seniorcw calls from 4 phone numbers:
Telemarketer / scam
said he was with Identity Crime Watch. About a hour later I got another cal from 303 854 9204 and she said she was with Identity Crime Watch and was in Az.
never leave a message
They identified the caller as "ID Crime watch" 702-359-5611
I've been on the do not call registry since day one of the program.
because I've been at the same number for over 30 years, I get hundreds of scammers, at least two or three per night. I've got call blocking from my phone provider and the little call blocker box you can add number to. It currently has hundreds of numbers stored in it. They just keep spoofing more numbers like (000) 000-0000. I'm am ready to give up the number I've had most of my life. Assholes.
They have called four times in the last 48 hours. No message left.
Decided to answer this call. When they did finally decide to speak I couldn't understand anything she said.
I did not answer the phone because I didn't know who the caller was.
They call at dinner time. Even though I'm signed up on all the DO Not Call lists. They DO NOT heed my requests to take me off their lists. I don't belong to AARP either, but they've probably sold their lists of known seniors. Would love to see them prosecuted for violating the don not call laws, and would love to see AARP lose it's non-profit tax exempt status.
2 calls today from this number - but not because of AARP as others have noted below, because I don't belong to AARP.
Why do people think if the phone rings they must answer it? You have
CID, USE IT! Do you let anyone coming to your door into your home? Of
course not. Wake up people, these are crooks, DO NOT ANSWER when they
call you! They manipulate the CID system so the info is probably fake.
If for some insane reason you must answer it's too late! Soon as you
answer you've told them your number is valid. They sell this info to
other scammers. Pushing a # to 'remove yourself from their list' does
absolutely NOTHING for you. Do NOT call them back!
IF YOU DON'T RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER DON'T ANSWER THE PHONE! WAKE UP!
Stop these calls with Phone Tray Pro - www.phonetray.com
The phone block system the phone company charges you for does NOT
block all the calls Phone Tray Pro does. DIGITONE ($100)(Only blocks
80 #s), TELE ZAPPER, PRO CALL BLOCKER ($50), CALL BLOCKERs Amazon.com
sell etc don't do nearly what Phone Tray Pro does and cost a LOT more!
Don't waste your money on these worthless gadgets. As of 12/16/13 I have
244 #'s, 17 Wild Card #'s and 22 CID names on my PTP Black List that
will never get through again. The DNC doesn't affect scammers.
Don't be so naive. You can report them to the FTC but honestly when
was the last time the federal government ever did anything for you?
Oh I forgot, Obamacare. Speaking of scams!
BTW the Panasonic cordless phone Pluto67 brags about, sold by
Amazon.com, costs more than TWICE what PTP does and does a LOT less!
THIS NUMBER HAS REPEATEDLY RANG MY HOME PHOME ON 12/16/2013, 12/13/2013, 12/12/2013. WHEN YOU ANSWER NO ONE IS THERE AND THEN IT HANGS UP WITHOUT A WORD. I PHONED THE NUMBER BACK AND GOT AN AUTOMATED ANSWERING SERVICE. IT GIVES YOU THE OPTION OF NOT BEING ON THEIR CALLING LIST. HOWEVER, I SELECTED THE OPTION TO REMOVE MY NUMBER AND THE CALLS ARE STILL CONTINUING.
Hey Annoyed in Mass, you are correct. I Just joined AARP this year. May be last time.
Yep keep getting calls from it. I don't answer unless I know who is calling
Three times in three days! No message on machine. In total this month I have received twelve spam calls aimed at Senior Citizens. Thank you AARP for selling my phone number to these bums.
This phone number rang me twice. When I picked up and said hello there was no answer.
This is the seventh call in five days that I have received from different phone numbers in California. All come back as some sort of senior scam. I was stupid enough to join AARP, but I not stupid enough to give you my info. Thanks a lot AARP for selling my info to these scums.
called 12/10/13 2:15 PM. Lots of noise in background (other people talking, obviously a "call center"). Young woman, with what sounded like a "Spanish" accent. I told her to "take this number off your list". We're on the "no call" list, got called anyway!!!!
I don't answer calls unless I recognize the number.
They called twice within 39 minutes. I did not answer, they did not leave message.
called @ 12:15 on 2 December 2013 I am in los angeles county.
Get a couple calls almost every day from this number. We don't answer because we have caller ID and we are also on the do not call list. Scammers!
woman speaking with broken English(sounded like an Indian), trying to tell me she is with Senior Crime Watch. asking for personal info and donations. not on your life, told her this call was being recorded and turned over to the AG's office. there was an immediate disconnection.
Who is this?
Got a call from this number this morning. I have decided to answer these calls even though I know that they are probably scams. I actually talked to a live person ( a woman) that said she was looking for seniors pertaining to identity theft protection (yeah, right). She then asked if I was familiar with identity theft. I said I was and asked her if she was familiar with the Do Not Call list. Dead silence. After three or four "hellos?", I got a dial tone. I will be reporting this phone number on the Do Not Call Registry site.
well @ 12:11pm(NOON) The suckers called again, a woman started out, how are you, I did not wasted any time, I said I am the no call list & have reported you, bam, she hung up! Now, if we have our phones registered, what in the hell good does it do. From my prospective,not a thing, maybe just a way to get phone numbers. She did not have time to hand me a line of bullshit. I should have listened & from now on will & then I am going to have what I can say really quick, which will be 2 words & if you are smart you will know those 2 words. Play with them, ask them questions & let them waste their breath, act all interested & then give them some false info. Two can play @ this game. I called them on my cell & told them NEVER to call my # again & I was very rude. obviously there is no communication. People, watch for people frauding you. It Is going to get worse. But, waste their time, that is the best way to get them back. Be nice,until its time not to be nice! Please play this game with them, I have thought about it& that is better than getting mad & them hanging up or you hanging up. Good luck to all of us who has to deal with this sort of thing, I would NEVER give info or money to NOONE for any cause over the phone or product etc. Please play this game with them!
Offered identity theft service. Poor phone connection w/background noise, non-native English speaker. I'm already on the fed no-call list. Asked to be removed from their list. She hung up.
Got Call, hang up right away!
I AM TIRED OF THESE STUPID CALLS ALWAYS WAKING ME UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELP SOMEONE.
got call soliciting money for senor crime watch. strong philipino accent , sounded like an overseas call. would think that scammers in the philipines would be busy doing something good in the aftermath of the flooding..
Missed call, showed California, on caller ID
I am on the National ''Do Not Call " Registry. But I keep getting unsolicited calls. This is just one among many. When I answer, no one is there.
This number keeps calling Seniorcw on id....I am registered with the do not call list! I do not want unsolicited phone calls! 11-6-13
Received a call at 4:21pm today 11/4/13 from this number paying for privacy????
once again all my callers have a personal ring tone. I do not answer calls from an area code I don't know. What these folks do is when the answering machine hangs up so do they... I am all the do not call list to.. But like most government programs don't work.. LOL
I had good idea the caller was a telemarketer. I pay for my phone service for My benefit. I answered and yelled in mouth piece, "this number is on the do not call list-if you call again I will report you."
A lady called and introduced herself as an employee of some kind of security system company (didn't give a first name). I immediately advised her to take me off of "their" calling list. I was then hung up on. I've done some research (5 minutes), and it seems this scam has been around for some time.
Have had several calls from this number. I finally answered and when they said they were calling about a Senior Crime watch. I told them the number they called was forwarded to me in France, where I now live. Using a Magic Jack I can call my friends and family in the US.
They quickly hung up..
Tell them you don't live in the US or are not a senior citizen and they will quit bugging you.
The person sounded Hispanic and was making sure there was a senior located at this address to receive care that his company was offering. He asked if I was a senior and I told him no. He asked if there was a senior in my home and I told him no again. He said okay and I hung up the phone. I am on the National Do Not Call list but don't understand how they got my number. I guess Verizon stills sells their phone book or is it online now.
I just got a call which I will add to my block list. I will now get no ring but will get a list of blocked calls on my phone.
I have the Panasonic cordless telephone Model kx-tg6842b (2 handsets)
You can block 250 numbers plus kill the one ring that existed on earlier models that only allowed 30 blocked numbers.
The one handset model sells for $70 at Amazon.
Caller left no message, no one was there!
called several times left no message..
Somebody calling for Sandgren(?) senior crime watch. I said I wasn't interested in any crime watch and hung up.
Don't call me
Tel No: 720-452-5598
Caller ID: USLIFECARE
Probable SCAM ARTISTs...
robo call : went to v-mail : said 'will be only call, press 1 to speak to agent' * sec dead air
san francisco/north bay area, didn't answer. left no message
Left no message
Calls frequently--leaves no message. Two calls today within minutes!
When I answered a bored sounding lady said "Hello. This is Senior Care Center". I immediately told her there were no senior citizens here, then asked her to remove our number from their call list. Received a call yesterday, that I didn't answer, from the same number, but the name on my phone said USLIFECARE and no message was left.
They did not leave a message on answering machine; I believe they are a telemarketer selling life alert services.
Just called and hung up several times in a row before I could even attempt to answer.
Second call in several days....Pick up the phone and silence.
