Queensland Government Statistics Dept.
Okay the lady said it was the qld stats office, when I asked how she got my number I was advised that the Qld government can apparently access phone numbers under an Act from 1896. I didn't know they had phones back then. It is a government survey for ppl who have studied.
I did a certIII
basically they wanted to know if the Cert helped me get work
So probably just the government wasting money to get a survey to back up pulling $$$ out of the education system, same sh*t, different smell.
This is a legitimate number doing legitimate research. They ask year 12 school leavers about what they are doing for work, study etc and ask the same questions yearly. It is not a trick or a way to get any info our of you other than if your child is at uni or tafe or working and for how many hours etc. They do not ask for any info that can identify you or your child. This is NOT a scam. The Government Statistician's Office conducts officials surveys on behalf of Queensland Government departments such as Police, Education and Health to help inform decisions about delivery of Government services. They have interviewers who work at night and Saturdays. Qld stats office. Also said I got a letter regarding the call but just to do the survey anyway. Not interested They called my mobile number as the landline had been cut off. Only Telstra can match both numbers, suspicious and not harmless. Just government calling to see if you're interested in doing a 3min survey I called back number (07) 3035 6428 reached voice mail for the Queensland Government Statistician's Office I don’t live in Queensland so why call me Okay so if it is from the Qld government and they are collecting stats, here is a stat for them. I don't answer calls anymore because there are too many scum bags out there trying to scam. Genuine people leave messages qld Gov wanting to find out student went after completing Grade 12. for sratistics. No, this is a legitimate Government survey. The phone number is posted on their homepage at http://www.qgso.qld.gov.au/ I called back number (07) 3035 6428 reached voice mail for the Queensland Government Statistician's Office. Caller: (07) 3035 6428
Have phoned 7 times in 3 weeks. Won’t be answering. They need to give up
Caller: Queensland Government Statisticians Office.
This is a legitimate Queensland State government department. They call between 9:30 am to 8 pm Monday to Friday and 10 am to 4pm Saturday. They have done so for many years. The Cairns MP below obviously does not know what they are talking about. The surveys help make up government legislation so they should know.
Those working in market research - who, naturally, get most responses outside of business hours when people aren't at work. Not all government workers do 9-5 you know. and for that matter, not every call you get is a scam. Maybe try being a bit more open minded. Caller: Qld Department of Statistics
Three minutes of my life that I'll never get back - still it was worthwhile. The information provided could benefit others. Be generous with your time. These aren't telemarketers or spam callers.
They have been calling me every couple of days for about two weeks. The message left claims she is from the Qld Govt Stats Office - what public seravnts are are working at 7.30 at night weekdays and 3.30 on a Saturday afternoon?????? Obviously a scam. Contacted local state mp, see response below.
Contacted local state mp see below response.
