Caller was a woman with a heavy East Indian accent. Said she was calling from "Simple.net" a new Internet Service provider. I told her I wasn't interested in changing and hung up. I tried to call the number back to find out who it was and the first two times I only got dead silence like a dead line, the third time I got "This number has been disconnected or is no longer in service" recording, like from the phone company. Although I'm suspicous that they've hijacked that message as well and it's not actually the phone company.
No sooner did I hang up from that recording did my phone ring again. This time no one was on the other end. Dead line like when I tried to call the number back.
I've seen other postings online that this same number comes up with people trying to sell everything from prescription medications to AT&T services. I don't know who they are, but seeing as I've been on the National Do Not Call list as well as my State's Do Not Call list ever since I moved to this state and was assigned my number, but ONLY started getting telemarketing and bogus collection calls since I switched from an Analog Phone provider to a PCS/Digital Provider...I somehow think it's connected in some way.
I've called my phone provider, but they insist they do not sell phone numbers of customers, but I don't see why it only started as soon as I switched.
Coincedence? I doubt it.
