Having been getting steady calls all hours of the day and night for the past few weeks from 919-864-6178, 312-470-8599, and now a new one 414-431-0457. I am no longer picking up and when I don't the call is immediately followed by Unknown/Unknown on caller i.d. Today when caller i.d. showed a company's name I picked up thinking it might be a real business call (my number is a business number) no one responded when I answered with my company's business greeting. Still thinking it really may have been a client or biz call, I called the number and only heard static.

4th Call from same man with accent, this time he said some obscene things. (In my previous comment I said the caller didn't sound Middle Eastern. This call-I specifically asked what nationality he was and eventually found out originally from Bangladesh but moved to Pakistan. I knew he didn't have a Middle Eastern accent. When I asked what other language he spoke in addition to English he said he can also speak Hindi.) I told the caller that the FBI, CIA, and "World Police" were after him. He became very nervous and extremely apologetic asking me please not to do that. I lectured him saying people all over the world are in one family, and that he should have respect for women and not say those things to anyone except his wife. I asked if he would say those things to his mother and he apologized saying it was a bad habit. For what it's worth, he promised never to make those calls again. He (other caller ID number 312-470-8599 & Unknown)

Same caller-man with accent--called for the third time in the past hour. (First time caller ID showed Unknown Name 919-864-6178; second caller ID showed Illinois Call 312-470-8599; third caller ID showed Unknown Name Unknown Number. I answered with my company's name and all he said was, "hello", I did not reply. Although I didn't hear any voices in the background on this third call today, I believe this is the same type of call, and possibly the same caller's voice. (I reported these calls at this website just minutes ago.) One of the comments below identified calls coming from Lebanon, but my caller's accent does not sound Arabic--sounds more Southeast Asian or Asian.

Last week same caller called a few times. First time I heard people in the background speaking a language I couldn't identify, then a man spoke asking me who I was. I told him he called ____(company for which I work) and then I asked if he had the correct number and also asked who he wanted. "I want you, only you." was his reply. I answered, "this is a crank call. I wish you a good day" and then quietly hung up. He called again two times but didn't speak. This morning I received two calls by the same person except that the numbers were different. He didn't speak either of the times but the same background voice. Numbers used this morning (same as last week) 312-470-8599. Alternate number was 919-864-6178.

This number belong to a call center in Lebanon
The people in this center are thieves because they steal calling cards from web sites and they used it in their call center in Lebanon. They use numbers that connected to switches in united state and it looks they are a gang that do illegal stuff also if you check the countries they call based on the calling cards that they steal you will find it very strange because it looks its possible that they cause threat

They have this phone number 503-205-0901 and also the following
