Well....I found out who the above phone numbers belong to!!!!! I was web searching & found out that it is a collection agency called Van Ru Credit Corp. Their phone number is 1-800-468-2678
. When I called they were not very nice along with not very organized! Their computers have been waking me up at all hours because I have a CLOSED VISA ACCOUNT that is PAID IN FULL!!!!!!!! They didn't check their records further to see that there is NO REASON TO CALL ME. They denied those annoying, stupid phone calls at all hours with no apology. I HOPE you all call them and straighten out whatever your problem may be with them!!!!! Report them to BBB and anyone else you can think of. I have only received one more call since I called them (2 weeks ago). I live in California along with many of you.
They call at all times of the day, but mostly later in the evening and into the early morning. The other night I received a call at 10:45 p.m. and then again at 1:30 a.m. On another occasion, I received a call from this number at 4:30 a.m. Just as others have commented, I called the number back and it has been disconnected. This is ridiculous!!!!!! I am also in CA.
I too have received numerous calls from this number. They usually call around 4am. I have a brandnew baby and get hardley any sleep as it is!!
I've been harrassed too. Just reported it to my colleagues at the FBI.
I wish the Agency can handle it but we can't.
They promised me it will be investigated asap.
This number has been calling us a couple of times already at 2am, 3am at noon and nightimes. Who are these freaks? What's the government doing about it? There's too much rights on this country that people are free to harrass you anytime they want to. Cowards!
these people call in the middle of the night here in Cali. You can hear someone on the other end breathing but never talk to you. you call the number back and it says they are disconected and no longer in service
who are these people
called number back after them calling 5 times today. It said they were disconected and no longer in service.
They call in the middle of the night, you can hear someone on the other end and they never speak, very weird
they call in the middle of the night, when you answer they don't say anything, when your answering machine picks up there is no message.
Who are these people and what do they want.

THEY CALLED AT 1:33 AM AND WHEN I CALLED BACK I GOT AN OPERATOR MESSAGE SAYING IT WAS DISCONNECTED. VERY WEIRD!
received numerous calls from these bastards!!! 2 and 3am.. cant call back, phone disconnected. very strange... BURN IN HELL telemarketers!!!!!!!!
I have been getting calls from this number for a few weeks now. It's an off-shore phone scam. DO NOT ANSWER THE PHONE.
These calls are made to my home alomost daily. At all hrs of the day , late night , early morning... anytime.
They are annoying. I now sleep with mt ringer off . Which to me is dangerous.
Same story as everyone else. I have received 4 calls in middle of night and late evening. I'm sick of it. Think I will block them on my phone.
please block, i am taking bedroom phone off jack at night, let me know when you locate this "sickie"
Also in CA - same thing: we've received 2 calls (most recent last night at 2:11am) from this number. No one on other end. Can't call back.
this number is calling my home in the middle of the night - on several occasions - at 2AM, 3:30AM and 3:02AM respectively. it says it is a disconnected # upon return call. how do i reach this business, person, # and put a stop to the calls?
They phoned my house this morning at 4:30 - who is this?! Very rude and annoying!
At 2:40amn on Wednesday February 13,2008 ,I received a call from this number. I tried to call the number back, but the call did not go through. The phone recordings says "You have reache a number that has been disconnected or no longer in service."
I received a call from this number at 11:55pm California time and they hung up as soon as I answered the phone. This is not the first time they have called me at this hour. We have small children in the house and I would like to know how to get them to stop calling. I have called the phone number but I receive a "this number is not in use" message.
keep getting phone calls from this number and just like everyone else, you call back and it says this number is disconnected. So I am going to block it!
This caller is from Houston,Texas. Reverse directory says it's a residential number. I have filed a complaint with the Attorney Generals office in Texas. Everyone should do the same ! I also live in California.
WE HAVE RECEIVED A CALL FROM THIS PLACE TWICE. LAST TIME WAS TODAY 02-06-08 AT 1:09AM
Received call at 3:25 AM! No one on line. Harassment by telemarketer or collection agency? I filed a complaint with the FCC. You can do this online and it only takes a few minutes
Please take the time to file a complaint or we will all keep getting calls in the middle of the night!
I keep getting calls at all times of the night and early hours. No one says anything and it's very concerning.
Received call at 1:31am this morning. Answered and no one on line. When I called back, message states number is not in service. This is the second time we have received a call from this number in the early morning hours - didn't log the first.
the reason why its disconected is its an outgoing phone nly ... no incoming calls. im also being harrasses by this number and i will find out what to do and try to repost an update.

Called EARLY one morning withing the last couple of weeks, but didn't bother to answer. Called again THIS morning @ 12:45 a.m. PST...twice! No one there either time.
There must be some common thread...I live in San Diego, Ca. We, too, had a tragic call at 3:00a.m. end of November...now when the phone rings in the night it shatters my nerves. I have had about 4 of these calls since early December.
Could these people be off-shore? I have been getting calls in the early a.m., anywhere from 3:a.m to 5:45 a.m. The only collector I would have is Household Bank that starts calling if my account is 10 days late. They are all from overseas, and speak broken English.
I get a call from them every couple days and one time at 2am. What can we do to stop them??????
I live in Chico Ca and have received 7 phone calls from this company in 6 weeks. Every call wakes me up around 3AM. My brother died on 12/22/07 of a heart attack. He was only 55. I received that call at 5AM with the sad news. Everytime the phones rings in the early hours I am afraid to answer the phone. I plan on reporting them for harrassment!! (I also have a voodoo doll I bought in New Orleans with their name on it).....BEWARE....
I have had at least 15 cals from this number, if anyone knows who it is let us all know
Received call at 3:35 am in California. No one on the line, called number back and got the disconnected message.
This could very well be the routing number for a calling card; it seems to fit the pattern (strange calls, bogus number), though no guarantees on whether I'm right or not on that.
In California also, received this call in past early morning.
Today bout 3:27 afternoon. I don't pick up...if they really
need to talk to me will have to leave messaage, IF I don't know
you I won't call back...its really irritating.
I don't pick up-4:00 afternoon
Received a call from this number at 3:27pm today in California. Went to voicemail, but they didn't leave a message, & hung up after the recording started.
I too received a call in CA at 5:45AM this morning.
This is a dialer call from a Collection Agency. The GC- stands for
Guaranteed Contacts. The employee on the other end must have realized
that they were calling TOO early by FDCPA (Federal Debt Collection Practices Act), or they were dialing the wrong number and terminated the call. The "HU" is dialer lingo for "Hung Up".Obviously this is not a
reputable agency to be using a caller id number that is disconected. I will be reporting this to the CA State Attorney Generals Office today. I would suggest that you do the same.
I received called at 2:00 am in CA. Then next morning I called back the message says "No longer in the service or disconnect...from Houston" Area code 281 is TX. Can we do something to stop it.
1:05 AM Call. No one on other line
called at 12:30 am. Answered but no one talked back.
I've received these calls at all hours and it's annoying. No one is ever there, and when I can't pick up, no messages are left.
These bastards have been calling us for about a week or so now & last nite they woke us up at around 3am.
Needless to say we are very annoyed & it is really bothering us.
We'd like exactly WHO is behind this, anyone with info please post it.
I want to pursue legal action if it continues.
They've called twice both times after 2:00 a.m. No msg.
Quit calling me at 5:30 in the am... take me off the list... no message left
We have recieve two calls from this #; one at 1:30 am and one at 5:30 am Pacific time. I called the # back and got a message the # has been disconnected
received this call at 1:00am. didn't recognize name so didn't answer and they didn't leave a message. I am also in CA
This time they called at 3:42am on 1/16/2008. Each time there is no one on the line when I answer. And each time I've tried to call back and the number was out of service.
These people called at 11:45pm
2nd call from them!! First was at 2:30am in Visalia, CA. 2nd was at 6:28am. Both times, there was nobody on the other line. Tried calling back 1st time, and got the same result. Disconnected. Thinking of getting rid of our home phone!!
Received a call on Jan 9 at 5:47PM and on Jan 15 at 10:15 PM. Who is this number? No message was left and when I called back it said the number had been disconnected, or no longer in service
got a call on 1/14/08...didnt leave a message...didnt call the number back.
received this call at 541pm on 1/10. and there was a human at the other end! asked for eddie, i told them they don't have this number and to take us off their calling list. the person said back (a guy) in a creepy voice..."oh yes, we will keep calling back." so, i thought i would call back and report this jerk to whatever company this was making the call. very odd...number was disconnected and not in service! i haven't had any calls since that day, hopefully i will no longer receive anymore either. there used to be another number that we would get calls from, same thing as most of you, no message, no one on the other end and number disconnected!!!
Received several call over the last 2 months. Same result as the others.
Received a call from this number today. Also in California. Didn't leave message.
Got message at 2:36 today. I am also in CA. Didn't answer. No message.
