Apparently this is an Okay number. It is simply a routing service for various companies, and they call to advise us of related business acivities we are involved with. In our case I'd ordered some Avery label stock from Office Depot yesterday. It arrived via unmarked delivery truck today, after 3 ignored calls with the W Interactive ID about an hour apart this morning. We don't answer unrecognized calls, but they were likely just trying to make us aware of the upcoming delivery. I will answer if they call again now.

It a call back service to notify a request for notification. In this case. Local power company letting me know the power is restored in my area because I requested it. Annoying that it made seven call with no message.

Clearly not "everyone" has reported Comcast. One call center can have multiple clients.

I see everyone is posting that this number belongs to Comcast-We live in Alabama and there is no Comcast in our area.Not sure why they are calling me.

This call came into my cell phone several times but no messages were left. I phoned the number back and repeatedly kept getting a busy signal. When the phone did in fact ring, it rang off the wall until it disconnected itself from me. I sent a text message to see if this was in fact a landline number and I received a bounce back text which stated it was indeed a landline number.
I phoned information and asked for a reversal on the number and was told they had no information on this particular number other than the number was listed as an Omaha,Nebraska exchanged.
Finally, when the call came in again, I quickly picked up the phone and there was a fifteen minute delayed response from the caller. I found myself listening to a recorded message which stated it was Central Hudson Gas and Electric Company calling to inform me that the service in my area had been restored. (Per my request two days before via my local utility company during the early winter storm along the northern eastern area.)
I shall make an assumption this is perhaps a service to notify callers of such for perhaps different businesses unless it is just centralized for Central Hudson Gas and Electric Utilities.
Hope this helps others.

They called first thing in the morning and left a message from "Office Depot" about my order that was on hold had been canceled, and I needed to call their customer service back at 1-800-463-3768 which it is indeed an Office Depot number, they told me they usually hire West Interactive (a customer service specialized company) to handle customer service calls in their behalf.

I believe there are other companies doing the same as Office Depot, that's why West Interactive keep showing in the caller ID.

I learned that this was a call on behalf of Office Depot (perhaps they outsource to West Interactive) to confirm a delivery of Epson Ink cartridges to my home. This was a legitimate transaction, so this particular call, while not my favorite to get these endless "Unknown Name" calls, was OK by me.

I just got another call back from this number, and it was an robocall from Comcast telling me my service is activated or some sh**. Problem is I don't have any sort of Comcast services that I used this number for the account. This is my secondary voip line they're calling. My Comcast cable is registered under our primary phone number. My cable was "activated" years ago...

It's Comcast calling with an automated message letting you know service was restored in your particular area. I got 4 calls from them! If you don't answer, apparently it keeps trying to call you. The 4 calls all occurred within 1/2 hour. Strange Nebraska area code...!

this number 402 572 7581 is from Levits to confirm delivery. I just got a missed call from it before and called it back but it was busy. 20 min later that same number called so I answered it. It was an automated message to confirm delivery.
Just wanted to let others know.

This number called me to make sure that our power had been restored. We had an outage late the night before, and they called at 830 am to make sure it was back on and there were no longer any problems. It was an automated phone call and no live operator is ever available.

Last night my electric went out and I asked for a callback when power had been restored. It went out at 10:15 pm on 10-25-07, and I received this call at 3:57 am 10-26-07, the power had been restored at 2:26 am (I know because I woke up). I can only guess it was the call back for the power restoration. I think a bunch of companies have outsourced their callbacks to this specific company (West Interactive) for various different things. That's the only thing I can figure anyway.

On another site they said West was the company doing this, but I work for them and why would they call their own agents when they are taking calls for their own company?

I do not have comcast or any cable/telephone service provider being I'm just moving into a new home and that same # has called my cell 3 times in a row today(10-13-07)each 12-13mins. apart. I couldn't answer because I was working and no messages were left. Had no clue who was calling so decided to google it instead of having to speak to someone I didn't want to. Very weird no??? Not to mention the bs that WE have to deal w this!!!!

If the "West Interactive" entries are accurate, this is probably West Corp. (they have several call centers - www.west.com) calling on behalf of one of their clients.

yeah i agree with dave gee. it is a call back call if cable has been out of svc in ur area they call to let u know it's back on, automated thing i guess.

I received four calls within about three minutes, in this order...

"Unavailable"
"402-572-7581"
"Unavailable"
"402-572-7581"

None of them left a message. My cable went out yesterday and was restored about an hour later. I had told the automated system to call me when it had been restored but it never did. If this number was them calling to tell me my cable was back on, they're about twelve hours late, and it's really annoying that they keep calling back without just leaving a message. Seems like this West Interactive company needs to fix some glitches in their system.
