Yet another phone beggar from a bogus charity. These annoying scammers should be shut down. These people rely on their hearing (and their excruciatingly ugly linguistic tricks). So here is how I deal with them: 1) get a very cheap plastic whistle, wait until they start talking and blast away the evil in their ears - they won' sue you for physical damage to their ears because they would have to identify themselves, and then you could counter sue for psychological stress; 2) use a language that is very rare- I use several extinct Indo-European languages, but a friend says Klingon dialects work very well; 3) let these critters know that you, and others, keep records of these numbers and share them so that we have almost a party game of "Guess who bothered me at dinner?" - a friend who teaches internet safety to young children is developing this into a family home-work project (she has got some Greek grannies involved, and the learning and entertainment has been wonderful). In short: do not let a 'goc oen' ruin your life - use the challenges these poor souls of the modern devil provide you with for your amusement, learning opportunities and uniting your family and friends in a useful common purpose against real, modern evilness. Be aware!!
Difficult to understand accent, posing as a charity organization, bowel and cancer. Wanting to offer items for your donation and your credit card details. Really???!!!
I blocked this number after they hung up in my ear when I answered the phone. I then called the number and reached a recorded message, an Asian voice, saying it was some company that had phoned me on behalf of its "charity partners". Clearly a scam - block the number or don't answer. I am so sick of these pests! Idiot trying to get me to turn on my computer so they can reset my id number, otherwise my internet will be closed down for 3 months. Laughed off this Indian imbecile. scammers got sold my number from the cancer council. I see this number is up and running again saying thanks for donations to bowel cancer etc etc. How noticeable that these nuisance calls from overseas had stopped during the corona virus pandemic but are now clearly back on the job again! Caller: I don’t answer
Why if most people are on the no call registry we still get these calls ,,,. Can anyone tell me , by the way I’m on the no call list
Caller: PEOPLE WHO ARE SCAM CALLERS.
WHY DO YOU CALL MY NUMBER & NEVER LEAVE A MESSAGE. DO NOT CALL ME EVER AGAIN.
Scam call, do not answer.
Caller: Telemarketers not Charities
Most charities these days arent worth a dime. Especially those that pay overseas call centres to call you on their behalf. By the time all these marketers are paid out and all the big wigs and media lickspits get their free overseas trips how much of your donation actually gets to the intended recipient?
Rang 6:40pm. Some male voice talking fast so i asked for his number and ill call back later and he said umm no. So i said well dont ring my number thanxs and hanged up! Im on do not call list as well for a very good reason too! If i didnt give out my number, then they dont have the right to call me! Piss off and go home a**holes! Its dinner time. Leave ppl in peace with the dinners and their nite time! On two occasions now I have had a lot of fun with these calls
Leading them on saying I am waiting for computer to start, or don't see the screen they are describing etc etc.
Eventually telling them I think its a scam.
First time I got called a "bloody bugger" how harsh.
Just last week he must have taken a training course in verbal abuse.
It was quite foul and funny at the same time with his weird accent.
Call centre. Long pause before they say anything then launch into an unintelligible script in a very strong Indian type accent. Have no idea what they were saying. Hung up on them. Caller: Bad acccent
Can not pronounce bowel cancer. Knew my name yet had to ask for confirmation hang up with loud bang. Oops dropped the phone
Caller: (08) 9742 1218
Very annoying receiving calls at all hours just ignoring now bogus charoty for bogus cause...scammers!
I answer the call and let them start their story, then I ask them to hold....and hold...and hold while I cook dinner. I return to the phone every few minutes to tell them I'm still listening, they are still talking and in the end they hang up. had several calls never leaves a message Caller: Multi Direct
Caller with strong accent said calling on behalf of bowel cancer research. Wanted me to buy items from their store. Told them I wasn't interested. They then wanted to post me a pen to buy. Told them not to send anything. Very pushy.
I didn't answer.
I have a display phone and can hear or see the number so don't answer at all, then block the number once the call stops.
That way you're not wasting your time or getting cross.
