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
"Dianne" | dianne |
dianne calls from 7 phone numbers:
This scammer uses fake phone numbers from all over the country. The number that appears on my caller I.D. is
(510)699-6152. That prefix is from Oakland, Calif. (I doubt if that is where the call originated from!)
I have been seeing numerous complaints from people who are on the do-not-call list. I see that this outfit
has already been fined $10,000 in Idaho for violating the DNC (same "Dianne", etc.) It doesn't seem to have
I got the "this is diane" robo call in Edmonds, WA and pushed the # key. To my delight the recording started at the beginning each time. Did this 2hrs while watching tv. Maybe if everybody did this it would slow them down
I have been harrassed by Mann Bracken for months. They have not stopped calling despite my demands for them to cease and desist per the Fair Credit Practices Act guidelines.
They have not proven any debt that I owe, and have never responded to any of my correspondence. I told them they had 30 days to not only prove the debt, but that they had legal standing to collect it. I also demanded that they have my alleged creditor send proof to me directly that they have hired this law firm to handle this matter. Without this information, I would never consider giving any personal information to these people or cooperate with them in any way. Anyone can say they are collecting a debt. They have failed to provide proof of anything.
Their fax number is fraudulent, and when I spoke with them they would not provide a correct fax number as they said they only want to talk to people. This tells me that they refuse to obey the law when I tell them I will only communicate in writing.
I spoke with three different people on the phone, all of them lied to me, and none of them would answer my questions. One of them even called me an "a**."
ALL of these things are illegal and are against the Fair Credit Practices Act. I found the following website which says what you can actually sue for regarding their unfair practices and harrassment. These people need to be stopped, and when I have seen the great number of people that they are harrassing, it makes the fight even more important.
dead air call again. report to esupport.fcc.gov
301-882-9977 calls infrequently and never leaves a message. If you answer, there is no one there (I am assuming they are all out to lunch). Today, a Sunday, they called at 2:35 PM. Again, no message (it was a missed call for me). Maybe they just missed me in Church.
RIP-OFF bottom suckers. Got a call from MANN BRACKEN law firm informing that we owe about $5K to First USA and they are lawyers hired by their client (First USA) to collect monies owed the credit card company. I asked them if they were a collection agency who buys old, written-off debts for pennies on the dollar. The 'paralegal' told me, "No, we are not a collection agency, we are a law firm hired by the credit card company to recover monies owed to them. We're not like collection agencies who buy old debts." They served papers on us to appear in court, then tried to make settlement with us over the phone - 75% of the debt owed. Then they offered 60%. We showed up at the courthouse and there was a rep from MANN BRACKEN standing just inside the courthouse settling debts on the spot (in open public area) and making arrangements for folks to make payments - rather than proceed with the legal action. There were about 20-25 people lined up to talk to this guy. We were told that we didn't have to come to court because we were in negotiations/settlement action with MANN BRACKEN. What a waste of time, gas, $10 parking and frustration to show up at the courts and be told that crap.
These people call everyday, but when we answer there is no one on the other end of the phone; we call it back and it goes straight to voicemail, and they never leave a message. Very irritating.
Well they called again tonight at 6:45pm. I answered as it was only a number (no name) but there was no one on the other end of the phone.
Strange as I made a payment to them on the 15th in person in their offices. I don't get it.
We have been receiving messages from thses people for weeks asking us to relay a message to our daughter-in-law. We get three messages a day every day. My son has divorced this woman and we have no intention of passing any message to her from this firm. My next step is to contact Maryland authorities to report this harassment.
I receive several calls a day from this number, 301-882-9977, but they never leave a message. Upon searching the web, I found this website. This does belong to:
Mann Bracken LLP

(Got this from their letterhead I have)
Also this is on the notice:
"PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE LAW FIRM OF MANN BRACKEN LLP IS THE SUCCESSOR BY MERGER TO WOLPOFF & ABRAMSON, LLP. IN THE FUTURE, MANN BRACKEN LLP WILL BE THE LAW FIRM HANDLING THIS MATTER. AS A SUCCESSOR BY MERGER, MANN BRACKEN, LLP MAINTAINS THE IDENTICAL ADDRESS AS THE FORMER WOLPOFF & ABRAMSON, LLP AND YOUR ACCOUNT NUMBER HAS NOT CHANGED.

This is a company that sent me several Collection letters as they were given my account from Discover Card Services (800-347-5342). I am late on my payments due to loss of job & work related injury. I've been juggling what money I do have to keep my house from foreclosure, electricity on, food in the house, etc.
When I called them, the woman was rude but as I explanined why the account had fallen into collection, she still wanted the full amount in a lump sum, then it was changed to 1/2 lump some to settle but none of that was within any financianl means I had. We did arrange 3 low monthly payments after which the 3rd was paid, to re-negotiate the balance for payoff. I did pay the 1st one in cash with receipt directly in their offices in Rockville, MD as promised (even received a letter in the mail to confirm as well). I have to say they have an entire floor in the building and it's very plush. They are making lots of money to afford that real estate. I paid cash because I will not release any banking info to them. It's none of their business where I bank.
Question is why do they continue to call, not leave messages when I already have a payment plan set up? Makes no sense and certainly feels like intimidation to me.
I'm sorry I can't pay the debt in a more timely manner but some things have been out of my control and I'm just trying to be honest, explain my circumstances and pay off my debts as soon as possible. Believe me the stress of having bills hanging over my head, no employment and trying to keep my house is enough stress without a company continuing to call me daily without leaving messages when I'm already working with them.
Then I read all these posts and others and it's saddens me these people are getting away with this stuff. I'm wondering now, if I've made a deal with the devil on trying to repay this debt.
PLEASE CALL ASS HOLE< YOU FUCKING BITCH!!!!!!!!!
This company has called my home everyday since I moved in on January 1, 2009. They have left messeges and I have asked them to stop calling and they continue to call.
OK, these people call and call but the person they want is not at this number. Read about how crooked they are at mannbrackenwatch.blogspot.com and collectionagencyhallofshame.blogspot.com and you will get some ideas. I finally got Matt Linkie on the phone and let him have it. He told me that their autodialer has issues. I told him it was $1,000 per issue by the FDCPA. They have not called since then. One guy on a blog said he's sued them 12 times for the $1,000 in Small Claims court. They never showed up and had to pay!
These people have called me on a number I've had for around 6 years looking for someone I've never heard of. They've called at least 10-15 times, on weekends, at nights, always with a recording telling me to call the "law office of Mann Bracken." I have called at least twice and left messages with my telephone number telling them they have the wrong person, but the calls haven't stopped. Some research may be helpful: Mann Bracken is a Maryland law firm, and they are required to comply with Maryland rules of discipline. You can file a complaint that this firm has been harassing you at this link: www.courts.state.md.us If enough of us do it, the harassment will stop!!!
Carpet service called, I pressed one, spoke to a man who identified the company as Direct Carpets. I'm on the Do Not Call List and they repeatedly call anyway. I'd like to take them to small claims court and sue them.
Caller did not leave a message while we were out.
Assumed to be a collector from past experience with this number. When we first received this phone number after a move it was almost impossible to use our phone because these people were always calling.
It has been almost a year till today since we have heard from them.
Have been getting this recorded message about carpet cleaning for months now. When this used to be my landline (and was on the DO NOT CALL LIST) AND now that it is my Cell phone- also on the Do Not Call list for over a month.
My caller id on the cellphone does not show the phone #, it says "private call".
The message says it's a carpet cleaning company (I think it was called Diane's but they spoke quickly) and offers me a free hallway cleaning for listening to the message and tells me to press 2 to make an appointment.
This time I finally answered it and pretended I wanted more information. I asked the slavic sounding woman who answered if they were a local company and she said, we have lots of affiliates, what's your zipcode? When I gave her my zipcode she said we have a number in your area: Walnut Creek, San Francisco, Oakland. I asked for the name of the one in Oakland and she seemed to say (her accent was unclear) that she would just make the appointment for me. I said I wanted to know the name and if that company was paying for this call. I then mentioned that I'm on the DO NOT CALL list and she just flat out hung up on me.
When I googled the text of the phone message I found others who reported the same call w/ an actual phone #:
I'm filing a complaint at DONOTCALL.GOV
Every Sunday I get called from this Maryland call number. Either nothing there or asking for a Wm Krawza. Truly irritating.
Don't Hang up, Don't tell them that your on the DNC. Just make an apointment. I made one for my office building as a house. It was great to see a cleaning truck drive up wait awhile and then peal out of the parking lot. They're not going to play by the rules of humanity, so let them pay the price.
Recorded message from Dianne regarding carpet cleaning, press 1 to make appointment. They called my cell, which is on the do not call list, so I pressed one and some guy answered. I said, "You need to remove me from your calling list." He did not say another word, he just hung up. I reported the call to the national do not call registry, which my cell has been on for over a year. I called back on a landline to request to be taken off their list, but I get a recording stating that the number I have dialed is not in service. If it's not in service, how the heck did they call me and what can I do to STOP it!!!??
answered the call - but the person on the other end never spoke....
I am on the DNC, why I get calls. It's very annoying.
i feel, my sin is...couldn't get in touch with you...that's why i have to struggle, so you don't show up
terrible feelings (but i know i couldn't get out of the relationship that time)
I hope I will see you again....
nothing happened, but I don't call you anymore
the 800notes and whocallsme cannot be reached.....
Even though my home and cell are on Do Not Call and I have asked this number to remove me from the calling list, calls are received every day or two. I have reported this violation twice to the DNC Registry.
If you would like to enjoy your time with me, you have my number or you can see me....................................................................................................
yeah, I am going to complain
If you are on the National Do Not Call list file a complaint at:
Recorded message wanting to clean my carpet. Another idiot.
Finally, I could reach this page....difficult to open
yeah the same message, but you call back and.....
the same message
Diane asking to clean my carpets
Answered the call; however the person on the other end never spoke..so I hung up
Answered the call - but the person on the other end never spoke.
Dianne from Carpet Care left a message to press 1 to make an appointment. I did this to determine a company name. A man answered and I asked if this was Carpet Care Company and he hung up. I then called the number on the caller ID but reached a message that said the "BEEPERS TO GO number is disconected". It gave an 877 number to call but it was so fast I could not get all of the numbers. I then looked "Beepers to Go" up on the net and found a number in Palm Beach County Florida. When I called the number back, I was rudely told to call the phone company to complain. She would not explain how a beeper number can make outgoing calls.
File complaints at www.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx and www.fcc.gov/cgb/donotcall/#howtocomplain If you file with both the FTC and FCC action is more likely to happen. This is if you are on the national do not call list. If on the Florida do not call list, file at www.800helpfla.com
This is a prerecorder commercial call from "Carpet Care Services" - I know because I just got one of these and have now reported it to the FTC and FCC. I've received calls from this company on several phones. Sign up your phone at donotcall.gov and you can also help stop these junk calls. There are substantial penalties for doing what this company is doing, and some lawyers are starting to specialize in going after this sort of stuff.
Recorded message with Dianne asking if I need my carpets cleaned...
I'm also on the do not call list.
Recorded message with Dianne asking if I need my carpets cleaned...
I'm on the do not call list...
There is no Diane... not available
Received this is a recorded message regarding carpet cleaning on my cell phone. "Hi, this is Diane... and for listening to my message, we'll clean your hallway for free...press 1 to make an appointment..." I pressed 1 to let them know I'm on them know I'm on the DNC list. When they answered they said, "Carpet Care, would you like to make an appointment?" I said, "No, what is the name of your company?" They hung up immediately. I've seen several other reports about this one on other message boards as well.
Call is coming from Global Crossing Inc, resold by Level 3 communications. Their fraud line is 800-348-5457. Call them to report it and they will remove your number. Gotta love the net!
I had a friend in the DMV check out that license plate (3POG927): It comes back to a 1995 Honda, and he lives in an apartment on Newcastle Ave in Encino, so I don't think it's the right license plate. If someone DOES manage to get the right license plate, please post it here. I will gladly post the person or company NAME and ADDRESS.
I got 2 calls from them and on the second call I wanted to talk to someone to tell them I want off of their list. When I pressed "1" it hung up. What is the purpose of this?
For the record This is a collection law Firm:
Wolpoff & Abramson, LLP
Two Irvington Centre 702 King Farm Blvd.
Rockville, MD 20850-5775
This is 1 of thier 3 addresses. Here is the other:
5215 N. O'Conner Blvd. #1060
Irving, TX 75039
Be very careful when dealing with these jerks. THEY will Sue you. However, they never have enough evidence to support their claims.
This phone number is owned by Teleport Communications Los Angeles. We should bombard them that this phone number is being used in violation of state and federal law. Anybody game?
I changed my phone number because of this.
please: everybody order their service, and direct them to a wrong address. they WILL delete your phone number after that!
I've gotten many many calls from "Diane". Usually if I press "1" to "make an appointment", which is the only option, it hangs up. Once I did get through to someone and the person hung up on me when I started to request they take me off their list. Recently, they started calling my mobile number. They're the worst, I hope they get fined.
Never been so pissed, actually took the time to file a hand written complaint with the FCC.
Pressed 1 to tell them to take me off the list and they hung up. So frustrating. Where is the government when I need them!
This moron keeps calling my cell too!! NO I DONT WANT MY HALL CLEANED FOR FREE!!
I just got a call from this. When I asked "how did you get this number?" The operator hung up on me.
This is the 2nd time I've received a call from this outfit. The first time was in February from a number 818-230-8502, but it was the same recorded message. Everybody needs to file a complaint with the FCC at www.fcc.gov then maybe these bastards will be put out of business.
Caller ID: 310-405-6388
Caller: Diane's Carpet Cleaning
Caller Type: Telemarketer
Someone on another board scheduled an appt. at an empty house Guy came driving an unmarked van with license plate 3POG927 He called his office and they called him from a Northridge number 818-534-6825 Everyone schedule appts. Waste their time and gas like they waste our cell phone minutes. Don't give the police station address, saw where they were wise to that ruse.
waited for the automatic message to end,
pressed 1 to make appointment
i asked what is the company name again
then i said im going to make an appointment with a lawyer cos im on the do not call list
person starts saying
then i said "go f* yourself you piece of sh*t"
call said 'hi, this is dianne!' do you need your carpets cleaned.... then i hung up.
Automated call from a carpet cleaning company.
After reading the responses this "company" is in direct violation of the Do Not Call Registry. Start filling complaints on the Do Not Call website. You will need as much information as possible; time of call, day of call, number called from, name of company (if possible). The more complaints filed the more something can be done.
recorded carpet cleaning call from 'diane' on my cell. Call back was busy signal. I'm mad! Next time, schedule the carpet cleaning, and send them to the local police station or pizza hut address. tit for tat. much better than getting mad. In fact, schedule cleaning at multiple locations at the same time - all bogus. then post results here for a good laugh!!
Called me too. Tried to call back using this number, busy. these guys need to get mamed
I've gotten a few calls on my cell from telemarketers this year even though I registered my cell# with the FTC in August 2007. I don't think there's much we can do because they just change their number and start all over again, just don't answer calls from strange numbers, they'll leave a message or keep calling back if it's that important right? Maybe I will schedule a carpet cleaning and give them the address of my local police station!
This idiots called my cell!
I am so glad I didnt answer, Im not about to pay for an unwanted call/sales call!!!
check out this site with the same phone # complaint.
someoene actually scheduled an appointment and got a license plate # and their real phone# 818-534-6825.
so everyone call them and schedule carpet cleaning at fake addresses.
Telemarketing recording of "Diane... about carpet cleaning". Same recording has called my home (do not call list) two of our cell #s also called my main office #. I think it is an autodialer that dials a 310 area code, then a south bay prefix, and just runs through the numbers. If they call another one of my "inside lines" at my office, I think I'll schedule an appointment to get their business info, then broadcast that to the world so we can all retaliate!
Auto-dialer from woman offering carpet cleaning. Violating Do Not Call List. Will not stop calling.
The person who picked up the call when I pressed "1" to complain was rude. I told her I wanted to be placed on their "do not call" list, that this was my cell phone number, and I wanted their information - company name, phone number, and her name. She asked why I wanted that information. I said, "because it's the law." She laughed at me and hung up.
Asked them how my number got on their list, and they hung up on me
"Answered the phone and it was a recorded carpet cleaning offer from Diane's Carpet Cleaning. At the end, the recorded voice prompts the listener to press one to make an appointment. I pressed one and told the person who answered that I wanted off their automatic call list, and the person hung up on me."
-me too, total scumbags
Hey maybe we should all make appointments to have our carpets cleaned, tell them you have a big 5,000sf home to get them drooling, then send them to a random address.
someone findout who this annoying carpet cleaning company is. can't call back number it does not connect
I've received a call from them before but appeared as "Unknown" on my caller ID, they left voicemail with a recording about a carpet cleaning service. So I proceeded to register my cell number at that DoNotCall.gov, and then I got another call from this phone number 310-405-6388 this morning, but no voicemail. What we can do is report it to our cell phone company and see if they can block the caller?
yes, rec'd call no message.
Just a constant busy when you try and ca;; back.
I too got call from this number on Feb 29 08 at around 12:30 PM and somehow I didnot receive this call. When I call back I get to hear busy beep.
I got a call from this number and did not leave a message.
I got the exact same thing as JT. When I asked about it and asked them politely to remove me, they hung up on me.
When I answered the phone, they hung up.
Just got this robocall on my cell phone from "Diane" for carpet cleaning. When I pressed '1' to make an appointment and get the company's name, my call was disconnected. The caller ID was actually blocked on the incoming call. (I got this same call yesterday on my home phone.)
I reported then to the national do not call registry. They are using Carpet Care and a name on the recorded message. I pressed #1 to get connected and they hung up on me, and now the line is busy. It is bad enough to get these calls at home, but not on my Cell.
Filled a complaint about the calls with the Redondo Beach Police, Detective Carren 310 379-2477 x2317 and then scheduled some carpet cleaning. Two Eastern Europeans in an unmarked white van, no business name, pimped out by "Mike" 888-533-8000.
Answered the phone and it was a recorded carpet cleaning offer from Diane's Carpet Cleaning. At the end, the recorded voice prompts the listener to press one to make an appointment. I pressed one and told the person who answered that I wanted off their automatic call list, and the person hung up on me.
I didn't recognize the number so I let it hit the answering machine - apparently it's an interactive junk-phonecalls machine! You're supposed to hit "1" to 'take advantage of their cleaning offer'..yeah right! WTF is the FCC doing to nab these bastards?
Some one has posted my name and business number on line saying that my company is making these calls. The phone company says someone has hijacked my number and is using the Internet to make these endless calls. My company is not a carpet cleaning business and I don't have any employees except my husband.
I don't give my phone number to anyone - i dialed the number back, it rang busy at first then it started ringing then it rang busy again. Make sure you register your number with donotcall.gov and then file complaints every time you receive calls from numbers like this. It works. One day we'll have call block for cell phones - can't happen soon enough.
line busy when I tried calling back. I was also getting calls from thier former number. jerks
It is a "carpet cleaning" service. They used another number in the past: 310.494.0252.
Looks like they were forced to get a new number after receiving complaints.
Tried calling back and it's always busy
Just reported them. Carpet cleaning by Diane. When I waited and hit the '1', they hung up on me.
How do we find these f*ckers' REAL number so we can harrass them a few times a day?? Was being called on my personal cell by 310-494-0252 which I did not recognize. Since they weren't leaving a message I finally answered one day only to hear an automated chick named 'Diane' trying to sell carpet cleaing services. I pushed '1' "to make an appointment" and when I politely asked to have my number taken off their solitaion list the stupid bitch hung up before I finished my sentance! I don't wanna just report them, I wanna jam their phone lines for the inconvienence of having repeated calls from them...Anyone wanna got a beat on what the company's real name is?
it seems there is a Level 3 Abuse Hotline for people in need of more: 877 877-0648
ditto...to my emergency cellphone at $1 per minute!, they hung up when questioned. Another forum 800notes.com has identified 310 402-5119 as belonging to a telemarketing/internet company Broadwing Content Delivery Network whose telephone number is 1-800-Broadwing (800 276-2394)a subsidiary of Level 3 Communications of Broomfield,CO 877-321-5465 James Q. Crowe CEO, or local LA office 512 742-3700.
A possible client might be Quality Carpet Cleaning running the Google banner ad on this website, 800 675-7768 Al Moses, 4701 W. SanFernando Road, Glendale, CA 90039, -this is unconfirmed.
i just got a call from them on my cell phone! i dont know how they got this number. i pressed 1 as prompted and when i asked the operator to take me off their call list, she hung up on me. wow!
(310)402-5119 this number called my cellphone and didn`t leave a message.
What makes me mad thats on my cellphone.
some lady said that that is a house and there is no carpet cleaning company. told me not to call again.
it's on my way home. may be I should stop by and check it out.
yea i got a cal from this number too...
missed the call at my cell, no message, nobody picked up when i called back.
I picked up and said "hello? hello?" and then they hung up.
Perhaps next time I will say "LAPD", "FBI" or "FCC" + "how can I direct your call?"
Information to suing them:
Its not as difficult as you think...
this is annoying. just called and hang up.
Yes, everyone make an appoitment when they call. Be sure to use this address in Los Angeles, 18000 Studebaker Rd., Suite 660, Cerritos, CA 90703. That's the Federal Communications Commission, Los Angeles District Office.
yep, steam cleaning for me, too. I have hardwood floors.
The call was a prerecorded message from "Debbie" offering carpet cleaning. The call was made to my wireless phone and the number is an original wireless number, not a home number ported to my cell. The FCC needs to stop these idiots.
Here is Felipe's address and phone number per public records:
2116 Vanderbilt Ln
Redondo Beach, CA 90278-3042
Same thing happened to me. They called me and I called back with my cell and now my cell has a freaking virus. what the hell??
It's a recording from a Carpet Cleaning service, so how that got my cell number
Daniel, you rock!! they called twice and hung up on me when i said the phone call was being recorded.
They called my cell phone and did not leave a message. I tried calling back and no one answered.
Cell call was from "Diane" about carpet cleaning. Filed a DNC list violation complaint with the FTC.
Per Albert's posting below I called 411 and got the number for Felipe G. Rebagliati & Ana P
All in Redondo Beach, CA 90278. A woman answered and said that she does not do carper cleaning but that her friend "Miracle" at 310-697-6759 does. I called Miracle, who only said his name was indeed Miracle after I asked him if he does carpet stemaing. I told him why I was calling and he said he does no marketing whatsoever but sounded very concerned that Felipe's name was on the internet.
I ANSWERED THE PHONE, RECORDED CARPET CLEANING OFFER FROM "DIANNE" I PRESSED "1" AN OPERATOR ANSWERED, I ASKED VERY NICELY TO BE REMOVED AND SHE HUNG UP ON ME.
Cold call on my cell phone. I asked to be removed and they hung up before I could even finish speaking.
Just received a call from this # today 1-31-08 while at work but I didn't answer. So I called backed blocked and there was no answer, it rang forever. So I decided to google the number since there was no voicemail it had to be a land line and to my surprise I found this site! How crazy.
Just got hit.
got a call on my cell. did not pick up since it was an unknown number. I called back twice without any answer or recording. . phone bis located between the 105 & 110 FWY CROSSSECTION OF EL SEGUNDO BLVD
This annoying call to my cell phone was missed but I called back and no answer. This phone number is not known to me from anyone that I know or do business with.
someone post their contact info and lets crush them
Got this call today...already filed a complaint with the "do not call" folks. Hopefully they will be fined into the stoneage. Great site
I just got a call from Diane with Carpet Care on my cell phone. I do not know how they got my number. I do not even live in the L.A. area. When I asked where they were located they hung up on me.
just got a phone call from these guys, no message
Just got a call, 1/31 at 1pm. Filed a complaint as well.
Great site to get info!
I have a great idea...let's all set up appointments and have them show up at an office building or even better local police station.
Steam cleaning offer
Thanks to all those that filed a complaint.. I hope the feds do kick their ass for calling my cell.
I got a call today 1-31-08 from that number, I never gave my number out and I have no idea who they are. I didn't answer the call. I hate we crap like that calls my cell phone!
Stupid robocall from "Diane", with a carpet cleaning offer. And because I was "so nice", they're going to clean my hallway for FREE! Stayed on the line and pressed 1 to make an appointment. I asked the operator the name of the company, and she said "Carpet Care. Do you want to make an appointment?" I said, "No, this number is on the Do-Not-Call List." And she hung up.
I guess it's because I'M SO NICE.
Filed a complaint at the do not call registry.
this so-and-so hung up on me when I told them they were in violation of the do not call registry!
Simply report them to the do-not-call registry and they will be fined by the US Government!
you can register a complaint there!

This spam number called me and I was mad because it is my cell phone!!! So i pressed the "one" key to make an appointment as indicated by the recorded message. Then, a woman picked up and I asked how she got my cell phone number and the bitch hung up on me.
Steam cleaning company, automated call, I am on the Do Not Call list and dont even live in the Los Angeles area anymore.

This carpet cleaning company is run by: Felipe G. Rebagliati & Ana P
All I found is their mailing address based on my search: 2116 Vanderbilt Ln #C, Redondo Beach, CA 90278

Just got this call. Glad I let it go. Never gave # out either.
Hrm, anyone have more info on them? I want to file a report on them.
they are Cleaning Concepts by laura in Long Beach CA
Just got a call from that number. I didn't answer it because I did not recognize the number, but by your comments, I see that it's a sales call. Don't know how they got my number. Thanks.
Wow lots of ppl getting calls from them! Mines on Jan 30, 2008 @ ~2:30p PST. My # is 310-871-xxxx, not sure how they got my # too.
it's Laura's Carpet Cleaning. spam caller.
cold call on my cell phone. all week. asked the operator how they got my # and they hung up.
Got a call from them, "Carpet Care". I asked for information and they hung up on me. I'm on the do-not-call registry and they still called!
I picked up my cell phone to an unsolicited call from a steam cleaning offer. I haven't ever given my number out, or used it for anything but Directv. I pressed "0" to talk to an operator and see who they were, but the computer hung up on me.
These are bottomfeeder junk debt buyers who call themselves lawyers. Go to Budhibbs . com to read all about them, and how to stop them. If you are being harassed by these thugs, you should change your number to an unlisted one.
I have to agree with all the comments below, this is harassment at its best this firm too calls my home twice somtimes more a day for someone that is not here. We have told them they have the wrong number and that we are not the people they are looking for, but the call continue. My next step is the legal step. We are innocent and being harassed, its not right nor should I have to get an unlisted phone number. Find their address, send a certified mail stating to take your name off the calling list as you are not the person they are looking for. Also call the authorities and file a complaint using the Call Trap through your local phone provider if they dont stop calling after the letter. If after they still dont get the idea, then sue them, $1000.00 would be nice for the effort.
They were calling my home looking for a neighbor. Humiliation tactics. It was a automated call and I had to call them back in order to reach a live person and tell them to stop calling me. This has been going on for a week. Bunch of scumbags.
Lets get these bottom feeders stopped! Class action suit is the only way. Check out this website...www.lawyersandsettlements.com
After being harassed by these idiots for over 2 years (8 calls yesterday!), I had to do something. I refused to go through the inconvenience/cost of changing my number to a private one. I found this FREE download (you must already have CallerID service and broadband): www.softpedia.com
There's another download for dial-up users for $16: www.softpedia.com
Let them waste mucho $$$ calling me now!
They call twice a day. If you pick up and don't make a sound, their auto-dialing-computer-system won't respond, and it'll call you back in ~10 minutes. If you make a sound, like "Hello?", then the automated message kicks in "blah blah blah, your-computerized-name is pronounced, blah blah blah". If you ignore them, they keep to their auto-calling schedule (twice a day or such). If you finally break down and call them, and tell them they have the wrong "John Doe", they'll say your name will be removed from the list, and it could take up to 3 to 4 business days to update in their system. That's a lie. Their system stays intact. Or, they're too dumb to remove it.
I will probably end up switching VOIP providers, so I can block specific callers. Right now, Vonage doesn't offer it. Verizon VoiceWing does. Why go to the trouble, when you know they have the wrong number? Google around. You'll see that even innocent (non-debt) people are forced to spend legal fees to defend themselves.
Don't ever give out revealing info over the phone. Another caller (non-automated) asked if my last-4 SSN was, let's say, "1234". Idiot. Ask to be mailed any questions, even if you think answering them on the phone will stop them. They won't stop. They're fishing for information.
Next time I get any non-automated calls, or if I eventually speak to one per a reply, I'm going to tell them that their call is being recorded, and do just that. Keep records. This company is desperate to get anybody to pay the debt.
Got a recorded message, get them all the time
301-882-9977, this is the same number that has been calling twice a day for the last four months, now instead of W&A as the caller id, they are using NOM DESCONOCIDO.
Dirt bags from hell. They have people that call you claiming they are lawyers or paralegals, threaten you with jail, arrest, you name it.
Bill Collector - Your get an automated voice stating your name. Then it will tell you to call them back for a important personal matter.
I don't know why these bottom feeding vermin keep calling here - we don't owe anyone anything. I don't even answer the phone when I see their numbers anymore. They keep chaning their numbers and sometimes the caller ID shows two numbers with W&P in between them. How do you get rid of these jerks? This is a business phone line - so I have to answer incoming calls - unless I recognize the number. What really sucks is you can't block them because they are a business!!! What's wrong with the phone companies? You pay them good money just so you can receive this kind of crap all day long!!!
This so-called legal firm has numerous numbers they call from including 240/249-7501, 800/678-7720, 866/451-2274, 301/882-9975, 301/882-9976, 301/882-9978, 301/882-9979, 888/845-0146, 800/830-2793, 240/249-7502, & 240/249-7503.
Best thing to do is either totally ignore and not pick up (though they will continue to call for months) or send them one of those Do Not Call letters by certified mail that can be found on the internet. Once they receive one of those from you specifically spelling out that they are NOT to contact you at home or work by phone, they are supposed to cease phone contact. Usually they don't want to waste a stamp to write much less have something in writing you can possibly use against them.
They keep calling my house every day. The person who they are calling for doesn't even live here anymore and they won't stop.
Seems same or similar spam as "Chevy Chase MD" 2402497503
They keep calling, and I either answer and immediately hang up or don't answer. This is a new number for them to use when calling. They call my fax as well as the regular number. I have told them once to not call but they continue to call; two times within 3 minutes morning and evening. I am sick of it.
I keep getting calls from these people. They're looking for someone with the same last name as mine. I've told them the have the wrong number and to stop calling me but they keep calling and calling and calling. Any ideas on how to get them to stop calling or where I can report them as harassing??
Yet another call from these c clowns. I always ignore them.
Does anyone know if changing my phone number and making the new number a 'silent number' would throw them off the trail, or do these people have access to at&t and government databases etc?
