The phone is ringing, and I don't recognize the number, All Caller ID says is, "NAME UNAVAILABLE".
Please help me figure out who is calling and what they want
CHURCH | (church?) |
church calls from 9 phone numbers:
Found this on my Caller ID. Called at 6:14 AM. No message.
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?
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
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.
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.
SOMEONE WTH A FAKE ACCENT ASKED FOR DOROTHY BELL AND I TOLD THEM SHE WAS NOT HERE. I ASKED WHO WAS CALLING AND THEY SAID SOMETHNG ABOUT A MEDICAL FACILITY AND TO USE THE NMBR THAT SHOWS UPON THE CALLER I.D.TO RETURN THIS CALL. BELL IS A FAMILY NAME AND AS I TRUED TO EXPLAIN THERE IS NO DOROTHY AT THIS NMBR THEY HUNG UP ON ME, WHAT THE WHAT?
said it was Microsoft. yeah right
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.
"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.
CALLED AND GOT MY VOICEMAIL AND LEFT NO MESSAGE. WASTE OF MY TIME AND MY MINUTES.

This is a data compiler seeking to verify address and phone number information for resale. They called us on a Saturday, WTF!
who watched the Oscars?
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.
Did you get telephone calls from somebody that you don't known?
Debt collectors, telemarketers, insurance companies or telephone surveys, put a STOP and report it in www.1800junkcall.com
Some kind of automated message asking you to update your info on their website. HA! I will *NOT* go to their website or even mention it here. I am heading to the donotcall.gov site to report them!! Caller ID Says INFO USA.
Those idiots called me today. Would not tell me anything about the company. Hung up on caller.
just a brief sound of music then hung up
Called office - I don'e EVER verify ANYthing over the phone. They can look us up just like everyone else. Jerks.

5711 S 86th Circle, Omaha, NE 68127
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.
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.
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.
He said he was calling to update information on ain individual Solita Bernise.
Also bugged by these spam generators. We are in London, Ontario.
Add North Dakota to the list of this irritating caller
Add New Mexico they probably call the entire world. After answering the phone I heard someone for a split secound then I hung up on them. These people that call and hang up I like giving them a taste of their own medicine.
Beware! of people cold calling you that do not have company name in caller id. absolutely never give out any personal information.
Info USA they are a real PITA. Send them to voicemail or place them on hold and forget about them.
Honestly, I think they are bill collectors posing as Mormons, because why won't they leave a message! I just saying.....
Okay but why they hell would these people be calling my house?
after identifying myself I heard what sounded like a boileroom operation with dozens of people speaking. After about 2 seconds the caller hung up.
Called my cell phone, did not answer and no message was left. Called the number after checking this website and got a recorded message with name. Went to their website and sent emailed request to be removed from their call list and received a reply that my number couldn't be found in their system.
Received call answered and was greeted with a ringing phone line. Hung up checked this wedsite and then blocked number. Within 5 minutes they called again this time the call was blocked by my system.
Once again some useless knuckleheads from Info USA bothering us with these calls. When they call, they never speak - no hello - no nothing! What a bunch of Talibans losers!
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. I will let the dentist know what caller id showed and advise that the old system had his name. I wouldn't have checked for messages if it weren't for people's comments here.
Called my home office today. I did not answer. They did not leave voice mail.
8/3/09 - Ann said wanted me to "renew" our "free" online info service - Told her we were not interested in any such service and that our company had been Scammed in the past with other companies just like these and we were just not interested - Not a very friendly person -Said OK quickly and then she hung up the phone
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.
I have received calls from them. The caller ID string is "BYU". I added them to my spam number list.
My test for spammers: If they really want to contact me they should leave a message on the answering machine. They don't.
called yesterday and today. My Thanks to this site for saving me money!
have been getting call every day.
I found this information on the internet...InfoGROUP was founded in 1972 by Vinod *Gupta, Chairman and CEO. The headquarters are located in Omaha, NE, USA. The company employs over 5,000 people in 88 offices worldwide.
Removed as InfoGROUP chairman
In late July 2008, in response to a Securities and Exchange Commission investigation and shareholder lawsuit *Gupta was ordered to resign as chairman, will pay $9 million personally to settle shareholders lawsuit, will halt use of company funds for travel and entertainment and will sell the company yacht, amongst other changes

Church of scientology will not stop calling!!! aaarggggghghhhhhhh
I am going to look into that BlockTelemarketers.net for our business line, thankyou! Because, remember true business numbers are not honored being enrolled in Do Not Call Registry, or cell phones, unless that has changed recently.
Thanks all... we need you!
Minister Steve Doyle advertising tickets to "Runaway Prophet" at Evangel Cathedral. While the church may be non-profit, I don't think Robo-Calls to my home number advertising tickets to a play meets the exemptions to the National Do-Not-Call List. They need to check the National Do-Not-Call roster before making these prerecorded calls. A complaint has been filed!
Bell Canada is fooling their customer. They call many times a day and hang up when you answer the phone. Thei are real idiots.
Data miners, huh? They called me, I let it ring, they didn't leave a message. Thanks to all who have come before to let me know what they're up to.
They didn't leave a message.
Called them and was given this number to call, if you want them to remove you from their calling list: 888-633-4402.
Did not answer, they left no message.
Rang on line, person picked up, Info USA, said they needed to verify our address...told her to put on do not call list, she said that she needed permission to do so which I quickly shot down and informed her that she was speaking to a law office. Caller huffed and hung up.
TRYING TO VERY INFORMATION
on prétendu être info canada et être du même genre que page jaunes ou zip local sur le net
M'ont demandé numéro et adresse
ils ont prétendu s'appeler info canada et être du même genre que pagejaune ou zip local.
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.
Call periodically. I never answer and they never leave a message.
They are calling my private/unlisted home fax number, which is also listed on the DNC Registry... ARG... so much for wanting your privacy from these (cough-cough).
Scumbag Telemarketers!!! stay clear of this company they are to ashamed to show who they are on caller id. if it acts like a preditor trust me its a preditor!!!
info usa, I didn't pick up & no message left
kEEPS CALLING AND ANSKING PERSONAL BUSINESS INFO ON ADDRESS, OWNERS NAME ETC. DID NOT GIVE ANY INFO
I really appreciate this site and the info.; so glad it is the church and not another bill collector. I ordered a dvd at Christmas, too.
Caller ID shows out of area 402-930-3659 no-one there upon answering
South Dakota here...they called but left no message. I am so thankful for this website - it's a great resource.
got a call from this number. missed the call. didn't leave a voicemail.
Mormons keep pestering me. I just wanted a free Book of Mormon and now they act like they're telemarketers. I guess there really is no such thing as a free lunch.
I receive calls from this number 6-7 times a day. I have not purchased anything and they have been calling my home for over 2 months now on a daily bases. I am truly sick and tired of it. And I wish that the would respect you if you answer and not say anything that should be a clue to someone. But I think that I will just report it to my States Attorney Generals Office, and let them deal with it.
I TOO HAVE RECEIVED CALL FROM THIS NUMBER. IT IS PROBABLY THE MORMAN CHURCH . THEY ARE TRYING TO SPREAD THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST. IT WOULD BE OF BENEFIT TO LISTEN TO WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY, I DID.
These guys are real fucks.
Not only do they keep calling, but they don't reveal there location.
Find them and kill them!
Called this morning, wanting to know all this information. If they want it, they can pay for it... :-)
I really need to get the Asterisk AGI for whocalled.us set up...
Answered the phone called it rang two times then I heard a lady asked how she can reach "my business name" but the weird thing is she called it by the DBA that I am about to register tomorrow my company names is just a little different. I just hung up when she knew that she must of obviously saw it on our website as it is the only place where that is.
Operator called asking for owner to confirm on-line listing. When we informed them we did not want to be included, they said we had to or send in writing the request to be removed. When we asked for the details they hung up.
I got 2 calls from them because I requested a DVD from them. I spoke to them the second time, and I hope that they don't call me again.

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.

this company calls every couple of days. this is getting riduclous. they advise on the machine they will only remove your number if you provide a letter on business stationary. it also says it will transfer you to an operator but just routes you back to the same automated messaged over and over again....i even already registered with the national do not call registry and it dosen't help...
i didn't answer because it was long distance and the display read "Info USA" ... i noticed when the answering machine kicked in, they were trying to bypass it as if they could reach an operator by hitting the right combination of buttons. Then they hung up without leaving a message.
Received call from 402-930-3659 on my cell phone, 10:30 am Arizona time, Thursday June 26. Did not answer the call, as it said "no name". No message was left.
Received a call from 402-930-3659 on my cell phone, here in Arizona, about 10:00 am. I didn't answer. No message was left.
I should have mentioned this was in Arizona. Add Arizona to the map!
Just received a call on my cell phone from 402-930-3659. I did not answer the call, and no message was left. 11:30 am.
got calls all week no message.people should start a class action suit for harrassment and cell phone charges...!
Said he wanted the email and mailing address of my business for search engine purposes.
Wanted to update owner info. I told them the owners name is TuEres UnCulero. (Spanish for "You are an a-hole.")
No one speaks. Caller must be mute.
Dis guy called preaching crazy things I am upset at it.
Scary pre recorded call at dinner time asking for money.
Pre-Recorded message about 3 minutes long could not hang up the phone without it ringing back preaching very hateful message.
Scary call preaching hate and church asking for money, reported to FCC.
Spoke about islam and then about killing U.S. Soldiers in Iraq to liberate islam very scary.
Reported to FCC Right Away.
Church preaching about Islam and overthrowing the U.S. Government very disturbing.
Got a call on my Business line and when I said Hello, it rang as if i called someone. A lady started off asking me questions about my address and business without identifying who she was or worked for.
I HAVE GOTTEN AT LEAST 3 CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER. THE FIRST 2 TIMES I PICKED UP BUT THEN THEY HUNG UP. I GOT TO THE PHONE THIS LAST TIME AND A MAN ASKED FOR A JOSEPH SOMETHING???
When they call just say Pizza Hut How may I take ur order..lol..
this number called us asking to verify info, was abrupt on the phone when the info was not given
Despite being on the Do Not Call list I got so fed up with all these unwanted calls (including from 402-930-3659) I found this neat little unit that can be programmed to either block or send unwanted calls to your answering machine without your phone ever ringing! You can add as many numbers as you want and even program it to have ALL 800, 888, 877, & 866 numbers dumped straight into the answering machine. I
answered and then heard phone ringing as if calling another number automatically
appel rentrant avec sonnerie qui se fait entendre et une femme me r
just my 2 cents
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.
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.
me here answered and then heard phone ringing as if calling another number automatically
these companies should get some sort of fines for wasting our time!!!!!!!!! and using my fax paper once they find out my fax #.
Someone told me they are looking for money to buy atomic bombs,guns and start another war with USA-- that the info I Have.
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.
unknown caller on my cellphone please stop calling
Calls daily to my Memphis business phone.
I don't answer.
They keep calling and even when I answer they just hang up. You'd think that if they wanted me to convert they'd at least try and talk to me...
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.
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.
Acted very authoritative depanding to verify address information... I refused until they disclosed who they were... Then I declined to speak to them.
Unknown Name: Some old broad told me it was M3. I hung up, called back and it was an InfoUSA recording. Also have had recent jerks ringing another number as I answered.
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.
This has become a pain in my back side. I reside in Florida,407 area code.
did not answer. no message. guess it's not important!
I called the number and received the message that the number had been disconnected.
Ugh...Mormons. They call and they come to my door, no matter how rude I am.
These practices need to stop. Report these (law breakers?) time wasters to the FCC at this web site esupport.fcc.gov No one is supposed to call you, and when you answer the phone, it is ringing like you were the one that initiated the call.
bastards... I got 2 secs of heavy breathing and a hangup. Austin TX.
A computer calling with recording, "If you would like to hear about a great church in your area, please press 1 now." No option to stop them from calling again is offered. Why is FCC permitting this?!
Frequent calls. No message left.
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.
Called twice Thursday, FOUR times Friday. Info USA. They collect information on businesses and sell it to those who will telemarket to the business later. I have them blocked, so all they get is a busy signal.
The bit of recording I heard was as others have reported: "an interesting new church in the area."
I did not answer. They did not leave a message either.
hung up after going to voice mail
I was asked if I was interested in a new church in my area. I was asked to press # 1. When I pressed 1 it said that was an invalid action and hung up. I wonder what the scam is ???
Rude person looking for information. Claims they give it to search engines. Already knew my name and address but wanted my email. When asked who's calling she would only reply "Info USA." (Did not give email address to her.)
I commented in March of this year, after they had been calling me for months. Shortly after the report they stopped calling, but have started again 8 months later. They are relentless. Please pick up and tell them to stop calling, they will not let up.
All the info they want you to verify is public info they can get just by asking the state (any state) Its called the freedom of information act.
I received a call from this caller on 10/31/07 at 10:11 am. The caller ID said "Out of Area" so I did not answer. A look up of the area code showed the caller is from Omaha, Nebraska.
I've received about a million calls from them. Why do they call so much and never leave a message. I wish they would stop, it's annoying.
call came in as 402-930-3659 OMAHA, NE , no one answers it goes to a ring.
I hung up.
New ORleans, LA
Rec'd ph call from Info USA (again) - [402-930-3659] - and this time I got really ugly. Told this stupid moron, you are marketing sleaze, vial, despicable garbage, never call us again, remove us off your junk call list, and hung up! WARNING: These folks are data mining, and phishing! - [30 secs.]
Call came in on 10/25/2007, at 8:50 AM, C.S.T., but I didn't get to posting it until just now.
Someone called our home phone from this # every 10 minutes for several hours yesterday.
Rec'd a phone call from Info, USA - [402-930-3659] - at 10:24 AM, C.S.T. - As soon as I picked up the phone, it immediately rang to another phone number. I hung up. Doing some research online, these folks are phishing for additional business info from unsuspecting people. DO NOT TRUST THIS SLEAZE!!!
This # came up and msg on ans machine was a reminder for my Dr appt the next day, which was in fact valid. Geez, when I worked for this hospital system, I had to manually call ALL my patients to remind them of appts. Things have changed. Must be an automated service.
Call them back at their toll free 800 number. This way they have to pay for the calls, and will eventually catch the drift. We don't want to be spammed! Just remember to block your number before calling... just in case they have called id.
CALL TO MAKE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE LOCATION AND INFORMATION ABOUT HOW MANY EMPLOYEES HAVE THE CO.
They're trying to harvest information so they can sell your name on "targeted" mailing lists.
They have a website.
Yeah, this is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints a.k.a. The Mormons, and yes they do call a lot, but they are pretty nice and they will stop calling if you ask. Although I know when you end up getting many repeat calls you automatically want to go on the defense, kinda like when you walk into a store and someone immediately jumps all over you and you just wanna say BACK OFF, instead we politely say "just looking"...
The call came from my former church in Florida to my cell phone, which has a Florida area code, but the area code of the number the call came from is the area code in which I am currently living.
Calls at least once a day. Never leaves a message.
I am on the DNC list. This # called me this afternoon. I did not pick up. No message was left on my machine.
The caller ID listed the caller name as 'unavailable'
Call 6-8 times a mo. in the last 3 mo. Found out the company name from calling back and got recording
I received a call from this number on my cell phone, which NOBODY has except immediately family. I didn't answer and they didn't leave a message.
I ordered the Book of Mormon online. I never received the book but they call me obsessively about 3 or 4 times per week. I called to have my number removed AND THE WOMAN ON THE PHONE SAID "WE DON'T MAKE OUTGOING CALLS"- LIAR. Screw Mormons. They really know how to scare people away!
9/25/07 She said she was from USI (whatever it is) and she asked if Ms.xxx is still the owner of our business. She wanted to update info for free advertisement and spoke in a hasty fashion. Told her there's been new ownership, Glad I gave them a wrong name. She thanked me.
It was just the Church of Jesus Christ checking up on some DVD's they had sent me. I didn't know it was the Church, it's ok.
Everyday they call, atleast twice. Tonight it was almost 9:00 pm.
*69 should this number. The recorded message said "If you would like to hear about an interesting new church coming to your area, press 1." Calling back the number resulted in "this number is not reachable from your area.
Just got my first call from this number - did not answer phone. I'm really getting sick and tired of these FUCKING morons calling my house. They can KISS MY ASS !!!!!!!!
FUCK THEM !!!!!!!!
ringing on message machine...
They are driving us crazy. They call 15-20/day. I'm reaching the point of having our number changed.
I don't think this seems right! Hope you didn't give information. I have them being checked out
She said they are internet search and she wanted to update our company info.
She disconnected after trying to transfer the call!
Searching on the internet they do not have a valid web page.
answered phone and then heard phone ring as if I was calling another number automatically! WEIRD
Answered then heard phone ringing and someone said "Hello". I hung up. Obviously a robot.
My voicemail got about 2 seconds of heavy breathing and then a hang-up. I suspect that their system did not recognize that the call had rolled to voicemail and the caller heard dead air from my end.
just called and i googled first...glad i did.
I ordered a Book of Mormon from them a couple of years ago. I read it, decided it wasn't for me. They called back about a year ago and I answered, I told them I wasn't interested. Now a year after that they're calling twice a day. Each time I've asked them not to call again, but they still call. Will respect my wishes, my ass.
Calls on cell phone. No messages left. Phone is on do not call list
Called this morning - my first time seeing this number. Reported to DNC - we'll see what happens now..I've been on the DNC for over a year and this is the first telemarketing call I've received.
answered, heard ringing, she asked if this was [business name] and I just hung up
y did diz fone # called my cell fone on 8/16/07 at 6:11 pm
hmm, my links disappeared from my previous post, so lets try this:
From the NC Sec. of State: The registered agent (and CEO) of phonetree is: Dibianca, A.J.; 2400 Reynolda Road,Winston Salem NC 27106. The site 411. com has listings for an A. Dibianca on Wickersham Ln. Same Guy? Don't know, maybe I should call and ask?
This is a company (800) 951-8733 who will invade your life by phone for a fee. I suggest raising holy hell with whoever hired them (church, water co., whoever) and telling them if they are going to use this kind of crap then do not call you period. The use of their technology may be illegal in some circumstances, but not in enough of them. You may also wish to express your displeasure to the folks at Phonetree, including the CEO, A.J. Dibianca. I found the following interesting, although I am not sure it has any value:
and I wondered about
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.
Press 1 to hear about an exciting new church in ... your area! I'm sorry that's an invalid choice
Wow, getting into the good graces of god by associating with jerks that harass thy neighbor.

Missed the call on my cellphone. Left no message. InfoUSA calls me a lot, so it may as well have been InfoUSA.
This is a huge network of credit card scamers, I have been traking them for moths, they will claim to be several diferent places: here is a list of names they use; Kay bank, financial services, alied collections and international conections.
they work out of; Panama, costa rica, Florida, arizona, ontario canada, south korea and india.

give no information to these people, if called you must contact the authorites
they called me at my business in Burbank, CA. I just answered hello, they started to ask questions and I said that this is a private residence, they apologized and have not called back.
called on my business ph. heard a "tap-tap-tap", a long puase and a "hello" and then hang up.
called again and left no message
They call my business repeatedly claiming to be a"business directory". Every time I ask to be taken off their calling list. They won't call for about 6 months, then start again.
no ID/ didn't answer. no msg left
they called, I did not pick up
No message left
THE PERSON HAD ALL MY BUSINESS INFO WHICH WAS NO BIG DEAL YET TALKED AS IF SHE WERE DOING A PAULA ABDUL IMPRESSION...VERY SLURRED
I've had several calls from this number and all they want is information about my business. When they are getting close to the end of the call, suddenly, they can't speak english. Then they hang up. If you call the number, it's a catch 22. Where and who do we contact to report these skummy people.
Glad I didn't answer. Thanks for your feedback
Check these 2 links on the CEO and check the backgrounds og the rest of their board.
IUSA is listed on
If you're really piss'ed off, let Gupta know on this Yahoo Stock Message Board;
They called me twice yesterday and I found this webpage when I searched the number. When they called today I was prepared and answered "Info USA. Can I help you?" The line was dead like it was yesterday.
Calls keep coming every day, but no-one on the other end of the line. How do I get this to stop????
i just got this call today at work asking questions: who's the manager, location, how many ppl working, manager's email (?), etc. i answered them since they already knew about the previous manager and i didnt see any harm. but i forgot what the woman said she was and what it was for. so i checked the id and all i saw was the number. then i checked the directory in the computer, and i saw omaha, NE and Qwest Corporation.
here's the site for info on them: ir.infousa.com
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!
They called because my wife requested their book out of curiousity. First few times they left voicemail and asked if the book was received. From there on they just kept calling and hang up after two rings and left no message.
When they call, if you ask their Indian or Filipino representative: "What color panties are you wearing"? they get upset and stop calling.
Called me this morning, left a voicemail with nothing. Called me two days ago, left a voicemail with some background talking. My #'s unlisted, I dunno how they got it in the first place.
Next time you get the call and you pick up only to hear it ring as if you made the call, tell the person "say knock knock." If they are stupid enough they will, then you can say "who's there?" That's what they just did to you!
Called my work number. For some reason it just transferred directly to my voicemail. There was 2 seconds of silence and then a female (sounded automated or well-practiced) simply said "thank you so much for your time."
Trying to "update our info" to sell to advertisers.
I called the # back and got a long recording on how to go about updating our business info. I could do that by going on line also...
lady was speaking, Gave her a phone number so she can speak to somebody who speak english, she nerver called back
Saw this number on Caller ID when I came back from working out. My opinion; just don't answer if you don't know who it is. They're morons but probably will keep calling. My caller ID simply showed the number and "Nebraska."
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.
These people just won't stop annoying me. From what I can tell, they are boiler room whores shilling for a variety of scammers who are paid based on the number of calls they make. The Do Not Call list is irrelevant to them.
I was told that this is a small collection firm for both information and skip tracing for a number of credit and collection companies. I think their regular number is 320-587-3371
They never leave a message. I think it is one of those credible collection agencies. I wish that they lived near us as we could tar and feather them for starters.
