Is this a scam ?
I called number back and it informed i had successfully completed a test call ! Now will they make long distance calls on my number !?
As a telecommunications engineer, everyone should know, the number being displayed is not necessarily the number they are calling from. Internet based calls, you can program the number to be displayed. These calls are coming from over seas, and the US has no jurisdiction over these people.
Note: Recently, Numerous calls have come in to business using phone systems and the callers are using a computer dialer to hack into the system and make international calls to the Caribbean, to the tune of thousands of dollars in one night. I would pass this on to the person that handles your business phones and have them lock out international calls..
Watch your phone bill. Hope you don't start getting outrageous charges from some third world country like Nigeria. I got one of those hang-up calls when I was out of town. When I checked the number I got that "Successfully completed test" message. I just hope that they didn't get into my account.
I recvd call frm a chicago area code w/ the same messg about needing my 16 digit master card #.....w/ busey bank.....i dont have one...
It is a call for G Beauty Institute, for those who have inquired about information for their programs.

They called yesterday, 5/16/12, I asked them NOT TO CALL AGAIN. They called again today, 5/17/12, I asked them again not to call back, the caller stated he would call again tomorrow 5/18/12.
The calls are coming from a scammer. For a scammer the Do Not Call list is just one more law to break.
I'm on the national do not call list and paid for the Florida do not call list, and still receives these annoying calls from Sandwich, Illinois. I don't know anyone in that city, why doesen't these call list work?
Why do we continue to get these unwanted calls as on do no call list? Obviously Spam and phone companies need to do something about these.
today call & hangs up.. Am on a do not call list but matters little lately
Please ,how can I stop these people from calling me every day trying to see me insurance and other product.My phone # is unpublished am on the do not call list which I explaind yet,they still calling.
WHAT CAN I DO TO STOP THEM FROM CALLING.PLEASE HELP ME.
I begin to receive calls from 815-570-9987 since January 12, 2012 on my cell phone, when I answer the phone it states " you have just completed a test call from Petwest telecom" and then the call end. Am I getting charge for this call and who is the caller company?
I did a little skip tracing on this number and I found out who the phone provider is for this number, it is bandwidth. I called bandwidth and the gentleman said that we need to go to their website and send in a violation form an they will look into tw issue.
Above is the URL for bandwidth fill it out and press send and they will look into the number that is annoying all of us! Maybe the more of us that send one the quicker the calls can stop!
they called and said they needed my financial info then cussed me out
Reported to verizon wireless. put block in line.
Daily harassment from this # what would a company named PAC-west be in the Midwest I see our goverment obviously don't monitor the correct people
How they got my phone number?
They are calling my cell phone. They also know my name. I received about 8 or more calls from this number. The first times I didn't answer and called back. When called them back received similar things as reported by others.
on one if their later calls, I answered, a man asked for me by name....told me he can help me lower my car insurance. Told him "not interested", he was very persistent and tried to talk me into getting this free quote. Told him to stop calling and hung up.
Several days later got another call from this number. A female gave the same spill.
I asked her name and where calling from. She hesitantly said it was Angela and calling from Champaign , Il. I don't know anyone in Illinois.
Told them to place my number on the do not call list and stop calling me.
Sounds like a scam.... A loud hum on the phone connection sounds like a call out of the U. S.

Here is some better information. I contacted Bandwidth.com that is one of their numbers they would not release the name of the company to me so I am going to continue to dig.
Wally good for you, just start your crusade with the correct company, the 815 number is for a company called Pac West Telecom Inc., that's how they answer when you call that number and the 310 number you give is for company called Western Pacific Telecommunications, not the same, you should get your info correct so you don't get burned.
Calls me every day..same thing. Hangs up when I answer. If I don't answer it only rings a few times and no message is left. PLEASE MAKE IT STOP!
I am starting a crusade. After every phone call from this 815 number, I call the California number.....repeatedly. They always deny that Western Pacific has anything to do with the calls but the number is a Western Pacific Telecommunications number. I suggest everyone do the same. Eventually the company should get the message. Call 310-538-6845. Call today. Call often.
Never not message - do not answer when i see this number show up on my phone
well now a human actualy did answer when i picked up and asked to speak to my brother.
I replied no and asked why they are calling me to reach him. They replied oh weve reached the wrong person sorry and hung up. Still no idea who is behind this nonsense.
I called PacWest Telecom and spoke with a customer service representative. They are aware of the problem as they've been getting calls from people like us calling them. It's not one of PacWest's numbers or comming directly from them. She knew what phone number I was refering to as she confirmed the 815-570-9987 phone number with me. All I can say is that PacWest is looking into the matter. They took down my information and will call me back with they have found the problem.

Calls from whoever what ever this is, they hang up, When I call back the number to ask them to knock it off i get a message that says you have successfully completed a test call to pacwest telecom
I really might have to get a device that blocks phone numbers this is like the 10th time in a week.
Nearly every day for the past week I get a call from 815-570-9987. I don't answer. They don't leave a message. I called the number back and got a voice message after about a three second beep that states, "You've successfully completed a test call from PacWest Telecom."
calling about a survey. when told not interested, was rude, and then hanged up.
Yeah, this number has been calling me a for a while. I might just have to go to Sandwich, Illinois and eat someone alive.
I got a message similar to yours. It said that DWP has validated my phone number.
Rec'd a call faithfully every day. My new phone allows me to put it on "block caller" list. It's a scam caller from a scam company they call National Insurers.
