Getting many calls from this number. Google shows it to belong to a P. Marquette (610) 269-8829 1329 Piedmont Dr, Downingtown, PA 19335
I sent the below email to Verizon on this matter. I would recommend others do the same.
I am receiving harrassing phone calls from one of your Verizon subscribers. It appears the subscriber is using his phone in a telemarketing/scam capacity. Complaints can be found on multiple websites regarding fraud calls received from this number.
I have noted these websites to flood your company with calls and complaints until this subscriber either stops or your company ceases the subscribers destructive behavior.
If a telemarketer calls your cellphone with a computerized voice, it's a violation of the FCC. You can report them online at http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm.
Computerized voice selling extended auto warranty. I stayed on the line, and when the representative came on and asked if I wanted to purchase an automotile warranty, I asked for the name of the company. She asked why I wanted to know that... I told her that she'd called me on a business cell phone and I wanted to know what company it was. She hung up on me before I could finish my sentence.
Sounds like some coincidences going on here. also got call on my cell. probably telemarketing.

Check out this other site that is documenting info about this 610 # too:
Today - 07/09/08 I just missed a call from this number 610-269-8829 once I didn't recognize it - I googled it and I found this page. I went ahead and called back - it rang and rang and no one answered. When they called, they didn't hang up quick enough, so a portion of the automated voice mail they had going was recorded by my voice mail. It had to do with some topic related to automobiles?? Maybe they sell extended waranties or they are just plain prankers. Keep me posted in what you hear! Thanks!
I just got a call from this phone number. I live in Massachusetts.
It was an automated message asking me if I wanted to participate in a Satellite promotion where I could get a "free DVR". They never said what commpany they were with (for example they didn't say DishNetwork, Direct TV) or anything like that. It just said "If you would like to hear more about this offer Press 1, if you would like to be Removed, press 3".
I pressed 3 and looked the number up on Google.
Thank Goodness I have the Black and White List for my cellphone. This # is going on it!!
And I'm listing this message on every "Who Called" type site that I can to warn people that this is a scam that's not just about Auto Warrenties (some people get a call about that too from this #).
phone rang once and the other party hung up
I just got a call from them but I wasn't able to answer
