Called Claremore, OK at 8:15 am CST on 2 Feb 2011. No message left.
After reading the message below from Cliff..I checked my phone and had the blocked numbers feature. I blocked
215-383-5551 and H272 that calls every morning. I would have never known I had this feature.
Thanks for your help.
I'm sorry it was The Rock that had that message..
For as little as $19.99 you can purchase a phone that will allow you to block upto 30 phone numbers and ALL calls that do not have a number, e.g. Out of Area, Florida Call, Restricted, etc. Basically as you receive calls from these numbers you add them to the call block. The next time they call the phone will ring once, make the connection and immediately return a busy signal. The 'Scammer' gets hit with a connection fee and doesn't ever get to talk to anyone. I purchased a Panasonic KX-TGA641 four phone set with answering machine for $75.00. Best money I've spent this year. There are many other brands that offer the call blocking feature.
They called today & disconnected as soon as I answered. Looking to see who's at home/ if anyone is at home at this hour? Maybe casing the neighborhood? hmm...
Number called - left no message.
To the person who suggested blasting an airhorn (or blowing a whistle) - I understand the urge. But whether we like it or not - understand that the person calling you - is only doing their job. They aren't intending to irritate you. It may be unsolicited, it may be irritating...but chances are the person calling you is just trying to earn a paycheck. If it is a known scam - that is different.
This same number calls from time to time. When will they give up?
Soliciting for breast cancer. Told them it surely is a noble cause, and that we in fact had something in common. I am soliciting funds for the hungry and if they would be so inclined to make a donation to my cause I could reciprocate in kind. I asked them for some personal information and I was tenacious, wouldn't take no for an answer....lol....they got frustrated and hung up....Oh yeah!!! turn it around on the annoying bast****. I actually get a great kick out of this. Try talking to them in a made up foreign language...that's fun too!!! Don't get mad...get even!!!
Some nut filled POS from this number has crank called me many many times.
No one answered when I answered the phone. Caller ID says PS24 July 6, 2010
Called late afternoon. An automated message said I should hold for transfer to the next agent. I quickly disconnected.
did not answer and they did not leave msg on my answering machine
Just for fun, if you are working or living in an environment that you could do this in, answer the phone whenever a suspected telemarketer is on the line. If you hear a real human voice and they start their shpeel, hold a gas charged air-horn to the phone & blast them for a second or two! You can get them from amazon.com for as little as $7.00 for the 1.4oz can or under $30.00 for the 8oz which will last a very long time if used in short bursts. Refill 8oz cans are about $16.00. Free Shipping often available on orders over $25.00!
Even if it's a recording, wait and see if a human takes over the call or if there is an option for them to start recording you, then blast them!
Don't get mad, GET REVENGE!
GET REVENGE Jun 25th, 2010
Called back late at nite, lady answered, said she did not call me...told her website ID'd the number as a scammer number..she hung up. Somebody in PA tell the District Attorney...do us all a favor. GD worthless people have to misrepresent and steal.
Just hung up when I answered the phone. Maybe if you say "Hello" with some kind of intelligence they leave you alone.
Answered phone with a message to hold on, then a person gets on the phone and says my name and I said that is not me WHO IS CALLING? They said they would call back later and said this was a COURTESY CALL and hung up.
Call came from Phidlphzn1 (Peerless Network of Pennylvania) Pennsylvania to Kansas at 12:00 CDT on 5-13-10. Call not answered and no message left.Other sites advise that the pitch is for breast cancer.
Automated message - "Hello, please stand by for the next available representative." or something similar.
Call on 5/12. 9:52a.m. MDT. No message. ID: PS24.
I consider this rude.
They call at least several times a week. I actually answered this time, and it's this lady that says about how a woman
dies ever 12 minutes from Breast Cancer and she uses 'God' and 'Bless you' in her conversation alot and asked to mail
me a donation form. I let them do it. Then they switch me over to a 'mail confirmation department' and it's a guy
who reads your address back to you to confirm it's right. I'm not going to donate to them, but will thrown it away. If I want to donate to this cause, I will go looking for the proper foundations, never donate to some telemarketer/possible scammers
asking for money over the phone!
They hung up when I answered.
Breast cancer solicitation. Did not answer. I let my fax machine pick it up.
Left no message - we don't answer if we don't know
Collecting for breast cancer. I donate locally and direct. **NEVER** on the phone. Telemarketers list themselves as charity and therefore don't have to abide by DoNotCall laws. They keep roughly 80% of the money and pass maybe 20% or so along to the actual charity. Charities allow it because the measley 20% or so is still free money to them. Only way to stop it is NOT to DONATE to ANY caller. These kind of telemarketers took advantage of my elderly mother during her battle with alzhiemers because she was so eager to send them money thinking she was helping someone. Telemarketers were calling her several times a day like vultures.
Called the house when not home scumbags didn't even leave a message if they call again I will give them a piece of my mind tired of these F*$#&n Telemarketers I work hard for what I have and people like this have to bother you and take your hard earned cash for some time of BS.
Called today while we were out, did not leave message but from the 24 comments below it is someone looking for money and we will not give anyone anything over the phone. this is the first time we have heard from this number and if they call again we will block the number.

Said they were Community Action ? Calling for breast cancer,
I asked to be placed on the do not call list, and she hung up on me before I could get it all out.
Called today to solicit funds for the Breast Cancer Fund. Told the person that I do not give funds over the telephone and my number is registered with the "Do Not Call" List. She hung up.
