Caller name: would not provide
Pretends to be from "state of california- business development department" wanted to know if I needed office space, ha ha, the state would do that; calls repeatedy at different hours; when I asked for a return phone number they gave me someone else's number; they apparently don't understand caller ID :).
hung up when I asked for a physical address.
Caller name: Unavailable
Claimed to be from Massachusetts Business Development. Wanted to know if we had found office space, or were planning to move in the near future. I told them we had no plans to move. They said Thank You and hung up.
I get these calls weekly now.
Caller name: Natalie
She called and identified herself as calling from the State of Washington and wanted to update her records on whether or not we have moved yet. She apologized when I told her we never have and do not plan to move. After she hung up I wondered if I should have told her ANYTHING but I see now why she's asking that question. Boy, I hope she calls me again so I can give her a piece of MY MIND!
Calls our office almost every day. says they are from California Business Development or (name a city) Business Development. All they want to do is get your information to put on a list to sell it to moving companies. I keep asking them to remove us from their list. They are always rude as h**l on top of it all.
Caller name: Washington Business Development Agency supposedly
We've been getting calls from these folks for years. They pose as a state agency and try to fish for details about when we plan to relocate or sign a new lease. I think the end game is that they eventually try to offer relocation or property search services.
Most often the callers tell me that they are a private company, but this time caller actually lied and said that they were an agency with the state. That's pretty fraudulent.
I'm seeing all the other folks who have reported calls from these guys in different states and countries. The company probably has a huge database.
Just got a call from them, posing as the State of Washington Office of Business Development. She said our company was flagged as moving, and wanted to know if we had new office space yet. I asked how we were "flagged" and she said they were updating their database, and then hung up. Got a "this call cannot be completed" recording when I tried to call it back.
Caller name: Chris Anderson
Chris Anderson (very thick ethnic accent) called saying she was from the state of Massachusetts Office of Business Development, asking if our office is still planning to move or if we've found a new location. Would not give me her number. Hung up abruptly when I told her we're not moving or looking.
Caller name: Saray?
This person just called me said she was from the Commonweath of Pennsylvania. She asked if we were still looking to move, when I told her I didn't know what she was talking about and I wasn't authorized to give out buisniess info (even though I am...) she asked me again, when I asked her why she needed to know she got all nasty with me and goes "Uggggh" and hangs up the phone...
Caller name: Brenda
They keep calling all the time, and they have no sense of humour... They pretend to call from the "Quebec Bureau of I dont remind what", and they dont have french operators. lol. In my opinion, they try to get infos on key persons like VPs, and sell that information to other companies... The only things I havent tried yet to get rid of them is fire and acid...
Caller name: Irene
I received a phone call today from that number and the caller claimed she was calling from the state of florida business development department and asked me where we were moving and whether we were still looking for a space. I asked several times whether she was calling from the government or she was trying to solicit something and she repeatedly said she was calling from the government, yet, she wouldn't give me a call back number until I questioned her honesty then she gave me 8006687700. I called that number and it was a software company not the state of florida. Is there a way to report those crooks?
Caller name: Ideal Fence
Have received several calls from this number stating that they are with the State of Illinois wanting to know if we were moving our office. Asked for call back number and was told that they were not allowed to give that number out. What can be done? They continue to call.
Caller name: Dennis Wilson from State of CA Department of Business Development
He called to ask if our business had found a new location or if would be moving soon. When I said I didnt know but I could call back with the information he repeatedly said they are only calling to update their records and cannot take incoming calls. When I reminded him that ANYBODY can "say" they are calling from the State of CA and I would like to call back with the correct information being requested he asked for my email to provide me with the call back number and kept insisting that he wanted my "estimate" move date.
Caller name: Joshua
Told me they were from design group and wanted to know if we have moved our office yet. I SEE MOST OF YOU HAVE SAID THE SAME THING. Whats the deal? What are they looking for. Somebody is paying these people. What is the gain for them?
