Is This Happening To You?

On behalf of those who have previously retained us, the law firm of Fineberg Gresham is investigating complaints from consumers being harassed with calls and text messages to their cell phones. If you have received calls or text messages to your cell phone by telemarketers or others who did not have your express permission to contact your cell phone or wish to report any complaints regarding this practice, www.stoptelemarketingabuse.com (this will send an email to our office). We are gathering factual information to determine the nature, extent and scope of the problem for those who have retained our law firm. All messages will be held confidential.

What Can You Do to Assist in Our Investigation?

If you have been the victim of this telemarketing abuse, preserve all facts and evidence of the unwanted calls or texts. Save the message.

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
b. press the #4
c. when an operator answers, begin reading anything readily available
d. do not stop until they hang up on you
Repeat this process until you feel better =:[}

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.

September 19th, 2007 Laura

If you're on the National Do Not Call Registry, go to their website and file a complaint.

September 19th, 2007 Jo-z MD

Called yesterday and today at 1:14 PM. I was sleeping both times, so i didnt pick up.

September 13th, 2007 Amy VA

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.

September 13th, 2007 raj

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....

September 12th, 2007 Harvey FL

September 12th, 2007 ScooterPie

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 #.

September 12th, 2007 ScooterPie

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

September 10th, 2007 Annoyed CA

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!!!!

September 9th, 2007 Greg FL

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!

September 8th, 2007 phantombyte FL

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.

September 8th, 2007 phantombyte FL

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

September 7th, 2007 Wendy CA

August 16th, 2007 Bob-Da-Builda

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

August 14th, 2007 Brittany DC

I just called them back & got a live person, but I couldn't understand a word he said.

August 14th, 2007 Brittany DC

I answered to tell them them to stop calling and they just hang up.

August 14th, 2007 Burt CA

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.

August 14th, 2007 Phill

They spoke with an accent

August 13th, 2007 Troy MD

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.

August 13th, 2007 Stacey

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?

August 10th, 2007 RAP2 VA

August 9th, 2007 lindsay

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.

August 9th, 2007 Amanda

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.

August 8th, 2007 Barb MD

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.

August 7th, 2007 jen MD

called several times in the last few days. when i answered and asked who they were and what they wanted they hung up.

August 7th, 2007 JJ PA

heres what I did, I called them back and hung up 5-7 times. stated some financial group
when answering phone.

August 7th, 2007 Kelli PA

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.

August 7th, 2007 Allison

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.

August 6th, 2007 DCCS TX

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!

August 6th, 2007 DCCS TX

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.

August 6th, 2007 Lisa in VA VA

Caller ID said Charlotte NC...

August 4th, 2007 Christopher PA

they call sevral times aday mornings and nights they claim i own them money

August 4th, 2007 Robert PA

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.

August 3rd, 2007 Kevin VA

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.

August 2nd, 2007 Cindy S. PA

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

August 2nd, 2007 Mary PA

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???

August 1st, 2007 pyr8 PA

agree with this post:

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

Styx Infosoft Pvt. Ltd.
5th Floor, GNFC Infotower,
S. G. Road, Bodakdev,
Ahmedabad - 380 054,
Gujarat, India


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)

August 1st, 2007 Neha FL

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.

July 31st, 2007 Deborah

Called many times, leaves no message, hangs up if we answer. No idea who this might be

July 28th, 2007 Jan

In the last few days I have gotten 3 or 4 or more calls a day with no message

July 25th, 2007 Zonk MD

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.

July 25th, 2007 Chris NJ

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.

July 23rd, 2007 T Monaco PA

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

July 23rd, 2007 Linda

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?

July 23rd, 2007 iq316i from pa PA

July 19th, 2007 meuns

call me constantly. no one on end when I rtn. cannot locate who owns the number.

July 19th, 2007 Donna MD

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.

July 18th, 2007 Will

When asked the person indicated he/she was calling from China. Purpose of call was to discuss mortgage. Informed they have an incorrect message.

July 17th, 2007 Dori

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.

July 16th, 2007 Primva WI

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.

July 16th, 2007 Tami PA

did not leave a message, don't know who they are, or how they got my number.

July 15th, 2007 Deborah

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

July 13th, 2007 Jo IA

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

July 12th, 2007 Tom MD

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.

July 10th, 2007 Aija Rabinowitz DC

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.

July 10th, 2007 GRRRRRRRRR-3 PA

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!

July 10th, 2007 GRRRRRRRRR-2 PA

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!!!

July 10th, 2007 GRRRRRRRRRR PA

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!

(704) 800-9978
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.

July 10th, 2007 VJ PA

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?????

July 10th, 2007 Victoria J PA

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.

July 7th, 2007 Anne NY

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?

July 5th, 2007 Stephen PA

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?

July 5th, 2007 James VA

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.

July 3rd, 2007 Tara Reisinger MD

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

June 30th, 2007 Rich

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.

June 29th, 2007 Denise MD

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.

June 28th, 2007 jim seymour NJ

I got a phone call or two also. Answ mach picked up...they hung up. Called back-customer service for a mortgage co.

June 28th, 2007 lori VA

June 27th, 2007 stephanie g PA

they call all the time and its very annoying no clue who they are either but i called back and got nothing

June 27th, 2007 K

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

June 26th, 2007 Puterditz VA

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!!

June 26th, 2007 Peter Suto VA

They call my business number every day and leave no message. Caller ID says "Private Name". Very annoying. Can anything be done?

June 26th, 2007 JC in Baltimore MD

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.

June 25th, 2007 A. CUNNINGHAM

they call several times a day phone clicks twice after answering. No one answers and they never leave a message

June 25th, 2007 al PA

don't know who it is all thatcomes up on caller id is number and city and state

June 22nd, 2007 Kiera

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...

June 22nd, 2007 B VA

Reverse # Search says Global Crossings
No message - Calls several times a day

June 22nd, 2007 Diane VA

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!

June 22nd, 2007 Brett KY

A company calling themselves "Audio mortgage

June 21st, 2007 Not Important

Let's start reporting them to the telephone company. Maybe they can put a stop to this harassment, or take their service away...

June 21st, 2007 Toni Pgh PA PA

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.

June 21st, 2007 George R PA

These calls are getting rediculous

June 20th, 2007 Tom MO

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.

June 20th, 2007 Konetta VA

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!

June 20th, 2007 Gigi

Calls several times a day and never says anything. I've called the number back and it never rings and hangs my phone up.

June 20th, 2007 Tom from UK R8 United Kingdom

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.

June 20th, 2007 Bill Samuel MD

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.

June 20th, 2007 Russell MD

i have no idea who they were, but they had an English accent.

June 19th, 2007 Traci MO

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

June 19th, 2007 Pat from the UK India

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?

June 19th, 2007 Pat from the UK India

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

June 18th, 2007 Angry Guy in PA PA

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.

June 14th, 2007 Barbara CT

They called my cell phone at 1:39 in the morning. Who are these people.

June 13th, 2007 lux CA

they're some dumb people who want to refinance your home, except i live in an apartment.

June 12th, 2007 liz MD

They call & never say anything... then hang up

June 12th, 2007 Sly Fox MD

I wonder if being a call center in India makes them exempt from the Do Not Call list. Anybody know?

June 12th, 2007 Glo NC

Everynight this number calls the same time and says nothing. There is no background noise or even breathing. Its sure annoying.

June 12th, 2007 AGF

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.

June 12th, 2007 leslie VA

Called several times but never leaves a message

June 12th, 2007 Sly Fox MD

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.

June 12th, 2007 randallstown WV

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

June 12th, 2007 MeredithinMD

I will concur with what "daMan" wrote.
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

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.

June 12th, 2007 carter

called back and got 'peter from some financial company'

June 12th, 2007 V in MD

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....

June 12th, 2007 SHODAN MD

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.

June 12th, 2007 Melinda

I have recieved 3 calls so far. When I answer, they hang up.

June 12th, 2007 Jeffrey

I did not recognize the number,I let the answering machine pick it up. All they said was "hello" and hung up.

June 11th, 2007 Charles MD

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.

June 11th, 2007 Justin PA

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..

June 8th, 2007 Wendy VA

Leaving no message.
Pain in the butt these people are.

June 8th, 2007 Jason VA

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)

June 8th, 2007 Joshua PA

said hello and nothing

June 7th, 2007 Jim WA

Who is this?

June 7th, 2007 Chris VA

Calling in Virginia I guess now

June 6th, 2007 Catherine

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.

June 6th, 2007 Britt Leu NC

No VM, no idea who.

June 6th, 2007 Kristie VA

I hate this number no one ever responds and they call almost every hour

June 5th, 2007 BJ

I have no idea who they are.

June 4th, 2007 bob PA

As a first step, reporting them to the Do Not Call Registry.
If they call again, I'll bury them in B.S....

June 4th, 2007 burnette VA

they never say anything when I say hello

June 4th, 2007 Chuck NY

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.

June 2nd, 2007 Randel Casto SC

No Message!

June 1st, 2007 Tone CA

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

May 31st, 2007 Scott Haag VA

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.

May 31st, 2007 Sharon FL

Report them to the Do Not Call Registry. www.donotcall.gov

May 31st, 2007 Kathy

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.

May 29th, 2007 Had Enuff2

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! :-)

May 29th, 2007 Bugged Enuf

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).

May 29th, 2007 Mike PA

I think this is Allied Financial. One of there businesses is debt collections.

May 27th, 2007 S Ali D9 United Kingdom

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 .

May 26th, 2007 Teri MD

The number shows up on my caller id several times a day, but they never leave a message.

May 26th, 2007 LL CO

Came in as "PRIVATE" when I dialed it back, I got a double ring sound and no answer. on 5/25/07 Colorado

May 25th, 2007 Sterling VA

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!

May 25th, 2007 Arcelia PA

There calling my cell phone..I have no idea how they got my number.

May 25th, 2007 Emily NH

Called and didn't leave message. Annoying.

May 24th, 2007 bhovey VA

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.

May 24th, 2007 Victoria PA

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!

May 24th, 2007 jennifer CA

I have had several calls as well...have no idea who it is.

May 23rd, 2007 Sean MD

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.

May 23rd, 2007 Allan Bray

Called my house.. thought it was somebody else, but now have no clue who they are and they still call.

May 23rd, 2007 Marcopolo

Is this number a crank call

May 23rd, 2007 j CA

they just called me and wanted to "re-fince" ;) my home for me. the accent was indian.

May 22nd, 2007 pnsdavid FL

I think those calls are to determine when someone actually answers the phone. That way the real telemarkters can call when someone is home.

May 21st, 2007 debbie PA

call several times a day,when answer phone no one there

May 20th, 2007 eilene

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

they call 3 or 4 times a day no message and all i get is a busy signal when i call back

May 18th, 2007 Nell PA

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.

May 18th, 2007 P.J. DC

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.

May 18th, 2007 diba NJ

Left no message. Mtl, Canada

May 17th, 2007 Joe MD

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.

May 17th, 2007 C3 FL

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.
