They call asking for the parents of a high school child in the home. They are selling SAT prep books saying our child signed up for them.(he didnt) When I told him No he hung up on me. Received another call this week. I said I already said No to this a few weeks ago and said the guy hung up on me. THIS ONE said "Like Im going to do now?" and hung up. DO NOT TAKE THESE CALLS. Or I recommend picking it up and hanging up on them every time to waste THEIR time.
My conversation: "I'm sorry I'm at work" He replies, "I'm at work, too and I can talk" I replied, "Yeah...that's probably the worst sales tactic I've ever heard in my life." He said, "You know why, I'm not selling anything - Bye!" What an idiot...if you want to spend your time prank calling people (hopefully this isn't his REAL job) have at it, but it won't be at my expense!
They bought your kid's phone number from the College Board (owners/administrators of SAT, PSAT) or from ACT, Inc (ACT, PLAN, EXPLORE tests). Tell your kids do NOT put a phone number on their test documents.
It is total BS that these companies can make money selling our phone numbers to snake oil salesmen who will try to convince unsuspecting parents they have the solution to getting our kids into college, scholarships, etc.
They call but a lot of times and when called back you get put on a long hold and then it disconnects. I picked up one time and a super rude person tried to sell college preparatory material and started verbally abusing me and putting me down when I politely declined in not being interested in it at that time.
They need to be prosecuted for verbal abuse they put people though for just declining to buy their services.
They keep calling and saying rude things
Five days - five calls per day - no one at other end of phone
guess they are trying to sell something
Yep. Same stuff happening at my house. I put my number on the Do Not Call registry, but they still call. Can someone offer a solution for all of us? I want to make them stop.
They only want to speak with my parents its really weird. They call atleast three times a day.
I've had 16 calls from this same number in the past week. A few times I answered and the caller immediately hung up. I did get an answer one time though. The conversation was rather short, and it went like this.
"Hi, is Jake's mom or dad home?"
"Depends who's calling?"
"No it doesn't, I can talk to them no matter who is calling."
"Let me rephrase that. Who's calling?"
"...Jim... Can you.. Elaborate?"
And he hung up.
909 259 0274 info
Guys don't answer and don't give them your information. I got some info from this caller complaint website and it said :
"Spoofed Numbers: Caution, 909-259-0274 is a "spoofed" number, which means that whoever called you "tricked" your caller ID to display an incorrect phone number. Telemarketers do this so you cannot complain, but they failed... you can still file a complaint here to fight back against unethical telemarketers. "
hope it helped
"Jim" said after being denied the ability to talk to my parents - "Sorry kid, the phone call is about you - not for you."
I've been getting calls religiously from this phone number around 11am then again around 5pm or 8pm everyday. I always miss it, but when I finally did get to answer, this is the conversation:
"Hi, is Vaughn's mom or dad available?"
"No, they aren't, but this is Vaughn."
"Okay, thank you." Then they hang up.
I don't get it... It's my phone number not either of my parents..
Calls my house every day for the past month, breathes heavily but doesn't speak, then hangs up
Same! Sorta freaked me out.
Same number called me asking what the h*** I did to Miranda (he was v. emotional), then hung up when I asked him what he was talking about. I mean, who the heck is Miranda?
I've gotten 4 calls now. Still haven't answered my phone when they call. Is it best to ignore them or try to put a stop to it?
I am having the same issues. Many hang up calls, many more we haven't bothered to pick up and one where he wanted info on my teenage daughter and hung up when I didn't give it to him. This has been going on since April. I called the Ontario Police and explained my situation and that a large number of complaints have been issued on these types of call boards. They didn't seem to give a $%#^. Told me to contact my local police and have them deal with it.
theese people have called me multiple times for almost a month now, when i answer there is always someone on the other line asking to speak to my parents, they specifically say, 'im calling to speak to sierra's parents' i say they're not here right now can i take a message, and they just say that they will try again. O.o
They just started calling me and I just thought it was like16 candles, where the guy calls Molly Ringwald and he keeps getting her grandparents and they finally tell him that they can hear him breathing, except their isn't any breathing just dead silence and then a click. It gets quite annoying.
1-909-259-0274 Has called me sooooooo many times on the past month. Someone make it stop!!! Whenever I answer there is silence.
This number has been repetitively calling. They call in the morning, in the afternoon, and in the evening. When we bother to pick it up (since we now know the number from Ontario, CA -- 909-259-0274!), there is no one there -- not even someone to whom you may speak and tell them to STOP calling. When you call them back in the vein hopes of trying to speak with a stupidvisor, you are put on hold and after 4 minutes 5 second of lovely classical music where you are asked repeatedly to stay on the line for an agent, you are subsequently disconnected without the satisfaction of speaking with anyone. Who the heck do we call in order to STOP them?!!! How can we get their home numbers so we can call them at home?!!!
Repeated phone calls from 909-259-0274. No one on line when answering phone call.
Call everyday , leaves no messages on the answering machine . Very annoying ! Caller Id says Ontario .California.
My oriental grandmother, who can speak English fine, picked up the phone and this number (909-259-0274) asked her for my parents. In return she said, "Who is this?" They then replied, "Why do you not speak English?"
Never have I heard something as rude as this. I tried calling back to complain, but I was stuck on hold for a few minutes when I finally hung up.
Caller ID says Pomona area no message left
I have been getting called from the same number for 4 days now.... They called me 11 times and whenever I answer they say nothing and hang up. They even left a voicemail and no one talked on the other end. I tried calling but i was disconnected.
This phone called and a man was looking for my minor daughter. They have been calling for almost everyday. When answered no one will answer you back except this morning looking for the parents of my daughter.
JIM DID THE SAME EXACT THING,
Rude obnoxious person, called and also tried to start a fight.
When I asked where they were from and what they wanted, "Jim" asked if I was having a bad day.
Does Jim really have nothing better to do?
Finally talked with them. They are a College Prep Experts. John was very nice, but claimed they recently got this number and CID info is not being transmitted and it takes awhile for phone companies to pick-it-up. Also stated that they had issues with the calls being transferred from the auto-dialer to them and it wasn't connecting correctly they could hear us, but not hear them. Hope this helps.
