I get calls from these guys periodically on my mobile phone. They are pretty aggressive and rude. They want to talk about investments.
The man acted like we knew each other and was calling back as promised to discuss a stock for a Chinese company making solar energy products. Talked like I was an idiot for not wanting to invest 30-40K. I hung up. Today, a week later, the number called 3 times, just a quick, half ring.
called - didn't recognize number. called IMMEDIATELY after = no messages.
Sounds like a group of hexers trying to cash in on boomers
Called today 2-23-07 office fielded the call and would not transfer the call to me, The caller refused to identify himself and hung up!

Someone called this number to a phone in Missouri. I wanted to find out who it was.
clearly trying to sell something but when they ask for the other owner (they want to ignore me) who is male, they just hang up.
This is a company (and I use the word loosely) that has been called TOGA Exploration as well as numerous other names. Once the guy is caught, he just refiles under another name. The guy who calls you IS RUDE. That’s because he’s an asshole with very little time to scam as many people as possible before they have to run.
What they do is sell you interest in a “company” that finds oil, natural gas, etc. What they don’t tell you is that they either don’t really go and look for it. That’s why they are able to get away with the scam because the people who invest are greedy and stupid and don’t ask the right questions. Yes, you can sell interest in a company that does nothing. Next time you get call a from this asshole, tell him you are the person he’s calling for then ask him a whole bunch of questions, but make it sound as though you’re really interested so you can waste his time for as long as possible.
Do some research for Toga Exploration on the internet and you’ll see just how corrupt this group is. It’s probably about 3-4 family members who go from place to place to setup shop, get as much as they can, then split. They used to have a Texas number. If you do call the number back, please don’t yell at the lady who answers the phone. Unfortunately, she’s just some person who needs a job and is most likely not going to get paid.
I received a call and answered because only the phone number showed up. The man asked for me (but pronounced my name incorrectly). I said my correct name and said "speaking". Then he hung up on me. I tried to call the number back but it gave a busy signal. i tried several times later and a busy signal came on. It was just weird because he sounded like a professional person with a legitimate business call. For him to hang up the way he did left me with a strange feeling. I decided to search it on the internet and that is when I found this site. I would love to know what is really going on.
Same deal as the other postings. I have friends in NY and will find out who this piece of crap is!
This man said he was a stock broker and wanted to mail his card. Asked if i was still on my current Street. Then asked when if i use someone in illinois or out of state when i invest in stock, I replied i dont invest in stock and he hung up.
They called, asked for owner. Who wasn't in, asked what I could do to help him and was told "NO" in a snide tone, and then they hung up. I'd love to know who these guys are.
This number called, asked for the other owner, who is male, and when I asked who was calling, hung up. Rude!!!
