This number has called my cell phone several times. I haven't answered, as there is no one I know "from the Los Angeles Area". However, after the 3rd call I was curious and called the number back. It was answered immediately with a recorded female voice that said "We can settle your credit card debt for a fraction of of what you owe. If you are having trouble paying your credit card debt...". At that point I hung up. Sleeze balls as far as I am concerned (I'm retired Cop with no credit card debt). Beware - this smells like a scam.
