Most Wanted Spam and Scam Callers in AU and NZ

Tellows is back again with the weekly update on most wanted spam and scam callers in AU and NZ.

1. 044725543 from Wellington – New Zealand with a Tellows Score of 6
2. 049244455 from Wellington – New Zealand with a Tellows Score of 7
3. 049747222 from Wellington – New Zealand with a Tellows Score of 7
4. 0800222378 TelstraClear Tollfree – New Zealand with a Tellows Score of 8
5. 043823400 from Wellington – New Zealand with a Tellows Score of 4

Telemarketing calls are indeed an annoying thing. Sometimes we get them even when we ask them to stop, or when we are on the Do Not Call list. Even worse is when you repeatedly get calls from the numbers that hung up as soon as you answer, not even letting you ask who they are.
Tellows user Bob wrote the last comment to the number 044725543 :

Have started getting missed calls from this number today (26/02/13). They don’t call long enough for me to answer, only for a couple of seconds.

Who are these mysterious callers from Wellington ? For the couple of weeks already they are our Weekly Top 5 leaders and still nobody knows who they really are. Unbelievable !
Scammers are pretty active all over New Zealand and Australia and you are very welcome to be as active as they are and provide us more and more information on the most annoying numbers.

Don’t hesitate to share your experiences with us,
Till next week, Take Care!

Don’t you hate getting those annoying calls on your cell phone? It’s bad enough to get calls from Telemarketers, PPI claim companies or debt collection companies, but to me it is even worse to get them from unknown callers. What do they want from me? Why are they calling?
Our 3 Top Leaders this week are numbers that are annoying our users for a months already, however the question remains – who are they?

Tellows user Alex commented on the number 044725543 :

This number is calling me for 4 weeks now.
When I answered there’s no one in the line.
Can somebody help?

Another tellows user Eva shared her experience with us on this number 049747222:

this number called me and hung up when i answered.
when i’m fast enough there’s nobody on the line.
I called them back and a woman with asian accent said: “Thank you for calling mycharity.com”

Anyone knows something about this?

If you have any information about these numbers please be so kind and share it with us!
