Nusiance telephone calls

Post by Ivanerrol » Sat 29 Nov, 2014 5:28 pm

For the last week have been peppered by nuisance incoming calls from a political party with a recorded message of propaganda.
On my Mobile Fone - business line
This political party must have deep pockets with the amount of calls being made.
I suspect that funds are being provided by unknowing employees in their weekly dues.

I even received a call while in the voting booth - at 16:30 in the afternoon - nearly closing time.
This is crossing the line.

Yeah same, I had one at 2pm today (after voting) asking for my opinions on the Vic. election....as I was tinkering with a sticky sunroof switch on the CE at the time, you can imagine my response to the call..... Also what is going on with the foreign call centres, we are getting 2 to 3 a day ATM, and we are on the 'Do not call register' :banghead:

Inundated with foreign calls as well.
90% scams.
Even get text scams - Telstra and Bank phishing.

It's about time world governments started getting serious with these sub continent, eastern European and African scammers.
They should be declared financial terrorists subject to rendition and a lengthy stay in a holiday camp such as Guantanamo.

These calls can be easily stopped by tracing the IP addresses and tracks.

That problem seems to be even bigger in Australia as here. Since we have severe penalties here, it got less and less.

We even "lost" a friend in Melbourne, because we cannot call him anymore. He just doesn't answer his phone at all :banghead:
