Caller name: Online Update
Caller type: Telemarketer
Called yesterday afternoon. Purposely answered, to see what they would say and how they handle the call.
It was a male with an Indian accent who talked very fast and went right to the "We're calling to verify your listing is accurate. Do you want to update your listing on Google?" I asked, "Are you with Google, the company?" He said, "Yes."
Of course, I said, "Sir. One, I am in-charge of the account and perform all updates. Two, your caller ID is clearly forged since it says, 'Online Update' and not 'Google.' I'm sure Google isn't in the habit of falsifying their own called ID, so we now identify you as a scammer."
He said, "No no. We're Google. We'd get in a lot of trouble for scamming. We will not call you again."
This made me laugh a little, but it is certainly NOT Google and IS a scam.
Caller type: Unknown
I received repeated calls from this number and never answered. I sent them 2 texts messages asking them to stop calling me. Just called them back and got a message saying, "Press 9 to add your number to the Do Not Call list." I pressed 9. We'll see if they call again...
Caller name: Robocaller / unlawful telemarketer / scam solar energy contractor / telecriminal
Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster
An unwanted call from this Napa VOIP number arrived today. When the answering machine picked up, the caller left no message, just dead space. Robocallers (unlawful telemarketers) do this all the time while trolling the phone lines seeking gullible schmucks to victimize.
Posters have identified the caller as Solar Solutions, a scam solar energy contractor. Whether it's solar energy, free credit cards, vacation giveaways, home improvements, or the IRS, a scam is a scam is a scam (with apologies to a famous 20th century poet).
The website www.whitepages.com describes this number as "scam or fraud." I'm soooooo surprised!!!!!
