i get these computer generated calls from tahiti village waking me up at all hours..how do i make it stop???? pls
thru 4999 is owned by a company by the name of U.S. TELEPACIFIC CORP. http://www.telepacific.com on this web page you can call their toll free number to make a complaint. You'll likely be transferred to their legal department, but enough of these reports and they may do something about it. I believe these same people from 702-430-4443 also own 703-430-4444
. Keep results posted here... I'm interested in how it goes.
I've blocked #702-430-4444 & several other numbers.
I get satisfaction by immediatly adding these nonsense calls to my SELECTIVE CALL REJECTION list ... My phone company provides this feature with my phone service. Local #'s can be added manually ... long distance #'s can ONLY be added by following the prompts after getting the phone call. To access this feature thru my phone service I dial *60. If your phone company provides this feature, use it. Check in your phone directory under Products & Services.
Although I get nuisance calls from new #'s, I am slowly, but surely, fighting back, as I have seven #'s on my list and the frequency of new calls has diminished.
they won't let u speak to anyone & they call at least 5 times a day!
I've been called repeatedly by these morons. I can tell you it's not the real DishNetwork people. They call me twice a year to confirm my billing info and their call center is in a different state. These guys are trying to scam people by claiming to be a legit company.
If I could only find a way to get them to stop calling me.
This person has been calling on my old phone and my new phone. Received a phone call from a girl said "I'm sorry". Another time "This is Jerry, let me get to the point, I'm offering Satellite from Direct TV.." The person is likely to be making money off those call. By reselling phone number when hung up. Or trying to get your account info as in "Phishing". There are cable company that offer reward for "spot the dish."
Here is an example article: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2003/06/13/BU291570.DTL
When will the Direct TV or the government Do Not Call Registry do anything to stop this.
Sorry, forgot to cut and paste the website..

Now sure of to send this to all the phone numbers listed on this site, but one trick of the trade.. Try this website, at least you can put in the area code and the prefix, and it will tell you more about the number in question.
John Part 2 Aug 26th, 2006
I just have seen this site before, and never made any comments until now. Due to Dennis posting, I find that is a good idea. Myself I used to do Skip Tracing, and there are a lot of websites still out there if you know how to find it, to find out more about these numbers.
I just wanted to suggest to everyone that one way to stop the calls might be to contact Dish Network. While they are probably not responsible for the calls, they probably do not want their brand sullied by this fly-by-night operation, and might be able to get it stopped.
I just received the most offensive call I have ever gotten from a company purporting to represent Dish TV. I have been exasperated at the number of telemarketing calls lately and when one came saying "this is Jerry from Dish Satellite TV" I pressed 1 to get a rep and said very simply "you need to take me off your call list." The rep immediately launched into a stream of profanities. I have filed complaints with Dish and the FCC, but it appears that I am not the first. I want to encourage everyone who gets these to file through official channels to try to stop this.
Rep was extremely offensive when I told him to take me off their call list.
Interesting. My husband's girlfriend (yes you read that right) called his cel from that number. She must be in telemarketing sales, I'm sure her parents are so proud. Loser tramp.
Call me every day at least 4 times, talked and requested to be taken off list, only to be hung up on. this week, I spoke to a representative. said they work with Satellite Communications Systems and Radio shack froma national call center. Radio Shack does the installing Jerry was the TM name...as soon as I asked how he got my number, he hung up. I'm on the DNC registry, this has got to stop.
If you call the number back, and push # while the prerecorded message is playing, it beeps and lets you leave a message.
I've been giving other telemarketers the number, and then blowing into the phone and hanging up. I bet a few of them called the number trying to get me back!
Mwa ha ha.
So, call the number and push #, then leave an angry message.
Caller sounded foreign couldn't speak clearly said i was in some promotion told me my personel info clearly from the phonebook and said it was related to some holiday promotion filled out in a mall. But too bad I never filled any holiday promotions out. When I asked for full name they said Dave Sanderson which I assume is a bogus name. He refused to tell me who he was calling on behalf of and hung up
i get calls from this number and when i pick up it says "i'm sorry" and then it hangs up. If they are sorry why don't they stop calling
Thanks for the info guys. I never answered and don't know who these guys are. They called at 9:27 in the am
recorded message simply said, "I'm sorry" and hung up.
Call numerous times w/o leaving message. Called the number back and got a message directing me to the National Do Not Registry
the name on the caller id said service center. didn't answer.
Rec'd call from this number on 7/22/2006..I *69'ed to find out who my last caller was because I don't have caller id..got this number..called it but the line is always busy.
YOU NEED TO QUIT CALLING ME. I DONT WANT YOUR BUSINESS. BECAUSE IF YOU DONT QUIT I WILL REPORT YOU TO THE MANAGER. I WANT YOU TO REMOVE MY NUMBER FROM YOUR CALLING LIST. THANK YOU
Received one call this morning.
Caller ID said "Las Vegas, NV"
I answered and after a few seconds a female voice said "sorry" and then the call was disconnected.
I have added that number to the Blocked Numbers list on my VOIP service.
Thank you all for posting the warnings.
Recorded sale pitch to lower interest rate
Didn't answer. Message said something about affordable health care.
left recorded voicemail saying "if you would like to be removed from our list, please press 2" or something to that effect.
received two such voice mails today; one at around noon and one just before 8pm
i live in las vegas. iget 5 to 10 calls a day from the people returning the calls to 702-430-4444 and that is not my number. i thought someone was forwarding there calls to my number. people are getting mad at me and threating me for calling them. i have called all the phone co. and no one could help. i am told that the people making this call may be spoofing the number. look up spoofing on google. unbelieveable

Judy Robinson Jul 19th, 2006
this is 3rd call in month from them i get to operator to ask to be removed and they hang up on me. i live in a state where this company has just broke the law by calling 3 times and am filinga report with the stat attorney general's office.
Woman's voice says "I'm sorry" then hangs up
Wow! They called back AGAIN, this makes 3x since I said dont call me back/on DNC. This time today they wanted to call and make sure I wasnt paying too much for my home morgage payments. I tried to hit 1 to speak with someone, no answer. Then I called back and it goes 'Butch, can I help you', no nothing else. I told him the opt. #9 to remove from list does not work, neither it seems does speaking with someone about this. He informed me that "Missy, it sure does, I can bet on it, youngin".....what nerve.
Pre-recorded call about health insurance. Waited for the message to complete and then pressed 1, cause I was 'interested'. Once I was connected with an operator, I told them to remove me from the calling list as they called my cell phone. "I'm removing you manually right now sir!"
when calling the number back it is busy
they call every day, and no one there....
It's a fly-by-night call center, probably overseas, that uses VOIP to make calls on behalf of clients. The VOIP set-up then accesses U.S. phone lines through a cell phone in Nevada.
I wonder how their clients feel about them harrassing my wife all day . . . I plan to ask them. Fortunately, I'm in the collections business and have some amazing skiptrace tools available. I've told my wife to get as much information about who their calling on behalf of as she can. Then I'm going to do a corporate records search to find out who the officers of those companies are, and skip trace them to get their home addresses and phone numbers (usually available even if it's unlisted).
Then it's a simple matter of every time they call, I call ...
Received a phone call on July 17, 2006 at 7:30 p.m. We are on the do not call list.
I recently moved and got a new phone number. This place calls at least once a day but they hang up every time I answer or my voice mail picks up.
Recorded message said the caller was from "Mortgage Solutions," then proceeded to offer us a low-interest home loan.
caller ID - Nevada
It was on caller ID when returned from the store.
my zip 98226
Whenever I see that number 702-430-4444 show up on my caller ID I just don't answer the phone anymore. However, I work nights, so it is really annoying because they call constantly as Satellite Dish Network at least once a day, sometimes more, in the middle of my sleep time. When I used to answer it was a recorded message. They just called now, in the middle of dinner, and I'm mad because I stopped eating to see on my caller ID it was just them bothering us again.
they called my cell phone
wayne Johnosn Jul 17th, 2006
This people calling are using another company for the phone number, the company providing the service is call wildgate, after visiting www.wildgate.com I believe that they are suplying the phone service for this number, so thay might know who is it assigned to.
Found this info on whitepages.com:
(702) 430-4444 is a land line based in Las Vegas, NV
The registered service provider is SBC Telecom, Inc**.
Detailed listing information is not available.
Here's a link I found:
However, SBC is also a sub of AT&T. The link above may not be the caller. One might be receiving carrier data instead of the true caller. Someone needs to get in touch with either the Nevada State Attorney General's Office or someone who is familiar with Nevada's telecommunications authority and see what (if any) options there are.
A recording said they were from my "finance dept" and that after reviewing my payments, they could approve me for "the 30 year loan you wanted".I recently bought a house and have new Comcast & Verizon phone numbers. These people and the ones from 702-430-4444
have been calling on all three phone numbers every day, several times a day. Some are hang ups, some a recording (satellite tv, mortgage). BBB does not recognize the numbers.
Caller ID says Las Vegas, NV. I answer and a female recorded voice says "I'm sorry" and disconnects. After reading these posts...i am a bit concerned. Sounds like they are making people crazy.
Called several times with no response. Las Vegas number.
These ________'s have been calling me for the past two months. Four or five times a day.
I have voip service and I have blocked them from calling at my home. But I can see where they keep calling by checking my online phone records.
Call always have just the number.
Received a call on 7-14-06 @ 8:02 central time. Did not answer the phone. The caller ID said: Las Vegas, NV 702=430-4444. They have not called back.
Ursula Rice Jul 16th, 2006
We just moved in to our new house less than a week ago and this number has called everyday twice a day!! Today is Saturday and they still called! wtf??!! I try to block this # but I can't. I am a stay at home mom and don't need to be disturbed with petty people.
Not sure but this could be the same people as phone # 702-430-4444
Called us on 7-14 about 8:30 EST. Only said Las Vegas, NV.
Kerry on 6-30 was me also!
I haven't had this new phone number longer than a week and a half when I started to receive calls from this number,sometimes as many as 5 times a day.As I have read from others,many have had new phone service when these calls started .Who is selling this information to them,maybe your local telephone provider?
I have had multiple calls on a new phone #. I have had this number for only 2 weeks. I have asked them to remove me as I have dish network and have had it for 10 years now. The last gentleman hung up on me when I tried to discuss this with him.
The message appeared to have started and the first part seemed to be cut off. It was a life health insurance company that said how good they were and to press 1 to
takj to a representative. The message was well rehearsed or it was a tape. You couldn't stop or interrupt during the message.
I just hung up!
We got a message but didn't answer. I am sure we will get another call since we are getting many sales calls in the Atlanta area from these guys to MCI who won't stop either.
If they read this message, I want them to know that once I find them, they wished the phone was never invented.
Rcvd a recorded call for Dish Network, hung up. I dialed my husband at work and asked for him by name ("Mike"), person on the other line said, "Let me talk to Mike." I said "Put my on your do not call list." The woman kept saying, "Let me talk to Mike." I hung, up, picked up again to call my husband, the woman was still on asking, "Let me talk to Mike." I told them I was going to call the police from my cel phone if they didn't hang up. Hung up again. This time they hung up but they called again asking for Mike. I told them I was dialing the police. A few minutes later, they called back, I let the machine get it but they didn't leave a message.
I had the police come and they said there was nothing to do unless they called back again.
It looks like they are an illegal operation and it doesn't matter if you're on the Do Not Call Registry because they are operating under the radar. Still I am glad this website exists because at least I know I'm not being personally harrassed.
Regarding 1-702-430-4444 you have been warned before this is the 2nt time ive been called this week now im going to take this personally.
I will find you people and when I do im going to make a example of your business.
I get these calls all the time! Finally I answered and it was for health insurance. I hung up right away because it was just a recording. I still receive these calls a few times a week, they never leave a message. Something needs to be done!
Called three times to my cell. Twice no messge - once when I answered they hung up without saying anything.
They have called several days in a row. They left a message offering a free satelite tv system. I WON IT!! Yeah-whatever, A very chipper lady named LISA left the message.
Record message saying they are calling in response to my inquiry for insurance (which I never did). Press 1 for more info, 2 to be remove. Immediate disconnect after pressing 2. We need to castrate these SOB's!!!
Message was left on my phone to press 1 or press 2 to not receive calls. I returned call and received a busy signal
Called left no message. Called again...again no message. I called the number back to see who it was...no answered. What the heck?
702-430-4444 they call me all the time and say they want to lower my CC bills and to press "1" to talk to a real person or press "3" to be removed from the call list. I've pushed "3" several times but they still keep calling. When I push "1" to talk to a person, no one ever arrives and then I am disconnected after about 2-3 minutes.
How can we shut down these idiots? I suspect they are just calling to see what time of day you are home so they can sell the list to the people to re-elect George Bush so they know when to call for the biggest bang for the buck. Oh, wait, we have a two term limit. Well, who's next in line? Last time I vote for a Republican.
Voice message, said I am sorry and hang-up
I answered the phone & said hello 3 times, but no one answer.
I just got a digital phone last week and started getting all these calls before I even knew my own telephone number. (my old number didn't "port" because it was a "metro number". There was an article in the WashingtonPost.com online today about "VISHING". http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/07/12/AR200-607-1200
"In the new scam, which Secure Computing calls "vishing," identity thieves ask potential victims to call a phone number attached to a VoIP account, easily obtained online through services such as Skype or through retailers reselling VoIP products such as Vonage Holdings, Henry said."
I don't answer the phone if I don't recognize the number. Now I'm considering turning off the answering machine when I see an unrecognized number but I'm not sure if that will stop the calls. I can't wait until the National Do Not Call Registry kicks in but from the looks of the other comments on this page that may have no effect. I have also blocked anonymous calls. I sure hope these criminals get caught SOON. And shame on the scumbags who sold and distributed the telephone numbers. They are no better than the criminals. Read the article to get educated.
Also try Google News, typing the word vishing.
Phishing Scam Calls on VoIP Phones
Thanks for putting up this site. I hope we can figure a way to stop this.
Brand new number, one person has my number...or at least I thought....this number called yesterday and today....It just rings twice and hangs up.
When I pressed 1 for information my intent was to ask for me name to be removed from the calling list. The person who answered the phone was rude, did not let me complete my request and hung up on me. I am reporting this number to the Missouri Attorney Generals office and if the calls persist I will request them to be fined.
Caller ID = Las Vegas NV Date=July 12, 2006 time= 1811
Margaret Roach Jul 12th, 2006
Received a call on my cell phone from this number. Only the number showed. I did not answer. It left a partial voice mail opting in or out but no identifying names. Tried calling the number several times but only got a busy signal.
Answered call and prerecorded message said press 1 to be taken off our list. I did and a guy picked up and was talking "stop looking over here! B**ch! I said stop!" Then he says "how can a help you?" I asked to please take my number off this calling list and he told me to "go F myself among other not-so-nice things" HOW can we shut these people down?!
Called my cell today @ 5:30 CST - Did not leave a message as I did not pick-up (never answer calls from #'s I don't know).
Called 4 times today per Caller ID.
This number called me on July 11 2006 at 5.50pm, when told to not call back the CSR was obnoxious and rude
Stuart Carter Jul 11th, 2006
Called and did not leave message. I have seen this number in my cell phone before. I do not answer calls from numbers I don't recognize.
Had three calls in a day about 2 weeks ago, naturally, I simply hung up, after all one cannot be rude to a computer(yet.).
Then every single day for the last week(not Sunday though.. thanks for that!) I averaged out at about 29 calls a day.. all from the same number. I have spoken to no less than a dozen reps, and told them not to call ever agan. dnC order was supposedly put on my number instantly.. however... I am on call number 17 for the day already today.
Even letting them know I was ALREADY under DishTV, didn't help. if anything, it made things worse.
I'm on the national do not call registry, so I don't know why this number, and several others, still manage to get through. List must have been sold from existing cable/satellite providers, as I have service with ComCast.
Pre-recorded message offering something like refinanacing a mortgage. The voice sounds a lot like the pre-recorded male voice offering the DishTv (from this same phone number).
Just call several times per day and do not leave message. It says outside caller, or Las Vegas, NV
If anyone gets the name or address of the company, please post it. Pre-recorded sales calls are illegal under the federal TCPA and are $500 per infraction.
i received a phone call today at 6:41pm and they stated that they were from my credit card company stating that they wanted to lower my interest rate and then they hung up on me after trying to get card information. please beware!!! do not give any information by phone unless you are calling the company themselves!
, and ask to be placed on the do not call list. This is a timeshare/telemarketing group for Las Vegas.
I received a call from this number several times. A message was only left today; they said they were with cardholder services and that my interest rate could be reduced. They said that my chances would expire today, so I must call them today.
They call repeatedly, usually once every few days but sometimes more frequently. I never answer. They never leave a message.
Recorded pitch selling Dish Network. Just hung up.
It's a satelite TV company - and their staff are incompetent morons who hang up on people when they ask to be taken off their call list. I'm pressing harassment charges.
recieved this call a few days ago, my caller id had the number and NA in the bottom right corner. when i picked up theres was no immidiate answer but then i heard a noise as if someone was running a coiled phone cord along a table edge but then i heard panting and heavy breathing as if it were from an animal, as this was going on there was a crackling sound a very rapid cracking sound and the tone of the cracking and breathing would change sometimes it would sound like a tiger or lion, and then throught the cracking and breathing it was if someone was talking in slow motion tone. eventualy after a long period of time the call ended and was disconnected. each time a called back that day it was buisy but when i called at night it asked if i would like to be taken off of their calling list
Recorder message saying that they wanted to review my account, which my bank does when they are pitching something. I was then connected to some female who mumbled something and then said "peace out." Im sure that they are scamming something!
recieved a call the other day, but our phone is with "Vonage". I'm not sure how they got our number seeing as it's not listed with anybody.
This number called my cell. And left a hang up message on my voice mail. I tired to call that number, and all I gt was a busy signal. I believe that it was a telemarketer, and Iwant to tell them not to call me again.
Also, I am on the do not call list.
Monica Florez Jul 07th, 2006
Called ID says Las Vegas. Automated Voice Message says its from Cardservices. Says to press "3" to disregard but of course, it doesn't do anything. Repeated calls within minutes of each other. Aarrgh...
I had 6 calls in the last 4 days from this number, if I try to call the number back it rings busy.
2nd call from this number. The first time I answered and got a hang up. Today I was outside and didn't hear the phone, Comes up Nevada on the caller ID. Think I will call it to see what they say or don't say.
pitch about health insurance, recorded message, at end push 1 if you want more info, 2 if you want to be removed. does not allow you to push any numbers then hangs up
