stop calling me!
sickofpols Nov 29th, 2008
I don't need another crappy mortgage co. especially US bank. They call every day and leave no msg. When I call them back I get fax noise or no response. Irritating! What are we all on the nocall list for. BS. I hate banks and the fact the a s s h o l e gov't is requesting a working class co. the big 3 to make a plan when the 750 bil is being spent unscrupulously by financial evil creeps in bed with bush
sickofpols Nov 29th, 2008
Been getting calls for months. Found this site, called the 800# and the lady told me I would be taken off the call list and to give it 24hrs. Let's hope it worked!
They called my cell phone.. weird... and I called back from my home phone and it had a busy signal
Has called for about 2 weeks, tried calling back, number doesn't answer.
A COLLECTION AGENCY "AACC" WITH A NEW DISGUISE AKA - > "CONTACT AMERICA"
IF THEY HEAR THE WRONG VOICE, THEY HUNG UP IN HOPES THAT THEY COULD FISH
FOR THE RIGHT ONE ( MALE OR FEMALE VOICE )
CONTACT AMERICA IS ALSO AN OUTSOURCE SOLUTION TO CUT COSTS IN TELEMARKETING...
YOU CAN EITHER PLACE YOUR COMPANY NAME AS ID OF THE CALLS OR LEAVE IT AS-IS ( CONTACT AMERICA )
FOR NO EXTRA CHARGE.... SLEEK HEY????
I'm getting very tired of being called every day by these people. I signed up for the Do Not Call list, so why am I still getting these calls?
I have also received calls from this number....nobody is ever there and they leave no message. Frustrating to say the least!!!
They keep calling daily & they do not answer. I did my part & filed a complaint with the DO NOT CALL registry.With enough complaints maybe these idiots can be shut down.
They called and left no message and when I called back I was immediately put on hold and then spoke to a representative who told me the number was part of Contact America and they were offering services and products. I asked to not be on the list and he took me off.
i don't answer their calls but when i looked at their website, it says they call for financial institutions.
Same as above. I phoned the FTC and, in addition to the normal complaint, gave them this page address to see that it's been 2 years and it's about time they did something.
I called the Federal Trade Commission today and they said if they get enough reports they will be able to investigate this company. PLEASE CALL and report this company! The number for the FTC is 1-877-382-4357
. Enough is enough! These complaints go back to 2006......if it is a glitch in the system, as I have been told....it should not take 2 years to repair.
Also, according to the man I spoke with, they were calling on behalf of US Bank or Lane Bryant. I am calling US Bank right now to report this harassment.
They always call, I never pick up. I did find their 800 # and it's 800-887-6837
. I did the company directory and finally found a John Hoy. I decided I would call and harass his voicemailto get them to take my # off. If you would like to join me, his extension is 201. I'm sure he'll find it sooo funny!! LOL
Maybe someone should add the following email addresses to a mega spam mailing list.
These fools keep calling me at least twice a day for several weeks. Everytime I answer the phone they hang up. They never say a word, so I belch, whistle and scream loudy immediately after answering. I have also tried contacting them via the number listed on their web-site http://www.contact-america.com/contact.html, but no one ever answers or calls back either. This is criminal and I wish someone would file a clas action law suit against them ASAP.
Lady from "Contact America" asked for "Charlotte White" on 6/28/08 @ 10:11 A.M., which awoke me from my sleep.
This number has called several times, when I answer they hang up. They have been calling for several days. It is very annoying to answer the phone and they hang up.
I actually answered this time. It was someone who is selling insurance on one of my credit cards to make payments on my balance "if something happens to me...like a natural disaster!" First of all, I don't have a balance on this credit card (Lane Bryant) and number 2 - this is a terrible waste of insurance dollars (I am an insurance agent..)so I would advise everyone to either ignore these calls or tell them you are not interested. I never gave permission to lane bryant to give out my phone number....seems like a 3rd party privacy violation to me..
Something is terribly wrong when three different outsourcing companies call you day and night, for weeks and months on end. The companies harassing me are: General Revenue Corp., Contact America, and the latest, N. C. O. Group, Inc. I checked with the FTC for suggestions about how to tell these people to bug off; the most important suggestion was to write a letter to them to tell them to "bug off". However, I did that with General Revenue Corp.; they disappeared and Contact America showed up within days! NOTE: Look on these complaint websites at the comments, and notice when the comments begin. I'll bet the comments all begin around June or July, 2006. That's not wierd; that's frightening! (But what does it mean?)
They call every night - it has been a month now. No one there when you answer. I am guessing they are logging the fact that we answer the phone.
They attack by cell phone, too. 785-735-2215
is the number that shows up on cell phones. A few days ago I cussed out the bimbo who called and began to make threats. These goons are on the attack now, of that I am certain. I have an idea of where this all started in my situation, and it was not me.
A few days ago I cussed out the bimbo who called and started making threats: "According to federal law, we are calling you..." They are on the attack now. Fortunately, the money I pay to AT&T for caller ID is paying off handsomely. Calls are being blocked. Incidentally, these goons are using other numbers, including 1-208-906-1006
Several calls over the last ten days at various times of the day. If someone picks up the phone, they immediately hang up. I wonder if someone is trying to identify a pattern of when the house is occupied?
per pddger Jun 23rd, 2008
This time there was a bimbo on the line who actually started to make threats: "We are required by law to notify you that..." Earlier this year, I had problems with a different group that is know occasionally as RCC. I am getting the impression that when a credit bureau challenged RCC, my number simply rolled over to this new Contact America. However, as with RCC, I have noticed that these companies seem to morph their identities and locations a lot. Incidentally, when the bimbo from CA started reading her threats to me, I unloaded on her my sailor's vocabulary from the U. S. Navy; she did not hang up or anything. (I suspect there is something else behind why I started getting these calls to begin with, and I am working on that. When the novel comes out it will make a great movie. Ha.)
Called, left no message. Caller ID says Idaho. Weird. Why would anyone waste their time and ours for NOTHING?
Could this be a new mutation of that other call center in Illinois? In an earlier posting here the contact info for Contact America is given as 7777 Girard Ave., La Jolla, CA 92037. Phone: 800-887-6837
. I have traced other such nuisance callers to this general area for addresses; it seems that the addresses are all mail drops only. Incidentally, I have gotten rid of all my credit cards. From now on, cash or check only.
These jokers called me about 9:30 AM June 5, 2008. As soon as I picked up the phone, after three rings, they hung up on me. I am afraid that this is going to get worse until the voting is finished in November. Their web page promotes them as an "uber" telemarketing and survey service provider. They can go drown themselves for all I care.
Call them back, when they answer just tell them to put your number on their do not call list. The guy told me it takes 24-48 hours. We'll see.
I get calls twice a day but I never answer. They never leave messages and I'm just getting tired of the calls.
Have been receiving calls from this number for over a week now. It only rings once or twice and then hangs up. I called the number back. Some guy answered the phone and said that he would put me on their do not call list. He said it would take about 24-48 hours. Lets see if this stops the calls.
I am so tired of the 2-3 phone calls a day from these people
This number calles all the time ,never leaves messages and when you do answer they wanted to talk to my sister about her catherines account fot catherines womens clothing. She owes nothing on her card ans still has a credit line with them. This started after a online purchace with Lane Bryant womens clothing.They also call from 208-906-1006
These are the same people i have found out and want to pass on to you the public and to thank those of you who have taken time out to band together against these pishing creeps
This number i BUSTED today. They wanted to contact my sister about her Catherine's account.Catherines is a womens clothing store.They issue credit cards - Catherines credit cards you can use with them and other clothing stores.MY sister has wonderful credit report with no non pmts or late pmts.If we dont answer they will NOT leave a message.They will NOT talk to anyone but my sister.Good luck to the idiots she works hard and pays her bills.No reason to hassle us daily with hang-ups.WE contacted Catherines main office and nothing is wrong with my sisters account.Hope this info helps people out.We will not be picking up to them anymore.
Unlike others, I called them back and after holding for 2 minutes someone did answer...although they were nice they were not capable of removing me from thier call list....
I get calls from them in the evening mostly (7:30pm). Caller ID shows Contact America. If I let it go to voicemail they leave no message; if I answer, no one says anything and it almost sounds like it hangs up on you, but with no dial tone.
They cannot be reached on a call back. They call and when you pick up noone is there.
they call several times a day, they don't respons if you answer the phone. Very annoying, calls on weekends also.
phone rang a few times, when I answered there was no one there. I am on the DNC list - this is frustrating! 3rd time that they have called me
Every day I get a call from this number (208-906-1006) and there is never anyone on the line to talk to. I'm getting very upset since I'm registered on the NO CALL list both for Missouri and the Federal list.
These calls MUST STOP!!!!!
Leslie Ives Apr 16th, 2008
Contact america has called everyday for the last 3 weeks. Twice a day and there is no on there when you answer. Very frusterating!
This number keeps calling me & doesn't leave message. Call it back and says office closed. How do I make them stop using my minutes up??????
Phone number 208-906-1006 belongs to a company called Contact America, website www.contact-america.com
They have called me every day for a week and a half, many times a day (four and upwards). When I pick up they disconnect. Their goal was to verify that it was a viable phone number for telemarketing purposes. When I originally called back to attempt to identify the caller, I received a message stating that "Our business office is now closed, please call back during normal business hours." After the message played, the call was terminated.
Today when I called back, I was placed on hold with the same message that Layla Kelley had, saying "Contact America, please hold. A customer service representative will be with you shortly." I remained on hold for an extended period of time (approximately 30 minutes) prior to having a representative pick up, to whom I demanded to remove my number from their call list. She stated that I would be placed on their do not call list within the next 24 to 48 hours. I stated that should they call me again, I would be pressing harassment charges against them.
Be patient, and be clear about being removed from the list when you do finally speak with a representative.
Harassment Apr 09th, 2008
They've called me 5X and haven't left a message
These clowns have called on/off for weeks withou leaving a message. We did not pick up the phone figuring it was a telemarketer. Finally we did pick up because we wanted to find the source since we our phone is unlisted and registered for DoNotCall. They tried to walk us into buying credit card insurance, in an extremely deceitful way, buy just reading some "facts" then ask if you "understand", you think they are asking if you understand thier comments, not that you understand what they are signing you up for. We thankfully picked up on it told them we do not want to sign up for anything, they got all huffy, we hung up. Since then they have called 5 more times in the past 2 weeks. I recently discovered selective call blocking on my phone service, so they will not get through using the same number again.
DoNotCallMe Apr 07th, 2008
Same as all other comments ...never leave a message, when I call back "our office is closed, please call back during normal business hours"....website for this company is www.contactamerica.com...I have sent an e-mail to these jerks requesting to be removed from their phone list. Hopefully this will help .. will post again if it gets rid of these boneheads....
I get this call everyday and when I answer it sounds as if someone is dialing out and then they hang up. When I call back I get a voice mail to hold and they never pickup. Please send to phone company for prosecution.
Called and left no message.
This is my 2nd call with 2 weeks. I refuse to pick up.
Called me here in Gaffney, SC from this number (785-735-6099) as well as another number a few weeks ago 208-906-1006
from Boise ID). Contact America doesn't leave a message, and their office is always closed... Funny that they need / have more than one number in different states to "contact America" it seems.
I get 3 to 4 calls a day from this number. I wish I had the address so I could sue this person.
When are the DNC actually going to DO anything about this companies that call us repeatedly. Especially those that hang up when you answer and don't even give you their company name when you call back (and of course get an answering machine). I notice this "company" has been calling people since 2006, more than enough time for the DNC to stop this. It's not like they call you once and leave it at that. I'm sick of it.
Again today!!! what is going on?? i also get wierd text messages i wonder its the same people?
Picked up but no one was there. Calleed back and got an answering machine.
They have called several times. I do not recognize the company so I let the answering machine pick up. They, of course, leave no message.
left no message, and when i called back they put me on hold.
this is rediculis i have no idea who you are and i found out that this is a collection agency for business that turn our names in i wish they will stop calling me and leave me alone this is not a telemarketer they would of said something these people hang up when u answer the phone
I keep getting calls and no one answers
You can report this to the FCC, I have done it for other telemarketers.
However, I just called them back. The script is that they are a call center and they make outbound calls on behalf of your mortgage or credit card company. They claim they will take you off the list. They are calling with special offers from you current mortgage or cc company - I told them I am NOT interested and to take me off. We'll see.
I am on the Do Not Call List and have taken my number off just about everything possible. They do not leave a message. Jerks.
We have received numerous calls from Contact America although not all from the same phone number. I have reported them as having called a number that is listed on the "Do Not Call List". Hopefully a large fine will put a stop to
the practice of them calling and not saying anything
Someone called and left a message several minutes long that indicated he had NO idea he was through to my voicemail. In fact, the gentleman said "Yeah, I better never work here again, yeah, after the things I been saying. Yeah, I better keep my job at WalMart. Heh heh heh."
Class act. Class act.
Called multiple times with no messages left, finally got a message asking if I had received my replacement credit card from a clothing store.
They have called me twice even though my phone number is ont he do not call list.
.....who is this and why are they calling me?
automated dialer calls at all hours of the night where is THE FCC
They call, hear your voice, and hang up. I checked my caller ID and there have been ten calls in October. I called the 1-800 number and you go into a computer operated directory. I'm about ready to lose it!!!!
These peopl are also very rude if you tell them that the person you are calling for is not available.
Pissed Bristol Oct 01st, 2007
They are called 'Contact America' and i think thats all they do!! I never get a response, so i just hang up..i'am on the (do not call list)so why are you callin??
They call. I pick up, no one says anything. I do not pick up, they leave no message. Tracking these idiots down to tell them not to call anymore is a giant pain in the arse. Horrible company, hate US Bank for working with them.
I've been getting these calls for months now. They call twice daily, and if I answer there is nobody on the line. And if I let the machine get it, there is no message. Contact America is "A call center outsourcing" service, according to its Website at http://www.contact-america.com/ This, then, is an apparent violation of the Do Not Call registry (as I am on that registry) and I have filed a report with DNC. I recommend that others do the same thing.
They keep calling but no one is there when you say hello. Everyday but differing times for almost a month now!
When i answered hung up! Caller id did not catch name.
They call three times daily. They leave no messages or talk when answering the phone. Starting to piss me off!!
These fools call everyday and it is annoying. They do not say a word and just hang up.
pissed in NJ Jun 26th, 2007
"Contact America" telemarketing 208-906-1006 seems to call along side "Verizon" telemarketing 309-820-9933
They called everyday and no one was there so i called back and the 1st time they hung up on me and then I tried again and got a hold of someone.
I am at my wits end with this number calling me more than 3x's a day! To make matters worse my telephone company is of no help at all in the matter.
Mrs. Lauchland Feb 26th, 2007
I get calls from this number 208.906.1006 everyday and each time I answer it they hang up. And no says hello. I want this to stop. I'm fed up with these calls.
Have been receiving calls 2 weeks ago at the rate of 1-2 per day. Same issue, when I answer there is no-one there. Calls back to the number are not answered.
Update: I just got through to the 800 number. The woman was very nice and said she'll add my number to the DNC list. Whew! Hope this helps someone else—just keep trying.
tHEY CALL ONCE A DAY AND THERE IS NO ANSWER. i EVEN TRIED CALLING BACK THE PHONE RING NO ONE ANSWERS
I've been getting a call from this number for the last week on my cell phone. I have T-mobile and I asked them to block this call, but they said they can't. I also tried to call Contact America, but only get an answering machine. Any help would be appreciated!
They keep calling but no one is there when I answer the phone. This really needs to stop!
I called the number below and they we're very professional and put me on the DNC list and I have not been called by them since--3 months
Here is their address:
7777 Girard Avenue
La Jolla, CA 92037
Can someone who lives near by there go to the office and kick someones ass please?
they have been calling everyday for about a week, and leave no message. When you answer no one there. CID shows: Contact America
they call many times and hang up when you answer the phone. Have called alot the past few days
Call at night, morning, day, always hang up. If someone knows how to slam these people, hurt their business or make them look bad in public, please post how!
I answered and I heard a click. I called back, they answered, and then hung up. This is very unprofessional and quite annoying!
Everyday, twice a day. No message. I hate them. But here's something you might like to try. THEIR real number is 800-887-6837
and if you press 3 you can be connected to their emergency cell phone. No need to talk after you are connected. Why should you, they never do!
And yes again they have called .... Many times these idiots have called. Was lucky enough one time to actually get a person. My number was given to Contact America by GMAC. I asked them to remove me from their calling lists. Unfourtunately, I still get the calls and the hang-ups. Latest offense: 12/16/2006 11:19AM EST. Showed up as Contact America @ 208-906-1006.
They've been calling me at random days/times listed below with no messages left. I've programmed my phone to reject this phone number, so every time they call, they'll get an automated message saying that the party they're trying to reach is not accepting the call. Fight back the telemarketers using a telephone with a built-in phone number reject feature!

they call every night and now I happened to be home in the day and got one. Finally I looked it up here. No response when I answer, not able to get through on call back. What do they want???
I get the same as everyone elso. The phone rings I pick up and say hello and they hang up. It's annoying, I filed a claim with Donotcall.gov and have not heard anything back from them.
same here, same here, same here.
