    Anyone else get a phone survey call tonight specifically about the CHCH tragedy?

    Hi Guys a real weird one but one that sent my radar off.
    Got a call from a call centre (noise in background) on my mobile - now thats a first! from someone claiming to be from a company called Arc Research (as I heard it) phone number was not hidden so 07 981 7324 - ring back has auto cut off set up.

    Lady asking straight off the bat say I wonder if it would be alright to ask you a few questions about last weeks tragedy in Christchurch. Yes - I say so who are you with again (says) and then I ask... say can you please disclose what this information is going to be used for please? - and who the client is? answer sorry our client is confidential - then said nothing more.

    I said sorry but if you're not going to disclose what the survey info is being used for or who the client is I'm not answering you questions and ended the call.

    Sorry guys I know I should have played along, but I was so pissed off I didn't want to take the call or give them anything.

    Be interested if anyone runs into this mob or actually understands what its used for as my mind flew to a approval spot pole for weighing up govt response, but then my mind went to something a bit more negative for us as a group and this was a final check...

    Anyhow if I'm off target sorrry - but if anyone knows what this mob are up to and why they'd want to understand my feelings around the cHCH tragedy I'd be really keen to know more.

    Cheers Fella's
