Still spam as far as I'm concerned. I work shift work and don't like being called every week from some company wanting anything for free from me... (my time is not free and neither is theirs so they should pay people to do surveys) This is not a scam. It is genuine research. Prior to the call I received a letter from the Dept of Health confirming that I had agreed to be surveyed on health matters from time to time (which is correct). It said that in the near future I would receive a call. Hence the missed call.
Everything is above board and legitimate. Nothing to be worried about. You can decline if you have changed your mind about participating.
No common sense. Called me at 11.00pm on a public holiday. It's reassuring to find out that this is a legitimate caller and not a scammer, however, I do not appreciate receiving a business call from a stranger after 8pm. Only family is welcome to call me after dark, however, they tend not to because they know that I have young children & don't want disturbances at bedtime. ECU - if you want people to answer your calls try calling at a decent hour! Edith Cowan University Research Survey Centre- unmonitored message bank. feedback on health care in hospital. They rang on a Saturday evening in late July, I found out later it was from Edith Cowan University in W.A. They rang again Sunday 20th August and confirmed they were from there. Research project or survey or something. Wanted to speak to an employed person. Call me at 10 pm wtf My 13 yr old son just got a missed call from this number 10pm at night. Why would they be calling him? Is it something he may have signed up on? Caller: Edith Cowan uni Joondalup
Got a call asking for feedback about a recent hospital visit. I’m scared of scams so I asked for their number and called in to speak to their boss. Really is all legitimate and I did the survey. No personal questions either.
I have had 8+ missed calls in work hours from this number this week. Several a day. When I’m working in a call centre I can’t answer calls from anyone, let alone unsolicited “researchers”. No message left. According to other comments it’s research about hospital but since I’ve only been to an expensive private hospital for plastic surgery I have no idea why they’d want to talk to me. My boob job is great, thanks. No I don’t want to tell researchers about it for “research” and want to know how they got my private unlisted mobile number. There are triggers that make me suspicious, so I didn't answer. If this is legit why not leave a message? If it is computer dialling surely they have text capability.

Called on a Sunday at 1pm. Requesting survey. The first question asking to rate my general health on a scale.
A little too personal to be asked by some stranger on a Sunday, my first day off for the week.
Caller: Edith Cowan University
CALLED AT 8.30 AT NIGHT VERY RUDE RINGING AT THAT TIME.
It's from the Edith Cowan University research centre. I asked how they got my mobile number as it is not listed & I don't give it out. they said they got it from the white pages, I'm not listed, quite rude responses over the phone when I explained this and hung up on me :) I called back number (08) 6304 4100 reached IVR for a school called Edith Cowan University. It's from the Edith Cowan University research centre - Mine was for the Department of Fisheries this number is still alive and it keep calling me. how can i stop it??? This number called me and did not leave a message.
I called the number back, it is Edith Cowan University Research Survey Centre.
The number is not attended and they ask you to leave a message and your phone number.
You guessed it, I did not leave a message,
Karma = what goes around comes around
and Edith Cowan University has earnt the title of TRASH
Had a call at 5.15pm on my mobile. When I answered the phone, they hung up immediately.

Optus advised that this number has been disconnected. So probably scammers are using it.
