phone rings three rings - not even long enough to turn around and answer the darn thing - yep another on to block! Caller claimed to be calling from the Rain Forest Conservation fund and was seeking donations.
Could not tell if the caller was actually calling from the Rain Firest fund or was a third party acting for the Rain Forest Conservation fund. Decided to act on the side of caution and did not donate. No matter how convencing their arguement was.
Wish theses people would stop calling 4 times a day you block the number and they call you again on a different number Just another scammer, another number to block. One day I will be able to yell Bingo. arseholes ring at 10.45pm at night, woke up the kids - ffs, didnt answer as unknown number Caller: Lorraine Stevens from Rain Forrest Conservation Fund
I think this lady is just a telemarketer for a number of charity calls. As I now recognise her voice she has called here so many times. So I just say hello and then no thank you after she asks "I hope you are well" - she uses that phrase every time. I wish I could stop them calling, as I don't listen and therefore don't donate either.
Haha I do the same myself...tell them Im working for the FEDS and they soon hang up. Caller: BOT / ROBOCALL
Cal received from this no. claiming to be representing one of Aus's leadin charities... rang back in 5 mins as verification, an older male Aussie voice on an answ machine claiming thx for calling back one of Aus's leading charities.... can't take your call right now...we'll call you back".....this sounds like a sophisticated Tele-Scam using sophisticated answer filtering software.....
.................DO NOT ANSWER / BLOCK IMMEDIATELY......
this string & record of all other numbers claiming same should be sent to ASIC / Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman as Complaints ................the enormous rise in SCAM CALLS ws recently raised in media.....
LMFAO Caller: A bot
I'm going to set up a fake escort ad on locanto and put this number on it.
The call is a regular bases , no message and sometimes stay on line to see if you answer the call, all phone calls are answered by answering machine. another scam Caller: (08) 9513 2281
I've had many calls from the exact same voice over last 6 months - female, "English", educated. Originally the spiel was along the lines of "We represent a range of charities trying to improve our effectiveness.....". The one today was "We represent the rain forest..." with specific mention of the Daintree. Exactly the same voice, exactly the same inflections....I am certain that the "caller" is a bot. A really good bot, but a bot none the less. If you've got the time try engaging in conversation about any given topic and ask her specific questions that any normal person might know (I went with "I like your accent - are you English? I've only been to the United Kingdom once - and only to the capital city - do you know the one? What's it's name? What's the capital of the UK?"). You'll find that she will either revert to one of her standard answers (which will make no sense) or disconnect the call. I have to give it to the scammers - it's a relatively good programe - it's not AI because the responses will be really limited in this type of telephone conversation - but the tone and inflection are very impressive.
no message=blocked number Claim to be fund raising for Rainforest Conservation. I hung up. Possible scam ???? Caller: some dumb bitch
another freaking scam, answered, they started the spiel and I told them i was a police officer. they hung up quickly.
just another dumb scammer
Caller: Don’t know
Never talk just answered. Nothing important never rang back.
Smells because those claiming to represent a major charity are using different CID numbers & when called back you get an answer service. They fail to ID the charity when they call raising a big red flag.
They are persistent calling numerous times.
Caller: Rain forest ?
Very persistent asking for money to save the rain forests & animal. She asked could I give a donation of $55, I said “NO”, continuing to ask could I perhaps give $40, answer “NO!” again. Kept going on about giving some money’s ..... bloody hell how many times to they not understand what “NO” MEANS ?? So I hung up on her...............
SCAM call , ring 1 or 2 and hangs up wants YOU to ring back
call often, never leave a message

When tried to call back said the number was disconnected. Probably a scam.
