Only 1-up from http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/580-789-4593
- gotta be the same perps! Suspect this is the Spanish-speaking junk call and http://www.whocalled.us/lookup/580-789-4593
is the English one.
This call came to my cell phone last night. I don't answer unfamiliar numbers on my cell.
I did an area code search and found the following website:
Which gave me the following info:
580 arear code is in Blackwell, OK
"Your Prefix Search Results
Searching for area code 580, prefix 789:
Area Code: 580
Type of service: CLEC"
CLEC prefixes are used by businesses or Internet providers who do not wish to use regular telephone companies (Verizon, Qwest, AT&T, etc). There may or may not be additional charges when dialing these prefixes.
the machine that answered when i called sounds french. Ive gotten 3 calls like this on my phone. 2 of them i didtn answer, the one i did was a recording of a spanich lady. I understand spanish but she was talking really fast and the recording was distorted, all i could make out was that she wanted to send me something free if i say ok, or hit a number or something like that. weird. maybe if we all start calling it back it will tie up their line.
This recording was in Spanish, and was already talking when I answered the phone. I think someone's auto-dialer has gone berserk! (not the first time I've gotten this call)
Message in spanish. I wish I understood Spanish. I received on cell phone. Must be an "autodialer" or a telecom version of a spambot using skype like software. I work in communications, and using this type of system to hit all 10,000 numbers to a prefix is what they are doing. This is illegal. We use similar setup to test a new phone systems, but we call from your line(in phone office) to a test line, so you never know we are doing it. Curiousgeorge is absolutely right. If you enter your # they will know it is a valid number(hello telemarketers), just like if you open spam email, the spambot knows it is a valid address, and sells you're info. Kudos to everyone here for sharing this annoying experience.
I never answer calls from anyone on my cell except for friends and family. I have NO CLUE how they got my number or why they call.

They just called my work line.
I'll get these kind of call all the time on my cell phone. I can't stand it. Its always a recording in spanish.
Nice to know I'm not the only one. I get the same thing, some woman talking in rapid Spanish. This is the 2nd time I've gotten it. I'd really love to know what it is and why -- especially since this is happening on my cell phone---out of curiosity? Is this happening on only cells?
Pre-recorded message, in Spanish (which I don't understand)
When I called back is was a voice with a foreign accent speaking in English saying it was a travel related call and more information is available. If I wanted to be taken off the list to be called press "1". I pressed "1" and it said it was an invalid choice then said to type my phone number. I, of course, did not because I figured it was a way for them to confirm my number so I hung up.
I recieved a call from this number today with a recording in non english
when i called back, it was a computerized voice that said "hello, this is a trouble related call if you want more information we will have to call you back later....then it gave the option of being taken off the list and then it asked for my 10 digit phone number...it's odd that if someone dialed my phone in the beginning that it would ask for my 10 digit phone number.
