Old City of Coral Springs phone number is on fraud list

Multiple citizens throughout the nation have complained that they have received numerous calls from 954-346-1212. This used to be a City number over a year ago, but was disconnected when fraud complaints started coming in.

The caller tends to call repeadetly and hangs up. If you receive a phone call from this number, do not pick it up or call it back. Picking up or returning the phone call will validate your number. Once the number has been validated, this may lead to fraud or potential sales calls. In some cases, a live person may call back, offer you a prize and ask for personal information.

If you think you have been a victim of identity theft, please register with the National Do Not Call List at donotcall.gov or by calling 1-888-382-1222. You may also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov

This person called and asked for Kassie..I didn't recognize the voice and I have gotten calls from this number before and they just hang up. I called this number back and it said that the number had been disconnected.
 Dec 14th, 2007
DO NOT ANSWER THIS CALL, NOR MAKE NO ATTEMPT TO CALL BACK, THIS IS A VERY, VERY SLEEZY "PHISHING RING" 8 way call device or operation, specifically designed for ID THEFT..DO NOT pay any attention...and DO NOT..I repeat DO NOT phone them back. They need their heads MURDERED IN, to include the ears, nose, thorat, lips, and other key features, SO I give these PRICKS FOUR SNAPSDOWN IN A HELLISH FORATION, the FARGIN' BASTAGES....

They keep calling - usually several times a day. By the time I get to the phone it stops ringing. caller ID shows no name.
 Nov 07th, 2007
They have called me at home and now at work, the girl asked on the other line to speak to Robert and then hungup.
 Oct 31st, 2007
When answered received an automated message like Brians. I hung up and am now looking for the correct agency to report this to. Our cell phone has received several calls from 954-346-1212 and 954-905-4135. These numbers leave no message and hang up when the phone is answered. When we call back we receive a message saying that the phone number is disconnected or temporarily out of service. I'm wondering if it is the same group.
 Oct 25th, 2007
This number calls me at least 4 times a day, yesterday I answered when I was at work and asked who they are and what they want. They said they were some College crap, told them I was at work and was not interested. This # has called back again today, I picked up and hung up.... When you try calling back, it says the # is disconnected.
 Oct 23rd, 2007
I keep getting phone calls from this number and they hang up. The last time though, they left a message, and it was a woman just humming a random song. Anyone know what is going on?
 Oct 23rd, 2007

This number has called me several times in the past few days. They called my cell today and did not leave a message. I don't answer calls from unknown callers.
 Oct 17th, 2007
This # has called continously and never leaves a message. I answered a few times but no one responded and I called the number back but it said it was a disconnected # and to try again. I registered my # on the "do not call" gov list but I'm not sure it will help.

I bet its a telemarketing scam that has people call somehow stolen or intercepted nubers to see if the number is good. If it is then they compile a list and sell them to other telemarketing firms. Very easy to lose your number to these people by putting it on any internet websites
 Oct 03rd, 2007
Just started getting calls this week, but not on my cell phone. They call my work phone and they never leave a message.
 Sep 20th, 2007
called today, no message.
 Sep 14th, 2007
My caller ID says the number is from Coral Springs Florida. I am on the do not call list but they continue to call me at 10:30 EVERY MORNING I have also gotten calls from this number at 4 IN THE MORNING. This has to stop!
 Sep 10th, 2007
3 calls today so far spanning from around 10:40am to now (3:40pm). When I answer, the call ends. I have tried to call the number back but I am put on hold for longer than I can take. I have been receiving calls like this for the past week (from 954-346-1212 and 800-793-0282) and I have requested my name to be taken off their lists. They informed me they got my name from an online survey. From this ONE survey, am I going to receive calls like this forever?
 Aug 27th, 2007
do not answer these calls, companies steal cell services via these calls. Report the number to the federal do not call list as spam calls are subject to fines up to 11,000$
 Aug 01st, 2007
They call and then disconnect. Don't know who these people are.
 Jul 03rd, 2007
I have got repeated phone calls from then to my cell phone and I do have Verizon.
 Jul 03rd, 2007
Called my verizon cell. I am pretty sure this is some kind of bill collection activity, but I could be wrong.
 Jun 26th, 2007
Received another call to my cell phone from this number today. When I call back (from a land line) , I receive a "this number is no longer in service" message.

I received a new cell phone back in April or so, and ever since, have received calls from this number periodically.

I don't answer when I don't know to whom the number belongs/
 Jun 26th, 2007
Called and hung up as soon as I asked what they wanted. Blocked number via my phone service.
 Jun 25th, 2007
I was not home and they did not leave a message. About once a week this number ends up on my caller ID. It is getting really annoying

They call me up and don't leave messages. I don't answer calls from unkown callers.
 Jun 13th, 2007
Recieved 2 calls today from this number. They pose as educational assistance / carrer change. They get your number from an offer for free stuff via email. they say you have to answer some questions, like phone, name, birth even the social security number. If the SS is given thats your identity gone. These are bad guys that it seems have yet to be stopped. Law enforcement needs to act.
 May 29th, 2007

anyone know how to handle this????PLEASE HELP!

 Jan 31st, 2007
I talked to Verizon today. They said to pay attention to your phone bill. These people can use your number and clone it and rack up you minutes. Make sure you report to your phone company that this number called, so if there is a problem with your phone bill, you will not be responsible.
 Jan 30th, 2007

Ginger, Daniel
5049 Higel Ave
Sarasota, FL 34242-1525

Here is the website address-

I just realized that no one has done this so I did. And now I wished I lived in Florida.
I have a good question. *Why does it show our IP Address on these little boxes?*
 Jan 29th, 2007
The call came in I didn't answer it. Number only. Googled it and found this page and one more. http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/954-346-1212-c4202.html There was a person there claiming this is a Identity Theft Ring. Stating DO NOT ANSWER or CALL BACK this number. Is it true? I Have no Idea but I will take caution as if it is.
