Called at 6am on a Saturday morning. Didn't leave a message.
****************** Now they are using the name: US Diabetic Group *********************************
The same s..t happens on daily basis. They probably set up a few hundreds on-line phone numbers, for various phony locations, using popular on-line application like google call application etc... As to how to obtain our home number, it is pretty easy nowadays. We need some coordinated effort between government agencies and private sectors to track it and stop this nonsense. I wonder how many older people sign up for it. It is sick marketing tactics.
For the past 3 weeks I have been inundated with calls from the "Senior Diabetic Group". It is always someone who cannot speak proper English and these calls have averaged five per day for three weeks in a row. I have told them that nobody in my house is diabetic but they persist. It is getting to the point where I don't even bother to answer my phone. They call not only my home phone but my cell phone also. I need to know how to get these nuisance calls stopped.
I'm not sure of the number they are calling from, but after reading the comments posted on this site, I'm sure it is the same people. They call us constantly. The person who calls has an extremely heavy accent and is barely understandable. They claim someone in my household filled out an on line form saying they had diabetes. Well, no one in my family, immediate or extended, have diabetes so I don't know where they think they got their info. We are also on the Do Not Call List.
Got 5 calls from these rude people-how do I stop them from calling?
I have been getting phone calls at least 2-4 times a day since May also from Senior Diabetic Group. On11-23-11, they were calling 3 times every hour. I finally took my phone off the hook.
I too, have told them I am on the National Do Not Call List from the begining. It's makes no differents to them. I don't know how to stop them. Any suggestions? Thank You.
p.s. I did ask for their phone number and they refused to give it to me.
I received the 6th call from this outfit about 5 minutes ago, and happened to be online when he called. Call 6 came within 72 hours of the previous 5! I don't let them have a chance to give their speal, no one in our house had diabetes, and he/she always asks for my wife or an adult child who hasn't lived here in 20 years! Told the last guy to get his call-center friends to get off the first letter of my last name and move on to the next! I'm wondering if this is some kind of scam, ID rip off, or something else, given the previous posts.
Got call from Senior Diabetic Group claiming someone from my household filled out an online form. The call actually showed as coming from 000-000-0000, not the 302 number. When I told them I was looking them up on the internet, they hung up.
I just registered complaint with FTC, which I recommend all of you do.
Keep getting calls from Senior Diabetic Group. Comes up as 001-000-00000. Very frustrating. They hang up when you ask to speak to a manager or anything. I have repeatedly asked them to take me off of their call list. They do not listen. What recourse do we have here?
THE ONLY REASON SOMEONE KEEP ON CALLING YOU BACK!!!! BECAUSE OF YOUR ATTITUDE!!! ARE YOU NOT EVEN AWARE ABOUT THE SATELLITE PHONE!!! BETTER SEARCH IT FOR YOU TO FIND OUT WHY THEY ARE CALLING FROM DELAWARE NOT IN MAINE.... MONGOLOID...
THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED ABOUT YOU! ALL THEY CONCERNED IS TO THOSE INACCURATE SUPPLIES NOW A DAYS... THEY ONLY GIVING several options,
find better products, more convenience TO PROTECT UR OVERALL HEALTH AND WELLNESS... AND BESIDES NO ONE WILL CALL US GUYS IF WE ARE JUST RESPONSIBLE AND DISCIPLINE OURSELVES. WE ARE OLD ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING.... ACT OUR AGE GUYS!!!!
you are completely wrong..... you just gave them the opportunity to call you back again b'coz of the misinformation you provided... YOU KNOW GUYS!!!! JUST PRETEND TO BE A DIABETIC!! NOTHING TO LOSE... DEFINITELY THEY WILL STOP... I UNDERSTAND THEM BCOZ I'VE BEEN THERE BEFORE... SHOW SOME SYMPATHY AND EVERYTHING FOLLOWS.....
Feed Up With These Folks
These pople call all of the time - they are either hard of hearing or stupid as we have told them over and over we do not want them to call and no one here has diabetes.
If anyone knows how to stop them from calling please post it on the internet
All day long, they have been calling, theres no end to it. They are not afraid of threats of legal action, they are female w/Jamacian accents tryng to sell me diabetic products/. I'd like to find the owner of that Company.
These people are relentless! They call numerous times and just do not listen. We do not need their support nor their services!
good luck with reporting :) you think you can do anything about it? hahahaha.. you can never catch us! losers!
I received a phone call from something called Senior Diabetic Group.
How do we stop these calls?
just answer want they want so noone can bother you anymore...
I usually have fun with the 'cold callers' but this group is just annoying. I found out they are in Maine. I asked the foreign accent where she was and she said Maryland. I replied, "Liar, you are in Maine. (Dead silence.) You are now officially noticed to remove my name from your call list, It is the law." She called the next day and I said, "You have now broken a federal law and you will soon you wished that you only had diabetes. Listen you curry smelling bi***, never call this number again." It worked.
I got a call from Senior Diabetic Group with a 508-475-1304 - same story. I blocked the calls. Can't something be done to put this group out of business?
503-457-1034 Asia Pacific. They call me 3 times yesterday and once today. The last caller got mad at me and said that I was stupid, asking them to many questions. Good. Maybe they will stop calling.

Just talked to our State Attorney General's Office, Consumer Protection Division. They are aware of this and will mail a complaint form to you to fill out. Try your states AG office as they might be doing the same thing. This firm is trying to bully seniors and/or scam them into getting diabetic supplies at a lower cost. Because they are calling from a foreign clearing house, they are apparently not under any of our Federal Communication regulations. The agent at Consumer Protection said to just hang up. The "Do Not Call" lists mean nothing to them. Threats of harrassment suits also mean zip. JUST HANG UP.

I tried to keep them on the line for as long as possible, asking questiong. They are also calling from the following number: 508-475-1304. All I learned is that they are OUT OF DELAWARE. Wouldn't even give me the name of the town. I asked to speak to an American. They were "...all in a meeting." I asked to speak to his supervisor. Again, they were "...all in a meeting." This company is bad business. Don't give them any information. Keep them talking as long as possible, ask questions, and take up their time. Report any information you learn. Call your state's ATTORNEY GENERAL. They are using public utilities to call, and this is harrassment.
My three calls in one day were from 1-508-475-1304 but they were the same "Senior Diabetes Group" scammers, and they did not even know where they were calling from. This is such a wicked scam!
I don't know if it was from this same phone number, but I just got a call - The woman identified herself as Barbara and said she got my name from an online questionaire that identified someone in my household as having diabetes. She said she was representing Senior Diabetic Group, the only group in the United States that is interesting in helping diabetics with their disease, glucose meters, etc.
I may have been born at night, but it wasn't last night and I don't like being bothered by salespeope or scammers and have been on the Do Not Call list for ages. So I turned the tables and started asking her questions. She claimed to be Barbara Davies who came from Scotland. Her accent sounded more like Philippino to me; it definitely wasn't a Scottish burr and I told her so. She claimed to be calling from Georgetown, Delaware. She could not tell me who had run the "online questionairre" where my phone number appeared, nor who had sponsored the questionaire. I demanded to be removed from their calling list and she stated that she could not do so.
Then I asked to speak with her supervisor. She got very nervous at this point and asked why. I told her that she called and bothered me and II had a right to speak with her supervisor. Seconds later, a male with a very strong accent came on the phone. When pressed, he told me his name was Stanli. He claimed to be a foreigner here on an employment visa and came from Japan. He refused to answer when I asked how he got here, what kind of visa, etc. He insisted that he worked for Senior Diabetes Group; I asked what I'd find if I googled it and told him I didn't believe him. I told him I thought he was trying to scam me. He swore he was telling the truth and that he was Catholic.
The conversation lasted quite a long time before he started trying to hang up on me "because I was becoming upset" he claimed. By then I had completed my Google search and told him nothing was found. I also threatened to contact ICE to report his possible illegal employment - he couldn't get off the phone fast enough!
I get three or four calls a day from Senior Diabetic group. I tried being nice. I tried being nasty to which they started mocking me. Extremely frustrated. Something has to be done.
Same call from Senior Diabetic Group. Sounds like a scam. Can not confirm any information asked for,. Calling from Georgetown Delaware her name was Lauren Lewis - with a foreign accent- hard to understand.
I am reporting them to the State Attorney General's office in Raleigh. You can do it online.
these people call me 5 times a day. Lady hardly speaks English. I have tried everything from telling her I have Tourettes Syndrome and talking so filthy it embarassed me to just hanging up on her. Last call I told her I am diabetic & wanted her business, where could I reach them. She said Georgetown, Deleware but no telephone number. Asked how we can do business without a number and if she were calling me on a tin can. She hung up.
