Traded my Verizon voicemail for caller ID and I bought a phone that has it's own digital voicemail. Each day I have a relentless number of calls like this -- from far away area codes, for no reason, and just robo-messages if you answer the phone.

THERE OUGHTA BE A LAW... that you cannot defraud by displaying fake phone numbers, and that you have to publish your contact information (and maybe a license number) when you make solicitations by phone or GO TO PRISON.

A Do-Not-Call-violating robocall saying I'd receive a cruise to the Bahamas if I answered a survey.

This scum of the earth called my cell phone, I rejected the call, some people will do anything illegal!

March 15th, 2014   MA

I received call no one on the line. I called back with my number hidden and I got a message saying mailbox full for spanky spank????
I received a call exactly one month ago from same area 404 276 6914 different number. Called back, same mailbox full message but the name this time was bitch. It appears there is another sicko out there, hopefully the investigation that is in motion will be identifying this person soon.

A year ago, we got rid of our landline because of harassing telemarketers. Recently we had it reinstalled, making it unlisted. How in the world did they get our new number so quick? We have to pay each month to keep our number restricted.

December 12th, 2013 notsojolly CA

per another listing this is the "you've won a cruise" scammer who is phishing for your identifying info. They just started spoofing on this number and that site has 3 pages of listings all from 12/12... didn't answer, no message, added to junk spam no ring list.

December 12th, 2013 Me 2 TN

Very helpful Frank K. I never found out who they are but I am sure it could have been one of those cruise calls.

December 12th, 2013 Frank K NY

I just saw on another website that this is to win a free Bahama cruise.

December 12th, 2013 me 2 TN

I just received a call from this number as well and when I picked it up, there was no one there and they hung up. I usually don't pick up unknown numbers either and I was just getting ready to call someone so I answered it without even realizing it.

December 12th, 2013 me OK

I usually dont answer unknown numbers but for some reason did this time and when I picked up there was no one there and then they hung up.

November 12th, 2013 Westley CA

Here is Floyd's comment for a similar caller's phone number that is applicable for this phone number; The amount of calls I was getting was SO unreasonable. Multiple times a day for almost a week. A couple of days ago I searched and found a do not call service at 866-246-7196 that helped me to stop the calls. They said they provide this service to a small number of companies who call consumers that want to want to minimize complaints and save time not calling people who don't want to be called. Sounded good to me so I gave the caller's phone number which they verified on their list and added my receiving phone number to the do not call list.

November 8th, 2013 Didi Martin TN

This person called about 11/7/2013. I don't know the person or the number, so I know it's likely to be a telemarketer or a con and did not answer. If it was someone who really needed to talk to me, they would leave a message. No message left on my recorder. They hung up when they got the recorder. Probably a telemarketer.

September 12th, 2013 Jake AZ

I've had calls from this number for the past week, I am on the DNC registry yet the calls still happen. I don't think these people care about the registry anymore they know what the fine is and about how often someone will actually take the time to turn them in. It is all the cost of doing business, and since so few follow through and turn them in their cost of doing buisness is very low.

This number calls constantly, and never leaves a message. Telemarketers Frank Fulco or Jack Heath from a Houston company called Guttermaxx.

December 10th, 2012 Larry MD

This number calls me twice per day for the past 4 weeks.

December 4th, 2012 Matt Bieneman MD

Caller ID said "Unknown name". The caller claimed to represent a company called "Senior Emergency Care" and is selling an "emergency medical alert system" device and service called "Senior Medical Advisory" The caller refused to give the phone number of the company. The caller refused to give the address of the company. Then the extremely rude caller hung up on me. This same scammer has now called four times in 11 days.

December 2nd, 2012 G.S. MD

This number called twice in a week. Didn't answer it.

November 29th, 2012 Matt Bieneman MD

This is some kind of "emergency medical alert system" scam for "senior citizens". They have called three times this month.

November 28th, 2012 Carol M from TX TX

These people call me constantly from 8a.m. until 10p.m. They will not speak to my answering machine. The first time I said Hello, they started talking in some foriegn langauage I did not recognize (not Spanish, not German, Not French, not any known oriental langauge). Both I & my answering machine speak English. I have repeatedly answered the phone & told them to quit calling me. They don't listen. They have called as many as 4 times in 5 minutes. I have no outstanding debts. I notice some people say they are trying to collect money from them. I have called the phone company (AT&T) and the only thing they will offer to do is sell me a more expensive plan so I can block calls!!!!!!

(410) 514-6266

November 23rd, 2012 CZ MD

Listened through, it seemed to be " senior emergency care. ". They wouldn't give me their address, but when I said I needed it for the lawsuit I was preparing they put me on their DNC list and hung up.

Go figure. So how can we sue them for violating the Federal DNC?

This is a real nightmare , they keep calling 10-12 times a day, non-stop

November 8th, 2012 Kay Cowell KS

I received several calls from this number and when I answered there was no one on the other end. I finally decided to call back today and was told it was Sansa. I asked to have my number removed from their call list and was told " ok we will do that , thank you" and they promptly hung up. I called back to let them know that I was not given time to give them the phone number I wanted removed, she said " oh we have the number when you call in". I explained that I had my home number forwarded to my cell number and needed them to take that number off, she seemed very confused and then finally asked for the other phone number. I have serious doubts about whether this will end the calls!

Spammers called my cellphone which I didn't answer. Caller ID showed "No name" I added spammers to call reject but most likely these jerks get another spoofed number right away.
Aha! I just called that number back and got a recording stating "This is Verizon wireless, the number you are calling has been changed, disconnected, and is no longer in service."
Funny, when I did a reverse number check, that number appeared to be a land line in Washington!
I think the phone companies who are enabling these harassing pesky spammers should also be held accountable.
Someone is selling our cell phone numbers, as well as landline numbers to these pond scum jerks!

September 20th, 2012 unknown CT

they call about twice a day

September 19th, 2012 Resident47 RI

Mr. Huerta, do you see the huge volume of complaints in this thread in a few days' time? Do you think a scammer is coming back here every day to read this, or cares about what you ''don't appreciate''? No caller, legitimate or not, can somehow divine your ''private number'' from an anonymous comment.

These forums are for call recipients to share their experience and optionally offer advice. They are *NOT* direct open channels to the phone bank boiler rooms we comment upon. The magic phrase you want for salesmen (who will listen) is ''Place my number *on* your Do Not Call list''.

See if you're free boarding passes for an all inclusive cruise to Nassau, Bahamas in exchange for your answers to 10 questions and we need some opinion poll. The process is automated, just press the keys on your telephone keypad for your ass how you will receive 2 free boarding passes for an all inclusive cruise to Nassau, Bahamas. When you're finished. This process only takes a bit press 1 to start the automated survey and receive 2 complimentary cruise passes. Don't miss the vote press one. Now we're going to be removed on.

September 19th, 2012 WD TX

Caller did not leave a message, when I tried returning the call a recording said welcome to verizon wireless the number you dialed has been changed disconnected or no longer in service. The call was made to my phone about 30 minutes before I called the number back and got this recording. I did try to call several times and got the same message after the phone started ringing. At one time I got a fast busy signal.

September 19th, 2012 Pete CA

Called this number back from a land line, got the Verizon "This number has been disconnected" msg.

Just got a call from 253-254-3354 on my cell phone. Didn't pick it up. If this is a telemarketer, it's one without regard for laws, since cold telemarketing calls to cell phones are illegal.

September 18th, 2012 sick of callers KS

Called today, just now. Left no message. If I do not know you and you do not leave a detailed message, then I will just assume you are a scammer.

If you are not a scammer, then leave a detailed message. It is that simple.

Legitimate businesses leave detailed messages, imho.

September 18th, 2012 Allie NE

I got mine a 1:34. Creepy!!!

September 18th, 2012 Cherryl Walker

When the phone rings, we have all been conditioned to jump like crazy to answer it. The call might be important! That is why we end up picking up robo-calls and the like. We need to condition ourselves to a different response to the ringing phone. How? Get Caller ID if you don't have it already. When the phone rings, before you pick it up, pause and look at the ID display. If you don't recognize the name or number, don't answer the call! Let the call ring itself out.

From your missed call log, afterwards you may want to copy down the contact information, and then post it to whocalled.us or other similar sites. Then, post a report to the FTC/FCC/DNC about the call as well

But the main guideline has to be: If you don't recognize the name or the number, do not answer the call!

September 18th, 2012 Kevin KY

Received a call @ 2:10pm Eastern time. Didn't leave a message.

September 18th, 2012 Jessie NJ

Got a call this morning again, this time i called back but when it answer at the other end it says " this number is not a working number". that means they are using a routing number so they can not be reach. My advice just don't answer the phone when you are not sure who is calling. there are lots of telemarketing calls now a days because of the phone company they release or maybe sell our numbers to the telemarketers to make money, who else knows our number, there is no phone directory for cell phones....am i right?

This is the second time I am getting a call from this number on my cellphone while I am at work. I don't answer calls from unrecognized numbers at all. Don't know how they got my cell number because I have a pre-paid phone because i am not a big cellphone user. Hope this is the last one I'm getting.

September 17th, 2012 Elizabeth

I got a call from 253-254-3354 on my cell, but I didn't answer cuz I don't answer number from those I don't recognize let alone from numbers I don't know. My opinion is that these numbers should be blocked from randomly trying to call people let alone before 10am. Well hopefully these calls will stop!

September 17th, 2012 E KY

September 16th, 2012 e NJ

It's so annoying to receive unknown calls on the regular basis. I never answer unknown phone numbers. No message left on my voice mail. This shows is telemarketing calling.

September 15th, 2012 Straight Talk VA

Scammers have been making phone calls claiming to represent the National Do Not Call Registry. The calls claim to provide an opportunity to sign up for the Registry. These calls are not coming from the Registry or the Federal Trade Commission, and you should not respond to these calls. To add your number to the Registry you can call 888-382-1222 from the phone you wish to register, or go click on “Register a Phone Number” in the left column of this page.

Your registration will not expire. Telephone numbers placed on the National Do Not Call Registry will remain on it permanently due to the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007, which became law in February 2008. Read more about it at www.ftc.gov

Click Here to Register Now WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT

The National Do Not Call Registry gives you a choice about whether to receive telemarketing calls at home. Most telemarketers should not call your number once it has been on the registry for 31 days. If they do, you can file a complaint at this Website. You can register your home or mobile phone for free.

September 15th, 2012 Straight Talk VA

This number was received on my cell phone. I did not recogize this number and did not answer.

September 15th, 2012 Cherryl Walker

If the caller ID showed a name like Washington, then you got hit by Pacific Telecom Communications Group. Throughout the entire range of websites that collect complaints about spam phone calls, the story is becoming clearer and clearer. Pacific is a front operation that connects overseas boiler room phone banks that are doing work for spam-creating agencies. Pacific spoofs numbers from which the calls presumably come. Pacific also may be the actual owner of the machine that has the "credit services" recordings from 2006 that were made by actresses who posed verbally as Rachel and her crew.

What is most disturbing is that people have posted pages of information about Pacific, and have hoped that other people who are as angry as they are will use that information to fight back. What is apparent is that despite all of the sites and links being listed, nothing effective is being done by the FCC and its associates to put an end to Pacific's meddling. As we all know, when someone is getting away with a major scam, they have friends in high places who are making money from the whole operation.

In brief, where crooks are making money, the average citizen appears not to stand a chance. However, these powers in high places are in cahoots with elected officials, if not being actual elected officials themselves. Vote these scumbags out of office! That is the greatest strength that consumers have -- and the crooks know it.

I received a call from this number on my cell phone. No one spoke when I answered. I have tried to call it twice now, and it goes straight to a busy signal.

I want to shoot that captain and his auto dialer!!! That and Rachel from credit card services. How do these spammers get our cell numbers and waste our cell phone minutes!

September 15th, 2012 Joy WA

I just got a call from this number, there was total silence when I first answered, then a dial tone, then it sounded like someone was trying to talk, but since I had heard silence and then the dial tone, I hung up before I could hear what they said. I am curious as to who it was though. Oh well!

Received this call on my cell phone, which I don't give out too often. Probably a telemarketer from Verizon, but I'm not sure. Hate these calls!

I've been receiving the cruse calls for a wile now. For the comment below that’s what it looks like this was. They are annoying but tolerable.

Calling the number back gives me a double busy. This tells me that this number is part of some group that cannot receive. Most probably a telemarketer.

Called my cell "No Name" 1-253-254-3354. I did not answer an un-ID'd caller - left no message. Have had multiple calls of similar source (described with - boat whistle - "this is your Captain..." - etc.from Sea-Tac on cell and land line - all D/N Call-listed - over past 6 months. A nuisance, likely illegal.

Jay, there can be only two reasons for collectors to call. They think you either owe a debt or can help flush out someone else who may owe a debt. ''Why they keep calling'' is because legally they can until you confront them directly. I've already discussed the best way to respond as a ''not me'' case like yourself my comment straight behind yours.

June 8th, 2012 Jean IL

They call every morning between 8:00 & 8:30. It's like an unwanted wake-up call.

May 22nd, 2012 jay IL

i don't have a capital one account and never did; don't know why they keep calling but whoever said they're aggressive is right they're a##holes who don't even know who there calling;reason may be people sometimes say their not the person but i'm definetly not who there looking for just recieved this number months ago and hasn't

Left voice mail offering a "free" security system. OK if it is free why not just go ahead and sent it to me? Why call?

Nice touch: the voice mail said press something to be put on their do not call list... which of course pressing that number while listening to voice mail accomplishes nothing.

I have an idea! Why not put EVERYBODY on your do not call list? Anyone wants your junk they can find you. Deal?

April 16th, 2012 irratated

4/16/2012 This number is World Financial and they are the bank that represents my Maurices Credit Card. I am literally (due to some unfortunate circumstances)well, my invoice was due on 3/27/2012 and they have called my phone at least 10 to 15 times a day and it does not matter what time it is. The phone starts at 8am and doesn't stop until around 11pm. I receive calls from 614-212-7553/614-212-7504/614-729-6813, 913-563-5521/913-563-5503, 303-255-5083/303-255-5040. Now all of these numbers call at least 10 to 15 times individually. This is absolutely crazy. I have already paid my bill but these people started calling my home even before the bill was due. I really don't think it's worth having a credit card that is going to call your home before the bill is due. To call so many times, I am glad that I do not have any kids at home to answer the phone.

World Financial keeps calling me, atleast three to fours times a day.

Jennifer: Your issue has been echoed in other threads for collectors and junk callers. Every recycled phone number drags behind it the flotsam of former owners. Skip tracers are watching various databases and testing dead ends all the time for signs of life from their prey. You are not the first to report that the calls begin soon after mobile device activation, sometimes within minutes.

One point I've not pressed in this thread is that one should not rely on verbal demands to stop calls for strangers. Both federal law and the workplace culture of the high volume collectors permit them to assume you're a liar and keep calling. Turn up your volume on paper. It's called a ''cease-comm'' for short, and it is best sent USPS Certified with a return card. The recipient risks a lawsuit from you if your orders are ignored. You may already be due some payback if you can prove abusive tactics or foul words were used in an effort to collect debt. You might get some legal traction from a harassing or annoying call pattern as well.

Tamara: Yours is another very common issue the catcallers and collection trolls never accept as true. Crap One and lenders like it are primarily in the business of tricking people into digging the deepest debt hole possible, then refusing to send down any rope when help is needed most, laying blame entirely on the debtor. Their profits come from delinquency and not ''responsible behavior''.

With her account ripe for slaughter, your mom has run out of options and was forced to default. Our corpo-friendly ''rocket docket'' judges don't see it that way, and really can't in the face of contracts weighted heavily in the lenders' favor. A frequent plaintiff on the court calendars, Capital One will gleefully get her sued, adding greater burden to shrinking resources and possibly rising medical debt. All of this mess can be averted if its favorite attack dogs like Allied Interstate are swatted across the nose soon enough. Since your mother is in a strategic default, you must continue thinking strategically and raise disputes on paper as the FTC advises when collectors call.

One thing I missed back in September was Tony's claim that AI ''identified themselves'' as the original creditor, if I read his clumsy sentence correctly. That kind of deception is not unheard of from Allied Interstate and other large debt buyers and collectors. It's exactly the sort of thing to watch for as the annoying calls pour in, illegal practices which can help damage the opposition when you go to court, either to defend or prosecute.

Learn how to exercise your FDCPA rights as an alleged debtor at FTC-dot-gov. See also if your state laws are stronger.

March 25th, 2012 Tamara B

My mother does have an account with Capital One but got behind after she retired because she had several heart attacks. We tried to keep up but it became impossible after they kept adding late charges and overage charges again and again. We asked them if they would stop adding charges so we could catch up and pay them off but they wouldn't do it so we just had to ignore them in favor of paying for things we could catch up on.

To all who say to "Pay your bills and quit complaining". I just got a new cell phone and number and they started as soon as I got the phone charged up 3 days ago. These calls aren't for me. Sometimes it is an innocent person getting harassed because someone didn't pay their bills. I will be trying to get off of their dialing list as none of these calls are for me or anyone in my household. I don't want some collection agency calling my phone all day long. I have already called 2 different places today to tell them that they have the wrong number and they said to expect other callers from what they were seeing with these peoples account. SO I now have to do a lot of foot work just to have a phone that doesn't ring every 5 minutes.

September 25th, 2011 Resident47 RI

Victim: I also advocate individual action over waiting for a rescuer. However, we can't ''get a lawyer and sue them'' if we take your contradictory advice of blocking and ignoring collection calls. Either we gather evidence of violations and deal with the problem directly, or we huddle in a trench and hope the shelling stops.

A high volume collector like AI has many phone numbers to throw at your few, and their autodialers don't need coffee breaks or sick days. Sooner or later they will misuse their favored weapon, the telephone, and they will hand over legal ammo to fire against them. This does not mean every call must be answered, but everything they say and do should be monitored and studied carefully, then documented. That's a more constructive place to put one's frustration than rants against elected officials and regulatory process.

September 21st, 2011 Victim FL

You are fools if you think the FTC and the Do Not Call program accepts indivudal complaints. It is a joke they play on us. Get a lawyer and sue them. Your corrupt congressman get his election contributions from these collection agencies so they will ignore anything you say. first of all you need to know who allows this type of treatment. Yes it is your congressman who voted to allow this. Call them and they say they can't do anythong. Which is a lie, they just want their election contributions. I email call my congressman regularly. Tell them you will not vote for them again and will pass the word around. The Do Not Call list is for telemarketers only. And as I said they do not investigate individual complaints nor does the FTC. I know they have forms to fill out. But that is trick and of no use. If congress is against you you do not have a chance. They make the laws. I get 70 to 80 calls a month from debt collectors. I owe no one any money and never have. They still continue to call. Never answer the phone or call them back. Buy phones with call block feaTURES AND SWITCH TO PHONE COMPANIES THAT HAVE CALL BLOCK. some cell phones allow you to select a separte ring for an individual. Select silent mode yfor these callers.

They call both my house and cellphone all hours, about 20 times a day. Only one time they identified themselves from capital one. I told them I dont have any account with them and asked them to stop calling. It still keeps going. I just filed with the FTC and am going to see about call blocking on both numbers. After reading this, am hoping that this company allied interstate is taken down hard for their illegal activities.

Here one for you on WFNNB. My account is 0. The merchandise I purchased is paid for. A card protection fee of 12.00 was put on my card. I paid it a couple of three times. I decided to cancel. I called the company ask them to cancel they assured me it would be taken care of. NOT. I wrote a letter. I did receive a letter back stating that was not them charging my account 12.00. I called back asked them to cease charging my account (the entity hitting my account) they said they would, NOT. Mind you WFNNB continues to call me and has turned me over to the credit bureau for non-payment. These people do not know how to conduct business. I have excellent pay history with Bealls, 0 balance. This is regardin a Palais Royal card. I wrote a letter to close the account and they are hammering my phones with different numbers. Total huge amt owed $62.00 they are paying more in long distance calls.

These idiots will call me 4 or 5 times a day. They will not answer the phone when I say hello. My husband finally answered and they went into a speal about how I signed up for their book club which is a bunch of BS. They went on to tell him that he can order books under my name and charge them to my account. When he said that what they were doing was illegal she told him that anyone can use my account to order books and charge them. They didn't even have to have my CC to do it. I have never signed up for any book clubs with them or anyone else in that fact. These people are scammers. They have refused to honor the do not call list that they offer to put you on.

June 14th, 2011 tmac MI

Caller doesn't say anything but calls come 3 - 4 times a day for last week. Only once stayed on line long enough to go to voice mail. Still no actual message left,,only computer noise in background.
I have a Bealls card with WFNNB,,,but I'm not late with payments or ever been in collection.

I answer the phone, clearly say "Hello" but there is never no response. I let it go to voice mail to see if they would leave a message,,but still no attempt to identify themselves or ask for anyone.

The worst thing you can do is let them know that they're winning. All they need to do is search for their own phone number here and read your message, and they'll call you even more. Don't let them know they're getting to you.

April 3rd, 2011 Kim CT

These people are HORRIBLE!! I understand it is their job to do collections, don't get me wrong one bit. But to call my phone from 3 different numbers 10-15 times a day EACH number, never leaving a message, never a human on the other end, it's getting to be harassment. Yes I know I owe money, yes I know my account is maxed out, obviously, but when you go from a 2 income household to your husband losing his job and you're now down to one person working a part time job that the hours flex so much that it's hard to even pay rent and utilities, guess what, rent and utilities come first before ANY credit card.

National DNC lists do not apply to anyone you have done business with (i.e. book clubs, dvd clubs etc.). All you have to do is politely ask the caller to place you on their do not call list. They are then required to do so. Keep in mind, it may take about a month for your number to permanently release from their records.

You don't need a valid debt or a derogatory trade line on your credit reports to be hassled by debt collectors. They call third parties to alleged debtors all the time for permitted skip tracing purposes, or at times pretending it's a trace to annoy and shame the intended target. When skip tracing, debt collectors must answer to privacy regs within the FDCPA, hence the obfuscation. Of course, being shadowy works in their favor to make call targets anxious.
