Seems like the frequency of these illegal calls is increasing.
no message on the machine
These creeps called at 7:46 p.m. just after I had gone to bed. They rang my phone for what seemed like an eternity. Long after others would give up. No way am I ever going to answer a call which says EXCHANGESTUDENT.
Mister Number has an interesting thing to say about this one:
"618-551-5559 is not a valid number. If you are sure that you got a phone call from a number beginning with this prefix, the caller may have 'spoofed' caller ID."
That, and the fact that so many different people on the web have gotten called by this number tells me it's spam or a scam. What 'exchange student' calls all these different people from all over the country, including me?
Hopefully, this post will save somebody some time. Best to let it go to voicemail, which they won't leave anything on anyway.
Do not respond to these crooks they break the law at every turn with empty threats block them an report them to the BBB...
Caller is attempting to obtain personal information on names family members, obtain cellular telephone numbers, dates of birth and parts of social security numbers. Female caller had strong accent and a sensual voice. Call felt like a phishing.
Didn't leave a message. Do they really think I'm going to answer because the ID says exchange student?!
