Orx company has continued...

Orx company has continued to call me many times a day although i have no dealings with them. THEY CALL AND HANG UP WHEN I ANSWER. Can i sue them for this harrassment its been going on for months, I bloc k a number they use another.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state/territory are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

NSW, SYD. they call from Melbourne

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

Just blocking the numbers they use there are very many, all get blocked, initially i just deleted them, it never ends

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

A long time ago I using my credit card placed $300 into this trading account to buy Crypto but rather than sell me Ripple, for instance they wanted me to trade i just requested a refund, not my impression from their advertising, in the end i complained to visa and got the refund. I did not trade this is the same company, FTO THEIR NAME
