Came in Out of Area hung up after 4 rings.
Home Survey was on my caller ID also. It shows as Rhode Island???
Did not recognize phone number and don't know anyone in Rhode Island so i didn't pick up, seems to be another telemarketer based on reports from others. being on the DoNotCall registry and reporting these guys to the FTC and FCC doesn't seem to help.
I was actually home. I try to pick up so I can get my number removed. I pressed #1 to talk to someone so I can tell them to remove my number. #2 was that option, but I'm sure I have already tried that. When I got a woman on the phone, I asked to be removed and she said sure and HUNG UP ON ME! And you try to call back and get a busy signal!
I have found THAT IF I DON'T PICK UP, THE CONTINUE TO CALL. I HAVE HAD SUCCESS ANSWERING THE CALL AND HAVING MY NUMBER REMOVED BY LEAVING A MESSAGE OR PRESSING A CERTAIN NUMBER.
IF YOU PICK UP, THE CID SYSTEM REGISTERS THAT THEY HAVE CONNECTED AND WON'T CALL BACK FOR A WHILE.
Why do people think if the phone rings they must answer it? You have
CID, USE IT! Do you let anyone coming to your door into your home? Of
course not. Wake up people, these are crooks, DO NOT ANSWER when they
call you! They manipulate the CID system so the info is probably fake.
If for some insane reason you must answer it's too late! Soon as you
answer you've told them your number is valid. They sell this info to
other scammers. Pushing a # to 'remove yourself from their list' does
absolutely NOTHING for you. Do NOT call them back!
IF YOU DON'T RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER DON'T ANSWER THE PHONE! WAKE UP!
Stop these calls with Phone Tray Pro - Https://www.phonetray.com/
The phone block system the phone company charges you for does NOT
block all the calls Phone Tray Pro does. I have NO connection with
Phone Tray Pro, I am simply an EXTREMELY happy customer. Best money
I have ever spent! DIGITONE ($100)(Only blocks 80 #s), TELE ZAPPER,
PRO CALL BLOCKER ($50), CALL BLOCKERs Amazon.com sell etc
don't do nearly what Phone Tray Pro does and cost a LOT more! Don't
waste your money on these worthless gadgets. As of 08/28/13 I have
205 #'s, 12 Wild Card #'s and 18 CID names on my PTP Black List that
will never get through again. The DNC doesn't affect scammers.
Don't be so naive. You can report them to the FTC but honestly when
was the last time the federal government ever did anything for you?
Oh I forgot, Obamacare. Speaking of scams!
