called my business the past few days. I called them back and I got an automated message saying that you have reached Mobile 1 (or Nobile 1, kinda hard to understand). It says they are an outbound service center and if you want to contact someone please call their direct line at 301-361-1111. I called, they say they are a private marketing firm for Verizon and AT&T, i asked to be removed from their list, she said she did it but i guess we will see. She was a REALLLLLL bitch though, sounded like a straight hoodrat. I guess that make sense though if you have ever worked at a call center before.

These people call again and again - there is never anyone there except that you can hear something then they hang up. It is frustrating to get all these crank calls. Looking around it seems that they are "customer loyalty" specialists for bellsouth/ATT of course the effect is opposite.

I have a long annoying message complete with muzac on the phone that spammers get forwarded to. It has cut down on many of these calls. It was worth the 15.00 per month just to share the love with them. They also hate to be put on hold. Too bad we can't call them at home.

this # has called me numerous times showing NOVO1 or unavailable on caller ID and stating they were bellsouth/att and my term agreement has expired, and they wanted to renew contract to secure 25% discount - tell them to fax me a written contract showing this before i can accept - fax never come.

They called and called and called and called. I finally answered their call and put the caller on speakerphone and let him pitch and pitch and pitch and pitch. All I told him was "NO" to every sales pitch he made. He stayed on the line for a good 30 minutes while I told him "NO" over and over and over and over. (Hey..I had time to kill and it was fun turning the tables and frustrating the hell out of him!)

Answered phone and they hung up. I'm a Bellsouth customer so this doesn't qualify for the "donotcall.gov" list. They're not doing illegal FTC activity if you're a Verizon or Bellsouth customer. Unethical? Maybe. But not illegal. Here's more information for those interested:

I used to work for Novo 1 (formerly known as ProtoCall Communications). They are telemarketing company based out of Laurel, MD. Usually they're calling about Verizon, Comcast, or Bell South to offer/market various products and promotions for existing/former/new customers.

This number just called my place of business and asked for the person in charge of the phone (they actually asked for me by name). I asked who was calling and what for, and they told me they were calling from Verizon, even though the caller ID says NOVO 1. So, I told them I wasn't in, oops. Apparently they are a telemarketing place that calls for various phone companies.

This is a outbound telemarketing firm for BellSouth. They called on 2/21/07 at 11:10 AM. When I answered they hung up. Looked up NOVO1 on google I found a company out of Laurel, MD. I am already on the DNC list and they still called. This is the website that I found http://www.novo1.com/

I've been getting calls most every day for about 3 weeks. Every time I answer the phone, they hang up. I called the 301-361-1111 number and asked them to remove my number from their list. I also filed a complaint with the Do Not Call Registry. I guess we'll see what happens...

NOVO 1 calls 5-7 times a day. I 'googled' NOVO 1 and called them. They told me they would take me off the calling list. http://www.novo1.com/ is their website. you can call them at 877-810-7171. not sure if this will work or not.

This number called and the guy said he was Verizon and wanted to add DSL service. I then asked directly, "Are you a Verizon employee?" and he said yes. So then I asked, "Why is it then that you do not know that I already have Verizon DSL?" He said that that din't show on the records he had - blah blah - then said to have a nice day. I then called Verizon and froze my account from being changed by ANYONE but me directly. I recommend everyone do that to thwart these lying rip off artists.

NOVA is a fly-by-night illegal telemarketing ring run by Gregory Schwartz, 528 15th St., Phil., PA. If you are receiving calls from NOVA you will likely never be removed from their list as they do not honor DNC requests. Your best bet is to call Mr. Schwartz at home 215-732-7079 and 215-735-5079 and 215-735-8588

Novo 1 has called me on several occasions and hung up after they got my machine. I answered the call today and he advised that he was calling from Bellsouth Central and needed to varify my telephone information. I hung up and called Bellsouth and they advised that Novo 1 is a vendor for Bellsouth but they should not be telling anyone that they are from Bellsouth Central and they would have my business number removed from the vendors list.

Caller ID "NOVO 240-294-1590;" have called up to 3 times per day in the last 2-3 weeks. Picked up today, but did not speak. Voice on other end asked "Hello...Mr. (my last name?" When I did not respond, hung up. They know who they are calling.

Called 2 times tonight. Caller ID read NOVO 1 but I didn't answer. After reading entries on this site I will now answer cause I know it is a telemarketing call and I want my TeleZapper phone to get my number off their list. My number is on the national and state DNC lists. Since the lists started taking effect, telemarketing calls dropped from about 20 a day to rare as in tonight. TeleZapper seems to take care of these stray calls but only if we briefly answer the call first.

This is a 2nd call in the past 15 min I got asking to speaking to the person in charge of the phoneline. When I ask who it is they said it they are calling on behalf of Verizon which I am very sure it is a lie.
Phil
 Oct 27th, 2006
I had three calls in the past 30 mins, and this is the 3rd call all with different numbers that appear on the caller ID. They called asking for the person in charge of the phoneline and when I ask who it was calling and for what reason, the person on the phone kept repeating the same question if I am the person in charge of the phoneline instead of answering my question. Since I happens to be looking at this site when they call. I then asked if it was a sales call and she said yes. Told her to take me off the list.
What is frustrating is that my number is already on the DO NOT CALL list and I am still getting sales call.
Anyway, after I hang up I called the number back and it machine said that the # is an outbound call center and to call 301-361-1111. so I tired calling it and the person who pick-up the line said Nova One.
