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
Hicksville NY | Hicksville NY |
hicksvilleny calls from 8 phone numbers:
Computer hackers. Tricking you into giving computer information to "fix" software.
This fucking number makes me angry. They don't say any word. As soon as I pick up they say "Good Bay" Where can I complain about this
Says he's from Microsoft..total scam call with that all too familiar accent from India
Got a call from this number today, accent from India, name "Kevin"..yeah sure. Wanted to help with my Microsoft problem..when he paused I said "and what to do you want Kevin"..he then said "I don't want to talk to you" and I said "That's good because I am not going to talk to you"..he beat me to hanging up. Dirtbag!
They are scammers trying to gain remote access to your computer and trying to convince you your pc is messed up. Its all a lie, the Ftc is going after them.if you need more info look up telemarketing microsoft scam. They use the names of reputable companies to try and trick people.
Scam scam scam scam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!j
This women is a prostitute and solicits married men in Facebook.
The caller claimed to be calling from Microsoft & wanted me to open my computer so they could fix my "Microsoft problem" ...but I never reported having a problem with Microsoft...SCAM!
Got calls from here saying my WIndows licence expired...
Caller ID: "Hicksville NY". Called at 9:15 AM EDT, did NOT leave a message. Possible debt collector. I have been getting a series of calls for someone who is not at this number for the past 2 weeks. (Note: Other number searchs report this number as a telemarketer, or as calling and having "dead air")
Has called multiple times and twice last night at 9:03 PM and 12:23 AM
called 5:08pm hung up
I'm fairly certain that its a telemarketing company working for a non-profit agency. (Some good-cause organization based in Nassau County, New York (Long Island), where 516 is). It's also definitely a trunk number - very few real phone numbers end in -0000.
hangs up and shows out of area
a number of calls from this number, how do I stop it?
i got this call today.. and liek the rest ther ewas noone there.. fucking stupid
I have experienced the same thing: repeated calls, no answer, number not in service. BUT from a different number, it showed up on my cell phone 234-650-0000. Has this happened to anyone else? I never got calls from the 516 number.
They call continuously and the moment I answer they hang up.
In the last few days, I've received several calls at random hours of the day. No one is there when I answer. I took BK's good advice on 7/20/07 and filed a complaint with the FTC (888-382-1222)
Says OUT OF AREA. They've called several times. Don't know who they are.
I think this is one of those trunk lines. You don't want to answer or call it back which then opens them up to you calling you from 100s of lines. That's the loophole in the Do Not Call Registry
I finally went through Verizon about them. I've been getting calls every week for months and no one is ever there when I answer. I just called FTC 1-888-382-1222 to file complaint. Hope everyone will join in.
go to do not call registry ands file a complaint over and over again again again
Called a couple times this week and last week. The phone hangs up as soon as I answer.
We're getting calls from this number every day
Got a call from 516-932-0000. No one spoke. Must be a professional pest.
No message, no one to answer the phone, hung up
They hang up when I pick up and say hello. What will happen next in about 15 minutes I will start getting calls from solicitors. I think it is a telemarketing company that first tests to see if you are home or screening calls, then the harrassment starts. I report this number to Do Not Call list.
After about 20 calls, someone finally answered.
She was raising money for breast cancer.
I asked to be taken off their list.
I didn't catch name of organization.
they have been calling, even on weekends. shows Hicksville NY-no message left. am also on do not call registry. when i call back right away a recording says it is not in service
We have been getting this call a couple of times a week. I called it back and it says the number is not in service. They're friggin annoying motherf***ers!
I have two lines - different area codes, different names. Within moments the call came to one phone then the other. It's not the first time this number has called, either.
calls and hangs up
search the number in google using parenthesis. with the parenthesis you get this russian site with a bunch of links to porn. search for the number itself. if anyone knows russian and can know what that number has to do with anything would be great. who knows if its a pediphile or something in hicksville ny...also search the number and the first 6 digits in google. you get a bunch of numbers that are either in hicksville or in plainview long island. or something along those lines...
Phone just rings - no one answers.
We have 2 lines - they called both lines simultaneously, no answer on either.
Same scenairo as all the other reports.
Have rec'd these weekly for at least 3 months.
I filed complaint.
Called at 10:48 on Sunday morning
Unknown...no one there when I answered.
Caller id showed "unknown name" with 516-932-0000. When I answered, got a hang up, dialed the number and got "not in service"
This is getting REALLY annoying!
Same as it ever was
Same as everyone else
this number keeps calling my number,and when i try and call this number,i get a message that says not in service at this time.i'm sick of this caller,and would love some payback.
phone rang, I answered, they hung up...
received several calls from this phone number in the last few days. When I pick up, they hand up. No info on my caller Id. I'm on the do not call list.
every time they call they hang up. then when you call back it says the number is out of service.
someone in the phone co or from the police department can bust this number. they can relieve a lot of people from being hurt by this person who make calls and hung up.
trying to know if someone is home.
Yea i get calls from them too. It's very annoying. Just call up your Phone service n have the number blocked.
same mo hang up after i answer unknown name when i call # not in service
Calls constantly always wakes me up! If you call THEM a recording says the number is not in service!!
Wish I would have read recruita's comments before my curiosity had me call back the number.
I did go over to the National Do Not Call site and filed a complaint.
No one answers when you pick up.
They keep calling! when I answer no one speaks. when im not home they do not leave a message.I don't get the out of area part as I have same area code.
Just plain Annoying!
WHY?? I'll tell you why. The law of the "do not call" registry state that no entity other than a "not for profit", or a company that you are already dealing with or have dealt with in the past, OR A NUMBER THAT YOU YOURSELF HAVE CALLLED can call you. Once you call that number you have opened up the floodgates and have now given legal access to receive call from that main line that hundreds of lines can be fed through to call you at will. Call centers are boiler rooms with hundreds of operators that could be telemarketing for a not for profit as well as doing marketing and sales for a company that is selling widgets. If you feel the need to satisfy you curiosity when you receive a call from an questionable caller ID, and you don't want to welcome in a flood of overbearing high pressure telemarketers CALL IT BACK FROM A PAY PHONE.
The "do not call registry" has killed the telemarketing industry. Because of this an industry that was already one of the most divisive all-be-it inventive has been floundering away to find ways around the do not call laws. What most of you don't realize is that "Not For Profits" are not covered under the "Do Not Call" rules and regulations. Because of the state of affairs, a new industry has emerged and that is one that through some technological wizardry and a sizable fee can "tinker" with the caller ID's that are transmitted when call are made from specific numbers. The entities that are placing these calls have no interest in talking to you, not now anyway. What they do is call you from a trunk line through which tens or hundreds of phones can funnel calls, then transmit an innocent sounding ID such as "American Heart Association” or "Breast Cancer Donations" you, out of curiosity or in earnest return the call and you get hung up on.
Whoever is calling from this number 516-932-0000 is truly an A-Hole & Very Annoying. They just hang up like little kids pranking. Usually around 8:30pm but think they also call once earlier in the day.
GET A LIFE YOU F-ING LOWLIFE SCUM!!!!!!
just like everyone else..gets a phone call every several days..when you answer they hang up..try to call back..say # is not in service..definitely think its some kind of scam..i called optonline..said they cant block it..that i should call the police..
picked up , no answer,
called number, said not in service
I have been getting these calls for weeks now. There starting to make me insane. They never leave a message on the machine and no one ever is on the line when I do answer. I filed a complaint at the donotcall web site.
This is about the 26th call I received from this number in 3 months; I'm calling to report this to local gov, authorities, etc...
Every day receiving call from this number 2 times is a row- no message no hello- when call back same message as all of the others
Hangs up like always. Lots of fun.
January 8 2007, around 11:15 AM EST. Phone rings, when I answer there is no sound, no one there. I pressed star 69 and found the number was 932-0000. Yes, very annoying. I wish I could just reach through the phone lines and slap them. Hey, I have an idea. If you know anyone who does this sort of thing, shun them, make them feel like crap, and tell everyone what a low life they are. Eventually they will only be able to spend time with their own kind and perhaps inbreeding will make them extinct.
this is the weirdest thing- I have 2 phone lines in my house-one in my husband's name, and one in mine. (2 different last names)
When 516-932-0000 calls, it makes BOTH phone lines ring simultaneously. There is caller ID on both, and they both say UNKNOWN NAME 516-932-0000. They both hang up when the answering machines kick in.
When I answered phone, they hung up. When I called back got a recording that number is out of service at this time.
Have received many calls from this #. Out of Area always comes up even though I am in the 516 area. I decided to answer this morning and no body was there. When I called I got number not in service message.
This jackass is so annoying someone report it
Hangs up like always.
You all really need to file your complaints with on the Do Not Call Registry website: www.donotcall.gov
There is little that local and federal authorities can do without formally registered complains.
Should block the number!
Same problem as everyone else. Caller hangs up and then when u call back it says # not in service. Not the 1st time this number has shown on my caller ID.
I got a call from this number; it showed the number and 'UNAVAILABLE' as the ID.
I really just got out of the hospital for a tonsilectomy and made the mistake of answering teh phone.
I told the caller this information; she told me:
"oh just stop it"
Isn't that sweet .....
I know there is a law about identifying the number you're calling from; this really should be enforced.
They just called me and when I picked up no one answered, I either didn't make it in time. They called a mobile # So I googled the name. I'm also on the Do Not Call registry so they have no right to call.
I believe they are right about the call distributor. Makes it seem like it's a local call so people would be more apt to pick up the phone.
Pretty much get a daily call. When I pick up there is nobody there. They never leave a message if I don't pick up. I think the number is a trunk line, that is why you cannot call into it. If it is a trunk line, the callers are picked at random and go out over a call distributor.
Got a call tonight. I said hello once, when no one replied I hung up. Voice activation occurs when you say hello twice, so I never do.
Charities are exempt from the "do Not Call" list.
Sounds like a phone scam.
Got a Call At 8 pm and they instantly hung up.
Got a call from this number at 5:08 pm on 11/16/2006. They hung up on my answering machine.
Hung up as soon as the answering machine kicked in.
Is anyone late on their LIPA or Verizon bill?
I just let it ring and goto the answering machine. No message was left. When I called it back, I got a
"Im sorry. The number you reached 516-932-0000 is not in service at this time. No further information is availible"
Happened today. I picked up and said Hello twice, then I heard them hang up.
called and asked for somebody asked who was calling they sed "me" and hungup
hung up after i said hello twice
Just received this call today, when I answered they hung up? Strange..When I called the # it was not in service...
Answered call and a man's voice said: "Heh---lloooo" with a rising inflection and then a woman's voice said the same thing with the same inflection, but at a lower volume.
Definitely a crank call.
same problem-no one is there when I pick up
They just called me and when I picked up no one answered so I googled the name. Who are these people? I'm also on the Do Not Call registry sot hey have no right to call.
I've seen it come up twice on my phone and both times I was not home but it showed on the caller ID as Hicksville. When I called it back it says that it is out of service???? 9/17/06 & 9/27/06
Same as Carol Burke
Over 20 calls in the month of August. All calls traced *57. If any needs me to sign a complaint I will.
A number of calls from 5169320000 and when I don't pick it up, they don't leave a message. When I pick it up they hang up. My phone shows "OUT OF AREA"
No one there. When I tried to call back, number reported to be out of service.
Guy asked if he could send out card. I asked if I had to make a commitment first. He said they would count on my $25 donation. I said I wanted to read about it first. He said "Why are you wasting my time then" and hung up. Real piece of work, this guy. I called back and got an out of service message. Has to be a scam.
Received first call today, picked up and no one answered
Exactly the same as "anon" of 2006-08-11
I've gotten calls over the last several weeks from this number. It has a "not in service" message when called.
same thing - phone spammer
They called last week and asked if they could send out a pledge card, none ever came but this week they called back and hung up when i answered the phone
No body is ever there.
I got 3 calls over 3 or 4 days from this number.
When I called it, I got a not in service message
