Caller type: Unknown
This # has called me 9 times since 9:47 a.m yesterday 10/6/14. It shows to be from Los Angeles, Ca. It is very annoying, as I don't answer calls when I don't know the #. I know it is not a collections call, since everything is paid up. They also are calling from other phone# such as 941-234-9105 ( Florida) and 712-432-0075 ( from Iowa) and 434-533-9028 (Virginia) and 860-453-8080 (Connecticut) 484-891-5510 (Pennsylvania) 305-602-0753 (Florida) 678-310-2804 (Georgia) 208-400-5555 (Idaho) 561-325-6195(Florida - 5 times in one day!!! ) 212-520-5499 (New York) I could go on and on, in the last 3 weeks alone..... Please can someone get behind this and put a stop to this?????
Caller name: V71116095200006
Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster
Over 30 calls in the last 10 days. The times I actually answered, dead air each time.
The number has called consecutively inside windows under 3 seconds. I can see them hitting my VOIP server, but becsuse its a case of simultaneous inbound. The first call comes through and the phone rings once then it hangs up.
The reason for it only ringing once before it hangs up, is due to there being another inbound call come in from the same number. And both drop immediately as a result.
The second call is forcing the first to drop. Their canceling each other out. And that is why the phone rings just once before it appears that the party hangs up.
Pick up the line and wait for them to disconnect. Then immediately dial *57 which does a malicious call trace and then contact your carrier.
This is best done if you actually get a voice in the other end. Hear what they have to say as they are disclosing the scam to you in the process. Give them no information whatsoever! Just let them talk and say sorry but not interested. And cover the mouthpiece so they assume you have hung up and wait till they disconnect. This is key to the ability for using *57 to flag it and so your phone carrier has what they need and the authorities can finally put an end to this!
