I got a call from this number (813-386-1555) on my cell at 5:15 AM ET! No message was left. Reverse phone look-up says it belongs to Columbia Health. Not sure where they would be to be calling at 5:15 in the morning to the east coast.
Got a call from this number today and received a voicemail. Ashley from United Recovery Systems. Asked that I return her call to 800-254-0283 Ext 4058. No idea who this is.
We just spent 3 hours on the telephone with Brighthouse about this issue. We have been getting the calls as well. As others when we call back, no answer. We talked to Tech Support (tongue in cheek). We told the lady that we seen all of the blogs. She said did you find it? I guess she hasn't heard of Google Search. After no help from her, I called back and got another useless Tech. A third call gave me some guy that said it was other carriers issues not Brighthouse. When I told him, We could look into changing carriers, his comment was do what you have to do. Sounds alot like Customer Service maybe JD Powers Award winning Service. Called Sales hoping that losing customers would motivate them, not really.
Everyone please call Brighhouse Tampa. This seems to be the only area affected.
Received several phone calls from this number today, the woman said she was from wachovia and asked for information about my account.

Hi, I received this caller ID today and it was a client of our company's. From the comments, my guess is that the caller is on VoIP and that there's no Calling Line ID established. The recipient's carrier may throw that in there as a place holder...
Just a thought.
I'm getting calls from 813-386-1555 Columbia Health but to my work phone. Somehow they don't even go through the receptionist. Since I don't pick up, they immediately call my cell phone but only 000-000-00000 comes up.
I Get these calls too except no one answers and they call my cell phone all hours of the night 12 am 4 am 6 am then throughout the day??? i wish i knew a way to stop this how can they be alowed to harrass all of us like this and who knows wat there up to???? has any one read the paper lately with all these craig list killers ect. if any one has information more about this company spread the word cuz im the type to get my voice HEARD!
receivd call on my cell from 813-386-1555 and they left message on my cell, giving an 877 phone number to call back. The number to call back is a collection agency.
I have received calls on my LAN line from this number since switching to Verizon. I have also received several blocked numbers and Unknowns as well which I do not bother to answer. No messages left by this number. The one time I answered the Caller ID read Columbia Health. No one answered and hung up. I have Virgin Mobile prepaid cell and recently topped up, the same day I received calls from this number on my cell as well. Crazy!
very vulgar and filthy common language. Do not answer calls from this number. call the police.
mary, winter haven
who r these creepy people?this is about 4 calls from them what is columbia health?
I received a call from 813-386-1555 and they left no message. I also tried to call back and it was disconnected. I use Magic Jack.
I am receiving calls from 813-386-1555, at various times of the day, seven days a week. I do not answer calls that I do not know. They do not leave a message. I just got a call at 9:30 SUNDAY morning. I too have tried to call back and get the same message as above. This VERY annoying. How do you make these calls STOP?
I picked up the phone today to see why, or who keeps calling from Columbia-Health 813-386-1555. She says:
Hi Rose, how are you?, blah blah blah
She said she was calling to offer me protection against credit card fraud use on DiscoverCard at $9.95. She asked for my mailing address & S.S.# for verification, or, when I get the information packet in the mail, I can include my social# on the form with my payment when I send it back.
I told her I was not interested, & she told me CC Fraud happens a lot now, what will you do, or how will you pay if that happens to you?
I laughed & said:
HELLOOOOOOO! INCASE YOU DIDN'T HEAR ME, I AM NOT F@#$*%G INTERESTED. IF I HAD A DISCOVERCARD, OR ANY CC'S, THOSE COMPANIES WOULD NOT BE CALLING EVERYDAY ASKING FOR INFORMATION THAT THEY ALREADY WOULD HAVE! Then I hung up
After a few hours thinking about this, I got pissed at myself. What I should have done, & I will next time, is this:
I will act (ALMOST) as stupid as they want me to LOL. I will give them a P.O. Box to send me all their goodies w/ such great offers. When it arrives in the mail, I take my happy azz home. Then, I will look up & call the Police Department of the area which handles the area of the B*****d SCAMMERS!
I also tried to call the number back (blocking mine) & i get the same that you all have got when calling them back.
Your call cannot be completed
ALL - my parents in area code 941 - Punta Gorda, FL just switched from Embarq to Comcast and every time they call me in Sarasota, it comes up 813 386 1555 Columbia Health.
The problem is in VOIP routing - they don't make the caller id available, so they put a fixed number in there just to pass something!! They claim ignorance. The real caller id comes through if they call my California cell phone number.

In addition, why not prosecute the government who doesn't pass laws requiring truth in caller id and allows the telcos to operate as they do with no responsibility to protect the consumer?
These creeps are harrassing with a phony number designed to appear like a legit company. Their service provider needs to be prosecuted.
has been calling my phone 2 - 3 times a day and leaves no message.
Phone rang (we have MagicJack) and the caller id popped up and revealed the number posted above 813-386-1555. I only know one person on that exchange. It is one of my doctors in Tampa, but the number didn't match. I used redial and it said the call could not be completed as dialed.
I just got a call from this number and the guy told me he was with the Police Benevolent Assoc wanting us to donate, but It would not come up Columbia Health if it was the PBA. Something is amiss here.
I have verizon and this number has called my cell phone a few time and when I call it back the number is disconnected...
...and to add a note to the above message. I am with AT&T, not Brighthouse.

Same thing here .. Received a call from my wife from home in area code 863 but the CID showed (813) 386-1555 "Columbia Health"
I am also on Bright House but use VoIP
Call came in from family member in PA. Twice.............Caller ID is showing wrong message. I have Brite House......Maybe something is wrong in their system.................
they called me asking if i was mrs. hicks i said yes may i ask who is calling he told me his name and that he was from houston texas and was wanting to know about my recovery, i then asked him what recovery and he told me that he couldnt give me that information, then he asked me to verify my address,i told him to explain why he was calling me and he said that he already told me why he was calling for and if he gave out any more information that he may or could loose his job.
so i told him i wasnt going to verify my address or give out any information so then i hung up.
then i tried to call that number back from a different number but it said sorry your call cannot be completed as dialed, then i tried from my cell phone but the same message came on so i dont know whats going on.
if you get a call from this number i wouldnt answer it.
called my cell phone 3 times today, left no message
I use Brighthouse Cable Networks for my cable, phone and internet. It provides caller id on my tv. Over the weekend my daughter called from her home in Plantation, Florida, which is Ft. Lauderdale area code 954. This number came up on the screen....813-386-1555. This happened twice this weekend. I assumed since my Brighthouse cable is based in Tampa maybe the call was being re-routed. Hope this was helpful.
