correction caller company unknown...Citi is my company that was called.
I called back
Got msg saying, "please press 9 to be added to do not call list".
So either I won't get any more calls, or if they are totally unscrupulous, I basically just validated for them I am a good working number and they'll sell me down the river to every spam caller out there...We'll see.
This number has called me quite frequently for the last week or so. They ask for (fake name) and then when you tell them that person does not work at your location, they ask for the IT manager. I do not transfer them and ask if I can take a message, which they never leave. I have asked them at least five times to take my telephone number off of their list, but they have not done so. The calls were so intrusive one day, they literally called me 22 times at my place of work.
They called 4 times yesterday, when I was out of the office and my outgoing message stated that fact. They've called again today. Never leave any messages.
Female caller who sounded as if she was high. Asked for someone who does not work here and when I told her there was no one by that name she just said "OOOOOOKKKKKKAAAAAAYYYYYY!" and hung up. I'd like to know what she was smoking.
Stop calling me - 4153665742
Has called my work number 1-2 x every day for the last couple months... does not leave message ever! I just called back & pressed 9 so hopefully that will be the end of it!
Called me 4 times this morning on my work number
Did it work? They have called me 5 times since this morning. I called back and pushed 9. I hope to NEVER hear from these idiots again.
Just got a call to my direct in number at work. The caller's foreign (probably Indian or similar) accent was so heavy I couldn't understand much more than something about white paper, this is not a sales call, and it will only take a few minutes. I didn't see much point in going on even to find out what she wanted if I couldn't understand her.
They have called twice in the past two weeks, the first time I transferred them to voicemail, and the second time I let them through to our IT department and let them handle it. When I inquired later if I should request DNC for this number, they said they had actually received information from a tech vendor they were looking into. The calls have since stopped. Looks like they're just trying to send out some useful info to techies.
I was called today, with the same results as above (hang up after answering.) I called back and got a recording saying "please press 9 if you would like to be added to our do not call list." I pressed 9 and was disconnected.
Scammers from India operating the USA.
Got a few calls from 415-366-5742
Total scamming looking to social engineer me and gather information about the place i work.
Same thing for me - they repeatedly call, ask to verofy my info. I ask who is this and what info do you need verified - where did you get my info - what is this in regard to. Answers are: we just need to update your info soi we can send you an IT Solutions whitepaper. I tell them I don't want it. They want to talk to an IT Manager. I tell them our IT is huge with several manager. I ask for their info so I can properlyt route the call. "Josh" won't give me the info and says they don't have a number we can call back at. I ask him to take me off his call lisyt. He says no and hangs up. He calls back! We go through the same conversation. I ask for a supervisor or manager - he says they don't have one and hangs up on me again. I call the number back - it says Press 9 to be added to the do not call list. I did this and highly doubt it will work. I have received several calls form them and have never provided them any "updated information". Annoyed.
They were looking for an IT manager - rather difficult to do at a university with 50k students. They actually called twice asking the same thing.
I've never had them say they are representing a paper company, just that they want to speak to the head of IT or some common first name "Can I speak to Mary/John/Nick?". When I offer to take a message they refuse and usually hang up on me. One time I pretended to be the head of IT and was asked for my title and business. How do you not know what company I work for? You were just asking for "specific" people here...
me too. earlier this afternoon at work number
Another call from White Paper Plains a long list of telemarketers, spammers and sellers of information no one want sold.
These calls take a lot of non-productive time and are useless. Evidently they make money on it or they would stop calling.
Here is why you never want to answer these calls or provide any information, even for something 'free'.
I got an email from one of these spammers yesterday:
"Hi - We have the contact lists for your industry available. Our Contact List database is updated by our staff of marketers by phone. This list comprises of 5,776 industry professionals. Each record has been phone verified for accuracy within the past six months, and all have e-mail contact information.

They called yesterday. Caller ID says "BELVDR/TIBRN CA" whatever that means. They were looking for our IT Manager. I told them you have the wrong department. It sounded like they wanted to make a sale or something.
They called again today, but I didn't pick up.
"If you only verify your contact information with us, we will send you a free whitepaper!"
"Once you verify your name, business email address, address, and telephone number, we will sell that info to anyone who will pay us for it."
This phone call is from a pest. Any comments about how good they are must come from people who work for them or own the company.
These people are relentless, and apparently, unstoppable :(
When I asked Whitepapers Weekly to put me on their 'Do Not Call List', I think I succeeded. Unfortunately, without asking me, they then sold my name and number to many other spammers, and now I can't answer my work phone number as I get at least a dozen spam calls a day.
Do not give these people any information that you do not want sold to the business spamming world.
Yes, they offer a money back guarantee that they won't sell your name, number, email address and job function to others! Unfortunately, since you didn't pay anything to get that 'free' whitepaper, that guarantee is worthless.
So sorry - I wrote it in under 'caller' just not in my post. It's Whitepapers Weekly.
Sure they are a great company - what company? Another useless comment from a useless spammer?????
If you're not a shill, then you won't mind telling us the name of this "unknown" company, what they're trying to sell and their mailing address. However, I still think you're a shill because you really wouldn't have come here to post a glowing review and failed to state at least the identity of the company.
I normally don't answer unknown numbers, but this company called my work - They were really friendly and I just had to answer a few questions before they emailed me a free whitepaper on CRM's. It was actually helpful since I'm looking into new ones right now. They also assured me I would not get any spam and so far this has proven true!
