You guys are great. These calls are coming from Venali. They are a company who use the internet to fax customers on behalf of other companies. The lady I spoke to stated that they get a lot of fraudulent accounts purchased. Whatever it is, it's irritating as hell. She notified me that my number had been removed and that the fraudulent company had been subsequently dropped. She also elaborated on how they specifically set up a department to target and eradicate these fraudulent accounts. Either way, I thank all of you for your posts that lead me to call these fools. The number is 786-552-1900.

FYI - I contacted Venali Customer Support (support@venali.com) and asked them to have their customer remove my number from the automatic-dial list. Venali was terrific about it -- I highly recommend contacting them if you're having trouble.

The phone number that called me was 305/356-2997. The customer name is Vocalocity, and the contact email for them is jr@aretenet.com.

Same as above,,,calls typically mid-night, around 3:30am. Never a sgl. call. Usually in succession.

I wonder, do we all have something in common? What's the common denominator here.

Here is a compilation of posts that seem to work:
Caller ID: 305-356-2997
Caller: Venali, INC
Caller Type: Fax Machine

The company (Venali, INC) is located in Coral Gables and has called our house numerous times. We've called to complain to have our number removed from their data base after finding their number through a google search. I’d recommend everyone who’s had these annoying calls to do the same. Their companies information is listed below:

1 Alhambra Plz., Ste. 800, Coral Gables, FL, United States

786-552-1900

Description: Communications: Venali Inc. uses state-of-the-art Internet technology to deliver secure fax messaging.

The number is for company is 786-552-1900 ask to speak to John Poncy he is the CEO of the company. As Chris mentioned, they are a internet fax messaging company.

WRITE VENALI! This is the company that provides the automatic service allowing these calls to take place.
Their email is:
support@venali.com
If enough people complain they will have to take notice.

I called Venali's customer support center 178-655-21900). They were very pleasnt. They apologized and said they would contact that customer and ask them to update their records and take me off. We'll see if it works. If we all start harrassing Venali maybe they will make it stop.

Recieved several call every day in the late afternoon. Opened a ticket with support@venali.com and after 7 days they did stop.

Isn't it a shame we have to spend our time to protect our privacy from this BS

They're back. Apparently the block doesn't stay on forever. Back in February a call to Venali at 786-552-1900 stopped the calls for a little while, but now they're back. Went through the same process again. We'll see if it works this time.

Called us twice at 3AM. My wife was out for blood!

I called Venali at the number others have given in previous posts, and spoke with a helpful operator. According to my understanding of what the rep said, Venali provides a faxing service where the customer has their own phone number (i.e. the line is not registered to Venali), and Venali sends that number out as the caller ID (easy to do with a PRI).

The solution is apparently as simple as putting in a request with the number you don't want called, and they will put a block on it in their system. Takes 24-48 hours, so I'm unplugging the phone tonight before I go to bed.

we need to contact venali not the individual compannies since it is obvious several scammers are using the same couple of phone/fax lines through venali.
I have emailed and calls to get vinali to block our number so no one can call our number automatically from anywhere within the company. I also mentioned the FL attorney general and list of complaints as well as the law in regards to telephonic abuse.

now I have a tracer from the sheriffs who will take it from here directly with the attorney general.

we are a church and get 30 calls plus per day.. all scam from different companies and individuals... all of it junk and never asked for.

We also use fax recovery systems which is free to sign up and THEY will goa fter these guys, take them to court and you can get $100 if it is taken to court!

Calls started at midnight and continued on from there. I contacted Venali Internet Fax at 786-552-1900 and talked with Operations Control. They were nice but unable to do anything.

Use three way calling to conference the incoming fax call together with yourself and another fax line somewhere (your work fax, kinko's fax line, any fax, etc). Answer phone, hear beeps, click 'flash' button, dial a fax number, click 'flash' again for call conference and stay online to let both fax machines complete the transmission. Doc prints out where ever you sent it, shows where the fax is coming from and what it is regarding as well as stopping the transmission.
Yeah, yeah, it's complicated but it works. It's better than trying to call back to a number that only sz disconnected.

Early or late this number keeps calling. We use a little device called Person-to-Person interceptor ID which keeps trash calls like this one from ringing. I only see the number while erasing numbers.

The company responsible for these calls is Venali.com (a fax blasting company).

I called Venali customer support and after an investigation they said that a client of their's had listed our phone line instead of the fax line for their advertizing faxes. How nice!!!!

I called Venali directly after receiving faxes last night around 11:00 pm. I just pressed zero to get to the operator and she was very pleasant, took my phone number, and traced the call.
She informed me that she would contact the person on that account and if the phone/fax calls did not stop within 48 hours, I should let her know and she would close their account.
Let's hope they make good on their promise!

XO @ 1-888-575-6398 confirmed that they handle the 305-356-2997 account, and the representative I spoke to in Saganaw Michigan was very sympathetic to the problem. He assigned case# CCR2960023 but after checking with his supervisor, told me there was nothing they could do and to call my own phone company to report the problem. What sense does that make?

Well, I have been plagued with the fax calls on my office phone line, for two months now. The phone company led me to this website, where I have read through all of the comments on this problem. I took the phone number of Venali from Johanna's comments, and called Venali. They were very pleasant, and told me that it was a Blood laboratory that was trying to fax patient results to my phone. The business name was Concentra Labs. The customer service person at Venali said he would notify them to stop calling me, and if they continued, he would put a block on my number, so that they couldn't contact me any more. We shall see if it works.

OK, I just got off the phone with Venali and the support guy was very helpful. He took my home phone number that was receiving the calls and was able to trace it back to the company that was making the calls. In this case a healthcare company. He said that they would contact them and let them know the number was incorrect. He also said that they would put a block on my number going forward. So we'll see how it goes, but thanks to whoever figured out that this was Venali facilitating these calls. I was at a total dead end.

Hi:
I got the same fax from ROYAL MOTEL LUXE IN FRANCE requesting three airline tickets. But we went even further as we signed them on the MSN chat and began working along with them. But for some reason we were not comfortable with the urgency of them wanting the passsengers to travel the following day. They were desperate and we told them that we needed a contact number as the one on the fax was not going through. Well they did give us a number 0022-50 80 47 525 which is a number for COTE D Ivoire, West Africa. They are running some sort of credit card scan, be careful.

My experience was that I recented an Invitation to Bid fax from a Construction Firm. I was able to see enough of the fax to call the company who hired this firm out of Atlanta to send out these faxes. They would not disclose the company, but they did get the Atlanta company to stop sending it.

This firm's number is not blockable and the FCC only gives you the Attorney Generals number to call.

At least it is not like a virus. You best bet is to see if you can accept the fax long enough to see who it is from and call them to get it stopped.

My guess by Google search is that this firm is Premiere Global Services who aquired Xpedite Systems, Inc.

This is a message from a GEICO Manager clarifying that it is not a GEICO fax number, and advising how to stop it:

I followed up with Venali and they were able to track the source of the calls you're receiving. The calls appear to be coming from an individual in France. Venali will be contacting the individual in France requiring an explanation within 24 hours. Venali will then block this individual's calls from dialing your number, so you should not receive any calls from the individual in France after tomorrow.

If anything like this occurs in the future, you can contact Venali directly at 786-552-1900 and they can perform the same service for you. They'll just ask for your phone number and can quickly track the source of the incoming calls.

Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Sincerely,

Greg
GEICO Internet Manager

this number just called me several times as well. the first few times it said "unknown name unknown number" on the caller id- then it came up with the number. i called the number and it was a fast busy signal. that is when i looked up the number and saw all of this. WOW. The last time they called I yelled "stop calling". I doubt they were listening, but the calls did stop. I hope this isn't the beginning of a series of daily calls.

Hi Folks!
I got a fax from 305-356-2997.

That fax I got was a request for three airline ticket quotes from a French company or at least it looked like that.
However: I have a couple of phone and fax numbers from the French guys. If you want to get a hold of them, here it comes:
Phone: 00338 71 60 58 84
Fax: 00331 72 74 40 06
Instead 0033 you would have to dial 01133 to reach those guys.
But much easier might be their e-mail addresses:
royalmotel_luxe@yahoo.fr
royalmotel_luxe1@hotmail.com

The message of the fax is:
Royal Motel...Luxe

Plane Tickets Booking Request

Please, can you make the flight tickets reservation for the passengers below and I'm waiting the proce of tickets by e-mail for make the payment by credit card.

It is followed by three names, their passport numbers, departure and return date, departure airport, destination airport
Airline and the category.

the message ends with: Best regards, Jules Bratt

The address of what appeared to be a company called Royal Motel...Luxe is:
12-14 Rond Point des Champs Elysee
Paris, France

Needless to mention, but we are not dealing with airline tickets and certainly never requested this fax.
Good luck hunting down the people behind the fax number 305 356 2997.

Cheers,
Michael.

Hey all I work in a bookstore in Atlanta GA. The calls we are getting is a fax scam. They place orders then try to pay with stolen credit cards. What little contact info we have is 206-600-5849 & COLE_RICHARD2002@Yahoo.com.
The number is good, for what is worth Hell maybe we can harass them.

I have been receiving calls from this number for nearly a year now. BellSouth says they cannot do anything about it. I am on the national do not call list and have reported it to them, I also reported to the FCC and only got a "thank you very much letter"....we all know what that means!! Why can't someone trace these calls and put a stop to them? my next step is to the news media or to state and federal representatives. There is absolutely no reason for this nonsense to continue

GEICO was supposed to fax me something and within 10 minutes, I'd received 25 fax attempts to my cell from this #. I called GEICO to inquire after reading this website and a rep named Stacy confirmed that Venali is one of the fax services they use. She said that someone over there must have entered the wrong # as a fax #. I told her about this site and the experiences of everyone on here. She claims to be sending an email to GEICO's IT department...we'll see.
