Now over time, William McChesney Martin, summed it up to £750 goes straight into your site information ready, getting the numbers we'll accept.,
I have been on the phone with verizon wireless directly since 1/6/2010 with concerns of this 800-261-1646 # When you call this # it's a verizon recording that keeps circling and no one ever answers. 2 customer service reps and a supervisor have tried this # can not get through to anyone and can not confirm if this company is outsourced by them. One of the supervisor's even suspects that this co just recorded a verizon wireless message and put it on their phone. BEWARE!!! They ask you to confirm all your information. They actually asked me to confirm my 9 digit ss#. I told them if they really have my account info they already know the info. They also told me the name of the co is Connect North America. The incoming calls from this # is very harassing. Tonight I receive 5 calls every 1/2 hr and they are now blocking their # using 000-000-0000. Verizon Wireless has given me the FRAUD DEPT # 800-521-1841 which I will be calling. Everyone must call the FRAUD DEPT so they will start doing something about this. They also marked my account for no soliciting from within the company, so if the calls continue it's definitely not Verizon wireless calling.
I was a former employee and i was just called by Verizon from a former friend a former friend at VPS! apparently they were bought by Verizon Wireless and will keep calling you.
Looks to me like there were NO MORE COMPLAINTS after November 2008....I wonder what happened to VPS????????
I just learned that the smartest people on the planet hang out on these web sites. Get a life people!
These parasites have been calling for years. Don't answer. Turn off ringer. Maybe the Feds will finally catch these scumbags if they are interested
These people have been calling me for years. Sometimes they identify themselves as the Fraternal Order of Police, sometimes TN Police Federation. The person who calls me is always the same guy. He won't take no for an answer and says he'll put me down for a $25 donation even though I say I'm not donating anything. He gets really nasty when I tell him I'm not donating "period", and to take me off the list, which he refuses to do. I made the mistake of donating several years ago when I got the first call, thinking it was a good cause, but the next year I couldn't afford to donate and he got ugly with me and has been just as nasty ever since. This last time I told him HE personally is the reason I will no longer donate to this organization. The way this guy treats the people he calls is causing the organization to lose money. They need to get rid of this guy!
I've heard its a 3rd party hired by Verizon to re-new contracts. Also heard it's actually Verizon calling. Also heard it's a MAJOR scam & to be really careful relaying information. Even if you're on the DO NOT CALL list, these people call anyway - hang up - and hope people call back. That way, you're ORIGINATING the call and thus waiving their liability! DON'T CALL IT BACK!
I work for the 1 800 310 5479. We only call you to renew your contract and give promos. we are not trying to sell you a $400 phone. the we get paid is if you buy a phone we get $0.50. no matter if is $400 phone or a free phone. and we work on behalf of Verizon Wireless. So if you want us not to call just say DO-NOT-CALL-LIST please.. but its real and good deals. most of the time we put you on cheaper plans and save you money.
Folks.....am an insider who knows the truth....
You are being called by 3rd Party company called VPS who is contracted through Kipany to Verizon. VPS is owned, managed, and directed by convicted FELONS, calling you with personal information obtained from Verizon. There is a better than 50% chance the person actually calling you is CRIMINAL.....and in many cases still incarcerated.
VPS is a Drug Infested, Criminal Operation funded by Verizon. If you give these people ANY agreement, you are opening yourself up to Identity Theft, Burglary, and other mayhem..
Verizon has the information at highest levels, there is current full investigation going on, but you need to call the Verizon Office of Ethics and Business Conduct with your complaint. Everything this company tells you is either a direct lie, or misleading information to Con you into one and two year contracts.....
There is very real probability of Criminal Indictment of Kipany, VPS, as well as Verizon Executives that hatched this plan and put you at risk.....Go to Verizons Website...get the number for the complaint....make the complaint...
If this is indeed Verizon wanting me to accept a 'deal' and renew my phone services by phone, i've already been burned doing that. if i answer and it is a person offering that, i will tell them.
the 'deal' i got was neither a deal or helpful to me, and 2 years later, i'm still trying to fix the problem.
I was receiving hangups from this number all week so I decided to call the number today. It is Verizon Wireless, which I do have. When I told the rep that I was getting hangups she said that shouldn't be happening and checked to find out why I was being called. Turns out they were calling to tell me 1)I could get a discount on a new phone, mine is 4yrs old and 2)I'm paying too much for the minutes I'm using. It's saving me 5 bucks a month so I can't complain too much. :) Before I hung up I said something to the rep about not getting anymore hangups and she said I shouldn't.
Just put them to music on hold - switch to Nine Inch Nails for the music - quite loudly - hope they enjoyed their "treat"
This number call our home
2 times today, 5/14/08
This is getting very annoying, as this phone is an unlisted number
May 7, 2008 - I have been getting calls from them at least twice a day for the last two weeks and as others have described, as soon as I pick up, they hang up. Strange. I am reporting this number.
Just over two months ago I extended my contract with VZW for two years and 'downgraded' to the minimum monthly plan available through VZW. Since I never go over my alloted minutes or text messages nor have I missed a payment, I see no reason why I should receive any call from VZW or affiliated company. I have recently received calls from this number to my VZW cellular phone on two occasions. The first was about three weeks ago and the second was today. In both cases I didn't answer the call as I don't see why I should use my minutes on unknown solicitors. The coincidences are that both calls were made within an hour of e-mailing my VZW cellular phone number through non-private e-mail delivery systems. I have not articulated my VZW cellular phone number to anyone in the past six months except those two e-mails and at the VZW store when I updated my contract. Neither phone call corresponds with my billing cycle nor usage of the phone. Although both calls were roughly mid month, numerically they were separated by six days (18th vs. 12th). Further one phone call was on a Tuesday and the other on a Saturday. While I have not yet found any commonality other than the e-mails I sent, I cannot quite confirm my growing suspicion that these calls relate to internet based sniffers. Has anyone else experienced this kind of coincidence?
Call these people... they provide the phone service to this guy and they can remove your number from his list. I am calling the local PD in his town next to have them pay him a visit.
Freedom Ring Communications, Llc (Bayring Communications)

If your good with coordinates his business is at -71.1400 Longitude & 44.7800 Latitude
I agree with Dude... keep them on the line as long as you can since they are paying for the call. Sound interested even get excited and pretend to walk to your car and read the vin number(just don't really read them the real number).
These clowns ring my cell phone every day. Telling them to remove me does nothing. I've started to fake interest in their warranties to waste their time. If everyone faked interest and wasted their time they'd quit.
I have been getting calls from these people for SEVERAL months. I usually push 2 to be removed from the list, but still have not been removed from the list. As the 3 out of 4 cars at my home are still under warranty (all brand new) and the 4th is 36 years old!!! When I push 1 I am always hung up on. I want these people to stop calling me - it drives me nuts!! Ive been to other boards and found an 888 number, but still am nowhere.
I like to waste their time by pretending to have a new car and being really interested.
Got an automated message when i picked up this phone call. Pressed "1" to speak to a representative to have us removed from the call list. A woman named Renee asked for the make and model of a vehicle. I told her to remove us and she hung up on me.
Great customer service skills. Must be a really awful job!
I get a call from these people at least every other day, and I'm getting really tired of it. Does anyone know the name of the company so I can call them and tell them never to call me again?
Verizon Wireless called asking for a person other then myself....Get this....I have T-Mobile....Never had Verizon
oh and JustynSayne get a life dude haha
We do record all the calls and send you paperwork to sign and return. now since we do renew your agreement we do have to verify that we are speaking with the account holder or an auth. user which is why we ask for ONLY the last 4 of ssn on the account(if you have a password on your account you can use that instead). we already know the last four of your SSN we just need you to verify it(if you dont believe me give the rep the wrong last 4 and see what he/she says). And last for all of ya'll that get a rep. on the phone that gives you attitude or is rude to you well like i said everything is recorded so those people usually dont work there very long. So i think I've covered most of it so i'm done now ya'll can continue on with your conspiracy theories now.
I'm sorry but this all very funny to me. Not the part about ya'll being called repetively that sucks I know and I'm sorry about that but, that's the computers fault so please dont take that out on the reps. However for all of ya'll that are working up this big conspricay theory about this is hilairious to me. I'm going to let ya'll know whats really going on here since I, in fact, have worked for them for about 2yrs now. The people that are calling you are a 3rd party vendor which is why they start off the calls saying "we are calling on BEHALF of VZW". We are a THIRD party vendor we get our business through either Kipany or One Touch Direct. Kipany and One Touch Direct are the ones who get their business directly from Verizon Wireless(which makes them second party vendors). so when you call up customer service and tell them you got a sketchy call from Voicepower or Intel Services chances are they will not know who we are but, if u mention Kipany then they'll know what you're talking about. Its not a scam we are a marketing department dealing with renewal and promotions. We arw calling you because your agreement is about up so we're are offering you either (a) a new plan that will save you money (b) a new phones; 90% of the customers we call the phone is actually no cost to the customer (c) an additional 100 bonus mins or (d) all of the above. However it does renew your agreement. Thats why we call you.
@JustynSayne I don't know if you have been to voicepowered.com but there is now a graphic of a post-it note on the front page that says "A very special thanks to OneTouch Direct & Kipany Productions for making this all possible". You said that verizon does outsource to Kipany Company and OneTouch direct. I wonder what this note on on their website means?
Here are some interesting tidbits I have discovered while in my process of filing legal complaints with Verizon and the FCC today...
Regarding: 1-800-310-5479 / Voice Powered Solutions, LLC.
Phone number from caller id: 1-800-310-5479 (shows up as: Unknown Name)
Company Name: Voice Powered Solutions, LLC.
4025 Tampa Road Suite #1104
Oldsmar, Florida 34677
5519 West Hillsborough Avenue
Tampa, Florida 33634.
Anyway, I spoke with the most polite lady in the world at Verizon Wireless a few minutes ago and she took down all the information I had to offer about this shady company known as Voice Powered Solutions, LLC. She stated that Verizon will not call your home phone regarding information about your wireless plan, UNLESS, your plan is about to expire and that is the only information you provided as a contact. She has a few people checking into this company. She did state that she knows Verizon does infact use 2 outsourced marketing companies called Kipany Company and another called OneTouch Direct, but, VPS,LLC means nothing to Verizon. I found that to be very interesting... So, I proceeded on to file an online complaint, Form 1088, with the FCC while I was on a personal mission to have this VPS, LLC. company shut down for good.
This is an outside marketing vendor for Verizon Wireless. This company, or really annoying person who needs to find a real job, uses a computer dialer, if no one picks up the call, then the computer disconnects and continues to dial another number randomly. Verizon Wireless should removes this person who owns this number from it's all mighty "network".
"Heather from Account Services" calls every day now. THE
FTC WEBSITE TO REPORT ILLEGAL TELEMARKETING CALLS HAS BEEN DOWN FOR OVER A
MONTH. Not that FTC did anything before, you understand. If Congress
people ever answered their own phones or looked at their own e-mail
(spam), they might understand the plague of BS real people have to endure
every day. How much did telemarketers contribute to presidential and
congressional campaigns? Why is "Account Services" allowed to carry on
their illegal business unimpeded? What would happen if YOU violated Federal
law 10,000 times an hour?
I work for intelliservices aka kipany i am very gay i just love the cock
I LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI LOVE KIPANYI
calls every day, twice a day. I just don't answer. but after reading some of these i'm wondering if it someone trying to see if i am home???if it is telemarketing, why would they just hang up or why is there a stupid message. how can this be stopped evidently ncl is not working..
i have selected option "3" to no longer recieve calls and i am still called. when i selected the option to speak to a person, as sooln as i said that this call was in violation of my federal rights they hung up. This needs a class action law suit!!!
Calls almost everyday, but never leaves a message.
i've been getting calls form them for months now. nearly every day, including saturday, sometimes 2-3 times a day. there's no one on the other end if i pick up... they leave messages about twice a week, but i've never called back. i've read many of the comments left here, and i don't have verizon wireless (and never did), i don't have a wamu checking acct., i don't use verizon for my home phone or internet... so i've got no reason i can think of why this company would be calling me.
Call but didn't leave a message.
I think this is a scam outfit...I called Verizon Wireless immediately after receiving this bizarre call and they said they were NOT affiliated with and Voice Power Solutions or Kipany Company. Beware of giving out any personal information to these jerks.
Got a call 3 times from the above number on my cell phone, I called it back from my office phone and it says "Thank You for calling Verizon Wireless, please wait while we connect you to customer service" UGH!
Verizon wireless - they are ALWAYS calling - what a nuisance - never leave a message though
I recently renewed my 2 year contract on the family plan, and yes, we got 3 new phones, too! The VERY NEXT DAY the annoying phone calls started. One rep rudely told me that I just had to endure it until the "next billing cycle" occurred. Right! The other agents I spoke with all assured me that I would be taken off their call lists forever and ever. RIGHT! Before I complained, I was getting one call a day. After filing my complaints, I'm getting 2-3 calls a day. I think I may try and reach that Mr. Dean fellow someone mentioned in a previous post.
Is there anyway we can initiate a class action suit against these a-holes? I get at least two to three calls Monday through Friday. Also, I just bought a new cell-phone two weeks ago, but these fools still call.
I was receiving these calls every day or two for a while. I answered 5 days ago and told them I didn't want the upgrade, and haven't gotten any more calls from them since. However, last night and this morning I received spam text messages to my cell phone, which has never happened before, so I wonder if they are trying to see if the number is legit, then selling our numbers to advertisers for text messaging. Basically forcing us to pay for unsolicited advertising.
Also, does anyone else think "Johny" is trying a little too hard to convince us that these people are legit and we should order their plan. His post sounds like an advertisement, and is obnoxious with all the CAPS.
I just got a hang up call from this number. My 2 yrs is just now up. They did the same thing a few months ago (many hangup calls). When I finally talked to them, yes they are contractors for Verizon trying to get you to renew. I asked about all of the hangup calls and he said the compuer dials the numbers and it dials more numbers than they have reps available for because it figures a certain number of people won't answer, but then if they have "too many" people who do answer, it hangs up on the "extras."
Of course when we got the phone, I had left my driver's license in the car so the phone is in my husband's name. The rep on the phone wouldn't talk to me about the phone plans. I told him we've been through this before and that I should be listed as someone authorized to make decisions but he said he doesn't have that info. He said because of privacy laws he's not allowed to see any of our account information. I'm not sure how he planned to give me a "better deal" if he doesn't know what my current plan is??? I think he must have meant a better deal for Verizon. ;) He told me he'd call back when my husband was home and I told him not to bother. They did call back one more time and I gave them an earful and haven't heard from them since...until just now.
Calls every day, but never leaves a message.
I have received 5-10 calls in the past couple months from these guys, they are a subcontractor to Verizon out of Tampa, Florida. The telemarketers were mostly very rude, they hung up on me or wouldn't let me get a word in edgewise when I told them I didn't wish to receive their calls. I had been asking them not to call me but to no avail. Then lask week I received another call from Lindsey, she was very nice and put her manager, Roger Dean, on the phone when I repeated my request to not be contacted. He was also very nice and promised to put me on their DNC list. I have yet to receive a call from them, so perhaps it worked, you should ask for Roger.
I have been receiving calls from this number. I never answer to 800 numbers. It is Verizon and in fact I do have a Verizon Phone. It must be contract related since my New Every 2 just came up. Know who it is and what it's about. Just don't feel like answering.
i have a verizon cell , no one left a message
HEY GUYS I JUST GOT THE CALL MY SELF A COUPLE WEEKS AGO.... MY MYSELF I THOUGHT IT WAS A SCAM BUT I CALLED COSTUMER SERICE AND THEY TOLD ME THAT THEY WORK FOR KIPPANY.... THEY DO THE RENEWALS FOR VERIZON.. SO I CALLED THEM BACK THEY TOLD ME THEY CAN GIVE ME ONE HUNDRED MINUTES EVERY MOPNTH FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS FOR JUST RENEWING MY CONTRACT.... SO I DID IT... SINCE THEN I HAVE BEEN GETTING 550 MIN FOR THE 39.99 EVERYMONTH.... THIS ISNT A SCAM.... THESE PEOPLE ARE JUST KIND OF A PROMOTIONAL OFFICE.. SINCE I ALREADY USE MY ne2 I CALLED AND THEY GAVE ME THE ONE HUNDRED EXTRA MIN..... I KNOW IT SOUNDS FAKE BUT ITS NOT IT IS NOT A SCAM!!! SO IF ANYONE IS GETTING THE CALL CALL THEM BACK AND LET THEM KNOW YOU WONT THOSE BONUS MINUTES...... IT IS A PROMOTION THEY ARE HAVING... SO YOU SHOPULD TRY IT OUT..... THEY SENT ME PAPERWORK TO SIGN AND RETURN AND I DID IT... THE BONUS MIN WENT THROUGH WITHIN THE NEXT FIVE BUSINESS DAYS..... THEY EVEN RECORD THE CALLS YOU CAN HEAR THE BEEPING....JUST CALL THEY CAN SEND YOU A NEW PHONE FOR FREE OR THE BONUS MINUTES..... IF YOU HAVE THE NE2 CREDIT YOU GET BOTH MIN AND PHONE FOR FREE... GIVE EM CALL AND DONT BE SO ANGRY THERE LEGIT..... SEE YOU GUYS LATER.....
Well the wait is over, they called back today.
Just three (3) days after I called them.
An I was told they would take care of it.
daily phone calls. Aggravating and I don't answer. I do have Verizon and I'm calling them now.
Called the 800 number back and got Verizon Wireless.
They claim to be looking for someone named Carrie. No Carrie here.
I am NOT a Verizon Wireless cust., and told them so.
The lady from Verizon said she would note that my number was a wrong number.
I guess that means I will not get anymore calls from Verizon.
I will wait and see
they call everyday , never answered
They call several times a day and never leave a message or talk when I answer the phone.
No message is ever left, but I have Verizon Wireless. The caller ID is always blank when this number calls. When I called back, all I get is what sounds like a fax machine.
Nearly daily calls. Hang-ups. When I called back finally this morning a message said, "Thank you for you interest in Verizon Wireless" and then hung up. Called Verizon. They don't know what this number is.
I just talked to some one at this company! They are a telemarketing company that gets paid a commission from Verizon Wireless when you renew your agreement with them.
The company is located in Tampa Florida, the name of there organization is:
VOICE POWERED SOLUTIONS LLC
4025 TAMPA ROAD SUITE 1104
OLDSMAR FL 34677
GOODELL, BRYAN E
8610 CHADWICK DRIVE

TAMPA FL 33626
Called Verizon Customer Service @ 1-800-922-0204. Spoke with rep and he put a marketing "block" on my home telephone number from further telemarketers. Definitely understood the situation. Time will tell if this works.
Frequent calls daily, no answer when I pick up.
I have been getting these calls for the past 2 weeks. The caller hangs up when I answer. Today, someone answered and said "thank you for using a Verizon broadband card". Then hung up. What?
I finally called back after getting so many annoying calls from this number. Turns out its Verizon (or maybe a marketing company outsourced by Verizon)!
They want to get me on another 2 year contract. I told them not to call me again and I just want to continue on a month-to-month. If they call me again, I'm switching carriers...
I got called last night at 8:21pm EST and 10:12am EST this morning. I think I may have to call them. I've been getting about 2-3 calls per day.
sigh... another call today at 5:51 pm. this is ridiculous.
They called again today. Wow, that's 3 days in a row now. When is this considered harrassment? Called Verizon customer service yesterday. They said that it must be their marketing department and that they were taking me off the calling list. After getting a call again today at 2:03pm I contacted Verizon customer service again. They said that it can take a couple of days before my number actually gets taken off. I've asked her to esclate this issue to her supervisor and stop the calls immediately. We'll see what happens tomorrow. I may have to contact Verizon's marketing department next.
Its Verizon. They called twice yesterday. I picked up the second time. They wanted me to renew my wireless contract. I told them to send me their offer in writing via email or snail mail so I could review the terms...They called again today. Retards.
I hate these calls.
For those who say this is Verizon, you are wrong. This is 3rd party vendor trying to sell you a contract. I don't know anything about their service but know what you're getting into. I recieved a call with dead air and called back. The person answered the phone said something about "Verizon Wireless" but when I asked, "This is Verizon?" she replied, "Yes, we work with Verizon." If you dial 611 you will be connected with a Verizon represenitive - if not, don't assume anything else. The person asked for my cell number so she said she could figure out why I was called. This is a marketing call. I have reported this to the FTC web site (Federal Trade Commision), as should everyone who recieves this call. Remember...if you make *ANY* CHANGES to your contract, it begins a new term. . . whatever you sigend up for, 1 or 2 years, just starts over from day one (read the fine print). If you entered your # in the DNC registry, make a complaint on the FTC website.
I just called 800-310-5479 and it id'd as verizon wireless and I spoke to a representitive. I informed that all of the people on the do not call list that are listed on the internet "who called" site, will file a class action suit against them. Of course she thumbed her nose at me. We should get together and file a class action. Each violation could be costly.
"Verizon" called to tell me that my contract was up, they knew my plan minutes, and how much I use the cell, said I was eligble for a "reduced" phone, and when I questioned the price, he said "your bill will say $50" for the new phone, so when I asked him to break down the prices for me, turns out I will be BILLED for $100, THEN have a mial in rebate- so NO BUDDY, my BILL will state $100, NOT $50!, Then after all that, turns out I will really be billed for $179, minus the $50 mail in rebate, to total $129, this guy totally couldn't do his math, so I told him I would go to a verizon store and hung up on him.
Same thing - I get 3 calls a day for the past several days. I finally called it back just now and was told they are a third party working for Verizon Wireless. They knew that I had gone over on my text messaging plan and wanted to offer an upgrade. The woman new my name and address just from seeing my number on the caller ID. I asked to be removed from the list.
verizon telemarketing. like i am going to give them any more $ that what they are already bleeding out of me.
No one on the other end. Called back. Company is affiliated with Verizon. They are offering some "deal". Verizon gives them your number. Call it back and tell them you don't want them to call anymore. Also call Verizon and tell them to never share your number with a third party. If you continue to get calls, notify the FCC.
I just started getting these calls, too. Go figure, right after I completed my obligatory 2 years with them after getting my last phone from them. For those that mention the Do Not Call list, they're not held to those restrictions if you're a Verizon customer. Anyone you do business with can call you whether you're on the DNC list or not because you have an existing relationship with them. The best way to get them to stop is for everyone ticked off by their repeated calls to switch to a different carrier, showing them that their relentless marketing is doing them no favors.
Its a gimmick. If a person calls enough you will get annoyed and take matters into your own hands, like you are doing now-getting online, researching the calls, finding out their origin, and then finding a directory of shopping ideas of other websites or related topics then your hooked, then you forget what your there for. A common idea used for this purpose. Seems a little far fetched maybe but not out of possiblities of truth. Marketing can be very simple or complex. This is one of many numbers that are being used for this reason. Just use a callblock and dont let it get out of hand or lose your sanity. Good luck. The are outcalling numbers only. Some will have messages or just disconnect you. Large insurace companies use them a lot. The number is a decoy so you will answer. Some companies use local numbers the same way.
I got the same call and called verizon wireless customer care and they said they have no record of this number and cannot do anything for me.
This number has been calling periodically for weeks, but they never left voice mail. I finally answered to get rid of them.
The person calling was very courteous and explained that she was calling on behalf of Verizon Wireless to see if I am happy with my current cellular plan. I am, in fact a Verizon Wireless customer, but the calls were coming to my non-cellular line.
In response to my direct question, she said that the company she actually worked for was Voice Power Solutions. She offered to take my name off of their list so I would not receive any further calls.
Hi My name is Margarita McManus. I here to set everyone straight about this number my parents had this number changed May of 2006. They aren't telemarketer they can't stand them either they've done everything they can do to get them to quit calling them also. Besides 8 months out the year they are in another state working. I really don't know who is doing this but it needs to stop and if I found out who's doing I will let you know who's doing just as well.
Sincerely, Margarita McManus
this is verizon trying to sell new contracts
It's not WA MU!!I don't do business with them. And it is not Hertz.
I answered and they hung up on me. Called back and it was Verizon Wireless. I asked why Verizon would call me and hang up. Rep didn't know (he just accepts incoming calls - does not make them). He offered to renew my contract but I explained I just did that four days ago. He then offered me a free month of service if I would extend my contract by one week. I accepted.
Spoke with the guy pertaining to my plan & getting 100 free minutes. Sending paperwork in the mail so I can get it. We will see if it's all bs
they call nearly every day, all different times.
When I call this number the guy tells me it's Verizon Wireless trying to renew the wireless contract that is going to expire shortly.
found it it's supposed to be verizon's renewal line. they called to let you know that your contract is about to be up.
This number is a agency calling on behalf of Verizon Wireless. Most likely your contract has expired or your eligible for a new phone and they would like you to sign up for 2 more years.
I answered the phone but no-one responded, so after saying "Hello" several times I hung up.
I am on the do-not-call list, so any more calls and I will call the cops.
This number calls me all the time. I answered once and actually spoke to Verizon, took a survey. I figured once I did the survey they'd stop calling. Enough is enough!
Verizon Wireless looking for someone else, I said wrong number, she apologized and hung up.
"Thank you for you interest in Verizon Wireless. Can I get your mobile number?" Umm, no, you called me.
I am on the DNC registry
but they keep calling???
called telling me of a special deal to get 100 free bonus minutes from verizon hmmm
called me twice so far, left no message on my cingular cell phone ...
Received a call requesting donations for EMTs' and Ambulance Personnel. I am an EMT for the only Ambulance service in our county and we don't solicit donations.
Caller ID says Pensacola, FL. I didn't answer and they left no message.
I just moved into a new place, with a new and unlisted number. My first day here I got a call from this number. I didn't answer. Also got a call from this number as well: 000-000-0000. Obviously didn't answer that one, either. Amazing how they can snag an unlisted number so fast. Very annoying.
Caller hangs up when we answer. ID says AASTFL.
Left no message on answering machine..
This number called my home phone tonight. I use Verizon, and my girlfriend has a Verizon cell phone, so maybe it's them. I don't like to be solicited by telephone, however, so I will let them know.
I receive a number of calls from this place, asked to be removed from their list and got a schmuck reply, then the guys hung up. Darn idiots.
Caller ID said Unknown Name and they didn't leave a message.
Just got a call from these people. Recorded message said it was about lowering my credit card interest rate. Yeah right, I hear ya. Anyhow, I called back 2 minutes later and it's been disconnected. SCAM!!!! Watch out!!
I just got a call from this number. they asked me to renew my calling plan and then ask for the last 4 digits of my SSN and threaten to cancel my plan if I dont provide such info to them.....
Have gotten several pre-recorded messages from "card holder services". Same deal. press 9 to talk to a representative, press 8 to be taken off call list. When I press 8, I get a message saying "this is not a valid response". When I speak to a rep, and tell them to please take me off the list, they hang up. Played along a bit to get some info, first spoke with "Peter Fondue" (yeah, right) and then Renee who hesitantly said they were located in Illinois, then hung up. Scum. Phone ID says "Unkown Number"
Number was on phone.No message left.This is not the first time."Whocalled"list tells me i"m not alone....
Every time I get a call from this "Verizon Wireless," all of the information they have for me is hopelessly out of date. They offer me a new phone when I've just recently upgraded, and they tell me that I am on some antiquated plan (which I am not, anymore). Do these people count on the fact that people don't know a) how much they're paying for phone service? and b) how recently they upgraded their phones?
RECIEVED ANOTHER MESSAGE, AGAIN I FILED A COMPLAINT WITH THE FCC. THIS IS PROBABLY A ID THEFT RING OR SCAM TO GET CREDIT CARD NUMBERS. EVERYONE BEAWARE, DON'T EVER GIVE ANYONE THAT CALLS ANY INFORMATION ABOUT YOU. IF IT'S A CREDIT CARD COMPANY YOU ALREADY DO BUISNESS WITH THEY WILL NOT ASK FOR ANYTHING. MAKE SURE YOU FILE COMPLAINTS WITH THE FCC.
The phone number and name in Caller ID is fake. Go to:
and see for yourself.
They spoof their number & name to any disconnected phone in any State they choose. They will rob you in a minute.
These guys have been calling nonstop for weeks. I don't answer nor do they leave a message.
Everyone, PLEASE take 5 minutes and send the FCC a form 1088 regarding this number. Yes, it's most likely faked/stolen, but they will still investigate and can subpoena call records.
thought this call was from family back home but I don't know the number and no one answers....no msg left on my mach. We are on the do not call list.
If these calls ARE from Verizon AND you are a Verizon customer, they do not have to abide by the Do Not Call List, however, you can ask to be put on their INTERNAL DNC list. They must respect that.
Credit card re-financing. Pressed 1 to speak with someone. Asked operator why they don't check/honor Nat'l Do Not Call Registry. He hung up on me.
No caller ID. Left no message. I am on Do Not Call List.
Definitely verizon wireless (or a marketer for them). They wanted to give me a new phone for "free" and put me on a rate plan with more minutes. Some free phone -also had 2 activation fees - my advice - don't answer the phone!!
2nd call this week about my credit cardso pressed 1 to talk to an "agent". Answered fairly rapidly with "Do you have over $2500 in credit card debt?". I asked "Can you tell me what card this is reference to? Immediately switched me over to another number who didn't know who they were calling so asked for name and phone number. I said I was on the national no call list and wanted to know what card they were calling about so that I could tell my credit card company not to call.
They hung up.
called me 2 times so far this week...no msg.
Caller ID says Pensacola, FL. I missed the call and they didn't leave a message.
Received a call 06/11/2007, some telemarketing recording was left on my machine. Filed complaint with the FCC. ****FILING COMPLAINTS THROUGH THE DO NOT CALL LIST WILL NOT GET YOU ANY WHERE. THEY DO NOT HAVE THE POWER TO FINE OR PROSECUTE PEOPLE, THE FCC DOES AND WILL DO IT. THEY HANDLE ANYTHING THAT DEALS WITH PHONES OR COMMUNICATIONS. I have attached the website to this message. www.fcc.gov
Got call from this number-no message left. Shows up as Florida Call.
I received a call from this number but didn't answer and they left no message. My number is on the DNC list so if someone knows these are telemarketing calls they should be reported.
stop calling my home 631 687-22**. I have reported you to donotcall.gov
annoying calls- STOP
call was a recorded message saying I could lower my interest rate if I was over $2500 in debt. I hung up.
I got a call with the automated message stating the vehicle I'm currently driving is almost up on its warranty. Too bad two vehicles we own are over 12 years old and the other is a brand new HHR we picked up a month ago. I called the number back but it's been disconnected, big surprise.
Caller ID said Florida call with this number. That's all I've got. I'm reporting it to DNC list.
SCAMMER FISHING FOR YOUR INFO, HANG UP OR DON'Y ANSWER!
Picked up the phone and no one answered.
No message left
call id just said Florida
& the number
Since mid May this number calls me every weekday at 10:30 am CDT. Every day it leaves a different message on my answering machine. I think it's a scam & a fraud. One message was from a man with a stern voice who said it was "from card services with an urgent message about my account" and said it was imperative for me to call back as soon as possible. Instead I called the number on the back of the only credit card that I have and they said they never contacted me and my account is fine (I have a $5500 limit but only have $460 balance on the card and make payments every month on time). Another message was from an overly excited young woman who said I won an all expense paid vacation for 2 and needed to call back asap in order to claim the prize. When I saw the same phone number with a different message in a different person's voice, I ignored it. Then there was the message from a man who said he had urgent information to discuss about a family member who was stranded in Florida without any way to get back home to Wisconsin. WTF??!! All my family is right here in WI and nobody has traveled farther than 20 miles to work and back. And it continues. One time I answered the call and it was a recording leaving me a recorded message about a trip I won to Cancun. No way to talk to them unless I call back, which I won't do. I think they are just trying to get credit card numbers so they can make fraudelent charges. Beware, don't give them any info.
Caller ID: PENSECOLA, FL
Number on C/ID: 850-456-1207
when I called back received recorded message,,"we're sorry, your call cannot be completed as dialed" If they can call us, why can't we call them back?? Also,, I ahve been called by this number and when I answered, no one was on the other end,,,, sick of it @!!!
recorded telemarketing call about "your current credit cards"...
I get a call from these people every couple of weeks or so.
No name in caller ID, just number. Reported to FTC at the Do not call list website. You should too. www.donotcall.gov
I answered the call, but no response on their end.
I answered becuase we have friends in Pensacola, it was not them...I was curious so pressed 1 and spoke to a live person offering to consolidate my credit cards...he asked if I had more than $5000 in credit card debt, I said no, he asked if I was sure, I said yes...the call disconnected...how RUDE!!
I basically know how companies like this work. When you go shopping or inside of a department store (for example: Marshalls) and they ask you for your phone number (& if you provide it), this is how companies like this get your phone number. Whether you are on the do not call registry or not (b/c you basically volunteered this info). These automated services call you, not the actual representative so they actually do not have you phone number at all. On their end on the phone, it actually looks like you were the one that called them instead of the automated service. Option number 2 to remove your phone number basically does not work. You can remove your number by immediately telling the representative to remove your number from the do not call log but you will have to provide it and it will be removed in about 2-3 days. It's just like e-mail spam, if you just delete it you'll have more in your inbox the next day but if you unsubscribe from their site they stop after a few days. Take it from an insider trust me it works, hanging up does not help - the automated service just calls you back at a later date. Try not to be so mean (I know the calls are annoying) these people are just doing their jobs, which is not fun in the first place. They basically mislead us about the content, pay and requirements of the job and that's why I will be quitting and looking for another by the end of the week and reporting them to the BBB and the U.S. Dept. of Labor. Receptionist job my a&*.
Have a great day
Vehicle warranty telemarketing sales.
Called early Saturday morning, but no one on the line.
I have been getting this same phone call now for the past 4 weeks, although it shows a different phone number on caller ID. This time it was a automated call that said this is ‘Consumer Services’ that I needto update my credit card rates. That I need to act now by pressing 1. This was my last chance. I did some research on the phone number it is a discontinued number for a Pensacola, FL business thereby making any complaint useless. Last week it was a Fort Lauderdale, Fl discontinued number again making any complaints useless.
called Id said Pensacola Florida-no message left but when I redialed it said this number was disconnected. Number displayed was 850-456-1207 3:03 pm.
received calls from this number 850-456-1207. Don't know who it is so I didn't answer the calls.
It's a recording about lowering an interest rate on credit card debt. I push "1" to speak with a live person and then the phone disconnects me after a few moments. I'm like a dog with a bone, I will be getting to the bottom of this! : )
returned call.claims its a charity for florida troopers. gives 800-463-2924 (option 9) to remove from further calls..dunno if it will work..good luck
Got a call today from this number....funny thing is I got a call yesterday from 954-689-7681 with the same sales pitch about reducing credit card interst rates....this is a SCAM do not press 9 to remove your name...they aren't removing it....
Caller ID said Pensacola, FL. Did not answer. I am on the Do Not Call list. I guess that doesn't really work.
Verizon renewal service
Called at 10:00 am.
Did not leave a message.
When I called the number right back, it said that it had been disconnected.
Pensacola,FL 850-456-1207 on caller id...didn't answer...no message left...they hung up
(850)456-1207 is a disconnected number, so they are not calling from there. These tricksters are obviously faking the caller ID information so that the origin of their calls cannot be detected. This is called "caller ID spoofing," and it is becoming popular (look it up on wikipedia.)
Ignore the caller ID information. Martin McManus is probably a victim in this too. Imagine the number of people who are calling. He has probably been forced to change his number.
I am on the Do Not Call list. When they called me, it was about credit card interest rates, but they seem to calling others with a variety of pitches. This is illegal telemarketing calls at a minimum, but it could be worse - a scam to get you to reveal your information over the phone so that your identity can be stolen.
Caller ID said Pensacola, FL. Answered on second ring. Fast-talking woman (recording?) talked about reducing indebtedness; refinancing; some such thing. Asked to wait to speak with a representative; no one came on the phone and was eventually disconnected. Called number back 2X; recording says number is discontinued/disconnected. Google search indicates number is for Martin McManus.
I didn't answer, no message left.
No message left.
I tried to call the number back, but I got a "phone number is no longer in service or has been disconnected" message from the operator.
tried to call number back says disconnected or no longer in service
Lets Repost that, I didnt answer it and when i called it back it said no such number.
Called at 12:45 and left no message.
Same thing as many others have said did answer it then i called it back on the cell said it was disconnected. Stupid...
i had this message and when i called back it said out of service
get calls all the time. let my machune pick up. what is most annoying is that it leaves a busy tone that takes up about 5 minutes of my machine.
also long recorded intro, press 1 to speak to live operator, you must want to consolidate your credit card debt which must be > $5K. "we have an agreement with all the major credit cards". When I informed the operator that I'm on the do not call list I heard typing in the background and got cut off.
"Urgent" call about my credit card. "Very important" that I call back right away.
Trying to trick me into thinking that they are calling from my credit card company. Bastards. Should be illegal. Oh that's right, it is. Double bastards.
Precorded message from Lisa with Cancun Vacation Center. Caller ID showed came from Pensecola FL
Answered just as answering machine picked up call. Caller hung up. Caller I.D. number. Called Number less than a minute later and got messaage that I reached a number that had been disconnected.
I got a call from this number, they left no message. When I called it back it said that it was no longer in service. I'm on the Do not Call list!! How does this happen?
I recieved a call from 850-456-1207 and they were selling vacations in Cancun, Orlando, FL and Daytona, FL.
call as mc manus , martin no answer
Second time they called. I am on the do not call list and my number is unlisted. When I try to tell them I'm on the DNC list, they hang up immediately. The message claims I have credit card debt of $2000 and I must talk to them immediately. I am debt free. This time I got a name and an address: Card Holder, PO Box State Row 7, Pensacola, Fl. When I asked for the zip code, she wouldn't give it me. Asked if I was $50,000 in credit card debt. I said no, she hung up. Have reported them to the DNC list twice.
Received call from this number. 3 rings, no message. We are on the National No-Call List. This outfit is in federal violation.
Definitely not interested.
Caller ID: unknown
Number on ID: 850-456-1207
Did not answer - do not answer calls that I do not know the number if unidentified.
Will be reporting to DNC List
I keep getting calls from this number and it always hangs up when I answer the phone.
I've been getting calls from Pensacola, FL at least once a week if not more for over two months. Don't answer calls, and they usually don't leave a message ubt if they do its some credit card scam or auto warranty scam. Just moved to new address in March and my Do not call for state and federal does not go into effect until July.
I'm starting to think like Scott too. I'm now getting repeatted calls from 1-800-261-1646. No messages. Probably the same people.
Cuts into message on ans mach. Final offer for low interest rate. Dunno what kind of loan they're referring to. Says press 1 to hear this special offer or 2 to be removed. 2nd call in a week. Reporting them to Do Not Call website.
Showed up Pensacola, Fl on caller ID. I wasn't home. They left no message!
Called me twice. I didn't answer. Says NO CALLER ID when calling - number shown only.
These people have called repeatedly daily for weeks. I finally picked up and told her we're on the National Do Not Call List. She said "I'll let you talk to my supervisor"!!! I asked if she was crazy and told her to take our number off their list and not to call even one more time.
850-456-1207 reported disconnected. Based on another post here, I called 800-831-7668, spoke to manager Chris. When confronted with the 850-456-1207 number he didn't disagree. He said a nonprofit organization was making the calls:
346 Fair Oaks St.
San Francisco, CA 94146
He refused to give me their number.
was on my Caller ID
googled comes up Martin McManus. Caller ID reads Florida.
Caller ID says Credit Rate Off, they left a ludicrous offer for a $99 Florida trip on my answering machine.
have received several calls from this number. it registered pensacola, fl. - no message.
Got a call from this # today @ 11:48 a.m. Don't know this number, didn't answer, didn't leave a message.
calls several times a day, never leaves a message on my machine. When I answer, it's like there is an open line in an office.
Financial services message. Crappy junk call. Didn't answer. I'm on the no call list.
Don't bother to answer calls from this number.
Caller ID said "Pensacola, FL"; recording said it was CardMember Services and that everything was okay with my account, but they needed to talk to me about consoldating my debt. The first time they called, I pressed the button for "do not call again." Second time, I pressed "1" for speak to an operator about consolidating my debt. Operator asked me if I pressed "1" so I could consolodate my debt. I asked what company she was with - Cardmember Services (with whom we do have an account). I said that they were not supposed to solicit from me, and she hung up immediately.
They called at 1:40 PM EST and I didn't answer. They didn't leave a message and when I called back, I get a message saying "we're sorry. you have reached a number that has been disconnected or is no longer in service". I think it's like spoofing email addresses. They just pull dead numbers to put in the caller ID so no one can trace the calls back to the telemarketers/scammers.
My caller id identified the caller as "AASTFL". It is "The American Association of State Troopers of Florida". This is a BS outfit not affiliated with the State or the Police. I told the guy to stop calling. He then called from his cell phone 305-437-9935 and started to cuss me out. What an idiot. When you call him back he answers the phone a "Xentel". www.xentel.com
I called the main number for the group 1-800-463-2924 and made a complaint.
Automated voice call identifying themselves as Cardholder Services. I hung up and didn't hear all the recorded message.
Caller ID Pensacola, FL. Did not answer, no message left by caller.
They said something about Cancun. I didn't think and hung up. I am on the Do Not Call List.
This number calls our house at LEAST 3 times a day. My husband works a 3rd shift job, so while I'm at work, it wakes him up every time. We have answered and gotten hung up on, and once in a while they don't hang up when the answering machine picks up, all you here is office noise in the background. You get nothing when you call back. It's really annoying. We are actually going to change our number, and this is one of the reasons why.
Card Holder Services
Called at 2:11pm EST
Registered as Unknown Name on callerID.
Long automated message about being selected for Credit Card consoladation and press 1 to talk to live rep. Once rep came on, I asked if "Card Holder Services" was there official company name. She ignored me and asked if I had $5,000 or more in debt. When I said answer my question first, she hung up. Tried to call the number back and came up as a disconnected number.
I am on the DNC registry and reporting them now.
