The phone call comes in on a few different numbers, it's always the sound of phones & cash registers, then a woman's voice (in Spanish) tells me I've won $1,000 and to press 1 to claim my prize. We get this call 2-3 times a day - This is a business landline they're calline. I've pressed 1 before - reached an operator, and asked (in Spanish) to take me off the list, and I got hung up on. They JUST called again - new # 701-734-8989. called again on 208-991-1197

Got a call from this number about a week after posting on Criag's list...but have posted many times on Criag's list in the past several years and never got a call from this number until this week. The call came in on 2/26/09...didn't answer for several reasons (was at work AND didn't recognize the number)....no message was left. Does anyone know how to get off this caller's list?

Got a call from 208-991-1197 saying that I had won $1000.00 cash prize in Spanish on my cell and to press 1 to claim my prize. Don't know who this is but a reverse phone look up traces it back to Boise, ID. Have not been able to find company name. I was able to find out the following about their service provider tho!

Picked it up, and an automated voice just said "Hello. You have won a trip to Cancun, Mexico. To claim your prize--" and about this time I just hung up. My mom has recieved calls like this. Once she actually wanted to see what it was so she pressed 1 (this was a call saying she could erase her debt on her credit card) and an operator asked for her credit card number. When she asked which one they hung up. That's probably what this is too, or something like it. Strange thing is, this was on my cell phone, and my cell phone isn't in any phone book that I know of

Did not leave message. Sounds like another one of those bizarre calls from mysterious, foreign language-speakers who have no idea who they are calling, but just blather and hang up. I've had half a dozen such calls over the past year and I am sick of it. I don't even answer unknown numbers anymore because of these idiots.

a US telemarketing call to a Canadian cell number. i started getting these about a month ago. these people should be shot for costing me money to take their stupid call.
I'm sure that the telco's won't do anything, we are paying them the money for the cell useage.

I did not recognize the number, so didn't answer (let such numbers leave a msg).

message was 1 second long

Im sure if you answer, your proven valid number will be sold to the next group of SOBs.

They seek incompetent people, to relieve them of cash.

I recently recieved a call from the number 208 991 1197. This was a pre recorded message claiming that I had won a free trip to cancun. However I have no recollection of ever entering a contest. I called the number back and recieved another pre recorded voice message. It allowed me to remove my number form their call list. This number is a telemarketing number it is based for travel purposes. If you are scared that it might be a scam do what I always do call them back and remove your number!!!!!

I jsut recieved a call from 208 991 1197. The caller was a pre recorded voice message of a mans voice. He "claimed" that I had won a trip to cancun mexico. The message said to accept press one. I said no thank you and then the call was disconnected.

I got a call from this number today telling me I won a free trip to Cancun and to press a certain number to collect the prize. Of course, I didn't because I suspect I would bounce into a fee service or something equally shifty.

I have received a number of calls from different numbers where it is the same message. Unfortunately, I do not speak spanish, and each time the same number calls throughout the day (At least 5 times), I just hang up immediately. Honestly, with all the calls I get a day, and with their number changing constantly, it's hard not to answer the stupid call at least once a day!
