The number 609-208-7434 keeps calling me to my work phone from time to time. Recently 2 times within 30 minutes! I want to ask them put me in "do not call list" but there is no such option. Any one has an advice to get rid of it?

Thank you

This call came in on my cell phone. There was an automated voice saying they were calling concerning my credit card, that there was no problem, but I was eligible for a reduced interest rate. If I wanted to find out about it to press # 1, otherwise press # 2 and not become eligible for it. I pressed 1, got a live operator who wanted my name. I told her and she preceded to tell me I was eligible for reduce interest on ALL of my credit cards. This made me think...so I asked her who she was calling for, the name of the bank, and all she would say is that she was calling for my credit card companies, VISA, MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS. I just told her that I wasn't interested and hung up. ??????????? Sounded too strange to me!! ????????????

Someone needs to act like they are interested in refinancing and GET THE NAME OF THE COMPANY. Tell them that you have an adjustable rate mortgage and would like to refi $250,000 and to send something in the mail. Say that you don't want to give details or S.S. number over the phone. I've sued MANY companies for making pre-recorded calls in Small Claims Court and will gladly post info on how to do this. But we need the name of the company. By the way, the damages are $500 per call.

An autodialer called from 712-429-0375 to my T-Mobile cell phone on 03/30/07 at about 4pm. My T Mobile area code is 858. I did a number lookup at one of those pay sites and it came up as being owned by AJAX MA INC... which I already knew. They did not have an address. They said the person payed to have it blocked. You do NOT have to be on the DNC list. If an auto dialer calls your cell phone it is a violation and should be reported to the FTC.

Call to my cell with "unknown number" displayed. Answered it and got the Dorothy/mortgage recording. Pressed #1 and got a representative who said this was the "Home Loan Help Center." As soon as she figured out I was trying to get on the do not call list, she hung up.

I emailed a complaint to the FCC immediately, citing this page. Everyone else should do the same, these bums need to be shut down.

THESE CALL ARE BEING GENERATED FROM WWW.CTCLEADS.COM A Mortgage lead company!

THis company calls every cell phone number illegaly and spoofs the caler id!

THe call comes in as a girl named "Dorthy" which is a fake name? You push 1 and the cal goes into a call center which they DO NOT give you there correct phone number nor there address? If you keep asking questions they hang up on you! This needs to stop as it is a FTC Violation.. They are calling every cell number and they have no regard for the NDNC. They must abide by the FCC and TCPA rules and they seem to think they are above the rules.

There call center is located on there website www.ctcleads.com not in Oregon as they lie about!

Now for the legal news. Here is the law that is being broken. I am sure there is also wire fraud, mail fraud as well as conspiracy.
FEDERAL REGULATIONS
CFR Title 47: Telecommunication
PART 64—MISCELLANEOUS RULES RELATING TO COMMON CARRIERS 
Subpart L—Restrictions on Telemarketing, Telephone Solicitation, and Facsimile Advertising

§ 64.1200   Delivery restrictions.
(a) No person or entity may: (1) Initiate any telephone call (other than a call made for emergency purposes or made with the prior express consent of the called party) using an automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial or prerecorded voice;
(i) To any emergency telephone line, including any 911 line and any emergency line of a hospital, medical physician or service office, health care facility, poison control center, or fire protection or law enforcement agency;
(ii) To the telephone line of any guest room or patient room of a hospital, health care facility, elderly home, or similar establishment; or
(iii) To any telephone number assigned to a paging service, cellular telephone service, specialized mobile radio service, or other radio common carrier service, or any service for which the called party is charged for the call.

The second subsidy is the tariff itself.  Telephone companies participate in the NECA Access Fee Pool.  The NECA publishes a tarrif, which each company participating agrees to use, and then they split the revenues.  The termination charges for those tarrifs are a significant source of revenue for the local phone companies.  And, because they’re rural (712 area code), the charges are often steeply higher than to terminate in an urban setting.  In the major us cities, you might expect to pay 6 to 8 tenths of a cent per minute for termination.  The NECA tarrif is closer to 3 whole cents.  Arbitrage the subsidized rural rate against your costs and, presto, you’ve got a winner!
So what they are banking on is that you call the caller ID number back and presto you get DNC services. You have originated the call and the termination charges are billed back to your cellular provider. It is like you have sent the Nigerian 419 spamer your account number (you cell number ) and cash ($$ when you pay your cell phone bill) as well.
But wait there is more, now that you have identified your self as proven call back client, that is you took the independent action of calling therefore playing into their arbitrage scam you can be counted on again next time. So, you will be called again.
Who looses: T-Mobile, Verizon, Cingular, and Sprint they pass those losses (um charges) on to your phone bill.

GOD BLESS AMERICA what a scam.....

They don't want to sell you a mortgage, they want you to call then back! This is the modern day cell phone scam.
Time to unplug the USF and call the Law!
You and your phone taxes, the first part of the payoff is the US Government, it takes the Universal Service Fund (AKA “Al Gore TAX”) from you on your phone bill.  Iowa, last year, was the recipient of $86.5 million from the USF.  The USF pays for maintenance and improvements to those local telephone plants, in addition to subsidizing user fees for local residents.  The cost basis to provide service in those communities is dramatically lowered. Notice how the 712-429-0367 number is connected to a company called: VENTURE COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY L.L.C
