I want to disconect my credit card
 Aug 27th, 2012
Collect call recording is weird, instead of getting a name it sounds like someone shaking a pill bottle and of course I did not accept. I have been stalked by a former friend for well over a year and had to file a No stalking/ No contact order on this woman. Her name is Amy Suzanne Reece, her live ins name is Roberto Roman Webber. They live at 3232 Reece Road, Boonville, NC 27011 and their phone # is 336-486-7846

Collect call recording said callers name was Jamie Elston. Don't know anyone by that name. I assume this was some type of scam and let voice mail pick it up.

Computer call & hung up when I answered.

Got a collect call from a relative at the Metro Link Station in Van Nuys Ca. I wondered why the area code showed 214 which is not for this area. Upon looking this phone # up (214) 969-5489, I saw that it is a Dallas Texas location. Why would a collect call for in State Comm. (Calling from Van Nuys, CA. to my house, also in Ca. be re-routed to Texas!!
Most likely so they can charge the hell out of that call. I dread seeing my phone bill!! What the hell happened with calling collect from a payphone and that being billed to the recipients phone by their company?
After reading these comments about that scandalous re-routed phone company ILD Comm.- I called the phone # and got a recording about some bullshit with 3 options to Direct Sat TV (whatever the hell that is??)and different Dallas Texas locations.
So much for these shitty payphone collect calls and who handles them now.

 Sep 17th, 2011
They called my home at 11:30 pm, I am eager to find out who this is.
 Sep 16th, 2011
All payphones are routed through this number and since i know that i can call your house and make it look like any number then what i say is this. Tell who ever is in your family as secret code to say instead of their name. If you get a collect call and the code word is said acept charges someone you know is in need of you or instead get them to say number on payphone instead of name then call bacjk

Friend of mine calls from this number.
 Nov 24th, 2010
Collect calls. the first call I picked up, the recording of the person's name who was making the call was inaudible. I hung up. They called back about 15 minutes later, I did not pick up. No message left.
 Nov 24th, 2010
This collect call has cost me 5.06, 5.00, 20.14 and today 29.00, I don't understand what cost so much, but I have reported this # and agency to the fIC for investiagtion. Redicious, this collect call business is a money scam.
 Nov 12th, 2010
Didnt answer, just weird, i have family in Dallas, Tx and I really didnt wanna talk to them. lol Sounds bad but just in case it was them, I didnt answer. But I sure will the next time.
 Nov 12th, 2010
I answer the phone, because not sure who calling, it a scham, not good business. stop call my home. will be reported.
 Nov 10th, 2010
Pay phone in NOLA for me, and it was my husband. I only searched it because I missed the call and used to live in Dallas. So- it's a generic pay phone company number.
 Nov 08th, 2010
Just got a call from this number and didnt answer it. Checked my voicemail and it was my boyfriend who has left his phone at home. Im guessing he was using a payphone. So if you get this call, it very well could be someone you know.
 Oct 15th, 2010
Three calls in the middle of the night. Called id showing as ILD Comm with the telephone number 214-969-5489. I have not answered the calls. Answering equiptment indicates it is a collect call.

Called 10 times within 30 minutes. Left no call back number or who to contact to stop calls. Same annoying call over and over again.
 Sep 15th, 2010
I believe this is some sort of scan. I got a call like this twice today within a matter of minutes. It tells me that ... (no name mentioned) is trying to call me collect, but my phone does not except charges or collect phone calls, so it asks me for a credit or debit card number. it gave me an option to block the calls, so i did.
 Sep 11th, 2010
I received a call from an automated voice requesting I accept reverse charges for a number on my caller ID 214-969-5489. This happened 4 or 5 times before it stopped.
 Aug 03rd, 2010
A friend of mine said they were calling me from a payphone in Elmhurst, NY I guess it has a 214 area code because it's Southern Bell company headquartered in Dallas, Texas.

After receiving two calls this week in the middle of the night from ILD COMM (214) 969-5489 I decided to check into it. I called the FCC. Here is the deal. This is a scam company probably calling through the internet. If you receive an unwanted call, you should call your phone provider to see if they can block that particular number from calling you. Next, you should call the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877-382-4357 to report it. If you have been fraudulently charged anything, call the FCC as well at 1-888-225-5322. Apparently the FCC can't do anything unless you have been charged. No matter what, do not give you credit card info to these people.
 Jul 29th, 2010
I received several calls this evening curious, I got online to see where this number had come from, being there were three calls that came in one right after another. I then mentioned the calls to my husband, he too had received three calls, after checking the times the calls came in they were one minute apart. I then called our phone carrier, they had no record of the incoming calls, being they weren't answered. Just out of curiosity... I'm a Verizon user.
 Jul 29th, 2010
ILD Communications is headquartered in tx, but they do not offer collect calling service. That is a scam!
fact 3
 Jul 23rd, 2010
Its a calling card number for telephone vendors. Plus if youre getting threatened, be afraid its an ex. If its from jail or correctional or mental inst. Its just a card used for vendors for phone supplied through those facilities. Sure it could be a random jailer who wants to talk but it could also be a family member in trouble, (but probably not) Also, they're using phone cards to collect information and cc #'s so be carefulto steal your identity, and money.
Fact 2
 Jul 23rd, 2010
Its a calling card company. People don't realize you dont see the number where theyre calling from, recievers only see the company number which is ILD Communications, a phone card distributer vendor.
 Jul 23rd, 2010
I also receive an call from this number and when u call it back it is either busy or no answer, so please do not fall for the con!!!! Dont know who these people are but they are good so just let go and pray that their asses get caught soon!!!
 Jul 11th, 2010
Girls, sorry to burst your bubble, but this is a common number that many men/women use to cheat on their husbands, wives, whatever..... it's discreet and can't let you call back so... sorry ladies.
 Jul 10th, 2010

Supposedly my husband's voice calling Collect from this number...on 06/05/10 to my cell phone @ 1430.
 Jun 06th, 2010
Its a collect call type agency. My brother in law called me from it. They use it in places like half way houses or prisons. He called from a halfway house. Had the same type of system when he was in jail. You have to give them a credit/debit card for the call to be put through. Rates may vary, but I had to pay $2 for 10min.

Just got a call from this number...they said my Dad (they knew his name) was making a collect call to my cell and my cell was not authorized to receive collect calls. Said they needed a credit card to put the call though, but I was free to refuse to accept the call if I wanted. After I had them verify my dad's name once, more, I gave them my card number. Then I called my dad right away (he was out of the house at this time) and he said he never called. So I called my credit card and canceled the account..but they had already charged $5.00 to it,

then they called back and i didn't answer, and they called again, this time saying it was my finace on the line. i told them i knew they were a scam and that i was reporting far have not heard back..

In Illinois,primarily Cook County, ILD Communications (rather than AT&T) picks up the Switching for collect calls made from Police Lockups, Court Buildings, Department of Corrections, and County Jails. So if You're in Cook County, more than likely someone is trying to reach you from Jail.

SCAM!!! 214 969 5489 Called a 3rd time in 10 minutes. First time I didn't answer, second time operater said it was a collect call from unrecognizable name but couldn't be billed to phone so asked for a debit or credit card number, 3rd call came and a recording said she had a collect call from "MY DAD'S REAL FIRST AND LAST NAME"!!! and press one for credit card and two for billing to home address. I'd read alot of these comments since second call so I pressed option 2, bill to my house. A lady came on and said operator would be calling me immediately. 4th call came from a local number 562-630-9449 and when answered a recording said 17dollars and change something or other collect call but now from a different name. Hung up. I called my dad, his cell is off. He's in a meeting, I saw and spoke with him before he left. SCAM! Be carefull.
 Nov 03rd, 2009
Call from 214-989-5489 Said she had a collect call from (I couldn't understand, of course) and needed my credit card number to put it through. Scam I'm sure. Trying to get CC numbers. Jerks!

These people call with the recording that someone is trying to make a collect call to my number but when it comes time to state the name of the person who is making the collect call, they cough or make noises.

This is one of many payphones, usually from prisons or other such places. Don't trip.
 Sep 17th, 2009
I got a call from 214-969-5489 and when I answered the phone no one answered. It was really weird!
 Sep 14th, 2009
With the wide variety of call types listed here, it seems like this is a communication company that routes calls through a central number - like a pbx, mabye, that someone else here mentioned. A family member just called me from a pay phone in MT. I did not answer the call because I did not recognize the number, but when he started leaving a message I realized it was him. I'm guessing that smaller communications companies also contract with this company for services. With this centralized number displaying on our phones, we can see by all the messages here that there are many devious, unscrupulous people that will take advantage of our not being able to track back to them. It could be anyone calling from any pay phone that uses this company.
 Aug 13th, 2009
i never answered but they attempted to call 4 times within 5 minutes. persistent little bastards
 Aug 05th, 2009
Bitch what's up
 Aug 03rd, 2009
A man from this number called me probably about a half an hour ago and was asking for "Linda." I told him that he had the wrong number, and he said that I have a "cute voice" and asked if I was married. I'm worried now. Ergh.
 Jul 28th, 2009
I get a woman who has called no less than twenty times and claims that Dawn Figman is bleeding from her face and if I don't giver her the prosecuter who prosecuted the crimes against Nick Berg, then more anti-semetic violence from the fire department will happen. I know this is a payphone that the call originates from and it comes through this number, as if it is a pbx. If you want to listen to this lady's message you can go to: after July 1, 2009

My boyfriend, who is a truck driver, called me to tell me he received some time of citation and that he needed to pay it last night or this morning in order to be able to continue driving his truck. I tranferred money to his bank and later around 1pm he called again to thank me for the money. He mentioned he was doing ok. He stated he was in Montana. The caller id listed "TX, 214-969-5489." Something is not right. I keep calling this number and it sounds busy all the time. His cell goes right into vm. He could very well be in jail but he won't 'fess up to it. If anyone has any new info. please post it.

Does anyone know if this is a correctional facility. My ex stayed in trouble and this number showed up twice on my cell and once on my landline tonight?
 Jun 16th, 2009
Keep getting collect calls from this number, from a variation of funeral homes. "Negro-fied Funeral Home", "Hell's Paradise Funeral Home", etc but with the same old man voice.

It's usually busy but sometimes it rings and no one answers. The phone company (AT&T) refuses to block it!!

This has been going on for 5 days and we've had calls at all hours. Probably about 12 calls now total.
 Jun 16th, 2009
Is this a calling card or a landline? DOes anyone know where this number is?
 Jun 07th, 2009
They called saying it was the detention center or something, and they were recording the message
