This is a credit card scammer. They also use the number 646-558-5645. Trying to get your correct SSN# and personal info. STOP CALLING!!! I read about these guys using the other number. Same outfit who called 2 days ago. They are calling my damn cell phone.

November 10th, 2009 john d. United Kingdom

They have now started on the UK. Phone call received 3pm 9 Nov. They kept me on phone for 2 hours. Sounded very plausible,said all I needed to pay was £125 each for my wife and I to cover taxes, but it would not be payable until I took up the offer by booking the trip some time in the next 18 months Asked for the first twelve numbers on my bank card. At that point I insisted on getting it in writing first. After some argument, the phone was put down.

October 6th, 2009 Another George United Kingdom

I'm in England and got (for the 4th time in about 10 days) almost exactly the same call (American accent) that George described except: (1) the number was not divulged and (2) when I said "No way I'm giving my credit card number to an unsolicited caller - I don't want to waste your time, but I'm really suspicious of this whole thing - can you please remove me from your list" the guy was quite polite. He told me I needed to get my phone company to put me on the 'international do not call register' but of course that's not how it works - he insisted 'somehow you just need to get onto that register'. I asked him for his boss's phone number but he wouldn't give it. I thanked him for the advice and he hung up. At least it was a lead - but a wrong one unfortunately - Each country like USA and UK have their own national registers but there seems to be no way to opt out of international calls. I really don't know if I should hate the callers - they are surely just doing a job to support their family. But on the other hand I'm disabled and it can sometimes be difficult for me to get to the phone so it is very annoying, especially when it interrupts my evenings which are very precious. Thanks for whoever provided this site - it's good to get this stuff off my chest and to know that I'm not suffering alone!

RE: 727-565-1371
They called my phone today - 9/24/2009 - but I've put the SIT tone at the beginning of my answering machine message - after my message played, there was a brief period of silence, and then a disconnect. The SIT tones will usually send telemarketers and charities packing - Those are the tones the Phone Companies play when you reach a disconnected number. You can get a mess of those messages at payphone-directory.org

I down loaded one with the "wav" extension. Then, using "snd recorder" (C:\WINDOWS\system32\sndrec32.exe) and a computer telephone headset, I edited it to put on my answering machine. Now my machine picks up and you hear the tones, followed by the familiar (in my voice) "The number you have reached - [insert your number here, imitate the way the phone company people say it] is not attended or does not recognize your caller ID. Please wait for the tone and leave a message." - - Family and friends know that you'll pickup when you recognize their number, or they'll leave a message if you're not home - but autodialers will remove your number from their data base.

If that doesn't stop the calls, try this - it's probably illegal, but since the Do-Not-Call folks and the FCC won't do anything about THEM, and THEY won't honor your request to leave them alone, why would the FCC mess with YOU for retaliating?

Most computers today have a fax program - some even have a fax program associated with an answering machine (Faxworks, for Windows 3.1 through Windows 98 was GREAT!). Program it to send a fax to any or all of the numbers revealed on this website. The message should simply tell them to take you off their list. Now, here's the legal gray area - program your computer fax system to send the fax every 15 or 20 seconds until it goes through, or until it tries the number of times you specify - like 99 maybe? Set the "Retry if not answered by" time to something on the order of 10 seconds - that way you won't get billed for long distance charges unless and until a fax machine answers. This will tie up their telephone line (and yours, of course) and they won't be able to call out (I'm talking about the telemarketer who works from home). Naturally, you can shut it off when you want to use your phone - so maybe you'd want to set it to pester them for 99 calls while you are at work.

Good luck.

I just found out call your local telephone service. If you have caller Id, Call Waiting or Call Transfer withAT&T hit star 60 wait for dial tone hit pound key enter number 1-727-565-1371. It blocks their call and sends it to a voice mail with AT&T that says their number is blocked. Try it is worth a try...

September 24th, 2009 SusieQ IL

I keep getting calls from this number several times a day nobody on the line. I called back and get a message that the person calling from this phone number is unavailable. On my caller id it says Florida Call. I am listed with the National No Call List and still get them...

September 5th, 2009 AZGirl

I've been getting calls from this number for weeks now, at least once a day, at different times of the day. Fortunately I have caller ID and don't answer, but it's very annoying to say the least. I too am registered with the National No Call List, but this company ignores the list.

August 24th, 2009 George P6 United Kingdom

Im in England and I got this call from 04074042138 with some American auto recorded voice saying "Congratulations you have won a trip to the Caribbean" "Just press 9 to claim your prize". OK sounds good! so I pressed 9, I am told to "wait a while", so I did, Then a voice spoke asking if I had pressed 7,8,or9.. so I told him "I pressed 9", He says "WOW! you've just won our top prize congratulations", "do you use Visa or Mastercard credit cards", I said "visa" he said "OK go grab your card right now", I said "I do not give out my credit card details over the phone"........He hung up!. What fool would give their credit card details anyway!
I have been on this cruise in 2005 to Nassau it takes just a few hours overnight from Fort Lauderdale and includes a buffet meal and a cheap show there is a casino of course! open after the 3 mile exclusion zone from the US. The trip costs $99.00 per person for port charges and it sails every Mon,Wed,Fri each week from Fort Lauderdale. DONT GET SCAMMED!!! Anyone can buy this trip.

Hey all. I've received calls from 727-565-1371 over and over and finally had a real person on today. I played along with them to get information to pass it on. The company is Vacation Promotions, 6014 US Hwy 9 or 19 North (bad hand writing), Suite 100, New Port Richey, FL 34652. I asked for a phone number in case I got cut off and they gave me their customer support number - 888-808-1814. How this help some of you.

August 5th, 2009 Jessica

Received a call from this number today and it was a representative from RCI travel trying to sell a vacation to Orlando, FL. Look up / google "vacation promotions" on the web for more info on this company.

July 22nd, 2009 zelda

Multiple calls come up with no one on the line. Called Level 3 as suggested and played phone tag. Got an individual who told me to listen to the voice prompts. The system is designed to help Level 3 customers. The rest of us have to complain to our own phone company. The number can't be blocked if you have that service with your phone company. Don't bother calling number back because you get a message saying the number doesn't exist.

March 28th, 2009 Arnold Semmons AZ

They called my cell phone offering some vacation in Florida. I told them it's illegal to telemarket to a cell phone and he responded "it's after 900pm, so you're using your night minutes so you're not paying anything." I told him it's only 6pm in Arizona, so I am paying, and people with prepaid phones don't have free nights and weekend minutes, so they would pay too. I told him not to call me any more and hung up on him.

Call Level 3 Communications customer support at 877-453-8353. I let the automated menu options repeat all night. It does tie up my line and theirs. If everyone did it, their system would fail valid customer and they would contact us for our intentions.

ERG!!! I get this call all of the time. I pick up and no one is on the other line. I makes me very angry. I called back this number and started to record a message of how I was going to call the FBI or another company taht will get them in troublr. I thought maybe they would stop then, but. . . guess what. NOPE! I even got on the 'DO NOT CALL' list for all of these annoying calls! It doesn't even work. It says that the call is from St Peters, FL if that helps. At least I think it is from there.

February 18th, 2009 Dushan29 CA

June 19th, 2008 Chris 01 Australia

Just got a call yesterday from these guys, pre-recorded message telling me i had won a trip to florida, press 9 to connect, operator repeats prize info and asks for my full name, DOB, address, CC info, at which point I end the call. I am reporting this from Australia, yes they are targeting people overseas now, have attempted to report this through phone company and police here but they tell me there is basically nothing they can do. IMHO this is more like an identify theft scam than just a holiday/CC type scam. IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT PROBABLY IS! AND A GENUINE PRIZE WON'T REQUIRE YOUR CREDIT CARD INFO TO AWARD YOU THE PRIZE, IF THEY ALREADY HAD YOUR INFO TO HAVE YOU IN THE DRAW, WHY DO THEY NEED TO CONFIRM IT? THINK ABOUT IT, IF YOU GET ASKED TO CONFRIM YOUR INFO TELL THEM TO TELL YOU WHAT INFO THEY HAVE AND YOU WILL CONFIRM IT FOR THEM, IF THIS WAS A GENUINE PRIZE THEY WOULD HAPPILY DO SO.

The first time the number came up as: 0-000-000-0000 and today it came up as posted by you all. I did a reverse look up, and it is in Nevada, but whenever you try to call it back, it says that the customer is not taking calls at this time! Too bad we couldn't have the same thing programmed into our phones when they call!! What an annoyance this is!!!

Automated machine saying I won a Caribbean vacation and to press 9 to get it. I pressed 9 so I could tell them to remove me from their calling list. I can't believe these people! The person told me that it would take 2 weeks to get removed. I said no way, remove me right away and she started to get really rude. Told me it takes 2 weeks and that she would be calling me everyday just to harass me and then she began to laugh. If anyone gets the name of the telemarketers please make a note and post it here. I wouldn't mind sending them my own promotional gift!

Company says Congratualations, you have won a cruize to the Carribean. After questioning I find out that the cruise is not free, it is at a discounted price, and the cruise leaves from Florida.. Only problem is, you have to get there yourself. Upon checking the cruise prices, I find that this cruise is not even discounted. Cruises from Florida to the Caribean are cheap. Nice scam.

My phone promotions are friendly, we thank the person for their time and see if they need our type of service. We started to get these calls since the new year and I'm tired of it. As soon as I see this number I pick up and hang up in a quick manner. Not only that I recieve phone calls, calling in saying your number is on my call display; They either want the service or not then I keep on going. We do have a DO NOT CALL LIST and we keep on a very close eye on it.

It was cut off at the start because my answering machine picked it up and the pre-recorded message started automatically. I haven't entered any draws, this sounds like a scam to me, probably something like "It's all inclusive, you just pay the tax and send us a cheque for $300" or something like that.

Quick information about the call I received

Pre-recorded advertisement.
Talked to "Donna" asking how they got my number, she said one of three ways;
1. Having "Preferred status" on Visa, Master Card, or American Express
2. Person referred our Name and Number
3. Someone we know attended a Time share presentation

She did not know the name of the computer program which calls us.
Did not know of any "master list" that the calls are generated from.

When I spoke with the supervisor they came on the line with an aggressive "Hello" and would not answer any of my questions, only asking me if I would like to be put on to the Do Not Call list (I thought I've already requested this). They would not provide me with their name either.
Received the call at 1:19pm.

January 31st, 2008 silent AB Canada

CALL 1-800-684-2064 to complain. These are not nice people! Received a call from 1-802-681-4148, won a vacation press 9. Because they are calling a number that is associated with a Lifecall for a frail and elderly parent I generally do hit whatever number and ask to be removed with the explanation that it IS a medical line. Got ANTHONY, asked to please remove the number as it was on a Life call system for medical emergencies. Mr Anthony responded "good, now I will call 4 times a day", at which point I lost it. He then called me retarded, as well as other names while I was asking for a supervisor. I heard what sounded like a transfer click, then I started randomly getting voice mailboxes. He tied up the line for 20 minutes as I could not hang up. Whatever he had done had kept the line busy for 20 minutes. I tried call 1-800-684-2064 which is their actual office and spoke to customer service. Lets hope the gentleman there does not think it is a joke to tie up a Life Call number.

I just got a call from the Vermont telemarketer/maybe telescammer. The company is Level 3 Communications in Bennington Vermont. If you live in Canada, go to Bell.ca and choose to chat with a live person for assistance (they ask for your name and phone number, but they don't need it for this purpose). Ask why they don't have any information on-line for consumers to register their telephone numbers in the Canadian Do Not Call Registry. Bell Canada has been chosen (by the CRTC in December 2007) as the provider of this service. But Bell is, perhaps, too busy trying to make money from providing services to the telemarketers in order for them to comply with the legislation when it comes into force later in 2008. Once again, Bell has forgotten where its bread is buttered: with the consumer. They deserve an earful. Please consider giving it to them.

I have been getting a ton of random calls from the states. So today I picked up the phone and answered it. The recording said I won a trip to the caribbean press 9 so I did. (I didn't know about the jail thing but, my number doesn't allow Long distance so if they tried it they would get no where.) Anyways, some guy came on the phone and said "how are you today?" I said fine, then he said that is good to hear, I see you have been chosen to win a trip to florida, and I said I don't want you to ever phone my number again, that is when I got the big hang up. I don't know anyone in the states and I am in Edmonton.

FOR A BOAT CRUISE...She asked me to pay with a credit card the amount of money ($350) I told the person "Francesca" to "give me $700. and I will send you on a cruise"...as a JOKE...She HUNG-UP. HOW STUPID can some people be with such a LOW IQ.(THIS SITE)...GREAT IDEA TO CORNER THESE IDIOTS!!

People! Once and for all, DO NOT GIVE YOUR CREDIT CARD INFO OR MONEY OF ANY KIND TO PEOPLE WHO WOULD SELL YOU A VACATION... OR ANYTHING!!! Most of the time it is not legit, and you will have lost your money to a bunch of fraudsters.

With all of the legitimate websites out there offering vacations at cut rates, why would you settle for the destination of THEIR CHOICE, anyway??!!

If you want a vacation, go to the honest, advertised, established sites and watch the sales. It will be a better deal, and you will help to stem the flow of harrassment calls, making your home more restful, too!

It's up to us all to stop this. Pass it on.

January 16th, 2008 help ON Canada

I got a call from them this morning, Jan. 16/08. I get a lot of this annoying calls that i've won something. I have a voice recorder and record these unwanted calls. What i do is ask for the person's name, what company they work for and how they got my phone number? They usually tell me that somebody signed me up for whatever they are selling. Then I tell them that it is illegal for someone to sign you up without your permission and that they are a party to this criminal act and that i will contact the police concerning this call. Then they hang up immediately. It really gets the caller upset and I get a good laugh out of it. Use your imagination when you get these annoying calls. The thing is to get them to give you incriminating evidence. I didn't have a chance to do it with these people because I was on the computer talking with my girlfriend. The thing is have fun with these people. Enjoy. P.S. tell them that the call is being taped.

Call was on my answering machine. All I heard was female voice saying \"press 9\". I read somewhere that the \"press 9\" scam is where they can gain access to your phone line to make long distance calls that will show up on your bill. One other time they called and my granddaughter answered. They went into some spiel about winning a prize and asked her to press 9. She was excited and giggling, but fortunately I was in the background yelling \"hang up\", and she did. These peeps are scum.

November 29th, 2007 Andy BC Canada

These people have been calling on and off for a few months to say that I've won a Caribbean cruise. If you "press 9 to talk to a live agent", you get routed to a Florida call center where they put on the high-pressure sales tactics. No matter how many times you ask to be taken out of their database, they will always call you back after a short time.

They appear to be the same company that calls from (727)831-2410 (which is also based in Florida).
