The phone is ringing, and I don't recognize the number, All Caller ID says is, "NAME UNAVAILABLE".
Please help me figure out who is calling and what they want

nonameoncid calls from 5 phone numbers:
What a splendid article! Thanks for the sharing. Waiting for your updating constantly.
I called Pac West (noted 10/15/10 below) at (800) 511-9048. A woman answered immediately on a weekend. I explained (1) that we received calls daily and, most recently, approx 10 calls/hangups within 24 hrs from Cross FM and (2) we wanted all contact from (702) 553-0512 stopped. The calls stopped within 24 hours and have not resumed after a week.
twice to day under cross fm yesterday twice it was crossfire 715 2548261
Always a voicemail with no message. Finally answered and no one spoke.
Stop calling me as this is a DNCL violation
Left no message
Reported as a DNCL violation.
I just called the phone provider for Cross FM and registered a complaint against these idiots. Their provider will contact them and advise them to never call my number again. Of course, they will do the same for you, so here's the info:
Their telephone provider is Pac West - phone 800-511-9048. They answer immediately (not a recorded message - a real human being answers). Tell them Cross FM is harassing you by phone. The Pac West will ask you a few questions and then will advise Cross FM never to call you again.
As I said, I just called Pac West, so not sure how long it will take for Cross FM to stop calling. The info I received from another website is that if there are enough complaints to the phone provider, the company will eventually lose their phone service. I hope so!
Don't ever subscibe to the St Paul Pioneer Press. I did once for a while and have been sorry ever since. For many YEARS there telemarketers now call and call and call. After much hassle the calls stopped for a few years but they are back. Sometimes they call three times a day. I called the Pioneer Press to ask them to take me off the list. They lady was nice and said she would but I don't believe her. I've been lied to by them too many times. Once you have been a customer then the Do Not Call doesn't apply to you anymore. Best thing to do is not be a subscriber in the first place.
Have received multiple calls that leave no message - very irritating. The caller id states "Cross FM" - 702-553-0512. I tried calling the number back but it does not ring and no one answers. I want them to take me off their list!
says they are with the local newspaper and offered us a great rate. We have declined their offer many times and advised them to stop calling yet they continue to call and hang up. When we call back, they dont answer.
Called at 10:55am-nobody there
Called @ 10:35 am CST on 7-31-10, went to voice mail, left no message.
Called at 7:33pm left no message!!!! WEIRD............
Called today at 12.38pm PDT. Went to voice mail, but they left no message. After I read the messages below, I called them. Rang twice, and the line went dead. I am on the Do Not Call list. I'll report the number to donotcall.gov, but I don't know if it's a real number or one that's been made up.
Cross Marketing stop damn calling my home trying to sell me a subscription to the AJC in Atlanta. AJC says they have no ties to your company, you are a fraud.
Last couple of days have been getting several calls a day w/no msg. CID says Cross FM. On DNCL. We're in MN.
I have received several of these calls this week. As you say no one is on the other end and when I don't answer no message on the machine. I want it stopped.
I got a call from that number today. Are they crooks?
Left no message on voicemail
I have several calls from this number. I answered one... no one was there. Why would they call so often?
Calls everyday and leaves a blank voice message, I do not answer.
thesee batards have been calling my housee for the last dangg 2 months/.. sometimes at 6 in the morningg.., i called trhem back and did research as well and come to find their abuncha asians. i even called them back and the voice recoird that answers has a asian accentt.. ITS SOO ANNYOINNGGG..
They routinely call several times a day, I won't answer, my cell phone is on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY. I'm not using my minutes for something so stupid. How annoying and frustrating. Isn't there anyway to stop these phone calls??
I was getting up to 7 calls a day from them from two different phone numbers.
They are a either the Los Angeles Newspaper Group or a company that markets for them. The newspapers owned by them include the Pasadena Star, The Torrance/South Bay Daily Breeze, The Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, The Long Beach Press Telegram, The Los Angeles Daily News, The Redlands Daily Facts, The San Bernardino Sun, The San Gabriel Valley Tribune, and the Whittier Daily News. They're trying to sell you the paper. If you call back a message says all operators are busy and then a few seconds of music play before it hangs up on you. If you call back several times (took me about 6) you can get someone to answer.
I read that you can send an email to email@example.com and ask to have your number removed from their query.
These mother f'ers call all day long. I answered the first and maybe second phone call. They don't say anything!! It's annoying, aggravating and it needs to stop!! Now I just let the phone ring and ring.
They need to stop calling me. This is harrasment.
Calls all the time pretending to be local paper selling subscriptions.
These numbers are linked to identity theft. Do not give any info. Just inform them that you have tracked calls and are informing local police and FBI Bureau. Then actually do that. My last 'subscription' ended up in a -$1900 bank account.
Very annoying. The last time I just answered the phone and laid it down until the line went dead.
Hi Everyone. Typically every 3 months I start getting calls from Cross FM. It's a boiler room of people doing sales for the Longmont Times Call in Longmont, Colorado.
Let's try this. Everyone who's annoyed with these hang-ups, dead-air and late night calls, instead call the timescall and complain.
303-776-2244 - Main Desk
I suggest starting off with, "I'm currently on the DoNotCall registry and have filed a complaint against your business. Do you know the fees associated with that?"
Next, call the TC Line where the paper prints comments by readers and complain. (Be mindful that they post a wav file of your voicemail online. So if anyone recognizes your voice, your anonymity is gone.)
TC Line 720-494-5485
And third, call the Colorado Secretary of State business section and complain. They're really nice folks and will listen.

I hope this helps, I will be doing these things myself. If a few of us do this, hopefully this will stop.
PCR tries all kinds of tactics illegally to contact you and to collect from you. You have rights as a consumer, not that you should not ever pay your bills, but you should not have to deal with the collection agencies. Google Bud Hibbs, his website has great information on what to do or what to expect even a copy of a cease communication letter. For "to Sylvia", it is unfortunate that they began to garnish your wages, but in order to legally do that you should have received a letter of intent directly from Depart of Education for your student loan and then they, not PCR will attempt to garnish wages w/o any response by you. I believe PCR will try on their own, and not sure if it is legal, to garnish your wages, and then it all depends on your employer as to what they themselves know is legal or not. The information for ED to collect is www.ed.gov PCR does not act with integrity in contacting your or in it's communication. They even tried to call my parents and tell them it was an emergency for them to contact me. You have rights as a Borrower from the Dept. of Ed, but that doesn't mean you should shirk your duties to pay, just that you should not have to deal with the tactics or the harrassment of a collection agency. I do have to wonder why the government would use a business who actually practice illegally
i hate them. they call every day. bastards. i am going to track them down in vegas and punish
Over and over again, 5 times today, I dont answer. when I try to call back to ask them to quit calling, the number does not go thru.
no message, called 4 times in two days
They called to my office and didn't say anything.
They just interrupted my work!!!
Call to offer subscriptions to local papers // I was a previous subscriber
Telemarketer that calls previous subscribers of various newspapers to offer the subsciptions
call 2 to 3 times per day for the last 3 days. No Message was left. Caller ID show Cross FM
THEY HAVE BEEN CALLING ALMOST ONCE A NIGHT, NEVER LEAVE A MESSAGE. THEY CALLED TONIGHT AND I SCREAMED AT THEM..NO ANSWER. FELT GOOD THOUGH. FREE REVERSE LOOKUP INDICATES ADDRESS IN LAS VEGAS NV. I WILL CALL BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU FOR THAT AREA AND REPORT NUMBER AS HARASSING PHONE CALLS.
I have been dealing with these peple for several years now, and they keep contacting me. I have NEVER had a student loan, and have verified with them that the ss# they have is not mine, but yet they keep sending me threatening letters. They are scumbags. What legal recourse do I have? I am 50 years old, work hard every day and unfortunately, could not afford to attend college, and I damn sure didn't get a student loan. I'm tired of dealing with this issue. I have asked them REPEATEDLY not to contact me anymore, but that has not happened. It's ignorant that some people assume that you are a deadbeat because of the actions of these people. Just a bunch of sheep...
Nevermind, I see someone else has already done the research as I get to the end of the comments here.
I did a little research, and the first mistake all of us have made is in thinking that "Cross FM" is a radio station. It isn't, it is a private residence, of an F.M. Cross. It is a land line, and for $14.95 I could've found out who owns the line, since it is unpublished. When I get some money later this month that I can use that $14.95 for this, I am going to find out once and for all who the hell this is. Then I will let the rest of you know.
9pm at night, received my 7th call today. Last call was very abusive, told me if I don't want the call turn ringer off on my phone. Complained to Times Call Newspaper after 4th call today, was told no control over telemarketing company.
Same here - number and Cross FM
Calls several times a day, for the past month
QUIT CALLING ME REMOVE ME FROM YOUR STUPID LISTS. YOUR NOTHING ANYWAY.
St. Paul Dispatch news paper refuses to quit calling even though I am on the do not call list.
Started out with the whole Call is being recorded, very quickly, mind you. Then asked if this was a company I worked a job with some years ago. She seemed cheery, but thinking back, sneaky. I told her I don't know where they are now. Then she said domething very peculiar: that she found my number on Craigslist, and that said company was using my number. I really didn't think anything of it at the time. Hope they leave me alone!
The only thing I can figure is the company used me as a reference without my knowledge?
They call all 4 of our business lines every day, they won't take us off the list, and they won't stop calling. When answered they won't speak. I called them back and a guy said they would remove us, i have gotten 2 calls since then right after we talked.
called many times but they don't speak or leave a message.
This number has appeared on my Caller ID several times a day for the past several weeks. I use Caller ID to screen calls like this from telemarketers. My number is listed on the National Do Not Call register.
This number has called repeatedly EVERY evening for the last 2 weeks. I have caller ID to filter out calls from people I don't know (telemarketers) because of calls like this.
I got a call from this number despite being on the do not call regestry. The caller ID said it was Cross FM. They said they where from my local news paper but when I told them I was on the do not call regestry they said "Oh, so its that way huh?" and hung up.
they routinely call, trying to sell newspaper subscriptions to a local paper: the Hammond Times. They are a nuisance.
called twice so far today..leaves no messages..annoying!
They call and never leave a message. They call at least 2-3 times a day.
Have been getting calls everyother day to a business number in Michigan, id says Cross FM - I don't answer and no message is left.
Have called several times. If we pick up nothing on other end but some faint sound. One time they said it was for St. Paul Pioneer Press.
The call I got from this number was for the Pioneer Press holiday special $13.00 for a whole year.
We are on the Do not Call list as well. I did not answer, no message was left on the answering machine. I live outside the Twin Cities, so my guess it is solicitors representing one of the local newspapers.
They call and call and call, and I'll never answer. What happened to the Do Not Call list?
This is a newspaper telemarketer selling the San Jose Newspaper...if you call back the number from a phone other than the receiving phone number you can contact them...they told me the computer will continue to call until it registers the phone call from the service. So i used my cell phone , hopefully I won't receive any callsfrom cross fm........happy holidays
They called me four times without a message. The last one was 11/12/08.
Someone called me with caller id "Cross FM" number 702 553 0512 today at 11:00AM. I didn't answer.
I know some people that work for PCR, they are exactly what you think they are! Low life scumbags with no skills but being a thug over the phone.
CROSS FM. They're baaaaaack. I never pick up and they never leave a message.
I used to see caller id 'cross fm' have no idea what that is. Now caller id for this number says 'private name' but there's never anyone on the other end, no messages either
Repeated calls representing the Pioneer Press in St. Paul. We ask them to stop, but they won't.
These guys never give up no matter how many times you tell them to take you off the call list. They are telemarketers contracted to sell your local paper. They have different numbers they use as well.
Same issue as everyone else. Let's hope something is done about it.
The Phone rang 4 times and then stopped ringing. I tried to call the number back and telephone company recordings said it had been disconnected.
this number is calling for 3 weeks already i don't recognize the number and i am getting sick and tried of them calling me. i want them to stop.
This is a telemarketing company that is trying to give away news paper. It is too obvious for me to accept what they offered. I live in San Mateo, California, but the company that calls has a phone which is out of state. So I am filing a complaint ...
my phone caller ID shows : Cross FM 702-553-0512
I recommend sending everyone below an email and then calling them up and asking if they would please take you off of their call lists. I did this and they said they would remove me.

If you do not wish to receive calls from CROSS FM or Cross Fire Marketing, please send an e-mail to email@example.com to request removal from their list. Several people have done this and they actually received a reply stating they would be removed. I did this and this is the reply I got almost immediately after sending my email:
From CROSS FM: "I will handle removing your phone number from our calling files. I appoligize for the inconvenience.- Mickey Gross". So, it looks like it works. Try it! Hope this helps.
They called me this morning but I screen my calls so I didn't pick up. I live in CA, why the hell is a LAs Vegas company calling me? I'm on the do Not Call List as well.
called consistantly over couple weeks and left no message
Call twice a day no message nothing started 7/9 and continuing call id Cross FM
Any idea who this is? The phone rings, but no one is one the other line
they call and hang up all the time, several times a day!
does everyone have the last 4 digits 2051?
Second call this week...on a brand new phone number, too! I think I'll answer next time and play along for a while, just to see who it is.
stop blogging false info,
"Imply that failure to pay the debt could result in arrest, imprisonment, or garnishment of wages"
obviously the first part is right, but i owed this company money, for by student loans, i refused to pay as i am a single mother, then my last paycheck they garnished my wages now i have to pay out of my check and pay ontop of the garnishment for 9 months to get my garnishment to stop, so, thanks for your advise but get your shit straight.
This number has called me repeatedly for a week. I have even called it back, but the same thing happens: it rings a couple of times then the line goes dead. It just goes dead if I answer the call as well.
If you owe student loans with the dept of edu--- expect to see this number they're contracted with the government for people to pay their loans :(
No caller ID info, left no message.
I get called 2-3 times every day. This has been going on for a week.
Received call today 3/8/08 Saturday. Left no voice message. Call ID "Cross FM"
This Phone Number (Cross FM- (702) 553-0512)called our Home Phone (landline). We just started getting these calls on 03/04/8, and 03/05/08 (3 times) and 03/07/08 (2 times) I do Not answer it, as it just seems fishy to me. We live in Indiana.......

Ever wonder where drug addicts, prison parolees, and newly released mental patients go? They become debt collectors....oh.....that's why they're BRAIN DEAD DIRTBAGS!
Here r the SOME numbers they use:
702-553-0512, 201-474-2989, 8668838608...they have thousands numbers, local to ur area. JUST IGNORE THEM...DON'T ANSWER.
I have been receiving annoying calls from this number lately and this is what I found out about them. They are a telemarketing co called Cross Fire Marketing, used by the NAA(Newspaper Association of America)...yah!they have an asso TOO. If you have terminated ur newspaper subscription then u r on their list, either for collections, to renew or simply start a new account.
Here's a link i found...naavendorlinks.com
Only if they understood that u CANNOT get business by BUGGING consumers to buy/use ur product...it turns them OFF.
Have called several times. LV area code? Sickos looking for internet attention I suppose...
This number has been calling, 3-4 times per day, including Sundays, between 8am and 10pm, each time I pick up, I say "hello" up to six times or at least 2 minutes 30 seconds and each time no one answers. Friday night I asked the "nobody" on the other end to take me off of their call list. The following day and night, Saturday, they called again, and again, and again, and on the third call at 10pm I finally said, "stop calling my number if you're not going to answer, I will call the police and report this number for harassment the next time you call." and sure enough, today, Sunday, I received three more calls. I finally called my local police department's non-emergency number to report the harassment. They advised me to contact my local telephone service provider and make them aware of the problem, they told me to *57 on my phone after each call, up to 5 more calls and the police have sufficient evidence from those *57 traces to issue a warrant for harassment against whomever these calls are coming from. Because clearly, this is now a case of unethical business practices and unsolicited business harassment. If anyone else is receiving these calls, I suggest you do the same.
they arent allowed to leave voicemail... next time they call ask to get taken off of the national do not call list and they have bto remove your number... they calls should stop within 24-48 hrs to get out of system
The 702.553.0512 is from a marketing Company (Cross Fire Maketing) located in Las Vegas, NV.
They are hired by YOUR local newspaper company to market subscriptions. Evidently the newspaper companies do not screen or notify Cross Fire if the number is listed on the National Do Not Call list.
Cross Fire Marketing utilizes an automated dialing system that automatically dials phone numbers provided by your local phone company. When the system detects an answered call it transfers the connected call to one of their 25 marketing agents. If none are immediately available then the called party hears no one and assumes a prank call.
They only have 2 incoming lines so that's why when irritated people call back to the number they see on their caller ID no one ever answers.
I believe their website is: www.crossfire1.com
Stupid jerks called me late at night and mid morning. I am on the DNC list too!
Recieved tonigh, I told these people never call again.... I doubt they will.
Received a phone call 2/6/08 @ 3:33pm, picked up phone said hello 3 times, no one answered on the other line then they hung up. I called back phone number just rings no answer.
Oh yeah and I am on the do not call list, also!
The number was on the caller ID a few times already, and we just had the phone turned on a week ago. There was never a message,though. Finally my girlfriend answered tonight, and they specifically knew my name and asked for me. Was really wierd!
Alright this Cross Fm is killing me I am getting 3 to 4 calls a day and I never get an answer to yell at them so I am looking for a way to stop them.
Had my Verizon number changed about a week ago. This number called me twice today.
Jan. 21, 2008
This sounds like a "reverse international charges" scam. The +44 is the UK international calling code, so I think the caller is hoping that you'll *69 and wind up paying 5 GBP a minute plus a connect charge or something crazy like that. Block the number from your carrier, if possible.
Receiving calls from this and similar numbers (such as 208-846-2163). They are always regarding credit card soliciting. Many times, after answering, there will be a long dead silence, followed by an abrupt disconnect. There never is an option to press a number to be removed. After conducting a search of the other number listed, I found that it is owned and operated by "Qwest Corporation" in Meridian/Boise, Idaho. I filed a complaint with the Attorney General's Office since it is illegal for this type of telemarketing, regardless if you are on the Federal Do Not Call listing. I received the response that these numbers are being SPOOFED and that the numbers in question are not even working telephone numbers. They change their number frequently which is how they are avoiding prosecution. At least I've been fortunate enough to identify who's telephone lines are being abused, although we don't know WHO is actually abusing them!
This is getting really irritating. For over a week now this person or place calls about 3-4 times a day and does not say a word. Wish someone could locate and stop them and arrest them for harrassment!!!!!

Mickey Gross CEO
Newspaper subscription soliciting company. They are hired by your local paper. Let your paper know you are not happy. This company violates the DNC list and then report to the DNC list. Keep track of times when reporting.
They have called three times today. 9:29A, 1:56P and 8:07P. We are on the DNC list. 1st call, no one there. 2nd call told not to call back. 3rd call told AGAIN not to call back. These folks are selling newspapers. Pain in the butt!!!
who are they and how did they get my unlisted number
Tried to sell me a special on local paper delivery. I signed up but refused to give credit card info over the phone. When I asked to be billed instead, I got a quick "Thank you" and was hung up on. Now I regret giving my name and address; seemed strange that they didn't have it when they called. I expect I'll get more calls and lots of junk mail from them now, sigh. Found out they are Crossfire Marketing Group with offices in several states.
called 2X today, I answered and no voice, then hang up
called twice today.....how did they get my number??
recieving alot call from this fm cross, not picking up, but they are not leaving a message. receiving a call once a day from the central coast calif.
Called and left no message. Telemarketer? I am the no call list.
Dealing with the agencies is easy. If for any reason the company continues to call you even after you tell them to stop. Don't bother with the FTC, FCC, Attorney General or whatever. Get a tape recorded Answer your phone when they call advise them you are recording the conversation so that is usable in court. If from that point they call just 1 more time. Contact an attorney and give him all the information you may have gathered about the company the recording of your conversation with the collector and your self and sue the living shit out of the company. The company will most times tell you that you can sue the collector them selves. But that is only for 1% of there total worth. When you can sue the company for 500,000 or more depends on your attorney. Google the FDCPA for clarification on those amounts.
WARNING. If you attempt to sue an Agencies and you do have a Student Loan. The loan doesn't disappear. It is transfered to another collection agency and then has more collection cost added. Some Agencies will settle for the value of your loan.
For those of you that DO have Student Loans.
Federally Backed student loans go threw various steps in the collection Process.
1st the Original backer of the loan will call and advise you that you are headed into default.
2nd Once in Default your interest will build up DAILY and You will have "Collection Cost" added to your loans. The Current rate is around 21-23% review your promise notes from when you took the loan out.
3rd If no resolution is made on your loans after Various collection agencies Getting the Collection cost added each time it is transfered, the agency will attempt to garnish your wages. Considering this is a federally back loan it doesn't go to court it just starts. Once started the only ways to stop it is pay the loan off for the total amount owed, settle your loan, or make payments not including what you are already being garnished.
4th If after being garnished and having the IRS take you income tax returns, Your loan still isn't into a form of Voluntary resolution then you student loan may be placed into litigation by the US Department of Education. (Never got to that point). After which i don't know what will happen.
As for Finding your numbers....Have you ever gone to the Mall and seen those contest to fill out you information and may be contacted if you win...Your a MORON if you file it out that is information gathering. Companies set that up for the purpose of getting your information and selling it to companies that in turn make HUGE Data bases for collections agencies to use to track (Skip) people down. WARNING!! If you have EVER given you phone number home or Cell alike out to anyone for anything it then becomes public information to be sold. When you get an "Unlisted" or "Non-Public" number with your phone company its is just between you and the phone company that it is listed as private. There are Data bases that list your personal Social Security Number (Not as Secret as you think it is). Your best defense against this kind of agency is to answer the phone call. Answer there questions honestly. If the call is not for you then at that point request no more calls. The people that work there are normal people just trying you earn a living as well. If you just answer them honestly then what reason would they have to make more calls to "annoy" you.
PCR is owned and operated by Sallie Mae Corp.
If for any reason you have Sallie Mae, EdFund, United Student Aid Fund etc. on your Credit Report and is listed in Collections. Call Sallie Mae and check its status. To double check the status of you student loans call the Loan Locator Number (877) 328-1565 to see where it is currently being held.
As for being asked for personal information. Most of which is who ever called you reading you last 4 digits, All you have to do is agree or disagree. They then may ask you to verify you Date of Birth by month and year. Document everything you are told by them All the information Everything.
PCR phone call. Just want to comment that a few folks messaged that "we" owe a debt and to be responsible and pay it. I am very fortunate to have no overdue bills, no credit card balances, no mortage, no car payment. And i do not have, and never did have a student loan.
So, please do not assume folks are dodging debt. Somehow people get on a "list" and i have many on these agencies that call my number constantly asking for other people. And they continue to do so.....
Go to www.pioneer-credit.com or better buisness bureau to check on company. Not this blog where all these people who dont pay there bills write about how they hate collection agencys. Pay your bills and we would not have this problem and our taxes would be a whole lot lower.
I have a do not call # - What's with this!!!!
This number calls me at least 2-3x's/week. I've asked them to put me on their DNC list and I'm also registered on the national DNC list but they just keep calling. I no longer answer the phone. This # is from a telemarketer selling the local newspaper.
The number 585-237-7099 called for Elija Hodges. Keep getting calls from a lot of people. My guess is that the people that are calling are collectors.
Trying to sell me the local paper (Arbutus Times). Thats a small baltimore newspaper, why are they calleng from Nevada?
He wanted to deliver free News Paper for 4 weeks and wanted to know if I lived in house or appartment. When I told him, we already receive paper, he immediatly hung up without saying anything. I tried calling back; either it rings and rings, or I get busy signal.
They've called me twice. The first time it was a Guy he just said "Hello?" and didn't respond after that, the second time the guy called, he said "Hi this is George, I'm an Atheist" i told him to hold on till i went somewhere were i could talk to him, and he didn't respond after that.
To make matters worse, this company dinged my credit report by making a hard inquiry.
am on the DNC list and got a call from these idiots tonight
Call repeatedly and say nothing
Also-- I have never heard of anyone getting their paycheck garinsheed or garnished or whatever--
But, they will take it out of your tax return. I filled out papers for a medical exception and the bank my loan was at went bankrupt. I didn't hear another word from anyone and all my numbers for my loan mo longer worked. By the time I heard from anyone they had doubled my loan and started harassing me. A LOT. They never ever touched my wages, but they did take my income tax returns to pay for it. fortunately it didn't take long to get it paid off that way. Probably quicker than it would have me making payments.
I don't know who "a little bird' is -but I am guessing they work for a credit collector or are a skip tracer for one of these type of companies.
When you tell a debt collector to stop calling you and you write to them and tell them to stop mailing you-- they have to stop. Check the Attorney General's office in your state
If anyone asks you for ANY information over the telephone, you DO NOT -under ANY circumstances- have to answer any of their questions. Tell them not to call you ever again and hang up.
You also should never answer questions for anyone over the phone about someone else unless you know for a fact who you are talking to and why. Managers of apartment buildings and at work are not allowed (this is all by law)to give your information out to anyone without your permission or a signed letter/document.
I have been harassed over and over and over by collection/debt collection agencies so much over four! other people's bills! that I don't think I will EVER stop being angry over it.
Most of the problems are created by skip tracers or collection agents acting like skip tracers. They don't check the facts or even care if they are wrong.
And don't anyone dare tell me I am wrong. I call and tell them that they have the wrong number and they still keep calling or they resell the debt and I get the calling started all over again! Or they call me a liar!
The Times Herald Record of Orange County, NY wants to sell subscriptions.
THIS IS FROM PIONEER CREDIT IF YOU ARE GETTING A CALL FROM THEM ANSWER THE PHONE YOU PROBALLY OWE FOR A STUDENT LOAN OR HAVE A BILL TO BE PAID. STOP BEING AFRAID IF YOU VERIFY ITS NOT YOU THEN THEY WILL STOP CALLING BUT IF IT IS YOU THEY WILL HLP YOU GET THIS TAKEN CARE OF BEFORE YOU GET GARNISHED.
they say nothing and hang up!! Its been going on for months we reported it to our local phone company!!
NEXT TIME these animals call - answer the phone, find out what paper they are selling. Then write/email the editor of THAT newspaper and let them know what is going on; how this pigs treat you, how they call all the time and that may END THE CALLS - like it did for me! Good LUCK....
just called again, I waited and was pressing buttons, some woman from the kansas city star called. I know we owe them a lil bill, maybe this is their way to harass and disguise themselves to get the money
calls every day 7 days/wk. just called at 1025am. Silence on the other end, hangs up after 8 secs
i hate scumbags like you who dont pay their bills
this is a federal debt you idiot
whether you get the calls to stop, the government will get their money
they will take your taxes or garnish your wages, and thats not the company thats the irs.
so you choose pay off the loans you took out or get the money you earn taken.
ps i dont like ur attitude
Pioneer Credit Recovery (student loans). If you continue to receive unwanted calls from them, send a "certified" letter to their address (on their website)which clearly states that "pursuant to section 805(c) of the Fair Debt Collection Protection Act (FDCPA), you have been notified in writing via USPS certified mail that you may no longer attempt to make contact via telephone #______, or any other telephone #. If telephone contact is attempted again, I will take immediate legal action to see that PCR is penalized to the full extent allowed by fedeal law." Do not acknowledge any debt. If the calls persist beyond the date of official receipt of the letter, they can and will be heavily fined should you pursue it. Be sure to document any such calls. Good luck, I hate these scumbag, bully, predator types.
i had a call at 12:51 this afternoon from this number (702-553-o512) they waited until answering machine finished the message and then they hung up without leaving one of their own. I called the number back and at first was busy then I tried once more and it rang without an answer until verizon came on and said there were difficulties. the caller id comes up showing the name as cross fm. I too am on do not call list.
called late in the evening. daughter answered, caller hard to understand and asked for our home address
Kansas City Star
they call and hang up all the time
The Bergen Record Newspapr, thats whois behind all of the hangup, and click calls we get here in Jersey! Good thing we have caller Id or my wife or me would think the other one is cheating withall of the hangups we get here. I will file a complant against them right away
Calls from Cross Fm at least twice a day. no message left. We are on the DNC list.
I NOW HATE THE BERGEN RECORD AND THE HERALD NEWS OF NEW JERSEY - THEY USE CROSS FIRE MARKETING AKA CROSS FM AKA C F M CALLS ON OUR CALLER ID TO HARASS US NIGHT AND DAY TO SUBSCRIBE TO THEIR CRAP.
Fm mewspaper telelmarkets never stop callin us! Even on the holiday. Report these people - I will.
the number called today labor day at 3:53pm. no message. i called it back the number was busy.
Cross FM aka CFM aka Cross Fire Marketing of Nevada is the culprit here. The nags call all the time, from sun up until late at night - no one is one the line. I don't have call i.d., so I have to use *69, and I found out who these pigs are...selling newspaper subscriptions around the country, here in NJ its the Herald News and the Bergen Record. I am on the do not call list, why do they keep bothering us???
NON-STOP PHONE CALLS TO SUBSCRIBE TO THEIR PAPER!
Lousy Newspaper and phone call telemarketers called Crossfire Newspaper Telemarketing from Nevada - call EVERY G-DAMN day!
I live in PA and this number showed up on my caller id, so I did a search for area codes and cross fm Nevada, and came across this site. Glad I didn't answer it. Thanks.
it does not make sense.. it is stupid .. what a waste of time
These people unmercifully call my home up to five times a day - 7 days a week...to hawk a newspaper. They are using a random number generator and don't know who or where they are calling or if you already subscribe to the paper! I have tried asking nicely, screaming and cursing, and nothing works - they call and there is no one there, they call and hang up, and now their fake number is a local number here in NJ - that is no good (spoofed and against the law) rather than a Nevada number. The newspaper "OUTS" everyone here - they should be outed for using this crappy telemarketer!!!
Cross FM called twice today, once around 9am and then again at 3pm. I answered after two rings both times and each time there was no answer. Then the line went dead.
These people keep calling me. Everyday... all times of the day from 8am until 10pm. I don't know who they are but this is incredibly annoying and harrasing...
rings 3 times and they hang up.2 days this week and they have called several times in the past and still have not yet talked to anybody.
CALL HAS COME IN WITH NO ONE THERE 6 TO 8 TIMES IN LAST 10 DAYS. A CHECK OF THE RECORDS OF THIS NUMBER SHOW-SEE THIS POST10.22.06 - Ran lookup with a couple of sources; Only 5 businesses using prefix of 553 in that area code. No reverse listings 10 numbers before or after 702.55.0512.

i have been getting this call and evrytime i pick up no one answer and they hang up..sometimes they even call every 15 min or or every day or even every hour.
called 2032hrs central.
I Rick Roll'd 'em lolz next they will feel wrath of choclate rain.
Received this call on August 21st, and they hung up. My caller ID say Cross FM
I do not answer callers I do not recognize. However, when they get our answering machine they just hang up.
You can stop some of these computer calls by recording the THREE TONES (line out of order telephone company tones)at the beginning of your message. The TeleZapper is useless as it only plays back one tone. You can play the three tones back through speakers near your answering machine and then quickly leave your outgoing message. Go here: www.scn.org The tones tell the computer that the line is no longer in service. It tricks most telemarketer predictive dialer programs into deleting your number from their master list.
They say it's my local paper. They continue to call even after telling them never to call again - multiple time. I also complained that they call and no one is on the line - I was rudely told it was a computer dialing and they only have a certain number of available operations so I need to hang on the line and wait for someone to pick up.
This is student loan collections
they call several times and don't say anything at least twice a day
I have received several calls over the past month from Cross FM. No messages left. It's getting annoying
I have received multiple calls per day from both 702-553-0512 and 866-428-4687 for over a week. There is never anyone on the line. It is very annoying! I am on the DNC registry and filed complaints against both numbers.
Everyday I get a call from this number. Since I have caller ID I don't pick up but it's a pain in the ass to receive these daily calls! Does anyone know who they are?
I went to the PCR website and found it blatently obvious that all of the articles about how "good" PCR is, and the "good work" they are doing, were written by someone from Sallie Mae. Sounds bogus to me about how much of a good and friendly company they are especially if they are working for Sallie Mae. Know your rights about Fair Debt Collection Practices
They call me once a week. never anyone on the line, hangs up on me in 6 seconds, and when I call back, the line is busy because they are calling you!
I don't answer from any area code that I don't recognize. If it's a friend, they'll leave a msg. Of course, these asses didn't leave a msg.
I get calls from this company all the time, have for 3 years every day at 8 am sharp. Lately, I've been bored and just play around with them. When its a female, I talk dirty. Usually they would just hang up, but this one lady actually got hot on this type of talk. At first, I figured she was playing around with me, but no, she actually was nutting in her panties, I could tell. Its actually been great phone sex for me lately, better than cyber!
They call me at least 3x a day?!?!?!?!
These people have called my cell and my roommate's cell. I wonder if they call everybody associated with the address that they have.
It's ridiculous. They call us numerous times a day.
Caller ID said it's Cross FM. No one said anything.
Also uses 866-428-4687.
The predictive dialer software now enables telemarketers to manipulate the Caller ID information to show whatever they want. The dialer also calls multiple lines at once and then listens to see if it's an answering machine(then hangs up) or live voice. If there are no telemarketers available then you hear silence and the dialer hangs up. Good info site is www.scn.org
Every day twice a day and nobody's there.
Sorry to inform the PCR apologists out there (and I have no doubt they're plants), but this company asks for personal information, including SS# and DOB, while refusing to fully identify themselves. Further, the people who call do not have any information (or refuse to give it) regarding the exact amount of principal due, interst due, or how much of the obligation has been paid.
That is against the law, in addition to being silly. Should you really make an arangement to pay a debt to an organization without knowing exactly what you owe?
The reason they are reluctant to tell you what you owe is that they make their money from the float on the payment arrangements. It's like buying a car based on the monthly payments you'd like to make. I personly would rather that the collection agency not get one dime. We are all obligated to pay our loans back. We are not obligated to enrich third party vendors in the process.
My advice is, if you have an obligation, contact the creditor directly to satisfy them. No tears will be shed if the Collection Agency Business sails into the sunset. They have a long and and storied tradition of flirting with boundries of the law.
And if Sallie Mae is doing business with collection agencies, perhaps it's time Sallie Mae's charter is reviewed.
I just moved into my new place and my number is unlisted. I have received calls daily from this number 702-553-0512, as well as, other numerous calls from other numbers that say Out of Area or Welcome Dept. The calls start at 8:05 AM and do not end until 9:00 PM. Fortunately, my phone has a voice id that says the name and number. I never answer them, but I have 90 year old parents that need to be able to call me and this is just an awful thing to do to people. I have had 12 calls in two days. It is making me crazy!
We receive various calls daily from CROSS FM (702) 553-0512... They never answer but make an annoying 'noise' and hang up.
These people are disgusting. I get at least 4 calls a day from them and I'm on the National Do Not Call list. Please everyone, file a complaint at www.donotcall.gov so they get investigated. But make sure you are on the Do Not Call list first.
called me tonight & didn't leave a message. Have a new ph# & am on the DNC list. called back & it was a busy signal.
Called and hangs up
Called twice today. It appears to be a newspaper sales company. I believe that if you have declined service to your local newspaper lately, and stated that you were on the do not call registery, they will continue to call and hang up. I am forwarding a copy of this page to the CA State Attorney Generals Office
called at least twice a day. Well not leave messasge and hang up after I answered. Would like them to stop calling. It's getting annoying.
i get a call from this # a few times a week. I never answer it nor have they left a messafe
Contact your State Attorney General's office for Consumer Protection.
I am on the DNC list, but I have received numerous calls from this number. I received a call after 9:00pm on 07/16/07, ansd numerous calls today. I am becoming extremely irritated. Who can I report these annoying calls to?
called several times a day- finally got curious and answered. CROSS FM is, according to the guy who called, a marketing company in Las Vegas that represents over 200 newspapers. He wanted to give me a 3 month promo for the KC Star.
I hope PCR reviews this site from time to time because I want them to know they should stop calling my cell number (XXX-714-2920). I have no outstanding debts, I know it is them, and I will NEVER answer their calls!!! They are wasting their time and money calling me.
Nobody on the line they just hang up. Call show up 2-3 times a week.
I recieve calls a couple times a day just about everyday of the week for the last two weeks now from early morning to late pm. tried calling back and it was busy. they never leave a message either.
If PCR is calling and your not who they are looking for.. best bet is the numb you have has either been owned or used at one time or another by the person they are looking for. If they wont tell you why they are calling .. it's because due to the provacy and FDCPA laws agencies can not disclose any info to anyone other than who they are trying to contact.
If you owe money then that's probably why they are calling. If you don't and have the wrong numb just ask them to stop calling. ... sometimes the numb is listed in more than one database so it may take a week or so for them to fully remove the numb.
PCR is not a scam company they help people. f some people you get are rude... it's because they deal with nasty people all day. They don't know you are not any different.
Just read above note from Dusty...I should've read that first. I did recently cancel my newspaper subscription. This makes sense.
Also, often times those telemarketers have computers that connect you to them (it's not the employee calling) which causes a lag in the call...meaning that for the first 5 seconds sometimes they employee can't hear you. That can seem very suspicious...but usually nothing wrong
I got this call at 18:29 EST on my cell phone. As far as I know, calling cell phones for telemarketing is not legal (comes out of your minutes) unless they have existing business with you...I could be wrong.
I was at work and did not answer the phone...no voicemail.
I found out that this is a marketing company that sells newspapers.. (here in Minneapolis its the pioneer press) I went to the pioneer press's website and wrote the editor telling him about all the calls that I am getting and how annoying it is, and the calls stopped...
5 SECONDS LONG, SOMEONE GRUNTING IN BACKGROUND, AND HANGS UP. NO MESSAGE OR VOICE.
Receive call today on my cell phone at 6:43pm EST. I tried to answer but they hung up. Now that I see who they are, I will put them in my do not answer profile on my caller ID.
well apparently being on the NCL does not phase them nor does the time limitations states have for callers. They called me at 11:45 on a Sunday night then again at 7:28 on Monday morning. Answered both times but noone there. If they are trying to sell local newspapers they need to do their homework, I live in a small rural community that papers are out 2 times a week.
They called and hung up.
We receive 2-4 calls from this caller every day for weeks now. I've never answered, & they've never left any msg. I recently re-applied for the DNC list since you have to renew after a certain no. of years. This has been exasperating.
I have two entirely different phone numbers. Receiving calls from this number on both these phones once or twice a week.
Calls me several times a day/night and says nothing. Believe it is the same caller from last week who offered a free newspaper which I did not want. Am on the do not call list.
They have been calling us a few times a day. I say we fight back. Take your number off caller ID and call them back over and over again. Call their other businesses.
Crossfire also owns this:
Trinity Mortgage Group
504 Tower Dr Ste B
Moore, OK 73160-6708
Fight crossfire with fire. Add them to every e-mail and marketing ad you can find. Have marketers call marketers. Heh!
Called multiple times the last several days, My number is listed w/ donotcall.gov
Receive 2 or 3 calls every day from this number (Cross FM on caller ID)for past 2 months. They are a telemarketing company pushing a subscription to our local newspaper.
They called me 25 times in the last 5 days. What can I do to stop them???
add me to the list of people being annoyed by Cross FM. I let my answer machine pick up and no message left. They have called about 10 times in last week or so.
5:42PM EST, call, no one on other side.
Called # back and it rang and turned to circuits busy signal.
This company has called me a couple times and called again at 7am this morning! I didn't get up in time to take the call, but did a *69 to look up the number and found this site. These folk keep calling me about someone else associated with an art guild I run. They're not calling for ME, but trying to weasel contact info out of me for this person. I Don't give it out, I just tell them I'll pass the message on that they're trying to get a hold of her and that should be the end of it. But still they persist!
Several calls over past few days. Does not leave voice mail.
They call at all hours and hang up on you when you answer. Then when you call back you get a busy! Most annoying.
I've gotten more than a dozen calls from this number, CROSS FM on caller id, over the lst week. I always let the answering machine pick up, and there is never a message.
They called me this past weekend and solicited a Sunday Newspaper subscription which I accepted then a "verifier" came to the phone and asked if I wanted to pay by credit card and I immediately said no and they said okay and are supposedly sending me a Sunday Sun Sentinel newspaper subscription.
They call several times a day and I never pick up...you think that they'd eventually give up, no, they keep calling..I tried the firstname.lastname@example.org and hope that works....
Calls every day usually with two calls back to back. I haven't picked up yet. Trying to find out more
They started calling about 2 months ago. After 1 week, I browsed and found this site and realized they were telemarketers.
I decided to file a complaint with donotcall.gov EVERY single time they called. After about 2 weeks and nearly a dozen complaints filed, the calls stopped. I have not received another call again in over a month.
Maybe that works. Try filing a complaint with donotcall.gov EVERY single instance. That should get their attention.
I am having the same problems as everyone else. Has anyone been able to find a way to make this stop?
I live in FL- they called numerous times- would never respond when I answered.
Get calls about 3 times a day, when I answer there is no one on the other line.
call no message
We are on the DNC list but have received calls from this number 3 times in the last 2 days- says CROSS FM on the caller ID- looked it up- in Nevada- they called at 9:30am my time today- it must be like 6:30am there- even solicitors wouldn't call THAT early- can this be stopped?
This company ask for someone not associated with me. I told them to stop calling even calling them back to tell them. for the last 6 months I have received apox 100 calls. I just filed a complaint with the FTC
answered called. No sound so hungup. On DNC list.
First couple times they called I missed it since I was at work When they finally caught me they said they were from the Panatgraph (local paper) I told them I was moving and no longer wanted it and we both hung up. Now a month later it shows up on my phone again!! How annoying!
I got the Call from this Number twice on the same daya..I didnt pick the call since its from the Unknown Number..My Incoming call is charged.. how about others... if that is also charged...Then its the trick from the Mobile Company.
I got 3 calls from this phone at different times of the day for the last five days.
No one says anything and they just hang up after a while...
this phone number calls my house every day sometimes 2-3 times per day and when i answer nobody ever says anything how do you stop this
They've pulled the same crap here in CA too. I say it's time to start putting pressure on the phone companies. (Verizon, SBC, Quest, etc.) No where in our land line contracts can I find clause stating we as consumers are subject to harassing, annoying, and inconsiderate calls by signing up and paying for their service. I'm canceling my landline. Most everyone knows to get ahold of people by cell or otherwise nowadays, why pay to deal with this garbage?? Not me, and I'm suggesting to everyone I know, including online blogs ... enuf is enuf with these bozo's!! Ciao!
I've gotten two phone calls from this number, both without leaving messages. Thank you everyone for leaving all of these posts. I think it's safe to say that this is a bogus scam and that you should not give any of your information to them.
If you get a call from this number, the most likely explanation is that you're in default on your student loans. I know - I got those calls, and for that reason. The person I spoke to was very nice, and a HUGE help in setting up a repayment plan. They usually don't leave messages, so your best bet is to call them back and get things straightened out.
Even after you're back in repayment, expect more calls from them. They make "courtesy calls" on occasion to let you know the status of your account. After months of dreading their calls, I've come to appreciate them because I know they're trying to let me know if a payment went through, etc.
Pioneer is not a scam company. They are contracted by the U.S. government as a student loan collection agency. Look it up! It's right on the gov't student loan site. If you're in default and Pioneer gets your case, be grateful, because there are several other companies the gov't uses and they may not be as good.
They're most likely a bunch of religious hypocrites who try to accuse others of wrongdoing.
In Texas... cross fm has called at least 10 times in the past 4 days. Same thing... no one on the line then it disconnects. VERY BIZARE!! I'd really like to know what was up with this.
Now they are calling asking for my 8 year old daughter. I have contacted the national do not call registry and the local police. If they are a reputable company as someone said, why are they asking for my 8 year old daughter?!?!?!?!
called but left no message. First call ever gotten from this number.
receive calls from them regularily but dont generally answer.. they never leave a message. answered once when i was in the hospital and had all my calls forwarded to my room.. they were asking me questions they had no right to and when i said no.. they were rude and unperfesional...so i hung up. they then called back and i stated i was in the hospital and had been here for the past month and to please leave me alone and hung up again. they then called again still harrasing me stating i owed them money and needed to pay today. I told them i was in the hospital and i dont know who you are looking for but it was not me and to stop calling and hung up... 2 hours later they called back. I had the nurse start screening my calls after that. This place is a bunch of bs... and does not do there job professionaly.
My experiences are similar to other's on this site. I have NO STUDENT LOANS, and NO OVERDUE BILLS. I am now going into round 3 with this company. This all started about 2 years ago. I have dealt with them twice and told them they have the wrong person. The calls stop, then after months start up again. I've had it with this company and am now fighting back. I urge everyone reading this to fight Pioneer Credit Recovery and report them to any government and private agency that will listen.
This number is on my "don't answer" list.
they call twice a day once about 9am and the other about 7pm they do not stop. Never said anything so i hung up.
This guy is calling me as I am typing this message. I have had 3 calls today. It just seems strange.
I work at a hospital, and this number has called every phone in my department. There was silence the first few first few times I answered. Then finally a guy named John said he was calling from The News Journal, a local newspaper. I told him he was calling a place of buisness. He apoligized and hung up.
I got this call today from a guy named Asheesh, talking about some defaulted student loan, and gave me this number to call him back: 866 439 1358. I'm really scared, I know for a fact I don't owe anything and haven't even asked for a student loan, ever.
Caller ID was Cross FM, and like poster Kendra below, caller was soliciting subscriptions to my local paper in NJ. I said No and hung up. Four days later they called again. And again. And again.
Have been getting calls from this number for 1 year now and it is past annoying. Most of the times it is dead air. I hope it stops and they get busted for spamm calling
They have called all weekend. When we pick up the phone, they hang up. Very weird. Are we being charged for the phone call. We live in NJ, this call is from Vegas.
They have been calling for the past week here in NJ as well. "If" I answer, they do not. I tried calling back only to get a busy signal. Amazing that people have nothing better to do with their time.
left unintelligible 10 second V.Message the caller id says "CROSS FM" ON MAY 25, 2007
I just started getting calls this week. No message has been left and I have not answered the phone. Now I just hang up on them.
This is a scam . They called for my son. Name of company is supposidly pcr . Do not give them any info such as ss# or dob's !!They are trying to make it out as if you student loan is in default when its not. Several students at my sons school have gotten these calls too ! Dont give them any info and tell them not to call back !
I have received numorous calls from this number and they are burning up my mobile minutes. I wonder if I could take them to conciliation court locally????
says they want to sell papers. warned them not to call again - they said they would call back tomorrow. these poeple call all the time. these people are a-holes.
called three times today! I answered the first two and no one on the other end. I ignore now!
called twice so far no message
interesting info about "PCR".. click link: search.buffalo.bbb.org
"Christina" from 585-492-8199 called my company asking me if I have the contact info of a person in my "online networking" community ( as I have networked with many Real Estate Professionals on a certain web site comunity)
I politly asked if I could call her back since my phone needed to be charged. She said to call her back at: 1.800.243.0162. So, when I called.. I asked for "Christina".. and the lady asked which christina? I replied "I'm not sure as she called me" .. the lady said "oh..well whats your social?" ... I paused... and said... "you must be mistaken... Christina called me looking for someone else"... she said.."Oh, I'm sorry... let me connect you".....long story short... I told Christina I had no helpfull info... She said "well thanks anyway... by the way this call was recorded for quality-assurance"....
....When I got off the phone.. I though.......WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT? So, I googled the number.. and found this blog site. After reading some comments, I called this company right back..asking some of my own questions.. I got no where with that question..but I was sent to the manager .. and guess who it waqs!!?.. "Christina" again... So I told her to never call my company again, what so ever. ______________
Something needs to be done with this company.
See NetTracker's comments on 10-22-2006. I called the corporate office of
Pac-West Telecomm, Inc.
1776 W. March Lane, Suite 250
Stockton, CA 95207
209-926-3300. She knew what was going on and said she would send an email to the company letting them know right away. It is a scam involving foreign companies. They want you to call the # back and then they use your long distance to make a call and charge it to you. That's whay there is no answer, no one talking, and they just hang up. The lady at Pac West confirmed NetTracker's comment about manipulating the caller Id. So, whatever you do, do not call the number back.
I at least get 3-5 calls a week at the bussines that i work, i wish someone can do something about this to make it stop
We get these calls and I was one who called home from a payphone in Nevada City Ca now every call that I get from a payphone is CROSS FM 702 553 0512, no matter where the call is from
I get calls two to three times a day for the last few weeks. When i do answer just dead air. I don't answer now. I am also on the no call list.
I'm gonna scream! They keep calling! I try to call back and it just sits there and doesn't ring. This is ridiculous. I put in a complaint at www.donotcall.gov I hope everyone does. This is illegal.
My pohone number ois only 3 weeks old and I recived calls 3-4 times a day!
I have gotten five calls from this number in the past week. No one is there if I answer and if I call back no one picks up.
Please file a complaint at
If enough people file complaints then maybe we can get something done about this number.
Receive call most days at 8am, second call 5-10 minutes later, no message with another call late in afternoon and sometimes at night around 8pm. I have turned in a complaint to the NO CALL list site but keep getting these calls. VERY irritating.
Call your local TV investigative reporter on this number. If someone can track them down from several investigations, they might stop. These calls are driving me nuts!
I get these calls at least 4 times a day and nobody is on the line. So I called it back a bunch of different times and it answers, but again, there is nobody on the line. ANNOYING!
Called numerous times over the past week. Did not answer. I am in Minnesota and on the DNC list. Very irritating.
They are a collection agency. They collect on irs treasury sallie mae sears credit card and federally defaulted student loans...
Have no idea per this number on caller ID caling too many times without messsages. Googled about this mystery number. Glad Google had "WHO CALLED US WEB PAGE" info. No debt with them so I will make a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission per your suggestions/comments listed. Thanks for solving this irritating pest.
They called with nothing to say the first time, then no message second time when I let machine pick up.
Called today first time no message.
FILE A COMPLAINT WITH THE DO NOT CALL LIST.
I have gotten many calls,caller id says cross fm, due to the fact that I don't know the name or number I didn't answer. Who are these people, and why are they calling all the way to N.Y ?
Called multiple times, they were laughing when I answered the phone and then hung up. Who are these people???
found their website. they are apparently based out of california.
If you email them, I suggest you use an email address you don't care about. Hopefully, we can find some corporate numbers and I will take time out of my day to call them repeatedly.
The phone rings, I pick up and nothing. After 20 seconds it hangs up. I reported this number with a sleugh of others to the National Do Not Call Registry.
They called 4 times in one day, and hung up on the answering machine.
I TOO HAVE RECEIVED MANY CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER AND TWO OTHER NUMBERS. ONE IS 585-492-8199, AND 347-689-1050. THEY HAVE ALL BEEN IDENTIFIED AS PCR--PIONEER CREDIT RECOVERY, AND THERE IS AN INFORMATION BLOG ON GOOGLE ABOUT HOW THIS COMPANY IS RIPPING OFF AMERICANS THROUGH THE US DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION.

Calling twice a day - silence on the other end
Red'c call this am...no voice messgae
Asked for someone I did not recognize. Makes me wonder if someone is using my identity.
Talked to Hilda with the Post Tribune, N/W Indiana, said they would get in touch with a "Dave Dixon" that is with Crossfire Marketing (owner) she, Hilda, said?
Post Tribune contact info:

re: Dave Dixon, Crossfire Marketing Group.
This crap has to be stopped, maybe this will help?
>John said: You are an idiot. If you are on the DNC, you won't be called. If you just moved somewhwere else because you didn't make rent, than you are not on the list and F you.
Actually these yahoo's use a demon dialer and it doesn't matter whether you're on the DNC list or not. F yourself, btw.
Received 4 calls from this number and whoever is on the line just hangs up without saying anything.
I keep getting calls, as soon as I answer they hang up. Weird!
They call 3 times a day. Dead air. I try calling it back and it just rings and rings.
Rec'd a call from this number. No msg.
FRAUD ALERT! Calls almost on daily basis. Says calling on behalf of Kansas City Star. Kansas City Star said this is a scam. I made incident report to National Fraud Info Center at 1-800-876-7060.
I'm on the No Call List and this number has been calling me repeatedly.
These people have been calling me 4 and 5 times a day for 2 weeks now, sometimes as late as 9 pm on a Sunday. They never leave a message and phone just rings when I call back.
Received numerous calls from this number over the past 2 weeks. When I answer there is no one there except for one time that I heard the beginning of a recorded message for Sun Sentinal newspaper before the call cut off. My number is on the Federal Do Not Call Registry. Each time they call I file a complaint at www.donotcall.gov. I encourage everyone on the Registry to also file a complaint. Hopefully someone at the FCC will go after this person.
keeps calling without message. calls are about once a week.
they called me today at 9:22am...who the hell are they and how can we block them? Cross FM?
These people are real bastards.
Pioneer Credit Recovery, Inc. (PCR) called looking for my next door neighbor. Said they got my number from an Internet search. I told him he was full of shit; my telephone number is unlisted and NOT in Google either. I think they got my number from SallieMae files (two daughters in college now, with loans) and saw my address was next door to my neighbor.
This number has called me Three times now. 2 of the times I've missed the call and then they called me tonight again while I was talking with a friend. I haven't a clue who this number belongs to.
two calls, said something like 'is he good'- same day
they called three times yestereday and once already this morning. They won't leave a message and I won't answer numbers I don't know.
We have received at least three calls a day from this number since moving and obtaining a new phone number a week ago. We are on the Do Not Call list; they keep calling. No one speaks when we answer. Caller ID does read as above CROSS FM and the 702 area code number. It's gotten to the point when I am going to start screaming obscenities about their mothers if they don't stop.
called 4/28/07 I answered but they didnt say a word
Caller was soliciting subscriptions to the Daily Pantagraph located in Bloomington, IL. Have had multiple calls from this # over the past year.
The msg they leave is by law the message they have to leave. so you tell me, how legal they are, do you think they like giving that message all the time? so how legal it is... very annoyingly legal, deal with it call it back
This company is ruthless they leave mess on mach that if your not so and so dont listen to mess ...the mess on your own phone.. then they continue to tell anyone listening that they are trying to collect a debt from so and so...how legal is this?????
This company is legit and is owned by sallie mae, they ask to verify the last four digits not the whole thing and if you dont they ask for your DOB, they are defaulted student loans that you need to pay on or u get ur taxes taken by the irs, or ur wages get garnished, not cool, they are actually trying to help you, get into a federally backed program cld the rehab. program, so answer the phone pay your bills and shut up, because they are a good company trying to help you losers who dont pay for the education years after the fact you went.
They call me all the time... everytime i answer they dont answer. I have called back to hear the busy signal...whoever they are they NEED to stop calling me! and man there phone bill must be expensive!
The call came again within one minute of my last post.
I answered but didn't say anything and they hung up.
Was on the phone when the call came in, it didn't beep through so I didn't know until I saw the missed call. I called it back within the hour and got a message " the wireless customer is not available at this time, try again later"
I have received numerous calls at various times over the past week. They never leave a message! I have a Writing-Ministry, so today, I answered, being "CROSS" F.M., as I have worked with radio stations before - only silence. So I googled it, and found your site - I thank you!
Send an email to:
To get off thier calling list.
agreed to pay pcr for student loan collections; they have received two payments and still continue to call and harrass me for more information...grrr if they receive their payments and cash them haven't they then contractually agreed that i owe them no more personal info?
recieved a call at 8:25 pm. no message . found this page after i googled it and i have filed a complaint with donotcall. will continue to file complaints if i recieve more calls.
The Following email was sent to email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
I have been receiving telemarketing calls from this number 702 553 0512. This number displays as "cross fm" on my caller ID, my home number is 410 679 ****. The calls from this company have been numerous over the past few weeks. The company is trying to sell "The Aegis"(www.theaegis.com) newspaper in Bel Air, MD. I have asked them not to call repeatedly over the last few weeks. I have learned that this company has been reported on a web site for abusive telemarketing calls whocalled.us If the continuous calling from this company and the parties who our associated with them does not stop immediately, I will take this matter up with the Maryland Attorney General Office. Please contact me for further information.
These idiots called and my 8 year old daughter answered, they asked "are your parents home?" then hung up. I did some research and found this sight. I also dialed *57 which reports the number as a harrassing phone call I also used a selective block on the number so they shouldn't be able to call back. I also intend to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. These clowns need to be stopped.
These calls often are late in the evening and often wake me early in the morning.. how can I make it stop? :)
They called my house looking for someone with my last name but no relation. WTF is that about?
It's interesting that "Bill" insists that a call from PCR means you owe an outstanding debt. This isn't true. I pay all my bills on time. I pay all my bills on time because I don't want to hear from collection agencies. Why, then, did they call my number? I haven't the slightest clue, and the last thing I want to do is talk to a collection agency when all my bills are dilligently paid on time. I suggest people who are in the same position as me contact the telephone company to lodge a complaint, along with the FCC and any other agencies listed on this board.
i tried calling back and it just rings and rings......it is 3:24pm
These people are out there. I told them that they had the wrong person. They had the wrong SS# and birth date for me. However, they kept calling and even called my work place several times a day.
My work doesn't allow personal phone calls, so after two weeks of these guys calling. I got fired.
Can we talk lawsuit here? I have a lawyer looking into the situation at this time.
IF SOMEONE FROM THIS NUMBER CALLED YOU - YOU OWE A DEBT!! Answer the phone and own up to your delinquency - Not a scam - an award winning collection agency
they call me saying that i have students loans and try to get info. they call a numerous amounts of times a day. this is clearly bs.
So if you want to know the names behind the company that's been harassing you, they are:
They are all employed by PCR in western new york state.
Here's what you do. Pioneer Credit Recovery is located in upstate New York. To lodge a complaint with the Better Business Bureau, simply to to this address:
Just called my personal cell phone #. I said hello, they hung up. I never had any student loans and don't know anyone who did.
I get at least 2 calls a day from this number. When i call it back I get static and an intermittant fast busy signal
Received call on 04/07/07 at 8:30 PM. No voice mail .
called this morning, no one spoke when i answered. called them back, no answer. don't we have some right to privacy with an ability to block numbers?
Well maybe if you dead-beats would pay your bills and not default on things, then you wouldn't be getting all these calls.
i am in Illinois and am getting calls from this number and they leave no message. fortunately for a small fee I can have them blocked from calling me..haven't yet, but will if the calls continue
516-394-4369 - Have called at least 10 times in the past two weeks. Always just silence.
Called looking for my neighbor "Diane"
call was sent to voice mail,caller hung up
I have gotten several calls a day for a couple of weeks from this number. I was ignoring it when I was home, but I finally answered to tell them to stop calling me and there was no one there. I tried calling the number on the caller ID and the line was continuously busy.
I ALSO FORGOT TO MENTION. THAT COMPANIES YOU HAVE GIVEN YOUR PHONE NUMBER TO HAVE A TENDENCY OF SELLING YOUR NUMBER TO OTHER COMPANIES SO THEY CAN TELEMARKET YOU. SO BE CAREFUL ON WHAT COMPANIES YOU GIVE YOUR PHONE NUMBERS TOO. ESPECIALLY ONLINE WHEN YOU FILL OUT THINGS. NEVER GIVE THEM YOUR NUMBER, UNLESS IT IS A COMPANY YOU KNOW AND TRUST. BUT JUST FILLING OUT THINGS ONLINE IS A PAIN. EVEN YOUR ADDRESS THEY CAN PUT YOU ON A MAILING LIST TO SEND YOU JUNK MAIL... YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WHO YOU TELL YOUR INFORMATION TO.
THE DO NOT CALL LIST WAS INTENDED FOR THE ANOMOUS, UNKOWN AND PRIVATE CALLS. NOW THESE TELEMARKETING COMPANIES ARE MAKING THERE NUMBERS AND NAMES AVAILABLE TO US SO THEY CAN CALL. IT IS POINTLESS TO EVEN PUT YOUR NUMBER ON THAT LIST. THESE TELEMARKETING COMPANIES ARE JUST WORKING AROUND THAT LIST. THEY ARE NEVER GOING TO STOP. BUT I DON'T APRECIATE THE HANG UPS, NO RESPONSE AND THE SUNDAY PHONE CALLS. IN INDIANA YOU ARE NOT EVEN ALOUD TO TELEMARKET ( IKNOW CAUSE I ONCE TELEMARKETED BEFORE) AND TELL ME WHY CAN I RECIEVE THEM ON SUNDAYS? OH TOO JUST TO HELP PEOPLE OUT. SAY ME, I AM A TELEMARKETER. I DON'T HAVE A PHONE WHERE I DIAL YOUR NUMBER. IT IS A COMPUTER THAT DOES IT FOR ME. BUT HERE IS WHERE IT GETS CRAZY. MY COMPUTER STARTS TO DIAL OUT SAY 10 PHONE NUMBERS. ALL AT THE SAME TIME. BUT I CAN ONLY TALK TO SO MANY PEOPLE SO FAST. MY COMPUTER WILL KEEP CALLING YOUR HOUSE UNTIL I CAN GET TO YOUR CALL. I KNOW IT SOUNDS CRAZY BUT IT IS TRUE. I HAVE WORKED FOR 3 DIFFERENT COMPANIES AND THATS HOW ALL OF THEM WORK. HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED YOU WILL GET 2-3 CALLS AND THEN THE LAST ONE YOU PIC UP SOMEONE IS FINALLY THERE. IT IS BECAUSE THE COMPUTER DIALS OUT BEFORE I CAN EVEN GET TO YOUR CALL. SO IT'S LIKE YOU HAVE OT WAIT FOR ME TO GET TO YOU... I HOPE THIS HELPS.
telemarkers for Product Design and Dev. Magazine
THIS IS REALLY BECOMING ANNOYING. THEY HAVE BEEN CALLING ME FOR A FEW DAYS NOW AND UP TO 3 TIMES A DAY. EVERYTIME I ANSWER IT NO ONE IS THERE. I EVEN CALL BACK AND IT ONLY RINGS LIKE CRAZY. THEY NEVER LEAVE A MESSAGE EITHER. I AM GOING TO BLOCK THIS NUMBER. I WOULD RECOMMEND THE SAME FOR EVERYONE ELSE.
i was getting calls everyday like you guys.i sat down started calling the number back over and over i finally got this lady to pick-up the phone they are a company that sells newspapers across the country ive asked her to take my phone number off the call list. and by the way i did tell her about the 2 web sites i saw that is about nothing other then how her company bothers people,i dont think it will help but ther ya go.
called and asked for "latisha" I told them they had the wrong number. The caller then asked if I knew "adam ????" I don't remember the last name.
Called me twice on a brand new phone number that i use only for a dedicated fax. you'd think once my fax machine picked up they'd stop, but they haven't... if it's harmless teenagers selling papers, why would they be hanging up on people who do answer?
Called 5 times over the weekend Who are they?
Repeated calls from them. They say HEllo into the machine, and continue to call even though I haven't picked up. They called last night, and at 10:20 this morning (a SUNDAY)!
they have been calling daily for the past 2 weeks. I don't answer any number that I don't know.
Yes they called me and I missed it. I called back and it rang about 20 times before I gave up.
they called my house, my work, and then left a message on my cell. I called them back and they wanted my bank account or credit card info, by the end of business today. When I told them they didn't have it with me, they wanted a family member to get the info. When I told them nobody had access, they hung up on me!
wish i had the time to sit and call and bug people, i just hope someone is doing the same thing to them, they are a pain in the nect, someone needs to stop these calls (shows cross fm on caller id)
We've getting these phonecalls since our visit in Nevada; there we refused to buy a TIMESHARE type vacation home. Could it be some sort of a 'revenge'?
They call twice a day, No answer but I can hear them hanging it up.
Rec'd a "missed call" on my personal cell phone from 585-237-7099, but no voice mail msg. I googled it and found this site. I didn't call back as I don't have any business with this company.
They call me, too. My caller ID also says Cross FM. I don't answer it, but they continue to call and call and leave no message. Most recent call was 7:35pm on a Friday.
this is the nj rag..star ledger
3 or more calls a day noone answers when I call back except once guy claimed to a an attoney.
They have been calling once or twice a day for about a week. It's always just slient for about 15 to 20 seconds and then a hang up. No caller ID, just the number. If you call it back, it's just a busy signal. ANNOYING.
They called 3 times today and the last time they called, I answered and they hung up. I called back and the phone kept ringing and ringing until a fast busy came on. The caller ID says 'Cross FM'. I'm on the DNC list.
I am on the Do Not Call Registry and have been getting this call at least 10 times per week for the past month. They called and hung up 3 times just today. I just filed a complaint at firstname.lastname@example.org
Solicitation call for local newspaper- Kansas City Star
Just got a call from this outfit but let it go to answer machine, they left no message - found this site by googling the number.
CAlled a few times, never answered the phone
I found the telephone number is registered to pac-west here is there email address if you want to file complaints - email@example.com
Somebody actually said "is anybody home?" on the machine, they have called many times, I have an unlisted number, but this is the first voice I've heard.
They called once and I tried several times to call back but never got an answer
Got a phone call tonight. The caller ID said "CROSS FM" but when we answered there was nobody ther. So I called back and it never even rang. After minutes of nothing, I got a fast busy. Is there anything that can be done to isolate and punish this perv or perp?
6:49 pm March 9 phone rings and caller ID says Cross FM number 702-553-0512. Spoke but did not understand and hung up.
called Friday night at 700, phone rang 3 times...no one there when I picked up.
Just received a call @ 10:00am from 585-237-7099 this credit company is NOT on my credit report nor have I received any info for this company. They just called my cell, caller id stated New York, no message was left. DONT CALL MY PHONE!
Same as others. Picked up phone, silence. Called Paetec's annoyance number and they just give you a recording effectively saying tough luck and register with the DNC list.
Guess I better join the list! They have been calling me for the last week, I never pick up because I am afraid it's a radio station. Yikes. I'm in Wisconsin. Seems that they are annoying the whole country!
I answered the phone and they would not respond. I returned call and they would not answer. Therefore..they can dial but do not speak!!
Been getting calls about every day. Different times but always no one there. I recently subscribed to Control Engineering magazine (which is a Reed Business publication) and wonder if that's the connection. Sent them an email asking to be removed from the list.
Don't know what these people want. I guess they are looking for someone else and don't listen to the name in the outgoing message.
I have been receiving these calls non stop for the last few months, multiple times a day. Sometimes they left messages, other times they did not.
When I finally did pick up the phone, they refused to tell me who they were calling on behalf of and asked me to give my soc sec number. I refused to give as such. (Mind you, I had just gotten this phone number only a couple of days before they started calling.)
They asked me if my soc was such and such number, I said no. They asked what the last four were, I told them. I also told them that I was fed up with them calling my house multiple times a day without leaving any messages and that they needed to stop immediately as I was not the person that they were trying to reach and that it was harrasment. The person then said "we're trying to locate this person, is it possible that you have been a victim of identity theft?" at which point I said "Yes, it has been reported to the authorities and the credit burueas now please stop calling" and I hung up. I then called my phone company (verizon) and am paying the extra $6/mo for call intercept on my line. However, sometimes they use different numbers that are not programmed into my call intercept blocked numbers list and so the continuing of no messages left, or when they would leave a message it was very generic "we have a very important matter to discuss with you. Please call this toll free number and this extension" and then the message would repeat itself.
I hadn't heard anything from this company for weeks after I had the full conversation as detailed above until this morning.
These idiots don't get that a typical common name may be listed a couple of thousand times here in the US. They hire cheap labor and make thousands of calls to the wrong people. I just got one. If I get anymore, I'll just file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, not the FCC the FTC. You can file on line.
this PCR company called me too. they call from all kinds of #s, another one is 888-216-0168. they are horrible and won't stop. you have to write them a letter to them and tell them not to call you. send it confirmation delivery, it costs 75 cents to do that plus a stamp. they cannot continue to call you when you tell them to stop. that is harassment. here is the address:
in fact send post cards and tell them to stop calling you, write them like 100 post cards from each person who they keep bothering. 26 Edward Street, Arcade NY 14009
Called twice, didn't leave a message.
New house, new phone... just signed up for the Sac Bee Newspaper, maybe a coincidence.
Thanks for reminding me to put my new number on the donotcall.gov list.
Tonight was the first time they called - 7:30 p.m.
CID said "Cross FM". They said nothing and hung up.
They keep calling, don't leave a voice mail
Called twice...each time I answered hello twice and no one responded.
The National Do Not Call Registry is itself scammed. Telemarketers sign up just to get their phone lists. Nobody goes to prison for running telemarketing scams, which are disguised identity theft scams, which is why they do it. You have no legal recourse with these criminals. Don't answer, and don't call back.
This damn number keeps calling my cell phone. Please how can i put a stop to it.
IT takes up my minutes
Stop calling me
Got a call once again from this number and again no answer. Tried calling back and got VoiceMail. They call about once a week from this number, but no one speaks.
They call my cell phone number and take up my minutes!
called everyday and then i answered to find out what this place wanted and they said they were from the record which is my local newspaper and wanted to give me a promotion. Well i took the promo and i didnt have to give him my name or address, he already knew all of that. What do these people want with your info and how did they have my personal information? They even tried to get me to pay with my credit card number and thankgully i said just to bill be. Im concerned
4 calls yesterday 02/10/07, and many hangups during the week, the last @8:14pm, they said they where the Sunsentinel Newspaper in Fl.
Called in February. No message left.
have been calling 1x per day for last 2 months
CONSTANT CALLS EVERY FEW HOURS FROM 10 AM - 10 PM THEY LEAVE NO MESSAGE HAS BEEN CALLLING FOR OVER A WEEK i WILL GO NOW AND LIST ON DONOTCALL.GOV
I also received several calls (3 today while at work, 1 after work). The 3 at work, no-one there, the 1 at home, finally someone there, with a big sales pitch (I knew I should have never signed up with them in the first place). I complained about the calls, and no-one there, plus i have already requested to be put into their "Do not call list" several times, she explained that the computer dials out, and if the "sales person" does not hear the beep signifying the call is active, the computer/person hangs up. Weird that Sun Sentinel (In Florida) is be handled by a paper company in San Jose, CA.
Feb 06th: They called my cell 3x today and tonight. No one spoke, just silence. Calls seem to repeat about every 2 hours. Autodialer.
It's incredibly annoying they never leave messeges stating who they are, and why they are calling. It's flooding my caller Id and I would like it to stop!
The number just came across, with the name CROSS FM...wasn't sure who it was, so I answered. There wasn't an answer, don't know if anyone was there or not.
Called once and hang up without saying anything.
Tried to sell me a special on local paper delivery
CROSS FM callED at 4:30PM on January 31, 2007 and didn't say a word..Hmm?:/
Just an FYI -
If you have defaulted student loans your wages can be garnished and your taxes can be offset by the IRS. It is a FEDERALLY defaulted debt.
If you have defaulted student loans your best bet is to speak with PCR and try to get into a voluntary arrangement. The reason they have your information is because they are contracted to.
And other than the initial letter, PCR is not required to send you any "bills". They are not a billing company and do not have to act as such.
Called and didn't say a word.
i answered and they hung up. it was on my cell phone at approximately 11 AM. when i returned the call the "mailbox was full"
This is a company that collects past due student loans.
they keep calling me regarding my student loans, however refuse to give me anything in writing that would inform me about who they are and who they are authorized by to call me.
My calls are coming from 800-459-1779. Got their number from dialing *69. They've called 3-4x's a day for about the last 2-3weeks(January 07). All they say is hello, before the answering machine actually picks up and then they hang up. 32746
Has called 2 times so far. Listing is cross fm
If someone doesn't like you, they just turn your phone # into these weasles for harrassment.
They started calling today and have called 5 times so far leaving only one message on the machine with the last call. It is about debt collection though I don't know who I owe money to.
It is Crossfire Marketing (thus the Cross FM on Caller ID). They have a website: www.crossfire1.com
If you go there and click on "newspaper" you will see that the Crossfire Newspaper Group is located in Las Vegas. If they are calling you when you really are on the Do Not Call list, you can file a complaint here: www.donotcall.gov
Remember that your Do Not Call list registration expires after 5 years.
Called four times in a row to work number on 24 Jan 07 at approx 3:30pm EST. Nothing when I picked up..All calls had just the number, but they just called while I'm typing this and it said DEHAEMER (sp?) MI.
Constantly calling...line is quite, then a hangup.
Assume it is Gore promoting his docufiction.
3 calls, same day 1/22/07. No message on ans machine
calls daily. didn't recognize number so I didn't pick up, no voicemail was left.
1) PCR - Pioneer Credit Recovery is a Debt Management Operation owned by Sallie Mae Corp. They have several clients such as EdFund, the California Department of Education, which services several student loans. They also handle other contracts. Pioneer Credit Recovery also has several contracts that are not related to student loans.
2) A call from a debt collector is not considered a solicitation, so it does not apply to the Do Not Call registry.
3) If a representative from this company is calling asking to "verify" your social security number then have them tell you the last 4 digits, and that is all. If the last four doesn't match and if "they" give you month and year of birth that is different from yours, then you are not who they are looking for. Just politely say 'no, that is not me' and 'please do not call me anymore'.
4) If all else fails just tell the representative "Do Not Call" and it is against PCR policy to call that number again in a debt collection attempt.
5) Your best bet is to just answer the phone and find if it is even you they are looking for. Depending on the situation, you may want to call the Department of Education to verify the loans are in their office. If that is the case just ask for the phone numbers and for the loan locater numbers. These numbers are considered tracking tools within the lenders, financiers, and collection agencies.
I believe this company uses student loan records as a means of marketing their refinance offers. I actually returned one of the first phone calls I ever got (these butt wipes even use your work information recorded on the student loan docs), spoke briefly with someone who told me he could get me a lower interest rate via consolidation. I told him I wasn't interested. I'm still getting LOTS of calls, and I owe them nothing. Student loan information has been compromised...
I've received multiple calls from them over the last few weeks. Who ever called the last 2 times was apparently unaware of what voicemail is because my voicemail picked up and he was talking to his friend in the background and some of it contained profanity. I try to call the number back and it says that their mailbox is full which does not surprise me. I am annoyed, thank goodness I have free incoming phone calls.
did not answer, only rang 4 times and no one there
Called me yet again - now the fourth time at my place of employment. Leaves no message. I've asked the guy who manages the PBX to block the number.
I'm in Indiana,and received a no- response call on my cell phone at 8 p.m.on 1-18-07.
Didn't take call. It was on my voicemail.
This number has been calling for several weeks. Calls a few times daily, mainly in the morning. No voice if answered, then a hang up after 3-5 seconds.
called my office telephone twice so far this morning. no voice, no response, hung up eventually. caller ID just lists the number.
2:49p call from PCR 585-237-7099.
Leave message on answering machine. She said she need to verify the reference I gave to someone. Ask to call 866-314-1498 ext. 77215, reference# 101811.
They call a little after 8 AM in the morning no matter what day it is. It was a man named Todd acting like he was calling for an interview. Now he's calling but not leaving a message. Feels fishy to me. I definitely won't give out any personal information.
Same as Chuck, silence and hangup
Called at 7:12p.m. Called i.d. said Cross FM. I ran a check and said it was from las vegas. They didnt say anything so i called back and it said that their mailbox was full.
Missed a call from this on number on my cell phone. phone went to message and all that was left was the sound of them hanging up. This happened @ 4:13 pm 1/10/2007.
they called asking for me by first and last name, saying that i was put as a reference for someone that i knew and never talked again to 6 years ago!! they also called my father looking for me???? why can't the law get rid of these scammers!
I'm in Florida and they have called a few times this past week. I call back and the phone rings and then busy. ??????
Well I'm glad I am not the only one. I have not answered b/c I don't know the number, but they leave no message. I tried calling back and it is busy. I've been getting calls in the mornings and on the weekends at night.I will answer the next time just to see.
Lots of background noise (people talking), then hung up. If only one could send a .45 cal. bullet through a phone line :)
Called again at 12:47 but this time they answered. An obvious non-native english speaking voice. I asked about who they were and it is a trade publication run by Reed their website is: www.reedbusiness.com
They appear to use computer based autodialers. When you answer the phone they know to call back later with a live operator.
They called asking about my mom. Said she put me as a reference. She has no idea who they are says they've been calling neighbors. totally illegal!
This is some kind of at Trade Magazine distributer. I am making a mental note of the number and when they call again, I am demanding they take this number off their list.
I notice that this site is capturing our IP address. Nice to complain. Hopefully the website owner is a good guy.
HEMPSTEAD, NY called again and when I answered, dead silence. Might be a messed up autodialer from a marketing company. Or maybe just trolling for "Live" phone lines to later have a marketing person call.
Who is making this call?
I missed the call
Called total of 9 times including 9:35 AM 1/4/07 since mid December. ID inicates its from HEMPSTEAD, NY. Probably Trade Magazine Free Subscription Service. I get a lot of those offers.
These clowns won't even send an itemized statement or letter without you first providing a bank account number for the "Down Payment". Contact the U.S. Department of Education (If the collection attempt is for a student loan) They can get you the info to get out of "Default" and not require you to pay with a bank account number over the phone.
They just started calling. Their pitch was that my brother put me down as a reference. These people should be made to pay for bothering folks and lying about who they are.
Getting multiple calls from this number daily. Only thing displayed on caller ID but phone number 7025530512. Never leaves a message.
Have received constant calls from this number, Cross FM, for the past 2 weeks..they call 6 to 8 times a day. I finally picked up the phone today...stayed quiet and let my Christmas music play into the phone. A man said Hello...Hello...and then hung up. Next time they call I will answer it and end this malarkee! Just fed up!!!
Received the call at 8:00pm.
Asking for my younger brother. I asked who I was talking to. She said her name was Chrisine or the like. I told her he did not live here and asked how she got my number. She said she was working for Pioneer. I said what is that a collection agency and she did not resond. I told her to take my phone number out of their database,that my brother is homeless and I don't know how to reach him.
I recieved a call from this number
I keep getting these calls at my office.
This has to stop. these are just the calling in december. Its the same thing... noting no background noise. nothing
Rep called identifying herself as someone checking job references for a friend of mine. It seemed suspicious when she asked me to provide his phone number to verify that I was a good reference. She would not advise the name of the company, since she did not want to influence my answers about him.
daily calls about 3 times per day from 702-553-0512 and noone says anything when I answer
Yep they call ALL the time. What a pain in the buttsky.
Numerouse calls at night and weekends as well a real pain, what to do?
They have called my cell several times a day for the past week, even Sunday morning. Come on!?! No ID comes up, so I don't answer. They don't leave any message. Going to make sure I'm registered on Do Not Call List, this is ridiculous. Report it if it continues.
Have been called daily by this number suggest others look at this web site
www.fair-debt-collection.com/fair-debt-act.html from the sounds of it there are illegal practices going on
I recommend that all of you that have a problem with this fucking annoying number call and report this to your local police department. That is what I am going to do. AND if the calls DO NOT STOP after that, let us all petition together and file a suit. This is wasting minutes on my cell phone and costing me $ and aggravation. But please PLEASE report this to your local police department. If we all do it, then maybe it will stop.
Two calls today...just background noise.
Repeated calls; they will not leave messages on the answering-machine. Just now they called again, would not say who or what they wanted, just that "This is (Christy?) from Pioneer."
I said, "Oh, I already have a VCR--thanks," then hung up.
I received a message from my apartment manager saying that a man (Chris) had called for me stating it was "extremely urgent" that I return the call, gave the 800-450-3915 ext. 78436 number. I called it and they asked me if I was born on such-and-such a date, I said no. Then asked if XXXX were the last 4 digits of my SSN, I said no. Then asked if Hansen was my maiden name, again I said no. The lady apologized for the inconvenience and said good-bye. This was around noon (pacific time). Then a few minutes ago, I received a call from 585-237-7099 at my work, but did not pick up the line because I did not recognize the number -- there was no message left.
Calls every day, leaves no message. If I pick up, no sound, hangs up.
No message just see this number pop up every few days on caller id
They call at least twice a day, even on Saturday. Also they are calling friends and calling places like my gym. They make it sound like a job offer when they speak to my friends. They also leave an 800 number that requests my social. Very suspicious.
called & hung up on answering machine.
I got a message saying "Hello people" and a bunch of background noise
I keep getting calls from this number, I answer no one on the other end.
I get calls almost everyday from this number, and no one answers. Today, it was Chemical Processing magazine trying to give me a free subscription.
Think I will try the annoyance call center #.
The person calls once a week but on that day calls multiple times. They don't say anything usually but today a child said hello.
Same as the rest
Tracked line to Paetec Communications
Reported the issue here.
Annoyance Call Center
Hopefully it stops.
Calles everyday and hangs up when I answer.
calls constantly, no messages if I don't pick up-if I pick up they don't speak, after a couple of mins they hang up. Calls at all different hours of the day.
you are in vegas call me again .......well
I got the call, swilled a beer, inhaled some air, and farted as loud as I could into the reciever.
No return calls since.
i wish they would stop calling they are EATING up my cell minutes.
Mulitple calls over several weeks. Most recent last night @7:41 pm. Then again @ 9:50 pm. We too our on the do not call registry. This is so annoying. They never leave a message.
Three calls this week from Cross FM - no message left and no one on the line I when picked up.
I am on the Do Not Call registry and they call anyway.
called 2 times in 2 days. ?CID says Cross FM
multiple calls for the last few days.
The calls have just started. One last night (Fri) at 7:35 p.m. Another this morning (Sat) at 9:05 a.m. The calls are coming into my cell phone. Area code 508. Their phone number is appearing on my caller ID. I have not answered either call.
same as Chuck
the phone number 5852377099 has been calling me and said her name is michell but refuse to leave messages.
516-394-4369 - Silence, then some guy that had a lot of trouble with my last name.
Same as chuck...
So *WHO* are the idiots hiding behind 516-394-4369?
didn't recognize number so I didn't pick up, no voicemail was left.
Caller ID says PCR 585-237-7099. They call me at least 3 times a day in re: a supposed student loan. Well, its in my maden name BUT the SS# is different. They do not believe me and have started calling my mother! Now she thinks I dont pay my bills! My actual student loan is current and they said this company is NOT calling on behalf of them.
Silence and then disconnect
Kindly inform me the phone number or email address of :- INFINITE FINANCIAL CARD, Post Box 240, Clear Water, FL 33757.They have only given this toll free number:- 1 866 347 6671, nobody comes online only recording will be going on. With regards, RENUKA CHARLES
Received two calls last night - got fed up and called the number back only to get hung up on followed by constant busy signals. Called again first thing this morning and got a woman on the phone who identified her company as Crossfire Marketing (representing the Bergen Record). I informed her that I was going to file a formal complaint with the BBB - see how these sob's like that one!!!!
Doesn't leave a message. Caller ID reads CROSS FM and the phone number.
caller said he was from "The Record" (newspaper Bergen County, NJ)asking to subscribe.
11/26/06 5:50 pm EST
Cross FM calls up to 3 times daily. Most of the time we don't answer. We answered the first time they called and no one was on the other line. I answered today and they tried to sell me my local paper which we already get.
I am on the Do Not Call Registry. Any advice on how I can get these calls to stop?
Leaves no voicemssg. Call ID says "Cross FM"
Kept calling every day - did not leave a message. I am on the Do Not Call list and will not answer if it is not a familiar number on caller ID.
ancered the call but no one there
Multiple calls, no message left, calls every day. On Fed DNC registry, reported to them as violation.
You are an idiot. If you are on the DNC, you won't be called. If you just moved somewhwere else because you didn't make rent, than you are not on the list and F you
The next day after subscribing to a newspaper, Bay City Times, in Michigan, from a telemarketing firm in Las Vegas, we started receiving calls from this number = caller ID said CROSS FM. Leaves no voice message and is a blank line when we pick up. Tried to call back and no one picks up. Multiple calls. And we are the Do Not Call Registry and they still get through. Very annoying. WE are calling the Bay City Times to cancel and will tell them why. Oh, they also tried to get our credit card number over the phone and we said no. . . so callers beware. Dates called so far: 11/20 9:05 a.m., and 2:42 p.m. and 11/19 6:12 pm.
Received call from Cross FM.
Answered, no response from the person on the other end. Hung up on them.
Just received a call @ 8:05 p.m. 11/17/06. They hung up when I answered. Caller ID says "unknown". They have called a few times before but it was a few months ago.
Press Democrat in Santa Rosa, CA. I spoke with the telmarketer & told her I would sue if I ever heard from her again on my cell phone.
We get 4 or 5 calls a day..starting at 8am ending at 8:30pm. They are trying to collect a debt for a student loan.. We have told them we are not who they are looking for..but they keep calling..told them if they call again..we will report to telco for abuse and harassment. They still call asking for the same person. Should we report them???
Received a call at 2:26pm,
caller ID says 'wireless caller'. Attempted to call back, rang about 10 times...the line went silent...5 second pause...began ringing again, another 5 times or so. No answer.
They're calling because you owe someone $$.
They call every 30 minutes and it's getting really aggravating especially when I'm waiting for an important phone call and they keep calling. They try and sell me something different every time. Along with this number, a 702-835-0078 calls and does the same crap. I Joined the National Do Not Call Registry, and I still get these crap ass calls. Anyway, I hope they don't call again. kbye
Received call from them yesterday at 10:13am trying to get me to buy a subscription to my local newspaper. I WORK for my local newspaper. Contacted my boss about it and he has gotten calls too. Will not answer again.
Someone called, I was not home, no message was left.
They have called on my business phone repeatedly, interrupting important calls. It says CROSS FM.. I am in Midland Michigan. Maybe its Satan!!!
Have recieved 2 calls from this number today while trying to watch the football game. Also showing as Cross FM on my TV (I have phone service through my cable provider so it pops up on my screen)
Called at 8:00AM sharp. I did not answer.
For some reason this agency keeps calling and asking for someone not associated with this (my) phone number. This company has called my phone number about 50 times in the last 2 weeks. This definately is a case of "telephonic harrassment." I have reported this company to the local authorities & & the FTC/FCC.
Also associated with this number: 888-261-7860. They said they were PCR, but wouldn't tell me what the company did. They asked for my name, I hung up, and then they called me from the 585-237-7099 number.
Screamed DONT CALL ME ANYMORE!!! after receiving call # 40 in 30 days . . .
found this site recently as well...
im on the dnc list with this line . .
Who do we file complaints to/with?????
This is garbage - who are these knuckleheads???
How can a group of persons take action against these pinheads???
I get several calls from this number everyday. When I pick up the phone, there is only silence or someone hangs up. I'm on the do not call list. I'm calling my phone company and complaining about this. The call says cross fm and the phone number on my caller id.
Have been calling. No answer. Tried calling back & get 1 ring then busy. We are on do not call but they keep calling
2 calls and hangups from this number on my Vonage fax number, which they should not have.
I got three calls tonight, in a row, over and over after 9pm. I've been getting these calls for a month. I'm sick of it and I would like to know who I can file suit with.
Received my first call on Wednesday PM, and a second call the following morning.
I had been going round and round with the FL Sun Sentinel to get my number removed from thier call list.
Out of curiosity I picked up the second call from Cross to see if they might now be calling on behalf of the Sun. I was right!
Per my request the Sun had stopped calling me. What they did do was move my name to this 3rd party agency.
The lady I spoke with at Cross was nice enough, she asked if I wanted to be put on thier DNC list.
I've since sent another complaint letter to the Sun for thieir continued efforts to solicit renewals from me.
These people continually call - got one tonight - cannot call them back its a one way line. I am on dnc and have filed a complaint.
just came across this and thought maybe someone would like to drop mickey gross a voicemail or e-mail he can be reached at:
Crossfire Marketing Group
this is their corporate hq and they have a sattelite office in Las Vegas that sells newspaper subs.
At least two calls a day for the past two weeks. Four calls yesterday. On the Do Not Call list and reported this number yesterday on their website.
Received a call at 5pm from (585)237-7099 and saw the number linked to Pioneer Credit on this website, thanks. They have been calling me everyday at 6:30am and 5pm and hanging up.
Have been receiving these calls for weeks. The latest was 10/30/06 at 7:51pm ET. Answered this call, like many others from this number, but there is no response, like usual. I'm on DNC list and would love to find out who is calling.
Have been calling me daily for several times. I do not answer their call and they do not stop calling.
10/29/06 REC 3 CALLS TODAY 2HRS. APART. ONE CALL LAUGHING
Calls around 8:oo p.m. but leaves no message. I am on the DNC list so they should be reported. Perhaps 2-3 times per week they call. Intrusive! I will not pick up.
Caller ID said merely "Cross "
10/29/6 @ 7:49
They called several evenings this past week 10/23--10/28 and no one gets on the line. The caller ID shows Cross FM. When I dialed back the first time the would not even ring through, next time it just rang--after 25 rings I hung up.
Called twice today, didn't hear my cell ring which is what they are calling on. My cell is on the Do Not Call list.
Have received calls every half hour or so. When I tried to dial back, I recieved a busy signal
When I answered, there was no one on the line.
Received call @ 430pm, 10/28.
Display read : FM Cross, did not answer.
I am on the do not call list too. Redialed number, and it rang and rang.
Entered the phone number in a google search and came up with this site. Really nice to know this site exists, thanks.
With the elections around the corner, I thought this could have been a political call.
File a complaint against these telemarketers by going to www.donotcall.gov/default.aspx
You need to be previously registered on the Do Not Call list to do so.
Called me around noon today, I am on the Do Not Call list. No message and I didn't answer the phone because I didn't recognize this number or the CROSS FM that appeared on Caller ID.
Website of company. It looks to be a bill collector www.pioneer-credit.com
I got this call on my cell I tracked the number to this company.

10/24/2006 @ 8.10 PM
Have received two calls today from this phone number.
They called on my home phone, I picked up and there was dead silence after three 'hello's. So I ended the call.
This number has called me twice a day for two weeks, only once leaving a message that I return their call to another, toll-free, number on "an important matter". This is obviously some sort of scam, would advise not answering nor returning their calls. I am on the Do Not Call register but they continue to call and hang up. Thank goodness for caller ID.
They keep calling and calling. They never leave a message. They won't respond when I say, "Hello". I am going to have to change my number.

Numerous calls, multiple times daily, for the last 30 days. CID reads "Cross FM". Never leaves msg. Calls never answered. Beware of phreakers, and Prison phone call scams.
Keeps calling and hanging up. I filed a complaint with the do not call registry. Anyone receiving a call, who is already registered with the "National Do Not Call Registry" fro 31 days or more should go to the following site and file a complaint:
newspaper subscription solicitation--called me at work
just received a call from this number on my cell phone. All that came up on the caller id was the phone number. they did not leave a message.
Received occasional calls from them, about 2-3 times a week for about three months. I first answered the line by picking up the receiver and saying nothing. Then, subsequent calls were answered via the speakerphone, and then I played the "Telezapper" sound through my computer speakers. They hung up immediately. Haven't had a call back from them since. I guess my tactic has worked, and they've taken my number off of their computer rotation dialer. Write to me, "quotetime" at g mail if you want more info.
I've received a phone call from this number at least twice a day everyday for the last 2 weeks. They have just started calling me 3 times a day. I haven't ever answered and they never leave a message. Should I answer and just tell them to stop calling?
called at 5:48 EST. Sat 10/14/06
2nd call in 2 weeks, 1st call was from someone asking if I wanted a free 3 month subscription to local paper, told them I already get it and they hung up
Caller ID said Cross FM
7025530512 and left no message
they call me while im at work. my caller id says new york, but no message is left- no message, no callback.
called on my verizon wireless work phone ( i work for verizon and this is not a published number, though it i s on my biz cards) was not able to answer call, did not leave message
They call all time. Soon as you answer they hang up. Call the number back they answer and they hang up.
Ignored the call and let it go to voice mail about 20 times, finally answered it this morning,and they hung up on me.
never answered the calls, 11 in 4 days..
This number has called multiple times today. I figure if it's important, they'll leave a msg. They haven't!
called twice in last 24 hours. I didn't pickup.
I'm on the no call list so I was surprised that I received it twice. Nobody on the other side of the call.
Received call on 10-5 at 7:25 PM. Did not pick up Returned call only to get busy signal after finding this site
Called several times. We are on the do not call list and have an unlisted #. We never fill out ANY papers to give our # to someone either. Seems odd to get the calls. Only # comes up on caller ID no name. We don't answer #'s we don't know. Called back a few times and it was busy each time.
received calls daily for the last 2 weeks. I dont answer because I dont know the number they dont leave voice mail
called at 7:40pm, left no voicemail. I called back and the phone rang in a weird pattern. It paused for about 5 seconds, then rang again a few times and then a guy picked up and said dont worry, this is a call center, sounded nervous and hung up.
This "company" asked me for my social security number and birth date. Yeah, right. Sorry, my mom told me never to give this info on the phone. I think this is some kind of scam. They mentioned something about my student loan, but on a follow up call to my student loan lender they reported my account current and in good standing. Watch out for this one and don't ever verify personal info on the phone. Ask them to mail you something so you have their info in writing. When I asked they refused .... something's awfully phishy here!
leaves message on answering machine. does not identify self or who they are looking for. calls 3-4 times a day.2006-09-19
Rec'd a call from this number on my cell phone. I did not answer and a message was not left.
called twice today. caller id said "cross fm"
This is a company owned phone number, not to be used for persoanl use. Do not continue to call.
hi the phone number 5852377099 has been calling me repetedly. even while im in the middle of school, and i would really like it to stop.
Have called over a dozen times in the past two weeks. Never anyone on the other end. To get even, I call back and let it ring until the phone company hangs up and then I do it again.
Called 5:26 pm Pacific Time; Caller ID showed "Unknown" so did not answer; we are on National NoCall List and have unlisted number.
Got a call from "Cross FM", did not answer and they left no message. We are on the DO NOT CALL registry. Will definitely not be answering any future calls.
We have received calls daily for the past week.they say ther from the s.j. mercury news (laughing people in the background, veryrude idiots' .Caller ID says "Cross FM".I also ran a check on the number,the number was from nevada......TELEMARKETING SCAM!I HOPE THEY GET CAUGHT SOON.
We have received several calls from this number. I finally answered tonight and there was no response on the line.
this number has called. First time I did not answer, no message. Second time I answered but was not able to hear the caller it was faint.
2x per day for last 3 weeks
this number have been calling daily...for at least 2 weeks. calls come every evening about 8 pm. no message left. i have not answered because the id lists it only as cross fm. internet site for cross fm indicates it is from japan...? how can this be stopped??
Calls twice a day (at least) but leaves no message. If I call the number back I only get a busy signal.
Calls about once or twice a day. When I finally picked... nothing but silence.
I am on the DNC list and this number called me tonight @ 7:26 pm central time.
Got calls from this number several time. but they do not answer.. so ignored it.
This number called three times today. I am on the Do Not Call List
Multiple calls over the past few days, morning, noon and night. Never answered, but finally out of curiosity, I dialed the number on a military scrambled secure phone I possess (am top clearance, Commander USN) thinking perhaps it was a scam to get people to call back thus infiltrating personal info through the phone lines (it is possible and does happen, so those without the resources I have, be careful). Some young chicky answered, heard a bunch of late teen types in the background, after I said "who are you" they hung up. My best surmise is they are telemarketing late teens, early twenties who are being given a list of nationwide phone #'s to hawk newspaper subscriptions dependant on the area they get an answer. No harm, no foul...nothing to worry about, join the "do not call" registry if it bugs you that much (I did), but don't sweat it, they aren't harmful.
Calling to sell a local paper. Called TWICE since being told 2 weeks ago to stop calling.
Called at 10:50am on a Friday. Left no voicemssg. Call ID says "Cross FM"
called twice 15 mins apart and caller id only said call from Las Vegas. Did not id caller.
Tried to sell me a special on local paper delivery, I told him I already get it and we both hung up
I never answer calls on my cell phone unless I know who is calling. I have gotten at least 10 calls from this number in the past 3 weeks. Only the number and the info that it is from Las Vegas, NV are displayed.
Called again tonight... at about 7:44 pm... ignored.
call came 7:15 PM Sunday
they called multiple times and when I finally answered they said they were from the local paper, later they stumbled over the name of the San Jose Merc. Thought it was odd coming from a Vegas number, then they called again, havent answered since.
Calls about twice a week. First couple of times I answered, nothing.... I just hit the ignore button now.
Have received calls daily for the past week. Leaves no voicemssg. Call ID says "Cross FM"
We live in Indiana, the number is from Las Vegas. We get a call from this number about twice a week and there is no one on the line each time.
called 4 times no message or voice.
they called me and grunted like a pig n hung up
