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:
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? I answered first time cuz i was sleeping n i didnt look what number it was but he hung up on me after that i got 5 calls from this number in 30 min wich i didnt replied and 2 "unkown" calls between them.

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**
Who is calling from a blocked numberlppooooooo.

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
U all are nuts. Probably ur partner is freacking cheating dumb ass,anyone can use a 000/ number to hide identity. Wake up there are bad people in this world. Don't respond to the ignorant foreign fools!!!
You are no help!!!!!
Who the hell keeps calling my/ and husbands cell from this number??? We are sick of it!!!
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.
FCC notes on various ways to combat nuisance calls (at least from legitimate sources)
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.
& he knew my name and my adress and my hometown and he asked if the information wasright and i said no and he asked me what was my adress so i just hanged up. I rember this one time he wouldnt stop calling me so i told him i didnt want the walmart giftcard and he said NO you have to take it and he asked me if i got it and i said no and he said no??? & i never got it:o Cheap marketing? its very scary & one time my dad picked up and he asked me who was it and i said my friend because i didnt want my dad to get worried so now i just disconnect the cable and put it back.

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

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
this number has called me 10 times today and everytime i answer they dont say anthing and hang up. its freaking me out!!
I didn't answer because I was too late. Probably a solicitor.
this caller has a bad accent and is very presistant...i believe he is calling from overseas and has something to do with a computer repair service i used about 3-4 years ago.....they continue to call and attempt to talk me into subscribing to their service again....i have told them i nolonger WANT anything to do with their company and that my number is registered with the national DO NOT CALL list.....evidently it dopesn't do any good.they conrinue to call even after 9 pm our time..the do not call listngs evideently don't work ...at least not with them...according to the numbers listed on my caller I D they call from 0-000-0000.... how can you trace and track down something like that....the phone company ( ATT ) is absolutly worthless and can not help...if it continues i will go to another service provider and change my phone number. this crap is rediculous.
Received call from a foreign accented female. I could not understand her, but I did demand that she not call me back
You bastards don't need to call me anymore. I have put this phoney caller ID number into my Blocked Call list. You will not even get through to my answering machine!
Person started to curse and yell becuase I wouldn't take him off of speaker while I was driving down the road. He continued to use the F-Bomb. Person was very rude, do not answer this number

ONe call made on Feb. 23. We have received 2 more calls today.
I just received a call at 7:40 am from this number, asking for me by name. They told me that the US government had selected me to receive a $7000.00 grant. #1 I don't think the US government anything would be calling me at this hour on a Saturday morning. #2 Do we have this kind of money to be giving out over the phone? #3 Where in the H*** did they get my phone number and name? I told him I was not interested and hung up. This makes me angry.. How many people will fall for this scam today?
Caller claimed to be representing National Bank of Canada, doing market survey. Caller ID said: "Confidentiel1302". She got pissed off when I told her she was a "boiler room" scam operator and that I was reporting her to the bank and to the Phonebusters telephone scam squad (Ontario Provincial Police)
Called both me and my mom's phones..dont say anything, hang up
well its an air duct company that uses many many spoofed numbers
they no, grow up. The "illumanti" (do you mean illuminati?) don't exist. Find something more useful to do with your life.
its the illumanti.....wait till i punch you in that 1 eye you got...lol
He knew my name
Just when you think these "tuttie fruities" can't get any more oppressive, they do. The calls with no phone numbers showing are some of the wickedest tricks they have inflicted upon the public. Fortunately, I have found the instructions for my phone, and I know now which is the correct button to use to delete such calls, which I don't answer anyway thanks to Caller ID, that clutter up my incoming call log.
'tis the season to get harassed by pesky phone calls. I went out this morning to visit a friend who is a shut-in, and when I came home, there were six missed calls on my phone. Every last one of them was "unknown caller" or the likes. Now, the instructions with the phone tell you to pull up the number from the memory, then hold down the OFF key for a few seconds -- and that should wipe out the record on your phone. Nyaaah. I have to open up the phone, completely take out the battery and disconnect the plug-in from the phone, let the whole thing sit for a while, then put the battery, etc., back in. Sometimes this works. I believe that these bogus callers may be putting something into the programming on my phone to make it difficult for me to erase records of their calls from memory.
A pox upon all of you junk phone call people!
This number called my business during the day. When it came up I picked up the preceiver stating "If you don't have a phone #, don't call"! Of course, you have to have a phone # to be able to call/scam people but they don't want you to know what it is because they don't want to get caught & fined. If they really think about the statement I made "they are holding a receiver or have a device in their ear to scam us"! ! ! Duh > > How stupid can some of these people be ?
10000000000 is a telemarketer "spoofing" their real phone number; highly illegal in the US.
SCAM , I RECEIVED SEVERAL CALLS FROM THIS SO CALLED NUMBER. THIS IS PROBABLY A PAYDAY LOAN COMPANY. I INQUIRED ON THE WEB( HUGE MISTAKE). MY PHONE AND EMAIL HAS BEEN CONTACTED SEVERAL TIMES. WHAT A TERRIBLE COMPANY TO ALLOW THIS TYPE OF BUSINESS(BuLL CRAP).
I got a call from a 000-000-0000 and the were very foreign with american names. They haave called me 5times and 4 of the times I answered it. They state I,have won something. I finally asked for a manager they told me they will put me on a no cal l list after explaining to me again why they are calling.. I interrupted him and states again I dont want them to explain anything and to stop calling..... I guess we'll see if it stops!
Doratteno, what are you talking about, are you out of touch with this complaint system? You really need someone to proof read your comments with a dictionary before you hit enter. Now we have stupid harrassment for UGLY boots on "Who Call Us"
Now these idiots are allowed to use an "out of area" ID with a phone number consisting of ten zeros. Where is the responsibility from AT&T and every other phone companys? We pay dearly for this phone service and we should be expecting protection from these harassing phone calls and we should not be expected to be tolerant of this obnoxious harrassment.
I answered my phone and said "I think you may have the wrong number". The lady on the other end said "I didn't say anything yet, so don't be so stupic". I believe this was absolutely uncalled for.
If you are be sure you check the build quality of the substance which is used in the ugg boots. You start with the information of boots and fittings. Subsequently checking out the stitching along with the wool of your boots.
The ugg boots may be worn during both winter season in addition to summer season driving them to an excellent buying deal since you can put on just one air of boots boots for a long time when the quality of the ugg boots is a great one.
The right spot to get ugg boots is often a which focuses Exclusively on these kind of ugg boots and nothing different. If you purchase from a place similar to this you are confirmed the high quality will be outstanding and so on top of that you will be capable to select just the kind and look of your ugg boots as the selection is going to be large.
It became still very difficult to obtain virtually any correct ugg boots sale suppliers lots of years ago and also to purchase the appropriate size you had to count only in getting the boots on the web being transported for your requirements coming from far away. All that seems to have since transformed dramatically simply because these ugg boots became a fashion pattern and can easily be obtained almost anyplace everywhere.
It was a significant matter a few years back with regards to the legitimateness with the ugg boots sale simply because there was plenty of bogus and fake ugg boots on the market from several distributors to generate a revenue out of it.

I'm yet to taste my first victory...
Next commenter is pranked Steven Stone.
ABC is a fag.
Caller ID said the number was 1-000-000-0000, when they left a message it was from CCB a collection company or something.
I didn't answer as they have called in the past. It's a scam call. Very anoying.
I got a phone call from this number left a message telling me to 347-4354-2547 and if i did not call them they are going to call my employer and this the first tiime in about 5 months that they call me again before i did not answer the phone and it stop now it going on again i wish they would leave the heck alone.
Had a call yesterday. The caller wanted me to go on my computer. I asked a lot of questions and then he hung up!
Just had another call from a woman who referenced the call yesterday and said she could answer my questions.
Both calls were obviously from somewhere like India (the first call he actually said he was calling from India), I could hear the delay on the line when I talked and like other reports it sounded quite noisy.
I asked the woman where she was calling from, she said Ottawa. I asked for the address and she changed the subject back to telling me how she could help me if I have a problem with my computer.
I hung up.
Received a call from 000-000-0000. Suspect company tripped themselves up, and when answered the female identified herself as a bill collector from SIMM Assocaites Inc. A bill collector in Newark DE at 800 Pencader Drive. That information was recorded for anyone who wants a copy.The female wanted us to call back on her phony claims. What the President/CEO, of that phony organization got was a fax, and later a Cease & Detest order, with other litigation pending. Don't take their bull. Nail their butts
My call block worked when I put in both 1-000-000-0000 and 000-000-0000. They are still calling every 30 minutes though.
This is a spoofer number. They spoof your caller ID. They are usually from telemarketers who are hiding their real identity. The reason they will often say 'goodbye' and hang up as soon as you answer is because they got what they wanted. A live person answering. Now they will sell that information to lists of telemarketers worldwide: EX: your number, your listed name, and when you answered their call. This lets other telemarketers know when you are at home and can answer the phone. Often, if you are able to call this number back, you will get Bank of America or Bell Telephone in Canada. Also a spoof. They have re-routed their call back number to these corporations so you will file your angry reports with the FCC and falsely blame these corporations as the culprits. Most of these agencies that use this 000-000-0000 number are calling from India or Pakistan.
Goodness knows how many different unscrupulous scammers are using this spoofed number. Sometimes it's the Republicans, sometimes the Democrats, other times it's some other scammer.
who's calling from this #?
I got a call from this number and it said out of area. It was a bunch of gibberish. I called back and it was Time Warner Cable.
They claimed they needed to talk to diabetics in the family, and there was a lot of background conversation. Boiler room
Hi, i got phone calls about 3 times before like once evrey month, the number was 000-000-0000 and its really annoying.All it was is a recorded message of 'Good bye.*Beeb*' and han up.Now it was a girl voice but i have no idea what it came from at all.
Sometimes it comes up as unknown name and number, but i read on some other sites about this and it could be a telemarketer recorded message that cut off, but i dont see how.Some say it was blockbuster calling their house for an overdue movie or game or somthing.I've gotten calls from librarys of sometimes overdue books but it never came as 000-000-0000.
Ive also read its because the caller hides their number so you answer it but know i know so theyve been busted whoever they are.Its quite crazy and odd but i guess we cant be sure of who it was, try to block it or something.I hope i helped you figure this out pepole, its very strange to me still though.
Have a nice day!
As soon as I pick up they say "good bye" and hang up
oddly enough we've had 2 calls about 2 different things from Bank of America. Why would they hide they're nbr when you're expecting a call from them especially considering how many sales calls come in this way?
No one reading this thread can ''please have this stop''. As evidenced by the massive size of this thread, and the huge variety of callers represented, just about anyone could be using a brain-dead cowardly spoof number like ''all zero''. If you want answers it's your job to find them. You will have to answer calls live and try to extract your particular caller's business name and purpose. From there you may determine what laws apply and your options for halting the pesky behavior.
I'M TIRED OF THIS NUMBER CALLING MY HOME AND NEVER LEAVE A MESSENGER PLEASE HAVE THIS STOP
y did some1 call me?!?! im mad.....
put it on my reject list. is this random or are they getting the number somewhere
Calls up to 6 times a day. Never leaves a message.
What a interesting series of number it is. Is it possible.
unknown caller at 000 000 0000
crazed people calling in addition to a phone # 406 478 2356, Reset, Sidney,MT
Really sad when there is an ill person in the home and they have to contend with this.
I would recommend you quit this ''great site/nice comment'' spam you've been dumping here all day and night.
I would recommend you quit this
Tired of these phone calls. I get several a day and they don't leave a message except static. I wish they would stop calling NOW!
I got a call yesterday and today from 0000000000. You can imagine my sruprise when the number showed up on caller ID. I thought it was weird, so I answered it. It was Bank of America trying to collect a debt.
This must be one of their new tricks!
Caller, with heavy accent, said he was a Microsoft certified engineer and they were getting numerous error messages. He could not say who he was calling, and it took about five tries to get him to say the above. When I asked 3 times why he was calling, the connection was mysteriously broken.
They're calling every day - I don't answer.
Left message about lowering my credit card rates. (Obvious scam as I never carry a balance)
Calls fax machine 3X/day. Tired of the bull.
Have gotten a few of these calls. With the latest one, I stayed on the line. Some guy with a VERY heavy foreign accent (that is, could not articulate the King's English nor American English!!), claimed he was calling from an IT center, and offered to service my home computers!! Yeah, right. I told him unless I got the full name, address, and bona fide telephone numbers, I would not talk with him further until I checked them out--like I would do business with such a nefarious SOB. Well, that sure pissed him off--he started screaming at me. Because he had such a thick foreign accent from god knows where, I could not even decypher the rant. But he was ranting. All I did was laugh as I hung up on the bastard. Beware of these foreigners trying to get into your computers or your pants as "collection agents"! That they have been characterized as "assholes" is a horrible indignity to the rectum!
These people have been calling 3 times a day for a month. The captain needs to call somebody else.
Expecting a call, I answered the 000-000-0000 caller. It was a woman with a foreign accent offering me a free chiropractor exam. She gave the name of the "doctor" who would be in my local area but the name didn't matter. I told her that I did not use chiropractors. She offered me the service again. I repeated that I did not use chiropractors. She asked,"Why"? I hung up. A number appeared in the name line above the 000-000-0000 : V5050204410016
CALLED AT 5:16AM
I have been getting it too from 0000000000
I didn't answer because I didn't recognize the number so I let the answering machine take it. It sounded like they were punching in numbers on their phone then some guy came on and said "Hello, Hello" and hung up. It sounded like there was a heavy crowd in the background.
Persistant A##hole caller,alrealy( 4) calls this month from these M/f's
I get so tired of this number calling me and waking me up. I want them to stop calling me NOW!!!!!!!
How in the hell can the phone companies allow these calling companies to make calls from 000-000-0000 numbers??? That should be against the law and is total BS!!!!!
No message left on machine.
Assist the great nation of Japan from the earthquake by doing a tiny donation!
Just FIND EM AND WASTE EM.... They skirt the law!!! NOW WE WILL... HOPE THEY READ THIS.... WE ARE COMING AND HAVE A WASTE EM PARTY>> F the law, it works for NOBODY>>>> So the law is now mine... PROMISE!!!!

At 12:00 Last Night, Someone Called Me By The Number 000-000-000. And I Was So Freaked Out I Made My Boyfriend Call It And He Said It Was Some Girl. That Made Me Feel Better. Lol.
UR ALL GAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let's return to a theme
don't know why of harassment call
The recorded message they left directed me to go to www.cashcomestoyou.com. They are skirting the National Do Not Call Registry by hiding their true phone number and identification.
They call but don't leave a message
Didn't listen to any message. The idiot's called my FAX machine.
I'm getting these calls 3 to 4 times a day.....how do I get them to stop?
By the way, Ms. Rayls, enjoy the new flood of spam you will get now that you've publicized an email address in plain text.
The all-zero number is a lazy man's spoof, the other popular choice being all fives. There are no easy answers since such a number is inherently not unique and is not valid under NANPA.
THERE ARE FOUR 0000 ZERO'S THAT KEEP CALLING MY CELL PHONE I NEVER ANSWER IT YET THAT NUMBER KEEPS COMING ACROSS MY CELL PHONE.AND THEY NEVER LEAVE A MESSAGE?WHO IS IT AND WHY ARE THEY CALLING AND THEN THEY DONT LEAVE A MESSAGE.I DONT ANSWER CALL'S TO NO ONE WHO ISNT ALREADY PROGRAMED IN MY PHONE FAMILY/FRIENDS/WORK/BUSINESS,THAT'S IT.PLEASE IF YOU CAN GIVE ME ANY ANSWER'S I WOULD GREATLY APPERCIATE IT.MARIE RAYLS (email@example.com)
i acted like i was chinese and didnt speak english... they havent called me back babbabaahhhhahahaaa
this 000-000-0000 ID is blockable on comcast phone service people!
if any person calls me again from 000-000-000 again it will be reported to the cops
i got a call from 000-000-0000 and they said that they were going to kill me! i am sooooooooooooo scared plz help!!!!
I get four or five calls from 000-000-0000 everyday on my cell phone. When I find out who is calling I will introduce them to my Smith and Wesson .357.
Wanted me to advertise my business in Yellow Book, or the Yellow Pages, not sure which one, was very hard to understand the person on the other end.
This is how they spoof ya.. or one of many companies out there:
Called for lowing my electronic bill. They said they can be reached at 866-962-3577. Just do not release any information to them.
I am recently receiving calls from this number, but have not answered. Am on the do not call list. Probably another damn debt collector trying to find whoever had this number before I got it just about one year ago. If this continues, I will contact FTC to complain.
i just got the call a few seconds ago twice with in five mins go to
and register your phone there its free and they cant call back i also did this with my house phone a few years ago
they leave no message at all, and use up cell phone minutes, one call was 12 minutes long!
Guys, to make them stop for good, say: hello? (he will say his crap) just keep saying " sorry i cant hear you, who is this" (he will speak" you say" im sorry its a ...bad line
i recieved this call on 10-28-10. i didn`t answer because if they don`t want to show there name they can`t want to talk very bad. I think it was losers trying to get their kicks--will never know and don`t really care
Seen this # before, but this time a Halloween safety message was played but was from local politian Carol Kent.
Hi! This phone number keeps calling my house and I want them to stop, they called yesterday. I need them to stop calling.
Several calls over the last few days. When I answer they hang up. I reported it to my phone company ( Comcast ) and they said it was most likely a telemarketer or someone looking for a " good line". I asked what a good line was and hey explained it as a way that telemarketers search for homes where people answer so that they can target them for additional calls. LOVELY!! Just what I need! More of these bums calling me.
However - tonight I got another call from these dorks snd it was the Democrstic party telling me the election was Nov 2nd (Duhh) & asking me who I was supporting. & if needed a ride to vote?. What need is you fools to quit calling me!!
6am and no one is on the line, called 2 times in 30 seconds
I recieve many calls from this number daily which has been disturbing.what do I do?
and unknown number
Message on phone. No one speaks and caller ID os 000-000-0000. Media com tells me that it is the latest "walk" around DNC list. Usually either a collector or political call according to them.
But how do they do it?
Sorry it is just disturbing to get disturbing calls from someone who really does not want to talk to you and you can't figure out why.
I answered the call to see who the hell has a number with 10 zeroes in it. It was a political survey. When I told him I wasn't interested in participating, he said "But it's only one question!" So I told him to find someone else to answer it and stop calling me.
My phone switched to voicemail, but caller did not leave message. The caller just hung up when my voicemail initiated.
Yeah, like this is a legit number!! PUH-LEEZ!!! Picked up receiver, listened for a few seconds (no one said anything) and immediately sent to unattended VM box. This was the 2nd time they'd called this morning.
modified version of the number.. only four zeros show up on the caller id. A man asked if my girlfriend was home, I heard people talking in the background. I said, "Yeah she's here, but she can't talk.. see.. I just finished beating her to death with a hammer, and I thought you were a concerned neighbor." They hung up on me?! Was it something I said? (oddly I hope they call again)
I said hello several times and there was only silence at the other end so I hung up.
no response to my hello, silence for a few seconds, then line was disconnected
With elections coming soon. I pretty sure it's some political crap

Dear Mr. Abdulahi:
Last week you were at the school with the intention of registering your two daughters. An encounter with two male students, who, as per your description, were “holding hands and kissing” in the hall had resulted in your uncontrolled verbal abuse about how “gays are punished under Shariah“. Furthermore your comment to a female teacher who came to investigate that she is to “lower her gaze” in your presence because you are a male is totally unacceptable and offensive in our culture. Not only have you proved to be an embarrassment to yourself, you also embarrassed your daughters.
It is abundantly clear that you posses an extremist religious and cultural view that is incompatible with the policies of this school and the TDSB. The TDSB attempts to treat all students, regardless of race, religion and sexual orientation equally; clearly your devotion to a religion that has not yet joined the mainstream of a civilized world, I would suggest that an all-Islamic girls school would be more suitable to your daughters.
Pursuant to your conversation with a member of Student Services, I am very pleased to hear that you will be enrolling your daughters at a nearby Islamic school. As an educator I urge you to engage in continued productive dialogue with both your daughters in order that they do not receive an inferior Islamic education that may hinder their future prospects.
about 2 months ago
Received call today. I answered and they hung up after I said hello. I blocked the call. (We're on the Do Not Call List < like that matters)
Call hang up. No message.
I received this call on 10-15-10 at 11:41AM, CALLER ID showed up as NAME NOT FOUND. This is the 3rd call I have received from them, the first call I told them not to call here again that my phone number is UNLISTED and is on the DO NOT CALL LIST!!! This time I didn't answer it!!!
I received this call today 10-14-10 at 2:29PM, CALLER ID showed up as NAME NOT FOUND, this is the 2nd call I have received from them, the first call I told them not to call here again that my phone number is UNLISTED and it is on the DO NOT CALL LIST!! This time I didn't answer it!!
I get such a call now and then. Wierd how they can fake their ID.
Sometimes I pick my nose while pooping, so I don't waste time during annoying collection calls.
Do what I did, scream really loud then hang up. XD
hung up when i picked up the phone.
i have never seen a listing of "name not found".
My umbrella just flew off the deck. Damn wind.
Got a call from 000-000-0000 saying I was eligible for a $7,000.00 government grant. The man saying it, was not from this country.
Received 17 calls from this number in the past week. Answering machine kicks in continueous beeping comes for 5 sec. and them fax sending signal comes on for 9 seconds before the phone stops. It is ticking me off to no end and I want it to stop.
Scroll down below and you will see who is calling. The same company that wants you to buy the "Call Blocker" Note this web site has no 'identity'. No "About Us", no "Contact Us". I suggest everyone scroll down and start harassing the company trying to sell you the phone number blockers.
Make it stop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
0-000-000-0000 calls two or three times a day. So far I haven't got anyone on the phone but if I do I will tell them there is a bomb in their building that will explode in 30 minutes. Hopefully it will inconveiniece them and or cause people to resign but, they won't do anything about it. What can they do, call the authorities and say "we were making illegal and harassing calls and someone made a bomb threat.."? I don't think so, anyway I don't care, I am sick of American businesses being able to do anything they want anytime they wish with essential impunity. Deregulation? Fine, deregulate everybody--people too.
Called work phone 4 times in
I've had numerous calls from this number within the last week and in the past. It always says "Name unavailable" and although the phone shows a message was left, no one says anything.
This 000-000-000 keeps showing up and the caller says they are calling from the State of California and want to ask for info that we cannot give when they are not specific. I asked what the name of the company was and the caller asked if I thought it was a bogus all I said I want a manager and she said I am the manager bitch, what is your problem? I hung up and made a note of the time and called AT&T to see if they can track it. This is unacceptable. I have requested many times to be removed from this caller's list.
This crap and harassment should be illegal. I got 2 calls in the last days.
Stupid people calling from this hidden number will sometimes identify themself as "Senior Health" but when you try to get a name or mention "do not call" list they immediately disconnect. I got one to tell me they were in Greenville SC. Other calls from Senior Health came from Olympia WA and Casper WY. Those callers must be too dumb to hide their caller ID. Pisses me off.
I just received a call from this number from a person called Steven saying he was calling on behalf of Bell Canada. I asked to be removed from their calling list and he kept persisting why.
I said I was on the Do Not Call List and he said so what.
I finally hung up on him.
On 8/12/2010 the phone number 1-000-000-0000, caller ID "Name Not Found" called my house 12 times in the space of 6 hours. I logged in the time on each call. This has been going on for the last several weeks and will not stop. Today I placed a formal complaint with the FCC and I encourage anyone in the same situation to do so. And if this doesn't work, I will call the TV News station.
(4 calls today--9 in the last week) I never answer these calls, and the caller never leaves a message.
I answered before I saw on Caller ID that it was all zeros in the number. A woman said she was Patricia and started immediately talking about some kind of medic alert. I said no thank you and hung up. How can they call using all zeros in a phone number?
What about the DNC List? I don't think it's works because I get tollfree calls all the time. I'm sick of it!
I'm on the Do Not Call and still recieve calls from this number daily. I filed an on-line complaint with the FCC last week. No one else seems to be able to do anything about it. I'll see where this gets me.
I get several of these every day, and they hang up when I answer. If I don't answer, they keep calling anyway. The political robocalls are bad enough!!!
"Name Unavailabl" (sic) called a couple of times in the past week, but no one is ever there. I wait for the line to go dead before hanging up, which usually takes less than a minute.
This appears to be a variant of "unknown number". This 'phone number is listed on the National Do Not Call list.
After days of hangups, I finally got a live person doing a political survey for the 2010 primary gov race in FL. I told her I would answer questions if she would listen first. Told her my views on spoofing and politicians skirting the Do Not Call concept. Rick Scott will not buy my vote and hiring these phone nazis isn't going to help!
I got calls from this number every couple of hours asking for my housemate. They didn't seem to understand the concept of "Out of Town" and wouldn't tell me who they were. I finally wheedled one of the callers into telling me he was calling on behalf of the Republican Party. Fortunately our phone company allows us to block numbers, so I blocked this one. Obviously it's not a real number. It's spoofed. But anybody who blocks or spoofs their number from Caller ID is up to no good and should be blocked.
ANSWERED ON MY HOME PHONE WITHOUT SPEAKING AND A FEW SECONDS LATER HEARD A BUNCH OF NOISE. DID THE SAME WITH MY CELL PHONE AND AFTER A FEW SECONDS A MALE VOICE CAME ON A RECORDED MESSAGE "THANK YOU FOR CALLING A REPRESENTATIVE WILL BE WITH YOU SHORTLY" AS I HAD NOT MADE THE CALL I HUNG UP. MAYBE NEXT TIME I WILL HANG AROUND AND SEE IF A LIVE PERSON COMES ON!!!!
Called to ask for me by name. I said "name isn't here right now; can I take a message?" Instead of leaving name and number, I got a quick "Oh, that's all right, I'll just call back later". Sorry--you want to talk to me, call w/ a legit name and number on the caller ID.
Received a call from number 1-000-000-0000, caller id showed up as out of area. I answered it and told whoever called, as I didn't give them a chance to talk, that my phone number is unlisted and is on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY. Hopefully they will not call here again.
This could be from anyone.... who spoofs it.
I see there are multiple sources.
Yesterday I was sitting at home and someone called me from that number and caller id was "BUMT". who the heck is this? It's very scary because they called me like 5 times yesterday. I never answered though.
As Dave explains it, just human garbage with too much time on their hands - phoning. GET A REAL JOB LOSERS !!!
I have 2 incoming phone lines and been getting daily calls for the past 2 weeks from "Name Unavailable" "1-000-000-0000". They call both lines simultaneously. What I do is answer each line and conference them on to each other. The callers asks for me by name. Today, for the first time, the caller on Line1 thought Line2 was me so he went in to his spiel. It was Heartcheck America trying to schedule a heart screening. Line2 caller, from the same place, just started laughing and couldn't stop ... and they both hung up. Priceless!
Second call related to this number or non-number. Wasn't here when they called yesterday. It was a recorded message from a group promoting financial reform and talked about the financial reform package being considered in the US Congress. They wanted me to call Olympia Snowe to tell her that I support this package and that she should vote for it. The computer even offered to connect me at no charge if I pressed 1. Right! Darn phone keypad is broken. Was thinking of playing Yankee Doodle with touch tones to see what it would do to their computer but couldn't do it. Guess I will have to rely on Olympia to do what's best for the country without my input.
never leave message - just human garbage phoning
They just keep calling and calling even after you hang up on them -- they have even been known to get down right dirty talking !
If you are sick of calls that won't stop and they are not covered by the DNC list, just get yourself a bullhorn with a siren or a whistle. Answer the phone and let it rip... and I promise you the calls will stop.
This is legal. I am being stalked and I plan to do this soon to the person stalking me. They will ultimately be rendered deaf, LOL
got three calls from 000-000-0000 so far tonight, ignored two of them. third one i decided to answer and see how long they would stay on the line. silent for 56 secs then they hung up. i didn't even say hello.
I just called the complaint department of Blockbuster and they say that this is not a number they use. The person I spoke with said that he will sent it up to management for further investigation. If anyone has any more information I would appreciate it being posted. We are getting multiple calls from this number each day - very annoying. We do not answer.
It was an automated message: "Hi my name is Tony from the Carpet and Tile......." at that point I hung up.
We are listed on the government Do not call list.
The caller ID on my cell phone shows 000-000-000. Whoever it is has called probably about 10 times in the last 30 minutes. I would hit ignore and whoever would just call right back. I eventually had to put my phone on silent and ended up missing an important call from a doctor's office.
For Gayle: If your complain to your phone company and they say they can do nothing about it, they are being less than forthcoming. It is possible they do not know this, but they can, at your request, change your phone number. There may be a charge of $15.00 or less, though many reputable companies will do at least one number change at no charge if you are being harassed.
a mix of zero numbers & unknown name calls began coming thru incessantly... pick up it says Sorry for the delay and we hang up. Also on the DNC list, but a new sweep of calls began coming thru so who knows...just pressing end for now ...
who is calling for and what they wants and how do they know our phone numbers
Has called several times....usually I don't answer. This time I answered and it was a recorded message talking about my financial future. I pressed 0 to try to reach a person and tell them to take me off their call list. When I did this, the line was answered, "Senator Tim Johnson's office."
I am on the no call list so why are these people calling and calling and calling. Stop.
Name not found. No answer after picking up, two days in a row.
Just called me. I did not answer.
Houston, Tx. 77082
They keep tell me that I owe them money. And they ask me if this is my name and they tell me a SSN and its not even my true SSN. What the hell is going on with this country. I dont fell safe anymore.
Luckily I have the ability to block complete phone numbers. I like my u-verse.
Anyone can, and many do use this #, or most any other number, by use of call spoofing software. This allows picking the number to show on called phone caller ID. Congress is trying to outlaw this software.
The calls started three days ago. As of today, this number has called five times. After reading all the comments here, it appears that scumbag companies can employ technical means to get aroung the DNC list. But, does anyone think these dirtbags could be paying off their local phone companies to do the same. We all know how greedy the phone service providers are and how they nickel-and-dime their customers for every service.
I changed my telephone with my bank last night and I started getting this 000-000-0000 number calling me on my cell phone. Only received one call so far but what I do when its my land line I answer and hit any key so they only hear a tone and I hold it for over 40 seconds and guess what? They go away!
i get a call everyday....i never have time to answer, because they call...my phone rings for 2 sec. and they hang up...i cant call them back either...maybe its the demon!!
CALLS WERE TWICE DAILY. NOW THEY'VE RESORTED TO PHONING EVERY 45-60 MINUTES. NEVER LEAVE A MESSAGE. ANSWERING MACHINE CONTINUES TO GET FILLED UP WITH THIS TRASH. THEY ARE STALKING/HARRASSING. I WISH THEY WOULD SEND WHATEVER VIA REGULAR MAIL OR SIMPLY CEASE.
I get this on my cell every 10 days or so. I never answer and they never left a message until now. Its was a an automated female voice that left the following cryptic message..."flash audio slash m underscore cc underscore underscore 4 v three hundred sixty nine thousand five hundred seventy two point zero"
I bein received the call on 4/16 and 4/17 and 4/18 (unknow name)
Caller says he is calling from California. When asked from where, he replied "The National Democratic Convention." I just hung up.
I keep getting this call, from what I can tell it is someone trying to hack my phone. I get a connection dial tone, network authorization, then my phone freezes a few times. I've traced it back one time, all I got out of that was that it was a government facility.
next time giving them my exs phone# that will teach them
next time im going to give them my ex wifes # sucks to be them
000-000-000 has called me a few times and it has been almost all the time blockbuster
Hawking Rand Paul being in town. Not a good way to promote yourself.
Received a call from this number today, answered, and there was only silence.
Some sort of political commentary on health care, recorded message
Please do not call me anymore. Thank you. SL Wilson
THIS STATRED 5 MONTHS AGO. LIKE CLOCK WORK 8:10 AM TO WHENEVER IN THE EVENING.7 DAYS A WEEK. SOMETIMES IT CALLS MY CELL UP TO 15 TIMES A DAY. IT IS ALWAYS A DEAD LINE. NEVER LEAVES A MESSAGE.
I have received several "robo" calls from American's United for Change. Listed below is the contact information for the folks that appear to be responsible for the campaign.
Jeremy Funk, Communications Director
Lauren Weiner, Deputy Communications Director
have called several times. Each time I have hit *57 and reported them to Verizon. Hopefully this will stop the calls
Glad for caller ID 000-000-0000 is enough to make me not pick up
So much for being on every known Do Not Call List ha ah
No message left on answering machine.
This number has called me twice. I don't know who it is. I answered once andjust sat on the phone; didn't say anything and it was a woman asking for me by my first name and I'm not sure why!!!!
So much for Anonymous Call Rejection and DNC list. Seems I'll have to use up a *60 slot.
(ffs, can't the phone companies tell that they're being spoofed? Does it really have to be so simple for the spammers?)
Go figure - It's the white hose trying to go for artificial pressure. Their a bunch of loosers.
Other than the first Hoe, this is the first time we are sickened by America with her Muslim husband now hammering us on the phone with his dirt bag motives. What happened to the Gov't do not call list, doesn't matter anymore? What a piece of crap that whole administration is. He may as well had Aires for AG.
We all know, we are from Chicago and our Pres is a thug!!!!!!!
Obama trying to shove the health care bill down your throat. What an idiot and wasting money again. The people don't want the garbage bill with pay offs and rip offs. What does this big eared freak not understand?
This call is now comming from Obama's task force trying to shove the health care bill down your throat and asks you to call your representative. Well we did call and it wasn't in favor of that naggers team of insulting American's garbage. Everybody knows it's a sham. The Obamics team simply wants to bankrupt America, it has nothing to do with health care. Ask his buddies and his mother if she was still alive.
The ID said 1000-0000000, and when i picked up, there was a click and silence.
Kim from the Phillipines called for National Insurance and Health. I told her we are not interested and please not to call again. SCAM ALERT.
I've been getting the 0000000000 calls regularly, usually in the afternoon. I'm thinking of picking up and blowing a whistle into the phone. That should stop them.
I only use my land line for my computer hookup. It's not for incoming calls. Of course, I COULD disconnect my telephone hook up from my computer hook up, but what's the fun in that?
If they'd leave a number, I could give it to Asset Protector Group, LLC, and they'd handle it.
I just got a call. Free boarding passes for a cruise to the Bahamas. Asked my age bracket, Male/female, smoke. When finished advised to contact www.surveyclaim.com to complete information for boarding passes...
this number has called my cell phone, and I refuse to answer it. This number called my friend's place of employment and in a highly angry tone asked for me.
Trying to get information regarding medications I take. Premium Plus was name given for company.
getting calls from this weird number. no one says anything. very annoying. the phone company should give evertone free call blocking to block these people.
Has called before, never leaves message. Just calls, and if you answer, long pause, then Indian sounding guy comes on, I hang up.
Call is from the "State Police" for their "fund raiser". The jerkoff on the phone calls you by first name like he knows you and then starts begging for pennies. Losers....
I have had this call a few times and decided to answer, said he was with online promotions and then said he would call back at a different time and hung up. Foreign sounding guy. startin to piss me off
getting tired of all these calls. I get 1-2 calls daily from 000-000-0000 for a couple of months already. I keep turning them in to the DNC list but I know they don't do anything (except take our tax dollars to do nothing). So many scammers block their number these days it's hard to tell who it is. They don't leave messages and when I do pick up and not say anything, they don't speak either and eventually hang up. Totally useless harrassment.
They called me asking for Frank.?
Finally picked and the person asked me if I took credit cards...i hung up.
Soiunds like a scam?/
momkin jayja saliha
Asked if I took credit card payments. I said no. Asked if I received and processed checks or money orders. No again. She said OK and Bye.
called and hung up
I have received a call from this number three times in the last two days. They oughtto be happy and feel lucky I have no idea who they are. They sure as hell would not want to see what happens if I knew who it was.
Received a call from 000-000-0000 at 12:28 pm (ET) on February 2, 2010. The caller ID showed up as UNKNOWN NAME and who ever called from this number did not bother to leave a message on my answer machine.
i picked up and it said your captin here or something
just got another call from this number on my cell. no name just zeros and no voicemail either
The calls from 000-000-0000 had stopped for about 8 months. this week they started up again. We had 5 calls today alone. We lot them go to the answering machine and they hang up.
I receive at least 3 calls per day from this Name Unavailable, let it go to answer machine, nothing there. this is not a cell phone. Annoying.
I received a call from 000-000-0000 and the individual on the phone first asked me to confirm my name, and then began asking medical questions, such as 'do you take any medications'? First I thought it was telemarketers trying to cell me phony prescription drugs, then it occurred to me that it may be a scam to charge your cell phone bill. I immediately called my cell phone service provider to report it (I am still on hold as I type this!).
i have been called from this number for several months now... kind of a harrassment... i think they are TERRORISTS doing some kind of unholy deed...
I have got a wonderful cruise,... thanks
A caller using all zeros called every ten minutes for two hours this morning, hanging up each time I tried to answer. Finally a woman replied after maybe the 20th call, telling me my gas bill was due. She had old info, my bill had been payed two weeks before. She said she was with a third party service called NCO that NICOR gas paid to make the calls, and that it was fine that the company number showed as all zeros, since they were a collection agency. I told her to stop calling. So far no more calls, and I called NICOR to complain.
Finally found out who it was!
Health Data Management. Almost signed up for something a while ago and never proceeded to finish the application online...but did include my number.
We've just had a call from '000'. Nobody spoke and the caller (or automated calling program) hung up right away.
Got 3 missed calls from 000-000-0000 today. My number is also on Do not call list. I didn't get to pick up and I also work in Healthcare/Medical IT. Turned my phone from silent to vibrate so I can pick up next time and find out what's this all about.
They need to stop calling
Phone number 1-000-000-0000, called today, picked it up and I didn't respond, a few seconds later a message started to come on saying it was America Healthcare Now. I hung up. Idiots don't know when to stop calling....
This call was a recorded message on the Health Care Bill!!! My phone number is unlisted and is on The DO NOT CALL REGISTRY LIST!!!! How do we stop them from calling?? You can not speak to any one to tell them to stop where it is a recording and it is illegal to do this in the State of FL.!!!
"Why YES - I AM on the state & national do-not-call list - how may I report you?" >:-(
1st call from them & nobody was there.
messege left was Hello at 4:45 am!!
This is a spoofed number, that's why so many different calls. After reading about it on a site like this I bought a Panasonic phone that allows you to block up to 20 numbers you select. I've now been using it for two months and have been keeping track of results. It has reduced the number of calls drastically, from 5-6 ea. per day from 2-3 numbers to 1-3 per day. I add new blocked numbers as new ones arise. I believe they hear a busy signal. The only annoying thing is it does ring one time before it recognizes and blocks the call, so we don't answer any calls until it rings twice and we check the caller ID. It's a hassle but it's reduced these calls drastically. I was about ready to through out the phone but that's where we get our DSL.
I just got a call from 000-000-0000, the female on the line told me she was trying to send a fax to the printer on my computer in my business and needed the model number to the printer..????????????.... I asked her who she was and she claimed to be trying to send a fax for her boss... I asked again her name she said it was Theresa Lynn. I asked her then the name of the business she was calling for, she said Data Line. I said I never of it and that I wanted to talk to her boss, she said ,"sir, I don't want to go around in circles here, I just need to send this fax.", I told her it was strange that she was wanting a printer's model number to send a fax, and that I wanted to know why she needed that, and she then said," Well, I will need to tell my boss that you are being uncooperative." and hung up... STRANGE.
No message left. An obviously false caller ID.
There are countless annoying calls from this number and many other numbers. What happend to "do not call"? It's useless!
We have been called every day to the point of harassment by this number and normally no one speaks. Today the man identified himself as being with Time Warner promotions. It is terrible that we have to give our number to these companies for their services and then they harass us.
United Proserv. Eanting to send me energy coupons again. Getting devious, too since caller ID now shows 000-000-0000 when they call.
there have been 2 calls every day for 2 months, noone ever says anything but i can hear clicking
HOW TO OBTAIN A CIVIL SUBPOENA
A subpoena is a court order telling a witness to appear at a civil trial or court hearing, attend a deposition or produce documents or records. This procedure for requesting and using subpoenas is pursuant to Rules 30.01,and 45 of the Minnesota Rules of Civil Procedure. Subpoenas are issued only for open cases that are currently filed in Court.
Subpoenas to be used in civil matters are available from the Civil Division, room 600 or Conciliation/Housing Court room 650, Ramsey County Courthouse, 15 West Kellogg Blvd., Saint Paul, Minnesota 55102. A fee of $12.00 is charged for each subpoena.
To obtain a subpoena by mail for a trial, deposition or production of documents you must file a written request with the Civil Division. Your request must state the following:
name of the case and file number
who you represent
the purpose of the subpoena (trial, deposition or production of documents)
a copy of the Notice of Taking Deposition and proof of service of the Notice on all parties to the lawsuit
date of trial or hearing and assigned Judge
how many subpoenas are being requested
$12.00 fee for each subpoena
If you are requesting documents, records or tangible objects you must subpoena the person for a hearing or a deposition.
The subpoena must be served by the Sheriff's office or any person over the age of 18 who has no interest in the outcome of the legal proceedings. The subpoena must be handed to the person to be served or can be left at his/her residence with a person of suitable age and discretion who also resides there. Subpoenas may not be served on legal holidays or on Sundays (MSA 645.44, 624.04) and must be served in a timely manner in order to give the witness reasonable time to appear or respond. The person serving the subpoena must fill out an affidavit of service stating when, where and to whom the subpoena was served.

Witness fees of $20.00 per day and mileage fees of .28¢ per mile calculated roundtrip from the witness's residence must be served with the subpoena (MSA 357.22). If you wish to have the court enforce the witness's failure to appear as civil contempt of court, you must file the affidavit of service with the court prior to the date of the witness's appearance.

I just got called from 000-000-0000 and didnt answer. What is this all about?????
The guy said he was from my local Fraternal Order of Police, apparently using this number as they have been told NOT to call again. Must think we're too stupid not to wonder why an organization for police would have a blocked number.
This is the 2nd time they've been told not to call. Next time I'm going to ask him what local he's calling from! Bet he gets it wrong!
all black people are dog shit smelling monkies !!!
I answered as the police officer investigating a homicide and asked who was on the line as they are now a suspect for calling the scene of a crime. They told me they were a telemarketer and hung up. No calls since!!
Recieved at least 15 of these calls. It comes up as UNKNOWN CALLER. Answered one no one there. Answered one today and it was someone from Arizona asking for a pledge for the Indian children who are starving and dying. I said no as the number was not a real number and I figured it was a scam. How can one number have so many different reasons for calling? I have read the list below and am astounded the number of charities are asking for money and from so many states this has to be a scam. Report this to the FBI or the State Police of your state.
I have no idea. I have ignored and today as I was on here they called, I answered no one spoke. How can the phone company allow this to go through with all zero's AND unavailable number!
I have this number called me. I ignored it for a while it stopped. Now three months later it is back. I will ignore it again.
This is the third call with this odd non-number. The first two times I wasn't here. I did pick up on the last one to see who was calling and got nothing but dead air. My only hope is that they got caught and the dead air was due to the fact that they had been disconnected PERMANENTLY.
They call every day. If I pick up there is no one on the line. AARGH.
this number calls at least once a day, sometimes twice....how do we stop this????
none, i didn't pick it up
Its most likely a spoof caller masking their # with a blank # so you can pick up the phone
calls once every couple minutes; has been going on for an hour now
They call several times a day. We just ignor it.
I have had calls from various companies, never blockbuster and not always a recording-A charity called and told me they use this number because it is cheaper to use than paying for caller ID. Most of the calls are charities but I did receive a call from verizon, but they included a way not to be removed from their list. WE just look at caller id now and don't answer.
Call came to Kansas from somewhere, leaving this dummy number behind. Call came at 15:41 hours CDT on 10-13-09. Call not answered and no message left.
From other sites I learn it is a polling outfit who set this up to read on our caller ID.
lol these comments are hilarious. btw Verizon Wireless ftw. I answer the call, nothing so I hang up. Another ring like 10 seconds after, I answer, nothing. Turn phone on silent, 10 seconds later flashing lights on my phone, I ignore. Flashing lights!!! -_-" (grrr) I turn off my phone. Another ring wtf! haha whoops didn't turn it off my bad. well its good to know others got it too.
It was a stupid ObamaCare message this stinks they called my work phone in the middle of a job Irony is I was doing techincal work on a computer at a hospital.
I've had these calls numerous times and it's irritating as my husband is deaf and I have to get all this junk. isn't there anyway to stop it??? it's always out of area today again at 12:57pm
I didn't listen to the pitch. Claimed to be CCI research, working for Gongos research. Contact number: (509) 624-8228 Address: 627 E Sprague Suite A, Spokane WA 99202.
Obviously this is a number that many different companies will spoof.
I answered and it was someone soliciting money for the Navajo Relief fund.
finally answered the calls from 000-000-0000 (caller id showed unknown name) and the caller on the other end said they were calling from PTS and wanted to speak to me. I asked what PTS was and the best i could ascertain was it was a political survey organization. They asked if I was registered to vote and I refused to speak any further. Hopefully they will stop calling.
a recorded message warning about the dangers ahead regarding the new health care bills in congress.
For the third time in a row this week, I've gotten a call from this 0000000000 number and the first time around, I didn't answer, the second time around, I did and got no response, but just now (on Thursday 10/8/09 at 11:57 PM Pacific time) I answered the number and a woman by the name of Kate calling from Las Vegas, Nevada answered my hello on the other end of the receiver; the number comes from the office of Shawn Casey and his make money at home-based business. She explained to me that the number shows up as a bunch of zeros because they're using a voice internet protocol thing. So if you get a call from this number, it's probably going to be them. If you google this home based business info or you've gotten a bunch of emails from him, then you already know about this opp in which he offers "the whole damn thing for free" just to charge you nearly $30 for shipping and handling and what not.
I to have been getting calls from ths number,they call at 5.30 am some mormings
needless to say if I am not expecting a call I don,t answer it
I'm getting called 4-12 times per day. Sometimes I pick up and they hang up. Three times I picked up and spoke to someone asking them to take me off the list. They just hang up. Once I picked up and they tried to sell me PENS. Are you kidding me?
Businesses have learned how to keep their identity secret by dialing a code that shows the above no. I receive 1 or more calls a day, never leave a msg. or say anything if I answer.
I have been getting calls from 0000000 and it needs to stop
This number has been calling for several days at work. Just today they have called 4 times in the last 3 hours. the numbers shows as (000)000-0000. it is so bother some. I wish I could pull them out of the phone and then hit them with it. turds!
For 2 weeks now they call 2-4 times a day and never leave a message. Tried picking up once-long delay and call dropped.
Northstar collection company
We let all unfamiliar calls go to the message machine. This number calls us twice a day for two full weeks and does not leave a message. I hope the bastard's wedding tackle rots off along with his fingers!
I keep getting calls from 000-000-0000 and also variations on it, ex. 00-00-000 and 0000000000 (or whatever).
They've been calling every day for the last week or so and I picked up only once and let them listen to the TV blaring. LOL
NEVER PICK UP .
Blockbuster S**ks !This is just bull****! I kept the movie 5 days and they are going to call my house. They know where I live. Does the library call you if you keep the book a little longer? Just let me pay the late fees and return the movie when I am ready. Blockbuster has a way of getting under people's skin by calling my house over a stupid movie. They need to be replaced. I am sick of these people! They called at 9:17 AM on a Saturday at a time when people like to sleep late. I hope they go out of business.
This number has been calling twice a day for a long time now, looked it up here and out of curiousity I answered...the 1st call, no one was there, the 2nd call was someone from the Indian League. Told him to stop calling and that his 000 ph ID# was offensive...he said yes maam...we'll see
I just had this call nothing was said on the other line just heard breathing. I love calls like this. Laying right by the phone I have a whistle I blow . I blow this whistle full force. They hang up and let me tell you they never call back.
I recieved yet another one of these calls. I answered it then jammed the star button many times to scramble their
I've gotten calls from 000-000-0000 a couple of times a day, whenever I answer though the line goes dead. I tried calling it back once and verizon said that it couldn't make the call.
Any crooked company uses this number to get through someone call block. The system asks the caller to enter their phone number and then enter this (oooooooooo). If you get a call from this number dont bother answering it. Reputable companies dont have a problem showing their real telephone numbers. Depending on what state you are from this is illegal. Companies doing sales calls are required to divulge their identity. We have a company that would use this tactic. I would answer and they would ask for the owner. When I told them he wasnt available (even though he was) they immediately hung up on me. Companies are also required to tell the person who they are and with what company when asked. If they hang up you dont have time to ask this information. So one day I said I was the owner and then got the callers company name. It was some kind of Pen company in Seattle. I immediately told them to take our number off the list and hung up on them this time. We will see if it works.
They started calling my cell phone over the weekend. I cussed them out yesterday told them not to call back. They called again today, I asked who they were and they said MoveOn.org - I said this is a cell phone therefore I have to pay for this call -- remove this number from your list and NEVER call back - then I hung up.
They just started calling me in the past few weeks. Very annoying. Never pick up. I programmed that number on my cell phone with a silent ring tone, so now when they call, i don't even hear them.
just got the call 000-000-000 while i was on line and was notified iI receivied a virus on my computer (quarantied thankfully).
They called our business, asked for the owner who was not there, and he proceeded to tell me that the call wasnt that important anyways, and hung up on me. Call was untraceable.. Bastards..
It calls everyday and today it called twice. I put the number in my memory and turned of the ringer. Never leaves a message either. This is going on two weeks now.
ive never got a number like this! what the heck?! it is so odd because when i said hello the person said goodbye then hanged up! who the hell are these people that call?! what is up with the # 000-000-000?
got this call today. bizarre number :o
This phone number is a third-party auto-dialing service. Companies from non-profits to the gas company hire them to call people using a computer dialer. They are sent a file with all the numbers and a computer dials the numbers, then plays a message given to them by the non-profit, gas company, etc. ("The Company"), or in some cases, it may detect that a human answered and will alert someone back at The Company that there is a live human at home so they can call you from a real phone and try to sell, collect, ask for donation, whatever. The dialer-company uses 000-000-0000 by "spoofing" their number so you don't know who is really calling. Should be illegal. They also are sometimes contracted to "report" the time and date they tried to call and the result. This company files false reports of actually talking to a person or it being a bad number, just so they can quit cycling it and get paid by "The Company" who hired them. For example, a utility company might hire them to call you to let you know your service may be disconnected if you don't call them back. But they never leave that message, so basically the utility is wasting their money. This company is not only scamming us, they are scamming the company who hired them in many cases.
I picked up on the call out of curiosity since I have started getting telemarketing calls again. I try to get enough info to make an FTC report. It was someone allegedly from some indian council. Since it was probably a non-profit I just hung up mid-sentence. No sense in listening to another loooong scripted speech.
Decided to finally answer one of these calls yesterday morning ... It was a solicitor for a Non-profit agency in Utah asking for donations for children and elders on a reservation in Utah. I would not give out any credit card information, but asked for something to be put into the mail. I will be very interested if something gets sent to my home.
called yesterday, picked it up and no one spoke, know someone was on the other side, i could hear there breathing, then they just hung up. i dont know who it is, and i dont care being in the ARNG its kind of fustrateing im getting calls when im at drill, or if im doing something important, and they never say anything, this past few weeks they been doing it, i tried to block it on my cell phone but it doesnt work, for some odd reason it bypasses it, dont see how its the government being that im an MP and i have no reason to discuss anything confidential, i dont have anything confidential to say im not that kind of MP, just do convoy security. but what bugs me is im not the only one who gets these calls.
they called 8/11 in the evening and 8/12 at dinnertime. NO MESSG.
STOP these calls now!
Three times today, and it's not even noon. We never answer.
They're relentless though! Yesterday was just as bad.
They do stay on the line long enough for the answering machine to pick up and start recording though.
I didn't answer this time, but over the past few days I gotten several calls from right-wing groups urging me to tell my Congressman to stop the healthcare bill. One of them was about medicare, and if I hadn't known better (as most seniors don't) it would have scared me half to death! Horrible! Despicable!
When I see numbers like this, I let the machine get it. Won't even waste my time with these idiots because I know they are bogus, scammers.
theyve been calling for like 10 friken days no response.
The number 000-000-0000 calls i get the phonne no response. wtf
Dish Network Sales call every day for 5 days.
Calls everyday and now today twice after I didn't anwser the phone. I AM SO TIRED OF THESE CALLS I DON'T WANT TO EVEN ANSWER THE PHONE. HOW DO I STOP THESE CALLS
Beware. Many may not know this, but sometimes when a phone call is made to a house and there is no answer on the other end......when you put your phone back down on the carriage and make contact to the carriage with the phone...it actually turns on the microphone to the phone and the phone companies/government can listen into conversations going on in your household at anytime they please. Yes, evey phone is a well planted mutual bug. This is actually old news.
Tried to see me prescription drugs from out of the Country. Calls several times a wekk for over 2 years!
Keeps calling, not daily, but several times a week, for a while then a break, then the calls start up again. NEVER LEAVES A MESSAGE, but stays on line long enough to make my machine think there was a msg left.
Got a call from 000-000-0000. They wanted to give me an update on President Obama's healthcare plan.
did not leave message.
omgg they keep calling me and then i once answered n it was this man and he was like sorri rong number and he keeps calling my fone n it getting on my nerves man and once it called my friends cellie and he was i guess trying to get info from her like her name, age, occupation etc... so we knew it wasn;t a tellmarketer cuz they usually now our names when they call and don't really ask age/ occupation so this guy is kinda fishy
I get a dozen calls a day from this all-zero number. They never leave messages. If this is BlockBuster, it would make more sense if they left a message. By not leaving a message, it sounds like a scam. Tonight I actually answered but I immediately asked to speak to their supervisor. Silence. I asked another time. Silence. Then they hung up. I didn't hear anyone speak on the other end at all. These calls start in the morning and go right up to 9pm.
getting a call daily and when answered a quick hangup
Someone called me and asked for my dad's buisness and knew his name. It was a lady who spoke really fast and said something about community related jobs or something.
I'am getting this phone number calling me and Iam getting sick of it big time who is this????? how can I block it from my Cell phone?
If you have a phone company where you can get online and type in the number to block, do it. I wasn't sure if typing in all zeros would work, but the block worked. So now anybody who calls in with all zeros doesn't get through. (Thank God for caller ID and call block). And I have my aunt to thank for realizing the importance of call block.
They called our landline at 4:25 pm, caller ID showed "Unknown Name" and 000-000-0000. The call went to voice mail and it indicated they left a message, but it was just blank.
I've answered several times, sometimes it just hangs up. The 2 times I answered they started saying they were from the American Indian something or other (I'm thinking India). The first time I said I was on the Do Not Call List, but she said they were a non-profit or some other BS. And I said I don't care! Don't call me. The second time I tried to say the same thing, but was frustrated they were still calling me and hung up on them.
i recieved this number today with 7 zeros 0000000 i have a private number so can't understand who it is and i find it strange that it only has 7 numbers albiet zero's any help would be appreciated
on 5/17/09 i was called by this mysterious number. at first i was confused. when i thought hard, i started getting freaked out. i thought maybe someone was stalking me. then i used common sense. it was probably some telemarketer.
Weren't home. No message on answering machine. Has called 3 times this week.
Did not answer phone. They didn't leave a message.
I do not answer this type of call. Must be a VERY important call when the need to hide their name and spoof their number. IDIOTS!
They have called my cellular phone a few times. I answered once, worried that I had forgotten to pay a bill or something. The lady asked for me by first name, I answered with a question as to who was calling. She said her first name and then mumbled the name of the business. When I asked her to repeat it, she became irritated and again mumbled through her answer. I asked for the reason of the call. She said "..it is in regard to your business.." I cut her off saying I didn't have a business and hung-up. The number has called once since then (a couple of days) but has not left a message.
When I received the third call in an hour from this number with someone (2 men & 1 woman) rudely demanding to speak to the owner or controller, I decided to get as much info as possible. The first 2 hung up when I told them nobody was available. The 3rd one told me her name was Lisa and she was calling from Commercial Investigations regarding a debt investigation. I asked if it was our debt and she said no. I asked for a phone number and she hung up on me. So I Googled the company and called them back (866-646-9663 FYI they have over 10,000 complaints logged against them) to speak to a manager. The operator YELLED at me when I refused to give her my number or company name. When I told her to stop yelling at me and let me speak to a manager, I was put on hold. After approximately 5 minutes (the timer on the phone was 5:29) they disconnected me. Yeah, like I wasn't mad to begin with. So, I called back. They picked up the phone (I could hear people in the background) and was immediately put on hold. After about 2 minutes, a lady picked up the phone and at first was at least not rude. I told her about the calls I received this morning and she wanted my phone number to add it to the do-not-call list. We have approximately 75 numbers (large corporation) and I don't know which number it comes in on. She wanted my company name which I told her I was not comfortable giving. She kept insisting on a number or company name. She rudely said "what do you want me to do?". I told her that since it is against the law for telemarketers to block their number (see www.fcc.gov I wanted her to remove the block on their number. She hung up on me. My next step after this is to log a complaint with the FCC (http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm).
Well id like for everyone to know i read alotttttttttttt of these complaints from household surveys to saying there calling from a hospital to accepting government money winnings to calling about cigerette taxes lol even acting as a realtor asking for the box number... calling cell phones i MEAN OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WANNA KNOW HOW I KNOW THIS ????????????? CAUSE IM AN EMPLOYEE AND NONE OF THESE ARE FACTS
Spoofed caller ID. Democrats trying to drum up support for Obaba's politics. Were very aggressive in trying to get me to agree with them, call my congressman and senators, etc. As is usual with the Socialist Liberals, tried to claim being non-partisan, interested in the good of everyone, etc. Made me mad as hell!
We are on national and state Do Not Call list, and have never contributed to the Democratic party or candidates. Threatened to report them, but they said they were "immune." Not in this state, they're not!

Had these calls last year, now I have two today. Like a bad penny, they just show up!
They've called me twice, the first time I was on my way home from school, and today I answered, said something about "Household Foods," some kind of survey I think. When I asked how they had gotten my number, he responded with, "You purchased me, ma'am," and hung up. Very weird, very rude.
Called by this number yesterday...she stated she was from GZ services. Started asking about my family members...BY NAME...who the heck are these people? I told her I was an only child orphan from the planet Urvagina and none of my alien relatives lived on this space sphere.
told me they were calling from the hospital to collect bill money!!! GGRRRRr.leave me alone.
I have friends who work for Raytheon and when they call, this is what shows on the Caller ID. I guess they're just all super-secret and don't want anybody to know their numbers.
they callled MULTIPLE times and never left message. When i finally answered, it was "Sara Lopez from the State of California" with a survey about womens health.
They call over and over - I finally put the block on 'em
Ok its April 1st and maybe its a joke from one of my buddys but I started to get calls from 000-000-0000 all day long. I do not answer because I own alot of money which I cannot help, because I'm going to die. I cannot work anymore and can not pay my bills i.e. C.C.'s. But I like to have fun with telemarketer's. Just get your mind right and think about it and you can have fun with these a**holes. Two links to get you started. They are Tom Mabe links on youtube which deals with telea**hole's. Hope I'm not out of line here but was just thinking this might help some of you. Oh and the girl Connie J go of over the police's head like the city manager which is the boss of the P.D. or the county D.A. Any way here are the links and a little warning best not to have kids in the room while at this youtube addy not really bad or anything just best I think and if the links don't work just do a search for Tom Made. You WILL laugh.www.youtube.com
I've been getting calls from this number frequently but, am always at work and can't answer. I took off early today, and was actually talk to them. It was someone w/ a THICK eastern indian accent saying that his name was, Steven Jones....right?!?!?! He then said that I had been approved for a $5,000 grant from the U.S. government. All he needed was my banking information and it would be sent over promptly.....again, right?!?!?!? Clearly, this is a scam. I guess they have gone from emailing to actually calling. AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID AVOID
It is a recording asking for someone who does not live here. They say they are from Proctor Hospital and when I press "4" to say they don't live here, which I have done more than 50 times now, they continue to call 5-6 times a day, everyday.
Phillip Morris called AGAIN asking about the Rhode Island cigarette excise tax, (I LIVE IN KANSAS) and this time I asked them how they could call me on my cell phone. They said they didn't mean to call me on my cell phone and asked if I would like to be on their do-not-call list. I asked why they were allowed to call me in the first place. Legally, I have to have done business with them or an affiliate (owned by) company in the last two years, and I have never done any business with Phillip-Morris. I asked to speak to a manager and then she hung up on me.
Phillip Morris called asking if I supported the new Rhode Island Cigarette excise tax. I said yes, they hung up.
I'm getting at least 3 to 5 calls a day from this number on my Verizon Wireless phone. I've attempted to answer it several times and get nothing except a disconnect from the network. I'm getting tired of this and advised VZW.
A realtor called from 000-000-0000 wanted to show our home for sale, gave him the lock
box key number, and then called Altell to see if was a real number. They said yes,
that it could be a restricted number...............changed the lock box number.
I received a couple of calls last night from this number all zeros but when I tried to hit *69 to find out who called it said could not be reached.
It is called "Lying through non submission"
They don't tell a lie, they lie by not giving the truth. As we all know the phone number 000-000-0000 is a lie.
I am going to ask that guy on the other end of the phone if he thinks I am stupid, because I would never do business with a liar.
That 000-000-0000 number shows up on my wife's cell phone and it stops ringing just before it goes to voice mail. So this guy is definitely phishing for a sucker.
I answered it the other morning around 8:30 am and He asked for her and I said "she was busy" and he hung up. that same number called the next day and again the very next day and again today. How can we make these calls stop?
Keeps calling. I have never picked up the phone and there is no message. This number is deliberately trying to hide who they are on caller ID. Do not answer when this shows up. You would not open your door to someone wearing a mask would you? I don't care who or what they are, I will NEVER answer when this shows up on caller ID.
One thing is for sure, it is nothing important that you need to answer so don't!
Someone from this spoofed number just called asking me to support the so-called budget. Say what? I don't vote on the budget.
Well, the calls from Mimi stopped after I got onto the "Do Not Call List" but I am still getting the boat horn. All I have is a cell, but fortunately all incoming calls are free on my plan. I was on vacation and three time zones away. I got the call at 6am local time. If gotten a hold of someone, I think that I would have killed them. I don't drink very often anymore and I was SO hung over....
Just FYI, the Canadian Do Not Call list has exemptions. Political parties, registered charities and surveys are still allowed. That is why the boat can call. They say that it is a survey.
I'd like the shove the boat up Mimi's butt. I hate that bitch!
We've been getting this phone call constantly for the past six months. Sometimes after this number calls, we try to use the phone and it won't work; no dial tone. Sometimes we try to use the phone, and we hear international languages on the phone, so we can't use it. We called the phone service, and they listened and said it was just a bad switch. We are now on our third switch in two months, so we know it is not the switch. It is definitely spoofing. People from other countries have learned to use their computer to block out their personal phone number, so they can use your phone line without having to pay for long distance calls that they make. One phone call lasted 45 minutes on our phone line. Someone needs to catch these people. It really is a form of stealing! Also, sometimes our internet gets frozen when this call 0-000-000-0000 comes onto our land line. Really tired of this! Anyone know how to stop this?
GMAC financial services uses this number when calling me when my payment is past due. I called my 800# for GMAC FS on this. They said its one of their out of the country call centers and its cheaper for them to input all zeros rather than paying for an American call ID# phone number to appear from an out of the country call.
Leaves no message
We have received 13 calls in the past 6 days. As many as 4 in one day. We are registered with the Do Not Call Registry. Cannot figure out how to stop these calls.
This number tends to show up on my ATT cell phone number whenever Blockbuster Video calls to let us know that an item has been kept past the due date.
Company: Could be any, CID is bogus (NPA 000 is invalid, Exchange 000 is invalid)
DNC Status: Unknown
Call Purpose: Could be anything, likely illicit as the CID information is completely bogus
Recommended Action: Ignore. If you answer, follow common sense rules and never give out any information and always remember that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
the feeble voice said he needed someone to talk to about "things", I told him to go f**k himself at 3:14 am
Caller said she was calling on behalf of the Ohio Republican Party and I hung up.
I have received numerous calls from this 000-000-0000 the last few days, no one talks on the other end. How annoying! If your going to call me with a funky number, at least grow something and TALK!
Got our first call from this number. Nothing listed as the company name.
Have gotten calls from this number for weeks now. Never answered it, not going to answer it. You know how you get tons of spam Emails and they all have that 'unsubscribe' link to click on? Of course when you do, they know they are reaching someone and continue on just the same. I figure answering this call just encourages whoever it is. If none of us ever answered a 000-000-0000 phone call, the masking strategy wouldn't be working for them and I'd guess they'd give up the practice eventually.
Has rang our house and now my sisters asking for a "mrs green" (who does not exist) then asked about her financial situation?? She put the phone down, who are these bellends??!
I wouldn't even mind if somebody spoke to me but the past week and a half all I've had is heavy breathing from this number....they go to the trouble of leaving it on my answer phone rather than just hang up when they know nobody is going to answer which just seems creepy to me.
I got a call saying won a trip what is this crap
This 000-000-0000 calls here claiming to be Senior Benefits. They are using up space on our answering machine by leaving a lengthy message, when we are not home. Already reported to the National Do Not Call registry.
The caller ID just shows a zero. The call every hour even on Sunday. Thye never leave a message.
5 minutes earlier I received a call from # 555-555-5555
(quote)= It's the end of days stuff. I'm not religious but the economy, the wars, the greed, the everything stuff. It's timing. The phones could have gone whacko some time before but they didn't. it's not a glitch. it's not anything other than what it is. If you really want to take this further, find out what links everyone that's receiving these calls. Find out the thing that everyone that gets these calls has in common. Might be interesting....
Good luck...Michael (quote)
I know I know They all have phones!!!! :)
Its an internet program that allows these callers to call you from an internet connection and disguise their number.. its not just one company it is several unethical companies and is illegal... ignore it or file a complaint with the better business bureau..
Hello. And Bye.
An important business message from (garbled name).
Wouldn't say a thing. I tried to call back and got a bust tone.
What kind of a number is all "0". When is someone going to track these guys down? I have not kept track of the amount from this one alone but had to be at least 100 times in the past year alone. Wow I just looked at the number here the screen says 763 comments. Ya think!
did i win>???????????? i am from pasadena and i got a phone call from my captain. he said i won a 2 tickets to a cruse. will see if this is all bull shit or if it is real. jejejjeejejejejejjeejejej
It's Blockbuster. Someone who had my number previously never returned their videos.
Appellis, a collection agency apparently. I have no business with them and they called my cell phone. I don't give it out to anyone so don't know how they got it. Recorded message didn't even ask for me, just wanted a return call to a 1-800 number.
I just received a call from this number (000-000-0000). I didn't even answer it, they didn't even leave a message. I received call for like 4 time for the past 2 or 3 day. I'm sick and tired of this number.
If you support the presidents position press 1 now. did not say what position. like a dummy I think I pushed 1 because I didn't hear all the message I was just trying to answer the phone. I do not support anything that he
is doing right now.......
Hey, if you want more information on Vici Financial, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I used to work for them. They were bad people.
I have their phone number, address, what they do and why they do it.
?? When I called the number back, it went dead.
Claimed to represent my credit card company but didn't know which card I was asking about.
Get callls from them almost dayly, may leave a message about needing to contact me about changes in interest rate on my card. and leave a return number,but thats rare reported it to my bank and its a well known scam number.
Or I just won a trip to Floida or somwhere, it sometimes also shows my own phone number at the end. Its anoying since their equipment is defective or overused hang ups and a few seconds after ansering, no music or any background noise herd.
Try setting ansering machine with the highes number of rings a spossible 6-9 then then on the message record the sound of a faxmahine or pc ansering the line let that play for 2 minutes. Recording on a mp3 machine or and portable dictating machine. Won't stopp them but now I don't get 10 scam calls fo every 1 legitimate calls. If your board and if they leave a reteturn toll free number, AND AUTOMATED SYTEM ANSERS enter combinations of * # AND 1 TO 4 DIGITS YOU EVENTUALLY FIND MAILBOXES TO leave lenthy music, on each.voive mail.
The company responsible for all these call is....
"Elite Options"....check out their website....
I live in Ontario. I was getting calls from this number daily and just allowing it to go to the answering machine, however, no messages were ever left. One day I decided to pick up. The recorded message started with the sound of a cruise ship horn and then proceeded to tell me about a trip. I hung up. The next day was the same thing, a couple of hours later though. I picked up and heard the boat horn again and hung up. We haven't received a call from them since. It's been about 6 days. At first I thought it was just them taking a break for the weekend, but it's Thursday and still no call....fingers crossed. Maybe they actually do give up. :)
I have been receiving this call for a long time now I finally picked up and it says this is your captain speaking answer these 10 questions and you win a trip....so I decided to have fun and just answer them and see what happens. NOTHING IN LIFE IS for free! So the questions were age group, what kind of payment do you use when you buy your groceries, and do you have any kids.....stuff like that. Then after you get transferred to a real person. I hung up at this point.....I almost think I should have just kept going. They will probably call back though.
11 calls in 22 hours! It rings and rings if I don't answer and, if I do, tries to transfer me (can hear the clicking of a switching system) and then HANGS UP ON ME only to call back a few minutes later!!!
probably its "eagle eye"
This 000-000-0000 number seems to be a mask for various VOIP calling centers that are attempting to be stealthed. The calls originate from a digital IP phone based call center, not land line based, and then go thru an internet digital gateway which turns them into a land line call. The digital gateway is where they are able to successfully mask their caller ID. I believe this is illegal, as well as completely barren of ethical concerns. But I'm a voip tech, not a lawyer. Somebody better versed in telecommunications law should hunt down the VOIP service providers for these call centers and make them accountable for their actions.
I got a call from my credit card company asking me to make a over the phone check by phone payment. I was like yeah right sucka!! Not going to happen.
I keep getting this call, despite having my number on a Canadian national "do not call" list. I don't pick up when I don't know the caller - with this, the message is a generic automated advertising a travel/cruise offer.
According to Canadian law, the company doing the calling is committing a criminal act. Now if the company could be identified and fined. $100,000,000.00 (one zero per zero in the phone number) per call sound about right?
This number recently started calling, once a day about 3 weeks ago. The number calls my cell phone and home number at the exact same time and if I answer there is a recording on the other end asking that I press 1 to accept call or 2 to send to VM or 3 to listen and record.
This is obviously a "spoofed" number, so anyone on the other end is hiding their true identity in the hopes that we're stupid enough to answer. If you do, and there is someone on the other end, odds are that they will try and "phish" for your personal data. Legitimate companies will often appear listed as "name unavailable" etc., but do not, as a general rule, conceal who they are by concocting an obviously bogus phone number.
This all-zeros number appears to be a catch-all for several different scam artists/telemarketers. What's annoying is my cell phone has recently started receiving the all-zeros calls on an almost daily basis, always that cruise line message that starts with the fog-horn. Then there's the one with some bimbo going "Hi, this is Mimi" that usually calls me around 7:30 PM on my landline. What's annoying is my cellphone company (Rogers), while they do have a screening service, charges you for it, and if you happen to be someone who would rather eat nails than install Internet Explorer on his computer you're hooped if you actually want to do anything with that service. Unfortunately the call doesn't always come up as 1-000-000-0000 on the call display, so I can't just ignore the incoming call.
This effing number calls my cell phone AND homephone at least once a day and at the most 6 times a day. They call during the daytime and in the middle of the night when I'm trying to sleep. I have never picked up knowing it would be a telemarketer. Home phone number is on the do not call list, and yet these people get past. SO ANNOYING. SHOULD BE ILLEGAL!!!!!
I used to get calls from this (000)000-0000. I called my cell phone provider. They told me that when you get all 0's on your caller ID its an error in the caller ID system. It is usually a telemarketer calling. The likelihood that all of us on here are getting calls from the same person is nil. My phone company recommended calling them directly after the 0's number calls to find out the the actual number of the caller. Once you do this, give the company a call, and express your dissatisfaction over the situation and threaten them with a BBB complaint. From what I've found, this seems to get your number off the list, and you won't hear from them again. Keep in mind however, that if you get another all 0's call, that it is not likely the same company calling. Simply call your provider again, and repeat the above directions to handle it again. The DO NOT CALL registry is not a foolproof system, for either side and even the folks running it state that it is only a computer program, and that it will not always be 100% effective. Hope this helps everyone!
Got a call from 000-000-0000 on my home phone (unlisted unpublished) today and then this evening on my cell phone. Interestingly enough both my land line and my cell phone are with the phone company, who I work for. I got the "your captain is calling". I'll be having a word with my company tomorrow morning because I think it's highly suspect that a telemarketing firm would get my unlisted unpublished number and my cell phone number.
called me but I never answer it since, i just don't answer a call specially If not registered in my cellphone , and search for this number and read all comments about this and wallah my instinct are right. They are just one of those...
This number calls my home phone, my cell phone & my husband's cell phone daily. We do not answer it and they do not leave any messages. All of the numbers they are calling are registered with the National Do Not Call List in Canada, so hopefully the calls will stop soon.
Why do they call?
they called about 6 at my house.
i didn't answer.
I have received a call from this number 0000000000 on my cell phone on a daily basis for the past couple of weeks. I never answer the call so I have no idea who is calling but it is very annoying.
I started getting calls fr5om this number a week ago, 11/15/08. Thet start at 8 am and go hourly until 9 pm. I was ignoring them then I answered and they hung up. There is never a response nor a message. I contacted AT&T and they said nothing short of changing my number would help. I also contacted the Arkansas Attorney Generals Office asking for help. I went online and filed a complaint with the "Do NOt Call" website. I am at a loss as what next to do. I have been un-plugging my phone on the week-ends and using my cell just to avoid these calls. HELP!!
Apparently, disgusting and worthless scumbags are everywhere, hiding behind the number 10000000000, and harrassing us with their useless crap. 2-3 calls per week on my cellphone! Of course it began to happen JUST HOURS after registered my numbers on the 'National Do Not Call Registry'(here in Canada)
I wish that I could crush them like a bug! Oh, wait. I take that back. I have no problem with bugs. Only with telemarketer scum. :)
Have called 4 times, in the past 2 hours. Once it did come up as 404-000-0000.
This number 000-000-0000 called me and my girlfriend within 1minute. First they called her than after her phone stopped ringing I received the phone call..we both received the phone call on our cel phones. This is so weird
Automated message stating MCS Credit Card Services.
Then I hung up.
Yeah, with this on the caller-id, it's got to be a scammy telemarketer. However, they did not want to talk to me and hung up. That's the way to make a sale!
It has gotten so bad from this 000-000-0000 and 999-999-9999 that I have shut my phone off. I am filing a report to the Attorney General of our state. I have saved all the Telemarket phone numbers for the past two months. They were twice as bad prior to the election. However, I paid cash for my phone, I pay my phone bill each month. I should not have to put up with 'unwanted calls' I'm sure the DNC list is just a front for "NOT DOING" anything for the American public, but is supposed to make us feel like they are!
An automated call from the "United Public Opinion Group", saying Press 1 to take a survey and collect 2 cruise tickets to the bahamas. I am in Canada, and on the Canadian DNC list.
Could this maybe be, because we ALL signed up for the Do Not Call list? Ever since I signed up for it, I have been getting weird calls from numbers I do not recognize. Just the past few days I have been getting 000-000-0000 calls on our phone and cell phone. I am pretty sure I signed up both of those numbers on the DNC list. It just seems a little weird to me, anyone else think this may be? I never answer to numbers I do not recognize.
This 10 digit zero number called my cell phone and then about five minutes later they called my boyfriend's cell phone!! Neither of us answered but I will if they call again. We have both registered these numbers on the Do Not Call list, so we'll see...
I received 20+ calls from this # throughout the day yesterday. I didn't pickup and no messages left. It's so annoying. This is my cell that they are calling.
Buying a Panasonic Tel. system Model KX-TG9341 (I bought one at Circut City for about $70.00) the system will allow you to block up to 20 # is the best solution to get red off these # and all other Ignorance that you don't want to answer there calls.
It is better than reporting them or take there word that "they will take you off there calling list".
Get calls from this number often. No one ever responds when we answer.
Today, 10/25/08, I have received 15 calls from this number 0000000000. I would like to know how to stop the calls without answering them.
Called from that number then I head some strange noises,then the line went dead....
Cruise. Masked numbers and no way of tracing them through our phone company I'm told. :(
Whenever I get a call from 000-000-0000, I have to reboot my internet connector (plug and unplug). It disrupts my internet frequency. Don't these people know that they are irritating and annoying me, after all that hassle who would give you the time of day??????? Kay
Called twice today asking for "the owner" and giving our business's name claiming we ordered pens from them two years ago (this company is less than a year old) and they overstocked our order and we are responsible for buying the remainder "cheaply". Background sounds like a large office-type telemarketing operation. Obviously a scam of some sort. Told them to bugger off and they keep calling back.
I have received numerous calls from this "no number" only to have no one on the other end. Today when I answered the call, it was a political call from Joe Biden's campaign. I told the person how annoyed I have been with the calls when I to have to stop whatever I was doing to answer a phone call with no one there. They wanted my vote....yea, right.
This is a scam. They promise you two tickets to the Bahamas and tell you someone will contact you within 48-72 hours if you completed their survey. Just hang up. A scam!
This number has been calling me for a couple months, about twice a week. Today they been calling every half hour on the half hour! >:(
I get calls from this number every day! Of course I don't answer. What happened to the Do Not Call List?
Marketing department (or subcontractor) for Chase Bank spoofing their caller ID to sell one of their credit card add-on 'protection' scams... err I mean 'schemes'. Despicable.
They called once and immediately hung up when my husband answered. They called again a few minutes later and he told them to stop calling back and go jump up a goats hiney. lol
This number is recorded message something like that: (horn)Hello this is your captain... is about winnig cruise. I never listen this message to the end.
I hear background noise when caller is supposed to leave message. No message is left. I have received one call per week x 3 weeks.
These guys have called 13 times already today. I'm sick of it. If I answer the phone, then these companies log that the phone was actually answered, and that just gets you more calls. They are calling about every 15-20 minutes. So annoying!!
A young sounding man said he was calling from TTR research and he asked if I would vote for Obama or McCain, then asked what was the most important political issue. Also asked who I would vote for state senator.
this number has been calling all evening - on the house phone and my cell. I wish they'd quit already.
I let my answer machine pick up the call but, no message was left.
the auto call said i had won a cruise for two with cabin ,meals and enterainment and would call me within 48to72 hrs to receive the boarding passes
this number calls constantly, occassionally I answer and NO ONE is ever on the other end; the same number called constantly around the time of the democratic convention, along with constant calls from that c*** Hilary and the blacks for obama including his wife. I assume these people are all working for liberal democrats whom I will never vote for.
We receive calls from this number on our home phone quite often. If we don't answer there is never a message left for us. If we do answer there is no one on the line. We are so tired of it and have reported it here and on the National Do Not Call Registry complaint form. We answer NO toll free calls!!!!!
I received a phone call from this number on 01/10/08. No one spoke when I answered.
This number has now called several times at any hour. Even when you pick up immediately the number rings - it immediately hangs up with the words "goodbye". There is never anyone at the end of the line. Our number is ex-directory.
It's the end of days stuff. I'm not religious but the economy, the wars, the greed, the everything stuff. It's timing.

If you really want to take this further, find out what links everyone that's receiving these calls. Find out the thing that everyone that gets these calls has in common. Might be interesting....
No one left a message and it showed as unknown caller.
they called and said they were advanced tech phone support and i said we dont use them for our phone service and they said they were going to give us a $250 rebate and i said no because my corporate office would handle all of that and the guy got raelly rude and said " you dont want a $250 dollar rebate" and i said " i cant make that decision" he said that he wanted to just check out address to make sure it was the same so i said "okay go ahead" and next thing i know some salesman i.e. the closer was trying to sell me on there services and i got pissed and told them this is a business and i dont appreciate there call. he got pissed at me and then hung up.
Lady with an Indian accent had my name, told me I'd won a prize. When I asked for the name of her company and phone number, she repeated that I'd won a trip. I told her I was on the do not call list and I wanted her phone number and name of company and she said she would put me on THEIR do not call list. I asked again for the name and number, and she just repeated her spiel. Irritating - 9 pm call.
I receive calls from this number, 000-000-0000 several times a day. I tried to block unidentified numbers from my phone but they still got thru. I found their web site through whocalled.us and went to thier site. they have a section where you can request to be taken off their list and leave a comment. then you must confirm your request when they send it to your email. I hope this works! sick of it.
No Caller ID. I figured it out after 53 years. Since I take all of my calls on cell anyway I walked around the house and turned the HOME phone ringers OFF on all the phones and I also turned the answering machine OFF. Even though I am on the DNC List, renewed every 5 years, I still get these BS phone calls. So, IF you never hear the phone ring, never answer unknown callers, and have a cell phone there it is...TURN OFF YOUR RINGERS and MACHINES!!!! Use the Caller ID to file the complaints and control your cell phone usage. Ahhhh, peace and quiet.
They have called my cell once today at around 9:30 and when i picked up, the other end hung up.
This website did not provide one to list a complaint when a call comes in "Unknown Name" and with no shown Ph# on Caller ID.
During late August and current as of this date (Sept. 18, '08) I get calls twice a day with no message left. If I answer, they just hang up. Once I was told it could be criminals calling just to see your "at-home/not at home schedule", so they can figure out the best time to buglarize your home!
I have answered a few times, but they just hang up. Nothing to sell, no political ads, just freakin' bizzare! Sounds vey suspicious. I will no longer answer and hope they go away in a month or two or...????!!!
When the number 0-000-000-0000 (not with the 1 in front like it should be for the U.S. I found this especially wierd), showed up on my i.d. i was naturally a little freaked out. My first thought was immediately that this was a call from another planet (too much scifi, I know.) Now i'm courious as to who is behind this phone conspiriacy. lol
i got this same number on my cell a few times usually just hit end but this time i picked up and it was a free cruise and wanted me to answer a few questions and hit the answers on my key pad ya right like that was gona happen so i hung up
this is a survey company...prolife
I got the call about two minutes ago. I picked up and there was silence. No answers to my hello. Very strange
This idiot (probably some gutless wonder) who is hiuding behind a worthless number called and did nat have the guts to say anything. I am on the DNC it is high time that this idiots use REAL numbers and ALL caller name MUST appear on caller ID THIS IS AN ELECTION YEAR LET CONGRESS KNOW HOW WE FEEL. LET'S STOP POLITICAL CALLS TOO!!!!!!!
Call numerous days every day. These calls just started this week. Very annoying.
"Your car warranty has expired, Please stay on the live for the next available representative." Then I do and ask them which car they are talking about and they ask me please state year and model and I say "you tell me". Then, they hang up. We get this call about 2 times a-day.
Allied Interstate, called to demand payment for the local hospital from some character I never heard of. I gave her a bunch of bogus info and she read me off a Social and an address and an employer. Good thing I'm not into stealing identities!!
Apparently the 000-000-0000 thing is some kind of blocker. That may be mentioned somewhere in this list, I haven't read them all yet
Just got a call from this number about 5 minutes ago, did not answer. Caller ID said Unknown Name (000-000-0000).
2 calls so far from 000-000-0000 - no message left first time; second time I answered and a woman addressed me by name. I asked who she was and with what company - she was something something Garcia "calling on behalf of Sedona Pines Resort." Informed her that we're on the Do Not Call List and that she has no business calling us and ended the call.
I phoned the number for Sedona Pines Resort which I found in the local phone book but the woman I reached claimed that the number was for an "information booth" (it's a time share property) and that they don't call people and that I should call Central Reservations & gave me the number. Interestingly this information woman sounded a lot like the woman who'd called me. This morning I called Central Reservations - they are mystified, don't ever make calls, simply coordinate reservations for a number of properties (hotel and time share). So dead end.
Reported to "donotcall.gov" and here - end of story unless they call again.
Caller ID said 000-000-0000.....did not answer and it left no message
When I get phone calls from this number it is blockbuster video. No one is on the line it is a recording that waits until I have said hello twice. The calls only come if movies I have rented are really late.
Message said it was Blockbuster, telling me that my movies were overdue and please return them. Sometimes when they call, the number is 999-999-9999.
FYI -- I have a friend who works for the federal govt in a high security job. When she calls me, the number that appears on my caller id as
000-000-0000 because it is a restricted number.
Everytime this shows up (several times everyday) I answer and they always say "You no espeaky spanish?" When I say no they hang up and call right back again.
I have been receiving calls from this number daily since 8/21/08. It is so annoying. The message on the answering machine is just a long beep. Yesterday there were 3-4 calls when I wasn't home about 2 hours apart. When i was home and answered the phone it was just silent. I have now blocked this number from my phone. So hopefully i won't get it anymore.
Nothing on the other end, same time two days in a row so I reported it to the telephone company as annoyance calls of a suspicious nature and they requested I begin activating call trace for every incident so that they may actively investigate.
have i really won a cruise?i must be mad to beleive them.but have been havin international and withhelp calls constantly for weeks but they hang up,drivin me mad lol
Got it from BPI polling service. They actually called four times.
i have received several calls from this number over the past two weeks. When I pick up there is no one there. When I try calling back, it obviously doesn't work.
Friday I had 12 hits on my home recorder with no messages left. On Sunday, I started receiving calls from 111-111-1111. I had received a warning that the 999-999-9999 and 111-111-1111 or 000-000-0000 may be scam calls and not to answer. I was so mad that the phone rang every 20 minutes with this same number, that I finally turned my radio as loud as it would go, with lots of raspy static and then answered the call and set the phone on the radio for about 20 minutes. I received one call after that--which I did not answer--no calls since.
We get these annoying calls all the time. Usually we just let it ring and don't pick up, but I couldn't take it anymore yesterday....it was a SUNDAY moring for heavens sake!! She asked for my husband by first name and then if I was his wife, she said she was calling from a program that places exchange students with homes in the US. How in the world do they know if they are calling a home of a child molester or bad person calling at random like that? Very Strang and creepy!!
000-000-0000 never says anything just hangs up after I tell them to quit calling & will call my Attorney General on them. But they still call everyday never talk or leave message when no one home.
Wikipedia says "Area code 000, while not a valid United States area code, is actually an "outbound-only" area code. This code may show up as part of a number on a caller id system when receiving telemarketer outbound calls or from VoIP services, such as Skype or Vonage." Cheap bastards using the internet to make untraceable calls. Twice today (Sunday)..grrrrrrrrrr
This number started calling me yesterday and called me about 15 times in 3 hours.I didn't pick up and they didn't leave a message.They have called 4 times today (on a sunday) they even called whilst I was writing this.I finally answered the phone and told them I wasn't interested and that they should stop calling us.We'll see if the get the message.
This is just unfounded! This company calls, you cannot call-back, it's just harassing. There should be some class-action law suits on behalf of the public.
This stupid number dials my house every single day at 9:10. Nobody is there when I pick up.
the caller sounds as though they are standing on a ship. You can hear the horn in the backround and other sounds like a computer saying you've got mail and a bell tone.
1-000-000-0000 calls our home on a regular basis. I am on the Do Not Call List, my number is unlisted, and, I never answer calls from people I do not know. They never leave a message. I wish they'd realize I refuse to answer their annoying calls.
I was called by this house hold servey ,caller Id Unknowen refrance bahamas cruise
It said "restricted" on my cell phone, but the number was 000-000-0000. i picked it up and it was an old guy yelling at me for stealing his newspaper. He kept calling over and over again after I repeatedly told him he had the wrong number and I had no idea what the fuck he was talking about. He was being really aggressive and threatening about it too. It was so freaking random... only my friends and family have my cell phone number.
nobody said anything.
I've had this 000000000 number call me 7 times today on my cell phone. I haven't answered it once, and they haven't left a message once.
People should go to jail over this type of bullshit.
Looking forward to a much needed vacation.
I live in Canada and I received calls from them for several weeks, one time by day 5 days by week. Today it was 2 phones calls...
I am receiving calls from this number, I live in Canada. They don't leave messages they just hang up.
000-000-0000...so blatently obvious to be a tele-marketer that i had to answer. something about a 10 question survey and I get two free cruise tix to the Bahamas. Obviously I didn't do the survey. Darn, now I won't get to cruise to the Bahamas!!! LOL!!!
When I first saw this number on my caller ID, I thought "Oh wow, I think God is trying to call me" as a joke. But I was still kinda freaked at the number, until I realized it must be a skype number.
I called 2 Radio Shack places and one said he did not know, but one said he did not sell it, but he had personally used it and it would make a random number if you did not have an account with this phone by computer place:
they can furnish people phone use on a computer and if the person does not have a number they will just make one up.
Someone told me that using things like this is how that people can call and not have any regular type of phone number. These weird people some may be legal, but some are getting by the government do not call by using this type of weird phone numbers.
I don't know that they used this exact site, but I am thinking that perhaps someone should report it to the government
do not call list anyway since this Skype site is in a foreign country.
When people call you illegally with weird numbers which you can not trace, then perhaps add in the comment area of the do not call complaint this info so that the government will do something about this since they are bound legally to do something about this.
Please post this in your efforts to end these cowards who hide their numbers from us who are supposed to be protected from them by the USA.
My stepdad's phone got called by this number earlier today. I checked it a couple hours ago after it rang and it had 2 missed calls, one from this number and another number. Weird thing is, I didn't hear the phone ring for the 10000000000 number when it called, though I could hear it the only other time it rang... No message was left, (of coarse) and they haven't called back.
I found a site:
they can furnish people phone use on a computer and if the person does not have a number they will just make one up.

They are the Pharmacy! They call me from other numbers too. I have asked repeatedly for them to stop calling and they still do!!! I have filed a complaint with the do not call registry many times and apparently they have done nothing about it!!
We have been getting calls on my cell 3 times today. I answer and no one is there.
what do we do it says we have to pay $59 american boarding taxes. Is this a scam please email me on email@example.com
I received an automated caller asking me various questions, they told me to go to www.householdsurvey.com, to get boarding passes for a free cruise to the Bahamas. I am 66 years old and I find this very distressing and dont know what it is all about.
offer me a all incusive cruise to the bahamas for a 10 question survey
This number is as good as getting
Asked for my wife by name,they said they were taking a survey on the presidential election. I told them I was on the no call list and wanted my number removed from their data base. The lady hung up on me.
Rec'd junk marketing ph call from 000-000-0000, on 7/29/08 at 8:19 pm. Did not answer as I recognized this stupid call.
These relentless, persistent bastards also called again on 7/30/08 at 9:17 am, and also at 9:29 am, did not answer again.
Incidentally where are all YOU stupid people who believe in the junk science of global warming, the no-drill anywhere crowd, the invested in complete surrender-and-defeat appeasement crowd to help avert us from a torrential rain of useless morons that call here? Here's a good place to put all those Marxist lefties from Bezerkly, CA to be productive, and become useful.
This 000 number started calling my house about a week ago (it is now 7/28). They started calling every 10 mins. this evening, I was so mad that I answered. They said that they were with Josh Olsen doing a short household survey. I told them we were not interested, on the DNC list, and to never call our house again. Hopefully that will work, but I doubt it! So irritating!
They call my number and want to sell me prescription drugs
Anytime this number shows up it is Blockbuster telling me I have items that are late...
Any call from 1-000-000-0000 or 000-000-0000 is a unlisted number. My home phone number is an unlisted number it it comes up as 1-000-000-0000 on my cellphone.
We received a call from this number and it was a recording for a household survey. They said i won a cruise for two to the bahamas and to go to this website to confirm my number. yeah right we won a cruise! They are pitiful!!
got a call 13.30 today 25th july 2008,automated call saying it was a survey and telling me i would recieve a cruise ,they will call me within 48to 72 hours with confirmation,also they will require 2 booking fees of 59 dollars when i book cruise ,will let you jnow if i hear anymore,obviously a scam!!
Sorry about the duplicate entry above!
They called us at 10:20pm last night. I couldn't understand much of what the guy said because he talked so fast and mumbled the words, but I did catch the words "research company" and "would you mind answering a few questions?". My answer to him was "What reputable company calls people this late at night?" My husband goes to bed very early because he has to get up extremely early, so it's very frustrating to get a call like this so late at night. The man apologized and then I hung up on him. We are on the DNC list so it's annoying to get a call like this at any time, but especially late at night. No legitimate company calls people at that time of night.
They called us at 10:20pm last night. I couldn't understand much of what the guy said because he talked so fast and mumbled, but I heard the words "research company" and "would you be willing to answer a few questions". I interrupted him and asked him "What reputable company would call people this late at night?" I told him that my husband goes to bed very early because he has to get up extremely early for his job, so we don't appreciate receiving calls that late -- or ever! He apologized and then I hung up on him. No legitimate company would call people that late at night.
I've been getting calls from 1 000 000 0000 (Vonage called id) for a couple of months now. It turns out to be ARC Cerebral Palsy (Colorado) just as ARC DonnyGee reported. When I answered a call, they identified themselves as CP and asked if I had anything to donate. I asked why they are hiding their number. The guy on the phone said that it wasn't under his control. Then I said to take me off their call list. He replied in a mocking/threating tone that "We WILL call you back" I followed by "Excuse me?" and he repeated "We WILL call you back" in the same tone. I called CP the next day. They said they contract out all the call center stuff to ARC. So I called ARC and asked to talk to a supervisor. None were available so I left a message. I was NOT called back. I called again the next day and actually talked with a supervisor. They said they would talk to the person who called me and that they would me off their call list. I'm not stupid so I don't expect they will actually do anything to rectify the problem. I just know I will never donate to them again.
Rec'd (2) very obvious complete junk marketing ph calls from 000-000-0000. Did not answer either one of them. Stupid, obnoxious, persistent telemarketers having to call twice in a row to push their crap.
Snake oil sleazy salesman akin to Al Bore (Gore) and the black messiah, Barack Husein Obama. How nice it'd be to take the sleazeball telemarketers, Al Bore, the black messiah with only 143 days of experience, all of Hollywood, and ship all these morons to France! A perfect fit.
Rec'd calls, and did not answer at 2:41 PM, and 2:43 PM. Persistent bastards!
Caller ID: 000-000-0000
Caller Type: Telemarketer
Geico Insurance, selling services
We have received three calls from this number at very inopportune times during the last two days. Each time no one is there. We are on the Do Not Call List and do not appreciate being bothered by this nuisance.
Being in a position to have the rest of my life to do what I please , I found it very entertaining to piss off telemarketeers by immediatly interupting their asinine sales pitch with one of my own sales pitches . I am currently using the "you need a new car" sales pitch and just go nuts with it . Somehow they don't need a new car and hang up on me !!
How rude !! I just wanted to waste their time just like they were going to do to me !!
Next time another tele-moron calls , just give them a sales pitch for ANYTHING !! Works wonders !! No charge for this idea , folks .
Tony, from Qwest. Asked for a call-back number and he told me it was 1-800-515-3578. Called that number and got "Twin Ports", who hung up on me, after saying that they do not have a do not call list...
I'm on the so called "DO NOT CALL" list and this number has called numerous times through out the day (yesterday 7/17/2008). Leaves no message, just keeps calling
i have had a few calls from this number but never anyone there this time there was a guy asked a couple of questions and said i have won two tickets for a cruise. at only $59 dollars each. all seems a bit dodgie to me!!
sick of this caller. The Feds should arrest the jerk and give him the chair
I've got a phone call with 000-000-0000 so I didn't answer at all.... We receive at least 7 junk phone call per days and it's the first time that I saw it I got only one time.
We got a call from these people the other evening. My husband answered and it was a recorded message saying, "stand by for an important message from AARP". He hung up immediately. We are on the Do Not Call list. Is this not considered telemarketing?
"This is you Captaon speaking"?????????????????????????????????????????
this is just one # they call from
why doesnt do not call work?
Receive several a day on my cell, but have not answered. The DNC states, "Placing your number on the National Do Not Call Registry will stop most telemarketing calls, but not all. Because of limitations in the jurisdiction of the FTC and FCC, calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities, and telephone surveyors would still be permitted." Looks like not much we can do about this other than ask they not call again.
I got this call on my cell today... It hangs up when I answer. I hope its not soemone trying to clone my phone.
This number called today just before 12 saying that they were household surveys.com and that I had been allocated an all expenses paid criuse for 2 to the Bahamas. I am involved with many online survey companies and so was less inclined to be bothered than I would normally when called and told I've got something for nothing, but I must admit I do believe there is no such thing as a free lunch. I'll let you know what happens next if they call again.
got a call today 2 say i won a cruise for a few questions asked
The questions that was asked was only setting someone up for all kinds of solicitation calls.
I have just had a chat with the Captain of my cruise ship to Bahamas. I blame Internet Phone Calls
it said this is your captin calling you have won an all expense paid cruise.like i am going to fall for that won nothing is FREE.
i recieved the call the message was the same as every bodys esle automated system asked 10 irrevelant questions such as my age group ,rent or own, male or female etc. then a guy p/u and verifys telephone #and zip code then another message talking about the if i wanted to recieve message from home land security and i chose opion 1 to to not recieve info and the call ended.
I've gotten 23 calls from 1-000-000-0000 in the last week. My phone company says that anonymous call blocker can't prevent them, they have a device to switch numbers (cover their number) from their end.
This number calls my phone all hours of the day and I work swing shift. They ask for me but then sometimes they put me on hold and never come back. I want it to stop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111
The number on my phone was 808-457-8285. The free cruise offer, the 10 questions, etc.
Received a call - recorded message for a survey - receive 2 boarding passes for a bahamas cruise (all inclusive for 2). Answered 10 questions, nothing invasive and an operator came on to say an agent would contact me within the next 72 hours - told to go to www.householdsurvey.com - couldn't find the site
they said i was picked to do a random household survey and if i answered and went to their website i had won a fully paid trip to nassau, bahamas for two good for 18 months boarding passes for 3 all meals . cabin and shows. then another guy got on to verify and he was yalking about whether we had a security system and it was ours free also, free installation and free system, Something fishy, cant find the web site nothing but complaints for telemarketing, i did het a phone number though it is 1-808-457-8285. BEWARE.
They might be staking out houses that dont have sec. or i think its a big scam, i have only had yhe number a week. WEIRD
I got a call and answered their questions, which did not give away who I was and was told to go to householdsurvey.com, but there is no such thing.
They have left me messages saying that they are from USAA (one said USA) Federal Savings Bank. I did call USAA because I do belong to them and asked them what they needed from me. They said that no one has been looking for me. I reported the number that was left on my message system 800-227-1762 and in the process of reporting the number to the FCC. I did call the number one time over the weekend, making sure I masked my number to unknown. A lady (surprised) answerd first with just hello, then I asked who I was calling, she stated USAA Federal Savings Bank. All of this with phones ringing in the background. Sure sounds like a scam, will call later to see if they are still up and running. According to regulations, spoofing phones is against the law. Being in the Tech field, I know better than to answer this type of call!! But I do want to have some fun with them and get some info.
the number that called was 8084578285- if you answered 10 simple questions you are given 2 free boarding passes to tht bahamas, includes all meals, entertainment, taxes,etc on cruise ship. they then want you to listen to sales pitch for home security system. did not have phone with caller id on punched *69 to get number
i received a call; they said i won 2 free tickets on a cruise and that i should log into the www.householdsurvey.com.
after looking at this i think now i must have been charged at a premium rate without even knowing it.
This number is used by various collection offices kind of funny if you don't answer for their number why would you answer this crazy number,Also in the Saint louis are it is used by Blockbuster to tell you to return stuff
I recieved 5 calls from this number, +0000000000 in the last seven days on my mobile phone and have answered only once. When I did so there was nobody on the line. Having read many of the messages on this website I can only guess that this is somesort of money grabbing scam or something like that where when you answer, it automatically charges you. I also notice that most of the posts of this happening to people are based in America, and wonder how many people other than me in the UK have recieved one of these calls.
The person ask me to take a quick survey for a chance to win Nasa trip so I took it.Like I answered about 6 or 7 ?'s
then it tolf me to go to this web sight .so I hung up and went to this sight.
When I answered the call, they said it was a research firm and they wanted to do a telephone survey. When I asked them to place us on the DO NOT CALL list, they said they were a research firm and did not have that type of list. How irritating!
This is one that leaves me crazy!
We keep getting these calls and nobody answers them because we dont know the #. It looks STRANGE. Also, when i picked up the phone when they called, they hung up without saying any thing for 10 seconds. So ignore the call no matter how annoying it gets.
called and left threatening message for me, to my company. vulgar, white female
these clowns have called at LEAST 3-4 times a day for the past week. today, 3 times in 3 hours. Their phone number is total genius, right?? How legitimate and professional... To everyone sick of their harassment, REPORT THEM to ftc.donotcall.gov. doesn't matter if they are "research" or other supposedly exempt groups, more than 3 calls in a few hours constitutes harassment, can be reported and WILL be dealt with eventually..
I have found, "the hard way", that if you log on to certain web-sites, that any information you input is sold to persons, companies, scam artists, etc., whom ever is willing to pay the asking price. Sometimes, just browsing gives them all they need. Also, when you do answer the phone, you need to ask questions before answering theirs. Learn what questions to ask. Teach everyone in your household what to say! A friend at my bank, told me my personal information was a commodity...it was up for sale if I didn't protect it! Stay ahead of them. Remember telling lies is how they make money. Be smart, if a number doesn't show on the ID, that is a red flag. They are already hiding something. Threaten them with legal action when the calls first start. Keep a record of the calls. If it seems legitamate tell them to mail you the information. This way you have a way to track them. PROTECT YOURSELVES!
Unknown Caller, when answered,caller hangs up. Repeated phone calls
I am getting calls from this number too, and there is no one there when I answer. Wondering if my number has been entered into some automated system- you think they'd have some respect. It is Sunday...
After 3 calls earlier which I didn't answer, and after looking up reports here, I decided to answer. Like other reports, the caller asked for me by first name, and wanted to know who I planned on voting for in the upcoming election. I asked what company was calling, and she said a privately owned call center. I asked if she knew the name, and she said no. I said "you mean you don't know who you're working for?" and she said no ma'am. I asked if the company complied with DNC and she informed me political calls didn't fall under DNC, but that she would be glad to take my name off of their list if I wished. Of course I said please do. She told me it would take thirty days.
Received two calls today that were from a machine. On the second call, the recorded message didn't start until I said "hello." I waited ten seconds before speaking. Recording stated call was from Steve Sunders, he was sorry he missed me, and to press one if I would like him to call back. He mentioned important information about an annuity. This is an automated telemarketer trying to sell something. whocalled.us needs a method to input calls when we don't know the number. So we know if this scammer is calling by himself with a PC, or a boiler room calling thousabds of people an hour. I just used 000... in case the name and product hit for anyone searching.
One thing is for certain: 000-000-0000 is not one unique telespammer. It's probably the default config for the same predictive dialer hardware/software combo used by all the telejunkers listed here.
Today, I get 4 calls in-a-row with the same M.O. as StarTec Comms, who fake their caller ID number as "90754" (http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/90754) and most probably also fake CID with www.whocalled.us 2008-05-29 18:09:27, 2008-05-29 18:09:36, 2008-05-29 18:09:43 and 2008-05-29 18:09:51 ET.
calls & never leaves message.
This number showed up on my cell phone. I didn't answer and they didn't leave a message.
Asked me to answer 10 survey questions and I would win 2 tickets for a cruise. I think its a sad joke. They went on to try to get me to sign up for a home security system. I usually never answer these calls but today I did. This should not be aloud to continue!
This was another message from the same recorded voice I've heard a dozen times this month, offering a discounted interest rate on my credit card. Wasting my time!!!!
See also www.whocalled.us where incoming CID is 000-000-0000 but callback number is for somewhere else.
Caller ID of Unknown Caller 000-000-0000 is truely annoying. I have Time Warner Digital phone and they said they cannot block individual numbers yet. I requested them to make that a feature. This has got to be illegal.
Also, with Time Warner you can block "Unknown Caller" incoming calls by *77 and *87 to deactivate.
I am sure other digital phone companies has this feature also.
I am not sure this works yet, I just found it out.
They called me saying "Go to Canadian Tire within 20 minutes, failure to comply will result in Erasure"
Is that a death threat?
I say when we find out who's really calling, then we call them back and just keep the meter running on there dime! From the look of all these posts it could be any one of these jerks wanting a piece of your wallet. Again good ole American Capitalism, when there is a dime to be had someone is out to take it from you, and skirt the law while doing it! We need better consumer protection from these preditors. A law is needed to require these jerks to transmit who's calling and the number called from so you know it's a legit caller. Everything seems to be in there favor and they are getting away with it. When I block you, what do you think I'm telling you? Get a freaking clue you morons. It means do call me any more! Wait it must be one of Hillery's campain folks dailing for dollars, wanting me to donate to her worthy cause of health care for those who don't want to work, but want me to pay for it. Get a job is what I say then you will have healthcare!
Many calls. Sometimes three in one day.
WTF... It's some ass wipe spoofing your caller ID! You can almost bet it
I get a call from this number on a weekly basis. When I answer, it's just dead air.
Recently got one from 999-999-9999 as well.
000-000-0000 called me it was the dea using some shady program to hide there number the man thats who it is
This number has been calling almost hourly today from 8:00am and most recently 8:40pm. We answer...they say nothing...and then it disconnects. Help!!!
This number calls many times a week and it's a recording stating it is my captain calling offering me a free trip to nasau free of charge by asking me a couple stupid questions. NOTHING IS FREE.
i recieved a phone call to answer 10 questions, apon answering said 10 questions
there would be a trip to the bahamas
May 6, 2008
This has been happening for over 2 weeks now.
Caller I.D. says Unknown Number. I answer the phone and no one is there. I turn on the "Call Me Not" machine where they are instructed to press 1 to ring thru. They ring thru but refuse to say anything. This is 3-4 times a day, each and every day. Once, I got them to speak and they were telling me how to complete my degree on-line. Would not state who they represent.
The United States should make it illegal to call anyone and by some means, block the phone number and name of the caller. This is pure and simple greed and harassment.
The DO NOT CALL LIST does not stop this form of harassment.
They call about 10 times a day. When I do answer, there is nothing. They never leave a message.
Called several (at least 6 times) today starting at 8:10 AM. Finally picked up and a woman named Danielle asked to speak to someone whom I did not recognize. She tried to sound like a friend asking if I knew the person she was asking for. She then proceeded to find out how long I had been at my current phone number and wanted to make sure that there was absolutely no one by that name at this number she called. Never gave me the company she worked for but according to you guys on this post it sounds like debt collection to me.
I received a recorded call that stated, "do to federal law we cannot disclose the nature of this call, please press any number to be connected." Upon pressing any number, you are put on hold and recording tells you that someone will be with you shortly. You then are asked to leave a messege on a voice mail, I believe the recording calls them inbound calls. I did not leave a message, I hung up! I'm assuming I will hear from it again.

Remove telephone number from Vernon Directory

I had the (000)-000-0000 show up on my cell and wouldn't answer it, they left voicemail and it's GMAC.
I missed a call from 000-000-0000 (on my cell) and they left a voicemail: The woman identified herself as Katie Rowland (I think that's what her last name was) and said she was looking for me, but used my maiden name, which I have not used for over a year. She didn't say what company she was with, but said it was urgent that I call her back at 866-862-2788 ext 3883. But when I called this number back from my work phone, all it does is ring and no one answers. It's very unusual...and annoying.
This call came from Mutual Consolidated Savings aka MCS Programs.
Call them back at 1 888 786 6201
or visit their website at www.MCSPrograms.com
this number just called me
and said my name and called me a slut....
they said "kayla your a slut"
It was a 10 question survey for marketing purposes and it was automated. So you answer by pushing the buttons. Once it's done they tell you you get free boarding passes for a cruise, all you have to do is go to householdsurvey.com - no such thing- and once registered you pay $57 per person for some US travel fee or something.
I have received this call twice on my cell phone and missed both of them. I will only have had my cell phone for a month this friday. Why bother if I don't answer the first time take the hint and don't call back. But if they do its "Game On" they won the coin toss and elected to receive.
Protect your PII (Personal Identifiable Information).
This number started showing up in the call log, twice per day every day. They seem to be working through different times of day to get an answer. I did answer the call once -- no response from the caller.
Recorded message about burial insurance.
They called yesterday but I didn't answer. They called again today, so I answered and it was Geico with a courtesy call letting me know that they renewed my policy, and in turn it lowered my rates! WooHoo! I'll take this kind of call any day ;) (I logged into my Geico account and checked, it was legit, they DID lower my rates!)
reply if you are AT&T customer or cingular customer... i guess AT&T is doing this to eat up your last remaining minutes so that you get charged on your cell phone bil if it goes beyond your monthly alloted mintues... it is all money.. thing
We received a call from 1-000-000-0000 and when i answered Hello, they replyed with "I'm sorry, that is the incorrect answer" and promted us to press a number to be transfered to someone to talk to, I hung up at that point.
They play a message saying a friend provided your number from Wal-Mart or other large stores. Try to sell a vacation "promotion". Really a time-share.
I too receive regular calls with a recorded message from 'Mimi' wanting me to lower my credit card interest rate. The caller ID shows "00000" as the number. I have attempted to be taken off their caller list but no luck. Now I simply hang up every time I hear the message.
they call our house like 6 times a day....we never answer but its getting sooo annoying
This number calls us a few times a week, I really wanted to find out who these people were. I tried to block the phone number but my service won't allow a number like that to be blocked.
i recieved a call and it was an survey with an offer of trip 2 hawaii and cruise.
Household survey, com suppossedly won a trip by taking survey.
Calls from this # many times a day. Silence on the line when answered. Very annoying. Having them traced and have made reports to FCC and anywhere I can. I am on the do not call list.
They call all the time, but I have blocked the number so the phone doesn't ring. I doubt it is the same company. I imagine many jerk telemarketers spoof all zeros.
these people call at least 4 times a day, leave no messages, hang up, or just call and call all night long....the very least amount of calls in one day was 4...with a max of 27...
Blockbuster comes up as all zeros when their automated number calls about an overdue movie or game. i know, they just called.
000-000-0000 is associated with phone number 608-201-1868 and man by the name of John. I got the unlocked number when this number came through and I went off by answering what the person on the other end could and should have been doing sexually to their mother. I also reported the incident with this number over to verizon as this is a no no with fcc rules.
first time i remember 00000000000 calling, i don't much care
swine have been told not to call, but they still are it's time for some $
swines don't leave msgs, seems legit to me (yah right)
swines dont leave msgs, seems legit to me yah right
They keep calling. I am at work, they called my desk phone, I did not answer and seconds later my cell phone rang and it was them. They had to have got this information from some sort of app I filled out recently.
i am sick of these people, they call my cell phone constantly and never say anything. i tried re dial and of course it doesn't work. i wish the government would do something about companies using phony fricking numbers
Calls two or three times a day...do not answer. Annoying because the message answering machine sounds as if the phone is off the hook with a beep beep beep sound. I have to press stop. If I weren't home, I think it might go on for sometime. I'm on DNC...
It should be illegal to have the zero's as a working phone number.
This number calls my house daily, sometimes hours a part.I never answer it. They never leave a message. This is getting to be a pain in the butt.
I'M TRING TO FIND OUT IT THIS A PANK CALL. IF IT IS THEY NEED TO FIND SOMETHING ELSE TO DO WITH THERE TIME CAUSE MINE IS VAUABLE.
this number called my cell phone at least 4 times in the past week
Just got this call... They left an automated message, but the beginning was cut off... I haven't listened again, but it was something about funeral home services or something, haha... There was a request to press a number from a list of options read off... But I don't remember the specifics...
Any telemarketing or political group (or any scumbag)with the knowhow can have this number show up on caller IDs. The reason, many caller IDs like mine will not permit calls to get through that don't show a number or show up as only unknown, out of area, or even 800 numbers. When I do get a call from a party that does show a number, even 000-000-0000 my phone will ring. This time of year it happened to be a republican survey group. I did program that number into my caller Id & they will never get through again. If you want to spend a onetime cost of around $100.00 and do away with all these calls, check out the "Caller ID manager" on the web. Best money I ever spent!
I have had this call for the first time 1-000-000-0000, I always heard this was a call from heaven? pretty scary I know, has anyone else ever heard this? I tried calling the number back, but there is no such number. How can we track who is calling from this number?
Agressive telemarketer from Discover Network (as in the Discover card, he said) Merchant's Health Plan. REFUSED a dozen times to provide a phone number --said a number was on packet they could mail if they get my identity / delivery info. Refused to even give a CITY. This went on for a long time. So-called manager ALSO DENIED PHONE NUMBER KNOWLEDGE and REFUSED TO DISCLOSE CITY! Asked twenty times, eventually shouting and he kept dodging. Hope to get some of this onto YouTube someday. Hey Discover, is THIS how you recruit new business? I'll specifically AVOID DISCOVER thanks to this technique. Number is on National Do Not Call. Told the guys. They persist.
ONCE A MONTH I GET A CALL ,THAT SHOWS "NO NUMBER" IN CALLER ID. THEY LEAVE A MESSAGE EACH TIME IN SPANISH. TO PAY MY COMCAST BILL. THAT IS THE ONLY WORD I RECONIZE. IM NOT SPANISH NOR DO I SPEAK OR UNDERSTAND IT. COMCAST SAIDS THEY DO NOT CALL ME IN SPANISH. AND THEY ARE NOT CALLING ME AT ALL. THEY DO NOT KNOW WHERE THE CALLS ARE COMING FROM.."HELP"!
I just recieved the phone call from them and then was told to go to their website to identify that my information is correct. they are promising a cruise to honolulu. should i be worried?
Calls daily, have no idea who this is.
I got the first call from this number in late February. Now they are "regulars". I never pick the phone up and they never leave a message.
This number calls my cell phone and work phone back to back everyday around 9am. I never answer it.
Automated messages asks if your vehicles has been fixed? press 1 for no and 2 for yes. Must be some scam that the do not call list can address; Liberty is = to license or freedom.
This number called our home several times in the past months. We've just been putting our fax machine on for them. Obviously they dont get the point. Yesterday morning, since I am still adjusting to the time change, I was sleeping (on top of that I work nights at my job). I answered the phone. They asked for my husband. I told them he was unavailible and they said when would he be. I told them not at 8 in the morning. The lady got quite rude and told me it was time to get up. I asked for her name and by then she had hung up the phone on their end. I CANNOT wait for the next time they call and I answer. I will be speaking to a supervisor. I do not appreciate people calling my home, telemarketers/survey at 8 in the morning while I'm recovering from a night shift!
Hyundai Motors Calling to remind that a payment was past due. Asked why the caller ID did not show anything. They said they don't know why it shows all zeros. How do you buy all zero's in your caller id? Guess the phone companies make that an option if you want to mask your phone number.
Actually, it might be people calling from their computers. My parents use an internet phone line to call our relatives in China, and the number comes up as 000-000-0000. So, it might actually be people you guys know, trying to prank you from their computer lines.
When ever Blockbuster's automated system calls me to remind me of a movie rental that is about to go overdue, the number shows up as 000-000-0000.
This # 000-000-0000 called my house and a recording said 'This is your captain speaking. You can win two passes for a cruise to Nassau ,Bahamas by completing the following survey'. I find it quite annoying that these numbers will call my house. How do I stop them?
This is a robo caller that tells me to "Please hold for an important message". then I got a live woman by the name of Pat Hamestron who works for Allied Interstate. She claimed she was calling about a debt, one that I told her I didn't owe, she left a different number to call should I "recall" anything. 888-253-3108 ext 4933
I've been getting calls on my cell phone from this numbers 2x a day for a week now. Each time, they say it's GMAC (which I believe it is) and they ask for the same person. I explain, each time, that I have had the phone number for over 5 years and ask them to remove my number from that person's record in their database. Today, I finally asked to speak to a supervisor, who promised that the calls would cease - we will see tomorrow!
see previous note on www.householdsurvey.com. Also read up on martinsmusing.blogspot.com on bloggers comments on this telemarketer.
National Research Group see www.householdsurvey.com who called us and asked us 7 questions using automated touchpad service. After i answered the 7 questions on their survey they gave me two tickets for a cruise to Nassau, Bahamas. They said dont say its free for government regulations.
I have to get to Miami, Florida to board the Empress Cruise Ship, and have pay $59.00 for each ticket for goverment fees.
This just means that the call is originating from a VPN service. It's used as a cost containment measure by several corporations, including the one I work for. It's prized by telemarketers, by large corporate interests that make a gazillion long distance calls.
That's all. No great mystery.
i recived this call on my cell phone caller id 0000000000 and i notice they were callin at home too
Me again. Finally after 4 phone calls today from this fake number there was actually a person on the other end of the line. This person stated that they were conducting a "one questions survey" and wanted to know if the primary election was being held today who would I vote for. They are kidding me right, who is stupid enough to answer this question over the phone??? My comment to this person was, "I vote behind a closed curtain for a reason, hint SECRET BALLOT." I asked them to remove me from their call list and was told that since they had already spoken to me then I would not receive another call!! Funny, how I do not believe that in the least.
This number is totally driving me CRAZY!! It just keeps calling and calling and there is either no one on the other end or it hangs up. After reading the comments here, I am more confused then ever since we do not have a Blockbuster, I am not a Republican, I do not have Verison or Bell South, etc. AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!
Something needs to be done with these idiots.
They call at least 4 times a day...never leaving a message.
Almost daily, but no message left.
This number calls me once a week to remind me to return rented movies at Blockbuster. The number does at least leave a message.
Just got a call from this number. Do these idiot telemarketing companies really think people are going to answer their phones when they place such stupid things, like a number such as 000-000-0000, on the caller ID?? I never answer, I just hit the talk button and them immediately hit the end button. I figure that if it was a legit call then these companies would have the balls to list their correct name and phone number on the caller IDs!!!!
I received 8 calls every 30 minutes from what showed up in my caller ID as 0000000000.
Who the heck has this kind of number? I didn't answer any of the calls. The 9th time that this number called in, they left a message.
It was a message from - - - VERIZON!!!
They were confirming the set up of my new service.
I say - get over it Verizon - who the heck do you think you are? Freaking people out with an incognito number??
We may not love you as much as VONAGE, but get over it. Display your name & be proud!!!
More desperados: 2008-02-20 17:11:59, 17:12:27 and 17:12:55 ET. Attempts to call right back after being auto-shunted to an OOS number (exactly 28secs in between each attempt).
My guess is that it's all different telejunkers using the same telespamming software/hardware that has the default configuration as 000-000-0000 as the outbound number for the PRI.
This number has been texting me about Penis pills for 2 weeks now non stop. I want this dude to get a life.
We been getting them 5-6 times a week SAys want to verify my husbands birthday Says has his medical records My hubands reponse is "you tell me the date i tell you if it correct": they hang up.. Today said he had his medical records hubby said "why you have my medical records/ I don,t have yours" they hung up.I told them one day I was reporting this to police they said go ahead.To us it is someone trying to get your information so tell them nothing.
Got a automated voice message from the captain, win 2 free cruise tickets, do a survey.
Imperial Magesty Cruise Lines
read on other posts, people that participated in survey, gave info, never got anything.
read that they are also connected with Ramada Plaza Resorts
They called and it was an automated system calling about some cruise, but the phone WOULD NOT HANG UP until the call was finished.
This number called me yesterday,and I didn't pick it up. My answering machine picked up, and then this automated message about credit card stuff came on and kept on repeating. It's so annoying!
Twelve calls from these nitwits in the space of an hour. Never a message, just a few rings and then click
I found out that some companies can input a number on a dailer type machine that generates this number and that some companies can call using this as a calling phone number. Also when you call some 800, and the like, numbers and you think your number is blocked, it's not, to most 800 and such numbers.
I tend to get a lot of unknown callers looking for someone who used to have my number so I didn't answer, but this is the first time I've seen an unknown caller with the TN: 000-000-0000. They hung up after only 2 rings, so my answering machine didn't pick up.
Could it be Blockbuster?
Have received this call 5 times today on my cell phone - no one on the other line... it's getting very annoying.
This number has been calling me for at least two weeks now...the calls average to about 4 times a day...and it is on my cell phone! I never pick it up...But it is getting very annoying. I just put my cell # on the DNC list about a month ago so I will give them a few more days to annoy me but then it has to stop.
It was Death calling. Right after I answered the phone, I DIED.
WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T ANSWER THIS NUMBER! YOU WILL BE SORRY!
Recorded message from 'Mimi' wanting me to lower my credit card interest rate.
Press 1 to speak to an operator to lower my rate, press 2 to remove from call list.
I've pressed 2 every time they've called - obviously they don't remove you from the list!
This time I pressed 1 - got a live male who asked if I wanted to lower my interest rate. I told him 'No - I've continually pressed 2 to be removed from the call list" He interrupts with 'Sorry, goodbye' and hung up on me!
Out of area 1-000-000-0000. I redialed the number and after several rings it said the call could not be completed. I thought legitimate numbers had to show up.
This number is clearly bogus, and is a result of either an error somewhere along the line (deliberately caused, of course) or outright spoofing of caller ID information by the caller. This number could come up for any number of different organizations using these techniques. Though, in extremely rare cases, this could be a legitimate error, however the overwhelming likelihood rests on the intent to deliberately hide the caller's identity.
It's from a Republican survey group... Told them to add me to the not call list...
This number has called +8 times already!
Just now I picked up and said, "Hello?" but no one said anything and then hung up after twenty seconds!
I don't know what's going on, they call and call and call but never leave a message...
Calls started 1-19-2008, and come every other day. The last call, they asked for a woman leading me to believe it was about bill collections. I told them no one lives here by that name and I asked them to please remove my number from the calling list.
The person on other line claimed to look in the computer for my number and said it was not there and told me to get the next caller to remove the number; starting the same vicious cycle. Today 1-27-2008 they called 3 times. HOW DO WE GET THESE ANNOYING CALLS TO STOP?
Caller ID: 877-290-8891
Caller Type: Collection Agency
"Congratulations! You've won a cruise for two to the Caribbean! Press 1 for more information!" I hung up.
In order to get removed from their calling list permanantly, you need to call 720-217-9072 and ask for Katie. She will help you.
I WANT TO KNOW WHO IS HARASSING MY HUSBAND BLIND AND MENTALLY ILL HERE WITH
THIS ILLEGAL CALLS FROM 000-000-0000 FROM DEBT COLLECTORS I READ IN THE FORUM.
I CALL FROM MY SKYPE 000-000-0000 AND THE SKYPE ASK ME WITH COUNTRY I WANT TO CALL?!!!?
THEY CALL FROM MANY COMPANIES AND I THINK IS ILLEGAL IT.

These people should give out their home phone numbers so we, the people they bother at all hours, can call them at home and bug the heck out of them! Please let me know where I can start my lawsuit againt these jerks!
one call, didnt answer.
calls 2 times a day
i got a call and it started shouting profanity at me and saying digusting sexual comments
It seems everyone here has the same issue. What concerns me why isn't anything been done.? Just to keep posting on here seems a waste of time because everyone has the same issue and nothing is being done. We all know by now that the phone number 000-000-0000 is a bunch of bull. What l did and is the best thing. I programmed my caller ID with a prerecorded messaged telling them to kiss off. I read one time in a consumer book someone put out it said do this if you want telemarketers to stop calling. What they suggested is the following. (This only works if there is someone on the line). When these people start giving you their pitch say to them the following and l guarantee you they will not call back. ASK THEM WHAT COLOR UNDERWEAR THEY ARE WEARING. It is as simple as that. I have had a 95% hang up rate and no more return calls. It may sound crazy but it works think about it. It will work.
I have been pummeled by jerks and stupid people. In each instance I logged all of the calls, but finally got to posting it today, mid-morning. Did not answer, and let it dump into voice jail, hoping these persistent bastards would get the idea.
PHONE CALL LOG FOR THURSDAY, JAN. 10TH, 2008. All times shown in C.S.T.
The number called today at 845 pm, i answered and a lady asked for me by name...I told her I was not here and asked if they would like to leave a message, she just told me to call 800-404-9026, this is a debt collection agency, never got the name!!
Called three times in about 5 minutes---did not answer
mike on 10-26-06 is right on. he said someone may be concealing their number to rob you when you're not home. and when i get these calls i wonder if it's eavesdropping.
i'm not as lucky as you all, because i just get unavailable, no answering machine message either. so it could be anyone of those 818 calls on that who called list up there.
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!
My husband and I have been harrassed by this number a lot lately. I saw something on 20/20 that this particular number had something to do with upcoming elections and being harassed by it.
Rec'd ph call from 000-000-0000 at 10:10 am, C.S.T., got to logging it now.
Folks, when you see numbers of this sort, don't even bother wasting your time. There are nothing but insidious dirt-bags concealing their true identity at the other end.
Google has virtually an endless plethora of complaint listings if you care to check:
I get this number whenever I am late with my movies at Blockbuster. Its a poor quality recording telling me that I'm late with my movies.
i knew better not to answer this when i saw the display on my cell phone and received others that looked like random numbers........i've put my cell and home #s on the "do not call list" --why do we even bother? can someone please put a stop to this! it's a waste of my minutes!
Caller ID says: out of area 1-000-000-0000. I have gotten a few ideas on how to handle them next time, from others posting. Thanks to all of you. Going to put my whistle around my neck! After getting some information from the caller, will be using it.
if they say your going to die, it's when somebody knows your phone number, enters it in on a website, and sends you a call. otherwise its business people. my dad answered it once and it was financial stuff.
Hey guys I just got this number and a did a little research... looks like it might be a VOIP number (it's free effectively if you don't go with vonage which would be why telejerks might be starting to use it).
A little research so it could be off.
Never Answering the Call,just DELETE it...
they are scamers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
they said I will receive 60 off next phone bill just to confirm my personal info!!!
NEVER PASS OVER THE PHONE!
SCAMS TO STEAL YOUR INFO!
They call 5x a day BE AWARE!!! When I pick up I said: I will file a report on National do not call list stop calling!!!!!
I was in a car with my two of my friends and my phone began to ring and it showed up all 0's. This was the first time i ever saw that so i decided to answer and when i did it some man wispered and said you are going to die, then i threw my phone. when i tried to call it back and it didnt work.
Obviously not a valid phone number. Telemarketers call and disguise their numbers with this.
My ex-fiance is stalking me for over 2 1/2 years.This # was the first on my cell records he started with. He has assaulted me. He uses other numbers also which aren't valid or pay phones. He has even left screaming messages just last night. He is going to kill me and the police won't do anything.
keep getting calls from these morons. I told them to suck my dick. Let's see if they call again.
A survey company, asking about 1-800-flowers and fruit baskets....if I have purchased flowers in the past 12 months and whom did I purchase from. Asked generic age range questions, asked household income (I refused to answer that), I talked to him for 13 min. Actually very polite surveyor. Calling from Manhattan, NY. Did not try to sell anything, only needed stats. No big deal.
I've receive alot of phone calls from this number. The weird thing is that they called me on my cell. Also won't leave a message when I refuse to pick up the calls. It's so annoying because I get at least two of these calls per day.

This company keeps calling. Reps hang up when "Do Not Call is brought up". Illegally get around caller ID by leaving number as 000-000-0000.
They call me and then there's a voice that says "goodbye".
Got these calls sporadically over the past two months, never more than once a day. I finally relented and answered. It was Philip Morris Company wanting me to answer a survey about cigarette tax increases. I told them I didn't smoke. Hopefully they don't call back again.
Asked the phone the person on the other end was me to take a short survey. Told them no.
The voice was a mans voice in a creepy whisper that said "I will come to you in seven days."
when i flipped my phone open i disconnected right away i didn't try nor want to speak to whoever was on the line. when i've gotten other calls like this from other numbers i've had a verbal argument with the caller.
Very annoying automating message, option for do not call
They are calling my elderly grandparents and they have had health problems. I tell them to check their caller id.
This cally is really annoying and gets on my nerves do to it calling almost everyday.
I want to know who these people are, this is freaking me out.
Yesterday, I emphatically and colorfully explained that calls from murderous purveyors of poison are unwelcome, and detailed the complimentary yet rather excruciatingly painful lungectomy that I would happily perform by hand, anesthesia-free, for the next caller from their vile cesspool.
Today, they called again. Let the hunt begin.
Blockbuster called...I have late movies.
mine was blockbusters voice recording telling me to take back movie or i would be fully charged for them
Picked up a call from this number a minute ago. Roughly 7 seconds after I said "hello", a male voice asked "Is this [full name]?". Stupidly, I responded "yes" and he promptly hung up. Called my cell provider and they couldn't tell me anything about the number (to be fair, the guy I spoke to with my provider sounded half asleep).
I've found that Blockbuster calls for overdue movies usually show as this number.
called today, asked for my husband by name. Put husband on, man had heavy accent, hard to understand but something about wanting to do a $5000 money transfer. When asked "for what purpose" the man was just unitelligable. Finally said "not interested" and hung up.
I got a call from 1-000-000-0000 and it was the Blockbuster overdue rental reminder. Fair enough.
This number has been calling my house now and then for the past several months and we never answer the call with it seeming so suspicious and having a Caller ID of "*Reveal Unknown" each time. The most recent call came this past Saturday at 10:31 PM. It wasn't answered again.
You have to wonder who would call someone with a 000-000-0000 phone number after 9:00 PM, especially on a Saturday. People I know certainly would not do this. I also know that most legitimate telemarketing, market research, bill and debt collection companies would not be stupid enough to be caught doing this. Which leads me to think its some kind of sleazy fly-by-the-night company or scammer doing this, which if they are a company, they should know it is illegal as you are not to call people at times they consider inconvenient (before 8:00 AM and after 9:00 PM is the standard). In any case, they should not expect the call to be answered.
One more thing: I'm surprised this number isn't the most commented on, giving the multiple sources that use the number.
I just received a call from the phone number (000)000-0000 and it was a mexican sounding male, (the accent sounded fake) asking questions about an ISP.
I had been getting calls from this number for many days and I was never at myphone when they called. They then called when I was at my phone and here was our conversation...
Guy: Oh Jerrad, you speak Spanish?
Guy: Oh you don't? Well, I'll have a Spanish speaking representative call you.
Me: Por que?
Then he proceeds to hang up...man I cannot wait til they call again, might go Portuguese or French this time around. Or maybe I'll act interested in their product and just have fun with them...this should be interesting.
It was an Arab guy, who claimed his name was Jack and that he worked for the government, and he wanted my account number so that he could send me money since my tax return from last year won in a drawing. He laughed at me when I asked if it was a telemarketing call, and he couldn't spell his own name, or his company's name. When I asked him what number I can call to reach his company, he gave me a number that was out of service. I asked him to send me the information in the mail so I can look at it, and he kept ignoring the request, and kept asking me for my account number. He knew my address somehow too.
Sorry, I forgot to fill out the top info.
From another group, some have posted a similar thing, but some actually received a phone number (650-720-9075). The message identified the caller to be "Dave's Carpet Cleaners" It may be simply a nuisance caller?! Or it may be worse!!! For my call, the number showed up as 000-000-0000, which can be anything from 1) spoofing, 2) call steering software, or 3) by using a VoIP trunk. I've also received [legitimate] international calls which showed up with "zeros" so this may also another possibility.
I googled "Dave's Carpet Cleaners" and this site was pulled up --> www.whocalled.us
I also left a post on that site.
BTW, my number is registered through donotcall.gov for almost a year now, so I filed a complaint through the site.
I tried to ask them to remove me from their list but was hung up on. If someone could tell me what company this is, I would LOVE to file a complaint against them!!!
We seem to get a call from this number every day. If we don't answer they never leave a message. If we do answer, there is never anyone there and it eventually clicks and hangs up. Very annoying!!!
This is from Primary fin. Services for past Dell bill
Caller ID "Unknown name" 000-000-0000
collections actual number: 800-749-6434
Some credit card company wanting to lower my interest rate.
This number called me and left absolutely no message. It was freaky that it was exactly at 5:00 Mountain Time.
call from 000-000-0000
Call everday 2+ times/day never leave a message.
One phone showed the number as +442074943667, another showed the number as 000-000-0000 and the text as +442074943667. Per some info on the web this would be a number in the UK - but only for calling from outside the UK. Doesn't make any sense to me.
A recording claiming to be some automated polling and for the reward some tickets - a scam I think.
We have received several calls from this number, never leaves a message & if we answer the call is disconnected.
we've been getting calls recently asking for another member of the houshold who fortunately for sanity's sake is not in when they phone. They just phoned about 10 minutes ago and I had been meaning to call them Facists but forgot, I'm just gonna tell them they've got the wrong number but who they really mean to phone is 0800 00 1066, our "neighbours"
AND the woman doesn't say thankyou when i say "he's not in sorry"
Message on my voice mail saying it was about my credit card. No problems but I should call right away about lowering my interest rate. Press 1 to speak to an operator or Press 3 to discontinue these calls. (Like I'd fall for that.)
11/27/02 at 11:28:22- received call from "Unnamed" 1-000-000-0000 on cell phone while at work. Answered call - no party on other line responded.
odd number...didn't answer
have been receiving a call every day from this number for the last two weeks
These people bug keep calling & calling they don't have clue & keep calling even after you ask them to stop!
Calls several times a day, I do not answer an never leaves a message
It's another telemarketer. Try this:
1) You answer & no one is there: hit ###### many times in rapid succession (creates an even-spaced beep) and hang up; Machine may interpret that your number is bad and take you off the list.
2) You answer & get a sales pitch: say "please hold" and set the phone down till they hang up; If you always waste their time like this, they'd be stupid not to take you off the list.
I work in telephony software, so I have some pretty good experience with this stuff. 000-000-0000 is likely a number of different people calling. If you are getting that on your caller ID every day then it probably the same company's autodialer. If you are getting the call more sporadically and meet someone else who sees the same caller ID there's a good chance its actually two unrelated companies.
There are many things that go into the caller ID being correctly passed, and if there's a failure between the company and your phone you very well may get the 000 000 0000 as the caller ID.
Something else to note:
-It is illegal to misrepresent yourself w/the caller ID.
-Legit companies doing surveys/marketing/customer care never block their caller IDs. It makes privacy managers more accurate and doesn't make sense from a customer relations perspective.
-Collections & Healthcare can (and in the case of healthcare MUST by law) block their caller IDs.
-If a collections company uses dialing software to pulse 000 000 0000 on purpose, that's against the law because its misleading. If they simply use the block caller ID feature you have yourself, that's NOT against the law.
-Caller IDs are sold and purchased by data warehouses and local telcos. If you live in a remote area or have a second tier phone company, they may not purchase the caller ID info for some other regions. That means you are much more likely to get 000 000 0000. Its not the callers fault, its your cheap-butt teleco.
This number called me for two weeks and no one was ever there or said anything.
This number called me for two weeks and no one was every there or said anything.
A recorded message for carpet/upholstery cleaning. They have been calling every three days for months.
I'm so sick of these damn calls... This information may or may not be useful with such a number

Good grief!! This number shows up numerious times on my "spy" phone at work. And it is never the same company. Always someone trying to get the names of VPs and such, they will not give me a call back number. They all work the same. Get names...sell the names...more calls...etc. I don't give them the info they want, and it makes them mad. I tell them that I can't even transfer their call with a number like 000000000 because it is blocked. Too bad...so sad. :(
I have Anonymous Call Rejection (ACR), which allows me to reject callers who have blocked the display of their telephone numbers on caller-id. I think this is their way of getting around it! (Thanks verizon!)
I've gotton the same # over & over again.They won't stop calling me. either it's some telemarketer or the person calls me, i pick up & they just hang up on me.
Here in Seattle, blockbuster uses this number (or more correctly a blocked number) on their robocalls informing you of late dvds.
The caller said they were from National Surveys and wanted to ask a few short opinion poll questions. They weren't actually questions but thinly veiled jabs at Hillary Clinton. On question was, "Are you aware that Hillary Clinton is actively working to cripple our nation's healthcare system and put millions of doctors out of business?" Another question was, "Hillary Clinton had introduced legislation that will put our American soldiers in harm's way and destroy our way of life. Do you think that is right?"
I suspect it's dirty tricks being pulled by the repibli-Cons.
I keep receiving calls from 000-000-0000 on my cell phone. I never answer. Last night this number/caller finally left a voice mail. When I listen to the message it sounds like white noise with a voice, garbled, underneath, like a very very very bad connection. I can't make out any of the message at all.
the id was 000-000-0000 and they call every hour 7 day's a week. I finally answered after finding this website. The person was named Oliver and he had a VERY thick India accent. He asked if I was interested in ordering Dish Network Satellite. I told him DNC and he said that I should visit my ancestors grave and ask why I have a dirty mouth. WOW!... Before I could respond he hung up.
this was my frist time gettin this call at my house but i didn' pick up i didn't even kno the number untel i went to go cheak my caller id... it rang long distance and i don't even bother picking up the phone... as soon i seen the number i called one of my friends, telling her do you know what number just called me??? and she's like "000 000 0000" i was suprised asked her how she knew and she said they call her cell phone all the time but when she picks up theres no one their or they hang up????? wtf is wrong with these poeple????
Guess they are now doing Europe. Got a phone call from a young lady. The line quality was poor and there was a long time delay. Could this be an alien life form? Sorry if it was - but i hung up on her.
This number phoned me. A young woman spoke - but there was a time delay - so guess she is from abroad - or out of space? Something to do with finance. Just cut her off.
In my case, it's been the ARC Cerebral Palsy donation line. It's annoying that they call up to five times a day, and don't leave a message. Judging by most responses, people wet their pants thinking it's a collections agency when if they knew who it was they might have stuff to donate. I'm assuming ARC has volunteers calling from home and enable a system to allow their personal numbers to be blocked.
I got this Call a few weeks ago, so I picked up the phone, he asked for sombody who doesent live here and i told him he wasent here. he was polite and said sorry and hasent called back
I've received calls from 1-000-000-0000 every day for the past six months. Who is this?
this number calls at least once a day if the machine picks up they leave a message that says we are trying to reach "pause" please call us at and then hangs up not leaving a name or number. if i answer they ask for robbie which is not even close to the name of anyone at my number which has been the same for 3 years. when i ask to speak to a supervisor to get off the call list they hang up.
This number called me yesterday. It was a political get out the vote call (recorded) Since they are democrats and I was planning on voting for this particular person, I didn't mind. :)
I'm getting at least a dozen calls per day from this number. I have never answered because of the 000-000-000 number. Do youself a favor. Get a caller ID machine called "Person to Person"....it is pricy $99.00 but trust me it is the best investment I've ever made. After the first unk or telemarket call I block the number...it never rings again! I check the red blinking light and the above number has called many times a day for the last week. ah..peace peace peace!
What does this mean?
Can I block this number/caller?
Received a call from this number today - it was an Out of Area call, and since most of those are telemarketers, I refuse to answer the call.
I'm getting this number calling my house at least 7 times a day. Sundays even at least 7 times. Today, being so annoyed with it for the past two weeks decided to answer. They told me they were wanting to find out what kind of printers/ink I used and when I told them I was not interested they said "Why not?". Don't care to give an explination to them, told them to quit calling the number, we're on the DNC list, remove us from your calling list they replied with "Why?" Told them because they were bothering me and he says "I'm not bothering you." Told him I'm on the DNC list and yes he is bothering me, not to call again and he says "So what?" He was very rude, called 6 more times within 2 hours of that call and will probably be more. Not sure what company this is, but it's really starting to make me very angry!
I picked up and said hello, then there was a beep then silence. After I said hello a second time, there was a brief silence then it hung up.
whoever is calling cannot speak english. they are calling my comany phone and would like them to stop.
It is 6:30 Sunday night and these assholes are calling every half hour.I don't answer, but it doesn't stop them. Blocking the number won't help. They'll just spoof another one like 0000000001. or 2. or 3. etc...you get the idea.
I get at least 20 calls a day from unknown name with 000-000-0000. It is very upsetting to have to listen to the phone ringing all day. The phone companies should be able to bloce all 000-000-0000 phone calls from being processed. With today TECHNOLOGY this should be easy....
I have no idea who this person is calling me from this number. They leave no message.
These people have been calling now for the past two days. I finally let the machine answer it and there was a recorded message about "young people have been paying way too much for car insurance these days....." Blah blah blah.
Will report the 000-000-0000 to the DNC list but I suspect since there isn't a "real" phone number, there is not much they can do for me.
Press one to claim your reward vacation to cancoon... noone answers..
When I answered this phone call, a man asked for me using my full name, mispronouncing my last name. I knew it was a telemarketer so I told them "She doesn't live here anymore". He apologized and hung up.
Calls every morning around 9 AM CST - leaves no message
This number calls my cell phone every day at the same time (morning.) I never answer, so I don't know who is placing the call.
I get one of these calls per day at my work number. No one or thing is present on the other end of the call when I answer it - it simply hangs up. No messages are ever left if I let it go to voice mail. I've got to believe it is some sort of poorly supervised automated dialer.
Of course for all of us growing up it is obvious that seeing a number such as 1-000-000-0000 is not common and I was pretty skeptical about picking up the call but I did otherwise only to be hung up on. It was a puzzle to receive this phone call on my cell phone rather than my home phone as well...
they kept calling me last night and every time i answered they hung up, they called this morning and i answered the person on the other line said Hi Adam, Bye Adam then hung up.
I've recvd several calls this morning and a few yesterday on my cell phone. I suspected it was a bogus number so I didn't answer. I did however send a text to the twit telling them to get a life. About an hour later they called again. I guess I need to register my number again. Go here to do the same: www.donotcall.gov
I just see the number on the Caller ID and ignore them
They called twice today. the first time the line went dead when I answered. the second a lady said something about a survey. I told them I was not interested and hung up
I got a recorded message on my mobikle, from a woman talking about an exciting carpet cleaning offer. The options were to 1. schedule appt. or 8. be removed from list. Since I wanted to know who was calling I chose 1. and asked for the name of the company -- she said "Dave's Carpet Cleaning" or something like that -- I asked her to repeat it and she hung up.
I'm planning to file a complaint w/ the FCC: www.fcc.gov though I don't have much info on who this really was, because they masked their caller ID. It's both a mobile phone AND on the DNC list, so it's completely unacceptable to get any calls like this.
This number called me yesterday and told me that they were from the government and they had 7000 dollar check for me in back taxes that my family had payed in. I DOUBT THAT ONE. They asked me for my checking account number to deposit the money in.
After these idiots called my home four times and hung up, I finally got to the phone quickly enough to learn that this is a call from "Utahns for Public Schools."
Unknown Name shows up on caller ID with the number 000-00-0000. GMAC finally left a message. I have a mortgage and car loan with them, but since all payments are current, no doubt it's their telemarketing division.
This number just called me on my cell phone (at about 9:00 PM). I suspected it was telemarketing so I was silent, but the line went dead immediately.
You know what they say about CURIOSITY...just dont answer!
After a mini-search...this # links to VICI Financial&Mtkg in Randberg, S.Africa(?). And they are calling me to:
a) ask for help to move $$$$$ into the US
b) ask for my bank acct # to
send me my winning lottery money
c) help me to avoid home foreclosure or ?
d) get me a great deal on the Brooklyn Bridge.
what i do is (got verizon wireless and a motorola E-something phone, popular one) and i hit save number, and i just happen to hit whatever, and was named "T". right now i have T, T1, T2, T3. then since i can make a distinctive ring, got about 30 choices of rings, i put those numbers on "silent". here and there i see my phone light up that a call is coming in and its one of the T numbers. but no bother, no ring, never a message left.
Home phones try (i had from qwest) annonymous call rejection. need caller id for like $7 a month, and for $3 more can add that. these alot of time are automatic phone dialers. if no number comes up, or unavailable, not sure about the 0000000, a recording comes to them saying you dont accept blocked calls and push pound and leave a name, then your phone would ring and you listen to who is calling, then can hang up or push 1 to answer. automated dialers cant do that, cant dial #, so call cant come thru.
there is my input, hope some of it helps someone.
ive had telemarketers call before since its actually a home number. be aware that its illegal to call a cell since it costs you money. in Washington state anyway, im in seattle, and non-profit groups CAN call, and fund raisers (police, fire), and if youve made contact with the company before. like i read one person subscribed to a magazine. that company could call legally. Anyway, here is what i do, months ago was recieving alot of calls from diff area codes that was just crap, i pick up sometimes and say nothing, or if they want a card number or someting, or anythign else, say just a sec will get it. move mouthpiece from your mouth so they cant hear you breathing and just sit there. after 3-5 minutes they will hang up. but sucks when your payin for the minutes on the cell, unless nite or weekend.
Have been getting this call for about a week on my cell phone. This is my only phone and I had my old home phone number of 10 years programmed as my cell phone number.
They call 1-2 times a day, never leave a message. since its a cell, no name but number only, 0000000. no dashes, just numbers.
finally this morning at almost 10am, which they usually call about 8:30 and again around 6-8pm, i picked up the phone and didnt say a word.
after about 10 seconds, a recorded message "my name is Tom somethin or another, and need to talk to you and i will make a decision if i talk to you or not. its IMPERATIVE i call back" and gave a number. i slept late and wasnt awake yet and he left a number so i was thinking i will wake up and listen to it on voicemail and call it back. i was out of it, couldnt figure out why wasnt on my voicemail, after a few hours of waking up.....DUH!! not on voicemail, i answered!!
Call almost every day and hang up
this number calls consistantly, weekly and its driving me crazy. It keeps calling my cell phone. I picked up once and it sounded like a fax machine.
called me on my cell phone today. immediately placed the number on my call reject list.
They call my cell and my work daily stating that his name is Paul with OCC and he ask's for me by my first name and then when I ask Paul who he states just Paul. This is very frusterating. If you tell him I am no longer employed here they hang up and then today they said they are going to report me?
I once answered and the computer generated voice was speaking in a foreign languge. Anyone else get that?
Have received up to 12 calls per day - No ID, No message. Not answered. Apparently anybody who doesn't want to leave a real phone number can use this number. Last call was 10/9 - recording left message from local politician. (Guess who won't get my vote?)
How to use Call Trace (from Verizon's website)
Use Call Trace immediately after a call. It will trace the last call you received.
After receiving a call you want to trace, hang up the receiver to end the call.
Pick up the receiver and listen for the dial tone.
You must trace the call before another call is received.
Press (rotary phones dial 1-1-5-7) and follow the voice-recorded instructions.
Stay on the line and listen for a recording that tells you if Call Trace was activated and if the call was successfully traced.
Once you have successfully traced the required number of calls (differs by area), contact your local law enforcement agency and obtain a complaint number.
Note: You must repeat these steps each time you want to trace a call.
Taking further action by establishing a case
Some states require you to trace two or more calls in order to establish a case.
If you want to establish a case, call the Verizon Unlawful Call Center at 800-518-5507 (TTY: 800-254-5959), Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. with your complaint number to open a case.
If you want to hear a recorded message about how to use Call Trace, call 877-TRACE4U (877-872-2348) at any time.
Verizon will store Call Trace information for 90 days. You will be notified within 30 days if there is enough Call Trace information to be sent to a law enforcement agency. The action taken by law enforcement may vary by area. The records of all traced calls will be released to a law enforcement agency only.
I get a least three calls a day I do not pick it up and they leave no messages
Ever wonder where drug addicts, prison parolees, and newly released mental patients go? They become debt collectors....oh.....that's why they are BRAIN DEAD DIRTBAGS!
I have received 12 calls over the past two days from this number. I have yet to answer them but to those who post that it is a specific political party, that can't be true as political solicitations are not covered under the Do Not Call Registry. More than likely, the caller is using different company "name" (ie insurance, political survey) to get you to talk to them and maybe work their scam from that point. Whatever the case, it is annoying.
These calls are annoying. So, even if you are on the DNC, these people can still call?? how dumb!
I've never answered this caller. I usually see who is calling and if it is suspect, I sometimes give the # key 20 or so quick punches then hang up. Another trick I do (I have the spare time for this) is to get a person on the line and occupy them for as long as I can to keep them from bothering other people.
received call from this number on cell phone in middle of the night; the cell # is listed in the do not call registry; no message left
This number has called my cell phone 4 times today ... any idea who/what they are?
I got a call from this number asking for my husband. He said that they were from a parts company. He repeatedly asked for another number he could reach my husband. I continued to ask questions. He finally called me an *ucking *itch and hung up on me.
Call #2 today from this number. I received a call from this number earlier today (posted above) and just received it again. I rejected the phone call this time (they are calling my cell, my only number). If they call again, I will answer and tell them to stop calling.
I don't answer fishy looking numbers and 000-000-0000 is the fishiest number that's ever called me. If they call again I may answer to tell them to remove my number.
We receive calls from this number daily. We never answer - we don't answer unknown calls nor do we answer any 800 #'s. If it's that important they can leave a message. These calls never leave a message.
I was receiving calls daily from this number. Finally I decided to answer it. I never said a word but left the phone off the hook for about an hour.
I have not received another call since then.
After I signed up on the DNC list, I started getting calls from all 0's. I figured it was a telemarket, so I didnt answer at first. Then the calls started at 8am and they called every 15 minutes. I finally answered and they knew my name, verified it and hung up. They claimed to be someone from Mastercard. I heard about some scam going on that they are calling to verify your address and name to do identity thefts.
If they have hacked into the DNC list then they have our numbers and e-mail addresses as well as probably our addresses and names. My advice to everyone is DONT answer the call or if you do answer, press a button and hold it down to piss them off.
this number called me and it said i was going to die in seven days and today is my last day supposedly so well wait and see what happens.It is probably some wierd dude.
Answering machine got the last part of a pre-recorded message regarding carpet cleaning.
I just received a call from this number immediately after not answering a call from 561 202 9199 which is another marketing company.
Evidently the do-not-call registry is not working properly.
000.000.0000 leaves me text messages with numbers of people that i know and that are not in my cell. where are they getting my personal info?
Calls about 4 times a week. Do not answer it since there is no such number.
Blockbuster recording alerting me that I had overdue items. (Legitimate)
I got these calls also. Every 15 minutes they would call my house. I finally picked up and asked them who they were from; they said they were with TGO, a clinic doing research on abortions...
I got about 5 calls from this in one day on my cell. I finally answered, and they said they were calling from my credit card company (although they never actually said they were with Bank of America, just "your credit card company") and wanted to give me free gas and grocery vouchers. They wanted me to go to some website and fill out information about my account which seemed suspicious to me so I hung up and they haven't called back since.
This number has called several times in the last few days and the text reads: Unknown Name.
Called 5 times yesterday, 8 times this morning (about every 24 min.). No Id, No message. - GO AWAY!!
on my voicemail it was someone thanking me for calling a psychic network even though it called me.
When this number called me, it was Blockbuster. Telling me that my DVD's needed to be returned since they were late.
I finally answered after a few days of them calling about 10X a day, and it was the Liberal party trying to solicit my vote.
Give me a break!
I never answer
EMC MORTGAGE COLLECTIONS DEPARTMENT
he called my house and he made him self sound like was lawyer. In reality he is nothing but a low life collection agent. They will try scare you into think they take anything and everything but again he must take you court first, most collection jerks they buy the bill for dimes on the dollar and add extra cost they are scum scum scum
I get a couple calls a day from this number! When I do answer, there is no one on the other line. So annoyning!!!!
Completely loathesome oily male voice selling "pre-need" internment "If you are over 67." Gak!
This number came up on my caller ID once yesterday and about 15 minutes ago. I added last caller to my selective call rejection and it accepted it. Now hopefully no more of the calls will get through. :o)
