Skype number - lady called named "Carla Swear" she called my mother, acting as a lawyer who was calling on behalf of my son who was in jail in vegas due to accident, needed $2,500 before arraignment - caller told her not to call his dad (me) because he would get very angry. I then told her it was a scam, since my son was sitting next to me. - She was talking to me on her cell, while they were calling her again on her home number. idiots

A man called on my cell. I told him not to call me again. He immediately called back demanding an apology. I hung up. He called back and said he would call me a thousand times a day then he got very angry and started swearing. The things he said said I can not repeat. I gave the phone to my husband. The ma.n started swearing at him. I blocked the number.

I keep getting calls from a woman speaking Spanish for the person who had this phone number several years ago. I still get creditor calls for her even though I have had the number for nearly 5 years. It shows up on caller id as a California phone number. At one point in time, calls from this number were regarding past due T-Mobile accounts. I'm not sure about the person others are commenting about.

Some foreign language babbling, then laughter. Called 3x in 4 minutes! Unplugged phone after 3rd time it rang. Told on 2nd one that being reported for aggravated harassment...man then shouted threats and cussing in weird language!!

February 27th, 2014 Febe AZ

I missed the call on my cell. Attempted to call from a landline where a message told me it was a Skype call. A few minutes before the missed call I was requested to be added to my.dear550 Skype. I asked who it was, they said "i am milla". I asked if I knew her and received no response. Definitely a phishing trip.

February 19th, 2014 ClARICA MI

Left message that they understood I needed help with my computer It was a woman. Difficult to understand. They have already scammed my computer. Do get taken in by these folks.

turns out this was a friend in Burma/Myanmar trying to contact me via Skype.

February 13th, 2014 BEB CO

Got a call from this number at my work. I was away from my desk, so I was not there to receive it. They did not leave a message.

February 13th, 2014 dan OH

Just got a call on my Magic Jack connected phone from this number and the caller ID gave the name cassandra.lester . I didn't answer it, but towards the end of the call, the speakerphone part turned on and it started giving a busy signal.

February 9th, 2014 SG OK

Got a call this morning at 8am and it said the call was coming from "Palmdale Area". Wondered who would call from that area when it's 6am local time there. Some people must really be bored.

February 7th, 2014 ablflabkd CO

Numerous calls with this number displayed in caller ID. Wants to "park my car in your garage", "put my hot dog in your taco", etc. Municipal police research indicates this number is the default number displayed by a SKYPE user if they open an anonymous account. This number has been reported on MANY online complaint forums, and is obviously being used by a variety of scammers/perverts when they set up anonymous accounts. SKYPE is giving these perverts the ability to harass and scam people with impunity. SKYPE is also making money for CenuryLink now that I am paying for "services" to try and prevent these types of calls.

(661) 748-0241
I got call
and he said he got a missed call from me (or rather my phone number) from resume.com
which was legit because I did call a number I found on my bank acct
because I forgot my husband used the service.

odd they called back ... ick

January 28th, 2014 ckm of ohio OH

He knew my legal name. I also have an unlisted phone number and am on the do not call list. He said he was calling about a payment that I made in Feb. of last year about my computer maintenance program. He also called yesterday, but I was not home. Caller ID says that it was a Skype Caller. He has an Indian accent and the connection was not good, so I could barely understand him. I told him so and asked him to send me an email. He said he would. He politely hung up. I do not shop at Target, but I did charge at Kohl's.

January 28th, 2014 RC MD

Did not recognize number on Caller ID. Did not answer. They were calling me at my US Gov't office.

January 25th, 2014 RL WA

Called and purported to be calling about a hacking report from "Microsoft IT department". Heavily accented Indian male, identifying himself as Peter. Caller ID shows "peter,smith1576". My guess would be if this were truly a Microsoft employee it would show as a Microsoft telephone number.

January 25th, 2014 valgal NC

This is a Skype number. My daughter and son-in-law are stationed overseas and use Skype to call us and this is the number that appears on our caller ID. The number and "Palmdale Area" show on the caller ID. It must be a generic number that appears.

January 24th, 2014 Mattew FL

missed the call but when trying to return it said this call can not be completed because I'm trying to reach a Skype user, so this number is probably a generic outbound number for certain Skype calls, any number of actual people could show up as this number if they are using Skype to reach you.

January 19th, 2014 North Carolina NC

Just got called by this number saying they were going to come here and fuck me up, looking for money. They were clearly using a voice changer. Someone is trying to make people scared or prank someone hardcore. I hope the guy gets whats coming to him.

January 17th, 2014 Kate NY

I received a voicemail from 661-748-0241. She said her name is Denise and she is calling from the Student Loan Department. She said my loan is in default and my wages will be garnished. She said I needed to call her immediately at 616-277-2470. She had a heavy accent and there was a lot of background noise. I did not call back. Instead, I called my student loan company using the number on my monthly bill. They said my account is current and has never been even close to default. I am also on the Do Not Call Registy.

January 10th, 2014 SC WA

Called about a Craigslist as I posted. Acted interested but then got weird/crude. Said his wife had a question about the item and a male got on the line talking like a woman so I hung up. They called back 5 minutes later so I blocked the number.

This person called once and I ignored it cause i didn't recognize the number. A few hours later they tried again. I ignored it again. I got a voice mail. In a girly drunken sounding child's voice they said "I was calling to tell you...that last night was great" I am not responding or replying, but I was tempted after reading these to call and say "And where is my letter from Hogwarts?''

January 4th, 2014 DS CA

The person called me at 3:30 in the morning quite literally claiming to be Satan. It was a male voice. They knew my first name. When I hung up (which was when i figured out they were claiming to be Satan and not Stephen) they called back and I did not pick up. They left a confusing hard to hear message (as it was all whispered) about me making a deal with them (Satan) which i must fulfill. Given that I am an atheist I wasn't all that impressed. The fact that it is a number known for scams makes me seriously wonder what their game was. They are very clearly just a man whispering as I would expect a supernatural entity to be easier to make out.

Thinking this has to do with the hacking of Snapchat info

January 1st, 2014 Anonymous CA

The number is a number from the VOIP program known as Skype. The user can pay $2.99 a month to have unlimited calls to the US and Canada for 1 month. I'd just disregard every phone call by this number.

Called screaming gay

December 26th, 2013 Ashley NY

Whenever I answer, they claim to be some kid from my school, naming it before I've even said anything. They called me on Christmas Eve and then again a little bit ago. I don't know who this person is but I'm getting aggravated and he should be stopped. He sounds to be about 13 in age and he always hangs up before I get anywhere. Help?

December 23rd, 2013 gg

I got a voicemail saying I was accepted into the hogwarts school of wizardry.......


December 20th, 2013 Cyril Fletcher

Don't know if you can do this on every phone, but add them to the address book and then use the 'block' feature.

Works well on my Android.

December 19th, 2013 Brittany GA

I'm so glad I'm reading these messages . The same number called me asking for interest in a job as a logistics clerk . I tried to find the business on the BBB website and was unheard of. I was almost tricked but after these responses I'm no longer dealing with them . The people calling do have strong accents as well .

My phone was ringing and the caller ID read, AFreemanMD. I don't know who the hell that is, so I didn't answer. I don't answer calls that are not local, because I have to time for buffoonery. Idle people need to find constructive things to do with their free time!

November 24th, 2013 Joshy

I got 3 calls from this number while I was driving, so I did not answer, First at 9:12pm, then 9:14pm, finally at 9:24pm. I called back this number at about 10pm, and I got a recording saying "This call could not be completed because you are trying to reach a Skype user" I have a Reno, Nevada number, so I figured it would be someone I knew from California, but after reading the other 18 comments, I figured this is just a scam, or someone trying to phish for information. Looking at the dates everyone has also posted on here, these "people" have been very active using this "mirrored" number. My best suggestion, DON'T ANSWER!

November 13th, 2013 B. Lerch TX

It was identified only as a "Skype Call" with the same number 661 748-0241 and I have gotten several from the same number on my cell. It said "NANPA: Assigned 2008-05-29 Bkfd Main, California (Neutral Tandem-california, LLC - CA)" on the report on this "Who Called Us" page.

This is a legit person like you and I who purchased a very expensive item from me on eBay and paid by paypal, talk to me and is from Australia! Not anyone to worry about!

Has anyone had a vehicle repossessed or stolen lately? It is a repo company trying to scam you out of information that they can use to find you. They scam dealerships by holding their vehicles for ransom. Please secure your items from your vehicle.

Fucking Neil, an ex friend of mine, called me off this number. Didn't want to deal with me with a real number. Coward.

They called again today (8:05 PM). I get a robot saying "To accept, press 1. To leave a message, press 2." I pressed "hang up" instead.

August 22nd, 2013 Gordon TX

Got a call around 8:15 PM from this number to my Google Voice number. Nobody answered after I said "Hello" several times. A few minutes later, I got a voicemail transcript that read like a standard moron-Engrish scam email.

August 15th, 2013 Andy WA

I got a call from this number and the caller claims to be from Microsoft. He said they detected a virus in my computer and they needed to fix it. The only problem is that I am on a Mac and don't use windows. This is a scam for sure and for certain.

July 30th, 2013 JJ SC

Has anyone gotten a call from SCAMMER named Rose at IbSolutions or Global Solutions (661) 748-0241?
This lady called. Identified herself as Rose from Global Solutions. (The caller ID said Rose.Ibsolutions at (661) 748-0241 from Burbank, CA). She said that she was calling about my computer. That she was from the company that handles the "server" for my computer, and the they had found some 'glitches" in the software.

She wanted me to go to my computer, so she could talk me through the process to get those "glitches" off my computer.

I told her I didn't know her nor her company, and I wasn't giving her any information. And, I asked, 'are you with Yahoo, or anyone I would know...?'.

She was belligerent and stated again that she was with the company that handles the server for my computer.

I told her to take me off her list, and told her that I was going to report her to internet fraud.

She snapped back really sharp and said, "Well, you have a nice day Sir! "...and hung up!

Has anyone else gotten a call from this number?

What can we do about these people...?

June 13th, 2013 Jenn Reed IL

Very thick Asian accent. I just told them to remove me from call list and hung up. No cb's as of yet.

May 4th, 2013 Cami CO

Received a call on my cell phone, lady with Oriental accent saying she was from China. I told her I do not know you and want my name taken off your list. I then hung up and immediately got a call back. ID showed California. I immediately tried to put the number on my reject list but had to wait until I could reject the second call. They actually logged three calls before I could get it on my reject list, at 9:00, 9:01, and 9:02.

Exactly the same thing that happened to Fritz happened to me.

October 24th, 2012 Fritz WA

Like many of the other reports, my call was a back-to-back assault with the first call showing UNAVAILABLE on the caller ID screen and the 2nd call displayed (661) 748-0241. Both calls were to my cell phone. In the past, my cell phone had almost NO troublesome calls like this but that seems to be changing. I'm getting more and more "junk" calls on my cell phone which is somewhat disturbing. The caller left a voice mail but I just deleted it without hearing the caller's message - I'm sure it was just one more "scheme machine" call.

How do I stop them from calling?

  1. Ask the unwanted caller to stop calling and put you on their do not call list (they are legally required to comply).
  2. If your number is registered with the National Do Not Call Registry you can file a complaint with the FTC.
  3. Block them with a call blocker or something like Nomorobo.
