Got a call from David B. at this number. Since I have "NOMOROBO", it rang once and so I did not answer. If it had been a legitimate call, it would have rung until I answered or the voice mail took it. If you are plagued by these nuisance calls, I suggest that you take a few minutes to sign up for NOMOROBO. You will never be bothered by robo calls again.
Someone now stole poor Dave B's number. No message, block as usual. 52 pages of complaints on this number!
Inform them immediately that their call is being forwarded of a Federal Investigation Bureau as requested from that Agency.
The next sound you hear will be a CLICK.
Write it out on a piece of paper so you will sound well informed on receiving this type phone call.
Left a truncated message asking me to push buttons on my phone. I wasn't home, so the automated voice told me they "did not receive a valid entry" and to please try again.
quiet calling-no call list
"Dave B" showed up with this number on my caller ID. No message.
Current caller ID being used by this number is Dave B
Nomorobo stopped this caller after 1 ring!
Someone called at 8:00 on a Friday night. Obviously this person does not have a life! Did not leave a message. I called the number back and it said that the number is no longer in service. Kind of funny how it is no longer in service about 10-15 seconds after they made a phone call from the same number, don't you think. I have reported this number to the proper authorities and will let them deal with it. I don't have time for immature and childish people. Not my style.
thanks for the above posting and now this number is also BLOCKED.
Will never answer numbers I don't know !!! What good is the "DO NOT CALL" list ?????????? Another joke !!!
Received a call from : 214 283 1316
Caller ID shows : " Wireless Calling "
Robo call .......No message left, I called number back within minutes.....recording states number has been
disconnected. CRIMINAL ACTIVITY at it's best.......Harassing the public by telecommunications......."They NEVER
give up. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am registered on the..."DO NOT CALL LIST"..........
OK, let's get the facts straight for all the pundits who seem to have all the answers on how to deal with these human mosquito's.
First, forget ALL the nonsense you've heard about the Do Not Call list. The Do Not Call list is extremely limited on who can/cannot be dissuaded from calling you. In fact, the majority of the businesses and organizations who sign on to abide by the DNC list are NOT the people who are pestering you daily to begin with.
Second, forget wasting your time reporting anything to the FCC. To begin with, they will not act on anything until dozens of complaints have been filed against a specific number. Problem is, these shysters use multiple numbers and routers to mass dial their junk out to the public. Moreover, your chances of having the FCC actually do anything would be akin to asking your local police department to deal with a mole problem in your yard...it-ain't gonna-happen!
Third, forget calling your congressional representatives because they were the one's who, (supposedly) saved us from this garbage. The can do absolutely nothing for you nor do they care that they can't. They know the Do Not Call law was a sham from the beginning and that it wouldn't stop anything.
So, what can you do? Here's three things:
One, buy a Panasonic KX-TG6844 or other newer phone that can block numbers. While true some Panasonic models will only allow you to block between 10-30 numbers, mine (the one I mentioned) blocks 250 numbers. The bad news is the scam artists have so many numbers it would impossible to block them all, but 250 is a good start. And if you fill up, (which will takes some time), just delete the list and start over. The good news is, it's music to your ears when a call comes in and, after one ring, bam, done.
Two, if you can't get a phone with decent call-block at least get a phone that has an answering device feature and caller ID. Then when you see ANY number that comes from a different area code, ignore it and let it ring. If the ringing bothers you, reset your phone to go to the answering device after 3 rings.Trust me, if it's from someone who has something important to you in your life, they'll leave a message...which for 95% of these cheese-eaters they won't.
Three, do not EVER call these people back. That is their bread and butter because it shows a "hit" on your phone number that someone responded, so it's time to pass that number around and keep calling. Believe it or not, many of these worthless eunuchs WANT you to get angry with them. Why? Because their objective is to get-you-on-the-line...regardless of how it's done. Save yourself the grief.
It's a lousy deal but you'll just have to chalk this crap up to our new found technologies and deal with it in the least inconvenient way possible because it is never going to stop.
Left no message.
I never answered the call from this number called Wireless Caller. If unidentified callers wont talk on my answering machine and explain who they are I don't/ wont EVER answer my phone.
Answering machines takes the call = Unidentified/solicitor Unhappy Me Happy
Rinka ma dink a dooo!
They be callin me too! I won't answer and I turns 'em in haa haa haa!
This number has been linked to Rasmussen Reports, a conservative-leaning polling group that gets a lot of coverage on Fox News, Drudge, etc. Most of the polls are bogus in that the wording of the questions is designed to elicit a specific response.
Clowns called here this evening. I don't answer, just block later. I have to laugh every time I hear the news media quoting a poll as a guide to public opinion. OK...What kind of person is at home all day long waiting to share his /her personal information with a total stranger from a possibly non-existent company with a spoofed phone number? And these 'scientific' polls should mean something ????
Do Not Call list and DNC employees are as useless as teats on a boar. My last communication with them requesting the person in charge or name and address (so I could write or email) got me an email saying I needed to submit an FOIA request. So it's a government secret as to who is in charge? More government waste and jobs for unemployed friends and family of other useless government workers.
Got a call from this # at 11:49 a.m. on this past Saturday.
Some survey having to do with newspapers, television and film. I hung up after it went any further. I don't participate in surveys/polls.
It seems this call was merely finding a live number. About 8 minutes later I got a call from "USA Alarm" (alarm scammers at it again).
This evening, at 8:47 I got a call from 214-283-1316 on May 23, 2014. I was home, but chose to not answer the phone. The caller did not leave a message. My caller ID said, " Wireless Callin." Yes, that spelling is how it showed on my caller ID. I am on the Do Not Call list and lately I'm getting several calls a week.
This number is not in service.
Call hung up when answered
Caller ID said "Survey". Wasn't about to answer it. Will be blocking via my provider. And looking into NOMOROBO :)
called at 5:45PM. Caller ID "SURVEY". Hung up when answering machine picked up. I believe the DNC law allows survey calls, like it does charity calls. Too bad the SCAM surveys and SCAM charities can still call, too. And if you had a legit survey, wouldn't your caller id indicate your real name? "Congressional Satisfaction Survey" or "Florida Homeowners Insurance Rate Satisfaction Survey" or "Internet Pop-up Ad Survey" or "Spam email satisfaction Survey" or "Spam Caller Satisfaction Survey". I'd probably answer those survey calls.
Scammers trying to steal identity and CC Numbers. Arrest, convict and prison them.
Same "POOP" different smell !!!!
All these creeps use a SPOOF numbers, not there real number!
We are wasting out time posting on this forum!!!!!!!! Nothing will happen just like listing your number on the Do-Not-Call list, N-O-T-H-I-N-G happens!!! Who knows what their real number is as they are usually calling from a fake (SPOOF) number.... I get calls all the time from new numbers as the old ones I block on my phone. Just hang up or when the want your credit card number tell then to hold on while you get it, sure. My view... How to file with the FTC.... http://www.fcc.gov/complaints
Here is how they do it, Just Google search "How to SPOOF a caller I.D. number"
How is this legal???? Go to this link, you may have to copy and paste: http://www.creditcards.com/credit-card-news/F ... _scams-1282.php
