for me it was an indian accent. he clamed they were a tax rebate dept from NY and that my girlfriend would be receiving a $2000 tax rebate. to "confirm" my "relation" to her (which is not documented anywhere) and to receive the money, they were asking for MY bank information. they would not give me a phone # or website or anything. he kept saying do you wish to receive the $2000 sir? and saying he wouldn't be able to give me any information until he was able to "confirm" my bank info...total BS!!! i just hung up. People, don't fall for scams!

This is definitely a call center in India. They never take NO for an answer. Try to jerk them around and waste their time. Have fun with these guys. Tell them you need to put them on hold or maybe you can come up with something even better. Don't bother to call back. It is some form of VoIP and will not accept calls.

BYW, I have been reporting these guys to the FCC and the FTC for years, but nothing slows them up. "Your tax dollars at work"

I get phone calls daily from US Pharmacy. They are told repeatedly to remove me from their list to no avail. They all sound like East Indians.

This guy called to tell me he was from Global International something or other and that I had won 2.5 million dollars! I told him to bring it right over and I would give him a big hug and a kiss! This is the 3rd call I have gotten this week from someone promising me money, but when I tell them I won't give them any personal information until I see the cash, they tell me they are cancelling the check........ Oh well!

The 14 Sept. 07 call was from "Morris" then got called by Ebinex, a debt relief company in Valley Village, CA, who says American Communications sold them the lead. AC's website of course doesn't have an address as they don't want to make it too easy for my process server to find them! Got called 19 Sept 07 by Shaun from ICS Loans re mortgage, so this number is being used by telemarketers to funnel calls into the LA area. Any info on ICS Loans is appreciated!!

I recived a lot calls from this number, we don't know who is that person, when my son answer the phone they start asking for how many person live on the house,how much is the income, the names for the person on the house, the address were we live. When my son listen that question he cut the conversation but he don't answer nothing. When I came at home from my job he toll me about that phone number and said mom never answer for this phone number, that is a company stolen information from the person.

I just got a call that said Maximus and it turned out to be a relative from Armenia.

I have nothing to do with a marketing company or anything else. I was just wanted to find out why it said Maximus so I did a google search and ended up here.

Or... as some of you have experienced foreign accent callers, just politely ask them to teach you how to say a few phases of their languages. Be polite and creative, for example:

How do you say "please don't importune me early in the morning in _ _ _ .(fill the blank of their language)
Aaaaannoyed

I bet that Maximus is a local telecom number funneling telemarketing calls. Scary part of this call is that they have a database of your numbers and they targeted you specifically by asking semi-relevant questions. Unfortunately it is not just one company, but many. Not sure how to stop them. I guess that you just laugh it off, ignore it, and be happy. =)

Maximus is what shows. I never answer. The call goes to voicemail then the caller hangs up.

I got a call from this number saying the call was a survey and they wanted to know if I would like to join the US Army, but the guy sounded Arab so that freaked me out a little bit and I said I didn't wanted to answer but he was very persistent and keep asking and keep saying it was a survey... creepy!

I just called my wife from work and she said I came through as Maximus with the 213 number listed above. That's certainly not our company name or number so we're following up with our telecom provider, TSI, to find out why our correct caller ID did not display. We're located in Southern California.

Do not believe those comments that this call is from a relative overseas. Those comments are from the phisher so that you answer their calls. DO NOT ANSWER THEIR CALLS!!

this is super annoying. If we answer it's just th recording of an asian sounding man saying "hello, hello.." then hangs up. I called back and got the not accepting calls message. I won't answer anymore. I bet they are phishing to see if we're there to answer and start getting more solicitors calling.

This number calls each day and I remind them that we are on the do not call list. They ask for my husband and I say, "one moment" and then leave them on hold for as long as they are willing to wait. Today it took 48 minutes before they hung up.

Getting repeated calls from this number. Caller ID says "Maximus." There never seems to be anyone at the other end. One time got the creepy female robotic "goodbye" as someone previously reported. Calling the number back gets the "the number you are calling can not receive calls at this time."

Got call at one p.m. CID said "MAXIMUS." When I answered, nobody said anything. Finally a computerized female voice said "Goodbye." Very creepy. I called the number back and got a "number not accepting incoming calls." Sounds like call is originating from overseas and somehow bypassing the DNC list.

My wife was calling from her cell phone. She was overseas, and she saw a message "redirecting" but when I received it, it was showing "Maximus" and "213 337 0021".

Never call the number back if you don't pick up. That's how they harvest a "working" number. And you will be bombarded from the phone you call them back on. This is always some Phillipino sounding person pushing an online pharmacy, or drug store. they usually start with "would you like to renew your prescription" very annoying. They got my cell phone number and I am beyond annoyed. No matter how often I report this number on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY they seem to just keep calling!! Bah humbug!

Number showed & I answered as the call looked local. Indian-sounding guy knew my name, said he was from RX Pharmacy. Hung up on him -- just another Internet drug-pusher who calls from all kinds of numbers. Been gettting these calls for years. I never answer 800/866/877/888 calls anymore because I know it's them. The calls have tapered off but I bet there'll be a barrage now that I confirmed my number to these jokers.
