Received call yesterday from a foreign speaking person saying that he was with Microsoft and that my pc security was breached by an email virus and that if I called this number they could provide more information. The interesting thing was that I was at my aged father's house when the call came in on his phone. My father does not have a computer and the caller had my fathers first initial and last name associated with his number. Just an FYI

Called about either warranty or credit scam. Hard to tell because woman's voice was automated and instructions for what to do next ("press 1, stay on the line," etc.) weren't clear.

I get calls from this and sevral other numbers I suggest someone set up a computer to do a traceroute or backtrace of the number when they are called, hint give your computer the ability to answer a call to your phone that already receiving these calls. I believe that there is a virus right now spread across cell phones and thats how they are getting the number [it's just a guess but you tell me if you have a virus checker on your cell] {thats what i thought} anyway I say fight fire with fire or in this case a computer with a computer. If you track down the ip these ppl are using you can call there isp and have them trace the ppl and shut them down as well as turn them over to the police.

By the way, KP in NJ, those numbers DO look VERY familiar.... I have over ten numbers these people have called from... 402-982-0442, 208-783-0733, 202-610-3068, 818-870-5081, 866-209-7845, 626-207-9192, 810-742-6219,

This is bullsh*t!! There should be something we can do to get these people to stop calling! I was thinking about sitting down after midnight on a weekday... marking my number private and start calling these numbers back. Hopefully, if I can find a working number and someone picks up, hang up and call back in about five minutes! Give them back some of the hell they've been giving all the other hardworking people!!

Called my private workphone every day for weeks. Everytime i press 1 to speak to someone im comnected to a live rep and asked for my car make and modle. When i ask the name of the company im hungup on every time. When i give them fake info they also eventualy just hang up on me.
I started calling the numbers back but only get an automated message.
Eventualy they stopped calling but today i got a call from the same people on my cell phone.
So has my girlfriend. I think they're just war dialing every number in an area code.

 Mar 26th, 2009
have been getting calls everyday including weekends for the last month from 9 different #'s. I ask to be taken off the list but they keep calling.

Here is the name, address and number of the company responsible -
Extended Auto Warranty
corporate - 954-423-3700
sales - 954-449-2664
1868 N. University Dr. Ste. 304
Plantation, FL. 33322

Call corporate and you can talk to the secretary. I have been calling every hour to see how they like it. Lets all do it and tie up their lines!

Better yet, I filed complaints w/ the FCC and FTC. It takes a few minutes, but if they get enough complaints maybe something will be done about it, so please do it...

Auto dialing of cell phone numbers is illegal. You can add your cell phone number to the DoNotCall list and complain at http://www.ftc.gov/donotcall. But this company ignores the list.

Representative told me their company name was the National Warranty Center and they provide the warranty's for the big three auto companies.

Not really sure how they are getting some of this information. I got a call from this number on a work cell phone number that I don't give out to people (its a government number and is only used for emergencies/field visits, so it is never put on forms that usually ask for the kind of info).

Anyway, known scam. Next call they will get the obligatory "its a federal offense to solicit to this phone number, please remove it" response.
Arizona

This is a scam operation operated out of Tempe,AZ I believe. The numbers it uses are not the correct ones, but are non-working or other numbers. These change to avoid call blocking, and they use auto dialers to get any mobile or unlisted numbers. This operation also calls about other scams such as credit card and insurance. DO NOT GIVE any information to these people. They want your idenity information. You also can get charged just by entering any information like pushing a button. They will bill you through you phopne company, but it can be taken off your bill if you protest.

Unfortunately there is nothing to prevent anyone from dialing any theoretical number at random. Chances are they didn't get anyone's info but just wrote a computer program to dial every possible US number. Unfortunately I don't think there is much that can be done to stop this practice, and even the source number can be faked easily thanks to VOIP.

Claire bear is right. But my home ph # IS registered in the National Do-Not-Call list and it seems to not be doing the trick anymore, the more #'s I report, it seems the more #'s they come up with. Here's a thought, why don't they fine THE PHONE COMPANIES instead of the telemarketers. Then we'll see how fast the unwanted calls stop. Note: for years the phone companies have sold our data to them, then sold us Caller ID, then sold THEM unlisted #s then sold US anonymous call rejection, then...

I don't answer these. If I don't know them, they can take a hike. Don't waste your minutes on these idiots.

I just got one. Your car warrentee is fine, by the way.
It seems as though some poor mad idiot is either A) buying random numbers from altel, cricket, UScellular, etc. and using them to 1) steal credit card numbers off of cells 2) annoy you to the extent of worrying for your life. OR B) calling out random numbers using new hacking technology to seem like a buisness in order to 1) steal your credit card numbers 2) look good in front of his hacking buddies.
This is deffinately not a terrorist attack (as someone so kindly suggested), but bigger then a child toying with it's mother's cell (obviously). Someone should call the FBI before this gets out of hand (even more so) and stop this. Sorry, I won't, because I'm only 15 and will be mistaken for a scoundrel playing a trick.

It was a machine that said my vehicle's warranty might be expiring. I've received the same message from several other numbers calling me.
