live caller (not a robo call) left msg at 1050AM May 15 regarding medical equip that is paid for plus shipping paid - that they want to ship to me. I called back the 216-264-2754 # on my caller ID - no company name only a foreign man responded - told him to remove my number from their system. Telephone 216 area code is Cleveland, OH area. Claimed they would remove.
The caller said his name was John and he was calling about the delivery of our medical equipment. I told him we didn't order any but the a-hole insisted on the delivery. So, I hung up. It's obviously a scam.
Answered the phone...the caller did not say anything and after ~ 5 seconds hung up on me.
Chicago appears on Caller ID, but the area code is Cleveland, Ohio. No message left! If it is regarding a medical alert system as John mentioned, they have tried by with various caller ID's. It also comes through as an Ohio call. We receive these calls frequently and the recording makes you think someone has ordered this system for you which makes it a free gift with free shipping. The caller wants to set up a time for delivery! Others have told me there is a monthly charge once it is installed!! BEWARE!!!
Call came in as "Chicago" and said I had been gifted a medical alert system - ironic - my sister got the same call - has to be bogus.
I thought that it was a live call as well, I just hung up on them. It all sounded really sketchy to me.
Lengthy recorded message delivered as if a live call from some shipping department for a medical alert system - seemingly checking on delivery of a paid for system - obvious scam
