Get 3 calls a day on my cell phone.. do nto answer them, I dont know who it is and my cell phone is my minutes, my dime. I am on the DNC list, doesnt stop them
Dave (unintelligible) called verifying an address then hung up. Jerk.
Irritated beyond belief
They called three times. Disgusting low-lifes.
Asked for too much information from a doctor's office
Called trying to verify address, ownership, type of business, management personell, phone and fax number information. I didn't give them anything but when I asked them to explain why they needed the information and what type of company it was, they hung up on me.
Called physican's office to "verify" address. Asked for fax #, we refused to give. Not the first time we have received a call from this #.
No message, number still lists as disconnected. We are not a doctor's office, but a business in the medical field. Wondering if they are shopping for shady medical practices willing to deal in something which is even shadier? Maybe talk to you a bit and see if you sound like a prospect? Am I taking this way too far? :) Will be sure to answer and give the caller a hard time next time.
I also got a call from this number on my cell. A man asked if there was a work number he could reach me at and used the prefix Dr. in front of my name. When I asked what this was in reference to, he said "thank you" and hung up. Very strange. What is this all about?
Called and identified herself as updating Continuum Healthcare's database of providers... now I just started working for a Continuum hospital, Beth Israel Medical Center as a PA, and I didn't think it shady. And she had my my address in front of her which she read back to me. Hmmm.
Called and asked for name and information of practice to receive faxes. Sounds like telemarketer... unless building database of information for fraud... verified information of practice...
Call to my cell phone with no message. I am an MD
Sick of it
Just received THREE calls in a row from a woman "just wanting to verify a couple of things." Hung up on her twice and the third time told her that I turned her into the registry and she is to take our name and number of her list and not call again.
I think the Do Not Call Registry is a joke.
same...got a call from these guys...woman asking if its my office or private number. When asked who she was she she said some ska cme. She asked if I wanted number off the database and I said yes. Sounded shady...I called back and the recording says the number is disconnected or no longer in service. Someone posted SKA website address above...so it seems they maintain mailing lists of docs and sell. Anyways, bothersome it is. I guess they might get out numbers from the state medical boards listing that make the contact info public records (ie CA)
received call from female asking if this was a medical office or cell phone. When told cell she said sorry and hung up then called my home residence # and hung up again. Tried to call back and the number is disconnected.
Caller tries to get info about the doctor's office, so they must be targeting medical offices: I just gave them a bunch of fake info like Dr. Dweezel Dumbo and he took the info like it was serious. Weirdo. Maybe not a good idea but hey, gotta have some fun while at work.
Same thing, A female called and asked about if this is a doctors office and then hung up. I tried to call back and got a message that the # is not working. WTF?
Caller is SK&A (a mailing list company) claims to phone verify all their mailing lists. www.skainfo.com
Number is from SK&A (a mailing list company). They claim to phone verify their lists. website: www.skainfo.com
I thought it was a friend of mine. Called my cell, and said something about verifying info for "CME directory." I was asked if this was my business phone or office. I said it was my cell. Then asked if I was a physician or nurse. I asked who are you? He would not identify himself when I inquired further.He hurriedly hung up. He left me with a bad feeling.
Official sounding female asked to verify information about name of physician and my work location. I asked who she was and she hurriedly spoke of "CME something." Sounded sketchy so I asked for more information and gave her the number of our operator. She called back a few minutes later and said "oh, sorry" then hung up. I tried to return the call and was told that the number is unavailable. Either a fraud, or a middleman searching trying to find out information without leaving a record..
Called to verify the address of my drug store. Then called back and lied that they were calling from a doctors office. Very shady.
Strange recorded monologue about visiting Vegas. Caller hung up after a minute, then called again a minute later.
She called and asked for my name and whether it was a business or home phone. After getting the answer she said Sorry to bother you and hung up . When i tried to call back the phone was not in service.
got a call from a female at this number today. asked same questions regarding business or residence, when told business, asked for address, seemed very vague stating only that she was from "CME cerification center" she new the doctors name and the number she called is not a generally listed one. Very strange... Left a bad taste in my mouth so I hung up on her mid conversation.
# called, no message. i returned call, # disconnected. dodgy....
Do not answer calls. Lady would not identify herself. Very authoritative that she must get the information. Wanted a lot more information. States that she belongs to a CME corporation. When questioned to identify, she hung up. I would be cautious to answer calls. Our number is on "do not call" list.
Get repeated calls from this number to doctor's office to verify info. When I asked them to send request in writing I was told they could not do that.
This number called me but did not leave a message. When I tried to call the number back, I got a message saying the line had been disconnected! Doesn't sound too legit...
Called, asked if this was a business or a residence, then when told it was a residence, apologized and hung up. Left me wondering what that was about?!?!? which led to this site.
"TIFFANY" CALLED TO VERIFY INFORMATION. I TOLD HER I WAS ON "DO NOT CALL" LIST. SHE REPEATED HERSELF. I TOLD HER TO GO **** HERSELF. SHE HUNG UP.
I SUGGEST THIS APPROACH.
