I got the "Obama hatred" version. Scroll down to see the other posts. I agree with those posts and pity the sincere, probably older, folks who will get taken by these hucksters.
Maybe next month they'll have an "Obama love" version.
What this is, is a sweepstakes line. What you do is give them all your credit card numbers, and if one of them is lucky, they'll send you a PRIZE!

100% SPAM. SCAM. Called again today, 7/8/13. SECOND complaint to the DNC List registered against this number (but about my 2,000th complaint all around).
I hope EVERYONE on this site is ALSO FILING THEIR COMPLAINTS with the Gov. They cannot even START to do anything about any particular number unless they get a certain minimum number of official complaints. So FILL OUT THOSE FORMS online, all!
We need to PRESSURE our reps in Congress: If the NSA is TRACKING *ALL* our phone calls - AND they are tracing them back to OVERSEAS calls, when appropriate, THEN, THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND THE CALL CENTERS IN INDIA, PAKISTAN and other places and **SHUT THEM DOWN** ala Osam bin Laden Style!
SEND SEAL TEAM 6 after these SCAMMERS!!!!

I don't live in OHIO so this is not a "local call" which shows on the caller ID. And...if it's political, it's a scam. Didn't answer, but they call EVERY DAY. WTF is Do Not Call Registry??? Means absolutely nothing to me.
Called US today (7/5/13) @4:12pm; Caller ID said "Local Call" even though we are FIVE states, 11 hours and an entire TIME ZONE away! Do they think we are STUPID??? Wasn't home; no message on machine.
I would block this number, but (1) my call blocker is FULL and (2) they will just CHANGE their SPOOFED number tomorrow or next week, anyway - and TRY TO SCAM and BOTHER us again.
IF THE GOVERNMENT IS TRACKING ALL OUR CALLS in the name of "PROTECTION" - *TRACING* those calls to supposed terrorists - THEN WHY CAN'T THEY TRACK DOWN THE SOURCES of THESE CALLS and SHUT THEM DOWN???? Answer: They COULD if they WANTED to, but SOME FAT CAT that gives all kinds of $$$ to the Politicians (BOTH Parties) is BEHIND THIS getting even more FILTHY Rich.
WHEN are we going to TAKE BACK our RIGHTS and our COUNTRY??? So much for 'Happy July 4th."
My call was somewhat from those previously reported; an offensive recording cutting down Obama. I listened through it hoping for a chance to dial "1" and blow my whistle at someone -- but what happened was a request to speak my name after the beep, upon which I gave up and hung up.
they will save you money off your energy bill if you give them all of your credit card numbers
I knew that a call from the Cleveland-Akron area wasn't local.
