greatfallsmt calls from 2 phone numbers:
The last week or so, I've been getting hard line auto warranty scam calls 1 - 2 times a day that can't be traced with *69. I stopped answering my phone after #2 b/c I know they'll be calling for the next few months, at least, if they get another pick up. It now rings only about 3 times, but never has left a message. THEN, my CELL phone got a call yesterday AND today from two different unknown numbers... which I didn't answer. Since that timing was very odd, I looked both numbers up online (406-454-8977 and 802-287-9997) and each has: (1) a "real person" name attached (different names) AND (2) complaints about Car Warranty harassment calls. The complaints for the 802 code (Vermont) is much shorter, so maybe it's just the latest hijacked phone number. Obviously this crook can use anybody's phone number for his caller I.D. via part of the harassment driven via computer program, but without Caller I.D., when you dial *69 it can't be traced. My hard line & cell phones are with two different companies. Recently, though, I heard someone on a TV news show explain that these Car Warranty scam calls are coming up with phone numbers randomly, via computer program, and the poor saps who give them their money, don't get any and/or get just token coverage when they have their car serviced.
Got called from this number on Mar 26 and i called back but it was disconnected
Received unk call from thus (406) # registered to Scott A Heldt of Great Falls MT and I live in TX ??(i did not answer)
Call came in at 5:52pm atlantic time, Thursday March 27,2008.eastern canada. I called back and mmessage says "disconnected."
They represent that my auto warranty is expired or going to expire and if I don't extend through them I will not be able to extend it. I told them mine does not expire for two more years and they were lying and they hung up on me. Can't delete my number because when you call it back it says the number is disconnected.
recorded message said "...car [extended?] warranty about to expire" "this is 2nd notice" "final call"
"press 2 to close this file, 1 to speak to a sales associate"
I pressed 2 and they disconnected.
The call came in today on my cell phone at 10:46a, in the 352 area code (Florida).
This jerk started calling my cel yesterday. I reported him at that FCC link. I'm guessing that the little weasel has a line that's set to only allow outgoing calls, so pissed off people can't call him. I had the number in Georgia try a few times too.
I am reporting the number. We are on a no call list There should be a fine.
I received the call at 11:07 am yesterday 3/26/08 on my cell, weirdess thing is that I believe the same number came in my work phone hours later when I glanced really quick I was able to see a 406 area code and ended 13 this being the call that came in my work phone.
I also tried to call it back in the evening and it said the number is not in service I am in the sunshine state.
It is really aggrivating what can we do ?
we must all have something in common do we all have Verizon as a provider?
Maybe th annoyance bureau
they call my work all the time, 2-3 times a day, but now all of a sudden they are calling my cell phone! FLORIDA
This phone number is supposedly tied to this person in Montana
Heldt, Scott A
Yup, I have received the same calls. I do not bother to answer.
This number called me 2 times on my cell phone during a meeting. It was very annoying.
when I got this call I thought it was just a wrong number, but then when I googled it to see if it was costing me that I got this call, I found this whole group of people with the same problem. Is something going on here?
telemarketer with a recording trying to sell me an extended warranty on my vehicle. I pressed 1 to connect to a person and asked to be removed and he said "oh yes sir sorry for the inconvenience have a nice day" and then he disconnected immediately. wonder if they'll call again? just added my cell to the Do Not Call registry so next time I have more fire-power. This is the second time they have called me. Last time was about 4-6 weeks ago.
FYI ... research has identified Scott Heldt as a Senior Airman with the 819th Red Horse Squadron, stationed at Malmstrom Air Force Base near Great Falls, Montanta.
Received a call from 406.454.1413 to my cell phone. I did not answer it. Caller did not leave a message. REverse 411 identifies caller as Scott A. Heldt of Great Falls, Montana.
Just filed a complaint with the FCC at esupport.fcc.gov It's a new cell number and they didn't waste any time mucking it up, so I'm fighting back. No more ignoring it!
I have recently been getting unwanted calls from this person, they say everytime,(or when i pick up) "Is Don or Jerry there," he even did it to my friends number to saying the same thing. Then on my textmessages, when im texting, when i get a text back, it has his number right under what the person, im serious its in the same text message. and i dont know what is going on. and if i call the number back it says it is out of service. Example in my texts Hey. Call:406-454-1413
its becoming a big problem
The telemarketers get numbers and program them into their dialers so you dont know the real number they are calling from. Spy headquarers sells these devices.
This Scott dude probably has nothing to do with this at all. That is why the FCC will not be able to do anything about this.
just filed a complaint HOPE IT HELPS
I did a reverse phone look up. It is a residential number for Scott Heldt in Great Falls MT
it's a scam, just ignore it
They didn't leave a message, but now I see other people weren't as lucky. report it!
Montana area code
This is the second time I have received one of these calls. The other was from a number in Georgia. My mother - in - law has received them too. I got a recorded message saying the warranty on my vehicle expired. I have no warranty on my 10+ year old cars! Just some new scam artist who has found a new way to phish is my guess.
26th Mar 08. Just got a call (Not wanting this call) from this phone number. 406-454-1413....Scott Heldt
just got this call it was missed when i call i get disconneted message someone please stop this guy
Thanks everyone for the info and FCC link - just filed a complaint. stay vigilant!!!
just called no message
According the phoneboock it belongs to Scott A Heldt (406) 454-1413 Great Falls, MT 59402
This joker has called my cell phone repeatedly! He calls all day and has also called in the middle of the night (3:00 AM). I have never answered, but it is driving me nuts. Any ideas on how to get off his call list?
I'm getting pretty tired of this. Maybe with enough complaints, the FCC will finally do something to make it painful for these guys who think they're above the law.
File your complaint here.
My experience seems consistent with other postings. 1139 26/3/08
9:45am on Wednesday 3/26...im in Dallas and it is a "warranty" call for a car...tried to have my number erased but it does not let you do it...
I did not answer because of unknown caller.
in arizona. missed call left on cell phone.
These folk have called both my home phone and my work cell phone. Both times I press 1 to talk to the spammer, and both times I was hung up on when I pressed for the name of the business they were calling on behalf of.
I have filed a complaint with the FCC
I got a call at 10a on my cel and they hung up when I didn't answer, I tried to call back and got the 'disconnected' recording as well. Definitely will block it. Very strange. I am in CA as well.
Just got a call on my cell in CA at 3pm, and of course no message. These cell phone telemarketers are so irritating.
I got this call too, but hit ignore. sounds like other calls i've received about auto warrenty. per the FCC- IT IS ILLEGAL FOR TELEMARKETERS TO CALL CELL PHONES, precisly because of the charges. you can file a complaint online with the FCC. it takes min. (I would recommend doing this b/c if they are caught, it's a $11,000 fine- yes, $11Gs!- PER OFFENSE!!!) esupport.fcc.gov
It seems random to me, Nikki. I live in CA and just got a call from this number on my cell today. I really love that "Ignore" button. I do wish people could think of something good to do with their time though. Screwing with peoples phones is so juvenile.
I wonder if we all live across the country or just in the same area...Is it random or focused?
I have gotten several calls to my cellphone from the above number. The message reads "Your auto warranty may be about to expire. It is necessary for you to renew it." That's as far as I get before hanging up. If your number is in the "do not call list", you can file a complain at www.donotcall.gov
Fill in the details and the telemarketer will soon stop or go broke due to the fines. Amazing, telemarketers don't get it or don't care that we like to be left alone.
I just got a call from this number. Returned the call and got a message saying the number has been disconnected. Another of life's small annoyances.
I received a call from this number, but when I tried to call back it was not in service.
Is this a phishing thing? The conference room at my work was called by this number.
The number is from Great Falls Montana
I assume all of you have researched this and found the telephone number shows up on Google as belonging to a Scott A. Heldt, Great Falls, Montana and the location appears, on Google's map to be on or next to the Malmstrom Air Force Base. I don't know the significance of this information, just thought I would pass it along in case any of you haven't seen it.
Just got a call from that number about a minute ago. I just pressed my "reject number" and the other party is kindly told to fuck off. Is there nothing sacred. I don't mind them calling my landline cause I don't even have a phone attached to it. I just have it for my dsl, but I do use my cellphone and don't appreciate being called by telemarketers. Thank god for caller id!
auto warranty. pressed 1 to talk to someone, told them make and model (1996 kawa zl600) they said "thats a motorcycle" and hung up. redialed and got a number out of service or disconnected message. call was at 1:27 pm 3/21/08 . this call was to cell phone
Same here... 1st time from this number, called my cell phone no message left, google says from here...
I met the same case with Bob,
And received another call just now...
I am receiving calls from this number, maybe is about auto warranty. How can I stop this?.
I just got a call from this person and when I called it back it said no longer in service.
one ring, hang up call to my cell phone. Called back but number is "Not in Service".
I am receiving almost nightly calls from this guy. What is aggravating is that he is calling on my cell phone and I have to pay each time he calls. I am looking into what I can do to cause this caller to pay a penalty for doing this.
A recorded message about insurance. Called many times to my cell phone.
