i meet a woman on match.com by the name of tracy lorenzii. we emailed each other for about one month then she asked for my cell number. once we started texting they started asking for money for there sick mothers medication. said she was in nigeria with her mom and would be back to anderson sc soon. i told them i couldnt send any money and the texts stopped. i did some research and the number was linked to a lot of similar incidents. if someone you meet online is far away from home for some reason, and talks about antiques. do not give them your cell number. most people i found nigeria,antiques,and serious problems with there life all were up front very soon. so do NOT send them any money it is dif a scam.

Still at it. I run a bakery on the side - asked for 350 cupcakes for 'her' daughter's wedding next weekend. Then requested I charge twice as much on the credit card and pay the 'courier' - when I pushed back about it and said it sounded scam like the person got rude and persisted. Number blocked.

While shopping PennySaver USA, for an English Bulldog Puppy every contact so far has been a scammer. They all want you to send them money for air transport by Western Union to a foreign country. They are all medical people according to them working out of the country and need to sell the puppies and ship by air freight. In each instance I told them I was not sending money outside the US period to a name not previously mentioned in transaction. Puppies were according to ad were in Fulton, GA. Which is a 3 hour drive from my home. I told them I would drive over pick up the puppy and pay them. Otherwise I was not interested in their puppy. That was the last urgent text an email I received urging me to rush to send them the money. This number appeared on my text messages from talk.bertila: I am betting its another country outside the US. My other one was Littoral, Cameroon. So Beware of these Scammers.
text messages/ SMS (internet originated text messages)from yahoo messenger show up on the person getting the text with the number 92466501 and with that person's screen name.
no escuentro nada
when I googled wramona61 ,I went to a dating site called matchdoctor. Bogus marketing obviously
Says name is mark nelson from Waco on dating sites
I did not speak to him he called and said I had put my name in to win a new Car. I did not win the Car but I did win one of the top 3 prizes. He said his name was Billie and he knows I am on the do not call list and this call is not a solicitation call he left this 800# and extension 120. I called and there was a answering machine I did not leave my name.
Maybe that's just yahoos #.
Hey Mike is your X-Wifes first name Susan last name start with a S.in Ma. by any chance? Might be same person screwing with us.
I got a text from my ex wife when she uses her friends computer 92466501
It's just a scammer tring to get something from us or you don't give them any info about you . I was on cupit.com and that site is full of scamers , they will tell you what you want to here then they will say how much they love dont fall for it . If it sounds too good to be true it's not !
This is just another con game rip off do not replay to this person who ever he is
Same story. I HAD entered a contest to win a car just 1 month ago, so thought it was legit at first. I did give my email and name. How stupid! I knew better but sucked in. Does anyone know what he can do with the info.? I am already on do not call list and did file a complaint.
Thanks for sharing stories. Wish I would have known to check first.
Same story: Fredrick left message that (someone unidentified) had won a car, one of the top four prizes, as a result of a form filled out in the last '4 - 18 months". Claimed to know this number was on the do not call registry and would not be calling if we hadn't filled out a form. Said to call him back at 866-312-9553 X243. Seemed very vague so I looked it up and found this page...
I have received the call twice from "patrick" with the same offer everyone else reports. I have always thought this was a timeshare or other scam so I never returned "patrick's" calls. After the latest call today I decisded to look for the information on the Mitchell Communications group and this phone number. I'm glad I did because it confirmed my suspicions.
this person trying to meet me for love
Call back and got a recorded message informed them that the number they call was on the do not call registry and will report them if I receive any other calls
Prize Fulfillment Center 1 of 4 major prizes
Got call from telicia. Didn't fill anything out. 90 min of my time yeah right. Same old scam. Don't bother just make complaint to donotcall.gov
Same story: Patrick left message that (someone unidentified) had won a car, one of the top four prizes, as a result of a form filled out in the last '4 - 18 months". Claimed to know this number was on the do not call registry and would not be calling if we hadn't filled out a form. Seemed very vague, mumbled and questionable so I looked it up and found this page... Not very surprising really.
Patrick from Mitchell Comm blah blah blah, call me back TollFree 877-279-3457 ext 243
Same as others reported.
These calls are very annoying. Can't something be done to prevent these bogus callers from infringing on our privacy and valuable time? They prey on the elderly and those who think "just maybe this is legit."
I got a call and it say patrick telling me I won a car and i told them i live alone so that said it was for a married couple. seems like scam to me
Scam call on bogus prizes
que honda gordo
Call me laci
Thank the Lord, that so many people that received call from either Tony or Pat did not fall for the scam!!!
Got the same message from "patrick" at 708-833-8471. Mitchells Communication. Can this kind of call be reported to anyone or anywhere in addition to the Do Not Call Registry?
he loves to call me Princess
Also...his number 92466501 is suppose to be from yahoo messenger with a yahoo.com address. Im not sure if this 92466501 number is assigned to ONE person or if it is just a number letting you know it is from yahoo messenger?? I have a name and cell phone number. I have never met this man in person so I have no idea if he is who he says he is?
I have been talking to a man from Lexington VA...have never met him in person...i have a name but he may not be who he says he is. when i finaly decided to meet him in person he wouldn't meet me. I have now deleted all his texts but can't get this one last text that i responded to to delete off my cell phone. 7-31-10
got a voicemail from "Patrick", you've won a prize blah blah blah. Not calling back.
I just keep getting blank text messages from this number and the number 92466601. Both numbers sent a text at the same time. I keep texting back .'s to see if I get something but i'm not going to anymore. Seriously though, what's up with this?
this is an sms scam just deleted the mgs and never respond
They call me every hour on the hour btwn 8am-6pm. Wish these calls would stop! I guess if I keep sending the to v/m..they'll eventually get the point.
This is an SMS scam "date-o-pod.net" Just delete the msg and never respond.
Got message indicating they were trying to collect on a debt. I knew I had no outstanding debts. Called them, gave them the ph. number and they said they were trying to collect on a debt on the name of a guy that used to have my phone number almost 10 years ago. I used to get calls for him all the time. Told the guy this and he was very nice and said he would remove the number. Hope others have as good of luck with them. It's worth it to give them a call to get the calls stopped especially if you know you don't have any outstanding debts.
His real name is Tony Takadis. He is a Greek guy.
He has called our house multiple times and never says anything except "sorry wrong number" and hangs up. so weird
We bought two new Boost celphones and activated them just yesterday. Starting this evening my wife has been INUNDATED with vulgar, nasty texts (b8tch and f8git were the most polite words used) from this number all night. She's afraid to check her text messages (thus didn't receive two important ones from me). You better believe I'm going to report it.
this number keeps telling an ex of mine and her girlfriend acting like me its pissing me off i want to know who it is bc they r ruining my relatioship and im not about to have someone take my identity!!!
Sending me creepy text messages, knows things about my personal life. Told me his name is Jason.
This was not a telemarketing call so it was in my best interest to call back, that I entered a contest within the last 18 months and won a car...call back. Glad I found this website - it's obviously a scam.
We got a call on our maching saying we had won a car - he did not mention the winning party's name. When I returned the call, no one was available Our callers name was Patrick.
They said I entered a contest to win a car, which I didn't.
I am sick of these people calling - never a message, though.
I received a text message from 92466501 regarding Obama and government grant money. I do not even have an ATT cell phone. Caller id for this text message showed "hendrikajosexr01m1". I also received a text message saying a Yahoo user was trying to send me a text message right before the message arrived. I have also reported this to Verizon. f
Call from sounded like David, said had won one of 4 prizes maybe new car even tho I was on the do not call list I had entered to win car with my phone number on entry form Said would not atteempt to call back please call them immediately. I did not. Call from Mitchells Communication Grp.
I have received three or four calls today from this number. No messages were left for any of them.
SOME FAST TALKING GUY SAID I HAD WON ONE OF FOUR PRIZES. I THOUGHT COOL. LOL. THEN I WENT TO "WHO CALLED" CENTER AND READ COMMENTS. PEOPLE HAVE MARBLES IN THEIR MOUTHS. IT COULD BE A CALL CENTER FOR HIGH SCHOOL DROP OUTS WHO EARN MINIMUM WAGE AT MITCHELLS COMMUNITY. PERHAPS IT A CULT. WHO KNOWS. BEWARE A SCAM STINKS AND ABOVE NUMBER PART OF IT. WONDER WHAT YOU GET AT MOTEL. A 90 MINUTE TIME SHARE PRESENTATION PERHAPS. COUNT ON IT. AND YOU WIN TWO NIGHTS AT MOTEL 6 OR THE LIKE.
Dave or David of Mitchell Communications at ext 243. I won a prize... "time sensitive call", "not a cold call", "trying to reach you (no name given) for days". Probably has been calling but didn't leave any messages.
I received text messages from this number asking how I was doing. The screenname was mary4love31. When I inquired as to the identity of the person, he said his name was Terry Jack. This is the same person who is trying to scam me through Craig's List using the Western Union scam.
For those unfamiliar with this scam, they feign interest in a product you're trying to sell and send you a fake check in an excess amount. Some of that amount is usually extra money for you for "running around" or for "your troubles" and the rest they ask you to Western Union to a "shipper" who will use the money to ship the item.
Later, the bank discovers that it's a fake check and you are responsible for reimbursing them.
Basically, you've just lost the money you thought you made plus the extra and the con artist gets away with free money.
I am getting harassed by this person and they live close to me or else they wouldn't have known my boyfriend and I were arguing the other morning. I have tried having my daughter google the number and I will track her down.
rec'd several messages re I won a car, yes in the past i have filled out a form somewhere can not recall where/when. called and spoke with a girl who said the entry was for a mini cooper - that confirmed it was not something i filled out - hate those... I asked to see a copy of the entry the claim i filled out then said maybe someone filled it out for me.
then she said there were other prizes and i would need to come down see what i won. turns out its a travel agency in methuen named fantasia.
i was put on hold and told a manager would call me back...
Asked to speak to Michael. Told them no Michael here. I could hear activity in the back ground. Sounds like a call center.
Got a call from Patrick at 708-248-6929 with same scam - won one of top 4 prizes - something about a new car - you entered - not a telemarketing call - etc. Checked here first then reported to Federal Trade Commission at link below. It takes a lot of reports before anything is done. The process is brief and simple.
THIS PERSON IS NOW TRYING TO SAY THAT HE IS LOOKING FOR A ADMINSTRATIVE ASSISTANT. HE OR SHE HAS POSTED AN AD ON CRAIG'S LIST. I REPLIED WITH ALL THE OTHERS I NEED AND HE/SHE TEXTED ME TODAY STATING THAT HE/SHE WILL CALL. HAVENT RECEIVED IT YET????? SO SOMETHING TOLD ME TO COME AND LOOK UP THE NUMBER ON THE NET. I FOUND OUT THIS INFORMATION
come meet me
Just comes up saying 8668391652. No message ever left and they call all the time around 8:15-8:45.
Been going on for about 2 weeks now. Wish they would stop calling or at least leave a message.
this number kept sending things to my husband 4 money orders wantin him to cash them and send them back so he he went to the police said 4 him to play along and not to tell but mean while this person is still sending things and no one can stop this person its a bunch of bull and it almost cost a realationship and split a family up they txtin i love u and things like that someone stop them please no one deserves this and the dramma they show that it is near where i live well the police wont move in then ill find the person and take them in myself!!
Several calls from this # week of 18 April til today. No ID, did not leave a voice message. My number is on do not call list, I just don't answer 800 phone calls -- they are all scams as far as I can tell
Call from Tony, company name mumbled, Ext 109. Said I had won one of four prizes, one of which is a new car, because I had filled out a prize entry 12-18 months ago. Said it would be the last time he notified me and it was not a telemarketer or cold call. I'm on the do not call register.
I received this same phone call today. This is ridiculous.
Got a call from Tony with the same msg. Glad I checked this on google. I won't be calling back
WTF IS UP
second message received in 1 week. have not called back. got the call from Tony- Prize Fulfillment Center- to call back 877-279-3457 (x109), this was not a "cold call" commented that he knew I was listed on the Do Not Call List- I had entered a contest, my name was chosen and winner of one out of 4 prizes.
Really?? There are two people that live here, which one is the winner? Why didn't I receive something in the mail that i need to sign if i am truly a winner. Sounds like a Scam to me. (Got a similiar call like this 2 months back, never called - now it seems they are at it again!)
The message said I had won a car. He also said it was not a time share.
I returned the call and they said I had filled out some form within the last 18 months ( I don't rememebner doing so). They said I had won one of 3 prizes: a for dexplorer, a vacion or a 27" TV. I had to go to some meeting the following night. I told them I couldn't, so they wanted to know if I knew another couple who could.
Yet another SCAM. Tony wanted me to drive to Ormond Beach to "claim my car"... Not. I told them 'don't call me again' and gave all the info to my friend who works for the FBI... Although there's alot of people who are greedy and ate up with stupid, I'm not one of them. Don't fall for this one!
Tony Called my home a number of times and when I return call there is only an answering machine
Just got a call from this number as well. ID states "Mitchells Commu"? I answered and the guy said he dialed the wrong number? That is a hell of a wrong number to have misdialed as I live in Tennessee and 708 is around the Chicagoland area!
I found the message left on my answering machine too. Call from Tony saying I won 877 279 3457 ext 109...Glad to be able to look this stuff up on the internet! SCAM
On the one or two legit things I have won, you just recieve them. You never have to call and beg for it!
Left message, stated that I apparently had signed up to win a vehicle in the last 12-18 mos.
Call them back and ask if anyone ordered a pizza! Come on guys and girls, have a little fun. I was put on hold and the person came back on and said, no, no one here ordered a pizza! Time to inflict a little payback, wouldn't you say?
Same as the rest of the stories. Call originated from 708-833-8718. I used the link provided by Tami (below), to register a complaint.
A recording, same as alla the others from Tony (a man.) Obviously a B.S. call!
Dont Call Tony Back ! Its just a scam.
Hey Tony (Toni), or whomever called they are one very busy person. I too am on the D N C list. Wow, that works well!
Have been from the start. Have never called these idiots so why do they still call?
Same exact canned message that everyone else is seeing from Tony. Says been trying to reach us, won a car, said it was not a telemarketing call. No answer at extenesion 109. Caller ID was Group Mitchell. Don't bother with this call. Thanks for other responses and saving me the aggravation.
Same exact story as most of the posts here. I didn't bother calling back but searched this site. Tony IS a busy guy! Or girl depending on what gender you reach (Toni) apparently--must be a canned recording as the story is exactly the same as indicated in other posts and the phone number to call back is 877-279-3457, ext. 109. Shows up on my caller ID as (708) 856-0109. I am most grateful for this site!
3/5/2010 they are still at it......thanks to these postings I didn't call back. Will follow Tami's suggestion and report the call.
Tony is a very busy guy, indeed.
Future readers to this post should file a complaint (as I did).
Click here: www.donotcall.gov
got the same msg from tony today 877-279-3457 x109
received message on answering machine from Tony, at 877-279-3457, said I had entered a contest (I have not) and won a car, and this would be the final attempt to contact me. (I hope that is true).... I am off to register a complaint with National Do Not Call Registry.
Tony has been calling leaving his message for several months and I have not returned his calls. Tonight he left a message that this would be his last attempt to try to contact me about my prize. Mitchells Commu showed up on my TV and telephone id. I decided to take the time to look it up to be sure I wasn't really going to miss out on anything for real. Thanks for warnings. I won't waste anymore of time with this.
Got a call from a guy named Tony. Said not a telemarketer or timeshare. Been trying to get ahold of us. Said to call them back at 877-833-8406, but the call came in as 708-833-8406 which is a home phone number in Chicago IL. Left a message and no one called back. Just called again and got a human by the name of "John Berry". Said we had filled out something during a sporting event and had definately won either a 2010 Lincoln Navigator or $45K, 2 nights at Marriott, 3 nights in somewhere else, or a 32'flat screen, but we had definately won. Gave me a claim number and said that I had to go to 100 E. Granada Blvd, Ormond Beach, Fl to claim my prize, but my husband must be with me and it would take appx 90 minutes. Then he ask if we had 2 forms of ID and a credit card. He then started telling me dates that I could go. Wanted to know if I had a fax or an email so he could send me a confirmation letter. When I told him I couldn't go this week, he said to call him back on next Monday and he would try to schedule something then. Needless to say, this is a total scam! Don't call these people back and you are right, you have a hard time understanding the ebonics that they use! They all need to go back to school to learn to speak english! DO NO GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION! Take your camper to Daytona and stay at one of the campgrounds. They don't hound you afterwards!!
This person or whoever it is started texting my girlfriend and told her they were me. They then asked her for pictures.... she sent them and the idiot accidentally sent it from his email address. I looked him up on myspace and I saw a picture of me. His username was A.J. Fata and he even had some of my friends added on his profile! I just want to find out who this is so i can beat the crap out of him. My girlfriend is 16 and i am 15. This person was trying to get my girlfriend to talk dirty and vulgar things to him. Whoever this is is a sex offender and a pedifile. He asked my girlfriend for nude pics. That's child pornography. his email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please if you find anything about please contact my Email at email@example.com.
were did messag ariganat from
Today I received a message from Tony at the Prize Fullfillment Center. Was told to call back at 877-279-3457, ext 109. Same story as the others: I was selected as a winner from a drawing I entered within the last 12-18 months. I know I had not entered any such contests, and so I checked here before calling the number back. Glad I did check, and glad you people are here to help counter these scams.
Received a call from Toni at the Prize or Process Service Center calling about someone entering me in a contest in the past 4 to 18 months. I was eligible to win one of the top 4 major prizes. The caller ID showed a phone number of 708-248-6929 but the canned message said to call this 877 number and go to ext 109. Toni went on to say that she wasn't a telemarketer or a Time Share something or other. Past research done on previous calls from the same Toni would lead me to form the opinion that this is a scam. My phone number is on the do-not-call list. This was a canned recording with no way given to actually talk to a live person during that call. I have not done business with this company but if I call their 877 number might that interpreted by the FTC as having done business with them since I initiated the call to them. If that is the case then the do-not-call list restrictions no longer apply. What a perfect way to get around the do-not-call list restrictions and sell their product.
Got same message as everyone else here from 877-279-3457 ext. 125. The girls name was Shantel. I won 1 OF 4 prizes and she knows about the DNC list and would not be calling me if it was a sales call and she is from the Prize Fullfillment Center and blah, blah. You can barely understand her. Bunch of Scam Artists.
It said plz fuck me and make me cum
Has anyone had a charge on their phone bill for calling the 877 number back?
Got the same call today. Exactly as all the good folks below have stated. Its definitely a scam. You can't understand any of the messages or the recording you get when you dial the number back. They all sound like they have marbles in their mouths and talk with ebonics (they're obviously all Black and no that is not a racist comment). The one caller ID showed them in Illinois. They better be ready for what I am going to deliver to the doorstep of the address in Ormand Beach cuz its gonna make national news!
DENNIS IS A COMPLETE IDIOT!
I don't know who this is but they know way too much about me and my wife. They are a coward and need to lay off before they mess with the wrong person and get totally screwed for messing with peoples lived. Come forth or shut up.
Tony is real busy!!! This is a scam. I received the same call a few months earlier. You will not and have not won anything. To good to be true....run don't give up personal info. If you won tell them to mail it to you for free.
Received the "you won the prize call". Wanted me to be in Ormond Beach tomorrow, said I could not make it. They gave me the 877 279 3457 number with an extension of 116. Also told me I would have to go to 100 E. Grenada Blvd. Ormond Beach Fl to claim the prize. This address is for The Vacation Station and All in one Vacations, which offers vacation membership packages for several hotels in Daytona Beach. Their website is www.allinonevacations.com
If these are legitimate hotels in Datona Beach - Best Western Castillo Del Sol Hotel and Coral Beach Resort, I wonder if they know and endorse this type of promotion? I go to Daytona Beach quite often, know where I will not stay!!
Called at 8:44 pm stating that I entered a drawing for a car approx. 12-18 months ago, I had won one of 4 major prizes and to call back toll free 877-279-3457 ext. 131. I have filed a complaint with the National Do Not Call Registry.
Got call from this number, was a woman. Said contact wasn't here, she left message saying to call back and ask for extension 114. When I called back, it was a recording of a man names 'Sam' that said to leave number and he will call back.
I noticed when I got the operator that the name of the company was rushed and mumbled and I asked 3 times for her to repeat the name before I could understand it. I am on the do not call list too and have been for years!
The fact that a woman was the actual caller but man was answering the voice mail doesn't make sense either.
Thanks to all of you for leaving your comments! Much appreciated!!!
Got call from Tony and said approximately the same as the other ppl reported earlier here. I am not returning their call. Thanks for the heads up on this scam.
got the call from Tony- Prize Fulfillment Center- told me to call back 877-279-3457 (x109), although I was listed on the Do Not Call List- that this was not a "cold call"- that I had entered a contest to win a car. He said that my name was chosen, I'm a winner of one the top
four prizes. I tried to call back- spoke with Terrell, said Tony was his supervisor- I hung up the phone. Damn Shame these scammers are allowed to use some kind of "false" contest entry. This is not a valid phone call. It's a scam. I will keep a eye on my next phone bill.
same exact call received this week. it sounded like a scam. how can their be charges on your phone bill from them calling you?
Whew-thanks to all who reported this scam!! I will be sure to check my phone bill for random charges and I'll report this to the do not call list!
Person Identified as Tony froma Prize center called from 708-833-8478. Left a message to call back the 877 number and hit Ext 109. Said I entered my phone number in the last 12-18 months in a contest and won. I won a new car. Said he wasnt a telemarketer. Caller ID said Mithcells Comm
Got a call from "Darlene" leaving a voice mail saying I won some car, she does not say she is representing any company but a "prize fulfillment center". A google search showed that this is some kind of scam, also suggested was to check your phone bill to make sure you dont get random charges for this scam.
Received a couple of calls on my cellphone from these clowns, but I didn't answer. No messages left either. Only my family has my cellphone number, so I don't know how they got it. And my number is on the Do Not Call list.
Call from Tony. He said we won either a Ford Explorer, a cruise vacation or a flat screen TV. Turns out to be a vacation club scam. Don't bother...
I have been getting textes for this number and they all most cause me to loss my girlfriend! If I can get the person i will do something to him!
This number doesn't belong to anybody specific per se....this is the the number generated by Yahoo when someone is sending a txt to your phone via Yahoo Messenger.
I'm not exactly where the chronology is derived from, but I'm guessing the ******01 is prob the first contact on your friends list, *****02 the second contact, etc.
You can either disable Mobile txt all together in the Privacy or Mobile setting in Yahoo Messenger, or just remove your mobile number...there may even be a method where you can say to only allow friends to be able to Send to your mobile via their Yahoo Messenger.
Just to reiterate, that number is not any one person specifically....I have this featured enabled with my Yahoo, so peeps can txt my phone from their Yahoo...and I have them saved in my phone with their contact info, and for the most part its like 92466501, 92466502, etc.
I have been getting text messages from this number for about 3 weeks now. This person seems to know an awful lot about me including my boyfriends name and they wanted me to meet them at a bar thats here by my house they said that they were my old boyfriend Chris how do they know all this stuff about me, its really stressing me out. I went with a friend to this bar and there was no one that I new in there, I never even go there and thern the next day they text me and said someone told them that I came in with a girl that there car broke down and they couldnt make it. I have told this story to a few people and all the fingers point to my boyfriend none of it makes sence because the first text I got we were both sitting here watching tv it came in at 11:30 at night and funny thing I was just trying to figure it all out when I came across this site with the number and it says according to 1 report the caller is billyeaston48, so I put in firstname.lastname@example.org and sure enough it came up and there location is Fulton, NY, how can I know for sure because I cant be with a boyfriend thats going to do something like that, he says its not him but I just dont know.Can someone please help me figure this out?

I have been getting text messages from this number, they started about 2 weeks ago. I have text the number back and they have text me back a few times but the weird thing is that they know an awful lot about me. The first message I ever received was at 11:30 at night while my boyfriend and I were sitting here watching tv and it said I know your with Rick but I want to be with you, then they told me to meet them at a bar down the road from my house thats when they told me they were an old boyfriend of mine named Chris, how do they know all this stuff? I called Chris and it was not him. I have told the story to a few people and they all say its my boyfriend testing me but when I looked it up tonight I found all these comments regarding the number I have saved on my phone. I just would really like to know for sure who it is because if its my boyfriend I cant stay with someone like that, thats crazy stuff to do to someone. I asked him about it and every time he tells me its not him, can someone help me out with this please !! If you can give me any answers on how to find this information out please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you

92466501 is a return ID provided by Yahoo Messenger to its SMS and VoIP users. If you have received a user ID from the caller or included in an SMS message then you have the option to report the abuse of these services to Yahoo.
If you have a Yahoo account the process of reporting abuse is quite simple. It can be done with Yahoo Messenger via the "Help" menu, simply click on the cleverly labelled option: report abuse. A report can also be done directly from the Yahoo website, with or without an account.
Copy the above link for the Yahoo help page. In the right column under the heading "Helpful Links" simply click on "Report Abuse" and fill out the form.
Both of the above options will require the Yahoo ID from which the message was sent to be most effective, however reporting the 92466501 code will help the Yahoo staff recognize that the issue did in fact originate with their service. I hope this will help anyone having issue with calls or text from this number. The final bet is to notify your service provider and request a block placed on all calls or text from this number. For those of you with a Yahoo account I would suggest the following procedures as well.
1. Remove any personal contact information from the account.
2. Change your account Passcode.
It is possible your contact information was accessed, without your knowledge, and used to make these annoying calls. Again, I hope this information is useful. For any other assistance you may feel free to contact me via e-mail at the following address(s).
T514he date matches a call made and charged to my mobile phone using a pay per use rogers wireless numberWhat it this piggy backing going on. It's wosre than H1N1...a postal code leading to Montreal, Quebec where the calls seem to route through???? 514 area code

Someone named Shawn calls everyday and says for me to call about a personal business matter that is time sensitive that has been placed at his office. Had this same type of thing happen with my cell number, was trying to collect on something not even mine. These scum bags are trying to collect on old uncollectable debts and they dont even have the correct info.
Card services. I just got a new phone line and they were calling me 3-4 times a day, seconds after the phone was activated. I've requested to be removed twice and so far they have yet to so.
I rec'd a call from a Mrs. Jones at this #...it was Imagine Credit Card.
They call constantly. Sometimes several times a day. I suspect their phone number changes often, but it always says Toll Free Servi. May be a bill collector.
these people are scum..
I received a phone call at work. When I answered, they hung up. So I *69 and this is the number given.
I was called from this number. It's from the Imagine credit card service office. I have a card with them. If you don't have an account, I'm guessing it's a marketing call.
Card Services. Did not leave a message. Called them and they could not find why they called. Asked if I had a Imagine Card, I dont, Or give them my full SS# so they can look up. Yeah RIGHT!
