Everyone- these services dial all of the numbers in an exchange- for instance they would dial each and every number of 212-555-0000
and it doesn't matter if the number is a fax or dead number because a computer dials for them and discards the fax/dead numbers.
I am in the 615 area code and just got the the survey question phone call to a work cell phone number which is on the Do Not Call List. Went through the survey with fake answers and got a fast talking operator who would not give me any information other than the company was "Answer Solutions" she would not give out her location or call center company. She would not give out the companies information. She said that she was trying to transfer me to claim my cruise and then finally hung up on me because I was asking too many questions.
Tell them that you are on the Do Not Call List and get the company information. Someone on another call report board said that the calls were from surveyclaim.com but there is no way to contact any live person via that website other than by giving out your information.

Phone rings... I went to answer it and then I heard it ringing like I called or something... I hung up right away.
I have been getting these calls from this number several times a week. I have answered it twice and told the person on the other end to remove my number. But they keep calling back again. Something to do with a survey I took on line. They just won't give up calling.
the something is going on is someone trying to stop this
I've gotten 6 calls from this number in the last 2 days...today I got 2 calls within 5 minutes of eachother. I don't answer, and they NEVER leave a voicemail.

este numero de telefono me ha estado llamando mas de 5 ocasiones se queda en silencio mas de 15 minutos el en telefono espero que hagan una inveatigacion sobre estos casos Garcias
I got 2 calls today from that number. I too am on the DNC List. I was scared to answer in case it is one of those scams that automatically transfers calls from your phone.
I've gotten calls from this number and my phone # is new. Makes me think someone is trying to get personal information from me. I'm going to call BBB and see what is up. I've called the number back and it says it it not a listed phone number. Can they get my personal info from my cell phone?

This number calls my cell phone 3 times a day. I finally answered and caller hung up. They also called my house phone at least once a day. I wonder if it is a scam.
These people call me periodically. I've never picked up the phone because there is no 555 exchange. I knew the 202 area code from business trips to Washington DC, but since I'm on a cell phone, there's no way someone could use directory assistance to get the number. I'm sure it's been phished from somewhere, but won't bother to answer the phone to find out. It rings about twice then they hang up before my voicemail can pick up. No one has ever left a message. I've gotten 7 calls from them so far today (5:58 PM), sometimes an hour apart, sometimes only ten or twenty minutes. They'll probably call another three times before 9:00 PM. LOL, in fact, just as the clock turned 6:00, they called again.
It's really obnoxious, but since no one else has had any luck tracking them down, I haven't really bothered to try, myself.
i have gotten like 10 phone calls from this number in like the past 3 days i tryied to call back last night and got to dirctiorey attinnces its starting to bug me.and the lady told me to dail *42 or somthing and report them or somthing. And the most of the phone calls happen when i am at work they call my cell phone. all the time. this is bullshit i am thinking about getting my number changed. so theses numbers can stop calling me i will fix thire littlw wagon. damit.
Has someone tried answering and just saying "Al Qaeda, terrorism, bombs, pentagon, white house" shit like that so if it is gov wire tap they will jump on you, you will probably end up fine but that could confirm that rumor.
Got a call again today at 8:48 Central Time from these scumbags. Im just gonna post any call I get from these knuckleheads just to make record of the call.
These idiots just keep calling. I don't pickup.

10times in the last 2 weeks
randy russell May 11th, 2007
i answered and got a person. Said that they were from ITSystems and wondered if i wanted to increase my profits with my clients...told them to take me off their list.
I recieved calls from this number 4 weeks ago, and it kind of strange. When my phone ring, it show the 202-555-0000 on my caller ID. So when I answer it nobody respond back, but just hang up. It's frustrated, scarery, and it's anoying too. But when I redial this number to see who just call, and then the my phone carrier operator repond back this is a wrong number. So what I know and I believed this is arresment and threadning. This is something that I and everybody could awared of this matters, Because when I contact the information(411) agent about all this calls, then this is what they said, the 202(code)is DC city code. The 555 #, are the city information #. 0000 ditgit are the computer calls. So the whole #, somebody are making long distance calls or any kind of calls anywhere using my phone # or anybody's ph #. So anytime this person (whoever) makes phone calls to where they want, then our numbers ring first, before their calls gets to that place. So that's why when the ph ring, we answer but nobody respond back. The main point is, down the road, I am going to get whoever's doing this, and he/she's going to be suffer and pay for he/she consequences.
NISE TOFAEONO May 10th, 2007
Same deal with me. They just keep calling and calling. I accidentally hit "send" when I was looking at my missed calls on my cel and it rang them. I thought I hung up before the call got through. Apparently not because they called me right back. How do they get our numbers? There should be some way to get back at them.
When I answered, someone asked if I was "Junette" and I said yes, then I immediatly told them to take me off their call list because I realized it was another annoying telemarketer, then I hung up. Within 5 minutes, I got two calls from what said "unknown number" tell me "F___ YOU!" and they hung up. Just too much of a coincidence..What can be done about this? My daugter answered the next time, saying it was me, and said I'd found work. Why can't this be stopped?
My Vonage caller ID indicated this number called me five times today alone. No message on any of these calls though.
this is getting VERY annoying. getting several calls a day. usually don't answer.. tried calling back but of course call cannot be completed at this time. seems like someone can do something..
Started getting calls from this number two days ago. Knew right away it was some bogus scam or something by the 555 prefix. Anymine doesnt doesnt display anyname on caller ID just number and when answered, its like most where it just rings and cuts off. Never have spoken to anyone through this number.
this # calls my house on a daily basis. It shows up on caller id as Washington, DC 202-555-0000. When i answer nobody says anything. I find this very annoying and suspicious.
some guy called me and asked for my brothers wife.how he new her name i dont know. Anyway, I told him he had the wrong number, he said okay,and hung up.. that was it. The guy called twice, I only answered once,but it was freaky sh-t.......
keep getting calls from this number wen i answer the phone there's a lady on the other end and she she don't say nothing just hangs up the phone . or they just miss call my phone can anybody do anything bout calls like these it's getting on my nerves
I get this number calling me a few times a day and when i answer the person on the other line just hangs up. The number calls me at suspicious times also.If I call back my call won't go through.
Has called me over 20 times in the last week. The phone rings twice and hangs up, never leaves a message. I tried calling it back but had the same experience as everyone else in that the call can not be completed. I've never answered it.
It just rings and then when you answer - they hang up. How irritating is that!
i don't know the number, i don't answer the phone.
sounds like home business stuff, as it came after i investigated a couple on the net. once you do, they call and email you relentlesslly.
if that's their home business, i want nothing to do with it.
I got a call from this number and they asked if I had been looking at CIA website, they continued a barrage of questions in a shotgun type of fashion, I hung up as fast as I could. Intresting enough, I reported this to the my phone company has no record they called me, but I showed them the call log on my cell phone and the guy started flipping out.
I have no idea what this call is and who it came from but it just rings when I pick it up as if I dialed the number. Kinda weird. Seems rigged
i got 3 calls from this number today and i have called it back and all it says is "the number you dialed has been changed, disconnected, or is no longer in service"
This number is calling several times a day. Same info as everyone else...Washington DC and no answer.
it was clear that my computer was phished
the computer info is in my mom's name, but i was the one looking for home based business ideas - these people keep asking for her by name - i told them to take us off the list but got a call from the a few days later when i tried to tell them [calmly] that i didn't want to be on their list the lady freaked out and yelled at me and hung up on me
I received a call on my caller id as 202-555-0000, titled Dir Asst DC. they did not leave a msg. I am still researching where the # came from and who they really are.
oh lord my father let not this person be of evil heart lord let them become a people that is like you and has compassion upon me oh lord god bless me with this to be stoped and never brought up ever again in this life time in your loving arms jesus amen
KING DAVID May 05th, 2007
I GOT A CALL ON MY CELL WITH 202-555-0000 DID NOT ANSWER AS I DO NOT ANSWER CALLS FROM NUMBERS I DONT KNOW, I FIGURE IF THEY REALLY WANT TO TALK TO ME THEY WILL LEAVE A MESSAGE.
ANY WAY I CALL THIS NUMBER BACK FROM MY WORK LAND LINE AND I GOT " INFORMATION " YOU KNOW 1411 DIRECTORY ASSISTANCE STRANGE ?!?!?!?
I have been receiving calls from this number for 5 weeks. When I answer it starts ringing like I had dialed a number. I have never spoken to anyone. I want these people caught.
Repeated calls from this number with the same no response reported by everyone else. It rings, clicks, or there is nothing. I happens over and over since yesterday.
I have received numerous calls from this number - I finally answered today and a guy asked for me then hung up. I rec'd another call about 30 minutes later - I hung up on them.
Calls, but doesn't leave message. When I've attempted to return the number it says I've reached a disconnected number.
Who IS this? (202) 555-0000
This number called 3 times today... if caller ID doesn't show a name / number I recognize I let it go to voicemail... they don't leave a message - their dime!
I don't know if this the root of the problem, but reading through their business model, it sounds like they could easily be a problem source - whether it is this one specifically or not.
Rings then asked if I was there
Anyone ever heard of fone phreaking? Well there is a certain technique that allows a phreaker to make up their own BS number before the call actually connects. Plus there are devices that allow for routine war-dialing... War-dialing is where you setup an electronic device to call a list of numbers (which can be made to just call every number in existence if set up right). This sounds like a phreaker that is just being obnoxious and apparently good at it too since they haven't been caught yet.
We don't usually answer odd numbered phone calls and don't this one but it calls a few times a day...
This number calls twice daily for the past 3 days and everytime I answer no one says anything so I just dont answer it anymore.
I also received a call from this # on April 30, 2007 at 7:15 PM PST
I got a call from this number today, i did not anwser but im really freaked out!
been called twice but the number seems to change... this one is from Atlanta g. and the other one ive gotten called from in the 202-555-0000
its aggravating dooesnt answer and then rings...
I got another call today at 3:42pm.
If I attempt to answer it the phone just disconnects so I can't even yell at them to stop calling me. Bah!
About some home based business. THEY ARE RUDE AND CRUDE. We get from 2 to 6 calls a day. We have ask that they stop calling, that don't work!!
A SCAM; they keep stating that they are calling in reference to "home based business" that we requested info. on. We never requested info. on this. Then they hang up on you. QUITE RUDE!!!
It kept calling for several days and I wouldn't answer it because I knew it was bougus. Finaly I called Verizon and they said their was nothing they could do. I am on the do not call list so I answered it and they asked for me,( freak me out a little) I asked who's calling, they said International Travel connection, I said with a firm voice quit calling my fricken cell phone. So far so good. (4 days with out a call)
after i picked up it continued to ring.
I got 202555000 at 8:23pm...how do we stop these people from calling???
Name unknow and # 2025550000 at 8:21pm 4/27/07
I started getting a call from this number and about 12 others on my cell number after I entered my contact info on the net while looking for work at home sites. I misled by one site telling me that it weas free and it was a lie. I had entered my info laready and they have been calling me ever since. I know it was my fault for giving the info out in the first place. Just wanted to let you know that once one place gets your number they sell it to other people.
I have been getting a cal from this number about 5 times a day. It starts first thing in the morning and doesn't end till sometime in the evening. I didn't even know the prefix 555 was even being used for real. I just wish it would stop!
I'm in Western Canada. I've gotten a call from this number twice already on my cell phone. I've never answered when this number shows up on my cell, but they don't ring for long. All the commenters who say it's probably a work-from-home type of scam are probably right.
Aso no name Apr 27th, 2007
When I tried to call this number back, I got a recording that says the call cannot be completed, because it is not a working number. They call me numerous times a day, but I don't answer. I figured it's some computer generated telemarketing call. How do I get them to stop?
first call was some man wanting to know if i wanted to make xtra money working at home for some travel agency. now we get three rings every evening but nothing there!
when I answered, they asked for my husband (by first name only). when I said he wasn't here and could I take a message, the woman on the line replied 'no I'll call back' and abrubtly hung up.
202-555-0000 Dist of Colombi is what was on the caller id at 8:27pm
I've suddenly started receiving calls on my cell phone from weird unknown long distance numbers. I.E. 202-505-0000
, 218-740-2135. It only rings once or twice then goes away. No messages left at any time. I do not answer calls that i do not recognize, so the only problem I see is the nuisance factor. I hope that if I don't answer, they will go away eventually. I'm going to call my cellphone company and the state attorney generals office to report these nuisance calls and see what I can find out. I'll post any positive solutions here at this site. Remember, patience is a virtue...but spammers will be shot on site!!!! No questions asked!...L
Well i just did some reading online after searching about that number we've been getting called by...The document i read leads me to believe that our phones are actually being tapped...heres a link to the file i was reading...let me knw what u think...search the pdf wil crtl-f and put in the number and read around... http://www.3gpp.org/ftp/tsg_sa/WG3_Security/TSGS3_LI/2002_04_Orlando/S3LI02_088%20TR45%20LAES%20PN-4465-RV1.pdf
I have been getting phone calls from this Number. Never leave a messege and I cant call back. I would like to make it stop. They call like 5 or 6 times a day!
I got a call from this number about 7 PM this evening.I screen ALL CALLS...whoever it was hung up.
Got a call from this number 3 times in a day. Each time I pick up there is no sound and no one talks from the other end.
I recieved a call from this number and it did the same thing. So I amswered and kept asking for jack. then the lady hung the phone up
Keeps callin well a couple times but i wont answer it cuz i dont know who it is. havent tried to call back but it better stop! but i know its from washington i looked it up!
missed call called number back only got that all servers were busy. Not funny husband deployed to iraq thought it might be walter reed hosp.
I have been getting calls from this number for weeks. I just tried to add it to the block list on my call screening, and a message comes up saying "The number you have dialed is not available with this service." So we can't even BLOCK the darned number!
I have been called from this number several times in the last week. I have a son living in the DC area, so I returned the call once, you never know. The woman who answered asked me why I was calling and I said I was returning the call I just missed on my cell phone, so she should know. She kept asking who I was trying to reach and why, she did not give any information when I asked her who was behind the number and was awkward in general. One more number to block.
have been getting a call from this number for weeks. one time it left a message but it was unintelligible. I know its from DC because of the 202. 555 is a informational service for long distance. number0000 should have never been used.
Its been on my cell not my land line and I have never gave out my cell number and its on the no call list
This person has called SO MANY TIMES! Waits till I answer and then hangs up.
So I just "saved" the number as: "Don't answer"
He has called 8 times in the past two days. When I try to return the call- it says "the number has been disconnected." The calls are irritating. These calls are all coming in on my cell phone. And come in about 10 minutes apart.
I've been getting calls from this number as well this whole week. I always seem to miss the call or I notice they call while I'm at work so I don't pick up. I tried to call back one time but the call could not be completed. I'm sure it's one of those "make-money quick schemes."
I get the same weird calls. Out of the blue this number keeps on calling. i have only picked up twice out of all the calls, but all i hear is ringing and then they just hang up on my. I was afraid that it was a scam too.
maybe i'm wrong but i was under the impression the '555' exchange was only used in the movies. has anyone else ever noticed that all phone numbers in movies start with '555'?
Figure this is some kind of long distance scam, again.
Again, figure this is some kind of long distance scam.
Figure this is some kind of long distance scam.
They called 5 x when i answered they said they were calling from international travel..i just hung up on them i tried calling back and it was a 411 number in the states?
Just got another call, same old crap. Just rings when I pick up and then disconnects.
I live in Vancouver Canada , this number called here this evening .. didnt get to the call but noted the number...I was not aware that a 555-0000 were listed numbers ?? Strange
This number also calls me a lot. Also, another number called, and left a message to work at home for the government around the same times. I wonder if they may be connected.
Twice, in the same day I was called by this number. I'm told that I did a survey and that's how they got my number. Only survey I did was a Home Depot survey and found that their IT dept. wasn't aware of their site being phished for information to Spam others.
Just got another call from this number. I answered on the second ring, and an old woman started talking. She was barely intelligible. I repeatedly asked her not to call my number and said that I was on the DNC list. She ignored that. She asked for Sam Green, I think. I asked her what number she was dialing, and confirmed to her that what she said was my number, but I didn't know the guy she was calling. She thanked me and hung up.
I received this call at 2:44pm this is my first time getting the call I will know be checking to make sure that I do not have any extra charges to my cell phone bill the nubmer came up as the Dist of Columbus
Just got a call from this number on my cell phone, which is on the FTC Do Not Call list. I answered on the third ring, but my phone lists it as a Missed Call. No Caller ID info other than this number, which seems to be bogus.
Is it possible that infocison uses this number?
Called several times April 13th in afternoon. Sometimes couldnt get answer. Tonight at 9:00p.m. we got the call and they wanted to know if we would like to work from home. We said no.
OMG! I've gotten 7 calls from these fools tonight. They call about every half hour. I've asked them to stop calling 3 times. Make that 8 times. Just received another call while typing. As soon as I answer they hang up. 6:00pm, 6:36pm, 7:08pm, 7:24pm, 7:38pm, 7:47pm.
Calls all the time i just answer and hang up
I have received about 6 calls from this number in the last 2 days. If I answer it there is no one there, just silence.
John Hicks Apr 12th, 2007
Person has called me 5 times today and every time i pick it up they hang up right away. Then i got to call it back and the call can't be completed. It is bugging the hell out of me!
I get this call at least once a day but no one on the other end! It's on my cell phone as well, what can we do about this? HELP!!!
Actually spoke with these guys once. But they were pretty much not interested in a dialog. They were most interested in getting a yes to specific questions and moving on. Like their bonus relies on it.
