Have you been getting annoying calls from the "L.A. Daily News" creeps at this number too (800) 232-6397? If you are bored and have time on your hands, then this might be a fun way to deal with this corporation of cretins while making yourself feel better:
a. dial (800) 232-6397

I live in England and have been getting lots of calls from this number - have tried being polite have tried being rude but they don't seem to get the hint i.e. I DON'T want to talk to them - the calls stopped about a week ago so I wonder if Apllied Finance have finally left us in peace or will they just be phoning from a different number in future? Does anyone recognise the number (001)6122569958? As I have been getting calls from that number in the past week.
If you're on the National Do Not Call Registry, go to their website and file a complaint.
Called yesterday and today at 1:14 PM. I was sleeping both times, so i didnt pick up.
They claim to be "allied financial" wanting to discuss mortgages.
It's a mortgage loan company soliciting it's biz
shows up on my childs phone everyday for the past 2 weeks.
These people call me several times a day. I told the man to stop calling me after he asked to speak with the home-owner...and of course, he hung up the phone.
I have no idea who they are and they called me couple of times. And asking me about someone name called Edwards because Mr. EDWARDS gave this phone number and this is about mortgage and bla... bla....
Called back rang several times.... "Aplied Financial" . Young asian mans voice.
P.S- Phantombyte is more than correct about farming out call-centers to foreign nations. This is the way a short-circuit has been found to negate the Laws of this country, and the Govt. cares less - It is not to their purpose other than feed their budget and keep them in business- So just cool it and report ALL calls and move on -DO NOT get soo exercised over things, as it just ruins yourself and Heart and serves others purpose- Have phone Co. block this #.
This outfit is just getting you people exercised for no reason whatsoever other than make a buck for themselves. They get paid by the # of calls they dial and nothing else, as their system only records the 3 of calls made on their line and nothing else. FTC-NDC agency, doesn't give a rats-rear about stopping or doing anything other than schmoze the public. You have no contact physically with the Govt. and the Govt. likes it that way - The same goes for cyber fraud and theft when someone gets you C/C # and rips you off for large bucks, and they do nothing about it unless figure is in excess of 6-figures.They have designed it that way! ! !. So it's like Bankers, Dr's, Lawyers,Women, and such, you can't live with them or live without them - Like sleeping with dogs, you're gonna get fleas, so contend with it and them. -A Retired Federal Law Enforcement officer
I get a call from this company at least 4 times a week if not more. When I do answer this call it takes a few moments for someone to respond on the other end. Today, the guy asked for one person in the household by name and then when told that person is unavailable he asks for the "homeowner". All I do is ask "Who are you and where are you calling from" and I keep asking this until he gives me an answer which annoys the heck out of him. He insist I requested his company call me and that I did it thru an email and that he has my IP address. He gets very insistant about it too! I told him he was wrong several times and to take me off his calling list all the while he insists I requested his services. I know that this is a bold face lie or he would know MY name!!! Should be interesting how long he will wait till he calls back again...My guess is about a week...How do you get rid of these jerks!!!They call at all hours of the day and night and several times a day if you make them mad.....They are so annoying!!!!
Be careful - I suspect that this number, which I get 1-2 calls from per weekday, is trying to fish for private info. Don't tell them who or where you are because they can then match your phone number up with other info they may already have about your identity!
I see that a lot of you are concerned about the do not call list not working. The reason this is not working is cause the caller is out of the country. A lot of internal us companies are now hiring out their call centers out of the country ... this is a big gaping loophole in the DNC list. I found this out once when talking with some indian guy who told me he would call me whenever and however many times he wanted too.
they have called twice in the last two days. When the answering machine pics up.. they just say "hello...hello?" I looked them up yesterday and when the phone rang again... I picked up the phone and said "I know who you are and what you do. Don't call here again!" the answering machine was still going and he once again said "Hello? ..hello?" lol
We've been getting calls from this # about 3-4 times a day, cant the phone company pull the plug on this #, its been going on for 2 years now
Dude, let's invade their country.
The buggers call every day, almost the same time every time and hang up or don't and leave any message.
Just got a call from ths number about 5 mins ago. Did a Google search and ended up here. It says it is a North Carolina call. when I answered there was brief silence and then they hung up.
I just called them. They are Applied Financial and they told me I was getting calls because I have a mortgage and they want me to refinance.
MAKE THEM STOP! PLEASE
Called and left no messages. I am on the do not call list. It doesn't seem to matter to them.
Foreign lady with some finacial name looking for some unintellegable name . Wish she would learn English . I sleep days and she calls like evry half hour . I,m 50 and it sure makes it hard to stay awake at work . Cut your ringer off if you can . I have kids out of town so no good for me .
They call my cell every day, I refuse to ansewer and they will not leave a message. Tonight I answered before I looked and all I got was some Asian lady saying something that I could not understand.... Must be Al Qaeda.. :-)
Sounded Asian, could not understand them... wrong number?
It rings twice really quick, like when you make a phonecall overseas. I also got an Indian man saying it was applied financial.
Keep getting calls from this number no idea who they are. When you call back it simply rings.
Called back: MORTGAGE CRAP
I do not recognize this number. Before answer machine comes on they hang up.
hey called again today of course they didn't say anything.there must be something we can do.
Oh this is screwed up I got a phone call from this number a males voice saying I know who you are and I know your wife and I am going to kill you or your wife Males voice from 704-800-9978....I am calling the FBI and my local Law Enforcement Agency
They call from this number at leaat twice a day. Caller ID says VOIP DID. Once they answered and asked for my wife by name. Most of the time when I answer the phone there isn't any response.
they have called a few times and hang up And I am on the DNC list
When I called back a man with a heavy accent answered and said he was "John" with "Life Financial" and that I was being called about my mortgage. I guess he was trying to get me to refinance
called twice today wanted to know if i had mortgage said his name was david.
keeps calling my number
I have been getting this call the same time every night
I got a call from them also. They have been calling for weeks. I finally got someone when I answered. The person sounded like they were either using a computer voice recognition software to communicate or some other gadget for disguising their voice.
They said they were from Applied Financial.
Caller: Hi I with calling on behalf of Applied Financial...
Bob: I am not interested
Caller: Can I ask why you are not interested
Bob: I am just not interested
Caller: There must be a reason....
Bob: Look just remove my number from your calling list...
Caller: Can you just tell me why you are not interested?
Bob: NO. Just remove my number from your list and do not call this number again.
Caller: Ok, but it will take a while for your number to be removed from the list
John's Mortage Company
Called claimed to be from Applied Financial, would not disclose address or direct phone number for the company, tried to get personal info and confirm that I had a morgage.
I just called them back & got a live person, but I couldn't understand a word he said.
I answered to tell them them to stop calling and they just hang up.
Said (in heavy accent) he was from a financial company and wanted to know my mortgage rate. I informed him he was calling a number on the "DNC" list and he abruptly hung up.
They spoke with an accent
I called the number back and got to speak with an Indian. They are a mortgage refinance company and I told him to stop calling.
I got a call on my cell from 704-800-9978 this past Saturday and it was a guy with an Indian accent, said his name was Max..he addressed me by name and then started asking me if I had a mortgage..I was like "get to the point, what do you want?" I told him I was at a friend's party and I didn't have time to talk...Then he said he was in Baltimore and asked for permission to come to the party...I thought he was someone joking with me..then I said "Do you realize that within ten minutes of hanging up this phone that I could have your name and location through a PI friend of mine? Who are you?" He quickly hung up. I noticed through some other posts the name Applied Financial in Baltimore for this number. Just checked. No such company. Sounds like an identity scam..just wondering how they got my name and cell number?
Company trying to refinace my house. said they were Online Finacial refinace
i called them today. i got a guy with an indian accent. he said something about refinancing a mortgage. he got my number and then wanted a name. i said jane doe. then he hung up.
This number calls my cell every day somethimes twice and hangs up befoer I can answer, I think because I have a ring back tone.
Just got my sixth call from these folks in a week...I keep letting the machine pick up and they never leave a message. I am also on the Do Not Call list although it appears not to be deterring these people.
called several times in the last few days. when i answered and asked who they were and what they wanted they hung up.
heres what I did, I called them back and hung up 5-7 times. stated some financial group
when answering phone.
A suggestion to all. this has worked for me to get them to stop calling:
The next time you get unwanted calls, answer the phone, as soon as they start talking, ask them to please hold for a minute (go watch tv or vaccuum or dishes or just sit a few mins) then come back on and ask them again what they wanted, when they start talking again tell them you are sorry could they please hold, and go do something else, then come back and say something like "so you want to give me money? you were calling becuase you have money for me?" and when they start talking again tell them to please hold and go off a few more minutes, it won't take long for them to hang up and believe me they won't call you back, they HATE being put on hold.
I got a call today from this number.
Once it said unavailable and second, it showed the number.
I picked up the first time and some guy asked if i was the owner of the home; I just hung up.
After reading all the posts again about this number, I have something to add. Many suggest filing complaint with donotcall.gov if registered. I have done this with every call I receive of this type. Nothing has ever been done. I am beginning to think that the Do Not Call list is a big joke!
Heavy Indian accent claiming to be "John Smith" (how many men from India are named John Smith, lol)with Applied Financial Mortgages. Told him to remove me from call list. Will see if they call back.
Isn't there some place we can complain to that will do something about these calls? Obviously the DNC list is worthless.
Caller ID said Charlotte NC...
they call sevral times aday mornings and nights they claim i own them money
Indian man says, Rowe Finanacial or something like that. They like to pose as your mortgage company and start asking for personal information. They call at least 2 times a day.
they hung up at hello. I called back and it's some mortgage/financial services operation. By the thick Indian accents, probably outsourced to India.
My tween daughter's cell phone has gotten several calls from this number and she never answered it..they called today and i answered it and it was a guy with a heavy Indian Accent and asked if i was the homeowner and i told him to remove my # from their call list. I googled it and it brought me here
Have been calling us for months with no message left. Called them back and I could not understand the person on the other end of the call???
agree with this post:

i got a real person at that number and asked to be removed. they acknowledged the calls were coming from there and I told them if they didn't stop I'd have my computer call their 800 number ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT (easily done with comm program set to infinite redial)
They've been calling me for a long time now, a couple times from the phone number 704-800-9978 and a couple times the number shows up as "Unavailable". Well after most of their calls, I have asked them to take my phone number off of their list. I've spoken to gentlemen by the names of David, Steven, and Jonathan. Each one of them was very rude, they kept assuring me that my name has been taken off their calling list, but some how they still keep calling me. The only information I've been able to get out of them is that they are supposedly based out to of Baltimore, Maryland. It is clearly a call center of some sort, because the ringer tone is clearly not that of an American one. Each time I call back, I have to block my number, because they will not answer my call once I've already called for the day. Guess they use caller-id too.
Called many times, leaves no message, hangs up if we answer. No idea who this might be
In the last few days I have gotten 3 or 4 or more calls a day with no message
Caller identified his company as A-something Mortgage, and wanted to talk with me about my mortgage.
I asked him to take my phone number out of his database.
Mortgage company...wanting to lower your mortgage rates...very rude!!
CALL CAME AND NOBODY LEFT ANY MESSAGE. CALLED ONLY ONE TIME.
How did this person/entity obtain my number? David Brown from Applied Financial headquartered in Baltimore, MD but the calls are originating from North Carolina. I had to call and have them remove my number off their marketing list.
Sometimes calls come from unrestricted number..sometimes this number. Never leave me a message however I have returned a call to see who it was (Applied Financial) and hung up. Called right back and got the same voice but a different first name who answered saying something about an appied mortgage...which I never applied for. Asked how my number was obtained and stated I wanted to be removed from their list...but calls continue to come.
I was sick of this phone # calling so I picked up and it's someone trying to sell mortgages. Never let them get to far before I said I wasn't interested. Could be fraud
Received the call 7-22-07 from a woman with an accent asking me if I had a mortgage on my house. When I said no, she hung up. I am on a no call list, so why am I getting these calls?
left no message
They call, but there is no answer
My Cell phone rings 2 - 3 times a day for the last 3 days, I answer and there is no one there
call me constantly. no one on end when I rtn. cannot locate who owns the number.
They have been calling me two and three times a day without leaving messages. I finally answered the call this evening, and could barely understand what the guy was saying. I did finally catch that it was Applied Financial. It sounded like he was saying that they had my mortgage. I told them to take me off their list and never to call again.
When asked the person indicated he/she was calling from China. Purpose of call was to discuss mortgage. Informed they have an incorrect message.
They call several times a week. I have never answered. I have reported them to the national do not call registry. If you are registered with the national do not call registry, I suggest you do the same in order to stop them.
I called them after receiving a call from them which I did not answer. Asian male, answered 'Applied Financial'.
I asked for my number to be removed, he asked for my name and number and said he removed it and apologized for the inconvenience.
Will update if called again.
did not leave a message, don't know who they are, or how they got my number.
they come in as Private Name and do not speak and/or leave a message. When I called the number I get a "customer care" message to leave my name and number. Left message that I am on do not call list and am reporting them and hoping they get every fine that they deserve
Only one call. Does anyone have a regions bank account? Because they have called me with broken english trying to sell me a second morgage when i rent. LOL
It's a telemarketing co. out of S.E. Asia who works for (according to them) Applied Financial located in Baltimore. The calls are originated in Asia then routed thru North Carolina (that explains the 704 area code). They wanted me to give up a bunch of personal info then transfer me to a loan officer for a mortgage.
Got a call from "private name" 704-800-9978 on 7/10/07. I said I wasn't here & an older woman with a very heavy accent said she'd call back.
Well, for all the good that did. I got someone with a VERY heavy accent so I couldn't understand much of what was said. I'm wondering if this phone company is some sort of front for the business. Hope somoeone else will try and let us know!
Ok, looked them up through the info I previously posted. After getting prompted to call several numbers. I finally talked to a real live person! I am not listening to "muzak". I don't know if I'm going to get any satisfaction but you can try too. Maybe if enough people call to complain, something will be done. 1-800-400-0446. Been on hold so far for 10 minutes. Will post later if I get any information. Hey, I've got speakerphone, I can hold all day long!!!
Pi$$ing me off!!!
Going to try to report them to Global Crossing along with 'do not call' and attorney general. They must move around so they can't be located. I wonder if we can't get a lawyer to assist everyone to sue this company. Maybe they'd learn then!
Type: Land Line
Provider: Global Crossing Local Servcies, Inc
Location: Belmont, NC
Due to number portability, some numbers have been transferred to a new service provider.
oops, should have read some of the comments...I guess no conspiracy theory but I don't understand how they keep getting away with this since most of us seem to be on the 'do not call' list, and several of you have reported them to other agencies. I'm from PA and I know our government is often twiddling their thumbs but .. are they all?????
Called today, 1:43pm. I think they've called in the past. Today, they said, "Hello, may I speak to (what sounded like an actual family menber's name)" I told them they had the wrong number and hung up. Person definitely has an accent of some type. This is rather strange since it seems they must have to be paying for these calls. Hasn't someone (law enforcement) looked into this? I hate to act on 'conspiracy theory' but something is amiss! Like they're scoping out phone numbers and responses or something.
They called my 93-year-old mother in Wayne, Pa. and tried to get her confidence by indicating they knew her address and wanted to talk about a mortgage. I was listening to her politely dealing with the caller and getting increasingly suspicious. I talked to him after my mother gave me the phone. He had a heavy accent -- seemd West African, but I wasn't on long enough to be sure. It could have been south Asian, as the other posters indicate. I invoked the "do not call" list after he refused to give his phone number, though he did say his name was "Daniel Andorson" (sic, he spelled it twice) and his company was "Apply Financial."
Who has jurisdiction over this scam? North Carolina's AG? Pennsylvania's? The feds?
After a few month hiatus, they are back- always no message. If I am on the federal "do not call list", how/why do they keep calling?
They are Applied Financial a mortgage company out of Baltimore, MD calling from Charlotte, NC. Very sketchy people with heavy Indian accents. Probably a scam.
They call several times a day. They will never leave a message. When I called it back, heavy mid- eastern accent. I turned them into the donotcall.gov and blocked thier number
I was getting two or three calls every day and they never left a message. First I went online and filed a complaint at www.donotcall.gov
and the next time they called I answered and stayed on the line, about 45 seconds, until the guy realized I had answered. I told him I was on the do not call list and that I had reported them once already and I would do so again as soon as this call was finished. That was four days ago and they haven't called back yet.
I get calls from this # all the time. I am on a do not call list. Did try to call back but no luck. From the work I do... Here is some advice... do not under any circumstance give any info out that is personal. If a mortgage co wants your business a honest company will bombard you with junk mail. Each state has laws that can get these people in trouble. If you do have a mortgage call your company and ask them ??? about this phone call and the questions they are asking you. They will guide you on how to hand the problem. My mortgage company told me to inform them that you will report them to the Better Business and the Attorney General. That should get the phone calls to stop for a while.
I got a phone call or two also. Answ mach picked up...they hung up. Called back-customer service for a mortgage co.
woman heavy asian accent; asked to speak to homeowner. i told her no and put on do not call list. we'll see what happens
they call all the time and its very annoying no clue who they are either but i called back and got nothing
I have also received calls from this # on numerous occasions and by the time I reached for the phone to confront/inquire with the caller they hang up, I have also returned the call and never get through,I have called them back as 3 am EST to see if there was a voice recording reflecting the companies name but no results I am also on the Do Not Call List and continue to receive calls from this number, I give up on the Registry, my account is with Verizon and I will be filling a complaint, my account is set up so that I have the option to block # but it appears that it needs to be updated
I answered and I was extremely rude - called ID said it was an "Anonymous Call". The man said his company was Applied Financial Services and he was calling about my mortgage. He said, "You do have a mortgage, don't you?" to which I responded that it was none of his business. I told him that since I had NEVER had any dealings with his company that it was against the law for him to call me because I'm on the Do Not Call list with the federal government and that I would be reporting them. He seemed a little upset. I hung up and laughed!!
They call my business number every day and leave no message. Caller ID says "Private Name". Very annoying. Can anything be done?
They keep calling and I keep ignoring. I never get a message and no one ever picks up when I call it back.
They are still calling me. Being in India they are probably immune from the do not call list. There must be some way to hold the people in the US (or UK) responsible for harrassment.
they call several times a day phone clicks twice after answering. No one answers and they never leave a message
don't know who it is all thatcomes up on caller id is number and city and state
They called 2 times so far, whoever they are. I called back just now and my phone kept disconnecting. Some how they got my cell phone number...
Reverse # Search says Global Crossings
No message - Calls several times a day
I called to ask them to remove me from there calling list and someone actually picked up at 11:30 a.m. EST time. It is a mortgage company. He tried to get me to refiance with them while I'm trying to get my name off of the calling list!
A company calling themselves "Audio mortgage
Let's start reporting them to the telephone company. Maybe they can put a stop to this harassment, or take their service away...
After repeatedly telling these ppl not to call, private unlisted number, on do not call list, i contacted my phone carrier. I have followed their instructions which were contact your state's Attorney General's office, also the FCC and PUC have domain over such issues and may be able to assist you. One main point is being on the national do not call list; however, as a consumer even if you are not you DO have RIGHTS! Document somewhere dates, etc, did you state for them to NOT call any further, etc.
These calls are getting rediculous
These people keep calling my cell phone. It took me saying "Hello" twice before I got a heavy Indian accent speaking to me. I'm at work. The only reason I answered is because it was probably the 5th time they called today and I wanted to find out who they were.
They call every single day atleast twice a day and when I answer there is silence then they hang up. When I call back it constantly rings. It's so annoying!
Calls several times a day and never says anything. I've called the number back and it never rings and hangs my phone up.
This guy called claiming to represent Allied Mortgage Holdings or something like that, gave him 30s to give his pitch and he immediately started asking questions about my home finances at which point I hung up. Sounds like a scam to me.
They call at least once a day, have for months, and never leave a message. I have filed dozens of complaints with the FTC on them.
i have no idea who they were, but they had an English accent.
They call numerous times a day. Don't respond to "hellos." Leave no message. Called back even after I told Indian caller that I would be reporting them
10mins after posting my comments on the whocalled.us site I received a phone call once again, this time I was ready, I held my phone to my stereo speaker and turned it up to the loudest it would go and the " nice gentleman" on the other line had a brief rendition of Megadeths NO MORE MR NICE GUY...any other suggestions?
When I get a call from this number I am asked to speak to Mrs Steadman, the first few times I told them they have the wrong number, but they still call. Recently I have told them Mrs Steadman is in prison for armed robbery or my wife has run off to live with her lesbian lover or on one occassion I pretended to burst in to tears whilst saying my wife died last week in a skiing accident...this hasnt helped, they still ring, however, the next time they ring I shall have a foghorn waiting for them
I called them back, but dialed *67 before the area code...therefore they cannot ID my name/number. It rang a few times, then someone picked-up and hung up. I called them back again and they hung up after one ring. I plan on calling them at 3am every night, until they stop calling me. That, or I'm driving to Charlotte, NC with a baseball bat.
PLEASE GO THIS FORUM TO GIVE MORE COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS HORRIBLE COLLECTION AGENCY
i have know idea who there are they dont leave a message
this number has called me three times in the past two days and just hangs up.
They called my cell phone at 1:39 in the morning. Who are these people.
they're some dumb people who want to refinance your home, except i live in an apartment.
They call & never say anything... then hang up
I wonder if being a call center in India makes them exempt from the Do Not Call list. Anybody know?
Everynight this number calls the same time and says nothing. There is no background noise or even breathing. Its sure annoying.
Called back, guy with accent answered on 1st ring, "Applied Financial". Told him I rent an apt., no need for mortgage. Took name and number, apologized and said he would remove me from list. We shall see.
Called several times but never leaves a message
I have had several calls from these people and have baited them to get some information. The are a call service in India. American mortgage companies and probably others contract with them to make calls. This first call I got today, I kept the fellow online a long time and asked him all kinds of questions. He is a student in India and was very polite and chatty. I didn't give him any information, but I know what he paid for his house and how much it has appreciated. Or at least I know the story he was telling. I got rid of him without giving anything away. It dawned on me that the people in the call center are helpless to stop the calls and that I had to get to someone further up. The chatty guy told me that the loan officer was on the line and ready to talke to me, so I was hoping someone would call again. I did not have to wait long. I got a woman with a very heavy accent. I asked to speak with the loan officer. Another fellow with an accent came on and asked me all kinds of financial questions which I answered. Of course none of the answers were correct, but I eagerly kept asking to talk to the loan officer. Someone named Michael then came on. I told him what I thought about the multiple calls and his exploiting people. He told me then about the contract with the call center in India. He seemed very offended that I accused him of exploiting people there. I got his assurance that the calls would stop. We'll see. If they don't I'll either talk to another loan officer or try to convert the caller to some weird made up religion.
This number keeps coming up on my phone and bill. I wonder is this the reason for the increase in my bill all of a sudden

I called and was able to spk to someone. Told them to remove me from calling list and told them I was on the Do Not Call list - she even asked if I have a mortgage - I simply replied I am on do not call list. She sd it would take less than 1/2 hr to be removed - we will update shortly.
called back and got 'peter from some financial company'
Called my house Five times in one day. I've done some research and found pretty much the same as everyone else. I even called them back stating I was a used car salesman and that they needed to buy a car from me....
There's a post on Digital Spy that the user says he traced the number to a company called Applied Financial Mortgage Services. Even though a background check might trace it to an individual, the FCC has a better chance if they know both the business and the owner of the number.
Also, everyone these days needs to be extremely careful about what they sign up for, both online and any offers in stores, magazines, etc. Read the fine print! Since the Do Not Call registry law went into effect, telemarketers have stooped to using fine print and text in areas most people don't bother to look at, essentially adding things that give away your right to put them on the DNC list, or at the very least something that authorizes them to call you. That's how a lot of people get spammed as well - if you sign up for or buy something online, make sure there aren't any check blocks marked that allow them to send you newsletters or offers that also include stuff from 3rd parties.
I have recieved 3 calls so far. When I answer, they hang up.
I did not recognize the number,I let the answering machine pick it up. All they said was "hello" and hung up.
They have called several times -- one time a heavily-accented male said he was calling about my home mortgage. I think this is a bad attempt at a scam.
these people are pissing me off..id really love to be face to face with them..they'd never call me again thats for sure..
Leaving no message.
Pain in the butt these people are.
Hey, yea... I have been getting a call from this number as well maybe 3x a week. When I do not answer they leave no message. But when I do answer it takes them until the 3rd or 4th "hello?!?" to respond... (I have gotten a female & male foreign accent) I have only received this call on my cell phone, which I DO NOT give away RANDOMLY! They call about my mortgage, which I reply back.. "I have no mortgage I am only 19" in which they try to SELL me there bullshit. I tell them to quit calling me but they still intend on harassing me. I asked how they received my number and from what I could make of there POOR English is the word STATE... (VA virginia)
said hello and nothing
Who is this?
Calling in Virginia I guess now
I've been getting them from this number but today actually spoke to a person demanding that they take my phone number off their list which this person said they would do immediately so that I don't get any more of these calls. I threatened that I have them being investigated. The person who answered sounded foreign, perhaps Indian but I'm not sure. We'll see what happens.
No VM, no idea who.
I hate this number no one ever responds and they call almost every hour
I have no idea who they are.
As a first step, reporting them to the Do Not Call Registry.
If they call again, I'll bury them in B.S....
they never say anything when I say hello
I get a call from this number on my cell #. Man with thick accent finally speaks after I say hello twice. He states he is with a mortgage company and asks if I am interested in refi of property. I adv no and ask how he got my cell number. He said from records of people who have not refinanced in last 3 months. When I inquired further call was ended.
This is getting really annoying. AS with everyone else on this list, they call my mobile phone 3-4 times a day. Now when i call back, it just click. Maybe they ahve my number on their caller id to not pick up
I've recieved many phone calls from this number as well as a few others from this same company. The man who called said his name was Daniel and he was calling from Applied Financial. I should be filing a complaint soon because I am on the "Do Not Call Registry" and I am sick of this.
Report them to the Do Not Call Registry. www.donotcall.gov
They called on my cell phone. I am registered on the do not call list so I am not sure how they got the number. They leave no message. The calls from this # started yesterday. It was # 903-891-1101 before & I received several calls a day from them for months. I never answer calls I do not recognize. They also leave no message. I think the 2 numbers are related in some way.
They promised to call back in 24 hrs. They NEVER CALLED AGAIN!
They may be a real (albeit inept) mortage screener that refers the information they take, (with only enough money to buy ONE phone list they insist on working to death) or thieves trying to get your info. To be safe, (be honest about what they probably already know, address/phone, etc. to trick them) but skew your birthdate. Use THIS social security #: 403-22-0863. Dear old Uncle Quentin won't mind. (he's been dead for 20 years!) If they're thieves, you'll be protected. If they're just a poorly run business, it may discourage them from harrassing others, if they start noticing the pattern...That everyone they interview gives the same bad SS# and is just SUCKING up their time. Yes, it'll take about an hour to make it stop. But from some of your postings, they've sucked up way more of your time than that already. Keep them on the phone as long as possible. To make it fun, try to beat my record..(I spent 15 min. w/the first girl, and when she couldn't hack it anymore, she referred me to her supervisor, and I sucked up another 45 min, so MY record is one hour! It was worth it. Just adding up how many seconds it took to run to the phone and check the caller I.D. it was probably more than an hour of my life. Boy it sure is QUIET around here now! :-)
Here's How to STOP IT!
I came to this site the same way you all did, and after reading your comments, I realized A. the normal avenues don't work, B. We're dealing w/crazy people, and C. We need to out-crazy them! Here's what I did: When they call again, answer. When they start interviewing you for a mortgage, act VERY interested. Make yourself the WORST loan candidate in the world. Tell them you have been unemployed for a year due to (pick one, some or all) accident, surgery, divorce, drugs...Go into elaborate detail about your problems. Tell them you have been paying all your bills on credit cards for months, and you SO need a loan. Make your first and second mortgage higher than your house is even worth, but make it believeable. You get my drift. (see next posting).
I think this is Allied Financial. One of there businesses is debt collections.
I am also getting calls from this number . But no body on the phone . If you are getting so much complains about this number than why you are not closing this number .
The number shows up on my caller id several times a day, but they never leave a message.
Came in as "PRIVATE" when I dialed it back, I got a double ring sound and no answer. on 5/25/07 Colorado
OK. I have been getting these calls FOR MONTHS! No one is ever on the line. What do they want? Whats the point of calling if you wont talk? Does anyone know what we can do? These people need to STOP!
There calling my cell phone..I have no idea how they got my number.
Called and didn't leave message. Annoying.
Same thing - call several times a day. Usually don't answer "blocked name" calls but I finally picked it up. They hang up every time.
I just wanted to add....I hope everyone is on the "do not call registry" and reports this company because they seem to be MAJORly annoying!
I have had several calls as well...have no idea who it is.
Have no idea who this is, but they call every day. and it's getting old fast
They call repeatedly, and never leave a message.
Called my house.. thought it was somebody else, but now have no clue who they are and they still call.
Is this number a crank call
they just called me and wanted to "re-fince" ;) my home for me. the accent was indian.
I think those calls are to determine when someone actually answers the phone. That way the real telemarkters can call when someone is home.
call several times a day,when answer phone no one there
This guy has called every Friday for the past 3 weeks and wants my daughter to refinance the mortgage she doesn't have. I have told him over and over again to put this number on his do not call list, he says OK and keeps calling I think I will report this number to the FTC
704 is the area code for GA.
do not have the guts to let anyone to know who they are
I have no idea who they are but they call when I am on a long distance call
They call daily. They say they are from Allied Financial and ask questions about our mortgage.
no message...drivin me nuts!
they call 3 or 4 times a day no message and all i get is a busy signal when i call back
I get about 2 calls a day. I'm of the mind that if they can't be bothered to leave a message, I can't be bothered to answer when it's a number I don't know. They call my cell phone. I'll have to put that on the DNC registry.
These guys are Have over 300 complaints with the FTC and National Do Not Call.
What you need to do is report them for calling.
called me in spite I am on do not call list.
Left no message. Mtl, Canada
I kept these phone spammers on the line for almost 15 minutes. Only way to bother THEM is to take THEIR time. I would go back and tell them to wait a minute and had a radio playing.
They usually call around 5:30pm and also at 8:30pm this evening. No responses when I answer the call. I returned the call and got a busy tone and it disconnected on its own.
It's a Mortgage Boiler Shop located in India.
Does anyone know how to stop these a**holes from
calling from the third world crap holes?
Calls and hangs up when I pick up. No identification.
i have received over 5 calls from this number in the past 4 days and probably double that in the past few weeks at my business - which is a corporate office! What do they want?
These jerks call me almost every day, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day. They don't leave a message. If I am home to answer, I usually get dead air from the autodialer. Half the time it hangs up on me. Sometimes I wait until a person answers. They call themselves Applied Financial and they want to help me with my mortgage. They deny that they are violating the Do Not Call registry. I have repeatedly complained on the Do Not Call website but there must be something else we can do. I ask them to stop calling but it doesn't make any difference to them. I called them preditory scum and told them that they should be ashamed of themselves. If these bastards can be tracked down I would love to take part in a class action suit against them.
They keep calling.. twice showing number and then unknown.. who are these people?? Only once did I talk to a person who asked for someone that I don't know...
I get 2-8 calls a day from this number, always asks for Sarah or hangs up on me. when I ignore the call he doesn't leave a message. I keep telling him not to call back but continues to call anyway!
They have called 3 days in a row now, I can hardly understand them, They ask for my wife by her previous last name and she tells them she does not have a mortgage and to take our number off their calling list but they continue to call
They called on Friday and today which is Monday, asked for me by my maiden name I told him that I do not own this house, the same thing I told him on Friday and to put this number on his do not call list. I have no idea who they are.

Apply? (i think) Financial Company...
Called the number back after about a week of no messages or talking when I would answer... Got some guy with a heavy accent and after three times asking who he was I think he said 'Apply Financial Company' a mortgage broker??? Hope this helps...
fuck 'em. My will against theirs; I'll never answer a call from that number.
they call me several times a day and never leave a message.
Someone from this number would call me at least 3x/day for months. If someone said anything I would tell them that I was not interested and of course that did not stop them. One day I decided to tell them that I was not a home owner. I have not received a call since. It has been about a month now since the last call.
I've called this # back seeral times, I always get a "mike" who assures me my phone # will come off their list. He says they are calling about my mortgage. I don't have a mortgage. The last time I called back (today) he said that I probably got called again cause they make calls for different companies and assured me again my # would be taken off the call list. We'll see.....
This person is collecting information used for identity theft. They do not actually "live" at this number: they just relay through it. They are not telemarketers, they are intelligence collectors. They ask home numbers for persoanl info that they can se for ID theft. They use work numbers for IT center collection info (passwords, usernames, data sources, etc.) GIVE THEM NOTHING AND EXPECT NO PROTECTION FROM A DO NOT CALL REGISTRY.HAVE THEM BLOCKED BY THE PHONE COMPANY, BUT READY FOR IT TO COME FROM ANOTHER NUMBER SOME DAY. I am an IT Security officer at a Federal Government Agency, and they even tried to get us. (Not an agency that can "zap" them, unfortunately, but they have been reported)
These dirty SOB's call my work phone EVERYDAY, and hang up, I finally got them by picking up the phone snd shouting, DON YOU HANG UP ON ME, YOU **** !!!....I asked the caller if they realized they called a business phone, and the caller tried to apologize, but I would not let him. I asked him if he was proud of his job, calling people and hanging up an them, or pestering them, then I SARCASTICALLY told him I was sure his parents were real proud of him too, for getting such a geat job bothering people, they should be slapped,I was really yelling at this guy, and my entire floor was witness to the conversation.I finally asked the jerk to transfer me to his supervisor, when he sheepishy apologized and hung up the phone. I did not get to speak to a supervisor, but I was able to vent a weeks worth of aggrevation on one faceless,telemarketing a**hole !! IT FELT REAL GOOD!!!!!
he asked if I was the home owner, and said he was with a financial company..asked about my mortgage, then i hung up.
Called and hung up when I answered
Please report them, I am on the do not call list
They call me at 12:30 almost every day, but they never talk. When I try to call back, but it just keeps ringing even though my phone signals they are on the line.
call same time every day a few times a week. The area code is from North Carolina...? Wierd
I called them and they told me that they were Apply Finance located in Baltimore. I ask why the had a N.C. phone # and to stop calling me and they hung up twice
I got this call to but I didn't answer it but on my caller ID it says North Carolina call.
got call from this number 5-6 times a day...
The ubiquitus "lady from India" strikes again!!
Apparently, this one was researching into IT usage. The calls have spread to the UK... I was nearly VERY impolite & asked her to call again when she could speak clearly enough for me to understand...
These people call me relentlessly 3-4 times a week. No matter how often you tell them you are not interested they just keep calling. There HAS to be a law! Thankfully, I recently switched to internet phone service which allows me to selectivly block phone numbers ant let me tell you there's is the 1st one I blocked!
just like the others say, they called the past few weeks, several times daily and never say anything when i answer or never leave a message.
who is this asswhole
Just reported them to the Do Not Call Registry. You guys do it too, ok?
ID said blocked name. Must mean a block-head is calling. I didn't answer and won't when I see that.
Male voice said Hello twice to my answering machine. Real smart!
They called me many times in one day. I think their called Allied Mortgage? Something that starts with an A... Mortgage.
Called asking for my wife, I asked who was calling, man with thick Asian accent would not say. Instead he asked, rather curtly, if I had a mortgage and what was my rate. I asked him if I have a pre-existing business relationship with his company, as I am on the DO NOT CALL registry. He immediately hung up.
Yeah I get a call in my CELL PHONE from this dude with an accent about every 2 or 3 months or so. I dont even have a house!!!!! If anyone knows how to block or make them stop since its a cell PLEASE email me at email@example.com. Thanks!!!!
CALLS 3 TO 4 TIMES A DAY - 4 TO 5 TIMES A WEEK - WHEN U ANSWER THEY HANG UP.. HAVE ALSO REPORTED THIS TO MY LOCAL PHONE COMPANY.. NEXT COMPLAINT TO THE FBI..
They called my cell phone asking for my mom and wanted to know if I owned the house. I am not even at home because I am in college.
they keep calling. i answered. the man who answered asked for ME (i'm 17) and said he got my name from a website i was at yesterday. i asked him the name of the website and he neglected to tell me. he asked me if i had a mortgage. i asked him who he was, and he didn't answer. he spoke broken english. i asked him where he was located, and he said baltimore, maryland. i asked him continuously what website he got my information from, and he didn't answer. he then continued on to list my address as well. it was VERY scary. i asked for his name, but wasn't able to understand. matt something. i don't buy it. i asked how many people worked at his company and he said over one thousand. also, i asked for the supervisor and he said he was the supervisor. i asked for the manager, he said he was the manager. then, i asked for the owner, and he said he was also the owner. VERY sketchy.
I never answer calls if it doesn't give me a name. This number called us several times, daily-we live in St. Pete, Fl. I'll never answer, but maybe will someday and blow a loud assed whistle into the phone.....
call's a couple times a week with no messege or answere
Calls all the time and does not leave a message a real bother to me at my job and home
who are these people
I get a call from that number several times a day. They don't leave a message. The one time I did answer it was a male Asian with really bad reception.
If you're on the do not call list, report them
We frequently get calls from this number. We don't answer. Caller ID says "Private Name" Private Number
Have received about 5 calls over a weeks time. Always let answer machine pick-up - asian accent, says hello 3 timeas and hangs up - no message
It's is some mortgage sales office..someone answered when I called back..broken english, asked if I own a home..I ended the call
They keep calling us too.
About the fourth call from this number. Never had anybody speak to me. When I call this number, it simply goes to a fast busy signal and then hangs up.
This is Global Crossing Local Servcies, Inc** in Belmount NC
Calls daily, never leaves a message
I keep getting calls from this number and I told them I was on a do not call list and hung up. Then the guy called back 2 more times.
Morpheous called me. I am trying to get in touch with him. I'll take the blue pill. Neo Out
Cowboy Clothing Company is not that number. The number is similar but we do not do any telemarketing. In fact, our number is almost exclusively incoming calls.
Called at 2:33 pm on 4/13/07, no message was left. Called my cell phone.
got a call from them yesterday and of course on the second ring they hung up. called back and got the name of the company "applied blah blah blah". told person on phone to remove my number as i do not like to pick up phone and have no one respond. she informed me that they do not "dial and hang up". i told her yes they do and they did it monday night also. gave her my number and the hag hung up on me. i called her back and told her not to hang up on me...then hung up on her (child like yes..but i needed to take my frustation out on someone). got another call tonight..rang twice...no response when i answered the phone again. called several times got an answer. told the man on the phone that i want my number removed from the call list and what happened yesterday. i told him that i would be filing a police report as soon as i hung up with him. he assured me that i would get no more phone calls. we will see...but i will be filing the police report if i get any more calls.
don't know who they are.
GOOGLE finds this number immediately and it can be quickly equated to:
The Cowboy Clothing Company
They called me in the UK too when I was out, leaving no message.
I'm tired of these people calling me. I told them not to call me again.
I can't understand most of what they are saying, something about owning a home and mortgage, loans, something like this.
they called, left no message. wasnt sure where they were calling from.
call my business several times a week, no one says anything after saying hello several times
No Clue, but they are calling on my cell phone late at nite. when you call back it sounds like going over a sat.
2 asians, a female & Kevin, called from this number..
they said they were Applied Financial & wanted to reduce my mortgage.
(i don't have one!) but asked what business it is of theirs..etc..etc..until they hung up on me
A Man on the phone was insistant he could refinance my mortgage for a home at an address I did not recognize. Even said the mortgage specialist was on the other line to help me. He started to ask specific questions and I hung up.
This is a calling center for Applied Financial Mortgage Services.
Why, in heaven's name, do they think I'd consider refinancing my mortgage with a cold caller from India???
the usual routine
they call i answer they don't answer who knows
I too am in the UK and started getting these calls a little over a week ago - once a day usually. Each time I have answered the line has cleared immediately. Very annoying, to say the least.
calls all the time and will not leave a message.
I have had calls from this number everyday for a week...
I live in the UK
I've gotten like 4 calls from this number, all at times when I couldn't answer, never left a message.
Got the call from Apply Financial, so they said. "Peter" had a thick Indian accent. He would not answer where they were located other than Baltimore, MD. He would also not give up a phone number - no big surprise. I decided to have some fun and asked him if he was aware of the national Do Not Call list. He said that it had nothing to do with him because this was not a telemarketing call - it was simply a call to discuss my mortgage and how they can offer a better rate. Pretty funny stuff. I then told him that I have a 12.9% mortgage rate on a $1.4M home with $500K in equity. He didn't know what to do with himself and told me that he would call me back. That call should be fun when I really push him for more information before I listen to his proposal. If nothing else, I'll waste a little of his time while I get a laugh.
A mysterious call came to cell phone and it was dead with no response, wasted the minutes on my cell plan !!! Hope they never call on the cell and distract. Luckinly I was not driving when this call came. But it is annoying and frustrating.
This number answers under the name Simple Solutions
Do not have any idea who they are
I have no idea who they are.
I have gotten these calls many times before. When I do answer them, nobody says anything, I just hear a click. Never do they leave a message. I wonder if they are trying to see if someone is home or not.
Or, they are trying to find out what time of day I'm home in order to call again with solicitations.
Calls once every few weeks, wastes a minute from my cellphone answering it.
Tried to sell me mortgage
morgage company, random solicitaions to the "do not call" list.
YET AGAIN, ANOTHER "CRAP" CALL...COMPLETE NUMBER SHOWED UP ON CALL DISPLAY - LEAVES NO MESSAGE -
THESE TYPE OF CALLERS NEED TO GET A LIFE!
calls all the time no body there and wiil not leave mess
I found out what this number is, its some kind of mortgage company. what ever you do if they call u don't pick it i gave them what for today i told them off
i got a call from this number as well, i don't know who it is, all i know its coming from North Carlina
same as everyone else
They call me some mortage co. person with Indian accent cant understand a word of English told them no more calls, but they keep calling now I call them midnight ect 8-9 times a day and hang up on them.
I got a call from this number about 20 minutes ago, answered, and got no reply, so I hung up. Literally LESS than a minute later a got a phone call from a Unknown Name/Unknown Number, answered and a man with a thick Middle Eastern accent ask for me using only my first name. I told him that I was not home and hung up.
A few minutes later, I called 704-800-9978 back and said "Hello, I've been recieving phone calls from this number and was wondering what why?" the man replied [with a thick accent that I couldn't place] that it was about my mortage.. and I said, "Well, I don't own a house.. I'm living with my parents.. and I'm only a teenager, so I don't see how calling about mortage would pertain to me.." and then there was silence for a few seconds, and I followed up with "I would appreciate it if you do not call this number again. Thank you." and I hung up.
I don't know what this was about, but if you see this and get a call from these people, don't give them ANY information... no matter what.
I also looked on WhitePages.com and did a reverse phone search and it says that the number is based out of Belmont, NC.
they call several times a day and leave no message or answer when I pick up.
I received a phone call from this number and have been receiving calls from this number up to 10 times a day even late at night. The gentleman I spoke with was very hard to understand and demanded to speak with the home owner and refused to give his name to me and when I asked for his name he said "I can play that game too. What did your parents tell you not to give your name to strangers?" And still demanded information from me and refused to give me a number where I could call them back.
This number called my cell phone twice already, both times have been after 6pm. I haven't picked up yet and they have never left me a message.
They call alot without ever leaving a message
Called me twice during dinner and kept asking me if I was charging things to there phone. I hung up on him and he called back and I told him call me again and this goes to the police. havent heard from him since.
They keep calling my cell at least once a week. Try to call the number back and you get nothing-not even a tone or a ring.
No messages left...2 mar 2007 1;18pm est
Did not answer the call received at 6:06 PM. Caller ID read N CAROLINA CALL.
Called @ 1:23pm - heavy Asian accented male voice. Told him to remove me from whatever list he got my #. 2 hrs later, was called from same number. Heavy accented female voice this time. Told her next time I got a call I'd just forward to my attorney.
I answered the first time but no one said anything. I've ignored the other 3 or 4 times they've called. I have also registed my number with the do not call list
they call all hours of day and night never say anything
I get this call once in awhile. It's been about a month or so since I got this number.
This "mortgage" company keeps calling at all hours of the day. I can never understand the person on the other end, I think it is one of those out-sourced companies in India or the Philippines. I've asked them to stop calling. I have also reported them to the DO NOT CALL registry at least a half-dozen times. I even tried to get Verizon to block the number, but they say they can't do that. Next step is the FCC and the FTC. I hope these people get NAILED in fines!!
They are a mortgage company. They are cold calling to try to get you to re-finance a mortgage with them. I have told them 3 seperate times to stop calling my phone each with the same response; I've put you on the do not call list, but yet, they still continue to call. I am trying to get a company name and address so I can report them to the FCC.
Another today . . . that makes five. Complaint filed.
Second call. I suspect some typy of financial scam of international proportions.
Another call tonight . . . complaint filed with the FTC. This makes four.
Yeah i just got a missed call who is this person anyone know!?
Isn't there anything that we can do about this?I receive a call from this number all the time.
1st call today 2/17. I answered but no one was on the other end.
Started getting calls from this number. Awhile back, a different number called me all the time and left no message. Will file complaint.
Oh yeah, here's more. Try googling another similar number... no results. Looks like this is the only number that could be perstering people? Yeah right SCAM!
Here is my theory. The company that runs this website is calling you. They are hoping you will google the number like I did & get you to pay $14.95 to find out who it is.
I am on the Do Not Call List. Hmmm, I am starting that this list really doesn't work.
Couldn't understand him very well because of accent, but he said he could lower my mortgage payment. I finally hung up on him.
Well, at least in my case, these calls aren't collection attempts. My home is paid for. I pay ALL my bills on time all the time. I'm convinced these calls are attempts from Applied Financial attempting to SELL something. They are using a call-center in India in an attempt to circumvent the Do No Call list.
I've received a call from this number today and i'm interested to see these comments. People are assuming these are sales calls but I'm betting they are collection calls. That's why they want to know if you hold the mortgage on a particular property, so that they can identify you. I have been receiving calls from O.S.I. Inc., a collection agency with offices in mid-atlantic area, every day recently. I told them to stop calling this number and now I'm getting calls from the 704 number and they hang up if I don't answer right away.
Left no message
ya this number calls everyday and if they think its annoying that i don't pick up then ha ha on them b/c i don't answer unknown callers and i can turn the ringer off - eventually after not answering they'll stop calling
Said hello and whoever it was just hung up.
The number 866-862-9873 is a call-center in India. They are acting as representatives of Applied Mortgage. The call-center is named Styx Infosoft Pvt. Ltd. The phone number 866-862-9873 is listed on their contact page www.azurecrm.com

asshats . . .
Complaint filed . . .
The number mentioned above, 866-862-9873 is Applied Financial. I spoke with A Mike Chambers and demanded removal from their calling list, referred him to this website and told him I will be filing a complaint with the FTC.
They say it is in reference to a mortgage, but most times dead air when answered
They just called me also, no message.
Called 4-5 times in one month no answer when i picked up. I called back and it was a strange beeping noise. Called my phone company, they called the number and got the same noise.
Three calls from them in 7 Days I filed a General Complaint at FCC
If you want to get off their calling list, call 866-862-9873 and ask for Jay. He will be able to help you stop the calls.
They did not answer when I said "hello". Don't know who they are or why they called.
Got a call, returned it, and it just rings busy. Kinda eerie
I just received a call from this number... I said hello about 6 times and finally someone said hello...it was a males voice...I said "who is this?" and he said " it's your boyfriend Shawn" ...I then said "I don't have a boyfriend" ...then he asked to speak to the owner of the home and I said "this is not a home, it's an apartment"...and then he hung up...I must say that was a really strange call.
This number is very annoying and when they call all they do is hang up. ge rid of them PLease!!!
Calls several times a day. I do not answer. Reported to FTC Do Not Call List
I get a call from this number at least 2x a day to my cell phone. They let it ring just long enough for it to show up, and then hang up, they don't let it go to voicemail. I've tried calling it back several times, and it just rings a double ring.
I have reported the violation twice with the National DNC list and asked to be removed everytime they call. They continue to call daily.
Came in as "Private Caller". Woke me from my nap! Heavy accent. Wanted to speak to me about my mortgage. I told him my mortgage was with a bank and I wasn't talking to him about it. I also told him I was issuring a complaint with the "do not call registry" and for him to learn to speak English before he called anyone again.
NICK REA OF BELLIGHAM, WASHINTON is somehow involved
Call me and it is somehow connected with these hackers.... NICK REA OF BELLIGHAM, WASHINTON is somehow involved
I received a call on our cell phone. It hung up before we answered it. I did some digging on the internet and came up with this site that says this a robot auto-dialer owned by ESM (Education Sales Management) from CO and they are solicitting for Florida Metropolitan University in Tampa. We are in Florida too. Here is site address for info and who to contact if it is FMU in Tampa that is soliciting: stop8666837590.com
Reported to FTC Do Not Call List
Calls several times a week. Never answers when I pick up. Very annoying!
They called three times so far. I picked up and nobody was on the other line.
I was stupid enough to answer and the person started asking me about my mortgage interest rate and refinancing. I hung up.
We need to take these people to court
Caller ID said "Private." I answered but nobody was there. After that, and after seeing all of these comments, you can bet I won't ever answer this number again!
Have received calls for the past week. They hang up when I answer.
I got a call from they twice. After reading all your problems I tracked down their phone company. It is Smart Net.#701-456-3700 they bought the phone number from Global Crossing Local Servcies. Give them a call, when I called the gentelman did not even state he was a smart net agent.
Hope this helps
P.S. contact the Public Service Commission if it continues.
I also get calls from this number..a few times a day for the past several weeks...they don't leave messages and at time I answered and they hung up..also I have been getting calls from another number about grants for education..I confronted them and they hung up on me..they told me about a website but it was not an authentic site...anyways I think it must be more scammers...for both of these numbers..it says blocked name on the caller id..anyways be careful
Called us tonight 905pm, decided not to answer. Don't know anyone from N.Carolina. After reading these, I don't plan on answering this call.
this number comes up as private name and then the phone number
Woman with heavy Indian accent says "I am calling about your mortgage". I say "I don't have a mortgage". She hangs up.
Called my cell phone!! Rang once, hung up. Tried to call back, just got long beep, like an answering maching, over and over again.
Same as roy mote...they call several times a day and leave no message.
They have called my cellphone about once a week for the past month. The number shows up, but they never leave a message and I have no clue who they are. I did a reverse search and the following information came back:
Type: Land Line
Provider: Global Crossing Local Services, Inc.
Location, Belmont, NC
I have received calls from this number 3 times as of the morning. No message and when I call back I get what sounds like a European ring!!!
Someone keeps calling several times a day and hangs when the outgoing message plays out.
They called and it went to my cell phone answering machine. I went to liten to the message and the message said "Kelly" This person who sounded male said my name and that was it
i have no idea who it is and when i answered the phone and said hello several times they hung up.
They call my cell phone... Told the nt english guy to take my number out of thier database. Some mortgage company they call about evey other day. When I call the number back it gets disconnected.
Started getting calls last week. Thought I was just getting to the phone too late but as soon as u answer, the line goes dead. Really annoying.
2 calls so far, 12:05 PM, 5:47 PM EST. No answer, just line noise! ID is just Belmont, NC. Notified FTC today along with Charlotte, NC BBB noting info for phone line owner, i.e. P. Morrison in Elgin, IL. My phone has been registered on the no-call list since 2003. Next call is to the FCC!
Received their call today and the man on the line asked me if I was the mortgage owner on my home address - and he repeated my home address. When I told him no and that he call a cell phone, he apologized and hung up.
I'm getting the same answerin service and the calls come in once or twice per day.
They called several times this week after 5pm. Caller ID only shows phone number. They did not leave a message.
A company trying to sell me a mortage. They called my cell phone number and kept calling for about 3 hours
My caller ID came up as
Charlotte, NC. No message left, just many annoying phone calls.
called around 8:00 Eastern time. I called the number, message said customer care please leave message. I have received this call at home and on my cell phone, both of which are registered on do not call list.
many calls different times usually a hang up never spoke to anyone
I just got my first call from this number. No message.
For those of you on the DO NOT CALL LIST, if they are a business and the call is a solicitation from someone you do not and have never done business with, you may be entitled to up to $11,000 per call. May be worth checking into.
i dunno who the hell these people are
i got a call yesterday from them and they were asking me about refinancing a mortgage i said no and they just called today a day later
They keep calling here, I have call intercept through Verizon so they will be added to my blocked calls. Although I'm sure they have numerous other numbers to try calling from! Number comes up Private Caller, got the call today at 1:46pm on Jan 17,2007
THE CALL ABOUT 2-3 TIMES A DAY AND NO ONE EVER SPEAK WHEN I SAY HELLO BUT THIS TIME SOMEONE SPOKE. SOME FINANCIAL COMPANY AND WHEN I ASKED TO BE REMOVED FROM THE CALL LIST HE REPLIED "WHAT CALL LIST?" AND HUNG UP.
called my cell
16 jan 07
no voice on the other end, and I hung up very quickly.
Got a call from "blocked name
", thought I'd Google it and found this site. I haven't a clue as to who they are. I didn't answer the call.
Private Name appears on caller ID Has strong "Indian" accent wants info about mortgage. I have no mortgage, I say I am on DNC list he hangs up
call at least 1 or 2 times daily never says anything. I think it is a collection company A ex neighbor gave out our number and she must owe alot of money. It is very distrubbing.
6:09 pm, my mom answered the call no one there.
Called and asked for Mr Miller...then hung up. Listed as PRIVATE NAME
Called and said company name but could not under stand him said do you have a mortgage that is when I ask for his address and was going to tell him I am on the do not call list then he hung up.
BLOCKED NAME came up on caller ID---do not answer ANY calls from people I do not know. No message on answering machine either.
when i called the number back it answered as customer service no company name
Got a call from this number the other day. No msg left. Just a number on the caller id. We live in PA.
Calls all the time never leaves a message. When I call back I get a weird ring anf a recording for some customer care line. They tell me to leave a message! Why would I leave them one when they don't leave one?!
Caller id read "private caller." They did not leave a message.
The caller never leaves a message but continues to call intermently.
Those jerks just hang up when I pick up! Its like they are just checking what time of the day we are home, so they can call us again or something.
Private caller 1-9-07 @2:39PM
Just got a call from them listed as Private Number. I answered and they said nothing, so I added it to my ZAP list. I use a neat, free program called Phone Tray free to "ZAP" calls. You can use a voice message also if you have a voice modem. Get it at:
They call 5 to 10 times a day. When you say hello no one answers. Called them back and told them to take us off their call list, however, they continue to call daily. It is quite annoying.
Call numerous times a day. No messages. No one answers when you do pick up.
They have been calling 2 to 3 times a day for the last couple days. I am on the DNC list, however they apparently do not abide by the list. I do not answer any calls labeled "unavailable". If it is important they can leave a message, however they never do.
I recieved call 6:28pm jan 3 07 man with india accent was asking about my mortgage trying to get personal info i suspect. he insisted that he was not trying to refinance my current mortgage, and that he was calling from my current lender. Called them back and left them a meesage regarding my intent to contact the state police and file a attempted fraud complaint.
They called this morning at 8:23am.EST. On the caller ID it is BLOCKED NAME. But they call a couple of times a day. Can't anything be done about this? I'm on the NO CALL LIST. But that doesn't seem to work.
said they were cust. service. no company mention
My theory is VOIP BUSTER...
it seems since I started using this on my cpu, I started getting annoying calls 2-3x a day! Can't say for sure. But if you use the direct call feature, you must include your home phone number thus...
1/3/2007 rcvd call. Caller ID listed the call as North Carolina. Their name is Applied Financial Mortgage. I have had days of several calls from them. They are trying to set you up for refinancing your home.
They called me several time, every time the call hung up all sudden..
Je reçois plusieurs appels par jour provenant de ce numéro, mais ça raccroche immédiatement quand je réponds. J'ai appelé mon fournisseur de service (videotron). Ils m'ont dit que la prochaine fois je dois faire *57 et ensuite faire une plainte à la police pour qu'eux autorisent mon fournisseur de service à bloquer ce numéro. J'ai hate de voir le résultat de cette démarche...
Received call at 7:50 PM EST on 2006-12-21. I do not have caller id so I star-69ed and got the number 704-800-9978. The person calling spoke such poor English with an asian accent that I could not discern anything they were trying to say.
This is the second time this week and this call came at 8:07 this morning. I have no idea who they are either, but this is getting to be a pain in the butt.
Same thing here...they are a pain in the ass!
he live in charlotte
your phone song no open
c est u n gars qui call
no idea who they are
Called again. I haven't heard from them in a few weeks, but last time they called I told them not to call again and that I was on the National Do Not Call Registry and he said he didn't care and he would call back.
I've been receiving calls from this number on a regular basis on my cell phone (sometimes, daily, sometimes 3x a day). The few times I have answered, I'd get no response (even though there seems to be someone still on the other line). When I don't answer, the caller never leaves a message. It's aggravating to have the same unknown call disrupt your flow of the day!
I receive calls from this # for my daughter regarding mortgage loans or if she has a mortgage. When I attempted to tell them not to call, the women hung up. When I called the number back it says something about customer care.
I get this call about once a week so far. The caller id says blocked name/private caller, they are becoming very annoying. I also have no idea who they are.
I live in Toronto and the bast**ds have been calling me too! I just found out! It's Dec9,2006.
I'm a shift worker and have to sleep during the day but need my phone on!
WHAT IS BEING DONE ABOUT THIS ??
The person on the line harrased a member in my family. Saying sexual things. DO NOT ANSWER!!
b@st@rds refuse to give up, I'm getting 3 or 4 calls a day
They are using a preddictive dialer. A person came on the line and asked for my son or the homeowner.... said they were Applied Financial. I've just filed a complaint with the Do Not Call list.
We had a similar call yesterday with a recorded message on our answering machine from 712-429-0435.
the caller id said this number belongs to VOIP DID...I called the # back and its a recording to leave my name and # and its customer service will call back...no way will I do that and recieve more calls
I have received calls from this number numberous of times. when i try to respond to this number a recording of a female presenting the company as Customer Care answers. I have no idea who this is.
I have been getting calls
lately from this number.
When i answer a foreign
female voice will say
HI customer care... and
then the recording is
My wife received calls from this number more than five times again. The caller called again this morning. He was a man with an Indian or Pakistani accent who wanted to sell some mortgage. He was silly.
I get calls all day every day from this number. I never answer the call.
I have reported them to the Do Not Call Registry
Just got the call and didn't answer. Best thing is I just found this site. You guys know you can have a trace done. If they dont stop you get $$$. Must fill out a police report they send you...
They've been calling me for over a month. I never answer, so now they are purposely leaving very long messages on my voicemail, sounding like they are just banging the phone on the desk. I've reported them to the do not call website many times, as my number is registered there. It doesn't seem like anyone is taking any action against these people.
Thank God for Caller ID. These calls have been relentless, have been going on continously for months. I just hit the kill the ringer button on the phone and go about my business and let them waist their time not mine
December 4, 2006, 7:20PM EST. These people call every day and have been for months. I have tried to get them to stop calling my cell....always a foreign voice, very annoying. Says they are Applied Financial Mortgage.
Register a complaint with government at www.donotcall.gov - the more people who complain, the more action will be taken!!
I get this number about every 2 to 3 days. This is annoying! I'll report to FCC.
called my cell, left no voicemail. annoying
Called my cell phone
Calls numerous times and never leaves a message.
I recieved a call from the number 704-800-9978 on Tuesday Nov. 28, 2006 at 8:37pm. My phone showed the number and the lacation that it was called from which was North Carolina. A woman asked me if I lived at my old address and I stated no. She asked if I had a morgage. I said no then I hung up.
they call my work cell phone every day 2 or 3 times but I don`t answer it
I suspect it's information gathering (ID theft or just shay marketing?). They called asking for Mrs. Luna. maybe fishing for me to say my real name or, "no, this is the johnson residence" or something like that.
I got a call from them at 4:17PM eastern time.My postal code is 15131.
All it said was private number. I wasnt here when it came in but i tried to return the call later and I got a recording of a foreign womans voice saying Hi.Customer Care and that no one was available to take my call and they wanted my name and phone number left to return the call. I didnt leave it
This person called asking about a mortgage on my home.
When I picked up the phone I said hello 3 times before someone came on the line. I believe this is because they are calling using a predictive dialer system. What this does is waits till it gets a person on the line and then transfers the call to a live person ready to talk to you (Sell you something).
Asked me in very broken english if I owned my own home. Something about mortgages...Accent sounded Indian.
Name: "Private Name"
No answer when I picked up the phone. No response when I said "Hello"
Getting this in Canada. In 411 reverse lookup states that it's a land line based in Belmont, NC. The registered service provider is Global Crossing Local Servcies, Inc
Getting calls several times a day no one answers.
I'm beginning to put private numbers on my block list if they call and no answer. I was getting a call every day at the same time of day so I blocked it and no more calls.
I'm in Canada, this number has been calling 3-5 times a day for the last 3-4 days. I like to toy with telemarketers but no one is on the other end it just clicks acouple times and gives busy tone?
I'm already on the national Do Not Call List. I think it the Taliban calling to "terrorize" us through extreme annoyance!
They call my number practically every day! I decided to "go along" with their call and pretend to be interested in whatever it is they have to "sell", but there is nobody there! What the he** is the point?!
picked up the phone...no answer on the other end and finally it hung it self up and the oporater came on and said if you would like to make a call.. i called the number back and only got some tones and beeps.
I receives 4 calls from this number today...no answer...I realy don't know why they called me...I'm from Canada and this number is from USA...
I've gotten calls on this number a couple of times now and both times I have received no answer. I wish they would at least answer so that I can tell them to take me off their list.
I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that keeps getting a ring from this number. I receive a call every other day, but miss it. They never leave a message though. I've called the number back before but no answer. When I called the ring sounded like it was tapping into a foreign country. According to WhitePages the number is provided by Global Crossing Local Servcies, Inc so most likely it is an oversees company. It would be nice to block it.
Sounds like they are now targeting the UK.
Claimed to be Contrywide Financial Ltd.
Very persistant wanting to "review" our mortgage and other financial info.
Our Phone No is on the UK No-Call list.
I have received 4 calls today and when I answer no one is on the other end and the lines goes dead.
Who are these people and hw do you block this number??
They have called at least three times today. When I answer, someone with an asian sounding accent tells me they want to conduct a survey on corporate responsibility. When I start asking questions (who is paying for this survey), they get me a manager. Manager doesn't asnwer my questions properly and hangs up on me. Person couldn't even pronounce Canada properly.
call ALL THE TIME THEN HANG UP - IF I CALL BACK ALWAYS BUSY
we have gotten one at 4am too.
But again: It comes up as BLOCKED on one our phones, and Private Name Private numberon another phone.. and we cant redial it. they dont leave a message
what should I do??
I get "private name , private number" they call at 2am est, its started Nov 6th.
when I hit redial it wont go threw
when I finally anser I got a BEEP..
what is this?
File a complaint with the do not call registry at:
I am sure if enough people complain, they will file an investigation!!! Make sure your number is registered also.
I get phone calls from this number. I pick up the phone and then they hang up
Periodic calls for last couple of weeks. I'm on the do not call list but obviously they don't care. How do I join a class action suit?
I answered the phone and this guy with a foreign accent said hello and when I said hello back I didn't hear anything else. I waited and nothing so I had to hang up. I did recognized the voice because this person left a message saying something about someone being asleep, I did not understand a single word he said because of his accent which sounds like an Asian person.
Get calls from these people constantly, sometimes twice a day, but at least every other day.I Some Indian sounding guy wants to talk about my current mortagage.I keep asking them to stop calling, it hasn't worked yet. Dialed the # on caller ID and there is this weird beeping sound,long silence, then beeping,then disconnect.
Caller ID shows Unknown Caller and the #
They keep calling! I'm on the do not call list. They are a financial mortgage co., my zip 19810
The caller id showed unknown name. When I answered no one responded.
I received a call 11/6/2006 from this number. No answer when I say hello. Cannot call them back. Caller ID says "private name".
No message - Am I being charged for this call?
I finally answered after days of missed calls. This Habib indian guy kept saying hello. I told him to put me on the do not call list and he said "Why?"...I then said speak english and go back to your country you terrorist Muthaf&$&*@!
-They then called back 3 times and just said "HELLO" ...I then put myself on the national do not call list.
My husband and I received several calls from this number. We answer and no one is there. It is very annoying. I have logged a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (www.ftc.gov)or 877-382-4357. We have also called our local telephone company. We can add a feature to our phone package to block individual calls. Hope this helps someone else.
I never picked up this call and i just slammed the phone on them
I don't know who they are!
They call several times a day...everyday! I answered once, and no one responded...and they never leave a message.
I complained once before about this number and the calls stopped. I even made a report since I'm on the Do Not Call list. However, they just recently started calling me again. No one is ever there if I answer.
i have recieved a phone call everyday at 4:20 p.m. on the dot for that past couple months, i answer and noone answers back
These &*%#$@ people have called have called me daily since October 10 including weekends,I am even on the Do Not Call List
800-446-1022 another telemarketer fishing for suckers; seriously, quit your job and report your boss to authorities
800-232-6397 another b.s. telemarketer; quit your job and do something decent with your life! you scumbags! maggots!
received just a few minutes ago... never leave message.. All I get when I answer is three tones and then a click. Within last 3 days at least 5 calls..
They call here everyday - mostly a foreign male voice. I keep telling them to take my name off their list. They agree and then call back again and again. Who can we report this to? The FCC?
I receive a call from this number like clock work abuot 2 times a day for the past 2 months...I stopped answering it. When I used to there would be noone there...one time a Indian sounding gentleman asked for someone and i said you have the wrong number. Last time I ever go a response
This number calls me every night. There is never anyone on the other line and when I call back there is a foreign woman who says I've reached customer service, but doesn't say of what company. I didn't leave a message. Who are these people???
I just got the BBB number for Charlotte, NC, which is where this area code is from. The FTC recommended calling the BBB and requesting the address attached to the phone number so something can be sent to the address and then when they call again they get fined.
The Charlotte BBB # is 704-927-8611, M-F from 9am-4:30pm.
They have been calling me daily for a month. I am so tired of it. I have threatend to report them to the police, and they still call. I reported them to the FCC and the Do Not Call registry.
What do these people accomplish by such a harassment program? They call 1-3 times per day, ALWAYS hang up after I say hello. I used to get a forign-sounding lady recording at "Customer Service"., but now it just gives a beep-beeep-beep sound. What imbeciles.
I tried calling back an got a customer service recording and left my own message for them. My wife had previously got who must have been that same lady with the accent so their computer must keep calling anyway. I did copy this URL and file a complaint with the national do not call registry.
We have been receiving calls nearly every day for several months. They do not leave a message nor answer when I pick up. Our telezapper gets them so the call may be computer generated.
didnt answer but they called
Get called from this number everyday. The times vary. Last couple of times just dead air.
I just filed my complaint! If your on the list it's quick and easy. This is the only way to stop people like this. www.donotcall.gov
I have not idea who this is. They say that it is Customer Service and to leave a number that they can call back.
None, but sencond call in as many days.
Have no idea who they are, have called several times at night. They leave no message
Okay, I bought the entire background package. Jamie Morison phone number 704-800-9978 traced to Brenda S and Peter Q Morrison at 561 Waters Edge Drive in South Elgin Illinois. Oddly enough I couldn't find their phone number, but I did get a list of their neighbor's numbers. I may try calling them...

I get calls from this number frequently. I purchased information on the caller from Intelius, but I'm not sure what to do with the information. I am providing it free here to anyone else who is tired of being bothered by this caller:
561 Waters Edge Drive
South Elgin, IL 60177
24 years old, no criminal background. The phone carrier is:
Global Crossing Local Services, Inc.-nc
ADDRESS Charlotte, NC 28280
Get a call from this number at least once a day. Always takes a second for them to respond when I say hello, every time it is someone with an Indian accent. I have asked them repeatedly to take me off of their list. I only answer now to give them a hard time and to say stop calling.
They have called numerous times. I have filed a complaint on line with the Do Not Call Complaint Registry, although it doesn't do any good. Today, I kept saying "hello" until a man with an accent finally spoke. I told him that if they call me again, I will sue them and told them to stop calling. He replied "may I ask why?" I told him they were a scam and all over the Internet. He said nothing, so I hung up. I don't even get why they call! It's like they're "professional annoyers" and get their kicks out of just calling people. Yes, I used to do this when I was in the 4th grade!
Varies calls and no information given and hang ups, female voice . This is geting a little old . Next time I'm going to try a loud whistle
all they is call and when I pick up they hang up.
Identified themselves as "Apply Financials" and were talking about a mortgage. Hung up when I told them I needed their name so I could report them to the Do Not Call Registry for a complaint.
I've been receiving calls from this number for several weeks now. Everytime I answer, there's nothing on the other end. I'm fed up with dealing with these types of calls.
there is a number that you can call and for like every call you have you can get some money out of it.thats what i was told
caller id said private caller; answered phone and no one answered; i heard a hang up click and when i tried to call it back, i got the phone rang with double rings and no one answered. pretty irritating since it's 9pm ET and I wish someone was on the line so I can rip them a new rearend.
They call several times a day. Never leave a message. It's getting VERY annoying!
They call daily. Never a message. If someone can get a phone number of their main office we can start calling them back to complain. If everyone calls them... every time they call us they should get the point. We shouldn't have to but...
Okay, so i did some research and the company they say they work for has no type of connection to the one in NC, they company has nothing to do with mortgages as what they said they do, the Company is based outta CA.
Is it just me, or is no one getting called inside NC, even though the company is apparently stationed there... Odd
same story as everyone else. Thick accent kevin and someone else (same voice though) I've talked to them 3 times in the past 2 days and have told them not to call. I got calls from them last year too but never looked into it. I did file a complaint with DNC if that does anything.
They call everyday, sometimes someone answers and sometimes there is nothing. This pisses me off. Is there anything we can do to stop this? It almost along the lines of harassment!!!!
At least once a day, usually around 4:00 - 5:00 PM. I get a call from 704 800 9978, caller ID says "Private Name".
If I pick up, they hang up. If I let the answering machine pick it up, they hang up. How can I stop this jerk?
This number calls at least 4 times a day. No One is ever there!
If you are on the National Do Not Call registry, go to the below link and file a complaint EVERY time they call.
Allied Financial Svc's
After a few complaints, the Fed's will see something is up...
To get the company info, play along with the call and express your interest in their services. Once they take the bait, ask them for their company name and location. Then tell them you are on the national registry and to place you on their companies DO NOT CALL list and hang-up. File your complaint every time.
They call EVERY day. And lo' and behold theres no one on the other end. But seriously, at least once a day I get this call, if not more.
They call 5-6 Times a day, about mortgage, and i told them not to ever call back, and they still keep calling; I'm on a do not call list too. I pick up and get smart, yet they keep calling, is there anyone we can report this to
I don't know how they got this number, but It is on the Do Not Call list for solicitors. They are foreign people that ask about my mortgage.
5 calls from this # Private Name and 704-800-9978 on caller ID. Calls even after 7PM..Other dates but did not write them down! I AM on do not calll list!
We receive one call almost every day, usually when we're getting ready to eat dinner. Tonight a man with a foreign accent called and when I asked what company he was calling from I could understand him - Applied Financial. I have no business with them, so I asked if he would remove my # from his calling list. He said 'No.' I said, 'We don't take telephone solicitations, okay?' He said 'No.' He then said 'You have a mortgage, right? and I said no. I then told him again to stop calling and said goodbye. Internet search revealed that Applied Financial's offices are in California. All the calls are from people with thick foreign accents. I did a call trace to get the # and am reporting it in the morning to the Call Tracing Bureau. I am so sick of this, I'm going to try to do something about it!
they call 4-5 times a day, no one answers, they just hang up.
THEY HAVE CALLED ABOUT 20 TIMES IN THE PAST WEEK. I HAVE ONLY ANSWERED ONCE AND NO ONE WAS THERE. I HAVE REPORTED THEM TO DONOTCALL.
they call everyday .. who is that I need to know because I signed up for the DO NO CALL LIST.
I have now reported this number to FCC do not call 12 times. They call on a daily basis trying to get me to refinance my mortgage.
This is one of several harassing phone calls I get daily. I finally had to put 'call block' on my phone! Same story as I'm reading; calls several times a day
I received a callfrom a female caller saying she was calling from "Applied Financial." When I questioned her further, she hung up.
JUST TALKED TO VERIZON'S ILLEGAL CALL DEPT.AND WAS TOLD TO USE *57 RIGHT AFTER I HANG UP FROM THIS CALL. THIS IS FOR CALL TRACE. HAVE TO CALL TRACE 2 OR 3 TIMES AT $1.00 PER TRACE THEN CONTACT MY LOCAL POLICE AND FILE A REPORT.
AFTER CONTACTING POLICE AND GETTING A COMPLAINT NUMBER, OFFICER'S NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS OF THE POLICE DEPT. I AM TO CALL THEM BACK AT 1-800-518-5507 WITH THIS INFO AND THEY WILL PROSECUTE THE COMPANY.
Recieved a call today the guy couldn't pronounce my name and I told him he had the wrong number, he hung up. I am on a no-call list!
they continue to call - I've reported the complaint on the government Do Not Call website
They call multiple times a day and hang up if you do answer. I reported them to the do not call registry.
I have reported this to the FTC 3 times. The more people who report this, the more likely this company will be shut down.
If you are on the do-not-call registry, go to ftc.gov, and report it.
I am for a class action suit. Question did anyone buy a DELL???
This is a spam from a call center in INDIA. They obtain personal information from you to rob you of your life savings. I notified the no call list and will continue to watch for them to call me again. I advise any recieving a call to report them to www.donotcall.gov
Just got the call (2nd one in 3 days) on my cell. Filed complaint with DoNotCall Registry.
I just started receiving calls from this number, too. They hang up if I answer, and there is a busy signal when I call the number back. Does anyone know how to get them to stop calling? ? ?
Receive at least a few calls per week. Have answered 3, always an accented person - always tell them to stop calling us.
Tonight I learned this:
If you have been registered on the National Do Not Call list for 31 days, go to:
and register a complaint against them. Do this every single time they call. If we all do it, perhaps we can run them out of business.
Who wants to start the class action suit?
Rec'd a call from this number tonight at 8:38PM EDT. Selling mort. refi.Told her I was on the do not call list,and not call me again. The person,a female with an accent,origin unknown
I used to work in a call center, i wonder if I upload that number into the dialer, and ONLY that number to dial every 30 seconds how they'll like it?
Numerous (3-4x/day) calls from 704-800-9978 in the past few weeks. I have filed a COMPLAINT at www.donotcall.gov after reading through the messages posted here. I happen to have printouts of all caller-id call records since early August, so they are toast.
Call at least twice a week now for 4 weeks. No answer when I pick up to tell them to stop. Any Ideas?
Called again today at 1730. Asked what company that he was with he said Apply Financial out of Baltimore, MD. I asked him if he had ever heard of the do not call registry because the number his company continues to call is on that registry, then he hung up. Didnt want to hang around for the but chewing he was going to get.
I want these people to stop calling!!
I've received several calls from this number. When I answer the phone they hang up and they never leave a message.
Just called me yet again after I have told them to stop calling me. I am reporting them to the National Do Not call Registry. I suggest you all do the same.
I get calls from this number on weekdays, usually 2 or 3 times a day. The thick foreign accented man says his name is "Andrew" or "Kevin" or "Steve", but it is the same voice each time. He asks for me, but mispronounces my last name. He has tried to sell me a mortgage each time. He hangs up when I mention the do not call list. The last 2 times this number has called, there is no one on the other end.
I found the phone carrier for this number, it's Global Crossing Communicatios. I went to the website and called a customer care rep and they said to call public utility commission and report it or call my provider and get it blocked because it is harrasment. I suggest calling Global Crossing Communications because they provide service to whoever these idiots are that call.
They call several times a day. How do you stop it?
Still calling me and I've told them not to call again. Don't they get in trouble for harrassing people?
Just received a call out of the blue. Have no idea who this is.
I've received multiple calls from this number, usually daily for more than a month. They do not leave a message. It comes up as Anonymous on the caller ID.
I get at least 5-8 phone calls from this number a week. I happened to google it today and found this site. How strange that others get this number. Noone is ever there when I pick up, and when I call them noone answers.
They call up to 10 times daily and no one on the phone. I have had no voice communications with the caller. This has been happening now for a month easily.
im gonna find out who they and talk to a lawyer. I am on the national do not call list and these 3 times day calls are really getting on my nerves
In the past couple of weeks, I have noticed a lot of calls, several calls every day. The latest call was 10-12-06 at 6:41 PM. The caller hangs up when I say hello.
This is extremely irritating. Can anything be done to stop this?
This number has called me twice now and doesn't leave a message. I'm on the do not call list so I don't know why they are calling me.
This number calls every couple of days. When I answer they hang up. I called back once and threatened to report the number to the police. They called again anyway. Last call was 10-12-06 at 8:50 pm. Caller ID says PRIVATE NAME.
I have been recieving calls everyday from this male subject.You can tell that he is listening, says my name then hangs up when I get rude with him about calling.
I have no idea who this person/business is either. I answered the phone the last time they called and they just hung up??
I HAVE BEEN CALLED 3 TIMES WITH NO MESSAGE LEFT ON MY VOICE MAIL. RETURNED THE CALLER AND JUST GOT ODD TONES. I WILL JUST BLOCK THIS NUMBER.
I recieve calls from this # several times a day now, starting two weeks ago. There is never anyone on the other end to speak, but if you call back there is a automated customer service message
This number keeps calling my cell phone. It rings one time and then hangs up. I am also receiving Unavailable calls that are doing the same thing and those calls started the same time the 704 #. Sometimes I get bothe calls within 10 mins of eachother. When I call back I get an answering machine that says something about "customer care."
1 - 2 times per day.
Tried calling back, no answer. thanks for the info and feedback everyone.
Did a web search on this number and it's a landline belonging to: Global Crossing Local Services, Inc. based in Charlotte, NC. As this number has called me 3 times a day on my cell phone, from 10/3/06 to today 10/10/06. I only got one call today. Hopefully because I've made a complaint put as my number is on the do not call register I've also complained to them. Hopefull no more calls. I don't answer calls when I don't know who they are.
I receive calls from this # several times a week. Usually there is no one there. Tried to call back and only got a voicemail (female,thick accent). Last week, there was actually a man on the line when I answered (again, thick accent). He was asking for someone that wasn't me and when I tried to explain that they had the wrong # he hung up on me.
I received a call from the 704-800-9978 on my cellular phone caller ID and it revealed the state of North Carolina. I answered and no one said anything. I called the number back and it did not identfy as a company and stated about customer service.
Just missed a call from this # 10/10/06 @ 6:57EDT. Called back and got a Euro-sounding busy signal. Called back again and got a Euro-sounding ring. No answer.
They jsut called me Tuesday the 10th
called twice, i don't answer calls from bloked name
No message on the answering maching just the "Private Call" & "Blocked Name" on the caller ID.
This is a NC number obviously, I am in VA..Same complaint as everyone else but when I try to call back I get a beep tone no answer
I received call starting 10-4 thru 10-7-06. Total of 5 so far. Caller ID shows Blocked Name. No one ever speaks to me or machine.
Finally spoke with someone at this number named Kelly. I told her I was on the national do not call list and asked if she would remove me from their lists and any other lists they have for companies they work for. She told me she would do this.
If they call back I think I am entitled to $500 for each call.
This number 704-800-9978 calls several times a week. They never leave a message. However they continue to call.
Have gotten calls from them atleast 20 times. Next time I will pick up
Called me just a second ago. Did a Google on the number and got this site. This time, and all of the other times, no one talks when we answer. We're also on the Do Not Call List.
Received 3 calls on caller id marked private
I've received many calls from this #. I finally answered on 10-5-2006. Female w/Asian accent asked for a name that doesn't live here. I told her she had the wrong #. She then asked me if I had a mortgage at a certain address. After 3 or 4 attempts to understand what she was asking (unsuccessfully) I told her that I couldn't understand what she was trying to say, but it was clear that she had the wrong address as well. I would assume that they are trying to sell mortgages. I closed by telling her I was going to file a complaint with donotcall.gov because my # is registered there & she was breaking the law by calling me as a telemarketer. She then hung up. Hopefully that # won't show up on c.i.d. again.
My VONAGE caller ID showed that this call came from CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA. I called and got a busy signal, then called again and got what SOUNDED like a ring, but it only sounded 4 times, then stopped. INTERNET SPAMMERS and TELEMARKETING CEO'S SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT AND SHOT!
If someone knows how to file a class action, I am there. I have already filed 5 complaints with Do Not Call list. But, I guess that does no good.
Private Caller & Unknown. A male voice with a thick accent started asking me about my mortgage. I told him I wasn't interested and hung up.
WHO IS THIS PERSON!?!?
These people have guts. When I am home, I watch the caller id for them to call so I can answer!! I have totally gone off on them like three times (every other time they hang up). This last call, I told this woman that I was logging each call and I would be reporting them (that is actually nice compared to what I really said) she just sat there!!! This is one caller that I will not let off the hook! What good is Do Not Call if they are still allowed to call???
I just rec'd call from this number today and when I answered no one was on the phone.
I get calls from this number on my cell phone at least once a day. When I pick up, there is silence on the other line. After about 10 seconds, the "caller" hangs up. Upon calling the number back, no one picks up and after a minute, there is a continuous beeping. This is really weird.
Yes...I've gotten several calls (twice a day for 2 weeks) from this # asking for my husband & they won't let me take a message.
KEEP GETTING CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER- NEVER LEAVE A MESSAGE- THIS IS A BUSINESS LINE!
They called and said doing a survey. An Asian man, sounded Southeast Asian, started wanted to know my year of birth.
I suspect they are an ID theft organization.
I answered but no one on the line.
they have called for the past couple days. i don't answer it. they don't leave a message.
I get 5-7 times a day and late at night. They never leave a message. Is there anyone I can call and report this????
I just received this call a few minutes ago and looked it up on google and found this site. I believe this was the first time they called. The person on the phone was a foreign woman. I told her I could not understand her because she was talking too low and her accent was making it hard to understand. After telling her repeatedly that I do not own the property for the mortgage, she finally said good-bye and hung up. What a bitch.
They call my cell phone, twice a day, back to back calls. I've received these calls for about the last 10 days. I one time I called it back, it was a recording with an asian lady, and you couldn't understand what she was saying.
I think we are all on the "do not call list" Class action anyone?
received on cell phone
i have been getting this call a few times a day to my cell phone for the past few months...it always rings like once then hangs up...that may be due to my ringback tones...however i have also called back and i get the same foreign female voice..although i couldnt understand her enough to figure out she was saying "customer care..." and I have also got the disconnected tone when calling back at other times
The company's name is Applied Financial Mortgage Services.
no clue who this is
Get this # at least 5 times a day. VERY annoying.
I received a call from this number immediately following reporting a call from Security Pacific Financial that I received from 602-624-4928. I don't know if the two are connected, but I called the Security Pacific Financial complaint # at 1-800-370-0010 and left a message on voice mail. Not more than 5 minutes later I received a call from 1-704-800-9978. When I answered the phone it sounded like an open line, and there was no response to my answer.
Just call Lee at 701-456-3700 and ask him to tell the company who owns this number (704-800-9978) to put you on their do not call list. If that doesn't work, record the date/time of three phone calls, and file a police report.
FINALLY got a person when I answered this call. They've been calling for days and no-one is ever there. The company is Apply Financial and they want to refi my mortgage. NO THANKS!!
They have called me all summer long. I have called this number back and all I get is a woman's vocie mail that says "Customer Care".
So annoying!! They call on my cell phone 5-6 times a day.
They call 3-4 times per day. They never leave a message, and whenever I answer, no one responds when I say "hello".
no one answers
Called on 09/19/06 at 01:56 pm, called id says N Carolina Call
I receive call from number all day. They never leave a message
Called me Twice more on Saturday and twice again (so far!) today.
No clue who they are, they call multiple times a day and no one answers when you pick up but you can hear them hang up after a few seconds.
A look up of the number says its from Belmont, NC; most likely a bum telemarketing system from that area...strange a lot of central FL people are getting hits though.
Calls several times a day, no one is there when I answer. I called the number back, and got a recording a foreign female voice that said, "Customer Care no one is available to answer your call please leave your name and a brief message and I'll call back soon."
These people are starting to tick me off!
KEEPS CALLING ME LEAVES NO MESSAGE. CALLS ME ALL THE TIME.
fingerhunt i think
This number just called me - just got a tone that denotes when a number is out of service. Received two calls yesterday, but the number did not show up, but it had the same tone when I answered.
I called them back and a recording comes on in a foreign accent staying, Thank you for calling Customer Care, sorry we can't take your call, please leave a message and we will return your call
These people call my cell phone 3 times a day and after 9 pm. I'm in Manassas VA
Seemed to be trying to sell me something, but th eperson on the other end had such a thick accent, I couldn't understand what they were saying.
No message left.
They call my house several times a day, once they called every three minutes. You'd think they'd get the hint that some people DO work for a living and on one is home. And when I am home, I don't answer because the caller ID says "private" with the number. I figure if it's important, they'll leave a message. One time someone did leave a message saying he expected a call back today. Right, don't hold your breath waiting for me to call you back, buddy! :)
Calls everyday, over and over. No one answers. Says private name on caller id.
Did not leave a messsage.
Call numerous times a day. Got a call once at 10:30pm. No messages. No one answers when you do pick up.
I get calls from this number 3-4 times a day. No one answers when I say hello. I thought the do not call list prevents telemarketers from calling.
I get 2-3 calls a day. I talked to them once and they tried to sell me a mortgage. I said no way and hung up, but they still call.
I've received several calls from this number, but they have never left a message.
I continue to receive calls from this number and when I answer they hang up. It's so annoying to the point of harrassment.
This number calls at least 8 times a day, regardless of the time.
Calls every day at 8pm. No one there when I answer and no message left when I don't.
No answer. They call all the time. I called them and told them not to call anymore. They still call and know anster.
I receive calls 5-7 times a day from this #. No one there when I have attempted to answer... on return call, a foreign female voice states something about "Hi Customer Care..." and then the recording is unintelligible.

They call 3-4 times per day. They never leave a message, and whenever I answer, no one responds when I say "hello". What is that about????
Called number on 8/30 and got answering machine. Womans voice with a heavy asian accent.
Male voice: Said Hello twice, hung up. We weren't home; answering machine picked up the "hello."
I have no clue who this is but they call me a few times a day.
they call several times a day and leave no message.
