The phone is ringing, and I don't recognize the number, All Caller ID says is, "NAME UNAVAILABLE".
Please help me figure out who is calling and what they want

Call came in on my cell phone. Don't know anyone in Antioch!!! If they call back, I will report to FCC.gov
under wireless complaint. My cell phone is not answered if UNKNOWN comes up with a possibly spoofed number.
I wish businesses would quit sharing phone lists, I think that is why numbers are called by strangers looking
I answered but nobody was there. They must be collecting data on active phone numbers. Should be considered spam or phishing.
I suspect this is scamming phone call as the area code 582 is not yet an assigned number. It is scheduled to be assigned to part of the current 814 area code in Pennsylvania, but that has not been instituted yet. I didn't answer the call. My voice mail picked it up, but no message was left. I checked on other web sites and it seems to be a telemarketing call regarding credit card rates. How can there be a call from an area code that is not yet in service? SCAM!
You got all your wishes at least once in November 2011, Jimmy. Several other credit reprice scammers have been smacked in FTC civil actions since December 2009.
Woman found guilty in $25 million telemarketing scam
Jury Convicts Woman In $25 Million Nationwide Telemarketing Fraud Scheme
These bottom feeders need to be put out of business permanently...they ignore the do not call list...and call anyway. I do feel sorry for some of the people calling...they probably are just trying to earn a living...but the companies....need to be fined big time, shut down, and some of the executives put in jail...
The name of this company should be changed from "Card Services" to "Bunch of Cunts, Inc." because that's what they are; all they end up doing is clogging up my caller ID list.
The Do Not Call registry seems to be worthless. I am SO sick of such calls.
Another robo call (Illegal in Indiana!) from Card services...Racheal has been replaced by Ann. I hit 9 & Christopher Benning came on. When I asked what company, he said card services would I like to lower my rates. Then I said I don't understand what card or what company, he hung up on me. Figured I could string him out & waste his time like he wasted mine by calling me.
Again - I have to stop my work for this (?????)! Offers from companies I don't know!
I am on the do not call list.
Being on the do not call list seems to help with reputable merchants, but not these card services people.
they call and never leave a message, don't know who they are
Received this call about 9:10 am - no message.
The phone call comes in on a few different numbers, it's always the sound of phones & cash registers, then a woman's voice (in Spanish) tells me I've won $1,000 and to press 1 to claim my prize. We get this call 2-3 times a day - This is a business landline they're calline. I've pressed 1 before - reached an operator, and asked (in Spanish) to take me off the list, and I got hung up on. They JUST called again - new # 701-734-8989.
(304)981-2335. Its not a debit collector. It is a scam. My mother-in-law got scammed. It is a travel company out of Miami,Fl.. Anybody can obtain an out of state number. That way you can't trace them back. I have done a lot of check around for the last week. They target The Spanish community. My mother-in-law is Spanish. So they call, A recording come on tells her "Cha-Ching.. you have won $1000".
She says hello then they answer, they tell her she has won. All they would need is her credit card number to deposit the money in to her account. Now most people would have told them to kiss there a**, but she didn't. She should have none better, but what can you say. Pisses me off they target the spanish community, and that alot of people really do think there getting something for free. I check with her bank and sure enough they took $299.99 out. They gave me the the name and number of the company. Millennium Travel 1-888-440-5778 was that company. I call them, Talk to someone named Matt he told me they have sub company's that work for them. The company that did the trans. was Mega Travel Discovery Market AKA Travel One Network 1-888-593-8998. I called them and sure enough this was the company. If you search the net about this company, you will see there is a long line of complaints on them. but hey don't take my word for it check it out for yourself.
Received a call from this number on my cell phone on November 2 at 7:14 PM. I ignored it because there was no caller ID, no voice mail was left.

Calls / no message
I have received lots of calls on my cell from this number. If I answer, it is a recorded voice in Spanish. I wish there were a way they would stop this!!
CALLS ME LIKE EVERY OTHER DAY AND NEVER LEAVES A MESSAGE VERY INCONVENIENT NEVER ANSWERED BECAUSE IT WAS A BOGUS CALL ANYWAY
I'm in Texas and this number called my cell phone at 4:10pm CST today (11/2/10). When I answered I could not understand what the person was saying. All I knew was that they were speaking in Spanish. I'm going to report it to the FCC. I encourage everyone else to do the same.
we missed the cell call, we called the number back and it was busy ... assuming it was a spammer after looking on this site.
called my cell; single tone, then hangup
You're in America now; Speak American!!
Message in Spanish. It said that I've won $1,000 and to press "1" to claim it. I did not. The call dropped after 22 seconds.
These fools called my phone at 9am and when I answered it was a message in spanish! Since I am pregnant and was exhaustingly sleepy, I did not bother translating. I am sick of these calls to my cell phone! This should be classified as harassment and therefore be illegal!!!!
My mother in-law got a call from this number to. The cash register machine "cha-ching" speaking Spanish saying you have won $1000 dollars. My mother in-law is Spanish and they tell her she has won a trip to Disney Land, and all they need to do is deposit the money in to her account. "agggg". My Mother in-law........ what can I say she is gullible. So they ask for her credit card number and of course thinking she getting something for free.....DID. this was Saturday 30th at 10:00 a.m.. I didn't find out tell Saturday night. So I shut down the card. Traced the number and the only thing I found is it was out of West Virgina. So these morning I call the bank and sure enough they took $299.99 out of her account. So I said where did it go. answer is Mega Travel Discovery Market. Then today out of nowhere they called my phone, same as she had describer "Cha-Ching" in Spanish saying you have won $1000, but when I tried talking to them the quickly hang up. This time I call them back with the GOOD number and chewed there a** out. When I finally got to talk with someone who could speak English of course. I got this number throw my bank,when they did the transaction. Spanish speaking number is 1-888-593-8998 Mega Travel Discovery Market. English speaking number is 1-888-440-5778 Millennium Travel. Both of these numbers are out of Florida. This sh** is getting old. Sorry 4 the Lang. I just pi**off. Hope you rip them a new one. hope this helps
This number just called my cell too, didn't get to it in time to answer. After finding this site, I'm glad I didn't!

I got a call today (11-01-10 at 5:48pm) I didn't answer, and they didn't leave a message. Tried calling it back thinking it was an out-of-state relative, and it said "All circuits are busy, please try your call again"

They keep calling, but no message and when I tried to call the number thinkng it was a buddy of mine in the military it's not a valid number! Urg! I m glad this websites here!

www.PhoneTray.com If you have a computer, try this FREE software. It logs incoming phone calls and you can program that phone number to NOT RING if it calls again (and again and again). I have used it for over a year. It's worth the bit of time it takes to NOT HEAR the phone ring so much. You may hear a blip of one ring as the program “intercepts” the call, but not your usual number of rings. You must have Caller ID on your phone service for the program to work.

This number called and I didn't pick up. I don't answer if I don't recognize the number. I searched the web and found out it some spam in Spanish Reported the Beaner caller to "dontcallme.gov". Probably illegals phishing for identity theft.

I like it so much,
I want to say thanks!,
Said unknown. We check for these when we aren't home so don't know what they might be about
(860)493-0200 is then telephone number generated for the Connecticut State University System office used for outgoing calls only. Your call originated from either the Connecticut Distance Learning Consortium, CharterOak State College, Central Connecticut State University, Eastern Connecticut State University, Southern Connecticut State University, or Western Connecticut State University.
For all those people who are getting these annoying calls, please think about doing the following 1. STOP ANSWERING THE PHONE FOR EVERY CALL. SCREEN YOUR CALLS. Most of us have caller ID, and if you don't recognize the phone number, don't answer. 2. Make a note of every time these scammers call and register EVERY ONE of those phone calls with the FTC. If they are inundated with complaints, perhaps they'll do something (although I heard Sen Schumer from NY was trying). And if you can't stand it anymore, F$%^&ng curse your head off after pushing "1" and getting a live person. It may not help but it may make you feel a lot better! (After all-if they're trying to scam you, are they really going to call the police about you harassing them??
Called the number back, got through the promptor, a man finally answered and I asked what the name of his company was, he said "Account Services." I asked him to put my # on his Do Not Call list and he replied "No" and promptly hung up on me.
These scammers are very dangerous they use every trick in the book to steal your identity
call was 9:51 a.m. pressed one. man answered saying account services did you get a call from us today? then i asked who they were and they hung up.
Same as others. I pressed 1 to talk to a person. Didn't even get to finish saying that I was reporting them before they hung up on me
I got this call at 9:20 a.m. number on caller ID but no name. The area code indicates Pensacola, Fla.
For about the 10th time I get (on my answering machine) "this is my last chance.....". Sure wish it was! This call came at 7:30am.
Got a call from this number. Same story as everyone else. When I got a hold of a "real" Rep and pressed him for a Company Name, he would only respond with "I am from account services and can lower your interest rates on your Visa". When I asked for which bank, he hung up.
I like Ruff's comment below.
I think I am going to try and string them along with some story about my 4-5 credit cards and how i have $20-$30 K in debt and REALLY need their help.
See how helpful they can be and waste as much time with them as possible.
My parents received a call from this number. Does anyone know who it is?
I have been bugged by this number off and on for weeks. The last time, I picked up the phone and said rather abruptly "Give it up, Stupid!!!!!!" and hung up. I know it didn't do any good on their end, but I felt better...LOL. I did call back later, as I often do (I have privacy on my phone so my number does not show when calling) and I got the little signal that we get when an auto operator responds - and a voice said "This is not a working number" (in a definitely non-American female voice. That message came through twice - I continued to hang on (I can be a pain at times just like they are) - and then the voice said "385" and then a dial tone. I think even that was phoney. Wish these people would get a real job.
what good is the national do not call list??
I filed a complaint with the FCC. Nothing was done. All I got for my effort was a copy of my complaint. Can we sue the phone company that operates that area code? I have tried calling some of the other numbers that this outfit uses and sometimes after the "Out of service" recording, you get a recording in French. Does this indicate they operate out of Quebec or Montreal?
If you are on the DoNotCall Registry, you can file a complaint here: complaints.donotcall.gov
The more of us who complain, the more likely they are to be investigated.
(850) 386-1643 is another one of the "This is the last time to lower your credit card rates" ripoff calls. So much of the do not call list.
What part of the No-Call Registry don't these people understand? And how are they getting around it for this long. This is annoying.
The call came in at 2:15 pm, May 4, 2009. caller ID: Unknown Name 850-386-1643. When I answered got the recorded message about last chance to lower credit card rates. I pressed '1' and a female asked 'did you press '1' to lower your credit card rates?' I said "may I have your managers name please ?" She said 'sure' and after 30 seconds the dial tone . I have gotten this call repeatedly 20+ over the last 4 weeks and have asked repeatedly for my number to be removed. Guess I'll go do www.donotcall.gov and file yet another complaint. Think I'll also contact my state attorney general also. If I knew "people" close to their business, they would be shut down for good after I got thru with them.
I am on the donot Call registry. I want these callers reported.
These people continue to call, sometimes leaving a message to return their call immediately because "it is urgent that we speak to you concerning your student loan". We have never had a student loan. I wouldn't advise calling them back to "correct" their information, because that allows them to claim that you contacted them and so they are not bound by any Do Not Call list. I suspect that if you do speak with them they sell your number to other scammers.
Same as most others. When I asked what card he was talking about, he claimed that he had just told me. I said tell me your name, he claimed he just did (he didn't). When pressed for his name again, he said I was stupid and hung up on me.
Obviously I'm not stupid because I just foiled his scam.
Just called my phone company. They said this is a known scam boasting either extending your car warranty or lower your credit card interest rates. They said the FTC has formed a task force to shut this company down. To file a complaint call the FTC at (877) 382-4357. I filed my complaint and they said this particular scam has been getting many many reports. I will be getting a letter from the FTC to confirm my complaint and I am to keep track of the phone numbers and time of calls each time they harass me. This is the same group that prosecutes telemarketers who ignore the Do Not Call list. He said they are always using fake phone numbers to get through caller id blocking and that they are definitely evading the law by doing so. They do not know anything so far as to who they are or even what country they are calling from, but the more people that file a complaint the better they can investigate! CALL AND FILE A COMPLAINT WITH THE FTC NOW!!
5/1/09 2nd CALL FROM THESE GUYS TODAY. THE FIRST CALL CAME IN THIS MORNING FROM 800 464-4000. THEY CLAIM (IN A RECORDED CALL) THAT THIS IS THE LAST TIME THEY WILL BE ABLE TO "OFFER" ME CREDIT CARD INTEREST REDUCTION. I'M ON THE DNC LIST...FOR WHAT GOOD THAT DOES.
But who belongs to this number?
INFURIATING! They call from various numbers with exact same recording that this is the last warning to lower my credit card rates. At least twice I have pressed 1 to talk to an agent to remove me from their list but they hang up on me before I finish talking!!! What's worse is I call the number that came up in the id and the number has been disconnected. They never identify themselves with a company name so I don't know who to blame!! Going to the donotcall.gov website to report them yet again but don't know what it'll do since we cannot track them down.
I scream in their ear and cuss them out! I keep hoping they will file a lawsuit against me so I can knock the f#%k out of either them or their representative (lawyer) in the courtroom! I would let them say who they are then BAMMMMMM!!! Not sure I would be able to stop either!! That would be worth going to jail over! I don't care anymore!
I've received calls from this and other numbers which have exactly the same recording about "lowering my credit card rates". I hit the #1 as suggested to speak to a customer rep. The guy was very nice and asked if I had just received a call. I said yes and I do NOT want any more from your company. He deeply apologized and said he would honor my request to put my number on their Do Not Call list. End of story. We'll see if it works now.
I never bothered to try and talk with anyone before but this is getting a little old so I diod it this time. Sheesh!! Why do we have to put up with this crap?
every time i answer, these a holes just hang up
30 April 2009 / 4:15 pm No message left on answering machine.
These *&^%$ are scam artists of one or more types....... A word to the wise: NEVER GIVE OUT ANY FINANCIAL INFORMATION! If by some chance your call has been routed to India, there is NO LEGAL U.S. PROTECTION for later misuse of the provided information. India wants to become a global financial information powerhouse and is working very aggressively in attempting to obtain your financial information using any and all scamming techniques they can get away with.......
Been hassled by this number several times today. I called and got a recording saying it's a non-working number.
The United States Government doesn't do a F*CKING thing about these scam callers using fake caller id services. Why do we even bother having www.donotcall.gov if our own government sits on its azz allowing these losers to constantly call. Our government can TRACE these calls, but they don't.
Auto call said it was going to lower my cards APR's, when a real person got on I asked which cards they would do this for and was told all of them. I asked a second time which ones and the man began cursing me out, told me I was wasting his time and hung up. Tried to call the number back from my caller ID but it was a non-working number
This number has been calling repeatedly. When told to stop calling, the same person called from a cell phone 213-321-6218. Apparently my son-in-law made this person angry because then she called back claiming to be a state agency seeking child support from my husband for an unborn child. Then she called pretending to be the woman who is pregnant with my husband's unborn child and left a message in which she is "crying" and says the pregnancy results are positive.
Who are these people?
this number calls repeatedly no matter how many times i ask to be removed from the list.
Same old crap,different number.My caller ID showed the number & Tallahassee FL.I do not answer these scam calls anymore,I report them immediately to the National Do Not Call Registry [for all that's worth!]then I call the number & get a recording saying the number is disconnected or no longer in use.DO NOT ENGAGE THESE THIEVES,THEY ARE ATTEMPTING TO STEAL YOUR IDENTITY OR CREDIT CARD INFO.
Just received a call from this number, they identified themselves as Card Services. When I asked several questions about what company they were with, the person I was speaking to became rude and said, "I've told you three times. What don't you understand?" When I asked to speak with his manager, he said, "you sure can you f**king c**t b**ch." And then hung up on me. I tried calling the number back but received a recording that the number was not in service.
Called me every week for 3 weeks. Call from Tallahassee, FL
Didn't recognize the number. Didn't answer it... no message was left.
These tele-maggots search for victims using auto dialers. They looking for the elderly, the mentally impaired or those that are otherwise young and stupid.
Don't hang up when their auto dialer calls you...that makes their job easier.
Their time is valuable and they can't afford to waste it talking to people who won't give them money.
Next time they call press #1 to speak to one of their scam reps.
Punk this a-hole for as long as possible. Tell them you have a credit card with a large balance and want your interest rates lowered.
Don't ask the Rep any questions because they'll know you're not for real.
The name of this game is to waste as much of their time as possible. Be creative and make stuff up as you go along.
I do this with the auto warranty telemarketers as well.
If you're really good, you can keep them on the line for 10 or 15 minutes.
I always touch 1 and get the rep. I answer their questions with fictitious answers, act uninformed, ask some stupid questions and finally get a supervisor on the line. Same thing - I give the wrong answer etc. I can get them to stay on the phone for over 5 minutes. Then I ask if I can put them on hold and I go away. Sometimes they call back and I can add another 2 minutes to the call. Yes, I have too much time on my hands. But if you put the phone on speaker, and you have company with time on their hands, it's fun.
This company has "spoofed" our phone number to make their illegal calls. We're getting 20-30 calls a day from local people who are calling this number to complain, but don't add the 1 for long distance calls, so the call defaults to our local area code. We have had this phone number for 22 years, but Verizon tells us we have to change our phone number if we want to stop this madness. Verizon won't even tell us what phone company in Tallahassee is assigned this number so we can't even make a complaint to the phone company that is providing service to these illegal solicitors.
Same old interest rate bull. File a complaint and be sure to give them this number. I am almost ready to give up my land line and use the cell phone, the pay by the minute kind. After the first six months I will let it expire and get a new number. The phone companies will not do anything about these automated calls and I doubt that donotcall can do much either since they use phoney numbers, but the issuing phone company should be able to tell who it belongs to, they just don't give a damn.
This was an automated call. I pushed 1 to talk to a rep. The guy knew my name and he said they could help me if I had more than $3,000 in credit card debt. He said that the name of the company is Account Services. When I asked for their contact info he hung up. My phone provider said to use *69 and get the info and file a complaint with donotcall.gov. The number was 850 386-1643.
I have had this call before and when they hear one word that indicates they aren't getting any money from me then they hang up without warning.
put the phone up to the radio, was listening to howard stern at the time talking about shaving his pubes. that usually gets them to hang up shortly
Tallahassee it is.
New message 4/21/09 about a health care plan....... again wanting information (solicitation) "bill your card"
I crank up the volume on my phone and then slightly lift from the reciever.....this emits a feedback sound that emulated a fax machine.... seems to slow the calls down but they don't exactly stop..... still getting one or two a day especially if I don't answer!
i am so tier of them calling here asking for person dose nt leave here
I am going to buy one of those can air horn and when they call again
These people just wont stop calling. The recording says "We have been trying to reach you, this is the last chance to lower your credit card rate press 1 to speak with a representative" When you press 1, a person comes on and they pretend to be from your credit company. But if you ask for the last four digits of the card this is in regards to, they hang up. If you ask what bank they are with, they hang up. If you ask anything that makes them think they can't sucker you, they hang up. if you say you are on the DNC list, they hang up, but always call back. I get these calls from a variety of phone numbers - usually in Florida. Filing a complain has yielded no results from the FTC. Plain and simple this is a scam to get your money and possibly your identity. My advice is that if they call, do not answer or hang up instantly and file a complaint. I have received 73 calls from these people to date. They do not stop, they are not afraid of the FTC and it is easy to see why, a complaint yields a case number but no real action. Perhaps if enough people complain they will do something about this.
same story, same number
To clarify, use the first contact info: About a Company, an Organization, or a Business Practice. Phone number option: Call our toll-free helpline: 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357);
"This is your last chance to lower your credit card rate". I finally got so fed up with these almost daily calls that I pursued a complaint. The FTC wants to know about these frequent automated calls. They gave me a case number and advised me to call back after each call. You can report online or by phone: www.ftc.gov
4-17-09 11:49am Recording about lowering my credit card intrest rate. Hung up.
Does anyone know how to stop these calls? I think it is an automatic dialer because when I answered, they hung up. I called the number back and got a message that the number is not in service. I have heard of companies that sell packs of bogus phone numbers to solicitors so that their calls cannot be traced. This is just my opinion, but this practice should be against the law and any company selling bogus number should be prosecuted!
This number continues to call with an offer of lowering credit card rates. They are harassing us. I have attempted on several occasions to ask that they take us off their call lists and the representatives disconnect the call WITHOUT acknowledging the request.
they called me today and when i picked up the line, i heard what seemed like people typing on keyboards in the background. i said "hello" several times, and then i hear a click, they hung up on me.
Picked up phone and it was a recording saying they have made several attempts to contact me, and this was the final attempt to lower my credit card interest rate. I hung up.
get calls from these people, and when I tell them I am on the do not call list they hang up, scumbags
The same scumbags that call to lower you credit cards' interest rate.
If they ever get caught I hope thaey serve time in a prison and will listen 24/7 to some annoying phone calls.
Something like "We can get your sentence reduced from 10 to 9 years and a half, please press 1 to get you a special case officer, or press 2 in order to serve the whole sentence and close you case!"
And this is one of the extremelly nice things I would do to them...
Rep said her name was Alexis from Card Services. When I asked what company they represent she said "all the major credit cards, does that make sense to you?" as if I were a complete moron. I asked that they please not call anymore and she went, as God is my witness, "Shut up bitch, shut up bitch, shut up bitch!" and hung up. I'd be really worried if they get some info from anyone. I'm reporting to Do Not Call.
I won't answer it, but I get a call from this number at least 3 times each week.
Received call from 850-386-1643. They said nothing. *69 This number is NOT in service.
Same credit card message I have been getting for months...I have pressed 2 a lot...I have pressed 1 - I always get hung up on when I tell them I am on the do not call list...please report each call to www.donotcall.gov
i have disconnected my answering machine because of calls like this - this number has let it ring almost 20 times before disconnecting i am on do not call list - what good is it
I encourage everyone to register a complaint EVERYTIME you receive a telemarketing SCAM callers !!
I reported them to donotcall.gov I've been registered At DoNotCall.GOV for years.
What's scary is they will insist on getting personal info from you before they tell you who they are. This must be an ID theft organization of some type.
I want them to ID them selfs on the id, then I'd pick it up if in fact it is a credit card service
I'm not late on anything, and I don't want a good day call!
Have gotten several "this is your final chance" or "we've tried several times to contact you". Spiel to lower credit card rate. They have called for many months. How many "final chances" do I get. I am also on the Do Not Call list. Stop calling you jerks.
Got a call today at 5:36 pm from this number. No message was left and I do not answer calls unless I recognize the caller. No name appeared on the caller id other than the calling number. My telephone number in NYC is on the DO NOT CALL LIST.
I have no credit cards this is funny. LOL
says "this is your LAST CHANCE to lower your credit card rate... Press 1 to speak to a representative." I keep getting this call. What happens if someone presses 1? I usually just hang up. Since I'm on the "Do Not Call" list I'm wondering how to get these calls to stop...
One blog said this number was a false number according to Embarq in FL. They will probly shut down in a few day and use another number. All they need is one or two suckers to make themselves a nice income. Best of all our great goverment can or will do little to help us. Ain't modern tec wonderful.
I screen my calls ,let answering machine pick up, as soon as the anouncement ended they hung up and left no message.
Received call at my Do Not Call cell phone. Same as others, it's about lowering my credit card rate. I disconected and called the number back. The number is no longer in service. Ha!
Same old "this is your LAST CHANCE to lower your credit card rate..." If it's my last chance why have they called me 20 times?
"This is an important message concerning your current credit card account" I hung up. Damned scammers.
I am so disgusted with these people. As soon as one ends another one pops up. Totally annoying, how does this help them.
Why isn't the government going after these people who abuse the no-call list
Who are these idiots? we have sick people at home and they tie up the phone without leaving any messages, just hang up but the line for some reason stays connected. This is criminal!
Hang up when answering machine comes on.
Get this call every so often wanting me to lower my interest rates. When I get a person and request to get off their list, I get hung up on.
Several times a week, sometimes per day, this outfit calls with the same message as Cindy below states. When I ask them if they're with my credit card company and press the subject, they hangup.

This automated message about credit services they state is urgent and this is the last time they will try to reach us to reduce our credit card Interest rate. Press a number and you will be connected with a service rep or something like that. Calls weekly so being on the Do Not Call list doesnt work for this type of call
I called it back and a recording said the number was no longer in service!?!?
Didn't answer but I swear all these calls from FL are the same group which just changes spoofed phone numbers. As soon as I block one number I no longer get a call from that number but a new number pops up that's always in Florida.
Report theses scammers to: www.donotcall.gov Maybe if the get enough complaints they will do something about it.
SCAMMERS, they rudely hand up when I refued to give them information.
These telemarketers call our house every day offering us a lower rate on our credit cards, when I ask to be put on their do not call list, and tell them we do not have any credit cards they just hang up on us... and then call back the next day again.
Got a call from this number about a week after posting on Criag's list...but have posted many times on Criag's list in the past several years and never got a call from this number until this week. The call came in on 2/26/09...didn't answer for several reasons (was at work AND didn't recognize the number)....no message was left. Does anyone know how to get off this caller's list?
called me and my best friend we were both at work so we didn't answer.... odd enough we both have rogers wireless numbers and not even remotely close together
don't answer, automated spanish outgoing message plays with a cash register sound in the background If you answer call back and take your number off of their list not sure how they obtained my cell number hopefully there won't be a charge on my cell phone bill
i just got a call from that number. i was scared to answer it at first coz i didnt recognize the area code. but i answered it and they hung up right away. but this is y i wasnt about to answer it, go here: snopes.com and here att.com... i dont no if it IS true but it keeps me aware. and thats y i was kinda worried to answer my phone. so i looked if the number was a scam. and thats how i was brought to this page.
SNOPES>COM IS A INTERNET BAIT SITE THAT DROPS CRAP INTO YOUR COMPUTER FOR ADWARE AND THEY LEAD TO Trojan Horse downloads, stay away from this site!
My wife and I have separate cell phone companies. We have both recently posted on craigslist.org and now we are both getting calls. Anyone else her post on craigslist prior to the calls?
Spanish speaking recorder...don't know what it was saying...
Called me on my cell. I do not give my cell# out just to family. They called me at 10PM! Got up and filed a compliant with the do not call list.It is the only way to stop them. They keep changing their # so you will have to keep reporting them.
Got a call from 208-991-1197 saying that I had won $1000.00 cash prize in Spanish on my cell and to press 1 to claim my prize. Don't know who this is but a reverse phone look up traces it back to Boise, ID. Have not been able to find company name. I was able to find out the following about their service provider tho!

Called me too. Don't give out you number at stores. This happened last time I gave David's Bridal my telephone number at the cash register and was bumbarded by telemarketing calls. They sell you info!
Got several calls from this number. Finally called it back today. Message stated it was travel related call. Got option to remove my number, which I did, my number is supposed to be removed within the next 48 hours.
I called back, said it was a travel related call.
The whole recording was in Spanish.
Just called me on my cell. I didn't answer-no message...
Just got a call from the same number. Spanish recording.
if you call the number back it states it is a travel related call and gives you the option to enter your phone number to have removed from their list within 48 hours
Called on my cellphone and did not leave message. How annoying is this??
02/25/2009 10:42AM CT I got a call from 208 991 1197 an hour ago. Missed the call and called them back. A voice message saying this is a travel related call and they will call me back. Telemarketing gets on my nervs.

Spanish female recorded message
Just got this call...message in Spanish.
They did not pick up the phone.
Business cell - Halifax NS Canada - 2 rings and disconnected, didn't go to voicemail
A call from this number came to my cell. Lots of static and a Spanish, female voice. I hung up.
i just got a call from this number at 5:26 but didn't answer because i was eating dinner. no message or anything..?
Picked it up, and an automated voice just said "Hello. You have won a trip to Cancun, Mexico. To claim your prize--" and about this time I just hung up. My mom has recieved calls like this. Once she actually wanted to see what it was so she pressed 1 (this was a call saying she could erase her debt on her credit card) and an operator asked for her credit card number. When she asked which one they hung up. That's probably what this is too, or something like it. Strange thing is, this was on my cell phone, and my cell phone isn't in any phone book that I know of
2/24 4:20cst....Call to my cell from 208 991-1197. I didn't answer...no msg
Yeah i defintely got a call from those number in which told me that i won a contest. I think its kind of fishy that i see all the same day 2/24/09, there's got to be a pattern.
I just got a call and decided to look it up, i just got back from mexico the hotel took my phone number is this how they got it?
I just got the call from (208) 991-1197 I answered and they hung up.
Received phone call on my cell on 2/24/09. All that showed up was 2089911197 & said Idaho on the caller ID. How the hank did they get my cell phone number?!!
Did not leave message. Sounds like another one of those bizarre calls from mysterious, foreign language-speakers who have no idea who they are calling, but just blather and hang up. I've had half a dozen such calls over the past year and I am sick of it. I don't even answer unknown numbers anymore because of these idiots.
Called on cell phone said I won a free trip to cancun. I thought telemarkerters were not to use cell numbers
Message was in spanish
I called the number back and removed my number. We will see if it works. They called my unlisted work number.
# called and I din't answer no message was left
2:37pm 2/24/09 - same Spanish BS everyone is talking about. WTF?
Message in Spanish saying I'd won money, hung up.
Rec'd call on my cell from this number .... hello you have just won... then I hung up.
Received phone call on my cell @2:09pm on 2/24/09. All that showed up was +2089911197 I said hello, and then started the female spanish blah blah recording? I hung up. The call lasted 8 seconds. Confirmed the area code of 208 and prefix is Boise, ID. These calls are are pain in the neck.
I just got a call from this number, it only rang twice and I didn't get to the phone in time. I have an unlisted Skype VoIP number, and I live in Germany, though the number is US.
Just got this number on my cell. The # was unknown to me so I didn't answer. We have a "do not call" program in Canada and its seems like I've been getting MORE calls since adding my name to the list!~
Call went to voice mail at a business number. It was a women speaking spanish. Called the number and keypunched my phone number to be removed from their mailing list.

a US telemarketing call to a Canadian cell number. i started getting these about a month ago. these people should be shot for costing me money to take their stupid call.
I'm sure that the telco's won't do anything, we are paying them the money for the cell useage.
Received call and rejected it straight to voicemail. Message that was left was about 6 seconds of a woman's voice speaking spanish.
i have received calls from 208-991-1197 as well as 208-991-1195. i just don't answer, when i see it is from a number that is long distance or a number that i don't know. just don't answer to them.
This is the first time ever on my cell phone in 10 years of having one that I have gotten an unwanted number call. Thank goodness my phone can blacklist numbers
I did not recognize the number, so didn't answer (let such numbers leave a msg).
message was 1 second long
Im sure if you answer, your proven valid number will be sold to the next group of SOBs.
They seek incompetent people, to relieve them of cash.
this woman with recorded? message came on the speaker - all in rapid mexican or latin lingo. then hung up. no idea who or what it was about. and I have an unlisted number... these creeps!
I recently recieved a call from the number 208 991 1197. This was a pre recorded message claiming that I had won a free trip to cancun. However I have no recollection of ever entering a contest. I called the number back and recieved another pre recorded voice message. It allowed me to remove my number form their call list. This number is a telemarketing number it is based for travel purposes. If you are scared that it might be a scam do what I always do call them back and remove your number!!!!!
I jsut recieved a call from 208 991 1197. The caller was a pre recorded voice message of a mans voice. He "claimed" that I had won a trip to cancun mexico. The message said to accept press one. I said no thank you and then the call was disconnected.
I got a call from this number today telling me I won a free trip to Cancun and to press a certain number to collect the prize. Of course, I didn't because I suspect I would bounce into a fee service or something equally shifty.
I got a call from the same number then an unknown right after that.
I have received a number of calls from different numbers where it is the same message. Unfortunately, I do not speak spanish, and each time the same number calls throughout the day (At least 5 times), I just hang up immediately. Honestly, with all the calls I get a day, and with their number changing constantly, it's hard not to answer the stupid call at least once a day!
so if you google this number you also see that it was a number for some health report line. there is a hacker program that can make different numbers sho when you look at your caller id. these people have to be scammers phishing for info on recently graduated or recent students. i dint graduate but just left the art institute and i have not talked to these people since i never get to the phone in time. whatever you do do not give them any info on your self or the person they are calling ofr. i am on the do not call list and have been for years. i think it is the schools selling your information. they can do this and have done this especially the art institute in the past. that school is crap and all about the money and not about the students except for their personal info so they can sell it. either way this number is bogus!
i am from curtusy call and the donation are for a good cause all of it real we really need help if some one died from cancer or as a cop of some kind woulnt u like to get a little help for a deth benifit plan for the family so please help
They call my cell three times a day. I'm listed on the DO NOT CALL LIST! It doesn't help.
These people call my cell three times a day. I'm listed on the DO NOT CALL LIST! Guess it doesn't help.
I keep getting these calls and I did not sign up for anything and not sure why they are calling me. I have never answered the phone but will definitely report them with the donotcall.gov since my number is register for no solicitations.
I called them back, used option 2 entered my 10 digit phone number then # and it worked
Even though the original caller didn't post a name, at least lots of people helped to figure out who they were. So I guess it was useful.
How on earth could anyone know who called if you put it in the data base? LOL. If you don't have it, you shouldn't post it.
They keep calling me at work so far twice in three hours.
I have gotten 3 calls in the last 2 days from this no. I don't answer 800 etc... numbers and they don't leave messags.
i just got a call from this number and a woman asked for Drew Laben... the last name might not be spelt right but thats what she said. This is the first time they said something
I'm from melbourne fl. they said they were from master card and i only verified my last 4 digits I cancellrd my 14 day free trial the day I got the letter. then they did not cancell, but charged me 1 dollar twice (probably to test the account) now days later they took 29.95. today I found this site much to my surprize .
Not only do they rip off consumers but employees. You can write to your local Attorney General Or the state of Georgia the local Fox Five here in Atlanta will be exposing Digicomm and Suretouch which real name is Direct Connections based out of Roswell Georgia Thursday 31 @I believe six and ten
They call me at least once a day. I always miss it, or I don't answer, but today I picked it up and they asked for someone who doesnt live in this building. I told them they had the wrong number and they were just like, "ok, thank you on behalf of westga-" and then the line went dead.
This same number has called me 17 times in the past 3 hours! This is ridiculous! How do we get it to stop?
I didn't answer & now I'm not going to.I don't answer these # anymore I have recieved many from like 6 different 866 # most of them have been publishers clearing house or something else stating I won something big & still want me to order a bunch of magazines.
This is Discover Card calling card holders to sell them additional services. They never leave a message. I called their number and was connected to there Arizona Call Center. An account rep named Matt wanted my account info before putting my number on their do not call list. I refused and told him that he has the name and phone number and to make sure it is removed or I would report them. We will see!
They've been calling me for weeks claiming to be from RCC, some sort of Sallie Mae third party, calling on behalf of my school. They act like a collections agency but they work for neither any schools or lending institutions. They phish for information and claim to be "confirming information" so they can get around the do-not-call list. They're either trying to steal your information or sell you a loan or some kind of loan consolidation service for some astronomical interest fee. Either way, no reputable company would act this way and claim to be sent by a company who has nothing at all to do with them. I've had this confirmed by both Sallie Mae and my school financial director. DO NOT give them any information, and don't believe a word they tell you.
They have been calling a lot. Never leaves a message. Called them back, was Discover card offering blah,blah,blah,blah,**#*!%* blah.
I have had this number appear on my caller ID, but never picked up also a 770#. If I don't know you it is going straight to voicemail, and I will deal with it later. Then I started receiving a Southern Living magazine in the mail, never requested this from anyone. Next thing I know I am being charged 4.95 on my visa debit card. I immediately canceled my card after seeing it was a charge from Digitouch LD phone # 866-380-7182. How these people got my card number is beyond me, I am very careful with whom I give my financial information to and certainly not to someone over the phone!
After recieving calls without anyone on the other end for the last 2 weeks, I finally got an operator who claimed to be from "a subsidiary company" from Sallie May who wanted to verify my enrollment information. I asked her again what company she was from (I had read the posts on this page weeks ago after I got the first call from this number) and she said they were hired by the school. I told her no, I dont believe her and she started to stammer and contradict herself saying she was hired by Sallie Mae. These calls are complete BS, don't give them ANY information! Sallie Mae and any school with a financial office would contact you before going to a third party for collections.
This is another one of those stupid telemarketer calls. And I have my number hidden.
Hung up when answered
This co. took $1 out of my visa debut card. Someone called and asked if I had a visa I told them no. They asked me if I had any card with the visa card logo. I told them my debut card did but I wasn't interested in any offers. I then told the really nice girl to stop calling my house she said the they couldn't take me off their list unless I replied yes or no to 3 offers. She then proceeded to tell me to answer o.k to the next 3 questions and no to the last,meaning no I didn't want the offers. So I did and the call was recorded. A couple days later 3 charges were made om my acct. one of which was Digitouchfor $4.95. I'm assuming it had somethiong to with that phone call.Now I have to change all my info. Please don't l;et them get away with this if it's happened to you do some investigating. This co. is making out like bandits.
no name just number............no one there..........called back, it was Discover Card..........I will close my Discover account...............this is nonsense.
I started receiving numerous calls from scammers during the last week. Yesterday I received 11 calls from questionable sources. I have received 6 calls already today and its still early. I only started receiving these harrassing calls after placing an order with Amazon. I do not enter contests because I will not give out my phone number. I am trying to see if there is a pattern with others. Did anyone else place an order with Amazon and then started receiving these unsolicited phone calls?
i got a call from this number, and i tried to answer, but i just got some recording. i just hung up right away.
Call the number back & hit 2.. Then they will ask for the number they called. Enter it and your number will be removed from their list. Great to have solicitaion on your cell phone!!!
Ok I realize you are all frustrated but those of you who are putting your phone number on this message board are complete morons. 1. The telemarketing companies don't read this forum I am sure and 2. If they find your number they more than likely WILL call you. I mean seriously you are just asking for it!
If you call the number back, there's an automated option to have your phone number removed from the list. The voice says it will take 48 hours to remove your number. I'm watching the clock carefully to see if it comes true.
Here is the name and address of company from BBB GA site:
Business ID: 443-0027004222
Address: 11660 Alpharetta Hwy
Zip/Postal Code: 30076
Have fun and get you money back!
I got a call from them last week and did not answer because i dont know them. I am also on the DO NOT CALL LIST as well. I called them to day and let them know that i was really pissed off at them , and the lady that i was talking to hung up on me and i called back and talked to someone else and told her that i would report them. She was also saying that the number would be removed in 72 hours and i told her that the recording said 48 hours.
Been calling repeatedly, finally answered, and said my name and asked if this was me. although i shouldn't have I answered yes and they hung up. I have discover, so hopefully that's who it was. Gov't opt out list doesn't count if you are a customer of the company.
Calling over and over and over. No message.
Called tonite for the first time, asked for my husband, when I asked who was calling she said she would call back when he was available. I never said he wasn't available I just asked who it was. Weirdos.
No answer when pick it up
I was scammed by a call that said I had been select for a visa rewards program. They then hung up on me and a charge from DIGITOUCH LD 86MARIETT GAUS appeared on my check card for $39.99 This is a BIG SCAM came up as unknown caller on caller ID
they have called me about 15 times today and no one answers when I say hello
The list goes on and on... They don't stop! I am on the do not call regristry and they still keep it up! These guys are persistant! They usually call several times a day.
This number called me five times today!
Just call back - it's an automated system that will give you the option to be removed from the list within 48 hours. Choose option #2 :)
this company is PHISHING for information on recent college graduates. They seem to be targeting 2 year degree program schools. DO NOT give them any information. Contact the company who handles your loans, in my case, it was Sallie Mae, AND the school you graduated from. Sallie Mae told me that what they tell people on the phone is a LIE. General Revenue IS a legit company owned by Sallie Mae, but it is ony used as a collections agency for those who have DEFAULTED on loans. For those in a grace period, or those who are repaying loans on time or who have made other arrangements with their lender, THERE WILL BE NO COLLECTIONS CALLS! This is fraud, plain and simple.
Called them back and selected option 2 to remove my number. We'll see if it works. Not holding breath..
This is some vacation scam. Call the number back press 2 to be removed from this list.
I just got a call from a lady who said i signed up for something from digitouch, and Buyers edge. She claimed they sent me something in the mail for me to review for 14 days, which I do not recall ordering anything or getting anything. She told me the last 4 digits of my card, and that if I did not speak to her my account was going to be automatically billed $220.00. She read the "promotions" over the phone that said if I chose to accept the offer, do nothing and my account will be billed. I stayed on the call and went through cancelling this account, but gave no personal information that she did not already know. I then called my wife who works at our bank and had my card cancelled immediately. I asked her if she had phopne numbers for the companies with the "offer". She gave me two numbers 1-866-380-9146 that is a fax number, and 1-888-326-9146 which gave me a recording that my call could not be completed as dialed. The number on my caller I.D. was 1-678-391-5278. She also said a confirmation of my cancelling my subscription will be delivered via fedex, and I was the only one that could sign for it.
Now I wish I had hung up, but had my wife cancel our card so nothing will come out...girls gone wild was one of the so called subscriptions.
Please do not call 6126163650
the 888 number called me.. and asked for my name.. how do they know that???
If you are signed up with the "National Do Not Call Registry" just report these unwanted calls to them. This is simple to do by phone or by e-mail, and I think the violaters are subject to fines, especially if a number of people complain. I reported several today.
They called yesterday, I didn't answer since it was an 800#. They left no msg.
These calls are from a thieving "Long Distance" outfit called DigiTouch and SureTouch. They are no longer answering their phone numbers.
HOWEVER, both their websites are registered to this guy:
259 CUTTY SARK WAY
ALPHARETTA, GA 30005-4228
I got that information from this website, if you'd like to verify it:
They also list a disconnected phone number for the guy. What's REALLY interesting though, is that when I searched for the Cutty Sark address, Elliot popped up on this FAA website:
259 Cutty Sark Way
Alpharetta, GA 30005
(H) (770) 442-5826 / (W) (770)-458-6047
Turns out he's a pilot with the Federal Aviation Association. Don't bother with the home number; it's disconnected. BUT YOU CAN CALL HIM AT THE ABOVE WORK NUMBER! It's a company called Prestige Helicopters, and I doubt they have anything to do with his shady behavior; he just works for them. They might be interested in knowing about it, though, as would the FAA.
I got two calls today: ignored one and answered one (immediate hang up). These guys appear to using an autodialer (it's illegal to call cell phones any way!). I called back, registered option 2 AND also went to FTC.gov and filed a "do not call complaint". I urge everyone to do so as well
If you call the number back you can use option 2 to be removed from this call list! Stop Complaining!
it's from Discover.
888-322-2785 (TOLL FREE CALL) calls about twice a day. I never pick up for anything on the caller ID that reads solely "Unknown Number" "Private Number" and lists no number or "Toll Free Call" They've been calling for about a month. Consensus seems its Discover card. Question, does everyone here, have Discover card? Because I don't and from what I'm reading, it seems they are targeting existing members in order to push some additional package. If that's the case, I wonder how I got lumped in?
I just received a call from this number and a man asked for my husband. When I told him that my husband was unavailable, he said "ok, thank you". I asked who was calling and he said "John Preger" and he hung up. I called back the number and got a recording that said "this is Discover Card. We recently tried to contact you in regard to a service we are offering. If you would like to speak to an account manager, please stay on the line. Otherwise, please continue to use and enjoy your Discover card, good-bye".
They called multiple times at 10pm (eastern). Once I answered they identified themselves and told me it was only 8 their time. I asked they stop calling and said they would put me on their do not call list.
I just called Discover about this number. gave them the 888-322-2785 said they called up to 5 times day and as late as 9:30 pm that they don't say anything and then they hang up. when they do talk they want you to buy fraud protection. and that we can not understand them sounds like they are from another country. so people are hanging up because they are afraid that it is a scam. that someone just wants the credit card number and that alot of people are very upset over this harassment. told her to take my name and number off there list. she said she would and she was forwarding everything I told her to Discover headquarters. I hope this will get them off everyones back
How do I sue and collect on jerks who do not respect the law concerning the DO NOT CALL list?
Three calls now and I'm losing my patience.
called number back said it was Discover card selling a product / service
guys, don't ever pick up. if it's anything remotely important, they'll always leave a message.
they call all the time at 8:30 at night its really annoying to get spam on your cell phone
This is Discover trying to sell something. I learned that from this site. I have a Discover card, so I logged onto their cardholders site, found a customer service e-mail address, and wrote them to tell them to stop calling me. In less than three hours, I received a reply saying my phone number would be removed from their marketing lists.
I would like to find out how to block calls from specific numbers.
recieved calls every day for the past week!
Got calls from this number on saturday morning. Thats just rude!
this number called at 8:50 pm on the 17th of August we will not answer a number that we don't know who it's from if they don't want to tell us who they are we don't want to speak to them.
A tremendous amount of calls from this number. They will not leave a message and I refuse to answer unless identity is provided on caller ID.
My mother bought some book from a TV infomercial, and soon after received a call about a free Wal-Mart gift card. Sure enough, on my parents' Amex card, two small charges from Digitouch, Girls Gone Wild, and one other I can't remember offhand. Digitouch soon ballooned to 39.95 a month, and they're still receiving Girls Gone Wild dvd's in the mail, all billed to the Amex card.
The odd thing is my mom clearly stated to the caller about the gift card that she was NOT interested, and promptly hung up the phone. That's the only and last they've ever receieved, but a call to American Express solved this, a new card has been issued and all of the charges marked as fraudulent.
Digitouch, Girls Gone Wild, and some US Patriot Card was the charges involved.
This number is from DISCOVER CARD. If you have a DISCOVER CARD, they are trying to sell you that overpriced "insurance" aka "fraud protection". DO NOT BUY! You can do better by putting the month cost into a bank account. Your liability on your card is already ZERO DOLLARS, so why would you buy more coverage? SCAM-A-RONI.
Called my cell phone. Didn't recognize it so didn't answer.
I am being tormented by these calls...they say nothing when they call. I do not have a Discover card and because of this annoyance, I never will.
My wife got this call this morning from 888-322-2785
the woman on the other end said to her that there has been a lot of theft in this area and she said she was calling on behalf of DISCOVER card, when my wife told her she is not interested in what ever s you are selling, just before the hang up she said in a nasty tone, some people are dumb,i was hoping she would call again so i could sail into her.
they called my cell 8 times this week.
Does Sprint sell info to telemarketers?
I called this number today after repeated calls to my phone number and it IS Discover Card wanting to tell me about all of their features. The receptionist was very nice and asked if I wanted to be taken off of the call list and of course I said yes! I called at 8:30am CST. Maybe they are more friendly in the mornings!!
They called again about 5-10 minutes after the first but I didn't answer.
I'm so glad I didn't answer this call! Is there no way to make them stop?
I got two phone calls today from this number 888-685-0042. I think they have called many times in the past too
Way, way too many calls to my house.
I got a call from this number recently (Don't remember and don't care to remember when.). I don't know what they could possibly want from a 16 year old, but I never answer numbers like that.
they call all the time and never leave messages, so i called the number - it's a discover card "special offer." (i am a cardholder.) i called them back and was directed to a customer representative in Arizona. i asked her to have my name removed from the calling list - and she said she'd take care of it, although i may still receive a few calls before my name is removed. we'll see what happens...
called 7 times today and 5 yesterday
please stop calling my number. I get a call everyday, but never answer it.
Have gotten a few calls over the last few days. Used the advice of some of you that have posted. Called back the number and used option #2 and had my number removed. You people are awesome thanks for your help.
I was on a website looking at vacations for Las Vegas, how they got my number I have no clue.
888.322.2785... at least one call a week. I never answer. You'd think they'd learn by now.
We've been duped. I assumed husband made the charge, husband assumed I had made the charge. DIGITOUCH has been taking $39.95 directly from our main bank account. NOW, we are going to have to change everything. 07/30/2007 ELECTRONIC PURCHASE -$39.95 DIGITOUCH 8663807146-V866-3807146 GA US. We are at our wits end now.
Ok i got the call a few days ago, and like a dope i listened to the lady who was actually very nice to me. she told me that i would be recieving 3 prizes and all i had to do was listen to these offers and not give my proper information so they would not be able to charge me. I've already put up a fraud alert . Is there anything else i should do? has anybody made the same mistake i did? what happened? please email me at JayM08@gmail.com i would really appreicate it. thanks.
Received call from this number on 7-30-2007
I've been receiving 888-322-2785 multiple times a day for over a month. No message is left. Sometimes there is a blank space on tape. I never answer.
they called 10 times,in the past week alone. The last time I heard the open telemarketer sound. When I tried to call the number back, it gave me a fax number kind of sound.. you know like dialup..
This number calls virtually every day, sometimes two or three times. It rings once or twice and hangs up. If answered there is dead silence and then disconnect.
3 4 5 times a day every day for a long time now
Someone called my wife offering free gift promotions and subscriptions she refused but somehow they got her debit card # and tried to charge $1.00.The bank called and warned her and put a stop on the card.
Now asks for the registered telephone user.
the woman asked for my son who is 16 when i said may i ask who is calling she said of course and then hung up
I have been called like 8 times by this number in the past few days. I have never answered because its my cell phone and I refuse to waste minutes on this crap. I wish there was a way to stop it
"They keep calling me... Keep on calling me!!!"
Caller ID says '1-888-322-2785 800 Service'. If we do answer no one is there. Sometimes someone will be on the other end asking for someone I never heard of. Been getting these calls for 3 months.
They didn't leave a message. When I called back, I got a recording saying that it was Discover Card, calling with an offer.
This number has been calling for days. We usually just let it ring and they never leave a message. Today, my wife answered. Someone with a heavy foreign accent asked for me and she said, "he's not available." They said they'd call back. She said, "wait, who's calling." They said, "Discover." Very suspicious since DiscoverCard usually identifies themselves first when they call - you don't have to ask.
Rang four times. I didn't answer. Gave number but name not provided.
I just started getting the calls but never answer. So far, two calls have come through.
I get these calls too - and I block the number - dial *60 on your phone to do the same. No more calls!!
10 calls within hours
9:01 July 10
rings many times, pick up,silence
Thanks, John G., Dan and JLB for letting us all know this caller is from the Discover Card
I don't know where you got my number or my name from but my number is on the national do not call list. That means leave me the fuck alone
Just call the number on the back of the Discover Card (which is the Delaware main office), go through the menu and wait to speak to a customer representative. Ask them to take off all phone and mail solicitations. It will take up to 30 days for all solicitations to stop.
Apparently if you call them back and press "2" it will remove you within 48 hours...we shall see.
I answered the call, it was a gay telling me that i could spend 3 days and 2 nights in Las Vegas Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino for $249 - that's me and 4 people for that price. I don't know if it's true but I didn't take it.
Called while we were out - # showed on caller ID with "Not Provided" as the caller.
No message left.
Reported to www.donotcall.gov - we are on the national do not call list.
5 calls in 5 days
Out of the last 25 calls to my house this number called 5 times. That is from June 26 to June 30. Never leaves a message. I have a do not call #/
888-322-2785 just keeps calling. I put them on the "DoNotCall" list on 4-6-07 and everytime they called since then, but they just keep calling.
Calls 8 times a day, 7 days a week, they never say a word. They are total idiots.
this number is for discover card
I'm already on a do not call list. What can be done?
I received calls from this number 888-685-0042 and +7327105562 on my cell phone. These people more than likely got it from my resume, which, I uploaded into monster.com and other job-search websites. I believe they are crooks trying to scam mainly "college students"... Keywords from my resume profile. They will end up phishing money from your account if that info is given to them. BEWARE!!!
Called by Kent. Told I was picked out as a finalist for top prizes. Never enterd a drawing. Complete BS
I get calls from this number every day, 2-3 times per day. I never answer and they never leave a message. Caller ID reads Toll Free.
They called and I let my four-year-old daughter talk to them. She was a bit shy at first, so I told her it was her grandma and grandpa. That made her happy, but when they didn't say anything, she handed me the phone and went back to reading War & Peace.
888-322-2785 calls everyday at least 2 - 3 times daily
I just called the number 888-322-2785 and got throught to a customer service rep from discover and ask to be taken off there call list.He processed my request immediatly
I just received a call from them. I have no idea how they got my cell phone number but it was very annoying. No one has my number. I'm mad.
Repeated calls from this number. I don't answere from unknown callers either. Today, caller finally asked for me by my legal name "is so & so there" and hung up. Glad to find this site and what to do. Thanks for being here ya'll!
After reading everyones messages in here, I called this number back and told her I was to betaken off the list immediately. She went thru the motions like she does it all day long. She wanted to read some disclosure and I hung up.
I have been on the govt DoNotCall list for over a year and I still get calls....
Never leaves a message, calls 3, 4, 5 times a day.
Report ANY number that that calls your house and does this to WWW.DONOTCALL.GOV The calls stop. I have reported about 10 numbers and about to report this one. The calls have always stopped after I report them.
I goy four call from this number and when i asked to take my nember out of the list the guy was making stupid noise...
Unwanted call. ask they stop calling. call two three times per week. stop answering.
they called me, i looked this up, then called them back and requested to be removed from the call list. will see if it actually works
called twice today on my cell, no message left
I have gotten 2 calls today from this number. It is on my cell phone, so they must have gotten my number from somewhere else on the internet. THanks for this website, now I know not to answer.
THATS NOT THE ONLY ONE BUT IT IS GETTING ANNOYING THEY NEED TO BE MADE QUIT IF U DONT ANSWER THE FIRST TIME LEAVE A MESSAGE AND DONT CALL BACK
Call them back and press '2' then enter you phone number followed by the pound key.. it will add you to their do not call list..
I get MULTIPLE call from then, and when they finally DID answer, they hung up.. I am going to file harrassment charges or something!
They call me about 15 times a day! STOP CALLING!
888-685-0042: no return call possible on this #; but i keep receiving the calls!!!
wouldn't say what he wanted only wanted to talk to my husband whom I told was not here. Refused to leave any message or identify himself or the company he was calling in behalf of.
I have tld them 5 times now to take me off their list. Have no clue where they got my cell phone number. I finally got the woman's name tonight and asked again and recorded her name, the date, and time.
Please do not call 4234961469.
Calling daily. When I called back I heard a recording for "Discover Credit Cards. They asked for my account # to take me off their mailing list. DID NOT provide to them. Called the Discover card # on the back of my card and verified this is NOT one of their #s. Some kind of scam. Beware!
They kept calling me, so I decided to finally pick up. Just tell them that you are not interested, get their name, and ask to be taken off of their call lists. If they call again, I will report. I would suggest doing it this way, not through the menu. You have a person you spoke with and they can't claim that you didn't call or it got lost.
rings twice and hangs up
i got bout 10 calls from dis douchie quit callin me or come confront me??
call comes up as "Toll Free Call", I don't answer these, no messages on machine, every day, even weekends, doesn't matter the time. They just need to stop
Don't call me again!
Same problem Rings no one Home. Can we please report this number to someone to stop it?
Please stop calling me.
Here is their phone number; 407-351-3350 ask for John Tinley. I left him a voice message and told him I am posting this info so everyone can call him 20 times a day.
i get this call all the time, but I dont answer as it wastes minutes. I'm on the do not call list, but they call anyway. i have been a visitor of the Aladdin, so i am wondering if that is how they got my number.
just got a call and said that i had entered something online and that i wanted to go to vegas. i said i didnt, i never made such plans. he then wanted to know what my vacation plans were. i dont have any. he hung up the phone on me.
How did these people get my phone #
We recently moved and we started receiving calls from TOLL FREE 888-322-2785 as soon we had our phone service turned on. We have been in our home for 5 months and we get at least 2 calls a day!!!
I've gotten a call the last week every morning and night
Have gotten dozens of calls from this number to my cell phone.
this number keeps callin my cell phone hella times and hanging up please please stop callin 707-319-2523!!!!!!
Since this number had no caller ID name associated with it, I gave it one: "Fartbrain". From here on out, I'm going to wait on the line until someone comes on, instead of hanging up after the 2nd HELLO, and say, "Hi Fartbrain", and call them by that name in every sentence until they object, so I can tell them that if they don't like being called by name, they should hide their caller ID.
This will be much more effective if the rest of you will do the same thing.
4 calls, just this afternoon.
The one time when some blatherpuss came on to talk at me, she let on that "one of our web sites" had identified me as a person who would like to visit Las Vegas. The web site where just two days ago I selected Vegas as a place to visit was: www.usasurveygroup.com.
This is one of those scammy web sites that strings you along by offering something free in exchange for taking a "survey", but really requires you to view page after page of ads and more "free" offers, and after you've done all that, they require you to buy something from someone to qualify. Then, once you're finally supposed to be qualified, they give you an Internal Server Error that just won't go away.
All this bother over a stinking package of Starburst!?!
Call it back and select option 2 to be removed from the call list. Hopefully it works - they say within 48 hrs...
i got a call from 223-038-0000. maybe it's related to this as well.
Will Not leave any message????
They started calling us 2 days ago - averaging 6 calls a day. We have not answered any of the calls. The great thing about our story - when we were in Vegas, we had a tour scheduled with Westgate. They provided us with the wrong meeting time & many other mis-provided info. It was a huge headache just for a couple discounted tickets. I would think after the arguing my husband & I did with them, they would know not to call us!
I got a charge for $39.95 on my Visa statement from DIGITOUCHK+LD with the phone # 866-380-7146. Called the # and they immediately said they would credit me w/in 10 days. I never agree to anything over the phone. Am going to alert my phone co. and get a new credit card.
They are trying to sign you up for any of their products...payment protection plan.
Receive calls from this number often, called back and it is Discover Card.
+++++++++Go to donotcall.gov and file a complaint against this number. That's what I did. I hope this bastards get sued and go under and are NEVER able to call people's cell phones again. I hope they all rot in hell.
Well, we got 4 calls on a Saturday morning, which has finally prompted me to do something and have been getting calls for a month or so.
We called customer service at discover as others have suggested and asked them to add us to their "do not call" list. They seemed to acknowledge it could be them calling and they put us on the list. We'll see if the calls stop and I will repost to let you know.
Registered on Do Not Call when this crap started 2 months ago. For the longest time they stopped calling. I just got my 3rd call in 2 days today after about 6 weeks of nothing. I have reported them on DNC all 3 times. This pi$$es me off so much, this is my cell number.
Called 2 times. Number 223-083-0600. Don't leave a message.
They called my cell phone but I didn't answer it.
www.donotcall.gov, and register on the national DO NOT CALL list and if they keep calling REPORT THEM!
Every day for the last couple weeks I have been receiving a call from this number.
im 14 im too young to be being called by resorts donno how you got my number but im not ever going to pick up so stop calling me
Multiple calls morning and night.
how can i get them to stop calling me
No answer. No pickup.
You really shouldn't post your own phone number here.
I'm starting to get calls from these guys. Did a Google search rather than answer and found this site as well as several others talking about these annoying folks.
This call came in on my cell phone @ 8:00 p.m on 5-7-07.
quit calling me asshole
I've received about 20 calls from this bunch in last 2-3 weeks. STOP!!!!
They called on "on behalf of ITT" looking for me [a guy] but assumed that I was a girl so I couldn't be me. They asked me to leave a message. [I did because I didn't want to talk to someone that even mentioned the school's name...] They said their number[565-4453], the name was Anita [I think] No last name. My loans are through Sallie Mae. I see that general trend on here. I googled the number they left and didn't find anything. I googled the name, MCC and didn't find anything. I finally googled the number on the ID and found this site eventually. This is the first call but if they call again, I'm going to call them out!
This number keeps calling. Stop! How do I make them stop?
Just call the number (it is Discover) back and ask to be taken off their call list!
This is really crazy I just started getting phone calls from 678 391 5280 after my purse was stolen last week I couldent understand the man who was calling anyway Ihave the police on this I believe this is a very big scam be careful out there I hope they get caught
this number just called me and asked for howard stern
what the heck.
Automated calling equip calls a bunch of numbers at once and when one answers it hangs up on the other numbers. Keeps the person calling from having idle time.
Hello. I am Senior Counsel to Cbeyond. I am adding this comment to communicate three important things:
1. The number on the callerID is being "spoofed" or faked - the poor customer to whom that number belongs is as much a victim of this criminal caller as the people on this page;
2. Cbeyond has notified law enforcement and is continuing to investigate any reports of this caller;
3. If you have been called by this number it is very important that you contact your telephone company with the time and date of the call so they can trace the origin (as best they can) of this caller.
I keep getting calls and messages from this number. I do not return calls and delete messages. Don't know how they got number as on no call list. Very aggravating!
can u please stop calling 7739544731 if important leave a message because i will not answer
Only i use a big pan lid and a spatula and BANG BANG BANG! LOL .You have to wait for a voice though. I hope i deafened some, they deserve it for waking me up. Stops the calls i swear lol.
There are 2 different kinds of people here, those who understand what this site is, a site that informs people WHO CALLED hence the name, whocalledus. Then there are the idiots who type STOP CALLING ! as if this site will call these telemarketers personally.This site has nothing to do with the actual numbers , get a brain.
please stop calling!!!
Has called many times. Several times on many days and evenings. Including weekends. Caller ID gives number + Tollfree Number. Never leaves message.
Called and asked for my boyfriend. Did not leave a message with me or tell me who they were.
I spoke with Discover and the representative took me off of the list of automated calling, and put me on this list. I get one a day. The thing to remember is that Citigroup is behind this, they are a horrible, aggressive organization that has changed the face of the credit card business..for the worse.
Picked up phone & woman id'd self as from Discover Card. I said immediately I didn't want anything and to please remove us from their call list. I put phone back on handset. After few seconds, I picked up phone to make a call and she was still talking!!!!!
This sounds like the name of the new sports complex that opened near my house, where the new stadiums are...
I called the number back after hitting *67 on my phone, and a mechanical voice said it was Discover Card with a new offer.
Please do not call 402-813-2503, thank you.
After receiving several calls from this number with no ID and no msg left I answered just to see who it was.
A female answered saying she was a rep for Discover Card and began pushing a new service I neither needed or wanted; very persistant.
These people have called my house every weekday regarding my "Mastercard account" I don't have one. When I told the gentleman that I was going to press charges if they call again, I was told that I'd never find them because they are in "BIN LADEN'S CAVE" and that he wants strippers for his strip club. I don't know what the hell that is all about but someone needs to do something about these people calling.
i've recieved 10 calls from this number in 2 days, and they keep calling right after i hang up on them and tell them not to call again, they're some persistant little bastards
when I call back it says it's Discover Card. I can only imagine they are trying to sell something. Very Annoying
THEY RECYCLE PH #S IN FL SO I WAS GETTING A LOT OF CALLS FOR SOME DEADBEAT NAMED MARISSA -- AND I WORK FROM HOME!! I HAVE SCRAPED ALMOST EVERYONE OFF THE REGULAR CALLING CYCLE EXCEPT THESE PEOPLE! I'VE CALLED AND AND NICELY, OVER & OVER---REPORTED THEM TO GOVT DO NOT CALL LIST...THREATED THEM WITH A LAWSUIT. say: anyone got a savvy LAWYER THAT WANTS A CLASS ACTION CASE AGAINST THESE IDIOTS? tHET aRE INTERFERING w/MY RIGHT TO EARN LIVING, HARRASSING ME 3-4X PER DAY- I EVEN TURN MY RINGER OFF. WILL NOTHING/NO ONE STOP THESE HARASSERS????? arghhhhhhh!!!ahhhhh!!!!!!
sIGNED, PISSED OFF IN PINELLAS COUNTY FLA
Dude, how do they get my cell number????
About 9:30 a.m. I makes me mad that even with caller id, the identity is not provided.
THEIR BACK....NOW W/ DIFF NUMBER FROM MI
Yeah, if you call back you get the automated system, press 2 and then enter in your number and they take you off the list, no hassle, no operator or salesperson
It's from Discovery card.
2 times a day. I don't answer no message
I don't know who the hell this number is, but they have called 5 times today, and at all hours none the less! I don't answer numbers i don't recognize, especially if they refuse to leave a voice mail. I just want these calls to stop...
iam on the do not call list please do not call again.
registered on do not call, what is the problem?, that is exactly what it means!
registered do not call list!
They called on 4/13 claiming they were from visa rewards. They guy "Ron" knew m account # and was going to send me a gas card, wal-mart gc, and a voucher for a vacation, because it was customer appreciation month. All I had to do was listen to the advertisements from sponsers (Digitouch, Girls Gone Wild, and some other place) I listened and he said I would recieve gifts in two weeks. I looked at my account today and Digitouch took out $4.95 And Girls Gone Wild took a dollar. The guy was really nice though not like the other complaints. But afeter I think about it he was a fake, a little flirty, no real telemarketer would act like that.
This number called me and they said nothing. Just stayed on the line while I said Hello 3 times then goodbye.
888-322-2785 Calls does not leave messages. No answer when I return call.
If this is Discover Cards "Fraud Protection" plan, then is truly is a fraud, for what you get!
Most of the services offered on the site are typically free anyway. For example, one free credit check report. Well, we are all entitled to one free credit report, per year.
I have had more trouble with this so called, "Fraud Protection" plan. Somehow, it was automatically charged to my discover account and it has been an ordeal, trying to get them to take it off. The service guy was extremely rude. And the last few times I have called, the recorder directs you to several different area...anyway after someone finally did pick up...they hung up instantly...more than once!
Attorney's are the next step. I don't have time for the games!
Perhaps there maybe a Class Action Lawsuit brewing...!
I don't mean to sound sue happy but this is rediculous!
I got this many times, over and over, about 3 times a day. Once I heard somone breathing hard, thats it.
They just keep calling
IF YOU WANT TO GET THESE IDIOTS BACK, YOU HAVE TO FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE. IF POSSIBLE, HAVE A WHISTLE HANDY AND IF YOU ENCOUNTER A TELEMARKETER, GIVE THEM A GOOD BLAST INTO THE PHONE. IF YOU HAVE A GOOD SET A LUNGS...SCREAM INTO THE PHONE, AND HANG UP. YOU WILL GET YOUR POINT ACCROSS AND EVENTUALLY THE CALLS WILL STOP.
My cell-phone rang today. the number shone was 1-888-685 0042. i answered, but was given no response. lost credit on my phone. If this is a TOLL FREE call, i would advise everyone who received a call to call back. It cost them to operate this service. Payback is a ......
They have called me at least 8 times this week. The one time I answered, it just hung up on me.
Ok, I missed the call by seconds and they did not leave a message - I "whocalled.us" the number and followed what others had done except when I called back, it said the number was disconnected - so I can't select option 2 to remove my number. Great, now what do I do?
It's been 2 days now that they keep calling me twice a day and they dont leave a message.
888-322-2785 called several times over the last month. Answer call and nothing but silence. From reading messages on this website it is call from Discover. I have put them on donotcall list but since I have their card it doesn't do any good.
They call too early in the a.m. & I do not answer unknown caller or anything similar to that.
they called and hung up
I'm reporting it to www.donotcall.gov each time they call, if all of us do that maybe they will leave us alone
They call and an Indian or Paki says, "Can I hepp you?"
How do we get them to stop calling???
I got two calls from this number. What the hell is this?
I got a call this morning from this number. It's obviously a scam of some sort. I filled out an online form with the FBI and sent it to them. It would be within their jurisdiction since interstate commerce is involved. Even if they don't look into it, maybe they'll forward the information to the appropriate agency. I cited this webpage so they can confirm all the reports of others.
who is this number
you may also be getting calls from a 727 number and an 866 number & one that just shows as zeros--they all appear to be part of the same scam. WATCH YOUR CREDIT CARD BILLS!!!!
It is DISCOVER, the credit card company, calling to tell you about their latest credit card gimmick, like Fraud Protection.
They keep asking for different names. They call all the time at all hours of the day but won't divulge what it's about. It's harrassment.
Has anyone else entered their number for ringtones?
Never answer and taking legal action
I am on the do not call list. About 2 months ago I continued to get calls from them so I called back and did the 2 option. all was quiet again...until today. I just called them again and removed myself again. I sure hope this isn't someything I will be subjected to every couple of months. These sales tactics are so darn annoying that I wouldn't use them even if I had an interst. I don't believe in the irritating way they conduct and try to get new business.
These people call about once a day until yesterday; they called twice. Whenever they call they either hangup or they don't say anything except you can hear some typing in the back ground. Although, today they asked for me but they they put Jr at the back of my name; I never use Jr. I then asked who this was and they,once again, hang up on me. Every time that I try to call back all I get is ringing.I am going to report this to the phone company and since I am on the 'no call list' I will let them know too.
You are all really stupid =)
This is my first time using this site. I never answer my phone unless I know who's calling. They call at odd hours when I am sleeping. If I get another one from them and I wake up, I will report who answers.
cALL them and press 2
it takes u off the list
These people always call for my mother when she's at work! When I tell them she's at work, they either ask what would be a better time to call or hang up on me! Despite the fact that they ask what a better time would be to call-- they never call when she's home! It's starting to become harassment and if I can find out what the company is, I will definitely report them to the government (donotcall.gov).
I received a call this afternoon from this woman who had no phone etiquette. She mentioned something about they was going to start building a Best Buy in my neighborhood. Which I know for a fact was a flat out lie. I knew something was wrong from the very beginning. I'm not psychic but she mentioned about a gift card to Best Buy, Walmart or Target. She then asked me to listen to 50 sec survey and I woulnd not have to do anything but just listen. I would then be asked for my B-day and not to put in anything,she will input it in and would hear some tones ( then she demonstrated). She stated if I was not interested, when I rec'vd the info in the mail, just to throw it away. What Sales Rep in their right mind will tell u to throw anything away. Always note, anything legitmate would be recorded. I asked her she got my number becuz it's unlisted...she said from a database of 2 million.( another LIE). I also asked her how much the Gift Card was for? she hesitated and then said Forty. Please be Aware and ask questions !!! You'll catch them in their own Lies...Also tell them you record all suspicious phone calls so you can report them to the Police. I can guarantee they will stop calling you.
do not call again. thank you
don't answer - it is an automated phone dialer - totally ignorant people on the other end
We received 2 calls today from this number. The second time, I answered and the caller asked for my husband by name. When I asked who was calling, he hung up.
please do not call 7168642705
The guy called me and he talked he said i have been selected to a trip to vegas and stuff. But i never entered anything
These freaks have called me every hour on the hour since 6:00pm this evening. Then after 9:00 pm I got 3 "unknown" calls - probably them. I picked up once and said STOP CALLING THIS NUMBER but they just kept calling every hour. And yes I am and have been on the do no call list - this is my cell they are calling too.
2 x today and at least once a day for the last few days. Shows "unknown name."
This number is making my whole family crazy! Who can I report them to? It comes up unknown or unavailable OR just now 'TOLLFREE NUMBER'!! They hung up on the answering machine. . . There is NO way I'm calling them to GIVE them my name and information to 'opt out'!!
Calling back and pressing 2 will allow you to remove your number from their call list. If you are ALREADY on the FCC's Do Not Call list, file an online complaint against this (or any other unsolicited marketing) company at www.donotcall.gov
Asked for my husband, then when I asked who was calling, he hung up on me.
Very loud background
"Debra" representing the Art Institute looking for my son, who did attend the Art Institute of Pittsburgh untill about a year ago, with question about student loans. Number she left to be contacted with is 1-800-565-4453, which googles to a Health Services Restructuring Commission in Ontario, Canada
I have recieved several calls from this number. Usually they say they are with Wal-Mart and I tell them I am not interested, I am on the National Do Not Call registry, and to please not call again. On the evening of 03/13/07 I recieved a call from this number yet again, however I would say that this call breaches sexual harrassment laws. The Gentleman (if you can call him that) Asked to speak with me...when I responded that I was in fact who he was looking for he asked my age then stopped me from responding. He then proceeded to ask me if I was married...Happily? I stated yes (keep in mind I am one of those who forgets to respond appropriately when I am taken off guard) he then proceeded to ask me questions like "Have you ever seen a chocolate snake?" "Is your husband close by" "Don't you want to explore this" "you were really young when you got married, were you highschool sweethearts" "Can I call you back when your husband is not there.....and not all up in your teeth?" I forgot to mention that before all the questions he had said "what the F*** this is my last day" Anyway he had the nerve to call back again tonight 03/14/07 where he got my husband (who was aprised of the situation) and asked for me then proceeded to say to a co-worker "you've got to hear this B****!" and my husband responded by saying that "no she is not interested in any nasty, dirty people like you" (our three children were standing right there). Anyhow....don't pick up if you get a call from this number! I am investigating on how to file charges.
I just got a call and they said they are with the American Breast Cancer Assoc.
I keep recieveing calls from this number on my cell phone. STOP!!!!
DON'T CALL THIS NUMBER ANYMORE, UNLESS YOU WANT TO GET AN EARFUL
I received 3 calls from this number on my cell phone today.
3 Calls today on my cell. How the F*** did they get my PRIVATE cell number.
They called at 8:30 AM on a Saturday. I started by telling her that it was early in the morning and not to call here any more at that time. I asked her specifically if she worked for the Art Institute and she said she did and that she knows I probably get a lot of solicitations. What she didn't say is that she is one of them. She lied to me on the phone and gave me her phone number and name. So the long list of times they have called is going on the "do not call" list for "annoyance" phone calls. Hope this helps someone else to not have to deal with this crap.
I've gotten 4 calls since 12pm et today!
i got two of these calls at work....within 10 minutes of each other...on my cell..i didnt answer
called my mom and asked for my dad, mom asked them who was calling and they identified themselves as a deputy sheriff. my mom told them my dad had passed away and they then hung up on her. I have sent an email to the navada attorney general and the us attorney general to see if they can stop this illegal act of impersonating a law enforcement officer.
I get 1 call daily from this number around 12pm!!
Nobody says a thing, what the heck
I called the number back. It IS Discover card, and they want to sell me something. GO AWAY PEOPLE!!
Constant calls from this number.. at least 6 times a day. I have been "removed" from the list and still called.
They are lookin for people who doesn't speak English
and then they say you won something from some website blablabla and they ask for personal information. Be very careful
they keep calling EVERY DAY and it's just annoyed!>
They just keep calling I want it to stop! I don't pick up 800 calls. I'm a do not call member with my state. I will file a complaint.
I just filed a complaint at www.donotcall.gov/Complain/ComplainCheck.aspx. Every time a telemarketer calls me, I will register a complaint.
These guys called called me 5 times today on my cell phone, never leaving a message, and I am pissed. I am on the DNC list, and I will now look to see idf I can get retribution.
THEY CALLED ME CELL PHONE TWICE SO I GOOGLED THE NUMBER AND CAME UP WITH THIS!
They called me today at 10:30. I answered not knowing who it was. They asked for someone I don't know. I googled for the number and found this page. I'm going to be upset if they keep calling me.
I hope this helps.
If i reported all the calls I got from this number that box above would double in size! I was receiving these calls 2,3, 4 times a day, I work nights and I sleep days, so they wake me up more often than I can say. I often ignored them, or answered, yelled and then tried to go back to sleep, aggravated, and annoyed. I finally called the number back and asked to be taken off the registry. They did say it was an offer of card security as some of you have said. They seemed to get more persistent when there was national attention of a recent scam. They, well this one peoson that answered said he was very sorry I had been bothered and that he had placed the request for my name to be taken off the call registry. So far so good. I looked up the number again when a friend was saying she was receiving the calls too and found this site. I encourage you to, with that last string of patience you might have saved, call and ask to be removed from the registry. It seems to have worked for me and it was a little rewarding to ahve someone say "I'm sorry", even if it only in their script to do so. Hope you all are less harassed soon!!! I'm going to get some rest!
Answer the call and the line and no one said anything. This is the second call I have received like this
5 hang up calls yesterday alone. I finally called them back and followed the automated prompts to be removed. I'll post again if they continue to call.
I just got a call from this number for the first time. Thank you for the advice on removing my number from their list. Anyone know how they are getting their numbers when they include people on the do not call list?
2nd call today. Caller ID says 'telemarketer' so I don't answer the phone. They hang up when the get the answering machine.
I'm getting 10 or more calls from this phone number a day. When answered the first time they intruduce themselves as working for Walmart. How do we stop this harrasament.
Calls are hang-ups. Never leave any message.
Been receiving call from this number, never leaving any message - and they continually call back.
I have just started recieving calls from this number on my cell phone!! Twice in 25 min!!
they call several times a day. i called the number on my caller id and it just kept ringing. finally today they called and i answered the phone. it was from mastercard rewards. i told them i did not have a mastercard and then they hung up.
have called 3 days in row, doesnt leave message hangs up
Once more a call from someone saying "This is Courtesy Call" and proceeded to say they were calling on behalf of the US Deputy Association.
These calls from Las Vegas, NV have been coming in almost daily for at least 3 weeks.
They called today 3 times in ten mins. I answered on the 3rd call, the caller asked for my husband, said no message, it was just a "courtesy call." I'm sure it's linked to his Discover card.
3 TIMES IN TEN MINS!!!
Called three times in last two days on my cell. I didn't pick up!
Caller ID shows the call from Las Vegas. They say it is either the Sheriff's Office of the Fraternal Order of Police. They want me to donate money. I say I give to my local police and hang up. They call between 5:00PM and 7:00PM
They have been calling my cell phone everyday for the last couple of weeks.
these people call me a few times a week. I never answer, but if its in any reference to my ITT Tech loans, I have it set up so that sallie mae takes it out of my account. should I call back and tell them to stop calling?
888-322-2785 Rings 2 times at all hours & several times a day. This problem has been going on for months.
I get at least two calls a day from these people. I don't answer unk calls.
I have had several calls from this number I have put in a request to have this number searched with my cellular provider. I also have contacted a local business who deals with this type of issue. I plan on dealing with them in the same fashion they have done with me. Bug Bug Bug
Received 4 calls between 10:00 AM and Noon today.
No caller information.
They call for someone else, but don't seem to understand what "You got the wrong number" means. Probably all that out sourcing - these foreign idiots don't know English.
they call over and over but no message.
I got 3 calls in 2 hours from this number on my cell phone while i was at work. It is very frustrating. They didn't even leave voice message. Please remove my number.
"May I speak to ******?"
I say nothing.
They hang up.
They are also outsourced so i think its like this because its in india lol
Called for me left a message saying they are chase bank and to call them back to have a financial adviser assist in the matter. I know i'm behind on my card and tried to submit it for debt management so i believe thi sis why they called.

This number that showed up on my cell phone reads 888-685-0042

Bogus call. Hung up when answering machine picked up. Bogus Sherrif's Charity.

About goverment grants. I promissed to report them nd I'm doing that right now.
Had a call, called them back - they said it's about government grants. I promissed to report them. And I did.
Called us be no one there, hangs up.
Called two times on 02/02/2007. The second time could not even understand the womans garble. I did catch Discover and insisted on sending me something. I said NO & hung up
Just received a call. Did not answer. From other posts I suppose it was from Discover.
This number calls every other day. Don't know who it is or what they want.
These people are non-stop!! every hour they call! 4 days straight now, getting really old and they NEVER answer!
Received a number of calls but always silence on the line was experienced. When calling back, the number is listed as not in service.
Just hung up when answered call received at 9:05 p.m. Kids in bed, quite time interupted by a hang up? Not cool.
Unknown Name. Number only
only few close family and friends know my cell phone...not sure why this number called me. i didn't answer but caller id showed this number.
One call this morning, one tonight, on my cell phone. Just the number.
Didn't pick up.
zip = 91601
They KEEP CALLING AND CALLING AND CALLING...grrrr
Discover Card Payment Protect. Finally answered after months of Toll Free on cid. Have never left message. Asked to be removed. Will see what happens.
No clue who they are, wish they wouldn't call, this is a prepaid phone and i need the minutes for emergencies.
Got several calls from this number in the past week. Finally someone was on the line when I answered this morning at 10.41.
They were asking to update my information regarding some magazine subscription that I never even heard of. I just told them I never heard of that and not to call me back.
Recording when phone answered "please hold to be connected"
My caller ID just reads call from "Toll Free Call." No message. Calls quite often. I do not answer just as often. Last call was on 1 16 07 at 1905 hours local (Eastern Time Zone).
They call me every evening at 7:40. I never answer.
I don't answer and they don't leave a message.
Would not identify themselves or leave a call back no. Claimed my wife had won a vacation package in a lottery.
Had a call on 1/23 and 1/24 - no message. Got one yesterday 1/25, and a voice message over 1 min long!!! But all I could hear was background noise like from a call center. I have no intention of returning the call.
These people call my house at least 3 times a week, wanting money to buy sheriff deputies bulletproof vests. Some time back I asked one of the callers if every cent of the money donated went to the "charity." Immediately he hung up. Now the phone rings and no one says anthing when I answer.
I also just found this info:
Please report any activity in violation of this Acceptable Use Policy to: firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to:
320 Interstate North Parkway
Atlanta, GA 30339
Each complaint must include a valid return address. To enable Cbeyond to independently verify each instance of abuse, and where possible, please include in your complaint:
The IP address used to commit the alleged violation,
The date and time of such violation, and
Evidence of the violation including, if applicable, the complete text of the objectionable message, including all headers. Please do NOT send excerpted parts of a message. Sending a copy of the entire message, including headers, helps to prevent misunderstandings based on incomplete information, or information used out of context. Full headers demonstrate which path the message has taken, and may enable Cbeyond to determine whether any part of the message has been forged.
We keep getting slammed by these idiots too... The caller ID shows "Atlanta GA" and they are rude and continue to call our business... I did a little research and made a few calls and what I found out was that the number 678-391-5280 is carried by CBeyond Communications, their info is: Corporate Headquarters
320 Interstate North Parkway
Atlanta, GA 30339
For what ever reason they don't have a call annoyance or fraud division like every other communications company in America... Instead they request a police report be filed locally and the police contact them directly... I'm sure it could of been easier if they would of handled it directly, but I'll be filing away...
Got a call from them today. Didn't leave a message, so I decided to see who it was so I called back got a computer that allows you to remove you name from their list which is option #2. Said would remove my number within 24-48 hours. We'll see.
Caller was "Jim Pearson" of the "United States Deputy Sheriffs Association". He wanted money for his "annual fund drive". The Better Business Bureau says of this group: "Despite written BBB Wise Giving Alliance requests in the past year, this organization either has not responded to Alliance requests for information or has declined to be evaluated in relation to the Alliance’s Standards for Charity Accountability."
They called and asked for my son and said they were calling on behalf of ITT Tech. My son has not attended school since February. They wouldn't give me any information would only speak to my son. I have no idea what this is about. If it is regarding his Sallie Mae loan it is none of their business as he is making his payments to Sallie Mae on time. I won't be answering this call again.
These guys have called me in the past and I did fall for the whole "donation" scam the first couple times. Now they call me nearly EVERYDAY mostly between 5-9 p.m.! WAAAY to late to be calling. I'm so damn sick of them calling. Obviously by reading the rest of these comments telling them to stop isn't going to do a thing. It pisses me off.
Please take my number off your call list. I tell ya you are real professional to just hang up when someone answers. I know they are a timeshare place and want nothing to do with it. SO STOP CALLING!
Calls me 2 - 3 time a day every day. Called them no answer
See, now you people are beginning to understand. Its a cycle, 1 says talk to 2 and 2 says talk to 1. If you want them to not call you then do one thing:
1. Block the number with *60
2.Politely ask to 'be taken off of the list.'
Common sense says if you are rude or hostile to them then they will put your number down as a redial to spite you for being rude.
Received this call 5 times just this day. Im going to totally tool next time they call I am so glad that I found this site because it has made it so I will answer the phone. We have ignored it for ages and now I will not put up with it. Thank you everyone.
This is the actual website for the Nevada Attorney General, but they tell you to file your complaint with donotcall.gov I have been on the do not call list for years and am still receiving these calls. Please everyone report this number to donotcall and perhaps something can be done.
Got a call early on a Saturday morning with the person on the other end singing a song and then asked if I was so and so and then said this was your singing telegram. Called again two days later asking my husband if he was so and so and then hung up on him when he said no.
I have been getting several calls a day on both my cell phone and home phone for the last week. After no messages were ever left i finally decided to see who was behind the phone number. Now i want to answer it the next time and have some fun.
contact info found on their website-maybe if enough of us bug them, they'll stop?
Central Florida Investments, Inc.

have started getting tons of calls from numbers like this recently-no idea why-got fifth call from 8886850042 today on my cell phone during working hours, so i decided to answer and find out who it was-resort company selling vacation scams-wouldn't take me off list-someone know how to report them to the gov?
Was a representive for the art institute about salie mae loans. They called 4 times previous but this was the first time they left a message. Called back and got right through to the rep.
I find it interesting that C.Radtke says they were calling about his Visa card.
My Visa debit card just posted a random $1.05 debit from my acct...I called the bank and am getting a new card. Then I get a call from this number this morning. Didn't answer it...nor will I.
Just got a call tonight 8pm on a Sunday. No answer.
Visit the Do Not Call website and file a complaint. Also, enter your phone numbers to register in the Do Not Call Registry.
no message 1-20-07
Caller ID said Las Vegas, NV. Said he was calling for Deputy Sherriff Ass. Told him I was not interested.... he hung up without a word.
they call all the time, we asked to have our name taken off list, i now just answer phone and dont say anything, or put phone up to tv, i have kinda turned it into a game for me
I'm getting a lot of calls from them. They call from several different numbers. It is a total scam. They are identity thieves. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION! If you have already given these criminals personal information, I highly recommend that you place an initial fraud alert on your credit file. This will prevent new accounts from being opened for the next 90 days without your express authorization. To place an initial fraud alert on your credit file, call Equifax at 1-800-525-6285.
this company is very insulting, even complains to the do not call list do not work...
they wanted to speak to my son, he wasn't available, they wanted to know when was the best time to reach him, I told them evenings, they called again this morning (a week later) didn't answer, my son recently stopped going to ITT
i get calls all the time i never answer it
Called today, 3:10pm EST. They wanted to sell me magazines. When I told them they had reached a place of business, the women (who spoke with an accent I couldn't place) got flustered, although that could've been my tone that caught her off-guard.
I get 2 calls a day now for 4 days, business cell phone, they have my full name, lots of background noise as if a call center, never state their company name or business, just start asking for me by full name, subscribed to storage magazine via an email link to omeda.com ... thinking my info has been sold off or harvested or I got scammed. I'm going to have to change my number now
Has called my office at three times in the past two days. Thanks to this website, I know not to pick up. Also never leaves a message, to confirm my decision.
Called my cell. I Don't like that.
Do not send e-mail to the e-mail address listed above "email@example.com" You will likely become a victim of yet another scam. State offices do not use Hotmail accounts. I do not know the AG's e-mail but a vaild e-mail from his office is firstname.lastname@example.org found it on Google. You can report both scams at one time. Good luck
These mutha-blips keep calling,I told them to STOP calling. They keep calling atleast 4x a day. I'm getting frustrated, I have all my numbers on the do not call list. The Id says out of area. a guy said he's calling from the mastercard company concering my account and when I told him not to call he insulted me by saying "Listen, you're NOT from this country so you won't understand me" Then He hung up.
called, did not respond when i answered
I have been told several times by the person calling that they are calling on behalf of a Sherriff's Assoc. I have asked them to stop calling. They continue to call several times a day EVERY DAY for months. I've threatened lawsuits, harrassment, and they continue to call and apologize stating that they will remove me off their list each time. Can we band together and get a class action lawsuit for harrassment?!?
Call on 01/16/07 around 8:00 PM. Caller ID says "Courtesy Call". I did not answer.
courtesy call l, 8:53 pm est no one speaks just dead then hang up.
We get these calls 5+ times a day-everyday. We don't answer calls if we don't know who they are. They just won't give up.
We get calls everyday. We've gotten 3 calls in last 2 hours tonight. And, Im trying to watch "24" Those bastards! Im in Seattle. We should all report them as Art Venturo says to his attorney Gen office
Received a call this evening...picked up the phone, no one was there.
The asked for me and said i won something free and that this is west gate resorts. I said I can't afford a vaction and she said you don't know what I have to offer you and Then hung up
they called asking for money to help the sherrifs depo out for bullet proof vests it showed up as las vegas nv
Phone rang 4 times and no message left.
No message -- Caller ID just said Unavailable.
Unfortunately I have their credit card, so I'm probably an exception to the do not call list. It's still annoying!
NO NAME - This phone number has been calling me 5 times a day for the past week. I called it back and a guy answered, confirmed they were in Utah. I told him I was aware of the scam they were running and demanded to be put on the Do Not Call list. We'll see.
This number has called me 3 nights in a row. My caller ID says "courtesy call"
They do not leave a message and I don't answer the phone. But it is frustrating!
It's Discover Card trying to sell you their Card protection Service so you can skip a payment if you have issues.
called and no one answered
Caller ID says Las Vegas NV. They call at least 2-3 times a week for last month...during the day, at night and on Saturday and Sunday nights. I have caller ID but it is so annoying. Reported to donotcall.gov per the suggestion of phone company. Maybe that will work.
I have been getting these calls for about 3 weeks now. The number appears on my caller ID so I haven't been answering it.I just answered it and it was a teller marketer, so I hung up. When I called back it said it was Discover card and they had just called me about an offer. The funny thing is I'm on the National Do Not Call Registry. So I'm sure they could be liable for a hegty fine, however it's not worth my time.
I had 14 missed calls from this number when I was at work.
JUST SAYS COURTESY CALL I ON THE CALLER ID. WHEN ANSWERED, NOBODY WAS THERE.
Discover Card trying to get me to transfer balances to my card.
Received call, "marketer" from Veteran association asking for donation. Hung up on me when I said this was a business phone.
Did not answer. They let a very strange message. Sounded like someone was asking for help. They sounded like they were in trouble. Very disturbing.
I just recied a call from them and they wouldn't answer.
I answered on the 4th ring and nobody answered. They call several times a week. They won't stop. Never leaves a message.
Not sure how the hell these people got my cell number but I get calls from them at least once a day if not more. I took the advice to call them back and remove my number from their calling list -- hope that wasn't a mistake and the calls increase. From what I have read from others this is MAJOR harrassment -- isn't anything being done to these people or this "company"???? :(
I have been getting calls from this # almost every day. When I tried to call it back, I on hold for 30 minutes until I was the next call to be answered and got disconnected. This happened twice. I hate them!
DO NOT CALL 530 574 2701 AGAIN!
I called the number back and a recorded msg said that Discover card called offering a service or product. I stayed on the line and got off the list of all other future calls.
They say it is a courtesy call, shows on caller ID as that. They are looking for donations for the fire dept. I've requested them to remove our # from their call list 4 times. I have recieved these calls for over 6 months. How about a class action suite...Say, 50 million. That may stop them. I am also on the DNC list.
Caller Id says "Courtesy Call I", they call almost every day, today, Jan 4, 2007 at 4:54 pm, no one there. Who is collecting this data and who is it being reported to?
JUST got a call from them. I didn't look at the number before answering. I put my cell number on the no call list months ago after getting a call from them. I'm going to the no call website now.
called my cell while i was in class
this is Discover card telemarketing. (not acrually Discover, a company who gets paid to sign you up. They will offer other "secured" crds as well

I attend ITT Tech, and my mother got a call today while I was at work. They said that they were calling on behalf of ITT Tech. I tried to call the number that they left 18008354453 but it will not even connect. I called ITT Tech and they didn't know anything about it.
Same as everyone else. Called twce in two days. My daughter answered and no one would say a thing, so she hung up. Does this site do anything other than take info?
I've gotten 3 calls from this number so far. They seem to call me every day. I'd like to know who it is. It just showed the number.
Got another call from this number. No voicemail.
This is Discover Card trying to sell promotional credit card loans. I do have an account with them.
Just called ... no msg. It's happened before. Quit!!
caller id showed courtesy call. Hung up and didn't say anything.
Well..I got a phone call from my parents this morning telling me ITT called and said that I was exiting from school, and which I had no idea what they were talking about, so I called my school, which were on break right now, and so they were trying to figure it out, and then I got a call from this weird number, and I didn't answer, and typed it on google, and found this, and then called my parents back, and informed ITT about it,
I would just like to know how they got my phone number,and what is there movtive in doing this.
I got two calls from this number today (12-28-06). One was at 9:30 am and one was at 4:30 pm (eastern time). It said unknown name and the number (678-391-5280). I called it back and got a voice mail of someone named John (who sounded very young and like a personal voice mail message). I'm going to report it as harrassment to my phone company if it continues.

They've called me over 10 times. It's annoying.
Didn't know the number, so didn't answer. Called back and the answering machine does NOT identify who this is. Just tells me to leave my name and number if I want to be added to their 'Do not call' list.
Recieved a call from them 5 days after asking to be taken off their list. My VOIP is now set to forward their calls to their 888 number.
I also received a phone call from this number, did not leave a message. Funny thing, I went to ITT too.
My son just graduated last week from catherine Gibbs. I got a call from this number, they were mean and then hung up on me. I called the number back and they don't say who they are. This all is very strange!
Just rec'd about the 5th call from these people. Interruption to my day.
I get calls from this number all the name. I never answer but it doesn't stop them.
Called twice this morning at 6:00AM on a Saturday.
I've been getting calls from this number for a few days and they would just hang up on me, but today someone told me they were from Visa, Corporate. I jumped in and said don't call me anymore, Im getting too many calls from this number, and he got angry and said that he would call me 20 times a day from now on. Thats when I hung up.
I need to notify someone about this because I really don't want to change my number, but Im not sure who.
I just started receiving these calls in the last few days. I also just received a new CC recently... and activated it the day before i started getting calls. Coincidence? I think NOT!
I've received other calls in the last week from "offers" quailifed for because I have a VISA card. NEVER have I had these calls until I accepted a new card.
Next campaign... get the CC companies to quit selling our information to these bullsh*t telemarketing companies!
If you call them back, there is an option to remove your number from their list. The message says it will be processed within 48 hours. We will see!
Got my first call from this number tonight. Answering machine picked it up. The idiots did not even realize the answering machine picked up. I sat there and listed to a lot of backround noice like a phone bank. You could hear them making several calls. They are harvesting phone numbers for other telemarking companies and they are employed by several national fundraising organizations nationwide, valid????? Beware, gives credible comapanies a bad name. My caller ID said Out of Area, my Zip is 76311
Just got a call from these guys... no one said anything, and hung up.
It's amazing, I didn't expect a web site with people like me receiving these calls!!!! They call every day, at every hour...
678-391-5280 called twice so far today, 12/21/06. Caller ID readout said "Unavailable".
Los Angeles, CA
I Blocked (888) 322-2785, so they got around that by having their number displayed as 18883222785 on caller ID. My machine answers and they don't leave a message.
Yes it's the annoying Discover tele-marketing people again, tyring to sell me something they need me to need - so they can make their commissions.
Been getting these calls with no message on the machine. I do not trust them and think it is some exploitation of present privacy laws so I do not answer them. In the past similar answered calls have yeilded Discover Card marketing. It is sad that some of the laws designed to protect us often become the tools of the people we seek protection from. Shame on our legislature.
They have called my work phone- asked for IT manager- didn't get ahold of him, talked to me, asked about the company, asked for my name and birthday, I wouldn't give it to them, hung up on them. They've called back asking for me by name, 6-8 times a day.
recieved a call from this numebr on Tuesday at 8:55 pm
they called on december 11th, saying they were from Mastercard and were doing a survey. i would get a $100 gift card i could use at any major dept store. they asked for my date of birth, i said 'i am not supposed to give that out, this sounds like a credit card scam' and they hung up. mastercard says they have had this # on complaints before. they did not, nor do they ever do that kind of call for surveys or to give gifts. they said they get too many situations like this to really do anything about it.
Caller ID: Las Vega, NV
Received call @7:30 PM
Plan to report them and hope others do too!
These calls keep waking me up in the morning and they've hung up by the time I rush out of the bed to pick it up. So much for the "do not call" list.
I have been getting calls from this # for weels on end. Sometimes 2 or 3 times a day. I too have tried to call back with no answer. I will get these BASTERDS!!!!
between these dopes and faith and family I beleive I'll go nuts
Called 12/15/06, appx. 1:58 p.m., EST. Sick of these people. Maybe not enough complaints at www.donotcall.gov
Called Discover's customer service # just now. They said that this is one of theirs and they're "marketing", trying to sell something. She looked up my # and said it didn't show up in their system at all, which is curious since I have an account with them. Anyway, she said she added my name/# to their "do not call" register (why the gov.'t one is insufficient remains a burning question...). I'll wait and see if the calls stop.
There wasn't a Name displayed, but "8886850042" was displayed. When I answered the call and said "hello" the phone call was hung up by the caller without a sound from the other end. The call was received at 11:23 on 12/14/2006.
I received a call on my cell phone and when I answered it and said "hello" the phone call was hung up by the caller.
I reported this company to the FCC. Their supervisor, Sean, was unhelpful and rude. I went through their procedure to be removed from the lists and it didn't work.
Called 12/14/06, appx. 11:30 a.m., EST.
Recd. the call
we get them on a regular basis never anyone there. Usually just a dial tone.
Please take my phone number off your list. My number is 262-470-6000.

They have called my phone about 5 times in the last two days but they won't leave amessage. Siloam Springs AR,72761
Called at approximately 1:11 pm, EST.
They almost got me too for the National Verterans Services Fund. Maybe this will help you guys.

He called and asked me to confirm my creditcard# and my name, I said no. He said
it was a rewards program and he already had my #'s and was going to send me free gas cards and a subscription to a magazine, I said no. he got very rude and has been calling 5-6 times a day every day. I did a google search on this phone # and found out he is using peoples credit card #'s and signing them up for different subscriptions they did not want costing hundreds of dollars. Watch out for this scam. and call consumer affairs in GA. 404-656-3791, and watch your CC bills carfully.
Just call and press 2. They are in violation of the National Do Not Call Registry. If enough of us report these kinds of calls perhaps they will stop all together. I saw that there was form at the bottom of this message page, be sure to fill it out to report them.
They didnt leave a VM, CID said: "Unknown"
After looking at all the comments about these calls from this number I think what they are doing is harvesting valid phone numbers to re-sell to other Phone soliciting companies.
By waiting for you to answer or by letting your answering maching pick up it registers it as valid number. This could be one of the things going on from this place. By letting their predicitive dialer make tha calls it allows them to list the number for later call back in an attempt to scam you or for resale to other scammers.
Just a theroy.
The sit.wav file on an answer maching would work against them.
I have dealt with these people before. My husband and I went on a Westgate Resorts free trip to Vegas. We followed all their rules which included going to their presentation at the appropriate time and day and at the end of the presentation we turned down their scam and left without much hassle. The plane tickets and hotel stay for 2 nights cost us a total of $160, so it was very cheap and worth it to us. The only frustrating thing about the experience was that we were originally told on the phone that we would receive "A hundred dollars in casino chips" and that if we wanted to cash in and take the money we could. Well, when we got there we were told that we would receive "4, $25 chips that could be used at black jack or roulette only and could not be exchanged for cash." So that was a little different than what they had led us to believe. Then we go up to the black jack table and right off the bat, my husband gets a 21. Well, instead of the $25 chip being treated as such and us winning $62.50, we get handed a real $25 chip in exchange. (i.e. one that COULD be exchanged for money). We were pissed even as the dealer explained to us this additional rule that we had not been told.
So all in all we got a pretty cheap trip, it was just frustrating that they misled us about the chips. Either way, I don't know why they'd call us again because we shouldn't be eligible for their trip again.
They called my number 6 times in one day, in three sets of two. In other words, they called, received no anwer, called right back, and still received no answer. They repeated these steps twice more throughout the day.
This number has been calling me every morning at 7:50am claiming to be from the Art Institute. I told one operator that I'm not talking to him because it's a phishing scam and he hung up on me. Yesterday the operator told me he had all my info and that it is not a phishing scam, I told him I didn't trust him, and he replied "I don't care if you don't trust me". I obviously hung up.
I don't answer unidentified
I really value this site.
I will contribute any info that will help others.
Been getting calls from this number 3-4 times a day for about 2 weeks. Never answered.
I see the number on my caller ID frequently. Last night I answered the phone. A man said hello, my first name. I said yes. He said "how are you". I answered "okay, who is this?" He said "This is Raheem, what it is, is we don't like white people. I just hung up.
I just received a call from this number. I called it back, no one answers(surprise).On caller ID it say Las Vegas, NV.
I figured out this is a child that has nothing to play with so he uses the phone. Ha ha
They call my cell phone repeatedly. The guy said that he was going to send me Wal-Mart gift cards. He had my address and the last 4 digits of my visa card. He spoke very fast but I cuaght on when he mentioned the numbers. Then he got rude and hung up. This is obviously a scam.
I have recieved about a dozen calls from this number. They have called anywhere from 8 AM to 10 PM, even on weekends. I never answer a number that is not in my phonebook.
My phone does not ID hte caller. This is 28 Nov. They have been calling me for over a week now.
This appears to have started when I ordered a 'as seen on tv' product - the automatic can opener - and gave my cell phone number. BIG MISTAKE. GIVE FAKE NUMBERS WHEN ORDERING THIS CRAP.
I get about one call a day from this number. I'm usually the one to answer. Sometimes I answer, sometimes I don't. Always get a click.
please quit calling my phone number 208-739-5547
I received a call from 678-391-5280, Atlanta NW, GA on 11/27/06 at 1:30 PM. They had the last 4 numbers of one of my credit card (not VISA) and wanted some personal information so they could send me gifts that were owed to me. Reviewing comments from others about this number, it's an obvious scam. The scary part is they have the last 4 digits of my card. I told them I was not interested in their offer, and they said they would call back tomorrow and hung up.
I got a call from this number, but did not answer it. They did not leave me a voice mail. I am a former ITT Tech student, and am very close to the end of the 6 month leeway before paying loans.
call and says that i am not enrolled in school with itt. they call everyday m-f. i am still enrolled, i told them i am not telling them any information about me or my school. i told them that i had researched their company and know that they are frauds, and if they did not stop calling i would report them to the states attorney general
I have received a call several times from this number it comes up Las Vegas, NV. This particular time I answered and they hung up, I called back and noone answered.
We are getting these calls almost daily. Caller ID says 'Courtesy Call I'. We either ignore or just pick up & hang up the phone. It's getting old. I'm glad I found this site.
We didn't answer it, we knew better. Now I'm glad we didn't answer based on the reports here.
I gave a donation to the USDSA last year for 12.00. I have had many cranks and hang ups from this number....now a guy actually answered, and knew my name and asked if I was ready to give again.
He said thanks for the 12.00 donation earlier this year, and asked if I still lived on my street. I told him I was broke this year due to x-mas, and to hold on. I wanted to record the convo.....when i got back he was gone. Is the 12.00 donation I gave to the USDSA United states deputy sherrifs' dept legit ? I plegded the 12.00 and they mailed me the bill. Or was it this number ? If not how do they have my name and address and phone number.
They keep calling when I tried to call them back no one answers. The number comes up as a courtesy call. When they called this morning someone was on the other line speaking spanish and when I said hello they hung up.
calls and never leaves messages...has called numberous times over several months
Called on 11/21, 11/20, 11/18, 11/16
called my grandmas house said it was the sherrifs dept looking for me. 11-22-06@7:19 pm
my father just died in an industrial accident and these guys are in my neighbor and we are under surrveliance and these guys keep calling and hanging up it says courtesy call and it was on 11/22 @8:50pm
Found this number on my caller ID & did reverse look up on anywho.com. Was not listed so as with other numbers came here & found that it is a number I don't want to answer either & I am on the DNCL.
Likely this is just a crap firm that many possibly legit causes hired to do their calling, and they just need to show a number of calls made instead of results,, which seems weird but it's obvious they don't care.
Called last night and this evening...no answer again.
I am getting sick of this...if I am ever in Vegas, they are in trouble
I received another call from the same area 702 prefix I think it is the same guys if you don't answer the first one they try later with another number. The guy that called this time stated that I helped last time will I help again when I said no he quickly hung up just a ok bye. The legal telemarketers will continue 2 more times before giving up.
get a call once or twice a week sometimes two times a day and they will not leave a messaage.
Just got a call from this same number on my work phone! Didn't answer though. Just looked up the number right away, I'm glad I did.
Who are these people?
I'm a day sleeper and they woke twice today
We've gotten about four calls from this #,they all show as courtesy call 1,11/19/06, I am also on the no call registry
Just appeared on my id. I don't know who it is from.
I have gotten to the point that when I see this #, I just pick it up and hang it back up again!
Answered. No response
I let it ring because it was not familiar, saw it on my caller ID, number only. Never left voice mail.
These idiots called and just hung up.
Where do I sign up to get paid to hang up on people when making outgoing phones calls?
Credit cards are a billion dollar industry so I can't imagine that this is Discover making these bothersome calls.
I receive these calls on my cell phone.
These are both the same people...2239872400 and 2500. Same people, same thing. You can't call them back because their number does not recieve calls. Constantly call but never leave a message. It doesn't matter what day or time they call.
Calls repeatedly it seems like 24 hours. Have been called at 2am anytime during the day and 10pm, 11pm...
I'm getting 10 calls peer day from 223-987-2500 and 223-987-2400. Calling back I get "your call cannot be completed as dialed. Prease hang up and try again." Driving me crazy.
I just got call from these parasites. I immediately googled the # and found this website. There ought to be some legislature against this type of behavior.
Storage Magazine subscription details confirmation
their website is searchstorage.com
Called evening of 13 Nov 2006 and again at 8:50PMM PST Nov 14 2006. Caller ID was "Courtesy Call I" ... a voice with a Spanish accent said "Hey! Hello!" did not respond when I asked "Who is this?"
I called them back and pressed two as soon as the recording came on at 8pm, and someone answered and I said take me off your calling list and she said to confirm my ph# and in 72 hrs, nobody would ever call me again. yay! White Power!!!
calls ea. week, a scam i think
Received a call from this number on Nov. 14, 2006 at 1:05 pm. Caller ID shows "Out of Area" for this number 1-800-260-8720....and they did not leave a message but I could hear back ground noise.
says RCC on the caller id
They called but I couldn't get to the phone and they never leave a msg. Often they just hang up unless my wife answers. I know it is a third pary company calling on behalf of 'Deputy Sheriff' and others. Third party companies are not exempt from Do Not Call. On the rare time that I did talk to them I told them to take me off their list or I will report them to the FCC.
These folks are now also dialing in from 800-424-5004. They say that they're from Chase. I say no f#@*%ing way. I now have to change my number because they will never cease!
They started calling again! This time I wasn't home and hubby out of town, noticed a message on my machine and it was them, no talking, just breathing!! Did it again the next day, didn't leave a message, but the breathing. Have saved it on my machine. Does anyone know who you would report this to, Attourney General? Anybody I can threaten them with next time they call. Sure would appreciate the help, cause it sounds like they just won't stop. I even asked our local Police Chief and he said not to give.
Enough! Two to three time a day I get calls from this number. I tried to call back to see who it was and no answer. When I answer I get nothing on the other end. I have reported this to my phone company and will report it to everyone until it stops!
They are crude and foul mouthed
I have been receiving call(s) from this number on my work phone almost everyday for the last 3 weeks and never answered it, but it starts to get on my nerve. what can I do to stop them?
I have been receiving calls from this number every hour for the last two days. The caller ID says Ohio Call. Thye ae getting past my privacy manager feature, which will not put through any caller that does not identify themselves.
Just got this call and they left no message prob a scam--Actually been getting a lot of strange numbers lately on my cell
Suddenly receiving numereous calls on a Cingular Cell from: 2239872400, 2239872500, "New Call" with no number, and 0118004245004. We answered once or twice with no response. Now we do not answer. Maybe a dozen or nore the last few days.
This # called, it rang twice, I answered & they hung up, no one said anything.
First started as a "free gift promotion" to provide a "free" Walmart gift card. Quoted last 4 digits of a valid VISA. Kept calling then said I was selected at random. "Sponsors wanted to give me a free Walmart gift card. 6 calls over 48 hours to business cell phone. Knew there was a controversial Walmart attempting to be constructed nearby.
I got a call from this number at 8:30 pm cst tonight (11-9-06). Caller id says unknown name. When I answered, they hung up, but I could hear background noise. My zip code is 72401.
The Caller identified himself as a deputy sheriff
Got a call from these people earlier, since I didn't recognise the number I didn't answer. The message they left said they were calling from/on behalf of ITT Tech (which I graduated from a little over a year ago). If they call again I'll pick up and see what's going on.
Have recieved the calls before but haven't been at my desk. I was finally around for one of them and the person at the other end was asking for me I told them they called a holding line. Person kept asking for a person by name and I told them they were in a meeting. They then asked for an IT manager. I told them they were in a meeting. The person then asked if the person they were calling for (me) was a manager and I said no. He then promptly hung up.
according to my IP-phone log, five calls the last five workdays: called today (Thu) at 2:44PM EST, yesterday @ 1:54PM (left one-second-long dead-air VM), two days ago @ 11:21AM, last Fri (03 Nov 2006) @ 3:18PM, and the day before that @ 10:19AM.
I've been called by this number for several days and I cannot understand the language that they speak. I hope they will never call me again!!
What purpose does it serve to let it ring 4 times and then hang up? Seems to me they just do it to annoy us!
Caller from this number (Indian accent) left a message on my machine (seemed to think someone had picked up) asking for me. Caller ID said 'Ohio Call.' I searched online for the area code and it is listed on some kind of hacker site as a 'loop line' area code, which, according to the anarchist's cookbook, the phone company uses to test equipment. Can't say I really understand what's going on -- but seems like this is a scam of some sort using the 'fake' loop line number to shield the origin of the call.
Called twice; once in 08 nov at 8:37am MST and another in 07 nov at 3:56 pm.
I had this call and checked it out and I believe it is discovery, I called the number on my statement and ask them about the 2785 number and they said it was their security department, I think they are trying to sell idenity theft insurance....I think when I get my discovery card paid off I am going to close it. They are on the edge of being very dishonest.
I think they are just telemarketers trying to find out what time someone will answer and they sell that information to others so other telemarketers know what is the best time to call and get someone. We never answer out-of-area calls, unknown name calls, etc.
They are persistent.
Direct call to work phone.
Another site www.ripoffreport.com

Surplus Alert Success Team - PERFORUMARKETING.COM
haven't investigated though
See John's of 10/16
Repeated calls to us from this number, but no one at their end on the line when we answer. What's with this?
In the past three days I have received 11 calls on my cell phone from this number. I have not answered since I did not know the number or the area code. The caller ID just lists the phone number, except in three instances it was listed as Unavailalbe #. They do not leave a message or anything. This number calls as early as 8:00 am and as late as 6:00 pm.
My Interceptor ID catches all of these calls and I neber hear the phone ring. This was one of 5 I received yesterday and I didn't know it until I checked the machine's call log.
They called me 7 times today ranging from 7:30 AM to 9:00 PM CST nobody there each time. Calls from 1-223-987-2400 - From what I've read Chase bank???
I've never had an account with them and now I will make sure I never do.
This is most likely a bill collector for First Revenue Assurance. READ THIS THOUGH---> Google the phrase "sit.wav" download it. Play this on your outgoing message for voicemail or answering machine. then pause for 1 second and leave your greeting. Tell all friends/family/work that you did this on purpose. Leave it in your greeting for 30days and telemarketers are gone. Also get on the DONOTCALL.GOV list. Your welcome, Bob "The RepairMan"
these calls are from hsbc bank auto loans there real number is800-836-6469
its like 6 times a day for the past month. i just curse them out now. everytime, i curse them out. they still call. will it ever stop??
my id called it courtesy call and all the dude said way ...yo and hung up it has happend before
Yeah, same thing, they call 3 to 4 times a day, and only ask to speak to my husband.
called at 1pm CDT
Call ID says UNKNOWN NAME - no message
They call in spurts and when I say "She's not here", the hang up. They will not talk to my husband, only ask for me, by name like we are old friends, then they started asking for my daughter, who is in college, and when I said for the 10th time that she was not here, the guy called me a liar! Very rude! I noticed that he called again while I was at work today, which means that he will call again tonight and I am in a bad enough mood that he will get an earful!!! They are relentless!! Will let you know how it turns out!
This idiot keeps calling and asking for my husband. When I tell him he's not here, he hangs up and calls back later. Every time I try to stop him and tell him not to call back he hangs up on me. When I call back the number off my caller ID it's a busy signal. It shows 702-388-9487 - Unknown Name
called multiple times on 11/6/06
called home in Tucson 2 hours after same # minus 100 called and also failed to leave a message.
I got so tired of these calls I bought an Interceptor ID. You can Google that up and purchase it from a couple of different vendors. It was frustrating to program at first, their directions in the box suck to the max. I called Tech support 3 times, talked with very nice guys who agreed about the directions but walked me through. I've had maybe 20 political and other calls today and not one got through. The only way I know they tried is to look at the log on my interceptor. It only blocks what I tell it to so my wife and friends call through every time with no problems. At last, I beat these bastards!!!
I got a call from this number twice in one morning, while I as asleep: Once at 8:28am and again at 9:03am.
I decided to search for the number because when I put it in to see where it was from, my phone didn't list a state where the area code was assigned.
There was no voice mail left for either call.
Been calling me every day for a week. At least 4 times a day. Very, very aggrivating.
I entered my number in a do not call list just as Scott Burns said he did. Since then I keep getting telemarketing calls. Greenville MI
This number calls day and night seven days a week no answer and when I let the machine take it, they hang up. It wont stop.
i have this number calling my cell phone alot and i call back and all i get is this call cant be completed as dailed
About 4:20 PM Sunday received a call from this number but they wouldn't say anything. Tried hanging up and then picking the phone back up several times but the caller was still there and wouldn't speak. Eventually they hung up and I was able to use *69 to get the caller's number.
it is chase in india they wouldn't
tell you anything about it either!!!
called me twice very early in the morning. they kept repeating my name and mentioned chase bank.
It shows as "Toll Free Call" they are calling at least once per day sometimes early in the morning sometimes as late as 9:30 at night.
What really aggravates me (more than usual) is the call last night - 8:40PM - no soliticing should be allowed at all, much less after 8PM
Keep getting these calls...no one leaves a message. Calls any time of day.
I'm getting 6 to 10 calls a day for the last week. I refuse to answer because I don't know anyone fromt hat area code. My friend answered and the man on the line was very rude and hung up.
They are calling a business. We have direct phone numbers for employees. They have been calling for about 2 weeks. Usually 2-3 times a day. Really annoying!!
Rec'd a call from this number on 11/3/06 @ 11:24am EST. My caller ID at work only gives # so I don't have a name. I didn't answer and they didn't leave a message. Next time I'll answer and give them a hard time.
phone number 888-322-27
I have talked with chase bank they said those number was not theres but I also no those numbers are private numbers. Thats why you can't get any information on them. I had one call from them about 2 hours ago. Not very happy :(
Wow, I din't realize other people look up phone numbers that annoy them too! I live in WI got a call at 5:30pm from this number. It was a hang up with "Courtesy Call I" on caller ID. I emailed the email address given Richard 9-9-06 and now I'm thinking, "great they have my name and email!". I also called the annoyance call number posted on 11-01-06 and it is only usable from 8a-5p mountain time! I too called the number back after being hung up on and got no answer.
I have caller ID, hardly ever answer when I don't know who it is. I take notes of repeat numbers.
I have received at least 3-4 calls today from this number. It says "out of area" on caller ID. When I try to call it back, it starts ringing before I can finish dialing the number, then says this call cannot be completed.
I get about 3 calls a day from Westgate resort. They were no rude but very excited to be at work. I can understand that if the call was made during the day instead of 9:00p.m. at night.
This number has been calling me. 11/2/06 @ 12:13 pm, 9:07 pm, 8:46 am, 8:07 am. 11/1 @ 8:27 pm, 7:56 pm, 7:46 pm, 7:15 pm, 6:45 pm, 1:54 pm, 12:53 pm, 11:36 am, 8:22 am. 10/31 8:08 pm, 7:32 pm, 6:46 pm, 8:30 am
She called me and told me she heared I was interested in trip to vegas. She said get out a pen and paper for details. I said how much is this gonna cost? She said well get out a pen and paper and.... I interupted and said "No thats alrite" at this point she just hangs up, rude bitch. Don't call me anymore either. I don't do business with rude people who can't even answer 1 simple question. BTW, to everyone here. I got an email that said it was from the smoke shop, after opening it it said " ****************NATIONAL TOBACCO SURVEY*****************
FREE* $100 Cigarette Gift Card!
WHICH DO YOU PREFER: A. MARLBORO Cigarettes B.CAMEL Cigarettes or C.
NO Cigarettes (I Do Not Smoke).
I started the survey and at the point it insisted I give my SSN to a college I ended it. So I quess the decided to give my information to the people from vegas anyway. I know it was this because I checked a box free vegas vacation.
I receive phone calls 30 minutes apart all day long...from two different numbers 223-987-2500 and 223-987-2400...When number is called back the recording says not accepting incoming calls...
got a call from this number on 11/2, went online to look it up cause i had no idea who it was...
I have been receiving phone calls from this number every evening since last Monday. I never answered but it annoyed me a lot.
In order to assist you with unsolicited, annoyance calls, please contact
the Annoyance Call Bureau at 800-582-0655 or contact your local police
department at their non-emergency contact number.
Make a recording if at all possible.
have been receiving about 10 of these calls per day for days now. they verified thay are Chase Bank and knew of this number. They said to call 1-888-800-6415 to get calls to end. We are not now or have we ever been a Chase customer. We have had the same phone number for 30 years so we didn't get a number that formally belonged to a chase customer.
I have had both of theses number 223-987-2400 and 223-987-2500 Call I called Chase Credit Card service and ask to speak with a manager he really wanted me to tell my account I told him I wouldn't give out that information till I spoke with a manager. Well They put me on hold for a long time so I just hung up. I have not received a call from either numbers yet.
they call and when i answer they just hang up i call on a different phone they wont answer. id like to stick my foot you, you know where
I have gotten numerous calls from this number. They call on a Sunday night, 9 PM during the week and my called ID says Las Vegas, NV. I finally picked up and told them to stop calling or I was going to report them. I am on a no call list and everything.
Calls every day from 888-322-2785. They never leave a message.
THis number keeps calling over and over. Stating Courtesy Call on my caller Id
Call comes up as OUT OF AREA, it is a scheme...."your credit is in jeopardy, etc, we have your chase bank account info in front of us and if you will just verify the info we have, we will pay this outstanding bill (sometimes 23 dollars, 77 dollars, or 200 odd dollars, the amount varies) and your good credit will be restored." From India but for a US company in Pallentine Illinois.....completely fraudulent. Don't fall for it, report to FTC.
Unknown Name. No message
I got a call from this number and also the same number but last 4 digits 2400.
I agree that it's not Chase trying to collect money. I do have a Chase cc account but i haven't ever missed a payment, so they would have no reason to call me 5 times a day. And what credit card company cares enough to save you from the late fees anyway? That's how they make money. Plus if they are trying to get money, they'd leave a message. All I get is background noise.
courtesy call I
I honestly dont think this is chase at all. its too shady. They started asking my boyfriend for his bank account # to take the money out to pay his CC bill. i wouldnt doubt if they were just trying to steal peoples account Numbers. Been calling my cell for the past 3 weeks. LI, NY.
They called all the time a few months ago around august then it stopped. Then tonight they called again. 10/30/2006
Received a call, no message from this number, every day for several weeks. I don't answer.
it is Chase Bank's collection agent my daughter owes them money, so they call us 10 time a month some lady how can't speak english
"Out of Area"
To contact Chase, simply call 1-800-654-9230. I don't understand why people get so mad at a company that 'lends' them hundreds of dollars, then when you miss a payment the company has the courtesy to try and contact you to see what's going on. to prevent you from getting late fees, and to prevent your credit score from damage. The people who get mad about this are idiots. If someone owed me hundreds or thousands of dollars, I'd be calling them a bunch too.
this is Chase bank's outbound credit card collections trying to contact a cardholder who's contact # is your phone number. If you do not own or have any affiliation with Chase, then your phone number was once used by a card holder, sometimes phone companies 'recycle' phone numbers.. If you are affiliated with Chase, pay your credit card bill to bring it current and they'll stop tryin to collect.
this number keeps appearing on my son's cell phone about ten times each day. when i call back, it says the call cannot be completed.
No caller I.D. "unknown" @ 5:55P.M CTS.
I received a call yesterday from unknown at 8:41 am. Then at 8:35 another call from NAME UNAVAILABLE. Both times asking for my husband. When I asked where they were calling from on Saturday, they said CHASE. Then this morning, when I asked who was calling, they continued to ask for my husband. I continued to ask who was calling and they hung up. At 9am this same morning, UNKNOWN called again asking for my husband, however this time they pronounced his first name wrong.
This number has just started calling me! 8am on a Sunday!
IT'S GETTING FRUSTRATING. I DON'T WANT TO TALK TO YOU AND DID YOUR REMOVE PROCESS. PLEASE STOP CALLING MY PHONE.
I have received calls from this number several times. I do not answer because not known number but when I call back it rings and rings and rings.
get these calls once a day for a while, then they stop, then they come back. I never answer them, but when the machine picks up they leave dead air, very annoying.
They call 7 days a week, Several times a day. Driving us crazy.
This number has called me every night for weeks on end. I've only picked up a couple times, and it's usually someone asking for donations for the Fire Department. After I explain that I don't give monetary information over the phone, both times they hung up on me.
Today, 10/26/06 got 5 calls,at 8:03 PM;8:25pm;8:38 pm;8:44 pm;9:17pm. I am on computer and have Call Wave, so I receive the Caller ID. Getting these calls every day for the last month. Never answer an unknown call.
It's Chase wanting you to buy something
I have received 4 calls today. The last call was just 10 minutes ago, and it rang 15 times. In the past week, I have received calls as early as 8:00 a.m., to as late as 9 p.m. I refuse to answer the call, since I don't know who it is. If this is Chase, then they need to get their act together and quit annoying me with these calls
Got a call from that number and do not want that number to call me back. don't recognize the phone number, please ask them who they are.
I was on long distance to Ireland and these clowns were calling me, I never answered them so I have no idea what they want. I am on the no call list so they had better leave me alone.
glad to know i'm not the only one being bothered by these idiots.
courtesy call 10-24-06 4:29pm
10-23-06 5:02pm 10-19-06 5:51pm and many more times that I can't get back to on the caller id.
I have received multiple calls from both this number and 223-987-2400. A couple of times, I answered and the caller asked for "Betty". Unfortunately, answering my phone has resulted in them calling no less than 5 times per day for the past couple of weeks. I have also received numerous calls from "unavailable" during the same time period.
This person calls me incessantly. I try not to answer, but the times I've done so accidentally, all I hear is background static. Very annoying cell spammer.
why don't they just say...
I have recieved 5 calls in the past week from 702-388-9487, the most recent being 10/24 at 6:18 PM, caller ID comes up as "Cortesy Call I"
It is Chase; they must have a collection center in India (they are willing to do jobs that most people here in America won't. They work graveyard shifts for the "honor" of working for an American company that pays them better). They do not leave a message because here in the US it is illegal for collectors to leave voicemails; it can be viewed as harrassment. Just ignore the call and use the number on your statement to clear up your account.
I have noticed that if you listen before saying hello, you will hear many people in background asking for other people over what sounds like to be a donation request center. It almost sounds like a busy bookie gambling house.
got the same call! but they do leave me a message. They say "is this ...? and they say my first and last name!!! when i pick up they hang up
702-388-9487 calls my home at least one a day but they
don't leave a message and I don't pick up.
I have been getting this all day too and 223-987-2400. WTF? Leave a message, I have a case card and I think I am all paid up. this is quite annoying, should be illegal.
In upstate NY receive calls from 223-987-2500 constantly does anyone know how I can stop receiving. Phone company does not offer call blocking in our area.
Shows as three missed calls, called back and just rings and rings.Just tried again and the line was busy,hmmm?It's a Vegas number and I just returned from there tonight just before the call. Weird! Just more scams but annoying at that!
Caller ID: Courtesy Call
Somebody on the line by the name of Will Stein (Starr). When I asked what it was about, they hung up. Date: 10/23/06; Time: 7:47 pm.
I am registered on the do not call list. All of a sudden, last week I started getting 5-6 calls from unknown numbers nationwide. They do not leave messages. What service got ahold of my number?
please don't hang up on me more
who called my phone?
This is the 1st time I got this call. Nobody said anything from the other end.
They have been calling 4-5 times a day since 15 Oct 2006. Answered once and only static on line.
"Courtesy called" appeared on my Caller ID about 9:40 P.M. on October, 20, 2006. The number was 702-388-9487. I am in southern Ohio.
DO NOT CALL AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
8883222785 got this so many times, it's very annoying. Are they legit?
started getting calls this week...on my cell phone...when i call it back it says this number cannot be completed as dialed
I've talked to the representative from the company and it was just straight fishy. They said they represented the "Art Institute" which is close to the name of a school I have graduated from and that they were requesting information about my loan repayments. I am still in grace period and no loans are due, besides the fact that the school has nothing to do with my repayment. The did not mention Sallie Mae and they started asking for things like social security #'s etc. so I hung up and they call more now than before. It started as In Dor Am and now it's RCC. Don't talk to these people.
they call us all of the time. when my husband finally answered they asked for me specifically. He asked who was calling and they hung up.
Coincidence or not....created account on Southwest airlines, 1 hour later getting calls from this #.
I googled the 2 numbers and found this site. I had no idea who it was untill reading this site. I called Chase, they said yes it was them because me account was overdue. I have been with Chase for years. I was late 1 month out of 5 years and this is thier customer service. I spoke with a manager and cancelled my cardservice. here is chase's number 1800-945-2000 call them and tell them to stop it
Yes, they KEEP calling me and today I finally called the number back and can't even get through! I have excellent credit so NO ONE is attempting to collect money from me.
called today, 10/19/06, once at 8:50am, then again at 10:15am...no message either time.
I have gotten several calls. They just sit there and hang up. Why would they call and not say anything?
called 5 times today and did leave a message
i do have a credit card with chase bank, but these people never leave me a message (i make a point not to answer 'unavailable' calls on my cell, or those numbers that i do not recognize: i.e. the 2400 and 2500 numbers). - they call me about 4-7 times daily. usually early in the morning and then once or twice later in the evening. - is this really some sort of fraud? or does chase bank/having a chase credit card actually have something to do with it?
keep calling my cell phone all day long average calls a day 6 of then before 3:00 pm
These people call repeatedly. I've not a clue who they are since I invariably lift the receiver and replace it, but they have an uncanny ability to get me up from my afternoon nap. BLAST!
Got a call from this number tonight...asked for my husband by name, but I replied "WHO" and the guy hung up...have had 4 to 5 calls from this number over the past few weeks, usually they don't say anything...don't know what they are up to, but they need a new hobby.
Called 5 times today, and several over the last week. They never leave a msg.
do not call
Shows up on our caller ID as "Courtesy Call". They've called several times. We've tried to answer to tell them not to call, but they hang up on us if we answer! This is definately a Las Vegas #. We've tried to call it and it just rings and rings.
They keep calling me and when I answer they hang up. I am no the NATIONAL DO NOT CALL LIST This means YOU!!!!!!!!
This number rang in my office, and they left no message. I called back, and there was no answer.
they have called several times in the past 2 or 3 weeks. i have answered twice and the first time they asked to speak to my fiance by name. i told them she wasnt in could i take a message and they said no. last night they called and and had a lot of back ground noise but said he was pandora's box something i didnt want to mess with.
got the call today at 9 am. didnt answer it but googled it and i came across this website.. now im a little freaked out. i hope i dont get any more calls.
They are calling my child's phone non-stop, at all hours. How can I make this harassment cease? They leave constant messages, once the recording of a drum, it's utterly bizarre.
i have been getting these phone calls non-stop. i get at least 10 calls a day from them from the early morning to past 9pm.
WTF is going on? more than half of my calls are from them
This number just called me at 9:40pm on a Monday night. Didn't answer the call. It was on my cell phone.
I received yet another call from this number, this time at 9:10PM CDT. Past call hours. Also received calls from 702.383.9487. Never leaves message.
3rd time they called for some "Ramirez" person.
They called me 10/16 11:05 13:36; They let it ring three times and they hang up. Most likely if you hear dead air they gave up and moved to the next call.
Its an outbound call center, from the times reported by others its most likely collections. I am also recieving collection calls from chase.
Record the times they call you. If chase gives you a hard time saying "we called x times before" Ask them for the times (yes they do have each one recorded). If they match explain the problem: that someone called X times, you werent able to talk to someone due to dead air and disconnects. It probably wont matter but if this belongs to chase and they get feedback, they might change their contract. (uh, ya....right)...
I have rec'd about 10 within two days. I have not awswer but I will next time and give them a piece of my mind.

This is the information I was able to find on this number They called our business number today sounds like a scam.
Third time getting call. First two times did not get a chance to answer. Third time today @5:44pCST, man with deep voice blurted out something and hung-up. I tired calling back, but phone just wrong with no answer. Did a search on NPANXX and the number belongs to a Sprint Company called Central Telephone Company in Las Vegas, NV.
I have this number on my caller ID very often no message is ever left on my voice mail and if we answer it no one is there when we pick up the phone
They keep calling and asking for "Ernest Furrow" who has also been getting mail sent here! We tell them we don't know who that is and they tell us maybe we misunderstood and start to spell it out and then argue with us that they have the right number! We've payed for a credit report b/c of this, but it seems they just have the wrong number and address - we don't know how that's possible.
this companie is bs, foreigners keep calling and asking for my account number, and they know what my account is from chase, but it showed up as an ohio call, and then unknown for the past few days... douchebags i tell you!! just tryin to scam innocente people... and THEY WOULD NOT ASK YOU FOR YOUR ACCOUNT NUMBER WHEN THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO KNOW IT ALREADY!! RIGHT??
I've only had my new phone number for about a month and have been getting these calls 2-3 times daily for the past 3 weeks.
Called, no message left on my answering machine. 10/13/2006 6:49 est. Long Island NY
They call at least 10 times a day sometimes back to back, and never leave a message
I recommend everybody google this number, it seems to be a scam
Just call the number back and they give insructions to get removed from their calling list.
they call once a day man with foreign accent sometimes and sometimes nothing
i've been recieving calls from this place for almost a month now. the last one was at 7:03pm pst 10/12/2006
Filed complaint at:
2nd call occurred AFTER I obtained new unlisted number.
Received a call from (223) 987 2500 today. After attempting to return the call I discovered that the area code is "not assigned" and found this site. If it is a collection agency from India as many here believe it is how do they display the bogus call back number? And more importantly how can I do that? ;)
This number has called me several times but never leaves a message. Caller ID says COURTESY CALL I each time.
most recent call: 10-12-06
Caller ID shows unknown, 223-987-2500, or 223-987-2400. I stopped answering after the 1st time. They never leave messages, just static and weird music. Call on average 3 - 4 times a day, very disruptive.
I got a call from this number today and I told the guy to put me on the do not call list and never to call this number again. He was very rude and said he had long distance and if he wanted to call me he was going to call me and told me never to ignore him...scary. I tried to call the number back but it just kept ringing.
Enough with these people 8 to 10 times a day(futher muckers)!!!
There is all kinds of Westgate resorts booths and offices set up in Las Vegas, I got hung up with these people when I was on vacation there, I may have given them my phone number. Stupid, I know, but in Vegas I usually am not using my brain if you know what I mean. Anybody else run into these guys while there?
I did go online at a freebie site and filled out a Crhistian debt
repair form in order to get a free item. After that I am getting calls from all over the US.
FUCK THOSE BASTARDS!! FUCK THEM ALL!!!
Chase card been calling for daughter, over and over, after I interogated him for a long time asking questions, he volunteered to remove our number most happily. Now, calls again started after another chase call, not sure if these are related, we all need to call chase and complain and call Better business bureau. Make them take action.
Received two calls this morning from 888-685-0042 asking for "Jessica". Told first person they had the wrong number and it was my cell phone - she tried to argue with me! Second time the person said they would "try" to remove my number from their call list. NO identification either time.
scam company, called to "verify" our company information?...utah located, but the rude telemarketers are outsourced (India, Pakistan etc) stay away
This 702.388.9487 number calls all the time. They are SPAM! Do not deal with them.
They will NOT quit calling here!! They call every day, thinking we don't know it's the same person! Burn victims, Washington Deputies, etc! How can I get them to stop??? AHHHH!!!!
They have phoned several days in a row now and at least twice daily. When we answer they just hang up. Sometimes I hear voices in the background but nothing distinguishable.
called twice in 2 hours, didn't leave a message
called in NY at 1pm. ask what time eastiest for you to be reac, and hung up
I called the number back and theyre trying to sell you a vacation. There is an option to remove your number from the list which i did. How they got my cell phone i have no idea!
calling NH now - three times a day -
I am calling Chase to report this number to them and advise them we are upset with the phone calls.
get this phone call today at 11:33am
They called and asked for Ramona.
I have received 8 calls from this number today alone, and a total of 18 calls in the last 6 days.
Called, referred to me by my first name, said they were with the Sheriff's Dept. wanting money to buy bullet proof vests, and hung up on me. ???
Dumb de Dumb de Dumb, If they tkink I dont know their scam!
Called on my work line this morning; also got the static-y message (no discernable message). When I called back, ring with no answer.
I got this call on 09Oct06 @ 10:40. I didnt answer cause I didn't recognize the number. I have gotten calls from this number several times. The number they are calling is my work phone.
This number shows up all the time on my caller ID and no message is ever left. Sometimes they call 2 or 3 times a day. Get a clue - either leave a message or stop calling!
My phonebook shows that 223 area code is AC for the tiny country of Belize, situated between Mexico and Guatamala on the Caribbean Sea. Go figure. Called me today and did not leave a message on voicemail. No caller ID...I dialed *69. Called me on Sunday, 10-8-06 at 12:34 PM in NC. Odd, cause yesterday I got a call from a collector in Reno, NV and we are not late on any debts and told them to get lost .Old debts have aged off past 7 years and no longer on credit reports, and sounded like crooks trying to collect anyway after buying account from a past crooked collector who knows the debt no longer exists. Credit Bureaus verified the account no longer exist. But wondering if the two calls are related ???
they called several times an no talk,then hang up, or hang up before I get there my poor cat has to hear it ring all day.
wow !! I though I was the only one...I have services w/ Chase. none of my other co workers have this VERY annoying situation. BUT no way I am picking up !! leave a DAMN message.

if I wanted to book a vacation I would call someone but these people call everyday and never leave a message and it is easy to follow there removal instruction
I'll get about 5-6 calls a day, starting around 6:30 in the morning and going on through until about 8:30 at night (on my cell phone, no less). I just called back b/c of the suggestions on this site, and I guess we will see if they stop. It's been a few weeks now...
this number called 30 times today no message when i pick up no one is there
called me in greenwich ct at 6.26pm-no message left
Received a phone call today from these guys. He had an accent. He was looking for me, but I acted like I wasn't phone and asked to take a message. He said this was about "personal business" and asked if I had a spouse and if he could talk to her. It just didn't feel right. Luckily, this is a VoIP line so I can block this number if it becomes a nuisance. The ID read "NAME UNAVAILABLE".
They've been calling about 5-8 times a day... Really annoying!! I haven't answered but I'm concerned why they keep calling. Its been going on for about 3 days. Any ideas who or why they're calling? Can we get them to stop??
I have had them call me twice a day for the past week, same here no message no responce. Tonight they called at 8:30PM Pacific.
Like many others on this list, these fools call almost every day around 5pm and just hang up. I reported them to the Do Not Call list yesterday. Once, a guy from the same number asked for Charles, which is my husband's name, but he doesn't go by that, so I immediately figured it was a sales call, then he said his name was Joe. I know my husband doesn't know any Joes, so I told him he had the wrong Charles. He hung up. The caller ID just says Las Vegas, NV and 702-388-9487. My postal code is already on the map. I wish we could find a way to stop these idiots! My caller block won't work on them because they're from out of state. Ugh! I don't really know why it's so frustrating -- after all, it's just a phone call -- but for some reason it really chaps my hide!!
Definately a fraud operation, they try to get you to give out your credit card #. They are pretending to be chase card services, however, chase card services would not ask me my card # because they ALREADY KNOW it. I called chase card services- they confirmed this is a phishing type of scam.
Call received at 8:39am on my cell phone while at work. Didn't answer. No voicemail left. Tried calling back from my work phone so it couldn't be traced back to me and got the error message "Remember, you now have to dial 1 plus the area code, or 0 and the area code before dialing any long distance or operator assisted calls." Was dialing one plus area code. Tried several times, same responce every time. Calling from my cell phone tells me the number is invalid and to check the number and try again. I have a card with Chase bank, so I suppose that makes sense. But don't have any outstanding balance with them or reason for any collection people to be calling. Obnoxious!
I am cancelling my Discover card, I block these calls and yet they still get through!!!
Caller ID says Ohio call. No one on the line; no sound at all.
Called 10:38 am on 4 Oct. 2006. We have had several calls from this number. Our Caller ID showed nothing and since I never answer an unknown caller, I thought I would google the number and found you.
So far received 2 calls from this number within 8 hours, did not pick up. I blocked my ID and called the number back. It is not a valid US phone number.
I tried 1-800-654-9230 (compare to 1-800-432-3117, the number Chase gives for Customer Service) With some experimentation I discovered it requires a 13 digit account number. On the first attempt, I was put on hold "for an available representative" before being cut off. Typical hold music, but slightly glitchy voice playback. Could have been recorded from elsewhere. "If you feel your call has been cut off in error, please call again" announced a female recorded voice, before I heard the dial tone.
On second attempt, I pushed buttons at random until I was rerouted to a customer service representative whose Indian accent was not especially thick and who seemed to be well trained other than answering the phone simply with "Hello? Hello?" until I responded. Once I informed that I do not own a Chase credit card, he did not push me for any more personal information. With office noises in the background, everything seemed relatively legit. It's possible I was rerouted to a legitimate number after having entered "my account number" incorrectly so many times. I suspect this was a "man-in-the-middle" scam to collect account numbers before forwarding calls to Chase Cardmember Services.
Chase cardholders who receives calls from this number: instead use the phone number that comes with your billing statement.
get these idiots calling all day long!!!! for about a month or longer. never talk or leave a message ....pr*cks
I kept recieving calls from someone with an India accent from 223 987-2400. After about the tenth time that SOB called I nailed him with an air horn. He called back one more time and I hit him again with the air horn. Haven't heard from him for several weeks now Ha Ha. I was looking forward to his calls...
called last night and today. called back did the remove opition, but didn't work... called back and talked to a person (press 2 as soon as the recording starts) and ask to be removed. Takes 72 hours to remove according to the lady I talked to
I just got an E-mail from Sallie-Mae saying that this is not a collection agency that Sallie Mae uses. They told me to contact the school and see what they say.
Got a call from thie number 3 times this morning, no voicemail left. Evil solicitors!
That damn number has been calling me for over a week leaving no message. I try to call it back from the land line but no response.
Oh, and there's a privacy thing they have to abide by that prevents GRC from discussing the account with anyone else other than the names on the account. The borrower is the only person that can give them authorization to discuss the account with anyone else they they say it's okay for them to talk to. In other words, information will not be released to mom or dad unless the loan is in their name. I'm not sure if this applies to co-signers or not but I imagine it's just the name on the lender account only.
Ok, I'm back with more info. The short response is call your lender (in my case SallieMae) and find out when they expect you to start making payments on your loans. If this is date is sooner than expected or has changed then contact your school to find out why they never submitted your enrollment verification and have them do that. Anyway, I discovered that General Revenue Corporation was in fact hired or contracted by SallieMae (and maybe other lenders but I'm not sure) to contact the borrower and inform them that their payments to the lender will start in a few months from when they first called. Apparently SallieMae have not received an enrollment verification from my school thus my payments were no longer being deferred like they should have been. I have contacted SallieMae directly and instead of my payments being deferred til Dec 2007 I was scheduled to start paying this ungodly amount in Dec of this year (a whole year earlier). My school has since then faxed over the appropriate documentation and things are back on schedule.
I have a number that starts 315-223-9XXX, I get a dozon irrate people calling me asking why i called them a day. Its not me calling you, its some jackass with an autodailer, dont be offended if i tell you off becuase you are the 15th person to call me today....
#1, dont star 67 the number if your in the 315 areacode, it will just dial it localy, #2 pay your bill on time and they wont call you, #3 if they really want to talk to you, they will call you back.
they call me about 4 times a day so i pick up the phone and they hang up on me all the time.
I just requested to have my number removed and it said it will be processed in 48 hours if this continues I am going to have to take further action they are using my daytime minutes for this crap. Call is coming from Westgate Resort.
The have called me twice today (10/2/2006)
in a 4 hour time span.
No message and I am not the one to answer calls coming from 888, 800, or 866 numbers anyway!
Called my cell phone several times without leaving a message. I finally called the number back and you can opt off of their calling list... I tried, lets see if it really works.
I GET AT LEAST 5 TO 10 CALLS A DAY
I called Chase after receiving a call from (223) 987-2500 and they confirmed that they do have a branch in India and it is probably a marketing call from their branch. They call to offer you special services. I asked the Customer Service Rep to STOP calling me. I advise calling your Chase Customer Service Rep and doing the same. Hopefully, I won't hear from these two numbers again. If I do, I will contact this bulletin board again. Thanks for being here and helping me with my questions.
have been calling me for days, when the guy was like "hello.. mascha? Mascha?
Just some weird stuff.
Keeps calling and when i try calling back it says to check the number b/c its incorrect....N they never leave a message with as much as they call, if it was important, they would leave one!
They'r called for 2 weeks. If it's chase I don' tknow why becaus emy bills aren't late.
First time I got this one. Let it go to voice mail, no message left. 1:08 pm CST. Caller ID says Ohio Call.
Called me 8 times this month. Never left a message. Picked up once and they hung up. All caller ID says is out of area.
After reading what JB said, I have e-mailed Sallie Mae with the info I have. If Sallie Mae indeed says they don't know these people, I will then contact my State Attorney General's office with all this info. My cousin is a judge and I don't take kindly to people messing with kids.
They called for my daughter and I asked what it was in reference to. They said it was about her account, but she has no loans in her name. We are the borrowers and yet they said they couldn't talk to me unless they had her permission to do so. If Sallie Mae uses them, then why do they say the are calling on behalf of the schools. Why not say they are calling in behalf of Sallie Mae? At least then they would know who's name is actually on the loans.
I have an existing relationship with Discover Card, thus they are allowed to bug me. The salesman wanted to provide me with $12/month identity theft protection which checks credit report daily for signs of identity theft because people affected pay upwards of $700 to fix things once identity theft occurs.
I said no and goodbye. Telemarketer's parting words were "call 1800 discover for more information, keep using your Discover card for cash back bonuses".
I called this number back after recieving calls from them five days in a row without a voicemail. I recieved an automated voice message stating the company's name as Westgate Resort with a vacation offer. But after stating the company and etc they offered instructions for getting off of their caller's list.
Stupid punks called me at 7:30 AM on my day off!!!!
I posted a message on this this forum on 9/13/06 providing the information I had at that time. The caller ID used to show "IN DOR AM" but now shows up as RCC. The phone numbers are exactly the same so I'm pretty sure it's the same people calling. Anyway, one time they left a message stating that they were GRC, which stand for General Revenue Corporation (generalrevenue.com). This company provides collection services for education among other things. If you go to their website they have the SallieMae logo at the bottom of the page so I'm assuming they claim SallieMae is one of their clients. If this is true then apparently they have received information from SallieMae (or some other lender) and is making an attempt to collect payment. I don't know this for sure because I've yet been to speak to any of the reps from this company but that is my assumption. There's a couple of things that doesn't make sense about this. If this company is infact a collection agency then they must not have up to date or accurate information on me. First of all, why would Sallie Mae hire a collection agency when they themselves haven't even sent me my first billing statement requesting payment. I mean, usually collection agencies aren't hired until the lender reports that they've made attempts for payment numerous times with no luck. Secondly, I checked my account online at SallieMae and I don't have a payment due till early 2008 (because I'm still a student and that would be 6 months after I graduate)! Anyway, I'm awaiting a response from SallieMae to see what they say about this.
averaging five call per day
fortunately, my VOIP service lets me block them
224 987 2400, i got 2 missed calls, called the number back and it said number cannot be completed as dialed, really upset
I called them back, pressed 1, entered my number and they stated my number would be removed in 48 hours... I hope!
Whoever can find the home phone # of the CEO of this company please post it so we can call HIM and bug HIM instead!!!!
Called 5 times today. No message. I don't answer #'s I don't know. 15-20 minutes after this # calls I faithfully get another call from "unavailable." REALLY annoying.
They have called 2X on my cell in the last hour. I am on the do not call list!
called last night. no message, no caller id warning -- nothing. very very agrivating. when i looked up the number on www.whitepages.com for a reversal, it told me the number didn't exsist.
They keep calling me on my cell phone but never leave a message. Unless I know who is calling, I won't answer. I have received at least 20 calls from them over a couple weeks.
