This number called me and now they are "Blocked"!!

February 11th, 2014 UnknownNine IL

I was receiving multiple calls "Unknown Name Unknown Number"--some after 9 p.m. So, I used *77 to stop callers with blocked numbers from getting through to my land line. Anonymous Call Rejection will tell the unknown caller that my phone does not accept calls from private numbers and to hang up, reverse their number privacy, and try again. After a few days of no phone calls, I received one from an Unknown Name using 999-999-9999. I am assuming the caller who had been blocking their number decided to mask their number with a fake number instead, so that they could get through the ACR.

999-999-9999 is the standard Caller ID used for corporate in house extensions with 800, 877, 888, 866 and most base toll free numbers. Just never answer these calls as they are 100% worthless.

September 19th, 2013 Jessica OR

Every time I've answered the phone when this number calls it is silent and then it just hangs up on me. This time I answered with simply "Do not call this number again." I said it three times. I could hear background noise (like from a call center), and then the caller said "Shut. Up." and I hung up.

Mine was from Saint Jude Medical regarding a pain implant I had removed a couple of years ago. Apparently there's a recall on the battery power supply, yada yada yada.

April 24th, 2013 Masked Avenger CA

999-999-9999 is used by large companies to "mask" their internal extension lines that cannot receive a call back. There are hundreds of companies using this method when programming their caller ID blocking. Spammers and scammers are probably not phising this number.

April 24th, 2013 N Dumas LA

I get between 3 to 5 text messages from an 999 number . It's very annoying because it comes incomplete or mix with numbers and letter and symbols

April 4th, 2013 K CO

received two calls back to back; 1st from "Unknown" so I hit the power button on top of my iPhone twice to refuse the call... not even 10 seconds later the 2nd call comes in from "(999) 999-9999" so I do the same thing from that number - power button double-click and away it goes. I also have TrapCall so I have Blacklisted that number. I am also set up on the National DoNotCall registry - but there is no real data to report on the claim to file through DNC Reg... so I decided to post here.

Finally stopped the calls from this number, everytime it rang would answer and say ''hello'' they would begin talking and would say ''hello?'' two or three more times, then hang up. they called back a total of seven times over the space of two hours, that was a week ago today, since then not one call. Gues they stopped calling someone who couldn't ''hear them''.
Odd thing is, all but two of those calls were about credit card services and the other two were drug RX,,,, more than one telemarketers spoofing the same number??

February 7th, 2013 GordonWWatts FL

I got a call from this number (425-406-9420), but don't remember taking the call. It may have been a mortgage company, to whom I may have responded that we DON'T OWN, bubba; we're poor folk who rent!! I (It was Monday & this is Thursday, so I rightly don't recall.) I only see it on my caller-ID, listed as "INCOMING CALL" at 5:19PM FEB.04, 2013, but upon my attempts at a call-back, it says: "We're sorry. You have reached a number that has been disconnected or is no longer in service. If you feel you have reached this recording in error, please check the area code and the number, and try your call again."

Perhaps they can not receive incoming calls on a telemarketer line.

Or, then again, maybe God Himself struck them down, and so I get a bad number when I call back.

This Robocall left a voice mail on my answering machine. They want to sell me medications and drugs. What hucksters! First, I have no need for medications of any type. Second, I consult a doctor - not some machine! Third, those are boiler room scams. Also, they just want to find people to con them out of their money. For certain, I will be complaining. These are all schemes to rip people off! They should get a life and not not pester others with their crooked nonsense!

The FCC has temporarily halted 7 minor unprofitable boiler rooms who will receive a slap on the wrist and be back at it within a few days. In the meantime the calls will continue since they are making money with what is called a CNAM revenue-sharing program through companies like www.telephonemanagement.net and www.CallerID4U.com
In their own words: 'Every day your company makes thousands of outbound phone calls. Every one of those calls generates revenue for many companies, why not yours? Our CNAM revenue-sharing program helps you make money every time a Caller ID request is made by a phone carrier. A high-traffic call center can lose hundreds to thousands of dollars a day to phone carriers by allowing them to charge for access to your own data.'

You can now see why the criminals keep calling even though they know you won't fall for their scam. They are making money even if you don't answer the phone. If someone does make the mistake of answering the phone and falling for their con then it is just icing on the cake for them.

What To Do When You Get an Illegal Robocall; www.ftc.gov
1. Hang Up. Do not press 1 or any other numbers to get off the list and NEVER call them back
2. Consider blocking the number or on a cell phone add it to a contact list and assign NO ring tone
3. Report it at www.fcc.gov
4. Report it at www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov
5. People should continually file complaints with their Attorney Generals office
Register your phone numbers online at www.donotcall.gov or call (888) 382-1222 (must call from # you want removed).

There is a blog site that has information on one of these operations: telemarketerspam.wordpress.com

Was an automated call from planned parenthood as a reminder for my daughters depo shot appointment.

January 15th, 2013 Stopped Them FL

I have racked up over 200 of these calls since August 2012. I have contacted both my cell phone carrier and my wireless carrier. as I was receiving at least 2-3 calls per day every day including weekends. They couldn't help me but suggested I try downloading third party apps on my phone, but could not say which ones. After installing one particular app (I installed 2) this particular number UNKNOWN (was unmasked as 999-999-9999 by TRAPcall App) stopped on 01/07/2013 only after I installed the seconded app called CallScreen. I added the name as Unknown and the number 999-999-9999 to the unwanted feature. No more calls from this number! Thank goodness.

This seemed to stop my problem, I don't know if it will work for you.
My phone: Iphone 4g, Carrier AT&T,
Installed TrapCall first, which will unmask calls that come in on your caller-id as blocked, unknown or unavailable, etc. and will blacklist them, however it did not block this Unknown 999-999-9999 because 999-99-9999 is not a real telephone number.

I then installed the CallScreen App, and then two days later I stopped receiving calls from Unknown (999-999-9999). 200 calls later and no more calls!
Good Luck everyone.

Automated telemarketing call that when you call back wants you to enter your number to opt out. Upon further investigation- the number is NOT associated with International Telcom LTD. The customer service representative from International Telcom LTD was extremely kind and explained that they are getting plagued by whoever is spoofing their number as well as what can be done if the calls persist.

"Adam" told me he's working for Microsoft and needed me to turn on my computer. I asked several times for verification of his connection with Microsoft, and he continued to change the subject. He gave me instructions to "fix" my computer and I pretended to follow along. I told him the computer froze up, he acted like he couldn't understand me. Finally I said once again "I need verification of your employment". He said "Ok ma'am ok" and hung up on me.

KR, debt collectors want your money, not your excuses. Having ''explained the situation'' does not release you from the terms of a lender contract.

You may want to make certain it's TFS calling and not a third party collector in disguise. You can invoke FDCPA protection to raise a debt dispute and silence the calls if the latter is true. (The sloppy skip tracing reported in older posts here creates that suspicion.) Otherwise you'll need to live in one of the few states which aims a similar law at original creditors.

Official-type material on US federal collection law:

It's just the way the number came up probably bwcause of the storm and trying to restore phone lines who cares Im happy I answered it!

October 18th, 2012 Elaine FL

This is obviously NOT Nova Scotia Justice calling, but an I.D. theft bozo ring. Reports around the U.S. show that the person or persons behind it have an I.Q. 8 to 10 points below the average; hence, they really believe people will fall for it.

Most likely trying to collect expired debt...and...
Congress passed the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”), 47 U.S.C. §227, to curtail the use of automated dialers and prerecorded messages to cell phones without the permission of the consumer. Notwithstanding the passage of the TCPA, many businesses have harassed consumers by placing literally dozens and sometimes hundreds of telephone calls to cell phones.
On May 11, 2012, the United States Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit issued an opinion in the case of Teresa Soppet v. Enhanced Recovery Company, LLC. In the litigation, the Plaintiffs sued a debt collector attempting to collect a telephone bill from a third party. Plaintiffs sued Defendant for Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00) per telephone call and One Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($1,500.00) per telephone call if willful.
In response to the lawsuit, Enhanced Recovery Company asserted that it was not liable under the TCPA because it had consent from the party the debt collector intended to call — the actual customer of AT&T. In rejecting the argument of Enhanced Recovery Company, the 7th Circuit recognized that Plaintiffs are entitled to protection under the TCPA as they were the “called party” under the meaning of the TCPA.

From what I can tell, this # comes up from ANYONE calling through a non traditional phone line... Such as A cable company phone line, or VoiP lines, Skype etc....I have an unblocking service on my line & someone keep calling me private/blocked....when I look to find the actual # this is what shows. I think its an ex calling from a home with one of those cable bundle packages. Basically it could be anyone!

April 27th, 2012 me

I called the makers of Diamond Brand pet foods (Chicken Soup for the Soul) regarding one of their recalls, we had a very poor connection, so they offered to dial me back. The incoming call from the call center in Ohio displayed this unusual incoming number with Blocked Name as the caller ID displayed. There are some quite legitimate businesses perhaps unknowingly using this number for whatever technical reasons.

Three call from this number (3-1, 3-8, 3-14-2012) with caller ID of INCOMING CALL. No message from first two, answered the third. Caller said he was representing the state troopers association (didn't mention which state), was seeking a donation. Had no way to verify the caller's identity or affiliation, so I refused.

I finally answered the 619/489-1437 "Unknown Name" call. It was marketing research, asking about cell phone use, but they also asked a few questions about nationality, age, and annual income. They also wanted my cell phone number and to verify whether the number that they called was correct!!! Well, if they called the number, wouldn't know what number they dialed...after all, they call over and over and over again?!! They also asked how many hours we watch television, whether we speak more English or Spanish in the home, and how many hours we watch TV. I "passed" on several of their questions...I refused to answer about the annual income and I refused to give them my cell phone number. In the future, I will not answer any marketing questions again. Note: These marketing research calls are n/a for the DO NOT CALL list because they are not solicitors.

It rang once this morning then I put it on the blacklist. I haven't heard the phone ring since, so I am hoping this works. I would get 6 to 7 calls a day from 999-999-9999. There must be something else we can do to stop them. I am also on the do not call register, so why do business like this get by with it?

TRS, if you had followed the link I provided only fifty minutes prior to your comment, you would not need to rely on belief in what's legal collector behavior. Define ''after hours'' .... Their call window ends at 21:00 in your time zone every night of the year, absent written instructions to the contrary. Not leaving a message? That's likely from the abundance of caution shared by many collection firms, which tend to violate privacy, therefore attract lawsuits, by leaving messages of any detail or lack thereof.

October 14th, 2011 TRS1952 TX

Calls our company answering machine after hours and does not leave a message. If this is a debt collector, he or she will not be bothering anyone in our company as i do believe that is illegal.

October 14th, 2011 Resident47

Spare me .... as if ''Kelly'' (aliased, I'm sure) herself would type the dunning letter and lick the envelope. If your name is on its debt account, ERS in fact is required by federal law to promptly send you mail now that you've been called.

The ''important business'' phrase is a common code for debt collection, used to prevent privacy breaches, a soft spot for consumer lawsuits. The prompting for personal identifiers is done for the same reason.

If ERS thinks you owe something, be sure to respond on real paper to that dunning with a dispute and validation request, adding your request to restrict or revoke consent to call again. If the account is not legally collectable, or it's simply not you they want, you're free to send a full cease-comm, cutting off all contact. Send all notices via USPS Certified with return card. The FTC and many consumer watchdogs explain how to draft them.

I began getting these phone calls Sept. 6th. I had contacted a bankruptcy attorney about a week before; I think it may be related, because I have had this number for years. I don't answer because I don't know anyone in that area code, but I was curious and called back receiving the same, "We are currently closed. Please, call back during business hours." as others have reported here. They never leave a message.

The combination of times called, never leaving a message, and no answer when I called back, prompted me to do the search leading to this site. It is informative, and helps me know what to expect when they call again; I am certain they will.

Thank you.

Bia: The actual rule is that if your name is on the account in question, you must be dunned by mail within five days of first contact. If you're not the target, you are caught in the dragnet of a skip trace for the alleged debtor. Either way, it's no prank to the agency. Your best responses differ accordingly.

Well, FDCPA promoter, I've only been hitting all of your points in this thread since mid-October 2010. Several others before me had also referenced this federal law and corrected people on the misapplication of the DNC registry. Apparently it does no good. This thread will turn five years old as August begins, and we are answering the same easy questions over and over, which happens with a lot of collector threads on these boards.

Some -- not all -- come barreling in these sites with very common and valid complaints, and leave with nothing. You can tell that not a stitch of anything posted prior has been reviewed. They will return on other threads and make the same complaints again, never learning how to mount a proper defense against these debt industry bullies. They never wanted answers, only to kvetch and run. Apathy is so much easier, and really the sound advice to be found seems like too much work. For these people, at best, their peace and privacy will be forfeit. At worst they will be hauled into court to grimly submit to the costly demands of some robo-perjurer paper mill that broke eight or nine laws before suing to collect. For the do-nothings I've run out of sympathy.

For anyone still reading who wants a fighting chance, I'll adjust a few statements from the previous entry. The $1K statutory award is not easy to multiply. It's given per action, not violation. A rogue collector like ERS can call you names, make vulgar threats, and ring your phone 58 times a week, but (unfairly) you don't get to count a grand for each event. Possibly you can get other damages for distress, illness, and other reasons, but they need harder proof. The big payday awards which hit the news media nearly always come from extreme cases, like abuse heaped upon a disabled person or someone living on dog food.

I would agree that "done right" a victim could more modestly exceed the $1K award in settlement with a good Intent To Sue letter and copy of the legal complaint you would be ready to file. Note that I am not saying a lawyer is involved. It's your choice to fight alone or by proxy, but often the available "consumer" lawyers are out for a payday like your opposition. You may have violations but no professionals able or willing to fight for you. Fortunately the same internet which led you here can also lead you to sources of pro se warrior wisdom.

Making dud calls without disclosure of identity or reason is not an automatic violation. In January I'd already discussed why this can happen. Harassment in a legal sense may not be your sense or mine. You'll need to establish a pattern showing frequency, times, and any content of calls. This means keeping good records. Maybe they won't equal a violation, but they will help define what you're up against.

Attorneys general and the FTC are valid complaint venues which help the public good and may get the bad actors eventually fined and shut down. But understand that you must confront collection agencies directly if your goal is to halt or punish their mistreatment of your privacy and consumer rights. Regulators can help your case but they can't do everything for every person. It's your assets and your sanity at risk, and your job to guard them.

Maybe all you need are a few dollars for a single USPS Certified mailing, or maybe you'll need days of research to disentangle your mess. Either way a vigilant and defensive stance is never a waste. The bad collectors don't expect you to fight well, and most people don't, which is why their sloppy way of doing business is so effective. Your ignorance is their strength. Your lack of hope is their courage. Your resistance could change that.

For EVERYONE here. Take the time to review the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. You will find that there are a number of violations of the act being perpitrated by this collection agency. One includes the calling of cellular phones costing the phone owner time on their phone which costs money. They are NOT to do this. Another is the making of Useless or Worthless calls. IE: Calling and not giving a proper reason for the call. This includes hanging up on answering machines and on the person who answers the phone. This can also be added to the harrassing calls violation. Done right each call can glean a nice $1.000.00 fine. Some calls can be labled under both the useless and harrassing because of Caller ID and failing to id themselves which can be a tidy $2,000.00 fine. Now for the REALLY good part.. There is enough here on this site to show that this debt collector is not only practicing these habits regularly but DELIBERATELY which a judge can add certain damages and penalties to. It has been alleged that some people who have taken steps to document such activities and to pursue action received as much as $16,000.00 in penalty awards against such blatant violators of their rights and they actually had the debts that the collector was trying to collect. Just think of what the victims of such practices can glean from a debt collector when they don't even owe the debt and are not the person the debt collector is trying to collect from but are still being treated as such??? All you have to do is STAND UP AND TAKE ACTION! File your complaints with your state attorney general's consumer protection divisions! Make them work for you! That is the only way to start getting these preditors under control! Oh.. And the Do Not Call Registry has NO legal binding on debt collectors. That is only against solicitors for services or products and even then it can only work against those who you can prove have violated your rights under the provisions of the DNCR. And the same goes there. If you want it to stop.. FILE YOUR COMPLAINTS! Don't just cry about it! List your experiences on the Who Called Us site so everone else who has been victimized by predatory callers of ALL types can know they are NOT alone! Then refer the legal eagles back to the site so they can see how many people are being victimized by such callers. THE LOUDER THE NOISE THE FASTER THE ACTION FOLKS!!!! Nuff Said???

Collection agency with an incorrect phone number, who won't stop calling my cell phone...

March 25th, 2011 Agrivated NM

Don't know what the call was about. They did not leave a message. Don't have any debts gone to collections so if this is a collection agency they clearly have the wrong number. Too bad so sad... I will just add them to my don't wanna know list and leave it at that until they leave a message so I can contact them back to say. "Wrong Number!" "Stop Calling US!"...

Anon, you don't need a valid debt or a derogatory trade line on your credit reports to be hassled by debt collectors. They call third parties to alleged debtors all the time for permitted skip tracing purposes, or at times pretending it's a trace to annoy and shame the intended target.

Ms. Miller, a collector must send a dunning letter within five days of first contact with an alleged debtor. If you don’t see that soon, it’s a violation. You could maybe add a count of deceptive practice for falsely claiming to have done this.

If you are receiving repeated, misdirected, and/or abusive calls from a third party debt collector, you may find relief in the provisions of the FDCPA, the Federal law which regulates collector behavior. Learn your rights at FTC-dot-gov. See also your state laws for additional support.

My coffee company sent my coffee to an old address and I called FEDEX to have the address changed, however, they have a special shipping class that involves the US Postal Service and that's who called to let me know that they couldn't change the address on the package... the number was 999-999-9999

This company called and left a message with my answering service. The message was that "Angelina James called & has information to give me." When I returned the call, a young man named "Andrew" answered and told me he is with CACI; and they are collecting a medical debt. I told him to send something in writing. I had received a call from these people about a week ago and told them the same thing. I have never received anything in writing from them, although "Andrew" claims to have already sent out a letter. When he kept talking, I hung up.

They are probably just testing all numbers to see if they are in service
or are a telemarketing firm with computerized pre-dialing.

I received a call to my Majic Jack telephone number 678-395-8429 January 27, 2011 around 11:30- 11:50 AM. There was no name on the caller ID, just the number. I immediately hung up the phone and later erased the number from the telphone. Do you know who originated that call?

I received an unsollicted call from 999-999-9999 on Jan. 27, 2011 around 11:30 to 11:50 AM. I hung up immediately and later removed the call from the telephone. Who was the originator of this call? I thought that I should register this with some government agency. My telephone number involved was 678-395-8429. It is a number from Majic Jack and they have no blocking of any number at this time. So I have registered this with the do not call site for three of our telephone numbers including the one listed above.
