User Complaints for (760) 705-8888

Caller type: Prison/Jail Collect Call

Said he'd gone to Calif for a funeral, was riding with a friend, got stopped for speeding, cops found small amount of cocaine in friend's trunk. In jail, could I send $2500 bail--

When I checked with my friend later, he knew nothing about the call, hadn't made it, wasn't in Calif. Obviously, a scam, trying to get money out of somebody.. Pretty clever delivery on phone... asked the right questions.

Caller name: Hydro Power

Caller type: Telemarketer

The call was a telemarketer (or scammer) who had my name, address and home telephone (land line) number. He wanted to talk to me about my Hydro bill. I told him I don't have one (I don't!...my house is off grid). He had a heavy accent and I could barely understand him. I told him my number is on a "do not call" list...so he was breaking the law by calling me. I'd like to report him, but the number he was calling from is apparently a Google phone number...and I when I tried *57 to trace it, a recording advised it could not be traced.

this is indeed google's number. It recently added a feature to gmail where you can make calls from your PC. Well guess what? Scammers got on to the idea and often use it to make fraudulent calls. If in doubt : block the number. Whoever called you from gmail will pick up their real phone if they really want to reach you..

I believe Verizon uses this number to rack up minutes here and there on random numbers. Let me explain. If you get a call from a number & they get your vmail, they can keep your line tied up for 5 minutes just leaving and erasing msgs. Then you call the bogus number back, using another minute of your time. Then they call again later, asking for some odd name on your voicemail. Some will call the number back to tell them they have wrong number. This is another minute or 5 of your Peak time minutes. See? They can do this sometimes to add up to lots and lots of $$$ if you go over your minutes. This is very organized and intentional. It's a big money maker. Wrong number? Somebody you don't know on your voicemail? Don't call them back. They will realize it's wrong if they are legit. Your bill will show harrassment if you never call it back.

Call did sound like someone I know but with a muffled voice. Said he'd gone to Escondido for "Steve's" funeral. Was riding with new friends, got stopped for speeding, cops found cocaine in friend's car. Could I send $2500 bail. I told him to call his mother, he said he was too embarrassed. When I called my friend later, he knew nothing about the call, a scam, trying to get money out of me. Clever delivery on phone..he baited me to ask the right questions

Passed himself off as my grandson (after I stupidly fed him that information). Similiar Sandra Nelson's call. Had been to a friend's funeral, etc. & needed $2800.00 bond. Finally wised up when some things did not fall into place, Told him i did not have that kind of money & needed to talk to his mother. Also checked with PD where he was supposedy being held. No records.

if you're calling it would help if you could identify yourself. I usually don't answer these strange numbers but was expecting a phone call from out of state about a job.

This number called twice, every time I was late to pick-up but they don't leave a message.

I think people that don't leave messages are probably not very serious.

I received a call from this number at the office, and I work for a cellphone company. The person who called said he was Joshua Smith, and wanted to activate a phone with us. Then I told him he had to come in person to prove his identity with papers and he was bugging me to send phones by the post. Not a good Idea from google, for my personnal opinion.

Got a call from this phone number at my work of all places. Keeps calling too. I'm too busy to be dealing with someone who obviously has no life. That line is for business calls only and if its held up by some looser no customer will be able to get a hold of me...and neither will the other office in the company I work for. This person really needs to get a hobby and stop messing around. No friend of mine would do this when they have my cell # and can call that or text me there.

We have received calls from this same # (legitimate calls and the callers think they are using a landline; HOWEVER, the connection every time someone calls from this # there is a long delay and you can't carry on a conversation because the caller's dialogue cuts in and out. RECOMMEND businesses who think their employees are doing something good by using this google voice or whatever it is, simply pick up the phone so we can conduct our actual business. If I didn't know better, I'd think it was a "magicjack.com" phone connection - it's horrible.

Me and my husband had done a ton of research after getting a call from this number regarding something called Planet Power Saver (Canada) It didn't sound right to me and when checking the web site they provided and then doing a search on the devise itself (it support to plug into any power out let and save 40% off your hydro bill) we found that there is complaints with the BBB saying the company is not even in business anymore and the RCMP warning people that no such device is even possible according to hydro companies otherwise would not everyone want one of these. The same number called and was not able to call back. I think whoever these people are they are trying multi scams and buyer beware. We even saw an add for Pakistani marketers for jobs associated with the same company. Thank god for the internet these days and help spreading the word on scammers that take advantage of people who are down in this economy and would love to save some money. SHAME ON YOU!!!

I received a call from these ppl 2 days ago, telling me I was eligible for a government grant to go to school. I asked to be put on the do not call list, and he yelled back at me, "but I'm from the government!" lol. I told him again to please put me on the do not call list, and he hung up on me. Then today, I got another call from the number. I answered, and the caller just repeated everything I said, back to me! It was kind of comical,actually. Lol.

This # calls my phone alot. The # is coming out of Escondido, California from what I can see. I never answer the phone when I see it. But what is confusing me is, my daughter called me from her cell and this # popped up on my caller ID. She asked me why I didn't pick up. Her # usually pops up correct.
I wonder if her phone provider has anything to do with it or if she has accidently been a victim to a scammer and they got my # from her phone or computer?

Caller type: Unknown

Got a call today at 11:50pm from a lady claiming to be working for a recording studio in CA the # was the 706 705 8888 I didn't really focus on the location or the odd digits because iam a recording artist and producer so I get calls from all over the country, this lady said she was sorry for calling so late but that in Cali. it wasnt as late(Guarantee that any studio in Cali would be Closed by 8 or 9pm.) I asked her if she had the correct # and asked if she knew who I was and She said my First and Last Name. anyway, she was saying that her studio had heard my music on the internet (didn't say what website) and that she wanted me to come out to CA to record in their studios. I told her "I live in Chicago, id rather not fly out/drive out to CA to record, she said well we do travel, then said she has family in Chicago and said shed come out to visit them and to visit me. she hung up and immediately called back same # 760, and apologized about hanging up because of her connection. I told her If her Studio would come out to Chicago we could setup up some appointments with my manager, she said that she would like to consult with her boss and supervisor and would call me back tomorrow.

Not sure if its a Scam call or if its a legitimate call?

I'd figure if they'd really want to do business with me they'd call from the studios number or personal #.
