It's like ... they call my elderly mother and myself at two different households, referring to the bank we do business with; but, then, when you call the bank ~ they have no clue as to what you are speaking of.

Robo Call seeking to have person answering call to "press 1 to...." SCAM.

They actually gave me a valid call back number of 206-317-2751. I called to see how long I could keep them on the line before they hung up. They finally hung up when I asked what company it was.

Credit Card Scam!

Come on! Isn't there ANY way to stop them? How many more complaints do I fill out with National Do Not Call Registry, the FTC, and the FCC before I get an answer or get to take them to court and make some money?!

Message recording saying credit card change before stimulus package runs out. SCAM that keeps on giving.

Call came from Washington, D.C to Kansas at 16:45 hours CDT on 5-26-11. Call not answered and no message left. Classic Robocall.

Robocall with provision to be taken off the list by dialing 9.

Some of the ''Heathers'' and ''Rachels'' calling about credit repricing have been stomped by the FTC before. Send complaints early and often to them and attorneys general.

Below is a link to my fave resource of telco alerts. The files should all be clean recordings, and the page covers several carriers and regions so you can likely find the sound files which are most authentic to your area. The site is also a treasure chest of fun facts about phone systems.

RE: Fighting robocalls

If you’re contacted by a machine, fight back with a machine.

Play the U.S. Special Information Tone (SIT) signal for a ‘vacant circuit’ into your receiver. The robot will dutifully erase your number from its memory.

For more information, Google ‘SIT wav file’

The caller is a recorded message from Heather. She has called innumerable times, and there's no way to tell her to stop because it's a recording. I'm sure it's a credit card scam. Can no one stop these blasted nuisance calls?
