From the way these responses read, this phone number must provide a service to anyone who needs robo-calling to distribute messages to their area.

I also received a message regarding medical transcription and I do not recall applying for a job relating to this. She also said basically the same thing RZ said in the comments below. I am not sure what they said the company name was, it is hard to understand. I tried to call it back and I just get a voice mail . I believe it is spam.

I have never heard of these people and cannot find anything about this company online. I have not applied for a job, so I don't know why they would be contacting me by phone or by email.

They claim to be Wells Fargo but they have poor phone procedures and ask too many personal questions they should already know. Do not give them your account number or social security number.

This caller (a deep-voiced man with a slight drawl) left the following message on my machine: "I'm sorry. I have the wrong number."

Seems innocuous enough, however there are hundreds (possibly thousands) of complaints about this number on numerous spam-reporting sites (including here on whocalled.us). I guess I'm just glad that he wasn't trying to lower my credit card rates or tell me that I won a free cruise. :-)

home phone received a call from this number on Nov 18 at 11:51 am (Central CA)but no message. Not the first time - often with no one there. We are currently on the DO NOT CALL LIST, but it doesn't stop 15-20 people feeling very free to call us early in the morning or at dinner time and hanging up on us after 2-3 rings!

I concur with the previous that this is a robocall center. I'm writing this just as the polls are closing on election day. This call was from Congresswoman Donna Edwards, informing me that somebody was sending a false robocall message stating that Democratic Party objectives had been met and there was no need to vote. She was informing us that the objectives had NOT been met, and encouraged us to vote. She was telling the truth about the robocall with the false message -- we had received the false message moments before.

Stopped by home at lunch (Northern California) and noticed my message light blinking very fast. This one called today at 12:26pm PST but no message, probably because the recorder is FULL because I've been getting so many politcal calls. I've given up answering my phone when I'm there when it's an unidentified, toll free or unknown number, but I always check the number just to see if it's something I need to check out. I called the number back several times but it was busy every time I tried. I suppose that could mean its simply a ROBOCALL Center.

I thought I'd Google the number and I am amazed to see the variety of people that call from this number. I do have a Macy's account but it's current and has a low balance. I have neve owned a Dell and probably never will. I have also seen that it belongs to a Takhar Group (collection company) and Comcast. Is it unusual to have so many people/companies associate with ONE phone number?

I'll just be glad when election day is over and all of these recorded calls stop and I can answer my phone again without someone telling how to vote/think. I've voted every year since I was 19. I wish the politicians would worry more about getting this country back on its feet and less about "educating" me on their "opponent".

No one there... I hung out on the line for about 45 seconds before an automated message begain. It was a Dell Warranty Returns Team 'courtesy call' reminder for me to return parts (even though there was not enough time for them to get back when I returned the faulty parts the same day I rec'd replacement). This isn't normal for Dell in my experience (we do about $1M/annual business with them), I think they've hired some third party for this fiasco.

Received a single call from this number. The voicemail was a message from LifeTime Fitness, and it was for an emergency announcement for one of their facilities. I agree with whomever it was that stated this was some sort of company that handles bulk calls for various clients.
Since LifeTime is a company I do business with, there was no violation of DNC, and it was an informational, non-telemarketing call, so there was no violation of the robocall ban.

My business is part of that specialty advertising industry and i have attended those trade shows so makes sense that i would get a call.

Calls 7-10 times per day, is a collection agency for Sprint, who I used to have a wireless laptop card with. The card DOES NOT WORK IN BUILDINGS. Sprint continues to maintain that "it works in your yard" so it is good. I have spent at least 50 hours on the phone trying to CANCEL this service, they DO NOT LISTEN. They PROMISED to have a supervisor call me, but never did. They have suspended the service but have not callcelled it yet, even though I have asked them to. I have my US cellular phone teathered to my laptop and IT WORKS IN EVERY BUILDING AND EVEN UNDERGROUND IN THE LOOP. The SPRINT CARD DOES NOT WORK. I have replied with a certified letter to the collection agentcy that SPRINT HAS SENT AFTER ME, but they refuse to acknowledge that they were NEVER ABLE TO PROVIDE WORKING WI-FI in my house or various INDOOR locations. DO NOT BUY A SPRINT CARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't care what they tell you, THEY ARE LIARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

unknown....when I answered it was just a recording telling me it was an important matter regarding Macy's to call 1 800-511-3207. It did not say who it was calling or what it was in regard to. I do have a macy's credit card and I am also waiting for their furniture Store to also call me regarding a delivery. so I called them and a man answered who was a little hard to understand with his accent and the other noices on his end of the line. He asked how he could help me and I told him I did not know since they called me and told me to call his number. He said it was probably be because I had either a Macy's or Bloomingdale's account. He asked me for my phone number and my name. I told him and that is when he told me it was a courtexsy call for Macy's with probably a past due balance. he was then able to pull it up and told me my past due date and balance. it was correct because I went onto my Macy's account on my computer. he said he could take a payment over the phone, but I preferred to do it on my computer myself for security reasons since I had never been called this way. he said he would note it on the account and was very nice although it was hard to understand him!

I've received a call from this number four times now, from someone who says his name is Scott from Walmart. He says they got my application but I need to log onto a certain website so I can complete the application. I never applied at Walmart and don't know what he's talking about.

I just called the number back and there was a female voice recording saying that I could block them from calling me back if I press one. It said it would take one business day for it to take effect. There was a couple seconds delay in the recording so don't hang up if you hear silence for a second.

They got Callwave and the automated female voice said, "Fine answering machine! Thank you!"
