"Heather from Account Services" calls every day now. THE
FTC WEBSITE TO REPORT ILLEGAL TELEMARKETING CALLS HAS BEEN DOWN FOR OVER A
MONTH. Not that FTC did anything before, you understand. If Congress
people ever answered their own phones or looked at their own e-mail
(spam), they might understand the plague of BS real people have to endure
every day. How much did telemarketers contribute to presidential and
congressional campaigns? Why is "Account Services" allowed to carry on
their illegal business unimpeded? What would happen if YOU violated Federal
law 10,000 times an hour?
i have selected option "3" to no longer recieve calls and i am still called. when i selected the option to speak to a person, as sooln as i said that this call was in violation of my federal rights they hung up. This needs a class action law suit!!!
Hi My name is Margarita McManus. I here to set everyone straight about this number my parents had this number changed May of 2006. They aren't telemarketer they can't stand them either they've done everything they can do to get them to quit calling them also. Besides 8 months out the year they are in another state working. I really don't know who is doing this but it needs to stop and if I found out who's doing I will let you know who's doing just as well.
Sincerely, Margarita McManus
Caller ID says Pensacola, FL. I didn't answer and they left no message.
I just moved into a new place, with a new and unlisted number. My first day here I got a call from this number. I didn't answer. Also got a call from this number as well: 000-000-0000. Obviously didn't answer that one, either. Amazing how they can snag an unlisted number so fast. Very annoying.
Left no message on answering machine..
Caller ID said Unknown Name and they didn't leave a message.
Just got a call from these people. Recorded message said it was about lowering my credit card interest rate. Yeah right, I hear ya. Anyhow, I called back 2 minutes later and it's been disconnected. SCAM!!!! Watch out!!
Have gotten several pre-recorded messages from "card holder services". Same deal. press 9 to talk to a representative, press 8 to be taken off call list. When I press 8, I get a message saying "this is not a valid response". When I speak to a rep, and tell them to please take me off the list, they hang up. Played along a bit to get some info, first spoke with "Peter Fondue" (yeah, right) and then Renee who hesitantly said they were located in Illinois, then hung up. Scum. Phone ID says "Unkown Number"
Number was on phone.No message left.This is not the first time."Whocalled"list tells me i"m not alone....
RECIEVED ANOTHER MESSAGE, AGAIN I FILED A COMPLAINT WITH THE FCC. THIS IS PROBABLY A ID THEFT RING OR SCAM TO GET CREDIT CARD NUMBERS. EVERYONE BEAWARE, DON'T EVER GIVE ANYONE THAT CALLS ANY INFORMATION ABOUT YOU. IF IT'S A CREDIT CARD COMPANY YOU ALREADY DO BUISNESS WITH THEY WILL NOT ASK FOR ANYTHING. MAKE SURE YOU FILE COMPLAINTS WITH THE FCC.
The phone number and name in Caller ID is fake. Go to:
and see for yourself.
They spoof their number & name to any disconnected phone in any State they choose. They will rob you in a minute.
Everyone, PLEASE take 5 minutes and send the FCC a form 1088 regarding this number. Yes, it's most likely faked/stolen, but they will still investigate and can subpoena call records.
thought this call was from family back home but I don't know the number and no one answers....no msg left on my mach. We are on the do not call list.
Credit card re-financing. Pressed 1 to speak with someone. Asked operator why they don't check/honor Nat'l Do Not Call Registry. He hung up on me.
No caller ID. Left no message. I am on Do Not Call List.
2nd call this week about my credit cardso pressed 1 to talk to an "agent". Answered fairly rapidly with "Do you have over $2500 in credit card debt?". I asked "Can you tell me what card this is reference to? Immediately switched me over to another number who didn't know who they were calling so asked for name and phone number. I said I was on the national no call list and wanted to know what card they were calling about so that I could tell my credit card company not to call.
They hung up.
called me 2 times so far this week...no msg.
Caller ID says Pensacola, FL. I missed the call and they didn't leave a message.
Received a call 06/11/2007, some telemarketing recording was left on my machine. Filed complaint with the FCC. ****FILING COMPLAINTS THROUGH THE DO NOT CALL LIST WILL NOT GET YOU ANY WHERE. THEY DO NOT HAVE THE POWER TO FINE OR PROSECUTE PEOPLE, THE FCC DOES AND WILL DO IT. THEY HANDLE ANYTHING THAT DEALS WITH PHONES OR COMMUNICATIONS. I have attached the website to this message. www.fcc.gov
Got call from this number-no message left. Shows up as Florida Call.
I received a call from this number but didn't answer and they left no message. My number is on the DNC list so if someone knows these are telemarketing calls they should be reported.
stop calling my home 631 687-22**. I have reported you to donotcall.gov
annoying calls- STOP
call was a recorded message saying I could lower my interest rate if I was over $2500 in debt. I hung up.
I got a call with the automated message stating the vehicle I'm currently driving is almost up on its warranty. Too bad two vehicles we own are over 12 years old and the other is a brand new HHR we picked up a month ago. I called the number back but it's been disconnected, big surprise.
Caller ID said Florida call with this number. That's all I've got. I'm reporting it to DNC list.
SCAMMER FISHING FOR YOUR INFO, HANG UP OR DON'Y ANSWER!
Picked up the phone and no one answered.
No message left
call id just said Florida
& the number
Since mid May this number calls me every weekday at 10:30 am CDT. Every day it leaves a different message on my answering machine. I think it's a scam & a fraud. One message was from a man with a stern voice who said it was "from card services with an urgent message about my account" and said it was imperative for me to call back as soon as possible. Instead I called the number on the back of the only credit card that I have and they said they never contacted me and my account is fine (I have a $5500 limit but only have $460 balance on the card and make payments every month on time). Another message was from an overly excited young woman who said I won an all expense paid vacation for 2 and needed to call back asap in order to claim the prize. When I saw the same phone number with a different message in a different person's voice, I ignored it. Then there was the message from a man who said he had urgent information to discuss about a family member who was stranded in Florida without any way to get back home to Wisconsin. WTF??!! All my family is right here in WI and nobody has traveled farther than 20 miles to work and back. And it continues. One time I answered the call and it was a recording leaving me a recorded message about a trip I won to Cancun. No way to talk to them unless I call back, which I won't do. I think they are just trying to get credit card numbers so they can make fraudelent charges. Beware, don't give them any info.
Caller ID: PENSECOLA, FL
Number on C/ID: 850-456-1207
recorded telemarketing call about "your current credit cards"...
I get a call from these people every couple of weeks or so.
No name in caller ID, just number. Reported to FTC at the Do not call list website. You should too. www.donotcall.gov
I answered the call, but no response on their end.
I answered becuase we have friends in Pensacola, it was not them...I was curious so pressed 1 and spoke to a live person offering to consolidate my credit cards...he asked if I had more than $5000 in credit card debt, I said no, he asked if I was sure, I said yes...the call disconnected...how RUDE!!
I basically know how companies like this work. When you go shopping or inside of a department store (for example: Marshalls) and they ask you for your phone number (& if you provide it), this is how companies like this get your phone number. Whether you are on the do not call registry or not (b/c you basically volunteered this info). These automated services call you, not the actual representative so they actually do not have you phone number at all. On their end on the phone, it actually looks like you were the one that called them instead of the automated service. Option number 2 to remove your phone number basically does not work. You can remove your number by immediately telling the representative to remove your number from the do not call log but you will have to provide it and it will be removed in about 2-3 days. It's just like e-mail spam, if you just delete it you'll have more in your inbox the next day but if you unsubscribe from their site they stop after a few days. Take it from an insider trust me it works, hanging up does not help - the automated service just calls you back at a later date. Try not to be so mean (I know the calls are annoying) these people are just doing their jobs, which is not fun in the first place. They basically mislead us about the content, pay and requirements of the job and that's why I will be quitting and looking for another by the end of the week and reporting them to the BBB and the U.S. Dept. of Labor. Receptionist job my a&*.
Have a great day
Vehicle warranty telemarketing sales.
I have been getting this same phone call now for the past 4 weeks, although it shows a different phone number on caller ID. This time it was a automated call that said this is ‘Consumer Services’ that I needto update my credit card rates. That I need to act now by pressing 1. This was my last chance. I did some research on the phone number it is a discontinued number for a Pensacola, FL business thereby making any complaint useless. Last week it was a Fort Lauderdale, Fl discontinued number again making any complaints useless.
called Id said Pensacola Florida-no message left but when I redialed it said this number was disconnected. Number displayed was 850-456-1207 3:03 pm.
received calls from this number 850-456-1207. Don't know who it is so I didn't answer the calls.
It's a recording about lowering an interest rate on credit card debt. I push "1" to speak with a live person and then the phone disconnects me after a few moments. I'm like a dog with a bone, I will be getting to the bottom of this! : )
Got a call today from this number....funny thing is I got a call yesterday from 954-689-7681 with the same sales pitch about reducing credit card interst rates....this is a SCAM do not press 9 to remove your name...they aren't removing it....
Caller ID said Pensacola, FL. Did not answer. I am on the Do Not Call list. I guess that doesn't really work.
Called at 10:00 am.
Did not leave a message.
When I called the number right back, it said that it had been disconnected.
Pensacola,FL 850-456-1207 on caller id...didn't answer...no message left...they hung up
(850)456-1207 is a disconnected number, so they are not calling from there. These tricksters are obviously faking the caller ID information so that the origin of their calls cannot be detected. This is called "caller ID spoofing," and it is becoming popular (look it up on wikipedia.)
Ignore the caller ID information. Martin McManus is probably a victim in this too. Imagine the number of people who are calling. He has probably been forced to change his number.
I am on the Do Not Call list. When they called me, it was about credit card interest rates, but they seem to calling others with a variety of pitches. This is illegal telemarketing calls at a minimum, but it could be worse - a scam to get you to reveal your information over the phone so that your identity can be stolen.
Caller ID said Pensacola, FL. Answered on second ring. Fast-talking woman (recording?) talked about reducing indebtedness; refinancing; some such thing. Asked to wait to speak with a representative; no one came on the phone and was eventually disconnected. Called number back 2X; recording says number is discontinued/disconnected. Google search indicates number is for Martin McManus.
I didn't answer, no message left.
No message left.
I tried to call the number back, but I got a "phone number is no longer in service or has been disconnected" message from the operator.
tried to call number back says disconnected or no longer in service
Lets Repost that, I didnt answer it and when i called it back it said no such number.
Called at 12:45 and left no message.
Same thing as many others have said did answer it then i called it back on the cell said it was disconnected. Stupid...
i had this message and when i called back it said out of service
get calls all the time. let my machune pick up. what is most annoying is that it leaves a busy tone that takes up about 5 minutes of my machine.
also long recorded intro, press 1 to speak to live operator, you must want to consolidate your credit card debt which must be > $5K. "we have an agreement with all the major credit cards". When I informed the operator that I'm on the do not call list I heard typing in the background and got cut off.
"Urgent" call about my credit card. "Very important" that I call back right away.
Trying to trick me into thinking that they are calling from my credit card company. Bastards. Should be illegal. Oh that's right, it is. Double bastards.
Precorded message from Lisa with Cancun Vacation Center. Caller ID showed came from Pensecola FL
Answered just as answering machine picked up call. Caller hung up. Caller I.D. number. Called Number less than a minute later and got messaage that I reached a number that had been disconnected.
I got a call from this number, they left no message. When I called it back it said that it was no longer in service. I'm on the Do not Call list!! How does this happen?
I recieved a call from 850-456-1207 and they were selling vacations in Cancun, Orlando, FL and Daytona, FL.
call as mc manus , martin no answer
Second time they called. I am on the do not call list and my number is unlisted. When I try to tell them I'm on the DNC list, they hang up immediately. The message claims I have credit card debt of $2000 and I must talk to them immediately. I am debt free. This time I got a name and an address: Card Holder, PO Box State Row 7, Pensacola, Fl. When I asked for the zip code, she wouldn't give it me. Asked if I was $50,000 in credit card debt. I said no, she hung up. Have reported them to the DNC list twice.
Received call from this number. 3 rings, no message. We are on the National No-Call List. This outfit is in federal violation.
Definitely not interested.
Caller ID: unknown
Number on ID: 850-456-1207
Did not answer - do not answer calls that I do not know the number if unidentified.
Will be reporting to DNC List
I've been getting calls from Pensacola, FL at least once a week if not more for over two months. Don't answer calls, and they usually don't leave a message ubt if they do its some credit card scam or auto warranty scam. Just moved to new address in March and my Do not call for state and federal does not go into effect until July.
Cuts into message on ans mach. Final offer for low interest rate. Dunno what kind of loan they're referring to. Says press 1 to hear this special offer or 2 to be removed. 2nd call in a week. Reporting them to Do Not Call website.
Showed up Pensacola, Fl on caller ID. I wasn't home. They left no message!
Called me twice. I didn't answer. Says NO CALLER ID when calling - number shown only.
850-456-1207 reported disconnected. Based on another post here, I called 800-831-7668, spoke to manager Chris. When confronted with the 850-456-1207 number he didn't disagree. He said a nonprofit organization was making the calls:
346 Fair Oaks St.
San Francisco, CA 94146
He refused to give me their number.
was on my Caller ID
googled comes up Martin McManus. Caller ID reads Florida.
Caller ID says Credit Rate Off, they left a ludicrous offer for a $99 Florida trip on my answering machine.
have received several calls from this number. it registered pensacola, fl. - no message.
Got a call from this # today @ 11:48 a.m. Don't know this number, didn't answer, didn't leave a message.
Financial services message. Crappy junk call. Didn't answer. I'm on the no call list.
Don't bother to answer calls from this number.
Caller ID said "Pensacola, FL"; recording said it was CardMember Services and that everything was okay with my account, but they needed to talk to me about consoldating my debt. The first time they called, I pressed the button for "do not call again." Second time, I pressed "1" for speak to an operator about consolidating my debt. Operator asked me if I pressed "1" so I could consolodate my debt. I asked what company she was with - Cardmember Services (with whom we do have an account). I said that they were not supposed to solicit from me, and she hung up immediately.
They called at 1:40 PM EST and I didn't answer. They didn't leave a message and when I called back, I get a message saying "we're sorry. you have reached a number that has been disconnected or is no longer in service". I think it's like spoofing email addresses. They just pull dead numbers to put in the caller ID so no one can trace the calls back to the telemarketers/scammers.
Automated voice call identifying themselves as Cardholder Services. I hung up and didn't hear all the recorded message.
Caller ID Pensacola, FL. Did not answer, no message left by caller.
They said something about Cancun. I didn't think and hung up. I am on the Do Not Call List.
Card Holder Services
Called at 2:11pm EST
Registered as Unknown Name on callerID.
Long automated message about being selected for Credit Card consoladation and press 1 to talk to live rep. Once rep came on, I asked if "Card Holder Services" was there official company name. She ignored me and asked if I had $5,000 or more in debt. When I said answer my question first, she hung up. Tried to call the number back and came up as a disconnected number.
I am on the DNC registry and reporting them now.

Some kind of telemarketing scheme selling dirt cheap vacations.
Martin Mc Manus (850) 456-1207 15 Pen Haven Dr, Pensacola, FL 32506
I'm in MA. I got a call on 5/23 at 12:12pm. It was a message saying that they had important information about my credit accounts.
Was called from 8504561207 and no one was on the line. I returned the call and get recording that the number has been disconnected.
Caller ID showed a call from Pensacola, FL (850)456-1207 - I didn't answer
Called at 10:58 on May 23. I was asked if I had more than $2,500 of credit card debt. I asked to be sent a copy of their "Do Not Call" policy, as I am entitled to under federal law. The operator said, "And you can shove it up your fat ass", then hung up.
Got a call at 11 AM did not answer. When I called back the number it was disconnected....probably a scammer
I answered...they didn't.

Caller ID says Pensacola, FL. They didn't leave a message on my answering machine.
received call today in Rhode Island - left a message "it is urgent you contact us as your eligability to receive low rate is expiring." I just filled out an online survey from Walmart last week. Is Walmart selling lists now or just a coincidence?
they did not leave a message.
A recorded message about consolidating debt. I pressed 1 and waited through a song. Then some woman wanted my name. I told her nobody from this number had ever called that number. Then she said something else that I couldn't understand. Heavy accent. I asked her if she spoke English and she said, "A little". That's when I hung up.
There is now a recording saying this number is disconnected
This past week I have been getting the strangest numbers calling me. And I love this website because then I can find out who it is. This number just called a few minutes ago. It said Pensacola, FL I didn't answer, they lleft no message. I reported it to the do not call registry.

Caller ID said Pensacola, Florida. Did not answer. No message. Online search said Martin McManus.

Recorded message. Something about lowering interest rates. P l e a s e.
I am on the "do not call" list and this is the second call in one day from these telemarketers.
Been receiving calls from this number id pensacola, florida, and tried calling back and it said that the number was disconnected or no longer in service. I called the 1800 number that MikeI put on here. Karen answerd the phone and I told her that the authorities have been contacted and she hung up on me and havent recieved a call since. My number was blocked from them seeing it. This happen to anyone else lately this week?

Got a recorded telemarketing msg about debt consolidation or some such business. Caller id says "Pensacola, FL". I have no prior relationship with these scoundrels and I'm on DNC list, so I'm gonna report it.
Caller ID said name unknow. Voice message said Consumer Services calling to offer a lower interest rate.
caller id said pensacola fl, automated message about warranty services. hung up!
they identified themselves as a debt consolidation company and could not say how they got my number. I am on the DONOTCALL registry...a lot of good that does...
Had two calls from these jerks! Caller ID says "Pensecola, FL". No message. They hang up as the answer machine kicks in. Will AGAIN report to Do Not Call.
I found this on my caller ID today. No message left on answering machine. I had information on my DOB, SSAN, Credit Card info, and home address stolen from my day planner while at a funeral visitation 3 days ago, (3/7/2007). The address that comes up on google for this number is close to the location where my stuff was stolen. I live in another state and was only in PCola for about 2 hours. I think this person is fishing for more information. When I called the number back I got the phone company message that the number is disconnected. I don't know anyone else in PCola and have never been there before. I think this caller has my stuff. I am filling out a police report tomorrow and will include this information.

I asked the name of the company was told "Cardholder Services" when I asked where they were located the guy hung up on me. I called the number back and it said disconnected. I do not understand how it can say disconnected when they called from the number

No msg left, caller ID said "Florida Call" - glad I checked here, I was afraid something happened to a dear friend in Pensacola! YIKES
Phone call received. No one answered when picked up phone. Did Google and found this site.
Caller ID showed Unknown Name. Did not answer. Msg left on voicemail was something to do with credit card services.
these stupid sob's call me EVERYDAY! soometimes 2 and 3 times a day! i cant believe this!!
Taped message asks caller to press 9 to hear more about Cancun vacation offer. When I asked a live operator the name of company, he hung up. I'm o DNC - reporting number.
Chalk up another annoyed person. Called me today at 9:37 am, 5/9/07. I got the automated message about my car warranty expiring, and I hung up, Reported the number to Donotcall and reupped my 5-year Donotcall registration while I was there.
recorded spiel on cheap vacation to Orlando. Pressed 9 to speak to a "live" rep. He answered and asked if I was interested in a vacation. I said, no, this number is on the do not call registry. He immediately hung up
recieved a call from card services financial. The man claimed he could lower current interest rate on my credit cards. He has my card numbers and my social security number.
This one, more annoying than most, sounds to me like scam, phishing identity theft under guise of consolidate debt - transfer balances. I just received THREE automated calls (I'm in CA) in a half hour - identify themselves as "united card services" with "urgent message regarding your account". I'm on DNC registry.
Needs to follow NO CALL LIST Rules!
the dope head from this number called here today also, did not answer, no message left either!!
Caller ID was simply out of area with the number, didn't answer didn't leave message
I'm from Louisiana, got the same call on 05/08/07 @ 1248. I've heard of a scam like this! this is a jail house scam!!! They are calling you from a collect phone number. When they ask you to press #9, it gives them access to your long distance carrier(if you have one) BEWARE!!!!!I am a Law Enforcement Officer. Thanks
Did not leave a message...scared me because my elderly father lives near Pensacola. When I dialed the number back, recording stated this number was no longer in service.
I didn't answer & they didn't leave a message.
I've been on the do not call list for years. I wonder where they got my number and am curious how to find the address since the google address is false and this is a scam
Long recorded message followed by exceedingly rude live male agent, replying: "Tough!", when informed my number was on the Texas & National Do Not Call List.
- received automated call offering reduced rates. "cardholder services". No clue what company. recording was about 1 minute in legth. no phone number.
- pressed 1 to speak to operator, on hold about 1/2 minute
- expressed my displeasure with having my time wasted when theirs wasn't, asked to speak to manager when they couldn't tell me who placed the call
- manager got on pretty quickly (< 1min)
- manager did not identify themselves
- manager said it was an automated dialer and there is no number for me to call
- confirmed my number and said she would remove me from their list
- HUNG UP ON ME while I was speaking
- *69 reported 850-456-1207
- residential phonebook shows Martin McManus
15 Pen Haven Dr
Pensacola, FL 32506
- place long distance call to 850 456 1207
- rung once, recieved busy signal after that
- called again, rang a few times, got operator "this number has been disconnected"
- more googling, found switchboard.com has a Martin McManus at same address as the original number, but with (850) 549 3157
- called that number
- rang 4 times, answered with static in background for about 1 second, long beep (like for a voice mail), waited a while, "Thank you for your call" and hangup
Left no message, has called 2 other times previously today and in the past as well.
Picked up phone without checking phone number because we have family in Pensacola. Nothing but silence on other end
No message left, and can not call the number back (number disconnected). this is a fake caller ID. Skip it.
Have started to receive calls from this party.
Something about extending my vehicle warranty.
I've just acquired the car from my sisters estate.
I've been unable to answer the calls because I'm not home when the calls come through.
Should they call again and I'm home, I have a list of questions to ask (what model and make, when was the car purchased).
This could be fun.
called again today. no one there, then they hung up. called this number back and it says it is a disconnected number.
Recorded message - I hit whatever key transferred me to an operator. Spoke to Jennifer who said she was from Consumer Services in Talahassee, FL. I mentioned that they were violating the do not call list, and asked to speak to a supervisor. Was told that none were available and I requested that I be placed on hold until one was. Thirty seconds later, they hung up. I'm putting in a report on donotcall.gov, and would encourage that everyone else receiving calls do this too.
Just received a call from 850-456-1207. No response after I answered; assume that they're using a predictive dialer and VOIP dial-up connections, so also assume that the CallerID is spoofed, so reporting to the FTC is most likely fairly useless.
Didnt answer, no message. I'm on the DNC list and will report this
Caller id says 1-850-456-1207 is calling, and it is from FLORIDA. Whn I call back it says "disconnected". Today is May7.
spam to reduce interest loans, do not answer this call.
Didn't answer, but person left no message. Did a Google search on phone #, which shows the following:
15 Pen Haven Dr, Pensacola, FL 32506
I received a annoying telemarketing call offering credit card consolidation services at 10:00 AM on 5/7/2007. I am on the National Do Not Call Registry. I have reported this company to them accordingly.
Came up Unavailable, said, "This is Rachel from cardholder services, there is nothing wrong with your current credit card but it is urgent that you contact us, regarding your current interest rate" Asked me to press 1 to talk to a person about credit card services, or 3 to be taken off their list. If you press 3, it doesn't work. This isn't the first time they've called me, so I pressed 1. I got Terrance who asked said he could help me if I was $5,000 in debt. I let him talk for a while, and then acted like my call waiting went off, and asked him if I could call him right back because my parents were on the other line. He immediatley hung up. Next time they call, I'm going to try to keep them on the phone as long as possible, so at least they aren't harassing anyone else. Maybe I'll give them a bunch of fake info, since they are calling from a fake number, as I'm on the do not call list!
Caller ID read FLORIDA. I didn't answer and they hung up in the middle of the message - added them to my zap list
Pensacola, FL showed up on caller ID. I am on DNC list.
Computer generated call soliciting for credit-card debt consolidation. Press '1' for an operator, or '2' to be removed - I hung up. Will report to FTC.
no message left. Pensacola, FL. Thanks for this whocalled us service!
I answered the phone at 6:38 p.m. and listened to a recorded message stating that I had a deadline to reduce my credit card interest rates. The male voice did not give the company name, but gave me the option to press 1 to speak with someone or press 2 to be removed. I hung up because as I answered the phone I was doing dishes, and to top it off I stepped into my cat's water bowl and I had cleanup to do. I have excellent credit and don't carry any CC balances, so I assume a scam.
Got called too. Asked for me, told them I wasn't home. Told me they would call back later. Better not. This is the thrid time they called. Florida better do something!
Called about some extended warraty; pressed 9 to be "removed" from call list. Concerned this is a scam and pressed 9 to activate something. Waiting ...
got the call today in washington state from this number, WTF I am on the do not call list also!
I put a Telezapper on my landline telephones. The telezapper sends a set to tones to computers that dial your phone; those tones tell the computer that the number it dialed does not exist. I cut my telemarketer calls to a fraction of what they were. I have not yet tried it on my voip. telephones.
The last several weeks many times thru the wk. I get 1st a call, out of area, no msg, followed within a half hour, the FL #, no msg left. later in the day, out of area call with all 999 #'s followed by unavailable calls, each time with diff. 800 #'s. Reported all the calls to DNC list but think it does no good. Wish there was a way to stop it all.
no message left
Auto recording of some interest rate gimick. This was a place of business so I hung up.
recording from card services, can get lower rate if at least $2,500 in charges.
repoted to do not call list.
Caller ID asys Pensacola, FL. This is not the first time they have called. The other two times I told them not to call again. I answered and got a long winded intro. I pushed 1 to talk to a live person... Than screamed as loud as I could into the receiver. Maybe they will not call back again.
Got the same call, something about extended car warranty. My cars 12 yrs old. Sounds like a scam to get your credit card # to me. Reported them to the DNC list and the FTC.
Recorded message at first about some kind of Credit Card services. It said to call some 800 number later, or press 1 now for live operator, otherwise press 3 to be removed from call list. I pressed 1 and after being on hold for about five minutes got some bozo. I asked him the name of his organization, he said, "Card Order Service." I asked the address. He wouldn't give it to me beyond "Southern Florida." I told him I was filing a complaint with the FTC because they are in violation of the Federal "do not call" list. He stayed on script and answered all my angry objections with "We are trying to help you consolidate credit card debt."
I got a call from the same number/name on May 2nd, he must have been busy that day. He left no message, just searched the number online and it came up as Martin McManus in Pensacola, FL. I am on the do not call list as well!
caller id said pensacola fl i didnt answer the phone and they didnt leave a message

I got this information from the Michigan Attorney General's website...
THIEVES CHOOSE NUMBER THEY WANT TO APPEAR ON CALLER ID
Technology available for purchase on the Internet allows crooks to use a fake caller ID to make bogus phone calls look like they are coming from a legitimate and trustworthy source to gain access to a victim's valuable personal information.
False caller ID numbers have been reported in connection with fraudulent calls claiming the potential victim missed jury duty and to avoid arrest or a fine must "verify" their Social Security number or other personal information. The calls may seem legitimate because the telephone number of the local courthouse shows up on the caller ID.
A Google search showed this number at the address of 15 Pen Haven Dr, Pensacola, FL 32506.
People have learned how to send fake caller IDs. It's called Spoofing.
I can't imagine a boiler room criminal allowing their real land-line number to be displayed on caller ID.
Caller ID said Pensacola, FL they didn't leave a message. I am on the DNC list
I got a call from this number and they left no message and I tried it back and it said that it was no longer in service. I have received thses calls for a few days and I'm on the Do not Call list!! I filled a report
message on my answering machine offered rate reduction-press 1 to accept, press 2 to remove. Of course I can't do that from a voicemail message! I am also on the "do not call" list as are so many others I see reporting this same nuisance. I plan to report this number.
Identified themselves as Warranty specialists and when I asked them for their company address, they ask "why?" I said so I can document our conversation - she asked "Why?" I said if we are going to do business, I need to document what we discussed. she then hung on me. She identified herself as "Julia"
Recording said it was jonathan calling about lowering the interest rates on my credit cards (didn't state a company). Press 1 to continue or 2 to be removed. I just hung up. Actual credit card companies are required to by the federal law (TCPA) to state 1st & last name, where calling from, reason for the call, and a phone number to reach them.
I had the same experience today. Answered the phone (had to, working from home today). No one/nothing at the other end.
pensacola on ID. no message. google showed martin mcmanus
Caller ID stated unknown name. Gave phone number of 850-456-1207. Did not answer the phone. No message left. I am on the National Do Not Call list. Reported call to FTC.
Recording on answering machine - no identification of the company just press 9 to extend a warranty - no information of what warranty. Am on the DNC list.
I got a call too. Boiler room set up. Their are suppose to call back. Tell them to take a hike. As long as you don't give them your card # because they already have your name and number. Going to report them to the Feds -trade comm.
Same stuff, went to switchboard.com, his phone number is 850-459-3157
Caller ID says Penscola, FL, called number, recording states not a working number. GET A REAL JOB
Received the call yesterday...funny thing how these are all coming up around the same date. Seems like a scam to me too. I am also on the DNC list. Someone needs to stop this person....
I got a call from Martin McManus at 850-456-1207 today (5/3/2007). Best for him to stop calling, or he may find himself in jail for what he is doing. Also, I'm on the Do Not Call List, which means that I can't get calls from anyone like him.
no message ... just filed a complaint with donotcall
Was called by this number. They left a message about reducing credit card interest. Phone # on caller ID 850-456-1207

Guess it's the corner house
Something about auto warranty. I selected 1 to speak with a specialist and then was given the option to select 2 to be removed from the call list... we'll see.
call back says number has been disconnected
I wonder, is anyone dumb enough to give this bunch of crooks their personal information or credit card numbers?
recorded caller said warranty on my car was about to expire, press 9 to keep the coverage. My car is 10 years old, warranty ran out a long time ago. Wonder what I would hear if I pressed 9. Would never do as then they would have my number for sure. Think this is a quick way to get around the tele marketing phone block I have.
This is the 3rd automated call I've received from this company. I've filed complaints at the do not call list, but I wonder if they'll really do something.
same thing -i'm killing this
Didn't answer, no message left.
Phone harassment occurred on 5/1/07 at 7:40 pm
No message left. No name on caller ID, just the number. Googled and got Martin McManus.
No msg. left.
We saw the number on our caller id. I called it back and it came up that it was disconnected. We googled the number and it came up Martin McManus.
Caller ID shows McManus, Martin. I didn't answer or plan to.
Computer dialed call from 850-456-1207. Credit card services. When I dialed -8504561207, the number rang once then was switched to another line; the other line picked up with a "this number is no longer in service" message...legitimate telemarketer (if there is such an animal) or scam working? Reported on do not call web--not that will do any good.
I am on the "do not call" list yet people in florida haven't gotten the hint or they are using the list to get phone numbers from. this one calling about my car care warranty that I do not have.
I just received a call from this number about an hour ago. I Googled it and it came up Martin McManus, from Pensacola, FL. I didn't answer, and they didn't leave a message.
I'm shocked to see that others receievd it so recently as well!
I am also on the DNC list so if they call again and they are soliciting anything, I'm reporting them...
