Calls coming all day every day from this 888#, want to stop. When you answer, caller hangs up. 888-234-9939
unwanted calls every day
They have been calling me since last year. I register my phone with GOVT DO NOT CALL REGISTRY. This the only GOVT website I find to be useful , may be??
https://donotcall.gov/register/Reg.aspx, go there, on the left side of screen, you see "File a Complaint" very much self explanatory , it walks you through. I decided to file a complaint against these insuranceqoute.com, because they have crossed all lines of law and decency. I have never dealt with them , they do not abide by any FCC rules, do not respect privacy of consumers, they call anytime , ignored my request to be taken off their calling list and evidently they are very rude, use profanity when you question them. I encourage all who read this post to file a complaint against this callers. May be I say may be FCC or other entity takes action to shut them down. I personally had it with this b*****ds. They called my phone at 8 am this morning, then twice while I was at doctors office and strange enough, just NOW as I was typing this post, phone rang , guess what same black woman who has been calling me before comes online. I told her I have already filed a complaint!!!! She hang up right away:)))
Let me tell you how to protect yourself in the future. Get a GMAIL account. Its free.
Go to Google Voice and get a FREE Telephone number. No, you do not have to use it, but if you need to, get a head set and make and receive free phone calls all over the world.
Everytime you give out your phone number to anyone...but friends and family...give them the Google Voice phone number. You will never be bothered again.
When someone calls the Google Voice number, it records and transcribes the phone call and sends it to you email. If you feel like answering it, call them back. If not, ignore it.
By using Google Voice, I've cut down these unwanted sales calls and harassment by 95%.
my husband was looking for new car insurance two months ago. i'm a day sleeper and normally have the phone on silence, but today i was waiting for a call, and they called and called and called, every hour. 5 times today. when i called back they did answer. i wasn't nice and told them to take us off their list. she said okay and said have a nice day and hung up on me. i called right back got another girl. she said it will take 24 hrs to remove. and i told her fine one more call and i'm turning you over to my attorney.
it dont matter if you answer the call or not, it is for car insurance quotes, i have been telling them for months now that my husband has auto insurance but they call several times a day, and now i am getting calls from another nunber for the same thing
Whocalledus.com says it is Fingerhut.
They have called me countless times. The caller id says "unavailable". I am on the dnc list and it clearly does no good. I will report this number anyway.
they called numerous times today,i missed them due to work and when i called back they have some thing were it automatically hangs up on me.next time they call i am going to rip them a new a**.
I got a call from them at 12 am !!!! This morning they called again.
If this is a list of running complaints for the FTC and FCC to look at, here is my contribution.
12 times in two days. I think they are calling as I type this. Those pricks just won't let up. When I do answer they hang up on me. At what point should this be considered harassment.
How can I stop these calls
Calls twice a day and the phone rings 3 times then hangs up.... If I find out who it is calling I will pay them a visit PERSONALLY (That is if they are inside the U.S.)
it keeps calling me- leaves no message. i answered once and got disconnected. I tried to call back and couldnt. I tried a second time and still couldnt.- what is the damn point? so frustrating
Stop calling me!!!!!
THIS HAS BEEN A NUMBER THAT RINGS MY PHONE AS MANY AS 11 - 12 TIMES A DAY. DOESN'T MATTER WHAT TIME, DAY OR NIGHT AND ALL WEEKEND. I DO NOT ANSWER NUMBERS I DON'T RECOGNIZE AND ESPECIALLY 800 RELATED NUMBERS. I USUALLY GOOGLE THEM WHEN I GET TRULY UPSET BUT HADN' T THIS ONE UNTIL TODAY. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR ABOUT 6 WEEKS. JUST ONE MORE OF THE MANY THAT CONTINUE TO CALL. I HAVE PHONE SERVICE THROUGH A CABLE COMPANY AND IT DOESN'T PROVIDE CALL BLOCKING. I AM ON THE DO NO CALL REGISTER AND IT APPARENTLY DOESN'T HELP IN ANY WAY THAT I CAN SEE.
This number has been calling my cell several times daily as well and when i answer the call they only hang up on me. After they call so many times in one day I can't help but to be annoyed and I have tried calling the number back several times but every time I do so, the phone rings a few times then hangs up on me. What the hell is wrong with people that they have time on their hands to sit and call and hang up every half hour... can we say get a life?
And on another note who cares if people don't answer their phones, there is no law stating that people are required to answer their phone every flippin time it rings. I don't answer unidentified calls either and I got news for ya there bud, even when I do and they wanna sell something or its a bill collector, it doesn't matter what you say or what arrangement you set up, they will still call at least once daily, they get paid to bug people. So why answer and give the same response to 7 different people 15 different times in a week? To me that seems more time consuming (wasting), but with the same results... We're not judging you for being a sucker, so back up an quit judging us for using our brains. And last I am pretty sure if someone "I actually wanted or needed to talk to called well there's about 3 ways if not more to send me a message to my cell...
Please do not call me again !!!!!!
Harassing all day long. They will not STOP. Please help !
This number calls several times a day. They never leave a message and calling them back is a waste of time because no one answers or the call does not go throough.
Any ideas how to stop those bcalls?
Pissed Off Taxpayer
Like most I keep getting calls from 888-559-6053. They never leave a message and you can't speak to a live person! They call all hours of the day. Sometimes minutes apart, other times many hours or days apart. I called back to bi*** these people out from my cell phone and a lot of good that done as now they are calling my cell phone! My numbers are on the Do Not Call List and I did file a complaint with the FTC and the FCC, but I'm sure that will do a lot of good! Not suprising Uncle Sam has gotten into the telemarketing business along with everything else under the sun! If you go to the DNCL or the FTC website and look up info in the DNCL, you will see a bill that was passed (enacted) back in 2008, and this is what you will find! Yepper, we all signed up and now Uncle Sam is SELLING our numbers to telemarketers!
Do Not Call Registrations Permanent and Fees Telemarketers Pay to Access Registry Set
Telephone numbers placed on the National Do Not Call Registry will remain on it permanently due to the Do-Not-Call Improvement Act of 2007, which became law in February 2008. More than 157 million phone numbers are on the National Do Not Call Registry.
Under the Act, the Federal Trade Commission will continue to remove telephone numbers that have been disconnected and reassigned to other customers. Consumers can delete their telephone numbers from the registry at any time by calling 1-888-382-1222 (TTY 1-866-290-4236) ? the call must be made from the telephone number they wish to delete.
The Do-Not-Call Fee Extension Act of 2007 also was enacted, setting the annual fees telemarketers will pay to access the registry in fiscal year 2009 at $54 for each area code of data accessed or $14,850 for access to every area code in the registry, whichever is less. Telemarketers may access the first 5 area codes of data at no charge, and certain exempt organizations will continue to access all data at no charge. For each fiscal year beginning after fiscal year 2009, the fees will be increased at the rate of change of the consumer price index, unless the change is less than 1 percent, in which case the fees will not be adjusted.
TO REGISTER YOUR NUMBER:
You know I am some what of a rebel and go against a lot of standards & beliefs. Why? Because I'm not going to conform to "THE MAN" as the rest you do! I refuse to be one of the cattle types lead around by "social conditioning" of what is acceptable by the rest of you! We have an election coming up in November and its time to make a stand! Vote any a***ole in government out!
Back to the phone issue. You all need to file complaints with the FTC, FCC, and your state's Attorney General! Add in there that you do want them selling our number back to telemarketers! Write you local congress men & women! Wait I know its far easier to write a bi*** statement here than to do that. If you can't don't bi***! I called my attorney and having them seek out who is behind this number and file a harrassment suit against them.
this number was called from 7 times within the last 5 days. They never leave a message. I tried to call bacl=k and it just rang and rang. No one answered.
RECEIVING LOTS AND LOTS OF PHONE CALLS!!!!!!!!!! NO MESSAGES!!!!! BUT I FIND IT OUT,
IT IS A CAR INSURANCE COMP. DON'T KNOW THE NAME!!!!
HARASSING IS ILLEGAL!!!!! THERE IS NO WAY TO STOP/ PUNISH THEM?!?!?!
They called all weekend leaving no message. Today a foreign voice said they werre responding to my inquiry at www.myinsurance.com to update my quote. #1 I have never requested an updated quote online and the person would not identify which insurance company she was working with. I told them I considered their calls harrassment and to please not call me again.
No messages- just annoying calls all the time day & night.
Always calls, never leaves message, get these calls from plenty other numbers also.
This number has been calling me and my husband for the past several months. He finally answered and they were asking for our bank account info so they could make a deposit. They said Obama was giving money to low income families. They also said there needed to be a minimum balance of 300.00 in our account for them to make the deposit. They are scam artists! Block this number from your phone!
