Unauthorized call from 316-448-7305 to
my cell phone.
EXPLANATION OF THIS SCAM
I speak fluent Spanish and English, and have been called by this number a few times. yesterday, at 4:00 pm in California, I was called by it, so I decided to string them along and see what it was about.
Here is the translation of what happens:
The recorded voice in Spanish says, "Congratulations. You have just won a $1,000 prize. Please press '1' to claim your prize."
I pressed one, and was connected to an operator speaking Spanish with an Argentinean or Chilean accent. She said I had won a prize, that they had my information on the computer, and she just needed to confirm my name. I gave her a false name, and answered some other general questions (how many children do you have, etc.) She even gave me the fake name of a company, "One Destination", with the false address "825 Brickel Bay, Anaheim, CA."
After about 5 minutes, she said that my Visa card had won the drawing, and asked for the security code on the back of the card. I gave her a false number, and she asked a few more questions, eventually asking for the card number. I gave her all false information.
At the very end, she asked for my address "as it appears on my credit card statement", so she could have UPS bring my prize by within two weeks. I told her, "No problem. My address is 666, Go F*** Yourselves Street. In the fair city of 'Stop Robbing People You A**holes Because I am Calling the Cops on You Mother F***ers Right Now'."
She hung up.
I don't think they'll be calling me again.

Same here. I don't usually pick up strange number.

Everyone needs to be careful of this number...316-448-4700. I received a all on Friday August 15, 2008 at 12:07 PM. It said this is a travel related call and they needed some information from me. They said to be removed from their database press 1. Since I am taking a flight soon I thought my flight had been cancelled or changed without my knowledge...I had doubts so I called the airline company and no changes had been made. If in doubt always call the real company to make sure all trips and accounts are not changed. This call was in English the man had a deep British accent but you could tell it was a fake sounding synthesizer. Everyone be careful and let's all do our part to stop phone scams from happening to anyone else.
Same here. Call, no message left.
just called. I didn't pickup. Left me a voicemail, something in Spanish. After reading all these posts it has occurre to me that they all received the calls today.
Received a call from this number. Same as what everyone else is saying. Just hung up. We are on the National DO Not Call list. I always tell people this when we get sales calls. This was in Spanish and I just hung up. Figured it was a scam. Glad for all of your posts.
This is weird these numbers keep calling me that i find on here this is the third one i'm getting really fed up with it?
Received call from 316-448-4700 at 4:48 PST, when I answered it was a recorded message in Spanish. I put it on speakerphone in time for my Spanish speaking co-worker to decipher something about winning a prize.
