Sorry yall, mine was not the same number My pest was at 305-368-8857 (Florida, Miami- Dade Co area)
same antidotes. and get state or local consumer affairs offices to participate. Even local media that will do feature story using some of the numbers that individuals in that community have seen on caller ID.
I have ideas for FCC and FTC:
Offer at least a $12,000 reward for direct assistance to agency in stopping them.
Severl times more for significant, large operators.
Bet more than one skip-tracer private detective would find this VERY PROFITABLE. heh heh
On finding any location or actual persons, names as either investors, directors, managers, employees, or even their attorney involved in keeping them out of the courts,
Find out where they bank.
These people may also be involved in other more punishable crimes like money laundering.
publish names, physical locations, personal addresses, phones, email #, pictures, etc .
It would seem appropriate for FCC to go so far as to raid several of the worst ones, and obtain the info.
and have someone waiting to post on internet. I know, agencies are not supposed to give out information on ongoing investigatiions. Well, for these 5 jerks who have already been told to quit, just collect as much info as possible on case (court records, etc, and hang them on the Internet. See Ya on Facebook/Utube

I am a representative of AnswerNet, one of the companies that have been mentioned in the complaints on this website. The calls that the complainers have been receiving are NOT from our company. AnswerNet appears to be a victim of caller ID ?spoofing.? Caller ID spoofing is the ability to change the telephone number that appears on a caller ID display when they receive a phone call. Many scam artists deliberately falsify their telephone number to disguise the true identity of the calling party in an effort to present fraudulent offers of a variety of goods or services.
AnswerNet is a full service call center provider that produces telemarketing campaigns on behalf of our clients. We do not engage in direct-to-consumer calling programs for AnswerNet itself. AnswerNet follows strict FCC guidelines, and scrubs all calling lists against the National Do Not Call Registry (DNC). Additionally, our model is business-to-business only.
AnswerNet does want to assure consumers that we are doing our best to correct this situation. Please continue to contact the FCC when called by these individuals.
Should you wish to contact our corporate office about this matter, please call 800-411-5777 and you will be directed to the Communications department.
Been getting these calls for months from a bunch of numbers. I save them to the SPAM so I know not to answer next time... Also now I have a little list. It is clearly a scam or phishing attempt.
The message is always the same, about "some good news" about "lowering your rates". And then "press 1 for more information".
I have pressed one several times and tried various ways to politely ask to be removed from their list. Last time I politely asked what business they were and they said "card services" and I asked, yes but who are you affiliated with? Expecting something like "capital one" or "chase". And the answer? "Your Momma <click>". They always hang up when I ask a question.
Here is the list of numbers so far. I am reporting it for each with this same content.
Consumers submitted 208,362 complaints to the FTC regarding unsolicited telephone calls from Pacific Telecom phone numbers between the dates of between June 2012 and August 24, 2012. Over 25% of all complaints submitted to the FTC during this period were filed against Pacific Telecom phone numbers.
Also here's two other number for tmc: 818-708-0401. 818-842-3663 Ask for Dave. telephonemanagement.net
toll-free (866) 708-0401
I found out that this number belonged to John Rabbi or Will Impellizerri. For the last eight months they have been using this number. One of them called me three months ago at this number and told me to shut the f*** up because it lead to a person that was in my father's home and my father had a restraining order against the young guy that he brought over. After that I kept getting calls from him and I just didn't pick them up. My parents are trying to get them kicked out of the apartment as soon as possible.

Proof that current laws mean nothing to these scum suckers, same companies that have been sued in the past:
Write our Congress and Senate. We need CRIMINAL penalties against the companies that are profiting from these calls. Follow the money, slap them in jail, no one left to outsource to overseas boiler rooms, problem solved.
Since they are operating across borders it should become a federal felony and should be handled by the FBI under the RICO Act.
How it works:

Since they are operating across borders it should become a federal felony and should be handled by the FBI under the RICO Act.
These calls are coming from call centers in Costa Rica and India and they are using spoofed (false)
numbers, which in itself is illegal. They do cold calling for or sell the leads to numerous companies in
this country and they know that what they are doing is illegal. Tomorrow this same number may be selling Cruises, Timeshares or Security Systems but if you follow the money it usually ends up in the hands of an American LLC. Keep complaining to the FTC and FCC, and start bugging our politicians to pass laws to make it punishable in criminal court instead of handing out fines that they don't pay. Another course of action is to contact phone companies to find out why they won't block spoofed numbers. With today's technology that should be an easy thing to do, unless they are somehow profiting from the use of their systems.
Robocalls are illegal unless you have given them prior permission in writing (not worded into some small
print contract from a 3rd party) and are absolutely illegal to a cell phone. The Telephone Consumer
Protection Act permits individuals who have received certain unlawful telemarketing, such as junk faxes
or telemarketing calls, to sue the violator in state courts where they may be awarded up to $1500 for
People should continually file complaints with their Attorney Generals office and also file with:
If enough people keep complaining then maybe something will get done.
The FTC has already taken action against some of them however they just pay a small fine and are back at the same scam the next day:
I will say it again, we need CRIMINAL penalties against the companies that are profiting from these
calls. Follow the money, slap them in jail, no one left to outsource to overseas boiler rooms, problem
solved. Since they are operating across borders it should become a federal felony and should be handled by the FBI under the RICO Act.
I made this my new hobby after reading your post. Thanks for the phone number. They seem to have fixed that line not to receive calls anymore. How did you get that number in the first place? I would like to know so I might know how to track down whatever other numbers they use for incoming calls.
The lowest form of human life, worse than a used car salesman.
The calls refer to reducing an interest rate on a credit card.
On 6/21 I asked to be removed from the call list and I'm still getting calls!
That was the only time I was allowed to speak. All of the other calls,as soon as I started to speak about removing me from the list, they hang up!
the problem is they are calling you and You ARE picking up just ADD them to phone contacts and put them on the NO RINGER CALLS then they wont disturb you just look at number added name DumbA$$ Solitcitors :-) this will make the number not ring your phone New phones have APPS to make numbers permantly blocked .
i love that when they started cussing me i cussed them back and told them there full of stupid f$$kers to cuss me on the phone calling me names ni%%er was the one that pisd me off and i told them if i am your mother was a horses a$$. they hung up.
Received calls from Credit Card Service?s for the last 8 months on my mobile phone. My phones are on the DO NOT CALL LISTS. I have asked them to quit calling, I have reported them, I have made police reports. I decided to play the game since they hang up when you ask them to stop.
Had the call from the 8323773059 today. I pressed the # 1 for yes I wanted to talk to someone, when the guy got on the phone and asked if I was $5000.00 or more in debt I said yes. (I don't have any credit card debt). He then asked "Ball Park" how much debt I had. I said $385,000.00. He stated your lying Mr. (my last name). I said first of all that?s not my name and yes I was in debt that much. He got very mad and started yelling at me that it was against the law to lie about my debt.
I kept on and he kept getting madder. Seems to me if he would report me to the police I would have the info I needed for my police reports I have filed on this company for harassment. I suggest all of you to do the same. Fill them with a bunch of crap and see how mad you can get them. Make it worth their time. They want to continue to play a game; I suggest we hit the ball out of the park.
If you want information on this scam and the people behind it I recommend checking out these websites:
These people are nothing more than common criminals with with a complete disregard for the law and they have no reason to be civil.

I have now received more than 200 (I have them documented) calls from these scum sucking criminals. I have filed more than 50 complaints with the FTC, however due to the fact that they hide behind spoofed numbers, I doubt that they will ever be able to stop any of them. They ask for up front fees and charge your credit card without performing any services.
A special thanks to a reply from MGD at dslreports.com which gives great insight as well:
"Some on your list have already been the subject of FTC action, such as Roy M. Cox of Castle Rock Capital Management. Not surprisingly, many are habitual repeat offenders, and are the subject of multiple FTC actions. FTC action is grossly inadequate in these cases. The millions of unsolicited "Heather" "Rachel" et all, Card Services robo calls will not begin to subside until these criminals are charged with Federal Felonies, are convicted and subjected to significant jail time.
Civil action by the FTC against such criminals is totally ineffective. All of those involved know that they are violating FTC regulations. The FTC prohibits unsolicited calls for any kind of debt / interest rate reductions which require up front fees, period, and that is what these robo calls are about. The FTC civil actions have been nothing more than whack-a-mole interference. Which is why numerous individuals are the subject of repeated actions, despite signing prior agreements that prohibit future involvement. The FTC levies huge fines, then rescinds them based on inability to pay. The FTC settles for the minimal cash on hand, and enjoins them from future "telemarketing". The criminals sign off, then go right back to business. The entire operations are clearly criminal, intent to defraud, etc, and should be dealt with in criminal court and not by civil actions.
The banking system is also at fault here, without merchant accounts and ACH processing these criminals could not collect the scammed funds. Though the criminals use obfuscation, layered corporations, multiple bank accounts and offshore stashing, patterns of obvious fraudulent activity become apparent after a short time.
If you are interested in obtaining useful tracking information on the callers, I suggest another angle in the conversations. Act very interested in the rate reduction scam, as you have multiple high interest cards with large balances. Tell them that you don't give out card numbers in response to unsolicited calls. However, tell them that if they provide you with a verifiable number that you will then call them back and provide the info.
Since many of the operatives work on commission they will provide direct contact numbers if they believe you are serious about completing the deal. Verified return phone numbers are an excellent tool in tracking the people behind the operations.
Many of the inbound robo call numbers are spoofed, as most of the bolierhouses, both off and on shore, are using Voip SIP Trunks services. Throwaway DID numbers are also used. Some of the robocalling is operated by the end use scammers directly. Others are contract services who earn a referral fee once you are transferred to the scammers."
I tried pleading, I tried loud whistles, I tried letting the answering machine pick up. Nothing seemed to work Here is my latest attempt. I have saved the following numbers (360-529-6177, 971-220-1032, 480-982-3626) on my cell phone under the contact "BS" (for obvious reasons) with a specific ring tone. When I get a call from one of these numbers, I answer and KEEP QUIET. Hopefully, their system will interpret this as a non-working number and remove it automatically. I have received significantly fewer calls.
Where are the good hackers when we need them?
Just got this call today. I pressed one and got a male voice. He went thru his whole deal. I politely ask for his name and told him I was sorry but I missed it at the begining of the call. He told me I whould just hang up. LOL I told him I liked to know the name of the person I was talking with and that I was still interested in his offer. He told me his name was "Mr press one robot". Since he was such a smart a** our conversation took a whole new route. With each calling the others some very unpleasant names and comments about each other..lol I told him he had called the wrong number becasue I had all day to screw with him. I give it to him he stayed on longer than expected...lol After a few minutes of listening to his foul mouth I just hung up.
Definite scam, anyone that speaks to a "customer" like he did to me wouldn't be in business very long. I like messing with telemarketers and scammers.
I have received numerous calls from this company always says press one this time Antwan answered I immediately asked to speak to a supervisor he then stated " F*** off you're not speaking to a manager " and hung up on me.
Take a step back and look at the big picture. You usually can't call them back because the phone numbers they use evaporate as soon as they hand up and if they do answer, the opt out feature never works. But they're going to keep calling you and that is their only weakness. Go to Walmart or any sporting goods store. Buy a canned air horn from the boating department and set it beside your phone. Next time the robo machine picks your number, press 1 to speak to a rep and as soon as they answer try to blow their eardrums out the other side of their head. This is our only defense. I horned Rachael at Card Member Services once then I put the phone back to my ear. She said in a very angry voice "do you feel better now?" I replied, "not yet" and I horned her again then I hung up on her! What great fun. The calls will never stop but at least you have the satisfaction of knowing that when the call is over, the person who called you will be more pissed off than you are.
You don't really believe that will work do you deej?
Also report all calls to the Attorney General of Washington (State). Call 1-206-464-6686 and request a form be mailed to you. Their website sucks and costing them money gets their attention. Since the 360-529-6177 number is in the Bellingham/Seattle area, and since the number is answered, albeit by an automatic system, someone in the Bellingham/Seattle area is paying the phone bill. Note: the Attorney General is running for governor this year. If I don't get satisfaction, I plan to contact the news media in Washington State and let them know about his failures. Since everyone gets these type calls, that ought to go over big in an election year.
You said it my friend!!!
Rang unlisted mobile. Left no message
