I'm getting calls from these numbers NONSTOP! Calls are coming from: 619-801-8143 & 619-801-8144
. It's the SAME Scammers as 626-273-8240
and the calls are coming in at all hours of the day and night on both my home phone and my cell phone! For whatever reason, these numbers cannot seem to be blocked...
It's possibly a spoofed number though, as many of the calls from this area in Cali are actually being bounced out of India & the Phillipines through a system similar to Skype. Oh, and don't believe for a second that your Land or Cell Phone Provider can't track it back to it's ACTUAL location. That's pure B.S.! They can and will! It's just a matter of if they really want to be bothered with it & how much you pressure them to do it. Threats of legal action against them rarely work, but getting the Credit Card companies directly involved, as well as filing an actual complaint & actually seeking legal actions seems to work wonders to get them to get off their a**es to trace it back to it's place of origin.
I have since saved 619-801-8143, 619-801-8144
into my phone as TM#-DoNotAnswer with a SILENT ring tone for them so I won't get woken up at 4 AM by these stupid scammer calls. I suggest others do the same for TM numbers, if your phone has the capabilities.
(619) 801-8143 is a Celluar phone number. The Phone Company who owns this number is: DIGITCOM SERVICES, INC. The Location of the call is: San Diego, California

But "Supposedly", this number is actually owned by: TM Caller ID, LLC, Telephone Management Building, 2331 SW 5th Avenue, 1st Floor, Portland, OR 97201-6303, Toll free: 866-708-0401
But I'm willing to bet they are both in cahoots together.
In what I've read so far on this website and other places in regards to these numbers, it seems to be attempted credit card fraud scam, and trying to get as much information as you can from these scammers to report it is very necessary.
I would really like to know how they obtained my name, address, phone numbers and the last 4 digits of my DEBIT card number, as I would love to sue the company that sold said information to them.
I highly suggest reporting these calls directly to:
Also, contact the Credit Reporting Agencies directly as well:
Let them know what's happening and to place a fraud alert on your credit report. Once you place the Fraud Alert on your file, you're entitled to one FREE copy of your credit report from each of the three consumer reporting companies immediately, regardless of whether you just received your Free one for this year or not! Do NOT Pay. If they insist on money, report them directly to the FTC for attempted fraud. In the event that one of your Credit Card or Debit Card accounts shows any type of fraud, have them close the account immediately and issue you a new card and account number.
Sooner or later, if enough people complain and/or sue over these type of scams, the companies will have no choice but to act or risk losing all of their customers.
Since these types of calls have continued, I'll be filing a complaint with the BBB against all said companies involved, as well as contacting the FTC, FCC, and the Attorney General in each state to file formal complaints immediately.
