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 from Card services...Racheal has been replaced by Ann.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!
