I just received a call from "ESG", completed their survey with all "3's" then waited on the line for a travel specialist. I didn't press anything but was then disconnected. I was searching ESG while I was on the line then found this forum after the call ended. The number came up:
Got a call from these lugnuts. Please take them out. With extreme violence, if at all possible.
I have received the same survey now four times. The first two times I opted out. When the call came in for the third time, I decided to take the survey so I could ask a "live" person to remove me from their calling list. After the first question was asked and I answered by pushing what I considered the correct answer, the same question continued to repeat. When I had answered the first question for the fifth time I hung up, figuring I could waste my time in more productive ways. The call came in again today and I decide to try again, thinking perhaps they were having equipment trouble on the previous occasion. I answered the first question and as before it continue to repeat. Now I'm thinking that the rating I have given is not the rating the group behind the survey wants to receive. Sure enough when I gave the lowest ratings to the Democrats question, the survey let me continue on to question two. I also gave the Republications the lowest rating, but the question repeated until I gave them the highest rating. The third question about Obama's rating repeated until I again gave the lowest rating. Then the call hung up, and when I dialed the number shown on caller ID, I got the message that the phone number was unallocated. I guess I am not getting that trip to the Bahamas.

I got a call from this # but was unable to answer. Looked up the number, tried to call back, no answer, got phone busy signal. Online says number belongs to Jason Miller. Called my phone company and reported call to them. Instituted call rejection as recommended
ESG Research. This time when they called I was home, so picked up and pressed 9 to be placed on their Do Not Call list. We'll see if that works.
In the mean time, here are the numbers I have so far that come in with this exact same recorded message:
Ossing New York is the home of Sing Sing prison.
You seem to be an educated consumer. I guess you don't know how credit cards work. Sounds like someone dosent have a job.you sound like a fixed income recipeint Why don't you stop taking unearned money from the government.
Received calls from this number a couple times over the last month. No message - found it on my call log. ID says "New York".
I completed the phony "debt crisis" survey, got switched to "Lola" with a cute Florida accent, and kept her on the phone long enough to get her employee "ID" (right) and find out about the cruise. She wanted to quickly get all my info, but I gave her only my (fake) name and (fake) phone number before I stopped her and asked what the total in "gratuities" and taxes for two people would be: about $125. Then we went back and forth before I stopped her and said, "Lola, I think we're done here. I'm not interested."
It's good to keep these scammers on the line as long as possible. It keeps them from making whatever quota their corporate masters have given them. NEVER give them accurate information, especially your address or your credit card number.
You need to understand more about telephony. What you suggest would be a disaster. There are a whole host of legitimate reasons for transmitting a cnum (caller ID) that does not correspond to the line you are calling on. You are also confused about the mechanics of things. Much of the time callers are not using a "phone company". Many of us, myself included, use VOIP (voice over Internet protocol). Both of my providers happen to be in the U.S., but I have phone numbers originating in several states and three other countries. Others have VOIP providers located overseas, but may have U.S. phone numbers.
There is no monolithic "phone company" to regulate anymore, and those of you who are still using traditional landline phone carriers are living in the past. If you pass a law such as you propose, it will simply move everyone to overseas carriers - even legitimate businesses. It is like squeezing a toothpaste tube in the middle.
Here are a few reasons why people need to spoof caller ID info (legitimately). Hotels/Motels - to protect your privacy and safety when you make outbound calls, Hospitals (same reason), Customer Service Centers - so you don't end up calling back to an unoccupied cubicle instead of calling the main customer service number, and also so that one person doesn't get 50 calls while everyone else is twiddling their thumbs, individuals who want to protect the privacy of their cell phone number, while still providing a valid phone number for people to return calls on, and the list goes on and on.
Please stop trying to solve life's aggravations with ill conceived, unworkable, and unenforceable laws. There is already a law which covers the use of spoofing to deceive, what we need is enforcement, not more laws for scofflaws to ignore.
Ossining? Isn't that where Sing Sing Prison is located? I saw this # on my caller ID but didn't answer it. Glad I didn't.
calls coming into home and cell phones from 202 499 1485; say they are doing a short survey on debt ceiling and one could win 2 cruise tickets with taxes and fees to be paid only. They give an option to pick up or press 9 to delete your number from their lists. In one instance I just hung up, in the other I pressed 9. I hope that one press doesn't cause more calls or problems! Perky, youngish female voice on call.
This is the 6th (I believe) unwanted call I have logged here at 800Notes today! How many of these horrible people are there out there? Leaves no message. Now on my blacklist!
I got this call number from "N.Y. Research", A survey, and I can win a "Free vacation to the Bahamas for 2" Yaa-- right, I don't thinkso. Have read about this scam on this site. They will need a "deposit" . Won't tell name of travel agency, DON'T SEND THEM ANY MONEY, OR GIVE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION !
i love caller ID, If I do not know the number, I don't answer. This 913 ac was interesting though, who the #@%$#@ would be calling me from Sing Sing. The id showed Ossining, NY. Get many calls from all over including India. Love caller Id
Call from ESG group from another #
I just got a call from the ESG group, also offering a FREE cruise if I do the survey. The cruise is a dead give-away it's a scam. But it was from a different phone number than you guys show - #312-465-1104.
Just got a second call from these d-bags. The first time I went through the "survey" about government debt, but it was so bogus (no demographic questions) I hung up before being transferred. I'm not interested in a "free cruise". This time I pressed 0, but was disconnected.
I reported this to the Area 1 Agency on Aging (an umbrella group for Northern California senior centers) because older folks are often the target of these scams. Seniors don't necessarily check the internet, but they do get the free newsletter with scam alerts.
Numerous calls from this number without leaving message. I am on donot call list and should not be receiving unwanted calls!!!
Just wanted to let everyone know that I work for carribean cruise lines and I dont want ANYONE to think this is a scam. If you decide to simply take the 2/2 Bahama cruise or upgrade to a bigger package you WILL get it. You can and will save 80% off retail if you upgrade to a bigger package!! Carribean cruise lines has been in business for 17 years and is not willing to risk a lawsuit over something so stupid. WE would not put our business at risk like that!!
Got a call from this number with a recorded message saying I'd won a "free" trip to the Bahamas....and "all you have to pay are taxes and port charges." Right.....this is one of the oldest scams in the book. You can buy your own tickets for much less than their "free" ones would cost. I hung up; they've called back twice this week with the same recorded b.s.
And you are probably the scamming caller - - stealing credit card numbers for your phoney port fees for you phoney free trip.
Phone call recording to participate in a survey on economy ? and as a reward, free tickets to Bahamas, just pay port fees?. Yeah, right - - I hung up.
Got the call today, same old scam but with a different number. Beware of these scams!
(914) 373-7134 is a Cell Phone
Likely Location: New York (Ossining, Briarcliff Manor)
Greater New York, Tri-State Region metro area, Westchester County
!! This is so annoying that I'm fixin' to bust a cerebral blood vessel!!!
Just kidding! I don't give a crap if dozens of dumbass scammers call me all day. I've got a modern voice messaging system (since 1988). The serious callers can leave a message, and I'll call them back, and the dumbasses can just get frustrated when I don't answer, for all I care.
I also have 'Caller ID.' I can tell just by looking at the display whether it's a call that I recognize or want to answer.
Y'all need to get yourselves a voice message system and 'Caller ID' service, and you won't ever again have to get all upset about that damn ringing noise to which you owe no obligations to even acknowledge.
And remember, y'all - if anyone who you do no know calls you on the phone asking for any of your information you can be assured that he is up to no good. Any offer of winnings for you, from them, is just the scam bait.
