Rec'd junk marketing ph call from 248-693-0488, and this time I was ready, and in the mood to go on a full attack, as I recognized these dirt bags.

Some stupid Pakinstani-sounding moron answered. Now listen up stupid. Never ever call here again! Got it stupid! Shut up and listen! I want to make this real clear to foreigners like you. We can't stand your ilk -- do not call here ever again. If I were there, I would shoot you. Got it? Remove us from your junk call list. And then hung up!

Incidentally where are all the stupid people who believe in junk science, the global warming crowd, the no-drill anywhere crowd, the invested in complete surrender-and-defeat appeasement crowd to help avert us from a torrential rain of useless morons that call here? Here's a good place to put all those Marxist lefties from Bezerkly, CA to be productive, and become useful.

Maybe the worthless Obama supporters could call relentlessly back to that number of 248-693-0488, and we could "only hope for a change".

Rec'd yet another junk marketing ph call from 248-693-0488. This time did not answer. These jerks deluge us with stupid calls, and if we do answer with a "hello" - they hang up. This time I looked closely at caller ID, instead of just grabbing and answering the phone.

Rec'd junk marketing ph call from 248-693-0488, hello - silence, and then they hung up. Unforunately, we didn't look at the caller ID that closely, as these idiots are the same people that deluge us with phone calls, most times we don't even answer. - [2:04 pm, 10 secs.]

they keep calling almost daily.......usually no one there but sometimes someone comes on the line and they want to 'update our listing'. I've told them over & over to remove our name/number & stop calling and we don't want their listing. Doesn't help. It's sooooo frustrating!!!!

Apparently they are working VA now. I just received a call from a woman with a heavy Indian accent. She said she was verifying my company information for some "yellow pages" could have said Global but here accent was hard to understand. She went through everything name, address and then told me she needed to send me to a verifier. I have been in this situation before with some company called Liberty Online Services in 2002.I was ignorant to the scam of charging my phone bill for the "free" internet service I never accessed so this time I just hung up on the woman. She called right back and I let the call go to voice mail. She didn't leave a message but after that I received a call from 644-5874 with no area code and the caller ID said Intl Gateway. It was the same woman so I hung up and they called back twice more from 644-5875 & 644-5876. Of course when I called that number back I could not be connected. My advice is to just Hang UP! Don't give anyone who call you, any personal infomation! Hang UP!

Called repeatedly but left no message. I have a company and, based on the otehr reports here, I now know what they want. I never answer because the number is unfamiliar and never leave message. Let them call until they get tired.

This is no company and when you call back they say this number is disconnected. They said there was a free ad with no payment ever and they asked my employees date if birth and name. As there is a ton of information about this scam online, I would think our government would be all over this, but alas....it looks like these people are allowed to scam. I found a customer service number online from another site and they would not give any other information about the company. If you seqarch the phone number it comes up as connected top Lake Orion, MI. When you call 411 and ask for Global Yellow Pages in Lake Orion, MI....it does not exist.
Legal action must be taken to find this scam artist and identity thief immediately. How long is this informsation going to exist online without our government tracing it to the perpetrator.

Call sounded like it got transferred to a different country. I heard some rustling on the phone, static, person with accent said hello. I promptly hung up.

I've been using a caller ID intercept device which automatically blocks out of area calls, though I'm trying to determine if it blocked this "248" number, as it is designed to only block incoming calls with no numbers registering.

called to 'verify' business listing. first, lady with indian accent stated our business name, address, phone number. i agreed. she then said she would be passing me to supervisor for verification of my verification. heard sounds of heavy call center in background. indian accented male then on phone asking alot of yes/no questions. he became annoyed when i didn't give yes/no answers and asked me to just answer with yes/no. they said that our listing is free and would be sending info in mail for secondary service and if we like it then would charge. i expressed concern that it sounded like something that i would be billed for then would have to call some number to cancel. he denied, and stated that it was totally free. he then went over the same info as first person. once again, i expressed concern. he again, denied any charges until i agreed. he then asked for my birthday. i then said this sounds 'fishy'. he said 'no fishy, it's free' and to just make up a number. when he transfers my call. i just listened and when phone transferred, recording asked him for his agent number. i could hear him punching it in. it then asked for 'billing telephone number'. i hung up. he called again. my daughter answered and hung up. he called again. i hung up. then one more call in which he hung up.

i get them all the time, but never any result, just people talking in the background. Why do they do this? How do they make money? Probably one out of a thousand falls for their crap and they make a few grand off them, so it's worth their time...

I hate these people!

One call did come through (8/8/7; 9:44 AM), caller from 'boiler room' (could hear background voices); English w/Indian accent; ID'd self as from Yellow Pages Online, hung up before I could request being put on 'do-not-call-list'; same # as 'hang-up' calls earlier this week. Cannot call back - message says number 'disconnected' or 'not in service'.

I looked this number up on google because I didn't feel right about it. A foreign male voice was calling on behalf of Yellow Book who we "already have a listing with" according to the man needed to be updated. He gave me the incorrect name and address for our phone number and wanted to transfer me to the other department that fixes these things, put me on hold then came back saying they were having technical difficulties and could he call me back in a half-hour. That is when I became suspicious and looked it up on google. Is this guy scamming a bunch of people or what?

They try to get a NAME... DON'T GIVE THEM YOUR NAME. They want first and last, because you are being SCAMMED for a "global yellow pages" ad. Even if you don't want it, they will have it added to your phone bill. They say they are updating your "free" lising, then they get your name, and you are automatically charged. DON'T GIVE THEM INFORMATION, EVEN YOUR NAME!!!

They called to update info and one of their questions was 'what is my mother's maiden name'. At that point I knew it was a scam and hung up

Said they were calling about some yellow pages listing for my business - I said I was not interested -- could barely even understand caller (English was not their first language) -- then I got another call from the same number about five hours later -- I did not answer -- went to voicemail but they did not leave a message

I have received 10 phone calls from this number over the last two days. When I try to return the call (to tell them to stop calling) the recorded voice says this number has been disconnected. How can they call at 6:19 PM and I call one hour later and the phone has been disconnected? I am on a DONOTCALL list. You can only guess where I'd like to stick my telephone.

They keep calling and trying to update a free listing. Very hard to understand, they want to send you to verification...and sell you a paid listing for some super pages. I've told them to stop calling, they call 3 times a day for the last two weeks.

they call to update info for "free yellow pages" several times. One of the workers here took the call last month and gave them the info they wanted and this month we had a $31.75 charge on phone bill for internet access. I got charges removed, but company is still calling.
