Who Called Us

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

Sick of the telemarketing calls.

Anti-telemarketing tools:
* VoIP - block or auto-forward telejunkers - all toll-free numbers go to voicemail. Some get redirected back to their own toll-free numbers.
* Skype - anonymously call toll-free numbers (no need for Skype credit) for investigating caller ID.
* dig/host and whois *nix commands - find out about telejunkers who have a net presence.
* Asterisk - very powerful when configured correctly, can send tele-junkers into a never-ending IVR or pre-emptively block them from whocalled.us lookups. More information on Xentel DM, one of North America's biggest and dirtiest telejunkers-for-hire: www.thestar.com

Basically another one of your common-or-garden telejunker for hire (just like Xentel).

Like most Windows & Doors companies, Ontario Choice is yet another telespammer. Been getting call attempts from them for months - their number is on permanent block. Obviously, double-glazing salesmen have a bad reputation for a clear reason.

2010-03-034168403098

Compare the WHOIS info for oldtimershockey.com and shrine-circus.com - identical information. No co-incidence that Xentel DM have been calling on behalf of the Shriners the same days they've been telespamming for the Old-timers' Hockey Challenge:

Ass-clowns-for-hire, Xentel DM, telespamming for their "Old-timers' Hockey Challenge". They've been doing this shit for about 11 years now.

Heh... Looks like a disgruntled (ex-)employee @ Xentel Winnipeg also confirms what douche-bags they are:

biggest scumbags in winnipeg. push you to take little old ladies' money and try to make you feel good about it when you get the "sale." sends about .5% of the donation to the charity while the fat cats at corporate take the rest of the dough for themselves. no breaks during the day, unless you "earn" them.

what a fucking shithole.'

Another call from these turds @ Xentel, although this time they actually said they were calling from "Chase Xentel" instead of whatever quasi-charity du jour they normally claim to represent. Asked for a member of my family, claiming it to be a "personal call" - yeah right! Called this number back to confirm if it was indeed Xentel (that I didn't mis-hear the name) and got a one-second blast of elevator music followed by ~10 seconds of silence, followed by a fast-busy tone. That one-second music is a classic sign of Xentel and it ties in with the fact that Xentel have a boiler-room operation in Winnipeg MB:

Another call from these turds @ Xentel, although this time they actually said they were calling from "Chase Xentel" instead of whatever quasi-charity du jour they normally claim to represent. Asked for a member of my family, claiming it to be a "personal call" - yeah right!

2008-10-098154182020

These 'tards don't give up. Every day it's a different number, but the CLID name is the same as the CLID number (instead of "Unknown" or "Out of Area". Probably the same scammers calling from <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/7602048408">www.whocalled.us</a> although this one isn't through Digitcom.

2008-10-084163649986

2 fax spammer calls in 1 day (http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/4163611979) ! Just as well I registered all my numbers on the Canadian National DNC list today [/sarcasm]. Let's see how (in-)effective that'll be.

2008-10-086474283346

Why would eBay be calling me? Especially since no-one in our household has an eBay account? Called this number back, curious to see the answer and got a terse "The person you are calling is on the phone, goodbye". Smells phishy to me.

2008-10-084163611979

After almost 11 months, they're back calling again. Added them to my VoIP blocklist. Probably a fax spammer war-dialling for viable fax numbers - it rang off after 4 rings.

2008-10-047602048408

My guess is that Digitcom Services (http://www.digitcom.net/contact.asp) is another Lucre-type company: a company probably run by telespammers, for telespammers. Why else would a *company* (as opposed to an individual) obscure their WHOIS information? Skyping the toll-free number on their contact page (1-800 464-5446) gets me an automated message mentioning "Wildgate for Digitcom customer support". This corresponds to the WHOIS for position.net (the DNS server domain): Administrative Contact: Admin, DNS; webops@wildgate.com; Wildgate Wireless, Inc.; 5280 E. Beverly Blvd.; Suite C, PMB 274; Los Angeles, California 90022; Tel: 310-861-6100

See also <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/7602048408">www.whocalled.us</a> - exact same M.O.: Californian area code, CLID name = CLID number, credit card scam ("this is your [second and] final notice to reduce your credit card interest".

2008-09-266262738210

See also <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/7602048408">www.whocalled.us</a> for an example of CLID name = CLID number, calling from California, and scamming credit cards.

2008-09-267602048408

Another website has this number down as a credit card scammer ("This is your
last call with important information about your credit card"). Fits in with the same M.O. as <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/6262738210">www.whocalled.us</a> where the CLID name is the same as the CLID number, so probably the same clowns.

2008-09-269058207721

Another spammy politician, soliciting votes through the phone.

2008-09-258882261055

Got a voicemail from a woman called Lesley Cody (or however it's spelt) calling about "our timeshare". No company name, no reference numbers, just a request to callback to 1-888-226-1055 x241. Skyped this number back and went straight through to an operator who announced the call as "Vacation Register". Judging by this page: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/vacation-register-inc-c2609.html">www.complaintsboard.com</a> I'm guessing they should be avoided at all costs.

2008-09-258005882300

Used their services about a year ago - now they're telespamming us, leaving pre-recorded generic messages saying they called but no reason as to why. No more business for Empire Today from us.

2008-09-245179312033

Probably the same clowns who called earlier the same day from <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/6262738210:">www.whocalled.us</a>

Both identified as being credit card vultures. Google for "MCS Wealth" telespammers (the "real" MCS Wealth claims that this is someone impersonating them in a "vishing" scam).

2008-09-246262738210

Persistent little buggers - didn't ring off after 4 rings like most telejunkers do.

2008-09-134166619915

Caller ID number was actually 1-416-661-9915 even though 416 is local to me.

2008-08-3115100500000000

Full number from CLID is 151005000000000 (9 zeroes at the end). Probably related to the junk calls we occasionally get from <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/11259514000000">www.whocalled.us</a> (112595140000002) and 112595146936415.

All tied to various automotive, card and vacation scams. Area code 506 is NB, Canada, but given that the last digit of the 3-digit exchange code changes and almost all are 11 digits, these calls probably do not originate from Canada. Likely an offshore scamster out of Costa Rica (+506).

No surprise that the tuckfards who are faking their caller ID with this number are telespamming/telescamming drugs. Of course, since it's true that there's a sucker born every minute, they will continue to call and harrass the rest of us.

2008-08-07416

Probably the same perps who call from "647" (just the 3-digit CID).

2008-07-234169871501

I get lots of calls from the CID name of "W & D" from various 416 numbers. Most of these calls come in on Saturday morning or late evening. Usually, when I call this number back to find out who the fsck these people are, the phone rings and rings with no pick-up. On 2008-07-17 @ 21:06, these clowns called. No reply on the callback. Tried this number again the next morning and the phone line picked up without even ringing, then I heard a fast dial out of someone's number. Sounds like these idiots are using multiple outgoing lines with a predictive or auto-dialer (hence the various numbers they call from). So, I said "hello?" and got connected to a telespammer asking for someone by name. He said he was calling from "Canadian Choice Windows & Doors".

Called this number to check out the modus operandi. The auto-attendant on 816-913-0904 refers callers to 1-800-396-9470. I Skype'd the toll-free number: it answers with the same male voice as per the 816 number, then the usual dorky Xentel guy follows on. This is definitely another tentacle of Xentel DM.

See <a rel="nofollow" href="http://ago.mo.gov/newsreleases/2004/052804.htm">ago.mo.gov</a> and <a rel="nofollow" href="http://ago.mo.gov/newsreleases/2008/020408.htm">ago.mo.gov</a> to see how Xentel DM, aka "Xentel Inc", one of North America's worst telejunkers-for-hire, has been spanked by MO State Atty - not once, but *twice*.

2008-06-264166509451

Junk voicemail left, telespamming "Twelve Angry Men" - I guess I'll be boycotting Mirvish Productions from now on.

2008-05-308663384725

These tele-fsckers left a junk voicemail, offering "free cruise tickets" if we take out a subscription to the Globe & Mail. Yeah right.

2008-05-300000000000

One thing is for certain: 000-000-0000 is not one unique telespammer. It's probably the default config for the same predictive dialer hardware/software combo used by all the telejunkers listed here.

Today, I get 4 calls in-a-row with the same M.O. as StarTec Comms, who fake their caller ID number as "90754" (http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/90754) and most probably also fake CID with <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/90560:">www.whocalled.us</a> 2008-05-29 18:09:27, 2008-05-29 18:09:36, 2008-05-29 18:09:43 and 2008-05-29 18:09:51 ET.

Sears left a voicemail regarding a scheduled delivery. Despite the fact that Sears are normally spamtards, this call was actually legitimate.

Telling a scamster that you're busy in the hopes that they won't call back, doesn't work. The fact that they want credit card information for a "free" trip should be a red flag. Google is your friend: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.google.com/search?q=%22Imperial+Majesty%22+free+trip">www.google.com</a> - rip-off reports a-plenty: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/270/RipOff0270153.htm">www.ripoffreport.com</a>

2008-05-026169802345

Probably the same scam-tards from <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/6169802372">www.whocalled.us</a> and <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/4107748012">www.whocalled.us</a> - the sooner Lucre goes out of business, the better.

2008-05-026153834260

Called this number: it rang for about 10 times, then went to an Audix voicemail system, but their mailbox is full - a convenient way to avoid getting DNC request messages.

2008-05-028006987716

Skyped this number and got an announcer: "Welcome to the new AT&T... residential sales". Seems like "the new AT&T" is just like the old one: still a bunch of telespamming scumbags.

2008-05-028003958813

3 times already today (calls are routed straight to VM, but they never leave a message): 2008-05-01 ~15:45h, ~17:20h and ~19:15h ET. Calls at least once every day for the past 2 weeks.

2008-05-024166505901

Rang off after 3-4 rings. Called the number back and got a couple of rings, followed by a short fax tone burst, then silence. Tried it again and got a woman's voice "the person you are trying to reach is unavailable - please try your call again later".

Funny how the spammers infest this page out of all the available others. Makes one wonder if someone is deliberately making a lot of "noise" from behind anonymous proxies to try to drown out the fact that Tim either works for, or has close ties to, Xentel DM/Xentel Inc:

Periodic personalised reminder from The Canadian Blood Services (the mnemonic is 1-888-2-DONATE) asking for blood. We're registered with them, so the call is entirely legitimate.

2008-04-299056950764

Google search on this number reveals that this is a fax number for Globex Windows (http://www.hotfrog.ca/Companies/Globex-Windows). Given the propensity of Windows& Doors companies to telespam, what's the bet this is an attempt to fax-spam the GTA? Called this number back: it rang 6 or so times and then someone or something picked up the line and I heard fast, consistent speed tone-dialling - probably the fax machine trying to connect out again.

2008-04-273053579402

Don't know for sure if it is Multiphone calling, but the CID number returns a Google search result for <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.multiphone.net/MP_contactenos_ing.shtml">www.multiphone.net</a> - some Venezuelan long distance telco in Miami, Spam'ida. Skyped their toll-free (1-866-870-0014) and got an announcer all in Spanish. Since LD telcos have a proclivity for telespamming their own services, I'm betting this is yet another junk call.

2008-04-258667078411

They're still trying to get through, the persistent little buggers - never leaves a voicemail though (and that's all they'll get to speak to, unless I get bored and setup an auto-fwd to another telespammer's number). Today, 2 calls in one day, morning and night: 2008-04-24 @ 11:15h and 20:25h ET.

2008-04-258662941752

Yep, they're still calling (and still telespamming themselves in the process). Every 2-3 days, 1-2 times per day, all hours of the day (tonight's call came in at 2008-04-24 ~2015h ET).

Perhaps a blocklist starting with all numbers in the 416-661-xxxx range, such as:

Telespammer's name is "Alma Windows". I think it's time to start a blacklist of all windows/doors companies in the GTA that invade our privacy.

2008-04-244166614226

2008-04-244107748005

I have all 410-774-xxxx numbers blocked in my VoIP (actually, calls from this block of numbers get auto-fwd'ed to another telespammer) so this one got trapped today - yay!

2008-04-245622898157

Didn't ring off after 4 rings, which is unusual for a telejunker, but I didn't answer the phone anyway - no voicemail left. Called the number back and got a scratchy answer-phone message (sounded like one of those old tape-driven ones) inviting me to punch in my number to be removed from their calling list. No company name. I never punch in my number, because it just confirms your number is live (not that this scratchy old machine would recognise it anyway). If I do get an apparent real touch-tone recogniser, I usually punch in the number I'm calling.

2008-04-2490754

Just the one time on this occasion: 2008-04-23 16:00h ET.

2008-04-244166302172

We get occasional sample newspaper drops in our area for The Toronto Star, so I've been expecting them to start calling and they did. 1-2 times a day, at various times, every day this week so far. I am auto-fwd'ing this number to 1-800-428-3003 as of today (with 1 successful redirect) so we'll see how long they want to play this game.

2008-04-189992997646

What's funny is that when I Skyped 1-888-GO-LUCRE, I get an announcer telling me to call 1-800-373-TALK (1-800-373-8255) which is an automated ad for a phone-sex line. Now we know what kind of business Lucre is in!

2008-04-176169802372

Of course, 616-980-2xxx is owned by Lucre, Inc (same as 269-768-2xxx). I suspect that Lucre is a shell company run by telespammers for telespammers.

2008-04-174107748012

Woman's voice on the <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/2697682016">www.whocalled.us</a> number has changed, but now we're getting calls from the same telespammer on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://whocalled.us/lookup/6169802372">whocalled.us</a> (exact same female voice on the "automated number removal system"). Obviously so ashamed of the tele-junk they purvey, they don't even say the name of the company or mention a live contact number.

2008-04-176169802372

Another telejunker that rings off after 4 rings. Called this number back and got an announcer advised that I had reached an automatic number removal system - identical woman's voice to <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/4107748012">www.whocalled.us</a> - probably the same vacation scammer spammer.

2008-04-168008894625

Still calling - once or twice a day, every day. Time to start redirecting this number back to themselves - so many to choose from, but unfortunately none of them gets me straight through to a live operator.

2008-04-168667078411

Still calling - once every other day now.

2008-04-166046321200

Still calling periodically - whenever they call, they get auto-forwarded to an out-of-service number.

2008-04-164165811076

Since I started auto-fwd'ing this number to Direct Energy's 1-866-907-7260 number (which goes straight through to a live operator) they have started calling twice a day, almost every day.

2008-04-164168488462

Called this number back to see who it was (they rang off after 4 rings, definite telespam sign). Phone rings half a ring, followed by continuous elevator music. Very strange.

"Environics Research Group" tele-spamming surveys at 2140h ET (they also called at 1940h). Obviously, these people have no shame about calling so late, regardless of the fact they are not "selling" anything. Tele-pest refused my request to be put on their DNC list, telling me to call 416-488-5900 x271 and speak with a shift supervisor. That is illegal, per CRTC <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/INFO_SHT/T22.htm">www.crtc.gc.ca</a> : "DO NOT CALL lists are to be maintained by the calling party and remain active for three years. If, during the call, the called party asks to be put on a do not call list, the do not call request must be processed without requiring the called party to do anything further. If the call is made by an agent calling on behalf of a client, the agent must ask the called party if it wishes to have its name on the agent

2008-04-156138450730

Called this number back - it is the membership and fund-raising dept of the Liberal Party of Canada. No option to leave a message or request removal.

2008-04-154166619915

Called 2025h ET 2008-04-14. Called this number back, but didn't get the full name of the company. Is there a windows & doors company within the GTA that *doesn't* telespam??

More evidence that Xentel does not honour DNC requests, unless threatened with a lawsuit: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.dmnews.com/Mey-to-Xentel-Dont-call/article/95314/">www.dmnews.com</a>
[quote]When Xentel called me, I made it perfectly clear I wanted my phone number added to both Xentel's as well as the client's suppression list. I didn't learn until later that it's Xentel's policy to disregard the first part of that request, even when it's clear the consumer doesn't want Xentel to call back for any client.

It was only after I wrote and threatened a lawsuit did Xentel agree to add my phone number to a company-wide suppression list.[/quote]

2008-04-1290560

The modus operandi belongs to StarTec Communications AKA Teligent, an ethically-challenged long-distance telco (in one of the service sectors with a propensity to tele-spam and to tele-junk-by-proxy). After months of calling with junk CID numbers ("90560", "90754" and "1800949993") they finally called without a faked/blocked caller ID today - see <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/90754">www.whocalled.us</a> for more information.

2008-04-1290754

GeoHoliday AKA "Geo Holiday Services" (without the medial caps). Left a 71-second blank voicemail. Called this number back and got an announcer telling me the name of the company (also mentions "Fairfield Affiliates") with options to hear directions to their preview centres in the GTA. Also quotes "Haliburton Heights" with a toll-free number of 1-800-509-3873. Don't know if they are trying to telespam or if they dialled the wrong number, but leaving a blank voicemail of over a minute, tells me that they are up to no good. Also Googled their name and noticed a few scam alerts for this company (specifically mentions "Fairfield" here too): <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.aboutmytalk.com/t184490/s&travel.html">www.aboutmytalk.com</a>

Called this number back. Got an announcer that said "Thank you for calling the general information line" but it did not state the company name. Classic sign of a telescammer-for-hire (or "professional fund-raiser" as these scum like to call themselves).

Not surprising they are telescammers - calling from the world spam capital, Boca Raton, in the Spamshine State. Probably relates to the car warranty scams operated by Ralph Mancuso (http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/4805431282) also out of Florida.

Definitely Xentel DM. Called this number and got the usual Xentel spiel of "calling you is the most cost-effective way to reach our goal". The toll-free inbound number for these mouth-breathers is 1-800-317-0667 (with the usual Xentel nerdy guy's voice on this number's announcer).

This is another one of Xentel's (not "Zentel") campaigns for yet another quasi-charitable organisation. The giveaway that this is Xentel DM, is the one-second blast of elevator music at the beginning and/or end of the announcer when Skyping this number. The voice isn't the usual dorky guy, but it uses the same combination of phrases that Xentel also uses. The announcer refers callers to 1-800-670-4919. Skyping that number gets you another announcer, this time with the familiar nerdy voice (compare to <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/8002544310).">www.whocalled.us</a> Xentel are not debt collectors, although if are scammed into pledging a donation, they will probably hound you like a debt collector!

Wow... these fsckers, Xentel DM calling on behalf of the "Ontario Blind Sports Association", haven't called from this number in a long time. Of course, being toll-free, it went straight to voicemail without ringing my phone. Just as well, given that these fumbducks called at 17:00 *and* 21:05h ET 2008-04-03.

Canadian Bonded Credits and Allied Interstate are all part of IMRC (IntelliRisk Management Corporation). Per their own website (http://www.irmc.com/ushome/index.cfm): "The IRMC family of companies are united in a corporate vision and mission, while maintaining unique company names, including: Allied Interstate and First Contact in the United States; Canadian Bonded Credits Limited (CBCL) in Canada; Legal & Trade Collections, Legal & Trade Financial Services, Reachflow and Revenues Management Services in the United Kingdom; IntelliRisk Philippines, Inc. in the Philippines; and IntelliRisk Management India Pvt.

If you Skype this number, you'll get straight through to an operator, who announces the call as "RX Global Online". If these people are calling and hanging up, I suggest returning the favour. They will eventually get the message.

The call was for telemarketing purposes". Actually sounded like "Interwest". Skyped the toll-free number and got a female bi-lingual message that if I had any questions, to email tours@clubintrawest.com or enter my 10 digit phone number. I punched in *their* number, pressed "1" to confirm and "0" to get an operator. A "Mohammed" confirmed their business name as Club Intrawest:

Skyped this number - it is for UPS (the mnemonic is 1-800-PICK-UPS like you see on their brown trucks). Possible that scammers could fake their CID to make it look like UPS is calling.

2008-03-162697682242

Look at the garbage "name" field in CID. It's akin to email spammers putting in garbage subject lines in an attempt to beat spam filters (aka "hash buster"). In this case it's probably an attempt to transmit *something* in the CID name to prevent the call being blocked by privacy-guard type systems (that block calls where the number *or* name is "unknown").

Don't know who keeps posting/reporting this number as "unknown" - it is confirmed as being "CBCL/Canadian Bonded Credit".

Anyway, since Skyping this number gets straight through to an operative, I've started redirecting this number back to themselves (to stop the junk voicemails that they sometimes leave). Just today (2008-03-15) I've had 4 attempts from them: 1155h, 1440h, 1610h and 1700h ET. I think they'll get the message to stop calling soon.

What's very interesting is that the first 3 attempts were from "90754" and the 4th (last) attempt was from a blocked number (just 8 seconds after the third attempt - it has to be them). My VoIP blocks calls from unknown/blocked numbers. Sounds like a telejunker is desperately trying to get through. No matter, my VoIP will keep auto-forwarding these spamtards to an out-of-service number.

Skyped this number - the announcer stated that it is the donor services line for "Outreach Associates" (or possibly spelled as "Out Reach" or "Out-reach").

Caller hung up when they got through to my voicemail (most telepests ring off within 4 rings before my VM picks up) but no message left. Called this number back and got an immediate announcer telling me to punch in my 10-digit phone number if I wanted to be removed from their calling list - no company identification or anything. A sure sign of a telejunker. I do not "opt-out" of these systems by punching in my number, because like spam email, it only confirms to a telejunker that your number is live. Also, it tells them that you either listen to voicemail (if they leave one) or that you're available to be harassed around the time you punch in your number.

Interesting.... Skyped this number and got straight through to a live operator who said that it's the customer number for "YP.com". So, let's see who they really are:
$ host www.yp.com
www.yp.com has address 128.242.112.70
$ host 128.242.112.70
70.112.242.128.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer www.livedeal.com.
Which corresponds to the Google-esque "LiveDeal" logo on their page. The WHOIS for livedeal.com is for a company in Santa Clara, CA. What's interesting is that this company also has the domain livedeal.ca, which is run by the Toronto Star in Ontario, Canada (www.livedeal.ca looks almost identical to the livedeal.com one). Funny co-incidence that they should call back from the infamous 480-543-xxxx range (per "Sue" 2007-12-07). My bet is that this relates to scamsters "SLG Sales". Perhaps they're faking their CID to be YP's toll-free number and acting as affiliates/middle-men for Yellow Pages.

The registration page asks you specifically for your cell phone number and cell provider. I see it as a harvesting attempt so that they can send you SMS spam (using email-to-SMS gateways such as 10digitphonenumber@myvzw.com). The *only* contact information their webshites will give you is info@careernetworksite.net - no phone numbers, no physical addresses or contact names. Look at all those Fortune 500 companies (http://jobappnow.com/About.cfm) they so-say recruit for! Sounds very suspicious to me.

Their amateurish, god-awful webshite at <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.nationalbrands.com/">www.nationalbrands.com</a> makes it look like some shell company - probably a company run by telespammers for telespammers, given the different numbers SLG Sales call from within 480-543-xxxx. But anyway, perhaps anyone who's been abused by SLG Sales or any other telejunker using Sharenet's numbers, should complain to: Gary Joseph (602) 516-1207 garyj@nationalbrands.com

2008-03-144805431323

Per www.fonefinder.net (thanks for the tip, www.junkfax.org !) the telephone company who owns the numbers in both the 480-543-xxxx and 623-238-xxxx ranges is "National Brands Inc" doing business as "Sharenet Comms". Complaining directly to the telespammer is as effective as trying to complain directly to an email spammer - pointless. You need to chase the telco who is providing connectivity and facilitating this abuse.

2008-03-144805431323

Jim: it's unlikely that Walmart even have a hand in this. The scammers are baiting potential victims with gift cards and mention Walmart. The next call, they could be "giving away" Sears or some other big store gift card. It's just a ruse to get your credit card number.

2008-03-132697682228

This is related to the same bunch of turds calling from <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/4107748039">www.whocalled.us</a> / <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/4107748012">www.whocalled.us</a> / <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/2697682016">www.whocalled.us</a> (410-774-8662 is doing the rounds today - see <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/4107748662).">www.whocalled.us</a> Per "Kahuna", the vacation scammers are also calling from this number, so it's not limited to car warranty scams.

Also, the last 4 digits in both 410-774-xxxx and 269-768-xxxx will be different, but it's likely to be a pool of numbers assigned to one VoIP wholesaler (just like how 480-543-xxxx and 623-238-xxxx is the same spammer calling from 2 different area codes). I don't think that the idiots calling from 410-774 and 269-768 are directly related to "SLG Sales", but I do believe that both of these boiler-room operations are operating various scams-du-jour concurrently.

2008-03-134107748662

Oh and since I pressed "1", I'm sure their retarded predictive dialer is going to call me back, so I've set up a rule in my VoIP to auto-forward any 410-774-xxxx numbers to another telejunker's toll-free number (one that goes straight through to one of their operatives). Just looking at my call log, 410-774-8662 called twice today: 2008-03-13 1712h and 1834h ET.

Another vacation spammer/scammer - robo-message for a vacation package somewhere in the Spamshine State, Florida. Seems to me that the vast majority of spammers originate in Florida (and almost every vacation tele-spam is for resorts in Florida). Anyway, I don't normally answer unknown numbers, but I'm expecting an overseas call today, so I picked up. Got the robo-spam message and I pressed "1" to see who these scammers are. Line goes quiet and disconnects after about 10 seconds. Looks like these morons can't even staff the calls their predictive dialers make. What a fscking waste of time. Upon looking back in my posting history, I notice that they are the same turds who are calling from <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/4107748039">www.whocalled.us</a> / <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/4107748012">www.whocalled.us</a> / <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/2697682016">www.whocalled.us</a> (identical woman's voice when calling back all these numbers, but different woman's voice in the robo-spam message). I suspect that 410-774-xxxx is another one of those wholesale VoIP provider number pools (just like the various telespammers who call from the 480-543-xxxx range).

2008-02-248772371316

See notes on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/8004661258">www.whocalled.us</a> - this is a telejunker's inbound number that reports as being no longer in service.

Skyped this number. Announcer answers with "Credit problems? [...] Call 1-800-511-0527 for instant debt relief". Skyped 1-800-511-0527 and got a message "The number you have reached is no longer in service. No further information is available". I guess this telejunker can't afford to pay for the upkeep on their toll-free numbers - hopefully they will go completely out-of-business soon.

More desperados: 2008-02-20 17:11:59, 17:12:27 and 17:12:55 ET. Attempts to call right back after being auto-shunted to an OOS number (exactly 28secs in between each attempt).

My guess is that it's all different telejunkers using the same telespamming software/hardware that has the default configuration as 000-000-0000 as the outbound number for the PRI.

Called this number. Got a 1-sec blast of elevator music, followed by an announcer that told me to call 1-800-396-1757. That 1-second bit of music is a sign of Xentel DM. Skyped 1-800-396-1757 and got same announcer for "National Association of Police Athletic Leagues" (same guy's voice). Then the familiar dorky Xentel guy's voice comes on with the same old "In order for us to serve you to the best of our abilities, please listen to this message in its entirety before making your selection..." with IVR menu options (compare this to <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/8003073697).">www.whocalled.us</a> Xentel hires just about anyone who couldn't cut it in a real job, so you'll find most of their operatives to be rude, pushy and non-compliant to DNCL requests. This is why they will call you back ad nauseum.

2008-02-071800949993

This number calls infrequently: 2-3 times a day, then nothing for a month or more. Sometimes the caller ID number shows as (180) 094-9993 and sometimes as (800) 949-9935 (http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/8009499935) which when Skype'd, comes back as "Startec Global Communications". It's just another common-or-garden Long Distance tele-spammer, who ignores OOS messages: 2008-02-06 14:35:55 and 2008-02-06 14:36:22.

2008-02-075196606244

Called 2008-02-05 ~1630h ET. We didn't pick up. When calling the number back, it rings 2-3 times, answers with dead air for ~15 secs, then there's a fast-busy.

Yep, these inbreds called today and the phone only rang 2-3 times before they rang off. Most telejunkers disconnect 4-5 rings. Probably another "probe" to see if anyone's around so that they can call back another time of day.

Called this number back, to see if it's related to <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/2697682016">www.whocalled.us</a> and <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/4107748012">www.whocalled.us</a> - it isn't. Announcer advises that if I want to contact a live representative, to hang up and dial 616-555-1234 (which is Directory Assistance). So now we have telespammers telling victims to call Directory Assistance? How weird.

2008-01-232697682016

Called this number - got a message "You have reached our number removal system...". If a so-called business answers with that sort of message, you know it has to be a scam, as they obviously don't want (a) identify themselves or (b) hear back from all the people they harass.

We get numerous calls that open with an automated, pre-recorded message of "You've won a vacation", so I looked through my logs and found another number, <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/4107748012">www.whocalled.us</a> - when calling this number back, the woman's voice is identical in the "You have reached our number removal system..." message.

2008-01-235196457126

Called twice today. 2nd time they called, I picked up and as soon as I said "Hello" the line makes a ringing sound. Woman comes on the line, claiming to be from TD (as per their announcer when calling that number back). I asked her how I could be sure it's TD calling and she gives me a callback number of 1-877-301-9198. Skyped this number and got a voicemail service, telling me to leave a message.

2008-01-238662941752

Male voice left a pre-recorded VM message: "[20 seconds of silence] Hello, this is Canadian Bonded Credit Limited calling regarding a very important business matter. Please call us Monday to Friday 7AM to 12AM Eastern Standard Time and Saturdays 9AM to 9PM at 1-866-294-1752 - thank you". Unusual that a debt collector should identify themselves, much less leave a voicemail.

2008-01-2390754

6 months on, these wuckfits are still periodically trying to get through - they are on perma-ban in my VoIP block list (auto-fwd'ed to an OOS number). Does not call as frequent as <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/90560">www.whocalled.us</a> but I suspect it's the same perps, as they try 2-3 times in the space of a minute (just like the inbreds at 90560): 2008-01-22 11:01:34 and 2008-01-22 11:02:03 ET.

Skyped this number - got an announcer "Thank you for calling Sprint...", so if Sprint says it's not them, it's probably one of their telespamming affiliates.

2008-01-218668008692

Skyped 866-800-8692 - it came up as "Enterprise Rent-a-Car". The other number, 866-880-8692, just rings and rings.

Looks like "shelley" (http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/5592726415) is the sock for "Stop whining" (http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/5592726406) or vice-versa. Both posted through 207.200.116.204 (an AOL web proxy in California) on 2007-05-25.

I would suggest that for every call that you get, call 1-800-622-5725 to complain on their dime (and tell them you're using their toll-free, so it's in their best interest to add your number to their DNC list).

Actually, VSNL is one of India's biggest telecoms (ISP and LD) providers. According to Wikipedia, Tata Communications owns a controlling stake in VSNL (the Indian Govt has a minority stake). It's probably a boiler-room operation somewhere in India using VSNL's VoIP or LD service, hence the caller ID names VSNL and TATA COMM.

2008-01-205103733870

Documenting more evidence against Xentel, for Google archiving purposes...

More Xentel sock-puppetry @ <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/5592726406">www.whocalled.us</a> (note the IP address):
"2007-04-10 Juile 139.142.139.89
I received a call from the California Police activities league as I am an active giver. Cal Pal saved my Childs life" (ignoring the fact that 139.142.139.89 is owned by Xentel for a second, why is a Californian posting via a Canadian IP address?)

"2007-05-05 John 139.142.139.89
Actually guys, most Charities/Telemarketing splits result in the Telemarketing people keeping 85% and the charity getting 15% So if what your saying is true and 35% is going that means they did 3 times better then your average cause…" (someone can't multiply!)

Both of these sock-puppets also posted identical messages on another anti-telemarketing board for 1-559-272-6406. I suspect that "shelley" and "megan" at that board are either Tim's "socks", or other Xentel stooges (employees told to post to support "the cause").

2008-01-208006473068

Skyped this number - got a vague, contradictory message saying "we're sorry, the number you have dialed is not in service at this time, or cannot be reached from your calling area". Either the number is in service, or it isn't - being outside of the calling area is a separate issue.

Called this number back. Phone rings 3-4 times, then I get SIT tones with the message, "the number you have called is not in service... this is a recording". It's a recording alright, and it sounds fake. The sort of thing you'd expect from sneaky telepests that don't want to be contacted (after all, when they hang up on you, you can't even request to be added to their DNC list, even if they honoured those requests).

The same $1.95 S&H scam, which amounts to nothing more than a simple Advance Fee Fraud. No different to the 419 email scams, just a different premise to get your banking details.

2008-01-208669047796

Relates to <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/8008887890">www.whocalled.us</a> - exact same scam ("free digital camera and vacation" for $1.95 S&H).

The scammer on 1-800-888-7890 is "Apex Services" (http://www.apexservicesonline.com/) which has a link to "Advantage Communications" (http://www.advantagecommunicationsonline.com) with a telephone number of 1-866-904-7796. Do a WHOIS on both apexservicesonline.com and advantagecommunicationsonline.com, you'll see both of these domains were only created on October 2nd 2007, same registrar also as slimbodyfuel.com (another link off of Apex website).

Looks like <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/7756785678">www.whocalled.us</a> also relates to these jokers as well (including onlineadvantageinc.com and callusaonline.com). All fits in with so-say being in Las Vegas, but it's probably just another offshore boiler-room faking caller ID, or using an American long-distance/VoIP provider.

Had to laugh at the banner ad on that Apex website: "Unlimited Long Distance, Simple & Reliable Internet! Only $29.99 per month. Free Monthly Vacation & Access To Guaranteed Weight Loss". Like, WTF does internet access have to do with vacations and weight loss? It *reeks* of scamminess.

Hard to tell if this is one big boiler-room operation, or several small ones using a common carrier (like a VoIP provider).

2008-01-195103733871

May be related to: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/5103733870">www.whocalled.us</a> (CALPAL/Xentel) which is, in turn, related to <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/5103733845">www.whocalled.us</a>

My theory: both WSLive and Xentel are totally different entities, but they both use the same carrier (probably a VoIP provider) with outbound numbers in the 510-373-xxxx range.

2008-01-195103733845

Yes, Henrik, anyone can cut'n'paste text from CALPAL's website - regurgitating this information doesn't make it anymore credible - it does not get around the point that money raised does not equal money given to charity. Whilst I'm sure no-one would argue with the concept of what CALPAL tries to do, I don't think anyone would give $25 if they knew that only 17 bucks (going by Tim Petrillo's figures) went to helping the kids.

In reality, Xentel rarely gives more than 15% of funds raised to these charities, so the actual figure is going to be closer to a measly $3.75 out of $25. Given that Petrillo expressly stated that CALPAL has no connection to Xentel and yet he is posting from Xentel IP address space (http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/5103733870) I doubt even his unimpressive 68.4% claim is true either.

Just like with the email spammers, the big telco's will NOT disconnect abusive customers, no matter how egregious, so long as their customers pay top bucks for the privilege. Most likely the reason why these turds are so rude, is that no-one appears to be falling for the various types of scams this company is operating out of the 480-543-xxxx range - they are now becoming desperate to recoup the money they've shelled out to whichever carrier they are with.

2008-01-198005668064

Yes Scott, it sucks having to make ends meet by knowingly harassing people every working hour. You can almost smell the desperation coming down the phone line from these hickdeads: 01/14/08 11:35, 12:10, 14:00; 01/15/08 12:20, 14:50, 17:15; 01/16/08 14:45, 17:15, 19:35; 01/17/08 12:55, 13:20, 13:40, 14:25, 15:30; 01/18/08 16:10, 16:30, 16:50, 17:30 ET.

2008-01-198005668064

Yep, these bar-stewards have been calling 4-5 times a day for the past week. I have a better solution to calling this number back and hoping that they will stop calling. My solution is to program my VoIP to auto-forward this number to 1-800-201-1085. Let them call and get double-charged for the privilege.

Script-monkey girl on the other end wants to know if I'll participate in a quick survey on travel. Didn't say who for, so I asked and she said "The Vacation Store".

Avoid Xentel like the plague. Give one penny to this huge telejunking operation for any of the so-called charities they represent: expect more calls from other organisations who hire them.

Next time you get a call at dinner time from a $9/hr college drop-out claiming to be raising money for your friendly neighbourhood FOP or State Trooper Lodge, politely but firmly ask them "do you work for Xentel?" and see how fast they hang up on you. No slick rebuttals or anything!

So you claim to work for CALPAL not Xentel, you have a CALPAL email address, yet you post from deep inside Xentel IP address space. I think the word is "busted". Curious to know... is that dorky voice on all those Xentel "customer care" lines yours (http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/8005103967)? Oh, and even if that 68.4% figure is true, 31.6% is still an atrocious percentage to spend on hiring telejunkers.

Inbound number for this one is 1-800-470-5349 ("Rameses Shriners"). If you're being telespammed by Xentel, I would suggest directly complaining to this person every time you get a call:

Skype reports "the number you dialed is either invalid or does not exist". Very suspicious.

2008-01-136136883625

Okay people. With 828 reports and 418 comments to date, it's obvious that Ipsos Reid, whilst exempt from the DNC legislation (by virtue of being Market Research and also by calling from outside of the US) is bugging the hell out of a lot of people. From their own website (http://www.ipsos.ca/about.cfm) there is a very useful telephone number - 1-888-210-7425 - which you can call (use Skype or a payphone) and get further toll-free numbers to vent your frustration at. These Market Research companies are being paid by *someone* to waste *your* time and invade *your* privacy, so it doesn't really matter that they aren't trying to directly sell you something. Like "cm" said, it's no different to telemarketing. So, for each and every call you get, make them pay by Skyping back their toll-free numbers or complain from a freemail account to pat.daniel@ipsos-na.com and ken.rudnick@ipsos-na.com.

The Children's Cancer Research Coalition is a program operated by these folks: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.medical-support.org/welcome.html">www.medical-support.org</a>

I suggest that if you want the calls to stop, don't waste your time asking Xentel to put you on their DNC list, as it rarely works. The best way to stop the calls is to contact the hiring organisation each and every time you are harrassed by the telespammers they hire. From the WHOIS on medical-support.org:

Or firefighters, or state troopers? You guys just like to give that impression when you call.

If there's any reason to boycott an organization *regardless of its apparent charitable status* it's those charities that treat donors (and prospective donors) with contempt, by hiring telejunkers. And not just any telejunker.

This number has called 5 times already today: 2008-01-07 1143h, 1252h, 1405h, 1445h and 1626h ET. All toll-free numbers go straight to voicemail without ringing my phone, but they didn't leave any messages. Why bother calling so many times in one day and not even try to leave a message? Can't be that important. I suspect these jokers are probably working on behalf of one of the companies I do business with.

This is CBCL aka Canadian Bonded Credit Limited, a debt-collector, calling for someone else, so I took a message and got a callback number of 1-866-526-7793. Skyped this number and a guy answers the phone with "CBCL" after half-a-ring. Calling back 416-753-2095, I get 2-3 rings followed by SIT tones and an out-of-service message. Sounds fake to me (in that the number really is in service - see <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/4163500978">www.whocalled.us</a> for another example of faked OOS messages from this debt-collector).

2007-12-174168486915

Another "you've won..." vacation scammer spammer.

2007-12-131234567891

Called 2007-12-12 ~1935h ET. Indian woman said that they had randomly selected couples for a special deal for a "resort in Collingwood". She then asked if they could call back tomorrow at 7PM with more details. I asked where Collingwood is (playing dumb to probe for more information - I know it's in Ontario) but each question was answered with "I am not authorised to give further details". Sounds like they are trying to get your permission to call, in case people on national DNC list try to sue them, even though they are already breaking the law with this first call. I'd like to know which resort it is, but I'm not going to give them permission to call, as they probably keep a recording to prove you gave them permission.

2007-12-118002153521

CustomerLinx is the name of this telejunker, according to the announcer when I Skyped this number. Funny thing is that this company has tons of hits on Google, but not a single website presence. Probably a shell company of one of the ILECs.

2007-12-118008452074

Skyped this number - it is for "Family Reader Service". Sounds an awful lot like these people: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/238/RipOff0238436.htm">www.ripoffreport.com</a> - as others have stated, the CID sometimes appears as "CMTY READERS CL" which is an AKA for Family Readers Service, Family Reader's Services and probably short for "Community Reading Club Of The Firelands". The last name is apt - I hope they burn in hell.

2007-12-108008738635

Skyped this number back. Got straight through to a live operator @ ~1855h ET.

2007-12-094162248298

Called this number back - just rings and rings, no answer.

2007-12-0911259514000000

Yep, they're still trying to get through!

2007-12-069053233900

Yep, these inbreds ignore out-of-service messages too... called 2007-12-05 ~1745h and ~1830h ET.

Looks like each number calling from the 480-543-xxxx pool is specialising in each of the scams-du-jour. Vacation scams, energy slamming and telephone slamming.

2007-12-042017934620

These futnucks have called twice in 3 days - 2007-12-01 1420h and 2007-12-03 1720h ET.

2007-12-012017934620

Most of these telejunkers' CID name is usually "Unavailable" but this one came up blank. Definitely not going to pick up the phone to find out who this is.

2007-12-014167391694

These inbreds called again this morning. Should've blocked them the first time!

2007-11-298005911922

This number called twice on 2007-11-28 (~1000h and ~1100h ET) and left blank voicemail messages. Called this number back and lady answered on first ring with her first and last name, no company name. I asked which company this was and she said "Canadian Cerebral Palsy Sports Association". I asked her if she actually worked for this association and she said that she worked for a fund-raising company on behalf of this association. I asked her which company (fund-raiser) that would be and she said "Siris Solutions". This is another telejunker that has been lobbying the CRTC: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.crtc.gc.ca/public/partvii/2004/8662/individual/bradshaw_k.pdf.">www.crtc.gc.ca</a>

2007-11-255403187335

Called this number back. Female voice on announcer says "Thank you for calling the fund-raising information line...". Not the standard MO for Xentel, so it sounds like this FOP lodge has contracted a different telejunker to most of the rest.

Also, Jack, if messages are too long for here, you can split the messages into chunks.

Another bunch of ass-hat telejunkers who ignore out-of-service messages. What we really need is for the FTC and CRTC to provide a toll-free number to auto-redirect telejunkers to, in much the same way as auto-fwd'ing email spam to the FTC at spam@uce.gov for investigation.

2007-11-206132264730

Called this number back - it is definitely for some outfit calling themselves "The Home Based Business Centre", as confirmed by Denise on 2007-03-21. Just wanted to double-check, as these types of "businesses" tend to be fly-by-night and change names often.

Funny that the automated messages tells callers that they recently signed up online, yet even a cursory Google search on the name or number yields only the same sort of reporting pages as this site, plus <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.blog-city.com/community/tagshare/?/613+226+4730+is+a+scam+operation">www.blog-city.com</a>

Calling back, get a message: "Hello and thank you for calling the general information line. Sorry we missed your call. If you have any questions or concerns, please leave your name with area code and phone number after the tone....". A posting on another website claims that this is someone canvassing for donations from MADD. According to The Toronto Star - <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.thestar.com/News/article/134309">www.thestar.com</a> - MADD uses "paid telemarketers" (AKA professional fundraisers as the telejunkers-for-hire like to call themselves).

Another "Congratulations, you've won a free vacation..." robo-telespam (tele-scam, actually). Probably the same clowns as <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/7278312410">www.whocalled.us</a>

2007-11-18416

Called twice today: 2007-11-17 ~1055h and ~1310h. Another telejunker who ignores out-of-service messages. Almost tempted to unblock them to see who the hell is presenting such an egregiously fake CID and expose the perps.

2007-11-178002687371

Update: this is actually an inbound number for Xentel's events (ticket sales, etc). Still, these numbers need to be documented so that even if it does not appear on CID, if you hear an automated message quoting this number, you'll know who called you.

Tied to the Mississauga Fire Fighters' Association: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://iaff1212.org/index.cfm?section=1">iaff1212.org</a>

2007-11-15 ~2120h
2007-11-16 ~1840h
2007-11-17 ~1205h

It appears that the Mississauga Firefighters' Association is using these criminals to solicit funds. I wonder how much of the money the MFA gets and Xentel keeps?

2007-11-174163611979

2007-11-144163611979

Calling this number, get an out-of-service message. This number called 2007-11-13 ~1925h ET and got auto-forwarded to an OOS number.

2007-11-148008353193

Called on 2007-11-12 ~1830h ET and go auto-forwarded to an OOS number. They called again on 2007-11-13 ~2000h ET. Seems that this telejunker also ignores telco out-of-service messages. This probably explains why people with brand new cell-phone and home phone numbers get tele-spam within the first few days of getting the new number.

2007-11-1111259514000000

3rd time within a month (2007-10-20, 2007-10-27, 2007-11-10). Whoever it is, they are ignoring "out-of-service" messages that my VoIP forwards them to; just like an email spammer who ignores 5.x.x SMTP messages.

2007-11-102012574014

Called this number back. Got an announcer, stating that I had reached an automated number removal system. Classic telejunker sign.

2007-11-107136551771

Amusing... when I call this number with blocked CID, I get "We're sorry... blocked calls to this number cannot be accepted" after 3-4 rings. Looks like even tele-spammers don't like to receive anonymous calls! ;)

2007-11-108003798414

Funny... if I Skype this number, I get an immediate message saying that this number is not available from my calling area (that would be 202 for Skype). If I call with my VoIP account, I get 3-4 rings, followed by SIT tones and a "this number is not in use" message. Sounds like a fake message, as usually SIT tones happen straight away. Unlike most FOP telejunk calls, this doesn't fit Xentel's MO, as their toll-free numbers are callable from anywhere, Canada or US.

2007-11-108003261949

2007-11-105616668534

Yet another tentacle of Xentel Inc/Xentel DM. Calling 561-666-8534, I get the same Xentel-esque announcer (1 second blast of elevator music, followed by the familiar diatribe of "fund-raising efforts are now well under way and we will be calling you back [...] Calling you is the most cost-effective way to reach our goal". Announcer advises to call 1-800-326-1949. Skyped this number - same dorky Xentel guy as per <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/8003073697">www.whocalled.us</a>

2007-11-108667078411

Yep, they are calling every day for the past 4-5 days and never leave a message (my phone doesn't ring for toll-free calls - my VoIP shunts them all straight to voicemail).

2007-11-088008319690

If you're a TD customer, they will contact you from time to time under the "existing business relationship" rules. I called them tonight to update my privacy options with them which should stop them calling.

2007-11-088667018375

I doubt you're being tele-spammed by Google. Most likely a search engine placement telejunker.

2007-11-038667091329

Actual CID is 1-866-709-1329. They've called 2 days in a row, once a day. When Skyping this number back, I get an automated message announcing the "IVM Automated Customer Service Line" with an option to enter my number to remove. If I stay on the line, the announcer goes on to say that the fax number I entered is invalid (didn't enter anything). Sounds like a fax spammer scanning for active fax machines.

2007-11-028883782355

Not with Bell... haven't been with them for over 2 years, so they have no business calling. Called them back and requested to be added to DNC list - they were calling to try and bring us back over to them. Got the standard 30-day DNC turnaround nonsense response. Told them if they call, they will get auto-redirected back to their toll-free number.

They called again on 2007-10-30. Luckily, my VoIP shunted them to an out-of-service number, so we'll see if they ignore out-of-service messages (if they try calling again).

2007-11-014168486928

Calling this number back, get a busy tone. This "W & D" name appears in our call logs 1-2 times every other month.

2007-11-017278312410

Robo-spam message begins with "Congratulations, you've won...".

My motto: never trust a company that uses "2" in place of "to", or "4" in place of "for" in their company name.

Looks like they are recruiting for more telespammers:

2007-10-235103474650

@Shawn & logan: unless you are certain that every penny goes to these "charities", I would suggest not giving your credit card information over the phone. Fund-raising for a number of these so-called Police "Fraternal Orders" and "Activities Leagues" are done by Xentel, telejunkers-for-hire, who will raise the $100,000 for the "charity" and keep the rest. Once you do donate, expect to be bombarded with other Xentel campaigns from numerous different "charities" with different CID names and numbers.

2007-10-237739201784

This is definitely another tentacle of Xentel. The voice on (773) 920-1784 is different to the usual dorky Xentel guy, but the words are almost exactly the same as Xentel's standard announcer (see <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/8003073697">www.whocalled.us</a> for a transcript). This number advises callers to phone (800) 584-5341 for more information. The announcer on (800) 584-5341 is the same Xentel guy. It seems that all the FOP lodges are associated with Xentel.

2007-10-236474774919

Weird... thought I logged this one before. Telejunker trying to hawk VoxCom Security System.

2007-10-234166612791

Called this number back - rings for about a dozen times, then answers with fax/modem. Probably a fax spammer hunting for fax numbers.

Probably the same perps who occasionally call from 90560 and 90754. Just auto-fwd them to an out-of-service number.

2007-10-185143150513

So, folks, that's calls from 514-315-5006, 514-315-5004, 514-315-5002, 514-315-5003, 514-315-0513, 514-315-0512 and 514-315-0514. May as well just block 514-315-50* and 514-315-05* - set and forget.

2007-10-189052820576

Not telejunk (at least not AFAIAC).

2007-10-178888627642

"Hi, this is your local radio station. If you'd like to have your number removed...."

2007-10-178008873141

Called this back. Got a long pre-recorded diatribe from Dan Anderson @ "Forever Green International", about how this company is exploding in growth - 700% over the last quarter, blah blah. Googling around, looks like another MLM scam.

2007-10-178662997422

Called - announcement stated that the company is Portfolio Recovery Associates, a debt collector.

<a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.portfoliorecovery.com/customers/index.asp">www.portfoliorecovery.com</a>

Alternate contact number: 1-800-772-1413

2007-10-178007930282

Josie: *67 will not hide your caller ID to a toll-free number - they can see your ANI information. Best way to investigate these perps, is to use Skype or a payphone.

Called the number - it is definitely for "Education Advance".

2007-10-178667509107

Called 877-372-3495 and number answered right away with faint music and the sound of a headset being placed down. Sounds like your average telemarketer - kicking their feet up in a dead-end call centre job during the night-shift. So, I put through a loud, echoey "hello" sound sample, which caused the phone to ring onto a Card Processing Rep. Still don't know who this is.

2007-10-178667509107

Held on for about 5 minutes to see if anyone would answer with a company name (and not some vague name like "Fah/Fraud/Frahd Detection Center". Eventually, the hold message said that they were experiencing longer-than-usual call queues and that I should call 1-877-372-3495 to speak with a Customer Service Rep.

2007-10-168882636322

Calling back, says company is called "First Horizon".

2007-10-168662981447

This is a debt collector that does not identify their company name.

2007-10-168669170694

Calling back, get [SIT tones] followed by "You have just dialled a number that is not in use."

2007-10-168004249595

Called this number back - it is for Liberty University's Distance Learning and Graduation Program.

2007-10-168668996190

Called this number back - definitely GE MoneyBank.

2007-10-168007249586

Calling back, says that their "offices are now closed" (but not who they are) and that they are open Mon-Fri 7.30AM-8PM CST. Funny, at the time of calling, it was 6:25PM CDT. I guess telejunkers think we're as stupid as they are.

2007-10-164166452105

Definitely for Rogers Communications Inc. They use a predictive dialer for these types of calls, which is only half as annoying as their voice-activated IVR system. Probably relates to 416-446-4105.

2007-10-168881469696

Calling back, I get SIT tones, followed by "We're sorry, you have reached a number that is disconnected or is no longer in service."

2007-10-168004102940

Callback to this number gives a half-ring, followed by busy tone.

2007-10-169052820629

Not a telejunk call (as we sometimes donate old unwanted items to the CDA). Just logging this number for the collective intelligence.

2007-10-164167417551

Added these clowns to my call blocker the last time they called. My VoIP account shuffled them to an out-of-service number, so perhaps they'll get the message this time.

2007-10-166165974001

Called this number back. Unusual ring - stops and stops will long pauses in between. Answers with "You have reached the telephone number removal system" but doesn't say who for.

2007-10-164163699212

Called this number back - it is for HOOPP (http://www.hospitalsofontariopensionplan.com/)

2007-10-168149400200

Gevalia aren't limited to telespam - they've also been dabbling in email spam (in 2005). One more reason why I don't buy Kraft products.

2007-10-168668072010

Confirmed - callback states it is Crescent Recovery, "trying to collect a debt", apparently.

2007-10-168007108749

Inbound number for Xentel DM, collecting "on behalf of" The Arizona Fraternal Order of Police (FOP). Maricopa Lodge Five See comments on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/8007108741">www.whocalled.us</a>

2007-10-168007108741

This is Xentel DM. Called this number back via Skype. It is for the Fraternal Order of Police - Maricopa Lodge #5 (http://www.azfop5.com/).

The automated message advises to call 1-800-710-8749. When I called 800-710-8749, I got a one-second blast of music before the same deep-voiced guy from the (800) 710-8741 number made a similar announcement. Then the familiar dorky voice of the guy from Xentel DM takes over with menu options. Compare the second voice to that on 1-800-308-0094.

2007-10-154163001313

Calling this number back gives 3 rings, followed by fast-busy tone.

2007-10-158887643771

I'm a Rogers customer. 1-888-764-3771 translates to 1-888-ROGERS1. Leaves 2-second blank voicemail messages - very annoying, probably using a predictive dialer, even for customer service calls (if that's what it is).

2007-10-154164464105

I'm a Rogers customer, but I don't know why they would call and not leave a message. Probably using a predictive dialer.

See 877-406-4895.

2007-10-148774064895

Looks like a UK cell number.

2007-10-148002544171

This is Xentel DM, an incessant telejunker that collects on behalf of a number of [quasi-]charitable organisations. They agree to raise a certain amount for the "charity" and keep the rest, just like the telejunkers who call from 713-862-1260 (although probably not the same perps).

2007-10-148003073697

Calling number gives: "[1 sec burst of music] You have reached our automated information system. You're probably calling one of our toll-free numbers that appeared on your display phone. Fund-raising efforts are now well under way and we will be calling you back to explain the programs we have for this year. Calling you is the most cost-effective way to reach our goal. If you prefer, contact our Customer Information Centre at 1-800-254-3163. They will be glad to provide you with any further information. Those phones are staffed 9AM to 9PM Eastern Time. Goodbye for now."

2007-10-148003073697

This is the CID/ANI for calls originating from Skype. I found this out by calling Enbarq [1-888-723-8010] via Skype and their system tells you which ANI you're calling from.

2007-10-138887238010

Calling this number via Skype, gives me customer options for Enbarq.

2007-10-138009336004

Calling back this number via Skype, says: "Thank you for calling Chase" in English, then Spanish.

2007-10-138881112222

Called these idiots back on their toll-free via Skype. Left a nice long voicemail message on their system (3 mins of music) before their voicemail system told me the message was too long (but it saved it anyway, apparently).

2007-10-138881112222

Yeah, like I'm really going to pick up the phone with such an obviously faked CID number. Here's a transcript of the voicemail these clowns left: "[4 secs silence] Hi, this is Gordon with the Travel Center. You've been selected to receive 5 days and 4 nights in Orlando, Florida, near Walt Disney World. Plus 3 days and 2 nights in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and an all-inclusive Bahamas cruise with cabins, meals and entertainment for only 3 hundred 99 dollars Canadian per person. Congratulations - this trip has a retail value of over 29 hundred dollars. The confirmation for your invitation is offer 7-6-7 and you need to call the Travel Center in the next 24 hours, toll-free, at 1-800-832-4670. That's 1-800-832-4670. Call as soon as possible, so you can enjoy your Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Bahamas dream vacation. Thank you."

2007-10-134166651652

Rang off after 4 rings, a telejunker sign (we don't pick up unrecognised numbers and phone has to ring more than 4 times in order to go to VM). No answer when I call the number back.

2007-10-11442088861375

+44 [UK]
(0)20 [London Area]
8886-1375 [Subscrbr Num]

Specifically, (0)208 is Greater (not Central) London.

2007-10-106232386131

Another clue is that both 480 and 623 is Arizona. Also, after call-bloacking (480) 543-1023, that number doesn't call anymore and this number (623) 238-6131 started calling today. Too much of a coincidence. We'll see what happens after I call-block (623) 238-6131.

2007-10-106232386131

Silent call. Looking at comments, I'm betting that it's the same perps as (480) 543-1023. Same "Energy Group" type calls; probably running the same scam.

More robo telespam, this time 2007-10-09 @ 0930h ET. I have now set a selective call fwd for this number back to his home number (905) 272-8256 (got this number from whois on electdavidbrown.ca). When he starts robo-calling for the next provincial election, my VoIP will be waiting for him.

DALLAS - An NBC 5 investigation reveals most of the donations to the nonprofit Texas State Troopers Association end up in the pockets of telemarketers, not state troopers.
Video

NBC 5 obtained documents filed with the IRS that paint a disturbing picture. Of the $3.6 million the Texas State Troopers Association raises annually, 75 percent goes toward fundraising expenses, and according to IRS documents, nearly $2.8 million goes back to the telemarketers, not the state troopers."

Another number that leaves blank VM messages. Calling number back gets automated message "Please enter your party's 4-digit extension number".

Leaves 50-second blank VM messages.

Yep, a 5-digit CID *REALLY* makes me want to pick up the phone. These idiots blatantly fake their CID and call 1-2 times each month. Also get calls from "90560", which are probably the same perps.

2007-10-088662332777

Calls several times a week and leaves blank messages on my VM. Now my VoIP call fwd's them to their own toll-free number.

Looks like another Xentel: telejunkers-for-hire who collect on behalf of non-profits (even though the telejunkers themselves *ARE* for profit). They basically agree to raise a certain amount for the non-profit - anything else over and above that amount, they keep.

2007-10-086472583305

Looks like a telejunker-for-hire, but not sure as I did not pick up.

2007-10-089546606818

Called but rang off after 4 rings - classic telejunker sign. Called number back - automated message states that they do market research and customer satisfaction surveys. The message also said that we did business with one of their clients recently and this was a follow-up call to check our satisfaction. I don't need these types of calls - if I'm not satisfied, *I* will call.

2007-10-0811259514693641

Actual CID numbers are:
112595140000002 and 112595146936415. Calls from one of these two numbers 1-2 times per month. Not picking up to find out - both numbers are on my VoIP blocklist.

2007-10-084163641111

Rang off after 4 rings - a sure telejunker sign.

2007-10-074166637972

Just another local telejunker trying to sell windows or doors. CID was a clear enough sign not to pick up the phone. Just noting all these telejunkers from my CallBlock list in case I have to add them back in at a later date. Most of these local telejunkers (especially the Windows & Doors ones) only call once.

2007-10-074166286071

Just another local telejunker trying to sell windows or doors. CID was a clear enough sign not to pick up the phone. What is it about these Windows & Doors companies that gives them to propensity to telespam?

2007-10-07647

Called only once. Not going to pick up to find out who it is - number is permanently on CallBlock in VoIP account. Probably the same perps who call as "416" (just 3-digit CID).

2007-10-07416

Calls 1-2 times per week. Not going to pick up to find out who it is - number is permanently on CallBlock in VoIP account.

Calls 1-2 times a month. Called number back and got VM announcer advising they do telemarketing for newspapers with an apology for any inconvenience (like that means anything!)

2007-10-078009499935

Calls 1-2 times a month. CID is sometimes (180) 094-9993 and sometimes (800) 949-9935. Called this number back, pressed 2 and asked operator for their website URL: www.startec.com (verified that "tec" was spelled without an "h"). Have them on Selective Call Fwd back to their toll-free number.

2007-10-078006624548

Calls 1-2 times a week. They never leave a VM. Found company name when Googling on the number.

2007-10-074805431023

Calls between 1 and 2PM every day Mon-Fri. Have them on CallBlock list, since looking up the number on whocalled.us :)

2007-10-074071111111

Did not pick up, due to suspicious-looking CID. Hung up without leaving VM.

2007-10-019056089252

Called 2007-10-01 ~17:50ET - no-one there. Googled on their full name and got this page: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/0/203/ripoff0203929.htm">www.ripoffreport.com</a> which lists 905-608-9244 as an alternate number.
