Automated rubbish Caller: MCNAIR YELLOW SQUARES
Its a survey for SA Health. I just blocked them, since they dont listen when you politely tell them to go f*ck themselves.
Calls several times when you answer there is someone on the other side of the line but doesn’t talk and then hangs up Caller: Fake Caller
(08) 8470 6997 —Fake Fake Fake—-
They get the same number as SA health with few digit changes they got 97 at last whereas govt SA have (08) 8470 6999 at last which they are using for the surveys. But these people are scammer and want to access ur data and mis use the information. So aware of them
And block this number
Caller: McNair Survey Company Re: SA Health - Data Collection for many different surveys
it is McNair Yellow Squares calling who are a survey company employed by SA health to get data for them,
as stated on SA Health fact sheet further down the page on first page of google search when you check up this number.
also if you go to McNair website it says a few numbers on the main page but up the top it said "have you received a call from us?" and when you go to the next page the list shows this number in their numbers
I have added the list below and also the hours you might get hassled by them, if they are annoying you, either just block their numbers or ring them and asked to be removed from their lists because they have more than one number they can call from.
If you receive a missed call from the following numbers, it is likely that we were trying to contact you to participate in one of a variety of surveys we are conducting:
(02) 9066 5720
(08) 7082 9680
(08) 8470 6997
(08) 8470 6999
(02) 8287 0804
(03) 9958 8920
or a text message from:
0427 626 247 (MCNAIR)
0481 071 481
0417 646 738
0408 089 994
In most cases calls are made randomly to landlines or mobile numbers across Australia. In some cases when we call mobiles we will first need to check if you live in the area in which a given survey is being conducted.
While none of our surveys are compulsory, our clients and ourselves appreciate your participation. In order to ensure that our surveys are representative, McNair yellowSquares is permitted to call both silent numbers and numbers that are on the Do Not Call Register. However, you may request not to be called by us.
Note that for most surveys the Government require us to make several attempts to call your number. From time to time the system may mistakenly hang up on you. This may occur during peak interviewing times. We apologise for any inconvenience.
All telephone surveys conducted by McNair yellowSquares may be monitored or recorded for training and quality control purposes. Respondents have the option to discontinue the survey at any time.
McNair yellowSquares conducts interviews during the following hours:
Monday to Friday: 10am to 8:30pm
Saturday: 10am to 5pm
Sunday: 10am to 5pm (as required)
Blocked them, no problems from then on. Caller: McNair Yellow Square

Caller: McNair Yellow Squares
Caller is calling regarding surveys on behalf of government. Due to this they are able to call silent numbers and numbers on the do not call register. They will call multiple times. Easiest thing to do is answer once, ask for them to not call again. They should then remove you as a declined to participate. If you do not answer the call it’s considered unsuccessful contact and they will continue. [source: http://mcnair.com.au/surveys/]

scammers It sounded like a male voice who said "your a bitch" to someone in the background as it was very faint.... when I said hello, he went silent but sounded like he was travelling in a car. Thanks for interrupting my ice coffee moron!! yeah, you keep reporting buddy! Someone will listen one day, if they don't, report them again using a moderate amount of capital letters - that should show them that you are REALLY cross. Don't worry - they forced your hand. received call from same number at same time of day for several days but calls disconnects whenever I answer I am on the do not call registry why am I still getting these calls. I will report their asses! then report the registry as it doesnt work it seems..
