Thanks so much to all who post here. I sit down about once a week and check all the unknown numbers against this site. Most of them are listed as scams and I just block the caller on my iphone. This has dramatically helped to cut down on these parasitic contacts. Just wanted you to know I appreciate those that make the effort to help eliminate the economic motivation for these idiots.
getting calls from this number and than hang up one time not goggle looking for a payment ha good luck
pissed off with telemarketers at my work
Calls 3 to 4 times every day! They need to respect people who have a business to run and quit with the useless calling. They don't speak anyway. Glad I read this page because they are going to get a real surprise next time they call me. LOL!!
please dont hang up, i did lol
I don't get wasting precious business time messing with total strangers on the phone. Just hang up and block their call.
Did not look like a number I knew so I let it ring. Caller did not leave any message. Put number block on this.
As a business person myself here is a fairly efficient solution I use. The minute you get one of the typical tells that it's a scam call simply hang up. Do not say goodbye, do not explain yourself, just hang up and put them on your blocked call list. If you don't know how to block calls you probably shouldn't be in business
I think that Google has way to much intrusion in our daily lives. We all need to quit feeding the Google machine. I have already switched to DuckDuckGo as my new search engine and closed all of mt Google email accounts.
I too have been getting these calls repetitiously. When I googled the number there was an ad at the top that I clicked on. It's for some lawyers trying to do a class action on these folks. They list 8 phone numbers that seem to be related with this one on the list. Here it is just in case

I get multiple calls like this every day. Panasonic makes a landline phone that can block up to 250 numbers. It can be set up so that the phone won't ring if you have blocked the number. Definitely worth the money!
Our business gets this call two or three times everyday. The Google scam call, that has nothing to do with google. There is about 100 of these scam services out there. I contacted Google Corporate, they are aware of this problem, but currently has NO intrest in taking action to stop the problem. Just advised to HANG UP ON THE CALL !!!!!!!
stop the madness
Spam, spam, spam ,and spam. And not the funny Monty Python kind either. Didn't even stay on long enough to find out what they were selling. The government could stop this if they wanted to.
Lynn, Scott the spoofer is spoofing (lying to you). He (and that so-called company) has no intention never-ever to remove your number for the list. He was just joshing.
I just spoke with the manager of this company. Company name is Scout.
They cannot put me on a do not call list because I wasn't calling from the # that their system was auto dialing. They said to press the # on the recording to be removed. There is never a recording when they call; it 's only the sound that someone hung up.
I cannot call from that # as we are on a trunk system. All out-going calls go through one line. My line doesn't show as outgoing. I tried to explain that to this manager & he said that he wasn't allowed to "re-write code". There is not way to enter a # into the database.
There ought to be a law...oh wait. There already is a law against this.
I always have "Bobby" answer. "Bobby" is a "slow" adult who is "painful" in his speech. "He...He...he...he...he...ll..o. M...m...m..m..my n...n...n..ame is B...B...B...Bobby. Wh...Wh...Whhat's your...your..your na...na...name?" You get the point. Most apologize and say they will remove me from their list. I also answer as "Father Duffy, Our Lady of Perpetual Motion. How can God help you today?" An Irish accent helps.
} can't figure out how they can call
A criminal with an autodialer loads sales lead data into said device and lets it rip. At some point your number is called. No-call registration does not render a phone number invisible or untouchable. It's not an active call block or a sentry on duty. A DNCR-compliant telemarketer *makes a choice* to avoid calling. A scammer with a cheap hustle makes a choice not to care about your privacy.
They call me everyday and sometimes at night. I have been on the do not call list for a long time and can't figure out how they can call. I am so tired of the calls that I have put them on my rejected call listing on my cell phone. Geez get a life and leave me alone.
Rang wireline. Call blocked. Second call of the day.
I just answer and don't say anything, you can usually tell if it's a telemarketer and not a robo call by all the voices. Then just to F--k with them I say my city's name followed by police dept. Like Dallas Police Department. They either hang up or stumble on their words. Unfortunately I have a mail order company so unless caller id says who it is I have to answer, but now I am getting to know some of the #'s.
Rang wireline. Call blocked.
Rang wireline. Call blocked. Comments in this and other threads lament that call blockers are becoming less and less effective in defeating these pests. While it is true these jerks keep changing numbers, thus both by-passing other saved blocked numbers and surely filling up the limited capacity of the blocking devices, one can extend the usefulness of the blockers, if the device is programable. Some people on these threads are blocking entire area codes. Since the spoofed calls concentrate in a limited number of area codes for any given recipient, this will work to reduce annoyance. This is a brute force solution that cuts off possibilities for legitimate callers, In my case, I am programing area codes and the first one or two digits of the exchange. This is working quite well, without shutting out 8 million other phones in an area code. At some point, technology will overcome meager efforts to thwart the spammers, unless the telcos and the feds decide to become proactive in drafting legislation exempting these calls from free speech protections, getting rid of the C-NAM reimbursements (local telephone company pays calling party telephone company a tiny fee for use of calling party CID info), and allowing/insisting that telcos create blacklists of both calling numbers and the telcos/DID/VoIP providers who trade in this.
Caller keeps callin and hanging up? Very disruptive to my work day.
I get this call at my business alot so don't answer it. I could be a scam
Called our office 2/6 - did not answer - have blocked their future calls.
These a - holes have been busy robo dialing!
They called, I did not answer, no message left. BLOCKED!
Called and left a 4sec blank msg. 99% chance of telemarketer.
949-281-0045 is an illegal robodialer claiming to be Google. It's nothing more than another SEO scam company. The Caller ID shows Laguna Beach CA. The call is a woman's voice with a British accent. She starts out with - Please, do not hang up. This is Google calling about a serious problem involving your business listing. To speak to a certified customer service representative, press 1 now. Hung up and added the number to our blocklist. Reporting the call to the FCC.gov website, as well as to Google directly, and to the Laguna Beach Attorney General's office as this call clearly violates numerous federal laws.
Called again 2/4 @ 4:56 pm
and again 2/5 @ 11:10 am
949.281.0045 Won't stop calling me!! Also uses 949.885.3614.
Say WHAT? Firstly you insist that readers at 800notes not call your number. Makes no sense.
Secondly, what makes even less sense is that you POSTED your phone number on a public website. Yet you claim to want less calls. All you've done is guarantee you'll get more calls. D'oh!
