The message said Airduct Services ... guess what-- I don't have air ducts! Reporting to NFIC.
You know what? Just wanted to share this information with you guys. I've file a complaint with the FCC for the past couple days and I called the FCC again today and reported that same SOB Saving Center was on my caller ID and they did not leave any messages. So, the FCC told me that it will take some time to investigate. The FCC suggested that if the same SOB calls me again, just record them up to 4 calls from them and then call the FCC again to complain. That way, if that same SOB call again, the higher the fines going to be imposed on them.
Another call from this number, this time claiming to be "Airduct Services". I hit "1" and got to tell the person what I think of their illegal operation. Also reported as a DNCL violation. Might be more fun in the future though to make bogus appointments - anyone tried that?
Some stupid vent cleaning scam. When i hit #1 and a woman answered she hung up as soon as I said "pleae remove..."
I called the # back and got a machine saying I could hit #1 to be removed from the list.
Reported as a DNCL violation
this number is calling my cell phone day and night. I am really irritated. Leaves an automated voicemail about credit. I am on the do not call list and I am filing a complaint.
17 Feb 2011 -- 7:54 pm -- Caller ID said "saving center". No message left. Reading some of the other posts, suspect this is a credit counselling service. Possible scam. Number is listed as a cell phone in North Dakota!
17 Feb 2011 -- 8:00 pm -- no message left.
Received a call (as I do 3 times a week), when I answer there is dead air, and then hangs up. No Caller ID showed up, but reverse dialed the number. A recording comes on if I want to be removed from their call list, just press 1 (no other option). I call from a pool number that shows a different number than what I'm calling from, so I'm going to be stuck with this for a while! I tried pressing 2, but it just hung up. Tried pressing 0, same issue.
8 Feb 2011 -- 5:15 pm -- no message was left.
Received a Call from 'Credit Debt Reduction Service', 701-625-5003 SHows as a Mobile Phone, from Martin, ND. Robo MAchine says press 1 to GEt name removed from List (AS if!), and to press 2 to speak to live agent. (I Press 2), Speak with a polite agent, 'Devon', I ask if this call centre is in Canada, as I am on the Do-Not-Call List, but its broken for US callers.(Never was supposed to stop ROBO callers from a FOREIGN Country!). I ask her to confirm the number that was dialed, and she does, She says she will put my number on the (Internal?) Do-Not-Call List. I thank her for her time, and Wish her a great day with helping other 'Clients'. We'll See if this number rings again!.
So I'm once again still commenting on this same stupid number. January 8th eh? How many darn times must I report to the national do not call list? How many hundreds of times do these guys call with automated fraud credit stuff using the same recordings and always changing their numbers without being shut down. I still agree strongly with this guy calgary.
There was nothing on the line. If they call back though, the first words out of my mouth will be "take me off your call list".
I kinda feel like this guy calgary, I mean i have not put comments here on numbers in a while but now I have call display and simply don't answer. But the past 2 or 3 days is relentless with these numbers starting again, and i'm still on the do not call list.
Nonetheless, Andy, the FTC recently had to force settlement payments to thousands of "utter fools" while shutting down several credit reprice scammers.

They called today with an offer for credit card debt restructuring services. Here's a transcript of the recording:
"Right now, credit card companies are accepting reduced settlements from people just like you. We would be happy to talk to you about your situation. If you would like to be removed from our list, then please press '2' right now. But, if you're struggling with any type of unsecured debt and you'd like to find out more about getting completely debt-free, then press '1' now to be connected to a counselor. Press '1' now to be connected."
Obviously, one would have to be an utter fool to take these people up on their offer, or to allow them any kind of access to your financial info.
Annoying fraudulent bastards....leave me alone or I'll exercise my right to bear arms.....
Same experience as Chicago Ed's comment.
It was an automated call offering to help me obtain part of $40 billion in government grants. A grant is presumed to be "free money." Of course, governments expect something to be returned for the grant investment and there are consequences for failing to deliver. The message asks me to push 1 to speak to an agent. push 2 to be taken off the list. I pushed 1 and was shunted to another automated message asking me to leave my name and number. I hung up. Caller ID is "Savings Center." This is scam. With a little effort anyone can search government on-line listings for RFP's and grant offerings -- federal government, state-by-state, and local municipalities. No doubt there is a fee for either finding "grants" or filing out paperwork. While a "newbee" could certainly benefit from doing all the paperwork necessary to apply, organizations such as "SCORE" can also help. Hardly any applicant gets to the point of consideration the first few times it applies because the applicant lacks the underlying qualifications. The grants I participate in have a very low acceptance to application rate. Bottom line odds, metaphorically: of getting a government grant through the efforts of companies such as this is about the same as hitting the lotto jackpot or being struck by lightening.
