This is bullsh*t!! There should be something we can do to get these people to stop calling! I was thinking about sitting down after midnight on a weekday... marking my number private and start calling these numbers back. Hopefully, if I can find a working number and someone picks up, hang up and call back in about five minutes! Give them back some of the hell they've been giving all the other hardworking people!!

These guys call my unlisted cell a few times a week from different spoofed numbers.

733-753-0974 is the other, I've added them to my phone contacts under "awesome"

The phone company did not sell your number, the marketers use war-dialing type software and get your number by chance.

You're also barking up the wrong tree going after the owner of the number on your caller ID, Richard Fanning in this case, the number is being spoofed. Poor guy.

Check out the address and link Jack posted below, harass VP Marketing.

These people obviously make money and will not go away until it stops flowing. If you are stupid enough to fall for this scam, how the hell can you afford a phone, let alone get a license, a car and new warranty? Scarey. Drivers tests clearly need to be more difficult and phone companies should require an IQ of 60 or higher for customers.

Gee...I guess the warranty on my 1994 Honda will soon be up. I'd better hurry up and sign up for an extended warranty for my 15 year old car with some jackass over the phone. I sure would not want to work with my local car repair shop or a reputable dealership to extend a warranty that expired 12 years ago! I guess the thing that frustrates me is that there are people out there that actually fall for scams like this.

I have not given my number to anyone that is not family, why is the phone company selling our numbers to telemarketers and spending OUR minutes on the phone. I do not purchase things over my cell to anyone I dont know. At least twice a week my minutes are being used by phone scams. The telepnone companies need to stop selling our numbers to these people.

I am really careful about who I give my number out to, seeing that I am under the age of 15. So it very strange that I keep on getting these calls. Someone really has to investigate this because it is very creepy. Also, my warranty hasn't expired becuase I don't have a car! And I've tried calling the number but it gets cut off. I guess the best thing to do is report it.

With Mr. Fanning's name and address, and number, the Kellogg police should be able to stop this if they receive enough complaints and filed reports of phone harassment. This will take a lot of people needing to call the department 208-784-1131 and asking to file a report, get a report number, and call to follow up with finding out what actions are being taken. The information needed to file a report is time and date of call, and Mr. Fanning's info is: Richard Fanning (208) 783-0733 446 Railroad Ave, Kellogg, ID 83837
Reports work best to stop this when they are from multiple sources who have been called multiple times. Also, police will try to put this off on you needing to communicate with FCC instead of them but I have spoken with cell phone companies and it IS within the scope of police duties to report and follow up on harassing calls. Good luck!

I suspect these calls are a charge-off collector's india based farmed out nuisance caller boiler-room which is set up simply to annoy people who's charge-offs are lawfully un-collectable when their past the statute of limitations. Again, I'm guessing this's actually traceable back to Global Vantage, aka AACC, and they're fishing to try and find out if the unlisted cell numbers are ours.
