That is not how they got anyone's number sorry to say. Why would they need to buy a list? The DNC list has to be bought FYI. The illegal callers only have to plumb in a set of numbers in dialers or computers.
Please don't spreads Urbane Myth's and Legends. Knowledge is power..

That is HOW they got your number dearie
Every time I get a call like this I am so thankful, because it reminds me that if they outlaw guns only outlaws will have them! It is illegal to spam call people like me that are on the do not call list, yet they break the law anyway! So remember when they outlaw our guns only the evil will have them, and you will be standing helplessly while your children and family are?.
Received a call from this #. Caller ID: wireless caller. No message left. Am on the DNC list. Annoying.
(213) 200-1974, called my cell phone, I did not answer. Before I tried to return the call couple days later, I googled it and came up with this forum. I called this number and a voice recording says "You have reached a Verizon number that has been disconnected or is no longer in service".
Same with me...but how did they get my cell # it's on the do not call
We got a call from this number today at 7:15 pm and didn't answer. The caller ID was California. A voice mail message was left. It was a recording about a free cruise to the Bahamas after taking a short survey. Since surveys are exempt from the do no call list, this may be their way of evading the law. This number has been added to our call blocker.
I was just called by them ... OMG!
BTW - I'm a extremely rude person and need to mind my own manors!
Its helps more to file more direct complaints straight to the FTC & FCC.. Consider maybe getting a call blocking device or phone.. You can google them and many are around $60.00 or so.
Report them here..
Will everyone here please file a complaint at Donotcall.gov Just click file a complaint. This is a robocall for congratulations you won a free cruise. I am so irritated. I have my special needs grand-daughter here and she is sick, and they called at 8:30 pm and woke her up. I called information and asked who I can call about these people and they didn't know anything. I tried calling the number back because I was going to give them a piece of my mind, but it says the Verizon wireless number is disconnected or not in service. If so, how are they calling me from it. A whistle will not do any good because it is a robocall I filed a complaint on them, and if they get enough complaints they will take action.
yes it;s a scam
Nope, it's from a jack***, err Democrat! Tried to sell me on cheaper health care (that all the sudden increased my premium 750%). Then tried selling Benghazi was in response to a video (who'd believe it??? Oh that's right gullible people). Then they tried to sell me on a belief that I (working class) should give up the American dream (that I live now) of working hard, getting ahead & providing a comfortable life for my family. To start working a 30hr work week, or less, so I could live off the government subsidies. WOW! WHO would buy this? Oh I know, people that just tow whichever party line with blinders on!!! Since they're buying, now just feed the population bogus employment numbers that won't add up....already took it hook line & sinker with Obamacare, fast & furious, Benghazi... Why won't they believe that the government is here to give you crap?? Look here 7 million have signed...uhh correction 5 mill... eh hem another correction 2 million have signed up, but haven't paid ?. Isn't that the 2 million that had pre-existing conditions? Don't mention that 4 million lost coverage because of this new LAW! Hmm, law? Oh that thing the president, with a phone and a pen, has changed 37 times... Or don't mention that the healthy youth that was going to sign up are not having any part of this GOVERNMENT RUN FAILURE!! Oh I know, how bout getting on a wrong telephone# blog & politicize it! Go take your government ADD ADHC Bipolar Viagra meds!!!
WHY DID YOU ANSWER?????????????????????You just verified that your number is a valid working phone number
aNSWER only FROM NAMES OR NUMBERS THAT YOU RECOGNIZE. Do NOT CALL LIST DO NOT WORK These list must be purchased and change every second. Blocking numbers does not work as the robo scam callers have thousands of numbers and the computers call in rotation. Their numbers are blocked ao you can not call back.
When it comes to the DNC, I'm a illiterati on the subject! I haven't read it and don't know how it works. Really I should take time to read it, but probably won't.
DON'T YOU PEOPLE KNOW BY NOW THAT THE DO NOT CALL LIST IS A GOVERNMENT SCAM. The DNC list must be purchased and changes every second. 50 list for 50 states and a federal list. A guy in New York is going to call you in California to tell you that you are going to get a FREE security system, cheap dental insurance, there are burgulars in your area, give to a charity,take a survey, etc.???????????????????????????? Blocking does not work as the scammers have thousands of false numbers==set your answering machine to 2 rings. No message then it wasn't important or it was a scammer. Answer ONLY if you know the caller
Received a call on my cell from 213 200-1974. I did not recognize the number so I did
Not pick up, glad I didn't after reading all the other people's complains!!!!!
Waste of your time-They have thousands of numbers on their compuTers NEVER ANSWER IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE CALLER------ NEVER TRY TO CALL BACK.
Call says I have won a trip to the Bahamas. Obviously a scam.
"Congratulations! You've been selected to receive a free cruise to the Bahamas...!" .... **CLICK** Total spam call.
Mad in Arizona
I'm on the supposedly "No Call" list for both home and cell and I keep getting these calls in the middle of meetings. Where's the "teeth" in the "No Call" law?
LOVE THIS! Thank you. Will be using it from now on.
Got a call from these turkeys this afternoon. Blocked them and filed a complaint with the FCC.
saw this number out of LA..didn't recognize it...declined call..no message left..can only guess telemarketer.
Just got a call from this number. Didn't answer due to not recognizing the number. No message.
Caller ID "OAS P" ... MAY 2@2:13pm EDT? Call blocked after first ring by NOMOROBO.com ? If you have an Internet-based VoIP phone service that offers NOMOROBO, get signed on. It's FREE. I have Time Warner Cable.
I use a air horn. I don't receive any calls from those who have been blasted.
Tired of these irritating calls - just go to Walmart, buy a referee's whistle and keep it handy. When one of these calls come in, blow their freakin' eardrums into never, never land.
Nice of you to show your bias against the GOP, which is irrelevant. But a reverse lookup shows Verizon owns that phone number. Just an annoying marketing call.
These companies rely on the bulk of their potential victims/customers to never file a complaint with DoNotCall.gov. But it's really easy to submit a complaint; takes a minute, tops.
Anyway, 213-200-1974 called me this morning. I missed the call and they wisely didn't leave evidence/voice mail.
