they say you can win up to 20k then try to sell you a security system. When you press no on that they say you won a $100 wal mart card well then a person comes on that might be in India. They want you to cover the $4.95 shipping and give them your debit card. When I said I was not comfortable with that they hung up...Big scam written all over it. I don't give my card info to some stranger on the phone. Blocking the number now.
No but I did just do taxes in which of course had to put a phone number - grrrrrrrrrrrrr guess time to change tns, and do em by paper and snail mail from here on out as apparently someone is accesing the tax softwares databases or the tax software sites are selling out our information.
I've been getting calls from 813-252-0666 or other 813 numbers daily, about 9AM, for about a week and always on my cell. I rarely give anyone my cell #. Don't know if it will do any good, but I will look up the FCC.
I got a call from this and fell for it it was a company helping me to get a credit card payment down to $48.00 a month for a year. It was and is a scam. charged an arm and a leg to do.

Yes. But if they are calling from India, they don't care.
sic n tired
got call on my cell phone today. had hung up by the time I answered. I am registered on the national do not call list, and do not want to waste my cell minutes on this garbage.
Getting called by this number every two hours but I don't pick it up tried to call back but it was no longer in service WHAT THE HECK MAN!!!
If you get calls from them on your home phone on a regular basis and especially around the same time each day and you don't answer and some time later your home gets burglarized, it is because they assume you are gone at that time of day and it is their best time for them to go to work. Be prepared for the burglary if this happens.
I use tmobile pay as you go because of these types of calls and when they get too numerous and too frequent for me. I just change my no. and let my friends know the new no. Also I can block nos. on my phone.
They most likely use a computer that uses random numbers and ends up calling all possible combinations.
They called me today and said I won a free home security system. I said I don't need theirs because I use a gate, an electric fence, a .45 caliber pistol, a 12 gauge pump shotgun, an assault rifle, yard motion detectors and a phone to notify the coroner should anyone get thru my security system and they hung up.
Hello - same situation here. Didn't answer my cell (also AT&T) as I won't if I don't recognize the number. I don't know anyone who would call me from a FL number. Reading these posts sounds like it's a good thing I didn't answer. This is the second call of this type (different number, same situation 2 days ago) no message left.
I'm in Waco, TX. I got a few calls like this as well. My personal cell first which I didnt answer and had the voicemails telling me I won free home security system as well. The number also called my place of business but disconnected right away when I asked how I could direct the call.
THIS BUSINESS IS NOT BBB ACCREDITED
Allegiance Telecom of Florida located in Tampa, Florida. Also calling from Number 813-200-6555 Spam. Total rip off Fraudulent Company. Won't leave a message, calling Newly assigned & Random Numbers. Seeking Funds while not providing any service or product.
They get your numbers from other companies who sell them numbers. Don't ever give you number to any company. Facebook, Yahoo, google all sell your numbers and data to crooks to harrass you and they get a cut of the action. Corporations are people, bad crooked people who worship Satan by worshipping money.
My daughter's cell phone received a call from 813-252-0666, and it was a telemarketer. She hung up. Less than 15 minutes later, I received a call from the same number on my cell phone. I asked how they got my number and she said it was on their list (she had a thick foreign accent, also). I said we weren't interested and hung up. Within a minute, literally, the same number called my son's cell phone (he does not give out his number anywhere!). I am not happy with this situation!
This number is SPAM DO NOT ANSWER
BEWARE! Received call on my unlisted cell phone number. Caller said he was from "Home Security Department." Very suspicious operation, it seems to me.
haha, that is good. I'm going to answer the same why next time I get a call. Have gotten three calls already that I didn't answer but will next time. :)
Call from 813-252-0666. Heavy foreign accent. Trying to sell security system. Unsolicited call.
same thing happened to me, heavy indian accent, said i won a home security system. he called from 813-252-0666 on 2/25/13 and then called again on 2/27/13 from 813-200-6555. the weird thing is, i dont own a house, nor am i even the valid age to own one. should we report him?
is it illegal for telemarketers to cold call cell phones?
Just got a call from this number today. Person had a heavy accent and claim that I had been selected for a free security system. This is my cell phone! I was very hestitant in my reply. I did not release no info but heard a lot of noise in the background.
someone needs to arrest these people
This number called me, I had a post on Craigslist and an email from someone. I told them to call me if they were interested and this number called. I didnt answer, no message. I figured it was a scam...
Will this make them stop calling?
Missed call today from this number. I looked the number up and found this list of "unwanted calls" made from this number. Glad I checked it out before I called back.
Called me 4 times back to back within 3 minutes. Call ended quickly each time. Tried to call it back and got message this number is not talking calls.
I'm glad i googled this number. I tried calling it back, but got a recording that my call was unable to be completed as dialed. But not the usual ATT recording.
I got a cal from this number 813-252-0666. They had a distinct Filipino accent. I let them go on their schpeel and they hung up immediately when I said ""You should know im on the do not call list". What was interesting, is that as it hung up, I could hear a second line...a voice, sounded like a black guy's voice like he was listening to the call and It very briefly connected me to his line as they hung up.
So, they have people monitoring the calls, I suspect.
called my cell phone, stated they wanted to install a wireless security system. Asked if they were speaking to the home owner. I told him to forget it. I didnt want it, not interested
