Caller name: IND SUR GROUP
No one is on the other line after my standard greeting at our office. This happens after hours and on the weekend. We are charged per call through our answering service. Our monthly bill is higher, because this company is attempting to establish contact, but there's never anyone on the line when we pick up. All of our 4 separate phone lines are on the national do not call list.
Caller name: Scammers and Crooks
PEOPLE. PLEASE READ THE COMMENTS BEFORE POSTING!!!
YOU MAY THINK THAT SOMEONE IS CALLING YOUR SPECIFIC PHONE NUMBER.
THEY DID NOT. THEY DID NOT CALL YOUR NUMBER SPECIFICALLY.
YOU WERE RANDOMALLY "ROBO" CALLED WITH A SPOOFED PHONE NUMBER ON A CALLER ID FOR A SCAM COMPANY.
Important message to all those that have received a call from this number:
There are several companies engaged in scam business using auto dialers. They are ALL scam outfits. They spoof phone numbers of victims all the time. Sometimes, they spoof non-working phone numbers. The phone number you searched for is just another victim of these scumbags. I've done a lot of research of these companies. Actually, there are several affiliated companies, that try to scam innocent victims. They are either owned by the same people, or they sell their business model to other crooks.
One scam is about auto warranties. The other is about credit card debt relief. They even have scams about dish television, home alarms, carpet cleaning, political surveys, free cruises, and more. Their MO is the same. The use an auto dialer, and call thousands of random numbers. They have no regard to the do not call lists. Your demands or complaints to them are worthless. They will continue to call you.
They will not remove you from their call lists. Why? BECAUSE THEY DO NOT MAINTAIN ANY. THEY ARE CROOKS. THEY HAVE NO REGARD TO THE MANY LAWS THEY BREAK.
BEING ROBO CALLED BY A COMPUTER IS A FEDERAL CRIME. NEED WE SAY MORE?
If they call about a car warranty, the message says something as "This is the second notice on your extended vehicle warranty. Press one now to speak to a representative..." The message about credit debt mentions "This is Account Services. We are calling to lower your credit card debt. Press one now to speak to a representative..." or "The is an important call from your cardmember services. This is your Final Notice. We have been trying to contact you…." The message about carpet cleaning begins "This is Diane, would like your carpet professionally steamed cleaned?"
These crooks can be beaten! Here is an example of what happens if ALL OF US contribute to taking them down by following the steps below:
So, now you want to get these crooks. WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT THIS? If you want to stop these crooks do the following:
1) You need to speak to one of their customer service representatives. Pretend to be interested in either lowering your credit card interest rate or a car warranty, having your carpets cleaned, etc. DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY REAL INFORMATION. Do not ask how they "got" you number. (Remember, your number was randomly dialed by a computer)
Tell them you have $20,000 in credit card debt. Give them a fake credit card number, a fake name, and a fake SS#. If the call is about the auto warranty scam, tell them you own a Ferrari, or a 1937 Dodge (however, if you really own one of those two, tell them you own a Buick). Give a made up VIN number. Or tell them you have 15 rooms of beautiful plush wall to wall carpet. If they ask for your name and phone number, give them the info for the person you hate the most.
Your goal is simple. You want to engage them in friendly conversation to keep them on the phone for as long as possible. Be nice and friendly. Your goal is twofold. You want to learn as much as possible about them. They will refuse to give you a website, phone number, or maybe even a real company name. They will attempt to give you a generic name such as "Account Services," "Financial Services," or "Dealer Services." This is done for a reason, to throw you and the government off their tracks. Do not accept this. Keep pressing for info during casual conversation. You will need this (see below). Often when pressed for questions, they will hang up on you. Remember, they are instructed to do this. That is why you must not be confrontational. Be friendly and act as if you are genuinely interested.
Get the name of the company, and if you can, the city where they are located. Most of these scam companies are either in Florida, or in the Atlanta, Georgia area.
EVEN BETTER IS IF YOU CAN RECORD THE CALL.
Also, the time you take from them means them have less time to steal from someone who is unknowledgeable about their scams. They get paid to rip people off. Take away their time, and they make no money! I have kept them on the phone for up to 20 minutes! I realize that many of you do not have the time. But do you appreciate being taken advantage of?
Ever hear of Scambaiting? That is what you are doing!!! There are many entertaining web sites on this topic. For example, see:
2) Get the details of these scumbags and post it on this and every other website you can find. Use only the information you get from talking from their representatives and information you get from public sources. DO NOT POST THE NAME AND ADDRESS OF THE PERSON THAT OWNS THE PHONE NUMBER ON YOUR CALLER ID. Their numbers were spoofed and they are victims.
3) YOU MUST REPORT THEM TO THE AUTHORITIES:
FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION!
Here is the link to file a complaint: http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm
FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION:
You can also file a report with the Attorney General of your state. See the links below to see how effective this can be.
If everyone that received a call from these low-life scumbags does the same, then the combined action of thousands of us can stop these crooks from scamming innocent people out of money.
Additional information: This is what can happen if everyone were to complain!
See the following press releases to see how effective your complaints can be:
Let me tell you how I helped defeat a former scam company. Versadebt, that changed its name to VP Marketing, was scamming victims for years. I found the name of their company through conversation with one of their stupid representatives. And not only did I report them to the FCC and FTC each time, I also posted their contact information on the internet to make it easier for everyone to report.
Here is a story from Fox 5 Atlanta - WAGA that tells how WE took down VP Marketing, just one scam operation. Over 100,000 complaints were received by the FTC:
If you get the name of the company, here is how you can find their information if located in Georgia, with the search engine of the Georgia Department of State:
For example looking up VP Marketing, the former scam outfit, we see that it is owned by Jason Eyer, the dirt bag shown in the Fox 5 video. Here is how you can contact this person, courtesy of public records filed with the Georgia Department of State:
1603 Mosaic Way
Smyrna, GA 30080
And here is the most satisfying evidence of how we can defeat and destroy these scumbag scammers:
JURY CONVICTS WOMAN IN $25 MILLION NATIONWIDE TELEMARKETING FRAUD SCHEME
1) Be friendly and pretend to be interested
2) Try to get the name of the company
3) Research the name of the company using public records
4) Post the name of the company everywhere on the internet
4) Report them to the FCC, the FTC, and the state Attorney General's office
Indian sounding caller said he had some questions for me which would only take two minutes. Told him to wait as there was someone at the door, my usual response. He hung up after about two minutes.
calls at anytime, can't call back the number, never leaves a message. Irritating.
Caller name: Ind Sur Group[
I'm sure glad I found this site. I have been plagued with calls from Ind Sur Group for weeks now, and I've been wondering who these people are. i never answer, and they never leave a message, which is always a clue that it is an unwanted solicitation.
Calls from this number are constant. What a bother. We too are on the no call list but it does not seem to matter. I personally think that the government is overwhelmed with ths situation and could care less.
I have tried calling the number back each time only to receive a recorded message "the number you have called is temporarily unavailable. Please try your call again later."
They have been calling since 7a Seattle time and I have already had 2 calls again today.
Caller name: ind sur group
Two calls on my caller id from ind sur group. No message on the machine. Also, received a call from 360 474 3942 from ind sur group. According to the white pages.com it's a landline phone in WA state. I despise these type of calls. I have every known block possible on my phone and still they get through. I'd turn the ringer off, but I have an alarm system and need to have contact with the alarm company. My phone number is non published, non listed, too. These people should NOT be allowed to harass us.
Caller name: Ind Sur Group
they have a tendency like with us of calling and hanging up whenever the phone is answered by human or machine. we suspect they flee whenever in an even vague suspicion that Chuck Norris may hear of it.
Caller name: IND SUR GROUP
I receive calls all the time from several other numbers as well, but they are all coming from Washington state and the caller ID name is always IND SUR GROUP. These numbers need to be investigated and what is the purpose in doing this. I think it is abusive and harassing and against the law.
Caller name: IND SUR GROUP
i just got a call from these people and they didn't leave a message. I am on the "no call" list and have a private number i pay for. By the sounds of the comments i've read i'm in for some harassment. Why or how can't these calls be stopped????
