Caller: (07) 3054 4651
I can almost guarantee that these phone calls are because Optus is selling phone numbers in bulk.
I have been with Vodafone for over 20 years and never had a problem. We recently got a Telstra and Optus prepaid sim to see what was better value. Within an hour, both were calling us three to four times a day with spam phone calls. I believe there is some kind of law that makes older numbers defunct for several years before being put back into the public arena, so I know I’m not getting a previous customers “left overs”.
It’s extremely disappointing that one of Australia’s major telcos have been pawning off personal phone numbers for an easy buck. So much for privacy.
Caller: Guardian Financial
Said something about me being in default and asking how many superannuation accounts I have. I terminated the call there.
I called this number back after receiving 2 missed calls from them, only to receive a message that the number is not connected Persitent pest callers with Indian accents Called me asking how many super accounts I have and that I may be in default I terminated the call missed call and no message left - Caller: An idiot
Wanted to give me a “complimentary financial plan” by asking me a bunch of questions about my Super Fund. c*nt hung up on me
A lady supposeidly from Guardian, wants to inform you about your super policy insurances and when you last updated it. I left the conversation there.
It's funny when you recall theses numbers they're always disconnected
Caller: Guardian Financial Planning
When I answered the phone it sounded like a call centre, i asked whether this was a marketing call and she advised she was calling from Guardian Financial. She went on to say that she was calling about my super, I hung up and googled the company and the phone number did not match any of the 3 entries I found. I have blocked the number.
Left a long message. Noisy background. Waste of time
Same deal as above Phone numbers have been in circulation for years. Mobiles numbers you have use to belong to other users of that number. Hence if you were to disconnect your mobile and ask for a new number your number is up for grabs to anyone else on another service. And you will end up with a number that belonged to someone else once upon a time ago. And if that number was used to give to others then its already in circulation through online sites or local businesses and you will end up receiving calls that you never wanted. After a pause having answered my phone I was greeted with English that was so poor I had to ask again where he was calling from and still didn't understand. I simply told him I was not interested and hung up. Wish I knew how they got my number. Today I have a call from a similar (07) number but I missed that one Some survey. Sounded like a computer voice that I couldn't understand.
I'm on the do not call register.
I told him this. He said he was calling from Australia and it was a survey of research. What research I'll never know.
He said my name was on a list.
I told him it was against the law to call me. He replied he won't sell me anything. Kept talking so I hung up
Yes, me too. Just blocked this caller. How do they get our mobile numbers? same as other deal Calls multiple times a day but never more than two rings. I let it go to answering machine and it's just a mumble noise. Annoying. Block. Don't answer. Have had missed calls from this number nearly every day for past two weeks. Finally answered today. Said she was from EER (I think she said it stood for Entice Enact Return?) and that they'd found in doing a phone around in my area that they could save me upto $8k off my next tax return and had a way for me to pay off my mortgage 15 years sooner. There was so much background noise on her end of the phone that I could barely hear her. My kids then started fighting so I told her I was interested and had to go. hello @ enticeengageretain.com.au
