This number does not belong to me and telephone carrier XO has failed to help me in any useful way. Since I haven't received the call from this number, I lack the details needed to file a complaint to FCC.

I request that if you receive the call from this telemarketer with my name on caller id, please file a complaint to FCC using Form 1088 on their website. I have included relevant links below:

They call 4-5 times per week. Never leave message. I'm filing with FTC.

Spam call. Caller ID shows as Desslox Gamalon (seems awfully similar to the video game character desslok gamelan) Called twice on 6/27/13. 11:45 AM and 3:55 PM left no message. Called back was immediately connected to a live person. "Mortgage Solutions" they were going "immediately reduce my interest rate over $300 a month." Wanted to ask me 'some questions' the first of which was "is your current interest rate over 4.5%". Answered it was not, the person kept trying to get me to reanswer the question. I hung up.

May 30th, 2013 Matt Bieneman MD

Caller ID said "Unknown caller" with no phone number. The voice mail system gave the above the above phone number, but they left a blank message. So the scammer is obviously doing something to hide their phone number. This same scammer has called more than a dozen times. They also called yesterday, with the exact same M.O., but they left a message with the word "hello" repeated over and over again, as is their usual practice.

May 2nd, 2013 DirtyEd PA

Didn't talk. The number is now in my computer program PhoneTray which will answer this number the next time they call, give them a piece of my mind, and hang up. All that's needed is a Fax/Data/Voice/CallerID modem and the program. Check it out at: www.phonetray.com

April 30th, 2013 Matt Bieneman MD

Two more calls from the same scammer today. A blank message and another message with "Hello." "Hello." "Hello." This website has a bug that doesn't take more than one scam call per day from the same scammer, so one is reported for tomorrow. Some scammers have called as many as seven times in the same day. This one is more polite and has called a maximum of twice per day.

April 24th, 2013 duke jjohnson VA

they are leechs trying lick my balls

April 23rd, 2013 Matt Bieneman MD

This is some kind of "mortgage refinance" scam. They have called more than a dozen times. They block the caller ID info, as any good scammer should, but when I am not home, the voicemail kicks in and it records the number. The either leave a blank message, or messages with "huh"; one time they left a message that was "hello" repeated about six or seven times.

April 12th, 2013 Henk MD

Had to do a *69 to even find out what the number was, they had it spoofed on caller ID. Once I looked up my outgoing calls online I saw the last 10 numbers of the call record were the actual phone numbers. A wireless number. Swingbag Mutton-breathed, zinc-trumpet playing a$$hat$

April 4th, 2013 MD

Caller is silent - left 2 voicemails. Sounded like a call center from the background noise.

March 7th, 2013 Shlomo VA

Got a call from 4435247375 about my mortgage. When I called the number back it rang endlessly. Could this be the same group out of Boca Raton, Florida that the website "Heather with Account Services" talks about? These scammers have used dozens of company names and use a loophole in Florida law to spoof caller id answering machines so that the public can't identify the caller.

February 27th, 2013 De Hat VA

Calling from Mortgage Solutions about refinancing my mortgage. I told them I did not refinance, and BTW, you are violating the Do Not Call list because I do not have a business relationship with you, put me on your do not call list or i will contact the FTC.

Agree that it's probably an international exchange, based on some link data for the IBFA Acquisitions thingy. If you want to call a relevant number that DOES answer - try this one, from the law firm that submitted their application to the FCC:

"IBFA Acquisition Company LLC, by its undersigned attorneys, hereby submits its 2009 CPNI Compliance Certificate and Accompanying Statement certifying compliance with Section 64.2001 et seq. of the Commission�s rules.
Please contact the undersigned should you have any questions or concerns at (269) 381-8893 extension 226 or patrick@crockerlawfirm.com."

Above details from this page:


According to that page, the company isn't going to violate FCC rules about customer's proprietary info (i.e., phone numbers)! Leave that law firm a message that you don't like being called by this fraudulent company!

I was email spammed to buy a penny stock in a company call UNILAVA, which has a subsidiary called TELAVA that acquired IBFA Acquisition Company, LLC (see below). As part of my due diligence, I ran across this site regarding some questionable activities by IBFA.

These kind of companies behind multiple layers of companies to continue their questionable activities. Thanks for reporting your experiences here. While this may not be considered as a fraud and scam, trustworthy firms do not operate in this manner and it is not a company I would chose to invest in.

Thanks all of you for posting. Below is the SEC documentation and website I referred to above.


On January 16, 2008, Telava Acquisitions Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Telava, announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire IBFA Acquisition Company, LLC (IBFA).


March 1st, 2010 Debra

No answer. Probably a predictive dialer. Since we're on a do not call list I'm ticked.

A lot of these bogus/random numbers are set up to random dial numbers. They have robots doing this to "discover" usable (live) and/or "dead" (disconnected, voicemails, etc....worthless) numbers.

Once they realize your number is "live" they will keep calling until you opt out.

June 16th, 2009 Mike

Mortgage Solutions, calling either every day or every other day.

Incoming Caller ID is 800-934-5213 or 866-258-4395

Today I got a call with the 866-258-4395 caller id, and it was Dept Pros on the message, press 1, then Debt Services, then transfer to a closer and it's Debt Remedy Solutions.

Ben GreenGlass(not sure of the last name) gave me his direct line as 1-561-961-7227 or you can call him at 1-888-961-7292 x 7227.

The numbers are registered in Boca Raton, Florida.

Got the "Message from our president" recording. This company has called me three times in the last twenty minutes. They are relentless. They only identify themselves as "Mortgage solutions". You can get no information from them, if you ask any questions they just hang up. Caller I.D. is spoofed. Comes back as an invalid #. These are scammers and they need to be stopped.

June 13th, 2009 bj AZ

June 11th, 2009 Melissa FL

Obama Recording for mortgage programs. Pressed 1 to try and get taken off phone list and the SOB actually told me he loved me, asked if I was single and when asked who his company was, said it was "Bob's Baked Beans". Also told him I was going to track him down through this service and his reponse was "good luck". I think we have hit a new low in the telemarketing world and would love to know who this company is...

If anyone else out there is getting the recording of OBAMA & MORTGAGE (which I'm sure you are > > Here is what we need to do to stop it because these calls are not going to stop coming unless they are addressed. These calls are from hackers. At the same time, these calls did not start until OBAMA was elected President ( Lord forbid ) & it's not making him look any better or making him look good either (even if he wasn't voted for, just worse).

Here's what to do > > Go to Obama.com
It will come up somewhere on the page "CONTACT US" go there
Once you have gotten into the website of contacting him > > write down his FAX #
then take the time to let him know "bluntly" {if you are this type} we didn't start receiveing these messages until he became President. Now it is affecting our jobs, interfering with important calls @ work as well as at home with the phones starting to ring off the wall INFORMING him , it doesn't matter what button you push to get them to stop calling, they just call you back in triple.
FAX HIM, E-mail him or both but the fax will get to him sooner than anything. I KNOW I HAVE & MINE WAS SENT AS FAX!!

May 14th, 2009 Natalie CA

I just got a call from this number at 4:11. I think it's a bogus number that's set up to get charges added to your cell phone somehow. Look up Snopes.com. There's something on there about random numbers calling cell phones.

May 14th, 2009 Allen

This number called my cell today around 4:15 p.m. and did not leave a message. I looked it up and it's the Philadelphia, Pa. area. I live in Key West, Florida and this is the first time I have recieved a call from this number.

May 13th, 2009 Pat IL

I just got a call from this number first was a recording about Pres.Obama's mortgage assistance program then if you press 1 and say you are interested a person answers and I asked what company they were with just said mortgage services and I wanted an explanation about what they do and she said they gather all informatin then give it to another company! Beware!!

May 13th, 2009 grrr

called my cell & didn't leave a VM. I'm tired of these calls.

May 13th, 2009 ike VA

called my work number in DC but I didn't pick up.

May 13th, 2009 pissed NC

Mortgage Services is supposedly based in Southern California, but Area Code 267 is from Pennsylvannia. "Eddie," the schmuck who took the call after three minutes of waiting, refused to say where in "Southern California" he is from, refused to connect me with a supervisor and refused to even acknowledge he made the call -- "A computer made the call," this genius said. Called the number back, and the only option available was to remove my number from its computer bank.

Anyone else who gets this number, do as I am about to do -- call the Better Business Bureau and Federal Trade Commission.

May 12th, 2009 M.C. MO

I really don't like getting calls from unknown numbers on my cell phone. I live in TN got a call from this number tonight and they didn't leave a message. Looked up the number and its a Philadelphia area code. I know absolutely no one in Philadelphia.

May 8th, 2009 POed

I just added this cell number (along with my home #) to the Do Not Call Registry this week because of the "warranty" and other calls I've been receiving. This is a new 'nonsense' caller...makes me wonder if there's someone at the Do Not Call Registry playing games??? Either way, they should be tracked, by either the phone company or authorities, and penalized-

May 7th, 2009 Anonymous FL

Yep, called me just now 8:07 pm May 6th. Left a voice mail, dunno what it is though b/c I forgot the pw to it :p

May 6th, 2009 bri MN

called my cell today

May 6th, 2009 verizon user

This number, 267-298-2093, called me last night (5/5/09) as I was walking out of the grocery store. I called it back right away & for the first time got through. I had to press "1" in order to have my cell phone number put on their do not call list. That irks me because they should never have had my cell number to begin with. I bought my cell for emergencies only so only friends/family have my number. When is something going to be done about this form of harassment? They also call my home phone. That number is on the do not call registry. Why are they allowed to call me just for me to press "1" to be put on THEIR do not call list? Obviously if I'm already on the registry that means do not call. They use many numbers. I have 5 different ones on my house phone & 4 on my cell.

May 4th, 2009 anon123 VA

at first sounded like a message about President Obama - listened longer and sounded more like a recording about mortgage rates/information that referenced some legislation the President supports. Despite the seemingly political nature of the ad, and the lack of any actual information, the call 1) reminded me of the "Factory Warranty on your vehicle" calls towards the end, stating that this was "your notice" re. mortgage something-or-other. 2) had two options at the end, press 1 for more info, press 2 to be removed from the list. 3) call came to a cell phone (T-Mobile subscriber) 4) I don't have a mortgage Scam? Annoyance? Really bad attempt at political robocall?

April 30th, 2009 Jason TN

Looked up the area code for this phone number and it comes from Philadelphia, PA. Didn't pick up though....too busy with chores. Must be a scam.

April 30th, 2009 Dave

The automated message says they are a mortgage company and want to help you fix your mortgage with help from the Obama Administration. It then tells you to press 1 for help and 2 to be deleted from the call list. Since I don't have a mortgage, I just hung up. Definitely makes me think this is a scam.

April 23rd, 2009 Me GA

This number has been calling my 10 yr old daughters cellphone. I know she hasn't bought a car, and she just got this phone (not even a month ago). I tried to call it back and it says it's not a working number. Luckily my daughter listens to me when I tell her NOT to answer calls from numbers not stored in her phone, so she comes and tells me of a strange number calling - which led me here. Hopefully this company is smart enough to research about any complaints, and will see these comments - along with mine stating that I will be the one to answer next time they call, and will tell them to remove the number. If it doesn't stop - I WILL file a complaint.

April 22nd, 2009 s

They say they're from Warranty Solutions and got my cell phone number (that I've had only a few months) from a car dealer. But, I haven't been to a car dealer in years! They've been harrassing me for months. I've asked nicely to be removed from their list (and am on the Do Not Call List) and have asked angrily -- nothing seems to work. When I ask who they are, where they are located, or ask to talk to a supervisor, they hang up on me. They just can't figure out that I'm not going to fall for their scam.

April 19th, 2009 lil bit VA

i don't know who they are! I don't answer the phone all they do is call and then call some more. So you know what you can keep calling don't mean that i'm going to answer it!!!

This robo caller said they were a company called Debt Services. I pressed the number 1 and spoke to a live person who asked if I wanted more information about Debt Management. I replied by asking to be removed from their list. Definite Scam.

Telemarketing caller who wants to sell a health card. This is what the Texas attorney general has to say about them.

The lawsuit, filed under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, alleges numerous acts of deception by Family Health and Family Care/NAPP, both of Houston. Internet, fax and telemarketing promotions by the companies claim they can lower a participating member’s medical expenses by up to 80 percent, but consumers complain they never see such savings.

They call me about my timeshare and selling it. Caller ID comes up unknown name unknown number. Yesterday I decided to talk with them found out it was Ron from Location Properties Trailer. When I was tired talking to him and going in circles I hung up. He called right back and I didn't answer. He called back a minute later and my husband answered and told him to go to hell and not call back. We will see what happens today.

This number is showing on our caller ID at a branch office, they curse at our employees and say they are a collection agency for an online lending website. This location forwarded the calling information to our corporate location, and I am currently working on blocking that number from future calls. Not very nice people. The Number does show as 214-586-0999. I called it, somebody picked up, but wouldn't speak and I could hear noise and talking in the background, after several minutes of saying hello, I hung up.

This number is used as a caller ID by the Skype Internet Phone Service. If someone calls your phone number from Skype this will be displayed on your phone. The calls can originate from anywhere in the world...

I have been using Skype for years and previously the caller ID within the United States would be (000) 012-3456 or 'Out of Area'.

Today was the first time I had seen (214) 586-0999 so I called it back and was put on hold with some techno music. I stayed on the line and was eventually dumped into a massive conference call. Like one of those old party lines except with people all over North America.

My rule of of thumb when I get calls from numbers I do not know is to let it go to voice mail. If it's someone you know or a legitimate call, they will leave a message!!

I use skype and my number sometimes shows up as 214 586 0999. i know when it happens because people alway ask - where are you calling from?!?!

May 29th, 2008 Kim GA

Well, my car got broken into and I had a bunch of stuff stolen including my phone.
I got a new phone and this morning around 7:45am I got a call from this number and it was some techno music. I waited for about 3 minutes and then hung up. I wonder if there is any relation to my phone getting stolen.

May 28th, 2008 Mr D

Calls from this number can come from a Skype phone. I have a Skype phone and sometimes when I call people, 214-586-0999 shows up (but this is not my Skype phone number). Skype is not designed for caller ID to work properly in the USA.

May 27th, 2008 ginger

it is a skype gateway number for people that call from skype since they dont actually have a phone number.. i got a call today and missed it.. come to find out it was my husband in iraq.

May 26th, 2008 sarah

my boyfriends name can be either male or female, and the man left a message saying that he was the boyfriend. obviously it was someone trying to scam.

May 13th, 2008 NO MORE CALLS PA

Yet another one. I told them not to call if it is for telamarketing, donations, or advertisment etc. The sad thing is, it is an international call and they can be using calling cards so if they get reported it goes to the calling cards and not them. Don't accept anything from these ppl.. it is a scam. Unless you do know someone over sea's who might be using a calling card to call.

May 12th, 2008 G H O TX

This was not the first time we got a call from this number. Always hung up without said anything or leave a message.

May 6th, 2008 beware TX

This phone number is actually from overseas, i can tell by the accent the guy had (think it is in India) and they are actually identity theives, if they call you be very rough and demand to have your name and number removed or it will be taken to higher authority. I did it and the guy said he would in a scared toned, if that does not help I HIGHLY recommend for you to call your telephone company or whatever safety you feel to contact to secure your phoneline and persoanl information.

May 5th, 2008 Joe

Called ID said International, but area code is Dallas, Texas. Never saw a call identified like this before, so I'm betting it is a bogus number. When I answered, the person didn't speak - there was silence. Maybe he pooped his pants.

April 30th, 2008 Donna Irby

They ask to speak to me. They want to send me a medical card and ask for my bank name and account number.
They continue to call through out the day. I can tell they don't speak English.

I just received a call from this number and it was an Indian lady calling telling me that my husband won a 3500.00 government grant. When I asked the lady where she was calling from she said Washington,DC. I then asked why her number was registrating as International and a 214#. She then hung up the phone. This is truly a scam ingnore this number if it is not family like some of the messages below have noted. Thank God that Oprah had a show about this. I was able to pick up the warnings before I knew it.

A lady called... she didn't speak English... and mumbling something. Is this a scamming company or what? I guess I have to call FBI and deal with these assholes...

April 16th, 2008 CapnMac

Call came in 60 seconds after our 'friends' at UNAS(signed) had called.
After reading through this, I think I may know what is up. Myspace has an IM feature that is allied with Skype. Skype could have been hacked (or their users), which would explain the mixed-up calls. Myspace is in the middle of a DDoS, and their IM system may be getting clobbered. This may be where some of the scammers are getting pieces of personal info.
All of which is highly speculative on my part. No message on my machine, and only checked the number since I know about a dozen people with 214 area codes.

April 15th, 2008 Polly TX

A lady has called for the past two days. She knew my name and my husband's name and had a very heavy accent. I could hardly understand her. I told her we had a bad connection and she said...."wait, wait, wait....and I hung up both times. Very Strange. We ARE on a donotcall list, but are listed in the phone book.

April 14th, 2008 oh boy PA

I answered an add in the news paper for english bull dog puppies. Individual claimed he and his wife were on a Christian Mission trip in Africa. He called me to discuss payment and this # came up. I was concerned that I could be scammed out of my money. I looked at the comments and now realize maybe I am. Beware............

April 7th, 2008 WHAT THE TX

Today i got a call from the number on cell. 'cool' dude told me that i won. i said "great!" (sarcasm, i knew it was spam)then he said "So can i talk to Greg" or something like that, i told him "Sure his right here" (pretending to hand the phone to someone else) i said "Hello. Who is this?" And they hung up... Why? I don't know. any who the dude sounded really real like it had background noise and such. he also had breaks in his voice and stuff. now that i remember he also asked me for a mailing address and my credit card number.
Later that day i got another. it was a woman. She asked for credit number to. she then said to list terms and conditions press 1 now. I did. then it hung up on me... So in all. Don't answer the phone if its stupid things like that!!!

April 7th, 2008 Confused TX

Got a call from that number a few minutes ago. It said International on caller ID. I picked up and heard a small far-away beep. I said hello twice then hung up. Also if you get a call from the same number but says other things like Dallas, Tx and such don't answer. They will call you every other minute if you do. Oh and they use skype sometimes. And are mostly fractured English speaking Spaniards.

April 6th, 2008 Bob Lovely CO

This scumbag, who should put a bullet in his own brain, called my 16 year old daughter's cell phone. He claimed, in a thick Hindi accent, to be "Officer Paul Dawson" of the (obviously made - up) "United States National Medical Department of the United States Federal Government". I took the phone and, surprisingly, he continued to talk to me. After claiming my daughter, "due to her paying her taxes on time for several years", (though she is 16) was eligible for free medical care and would receive $500/month for 12 months. Obviously this is where he asked for her bank account information. Are there actually people who fall for this garbage? Please forgive my violent comments, but predatory scum like this need to be thrown off a cliff. How does he expect me to believe his name is "Paul Dawson"? I find this whole thing incredible, including the fact that this piece of human filth can apparently live with himself despite being a worthless sack of ****. He knew my daughter's first and last name, but had an incorrect, and fake sounding, address for her. Weird. "Paul", I hope you read this and cleanse the human race of your worthless self.

Getting the same call almost daily now. Guarantee you it's a pharmacy! John's right, it says..."Please hold while your party is located." Then it plays this killer club music and the music isn't that bad! I just put it on my speaker phone and my entire office smoked a fatty, popped a disco biscuit and broke out the glow sticks! Just kidding...It's 100% SPAM, so watch your ass!

Manuel Bono called from this # claiming that I won $815,950.00 in a lotto from Madrid, Spain. Wants me to send in $1860.00 through Western Union to take care of fees. The call came up International. He will be waiting from now on for the money. Contacted the postal inspectors today for help.

February 17th, 2008 illinois IL

Called 6 times one day , four times the next, then called at midnight followed it up by a call a 7am the next morning. (None answered) Finally got tired of it and called it back to bitch them out only to get the connection message. I immediately hung up. I have heard about some of these being incredibly expensive calls. Once it's placed they charge you extra money. One of my kids did this and I got charged 89.99 for the call. The phone company only refunded 20.00 after I complained. This is scary stuff. I'll be watching for my bill :-(

February 15th, 2008 Kasee

I am an apartment manager with a few tenants from Pakistan. I got a call from the 214-586-0999 number. The man on the phone stated that he was from Pakistan and that he was trying to get in touch with one of my tenants(he stated the tenants name) He asked for my tenants phone number and I refused to give it so he hung up. A minute later I received a call from the same person, except this time it said "Unknown Name, Unknown Number" He gave me a number to give to my tenant to call. It is 00971 502 836 536.. I have no clue what this is, but I don't think it is a scam. I think it is somewhat like a calling card. But I don't know!!

February 15th, 2008 Not_Telling IL

a scammer telling he has money for me, but i have to send him some money so he can get the other money released which he will send me...YEA RIGHT...DOES IT SAY "DUMBASS" as a telephone listing for me??? THINK NOTTTTTTTTTT

February 15th, 2008 Lori NV

This number is from scam artists!! Don't answer it. We filled out information to rent a house listed on Craigslist. The next morning we received an email telling us to send money right away and they would send us keys and documents to a house that we later found out doesn't exist. Now this morning they are constantly calling. We are not answering. The number comes up 214-586-0999 as well as an international number. We have since received three more emails from different people trying to extort money from us. We ALL need to report this immediately to the proper authorities and stop these people. They are from Nigeria and are preying upon innocent people. They do not live in the states. Be careful everyone and DO NOT give them any information.

This number is just a number registered to a jump-off location for international calls. The call could be someone you know or someone you don't know. It could be from a VOIP, Calling Card, Credit Card at a pay phone or even a Cellphone. Ibfa Aquisition Company provides its services to outside companies needing the routing to your phone. They do business like this with companies all over. Think of it like this on a smaller scale when you hit roaming on your cellphone you are connected to a tower that is loaned to your cell service provider but in this case you would take the number of that tower location and provider. Thats the best way I can think to discribe it.

I got a call from this number. It said International on the caller id. I thought it was my friend Danilo and was very worried when they hung up. I picked up and they hung up. I called back and it was a machine saying please hold while i connect your call. Somebody answered but they spoke a diffrent language..Sounded like a construction site or something.

I just filled a prescription yesterday at a Wal-Mart Pharmacy for the first time. Then had three calls on my cell phone just after midnight last night from 2145860999. Several bloggers mentioned pharmacy related calls - the hacker is getting our personal information from the Wal-Mart data base. Wal-Mart is compromised. Probably hacking other data bases too. Credit card scams are huge business involving merchant services. Every time you swipe your credit card the machines they use store your information, and then the data is pulled off the machine and sold off. Glad I didn't use my bank card to pay.

December 31st, 2007 Sandra

Phone rang and I was unable to answer caller id displayed international and when I called number back and received message please wait while your call is connected aprx 10 mins later no call connected, several weeks later a 24 dollar charge from Nigeria appeared on my phone bill. I call this scamming and my phone company will not remove as it shows I made the call to Nigeria (not) I know no one in Nigeria. This is a scam nation.

This is a router # used when somebody tries to call from the PC phone service Skype. You cannot return a call at this number, because it is only a server.. Instead, it will play non-stop techno music.

I got a call from this number 2months ago. It was from a girl in Moscow Russia. At the time she called she was wanting me to send money for visa and airline tickets and I had been talking with her for 2 months or so. I just found out that it is a Russian dating scam to get money from you. No shit? I called the number back the morning she called and got the music and left it at that. I sort of thought it was like an international transfer office of some kind since she said she did not have a phone and would have to go to telegraph office to call me. I just called it back again and someone named Pierre answered. He did not say hello just who is it. I think this Russian dating scam and this number has something to do with each other. I also think this is something big from Russia all the way here. I don't know why cops cannot doing anything about this

December 22nd, 2007 Jennifer TX

Keep getting calls from this number but never home when they call, just says International on the caller ID.

December 11th, 2007 terriseay TX

Okay people here's how this works: The number displayed on Caller ID is IRRELEVANT!!! Means nothing. Anyone can have any number show up on Caller ID. I answered the call because I have Anonymous call block, so when a call comes through with 'UNKNOWN' in the display but there is a number shown, 99% of the time it is a bogus deal so I just screw with them.
This time it was definitley a call from the middle east. The lady asked for me by my maiden name. I figure this was from another one of those online pharmacies trying to sell me drugs since I have had those calls for about 4 years now and I can't get rid of these dot-heads. I just ignore them or hang up on them once I hear the middle eastern accent they hear 'click'

December 11th, 2007 Jennifer CO

November 4th, 2007 Louise TX

My son lives in Alaska and bought a Sears calling card. I live in Texas. He called tonight using this card for the first time. The first two times the phone rang, Caller ID gave this number and the word International. I could hear noise and someone in the background. No one would answer me and then a woman spoke Spanish and hung up. The third time he called, it said unavailable and we were able to talk. I am wondering if this is a scam by routing his calls through this number and if he will be charged a lot for the first times he tried to call.

November 3rd, 2007 Lori TX

This number has called numerous times., somedays numerous times per day- we answer the phone and there is no one there. After a minute the call disconnects. The caller is called "International" on caller ID.

October 30th, 2007 SkypeOut User IL

I'm actually (one) of the callers, but probably not to you! I use SkypeOut telephony service, and one of my friends said I had this caller ID when I called him. So, if you see this number, it could be any SkypeOut telephony user. See www.skype.com

SkypeOut calls usually block caller ID or returns something like 0123456 for it. This phone line must be misconfigured to show the phone number that actually has nothing to do with the person who is really calling you from a computer.

I believe it is in the best interest of the FBI, Homeland Security as well as the general public to investigate the matter of embezzlement fraud . He claims many things including captivity and death of family members , leads people
on into believing that he is going to share a large amount of money. There is a catch . The plot thickens.
Thank You in advance for investigation of this matter:re:Sese Zugulu possible skype phone number 00233-24961-4603 as well as the dallas phone number thanks to the toll free number I provided in a reply e-mail to him in response for his solicitation to transfer funds and for his plans to purchase land for his family in the United States.

October 27th, 2007 Tony John TX

The caller from 2145860999 is strongly suspected of fraud. He made many false claims and has led me on to a trap where I would be subjected to possibly identity theft. It is suspected that he is also using a skype phone as well as
a computer to solicit people. He pretends to be in Gana , when in fact he called my toll free number which indicates that he is operating 20 million dollar plot to get into peoples bank accounts. He wants one to make a photo copy of their identigication in addition to cooberating evidence that will enable him to embezzle others.
