02-22-2013 @ 10:16 AM, 849-963-4865, NAME NOT FOUND = When I got home, saw where this number had called. Wife said she didn't pick up. Checked answering machine, and it was off, so they couldn't leave a message if they wanted to. Internet search on AC 849 revealed this call originated in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, which means nothing but damn scammers. I've received 3-4 calls a month ago from the same area 849-963-4853
) with same Caller ID as NAME NOT FOUND. This is usually a robocall, and a woman with a very heavy accent. Like other bloggers have stated, they hand up hoping you'll call back so you can be billed astronomical long distance charges for the call. Best to just let it ring. One trick I use when I do answer is when they start talking, I hit the # key on the phone, which produces a very annoying beep. You can use short beeps, or a long one for as long as you want to hold the button down. Usually by the 3rd or 4th beep, they hang up. If it's a robocall, they'll continue to talk. In that situation, just give them the raspberry's and hand up.
