Number belongs to My Charity Survey. No clue if this is real or a scam Number came up as +061730734207. Red flag for me! Did some research & found details below. .... talk about Pandora's Box!
'Beware of My Charity Survey
just had a call, seemed like a simple survey until I listened to the "call will be recorded for teaching purposes, bla bla bla...
In bla bla I caught a comment along the lines of; that you agree for our charity partners to call you about goods and services..... you can opt out at any time by filling out a form on our website...
No thankyou !
But it is just a simple yes and no answer survey
you mentioned charities calling, I don't want unsolicited calls thankyou.
today is just a simple survey with yes and no answers, that is all we require.
No thankyou, no no no. hung up.
Beware, this is a way to get around the do not call register by sneaking in your approval for other people to call.'
Caller ID showed 061730734207 [+61 (07) 3073 4207]. Caller identified themselves as "My Charity Survey". To me, the +61 means the caller was calling from outside Australia ... big giveaway that it is an overseas call centre apart from the heavy accent and audible background chatter. Surveys with yes/no answers? Screw that! The calls are recorded "for quality and training purposes" (my arse they are!) ... once some of these jokers have the sound bytes they want from you they can use them to do whatever they want. Hang up straight away or screen/block calls. They also ask permission for other "...charity partners to call you about goods and services but you can opt out at any time by filling out a form on our website ..." and in doing so give them more personal details thank-you very much! This is how they get around the Do Not Call Register. 'Tis the season to be scammin', Fa la la la la, La la la la! Ring roughly same time each day. First time I answered, no response so hung up. Now reject and have blocked. Dont do the survey as they will get many charities to call you asking for donations.
I made the mistake in doing the "Survey" and I paid the price. Took many months before the calls stopped.
This number called me today, when I answered phone, no one speak, I said 3 times " hello", no one responded. That's weird, it's a possible scam. I also had a call from this number when I answered no one spoke then they hung up They rang, didn't leave a message - looks suspicious - I get quite a few of these calls Caller: +61 6173074207
Just received a text message saying I'd missed a call from this number .... Phone hadn't rang and the number wasn't listed in my missed calls! After reading all the other comments on here I couldn't block the number quick enough. Cheers everybody
They call me, I answer but I get no reply for about 3 seconds, then they hang up. Possible scam. Rang but didn't respond when call answered Dodgey number, came up on screen with country code doubled up +61 6173074207. Didn't answer and they didn't leave a msg. Has to be a scam. Caller: My Charity Survey
Multiple contacts on random days and times for the last few months, Ive finally cracked the s**** and blocked both recent callers on (07) 3073 4207 and (07) 3073 4209 (Brisbane number and I live in Brisbane). They know my name and number - Im also on the do not call register.
Its a call centre, I think my voicemail tricks their cold call screening to think I answered the phone so by the time the call connects they think I'm on the phone waiting for them... My voice mail picks up the conversation with "me". The generic greeting and they are calling from My Charity Survey, friendly male, heavy accent and audible background chatter, he starts disclosing calls are recorded and asks how am I today? Starts to talk about donations, takes them a bit to realise no one is there, you hear the frustration then he terminates the call advising will contact again later.. I block them but the jerks have my number somehow and just call off another phone line. I never participated in their survey and yet they continue to call.

Call came in today. Showed a Brisbane number. Long delay on the line. Asked where they were calling from. Caller said Philippines. How can they then show a telephone number from Brisbane?
