Thay call but leave no message# is called cubs 415-344-1700
Idiots keep calling me; I never answer unknown number, but it is still annoying.
I'm a registered user at Tech Republic and also get these calls (got another one today which I didn't answer). They have some great content but the daily newsletters and frequent marketing calls are annoying.
Perhaps used in conjunction with the HEARTBLEED bug in Internet Explorer. Don't click on any links sent to you ! ! !
Called me today. Didn't answer, no message.
Never a message.
They call multiple times a day, asking to confirm my email address so they can send some white papers. The crazy thing is, they already have my email! So why do they insist on verifying it every time when they already know it? It's as if someone told them they can only send these if the caller approves it. Very annoying & disruptive but I have clicked on a white paper and it was legit, no security issues. Still, this is frustrating and has to stop!
Obviously a 3rd party company trying to reach a former occupant of my job; I've dealt with idiots like this before.
Asked who was calling:.... HP...... Gee, I told you people last year when you called that <prior occupant> no longer worked here. ...What's my name and am I her replacement? .... That's irrelevant. Remove name and phone #. ....<hangup>
Called my work number; no callerID, left no message.
Caller ID showed 415-344-1700. I did not answer, no message was left.
Called and asked for Patti Kim?
Obvious nonsensical calls from the scam/fraud devil worshippers. Listed to CNET Networks, Inc 235-2nd St San Francisco, CA 95105 Also phone: 415-344-2000. Supposedly a publisher of technical data. Very unprofessional and annoying. They also peddle other schemes, as part of an ever-changing menu of frauds and scams. A pox on them. In the recent past, they have also used other numbers, which come out as non-working or out of service as well, due to not being issued by a legitimate, licensed common carrier (i.e., a real FCC-licensed telephone company). More calls grouped into the totality of nuisance, fraud, scam calls. It is assumed that all improperly or incompletely identified numbers are from the increasing number of scams, frauds, tie-lines, etc. This is why everyone must contact their elected reps in DC to demand that they significantly strengthen the DNC laws, providing extremely severe dollar and prison sentences for violators, and give more strength to the FTC. This is an opportunity for Congress to actually do something useful for the country, not just pass gas and throw spitballs at each other. Any business must be properly identified with their legal name on Caller Id, not hide behind Not Available, Private, Unavailable, etc. It is time to ban any kind of solicitation call, whether telemarketer, charitable, political, survey, opinion poll or whatever, plus outlaw any use of tie lines, robo-callers or use of numbers not issued by a legitimate, FCC licensed common carrier (telephone company). You can be assured that funds donated or authorized over the phone will mostly go into the pockets of the organizers, not to the charity or political campaign, or intended purpose, along with a $10 donation showing up as $100s in charges. Never give a credit card number or any personal data to anyone over the phone. There must be a new scam and fraud being generated every second out there. We need call control, not gun control!
This is a well known con being used by the Russian mob in NY. They BOUGHT your phone number from some scumbag
outfit like AARP, who are the most notorious purveyors of your personal information. If you don't believe me, join the AARP
and suddenly as if by magic, you'll get every scammer and scumbag in the world calling you around the clock. You'll be wading ankle-deep in junk mail on a daily basis and you'll get to detest owning a phone at all. Thanks AARP, just what we all need, more complete crap in our lives.
I will not pick up
Everytime they call me, it's Tech Republic looking to send a White Paper and it's a legitimate document, not a virus. The strange thing is that they already have my email address so why do they need to call me, why don't they just send it?
Only problem: This site DOES NOT SHUT DOWN NUMBERS!
Only way to do that is go to: http://www.fcc.gov/complaints or https://www.donotcall.gov and file a complaint.
You can only do that if your # already has been on the do not call registry for over 30 days.
OR, if your "cell phone" got an "AUTOMATED/ROBOTIC" call, even if you are not on the registry - because that was made illegal, due to the fact that the "called party" (you) get charged; so, "robo-callers" could potentialy "bankrupt" you by having their robots call over and over and over - then your cell company charges you for all those calls/minutes.
The company/person making the call will be "fined" some $$ amount (not sure the amount), for not complying with the do not call policy (back in the day, I had read it could be as much as $11,000 per day, per incident - not sure if that amount is true).
Got a call from this number and the person said they were from Google and wanted to send me a Webinar. Then wanted to confirm personal information.

I did not answer and no voicemail left.
I will not answer.
None left. They are persistent.
Didn't answer. Best course of action or the one that will end the calls is to say they have the wrong number it sounds llike to me.
It is some kind of phising scam, or they just have people verifying information to improve integrity of a valueable list of some sort.
Seems we might all be in similiar industries based on the replies.
Crazy to imagine where the calls are being made from and wtf these people are up to and I am a digital being, and it's beyond me.
Maybe I will just give them a new made up email that has no activity to see what kind of presents I get LOL.
It's possible the phishing starts with a call. After veryfying an email and getting an open on any email it is feasible that someone could get your address and match all the data abd steal your identity. It's a long road and just a conspiracy theory on my part. Then again, I f*** around with E.Eu hackee types. So I think this long a** message is the last I'll pursue it.
Wrong email it is LOL
Technology is a blessing and and a curse in every form. Stay safe. Lie to the liars :D
Please shut this number down. Though I receive phone calls consistently from this number, I never answer the phone when I see that it's 4153441700.
Same thing - their phishing. Apparently got some old database and are calling trying to find onfo and numbers.
It actuaally is on call back as CBS Interactive HQ in San Franciso. Location is 235 Second Street in San Franciso, CA
Funny thing about this number is later when I checked my recieved calls on my cell it wasn't listed as ever having called to me cell. Fortunely I write everything down so I had saved the number as HP research - which was what I had been told.
When I called the number back the siad they were 'CBS Interactive and claimed they were "like CBS News except we're online on the web."
Who says 'online on the web' anymore. There was a trace of an eastern european czech (moravian?) accent.
All I know - watch yourself.
To me they claimed to be from HP Product research - what do you want to bet that HP never heard of em? on my do-not-cal-lest cell phone.
Showed up as "No message left" in my voicemail.
This number just called my cell phone. I don't answer any number I don't know and they left no message. I will continue to ignore if they call back.
Had a call from this number today at work. I didn't answer the phone because I didn't recognize the number. The person did not leave a message.
