldn't about three times, kept pushing so I hung up!
    I'm all for supporting charities but this isn't the way to do it.
    Now I don't know how to get off the call list for more calls like this!

    Caller: Children's Outreach

    Recieved a call from this mobile number 02/09/2019. The man on the other end claimed to be from Children's Outreach (yet it sounded like he was standing at a busy intersection). I immediately hung up the call. Sounded like he was asking for donations to said Charity. I have since been in touch with charity to let them know the sitation. I have not received a response from them.

    Lady said she was from Greenpeace. Wanted to know how my day was and what I had been up to.
    Seriously? As if Im telling.
    Asked her politely a few times I wasnt interested in the call but she continued with her spiel. So I just hung up.
    I can only assume it was a scam.

    Caller: On behalf of Plan (child sponsorship)

    I do sponsor a child through Plan. I'll say to them, if you don't want me to do that anymore a great way to get rid of me would be to give my details to third parties call factories seeking funds for whatever!

    Caller: Bush Heritage

    Just Bush Heritage Australia asking for donations to help protect native wildlife. I accepted, gave my details, and after the call they sent a valid email. Completely harmless, you don't have to donate if you don't want to. The guy on the line was polite and cool!
