Got a call on April 3 @6:25. Caller ID said name not found. No message was left. I don't answer or return calls from numbers I don't know.
got first calls from this number 04/04, and 04/05 no name, 9:45am
CW has the same phone I do. Works EXCELLENT !! (But you need the caller id service from your phone company). Wish we could program the "call block" message. If you could use the phone company 3 tones that are used for "number not in service" or other invalid numbers, that would be detected by their autodialer, and would remove your number from their dialing sequence. If you want to pay for the extra service, your phone company can block certain area codes. Na- just use call block !
when I filed a complaint against debt collector with the wrong number in 2005, 2006, DNC did nothing. Still doing nothing - read the complaint procedure - they don't even follow up on most. What a joke.
do not call is just a joke - they are impotent
Ever since we regestered on the Do Not Call log, we're getting more spam phone calls. Make sense?
The caller phones once a week. Caller ID reads, Name Not Found.
Do not know anyone from this telephone number
Got several calls from this #. Never answered it, but my mother got it once and it was something about diabetes. Caller ID just says "out of area."
didn't answer call. From the other responses, i wonder if walgreens or united healthcare (MDs are partners tho this particular diabetic patient technically has blue cross insurance) shared patient information with this scammer, since united healthcare at least boasts about how it doesn't have to follow hipaa because of its clout. i don't know which is less effective, hhs' office of civil rights (altering and sharing electronic medical records is supposed to be illegal but enforcement is 'voluntary', i.e. nonexistent) or the ftc's do not call list (which this number's long been on.
Thanlyou 899 Notes!
All I can say is that everytime I get these irritating calls, I can come to 800 Notes and find the answers. Thankyou everyone!!!
This # called on 4/4 at 2 PM. Was the bathroom..rang 3 times. Did not know the #, but do know it is part of the 809 area code. I never answer #s I don't know..and some I do..lol. Yes, is you call the # back you could be in for a BIG charge..so don't.

I suspect these calls may be part of the same scam organization that stuck my number in their auto-dialer over a year ago and has been harassing me ever since. More detail and numbers that have been bombarding me with calls are listed in my posts here:
Blocks are all well and good as far as they go, but limited, as all these type of callers keep switching #s, as they know about blocking too. I of course never answer---the biggest no no. I also only turn on phone from only 12 to 5 PM during business days, at least cuts down on calls--someone needs to call me, can call PM. Real problem is 1) FCC does diddlesquat--beurocrats doing nothing! 2) Phone Cos. do nothing to stop these calls, which many believe they could if they wanterd to, they probably make money from these calls too somehow.
Received call today-name unavailable. Left no message on answering machine. Thanks for the info. I believe I received a similar call 2 weeks ago regarding diabetes. Was not interested and hung up.
We wish the government would stop this number (849-965-5896 - D Republic Call) from calling our home. They should stop all these calls from telemarketers. When you ask a number to STOP calling you, the next time, they change their number and call from a different number. This is so disgusting.
Why can't the government stop these unwanted telemarketing calls that we constantly receive?? I answered on a phone that doesn't show the number, or I wouldn't have held and wasted 15 minutes to talk with someone. She assured me she would remove our number from their list, but I DOUBT she will. They just call on a different number the next time.
I would not have answered this call, but I picked up on a phone that doesn't show the number. I held about 15 minutes trying to get to talk with someone and DEMAND they not call us again. When I finally got a lady she said she would remove our number from their list, but I doubt it will happen. Why can't the government stop these telemarketing calls?
Caller ID said "name not found". So I did my usual - pick it up & slam it down.
Caller ID "Name Unavailable" ... @7:03am EDT ? 3rd time! I do not answer callers I do not know. They did not leave a message. Prior 800 notes indicate this is a SCAMMER!
I'm sure the do-not-call registry in the US means nothing to foreign callers and they will not respect it even if they have heard of it.
Robocaller said, "if you are a senior or suffering from arthritis..." and then, "if you are NOT a senior or suffering from arthritis, push 2 to be removed from this list. I pushed 2 and the recording asked me to hold on. I hung up. Blocking this number.
Telemarketers are Spoofing numbers. A fake number shows up on your caller ID
Received a phone call (on my land phone which is on the National DO NOT CALL LIST) on 4/5/2013 at 4:45.
I let it ring as I did not recognize the number. A voice said to please hold for next operator...next a male voice
is heard saying hello, hello. I had better not be charged for a call I did not place..
Please stop these calls from 849-965-5896
Repeated ad nauseum calls from this number. I have pressed the do not call button so often the lettering is getting dim with 0 results.
"Name not Found" -- calls all the time and I have a call blocker device. However, those unwanted calls I have programmed into my device allow one ring before it disconnects them. I have every 800, 866, 877, 900, etc. number by complete area codes, plus more individually.
I really don't know why the phone carriers allow these calls --- think about it..... we pay our carriers to allow these nuisance calls to have access to us. Perfect for these scammers. Perfect for the carriers. It's like a "toll-free road" into our homes and lives.
The DNC registry used to work. Now the government we pay in taxes to "help" us has the DNC site that when you go to it and read how it has instated laws that these low-life scammers "MUST" adhere to, THEY DON'T!!! And the DNC has no teeth to actually do anything about it. And they say that we need to actually tell EACH of these nuisance callers to "PUT ME ON YOUR DO NOT CALL LIST" using those words. They are supposd to take you off for 5 years -- after which, they can start calling again, and you have to tell each one of them again.
And blah, blah, blah ..... more there to read and laugh at.
So, if I have to do this myself, what good do they do? And I have the same rhetoric regarding so many more numbers......
Received call today 4/5/2013 from this number. Caller ID said "D Republic Call". Did not answer and they left no message. I also on the national DNC list but I am pretty sure the Dominican Republic is not covered by our laws!
CID says "D Republic Call." They are calling specific numbers from an age-specific database and know who they called when an operator comes on the line. They claim to be representing "American Seniors Assistants" and have a free program to help diabetics and seniors with back pain. One operator says they are located in Virginia, but when I asked for the address, hung up on me. They are able to ignore the DNC list since they claim to be a charity and are actually offshore anyway. DO NOT GIVE THESE CROOKS ANY INFORMATION OR MONEY. They are preying on the unwary and the elderly. And they will keep calling, so block them if you can; a DNC entry won't do it.
Love having a silent ring tone on my phone! Now I never know these jokers have tried calling me until I see the number on my calls list. For friends, family, and other frequently used legit numbers I have set up ringtones with sound. Also dropped voice mail so don't have to deal with messages from idiots like this. Life is much more peaceful.
Called my home and hung up before leaving a message....
