I answered the call every night for a week and they hang up! Now they are blocked! Calls from this number are important health research being conducted on behalf of South Australia Health. see www.mcnair.com.au/surveys Caller: Some bloody indian prick
Rattled on about the NBN and the changes made to infrastructure I told them to jump in the lake I got fiber to the premises not like all the other boffins of australia and to suck a fat one I hung up and downloaded more pornhub at amazing download speeds
This number has called me continuously for 5 days now....sometimes 3 times a day. When I answer, they hang up. I've called the number back and it's just a recording saying if I have a missed call, they will call back later. If I get ONE MORE CALL, I'm contacting the ombudsmen. This is harassment! Then they should say hello instead of ringing at least 10 times and when I answer they simply hangup. I would love to give them my opinion. But instead I will find out more and make one hell of a storm about this Damned ph number.

If you receive a missed call from the following number (08) 8470 6999 or a text message from
0427 626 247 (MCNAIR) it is likely that we were trying to contact you to participate in one of a variety of surveys we are conducting.
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 here.
Note that for most surveys the Government require us to make several attempts to call your number.
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)
Firstly these calls are NOT as random as you would have us believe. They have been calling us for almost 2 weeks often BEFORE 9.00am and as late as 8.00pm, same with weekends. I guess they are unaware of acceptable times. I don't care what the government require - they simply add to being a pain-in-the-a&! And it really stinks and is, (IMO) imorale that the government, you lot & others who are given carte-blanche to disregard silent numbers and the Do Not Call Register. There is a reason why people use those and one of the reasons is we don't wish to be constantly bothered by the likes of you and others like you. How about you give us your home & mobile numbers so we can call you all hours of the day and night - would you like that.
This number keeps calling me & hang up when I answer, I have blocked their number, but they still keep calling
Now I'm receiving texts, saying that it's McNair Research & I've been randomly chosen to be involved in their health survey?????
Leave me alone PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!
Rang, answered. The robot-caller then diverts you to a person. You hear them squawking in the background, but they don't talk. Rang back, put go to a message machine. Bunch of f*ckwits
Caller: (08) 8470 6999

Dr Google reckons this number belongs to SA Health but strange that caller doesn't speak if call is answered - number now blocked & if the caller happens to get lucky we're not answering. The other odd thing is we live in NSW & don't give a rats about SA Health
Well Matt Balogh, we don't give a damn about your mcnair.com.au/surveys - these calls are an intrustion, unwanted and WE DON'T WANT THEM ANYMORE! What right have you to annoy the public day in, day out - especially those of us who have unlisted numbers. How does your lot get access to unlisted numbers??? And don't bother to give us excuses or reasons why you and your lot decide you have the right to exploit your resources to get hold of unlisted phone numbers. You people have NO RIGHT to make such calls when you know full well it's harassment. Answer this, when one of your drones calls specific numbers over and over ad nauseum and never received a reply or even a hang up - why don't they give up?? I mean it's obvious nobody wants to speak with them. Do us all a favour - leave us the hell alone!
Sick of this number ringing and hanging up and in Sth Aust it shows up as a local call. McNair market research called my number on a daily basis until I answered. Introduced themselves as carrying out an SA Health survey. After letting them know I am on the Do Not Call Register, they stated that it was in front of them and my number wasn't on it. After hanging up I double checked the Do Not Call Register and turns out they were lying after all. Be careful with this. A Woman named Nicole said they were from NBN (recorded message) going to cut off my internet. Well if you get one of these hang up Immediately and call your service provider.. They call and hang up! Annoying! Caller: McNair yellow squares
Called but did not respond and hung up when I answered. I blocked them and they are still trying to call me.
survey group. Caller: SA Health Survey
Survey from SA Health, takes about 20mins. This is important for all South Australians. If your not interested just tell them no, it's not a scam
Caller: A man with a very thick Indian accent
Said doing an SA health survey.... Told him we were all dying.... He said have a good evening and hung up. Very hard to understand what he was saying. I don't think he was a suitable candidate to speak to people. Couldn't have been dinky di, he couldn't speak let alone do a survey!!!!
