Recently had a dispute with a small business regarding a purchase.
About a week and a half later I started getting bombarded with calls. Was averaging about 30 a day. Ignored them at first until it became clear they weren’t stopping.
Turns out my mobile number had been signed up to virtually every charity, service provider, call back form etc in Australia.
Most popular names I was signed up under seemed to be Jay, Gee and Jai 😀.
All callers were legit businesses / call centres and all were apologetic and removed my number after I explained what was happening.
Still get a few ones, but nothing like before.
The timing is probably pure coincidence, but thought I'd post in case anyone ever has something similar and wants to compare notes.
