Doing a search on http://yahoo.com or www.msn.com or http://google.com ..on all 3 engines I found horror stories about this particular company.
This call came in at 1:30am - isn't this illegal? The number is 2024076432
this number called and said the goverment picks 1000 people and gives them $8500 , all I have to do is donate $250 to have it deposited into my account..
so much for the no call list
You've got a good sense of humor.
Guess everything is more expensive on the west coast!
My caller id showed DC area also
criminals are now added to PRO call blocker version 2.0...the best $59 you will ever spend.
1200 number blocking capacity..up to 10 area codes can be blocked...also you can block criminals with no phone numbers on their caller ID.
blockers with 50 or 60 number capacity..you will run out of numbers in a couple of months.
FCC is in bed with these criminals:
1-do not answer the calls that you do not recognize.
2-search on awesome websites such as this one,for the phone number and once you see the numbers here,
3-stop wasting your time with useless reports and complaints and by a good blocker.
LOL - Great post
Have received two calls from this number which is always identified as "Veronica." Hung up both times when call not answered.
buy a call blocker
Robo calls cost nothing to these companies..they can make a million calls a day....if only very small percentage of people fall for their scam it is still profitable for them...reporting them to the FCC,signing your number up with the DNC does nothing..just buy a call blocker...they call once and get added to the blacklist..that's it..next time they call,they get blocked.
i don't answer my phone except when i know who it is,,,i have way too many fans now since i'm a known actor,,,,seems as though this all started when i got a speaking roll in the next Bruce Willis movie "The Expendables 3"...i gave my # to someone else auditioning for the part,,,obviously they were jealous...why do people hate people who win?....
Came up on my cell this am. didn't answer they didn't leave a message
Don't know who would be calling me from the D.C. area so I didn't answer and they didn't leave a message. Everyone online says it's a robo-call anyway, and I'm pretty sure they've tried to call me before from this number.
Just got a call from and hang up from 202-407-6432 looked it up in google and looks like an Escort service
Got another phone call (5:28pm) from an out-of-state number that I didn't "know" or recognize, that I have marked in my contact list as a "Telemarketer" with a silent ringtone. (This number is #47 of 53 so marked.)
(Does this mean that they are still involved in Interstate Fraud?)
Once again, they of course, left no message.
As always (especailly with numbers marked as "Telemarketer"), I didn't answer, but looked up the number here.
I'm still on the National Do-Not-Call List, and have been for over a couple of years now.
(I guess this is our government at work for us.)
Once again, I'm going to
and see if that can get the government to work for me, and stop these calls.
(Yes, I will once again go through all those steps.) [I have also bookmarked these URL's.]
We should all pile on. (I certainly am.)
I just received a call from this number. I never answer a call unless I know who it is and am glad after reading all these messages that I didn't answer this one. No message from this number was left. I tried to call back to see who it was from ready to hang up if anyone answered but it went straight to a voicemail.
idiot humans, love caller id, just don't recognize the number and it doesn't get answered, I wonder if people really answer and fall for this crap.
Some years ago, it meant something.
I even got a twenty-some dollar check from the Penna Attorney General's office as my share of a settlement against somebody I complained about.
Now, all I get from them are lame-sounding letters about how they cannot go after people who are calling from offshore, using VOIP, and so-forth.
Seems to me like challenge-response is the only solution, but would guess that cell phone carriers will be slow to offer it becase they make money on the minutes.
I just got a call from this number and didn't answer it. I did call it back using *67 and it went right to voicemail. Also said it wasn't accepting any new messages.
Irritated in California
Mr. Number blocked this call for me this morning, on my cell. Filed another complaint with DNC and FCC.

Rcvd unwanted call at 4:57pm ET from an unidentified Washington DC (202-407-6432) number. Treat this unknown number as being a Total SCAM call and do not answer or respond to this number. First call rcvd from this unidentified number was on 5 Mar 2013. I block all unwanted calls using area code 202 from ringing my private number.
Keeps call my phone 740-703-6508 make it stop!
well i too received this call, answered and got recorded mess stating i won a bahama cruise. lucky me. i hung up. thing is I answered that survey 3 months ago, won tickets but was going to cost $160 or $180? for port fees. NO THANKS. but that survey was some other 202 #. this appears to be the same thing. they ask you questions like " anyone in your home have diabetes?" and so on. said they would contact me in a few days with ticket info. that same day i started receiving calls from numerous ppl claiming to want to lower my cc interest rate, i have none. wanting to sell me med supplies.. i need none. wanting to put a sign in my yard to receive discounted security for my home.. Its crazy. they ask for the same bogus name I gave the cruise survey. I only gave this # to 3 friends... and answered that survey.. DO NOT ANSWER SURVEYS. unless you too want all thes calls.
It irritates me that we continue to receive these type of calls but I never answer them so the laugh is on them. They will never get to speak to anyone in our household. If we do not recognize the information on our caller ID we simply go on about our own business and let the answering machine take the call. Generally the caller does not leave a message and that is the second sign that the caller is truly no one we ever want contact with. Since they are ignoring the Federal Do Not Call Laws they have no business calling us and that is another sign that they are not on the up and up legally.
I keep getting calls from this number...I don't answer. I just found an app for my IPhone called CallZapper...can't wait to use it!!
g from nj
just got a call from this number too
Automated - You've won a trip to the bahamas
Got a call early in the morning from 202-407-6432 that woke me up. In my clumbsy attempt to answer the phone, I accidently hung up. It seems I was in luck, since this was just a spam call, anyway. Nothing went to my voice email. I did recently provide my phone number to 2 different websites for online orders. Now, I'm wondering if either one is the culprit. All it takes is one unscrupulous employee trying to make money on the side, selling our info, while the company is unaware. Or the company is doing it, even though both websites state that they keep all info private. My number is listed on the national "Do Not Call" registry, not that it stops crooks, anyway. Now that I found the truth about this number, thanks to this website and many helpful posters, I'll just click it away if they call again...
Steamed in Scottsdale
Received call from this number. I do a lot of business with DC types and was in a meeting. Thankfully I did not answer. No voicemail message and from the posts here I can see that it was a good thing. We should change the model of payment for phone service then hopefully these types of miscreants could be forced to pay for every call they place.
Call your cell provider and give them the number to block. If you have Verizon, they will block it for three month and then do it again
