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
oooooooooo calls from 2 phone numbers:
An automated message claiming to be "NET" and informing me that my account has been locked. It said press "1" to continue, but I hung up.
Leaves no message. Called 5 times in one day
Repeat illegal robo call. Sent to voice mail. No messages. Spoofed phone number.
Illegal robo call. Repeat caller. Spoofed phone number.
Called twice this morning. I don't answer calls I don't recognize. Strange...
no one says anything.
000-000-0000 is the SAME people as 662-298-4313! It's an illegal robocaller and yet another company pretending to be Google and offering overpriced SEO services. They are calling our business constantly claiming that they are calling from Google and want to get our company verified and guaranteed on the first page in Google searches. That's funny, because I already verified my company directly with Google and Google Maps, and we always come up on the first page due to the nature of our unique business, thus we have no need for their fraudulent overpriced SEO services. The calls are being routed through a VOIP system like Skype or Magic Jack. Either way, the calls are being reported to the FCC.gov website and hopefully the Mississippi based number will be disconnected soon. They will call you with the 000-000-0000 number, then immediately after, usually with a minute or two, from the 662-298-4313 number. Scumbags!
The caller spoke with a very thick foreign accent and I had trouble understanding him. He said he was calling because my computer was sending some kind of message. He could not give me the name of a company that he worked for; he just kept saying he was calling about my computer. This is clearly someone trying to gain access to computers. I played along for a little while and he asked me to click on the start icon. Then he told me to look for something but I couldn't tell what he was saying. I finally hung up on him in frustration but he called back right away. I finally told him he wasn't getting any info out of me.
I do not answer any calls that will not not let me know who they are. If caller ID doesn t tell me they get the answering machine.
Holy shit how many times are these stupid fuckers from india going to call me saying there from fucking bell canada or fucking microsoft computers -__-
I have receiving calls from 10000000000. It mystifies me how a call with this number can ever be made!!!
I have received about 10 calls from this number in the past 3 weeks and I usually ignore it but twice I have picked up and it is obviously a call center in India. The first time I spoke with a woman and She told me I had some suspicious activity on my accounts but had no details so I asked to speak To her supervisor and she hung up. The second time I answered an Indian man was on the line and I asked him to remove me from whatever call list I was on- he said that there is a problem with my personal computer...then when I tried questioning him about his company and his supervisor he started talking sexually to me and I just hung up.
I got a call from these people at least 4 times before I actually picked up. It sounded like a middle aged Indian man, he had a very thick accent. He called to tell me I had won some financial aid money and if he could speak to the owner of the phone. He asked me if I went to school I answered yes and he told me to answer "no" and then he asked me if I had a computer I said no and he insisted I said "yes" and I asked why and told him I was having a hard time hearing him and just hung up all together. First of all he started off the conversation by telling me my number has been randomly chosen for financial aid that I didn't have to pay back to the government. Who are you kidding?
said he was calling from Microsoft wanting to fix my computer.
Hi young women of Montreal
There is a handsome technician in communication (the one who installs your new telephone line at home). He is ~6 foot tall. He is a rapist and a serial killer. His mother is French Canadian and his father is Greek. If you receive calls without any speaking (or with a false accent from India), be careful, you are his next victim. The day, he will ring at your door, DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR. Do not use your phone; you will not have the line because he might disconnect it. Use your cell.
P.S. Those calls have nothing to do with your credit or telemarketing. He stands in communications room, connects his phone and uses the line 000-000-0000 or others lines in Montreal, one in Toronto or one in Florida.

Keep calm and smoke ganja
Got a call from this guy. US Government is gonna give me $7000. He starts verifying my name and address (which he totally got wrong) and I told him 'Really, I just don't believe you. Please don't call me again' and hung up. Scammer for sure.
I got a call from this number saying they were from the government located in Washington, DC. I could barely understand anything he said. He said I could receive $7,000 in grant money which I wouldn't have to pay back...I said I wasn't interested about 5 times, he continued to ask why. He told me that if I didn't accept it the police would come to my house and I would go to jail. I told him to call them and he almost got cursed out...I waited about 20 seconds then hung up. Fucking scammers.
This guy called me and told me that he was calling from the united states government to receive 7,000 dollars from the government and that I wouldn't have to pay it back, and I couldn't hardly understand him. So I had to ask him to repeat himself for quite a few times. The he said I had to follow these instructions. He said I want to **** ***. I don't curse, and I'm a Christian. With that being said, I said "What's wrong with you?" Then he said I told him to repeat what he said too many times. I was really heated, then I began to rebuke him and I hung up.
I receive a call from this number daily, different times of the day. They never speak. They hang up at the end of answering machine message. I want this STOPPED NOW!
There was a dead silence until a beep then an automated Goodbye...
This Indian-sounding guy called and said he was from "the technical maintenance department" and he wanted to talk about my Microsoft computer. I hung up.
I answered my business phone with "investigations" said "investigations twice" then only received a recording that said "good-bye"
Caller said she could fix my computer. I said there's nothing wrong with my computer she said ma'am I can fix your computer I said what computer she said ma'am don't you have a computer and I said I work for law enforcement you want to continue this phone call or is this a scam she said this is not a scam ma'am I can help you with your computer do you have windows I said I do not need any help and I hung up.
For the last two days I have received calls on my cell phone from the above number. The first call is about 10:30 am Central Time. The second daily call is around 5:00 pm.
For the last two days I have been receiving calls from 1(000)000-0000. I'm sure it's some scam but would like to know who owns this phone number.
This idiot called under the pretext that he is with a National Republican Committee. Was very sarcastic, rude,and HATEFUL!!!!
I received a couple of calls from this number, & out of curiosity, answered one. A man with a heavy accent said he was from Microsoft & started a spiel about "something dangerous" in Windows 8. I interrupted him, told him that I use Linux, that he'd have to try his scam on someone who used Windows crap. He said he preferred Linux, too, & hung up.
Live SCAM call from (000) 000-0000 recorded 13 September 2013 (
call received at after 11:30 pm. no one answered when I picked up. and with such a spoofy number, what's a do-not-call registered person to do?
I received a call this morning at 10:28 from 000-000-0000. I answered it, and it was a guy telling me about a sweepstakes. It was clearly a scam, so I interrupted him,said, "I'm not an idiot. Don't call here again.", and slammed down the phone. They called again at 10:34 so I just picked it and swore at them before they could start speaking and slammed down the phone. Now they've called me again at 11:35 then again at 12:36. I suspect this is going to keep happening every hour. What can I do?
No one talks, then the phone call ends
If there is a monitor or admin for this site: there are a couple of inappropriate comments that don't even fit the subject of this forum. I recommend a means be provided to flag such comments in the future.
Actually came up as 0 for operator. Was some one who wanted to help me with my credit cards.
this number called me 3 times. on third call I actually picked up. I heard a man say haha I got a good one. and I heard laughing in background. I said what do you have? and he replied what ever you want, a little of this a little of that. then he laughed and I said I just want to know why you keep calling me. and he hung up.
Someone started talking about a “Security threat or problem”, wanted my credit card #s! I just hung up.
The number just started calling me yesterday. I won't answer it, because I am afraid it's a scam that is trying to get info from phone or it will be a call that I get charged for, like an international call. I have had a recent scam attempt by mail and won't be fooled again. And, reading the comments, I see it is a computer hackers attempt to commit identity theft or infect with a virus.
woke me from a sound sleep! They realized they had woken me up so they hung up. What is with no number showing?
A dude called and said he can fix my komputer.
he is a dude who can fix computer
Asked who are you?
he Hung up
When answerd these calls they say they are from the World Wide Web and my computer is about to crash or be infected with a bad virus but they can fix it if I allow them to take over my computer to repair it. They never say what they will charge and my repair guy says it's a big scam and they charge hundreds of dollars for this. People, beware!!
text message indicating alpsgaacds01.attwireless.net:5 and then a bunch of gibberish
Recieved call from this obvious blocked #.
been wanting to do this for a while
I wispered into the phone "It's done, but therse blood everywhere."
Then hung up.
everyone in my office started laughing.
maybey it would have been beter if I waited for them before hanging up
who called me
The male caller just told me he wants to f*ck me and I said excuse me and he said it again and hung up
indian girl was trying to scam me that i won a goverment grant of 9 thousand dollars because i was a good tax payer. scammersssssssssssssssssssssssssss!!!!!!!
It's a shame they aren't doing surveys. I love those and got a lot of them during the presidential election. Romney's were all recorded so I told them I was a 65 year old white male who was voting for Romney. The democrats had a live person call so I told them the truth. You get what you pay for. Call me to scam me or sell me but don't have the guts to do it in person and to show your real phone number and name and I'll tell you anything or won't answer at all.
It could have been some teacher using the Toronto District School Board robocall system. Especially those female teachers who collect student's phone numbers and emails for illicit purposes. Mary Gowans, former TDSB teacher could narrate what she did.
I was suspicious since the phone # showed 1-000-000-0000 so I didn't answer the phone. The did not leave a message but I blocked them using CallClerk software. This software has been a God send and I am not limited to 30 blocked numbers only like some setups. I have unlimited numbers that I can block. YaHoo
dont ph anymore
got a call man knew my name and said he had a sweepstake to enter I said goodby and hung up
was told about a 1 million dollar grand prize and a reduced price on periodicals. was told that I would pay 33.23 per month for 24 months for 60 months of periodicals. was charged 66.46 and have no way to reach them and cancel.
said some pictures were downloaded on my computer, from Microsoft and that my computer was going to completely crash if I don't remove them? I told him 3 times not to call back here...has called several times but today twice I told him not to call again.
robo call about diabetes care for people on Medicare.
Have had several calls from 000-000-0000. No message is left. This was the first one I answered. No one there.
I answered and a recorded voice said something about Medicare and I hung up.
Called and left a voice mail on my DNC cell. Recorded only the tail end of a message that was garbled -basically saying go to some site and sign up to get $100. The Gov Do Not Call List is a big joke played by our Gov on consumers.
I got the same call too!! 1-000-000-0000! I truly think it is a spam caller and it said somethink like, "Hi. WE aare Windows 8 and we are here and ready to fix your computer. WE will keep you account number safe..." and i was like, 'uhhh, stop calling and i know you are trying to hack my computer' aand it was like, 'ok. sorry we will stop' and it came back four time yesterday on 5/22/13
I picked up the phone and the line was silent until a recording said "goodnight" it was kind of creepy
This number showed up on the caller id and no message was left.
I get the calls from 1-000-000-0000 all the time. I just got one at 11:15 P.M. I have a Panasonic that allows me to block toll-free numbers. AT&T does not. They want the revenue from the 800 numbers. I never
have answered and never do when I don't recognize the number.
Received call several days ago. Was asked to get on computer, etc. Told him I didn't have internet connection (true) end of spiel (operate internet from library, two blocks away)
Caller ID (*69 in our area) brought up the string of 0s - obvious scam.
I answered. A muslum sounding voice told me he was from Microsoft. He told me to get on my computer and start punching all kinds of keys. I told him I was punching whatever he asked. I kept asking him to repeat over and over. After about 10 minutes he asked what the screen showed. I said the strangest thing just happened. The screen shows I am talking to a Muslum Rat Bastard. He hung up.
I did not answer. I love Who Called Us. Thank everyone for taking time to inform us about these criminals.
They called me 3 minutes ago from 347-855-6444 as they do daily.
Caller ID shows 000-000-0000, when we asked who they were they said we are lucky winner of a home improvement contest, the callers have Asian indian accents, so they are definitely a telemarketer. We are on the do not call list and when we ask for their company name phone number and address they hang up. Then keep calling!
I've been getting a call from this number about 4 times today I just want to stop.
Before my dad died he said that he would contact me from the other side.To make a long story short, he died and finally got through. The called ID said 000-000-0000. I tried calling the number back but it didn't exist. I finally accessed the message and It was the voice of my dad. He said Hey Rex your there. Same thing he said every time the answering machine would pickup. I let my wife listen to it with out telling her what I thought. She confirmed that was the voice of my dad. Our fax machine and home phones where going baserk for a while . It came through on my work phone with out a clear meassage and my cell is where I finally got the message. So maybe you should pay closer attention to who is calling from that number. Try calling it and it doesn't work.
I like this site
Do these idiots think I am actually going to answer their calls? Always just 5 rings. They called earlier today from 849-965-5896.
calls 2 - 3 times a day never leaves message
We've received several of these calls lately and they never leave a voicemail.
just says good by i got a call from this number this morning around 11 am and again a 1:59 pm i have gotten calls from them before and just do not answer but it is a pain i know they will call several more times as they have in the past
Called every other day for over a week. Hung on to answering machine saying nothing.
Robo call. International criminal syndicate. Multiple calls, each time a different scam. Telecommunications fraud. Credit card scam. Impersonating law enforcement threatening jail. Computer hacking. Fake Microsoft Warranty Support, do not follow caller instructions. Spoofed phone number 000-000-0000 does not exist. Fake Free Walmart Gift card, amounts too good to be true. All callers ask for credit card to pay fees, then make thousands in excess charges if a person falls victim. Report to Attorney General's Office for your area.
Who ever knew a number like this existed !!!! Glad I was not home and caller ID showed me "Unknown"...
He was from another country and told me the FBI reported about 3 million window users whos computer information was being used. He wanted me to go into my computer to verify my serial number and got angry when I said you must be f___ing kidding me and I hung up.
i got a phone call from 000-000-0000 he sounded middle eastern he wanted to give me 100.00 for something not sure what. i guess i won something. i told him to take my number off the list. ten min later i get another phone call from the same number diffrent guy this time. i told him i used to be in telamakating and that i had already asked for my # to be removed he says oh so you know everything then i said yes he started getting really nasty with me and i told him i wanted to speak to his super. he said i have to know why before i can do that. i told him cause he was being rude and give me his super now . i also asked for his name he wouldnt give it to me. watch out for this stuff our identy is at risk all the time now.
I got called by a man, who sounded Mexican and spoke in a little bit of spanish, who told me my name was Dan, which it isn't, and when I said he got the wrong number he kept refusing and asked if I had a computer because it can be hacked form the internet and he's gong to send windows technicians, I own a Mac, to fix it. I think I was scammers not sure though.
Another spoofed number from a scamster.
I seen to get these and others in blocks, like once every 3-6months. takes a little vigilance, but they stop calling after a couple tries.
Was trying to figure how they get/got my number, other than just random dialing and it occured to me. Ya know all those "apps" people put on their phones ? If you look at the "permissions" you'll notice most of them have access to your contact list and other information on your phone, some even can call or re-direct your calls, or listen in on what you are saying without you knowing it !!! Scary shit !! ALWAYS read the permissions you give these "apps" BEFORE you install them.. you could be paying to get spammed as well as your contacts. Not really worth it to me.
Research before you do somehting that seems so simple and mundane, to good to be true... IT IS.
I got the call last week friday while I was at work! It called me twice. Today I get on facebook and apparently I wasnt the only one to get calls like that. People were getting calls left and right and they get them at the most unreal times! It goes alphabetically and it creeps me out!
Got an automated call on my cell phone from 000-000-0000 said it was Morgan Chase and my MasterCard had been locked for security reasons, press one to unlock.... checked with Chase card is fine. Obviously phishing scam.
I got a call from this 000-000-0000 number too, it said my Mastercard had been locked and to press 1 to unlock it, I don't even own a Mastercard, kinda creepy getting a call from 000-000-0000...
Received call, 7:10 am, said "hello," male voice with heavy accent (islands? Africa?) talked fast, said something about "my delivery didn't go out" and hung up the phone. I won't answer calls that number ever again! Usually don't, but I was just walking up.
picked up on answering machine WYMAX test number...test complete
This 000-000-0000 number has been calling and leaving me ridiculous voicemails. The voicemails goes like this " this is a notice from the JP Morgan Chase Bank, your Master card has been locked for security purpose and to unlock it press 1 now". It's ridiculous because I don't own a credit card at all, would not ever dare to own one in this life time, it's ridiculous to ask of me to reply on a voicemail. So, much be a prank.
SPOOF APP!!! DON'T ANSWER THESE CALLS!!! NOT WORTH GETTING UPSET OVER!!! IF YOU DO PICK UP, HANG UP WITHOUT TALKING TO THEM. AMEN.
got several calls recently from this number, and when I answer it hangs up. called the operator and she says it is not a number, and I asked how can it be calling then. Says it must be how my phone defines a unknown caller and number, told her no it isn't, my phone lists the number or states both are unknown. This is not the only number that calls that is NOT a number according to the operators. Call them back, and get the recording that is is not a working number, must be someone from a space ship eh?
Discovered that this is a telemarketing business with the valid phone number of 561-829-2170. Made it known I had kep a phone log of the past 24 hrs and the amount of calls, brought to their attention it was illegal and that I was on the Ntl. Do Not Call Registry, and that I reported them to the FTC. I advised them to refrain from calling my house and remove me from the list. Rep confirmed my number to do so. She advised that they were a college tuition finance company.
My wife and I get this call a few times a day ALL day, 12:01am is my favorite. Thanks jerks, whoever you are.
voice mail says jp chase morgan mastercard is locked. Press 1 etc...
call at 9:00am. Said JP Morgan Chase Mastercard locked and to Press 1. I'm Verizon.
My husband got this call in the afternoon and I got the same one at around 930pm: jpmorgan chase master card locked press 1. We have a chase visa card and a sears master card, It seems their child is locked? hahaha
I was at a friend's house when her mom got a call from this number saying JP Morgan Chase. She ignored it, two hours later I got the same exact call. Two hours later my friend called to say she got the call too. I was thinking the order makes sense since her mom's last name starts with a B, mine's L and My friend's is W. So it went alphabetically. Also we all have verizon, I don't know if that matters but it is a similarity. It creeped me out. None of us have JP Morgan Chase.
The person calling either asked for my 4 year daughter by name or the parent's of my daughter, again by name, and when I said how can I help you the caller hung up.
Both my husband and I received phone calls on our cell phones from this 0000000000 number today, him in the AM and I in the early evening. Same robot message, that our JP Morgan chase cards had been locked, press 1 to unlock. We have cards but never activated them. Called just in case, the customer service number on the back of our actual cards. As suspected, it is NOT really JP Morgan Chase calling.
I too received this message about a master card at 10:39pm on a Tuesday evening. So annoyed.
automated message saying that JP MOrgan Chase Mastercard credit card was locked for security reasons and to press 1 now to unlock it. I don't even own a mastercard :).
It's noon in WA state and I just received a call on my cell from 0000000000. I let it go to voicemail and just listened to it. Recorded message stating that it was JP Morgan Chase and that my master card had been locked out due to suspicious activity. To unlock press 1. I do not have an account with that bank nor do I have a mastercard.
It's midnight and just received a call on my cell - recorded message stated that it was JP Morgan Chase and my master card had been locked out - to unlock press 1, at which point I hung up. We do not having any business dealings with Chase nor do we have a master card.
I got a call on my cell phone from 000-000-0000... also saying jp Morgan chase bank card has been locked and to press 1. And, we also do not have a jp Morgan chase card. I also hung up.
My husband and I got same msg today from 000-000-0000
Saying jp Morgan chase bank card has been locked and to press 1.
We do not have a jp Morgan chase card.
Received a call at 9:41 p.m a few days ago from 000-000-0000. Since I wasn't at the phone when they called they left a voice message, automated, claiming to be from Master Card stating my card was locked and to unlock it press "1" to talk to someone about security issues "and then it went blank and hung up".
I haven't gotten anymore calls thank goodness, but its upsetting to know people are out there that screwing others over seems to be their mission in life.
said it was JP Morgan credit card checking on fraud at 1AM?!
Call woke me up early this morning, didn't answer it because 000-000-0000 seemed creepy. They left a voicemail which was an automated message saying my Mastercard was locked due to security issues, and I should press 1 to be transferred to the security department.
...Doesn't seem very legitimate to me.
Hey guys im from belgium. And i got calls from 0044 000000000. Is it the same calleras you guys?

2 calls yesterday, 1 today. Persons with heavy foreign accents trying to get customers to switch to Green Life Energy. They are not random calls- they have your name, address, etc. Is this legal?
I don't know what they want but they need to stop calling me
Received several calls from this number - sometimes twice/day. Phone rings once only. No ID other than the phone #. Ugly!!!
These scumbags can kiss my a**

Called me today to tell me they were Windows tech support and I was downloading viruses. He was going to talk me through it all. Could barely speak english.. I told him I would call windows myself..
+0000000 block this number and trace this number please
After several calls over the past few days and me not answering the call, I decided to answer and ask them to stop calling my cell number. The man said I had won a $100 Walmart gift card. I said "no thank you" and asked him to remove my number from his call list. He said, he could not do that and why didn't I want the gift card? I told him, I am sure there is a catch, and then asked again to remove my phone number. He said he could not, we went back and forth a couple of times and he told me I would have to change my phone number. That did it, I told him that he was rude and to remove my number and I hung up. I will have to see if I get a call tomorrow from this 000-000-0000 number, I hope not.
they called twice and left no message, very annoying. I don't know who they are.
Number keeps showing up on my AT&T bill, could it be someone calling my husband trying to hide there real cell number.. Sick of it!!!
I don't know what I want to do after university

Who is calling my cell from blocked number 000-000-0000 blocked
I'm in my first year at university
I never pick up call I do not recognize. These are scammers. I hook up my line to fax machine. I agree that we should not pick up any numbers we do not recognize and get these scammers out of business. Obviously the government does not protect us against these scammers and harrasement. The government lets the phone companies make money buy giving the scammers service, therefore, then scamming us. Date of this call 11/6/2012
Yeah, like I'm going to answer a number on the caller ID like that?? Nah, don't think so. Sod off, wankers!
Why don't we all collaterally report them they are using skype.
I never answer calls I do not recognize. I block them and/or hook up to fax machine. These are just scammers.
Caller: Scammer/Prank call
Call Type: Prank Call
If you try calling the number back it says the number or Code you entered is wrong!
If you're getting these calls such as the one that paris got you're probably living in a Gun State, and are a Liberal Democrat, I get this call today too at the same time, I didn't answer the phone, and they left a message like a Fax was coming through this was my Cellphone number as well!
It's either a Pollster or Some Drunk asshole, making threatening calls
Left no message. I had been told by friends not to answer it because it is a scam.
I never answer calls I do not recognize. I hook up to fax machine and/or block number. This is a prank/scammer call. Do not answer these people
I got a call from 000000 and when I answer it just hangs up and I'm confused as to who it is or why they're calling
Would you like a receipt?
They have been calling at all times during the day and last night they called at 12:45am and woke us up. I never answer calls from numbers I don't recognize.
Suzy, your caller does not maintain this site or this web page. Your caller cannot magically determine which numbers should not be called based on anonymous comments. You will not get compliance with your orders until you deliver them *directly* to your caller.
Making your plea twice as absurd, this all-zero phone number is the all-time lamest spoof which can be and has been used by an infinite number of scammers. Reading but a few of the thousand-and-change comments prior to yours would have told you that.

Please do not call me again, for I do not answer the phone when I do know the number.
i got info that it is time waner but i think it is scam so im going with terri
ask them to stop calling you if they keep calling you say im reporting you if still calling cuss them out
I have received repeated calls from this number. The caller claims he is calling from Windows and I have downloaded a file that will hurt my computer. I told the caller that I was driving but he could leave a number on my answering machine and I will call him back. Of course, he did not... instead he continues to call my number. IF YOU GET THIS CALL... THE CALLER IS TRYING TO GAIN ACCESS TO YOUR COMPUTER... THIS IS A SCAM!
I received a '000-000-0000" telephone call today. I have an unlisted number. I sounded like a black guy’s voice and there was a woman’s voice in the background. These people left a voice message saying that "I'll be over in one hour- keep a look out for me" They knew my home address as they stated they would meet me there in one hour for ' the appointment you made' and "i'll give you a good price, a good price for what we talked about." They left no name , or company name or phone number in the voice message. I had made no such appointment. I was extremely scared because these people had both my unlisted phone number and home address.
As far as I know they did not come to the house..
Anyone else have this bogus call on their unlisted land line number and have a similar message? The call was at 11:57 AM
Received calls from this number. No message left. Comes up 0-000-000-0000 on caller id. Annoying and harassing. Am on Do Not Call registry.
There among us and trying to break through to us. its its who gives a crap
I get calls from 000-000-0000 & its always someone with a indian accent (sorry just the facts). The person claims to be calling from windows and they are getting an error reading our computer is infected. Since when does windows monitor computers (i thought their software took care of this). This is such a scam and do not trust these calls. They ask you to go to your computer and they will help you fix the problem. Most likely help themselves to your info & infect your computer. They call with an unknown number unexpectedly but want your info - get over it!
Working with Bank of America to lessen our mortgage interest rate on our home, not a modification though. They want bank records, check stubs, tax returns, etc. sent to them. Gave them my cell number and they returned my call and it came up as 000-000-0000. What the heck?
what the heck is this pone number mean ?000-000-000
OMG this # has called my cell phone every single HALF HOUR for 3 fricken days now! i dont answer calls i dont know. twice my phone dinged like a message was left, but when i get the message, all it is is beeps, like a 'busy signal'.
unknown name, with 000-000-0000 as the number
Jesus Aitch, Tina .... Look at this mile-long thread. Then look at the number again. Anyone in creation could spoof this number.
the 0000000000 number called me 5 times today. does anyone know who is and what they calling for?
Caller said that she was from microsoft and that my computer was sending error messages back to microsoft with malicious virsus attached to the messages. I found the caller to have broken english, barely could pronounce the words shes was saying. Wanted me to give her my IP address so she could remotely login to my computer. I found this caller to be hilarious---I don't have a computer! And when I told her that, she didn't have an answer, she just ended the call.
Tel No: 000-000-0000 calls me early morning even on weekends and evenings day in and day out their voice sounds like they are from another country I wish they would stop calling me ! I answer the phone and lay it down and walk off .Call blocked it but they still call . I am going to report it to the gov/FTC so tired of the calls had 4 to 5 calls today already and it is only 12:40 pm
This number called at 3:45pm. I asked to be taken off their call list, as we have a person who works midnights in our house and sleeps during the day. The caller said no. I said NO? He said no. Then I said let me talk to your manager. He said no. He said I need to talk to you. So I said "then talk." And he was quiet. Then I said again "Let me speak to you manager." Then he said "No. [long pause] Can't you see I love you." JERK! I hung up. Who are these idiots?
I answer and I get no response. it comes up on my caller ID ten 0's and when I don't answer they continue to call. Finally, I blocked their number, but they still try calling in.

Hung up...left no msg. #
Ms. Porter is describing a variant of the ''Foti message'' used by many collection agencies to tiptoe around the privacy mandate in the FDCPA and similar state laws. The policy is confusing for the industry and a sore spot for consumer lawsuits. I suspect her caller's actual name is Convergent Outsourcing, formerly ER Solutions until the end of 2011.
To a ''not me'' case I always recommend putting the agency on notice, just as you would if you were the target and the debt claim was invalid. Send a ''cease-communication'' notice via USPS Certified with return card. This is the method promoted by the FTC and many consumer watchdogs, and the only way to set a legal landmine, as such a notice is ignored at their risk of a lawsuit from you. You may already be due some payback if you can prove you've endured abusive or misleading treatment in an effort to collect debt. I might suggest that the use of an obviously spoofed phone number may qualify as illegal.
Learn how to exercise your FDCPA rights as an alleged debtor at FTC-dot-gov. See also if your state laws are stronger.
I said hello twice and then it said goodbye. I'm really creeped out by this.
I recently commented on this number and it comes up an automated message. After a week of not hearing anything, they call again. I press one and finally talk to a live person. The company name is Convergence and they are indeed a debt collecting agency. Too bad they are trying to collect a debt for a service I never had and I am disputing it. So for anyone who happens to get a call that starts out "This is Kelly Smith. We are trying to reach ________. If you are ______ press one, etc. etc." then take note that it is a debt collector.
Got this call this morning and have had this call come up a few days now. It's an automated service that says "This is Kelly Smith. It is important we speak to (name). If you are (name) please press 1. If you need to get (name) to the phone please press 2. If (name) is not home and we need to call back please press 3. If this is a wrong number for (name) please press 4." The downside to this autmated calling systems is when you press 1 or 2 they put you on hold for about a minute and then it hangs up on you. I am guessing this is some sort of debt collections service or it could be a mmeans of identifying active numbers for future scams, but that's just a guess. I haven't been able to talk to a real person to find out.
The Federal Trade Commission is tasked with enforcing the Do Not Call law. Each call the criminals make carries a potential fine of $10,000. This agency costs us tens of millions of dollars in taxes. The FTC so far has done NOTHING. I don't know what they do in their cushy offices...computer solitaire and all-afternoon lunches perhaps. The only solution is to get rid of the corrupt government that supports them. On November 6, 2012 teach these petty princelings that there ARE term limits. Please get out and vote, and DON'T REELECT ANYBODY!
Wife just answered call from 0000000000 they said hello then she told them to stop calling. I dont know what it was i heard somebody say the feds tapping into phone lines. lol hope not. i guess wait til phone bill gets here to see if any extra charges on bill. DONT ANSWER...............
This number showed up on the Caller ID, yesterday and today. It looked kind of shady to me so I did not answer it.
Indian freaks with virus scams called.
The called id indicates the caller is: V62817221200008. Have also had calls from 000-000-0000 with V62719192100008, V62619534900008,V62119021700008,V62013122900008, V61912491300008, V61815562400008. Who are these people?
How do I get them to stop calling?
i've had this number and they called me yesterday. it was stupid because nobody even said anything....
get called from 000-000-0000 at least once a day for several weeks now...i ignore it
i just got a call from this number and the other person on the other line was just breathing. i said who is this and i didnt answer. Weird. kinda creeps me out now
I receive this number on my home phone and cell phone. When I don't pick up the house phone they call my cell phone a few seconds later. They can keep calling because I'm not picking up.
Tel No: 000-000-0000
Caller ID: Name Unavailable
Probable SCAM ARTISTS...
hate to tell you guys this but i have the block system on my phone. i renew every 2 yrs as instructed when i first started getting prank calls. this number still gets through so they are not on the usa lines but coming off shore
i too have gotten calls from this number. i would ignore them when showed up on my phone. last night (6/5/2012) i decided to answer. the guy on the other end could barely speak english BUT HE HAD MY NAME! i immediatlly hung up and reported it to my cell provider. they advised me not to pick up on numbers such as this and the 922-72 number as both are off shore and will cost you a pretty penny (up to $1000.00)for one minute. my provider deleted the cost of this call to me since i was not aware.
COMMENTS ON ANOTHER BOTHERSOME PORNO CALLER:
THE NUMBER IS 800-249-8999. IT IS A RECORDED PORNOGRAPHIC CALLER. THEY HAVE CALLED MY HOME SEVERAL TIMES IN THE PAST 3 MONTHS. I HAVE TRIED TO BLOCK THIS WITH A DO NOT CALL OPTION, BUT THAT HAS NOT WORKED.
I keep getting calls from this nothing number. Of course I do not answer it and they do not even wait until the answering machine comes on. It is just a big bother.
Called and left no message.
Number on home caller i.d. 1:50pm est. no message left on vm. Never saw this odd number before, but lately have been getting a lot of recordings from other toll free numbers to stay on the line for customer service rep to reduce interest rate on credit cards. But I didn't have any credit cards! If I answer these type of calls, I don't say a word, just lay the phone down and go about what I am doing. I sometimes can hear them just talking away...then saying, hello? hello? lol
Informative resource! Thanks for providing it. Keep going that way.
I just wanted to say thank you for your time spent writing the postings that even newbies\ unprofessionals can read and understand. Go on sharing your thoughts!
This is a SPOOFED number. ANYONE can disguise their phone number. As many have said before, that's why there's no telling who this is coming from. Whoever is calling YOU behind the 000 number is NOT the same person calling ME. It could be a National Party - though why they'd want to hid their numbers???? - or it could be a hacker or a debt collector or a prankster or a research firm .... And if you're getting multiple calls, it need not be from the same caller/place/firm.
I like Jokester's message below. He pretended to be a detective at a crime scene. I think another fun one would be to say you're homeless, you just found this phone and could they send you some money. :-)
I didn't answer when I saw the number because it was very obvious it was a spoof. But I wanted to post here so we know the number is going through a revival in at least the Atlanta,GA area.
I like Dwight's post even better. Call blocking!
Hi, Neat post. There is a problem with your site in internet explorer, would check this… IE still is the market leader and a large portion of people will miss your magnificent writing due to this problem.
This could be from any illegitimate business or person. It is a fake number for fake businesses. My spouse has been getting these for months now. I believe that using your phone number on your computer forms is where they are getting numbers to call. NEVER use your real phone number on the web unless you are actually making a purchase with a reputable company.
I have answered my spouse's phone and occasionally get someone with a thick foreign accent. My solution is to either sound like a total idiot, baby, or ancient one. They even called back once thinking a child had answered. Telling them not to call has not been at all effective. If you can block numbers, do so on this one.
I got this call earlish this morning (before 8). They said they were contracted out by Microsoft to fix viruses. I asked the name of the company "Winpcsupport". The guy on the phone was a very nice Indian fellow. He showed me where the viruses were and then told me only a microsoft certified technitian can help me. He said they could do it for a lot less, $69.00 vs. $200.00 for a microsoft technition. I was finally wising up..."why is your number 000000000?" He said it's because he's from India. I said "Okay, I need a number to call you back on...one in the US....there must be a company in the US that is connected to you. I need to verify". So he gave me the Winpcsupport number...I called and no one answered. He told me I had over 2,000 viruses and if I reach 2,500 I'll have a crash. He was seriously worrying me!!! I went for a walk...came back and did some googling and I found this page and others. I also tried to find any warnings from Microsoft and found none. Apparently it's a scam. Wow. I almost got taken and hours of my day were wasted worrying, fretting and searching. Wow.
Omg I got it at school. At around 12:20pm. And it sounded so fake. My friend got the same call.... -.- they just wanted the money. /).(\
This is the fourth call from 000-000-000 they call and leave no message when i call back i get a recording that they aren't taliking calls but they sure bug me by calling
this # calls all we hear (at work) is the other end of a fax machiene it calls at least 4 times in one day before it quits it sometimes does this once a month or waits 2 or 3 months between calls
