User Complaints for (210) 280-8487
ever since i downloaded family fued for my iphone i have gotten these calls. I am reporting it to phonebusters/RCMP tomorrow. they are good at stopping unwanted calls in Canada. The more complaints filed on a number, the more serious they get.
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!!!!
Caller name: ?
This number keeps calling and I don't answer but it is some kind of telemarketing scam. It's pissing me off because if I hit a certain button by accident the phone call will be received.. I really would like it to stop
Caller name: no answer
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!!!!
someone called me from 000 000 0000 yesturday and ianswered and it went like this:
them: "who is this"
me; "umm you called me id like to know who you are before i tell you anyhting."
them: "WHO IS THIS tell me NOW"
ME; no who are you you cant just call me and ask me who i am:
them: i need to know who you are
me: bummer im not telling you cuz i dont even know who this is
them: you need to stop calling my boyfriend
them: i seen yopur number on my boyfriends calls alot of times! you better stop calling my boyfriend!
i do not call anyones boyfriend. i only call my mother, my own boyfriend, my grandparents, my sister, and my friends who are all girls. i have gotten prank calls saying dumb stuff like that befoere but it always says it is from restricted. this is weird. id like to know why i got this call.
Caller name: scammer
Thanks for the heads up! Benn getting calls from this phone number but I never pick up! Thought maybe this is my ex stalking me. Guess I know now he's not. I'll have him blocked!
This number has called my cell phone every day. I didn't answer it because it would have been long distance when they called so I googled the number to see who it was and saw all the complaints. I blocked the number so it doesn't ring anymore, but my phone still shows when the number calls. It's every day since Nov 17th, and I have never downloaded even so much as a ringtone to my phone let alone anything else. I never use internet with my phone either so I don't think it has anything to do with downloading stuff to your phone.
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!
Calls about me about three or four times daily.
Caller name: "TEXAS"
Unfortunately, this SCAM is STILL ongoing in 2015. I believe the reason why is that there are some VERY HIGH POWERED AMERICANS behind this - like CARL ROVE and the Republican Party. Saw a program on CNBC's American Greed about a SCAM VETERAN'S CHARITY that raised HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS via TELEMARKETING that ended up in the pockets of JOHN MCCAIN, GEORGE W. and CARL ROVE, among others. On top of that, the Telemarketers took a cut of **85%**, so that means THEY made BILLIONS.
Ship horn blows in ear and promises vacation. The sheer volume of calls from this number to several government of Canada cell phones is disconcerting. DFAIT specializes in NOT telling other countries what to do (diplomatic corps, you understand), but it would be interesting for the FBI to determine who is behind this unprecedented level of activity, and whether it will start to interfere with American relations with other countries if the source of said abuses cannot be determined...
Caller name: THIS IS YOUR CAPITAIN SPEAKING
TO ALL THAT WOULD LIKE TO STOP THIS ANSWER THE SURVEY QUESTIONS IT WILL TELL YOU TO PRESS 1 AT THE END AND YOU CAN TALK TO A PERSON TELL THEM TO TAKE YOU OFF THE LIST. I DID THIS IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!
HOPE THIS WAS HELPFULL!!!
Caller name: CANCELCELLPHONES
Has nothing to do with Downloading Apps My cell phone is just that a simple old stand=by for emergencies and this *&#)*(&# Number with "no name" has been calling my number for 6 months, although I NEVER answer it! It is clearly an automated system, not people calling, as it calls my number 3 or 4 times a day at intervals of every week or two. So there is no way that you can demand they do not call and/or want your name on their Do Not Call List - or even that they have to follow it, because it shows it is from outside of Canada, even if the American 'company' is doing their "telemarketing" from a Canadian Location, using an American phone number, because that is where the company apparently might have initially been located!
CANADIAN AND PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT - OFTEN ALSO OUR SERVICE PROVIDERS CAN AND MUST STOP ALLOWING AMERICAN COMPANIES TO USE OFTEN BOGUS AMERICAN & OVERSEAS PHONE NUMBERS & ADDRESSES TO GAIN FRAUDULENTLY ACCESS CANADIAN CITIZENS FOR MANY FRAUDULENT SCAMS!
OUR GOVERNMENTS & TELEPHONE PROVIDERS ARE RESPONSIBLE and MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE TO MAKE CHANGES TO STOP THESE TYPES OF CALLERS & SCAMS!
IT IS THE LAX RULES & REGULATIONS TO FOREIGN COUNTRIES THAT ALLOWS THE MAJORITY OF ILLEGAL ACTS FROM OUTSIDE OF CANADA!
THEY WILL ONLY MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT AND LAY CHARGES IF THE HARASSING CALLS ARE GENERATED FROM CANADIAN CITIZENS OR ESTABLISHMENTS! PRETTY PATHETIC IN THIS DAY AND AGE!
Calls about me about three or four times daily.
