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
Another advertisement! Bad-bad-bad!
Another ad masquerading as comment. We get enough bogus ads via the phone. Now we have these numbskulls trying to sneak ads into the comments here. Bad.
Oh-oh. Here is another ad posing as a comment! Bad-bad-bad!
Is it my imagination, or has there been an absolute deluge of these kinds of calls as of late? More about that Canadian bogus call "mill"; they use American numbers to spoof where they are actually calling from!
Cherryl is not alone in finding that this "longchampcher" is bogus. It is bogus and HOW! To put it simply, the phone number connects to ICOR Canada, a combination telemarketing and debt collection "racket".
Dear Who Called Us, is there some checker on this site to block blatant advertisement comments like this one for Viagra? (There is apparently no related report.) I have noted here and at other similar sites that ads are showing up as comments (ads for all manner of "enhancements"), marketing for dating services, and just plain "dirty talk". This person Balobo! is a phony.
To Lynx: It is no secret why no one can stop these "monsters". It is called money; somewhere, someone is making money from these scams. -- In another posting under another number, it was stated that these companies move around a lot and change the numbers they use frequently so that it is next to impossible for any law enforcement agency to track them down. -- Then there is the matter of "spoofed" numbers; there are sites like spoofcrard.com (this is from another comment here at WCU) that will rig up, for a price, one phone number to appear as someone' else's number!
Judging from the array of numbers that has already appeared this morning in the Top Ten list under Who Called Us, these horrible people don't believe in taking a day off at the end of the week -- in the U. S. this is historically Sunday. That shows you how evil these companies are; they take a nasty delight in making other people angry.
NOTE: People flocked to cell phones because they were shielded by the confidentiality of their numbers. Then some genius in D. C. decided that cell phone numbers should be published, too, just like land line numbers. Maybe someone will invent a communications device that will be secure from these "monsters" whose trails are very well marked here at Who Called Us. (A perfectly secure means of communications is still a written letter sent by mail.)
The Do Not Call list is totally worthless as far as tens of thousands of severely angry people are concerned -- perhaps hundreds of thousands. We have seen this during the days preceding the Louisiana primary of yesterday. Citizens were deluged with bogus calls from area codes starting with "8" and "2", and callers IDd as Wireless, Unknown, and Unrecognized. -- The phone was designed to be a private means of communications, not a shooting gallery for hacks, phonies, politicians, and "spoofers". This kind of harassment has to be stopped, but how?
