I started receiving calls on my cell phone from (213) 550-3033. I read all the reports on the internet about this number, so I didn’t answer it. I have only recently started receiving unknown calls on my cell the last 3 weeks, which makes me believe my phone number got onto some scam artist list. I am posting the other telephone numbers below in case there is some connection with these numbers and maybe some of you have been receiving calls from these as well:
Government Grant Scam
PayDay Cash Loan Scam
Lower Credit Card Interest Scam
(213) 550-3033 Free Boat Cruise Trip/Survey Scam
Hope this helps!
Phred, get clued. The DNC list is not ineffective. Legitimate telemarketers obey it and do not call you. It's cut down on our daily calls by at least 75%. But criminals do not care about laws. When have they ever? Would you say that laws against bank robbery are ineffective because criminals still rob banks? Laws do not prevent anything and never have. They just provide a remedy for when those laws are violated. Just assume any telemarketer who is calling you now is a crook and proceed accordingly.
This number is almost exactly the same as another scam number, 213-550-3070
. As many other people have posted within the last several days, the suspicion is growing that the DNC list is ineffective. The only action that apparently will produce results is to keep posting complaints to the FCC. From now on, unless I see an ID I recognize, I will not answer any phone calls whatsoever.
The voice message left was the following: This is John from Political Opinions of America, you will receive a 2 day cruise to the Bahamas for completing the survey. Gratuity and port fees not included. Etc.
rang twice but no one there when answered

dirtbags....just dirtbags. Obama people. Dirtbags.
Didn't answer and they didn't leave a message. I called the number back & got a recorded message that they were trying to take a political survey.
I Missed the call and there was a 4 second message of silence in my voicemail. The call came in around 9:30 AM EST.
I called the number and a recording came on saying they wanted me for a survey.

I didn't answer, and they left no message
They called my cell phone twice in the last 2 days. Each call costs me money. It is for a political survey.
This number showed on my cell today at 1:30pm Central. I didn't answer, and they left no message.
Didn't answer. No name shown or message left. I've been getting a lot of these calls on my cell phone lately - from different numbers.
I missed the call, and no message was left. No name appeared, either.
A TOTALLY BOGUS call asking us do a "political survey" (gets around the DO NOT CALL law???), but then offering "an ALL EXPENSES PAID cruise for two to the Bahamas" if we'd participate?!!! These guys are CRIMINALS, plain and simple. Trying to do a sales pitch during a political season and calling it a political survey. FAIL.
they called my cell and I didn't answer. I called the number from a blocked landline. it's some kind of survey.
Called but hang up. No name. no msg
No ID, no message. Call came from Los Angeles, CA.
