Just called my home number. I don't know anyone in (08) and I am sure this is a telemarketer or similar. If unknown numbers don't leave a message end of story for me. 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.
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) Edith Cowan University Research Survey Centre- unmonitored message bank. No common sense. Called me at 11.00pm on a public holiday. feedback on health care in hospital. 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! 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.
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. 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 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 Call me at 10 pm wtf Caller: ECU research
Genuine research for a university study
scam Caller: Edith Cowan University
They identified themselves straight away, doing health survey, called in the middle of Sunday lunch, not appropriate really as Sundays usually family time. l replied would not participate at this time, they understood and were polite.
Caller: Joondalup Edith Cowan University
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.
I have call prefference set, so cold calling is supposed to be banned. It's bad enough that the charities are allowed to ignore that preference but some university calling from the otherside of the country is beyond the pale.
I'll send them a penalty claim and see how that goes.
