First of all--Be careful about posting your personal identifying information on a public website. You have just rung the dinner bell for more scammers to come after you.
Second--you are not going to get anything out of these criminals. This is a criminal extortion scam operating out of India. They are making the calls utilizing VOIP and the names of legitimate firms to make it appear the calls are originating from within the US. There is NO "company" or "debt" and you will NOT be arrested. They are harvesting and/or buying consumers' personal identifying information from unscrupulous websites like the one you may have filled out an application with, and you need to do whatever you can to protect yourself. This includes: Notifying the FTC: https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/, placing fraud alerts with all three credit bureaus, notifying your bank and employer and letting these criminals know you are aware they are attempting to extort money for a non-existent debt and have alerted the authorities.
ABC News released an investigative report on this scam in June. The FTC has indicted one of its ringleaders for criminal fraud:
I have received several calls from this # and a lot of others claiming that I have borrowed money fraudulently from them and now owe them several thousand dollars, and they have upset me so badly that I was treated for a heart attack last Thursday evening. What can I get from them in the form of monetary compensation, and how long must I wait for my money? Thx, Kyle Haines

This number calls me no less then 3 times per day everyday & I am ready to just scream into the phone leave me alone!!! Sometimes I pick up the phone & press talk & then immediately just end the call as fast as I can. They still persist though??? Isn't there a place we can all report these calls to that can make them stop harassing us?
i was wondering who what was going on. thanks for the heads up!
I get calls from this number m-f a least 4 times a day. Its rediculous and I am definitely looking into filing a lawsiut.
i say we need to file a class action suit before they go bankrupt. they got me for 1500
i think we need to file a class action suit againt maxebiz. they got me for over 1500 dollars. they are a total rip off
Got a call from this number twice per day without leaving a message. So I googled this number, I always screen calls if the number looks suspcious. I dont answer period, got to figure out how to black this number!
I get 2-5 calls each day from this number. It's extremely annoying & I will not answer the phone. Sometimes I literally hit the talk button on my phone & then immediately hit the end button just so I don't have to listen to it ring. They are RELENTLESS & don't give up??? This has been happening for a minimum of 3 months now. I wish there was a way I could get them to stop or a place that I could report them too so they would have too. Anyone have any idea's. THIS IS HARASSMENT!!!
Thank you for the information for I was wondering who this nbr was from..
I talked to these folks, they are wanting me to sell their Visa/Mastercard credit card services to merchants. They said they are from Citibank??? Anyhow, it's not a business opportunity I am into and unfortunately, can't block this number. Must be a giant call center. Ignore
Call everyday, never leave a message
calling daily, do not know who this is.
I signed up for Doba now get a call from this number from time to time, annoying, I will block it!
These people call my cell multiple times every day. I never answer it, but it's starting to get really irritating having all these "missed calls" from some scam artist in Colorado.
Well funny how they found my phone number it's a computer number. Found there number through my email. Left no msg and i didn't bother to call back. Since the number was unfamiliar and left no msg.
Love those online numbers they go straight to my email address. Although, it is annoying to open the file and waste time for nothing. Hope they bust them.
You can sue telemarketers for $500 too.
We have received dozens of calls from this # to our business #. I have started a log, just since March 28th there have been 7. We never answer, but I called the # from my home phone just now and got a voice message from "Max Ebiz" or some such thing. When a class action lawsuit happens, I plan to collect $500 for EACH call I have logged. (as if that will happen)
I keep getting calls from 303-219-1924 and would like for them to stop! They never leave a message!
I get very few scam calls on my cell phone - but I got one from this number literally the day after I had plugged my phone number into an online university questionnaire; one of the universities might have been in CO. Without reading every single privacy note on every web page you just never know where your number might end up.
This call came in, after having seen this number come up many many times, and as I answered them, there was never anybody there, just a lot of people talking in the background sounds. This time I actually talked to the person, and they asked for me by name, and stated that they were with a company called "Max E-Biz", a company that will set up a website for you so that you may sell online, and avoid overcrowded auction sites such as eBay. I should have listened to the rest of the deal, but I asked him what phone numebr he was calling from, and the number he gave was different that what came up on my caller ID. I don't know what to think of it, but I am sure it was a scam, because he said the deal was worth $180... blah.... blah.... blah.... Don't get sucked in, people.....
rarararaaaaaaaa..get phone calls from this number twice a day. Once no one talks, and the other time its about a college opportunity. arrgghhh it sure does frustrate me.
This person calling is a scam artist. Kept calling me everyday at 3pm. Initially he called regarding business opportunity. When I sensed something was fishy, I hanged up. He is relentless and won't stop. Very annoying and needs to be reported.
If you let it ring long enough the voice mail picks up. It is doba.com and they are offering blah blah blah
This number has been calling me at least 5 times a day for the past month. They generally don't leave a message, and if they do it's usually "Hello? Is Steven available? Hello? <pause> Hmmmm <click>". A couple times I've heard messages that were obviously "pocket-dialed" from a cell phone (muffled background noise, I can usually make out a telemarketer in the background trying to sell something).
I have to wonder, what kind of telemarketer doesn't understand such basic concepts as voicemail and keypad locking?
My number is on the do not call list, so I will be reporting them to the FTC every time I see the number on my caller id. (I also have to wonder, what kind of telemarketer doesn't understand basic concepts like caller id?). I may also report them to my local police and theirs since (regardless of the do not call list) it is a crime to make harassing phone calls.
These nuts have called me at LEAST twice a day, EVERY day for two months now. DO NOT answer this call!
Calls about once an hour, give up...
Quit calling freak!
this number calls twice a day almost every day and never leaves a message. very annoying because they are calling on my cell and eating up my minutes
Got a phone call as well.. No message left. I believe the company name was Max E-Biz
