It's a fundraising company - they call to ask for donations and to sign up for regular subscription-type donations if you've given your number to a charity (ie. on a raffle ticket or online). Nov 2020 they are calling if you asked for a Lifeline kit to be mailed to you. They're not scammers and will stop calling if you ask them to. I called back number 0488 862 152 spoke to a woman who said company name is Cancer Council. Clever Contacts who have been contracted by the Cancer Council (among others) to respond to marketing to raise funds. They also work on behalf of RSPCA RFDS and others I do not answer unknown numbers, Now blocked. Caller: 0488 862 152
They didn’t leave a message, so I looked the number up here rather than calling, glad to hear my instinct was right. I’d already been conned by a professional beggar on the street in Kogarah with a pet dog who claimed he was homeless, and gave him $20. My mistake. Watch out for these scum.
