0291125000 been bothering you?

Over the last week or so, this Sydney phone number has been calling my mobile approximately ten times a day. When I answer, the caller (or machine as it probably is) hangs up. I googled the number (as perhaps you, dear visitor have done), and it came up with the details of this company:

The Privacy Officer
AEGON Direct Marketing Services Australia Pty Ltd
PO Box H63
Australia Square NSW 1215
Tel: +61 2 8207 9007
Fax: +61 2 8207 9099
Email: gavin.tarbitt@adms-asia.com.au

or try the MD:

CRAIG ORTON
Managing Director
Tel: +61 2 8207 9000
Email: Craig.Orton@adms-asia.com

I spoke to Craig, and voiced my disdain for his company harrassing me. He took my details and said he would deal with it. If you're having similar problems, I suggest you drop him a line.

Apparently they are working for our good friends at the Commonwealth Bank. Perhaps try and lob a complaint at them as well. Good luck.

i've been having the same problem.

spoke to viola (complaints manager) and was pretty easy to get number removed. it seems they have a glitch with their auto-dialler.

Thank you sooo much, they called me 5 times today!

I rang and left a message with Gavin and expect to be removed.
