He just called me and told me he was from PC Recure, name: JACK ANDERSON, middle eastern accent, he told me he worked for a company that handles all of Window users PC threats and that he needed 5 min of my time in order to fix the problem. I told him I was busy and asked for his name, number and company name and that I would give him a call back. Yeah right! Not after seeing all of this crap about the guy. Beware
Count me in for any class action suits please....a year and a half of the bs harrassing calls is enough!
I got a call from 626-843-625 at 10:00 p.m. He sounded like from India. He was telling me that I have malicious messages from many people in which I don't see any. He offered to fix it that same night. He said his name is William and did not give me his last name when I asked about it. I felt that it's a scam so to make him stop calling, I told him that I'll call him back the next day which I never did. I even told him that I don't trust anybody although he insisted, he did not succeed. Be careful from this number.
This number is calling me everyday, at or around five times a day. I would like them to stop immediately!
this phone number calls tells me they are a litigation service and that im being taken to court because of some sort of fraud checks. Sorry buster but I know my legal rights, and I know about legal process. These people are using scare tactics, never said who they were also just asked me personal account info, at which point i hung up.
this number keep calling and doesn't say anything
Received a call stating that I had a virus on my computer. I stated that my computer was fine, and that I would not sit down and talk to someone hom I do not know and give them information about my computer. Asked for her name and number, Nicole Parker, 646.843.6250 and that I would call her back after receiving verification that her outfit worked for Microsoft. She stated Microsoft never returns calls from subscribers and hung up. Just a new trick.
called at 6:30 am, 6:45 am, and 7:24 am and 8:58 am. Annoying, can't understand this person, I am on the do not call list, doesn't seem to matter to this company
Started getting calls from this number this morning. First few I didn't pick up since the last # was missing and I don't know anyone in NY. After reading these posts, I answered to find an Indian guy with strong accent named "James". He had my name so I asked where he was calling from. Something about online auto loan company. I told him that I wasn't interested and to remove my # from their call list. He hung up immediately!
Woke me up
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Back to back calls yesterday, on my cell, from phone number (646) 843-625.
I answered one of them, and he said I was approved for an Auto Loan, up to $35,000. < --Seriously?
I told him I was not interested in an Auto Loan and that I only buy AMERICAN.
Then he said, "ok, well, do you need a loan"? I hung up.
Didn't answer any more calls, and then this morning at 5:56am my phone rings, and who is it.. same number from yesterday.
Frickin IDIOTS! Where's my whistle!
No, I've never applied for an Auto Loan, especially online.
I am also receiving calls from 646 843-625 (is all it comes up) They ask for my husband, when i tell them not available to come to phone and ask who they are and to leave a messages they just hang up. The man sounds eastern. I have gotten 3 call + a day can not call it back, it states it is no longer available or no longer in service. This is getting old I think when they call back I will state I am his lawyers and see what happens.
Thank you so much for posting this....I too am getting calls from this man saying I owe a payday loan and they are sueing me! Except in my case he is saying very perverse things and I have two phone age girls. I do not have caller id on my home phone and did not have a number. He said he was with Clifford and Associates and he was attorney Kevin hen-also middle eastern accent. I told him I was calling police and he calls more! If you could help out any more info I wuld appreciate it. He has all my info from I guess an online application and is saying he's going to do very indecent things.
They also call me hourly and rarely leave a message, but when they do it's to tell me that I am preapproved for a car loan. I never answer their calls but I did file a complaint on the National Do Not Call Registry (www.donotcall.gov) as my cell# is registered there.
I hope they go away soon...
Foreign person calls every 45 minutes talking about a car loan application,when I make inquires as to him obtaining this number he hangs up, or to try to tell him I am registered with the do not call list he hangs up,
the phone number is 646 843 6258
Its now 12:03pm and has already gotten 5 phone calls. They woke me up. Bad move I had back surgery and is in consant pain. They woke up the wrong chick. Finally I picked up and what a suprise.....no answer. These fools need to stop. I have gotten numerouse txt messages and emails not to mention phone calls saying I have been approved for some kind of loan. Then I get phone calls saying I owe a payday loan and I need to pay or I will be thrown in jail the next day. Needless to say I'm still waiting on the police to come get me. This is bs. I have called a legitamate online payday loan and asked them about it. They said it was a huge scam going on and do not give them any information. It is a scam that is now beign invstigated by homeland security. So please everyone if you don't know who it is don't pick it uop.
They keep calling not sure what they want but cant get them to stop
I received three calls in fifteen min. from a person with a very strong accent saying he was from the law firm of Howard & Fletcher anad that I was going to have to go to jail because I owe money. He also said that if he did not get the money he would have to come to my home or my place of employment to collect it.
Wow! this is such a scam! ai did reort it to the FBI and my local police department but I have not heard anything back from them.
I received a call from a man saying he was with a law firm. He had a foreign accent (Idian) and I couldn't understand him very well. He said I owed money on a payday loan and they were suing me. He said someone was going to come to my house and that I should call the law authorities here! He knew where I bank and my SSN! I argued with him and told him I don't owe any payday loans. He said they have records. I asked him to give me the name of that company then and that I would call them. He wouldn't do that. He didn't ask for money after this. Just said to have my lawyer call him. I told him I have done nothing wrong and then he said "well then you have nothing to worry about!". I am a widow living alone with my granddaughter I am raising. Now I'm scared, I'm already having a tough time and now this!! I was so shaken up I couldn't sleep all night and I'm still shaking today!! I haven't reported to the police. What can they do anyway?
After the 5th call today I held the phone to the garbage disposal when I answered.
I have recieved several calls from 646-843-625 for the past few days. The calls are coming in before 7am PST and are waking me up every morning. I am a hotel manager, so I have to have my phone on at all times in case of an emergency. If I answer the phone, they will ask for someone else, and hang up immediately, or they will stay on the phone and breathe heavily and then hang up. These calls have led to me losing about 2 hours of sleep per day, as well as caused me to oversleep a meeting I had this morning. These calls are affecting people's lives and need to be stopped!
THESE PEOPLE KEEP CALLING MY CELL # AND I SUPPOSE THEY DON'T SPEAK ENGLISH, BECAUSE I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO SAY, PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THESE PEOPLE CALLING , I DON'T KNOW IF IT IS AND INDIVIDUAL OR COMPANY

I keep receiving numerous calls from the above number please be aware that this number a phony debt collection company trying to still funds from you so be careful.
sick of scammers
I took this directly off of the FBI's website (http://www.fbi.gov/scams-safety/e-scams) regarding these calls. I started receiving calls from (987)928-2683 and (646)843-625 today about once an hour from each number-between the two of them I'm getting calls about every 1/2 hour. I haven't answerd any of the calls. The kicker is that I haven't even applied for a loan of any sort.
Telephone Collection Scam Related to Delinquent Payday Loans
12/01/2010?The IC3 receives a high volume of complaints from victims of payday loan telephone collection scams. In these scams, a caller claims that the victim is delinquent in a payday loan and must repay the loan to avoid legal consequences. The callers purport to be representatives of the FBI, Federal Legislative Department, various law firms, or other legitimate-sounding agencies. They claim to be collecting debts for companies such as United Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Net, and other Internet check cashing services.
One of the most insidious aspects of this scam is that the callers have accurate information about the victims, including Social Security numbers, dates of birth, addresses, employer information, bank account numbers, and names and telephone numbers of relatives and friends. The method by which the fraudsters obtained the personal information is unclear, but victims often relay that they had completed online applications for other loans or credit cards before the calls began.
The fraudsters relentlessly call the victim?s home, cell phone, and place of employment. They refuse to provide to the victims any details of the alleged payday loans and become abusive when questioned. The callers threaten victims with legal actions, arrests, and in some cases physical violence if they refuse to pay. In many cases, the callers even resort to harassment of the victim?s relatives, friends, and employers.
Some fraudsters instruct victims to fax a statement agreeing to pay a certain dollar amount, on a specific date, via prepaid visa card. The statement further declares that the victim would never dispute the debt.
These telephone calls are an attempt to obtain payment by instilling fear in the victims. Do not follow the instructions of the caller.
If you receive telephone calls such as these, you should:
?Contact your banking institutions;
?Contact the three major credit bureaus and request an alert be put on your file;
?Contact your local law enforcement agencies if you feel you are in immediate danger;
?File a complaint at www.IC3.gov.
Ive been getting calls from these fools for a month or more...even as early as 6:00 AM.....how do we stop this? I see these threads going back over a year where is the law enforcement?
I have received calls before frommen with middle eastern accents before and made local and federal complaints. This time it was from a different number. When I answered there was only music playing. I got online and looked up the number and found this information posted here about the 646 number. I have added it to my list and will be adding it to my previous complaint list. Thanks.
Received 4 calls from 646-843-625 yesterday at work and 7 calls so far today (and it's only 1:15PM). Have no idea who is calling because they hang up when I answer. If I don't answer the phone rings three times and they don't leave a message.
ANNOYING!!! I'm at work & don't have time for crap like this.
just started getting these calls today, at least six times so far! how do i make them stop?
