Caller ID just shows Services for B...always a hangup...once a week...
this is a number i got a call from saying i have filed for online payday loan which i didn't and they told me to go buy a greendot money card and give them the info and i would receive a loan in the amount of 3000 dollars. It is a scam so watch out for this number. Also the guy called me back and left me a horrible message saying if i sucked him off he would pay me $500.00 and to f*** myself. The guy that left the message was named Lucas. 2392052251
So tired of continually receiving these same unwanted phone calls!
For each and every unwanted call, please report at both Federal Communications Commission (FCC) websites.
'Squeaky wheel gets the grease.' Please squeak loud!
I wonder if all the numbers we all keep getting these calls from can be collected and then we devise a mass call in all at once -or perhaps we hire someone to design a denial of service system that attacks these numbers...
Just a dream...
So here is the information on the company calling you and a telephone number for the owner's cellphone. Feel free to give him a call and a piece of your mind... Maximum Security Alarm / Sacramento / Andrew Higgins. Maximum Security Alarm, based out of Sacramento, California (1010 Hurley Way, Suite 525, Sacramento, CA 95825). Owned and ran by Andrew Higgins, his [removed:lang] brother David Higgins and their [removed:lang] father Dennis Higgins. Is just one of many scams this Higgins family and their friends have been doing for a long time, at least 8 years for this company. The awful things they do on a regular basis are just way too much for me to mention and invest any additional time into. They have the most complaints for any alarm company and probably any company for that matter and they wouldn't have this many complaints, especially back to back to complaints unless it were all true. Save yourself a hassle and don't do business or interact with these people on any level. You can reach the owner Andy Higgins on his cellphone @ 916-223-6311. He will tell you that his company in no way calls people on the Do Not Call Registry. I believe that's a lie because if you google Maximum Security Alarms and look at a few of the RipOff Reports and such, you will see action has been taken against them for doing just that. The following describes a pending government action that has been formally brought by a government agency but has not yet been resolved. We are providing a summary of the government's allegations, which have not yet been proven.
On February 5, 2013, the State of Missouri filed a petition for preliminary and permanent injunctions, restitution, civil penalties and other court orders against Maximum Security Alarm. The petition alleges, in part, that Maximum Security Alarm engaged in a pattern of outbound telephone calls violating Missouri's No-Call List Laws by contacting telephone lines placed on Missouri's Telemarketing No-Call List in an attempt to solicit customers for home security systems. The petition also alleges that Maximum Security Alarm caused the telephone to ring repeatedly in an annoying, abusive or harassing manner by soliciting consumers after they had made known they did not wish to receive calls and utilized methods to circumvent caller identification services. The petitions seeks to enjoin Maximum Security Alarm from making telephone solicitations to those who have placed themselves on Missouri's No-Call List, require MSA to pay $5,000 per violation of the No-Call List Laws, pay the state for all investigative and prosecution costs, and to pay the State of Missouri an amount equal to 10 percent of the total restitution ordered against Defendant. This matter is currently pending. Caller: Maximum Security Systems Call Type: Telemarketer
The problem is that these companies are often overseas and its generally impossible to do anything.
My name is Robert Harmon. I am an attorney that specializes in telemarketing issues and is presently investigating Maximum for their telemarketing practices
If anyone receives robo-calls from Maximum, please record the time, date and the caller ID info.If you can take a picture of the caller ID info with your cell phone camera, that is even better.
Then please contact me at 1-203-542-5619 . With your help, we can put a permanent stop to this.

FINALLY I tracked down these jerkwads....you can reach them by dialing 925-420-1419 and hitting 1. You will be directed to a human who will try to sell you on a "free" alarm system which you pay a monthly charge for monitoring. The company is Maximum Security Alarms and the call center is located at 1010 Hurley Way, Suite #525, Sacramento, California 95825. A second number for them which is their operations center and will be answered by a human (Rebecca among others) is 916-437-0900. They are very helpful in that the telemarketers that have no regard for the law, the do not call registry or your time are the idiots in Sacramento.
If you have been relentlessly harassed by this company, feel free to give them a call. If you plan to be aggressive over the phone (I'm not suggesting that), I would recommend you dial *67 first so that your number is not displayed on their caller ID. Kind of like the same crap they do to us.
Let's give them a little of their own medicine and perhaps they will finally get the message.
These jokers have a new scam now dealing with medical alert systems. You can call them and reach a human being direct at 573-568-7760. I "bribed" one of their telemarketers with the offer of a fake job in order to get that number so please feel free to call these idiots and give them a piece of your mind.
Called 3-1-2013 @ 14:54, Rachael and her identity thiefs again.
I DON'T ANSWER THE PHONE
This is basically a reply to all of the posts on this page, not just the one I am replying to.
A few words of advice about phone numbers you don't know, first, don't answer the phone, they will just hang up or leave their brief message, which you can delete. Second, a lot of these calls are coming from prepaid cell phone numbers which cannot be tracked, thus they cannot be stopped. Additionally, international addresses or international area codes are not in the FCC's enforcement jurisdiction but may be under the FTC or Dept of Justice.
Telemarketers are like traffic violators anywhere. You may get a speeding ticket or warning today, but tomorrow you are going to speed again. It does not correct your driving. Telemarketers are the same way, they may get warned today, but all they do is change numbers and they are right right back at it. Criminals will be criminals. Your legitimate companies are going to honor the Do-Not-Call list but its the scammers and crooks that will do everything they can to make a buck. If you cannot track a criminal you cannot take action against them.
Gret idea,you should tell your congressmen this idea!
More of the Card Services wanting to lower the interest rates on the credit cards you don't even have... Yes, they really stopped these calls - liars.
Ok people it is payback time!
You can call back the offices of "Account Services" or "Card Services" at 941-312-2236. If you want to have some fun with these rectal bungholes (and have some time to waste), first dial *67 so they won't know your number. Call them and tell them you are responding to have your credit card interest rates lowered. They will ask you a few questions and you may feel free to us the below information which is ficticious but close enough to interest them....
Credit Card is Mastercard and the bank is Citicard. The card number is 5588 3200 1566 5863. The expiration date of 9/2016. The telephone number on the back of the card for Citi Business Cards is 800-732-6000. The last four numbers of your social security number is 0309. The zipcode for your mailing address is 62220. If they ask, your name is Ricky R. Currier (if you're female make it Ricki).
They will take this information and ask you to hold. They then will call the 800 number for Citi to try to verify the card and of course it will come up as invalid information. The rep will come back on the phone and ask you to reverify the card number....change one digit. He'll say "Oh that's what the problem was. Please hold while I check again".
All of this will take about 10 minutes of your time. When the b****ead comes back the second time to tell you there seems to be a problem, tell him "Oh all the information I gave you is fake. I wanted to waste your time like you have wasted my time by calling my home/office for the past 3 years" LOL it really upsets them and you can expect to hear some foul language. Have fun.
I have no credit cards. Don't leave message just call
These slimeballs have changed their strategy now for these card services calls. They have switched their caller id to "VisaAssist" to make you believe it's a call from a legit credit card company. We don't answer calls to numbers we do not recognize without doing web searches. This number has a huge listing of complaints that the government will do nothing about.

I would certainly agree with you that if a person is going to use the method I used, of wasting the "card services" scammer's time, to stop the annoying calls, to not let the scammers know they've been had ---they can get nasty. The best way is to sound sincere and a little bit slow and keep them on the line as long as possible. After a few times of "acting the part" your number WILL be removed from their robodialer list, as the scammers don't want their time wasted when they could be cheating someone else--at least that has been my experience,and that of others I have corresponded with who tried that method.
multiple robocalls fom this number in the past few weeks
This message from "Sophie" contains a link to website to sell you something. BEWARE OF SOPHIE!
Notice all the miss-spelled words in the text. Those are instant red flags that the writer may be from out of the country or or just recently released from prison or worse.
Always be wary of anything that looks "fishy".
Listen whoever is looking for relief.
Our local tv station just did a report about these types of calls.
They usually come from other countries and are routed through so many different servers in many different countries that have no laws against them or do not have "do not call list", that they are completely untraceable. The FCC is powerless here.
The callers may seem like they are after info but if you even answer or push a single button to ask to be put on a list, well you instantly confirm to the caller you have a valid number. Then your number will be sold to many scam artists worldwide.
Bite your tongue and say nothing if you make the mistake of answering before you check the caller ID.
If you don't have caller ID, get it. It's well worth the 5 bucks or so a month "IF" you're being harassed.
Also, some phone companies have a program to "block unlisted or unidentified" callers. Call your phone company if you're having a problem and ask their advice. Many phone companies have different options to deal with this problem.
The news program featured one lady who received several calls, per hour, daily. EVERYDAY!
She was always responding the to the callers prompts to push a number to be put on the do not call list. It actually is an action that will insure more and different callers will call you with all sorts of scams.
She called the news station because she was on the FCC do not call list and it was not helping. They investigated with her phone company. The phone company told them she had the option to block the calls from even ringing at her house. She didn't know she had that option. After she did that in this first month the calls dropped dramatically.
The reason she still got some calls is that some callers/scams/marketers will give their "company or phone number" a fake caller ID like "Fortune Distribution" or "TOP INC", etc., to fool the call blocker and you into thinking it's a legitimate call.
If you don't know the number or the caller ID name, don't EVER answer. We get suckered into answering because we have hopes that someone on the other end actually "Wants to talk to us". We all want to be popular or wanted, so we fall into answering or even RUNNING to the phone when it rings! Be careful.
Get a cheap answering machine and stop answering any call you don't know and let the machine answer while you listen. Any scam will never leave a message "to be recorded" as evidence against themselves.
I have a pay as you go phone so those bad calls COST me every time. I had to wise-up too.
If you chat with them it cost money on your end often and it confirms that there is a person on the other end that may answer. Even if one person in the family gives them a bunch of phony info and leads them on a wild goose chase, the next time a calls comes to that number, their spouse or child or elderly parent may answer and unknowingly be fooled into giving out info or more. So playing the game with them your family/household can still lose. It's not worth the risk. If you p****off the caller and all they're looking to do is get legitimate numbers to sell, you have just insured they will list your number to sell, or perhaps even set their computer to call you repeatedly. Those on this list giving advice to talk to them may even be phone scam artist employing one part of their plan to "Catch YOU".
Get an answering machine and stop being irritated and controlled by the deceivers of the world hiding in their dark little worlds.
Light and Blessings to you, Wiser
just call never leaves a message three times aday
Not just one!
It is a network of criminals. Not just one. You can visit the FCC website and they have a LIST of companies individuals who have been caught. The sad thing is that this operation is easily set up so the crime continues. We need better detection and better laws combatting this issue. There is a link to the right of this page under Latest News that shows the efforts of the FCC to shut down these criminals. Educating the public is vital.
They are criminals
These people who are calling you are criminals. They dont care about you nor the law. Since when has a burgular broke into someone's house thought of not breaking into someone's house becuase it was illegal or that htey may be offending the homeowner? Same applies here. Criminals dont care about the law nor you.
The problem is they use MANY numbers.If you block one,they use another.Its a joke.I have complained to the "DO NOT CALL LIST" at least 20 times with these 417 numbers...They keep on calling......
What part of "they are criminals" that you dont understand?
Criminals dont care.
CALLED, BUT DOES NOT LEAVE MESSAGE. THIS IS ALSO NOT A NUMBER FOR ANY CREDIT CARD THAT ONE HAS
