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.
Edith Cowan University Research Survey Centre- unmonitored message bank. 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) 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. 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.
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 No common sense. Called me at 11.00pm on a public holiday. wtf Called me at 9:14pm, which I didn't answer. How friggin rude, who calls people at that time of night! Caller: Edith Cowan University
This is a number used by ECU Joondalup for doing phone surveys.
Called after 8pm wanting to conduct a health survey, rude tw*ts
Caller: Someone was talking and ended call at about 3 seconds
I called back and it is Edith Cowan University. I asked myself the question.... is someone getting funding to call random numbers to get a statistical outcome without completing the task properly.
Fisheries research, genuine call
The only problem I have with the caller, is that they call Saturday's and Sunday's and usually late in the evening
