when I picked up I heard a pre-recorded message (good sounds quality though) there was a ship horn blaring loudly and then a female voice came on the line instructing me to answer 10 questions and I could be one of those lucky few to win a free cruise ship vacation.
I don't like cruise ship vacations, so leave me the h**l alone!
These calls are two things. First of all, your caller ID is of no use. They 'Spoof' the caller ID, what that means is they put in a bogus number that they stole from someone (you could be next if you answer your phone!) This way you can not call them back. You can read more at the link below.
Second, if you answer and get no one at the other end, it's a sequential dialer searching for active numbers. What it does is dial ALL the number in an area code or prefix. The line rings, you pick up and it has voice activated equipment that can detect when it hears a voice, be it actually you or your answering machine, it now 'knows' it has a active line. It adds it to its list, hangs up on you and progress to the next number. You phone number is worth alot of money! The computer doesn't give a hoot where you are from, they are spoofing the phone company and dialing for free!
So, what can you do about this?...NOTHING!!!! Call the local phone company or your wireless provider, ask them...some will tell you they know nothing about it, others will tell you there is nothing they can do. Pretty sad when the phone companies can't even control their own networks!!!!
It is time to SHUT THIS DOWN as it is very annoying when they call two or three time a day and continue ringing for 2 or 3 minutes. I am concerned. My cell phone provider tells me the only way for me to stop them is to change my phone number and I refuse to be harrassed into doing that. DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS NOW!!!!
