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.
Said they were from the Alberta government business development office and did we move recently? What is your new address? I hung up. As if the government makes calls like that - especially from a non-Alberta area code. Scammers.
Caller name: Vancouver Economic Office Council
These guys call all the time and ask if we are still planning to move. They use different business names and hang up when I ask any questions. I'm SO curious as to what their scam is!
Caller name: Natalie
Calls repeatedly for a few days, then takes a break for about six weeks, then starts over again. Identifies themselves as the Illinois State Development Authority, the Illinois State National Statistics Office and other variations. Demands to know whether my business is moving. I always request that they send me something in writing. Most recently threatened to shut my business down if I would not provide information over the phone. Hangs up if you press her.
Caller name: Missouri Business Asso
Calls all the time & when I ask to be taken off the list the hang up before you can get please out. Very annoying. Who are these people. I got the # off caller ID & when you dial it it says # can not be completed as dialed.
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: State of California Business Development
She says she's calling from the State of California Business Development Dept. Wants to know if we've found a new place for our business or if we are still looking to move. When I replied "Right, like the state of California cares if we move or not", she hung up.
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: 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: 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.
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!
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: 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?
Received several calls from this number claiming they were from the State of NJ and wanted to know if we were relocating. I said why would the state want to know that. Right! She proceeded to get very nervous and hung up. I dialed the number back and it said unable to connect to that number. Someone should do something about these people harrassing businesses.
Claimed, with an Indian accent, that they were calling from the State of AZ Commerce Department asking if we were staying in our office or moving. I was hung up on when I told them to mail my business something official to the address on our business license and we will fill it out.
