Found a way to make them stop calling. Bought a VERY high pitched, VERY loud whistle. As soon as they started in on their prescription scam, I blew it as loud and long as I could. Only took two calls and they have never called back after months of daily calls.
Male caller with heavy Indian or Middle Eastern accent, claiming to be from US Online Pharmacy, wanting to discuss my past transactions (of which there are none) and future business.
Got a call this morning from this number. Two minutes later got a call from an unknown number. Fortunately I did not answer. No message left. Tried to return call. The number does not receive phone calls.
Based on reading other messages here, be aware.
Called again. Wanted to confirm name/address/phone of the business. And still trying to confirm if our phone service is with Verizon. Wasn't happy that a supervisor or owner wasn't available.
Third call this month from this number. This time they dropped the call, though.
I think when people call using some online VoIP kind of srvices such as mediaring.com, this # shows up. So, the call may have been originating in any part of the world.
Another call, this one was "Bianca". Like before, confirmed the phone, address, etc. Then wanted to know if Verizon provided our phone service. She got very insistent and rude about needing to know if this number was a Verizon number or not and needing to talk to an owner, supervisor, etc. Given the other scams from this number that are listed, I think I figured out the angle. They get your business name/number/etc and phone provider, then bill for "services" through your phone bill. Otherwise known as Cramming. Most businesses probably wouldn't notice an extra $10 or $20 of charges on the line.
Guy with a strong accent called about our "Free Yellow Page Listing", wanted to confirm the business name, address, and phone (All on our web site, so big deal), but then wanted to talk to the office manager, or supervisor, or owner, someone besides me who he mistakenly thought he could sell something. Really doubt he works for a real "Yellow Pages".
i got a call but there was no response. this is the second time now.
"Nadine" called from "European Procurement" -- said she had clients that were interested in doing business with us. We messed with her and kept her on hold for a while. I had one of the guys in the office pick up the phone and jack with her some more. I love it when these scum bags call on a slow Friday! Keep up the good work WHOCALLED.US!!
If you get a call from (214) 446-0110, immediately contact your bank regarding possible unauthorized debit card charges and your credit card companies regarding possible unauthorized charges. The call we received was at 1:15 AM when we were groggy. The caller asked for my wife by name which I stupidly confirmed by passing the phone to her, but the caller then said that she had the wrong number and hung up. Over the next two days, five unauthorized charges to my debit card showed up on my bank account. A few days before I had used my debit card to pay for some pool parts that I had ordered on-line. I should have used Pay Pal as I suspect the pool parts vendor either sold my debit card number or misused it himself.
Early Warning Mar 20th, 2008
The caller from this number stated that he was from the IRS and told me that he was going to give me 2k as part of the gov rebate. He asked for my bank name routing # and checking account. Person was irate when mentioned that I was on the IRS website stating the warning from the IRS of his phone scam
Wanted to talk to several different people -- told her that they were travelling and would be glad to redirect her call to someone that could help her. She of course did not like that idea. She said she had clients in Europe that had given her these specific people to talk to regarding our services. She finally gave up when I explained that she was calling for people that hadn't been here in 3 years. I was left with a very curt "have a great afternoon."
This man said he had money to deposit to my sister accounts who is on SS. Sounded good to her in the beginning then it started to scare her. They gave a fictious account # and everything and they tried to access it and called right back they gave them a wrong number. I threaten to call the police on them and have them call my attorney . He did not want to talk to an attorney. I don't know how to make people aware of this, mostly for the ederly.
I received this call around 6PM. I couldn't understand a word the caller was saying. Caller did say something about a computer. Somebody said it was a collection agency. It must have been a wrong number, because I don't owe a penny to anybody. Bottom line, it's total scam. I too am on the DNC list. That is a total joke. I'm also turning in my cellphone, because I too, am tired of crap calls like this, and paying for text messages I don't know. I just went through credit card fraud, and I'm now fed up to my ears with scammers, cheaters and crooks.
twice, shortly before 10 pm, caller did not identify themselves, did not respond to "can I help you", did not hang up. I hung up when there was not response. voice sounded accented i.e. not native english speaker. Mar 05 2008
Got a call 2:09 pm. Didnt answer it. Tried calling back and they do not recieve calls. If it is that agency could someone start doing a denial of Service attack to their site amoungst other evil things to them. Figured it would be nice to pester the pesterers. Hell we should post them on Digg and see what awful things happens to them.
I am the CEO of 404 Business Solutions and I promise you that none of these calls have come from my support people. We have had some issues with the phone company and getting our number straight but please do not be upset with us. We have recently changed our number and hopefully this confusion will be addressed. Sorry about any inconvince.
you guys haven't figured it out yet? ahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahhahahahahahahhaaahahahahahahha
i really dont want to spoil anyone's fun but i feel for you guys so here goes
YOU ARE BEING PRANK CALLED! but not by some kidwith *67 at the beginnig of the phone number, but by some kid on a website anywhere in the world. for the sake of them though i will not tell you what the name of the website is ha
We are registered with the do not call list. This number called 3 times and harrassed me and my family. I reported them three times
This guy, Brian called my boss, but asked that I call him back, but gave himself another number: 809.966.6072, ext. 7. He said that he is with the pharmacy, and my doctor called in the prescription, and he wanted to verify my address so he could ship it. I asked what pharmacy he was with, and he said online pharmacy, which I let him know that I buy nothing pharmaceutical over the internet, told him this was a scam, and hung up on him. THis is a scam!
Stacy Rettmeier Nov 12th, 2007
They claimed to be the Social Security Department and said i had a tax rebate coming so they needed all of my bank information and so I politely told this Indian woman to mail a check and she told em to go to hell and hung up.
I get calls from 214-446-0110 and "out of area" with no number, but until yesterday I didn't know that they're from the same entity. The heavy-accented middle eastern man or African man with the exact same voice called from both places. I also get calls from a woman of either decent. Many times they hang up. I get repeated calls in rapid succession in the middle of the night or day. They come almost on a daily basis and we've had to turn our phones off. One time they actually left a message and it was someone offering me advice and counseling if my marriage was in trouble or if I'm having trouble with my kids. Yesterday they called and I'm yelling at them to stop calling me and he just implored that I listen to him and that he wanted to help me. I said, "I don't know you and I will not talk to you. Stop calling me." They called even more until I stopped answering the phone. Not answering their calls doesn't make them go away. They are piranha.
Got a call from this number 14 times in a roll within 15 mins, with weird numbers. Number came up as 502-525-1206
1, 525-120-61, 214-446-0110, Unknown,Unknown,Private, 525-120-61,502-525-1206
1,214-4460110, Private, 502-525-1206
received a call from this number at 5:10 this am. nothing but background noise. any attempt to call this number results in a message that the number is unavailable to receive calls.
Caller i.d. showed Out of Area and the 214-446-0110 number. I am so glad this site exists. I now know not to answer this phone number, that it is a scam.
Got a call from them today, a guy with a HEAVY asian accent tried to tell me that the govt was going to send me $500 a month for 6 months and a discount card for medical. All because I don't have a criminal background and pay my taxes faithfully.
Problem is, I'm a disabled Vet (the govt. already pays all my medical), and the IRS just accused me of non-payment of taxes (I had to hire a lawyer, and the case is still pending).
I started laughing and the guy asked me what was so funny, so I told him, and he said "So you no want the free govt. money?" I told him that he was a moron, and suggested a particular sexual act that he should really try to perform on himself.....hehe
Ever wonder where drug addicts, prison parolees, and newly released mental patients go? They become debt collectors....oh.....that's why they are BRAIN DEAD DIRTBAGS!
Says he worked for ING Direct. Doubt that he did. Very heavy accent. This Dr has been getting a lot of scam letters.
Dr Judy Taylor Oct 03rd, 2007
This number called twice. Once at 5:05am, then at 5:16 am. I answered the 2nd time and they said nothing. When I tried to call back, recording said this number was not accepting calls!
we have been getting two calls a day, at the same times, from this # and just hear several clicks and a hang up. This is getting annoying; I tried to call block the #, but call block won't allow it. Need to do some investigation and will contact the police department if necessary to put a stop to this.
Scammmers or debt collector scum? is there a difference?
have called consistently the past 3 days and then hang up. i live in the 214 area, so naturally answer thinking it is a cell number of someone local
This showed up on my caller ID when a Mr. Simon called. This number will not receive calls. Mr. Simon answered an ad my daughter placed for a pet and sent her a money order and wants her to deduct fees out and send the excess money back via Western Union. We're not falling for that scam.
I keep getting calls from this # on my cell! I don't answer for #'s I don't know. But they hang up and keep calling. My son finally answered it last night and a man asked for me, my son told him to stop calling. The man just kept asking if I was home (asking for me by name)wanting to know where I was. Asking where I was!!!!! HOW CAN I STOP THESE CALLS? I only use my cell for family now this is coming up? IF it is NCO how did they get my cell #?
Answered phone. When I said hello, they hung up.
They called and tried to tell me they were the US Government, and wanted to send $2500 to my bank account, but only if I gave them my info. What a load of crap
Received a call from this number, the woman I could not understand wanted me to call back about some money they wanted to give me. SCAM!!!
I got call from this number for the past one week. When I say Hello, the other side goes dead.
received a call from this # today - told heavily accented man I wasn't available...obviously not a friend or they would have recognized my voice
A friend of mine was calling me from nevada and this number came up. 2 other people report having received calls from people they know (one from canada, another from california) it must just be a relay number that this company also happens to use..
How did these SOBs get cell phone numbers anyway? They are supposed to be unlisted. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFO!
B. in Dallas Aug 02nd, 2007
Just got a call from this number (according to cell phone caller ID). They claimed to be a pharmacy trying to call a similar number (one digit off) and looking for someone with a generic name (Thompson, I beleive it was). After I informed them they had the wrong number, the heavily-accented man (sounded Indian)sounded like he was asking if I wanted the Cialis perscription. I hung up on him.
B. in Dallas Aug 02nd, 2007
This company has called several times saying they had a courier delivery position availble. No criminal check, background history, credit check, basically nothing to really indentify that you are you. They said the company would be expanding to Dallas,Tx and they needed people to set up the office as well as be the courier deliver. Some way this company knew I was in search of employment, knew my phone number and had me go to their website www.avsair.com to apply for a position as well as fill out a contract with them on the contract they wont you to send a w-4 2 forms of I.D. bank account info as well as provide your signature. The company wont give you a contact number they call you and company said after they received all the info and its confirmed they will then in return give me a 800 number for future contact. This is a SCAM please be aware they continue to call and they wont stop calling what do I do???????????
ugh they better not be those phentermine people! i am never ordering weight loss products online again...they give me hell..they call from 90633 too...
I got a call from this # and when I answered it was my son calling from California! He's 10 years old and staying with his Dad. He said he was calling from their home phone #. I have a feeling that this # is just a relay line.
I get frequent calls from the number and they just hang up. I tried to call back & get messages like "out of service' or "not receiving calls". I am also on the no-call list.
Got two calls from this number, which I didn't answer.
I told them the same thing last week and they called me AGAIN today. Where do I file a complaint?
CALL CAME FROM A MAN I HAD BEEN TALKING TO. ITS A SCAM, HE IS TRYING TO GET ME TO GET TANGLED UP IN HIS SCAM. LITTLE DOES HE KNOW THAT THE FRAUD DEPT AT MY BANK HAS THE MONEY HE HAD WIRED INTO MY ACCOUNT! HE IS SUPPOSE TO CALL ME AGAIN AT 2AM CENTRAL TIME. I HAVENT BEEN ANSWERING HIS CALLS. WE SHALL SEE WHAT HAPPENS!
i didnt pick up, but i called at night just got a recording
How about that, a collection agency trying to hide their identity...what SCUM! It is NCO hiding under the below so-called business.
404 Business Solutions
The above company is really disgusting! They have called my answering machine MANY times and never leave me a message....what do you want,? I'm not a mind reader! It doesn't matter anyway because I would NEVER do business with this UNPROFESSIONAL company!
Trying to hide their identity....they are so BRAINDEAD! How stupid do they think we are? What a bunch of LOSERS!
I got a call today from 214-446-0110. A woman that had a strong accent said because I pay my taxes and have no criminal history the social security admin. wanted to wire me $500. She said I would also get some discount cards and get up to 70% off doctor visits and meds, I just need to give her my bank account number, confirm my address, and phone number. I told her I didn't have a bank account, but I would get a family members acct. info. and call her back. The number she gave me to call her back was 800-420-9218
. I called it back just to see who would answer but it was disconnected.
Man with very heavy accent said my husband had won a $5,000 grant. I informed him that I was on the National Do Not Call list, and I would report him if he called again. He just kept responding with 'uh-huh', then hung up.
i recieved call from this no. 3 times and when i tried to call it says 'we r sorry the no. u r callng cannot recieve calls at this time' thts rubbish man
I received a call from this number followed by an unknown number. I was not in my office to answer the phone, but when I called it back it said the number was not taking calls at the moment.
Never Help a Debt
Collector Rob You!
NCO Group, Inc.; NCO Financial Systems, Inc.; and NCO Portfolio Management, Inc
One of the nation’s largest debt-collection firms will pay $1.5 million to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that it violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) by reporting inaccurate information about consumer accounts to credit bureaus. The civil penalty against Pennsylvania-based NCO Group, Inc. is the largest civil penalty ever obtained in a FCRA case.
Continued from above.....
Jason Platts says his family can't thank Western New York enough for their help and calls the night an Amber Alert was issued when his child was kidnapped.
The case began at 7:45 Monday evening, Serenity's mother says a grandmother was watching the four-year-old girl in the family's home on Tremont Street when a former family friend, David Grover, came into the house to use the bathroom. When the grandmother returned to the room, she says both Serenity and Grover had disappeared.
Police launched a massive search, even issuing an Amber Alert to try to find David Grover and Serenity Platts. Around 12:15am Tuesday a car pulled up and dropped the girl off at her house.
A short time later Grover was taken into custody by police on Niagara Falls Boulevard in Amherst.
Is this an NCO Collector?
Bail Reduced For Kidnapping Suspect

It was $200,000 but now, bail for David Grover is $20,000. He's the man charged with kidnapping a four year old North Tonawanda girl earlier this week.
2 On Your Side has obtained a copy of David Grover's statement to police. In it, he details why he went to the child's home and how she ended up in his car for four hours.
Grover has been arraigned in North Tonawanda on charges related to the Monday night abduction of four year old Serenity Platts. Judge William Lewis set bail at $200,000.
The little girl was taken from her home shorlty before 8:00 pm and dropped off nearly four hours later. Authorities say there was no sign that the child was physically abused. Still, no motive for the kidnapping has been released.
These people call about 15 times everyday. They leave short ugly messages. One this evening was more like a threat out of a Horror Movie. These guys are sick and perverted, they really should get a new act.
The tactics used are old and boring, maybe a cleaning job at the zoo would better suit their intellect. DO NOT give these people ANY of your information, and DO NOT allow them to shock you!
NEVER GIVE A DEBT COLLECTOR YOUR BANKING OR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION. MAKE THEM VALIDATE THEIR CLAIMS.
NCO is so bad, that in 2003, they have been sued 40 times for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). These suits are usually filed when consumers are abused in violation of state and federal debt collection laws.
NCO is a money-mill, gobbling up competitors, buying portfolios of old debts for pennies, and expanding globally. These money-beggars are making their bottom-line profits at the expense and abuse of consumers.
One wonders how many lawsuits are NOT being filed because consumers do not know their rights or that NCO CAN be held accountable for their illegal debt collection practices.
ONE OF AMERICA'S WORST COLLECTION AGENCYS!
Do not let NCO's under-trained, uneducated and FDCPA lacking debt-collectors make a paycheck at your expense.

Received a call from this number. Claims to have a refund from a bank for me.
Refused to give info or talk to him. Can't someone stop these scam artists? who should we report them to?
everyone please call the state attorney general and report these illegal tactics.

Is calling my number on a daily basis and I have even acted like I was Cingular Wireless (the company) to get them to stop calling. Nothing is working so far. Filing complaint today.
I get phone calls during night time but this wirdo only whistles. Try calling him back and I get answering machine and this # doesn't work!
no message...was not home at the time.
Had a missed call from this number...tried to call it back, and I got a recording saying "we're sorry, the number you are calling cannot receive calls at this time. Then a human says "D2"...weird
CrisseyMrs Feb 15th, 2007
selling dope. wow cold calling.
2 calls within 10 minutes. 1st one showed 214-446-0110, 2nd showed unknown, from the same company. Informed them both times that I am on the national DNC list and I do not appreciate solicitors calling my cell phone. All I could get out of heavy accented people was ---- XDF (company name) and they wanted to send me a bottle of something. Sounds like a scam to me
NCO Finanical-Debt Collector. They also have called me using 866-287-2543
and my local area code 214-446-0110
. They are calling my cell phone. It is always a recorded message asking me to call another number.
This number is NCO Financial, a debt collector. They also use the numbers 214-446-0110
. If you stay on the line long enough, you will probably hear a recorded message.
This number belongs to a debt collection agency. They also call from 866-287-2543
. Look up this number to read more comments about this agency.
They call our office, say nothing- yet they keep calling.
I work in Dallas, so I answer. This is just another scam company using a bogus number for caller ID. Reporting them to the FTC or telling them you are on the 'Do Not Call List' means nothing. The DNC list doesn't exist in Habib-ville!!
THIS NUMBER CAME UP WHEN A FRIEND CALLED FROM CANADA.
SOME INTERNATIONAL CALLS COME UP WITH THIS PHONE NUMBER ASSIGNED TO THE NETWORK SWITCH CONTROLLED BY THE PHONE COMPANY.
The call was from NCO finacial. This is a debt collection agency.
Got a call, didn't answer it. I'll know not to in the future thanks to this site. Thank you.
Jill Davis Nov 16th, 2006

I got this call at 5:30 in the morning!!!! When I answered, no one was there. I tried calling it back, and got a recording that the phone could not accept calls at this time. I called later this evening, and got the same message. They called my cell phone!
Called twice and would not identify themselves. I tried calling back and received a recording that the number could not accept calls at this time.
Some called said the goverment wanted to give me a $10,000 Grant that I did not have to pay back.Wanted my Bank Info so they could deposit the check.
I was just called from this number by a heavily accented man. He claimed he was from some verification department and needed to verify information so that the government could send me a $500 tax refund. Some kind of award for filing my taxes on time. I verified my phone number since he already knew it. He also already knew my name and address. Then he tried to get my birthdate and I declined to give it. He kept saying I would only get the $500 if I cooperated with him. Anyway, during the entire call I kept asking how I would know that he is really from the government. He kept saying he was from a department. (Department of what I don't know). I didn't cooperate so I'm not holding my breath for a tax refund. haha
Dianna DeCicco Oct 14th, 2006
Got my third call from this company called "RX Pharmacy". Told the heavily accented voice that I was on the national "do not call" list, and that they should never call me again. We'll see how long this lasts!! This call originated in DALLAS (214 area code) so I naturally answered it, as I live in the next county! jeeez!! These people are rediculous! I'm also filing a complaint with the "do not call" folks.
