Calls between 1:45 and 2:31 daily, today received a call at 10:16 a m. recorded message "this call is for (my name) my namfore is Matthew Roberts I have paperwork to deliver to you at your place of employment or to your home for more information call" some 800 number that i don't remember
Robo call: "My name is Doug Keller, and I have papers to serve you with at your home or place of business. Please call Lane Powell & Associates at 866-531-9659....." Blah blah blah. Also associated with this Los Angeles area number - 213-330-0187
(no longer in service). BBB site lists their address as a empty lot next to a pizza place across the street from a transit station in Atlanta. SCAM. I believe the legal term is "fraud - theft by deception". These losers have a defunct collection agency's write-off list, and are attempting to use threats of legal action to scam people - please report them to the Attorney General of your state, and never give them any money or more info about yourself! If you are on the "do not call" registry, you should also report them to the FCC. If anyone out there can track down a REAL address for them, please either make it known online or report them to the FBI or both.

Called on 2-11-2014 said his name was Jack and he was calling for Microsoft and that my computer was infected and would crash and shut down.
Tells me I have an open filed and my attorney must call right away or legal action will take place.
Caller with thick accent, very hard to understand. It is a SCAM wanting access to my supposedly infected computer. BEWARE!!
When someone calls from this number, we let the phone ring and we have no way of identifying the caller because it says "unavailable" on the caller ID box!I wish there was an effective way to prevent receiving "unknown" and "unavailable" calls!
Called twice...first time, no answer on other line. Second call was a male voice. I could not understand who he asked for, as his accent was hard to understand.
just got a call from this number.

Rec. many calls from this number but never answer them. Down with these annoying b*st*rds!
Called my cell phone. Didn't recognize the number. Didn't answer. No message left.
I just received a call from this number. Very Very upset. The woman had broken Indian english. Said I was granted money from the government for a medical procedure I had. She said she was from the medical department. I asked what medical department. She paused and said The Medical Department. I said so you are calling from the government. She said yes. I then asked her how she got my medical records. No real answer from her she just kept saying "Hello Mam" We are giving you money. And I kept at her about who and how and then I finally gave up because I was getting no where with her. For one the government would not call anyone to just give them money. And that little paper you sign at the doctors office that says your records are not to be disclosed to anyone must not mean anything. I did have a medical procedure done and this woman knew exactly what it was. I am very upset. I told her I didn't need the any money since I am very happy with the out come of my medical surgery. I was so mad I wish I would of hung on a little bit more to find out if I was suppose to send them money to get money.
Terrible indian accent, wants to "kjdhigsk" my computer, has called several times. Does anyone actually let some weirdo stranger get their computer access?
Call today from Northern Lights Pharmacy in Canada at this number. Hard to understand female who then put supervisor (Gary) on phone. He spoke perfect English. I told him I'd like to order an rx. Long time to find it, but said it was available in 18.6 mcg. I put him on hold for sev min then told him I need 30 mcg. He was delighted and said they have it. It's not available in that dosage. I hung up. Called me right back. I told him to put me on their do not call list. I've heard from them previously at a different number.
Another microsoft scammer demanding access to my computer. Called him a scamming crook and that I was well protected and he got mad. Told him to find another idiot for his lies and hung up. Do not grant him access to your computer.

This number just called I did not pick up due to the letter/number in the caller ID. I had an unavailable number try to call before this number. Before the unavailable number I had the california in caller ID. I have learned not to pick up. I am keeping a book and have an active log to turn to the D.A. to show once again the Do Not Call list isn't working and to show how we are being scammed.
HE REFUSED TO ANSWER.....

This name on caller id, Maurice Hougum (213)330-0187 calls several times a day. The area code says Los Angeles CA buisness Dist. everyone needs to start calling this # back several times during the 2am - 5am PST!! maybe they will get the hint!
Got a call from this person for the first time tonight, didn't recognize so I didn't answer and no message was left.
Was not home when call made. Left no message.
received a call from this person saying they were with the police and asking for money
Aoom Call. Caller says he is from MS and can issue e Free copy of Windows-8 if I give him remote control of my PC. SCAM ! Hung up. Just another Criminal with a PC !
Called claiming to be a MS AV tech saying my copy of windows was infected, humored them as I am running debian linux and walk through their steps in a Windows Virtual Machine. They directed me to download an executable and then remoted into the VM and began deleting windows system files and then downloaded numerous types of malware including the Zeus Banker trojan and Rogue AV. DO NOT TRUST THESE SCUM.
No message, nothing call a lot
Called and ask for my wife. When I told her she was not here, they wanted to know when would be a good time to call back. I asked to what did it concern and the male voice on the other end hung up. Get this call several times a day and do not appreciate it. Want it stopped now.
Just got a call from this number. I could hear strange yelling or loud talking in the background, but no one spoke back when I said hello.
I picked up the phone and then someone hung up. The caller ID said Hougum, Maurice, nothing about MCI Worldcom
He has called a few times, but my curiosity got the best of me. I answered it and he wanted to talk to my husband. When I asked in reference to what, he was wondering of we were still farming. We don't farm. We hung up.
called but left no message
CALLED MANY TIMES ASKING FOR GLADYS STEVENS. CALLED FROM MANY DIFFERENT NUMBERS, BACK TO BACK. I TOLD HIM HE HAD THE WRONG NUMBER AND HE CONTINUED TO CALL BACK.
Called and said i had just purchased a new computer and that it had a virus. No name or company or anything. Called him out on it and told him i don't even own a computer. He got mad and starting cursing.
this number shows maurice hougum on my caller id.
This number calls my house at all hours and holidays too! And when you call back no answer , not even a ring!

Broken english speaking male, couldn't understand the name of the company/organization he represented even after asking 3 times. He wanted to warn me about a new computer virus. He wanted me to go to my computer and he would walk me through a process to see if our computer had been affected. Because my husband is in the tech business I knew not to trust something like this.
Just another money making scam, not police in any way. Police Officers in my family put their lives at risk everyday, then some crook tries to collect off of real Police reputation. It's a damn shame!
Says they are soliciting fro Breast Cancer Association.. Bet you Breast Cancer Association doesn't get any money from them either.. Caller ID says California.. Who wants to donate in January ? They liars are 2 weeks late.. might have believed them in December but January>> puh leeze.. You can't think of anything more original then that then I will report you to FCC Report them here: http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm
Another scam. And they called at 8:55 PM on a Sunday night to boot. Caller ID said California.
I would love to get one, if not all of these scum bags in a Ultimate Cage fighting match and show them how i feel when they call a phone number that is registered with the National Do Not Call registry and to also show them how it feels to be woke up early in the morning or disturbed late at night, maybr then, they would leave poor souls like us alone ( i doubt it ) but it felt good to get that off my chest !!

These people are just stupid.
Truly a scam. A man answers and claims to be "Joe Valente" representing the NY Giants. Really now, if the NY Giants organization were actually calling people, you would think the called ID would state the same. Whoever is calling is not a legitimate company, because if they were, the company name would be shown on the caller ID.
i have written do not call registry so many times and they just keep coming up with new numbers . I also put them on my blocked phone call lists for all phones.. so much for that.. back to square one.
When I answer the call they hang up and it is starting to piss me off....It has happened about 5 times today.
