So annoying! Just recieved a call from a lady. She could hardly speak English and told me I won a 50 dollar giftcard to target. She said I entered a contest in March and I was selected out of millions. She had an old e-mail adress and asked for my street adress. She said she would be sending it in the mail. BUT I needed to pay the 3.20 to activate the card over the phone. "Will you be paying credit or debit?" I was like I will activate the card when i recieve it in the mail. "Mam' we are a multimillion dollar company that has been chosen by target, 3.20 would not make the difference to scam you." I told her "Fifty dollars would not make the difference to me." All she wanted was my credit or debit information.
Got the same call saying they were going to house to pick up my (restarted) daughter for not paying taxes! So scared. Thank you for posting... Withdrew any money from my account and almost paid them. Read tese posts about same exact experience!
I dialed an 800 number thinking it was some company number I was trying to reach. When they answered they said I had won 100 dollars and they needed my account number thinking it was the company I gave it to them and I also asked them if it was the company I was trying to reach and they said yes they kept me on the phone switching me around to two different people I had an odd feeling about it and so I hung up and called my bank and closed my account they called me back 10 times using this 000-000-0 number and when I answered finally I told them I didnt want any thing they cursed at me and said I had closed my account I think they are scammers be careful
Pre-recorded message to lower interest rate on Discover cards. (we have no credit cards at all). Lately, we've been handing the phone to our 2 year old daughter when a telemarketer calls because apparently "Do Not Call" means nothing to these spammers. This time, my daughter did not want the phone...
I used to get those calls all the time. One day I told them I didnt have time to talk right now, but if they would give me their name and number I would call them back when I had time. They started giving me some bogus numbers then suddenly cut me off. They never called back.
IF THESE PEOPLE CALL YOUR PHONE HANG UP THEY ARE WITH THE PEOPLE FROM PHONE NUMBER (516-490-0299). I AM NOT PLAYING WITH THESE PEOPLE I HAVE CONTACTED THE POLICE AND HAVE STARTED AN INVESTIGATION IF ANYBODY HAS HAD THESE PEOPLE CALL THEM PLEASE RESPOND..
Been on the do not call registry for years, verified it. Within the past few months have been getting all sorts of scam and fraudulent phone calls. Do not call registry doesnt work when it comes to these calls. Have gotten the Microsoft fraud call (twice) first one came from a NASSAUZN01 number, then two hours after the first time of that, someone called from the same number stating they were with Verizon to upgrade DVR, another fraud call. The second Microsoft fraud call came from a California number the next week. Have gotten spoof calls, this call from 0 which you can not block as it is not a valid number, and then all sorts of listed numbers. I have reported everyone of them, all hours of the day and night, most recorded messages but several were live callers. Have also gotten the phone company involved we are getting so many and they have started blocking numbers because Ive filled up my block list and the filter anonymous doesnt catch a majority of them. Now have gotten a number from the phone company because we are getting so many of these calls, a government agency to trace the numbers. From what the phone company stated, usually even though the numbers come up from all over the country and different, they usually lead back to the same place.
This only works for hand calls. Does not work for robo calls. If you answer and its a robo call, they now know its a good number and will turn around and call you, then you can tell them to never call you again.
Didn't leave a message. Obviously spam.
I just got a call tonight, and I dont answer these 1-800 numbers because more often then not they are trying to get me to sign up for a payday loan and if I dont answer they call back and threaten me that is what happened with this number 1-802-961-6856. It is a lady named Sarah Johnson, and they want my to call back otherwise my licence will be suspended and or my wages will be garnished. do not call them back, scam scam scam.

Carol - we too get many calls from alleged Microsoft. They hang up the second I say, I did not call you. You called me. I never do business over the phone with anyone I do not call...If theres a problem with my computer, I take it to my computer professional.
this is for everyone that sees this. call your local attorney geneal office
This is Untited Healthcare, or rather a nurse contracted through UHC to call those who have their insurance and have recently been Ill or been diagnosed with a chronic illness, such as diabetes. Its actually a good program if you need help gathering information, want advice, ect. Personally, the calls annoy me, they keep you on the phone forever, my first call was over an hour! She wanted so much info, like every medication I take, why I was on certain things, then proceeded to explain to me what diabetes is and why its so important to control it, like the hospital & doctors hadnt told me anything. About a week later I received a packet full of info, recipes, ect in the mail, that part was cool, but they want to do follow up calls monthly, I have no interest in that personally.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the nations consumer protection agency, is warning consumers to be on the alert for scam artists posing as debt collectors. It may be hard to tell the difference between a legitimate debt collector and a fake one. Sometimes a fake collector may even have some of your personal information, like a bank account number. A caller may be a fake debt collector if he:is seeking payment on a debt for a loan you do not recognize;refuses to give you a mailing address or phone number;asks you for personal financial or sensitive information; orexerts high pressure to try to scare you into paying, such as threatening to have you arrested or to report you to a law enforcement agency.If you think that a caller may be a fake debt collector:Ask the caller for his name, company, street address, and telephone number. Tell the caller that you refuse to discuss any debt until you get a written validation notice. The notice must include the amount of the debt, the name of the creditor you owe, and your rights under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. If a caller refuses to give you all of this information, do not pay! Paying a fake debt collector will not always make them go away. They may make up another debt to try to get more money from you.Stop speaking with the caller. If you have the callers address, send a letter demanding that the caller stop contacting you, and keep a copy for your files. By law, real debt collectors must stop calling you if you ask them to in writing.Do not give the caller personal financial or other sensitive information. Never give out or confirm personal financial or other sensitive information like your bank account, credit card, or Social Security number unless you know whom youre dealing with. Scam artists, like fake debt collectors, can use your information to commit identity theft charging your existing credit cards, opening new credit card, checking, or savings accounts, writing fraudulent checks, or taking out loans in your name.Contact your creditor. If the debt is legitimate but you think the collector may not be contact your creditor about the calls. Share the information you have about the suspicious calls and find out who, if anyone, the creditor has authorized to collect the debt.Report the call. Contact the FTC and your state Attorney Generals office with information about suspicious callers. Many states have their own debt collection laws in addition to the federal FDCPA. Your Attorney Generals office can help you determine your rights under your states law.

Why should Visa or MasterCard be responsible for the incredible irresponsibility of this Joni person?Do you realize that her reversed charges end up costing us money in the aggregate?People need to be responsible for themselves at least a little bit. Sure, the crooks are the bad guys, but in a case like this, theyre really depending on the idiocracy to make their getaway...
Also got a message from this number claiming to be from the IRS - that they had been trying to contact us and this was their final notice - that the IRS was filing a lawsuit against us.

Just got a call from this number and then a quick disconnect. I agree, maybe phishing, or someone up to no good.

Hi Elizabeth...I to took a chance on this deal back in 2007 and purchaed one of Dan Ryans cabins. I ran across these replys by trying to find an email for him only to send him pictures of my completed project. The cabin was shipped to me down in Jewett, Tx back in 2007. They even helped me stack the logs into my barn. The cabin I chose was a 24 x 24 project that took me aprox 3 yrs to build mostly on weekends. It turned out quite well if I do say so myself. I am no carpenter and built the cabin totally by myself. I can show you, or anyone a picture who might want to see. It is a project I would probably never do again though, but it was a learning experiance. We use this cabin as a get away on our ranch, and a hunting cabin and my friends and family love it!!! I never had no problems with the deal with Dan, but was suspicious all the way. The coloring on my logs looked to be fairly new cuts and this made me think if these so called kits had been cut earlier for a resort that was going out of business they would probably be a bit weathered if these kits were laying around some where outside. I suspected and still do his operation might consist of a timber mill some where after all these years of seeing his ads in several states, but that is my opinion. As for as im concerned I got what I paid for and what he promised and happy with what I got. I also have to say these are not kits in any way, but only cut oak logs. You get so called plans of a sort that give simple instructions on a way to put these logs together and the rest is pretty much up to you. His email is evasive, and you would think he would advertise in cyber space of more detailed info and pictures of his so called log cabin kits. It would only enhance his business, but that is his business! If anyone has an email address I to would like to have it just to send him pictures of my finished project.
you are talking about a different # 609-227-4849 goes to busy signal. some other # work this way but not this.
I received a call from this number and I answered and it was Walmart Pharmacy saying my prescription was ready. Now I am receiving the calls again and its not them anymore. Im wondering if its a new thing for blocked numbers

Ya i just got this call and im with AT&T... It is an Indian person that keeps saying hello. then he hangs up. One other thing that happens is they call...and waits...and waits...then says goodbye in some kind of recording. :/
