Called the number back and they had a fake "no longer in services" message. My guess is they are scammers.
This number called I actually talked to a person and they was trying to sell me Medical Insurance w/ free dental and vision insurence. They quoted me prices and I told them that I have a better Medical Insurance than what they were trying to sell and they asked if they could call me back I told them no and that I would not give any personal info about myself and ask to be removed from their list. IDK if they really did remove me or not, but I have a feeling I will soon find out?? But the lady gave me a website to look at it's called http://www.insurehealth.net. Looks more like a loan place than anything cause it has many Banks listed in the sidebar. I feel this is a scam.
This number [251-990-3701] called a cell phone I use for outgoing calls only and claimed to be "Medical Benefits Association" promoting health insurance. As other commenters have reported, there's a voice prompt to press "1" for more information, "2" to be removed from list. I did neither and stayed on the line until the call was disconnected. Note that calling a cellular line for telemarketing purposes is illegal, unless expressly authorized by the customer. You do NOT need to be registered on the Do Not Call list in order for this to occur. I encourage persons who have received a call from this number on a cellular line (and have answered it to verify the information) to file FCC Form 1088 "Junk Faxes and Telemarketing" at fcc.gov. The form is easy to complete online, but does require specific information, so it's important that one actually have answered a call from this number (or any number that dials a cellular line without express permission).
Received a call from this number on a new cell in TN. At first the number was 877-379-0866
on yesterday 6:36 PM CST, picked it only due to thinking it was the cellphone company, but behold, it was about health insurance $3.00 a day and so I looked it up online. Usually I look a number up before answering, but I wasn't at a computer at the time. And now this number 251-990-3701 on today (July 23, 2009) at 12:48 CST. More than likely whoever is doing this is an affiliate of this network they're promoting, but surely they'll be caught some time soon, by the phone/cell phone companies if everyone complain about receiving these spam telemarketing calls. If you're not on the Do Not Call Registry make sure do join online, and report these people. And be sure to report them to your phone/cellphone company.

this number called today but i didn't pick up. said it was from g. duke from alabama should i be concerned?
called my phone for first time. no voicemail. this is a business mobile # with Sprint. I do not answer #s I don't recognize.
this # called, but they didn't leave message.
I never give out my cell phone number to no one except for friends and family, Today I got this phone call for the 1st time. I have Verizon cellular service. WTF???
DUKE G Fair Hope Alabama -called me
I never answer a number I do not recognize. I figure if it is a legitimate call they will leave a voice mail. If they do not leave a message I always try to check for it online. Thanks to everyone who has done the same thing. I will ignore from now on.
This # just appeared on my cellphone today and since I was working I did not get the call. It just indicated a missed call and the place did not leave a message. I am glad I googled the # to get this information. Thanks!
I called my power company to report an outage from my regular cell phone. They asked for a number to call me back on to provide updates. So I gave them the number of the prepaid cell phone I have only for eBay contact purposes. I almost never give you this number. 10 minutes after giving the power company the prepaid phone number, this phony health insurance company called. No one had called this phone number since late LAST YEAR--more than 7 months ago!
This was a telemarketing call from United Health and Life trying to sell life insurance. I asked them to remove me from their list, which they politely said they would.
If you try to call it back, you get a system message saying the number has been disconnected.
They called my phone 7/13/09 and left no message. Caller ID said from Alabama and I was working so I could not answer it.
They called today and I saw it was coming from Alabama so I did not answer it as I do not know anyone from Alabame. No voicemail. I did not call back

Is there a web site to report these numbers if you're on the national do not call list?
I'm confused as to how they have access to my cell phone number. But the comments here really helped, thanks.

Received call today from this number on my cell phone. No message left. Thanks to all the comments listed here, I will not answer or call back this number.
Received call from this # on my cell at about 11:45. Did not answer and they did not leave a message. Very annoying.
Recieved a call yesterday on cell phone and today they called my work phone. Caller id said Duke G with the same number as yesterday. They didn't say anything and they hung up. Called back again and said disconnected but I have never heard a recording like that. It's really bothering me.
something should be done about this phone number and it should be stopped
this phone number called my house yesterday but left no message. came up Duke G on caller ID.
didn't answer, no message.
they just called me. i didn't call back. no voicemail either. besides how did they get a cell phone number anyways
Since June I started receiving calls on my cellular from Unknown Sources. 251-990-3701 is one. I have started doing a Reverse Phone Number Search and still not able to identify some callers.
Stop dailing my cell phone
They call me too just a few minutes ago. I didn't answer and there was no voice mail. When I called back, I got the disconnected tones. I called back again and there was a voice that stated the disconnected message, but it wasn't a voice I've heard before. They have their scam planned well.
Number called my house phone at around 9:50am central time on 07/09/2009. Wasn't awake so I called it back. If you listen carefully it doesn't sound like the normal voice that does the disconnected messages.
I got this call in the morning when i was in a time of confusion. It caught me off gaurd. Anybody into research with me contact me, email@example.com please and thank you!
called my cell and didn't leave a message
I got this call this morning and the number showed on caller id. I didn't answer, hit ignore. But when I went to call the number back, says the number was disconnected. Strange
my phone said they were calling from Fairhope, Alabama
Called my cell phone at work, picked it up and no one there. Tried calling back and message said it was disconnected
I got this call when I was shopping. When I picked it up, it had been already hung up. So annoying!!!
I just got a call from this number at work, July 7, 2009, 11:55am Central time. It must be on a random dialing system.
Received call on my cell phone at 9:37 am. No name showed on caller id, just the number. Did not answer, no message was left.
I just got this call, tried to call back, says disconnected. I am on do not call list too. I want them to stop
called my "private" cell number; left no message. July 7,2009 @12:58pm Eastern time

called my cell and didn't leave a message. when i called the number back it said it was disconnected.
Just got one of these calls on my cell (July 6, 2009 10:14 am Mountain Time), but I didn't answer. The unknown female voice recorded a message on my voicemail. Annoying.
I am on the do not call list and they still called.
This number just called my cell. Don't know anyone in Alabamba so I didn't answer it.
I got a call from this number on Monday July 6 at 9:55CST on my cell phone. It is a recorded call that talked about some healthcare benefit and asks you to press 1. Please do not do that; Think is a fradulent phone call. The idea is to get you to cough up personal information, so they can scam you.
Also, the caller name that displays is Duke, G.
VOIP Phone Jul 03rd, 2009
I have a VOIP phone that is used in Asia and these unwanted calls come in the middle of the night! We have NEVER had unwanted calls to our VOIP phone, so this is very annoying.
VOIP Phone Jul 03rd, 2009
received unwanted call on my cell while i was in traffic.july 2nd
Claimed to be the Association of Health Benefits. Said to press 1 to find out about it. I assume this is similar to he scam that was going around a couple months ago. I wouldn't suggest anyone provide any information requested.
251-990-3701 calls everyday to my cell phone. A recording for health Insurance. I am on the do not call list and want these calls to stop.
