W N positions also uses the number 253-880-1090. When I called back someone named Joseph said he got my number from an online survey seeking employment. I told him I had not filled out a survey and asked him if he was affiliated with a university that I did apply to online. He said no then said sorry I couldn't help you today. Stupid and weird.

Somebody from W N Positions said that while I was on line, I indicated that I wanted them to call. I NEVER made any such indication. I called to see if they may have gotten my number confused with someone elses, and they were quick to get off the phone. This seemed fishy to me.

Someone from W N Positions (347-688-9985) called me and said that I had indicated on an online survey, I wanted job. I never made any such indication. Initially they sounded like a head-hunter, but then it turned out to be a coordinator for educational opportunity in my area. I moved on, but then it said they could only pay for further education if I had a GED from USA. Although I don't have a GED from US, I have a Bachelors+Masters from the US. So, I was disqualified for any potential opportunity that they would provide. Isn't that weird?

I'm in Greenville, NC, and I received a call from this number at 10:39 this morning (Jan. 16th, 2013). The man said he was with "WN Positions" and he was calling because I had "recently filled out an online survey." I said I did not do so and asked about the company, and he said it was an employment matching service and he had a few questions for me to match me with jobs as part of a free service. I said I was not interested and hung up. I know I didn't fill out any such survey, and if I had, I would not have given my personal cell number. And my number is on the National Do Not Call List. I filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.

Just received this call on my cell phone... the guy said he was responding to a Wal-Mart survey that I filled out online in request for information about employment. I promptly told this guy that he was mistaken that I would never fill out such a survey, nor did I need employement. He was very pushy and I pushed back and then hung up on the jerk. I will definitely be reporting this to the FTC. DO NOT GIVE THIS CALLER ANY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION!!!

Call from this number at 11:55AM today on my cell, same scam about a survey as mentioned in previous comments. Caller's voice sounded garbled, but understandable.

Asked if he had the wrong number because I had not filled out any surveys, obviously, and he in turn asked me for my profile information. I repeated that I had never filled anything out, and also queried as to whether or not I was talking to an actual person or just a recording. Said sorry I couldn't help you today instead of answering my question and hung up.

Please have this number's caller arrested for public harassment with all due haste.

*I also bothered to look through my phone records. This same number called me at 6:18 PM, January 16th. A woman answered after I answered "hello" several times with no initial response. She sounded very faint, and possibly a latino accent, but don't quote me on that. She asked me who was on the other end, I stated my name, then she hung up without a word. I assumed it was the usual case of a wrong number and didn't give it a second thought... until now.

Called me 1/17/13 at 11:45 am stating he was responding to an on-line employment survey I had taken. I knew I had not taken such a survey but agreed to answer a few questions. Third question in he asked me for my date of birth. I told him I was not going to answer the question. Gave me some B.S. about how all information was kept confidential however I repeated I would not answer any question requiring any personal information. He said, "OK" and hung up. I promptly googled the phone number and found (what my gut feeling was telling me) the call was an attempt to elicit personal information.

Caller name: Joseph

I just received a call from 405-896-8412, at 11:57 AM (central time), claiming to be calling from Orlando, Florida. The 405 area code is in Oklahoma, as am I. This "Joseph" started in with his spiel, claiming to work for a "W N Positions". He claimed to be calling about job opportunities, and first asked a few, non-identifying questions, like whether I or my spouse were in the military, among a couple others. When he asked for my DOB, I asked why he needed this information, and he replied that he needed it to "build my profile". When I stated that I wasn't comfortable giving out such information, without knowing more about his company, he politely thanked me and let the call go.
This "Joseph" sounded like a live person, but the way certain phrases were spoken ("okay" having been repeated a few times, in an identical tone, cadence, etc.), made me think it might be a VERY sophisticated automated voice-response system.

This appears to be some type of autmated response system, because when they ask you specific questions, the person doesn'y respond and their are delays until it trys to provide a "canned" answer. I filed a complaint with the FCC at http://www.fcc.gov/ complaints.

I live in the Atlanta Metro area, and I received a call from (678)954-0516. This Bryant told me he got my information from an online survey that I did during a job search. I have been online applying for jobs so I listened. He asked me was I a citizen of the US or legal resident. I asked him what organization was this. He told me WN Positions. Then he asked me was I over the age of 18. I answered yes and he said hello? hello? He couldn't hear me talking. I hung up and called the number back, and it says WN Positions. That's wild.

Now they are using other numbers I guess depending on where they want to make contact. I just got a call on my cell from (813) 344-3011 from a guy saying he was from W N Positions and that I had recently filled out a survey on line and indicated that I was interested in job opportunities. More than likely they are fishing in the online job boards, where many of us are uploading info for online HR applications.

Said he was with WN Positions. Said I had filled out a survey. I was like "I filled out a survey?" he was quiet, and then said "OK." Then he repeated himself. WN Positions. said he wanted to ask me a few quick questions. I said I didn't fill out a survey. Again with the "OK." I repeated myself saying, "When did I fill out a survey, and with who?" He again was quiet. Then said "OK." He repeated that he was going to help with with a career and said WN Positions, so I sat at the computer and typed it into my browser. I asked him to repeat who they were and how they got my phone number. He was very quiet. I had to look at my phone to see if he was still on the line. He eventually hung up on me. The number he called from was 413-439-1492.

Numbered called me was (201) 492-5009. Didn't leave a message. When I called back the guy on the recording indicated that the company was WM Positions, and that I had "filled out a survey while I was online." Um, nope. Said to press 9 to take my number off their list. I didn't even do that - who knows whether they are able to capture data that way? Obviously a scam.

p.s. Just reported it to the FCC Complaints Division. Back off, scammers!

Got another call today and after googling the number yesterday decided to take it just so I could play with their head. They asked me a bunch of questions like my name and I answered Lily Munster. Address: 1313 Mockingbird Lane (still hadn't caught on to what I was doing yet). Dude asked when I was born and I told him somewhere in the 1400's but I didn't remember the exact date as it was so long ago and my mind isn't as sharp as it was when I was only a few thousand years old. He asked me if I was crazy and I asked him if he was stupid.

I received a call on 2/28/13 from (406) 299-1147 on my cell phone. Same story.......I had done an online survey (not) and they were from WN Positions. They described themselves as being a free employment service designed to connect applicants with job openings. The conversation got too personal very quickly and I ended the conversation. This is just another example of American crooks preying on their fellow Americans who need jobs! Put them in jail.

Then he said well we can still gather some information from you and send you information on job openings in your area. I said no thanks I have a job and I hung up.
