Lovely work, even though i have been lurking around for awhile i have not got around to commenting til now. cheers
Made my day once once more, excellent post..two thumbs up!:)
Came up as Jeremy Kelley. Sounded like in a calling center.
I've been getting repeated hang up calls from this number for the past 2 weeks. I say hello, and there's no one on the line. Finally today a human answered at the other end, claimed she was calling about a past-due balance from AT&T. I went online and found AT&T "customer service" number, worked my way through voicemail hell and finally spoke to a human who confirmed that I had an unpaid balance left over from when I'd canceled my service. Talked to a supervisor, an Indian man named "Nick Angelo" who admitted that this number is for AT&T collections, but refused to give me an explanation as to why AT&T collections would be involved in making hang up calls. "Nick" told me I could call 800-532-7486 on Tuesday to talk with AT&T collections about their harassing calls. I plan to call and speak with a human at AT&T twice for every one call I've gotten from this number. Waste a little of their time for awhile.
calls me 0903 hrs last two days.
I redial user never answers.
these people have called 10 times in the past 25 minutes!! it's driving me nuts!! I answer but no one is ever on the other end...how can I make them stop?
314 sherman ave. panama city, fla.32401 i need to find out if i have a old bill and what the balance is
also at the address with WILLIAM E HAYDEN 177 South St Orangeburg SC is
TRACY H HEWITT 38
For many, many more complaints about this same number, see:
Caller, if WILLIAM E HAYDEN (as often stated) may be contacted at
177 South St, Orangeburg, SC 29115
This official legal complaint is easy to make and should be filed routinely against this harasser and AT&T, his possible
employee: Slick, good, and easy: esupport.fcc.gov
Also, this creep (and at&T, if indeed if they are involved, as seems to be the case)needs to
complained against ROUTINELY via www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov
Indeed it seems att is responsible for calls that hang up, calls that when answered say NOTHING and repeats of this over and over and over.
In short, it appears AT&T is engaging in illegal HARASSMENT AND BREAKING THE LAW.
Called my house 2x today alone; but when I pick up, they don't say anything.
Hey William Hayden, I just reported you to the authorities for harrassing phone calls. Not only did you call me at 2:00 am, you or somebody at your number belched loud into the phone! I don't give a sh*t if you're a business or not, you are NOT above the law. Telephone laws apply to businesses as well as citizens. You f'd up big time, dumb @ss.
This William Hayden has called me at 2:00am. It makes no difference who he is or is calling on behalf of, calling somebody at 2:00am is harrassment and is a crime. I know this because citi cards pulled the same thing, because I owed them some money and they called at 11:00pm and were very threatening. I got their @ss in some serious trouble. What this Hayden character is doing is illegal. Just ask citigroup what happens when you call somebody very late!
Hey guys, one tip concerning what you can do to try to stop that clown. Go online and pull up The Federal Communications Commissions page, they have a link for complaints relating scam callers, as well as spammers, and junk mailers.
Report that clown, hopefully it will trigger something and net an entire group of them.
Received a call from 803-308-7402 and it appears as (Hayden, William), I did not answer it b/c I saw it was long distance plus the fact that I don't know anyone by that name. No vox msg was left either. I heard that scammers have software which can change their identity when they call, and make it appear to be a legitimate call, obviously hoping you will answer the call.
came up on the caller id as hayden, william. calls several times a day
AT&T are having problems with bogus bills being sent out to customers. I received a notice saying that I did not have service when I have had service for years!
Creepy, that no one was on the line when I picked up.. what is going on! brrrrr...
the person responsible is named William Hayden, he uses a voice modification to disguise his voice. he is an hacker. I f no one actually investigates, then he will continue and be allowed to do what he wants.
he also piggy backs off of others cell phone numbers and collect calls.
THIS is NOT AT&T
I am a ACTIVE constomer of AT&T and have dugg in to him.
I hope he is reading it
your scam is over
8433087870 & 8033087402 claim to be from at&t debt collection
I don't answer, no messages
Called my wife's cell phone, pre-recorded message in spanish. Didn't return the call.
was called by this number on my telus cell on july 8th, 7:47pm AND july 10th 4:14pm.
i didnt answer and they left no msg
called it back and it said the number was disconnected very wierd as who ever it was had just called me
Recorded message in Spanish.... called me cell phone.
just missed a call from them at 10am
I was called on july 9th 2009 9:45am on my cell phone, the caller ID just said Nebraska, I thought it was my friend but when I called back there was an answer machine saying the number has been disconnected, I can see it was a recording and not a telephone company standard recording. I'm not planing on answering unless they leave a message.
Caller ID says it is Weblink Wireless who on May 23, 2001, filed for relief under Chapter 11. It is probably Caller ID spoofing
Didn't answer, never do, Came here to check on it.
a lot of these numbers are used by investigators hired by insurance companies. They call to collect information.
Called my cell 07-06-2009 at 1623 PST. Recording I received was in spanish, so I just hung up.
I was called 6 Jul 2009 4:35PM and no message was left.
Called, no message.
nco collections starts calling at the same time these guys do. I think they are trying to get your credit card number and use it to make payments on old debt. this debt is beyond the statue of limitations so they try to collect it any way they can .nco has a bad rep. google them and you will see.have been fined by the gov. but still break the law daily. just do not answer.
These people have called repeatedly claiming to be AT&T calling about my account. The person, however, won't tell me my account number or the real name the account is under. I called AT&T's service number and their agent denied that it was one of their numbers. He told me it was All Telephone Communications out of South Carolina. South Carolina is what appears on my caller ID.
Got this on my cell phone. Did not answer, but it can't be Fred Thompson now! election is over
I just had a thought let me know what you guys think.... what if they were recording our voice's and thats why they say nothing so we talk and talk... or!! while we keep saying hello, they are trying to get information from our PC's through the phone line ???????? either way i think its very strange why say nothing !!!!! with the spywear they have today who the hell knows what people can do
This number called my cell phone. I didn't recognize the number and did not answer the call.
I thought automated phone dialers for phone marketing had been outlawed for several years. We are on the national do not call list. So what gives with this number. We are current on out phone bill and there is no reason for them to be calling us. I am going to report them to the attorney general.
This is AT&T. I don't believe that they are in the US - probably India. They all have names like John Smith and Kevin Foster, but all have Indian accents. They are obviously reading from a prepared script and when you ask them something that is not in their reference material they say that that information is not available to them. There is never a supervisor or manager around. My guess is they are using a call router that comes in through Charleston, South Carolina, which is why that shows in your caller ID. I started blocking the individual numbers through my selective Call Screening feature from my phone carrier. Hopefully that will put them off!
Got a call from this number....no one said anything so I hung up and called the number back, an automated voice said it was not a working number. Huh? The number called me so how is it not working....lol
Hey it’s your old Pal Tugger again and I am here to say you guys really need to answer these calls. Cause I just won an all expense paid trip to Cancun with V.I.P. access to 2 live donkey shows and ¿ 4000pesos’s ¿ in sending cash. All I had to do when I answered was give them my social security number, checking account information, date of birth, and my street address. I am so excited I can hardly stand it…….Wait a second if they have all that information they could steal my identity and come over here and take my job then I’ll never get to see a donkey show. Surely they wouldn’t do that they sounded legit.
i got a call from it in class.. I didn't bother picking it up.. God.. These people can go **** a donkey.. -.- (Nov 13th 08)
I live in San Diego, Ca. And somebody from Utah called aound 7 or 8. These crooks are telling me that I won a $2000 trip to Disneyland, a lady was talking in spanish. Does anybody know who the caller is?

Probably a scam to solicit driver's licenses for illegal aliens for $
I live around Toronto,ON Canada and I got a call on my cell phone from this number about 5 minutes ago. A voice recording told me i had won a trip to Cancun and to press 1 to continue... i pressed one (out of curiousity).It was pretty hard to understand what was said but a lady told me something along the lines of '...credit card number...free trip... are you interested in knowing more?' i said no and laughed and she hung up on me. I wish i knew how scammers where able to get your number.
Same as Nate; background noise, recorded lady speaking Spanish. Like CT, this happened to me about 2 and 1/2 years ago at a business location; but the speaker was male and the calls came about once a month. I'm suspecting it is an automated search mechanism to identify valid phone numbers; but whatever it is, it is aggravating. The business desk phone didn't was a PBX system and didn't show caller ID like my cell, so I don't know if it was the same number. Other people at that location got similar calls. I found this site while I was looking for info, in fear that I was charged some outrageous amount because I answered the call. (Don't know yet.)
Just got the call now. Am on Rogers in Hamilton. Stooooopid scammers!!!
I just got a call from this number @2:37 pm 11/12/08 - Background noise, phone ringing, and some lady speaking in spanish. I called it back and it's some guy with an english accent staing something about it being a travel number & if I would like to be removed???? Any one else today?
Called at 4:35 p.m. CST. Loud background noise followed by a recorded message in Spanish.
Recording with a British accent says: "this is a Travel related call, press 1 to remove your number from the database, please enter your 10-digit number" "we apologize for the inconvenience, goodbye"
no name, no msg left
i received a call from this # today. it said you have received a free trip to collect your prize press 1, i hung up. creepy.
called my cell. I missed the call, they left no message.
Called back number. Recording says it is a "Travel related" call, and the caller will return the call. So apparently the computer is capturing Caller IDs going its way.
I'm in Calgary, Canada and I just got a call from this number!
same deal, nasty background noise, then some message in spanish. called them back, and then in a computer british accent, they gave me the option of being removed from their database. dumber than hell...
Didn't answer---number is unknown.
you can call the number back and be removed from the list if you enter the number into thier auto-prompt.
If you happen to speak spanish, at the time you receive the call, press one, and ask the operator to remove yur number immediately (you will have to do so in spanish, I have not yet encountered an operato that speaks english).
This was an automated spanish call saying that I had won some money and to press "1" to open the cash register. I hung up.
I got an automated voice saying I won a trip to Mexico, and to claim my prize press 1. I just hung up.
Rec'd this call on my cell in Toronto, Canada - I won a "free trip to Mexico". When I hit 1 to connect, the agent greeted and I told them never to call again. She immediately disconnected - presumably to avoid further time with me, or plausible deniability for DNC.
Phone line is via

Its a commercial type scam that wants your credit card for a free trip. Don't fall for it.
Didn't pick up, but my answering machine did. Spanish recording asking me to press #1 if I wanted $2000 that were in an account under my name.
the message (if it was the same for the rest) is congrats you have won 2000$ press number one. So I didn't. Who would let a robot give a way so much money. Anyway it is a good thing I didn't fall for it. But I wonder what they will user my phone number for next.

Hearing someone speaking in Spanish I hung up. Several days ago I also got a phone call from this same number on my home phone.

If you wish to be removed from our database press one".
Hey, Je suis Canadianne!!! Why am I getting prank calls at work on my private cell? What do the Mormons want from me? Je suis Catholic, nous avons pas besoin de leur idee!
It is a scam telling you that you won a prize and to press 1. Then you get some sketchy person who needs your credit card to claim your prize.... decline the call or tell them where to shove it. this is a scam.

I just hung up from this number on my cell phone (area code for Raleigh, NC. 919). After I said hello I also heard background noise and then a recorded message in Spanish. I posted another number on this website a few weeks ago that was also Spanish (504-218-2950). I had read on that page that a person who spoke spanish typed out the message and it mentioned credit card winnings and asked for the 3 digits on the back of the card. I don't you about you guys but I have a credit card so they could be just calling people to get the numbers on the back to be able to use their money. I don't know for sure, its just a theory.
I live in Toronto and I received a call from this number two minutes ago. The recorded announcement said I won a trip to Cancun Mexico. I immediately hung up. My advice: do the same if you get this call.
They just called me in Ottawa, Canada. I didn't answer, and they didn't leave a message
I live in Ottawa, Canada and received a call fromm this number about 5 mins ago, I did not pick up because there was no name on call ID and I didn't recognize the number.
Got a call 10/11, computerized voice telling me I won a free trip to Cancun. too bad I can't go. It's not every day Stephen Hawking offers to take me to Mexico.
I received this same call on 2 different cell phones today
Got a call from this number on my cellphone, but I didn't answer as it wasn't on my white list. Looks like the scammer is bugging the whole country!
I also received a call from this number on my cell phone at 6:27 pm. I was in class and it rang, so I was furious. It was in spanish, but it took some time before playing a message.
call came to my cell phone; spanish message????? I hung up.
did not answer because I did not reconzied the number.
Was a work,
got this call too today nov. 10 at around 1:15pm, what the heck is 801?
missed call to cell phone, googled this page. thanks!
the caller id said u.s. government, i called back using *67, and recording came on. saying this ws travel related message, if youwish to be removed from the list, press 1. i hung up.
called,using #67,the message said travel related call, if you wish to be removed from the list, press 1 now.
Rec'd call from 801-736-4400 at 4:24 PM EDT, 2008-11-10. Foreign Language, sounded like Spanish. I hung up, and called the number back. A male recorded voice said "This is a travel call. You will be contacted later." Must be a scam of some kind. Caller ID said "US GOVERNMENT".
I received this call today on my personal cell, decided to google it and found this....I got the call today at 5:19pm....missed it but called it back and all i got was a recording of like a retarded british sounding guy...ended up saying "if you want to be removed from the calling list press 1"....then asked for my number but I thought it might be some sort of scam after reading some of these so I just hung up....
I live in Raleigh, NC....so idk why this guy would call me...all the way from Utah
loud background noise, recorded voice in Spanish then silence and hung up. I'm in the Raleigh area.
OMG! I have3 gotten this number calling me apprx. 30 times today already. My company switchboard has apprx. 300 number combinations so I guess it will continue until it hits every single line!! Same as above, cash register sound ringing, then a voice in Spainish. If you press 1, it takes you to a live operator. I kept doing that and asking to speak to someone who spoke English. They never could get anyone to take my call. Scammers about travel?? Sounds like it. Can't you tell that I am SOOOOO looking forward to them repeatedly calling all the numbers on my switchboard with their auto dialer. Fun, fun fun.
scam. no one on the other end when answered. Also in Raleigh.
I didnt answer just noticed the number on my phone.... but what i would like to know is why bother
I got called by this number on my cell phone. It was a recorded message that was all in Spanish. I do speak a little Spanish but I wasnt prepared to listen carefully - I did notice that the last word in the recorded message was "dinero".
Got a call from this number tried offering me some sort of scam.
I'm in Toronto Canada, got a call from 801-736-4400 today Nov 10, 2008, didn't recognize the number, so I rejected the call directly.
SCAM Says it's a travel related call, foreign voice, lots of background and noise. If you call it back it says if you wish not to be called anter your 10 digit number. I didn't...I'm certain that once you do this they will have your number and then let the scams begin!
I got this call 11/10/08 4:15pm Eastern standard time
These people are so bloody annoying! They call cell phones for godsake! I wish there was some way we could bounce the calls so that they would have to pay double.
I am in Raleigh as well and received that call at 12:42. Missed the call all together.
Called my cell phone (Virgin Mobile) at 3:53 PM 11/10/08. I'm also in Raleigh, NC I didn't answer.
Called my cell 3:42 Pm. Nov. 10/08. Someone mentioned they get their info from customs. I buy stuff online often so that might be the connection.
I posted a comment, earlier, this cell # is relatively new, as I just changed numbers a few months ago. No I have never traveled out of the country. I added this number to the do not call list a few months ago upon changing numbers. Am in Raleigh, NC as well.
they called Toronto
I'm in Toronto and got the same kind of scam call.
Has anyone actually proceeded with the call after the initial message?
Travel / tourism. State of nevada. They get your info from customs. I'm from Canada.
I received a call as well. Just a quick question ... have any of you traveled to any resort or provided you telephone number to a travel company? Very odd ...
Got a call around 1:29 pm (central), I did not pick up and no message was left.
Same as nate's comment.
I received a call from this number on my cell phone (cell phone is FL area code 813) at 2:45 pm today. There was a lot of loud background noise, followed by a recorded message in Spanish. I immediately hung up! Wish I had ever answered!!!
Also just received this call on area code 914 cell phone. Did not pick up and there was no message left.
just received the same call from this number at 2.50pm. said i won a trip to mexico in english hanged up after 2 second. and i am in canada
Got a call also, this is a phone number for a Military Commissaries and Exchanges:
Web site: www.militaryconnection.com
Ft. Douglas AAFES Mx
BLDG 200 ,
Utah UT 84113
Just got a call on my personal cell#. Same call as described below. I'm in Raleigh, NC.
OMG i just rcvd a call @ 2:13 PM EST, i picked up but the line was cut. I was worried who could it be...then my friend said go google the area code as it seems like a US number. Then tried typing the whole 10 digits & came across this.... ALSO seems like everyone got the call today NOVEMBER 10th!!!!
voice recording saying I won a vacation to Cancun... "press 1 to continue", I hung up...
got a call from this # didnt pick up, they left no messege
Haha, I JUST got a call from them (801-736-4400)
I heard a sound resembling a cash register closing or a door slamming, and then a lady speaking in Spanish.
I'm glad I'm not alone!
only static on the line when I picked up this call.
recieved call @ 11:20 lot background noise spanish recording hung up
I just got a call at 1:35 p.m. i answered but the call was lost i called the number back because i wanted to know what it was and it was a recording saying that it was travel related phone call and that if i wished to be removed from all database to enter my 10 digit phone number so i did and it said it was erased then i looked the number up online and found out it happend to other people too. Im in Baltimore City Maryland
got this number from my cell phone. they did not leave a message. I called from my home phone (which in hindsight may not have been a good idea) It was a man with strong accent that said it was about travel something. Said if I wanted to be removed from their data base to press 1. I did not do anything except hangup.. What are we going to do about these calls???????/
Rec'd call from number today at 1:40 pm and did not pick up. They left no message. Googled number and this site came up, so looks like I'm glad I didn't pick up.
yup, background static then spanish, then I hung up. this has happened about once every two weeks for the pas month or so. I heard somewhere recently that cell phones are know fair game for telemarketing?
Received this call on my cell phone. I missed the call and no message was left.
I recieved a call today 11/10/2008 at 1:23pm caller ID displayed U.S. Government I did not bother pick up, they left no message. I am SO tired of recieving calls from strange area codes. I don't bother to pick up the phone anymore unless I know for sure who it is. Thank god for caller ID these people should be shot.....
what is the message and why do they call? I just got a call from them today.
I just posted this twice by accident. the first i listed as unknown / did not display, second i did ad number only.
they just called my cell, i have my cell set to just vibrate if it is an unknown # or not someone in my phone book. I did not answer the call. they did not leave a message.
They called every cell phone in our company! I even got a call on my personal cell phone that same day. 11/10/08 @ 1:24PM
Same as nate: background noise and message in Spanish.
Received a call from this number. SCAMMER!
They are calling from Salt Lake City Utah phone number.
It was in English today 11/10/2008
Was a recording saying - This is travel related - Please call...
I received a call from this number on my cell phone (cell phone is NY area code 914) at noon today. There was a lot of loud background noise, followed by a recorded message in Spanish. I just hung up after the message started. They're calling from a Salt Lake City area code.
No voice online when picked up and called back and it was a dead line
i get a call from both of the numbers and they always ask for somebody that i dont know. when i told them that there was nobody by that name living here they wanted my name. i told them what it was and then they wanted me to give them my address. i told the woman that i was not going to give them that and she hung up on me. they keep calling at least 3-4 times a day asking for this person. i call the number back and i get a message saying that it is a non-working number
i did not answer, but read here and called at&t at 888 288 2020. i reported this number as a scam to at&t customer service, with a request to forward the # to her supervisor, as they are committing fraud. the rep thanked me and said she would. also reported to donotcall.gov.
Everyone we can fight back fill in the following form takes about 3 minutes online...
If enough people do this it will hopefully end!
Everyone you can fight back file a complaint with the FCC it's easy and online and takes about 3 minutes
If enough people do this it will hopefully end!
i get a call from this number about five times a day. i've tried calling them back but it says that this is "not a working number." This is really intollerable. Anyone have any idea how to deal with this?
This is ATT- I believe it's a private collections from them- They usually call 5 days before my bill is due and keep calling! Don't pay them, pay ATT Direct! ATT Sucks for this and I'm switching!! Screw You ATT!
my fax line keeps getting calls from 8033087402 but no faxes
Unknown caller - third time in two hours
Called # back, been called by this number numberous times over the past few days. When I called back the message said to check my number and then said "Alltel 84B"
Can this be stopped?
Called # back, been called by this number numberous times over the past few days. When I called back the message said to check my number and then said "Alltel 84B"
I had 15 calls in one day and would not speak to anyone but my husband and I do not have AT&T as my carrier
This is a nuisance
Total scam. We don't even have At&t for the number they quoted. I have had calls from the 843-308-7402 number also. We have blocked all the numbers that they call on. There is about 4 that we are aware of at this time.
Going on the assumption that the harassing phone calls I've been receiving many times a day were coming from AT&T, I went through my bills and found that I did have an overdue bill.
I paid the bill in full - now I'm curious if the phone calls will stop. We'll see.
So far today I've not had any phone calls from this number.
P.S. I paid my bill with AT&T automated phone system and was told that my service would be restored in 3 to 4 hours.
i"m constantly getting calls from this number I wish they would stop. they always interupting me when i"m talking to someone else.
this number called me friday night after 9:30 pm and again sat morning at 8 am! i let the call go to voice mail both times since i did not recognize the area code and the caller id said "unavailable". the caller did not leave messages on my answering machine. i called the number back and a recorded message informed me the number was a non-working number. coincidentally, 1 hour later i got a call from an 843 area code number (south carolina) and a woman with an indian accent identified herself as being from att collections. not knowing if this was truly att or not i declined to speak with her. i called att back and it turned out that att had incorrectly applied my 3 most recent payments to a closed account and had me listed as being over 60 days past due! it seems that att contracts with this company which uses the 803 number to collect on what they think are past due balances. this contractor uses underhanded and possibly illegal calling methods to harrass account holders.
This number called my house at 8:13 am, 10:57 am, 1:04 pm, 2:12 pm, 3:27 pm today no message left
This number has been calling me 8-10 times a day.. from early morning to late at night. The callerID I get is obviously faked ("CELL PHONE SC").
Creepy-sounding woman called this morning from this number. Too stupid to realize she was speaking to the answering machine.
I do so hope she calls again so that I can play with her.
Caller ID said "Sherry Mack."
Unsure of caller...they hung up and never left a message
Series of number showed under the phone number
Repeated calls from 843-308-7870 and 803-308-7402. CallerID says "Unknown". Poor connections (weak signal, some line noise). On all calls, a man with Indian accent identified himself as Tom Baker, said $24.64 is overdue on ATT account. Service here has never been with ATT. He asks for further details such as full name, phone (he didn't know number he called?). When asked to speak to a supervisor he says "why?", gets indignant, and eventually he hangs up. Called back the 803 number (ORANGEBURG, South Carolina): Altel telco message "not a working number". Called back the 843 number (CHARLESTON, South Carolina, Bellsouth telco): recorded woman's voice (American, slightly congested/nasal) referred to the ATT Credit and Receivables number 877-626-1110. That number has voicemaze that sounds like ATT; didn't complete the maze, yet. Paid buck-fifty for a *57 trace; two more of those and police will accept a harassment report. Not sure how long this address will work, but you might be able to contact me at greyed94267 at mypacks.net.
I was worried because I get called at least 20 times per day after I disconnected my AT&T phone and switched it to Time Warner Cable digital phone. So since I have been frustrated I called the attorney generals office and left them a message about the 803 number and I filled out a consumer complaint form at www.oag.state.tx.us I believe the more complaint forms we fill out the more noise we make maybe the government will put a stop to these idiots. I don't even owe them a stinking penny and I am getting called at 3 am at 1150 pm and other crazy hours of the day. When I call the number back it says that it is not a working number alltel 84.
Go to www.ascendis.com and buy there callerid software. I bought and with the telezapper I getting less and less calls. The callerid will hang up on people you don't want and with the telezapper they get the tones as if it was a wrong number...
(803) 308-7402 This Number has called me 12 times in the pass two days...
call 877-626-1110,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,it is att collections dept.
The caller never said anything just held the phone. when tried to call the number back it states that this is a nono working number. Who is this
I/m getting these call several times a day, just deleted 20 or so of them off my caller id. Always waits for the machine and then hangs up, never any message. I hav never answered the phone so I cant say anything about that.
Today Jan.1, 2008* sorry...
A guy called me from (452)898-7777 today Dec.1 2007 at 12:30am U.S. Eastern Time (ALSO SEE: (416)777-7776)
He told me that he had found my phone on a post on Craigslist. He was capable of telling me about my posting, thus he had indeed seen it. He was offering me a job as his "secretary" which sounded like something else, now that he kept on asking me how I looked, and how much I weighted, etc.
He said that this job offering was an intership for Law students, and that he knew people in Harvard. He also mentioned that he knew Dr.Moynihan from Florida State University. When I asked for his phone he gave me the following #: (416)777-7776
He sounded very convincing, but with so many question he made me feel uncomfortable. I didn't give all of my real information, but there was a moment in which I openly told him of how uncomfortable I was feeling and I asked him to spell out his name because I wanted to check his info to see if it was true. After that, he proceeded to hang up the phone.
Now, I can't find his number, name, or anything anywhere. I have called 411, and checked all data bases for his info. He doesn't appear anywhere.
20 calls per day. I am ready to fly to their location and choke the person in charge. Whoever they are, the are going to be cancelled if I am doing any business with them.
Called this number and it was a recording: "The number you have dialed cannot be reached..." so obviously it's been disconnected. Googling the number and found out it is a phising scam and they are trying to get your bank account information. It's a scam.
Hey, I am so F*in' tired of these slimy bill collectors trying to facilitate business through
I have had countless problems with Bell South. Even though their telemarketers harass me all hours of the day, I cannot get a person on the telephone to explain why my service has been temporarily disconnected. Thank God i have a cell phone! I have had numerous problems with my phone service. They also sent the bill to a wrong address and then turned me over to a collection agency. An AT and T representative later denied that I had been turned over to a collection agency. I think this company is highly unethical. I just sent them a complaint.
Repeated calls started on Sept 8 and continued on Sept 10. I answered the last call and it was a nasty sounding voice wanting me to listen to a taped message from Fred Thompson and after the recorded message they wanted to ask me some questions. I hung up and have not heard from them again.
i get calls from a number and they do not say anything,i would like to get it stopped,also i reported it to operator and she put me thru to annoyance call center after waiting on line for 30 min i got hung up on,pitiful service i say, my #6783763564
I have sent formal complaints to The FCC and Attorney Generals of Flordia and SC. Forwarded the complaints to ATT's General Counsel in Houston. Suggest all do the same. Now the Indians have stopped calling and I am getting calls from an "American" collection agent. I do not owe ATT any thing- they owe me a refund that I have given up on. My time is to valuable to fight them for it.
Been calling on and off for the past two weeks. I tried to corner the heavily Indian accented manto no avail. He just babbles about AT&T and won't answer any questions. Pretty pathetic if it is an attempt at identity theft.
Get ready people...especially Ohioans.
This is just the first of hundreds of campaign phone calls you will receive over the next year. It won't be just from Fred.
You'll likely get calls from every last candidate if you live in a swing state like Ohio or Florida.
As others have mentioned, political and charitable causes are exempt from the Do Not Call list, so the best we can do is turn on the answering machine and turn down the ringer. :(
typical political solicitation.....answer and hang up to get off the computers auto redial program or they will keep calling
I have received numerous calls from this number. I don't answer and "they" never leave a message.
It turns out we did owe on the phone bill. When i called At and T said that I had been contacted by the collection agency; however, they told my mother that our account had not been turned over to a collection agency. We did not receive the bill, as they had the wrong address.
I spoke to a dude with an accent. Not sure if he was Indian. When I told him I would check my bill online, he insisted that I give him my credit card number. It is strange they would call me in the first place, as I do not pay the bill, my parents do. I would think that if it was a legigimate call, A T and T would've contacted my folks. I called mom and she is not aware that we owe any money. I think it is fraud.
Got a hangup call from this number. Have received numerous calls today from SC numbers apparently associated with A T and T. I have been receiving these calls all day long. Bell south is my provider.
i have received numerous calls from what appears to be AT and T. I am with Bellsouth. I am on the DNCR. I am considering filing a complaint. They call from different SC numbers. The other one is an 843 area code.
It is not even a number you can call back
AGGRAVATING CALL FROM THIS NUMBER x DAYS NOW
This was AT&T calling about my long distance. Some Indian dude, must be outsourced to Mumbai. I got him to give me the amount $32.90, I owe and stalled while I logged in to my AT&T account online. Shows that amount not due until Nov. 4, that's two weeks from now. Told him no credit card payment tonight, wait until 11/4 and I will pay it online. Sounds like AT&T is hard up for cash trying to collect on money that isn't due yet. They have to know that only a fool would give their credit card number to a stranger over the phone in this day and age. Anyway, hitting him with the "I'm logged in and looking at my account and based on your records I'm not due yet why are you calling me" really shut his ass down. After that it was ok well pay online then and he was gone.
I DO NOT KNOW A FRED THOMPSON
Received ANOTHER call from this number about 7 PM on Thursday. I had just walked in from work and the phone was ringing. Picked it up and got dead air then a click. This has happened three evenings in a row and I'm tired of it. I used to support Fred Thompson, but after giving him some money, am ready to drop it. They make a lot more than we do. Let them pay for their own re-election!
Interesting thing is that the phone's in my name but I have never been a registered voter. I have no political affiliations of any sort. Fred Thompson isn't relying on voter lists, his crew is just buzzing through the phonebook (I am listed. Leslie Edmundson, The Plains VA. Formal apologies from Thompson campaign will be accepted. So will be accepted any solicitations for Do Not Call List Anti-Politics Ammendment testimony.)
I'm doing a research project, so I googled who had called while I was putting the kids to sleep (late, 8pm). Now I know. You woke up the kids, Fred. Tomorrow's educational achievement is obviously not a platform for you. Neither Bush nor Clinton ever went so far as to wake up my children on a school night. . . this also becomes an obstacle for mommies who want to accomplish anything besides dealing with overtired kids.
Let's hear it for polititians being ammended to the Do Not Call list. . . Now THERE'S something I'll vote for. . .
Fred Thompson is some political group. They were looking for my roommate and I told them that he is not here, he will not answer calls from this number, and to stop calling 3+ times a day, some at dubious times of day... and that if they keep calling, they will just keep hitting the answering machine. Woman was very irate and basically said they do not have to oblidge by do not call since their a political candidate...
Sorry chump im a Hilary girl,don't call me.
Eat me Fred. Politians make me sick, especially when they BUG me at home.
Mother fucker calls 3 times a day.
Maybe he only calls females! I answered the phone and he asked for my daughter.
do not call 810-984-8604 ever again as of 10/20/2007
I just answered a call for the first time from this number. I spoke to a real person who asked for my mother-in-law (she had our number but my mother-in-law's name). I asked her if I should be getting several calls from that number everday and she told me they use auto dialer and it keeps calling a number until they reach someone. I asked if that means my calls will stop since she reached me. She told me she would update her files and they should stop. So I guess you have to answer to get the calls to stop.
This is the most Annoying person I have ever met.
Check your database. Calling someone in Oregon at 7:25 in the morning with a political campaign message is not only illegal, but it won't get you elected either.
I too have received a few calls from the number. As well as other polical candidates national and local. I'm assuming I can expect annoying telephone calls from ALL the candidates, Republican AND Democrat. Thankfully, this is temporary and will soon cease once the election takes place.Unfortunately, telemarketers, scammers and "others" will continue until they are stopped legally.
Refused to leave message with family to return call.
Caller ID showed Fred Thompson but when answered no one spoke up. If they are going to call at least they can say something. If it is one of those recorded messages they can lose my number.
Have received over 13 calls from this number over the last 3 weeks. When I pick up I never say a word and just listen. No one ever speaks and hangs up after several seconds. I have been reporting each incident to the California Attorney Generals office.
We get calls from this number often. When we do answer, no one speaks on the other end. When we don't answer, there is no voicemail left.
They keep calling and I refuse to vote for this man! I was told that Obama was Muslim, if so what will happen to our country???
I am so sick of these calls I would never vote for this man after getting all those phone calls it is disgusting. What a shame they can not stop these horrible calls don't call her no moreeee
Same as everyone else Fred Thompson, no message calls at all hours.
I called these people (AH Collections) at the caller id #, which always comes up "all circuts busy, try later." I then called them at (201) 325-8811.( their listed address phone #) They hung up. Next I received a call from "NutraVida" @ (201) 325- 0776. No one responded when I picked up & said hello. Lastly, I called back to (201) 325-8811. They told me they had been dailing the wrong #. I told them not to call back, they said "okay". I think they are telemarketers. Hope this helps !
When I answered, no one there. But -- I called the number and got an automated answer from Fred Thompson's presidential campaign.
Well, I didn't like ol' Fred much anyway. Here's another Ron Paul vote (and I ain't even Republican).
My mother is in her 80's. These calls are coming in daily (from very early AM to late at night) and sometimes several times per day. She asked me to see who it was because they never reply but keep calling. How THOUGHTLESS! Someone needs to alert the media to this abuse. Now that I know what this is about, I'm going to BLOCK the number for her.
These people, whoever they are, have call once or twice daily for the past several weeks. Even on weekends. I do not answer numbers/names I don't recognize, and they decline to a leave message.
Daily calls from this number ... no message ... no Caller ID info other than 615.349.9441! THIS IS VIOLATION OF DO NOT CALL LAW!
These assholes called me a total of 11 times today alone. I called and reported it to my local authorities. We some how have to do something to stop this, it is so annoying!!
this number is evidently affiliated with 8433087870 because they started calling at the same time and they both state they are calling from att. I wasnt answering until I checked the number out so now I don't feel so bad about hurting their feelings.
Political fundraiser calls from the "Friends of Fred Thompson"
Just another call from a politician. Regardless of whether you signed for the do not call list, political messages were specifically exempted.
I suggest that you do one or two things: buy a TELEZAPPER, which will kill the computer generated calls by most political causes, and never donate a penny to ANY political candidate, party, or political issue organization.
If I don't know you or your number I won't pick up. Stop calling me or anyone else because we don't know or care of you. Thank you.
Told the lady on line to quit calling, had no interest in her message.She was argumentive, and I hung up.
No info on the number but these clowns who put their comments on line and say they won't be voting for this candidate weren't going to vote for anyone probably and this candidate for sure in the first place.
Hi, BJ and Whorellary:
Don't worry about Fred Thompson.
Your neighbors will loot and burn this nation because of the taxes that the Democrat Party plan to levy.
Arming again an Jihad will sleep in the Lincoln Bedroom with Jessica Jamison and Whoopie will do Mr. and Mrs. Pilosi. Hillary is destined to allow anything goes.
this no. started calling last week and they call every day from 9:00am to 9:00pm plus all the other no's that is listed above and they hang up when you answer if you stay on line they keep picking up their telephone but want say anything
I.D. stated Fred Thompson, they hung up multiple times on my machine but continue to call....i work nights and this last call woke me up....
One more time...
Who says this is Fred Thompson calling? And if it is...who cares. it's like any other phone Poll, and completely legal. No one is selling a product for profit. So all you "haters" need to remember that you have the right to not answer the phone, and the right to delete blank voicemails and answering machine messages.
We have been called repeatedly from this number. Fortunately, I have a "Person-to-Person" call screener from "Interceptor ID" that allows me to block such numbers. I just did so. This one is history.
This no. appears on my caller ID repeatedly. I answered it today. No one said a word. They never leave a message on the machine. A complete nuisance.
Searched for area code and exchange, which showed for North Bergen, Nj. Searched the yellow pages in Hudson County area and came up for one in Union City, NJ which is close to North Bergen, NJ. The info is as follows:
540 39th St, Union City, NJ 07087
different # but same name and same area. Called once today but didm't leave a message.
Called me at 10:36 PM, so if anyone can find out "real" information about them (address, name, etc.) I would appreciate it...
I'll vote for you Fred, if you get the nomination. I know these calls are annoying, and I ignored it also and then found this site. Understand that this is just part of the political process, and you have the choice to not answer. I'd rather vote for Fred than the options on the other side, this way I'll be able to keep my money and won't have to keep giving it away to others that don't work as hard for it.
This # calls me 10-15times a day. They never leave a message nor do I ever answer.I have also been getting bills from at&t for service i've never had.
Hey Fred, don't call me ... u r a farce ... a member of the Council on Foreign Relations ... u want to sell out America ... quit now! I am voting for Ron Paul
Caller ID is private. Caller won't answer. Who is it?
Take away their phone privilege.
Called at 9:10 Sunday morning. A bit thoughtless.
After receiving numerous calls from this number in 2 days, and reading info online about it, I finally answered one. I asked the person for his supervisor, and he refused. I then told him that his "coordinates have been forwarded to the Dept. of the Navy." Added, "you should evacuate your building immediately." He hung up and has not called back.
I would never vote For Freddie Boy just because they are bugging me all the time on the phone don't bother to call I will call all my friends and tell them not to vote for Fred because of this they should not be allowed to call us please don't call here any more no one will answer Freddie Boy/
They call every day. . . almost as bad as credit collectors or telemarketers.
Don't vote. Leave me alone.
I have elderly mother & mother-in-law and must RUN to get in earshot of answering machine taping a message in case of an EMERGENCY call from them. I also have 12 foster animals outside to care for. Starting at 8 am to nearly 9 pm, sometimes every couple of hours, and nearly every day of the week, I have to stop what I'm doing to run for this ongoing annoyance, only to hear it hang up during the message recording. I only have *69 to see who makes these repeated calls, and to show you how often they call, the other members in my family know the number by heart, as they ask me who IS this calling all the time. Is there some reason they think not leaving a phone number or message repeatedly is NOT annoying to those they are trying to reach?
Realllly annoying calls. This number calls several times a day, including early AM (7:00) and later evening (almost 9:00 PM), and we don't answer "Private caller" numbers, ever. No message left, either. If this is a campaign call, where do I leave a message to them that says, "DO NOT CALL ME"?!?! At least other campaign calls we have gotten so far (and there have been a LOT) have the decency to identify themselves on caller ID! I don't care who anyone is voting for (just VOTE), and I don't care if this is a "Friends of" group. If you want my vote, identify yourself on my phone!!!
Anyone who receives a phone call from the Fred Thompson campaign, should accept it. Also, contribute your dollars. I would rather see Fred as president than Hillary.
Called me, no voices, no computer automation
this "Private name" is calling constantly! If they want my $ or my vote, they better start leaving a message! Either way, I will not answer the fone for "Private name"!!!
receiving 6 calls a day the last few days. recording-boys says he is on emily's phone and to leave a message.
Definitely will not vote for this jackass. Do not call me anymore!
Call any time Fred, I'll get another check off to you soon.
I didn't answer it. I never answer calls when I don't recognize the area code.
Thanks to this site for the info. Now that I know it's Friends of Fred Thompson calling I'll answer this call next time it comes. Thanks again
Reading these posts arzi mentioned while sleeping getting the call. There is a rule that still exists that you do not have to be on a Do Not Call List for. No telemarketer, politician, charity is allowed to call you before 9:00 YOUR TIME ZONE or after 9:00 PM. If they do you can bust them and they can be heavily fined for not following this rule. Just thought you should know.
1. Politicians and charities are exempt from the Do Not Call List
2. If you have done business with a company within the past year they are also exempt from calling you to try and sell you more stuff until that year is up. 9 months in some states.
3. They aren't actually hanging up on you. An automated system is hanging up. In order to get as many people as they can (politicians, telemarketers, and charities) they have a system that calls 10 to 12 numbers at the same time. The first number to pick up they talk to and their system then hangs up all the other numbers so they don't get all the long distance charges. It saves them money.
4. It was Fred Thompson's campaign
I have been getting calls for this "service" for the last couple of days. Today, 9/23/07 (Sunday) it was at 8:30 a.m. This Hollyweird ACTOR is like all the other Demmican and Republicrat candidates and couldn't care less what voters (or potential constituents) want.
Fred you better get this to stop you will have me voting for Hillery if this keeps up!!!!!
Caller, a woman, asked to speak with "Eric Gray" I told her there was no one with that name at this number. (There isn't!) She said somethink like "Thank you, have a good night"
Another liberal republicrat politician. This one is a "conservative liberal". We don't accept political calls from ANYONE. (And we vote Constitution Party, not republicrat).
Calls every hour. If I don't answer at 9:00am or 10:00am or 11:am you would think they would get the hint that maybe I AM AT WORK !!!! If it is that important, LEAVE A MESSAGE!!!!
I got this call and I am happy the future president called me. This man can run circles around ANY of those stupid democrats!
Called 6 times since 9-14-07
Gotten several calls, no messages. I am not answering calls from this number.
Thompson is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and a Visiting Fellow with the American Enterprise Institute, specializing in national security and intelligence.
He is a one worlder watch "America - Freedom to Fascism" by Aaron Russo to learn more about the CFR's agenda.
I am a Thompson supporter but I don't like the calls at home any better than anyone else reporting in on this site. I called the number and it said clearly that it was "Friends of Fred Thompson." They did not leave a message, nor did they give me an opportunity to leave a message when I called the number back. You can bet they will hear from me. Even though anyone who has informed themselves knows political and fundraising calls are allowed, it is still okay to express that I don't like it. Whoever said go to their website and complain has it right.
You won't give me your name, ergo, you don't get mine!
I will be voting for Fred this election, all you Hillary, Osama Obama supportersstart wiping away your tears of defeat!!!! Ah yes I can smell another Republican in the White House Go Gipper!!!!
So whos to say this isn't a ploy the the democrats to discredit Fred Thompson?
I certainly wouldn't put it past them! I also don't think Thompson would be that stupid.
never leave a message. very aggravating
I get that the Friends of Fred are idiots that can't get how to make a phone call, but are you guys really stupid enough to think that they actually read this website and see that they are not to contact you anymore. Plus they can't tell who not to call when all they have is your name AND for the love of god do not post your phone number/address/full name, etc on a website! Go to the website and try contacting them there. If they get enough complaints they might fix it.
no response after repeatedly asking "Hello?"
I hate autodialers. Stupis politicians being exempt from the registry. That's just wrong.
DUH! Why would I answer a call from Fred Thompson!?
No more than I would answer a call from Nancy Pelosi.
Fred Thompson is an actor people. He is what he wants YOU to think he is. If he wanted you to think he was a liberal he'd play the part. He is in the CFR and their stated goal is to create the North American Union (NAU) fashioned after the European Union. This would trump OUR CONSTITUTION. Also involved in this evil group: Guilliani, Edwards, Clinton and Obama's wife. Do your homework and do not believe what FOX, CNN, ect tell you.
This person call's our house alot everyday but never leaves a message and it is getting anoyying
Who/where does it say that Fred Thompson is involved with these calls?
I'll bet if his name is involved, its a rival that is doing it and using his name.
That's one less candidate I'll vote for. Keep the calls coming.... That's one way of eliminating them.
Don't you just love it when a caller wants to hide his identity so you'll pick up the phone. I'm sure it works really well.
Since call originated from Fred Thompson's state, I'll assume it was a political which doesn't make it any more acceptable.
Stop annoying people -
We've had repeated calls. The minute I say "hello," there is a disconnect. Hey, Fred! Get your autodial software fixed!!!
I'm voting for Barack. Leave me alone.
Isn't it great that politicians exempted themselves from the "Do Not Call List" restrictions? Nobody else can call you, but they can.
Stop calling us!!
I understand it is the supporters of "FRED THOMPSON" doing all these calls.... You call me again and I will never ever vote for your bid bud!!! You guys are annoying voters!!!!
I resent getting calls from ANY politician or other solicitor. Thompson would not get my vote in any case.
To this caller.
Sorry whoever you are,
We do not answer calls from people wearing a mask a cloak and maybe a dagger(PRIVATE CALLs) in this house.You have to be man enough to identify yourself if you want people to consider talking to you...
Oh and it gives number and BLOCK NAME !!
Just recieved a call from this number answering machine picked and they hung up. I dailed back and it is from the Friends of Fred Thompson. All is pre recorded said they will be calling back .
I appreciate finding this site and learning about the call. Annoying to get political phone calls at all, let alone when everyone is asleep. I pay the phone bill and I should be able to decide if you can call me...it's like stopping my car at a light and you jump in for a ride without asking. You lost any chance of a vote at this house just by calling.
Is this guy THOMPSON making a pass at my wife ?
He calls us relentlessly like nobody's business.
Hey THOMPSON, you have just violated our right to privacy sir. We know you are a freaking spy but please leave us honest Americans alone. STOP CALLING US FOR YOU CAUSE.
Place a commercial. an add or something, just don't call us, WE'LL CALL YOU IF WE ARE INTERESTED OF YOUR CAUSE!!!!
This is the first time I have received a call from this unk caller; the call was blocked.
Thank you for the info Won't Vote...
Now I know who not to vote for.... This guy "FRED THOMPSON" annoys me and my family with his un-welcome calls....
Don't call here anymore
Freddie Dalton "Fred" Thompson (born August 19, 1942) is an American politician, lawyer, lobbyist, and character actor. He represented Tennessee as a Republican in the U.S. Senate from 1994 through 2003.
Thompson is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and a Visiting Fellow with the American Enterprise Institute, specializing in national security and intelligence. He resides in McLean, Virginia near Washington, D.C..
As an actor, Thompson has performed in film and on television. He has frequently portrayed governmental figures. In the final months of his U.S. Senate term in 2002, Thompson joined the cast of the long-running NBC television series Law & Order, playing New York City District Attorney Arthur Branch.
On May 30, 2007, Thompson asked to be released from his television duties, potentially in preparation for a presidential bid. Then, on June 1, 2007, he formed a presidential exploratory committee regarding his possible 2008 campaign for president. On September 5, 2007, Thompson announced on The Tonight Show: "I'm running for president of the United States," and he steered viewers to his web site for a 15-minute video announcement of his candidacy.
all i can say it is very irritating to receive a call when nobody on the other line...wasting my time
A recorded message saying they have an important message from AT&T, then sometimes it just goes dead. Today a person just blurted out my mom's name. I told the person that I know that they are a fraud and stop calling.
This is AT&T. I signed up with them for overseas long distance when my step-son was in Germany in 2001-2004. I continued with this service even after he returned to the United States. I called and asked for them to discontinue and they still billed me. I quit paying the bill and was turned over to collections. I paid that off and told them I did not want the service restored. Guess what. I was rebilled again and now it is back into collections. I will have to take another course of action.
I have been getting calls from this number several times a day for about a week. My caller id says the number is from Kansas but i cant get a name to go with the number.
I have been recieving calls from this number. THe phone rings,I pick up. Nobody there. After a few seconds I hear a click. I also have this # calling and they listen to my answer machine and hang up. We Have to STOP this caller.
I have been receiving calls from this number for weeks now & multiple times a day! I can never answer b/c of work & such, but it needs to stop!
claimed to be ATT and had a foreign accent.sounded indian.
the funny part is is that i moved to ca 2 years ago since my husband is in the military and i got a job at cox communications. i got my telephone number with them and have never changed the number or carriers. befor that we were underage, living with our folks in az. i have never had service with alltel, bell south, pac bel, or cingular. always cox and verizon. i called at&t cust service and they told me they have absolutely no record of an account with them. so to those who think this is a glitch it really isnt it. its a stupid indian dude stealing your hard earned money and life savings or worse your identity. come on now be serious what kind of collection agency needs your social or calls you from a cell phone?
In the past two days I have gotten5 calls from the number 843-308-7870, which states it has an important message for me, please wait for a rep and then it disconnects me every time. then one from palm bay florrida that states it has been disconnected though it called me today. then 1 call from an 800 serice which just rings and rings and rings and then goes busy. 2 unknown caller calls today. and then for the alltell cell number from SC i have been called 12 times in the past two days. they called at 630 tonight and i screamed and screamed at them to not call again since i am on the do not call list and then they perceded to call after 630 at 7:59, 8:33, 9:01, and 9:03. these s.o.b.'s are calling my house after 9. always the same indian man who cannot pronounce my name or a few times it is the mexican woman. they are stating i owe 180 dollars in long distance and that if i do not pay my phone will be disconnected.
Have received 2 calls from this number today. They did not leave a message. I believe it is AT&T calling about a bill that is not past due.
**** Hey...when they call, answer the phone and when they ask for so-and-so, tell them to hold while you get him/her. PLACE THEM ON HOLD. SET THE PHONE DOWN AND WALK AWAY!!! This will eat up their time and prevent them from making so many calls. PLUS, THERE'S SOME SATISFACTION INVOLVED!
Only way to stop these calls or to get any action: Just call FBI and say you received a message that the person on the other end said they were going to kill the president, that they had a large amount of explosives to explode near a large chemical refinery. Then they just hung up.
Calls at least four times a day - I told the woman to stop calling and she said nothing, so I asked her if she spoke English and she still didn't answer - so I guess not. VERY annoying.
Have been receiving calls from this number for the past 4 days. When I answer, no one is on the phone.
I'm now getting 4-5 calls a day! They don't leave a message, and there's never anyone on the other end if I do answer.
I called this number after no message was left. It is a recording stating that this is a non working number then, Alltel 84. It then hangs up.
they called me 5 times today.when i finally answered a recording said to hold for at&t, then the call was disconnected. i called at&t to make sure my payment was received, it was. how long are these freaks going to call me?
they are driving me crazy. i finally answered one yesterday and a foreign sounding male started giggling! GRRRRR today i answered and nobody said a word. I googled the number, and found this: litigiousconsumer.com and i have also gotten calls from nco financial-
Must be an automated caller/dialer system.
Never responds, or hangs-up.
Apparently, ATT Collections....but I've paid my bill & caller never actually lets me speak to anybody so it is sort of "one-sided".
They are some marketing company trying to sell something. I did not let them get that far, and told them I will be reporting them if they continue to call. Have been receiving calls from this number for 5 days now.
When I answered, they said they were from ivory white, a teeth whitening survey. The accent of the woman was French. Her nane was Billie something.
I received a call on 6/28 and 6/29 from this number. I did not recognize the number, so I did not answer. Both calls were made about the same hours as some of the other posts here. I'm almost afraid to answer in case they can track it somehow, but maybe I should to see if there's anyone on the other end.
I have been receiving calls from this number sine June 26th. The calls usually come through in the afternoon however today was in the morning. It is rather uneasy knowing that others have been reeiving the same disturbing call without anyone answering on the other end. I tried call ing the number back but said it could not be completed as dialed. Well I hope we find the answer as to why we have been receiving these calls.
i received a call from this number and i didn't answer. good thing i didn't. has anyone else been receiving calls from random numbers and they don't respond on the other end? i have had several of these calls from different numbers around the country.
Received a few calls from this number, but there is never anyone on the other end.
this is the 2nd time i have recieved a call from this number both times there was no answer on the other end
I also just recived a call from them... Now I know not to answer them.. I don't even know who this is..
I just called Everest Connections Corp, and they suggested having my local phone company do a call trace, then file a police report if necessary.

Yea ..This number calls my home # at least three times a day for the last week.I never got to answer though,it on the caller Id early AM too?
this number called me and the phone rang for a long time until i finally answered and they did not respond
I have been receiving calls from this number every weekday between the hours of 8 am and 11 am for about 1 month. Began in May 2007 and continues today in June 2007. No one is on the other line and I have since been ignoring the calls. I need them to stop.
Same as all other callers. 10 to 15 times a day and nobody home on the other end. Haven't tried calling it back but based on the previous comments I can only imagine it won't work.
they called 8 times last saturday. when I answered, there was no one on the other end! when I called back, I got the message that told me it was not a working number. go figure.
This number calls several times a day, usually leaving no message. Sometimes, we get 'please stay on the line for an important message from AT&T ' recording, but no one ever picks up on the other end.
They called three times today, and finally when they called at 8:30PM, I picked up the phone and they asked for my girlfriend. I explained to the person that she was not available, and that we have never had ANY AT&T or Bellsouth or Cingular service at this number (we have Time Warner phone service). The person again asked for my girlfriend, and I again stated that she was not available. The person said she would call back and hung up on me!!!
I called the number back, and got the "please check the number you have dialled...Alltel 84"
Caller ID: Cell Phone SC 803-308-7402
Caller: recording sometimes claims to be AT&T
Caller Type: Collection Agency
do not send me anymore faxes
Useally the call hangs up when I answer. Tonight a man asked for me by name when my daughter answered. I called it back and got a This is not a working number Alltel 84
These people call me every day nonstop. they demand that I give them my credit card information to clear up my past due AT&T long distance service. Which I have NEVER had service through AT & T. This is a lie and an scam.
AT&T....called 8:15AM,10:30AM,11:15AM,1:30PM an asian sounding man wanted to speak to the wife..Told him I dont have AT&T...I quess 3:00 they will call again asking the same dumb question
received fax call with advertisement about refinancing. did not ask for this and do not want it.
Not a working Alltel number. Called Alltel and they looked it up. We are being harassed by someone at this number along with the 843-308-7870 number. Delay in answering, was an Indian man. Thick accent. When I asked why he wanted to speak with my husband, he hung up.
Called it and got the number you have dialed is not a working number...Alltel 84.
This # REALLY IS ATT COLLECTIONS!!! But their system is sooooo convoluted, weird, and faulty that it -looks- a lot like a phisher. I have tons of experience with fraud identification and even *I* was 90% convinced it was a fraud. But I had nothing much else to do and was so entertained by the spiel that I kept them talking and tried to get them to give me more info. Took almost an hr, talking with 3 ppl, to figure out that it was my *Worldnet* service they were talking about, not SBC (local phone,) and not long distance (which I don't use them for at -all-.) Turns out that they hadn't billed me for 3 months. So justnow, for completenes, I called them back (800-222-0300) and described to them *exactly* why it all sounds like a fraud (this web page, the 'unavailable' name, the 'not a working number,' and they said they'd pass the info up the administrivial chain of *RESPONSIBILITY* and do what needed to be done to straighten it all out. Not that I particularly care, because I've had other *very* serious billing issues with ATT that -were- their fault, but a lot of the half/mis-misinformation such as this web page really needs to be cleared up, and they need to fix their system so it stops happening and stops confusing/angering ppl for little/no good reason.
This is not ATT. This is a phishing scam to steal your credit card numbers and bank acct. numbers. Do not tell these thieves anything.
The number has been on my caller ID as much as 10 times in a two week period. I've switched off all cell phones prior to moving from Fla. to Tennessee, switched local and long distance carriers to Charter and turned off 15 year old bellsouth.net email addresses. Since AT&T "merged" with bellsouth I've been bombarded with calls for phones I "owe" on, even though some of the numbers they claimed were a company that I worked for and NOT MY NUMBERS. At one point they actually called me 8 times in one day. I finally blocked the number and then started receiving calls from a blocked number. AT&T is the most crooked company I have ever seen. They billed my company in Florida for full DSL service but gave us something called DSL Lite. When I questioned it, they took $300 off my company bill but then turned the owner of the company over to collections and tried to force her to pay the bill. The tactics they used are nothing short of credit extortion. Now they want to bring cable service to specific neighborhoods in Tennessee in spite of current laws. To see what this HORRIBLE company is trying to do to the State of Tennessee and the local residents; go to: www.keepitlocaltennessee.com
i called AT&T 800-288-2020 and told them I was receiving calls from a number that was not is service they said they would be happy to block that number from ringing thru.. so they blocked it for me. now they can not call bother me.
Wow!!!! AT&T is using this number as well as 843-308-7870 to harrass us. Soooooooooooo glad we cancelled AT&T and switched to internet phone service!
This a new number on the same scam as 803-308-7402. Type this number above to see all the comments made.
Same ol' here. They called yesterday morning and I told them to never call again and quit scamming me. They hit an all new low today. They found my cell number and called from a new number. It's 919-268-3585
This number hads called about 8 or 10 times today alone. I answered twice and no one was on the other end.
they call and ask for some foreign name and i say noone lives here by that name then they ask for his wife and i said noone here by that name and they just hang up.. sometimes i can say quit calling.
ok this is getting rediculous.. they won't quit calling i am gonna call the cops..
They keep on calling me but my bill is paid in full. AT&T is trying to double bill me. They are a bunch of crooks!
FIVE calls today from this number. Every hour and a half, beginning at 9:36 AM. Thought it must certainly be an emergency of kind, but return calls get ALLTEL recording stating it is not a working number. Really?!
They were calling me at work and i noticed a posting from a guy kevin on this website from another debt collector redline recovery and the guy said to go to www.adviceontime.com to get info. I was shocked because that website does have a lot of good info and its free, they dont even require you to register or anything. i tried one of the letters and they havent called me! I hopes it works for you guys too. They also had awesome advice on buying a car!
This sounds like someone got hold of AT&T's files and are calling people who either owe or have owed money to the company. In my case, I owe some back bills and will pay up but only on the AT&T web-site.
We cancelled & went to Verizon, cheaper. say we owe when we don't.
The number is a portable cell number that can be used by anybody. Provider is Alltel Communications which can be called to report this at
I agree with Zimm
Yep, these pukes keep calling, and never leave a message.
If they don't bother to leave a message, I won't bother to call back.
I'm going to loose it!!!
I am so sick of these people calling. They call about 8 to 10 times a day and now I just yell at them to quit calling, but they keep calling. They are driving me nuts. I wish I knew a way to totally block these calls so my phone doesn't ring.
Just getting multiple calls from this number, when you call back it is static.
Calls from (803) 308-7402 are phishing scams trying to get your credit card number and social security number. They told me I had two months long distance past due of $23.08. I knew it was false because my bill is automatically debited and my base bill is over $50. I confirmed this immediately online. Nothing due. Forwarding to FBI fraud division with this page.
Talked to an Asian man and he said I owed $26 for an AT&T bill and wanted me to pay by debit or credit card over the phone. I didn't do it and reported it to AT&T. They said it was NOT them.
God, these cocksuckers just won't stop calling. Fuckin morons need to get a goddamn life.
Been getting A LOT of calls from ATT, especially this morning. They've been hanging up on the machine and my father. But when I've answered they ask for my dad.
They call half a dozen times a day. If I answer its dead, if I call the number back its a Fax tone.
I received 3 calls today (while I was out) from this number 8:41 am; 10:52 am; and 1:29 pm. I checked the number out at
www.melissa.com It states 308 prefix is a cellular located in Orangeburg, SC. I live in MD.
They keep calling us and we don't even have AT&T. They called us 3 times on 12/27 and once on 12/28.
The Asian dude called again. I explained that the call is being recorded.
Will file a complaint with FBI.Gov. Talked to cops and the possible link to terrorist sleeper cell.Looks like FBI will investigate.
Same M.O. as the other folks. Guy claims he collecting from AT&T.
Recording call digitaly for Ohio Department of Criminal Investigations.
Another annoying fax machine beeping sound on my answering machine in the middle of the night.
These people continue to call my house at least 10 times a day. The bill is paid but they still continue to call. When you call to talk to some one this is not a working number. I finally got someone on the phone by using another number and they confirmed that the bill was paid but could not tell me why some one keeps calling my house. i will be changing long distance services.
AT&T has been harassing me day and night over $50 that I never should have been billed since I informed them that I no longer wanted their services. Nevertheless, I paid the bill and they persist in harassing me and my family. AT&T should be held accountable for these blatant violations of the no-call rule.
I'm not giving up here. This is our HOME phone and it's ringing like every 3 hours, the dogs are going insane! I'll let you all know what i find out.
We've been receiving several calls a day from this phone number for the last couple of days. It's always a foreigner speaking, IF you can get them to speak. They claim they are from AT&T.
I just google this number 416 238 3615 and I found this info. Whoever is doing this is should be punished with jail time. What they want?. Assholes.
My mother has been getting these annoying calls since October. She is 85 and they call at 4:a.m. every day, and 30 minute increments they try again. It seems hard to believe that we can't seem to stop this. It is really disrupting her life.
Anyone succeeded in sopping these low lives yet? They call me about 4 times a day. If i ever come face to face with anyone connected with this number, they will be sorry
I hope you get help. The world must be a very unhappy place for you, walking around with all that hate, your mind infested with all those lies. You are sick, sir. Sick. Again: please get help.
Whenever this number calls I get two calls spaced 5-10 minutes apart. I can count on getting these calls at least once a week.
been getting these calls twice a day. Usually at around 4PM. Not only annoying but they are made to my pay-per-minutes cel phone. Since the caller id is UNKOWN i usually don't answer but already i have missed a couple of important calls that also have this caller id.
For whatever is worth.
I keep getting calls from 416-238-3615 also. I searched the web and found a communications company named Globility in Toranto, Canada which has a telephone number 416-238-8000. I suspect the fax's are from there.
I keep receiving fax calls to my office line. Every morning I have at least 3-6 mes. from 416-238-3615. I work for a gov agency. I have contacted my security department for further advice
Has been calling me two to three times a day for months
I called the number on the Fax posted by Jigawatt and asked them to removed me. The number was 800 832 4670. Well see what happens.
WWW.DOMAINREGISTRYSUPPORT.COM is the company. ILEFT THEM A MESSAGE!
6:49 & 7:15 am...on my one day to sleep in...Called last week but it was 5 or 6am...How can I get someone I hate added on to receive these faxes...my number isn't even a fax #!MF!
I keep getting these beep beep beep fax calls too at all hours on our home standard line. I get the not in service message when i try and fax back to it as well. I have called the domain removeal number listed in the comments and filled out the remove form for the CMA next I am calling Att/SBC I'm hoping this is the last call we get from this number!
I agree, let's nuke em!! I am SO TIRED of these calls!! repeatedly mostly in the early morning hours...sometimes 530am, and as late as 10am. the ones before 9 really PISS ME OFF!! have only had this phone number for 1 month and so far, ever weekday, sometimes saturdays too, i get these calls. i called the 800# listed on here to be removed, left a nasty message, short n sweet (with my number to be removed of course) and i also went to www.the-cma.org & filled it out completely, maybe this will work...I hope. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE IN YOUR ATTEMPTS AT A RESTFUL NIGHTS SLEEP< OR MAYBE EVEN JUST BEING ABLE TO SLEEP IN ON YOUR DAYS OFF!!
I received another call this morning from the same number. This HAS to stop!
I am called from this number on a regular basis at about 6-6:30 am. I am on a do not call list and would like to know who this number is registed to.
I've been getting calls from 416-238-3615 everyday for over a month now typically around 8:00a.m. but has occassionally been around 6:00 a.m. It is getting very annoying and wish I could stop it.
I have been recieving calls and they hang up when I answer. Then they asked for my name,..when I told them it was me, they hang up the phone. I tried to call them back, and when I switchboard.com search it finds nothing, if I call the number it says it is not a working number.
We got a call here at work
from 416-238-3615. Googling that number brought me here. I just put all those fax calls on hold and wait for the incoming fax machine to hang up.
I have been getting this call for months, about two times a day at 6am. some have you have posted about filing complaints, has anyone had any success and had the calls stop?
2 calls 10 minutes apart 8:35& 8:45 AM unknown name
also, the reason the recording says "this number is not in service," is because it is registered for outbound service only.
This F'n Co. is killing me...The one night our 10 month old is NOT teething, and actually sleeping, I get yet another call from the 416#...I spoke with my phone company-they had me file a police report and get a case#-they then block that number.
They call twice every morning I am here. Monday and Wednesday. They call at 645am and 740am. How do I get THESE PEOPLE!
Called twice. Did not leave message. Did not speak when I answered.
These people are pissing me off already: Jackasses called me at 4:20 am.....
The FBI should get involved with all their high tech shit..they would find out in a min.
I receive a call from them approximatly every 4 days in the middle of the night. It is most annoying and when I call back it says it is not in service. Calls are from Toronto, Ontario.
THese %&^@@^% are calling me in Hong Kong- costing me a fortune (I have no caller ID here). 2 times a day. Anyone up for a class action? At least some kind of injunction?
We started receiving these calls from 416-238-3615 about 2 weeks ago. The calls are coming in earlier and earlier. This Monday it was at 6:31EST
My 75 Year Old mother keeps getting calls from this number in Toronto, ON at 4:55 am eastern, and then again at 6:00 am est. She lives in Miami,FL. I called the number but only got a disconnected recording. I called "Domain support" and left them a message. I believe that you have to call RCMP and alert them of a possible scam, and they will at least have them on the radar screen. I am a former Police Officer, theres not much that US Law enforcement can do with this. But Canada, can. With enough annoying calls from US Citizens calling the Royal Canadian Mounted Patrol. Someone will eventually open a case file on these people who are stealing your peace, and sleep.
SO CALL ! There is much strengh in numbers. CALL TODAY, and let them do thier job.
I keep receiving a call from a fax line 416-238-3615 at 4am, 6am and 6:am. Showing Toronto, Ontario, is there a sure way to stop this?
If anyone knows a contact at 20/20 or 60 minutes, can we get them to do an investigative report on these hoodlums that have nothing better to do, then send phantom fax signals to people's homes all times of the night and day.
This degree of harrassment needs national attention.
It's really hard to find a true solution when this site doesn't really post ANSWERS separately or even differentiate them. if you have a solution can you please write it in all caps?
REMOVE #(251)633-7014 FROM YOUR LIST TODAY!!

A few times a week at all hours of the night, I get a call from this number. I have two kids under 2 and it wakes them up. I can block calls but not international calls. It just comes up as ONTARIO. Then I call or fax back and the # is out of service.
go right on ahead qwest doesnt give the information out the number is randomly dialing so do a little research first
I called them and did their little "Application". They said I'd be getting a call from their "Senior Under-writter". More info when he calls...if he calls.
I too have recieved calls from this # and called the 877-697-5460 at 10 PM EST and they answered "Preferred Mortgage" I confirmned the number and he asked who was I trying to call and I said the removal dept and he said I can do that what is your #. I asked why did he answer the phone that way and where is he located. He replied he is in Fort Lauderdale and his comapany is contracted to telemarket for other companies. He asked for my fax# and I said it is my home # not a fax and he thought that was odd then he told me my # and asked was that it-so he has caller ID. I informned him that there is an entire web site on this # and they should stop all their harrassment to everyone of the FCC will be contacting them soon. He hung up-Surprise
My zip is 23124
Received several calls from 416-238-3615, Caller ID: *ONTARIO* Latest on 9-25-2006 @ 9:42am. None were answered.
800-591-7398 ext: 2621
called both, we will see.
Got to love the web, being able to solve this problem will be great. Thanks for everyones help.
Peace - Susan
About five times daily we get a call that reads unknown caller and then right after that call we recieve a call from this number. When we pick it up when it says unknown noone answers. When the cellular number comes up, we picked it up and were told it was AT&T wanting money, which the amount did not match our phone bill and the person spoke with a serious foreign accent. We called AT&T and were told that they do not call people from cell phones for anything. This makes me think this is fraud????
I also took Glenn's advice and called 1-877-697-5460 and they told me it would take about 5 days to remove my number. I also logged up with removemynumber.com and with www.the-cma.org
We have been receiving these calls from 416-238-3615 for at least 3 months probably 2-3 times a week and this morning awoke to two calls at 4:30 am EST. Had enough and hopefully this will be the end of it.
I took Susan's advice and I did in fact call 877-697-5460 and spoke to a gentleman who claimed he was the answering service. He explained that this company that's doing all this faxing, is a mortgage company based out of Canada and Florida. I expressed my disbelief in how they can systematically market by a dialer all times of the day and night and just harrass people. He assured me that my number would be removed within 48 hours and he would relay all this info to his "boss" I also directed him to this page. Not sure if he was part of an answering service or part of the cause, but I made myself very clear to him and got him to this page to read all this agony. When I hung up with him, he was doing some light reading here.
Everyone.. Call 877-697-5460 and tell them to take you OFF THEIR LIST.. How can they just think they are calling fax machines??????? These are residential phone lines.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE.
Received 4 calls
10-05-2006/ 8:21am, 9:01am
10-09-2006/ 8:24am, 8:36am
Picked up once- fax tones
Other 3 calls left fax
tones on machine.
I receive calls from this # regularly. I've turned my fax machine off and set up a service with efax instead for an additional fee. Each night I have to turn the ringers off on my phones. I set up call block as well as anonymous call block with my local phone company but when I try to enter this #, it says, "We are sorry the number you have dialed is not available with this service." Unfortunately this is not the only # like this calling me, all of which say the same thing when I try to block them. We need to get together and somehow put an end to these nuisance callers.
according to att. to get on the canadian do not call list, call 416-391-2362
or go to www.the-cma.org
takes up to six weeks and you have to reregister every few years.
thank god my phone was on silent...
Ok, fellow, want to kill the idiots who keep faxing at all hours of the day and night fans. I was getting these calls daily and nightly and probably in another life until I called them. 877-697-5460. Wait through the menu and talk to a really nice lady at the end. Inform her, in a very loud and not so very nice voice, that if the calls don't stop, you will be calling the Canadian and American newspaers and telling them all about their practices. I did and the calls stopped. Good luck!
We get a call from a fax at (416) 238-3615 every morning around 6:00 am. Every morning, it's like my alarm clock now.
Add me to the list. Three calls on my answering machine, 2 minutes apart each. Just started two days ago. At least it's not in the the middle of the night!
We were receiving calls regularly back in 2005. We took our phone off at night to avoid this. The Police had to ring out doorbell to advise us of our son's death. All because of this harrassment number 426-238-3615. The calls stopped for a long time and now they're back. Received three calls at 5:20,5:30 and 5:40 A.M, only to bring back so many sad memories. It's amazing that nobody can do anything about this harassment. These individuals should know how they have turned my life upside down. I would just change my number but it's not that easy with the line of work I'm in. Where are our enforcement people? How do they allow so many people to get harrassed?
getting calls on my phone at 8 20 and 840
This was so annoying I borrowed a fax machine to see what was being sent. Some stupid ad. I am on the no call list too. You can call them at 877-286-5812 or fax them at 877-225-6262 or go to www.removemynumber.com and enter PIN # 13275 plus your phone no. to be removed, according to the fax. We should all complain to the FTC and nag them about waking us up over and over and over . . .
I don't know if this will help, but telemarketing is regulated by the CRTC in Canada. Here are the rules governing the practices: www.crtc.gc.ca
I keep receiving a call from this number. When I answer it sounds like a fax machine. It will call several times per day. Time and date of call: 10:30am on 10/11/06. The caller ID just showed the number. And it's getting very annoying.
I called their (REAL) number today and got their automated attendant. Too bad for them, their automated attendant seems to go through a repeated loop with their "welcome to domain registry" speech. So I let the phone sit there for about 30 minutes while this recording played over and over. It's not costing ME anything, because it's an 800 number. Ohh, but it's costing them! I'll call em everyday if I have to and let the phone sit there for hours. Then, when they try to call ME with their annoying fax thing, my number will be busy, busy racking up the minutes on their phone bill!
sick and tired of these fax machine calls.
If I want the product I would call that company, but since they can't have my fax number they call my home phone number and zing me with beeps. some one has got to get these telemarkers off the phone line period!!
We've received a number of calls from this fax on our business line. I've tried faxing a message back but also get the not in service response. Beyond annoying!!! I guess that's what they hope to accomplish when they're not even trying to get our fax machine. Get a life?
called a couple of timesjust fax tone after I answerede
This number keeps calling me!!!

I received calls from 9:30 until 10:40 around 10 calls in all. I keep answering and hanging up I even let it go to voice mail. The caller ID states unknown then it presents the number 416-238-3615
Just started getting calls from this number this morning, three calls already... does anyone know the common thread linking us, or is this just random?
I Get This Call With A Fax Machine Beep About 2 Times Every Morning Has Anyone Figured Out How To Stop This?
Fax machine phone calls started at 4:30 this morning.
Received 2 calls starting at 5:30 AM. Answered one call and it was a fax / computer attempting to make a data connection. *69 gave me the number as I did not have caller ID on this line. When I attempted to call it back, I was informed by recording that I did not have access to this long distance network. A reverse search on www.theultimates.com revealed the number list to somewhere in Toronto, Ontario Canada.
We also received 3 phone calls this morning beginning at 7am EST. Can't get rid of them - it's a fax.
I got at least one today at 1:01 pm. My phone number was an old doctor's office fax line. I don't know how long it's been out of service but it's been a year now since we have had this number. I thank all of you for your website suggestions. If there is a class action I would be happy to be in on it! I got another call today from 208-726-5442 which is out of Ketchum Idaho. Yeah, more than one to worry about stopping.
Received call at 9:59 am. Caller ID=Ontario
Registered last week (10/5) to get my number removed:
But today (7 pm) I am getting more calls (2 do far).
that makes it 9/27, 10/5 and 10/9 so far
I keep getting calls from this fax number. I registered my phone number on www.removefax.com to remove my number from future fax solicitations.
3 attempted fax on my cell phone within 1 hour then nothing for 3 days then 1 attempted fax on my OTHER cell #.
Got new number 3 weeks ago. This number is faxing. Calls at 10:29 am and 10:19 AM - 10/5 at 10:39 am and 9:59 am - 10/4 at 6:36 am and you get the point. I like being a victim. If there is a class action, I'm in.
I too have been receiving several calls, during early morning hours from 416-238-3615 and would love to know how to file a complaint and with whom
Just as I am going into REM sleep at 2:30 AM EST, these crazies call and a FAX sounding beep comes up. Does anyone turn these calls into a federal agency?
I get a call from this number every other week and it's always when I'm not available to answer it.
Make it stop, everyday beep beep beep AHHHHHHHHHHH
Keep getting calls from this fax.
Fax at October 06, 2006 13:02 CDT from this number. Showed "TORONTO, ON" on the caller ID. Fax is here:
If there are any lawsuits related to this company, please let me know - email@example.com
I got my first call from 416-238-3615 this morning at 8:48 AM (EST). I got a second call from an "UNKNOWN CALLER" at 8:56 AM. I got a third call from the same Ontario number at 9:05 AM. Then I did a Google search for the number. I found this site. I see a zillion other people have months and months of the same thing. Fantastic. It's great that I have this crap to look forward to. If someone has the verifiable name and address of the source, I will resolve this problem quickly.
Received call from this # again, transferred it to the fax machine..it was a one page fax offering "Three Vacations for the price of one." The # to sign up is 800-315-4926 and the removal # listed is 866-395-8075. I have also filed a complaint.
I recieve caals from 416 238 3615 everyday around 3am, the number calls bask continously for 5mins. i think it is a fax, i just want to know how to stop all these calls, it is annoying
they keep waking me up an hour before my alarm is supposed to. every other day, twice in half an hour.
They have been calling me all month in CA, every 5 minutes was only during the AM now in the PM as well. I have filed a complaint with Canadian authorities and FCC asking them to reference this website. The other number they are using is 562-318-0406. I am also going to file a complaint with my local phone carrier, as suggested here. I believe you can also email your local state attorney general's office. Another problem with DOVE at 800 679-0336. Somehow it seems that they are related because they all happen to call on the same day. DOVE Foundation has been sued for 70K for making harrassing phone calls.
Oops, after calling us several times on the 27th of September, they are back today, 8 days later!
We have no fax, which hopefully makes them quit eventually!
We are in Texas 76308
I got a call from this slime bucket too. Same thing, a fax tone, and caller ID shows "Name unknown". The call was made at 9:51am PT on 10/5/06. Please find and castrate them.
got two calls back to back, probably 5 minutes apart, from this number on 10-05-06 at 10:15AM and 10:20AM respectively. Please stop wasting my toner and paper...
called from this number at 6:04 am on tuesday morning
Sorry, for the wrong number listed. It's early here and the fax call woke me up. The number to call to block Canadian calls is 416-391-2362. You can also register online at www.the-cma.org to have your number placed on the Canadian Do-Not-Call list. Again, GOOD LUCK ALL!!
I, as most of you, have been getting fax calls from 416-238-3615. I am on the do-not-call register but I know they don't care. I'm willing to throw some $$$ behind stopping these guys. Does anyone have any idea what company this is????? In the mean time, I will ask SBC to block all canadian calls to stop these idiots.
Two calls before 0830 THursday Oct 5
I have been getting fax calls on my cell phone from this number for about a month.
Tried faxing back, said it wouldn't go through as dialed. I am going to call the number left by Paul.
My caller id just shows the number, no name.
4:22 am PST
Got a call around 4:15. Talked to my mother earlier, siad something about offering me money and that he had talked to my teachers? And it is from Montreal?...who is this?
THEY ARE MOTHERS FUCKERS JUST LIKE THAT SOME AND SOMEDAY WE WIL FIND THEM BELIEVE ME SO WHO ARE THEY JUST MOTHERS FUCKERS. YOU NEVER KNOW WHERE THEY CALL
JAJAJAJAJJAJ VERY FUNNY
continue getting calls from toronto, on.
Call came in at 5;32AM.
I can't find out who this is.
I also get regular faxes from this number at all times of the day and night.
I'd like to make it stop, too!
I get a call from this number every other day at the office. It comes through as a beeping sound only, so im left to assume its the tone of a fax. I do not know how they got my office number. I've tried calling the number back but it just says "the number is no longer in service, check the number and try again.." yadda yadda yadda. I'm just glad they dont have my cell phone number.
I have a method of handling these that seems to work sometimes. I will be glad to share. I have printed up a black and white fax cover sheet that basically says how I feel about these annoying faxes that wake me at odd hours & use my fax, ink, and paper to advertise their crap. AND THEN (and here's the kicker), I have TEN pages of black paper, which I made by marking all over them with a black magic marker. I fax my cover letter to them, the fax they sent me and all ten black pages. If a company persists, I do it about five times. We have free US long distance so it doesn't cost me anything, but they come back to lots of wasted paper too! I have never had a company send faxes after I did it the second time! So far, though, I have not been able to get through to the latest PEST NUMBER (416-238-3615). Since they called me at 6:15 AM on 10-04-06, I am going to try to call their fax back in the morning at roughly the same time. Maybe they will have their fax on, trying to annoy other people & I can give them a taste of their own medicine.
I got a call from them on our fax, too AT 6:15 AM on October 4, 2006!!! I used one of the phone features to get the number of the last number that called us and tried to call them back, but I got the lady who says, "We're sorry. The number you have calld has been disconnected or is no longer in service...."
Try calling any of these people at 4am, but make sure it's Canadian/Eastern time. www.the-cma.org
been getting these calls all too often... called my service provider which is qwest. ok, if you also have qwest, this applies to you.
right after getting one of these calls you need to call *57 and this will activate a phone trace from the qwest end. after three instances of this, the qwest legal dept takes over and i'm told they persue this kind of thing vigorously.
I received this call at 12:30 pm on my cell phone while I was at work. I cannot believe how many people are getting this call. How are these people getting our phone number? Is it random from a telemarketing list or did all of us fill out the same form somewhere.
I have called Domain Support Registry a dozen times. Each time they give me different excuses. They are based out of New York. My guess is they have outsourced to a mass fax company. He said they would only ever send two faxes. He also said he has not received any complaints about mass faxes. I talked to Mark and Michael. They are both very rude. They won't let you speak to a supervisor.
What do you want to bet that if you give this web site your phone number, they'll sell it to more marketers?
I've gotten about a dozen of these, all on my cell. This afternoon, they've called three times. Caller ID usually says "0". However, the second call today, it gave me the phone number, 4162383615:
"Boop... boop... boop... boop... boop... boop..."
(Now that I have their number, I call back.)
Haughty, stuck-up sounding female voice: "The number you have reached is not in service."
Haughty, stuck-up sounding female voice: "This is a recording."
Haughty, stuck-up sounding female voice: "The number you have reached is not in service."
Haughty, stuck-up sounding female voice: "This is a recording."
(I call 800-591-7398)
Man's voice: "Hello, domain registration support, this is Michael. How may we help you?"
Me: "Boop... boop... boop... boop... boop... boop..."
(Michael hangs up.)
I suggest that everyone call Michael and his like, (when you have unlimited minutes), and "boop" at him until the inbred bastards stop this.
New Health Plan fax from same people who send America eFind faxes
called my CELL phone twice so far today, 20 minutes apart.
also got 'no data' calls before...10 minutes and 2 hours. and no message of course.
Got a call from a fax at 416-238-3615 at 5:35am Eastern time. Oct 3, 2006.
Caller ID says ONTARIO
got 5 phone calls from this number today. A few months ago, the same phone # called us numerous times in the middle of the night. ARGGH
I've been receiving various "faxes" for months. Just recently the 419-238-3615 began appearing on my caller id. These calls are beyond annoying. One piece of maybe helpful info I have is that a business used to have my ph#, but no one who calls for this "business" can tell me anything about it. UGH!!!
I get calls at all hours in the night and it wakes me and my baby, I am PISSED! Call 1-800-591-7398 (www.domainregistrysupport.com). Tell them to take your number off, call them 12 times just to annoy them! I think we should try to get a class action against them. I am gathering as much info as I can.
Another 3 AM call, sounds like I'm in a lot of company here in Seattle and elsewhere.
Seems like I m not the only one getting that call! This number had been calling at least twice a day for the past week! Jusr so you people know, the area code (416) is for Toronto, Canada. (416) is mainly used for downtown toronto and the greater Toronto area as well as cell phones (416)in this area. (i used to live there). This fax calling us is so ennoying!!!!!!
Recieved a fax call 6am, Oct 2. 416-238-3615.
I did not have my home fax on (thanks to this crap) but will try to catch the fax. It is best to file a fraud complaint against whatever business is soliciting via the fax. I believe Canada still has to abide by US laws, and junk faxing is ILLEGAL. Period. There is no "removal list" requiremnet for junk faxers--it is illegal to do it in the first place.
One word of caution-- DO NOT call the "remove" numbers. In most cases, they are only used to put your number on a "hot list" to be sold to more junk faxers. This junk faxer KNOWS that what they are doing is illegal--I doubt they care to actually maintain a Do Not Call list. The best is to keep filing complaints with the FCC, and the most local government office to where this junk faxer is--the more complaints, the sooner they might take action
I am also recieving calls from this company at odd hours the most recent was at 6:26 a.m. when I tried to call the number back ....it said my call could be completed as dialed...thats funny they woke me up this morning.... this is just one of many calls
Fax arrived at 2:02am on 9/28/06 called "Alternative Energy Trading Report. Sent from somewhere in the eastern US time zone. Number given for "Fax Removal" is 866 419-1638. I'm sure I had a fax from them a few months ago too.
3:10 PM call first one that I know of . Zip is 61244 We didn;t answer the phone .
3:10 PM Ontario Call I hope they don't start calling us in the middle of night or real ealy AM like some of you . I went through call history since August 11 but I didn't see any other Ontario calls listed . We didn't answer the phone .
Next time they call, just say "wait a minute" put the phone down and go about your chores. They will not call back a second time.
I get calls from 416-238-3615 all the time at all hours day and night.
I keep getting faxes from these idiots every day. I don't want to refinance my house, I don't want two airline tickets, I just want you stop faxing me and waking up my baby from her nap!!!
Mine says Ontario Call 416-238-3615. I tried to call the number on the bottom to stop receiving calls, but its disconnected (ooooh, what a shocker)
There's got to be a way to stop this nonsense.
Got a call from this number on my business phone at 5:36 this morning. Sounds from all the comments that I'll be hearing more from them.
Got a call from block numbers for hours then got a call from this number and it was a fax machine to. In fact I got another call from this number while typing this message.
Been getting these damn things for a long time. I guess they are from one of our Russky "allies"
called my fax machine with number at bottom to remove call 866-419-1638. I have gotten repeated faxes of this sort in the middle of the night and have called the listed removal numbers. it is always a recording that says it will remove my number.
Thanks for the CMA website Bruce. Hopefully reporting to them will do some good. In addition, the FCC complaint URL is: www.fcc.gov
and the National Do Not Call Registry URL is:
People, I feel your pain, but bitching here won't help. Complain to the FCC (whether or not No Not Call applies to Canadian numbers, the FCC must at least liase with them), and to the CMA. The squeaky wheel will eventually get some oil. And if you find anyone who's actually bought into this scam, whatever it is, beat them. These crooks aren't doing this just to be annoying, someone's making it profitable for them, just like e-mail scams. And as JJ said, they're probably not actually in Canada, just abusing that country's phone system. Nobody in Canada is waking us up, though their lax phone security standards are facilitating others.
Had calls at 5:30 am, 3 this afternoon, and they are now (9:08 pm) trying again. We have no fax, luckily, because if they get through, they'll be trying every day.
We have been reciving calls from this number nearlly every eveining for months. I just registared with the no call list thru the Canadian Marketing Assoc. I'll let you know if it works.
We've been getting repeated calls from this number this evening. Caller ID said 'UNKNOWN.'
My zip is 77377.
Ours is a private home and phone number.
we are in Texas, on do not call list. First call at 5:30 am this morning!
irritating, several calls from a fax
Receive calls from this number frequently. Message shows caller unknown.
Another number calls all during the day and night but the numberis not listed. All I get is a beep. My zip code is 28110
non-stop calls from these low life gutter sucking morons. sent an email, but expect no resolve. that they can't be stopped is a crime.
Thanks to this Web site I learned that my insticts were right- a scam phone call. I am on the do-not-call registry and am pointing in my complaint to them and U.S. Cellular this thread of documented abuse of calls from this number.
This has been happening for months. We just moved here 3 years ago so I thought we had someone's old fax number as our phone. My caller ID says "ontario" and this number at least 2-3 times a week. Yesterday it was at 530am. Today 848am....UGH
They call often but I never bothered to investigate before..... apparently they're bothering a lot of people!!! Iti s always absurd hours. I will call my carrier to report the nuisance-- not that they'll do anything!! Tonight it was a call at 10:14pm followed immediately by two more calls from "unknown."
4:00 ET, every couple of days.
I received call from this number at 1:17 pm and again at 1:23pm. The first time showed the numbet but said unavailable the second time. I receive these annoying calls on my cell day and night and have not figured out who is sending them.
Faxes come every day from this number - incredibly annoying
Well first my wife recieved a call from a (416) 777 7776 number asking for me (used my name) and thinking it was one of my buddies she said "hes at work right now can i take a message". The guy then just hung up. Then right after this (around a minute or so) she received a call from this number (416) 238 3615 and once again the guy asked for me using my name. She recognized the voice and said "I just told you hes at work" . The man then said "well in that case why dont you pull down your panties and show me your ass". This isn't just some "fax scam" This is serious. I've notified the military police on my AFB and hopefully they can track the number. Do you guy/girls have any other info that could be useful. Thanks
phone manufacturers fault.... they could easily design a BLOCK/IGNORE feature on your actual telephone/cell-phone, but will never do so...since the phone companies are in bed with them...
the add-to contact/designate as silent ringtone is best idea i heard so far...the idiots still leave voicemails though..freakin russian scammers! right up there with the nigerians...but more annnoying..
I GET THIS # ON MY CELL PHONE ALL TEH TIME,,
I'm getting extremely late night calls from 416-238-3615. 11:30 pm and later. Would like this to stop!!
this # calls me weekly. early morning it needs to stop sound like fax sometimes. the # is unkown then it will show up
Got a call at 0925hrs on 9/26/2006. caller ID said Toronto , ON. and the pnon # 416-238-3615 It beeped paused beeped etc. so I hung up. Then at 0933hrs I got a call from an unknown name, number. It did that beep thing again. So I hung up Again. Someone needs to catch these people(s)
fax call to me jerks
9:31 AM in NH
I got a call from a fax at 2:30 AM central time. I guess it hasn't been stopped.
I have been receiving calls from 416-238-3615,phone compay unable to block numbers coming in from Canada. When I go to bed I turn my phone off.
We received a call from 416-238-3615 at 4:59 AM Central time. Does anyone know who this is?
I've been receiving calls from this phone number as well. It just started today with calls early morning. We live in Oregon so I'm assuming the only reason the calls haven't been early AM before today is that we are west coast. I'm also receiving another call labeled from "Texas" The one we received this morning is just labeled "Ontario" I've been receiving calls from both numbers for about 2 months. They are definitely fax beeps that I hear when I answer. Postal code 97404. I intend to contact Qwest, my phone service provider to see if I can block both numbers I've been receiving calls from.
I continuously get calls from this number and others. When I do answer all I hear is a beep.
I've turned off my answering machine while at home and to my surprise the number of these types of calls has decreased...but has not ceased.
This fucking company keeps trying to fax their garbage to my ANSWERING MACHINE ... every morning i come in to my office to listen to my messages and get 20 minutes of a beeping fax.......i say we track em' head north and fucking murder their families on national telivision ....
I get faxe calls from this number left at my work email 3-4 times per week. I just got another one at 9:05am PST on 9/25/2006. It is annoying since it is lights up my messages light at work.
I received A Call This A.m., woke me up at 2:58 a.m. P.S.T. "unknown "on the caller I.D.
We are in Orlando, FL and received this call at 9:53AM thinking it was our family in Toronto calling us...very annoying
I have recieved 2 calls on my cell phone from this number. 9/19 and 9/25. Both have been around 5 AM. I saved the number in my contacts and assigned Silent as the ringtone. Wish me luck.
I got a call from a fax at 416-238-3615 at 4:08 a.m. Eastern time. Caller ID said Toronto, ON. Very annoying!!!!!
Caller ID says Totonto ON
Multiple calls at 4;00 30 AM
Number is not valid when I try to return call.
These people should be arrested!
If it is a spoof caller ID, then it sounds like the best way to fight this practice is get the fax printout that is being sent and then note the name and tel number of the Company who is the intended benefitary (listed on ther fax) and then go after them. (Of course the company listed may also be a scam too, like spam e-mail.)
Actually its a re direct number from Russia. They call into Canada which then places a call to the US via this #. Its a scam. I have not found a way to stop it either. Verizon tells me that they will do what they but to not get hopeful.... Definition - You're F&*KED!!!
www.spoofcard.com to see how they may have done it.
I just called AT&T, they recommended the following web-site which is the Canadian equiilvent to the US Do not Caul list.
I also filed a complaint with the Canadian radio TV and telecommunication commission. See link below.
I have had the same problem all of you have had, fax calls day and night. I found that using the phone feature that prevents callers who block their numbers from getting thru helped reduce the number of fax calls that got thru. I also found that the use of the privacy manager feature circumvented the block feature, so I had to shut off the privacy manager.
Good Luck and let's hope for the best.
The number is registered to the following company:
Globility in Toronto, ON
A contact number is posted:
Not sure if this is just the carrier ... if so then they wouldn't be the one spamming, but maybe the one who could put a stop to it.
This number keeps trying to fax to our work number. I tried to send a fax back thinking they were a legit customer trying to fax us to the wrong number in error. It won't go through. They've "called" us about 6 times so far today. At this point I just pick it up and hang it right back up. What would we do without caller id?
I started getting fax calls from this number last year and get them weekly now.. all around 3am. It's getting fucking annoying, I dont have a fax machine, never did. I'm sick of getting woken up in the middle of the night illegally by telemarketers. This is utter bullshit.
Forgot to mention, my number is unpublished AND unlisted. How they got it I don't know.
On Caller ID, had call from (416) 238-3615 - Caller ID had "Toronto, ON" - This was 9/21/06
We changed your phone number because of this fax call, we were getting up to 12 calls a day! The phone number change went through yesterday, and this morning - to my shock - we received the same call this morning at the new number (which is unlisted) ... OH MY GOSH - I wanted to cry!
Canada doesn't have a do not call list yet as far as i know but this article says that canadian companies calling american numbers are not immune from american do not call lists so...
hey everybody, This number is definately from my area.
I live in Toronto, Ontario (in Canada) which is probably why some of you get an ID saying "ontario"
416 is the local area code here in the metropolitan area of Toronto so i'm assuming it's some kind of "fax spam" you seem to be getting.
Last comment, honest. You can send the fax (if you print it out) to 1-866-418-0232, which is the FCC complaint number for spam/faxes.
Ahhh.. the fax DID print out. It's like I said: a spammer fax for loan and 'two free airline tickets'. Here's the phone number on the fax: 877-697-5460
We keep getting the fax beep on our voice lines here @ work. I've transferred the call to my fax machine, but nothing prints out. It's probably some spammer, sending some BS about a stock pick or an amazing loan offer that's 'too good to miss'.
I spoke with Verizon Nuisance Call Center (1.800.257.2969) since we get +/- 3 fax calls per day. They are putting a temporary trace on my line. When these calls are received I will call to report time and number, if available. They will trace to long distance carrier of origin and ask that carrier to deal with the problem. Evidently there is a threshhold in determining when action is to be taken.... SO, the more people asking for traces and reporting nuisance calls will result in action being taken sooner. Please call your carrier. It takes a great deal of persistence to finally speak with someone who is willing to help. I have been trying to find that person for 9 months - and was finally successful today.
This number keeps calling my 80 year old mother in the middle of the night - How can I stop it??? She gets VERY upset
I found the name of the company it is Globility Communications Corp. wwww. globility.ca. I tried calling but it is a recorded voice message and their mailbox is full. They do have a working fax line and also contact mailboxes on their website. I also filed a complaint with the DO NOT CALL division. You can do this if you have registered your number on the Do not Call list. If so attached is the link to file a complaint. If enough of us complain they may bring action against the company.
I have been getting calls from this number daily for about the last week or so.
Sometimes it says unavailable sometimes it just says the incoming number. Sounds like a fax.
Received call at 5:06 AM. Sounds of fax -- nothing else. A nuisance. I see that many others have this same problem. What can we do about it in this sophisticated electronic age?
I TOO HAVE BEEN RECIEVING CALLS FROM THE 416-238-3615 NUMBER AND WHEN I ANSWER, ALL I CAN HEAR IS BEEPS LIKE I AM BEING RECORDED!!! I'VE BEEN GETTING THIS CALL MANY TIMES AND AT ALL HOURS OF THE DAY AND NIGHT AS I GET UP IN THE MORNING AND THAT SAME BEEPING NOISE IS ON MY ANSWERING MACHINE!!! I EARNESTLY IMPLORE SOMEONE TO GET INVOLVED AND HELP US ASCERTAIN WHAT IT'S ORIGIN IS AND WHY THEY CONTINUE TO INCESSANTLY HARRASS US ALL!!!
3 calls today. no fax, though, and line is hooked up to fax
get this number calling alot, weird hours too, "beep beep beep beep."
tryed to get this blocked, called the FCC about it, waiting on email from them to "look into it." sigh.
are company has received these calls for over 2 years now. hired a programmer to find out who and why. i'll let all of you know soon.
this number some how knows when I am sleeping or when I am in the shower. I get this call approx every other day.
Started calling every day -- and continues to call -- can't get it to stop, just called again at 2:35 AM Eastern time. Sounds like a fax machine
Received a call at 6:30 AM this morning.
Got a call at 10:15 PM from this number with a fax tone. Caller ID said "Ontario"
I received 2 calls yesterday and 2 calls today. I have been receiving these calls from a fax for over 1 year. Finally got a number on caller ID -- 416-238-3615
Caller ID says Ontario. I'm going to call Qwest and turn them in for violating my rights as a do not call member.
Started calling every day -- and continues to call -- can't get it to stop, just called again at 5:35 central time. Sounds like a fax machine
they call at all hours. Our phone co says it's a Canadian Marketing Co and US laws do not pertain to them. We had our number blocked from this number through our phone service, but it keeps happening 6 months later. I'm writing to their and my legislative officials. It's an outrage!
Got a call at 11:20 Sept 19, 2006. 416 238-3615 came up on the caller id.
Add our number to their no not contact list.. says it will take at least 6 weeks to take effect. These people should be shot.
From whom and why do I get these fax calls. Most recent ones came Sept 19, 1:15PM and Sept 20, 8:54 AM (ET). [I disconnect the fax printer).
called on my cell phone, interrupted a meeting, only showed the incoming number, no identification, ignored the call, but noted it. zip 20171
i registered at the-cma.org on their do not contact page. thanks for the info bruce. if these people really are scammers and not legit, who knows if they play by the rules and really put us on a no contact list. oh, well. i had to try something!
it keeps calling a business line, everyday for months now. i'm going to try bruce's advise. hope it works!
Bruce - thanks for info -- listed my number on their do not call list - keeping my finger crossed. It's my work cell - very annoying
Our business gets at least 200 calls from this number daily and we only have 60 phone numbers. Hopefully we can stop this.
at 5:49 am eastern time
Hope I won't get anymore.
I got a call from 416-238-3615 at 6:06am 9/19/06. This is the first time and I hope the last.
I got a call from 416-238-3615 at 5:45am 9/19/06. This is the first time and I hope the last.
Twice in ten minutes, not a fax line. Wonder if its related to the phony American Business Directory scam that keeps trying to bill me for an ad that doesn't exist.
They attemped to send me a fax at 4:48 am EST. Listed as toronto, on.
N/A If it was a fax they called on the wrong number. I'm turning them into the FTC. We're on Do Not Call.
Received fax call on my cell phone 3 times within the last half hour (9-19-2006 2:00-2:23pm) Call is coming from an unlisted telephone in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Fax calls from "Ontario" 416-238-3615 received AGAIN 9/19/06 at 4:59 and 5:06 pm (usually they come between midnight and 3AM or 5 to 6 AM). This is just one of MANY calls and various numbers that have been sending faxes to our residential phone.
416-238-3615 Received call from a fax at 4pm / put my fax on auto-answer and got a fax from this # at 4:11 - this is an "auto-dialer" faxing facility which marketeers use to "broadcast" faxes to prospects, suspects etc.
I turn off my phone upstairs when I go to sleep so jerks like these don't wake me up.
Caller ID telemarketer -no voice contact
I received the call atr 5:40 am and it was a fax.
I would suggest using your call block feature *66 or *68, I am not sure if either are right but it should be in the front of your phone book or ask your local phone company for the number.
get calls from this fax machine almost daily when no one is here. these jerks tie up our voice mail system. how do i put a stop to this?
Getting repeat calls from this number. I say we get some pitbulls and some baseball bats...
It's a bleeping fax beeping and it better stop!!!!

I got a call from a fax at 416-238-3615 at 6:05 am est and then another at 6:30 am est. It woke the whole house. We get these calls several times a week. It just beeps. Cannot trace.
This number calleed me severally on the Monday and Tuesday 18th and 19th of September. I have recieved several prank calls on my cell phone and home phone. Sometimes as early as 3am. This is really disturbing.
I have been getting these calls for the past 2 or 3 months...started out as "Nevada"...then about a month ago those calls stopped and not they say "Ontario"...just the stupid fax beeps...I am at my wits end with these FV(&3rs
I get 2 calls in a row from this number, about 20mins apart. Almost every morning just before 7:00am and the next around 7:20am. I'm telling ya, I'm gonna get these motherfu**ers. I'm doing whatever it takes. EVERYONE needs to report this. If the phone company,etc. starts getting overwhelming emails/calls something will be done. Go!

I got this fax 416-238-3615 twice everyday. I try to call back, it isn't real phone number. Any way we can stop this?
Yes, and caller ID says the call comes from Ontario. It's AWFUL.
This number calls my apartment's phone very early in the mornings of most days of the week. It calls between the hours of 6 and 7 AM and 7 and 8 AM. When I answer the phone at these times, the only sound I hear on the other end is a loud, high-pitched "beep"...and then nothing. It sounds as if a fax is coming through. Please, make it STOP.
Sorry the address is www.the-cma.org
The Canadian Marketing Assoc. Try this for name phone and address removal
may take time to filter to this company if they use this info who knows. Or maybe your phone co can block # for you. Am trying both......
I live in Southern California. I receieve a phone call from a fax machine originating from this number every day. This has been going on for 1 year now. The call comes in every morning, without fail, between the hours of 8:00AM AND 10:00AM PST. I've run out of patience. Any ideas? Thanks
i just got a call that woke me up and it beeped the whole time........
annoyance calls for ATT
I'm getting them too - for ATT/SBC I called the annoyance call number at 1-800-348-8727. They will put a "trap" on your phone for two weeks, if the same number calls again they promise to help you stop it
to stop these calls you can dial 416-391-2362 do not call registry for canada pls note charges will apply for that call but it will stop the calls (416-238-3615 is a scam telephone number)
Received call at 2:42 AM. Caller ID said Ontario. Don't even have a damn fax machine. We have to disconnect upstairs phone because of all the early morning faxes.
So tired of these calls. I get them almost every day during the week between 8:30 and 8:45 am central time. "They" try to fax something 3 times and then "they" are done until the next day.
Yep Fax machine from hell.
Seems like this is the source Registrant Contact:
M. Sussman (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Panama Centro, WORLD TRADE CENTER 1236

Seems to be 100% scam related not legit at all.
I have r/c these calls most everyday this week AM and PM

I'VE BEEN GETTING THESE FAX - CALL'S FOR OVER A MONTH. I HATE TO WAKE UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT BY THE PHONE RINGING - FROM A STUPID FAX MACHINE.
Oh, I forgot to give you the number to call. It is 800-591-7398 ext: 2621
I hooked up a fax machine and what came through was a domain registration scam. There is a number at the bottom of the fax to call "if you received this transmission in error". I called and left my phone number to be removed. I'm keepijng my fingers crossed that it works.
This is so disgusting! I'm a senior citizen and run for the phone several times a week, several times a day and it is this fax number.
I've even reported it to the phone company!
4162383615 Please stop!!!
They called me at 5:20am EST and then 5:25 and then 5:30 after which I pulled the phone plug out.
I received 2 calls, one right after the other, from a fax at 416-238-3615 on 9/14/06 at 9:05am and 9:06am EST. Please find a way to end this annoyance.

I am so tired. I get fax's from this number approx. every 2.5 hrs day and night. I tried to fax back to it and it says not in service. Has anyone been able to make it stop?
these motherf*ckers keep calling me every night repeatedly. i'm calling president bush to nuke these motherf*ckers.
Nusiance fax call 7 times on 13 Sep 06 on my cell phone
416 is a Canadian area code in Ontario province. Canada does not subscribe to U.S. do-not-call regulations, hence one possible problem.
got a whole bunch also - all day long...........what's the point????????????? caller id is Ontario; most recent call was 9/13 at 5:24 pm
I've received many calls at all times from this number. I've faxed them with a request to stop calling me. But they keep calling.
We got repeated calls from FAX at 416-238-3615 on evening of 9/12. Any clue how to make it stop?
Yes we know they are a mothers fucker one day they will take the same medicine
Received two calls from this number.
received a call 9:53:11 AM 9.13.06, didn't bother answering
9:45AM Eastern, the message on my answering machine was a fax. When I immediately retuned the call, recording said "number out of service."
Have received many calls from this number. The last
was 9-13-06 at 6:23 am.
Caller Id says "ONTARIO"
Receive calls at all hours, day and night from this fax line. I'd like to fax them back with some choice words but Don't think it would make a difference to people that own a company that would do this.
Rec'd a fax call at 7:32 AM
recvd 2 calls from an apparent fax machine 3:26 pm and 3:18 pm eastern time
Word of advice: i am in BellSouth territory. Before you pay for call blocking or call tracing (this # can't be traced easily), try the Annoyance Call Center in the phone company. They have a contact at this number and sent a request that my number be removed from the call list. i'm crossing my fingers that it works, I'm tired of 2am calls. www.bellsouth.com/acc
Received a call from this fax at 7:38am est
This is not a one-time occurance with this number.
Getting at least 3 calls a day from this fax line, it is tieing up a business phone line.
Received at least 4 calls this morning at 9:34am. Fax machine trying to send something. Did a *69 and this number came up.
We have received several calls between 5-7am.(Texas)
Got another call this morning 9-12-06 at 6:27am - same beeping
7:41 this stupid fax machine called me.
Fax call on September 10th and 11th 2006, several times around 9AM, Ontario Canada on the ID.
Damn Canadians... called at 3:04AM Eastern Time.

I just got one too...fax from ontario
I got a call too, the left a number, which I am not sure i copied correctly, but when I called some spanish female picked up and no word of english..
Logged a call at Monday 9/11 2:12AM EST on my mobile phone (woke me up).
I believe a nuisance call like this is grounds for a fine.
Every DAY we get a fax machine call from this number - wakes us up, can't trace.
Received a call from a fax at 416-238-3615 at 9:10AM Eastern time.
Received a call from a fax at 5:11 AM eastern time.
Received a call from a fax at 416-238-3615 at 3:06AM Eastern time.
They call us nearly every day. When we call back it says it is not a working number.
This is at least the 10th time they have called in three days. I do not answer unsolisited calls and "they" do not leave a message.
I do'nt get an answer when I answer the phone. then when I try to redial it says it is a non working number. They have called three times today
Recieved a call at 2050. Was asked "is this Matt?" I said No, may I ask who's calling?" The guy ignors my question and asks again "is Matt (middle name last name) there?" I reply, "No they have gone to bed." The guy then just says "alright have him call me back at this number," and hangs up the phone. Doesn't even give me the number to call them back just assumes I have caller ID.
Did a *69 to find out who keeps calling and doesn't leave a message on the machine.
caller id reads "Cell Phone SC 803-308-7402". Call came in at 9/01/06 7:35pm Pacific Standard Time. A lady with an Asian accent asked for me. My son and roommate have been getting these calls and when they ask who is calling she will state AT&T. They state she does not have AT&T service. Than they ask "are you Laura?" They persist with "no and she does not have AT&T". This continues for awhile until they get short tempered and smart with the caller. I cancelled my AT&T service both Long Distance and Cell. They billed me anyway. I called them very sternly and they gave me the run around and transfered me to a voice mail after an hour or more each time I called. So I changed from Embarq to Cox phone service because they would not cancel the long distance and kept billing me even after calling Embarq. Now they are calling me from this crazy number. AT&T is a crooked company and they are doing this same thing to my daughter on a cell phone she has not had for 3 years and AT&T reactivated the service without her permission. Her service was cancelled while she was stationed in Japan for three years.
second call this am...8:46 and 10:42. Called # and got this isnot a working #. This is AT#T collections. We just cancelled them and went to Verizon. Better service, lower cost.
AT & T collections.
when I tried to call it back a message tells me that this a non working
