(213) 271-1644

2 weeks 1 day ago Annoyed In Mass MA

Found this on my Caller ID. Called at 6:14 AM. No message.

February 13th, 2014 S ND

I missed a call from 213-271-1644 on 2/10/2014 at 9:24 am, so I called back at 10:07 am, and the number was "disconnected, or no longer in service." Who was it and what did they want?

February 13th, 2014 jj WV

Foreign accent, claim to be WIndows support, that my computer is infected with malware. Tried to get me to download aammyy PC remote code execution, forget it, obviously someone trying to take over PC and steal information

February 5th, 2014 Lindsay WA

Received a call from a gentleman with an Indian accent saying the call was about a recent inquiry regarding weight loss - This was false and I asked he remove my work number from their database. He's called at least 5 other times in the past week.

January 20th, 2014 Jim WA

Guy with an Indian accent said he was calling as a support person for Windows machines, though he didn't work for Microsoft. He named the company, but connection was 90% intermittent (had the word "Tech" in it). Said they (his company) were getting adware alerts, that it had infected all the Windows machines on our home network, and that he would guide me through the removal process. I told him to just give me the name of the virus, since the connection was so awful, so I could investigate on my own. But he pushed back on that. I asked him what product would get rid of it. If he's selling something, I figured this would draw him out. He said he wanted to talk to my wife, but wasn't able to provide any specifics about the error, the name of the infected machine, or any such specifics. The connection was so awful I couldn't make out anything. Had to hang up.
I checked our event logs after I hung up and found nothing. Both of our machines are protected and despite a full scan found nothing.
I suspect the real error would be following the guy's directions.

Caller ID showed number and Anonymous, they hung up after I answered with our full business name. I called back immediately and received receptionist at InfoUSA. After speaking with ehr, I assume they were collecting miscellaneous business marketing data to sell.

Just got a call from (Cypress - Los a) at 213-271-1644
I say hello
Sounds like someone riding in a car with a window down.
Then finally I hear a Indian voice.
"hello sir"
"I'm calling because we're receiving signals that your computer is downloading malicious software into your C drive"
At this point I'm laughing so hard I can barley stand.
Then he says "F*** you!"
Then he hangs up.

Did this site get yet another illiterate spam from ''JunkCall''? He's been pushing that sorry ''1800JunkCall'' website for weeks, while siphoning all its user content from 800Notes.

Nothing about JunkCall's little slapped-together project will ''put a stop'' to anything. Two of the four categories cited in his spam are besides exempt from DNC list scrubbing, therefore harder to control.

repeated calls daily to cell phone from this number with spambot robocall about internet business listings scam

i have informed them numerous times that I am on the DO NOT CALL list and asked them to stop calling me to no avail.

August 21st, 2010 rob OH

calls repeatedly asking for an "update" to their database, when I ask what this is for they say that it is for online search engines, I tell them we are on the DO NOT CALL list and to take us off their calling list, to which they reply that it is an outbound call center and they can not do that.

August 4th, 2010 John T IL

Caller is indeed INFOUSA.com ...as others have mentioned below. If you are a legitimate small, brick and mortar business owner...you DON'T want to IGNORE this caller...assuming you want customers to be able to find you in the various major business directories and yellowpages...especially if you are a new business. They are a database management/supplier company (probably the largest) and all they're doing is verifying (once a year) that your business contact info is current and correct. Need more info?...look here: www.infousa.com . . . This is NOT a sales/scam call of any sort. A word to the wise: do a little homework on Google before blowing off a caller as a telemarketer/scammer. Ignoring this one could hurt your business immeasurably. Just call back, speak to a real person and they will explain what I just have. Takes 60 seconds.

After reading other comments, I checked my messages and this was a real call from my dentist to remind me of an appointment. I wish it didn't say phone tree, I would have picked up.

August 25th, 2009 Rick CA

I love when I get these calls. The guy asks for me, and I say "who's calling." I repeated myself and he said, "Kevin Scott." NOT. Made up name. I asked him from what company. He says "Is this Rick L....?" I said again, "from what company." He says "I've already answered two questions." I said, "No, only one," and hung up on him. Usually I'm not that nice and drop F-bombs on these guys. Don't EVER admit who you are until these people tell you from what company they are calling. Technically, I don't think they can say their pitch unless they get confirmation that you are you. Drop some sh*t on them. It will make you feel better.

Some company called InfoUSA. When I made the mistake of answering, they wanted to confirm my address, city, state, etc. When I asked them what they were calling about, they continued that they wanted to confirm my information. I asked why. They just kept on trying to get me to confirm. I believe they are collecting information to sell to other scum bag telemarketers. STAY AWAY FROM THEM! You'll be happoer.

But I think that I will just report it to my States Attorney Generals Office, and let them deal with it.

I've been wanting something like that for years. Anyone who knows
where to get such a device, please post the information here.
Alternately I'd like a device that can be programmed with phone
numbers I already know about, and anyone else who knows a secret
code, to ring, but all other calls coming in do *not* ring but
instead pick up the call silently and play an outgoing message
telling how they can contact me over the InterNet to negotiate
permission to get white-listed to call my phone. Anybody know
anything that will ring my phone *only* for people whom I've
specially permitted somehow?

For this specific church-telemarketer, I have an additional idea:
Find out where these churches are that are being telemarketed,
and go there and totally disrupt the service, denouncing the
people in charge of the church who used donations not for
legitimate religious purposes but to hire telemarketers to harass
thousands of people in their homes in an effort to get a few of
them to come join the church and donate more money to hire more
telemarketers to harass more people to get more money round and
round like a chainletter scam. Greed like that is surely a sin,
if there is any such thing as sin.

They called me twice this week I missed the first one.

They just wanted to make sure I received my copy of the Book of Mormons. They are nice

I joined recently and then I changed my mind. This is only my opinion but they are more like a club to me not true to JESUS CHRIST and know one knows who was Joseph Smith before his alleged first vision with angles or was it God and his son or was it just Jesus
It says in the bible Marriage is 1 man, 1 woman Fundamentalist LDS Church.

They celebrate Joseph Smith.

March 29th, 2008 R CA

They've been calling for weeks now, almost every day! I never ordered a thing from them. At first I thought it was a collection agency up to their usual tricks. I called the number back today and it did say it was the Mormon's. I don't know what's going on ... it all seems fishy to me.

Three calls today. The first two were hangups. The third was a recording about church events. About four months ago I got these same calls 8 to 10 times a week for a few weeks, then it stopped. I guess it's starting again.

When a solicitor calls, be happy. YOu have to get a name and phone number in order to report them to FTC at their website...donotcall.gov. The catch is you have to have BOTH name of business and their phone number. Sometimes solicitors trick you by not givin a real phone number on caller ID or they hope you won't report them. You have to report to FTC. I believe if they have enough complaints, FTC will forward all the complaints to the appropriate agency for criminal and/or civil prosecution. But you do have to report the violation.

mormons. it is so disrespectful to try and push your religion on someone else. My family has been killed and oppressed for centuries to try and maintain their religious identity, which comes with years of culture and tradition which I grew up with and have so many precious memories of. Why would I ever give this up for some stranger who stole my unlisted number from somewhere and harasses my by calling at inappropriate times. I respect your beliefs, please respect mine.

February 2nd, 2008 WDM Canada

Call and hang up with no answer. Today was the first call from this number but there have been other LDS numbers that have called on and off over the last year or so. Never really persistent but it would be nice if they left a message when they get the answering machine. Of course the are probably using automated dialers like most outbound centres so when the machine "detects" a non-human response it just hangs up.

I just bought a new phone and phone number,and this annoyance came with it. At least twice a week Sunday and a week day I have received a call from this number. A recording telling me about Church events. I call the number and it says "This number is not in service or has been disconnected". Is there no relief from this annoyance. I get these call at different times of day and night.

Called my home number and wanted to update a business listing for a business that they said is listed in my name. It wasn't the correct business name, and I noticed that I've received junk mail addressed to that name. When I asked where she was calling from, she said INFO USA. When I asked what they do, she said they provide information services to thousands of businesses, made it sound like a D&B. Asked her to take the number off the list, and she said I would have to go to www.infousa.com to do that. This is a company that sells your contact info! I won't answer next time.

We got a new phone line installed at work that I use to test my modems on.

I just finished polling a cash register and the phone started ringing. I picked up the phone, just to hear a ringing tone. Moments later, a female voice came on the line saying "hello". I just hung up the phone rather than get into a debate as to why we were connected.

Since my line doesn't have call display, I used Bell's *69 feature, and it told me what my last call number was (I never make outgoing calls on this line so I knew this had to be the number that dialed in.)

Annoying, just like most technological innovations. Too bad it wasn't "Happy Dude" calling... I'd send $1 to Homer Simpson just for a laugh.

This is InfoUSA calling everyone - I haven't ever answered them because I believe they will then sell your number. They're a 'sales lead' company. They've left me over 5 voicemails in the past week, most were just static and some were background noise. It's important that people register for the 'do not call registery', it's donotcall.gov ; once you've registered, you have to wait 31 days I believe, but then you can report them every time they call you!! I've filed multiple complaints on them this week!

Said they were INFO USA. The woman said they were a company that compiles information for search engines. She started to ask questions about my business. I didn't answer them because I thought they were unneccesary. She wanted to know who I was. What the business address was. What phone numbers we use. How many people worked at my businesses. I told it was irrelevant who I was and I don't see why she needed to know how many people worked at the business. I said I would be happy to give her information if she could fax it over to me because I do not divulge such information over the phone. No one has faxed me anything and I am glad I didn't give out any information.
