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
lifegivmoments calls from 2 phone numbers:
Received a phone call this morning at 8:28 A.M.--the lady caller knew my name was Dan and she identified herself as "Amanda'. I asked her if I had given her permission to call. She said she was trying to help. I told her that it was a little early to be calling and for her not to call again. I had received a similar call a couple of weeks ago from a "SRT Research" or something like that. My wife passed away 12/5/13 so I don't know if there might be a connection or not.
BE SAFE! DO NOTY LOOK UP ONLINE! They've been calling for nearly a year! Ask for me by my first name while my voice message was playing. My first name is not in phone book and don't use often online. I made huge mistake by looking them up on internet and got a TROJAN HORSE THAT LOCKED UP MY COMPUTER AND SAID WAS THE FBI CYBER CRIMES AND I HAD TO PAY $300 to unlock my computer. Thankfully my brother is in computer biz and also had been hit with it. Had to make a disc on different computer and load a program to get computer back. Was hit with non-stop Trojan Horses for over 6 months so could not good online. Neither my protection nor my brothers caught first Trojan but got the others that kept popping up 30 minutes after got offline! He said this Trojan was out for a while. When I looked online it sent me to a foreign bank! Then I looked at another link so not sure which one had Trojan. They also call under another number. Took me a long time to use my computer online again. News in my area said to file with FCC but not sure if that is the agency they said for online hazardous scams. Anyone know who to tell? Thanks D
Folks, the days of friendly calling are over, as is the privacy of your phone numbers. If you don't recognize the area code or calling number, DON'T ANSWER. If it's an important call a message will be left. I find the hardest thing to do is resist the impulse to answer, but remember, if it's important they'll call back or leave a message.
They called asking for someone who does not live here (male) the said oh wrong name right number let me speak to the man of the house I hung up she just kept repeating but this is life giving moments call came in 9 p.m. Stop calling and harassing people!
I am going to report them now.
this is a do not call home. what don't they understand. I am tried of there calls. will file if they don't stop
It's a bot. They're getting really good with them. Play with shady answers and you'll notice. They have a dot org, and the mission appears to be raising awareness and teaching kids and parents about internet safety...
WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE??? THEY NEVER LEAVE A MESSAGE.
MY WHOLE HOUSEHOLD IS ON DNC LIST LANDLINE & CELL PHONE HAVE BEEN SINCE BEGINNING. BUT WE ALL CONTINUE TO GET NUMEROUS CALLS FROM AROUND THE COUNTRY--TELEMARKETERS EVERYDAY, SOMETIMES MORE THAN ONCE A DAY. THE DNC LIST,ITS NOT "DO NOT CALL" ITS CALL, CALL CALL! ANOTHER GOVERNMENT JOKE!!!

Yes, it's a bot. Doesn't matter what you actually say (or if you say anything at all) it's just documenting that your number was answered and a mark stayed on the phone for a duration of their blatant misrepresentation of a real call. Obviously if this was legitimate (at all) they wouldn't robo-call, but even if there was some unfathomable reason why such tactics were legit, trying to fool you into thinking you're talking to a real person gives it away that this is a total scam. The fact that the questions are so stupid and it doesn't matter what you say is just to sort out the entirely-gullible from the normally-gullible. I'm surprised they didn't try something like "This is an important message from someone you must obey: Send all your money to me at this address...."
Called at 830am. A woman calls up asking for my name. I reply, who's calling? She says 'Just to let you know, my name is Amanda and I am with Life Giving.... I cut her off and said And I don't want to be on your list, remove me. Hung up.
Asked for my son who hasn't lived at home for 15 yrs & never at this address. Was not open to listen to my explanation, just kinda rude. Too bad individuals put themselves in an employment situation working for a company that is breaking the FTC laws. Hope more people would report theses types of companies & concerns.
We did not answer the call, but the caller, a woman, left a message: "Is Susie there?" This number calls on a regular basis, though we never answer the calls. This was the first time that anyone has left a message.
I don't answer calls from numbers I don't recognize. So, they need to stop calling me. I am on the national do not call list and I WILL report them.

asked for my husband, I asked who was calling and they went into a thing about thaking a survey about parental controls on tv and movies. I answered the questions, then was told to press 9 to add my name to their petition. At that point I hung up!
Funny ring, not the one I have on my phone. I did not answer. Caller ID said lifegivemoments
Received a call tonight. The woman first asked to speak with Michael. I told her there was no one here by that name, and I had recently gotten the number she had called. She got haughty and said "Well, just so you know; I'm Anne Bain (Baine?) calling from Life Giving Moments." I replied, "Is that supposed to mean something to me?" and waited for an answer. She stayed on the phone, but, did not reply, so I said, "Just so you know; this phone is registered with the Do Not Call Registry and has been since I was issued this number. Call again, and I'm reporting you." She still didn't answer, but stayed on the line. I said "Fine. Don't apologize for calling the wrong number." and hung up.
I had to use *69 to get the number of the person who had called as it did not show on my caller ID.
creepy, creepy telemarketer at 8:30pm.
A woman calls up asking for my name. I reply saying who is calling. She says 'Just to let you know, my name is Amanda and I am with Life Giving Moment.' She then hangs up. I called caller ID to get their number 602-753-5621. Who the hell are these people?
no message left calls a couple times a day
I'm with USNSPARKS, using the 'call display', I do not answer the phone if I don't recognize the phone number. They usually don't leave a message, which tells me that they don't know me either. Received this call after 8:00 p.m., late for anyone I know to be calling me.
Called at 8 AM. They said my name on the voice mail and then hung up.
Why do people think if the phone rings they must answer it? You have
CID, USE IT! Do you let anyone coming to your door into your home? Of
course not. Wake up people, these are crooks, DO NOT ANSWER when they
call you! They manipulate the CID system so the info is probably fake.
If for some insane reason you must answer it's too late! Soon as you
answer you've told them your number is valid. They sell this info to
other scammers. Pushing a # to 'remove yourself from their list' does
absolutely NOTHING for you. Do NOT call them back!
IF YOU DON'T RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER DON'T ANSWER THE PHONE! WAKE UP!
Stop these calls with Phone Tray Pro - www.phonetray.com
The phone block system the phone company charges you for does NOT
block all the calls Phone Tray Pro does. I have NO connection with
Phone Tray Pro, I am simply an EXTREMELY happy customer. Best money
I have ever spent! DIGITONE ($100), TELE ZAPPER, PRO CALL BLOCKER ($50)
etc don't do nearly what Phone Tray Pro does and cost a LOT more! Don't
waste your money on these worthless gadgets.
As of 07/15/13 I have 191 #'s, 12 Wild Card #'s and 16 CID names on my
PTP Black List that will never get through again.
The DNC doesn't affect scammers. Don't be so naive. You can report them
to the FTC but honestly when was the last time the federal government
ever did anything for you? Oh I forgot, Obamacare. Speaking of scams!
These people rang my mum's phone this evening around 5:15pm mountain time. The CallerID said "Illinois." I answered the phone. A woman said, "hello, ___________." She called my mum's first name, like she knew my mum. I asked who was calling - there was no answer. I assumed she didn't hear me, so I repeated louder, "who's calling?"
She hung up.
Called number. Automated message said would take my phone number off list. Would take 30 days.
Why do so many people think if their phone rings they must answer it?
You have Caller ID, USE IT! Do you let anyone coming to your door into
your home? Of course not. Wake up people, these are crooks, DO NOT
ANSWER when they call you! They manipulate the CID system so any info
you get is probably bogus anyway.
If for some insane reason you must answer it's too late! The second
you answer the phone you have told them you have a valid phone number.
They will then sell this info to other scammers. Pushing a # to
'remove yourself from their list' does absolutely NOTHING for you.
Do NOT call them back!
IF YOU DON'T RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER DON'T ANSWER THE PHONE! WAKE UP PEOPLE!
How easy is that?
Stop these calls with Phone Tray Pro - www.phonetray.com
BTW the phone block system the phone company charges you for does NOT
block all the calls Phone Tray Pro does. Disclaimer: I have NO connection
with Phone Tray Pro other than being an EXTREMELY happy customer of their
products. I used Phone Tray Free for years and now use their Phone Tray Pro.
Best money I have ever spent! I've seen references for a
Typical a-hole spammer. May Karma grant these morons and their families devastating health and financial hardships immediately as a result of their spamming and scamming.
The 1st question they asked me didn't make sense and told them so. They didn't care so II promptly asked for their website and told them I 'd get my information there instead. I hope they never call back . I strongly suspect a hidden agenda.
Not only are we on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY, but the call came in shortly after 8:00 AM ...... Too early for even legitimate callers..... list apparently serves no useful purpose....
tell them to drop dead
no msg, did not ans.
No message left.
They call from various numbers at all times of the day. I've never picked up before but today they called at 8:30 a.m. Caller ID said "Illiinois" and I recognized the number so I picked up to demand they stop calling.
Woman who answered asked for male householder by his first name. I asked who was calling and she didn't respond but instead said she "could talk to anyone in the household who was over 18." I told her we've gotten numerous calls from them and that we were on the Federal DNC list. She said she would remove us from their list.
Will believe that when the calls stop
We have rec'd several calls from different numbers that show Lifegivingmoments or something similar. Wishntheybwould stop!
Called but did not leave message. Caller ID has appeared with different phone numbers before now.
Asked for me by first name
They called and on the message said "is linda there." That was it. There isn't nor has there ever been a linda at our phone number.
Interesting, that the name "Amanda" showed up here, too. As soon as I would have heard that name, which is associated with so much spam and scam and phishing, I would have hung up immediately. "Amanda" has been there for Credit Card Services since 2007 at least; she is a voice recording attached to a robo-call device. Her "home base" is in California, with a company called Pacific Telecommunications, which has connections to CallerID4U.
Last week, I got a call from these people. I picked up the receiver and began to punch the # key a dozen times or so. When I stopped, I heard a distressed woman's voice demanding "don't you know what you're doing?" Then, in the last seconds, I distinctly heard a man's voice on the line. I hung up.
According to White Pages, there really is a charity called Life Giving Moments, that to my opinion seems to work much like A Child's Wish. The group would probably do just as well to put fliers in church bulletins.
called after 8pm last night and when i reponded started to sound like they were raising funds for something. i hung up and this AM called them and found it was a non working number. it appears that the illegal calls are getting worse and more frequent.. is the federal government doing anything about them???
Caller ID said "LIFEGIVMOMENTS." The woman started asking nosy, fake "survey" questions. When I asked why she was asking me, she got very rude and just said "Okay, BYE!"
Didn't leave a message
no message left
Calls every few days, sometimes several times a day. I do no answer. They do not leave a message, just hang up.
