I guess the "Do Not Call List" doesn't mean a damn thing to these people.
Almost identical experience as Jan. "He states that they sell investments in the oil industry and that he got our name from an "investor" list. He does not know that there is a national do not call list." I turned them in to DoNotCall.gov, as if it'll do any good.
We list my cell no. as our home & contact no. I'm beginning to think these scam calls are somehow related to my children's college & scholarship searches.
Just got spam email with a bizarre message and figure that the message simply wants you to call the number at some high $$$$-per-minute charge rate. Ignored the message, but posting it here in case anyone else sees it.
3 days ago I received a message from 9722840600 - 972-284-0600 and I thought the call was a scam.
So without thinking, I went nuts - and called the the company and screamed at the top of my lungs.
You will never believe it... Gulf Coast Western -the oil company- was trying to make contact to approve my job application - apparently I got the job!
Anybody know how I can fix this???

A Mr. Brown called asking for my partner and when I asked who was calling he got angry and ask if I was my partner pretending to be someone else. Mr. Brown was really rude and got angry very quickly.
Received call from Anthony Daniels, who says company is "Gulf Coast Deductions" in Dallas Texas. He states that they sell investments in the oil industry and that he got our name from an "investor" list. He does not know that there is a national do not call list. I feel that this is unacceptable and disruptive so I reported him to the national do not call registry where we are registered.
Just got their call - they want money to drill a hole in the ground. Its a good way to gamble a million dollars on one throw of the coin. Heads you loose $1M and get 50K/mo until the well dies, Tails, you just loose.
