I am just so fed up with these callers that hang up! I dialed *66 to get the number and called it. It was an automated voice mail...I left a very irate message telling them to take me off the list or I would report them for harassment! Someone needs to put these idiots out of business!

April 2nd, 2009 Patty CO

Not home, no message left, Display said GRANTS, received to our denver phone number 3-31-09. with caller ID, don't pick up!

These people keep calling my business and when we answer they hang up, we even tried calling them back and it's like a dead computer picks up and there is nobody there.

My business has been targeted twice recently by what I suspect to be 419 scammers, they sent out several hundred $3000.00 checks to people all over the United States using my busines name, address and even had the account number correct... Was a real mess, but these people receiving the checks all tried to cash them or in many cases deposited in their own accounts before wiring $2500.00 back to the scammers as they were instructed to do... Yes this really happened. And yes people in out society are this stupid:( But both times this happened we would receive several phone calls from scammers claiming to be AT&T or a directory service calling to verify our company information... Of course we are rude to then and tell them nothing but the very next day all of these bogus checks arrived all over the place using stolen FedEx account numbers...

Caller ID as you know can be spoofed so easily,I can get a Vonage account and make you think I am in London even if I am in Nigeria...so caller ID is part of the bigger problem here

As I was typing this another call came in on my home line listed as GRANTS, of course they hung up when I answered....

October 7th, 2008 sslady77575

They never leave a message and I'm on the do not call list as if that would do you any good.

The Grant People Located in Las Vegas

I retained the Grant People, Inc. before known as the Grant People of America in September 2006 to write grants for new Business.

They get very angry whenever you question them, This company is a fraud and should be looked into so that people can get a refund for any monies paid to them

Research RIP OFF Report.

Spencer Hamilton tells you that they fund funding but you hear from him or the company unless you give them more money. Maybe they do get the funding and they keep it.


If you feel you have been wronged please contact the FTC. We can band together and file a class action.

I get 5-6 calls a day from this number (213-533-8042). They often call then call back again in less then a minute. I don't answer.

June 11th, 2008 fed up CA

four missed calles from this message. didn't leave a message....will not call back.

June 11th, 2008 karen NM

this is a recorded message to try to get you to move credit card debt somewhere else. As soon as you select option "2" to be removed no matter where in the call you press "2", it auto-disconnects and does NOT say it will remove you from the calling lsit ------and it obviously does not since I get these calls all the time from the same number

June 11th, 2008 mike WV

Called me noise audio for 10 secconds then started with a recording that was fuzzy. Then it disconnected during the message.

June 10th, 2008 Tim

May 11th, 2008 Lola CA

Let them give me their spiel then asked why they were calling me on Sunday, which is Mother's Day no less. Then told them I was on the Do Not Call list and asked why they are calling me and she said Have a good day, good bye (woman with accent)

So frustrating!

March 13th, 2008 Roberta Sanford

I have hired them to obtain a grant for our business, it has been 1 1/2 and still no money, all they want from me is money and then tell me the grant will be funded by end of the month that was 5 months ago, A man by the name of Spencer Hamilton and his associate ,Patricia , a Victor Vargas no one returns calls, if you speak to Victor he gets very mad saying the paperwork is not done whenI have been told it was going to fund???? Funny thing I think it's a scam and all they wanted was money to keep you going, maybe I should go to Vegas and see them in person and blow their funking heads off.

These people have called my personal cell phone 3 days in a row. When I try to return their calls to tell them not to call me, it always says their mailbox is full. I am on a "do not call " list and I'm positive I have no business with them. Going to complain to every agency I can. I consider this harassment.

This company calls several times a week and always asks for the same person. I tell her he no longer works here and she still calls back! They are relentless.

The first time they called it was 10 pm, they woke us up, they hung up. The second, hang up... the third, last night, I didn't even give the girl a chance to talk to me. I told her this was the third time they called, I didn't care what she was selling or what she wanted of me, but that if she called back again that I was going to call the police. We'll see if that got me anywhere. I too am on the DNC list.

January 29th, 2008 Priceless VA

I've assigned the name Spam to this number so I don't waste any energy on it. Sometimes it calls five times a day and no one ever answers.

January 29th, 2008 John GA

If you are not registered on "Do Not Call" register. Then in 30 days you can filed a complaint. If you are registered, file a complaint. It is really simple, even for some of you!!!!

January 25th, 2008 Fetrow

They call a lot, and I don't know why. I have them blocked and all they get is a busy signal. You would think they would get the message.

January 23rd, 2008 Eileen ND

This company calls our place of business a few times a day and it is very annoying to get this hang up telemarketing calls at work.

January 19th, 2008 Jim IL

Please make them stop!!

January 17th, 2008 kjc

This number keeps coming up on my cell phone and no one leaves a message on my voicemail. I refuse to answer it until I know who it is that is calling.

January 17th, 2008 KimJ

They called last night. The lady asked for me in a heavy accent and told me she was calling about the application I filled out to make money from google. They would create a web site for me and their "team" would come up with keywords. They would get my site listed with google and everytime someone searched for one of my keywords they would get my site and the money would roll in. Everything I needed was free; all I needed to do was pay the shipping and handling, $1.95. I said, "This is delivered COD?"
"No Miss Kim, you will need to pay the postage up front. You can give me your credit card information and I will take care of that now."
"How did you get my number?"
"You filled out a form on the internet to make money working for google."
"No, I haven't filled out any form. So does this mean that you work for google and you're recruiting me?"
"No miss Kim. We show you how to make money from google. If you'll give me your credit card information, I'll get your package out to you."
"Listen, I work online for a little company that you may have heard of ... it's called The New York Times. I know for a fact that I didn't fill out any form online or anywhere else to make money working with google and I never, and I repeat NEVER give out my credit card information to random people on the telephone. But I'll tell you what; if you want to tell me more about how you're using the google name to rip people off, I'll be happy to refer this information to someone at the Times who writes about interent scams and fraud."

how do you stop these people?

January 16th, 2008 Mckenna Long DC

they call several times a day. this is not a residence, this is a law library. when you do answer they hang-up, so I cannot tell them to put this number on the do not call list.

January 15th, 2008 SM WA

I received eight phone calls in the last three days. 98% hang ups, 2% say hello and then hang up.

January 14th, 2008 fetrow

Calls, doesn't leave message. I blocked their calls.

January 14th, 2008 keller NY

i am thinking that they are connected to another trainwreck nightmare, the MONEY RESOURCE NETWORK. I attended a MRN seminar, and from that point on, have received these 213-533 8042 calls. MRN is a Vegas based operation/ possible Utah one... Even when you send a certified letter to cancel their service, they continue to bill your credit card. I had to cancel the card...I have notified all attorney generals involved. but i now get impossible numbers of emails, and this annoying call from glob/int. Thank god for cid, i just pick up and drop the receiver. will try donotcall again too...

January 12th, 2008 ROBERT

January 11th, 2008 Diane FL

January 11th, 2008 CHRISTINE

January 11th, 2008 Talking to air MN

Usually you get a weird number calls, you answer and talk to the air. Now that really pisses a person off. Then I received a phone call about a business kit I signed up online for. I was rolling on the floor when they told me who they were. Its Ebay and they are verifying my shipping information but what it costs $.99 to send it and i can use any type of payment. Of course what do you usually use for paying for your items "PAYPAL". Then the guy preceded to give me run around about paying the shipping fees. I told him that I wanted to use my paypal and he kept asking for card #'s and i said sorry but you are not ebay and he hung on me. LLLLOOOOLLLL! These people never give up do they!

January 11th, 2008 Jeff SC

January 11th, 2008 Lora

Several calls at differnt times of day. I wish they would stop

January 10th, 2008 Ginger Parker

They never leave any message when you're not at home so you know what they are calling about so your can return their call. They call me 2-3 times a day and I don't know who they are.

January 10th, 2008 Louisiana home NM

Caller ID shows Globalreach Int. 213-533-8042. Calls about 5 times a day and when I pick up, the line is blank. Noone says anything. Tried to google the company comes back with a marketing company and a long distance phone company. Called the 800 listed for the long distance company and all I get is "phone busters leave a message" with a beep. This is getting crazy. They have been calling me now for weeks.

January 10th, 2008 jessica NY

January 10th, 2008 Scott Cobb

To Whom it may concern : please stop calling my phone number you are getting on my nerves , because you dont answer when i talk

January 10th, 2008 Frost

These arseholes call my cell phone up to 3 times every day. This same thing happened to me a few months ago with a similar #..and the only way to get them to stop calling is answer the phone when they call and say no to whatever they were asking about (last time it was for some kind of mortgage offer) and they don't call back after that. Only problem is, the one time I answered-no one came on the line when I said hello, so they continue to call back

January 9th, 2008 Jennifer AZ

This number calls my classroom several times a week and left 14 messages without any message over a two week period. I try to call the number back and it is busy.

January 9th, 2008 K Adams VA

January 9th, 2008 handyman MA

They call every night between 5 and 6 pm. It rings twice and then hangs up. The number they are calling is my business cell phone. Is that legal to do telemarketing to cell phones?

January 9th, 2008 Mainah ME

Looks like GlobalReach Int is a phone/VoIP gateway company. I got a call from them this afternoon and it was a person from Dell customer service (from India....why?) reminding me of an order status. Basically if you answer this call, do not expect to hear plain, clearly spoken English language,

January 9th, 2008 Fetrow

Caller ID showed GLOBALREACH INT. Phoned back and can only get busy signal. I blocked their number.

You guys are nuts! And who is the jackass? You are signing up on line for information on working from home and you are recieving these calls because of it! If you think you can put your name and telephone number on an online form and not get phone calls....HELLO! Now....if people would just give you the courtesy of telling you that, you wouldn't have to waste your time trying to find out who keeps calling you!

January 8th, 2008 Kristi again UT

Yea, you know why they are always busy? Because they are calling all of us, and who knows who else all day long. Their phones don't have a break in all of their harassment.

January 8th, 2008 Kristi UT

Calls every 20 minutes for the last 3 weeks starting at around 6:00 pm to 10:30 pm. Finally answered to tell them to quit calling, but no one ever, ever talks. Finally stopped answering. It is very annoying, especially when I have young children in bed.

January 8th, 2008 smooth OH

what a ass calling us alot

January 8th, 2008 smooth talker OH

just the number no answer how to stop it

January 8th, 2008 tired OH

Jerks called every hour at the exact same time for 5 hours. I called the number back only to get a busy signal. The last time they called they got quite an ear full of what I thought. I hope they answer the next time they decide to call probably in about 45 minutes. Someone should get the calls traced and have charges pressed for harrassment.

January 7th, 2008 nancy lee TX

calls but no message left. I do not answer but they have called so many times. Please stop them if possible.

January 7th, 2008 gloria TX

January 3rd, 2008 Dave

This company/person is driving me nuts! They keep calling and calling and calling despite my requests to be taken off their calling lists. They always ask for someone who doesn't live at my home and are rude when I ask who they are/where they are calling from..... Usually they just hang up on me.

January 3rd, 2008 Jeff NE

Yeah, He keeps calling us & all phone numbers listed down the line are disconnected or non-working except for 702-877-2420 which is an answering machine. Yesterday you could tell there was a second party on the line & when I asked to have a DNC request honored, they cranked up some music over the phone line so I just hung up. He needs to have his ass thrown back in jail!

January 3rd, 2008 Johnnie Hensley TN

Obviously AL QUITE-A OR Tallywuss calling.I have received so many calls it is re-DICK-LESS.Say something hellish in the phone they are recording and when you say it don't be a wuss and embarrass the whole USA.Why not show some guts and answer INFIDEL HEADQUARTERS, and tell them what you think of their savage hearts,call them DEVILS, TELL THEM their not human, say whatever, they are recording you. MAN-UP WUSSY'S ! Stop thinking oh it a prank, it's a tele marketing scheme while these monsters and evil doers laugh at YOU . THINK OUT OF THE BOX YOU LIVE IN. Wake_UP and smell the stench. That's not a busy signal when you call back, it' the buzzing of flies . Your caller I.D. is being controlled.Telemarketing is torture but this is not telemarketing,IT'S TORTURE FROM OUR STUPID, EVIL, LOW CLASS, ROTTEN ENEMIES. STOP saying I'm gonna do this, I'm gonna do that-JUST DO IT.

harassing, disturbing calls. Any legitimate company should be required to show their ID!!!

January 3rd, 2008 not shane NJ

Everytime they call they ask for the same person, it's always shane...when you tell them that there is no one here by that name, they get annoyed. Eachtime they call we tell them not to call back, but guess what!?!? Everyday, they call back.

December 29th, 2007 DJA

These jerks are persistent and have been calling many times a day, but we let the machine pick it up. There was never a message left. Finally I picked up and the want to speak to the business owner. Sounded fishy. Something about an ad and they wanted to verify my information and send me out something in the mail. I hung up on the idiots.

December 20th, 2007 M. A. KY

These people call at least two or more times a week. Always call when I am at work. My husband just happened to be home to answer one day wanted to speak directly to me. I was asked to call Benard between the hours of 8:00 and 4:00. They won't leave a message or tell what their business is.

December 19th, 2007 Ashley

This number called me twice 10 minutes apart. The first time i answered no one said anything but it sounded like a party in the back ground. The second time i let it ring for the answeringachine but they left no message. Then i looked up the area code in the phone book and it said that it was from down town LA/ Hollywood. who is this and I'm thinking its some identy theft person or a damn tella marketer.

December 19th, 2007 Heather AL

They will not stop calling me! They call on my cell and my land line. When I answer nothing. They are leaving me voice mail say, hello, hello, heelloo. I do not know who this is but when I try to call them back it is always busy.

December 19th, 2007 S. Redding MI

They call 6-10 times a day, at all hours. I do not answer calls from unknown #s. I am on do not call list and I am going to report them, if this continues

December 18th, 2007 Larry Burke IL

Received a call from someone claiming to be from the government grant office

December 18th, 2007 TR CA

I'm a stay-at-home mom and a housewife of a marine. Saying that we have financial problems out the @$$ because he's a lower rank and we live in california. I first received this call somewhere between 12/13-12/15 2007. The lady told me I was eligible for a government grant of a minimum amount of $10,000. I told her I did not sign up for a grant of any kind. She told me it was a great way to go back to school on. I said, "Yeah, like I have the fucking time. What am I supposed to do? Pull it out of my ass?" I don't think so. Saturday or Sunday I got a call from this number again and this time I spoke to some guy. I never regretted turning down the grant when he told me I sounded like the girl from some porn site with the same name as me. Now a few people might have the same first and last name as me, but I didn't think it was that common in the porn industry (or maybe I'm mistaken). Anyway, I told him no and that the thing I might be known for would not be in the acting field at all. My husband tried to look up the number on his recall roster for his shop before I told him all this (because he got some calls from this number but they hung up). He was thinking it was his 1st Sgt.'s number. We're trying to get to the bottom of this, and believe me, I'm not the ordinary woman to piss off. I actually go after people. Ask the drunk driver what happened to him after he hit my son and I earlier this year and tried to run. I don't f-ing think so.

December 18th, 2007 Annoyed Mamma FL

This is the 3rd call from this number. There is no identifying caller ID. The person calling has an Asian accent (maybe Filipino or Chinese) and asks to speak to my husband about government grants. The voice sounds the same as the last calls. This is the third time she called my cell phone -- this time today at 9:39 am EST. After the 2nd call last week, I googled the number and found that the company is owned by a Las Vegas scammer called Sherbody.

I just told her to stop calling; that I know she is affiliated with Sherbody in Las Vegas; that my phone is on the NATIONAL DO NOT CALL LIST; and I hung up. Hopefully, this will stop the calls.

So annoying, I have received three phone calls just tonight, the most recent one a few minutes ago at 9:29pm. Never a person on the other end. No name on CID, always busy when I try to call back.
Sounds like there is a history here.

These people keep calling my house when I am at work. My husband and mother have explained to them that I am work and do not call back. These people call back at the most inconveient times, mainly when my seven month old son is asleep so of course the phone wakes him up and then he will not go back to sleep. PLEASE QUIT CALLING!!!!!!!!

Another site found a toll free # to call which I did about a month ago.
I told them all my #s and to put them on their DO NOT CALL list
They said they would
That # no longer is valid and another # on a site had another toll free but it goes to a 'full' voice mail box.

I recieved a call from 213-533-8042 saying that they are with the US Grant Funding to where I am entitled to free government money and that I need to pay a small s&h fee. How ever I didn't give them any info and I never signed up for any grants. Is there a way this number can be blocked from my phone? And how did they ever get my phone number?

I revieve these calls everyday al least six times a day, When I answer they hangup on me but today I finally got a person on the phone. She ask for my Husband and I told her he was asleep and ask her what this call was about. She ask me if I was his wife and I said yes and she said that he but in for a goverment grant and this was what it was about and gave me a phone number for him to call back, ( 213- 452-6539 ) I took the information and hung up. SO should we call them on this or just let it be and see if they call us back? Can someone help us out on this matter? This is the first time we finally talk to a person and we did put in for a goverment grant. I read that this number is maybe a scam so I am a little scared to do anything with this. Asking gor help!!!

December 5th, 2007 Jarod LaBarge OK

The number was not 213-452-6539, but had the same area code. They told me they were Raven Media Incorporation (Government Grant givers). They said they had a CD Rom to send me for information about them. There a small fee for shipping and handling of $1.95. They needed my credit card for that one and I stupidly gave it to them. Maybe they are who they said they are, but it's been a week or so and I haven't received anything from them through the mail. There costumer service number they gave me isn't even the right one. It's some radio stations number or some audio company.
Who are these people?! They had accents and things just didn't seem right when talking with them. They told me there was no risk and they said they had this fraud protection or something of the sort. Um, anyway about the credit card thing..., they said I have 14 days to cancel my account before they start charging me $30 some bucks a month for having it. I'll never trust an unknown foreigner over the phone again! OH, THEIR NUMBER...? It was 213-533-8042.
WILL SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP ME???!

To Whom It May Concern

INT GLOBALREACH Phone 213-533-8042 has called my cell phone several times in the past two weeks. When I answer they don't say anything and just hang up. I have heard talking in the background. They do have foreign accents. I am sure there are a lot of other people in the same situation as me. I have spent 60.00 to find out who these people are and I will have to wait until next week to get the details.

If you Google this company INT GLOBALREACH or the 213-533-8042 you will see a lot of other people complaining about it. Please help me shut these people down and lock them up. Please mail me the key. I consider this a HOMELAND Security issue.

Best regards

Blaine

December 1st, 2007 Larry MIres WA

I have been getting between 5 and 10 calls from this number every day now for the past few weeks. I did a reverse lookup and discovered it was a company on the Pac Bell (now AT&T) carrier network called Globalreach Int. When I try to call this number back all I get is a busy signal. In the past three weeks this nuisance calling has cost me over 100 minutes on my cell phone. When I called my carrier (AT&T) they said they can't do anything about it and there is no call-blocking service for cell phones. There has to be some way to stop whoever this is. I'm getting calls at all hours of the morning and day. It's driving me nuts.

December 1st, 2007 Melinda CO

They call every 15 minutes!!! Up until 10:00 at night and then it starts all over the next day!

December 1st, 2007 Nichole

I receive 2-3 calls everyday from these people. I screen my calls, so if I don't recognize the number I don't answer. They do not leave a message. When I finally did call them back today, I got a busy signal. Decided to type it into google to see if it was a business or something and I found quite a few websites with this number and the same problems as everyone else!

November 30th, 2007 R

This damn place called my home and cell #'s a million times a day (it seems) and this is every day, Monday through Sunday. We have gotten to where we don't even get up when the phone rings and no- one ever leaves a message!!

November 30th, 2007 No Name CO

They call me 2-3 times a day. This morning (11/29) they called me at 6:58 AM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I didn't answer but it's really getting annoying

November 30th, 2007 Amy

We received multiple calls daily from Global Reach International 213-533-8042. At first we hung up when it seemed there was no one on the phone. Then we started to ignore the calls thinking they would stop. Being fed up, I finally answered the phone and just sat there. Finally someone said hello. She asked for my father, and when I told her he was not here, she said, "Well, ok, I'll have to keep calling back." I told her we are on the do not call list and she said no we were not because if we were, we would not be on her list. So I began asking questions. Her name is Phyllis, and the company is in Nevada and she was supposedly calling to offer my dad government funding. She asked why I wanted to know, and I told that I was going to submit another complaint with the Texas Public Utility Commission, that the first complaint all I could submit was the telephone number off the caller id. She said that it sounded like I wanted our number taken off her list, and I said, "Really Phyllis, do you think so?". I asked her for her supervisor's name and the office phone number. She asked why I wanted to know, she paused and said 'ok' like she was talking to someone there with her, and then told me, that she took our number off the list. I told her that she needs to make very sure that our number does not get on the list again. She seemed very glad to get off the phone. We'll see if the calls stop.

November 26th, 2007 Philip

THEY ARE A COLLECTION AGENCY! They buy OLD debt for pennies on the dollar and recylce it. When I say 'OLD DEBT' - I mean OLD DEBT. They are what we call a "Gorilla" agency. Just when you forgot about that old invoice from whomever, people like this come along. You THINK it's a telemarketing call; -- IT'S NOT! DON'T ACKNOWLEDGE ANYTHING! Just say they must have the wrong number, and hang-up.

Got a call from them today, on my cell phone. I've had problems with these types of calls before, but if you get a real live person, I've found how to fix it. Just answer as a law firm. =)

November 22nd, 2007 Matt AZ

This number has been calling me for weeks. I've tried to get help from Qwest and the police, but no one there has any useful suggestions. Qwest is able to block some phone numbers, but not all. I'm going to try it and hope that it works. I have a feeling that since it seems to be a fake number, it won't work. But here's hoping...

November 21st, 2007 rcmeek UT

Last message would not allow me to post this information to hopefully help someone out there!!!

Anyone being harrassed with Collection Agencies, bugging for payments? 1 - do NOT Set up any kind of payment plan 2 - Tell them you " Do NOT discuss financial matters by phone, unless you make the call. Family rule. Be Blunt, they are and will be. 3 - Collection Agencies are 3rd
party Debt Collectors. You owe original Creditors, not Collection Agencies, this is per FEDERAL Laws. (Fair Debt Collection practices Act!)

Google, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, online Attorney's sometimes have sample letters you CAN Use - to send these bulley's. If you tell them
to go away, they have to comply. No, they can NOT give you a Negative Credit Report for using your Law Given Rights!!!

I am not an Attorney, I am not giving Legal Advice. I am just sharing my experience and knowledge I have learned. We need to Educate ourselves, to
avoid being victims and targets!!!

Hope this information helps someone!!!

November 21st, 2007 rcmeek UT

If you are on the donotcall.gov list, file a complaint!!! Enough complaints filed, FTC will investigate and prosecute!!!
Also file an FTC complaint - www.ftc.gov, same as above!

Others have tried filing complaints with FCC, with no luck. It's worth trying my idea.
After you do that - you can pick the phone up, and blow a whistle in their ears
Hand the phone to a small child, and ask them if they want to talk
Tell them just a minute, and put the phone down, till they hang up.

Businesses are a tougher matter with time, costs and employees. Allow your employees to use the whistle technique. Once or twice of that should give them a loud, clear message!
