f I'm looking for a job online... I think they will replay online or/and on a email... This call is very annoying... just received one right now... I'm considering jailbreaking my phone, buy a app to block annoying phone calls... this is mess up... STOP CALLING ME!!!!
15 calls from this number 14 of them today space about 30 minutes apart. I do not answer unknown numbers, but check websites like this for information.
I'm called every half hour and they only hang up. How do I stop/block this?
Has called no message left...I tried calling back, number is no longer in service or has been disconnected..WTH?
Got that exact same call and she gave the exact same bs. I asked her when did I responded the internet offer and she couldn't answer. I told her I'm busy at work and don't have time for this but she insisted that I get to the internet and claim the $100 gift card. When she said "all you need to do is $2.99...." I told her I don't have time and hung up right away.
call said i had done a survey for a walmat card
I was directed to wakanetwork.com when i told her (and i swear its some kind of voice activated computer program) i had no credit card debit card or checking or bank account of any kind she said ok have a blessed day
Thanks for the info
Keeps calling very rude feel harrasssed
They have called me twice in the past few days. I didn't pick up and they didn't leave a message.
The scam this time was the caller claimed I had responded to a free offer on the Internet.
I was directed to wakanetwork.com
The female voice caller said by signing up I could get a $100 gift card and a $10 Wal-mart card. I played along with false name and address info. Then there second screen wanted credit card info. I hung up and closed the website.
Two calls from 4871219722 so far. Aggravating!!!
This number has called me twice.
Looks like they are out to get our personal information, if they can. Don't let em'.
I had the SAME thing happen. I, too, am employed, have not looked for employment for some time, actually work in a field helping OTHERS get employed, and have two master's degrees. She switched her "spiel" from job seeking to educational advancement opportunities as she did with you when I answered as aforementioned with my information, and then she wished me a "blessed day." I'm tired of these people trying to scam others!!!
called last night - no message
Have received 20-30 calls from this number a day on my cell. No message.
Very persistent caller. Also said I had entered information online for a job and she was calling to get more information. When I told her I had a good job and was not looking for a job she continued to try. Even after I told her to remove my number, she was still trying to get me to give information. Finally just had to hang up.
she said i had applied for a job on line first of all i never put any personnel info on line, second i told her im retired why would i want to go back to work
Um.... Wasn't it obvious to you that you were talking to a recording?
phone call and nothing on the other end. on the do not call registry.
calls and nothing on the other end
the magic 8 ball
You people who think the Do Not Call list should be affective against these types of calls are clueless. That list only works for legitimate businesses who respect the law. These people are criminals. Criminals don't care about the law.
"Report to FCC, Do Not Call list, etc." You are also clueless. The numbers they use are spoofed (that's why the number is not in service when you try and call it back), so reporting them does no good. When the police, FCC or whoever looks into the number you reported, they will find out it's a fake (out of service/unused) number. The only way these calls could be tracked back the their source would be an active phone trace when the call comes in, and in most states that requires a court order. And even then the calls will be coming from a pre-paid "burner" cell or a foreign country.
What most of you fail to understand is that the problem is not the Do Not Call list, it's the phone companies. When the telecommunications industry created the Caller ID system they left it open for easy spoofing. It should have been an encrypted, secure system, but it's not. It's actually very simple to spoof any number. There are applications, and even web sites that will do it for you. Literally anyone can do it. A five minute search on google is all it takes.
The only, admittedly temporary solution is to block the call. That will work until the crooks move on to a new spoofed number, at which point you block that number, rinse, repeat. If you don't have a smart phone and/or a provider that has call blocking, then create a scammer, telemarketer contact and set it to a silent ring tone. The contact solution is not as elegant as call blocking because you will still see the missed call, but at least you won't be woken up in the middle of the night by some idiot trying to get your social security number.
Again, depending on your phone, you could also set it to go to silent or off-line (airplane) mode at night when you'd normally be asleep Mine is set to do that between midnight and 8am, so that even when they switch to a new fake number I won't be woken up (which tends to be a big problem for me due to the time zone I live in).
The most extreme and effective fix would be to block all calls from numbers not on your contact list. That would effectively eliminate these nuisance calls. The risk with that is that you would miss a call from emergency services (police, hospital) if someone you know has you listed as their emergency contact number.
The bottom line is, until the telecommunications industry does something about the crappy caller ID system, we are all pretty much screwed. These crooks will keep calling, and there's nothing we can do to stop it. If it's not a number you are expecting a call from, just don't answer. If it is a legitimate call they should leave a message. Otherwise, assume it's a scam and ignore the missed call.
And don't waste your time calling them back. If it wasn't important enough to leave you a message, then it obviously wasn't an important call. Delete the missed call and don't give it a second thought.
Unless, of course, you are expecting a call from a deposed Nigerian price who wants to transfer ten million dollars to your bank account, in which case you should give me a call, because I can give him a message for you...
They are using fake area codes so you can't file a complaint. The complaint form won't recognize the area code and won't let you proceed to the next step
487 121 9722 calling me to but nobody on other end & I am on the don't call registery. This number & several like it call constantly....very bothersome.
File a complaint with the registry.
I get calls from this number almost once a day on a brand new cell number that I have not given out at all. I didn't talk to the woman, but I answered without saying anything and let South Park play in the background with Cartman cursing and shouting :) She said hello a few times and then hung up - clearly not a legit call, so toy with them :)
This was the best scam call i have gotten in a while, she needed personal information about me for the job I had recently applied for. Twice I told her I hadn't applied for any jobs in the last 12 years. Without a beat she moved into telling me I had inquired online about additional education opportunities. I informed her that I have a PHD and I don't need any more education. As I have learned from other postings she ended the call with have a blessed day to which i said "then stop cold calling people". I feel bad for anybody who may have recently applied for a job and fell for it. I can only imagine the damage she could cause if I had bought the line of bull she was selling.
