I have requested several times in the last few months not to be contacted and to remove our number from their call list. Yet every day this week I have gotten a phone call from a local.com rep saying they want to feature our business or some such bull. I have told each and every one of those callers that I have already requested to be removed from their call lists, to remove us again, and to STOP CALLING HERE! I asked for a call back number and was told by someone named Mark Evans that the call back number is 877-500-5622. These people are freaking annoying! They start by asking you to update business info, then try to rope you into paying for advertising on their website, just like all the other bs "yellowpage" listing calls we always get here.
yellow pages type telemarketer. Will not remove you from calling list. Calls several times a day.
F***ing annoying f***ots calling nonstop. How is this not illegal? Fucktards.
"hello...your business is very important to us.."
That is the only thing I got, then hanged up
These people can carry their terror.a** back to where they come from.
Phone rings then nothing. Usually a few times a week.
I called them back and they said they would remove me from the call list. Only time will tell, but the young lady on the phone was nice about it.
barley spoken english I dont no y the gots to cawl me
Just for fun, if you are working or living in an environment that you could do this in, answer the phone whenever a suspected telemarketer is on the line. If you hear a real human voice and they start their shpeel, hold a gas charged air-horn to the phone & blast them for a second or two! You can get them from amazon.com for as little as $7.00 for the 1.4oz can or under $30.00 for the 8oz which will last a very long time if used in short bursts. Refill 8oz cans are about $16.00. Free Shipping often available on orders over $25.00!
Even if it's a recording, wait and see if a human takes over the call or if there is an option for them to start recording you, then blast them!
Don't get mad, GET REVENGE!
As GAS stated, these people will record your voice and then contact the phone company pretending to be you. They will ask the phone company (posing as you) to add a service to your account. This is called ?Cramming?. This will result in a modest charge added to your phone bill. They don?t want it to stand out. This added service can usually be found at the back of your bill. If this has already happened to you, call your phone company and tell them. They can refund you for up to 12 months of service.
Now protect yourself. If you ask, the phone company can secure your account so it can?t be changed by just voice. So even if you or someone in your company gets suckered by these dips, they can?t use your recorded voice to change your account.
scam du jour
These people have been around for a long time scamming small businesses out of money like crazy. I have filed numerous complaints with the FCC and FTC about them to no avail. I simiply don't answer any 800 calls to my business phone as I know they are telemarketers breaking the federal law. They don't care because the Federal Law is not enforced. Don't bother asking them to remove your name and number from their calling list. THEY DON"T DO IT! Sure they will tell you they will but trust me, asking them to remove it is actually telling them to call you several times a day, even on Saturday and Sunday. They want you to "update your information with their online website" First of all I never provided the information to them and never asked to be listed with them online. I told them I refuse to update something I never asked for to begin with and if it is so important to "update" they can go back to the original source where they got the information to begin with for any updates they require. They tried once to tell me they were contracted by my local telephone company to update the phone company's records. I didn't buy it then and still don't. I immediately called my local phone company and was asked for the phone number that appeared on my caller ID. I was then informed by my local phone company never to give those people any information as my phone company is aware of this group and they are scamming small businesses all across this country out of money. If you respond to these people and "update" your answers are recorded and they splice your answers into a recording they make that essentially you have agreed to pay them several hundreds of dollars which is billed to you on your local phone bill. Call you local phone company and tell them you want your phone number blocked from any third party billers. Your phone company has to block your number. That way, you won't get a big surprise on your phone bill one day with a huge third party bill for something that you legally did not authorize. Don't bother calling your local law enforcement because they consider it a Civil matter and they don't deal with those. Your best bet all the way around is DON"T ANSWER any 800 calls and don't answer out of area calls, unavailable calls, and if you don't do much business out of state, don't answer out of state area code calls. I have trimmed down these telemarketers calls to a small minimum on my business line. They never leave messages on the answering machine so you know they are telemarketers. I was told by a telemarketer once that they don't leave messages because the people never call back. I responded with "that should be telling you something, like, we are not interested in any thing you are selling" How stupid can people be? Personally, I wish that the Federal Government would make a worthwhile law for a change and outlaw telemarketing. That would put an end to a tremendous illegal line of scamming in this world. Those people would have to find a real job and make an honest living for a change. I honestly don't know how any of them can look themselves in the face each morning, knowing they are crooked as the day is long, Point is, they are simply to stupid to realize what they are doing.
F****ng annoying f**gots calling nonstop. How is this not illegal? F****ards.
Someone asked how to contact this company, I did plenty of searching for that myself and this is what I came up with
One Technology Drive, Building G
Irvine, CA 92618
(877) 784-0805 toll-free
(949) 784-0800 local
(949) 784-0880 fax
email - firstname.lastname@example.org
there is a "contact customer service" form on this site as well
These guys may be putting this number in their phone manually, because ZipWeb already had me removed from their tele list. They are suspicious too, Many calls to them about the same thing.
I called back at this number as I CONTINUALLY receive it as well. They answered, said it was a company called ZipWeb. I gave them 3 numbers to remove me from - as they call "everywhere"! He said he would remove them. I can only hope!
Keep getting phone calls and no response etc.
How do I get off of their list. When I call the number back it doesn't say it is local.com which leads me to believe this company is using another companies 877# as their caller ID.
I have been getting one call per hr. from this number on my cell phone. I called the number and told them that my phone was on the do not call list...but not help. I don't even know who this is.
