This number keeps calling my private, unlisted number. I do not answer.
Wife has numerous of these on the bill.
My son is getting calls from 999-999-9999 on MY cell phone. The first woman gave me a number to call back. They say they are trying to serve my son and gave me a number and case number for him to call back. I'll be willing to bet good money if he calls back, they will tell him if he puts x amount of $ on his credit card, then he won't be served. This is a scam. These people get your name, address and number off the internet and then try to say they are trying to serve you and will someone be home over the age of 18 who can sign. In my son's case, he hasn't lived at the address they are saying they are trying to serve him at for over 3 years. Beware!!!
Received a call with a recorded message alerting people that an elderly man was lost in the area. Then they called back with a recorded message saying that the man had been found and taken to the hospital. So this type of call in my area (Placer County, Ca) is an "Amber Alert" type of call. I believe they called a few months ago when we were having tornados in the area with a tornado warning.
I just stared getting this call to its a scammer just like all the others ever since bummer its been gone wild with them I never answer a # I don't know
I received a call from this number on my landline at 1:10am. Nothing like any of the above. Mine left a message that said they were the Highway Patrol looking for a missing child. I have never heard of calls from Highway Patrol like this. I let the call go to voice mail. Who wants to answer a phone at that time of morning when they are asleep and the phone wakes you up!
Annoyed In Cali
Received call at 11:34am. No message left. Number blocked.
They are definitely calls from a person intensionally restricting their number. I would look into this.
My sister Bering my nan up
I answered out of curiosity because of #. Caller started pitching Home Security System. When I told him I had one he said " Stick it up your xxx! and hung up. Guess he was having a bad day!
got messages from 999-999-9999 and they come at all hours , if you answer they hang up but text messages are all symbols and numbers , i text stop ,it did not work ,i called my service provider to block it worked for a couple of days ,now has started again , if anyone finds out the cause behind this please post it here or how to stop it ,i just got a new phone and can not afford another but am seriously considering trashing this one !!!! please help make it stop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Same here. I finally picked up and they hung up on me. Must be very important.
No message, they just keep calling. I do not answer unfamiliar numbers.
I also got a call from them!! Did you find out anything about the company or what they were doing?? My guess is that they are scamming people or something??
Got a few of these 999 calls in the last few days. They never leave a message and I've not been around to answer. Since it's a spoofed number I guess all our responses could be different.
So. . .people can route their calls through 999 999 9999 so that they are untraceable, but could it still be a legitimate request? My call told me a complaint had been filed and call a certain number or else etc.ect. . Is it always a scam or could it be legit just wishing to be unanimous?
9999999999...is a restricted #. They dial *67 before they call and shows up on bill as the 9s & on phone as restricted.
Just received a call from this number, I let it go to voice mail. It was a motivational call from Mary Kay Cosmetics - for which I am a new consultant. Even so, afraid to call back on my cell or land line to see if recording or live person comes on. Hope this helps.
Unavailable. Somebody said it is from India and about your computer. This is the third number in a row for these kind of calls. I wish this was illegal. I never answer if I don't know the caller. Have not checked for a message but the other two did not leave one. Leave me along!
Yesterday,I heard my cell phone ring, but didn't get it out of my purse before it became a 'missed call.
Today, on my home phone I saw on the caller screen there was another call incoming from the same number.
I did not answer.
They called, I googled it. Some sites say it's Burlington, most people said ITS BLOCKBUSTER. YouTubed it as well, said it could be a prank caller changing caller ID or it could be an international call. They called around 3:10 on May 2, 2014 on my home phone. Hope there stopped!! Maybe it's one of the Jamaican people who is hacking and prank calling. It also said that the person breaths when the reciever awnsers. Also they have asked other people for personal info like your computers info or your credit card!! Please stop them !!! I'm freaked out the call said unknown but I'm guessing prank or telemarketer
It is 100% explainable. Just tried it last night. I blocked on my Iphone, my own number and called my GF sittng right beside me. Her display said "no caller ID", she answered it and we talked fro 15 seconds.... did it twice in a row. She tried to call back by hitting the entry in her recent call log but couldn't.
Today her Verizon usage report said 999-999-9999.... so it clearly is result of when a person answers the call from a privately / purposefully hidden caller.
It may be a lover, a friend with a hidden ID (but gave the receiving person his/her # even though its private), or a scammer, but not everyone uses it for adultery etc..... paranoia.
It may also have said 999 because its Iphone to Iphone..... if it were a non Iphone to an Iphone it may just say "unavailable" on the Verizon usage report....
I believe these are hackers who are trying to access e mail accounts or financial records that you might have linked to your phone. if you have the option put them on an automatic reject list on your phone. Do not answer these calls not even for a few seconds because it doesnt take long to break into your system.
I got the call of my life (from someone I've carried the torch for for AGES) and picked it up and was on for 13 seconds before we got disconnected, and I did not get a call-back # and have not heard back form the person yet. I tried calling my carrier (T-Mobile) to see if there was any way they could identify the # and they said it showed as a "999" number on their end, which was "jargon", and meant the number could be international, or Google Voice, (so possibly Skype), or was somehow set as untraceable, except in cases where someone had legal reasons to have the number identified, in which case it would be possible. So an individual can somehow set their number to show as "999".
I am weary of any numbers I don't know having trouble with my ex trying gto make fake accounts in my name and trying to getinto my other accounts and trying to install spyware on me so wanted to ba sure what it was
I don't have Blockbuster, and 999-999-9999 appeared on my landline caller ID this morning at 7:30!! I also don't have any "bill collectors" calling.......very strange!!!!!!
just got the same call on our home phone. my wife answered it and they said it was our local drug store and some meds were ready??? she called the 999 999 9999 back to see what was going on and they answered saying they were a texting outfit and was she interested in them?? she hung up.. did not not to call back on these phony numbers..have to wait and see what the phone bill says when it comes in....yikes!!
I got a call from 999-999-9999 & the person with an Indian accent informed me that my internet connection was being hacked. I hung up after he persisted in arguing with me that he could stop the hacking.
