long distance call to my cell phone from this number
It is obvious that this is a phishing site designed to mine personal and sensitive information. No companies ask for card numbers or run credit when they give you hundreds of dollars of equipment free. I wouldn't be surprised if this is an Al-Queda business to fund terrorism.

I don unnerstan why thes so bad. Good guys cheep TV man
I just filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and the FCC (it only took 10 min to do online). I suggest you all do the same if we want this company to stop harassing us!
Glad I found this site. I keep getting calls on my cell phone from this number. Including early this morning and it woke me up. How do I get them to stop calling?
Spam. Register for the do not call registry and report them.
This was a Florida number that came to my cell phone. The feedback already on this site was very helpful!!!
Call came in, but bad location and call dropped.When attempted to call back, no pickup.Am preparing to req my # be removed or 'eat up'/waste THEIR time on next call.
They called 3 times in one day now, no one speaks and you can't call back, Sprint does not let the call go through on my cell phone.
Received a call from this number, however, no one spoke when I answered. I tried to call the number back, however, it does not ring, it disconnects each time.
I have received 11 calls on my cell phone in the past 13 days - pretty much the same story as several other people. The phone barely even rings, I don't answer and they hang up.
Attempts to return the call have been met with immediate disconnection.
I started receiving phone calls approximately 1 week ago from this number. When I try to return the call, it simply hangs up. No ringing, nothing, just a click. I thought it very strange, so I decided to look it up on the web. I am in California, what in the world is this?
Said they were a service through North American Van Lines trying to set up cable, power, and internet at my new address...report these bastards!
Called my cell phone...didnt answer!
They have been calling me for about 2 weeks now, usually about 5 times a day anywhere from 7 in the morning to 11 at night. I've called 4 times to have me taken off the list but so far no luck.
IT DOES THE SAME THING TO ME.. IT DOESNT GIVE ME A CHANCE TO ANSWER AND WHEN I CALL BACK IT DISCONNECTS ME WITHOUT EVER RINGING. ITS REALLY WIERD.
A man (what sounded like a call center in the background) said "Mary please" and hung up before I could reply.
I get about 5 calls a day on this number. No one ever answers, usually the call drops the second I pick up. No vm is ever left when I don't answer. When I call back it doesn't even connect to ring. Today for the first time I answered and heard background noise- people talking- but still no one spoke to me. The calls have been going on for nearly a week now.
This number keeps calling my CELL PHONE DAILY!! Absolutley no connect possible when calling it (no call tone or anything.)
UPDATE: These guys called me on 5/22. They called a few times after that and I didn't answer. Calls have now stopped. My advice.....just don't answer the phone if you don't know the number
I get calls from this number several times a week. They don't leave a message. This is on my cell phone.
Have gotten four calls to my cell...all hangups when I talk. Bastards. If anyone lives near these guys please deliver a good kick to their balls for me. Thanks.
Got 5 calls in four days from this number. tried to call back, auto-disconnect after 3 seconds.
No Name, but when you call number back it hangs up. I'm getting multiple calls a day from this number
I have been receiving multiple calls from this number also. So far they have called me 3 times a day for the past week. When I answer, they hang up. If you call it back, it hangs up on me. I don't know who it is.
This is the third day in a row that they have called me. I have not picked up the phone because I do not know the number, and when I googled it, I found this site. I also tried called back, but nothing rings and no one picks up.
A man asked if Nancy was available, then there was static noice and no one was on the line. I have a private phone number so am not sure how he had my name.
The National Do Not Call List's phone number I got, that worked when I called, is 1-888-382-1222
I live in connecticut and get these annoying calls. Im sick of it too and will be contactin authorities i never even called the number back go figure how morons like that can harrass us with no recourse.
These people keep calling me! I'm very surprised to see that this is happening to others from the same phone number. Can the phone company do something??? They need to be disconnected, or better yet, prosecuted.
I have had several calls from this number I never pick it up. They don't leave a message either. This is all on my cell phone.
I get two calls a day from this number. When I answer or try to call back it sounds like a busy signal.
They keep calling and hanging up
this # called my cell, after getting a weird call from 954-657-9922
yesterday i decided not to answer this one. Area code is NE Wisconsin. Thought I'd check this out as i think its the same people as yesterday somehow
Same deal, called my cell....asked for me by name and then hung up. I've read thru all the posts on this page and I'm just wondering what the deal is....what are they getting out of this?
Some one called asked my name and hung up - real crazy
They called me and it hung up. Bastards
This was a missed call on my cell phone. I did not pick up because the number was not recognized and no message was left.
I got a call from this number today on my caller ID
Repeated calls over 2 wks. no caller ID
I have received 2 calls in the last week from these bozos. I looked up www.satellitesales.com and found the following contact info for them: 866-304-9183
. I called and spoke with a rep named Mike; told him that I am on (and have been on for a few years)the Do Not Call List and that I have never contacted them. I have no idea how they got my cell phone number! My cell phone number is never given out to anyone other than friends, my job and my university; none who would ever give it out. He said I won't receive any more calls so I guess we'll see.....
I have been receiving calls from 954-657-9922 for several days now. Calls started on 4/10/07 and have continued through 4/17/07. Along with having to deal with the actual telephone number I have been receiving numerous "Restricted" calls as well. This is very frustrating!!
Richard DuPont Apr 12th, 2007
get calls about three times a day. if i pick up, the phone on the other end hangs up.
wish someone was in charge of shutting numbers like these down.
Keep geting calls. no one speaks when I answer. I call back and it disconnects after a few sec;s.
Got a call this number showing up in the called ID. Picked up against better instincts of ignoring unknown number. No one talks! Came across this site and see this has been going on to others since > 6 months. Why have these guys not been shut down yet ??
no name call back no response calls once daily and leaves no message. john in Arizona
Take further actions. Dont call them back. Send them letters to:
3303 W. Commercial
Fort Lauderdale, FL, 33309.
Adress them to Sales Manager. Then convey to them that you no longer wish to be contacted by them, and any further attempts to defraud you will result in civil and criminal procedings
Here's what you need to do. Call the district attorneys office in Broward County Flordia. File complaints and punitive damages until they stop. As well call the Police in the Fort Lauderdale Area, file a criminal report for harassment. The more people that take action the sooner they get shout down. Thanks
I called 866-304-9183
which is satellitesales.com and requested to be put on the DNC list. We'll see if the hang-up calls end...
Reg online at the national do-not-call registry. Report the next call. Follow up with a report to the Federal Trade Commission online. Doing both ensures that a legit biz will be heavily fined for not purchasing the do-not-call list, and scammers will be shut down. Repeat harassment calls can be reported to the ph co in the city/ state the call originates from. Request a trace on the number; every time the co calls and harasses you, stay on the line with them for at least two minutes (don't participate in verbal badmouthing back and forth. Simply repeat the phrase "I am not interested/no thanks". This works great(and as a bonus irritates them :D) Next, after they hang up, call the special number provided to you from the trace dept. They will get the physical address the number is registered to. After the third call is reported, the ph company will send an officer to the address.
OH-one last piece of advice-never NEVER call any unknown number back. These companies use a program called a "dialer." It generates random ph no's and tests them by "pinging" (calls the numbers to get a ring.) This is why you do not get an actual pick up when you call back (or static). The problem with answering and/or calling back is that you have JUST VERIFIED TO THE DIALER that the guess was legit and a warm body was at the other end...
this number keeps calling me and hanging up... oklahoma
chris is a smooth talking guy.He got me good and big. To all of you out there, BE AWARE OF HIM. He might try to change the number 954-657-9922.
They did not leave a message. When I called back to find out who it was, no one picked up the phone.
I just called 1-866-304-9183
and talked to Chris about getting my number removed from thier calling list. He took my name, number, and ZIP code and told me I was removed. I am using this site as a log in case they try to call me back, in case I need to file a report.
they called my cell. I did not pick it up, because I didnt know the number. I Googled the number and found this site. I tried calling the number back, but it will not connect. I am on the Nat'l do not call list. Now to the website to report them.
I looked up the local sheriffs department for Pomano Beach, FL and I left an email message for the Sheriff. I do not know if I will get a response, I just hope something is done to fix this.
I called DishNetwork to inquire about the possibility of service without a contract. This was the biggest mistake I have ever made. They call at least 20 times a day, mostly late evening. Anyone know how to make them stop?
OMG I keep getting call from this number. Had the same thing happen, got these stupid flyers tried to get removed. Got a call the next day. Called them on their 800 number on the website, let the lady explain the "rebate" for the mailing I received. Explained that just as her outbound sales department had wasted 10 minutes of my time I just waisted hers. Also explained that if I EVER receive another call from that phone number I will be happy to file a police report for harassment and that not only will it not take 7 days for me to be removed from their list, that they WILL remove me immediately or I will press harassment charges and contact the FCC. She was rude of course. I truly figure after seeing all this that I will get more calls and will be contacting authorities.
called me on my cell at 19:24 on 2.8.07. I tried to return the call, but the call ends within a second.
I have received 4 mailings from this company "homes.org" in 2 weeks. They have now started calling me.
I received several mailers from dish network. I called and asked them to remove me from mail list. They asked for my phone number to "ensure proper removal" - a number they never had on file of course. Suspecting a scam - I gave them my dedicated fax line - and sure enough - the very next day - my fax line starts getting calls from them. This is consistent with the reports from www.dailyping.com/archive/2006/11/16/ - so what do we do? Is this not an illegal tactic?
Let go to Answering machine..They Hung up
They are from dish sattelite...I bought a package from them for Christmas for my fiance. They were very nice and couteous to me...
I wanted the Dish at my new home and even signed up for it, that's when the calls started. They have called 3-4 times per week and don't say anything when I answer. Their installer left a note on the door telling me I had too many trees & wouldn't receive a good signal, the install was canceled. I'm still getting the calls--WHY?
I;m thinking it is from football hotline number, because I call the football hotline on my phone one time to see if they really good on they pick, after that I'm getting this strange phone call. anyone share same reason.
I have been getting calls for the past month and never answered since I didn't know the number. I tried to turn them into the FCC after reading who was calling on this site. They told me I would have to speak to someone so I just received another call at 9pm! Caller said "we are returning your call" I told him fat chance it's a cell and I didn't call you and I will be turning you into the FCC now. He said "whatever B***H" and hungup. I'm amazed at how people find enjoyment in harrassment.
Caller ID showed #954-657-9922. When I answered, the lady said,"Thanks for you interest in Dish Network. Oh, I'm sorry I have the wrong number", and hung up.
I keep getting calls from this number. Why?
Ellis Penzer Nov 27th, 2006
Calls my cell phone, I call back from ceell and home and it will not let me ring it back. 11-21-2006. Please tell me how to make them stop calling my number
The first call was the night of 11/09/06 and a male left a message on our answering machine in a whisper "help mother"
The second call was at 1:01 pm no message left
I called Dishnetwork and complained but it did no good...I was going to be put on a no call list too, and they would "look" into it...
...and now they're prank calling me. If they call again, I'll file a police report. Awesome!
Amazingly, these jerks tried to assess a "list management fee" for removal from their call list.
Check it out:
I just took a harassment by phone case on this number. We will probably be looking into charges. Thanks for all the good info.
Gave me the run around for 27 mins then hung up on me!!!!! sattelitesales,com!!! This site should be disconnected, this is the worst harassment I have ever had, Called me a few cuss words when called back and said I could not talk to a manager,
I've been slammed by mail from this company ever since I subscribed to Direct TV last month; hadn't heard from them until then and I can't seem to get rid of them now. I get at least 3 mailings from them a week, so I called yesterday to have our mailing address removed; had to give #, so I gave my cell # (however, I called from my home #). Today they called home # & didn't leave a message. This is what I did & I recommend you do the same. Call 866-304-9183
(# from their website). Ask to speak with customer service rep. You'll go thru a couple menus. When you finally get the rep on the line, you'll have to give your # to have it removed. I'm on the National DNC list & stated such to the rep. She stated I'd be removed but it would take 7 business days. I told her I want that company to leave me alone. After taking my #, she hung up without even saying good-bye. Typical.
unknown number, no answer when picked up
I had called Dish Network about 2 weeks ago because my husband and I wanted to sign up for it. Well Ironically this guy Scott called me and told me that he was returning my call about my request for Dish Network. Well we went on trying to set up the account. He needed my husbands social security number because it was going to be in his name to see if we got approved. It said that he didn't have enough credit so i gave him mine to see if I did. Mine didn't either. He told me that I could get my grandma's socal security number and do it under her as a co-signer sinse she owns my house and we still have bills under her name. I didn't have her number at the time but he said that he would call me back tomorrow (today) and we could finish the setting up of the account. Well, he didn't call me when he said that he was going to and so i called the Dish Network 1800 number to see if we could get this account set up. Well when i gave her my husbands social security number to see if we got approved (we thought we would try our numbers agian just to see) the lady told me that his social security number didn't match up to his name or credit card number. And same with mine. So i hung up with her and i attempted to call the number of the guy that called me last night (954-657-9922) and the number has been disconnected. I don't know what to do. He could do some damage to us with having our social security numbers!
I have received NUMEROUS phone calls from this number in the past 3 days. Usually, I get silence, I hang up...they call right back. Finally, tonight, after I found this site...they called again. I waited until I heard someone's voice...they man proceeded to tell me he was with DISH network...I told him right then that I wished he would stop calling my home...he SHOUTED profanity at me and hung up. WOW...how am I the bitch when he has harassed me for 3 days?
They call me at all times of the day and night. No one ever says anything, and when you call them back the phone is constantly busy.
A man just called for my father, when i asked who it was he asked when he could reach him, i asked again who it was and he hung up. Clearly some kind of criminal enterprise and I will be filing a police report on them.
Multiple annoying calls...asked them to put me on there no-call list 2 weeks ago. Apparently, several 'companies' utilize this call center. One of those 'companies'tried to get a SSN#> File a compaint with the FCC.

**Dish Network Beware** I did try to set up service with them. And after they failed to show for 2 appointments, each with a 5 hour window in which I waited around and wasted my time, I called and cancelled service with them that hadn't even started yet. I was hung up on the first time and then told my deposit would be refunded in 7 - 10 days. It only took them 12 hours to take it away from account!!! Being quite upset and irritated at this point after wasting 10 hours, I told them their customer service sucks and to remove all my info from their database. I am now getting hang up calls from this number. What a mature, responsible response to their screw up.
no name on caller id, date of call 2006-10-18, called twice, hung up when I answered, tried to call back phone is answered and hung up without anyone speaking. this is my company phone.
This is satellitesales.com. They do a lot of direct mail to your home regarding DirectTV dervice and DISH network. I called the 800 number to get removed from their mailing list. I did not get through, and now I get to deall with these A**holes calling my cell phone. Apparently whatever number you use to call is logged and they think it gives them the right to continue to harass you.
Caller ID was 954-657-9922. Nicole said she was calling about our request for service. This is an agent of Dish Network. When she was told we didn't call and not to call again she hung up. This has happened several times.
They have called me now three times incredibly rude. I’m at the point now that when I see there called ID I pick up the phone and just scream FU** as loud as I can.
I have been getting lots of calls from these people. noise in background, nobody talks. caller ID says miami. I called the 800 number on their website and talked to a supervisor named Scott Solomon who said he would put me on their do not call list. he said they had 300 sales reps and didn't know about this website. I told him if he was planning on staying with the company for more than a month or if he cared, he should look into this before the FTC shuts down this boilerroom operation.
Sigurd III Oct 10th, 2006
no message/ no voice upon answer 6 calls from 10/03/06 to 10/08/06
These people call me like 10 to 15 times a day,now i am getting pranked by them,sometimes they hang up or just breath but a few minutes ago they called and when i said hello a guy said (redbull gives me wings) and hung up!
A man called stating he was from dishnetwork and was returning a call, which I never called them. There was static noise in the backround. I tried to call back it doesn't pickup.
Calls and states sales for satellite company. never requested. this people ARE CRIMINAL DO NOT GIVE ANY INFORMATION TO THEM> REPORT ANY AND ALL CALLS TO DEPT OF JUSTICE. AND BBB. CALL THIS # TO GET ADDED TO NAT'L DO NOT CALL LIST 866-290-4236
Claimed to be a company called "SatelliteSales.com". Told me that I had contacted THEM about getting satellite service, and pitched me on Dish Network service. I asked him what company he was from, and he replied, "Do you have a Credit or Debit card handy?" I told him to email me whatever he was selling, and I would look at it, at which point he hung up. Suspicious.
stupid call from Florida. Called me twice and don't talk. Background noise sounds like a store or a call center.
This is another number for dish network. They called claiming that I had called them in regards to my service. I have never had service with them and never plan to. When I told the guy that I wanted his company to stop calling, he hung up on me.
No Name, but when you callnumber back it doesn't pickup.
