got a call answered sounded like call center in back ground hung up when no one talked looked at caller id and # shows as 123-456-7891
+ and my cell number really!!!!
Who the h...l do they think they're kidding, using a phony number like that. It's locate and remove time!!!
It should be illegal to be able to make up a fake number that displays on our caller ID. FCC should look into this issue and resolve it. Fortunately, we are able to block these callers very easy.

We have been receiving calls from this number and here is what I was told: people using VOIP show this number often on caller IDs, so they can be calling from anywhere in the world, but over the internet. They could be using skype or who knows what service and you will never trace them. We have a major problem with this because our office phone number is very close to this number, so people call us back and complain that WE are calling them. But I have a feeling the calls are from a number of different scammers hiding where they are by use of VOIP. We have also received MANY car warranty calls. We are an office so we know they are not calling anyone in particular.
Has anyone else seen something on their phone when they received these calls saying Charge Complete? I've received this call three times in the last week and each time I've seen that coming across rather then a name of someone. You might check you phone bills to make sure. This is on my company cell phone so I'm a little concerned somebody may be trying to charge something to that phone.
I pressed one and spoke to a representative. He said my warranty had expired. I asked for which car. He didn't know, but said his database told him mine was expiring. I requested to be removed from the database. We will see what happens. Does anyone know whom to complain to for these matters? Anyway to block the number? I believe they are changing the number that appears on caller ID to keep people from recognizing the scam.
These calls started today. I am on the "Do Not Call" registry and do not understand why I am still receiving ese calls of this nature. It seems that one company stop their interval of calls and another one starts.
Call about my auto warranty expiring. I hung up immediately. The message was pre-recorded.
I swear I will never be the customer of Collingwood Cranberry Resort!

I just got a call from 1234567891. Its was a man with a thick Idian accent. They asked for me by name and when I said it was me, they asked me if I owned my home. Instead of answering them, I asked who they were and they made up some fake Mortage Company name. I told them I wasnt interested and then hung up.
the number called my house more then once, i was very curious so i picked up..it was an indian man that asked for my dad and i said hes not home can i take a message and he said are you a family member and i said yes and he asked if i was over the age of 27 i said no and said ok thanks and hung up
We just right now got a call from that number and there was nothing but dead air on the other end, even after repeated "hellos" from me, so I hung up.
I have heard that answering similar sorts of calls can make you vulnerable to people later on using your number to bill their own long distance calls - true?
they've called several times and when I've answered before no one responded. Today however a guy with a thick indian accent wanted to have his supervisor call back after 7pm for a vacation we won to collingwood. He knew my name as well. I said no - take me off the list and he HUNG UP. Didn't respond to me at all. This is very irritating as I work from home and they get through call privacy.
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.
did not answer and they left no message
They don't even answer when I pick up ... they just hang up.
They called today, I answered, they addressed me by 'Mrs' (not married) and my last name. Wouldn't say who it was. I'm in Ontatio, 519 area code.
Resort in Collingwood, thick Indian accent, very hard to understand. I have told them to stop phoning me, yet they keep calling!
My caller ID had something like"security number" for the caller. I did not answer it, either.
me too.didn't answer 2 days in a row & refused to answer.
can't use call block
I got a call from this # 2 or 3 days in a row this week. Both had heavy Indian accents and kept calling me by my husband's first name. I am freaked out how they know it, and I told them to stop caling me. They claimed to be from bell one day, and the next day claimed to be from a reasearch company and today I didn't give them a chance. I told them stop calling me.

We got the call at 6:12pm, my spouse answered and had to ask the guys name several times. Thick Indian accent named Mike. We asked for the supervisor and surprise. got hung up on!
I found this one really strange, I was surprised other got this call.
Some Indian guy (Harry) called and said we won a vacation and that his manager will contact us tomorrow morning. I'll make sure not to answer the phone. Sounds like a scam to me!
That's a completely bogus number. This scammer is using a Caller-ID cloaker or VoIP kit to alter it to this made-up value. Assholes.
I answered and same thing, and Indian women...I hung up. Sounds fishy.
I answered and it was a indian sounding man saying he was calling from a resort in Collingwood Ontario, I hung up.
yep,me too.didn't answer.
No idea, never saw a number like that. Didn't answer.
