Just the same as 210-331-5236. This is an employee of West Corp, world's largest "customer support" company. I believe employees, working from their homes are paid per phone call whether completed or not. More calls, more money. WEST is apparently not going to do anything about this, just passing costs on to their customers.

I am considering either going to Skype exclusively or cell and drop the land line.

OK, number belongs to WEST CORP, which is a provider of phone spam and probable legitimate phone contacts. It employs workers who make the calls from their homes. WEST is a legitimate corporation, assets about a billion, perhaps owned by WELLS FARGO through WACHOVIA with whom it had earlier merged. In any event, it has a Code of Conduct and a hotline to report employees who are breaking the code.

That hotline number, supposed to be up 24/7 and owned by a third party is 800-480-9503. Phone and complain, either 210-331-5236 is a number they own but aren't using and it's being hijacked or they have a demented employee who needs to be terminated.
Alternatively, a lawyer might find this interesting and in most cases, first consultation is free. Or better, complain now and sue later perhaps.

I've received calls from this number and either "west" or "private person" as caller for at least 2 years. Finally, I determined that this is an uncompleted voice mail mailbox, number assigned and connected but no message. At the end of each month, it stops for a couple of days, then starts back up, early the next month. I think this is a hacker tool, known to phone freaks who use it for a lot of reasons. In my case, I do have a stalker, know who it is but not location. Psychiatrists said that this is indicative of a mentally ill person, in that it has gone on so long.

So far today, it has called 4 times.
