Who the hell this caller is? Calls every day and keep mum. I guess want to listen what product I don't have in my home so that they can call from some other number and can take the oder through phone. IDIOTS
I keep getting automated unsolicited voice mail calls from this number (prefixed with 91) atleast 4 to 5 times a day, at various times in the day and this is really taking on my nerves. I am not able to trace this call. Pl. help to block this call to my phone NO. 9886526255.
I forgot to mention that it was a stupid recording and they don't stop calling and leaving messages or give you a chance to opt out. I called the 1-800 number and asked to be taken off their calling list. We'll see if it works.
Hi. This Jay Moore at data link direct at 1-800-693-1949 calling about credit card balances and the minimum payments that are going up. It is imperative that you give me a call back. You now qualify for our debt reduction allowance program. Again. My name is Jay Moore and my phone number is 1-800-693-1949. It is imperative that you give me a call.
They called me and when I answered a Spanish speaking woman asked me in English if I spoke EspaÃ±ol when I replied no she said "oh sorry wrong number and hung up. Caller ID had the call coming from San Jose CA
Called on 1/2/13 at 12:13 pm pacific time, (coincidence that time of call was same as date??) and again about 7:30pm. I answered second time but nobody there. Strange because I can't seem to determine where area code 140 comes from.
We get a lot of calls from 140 numbers. I haven't kept track until now, so I don't know if it is the same one all of the time. We do not pick up and they don't leave a message.
caller was interested in buying a large item motorcycle part. Claimed to be in Australia. Claimed to have a friend in the local area that referred him. Wanted weight
I rec'd this call a few moments ago... just the number came up. No one left a msg! It didn't even come up on the phone with a 1 in front for a long distance call even though it rang with a long distance ring. I have no idea who it is calling but it is really bothering me.
We are on the Do Not Call list, have anonymous call block set, and we still get calls from these bogus, spoofed numbers almost hourly on most days from a little before 9am until shortly AFTER 9pm. I have tried to take the numbers from the caller ID and block them, but I Verizon fios only allows 10 numbers to be blocked, and these numbers change throughout the day--often by only one digit. They are usually from the same set of area codes and exchanges--about 8 different ones from the NY/NJ region, and sometimes one from FL, or an 800. The Verizon blocking feature doesn't seem to allow me to wildcard blocks of numbers. So, this is basically ineffective. I don't see the point in these calls as there is almost never anyone on the other end--even when we answer the line hangs up after a few seconds.
Said "there are problems with your account currently. It is urgent to determine if you are eligible to receive 6.9% interest rate." Press 3 to discontinue receiving messages. Press #1 to speak to a live operator. Have a good day. This called was received in Los Angeles. 11:06am
On July 8 we received a recorded message from these scammers about lowering our credit card interest rates and warning that this was to be our last call -- AS IF! I tried speaking with a live person but all she did when she came on the line was ask, while laughing non-stop, if I had over $3,000 in credit card debt. She hung up before I could say a word. It was like someone was tickling her as she was reading from her script. Yep, these are some nice 'professional' idiots who like to break the law. Because it is obviously a spoofed number with an invalid area code, all I can do is add my voice to those complaining about these scammers on www . donotcall . gov.
They have called at least 3 times this week, all different call times. What is the company name? When you are on a No Call List this is the type of company you on the list to not hear from them.
two calls in 2 days extremely rude people they keep changing the phone number they are calling from why doesn't the government find these people or put these scammers out of business???? obviously they are breaking the law calling people on the government do not cal list
They called me at 12:06pm today, left no message. All it said on my phone was 140-747-8000. I've had Bulgaria and Paraguay call me before, so I googled it hoping I could get another continent in this year. No such luck *laughs* At least I know I'm not alone =)
Received call at 5:30 pm Feb. 28, 2008. I didn't recognize the number, so I let the answering machine get it, but no message was left. The phone number looked odd so I googled it, found this site and now reporting it here. Thanks to all of you who reported, I now know not to answer - ever. Thanks!
Call received at 6:09 pm Feb 27th/08. Message stating we won a trip. Hung up as soon as I heard that....second time today it has happened. Two trips in one day...boy we must be really lucky. No caller ID displayed. The display showed Unknown Name.
they called, ran their automated spiel about my amazing opportunity (!!) I pushed nine as directed to request that my number be placed on a do not call list. when the man answered (with his horrid accent) I cut him off mid word and asked to be put on the do not call list. he said that his company does not do that! I immediately asked to be transfered to his supervisor, he sounded worried, said he would and that he was putting me on hold. the phone was immediately disconnected - NOT put on hold. I activated a trace call with my phone provider and tried to call the number back to yell at the supervisor but (surprise surprise) they do not accept incoming calls.
Got a call tonight from 140-747-8000 they said I won a trip, I asked to have my number removed from the list and they hung up on me before I could even finish, I would love to have a contact # for them.
Got one on Feb 19, 2013. Caller ID on my phone only said "out of area" but showed that number. I answered and, without trying to engage the caller, placed the phone near the speaker so that the caller could hear the news as broadcast over NPR. Doing that is a helpful way of deterring such calls without being rude or interacting with the caller.
