If you love Tom as much as I do, then check out this awesome remix I made of his annoying automated message: http://soundcloud.com/shawnshine/hello-this-is-tom
I am Dr. Maria Mayer of Alhambra, California. I get harassed at least 3 times a day by this unwanted caller Green Co (978) 570-2446, and whenever I call back that number to ask to be placed in the no-call list their number is ringing busy (phone off the hook?). I want to report them for harassment.

John, they don't "find" your unlisted number. They have an autodialer that calls every number from -0000 to -9999 in every area code and prefix.
If it's annoying enough, talk to your phone provider about "selective call rejection". This lets you enter numbers into a "reject list", if they call you, they either get a ring with no answer or a recorded message saying "this number is not accepting calls at this time". Your phone never rings, you never get bothered from this number. (Of course, they change numbers every few months, so, lather, rinse, and repeat.)
Alternately, some cell phones allow you to select a custom ring tone for entries in your contact list, put them in with "no ring" as the choice.
My system is, I simply don't answer the phone unless I recognize the calling line AND want to talk to that person. Otherwise it goes to voicemail. If it is important, they WILL leave a message. But these clowns never do. But they have called me EIGHT times in three days, so they are going on my reject list.
Contact your phone provider about "selective call rejection". This is a service that allows you to enter certain numbers into a "reject list"; if that number calls you, your phone does not ring, the caller gets a "this number is not accepting calls at this time" message.
Alternately, some cell phones allow you to select custom ringtones for numbers in your contact list, enter this number with a "no ring" choice. If they call, they get your voicemail but you never get disturbed.
This number has been calling me about once a day for two weeks, today called three times at 1pm, 2:30, and 4pm. Caller ID shows "GRNSEC". Like most telemarketers, they never leave a message.
I'm also getting pestered by 253-246-8553, perhaps related.
Obviously the "do not call" lists don't work. I get several calls a day!
Behind the Door
Get calls from this # all the time. Sometimes 2 or 3 x's a DAY. Sometimes 2 or 3 x's a week. Can it stop?? If so, HOW do you stop them. They call on my cell phone and you cannot call the # back!!
This number appears on my unlisted cell phone several times a day. I don't answer because I don't recognize the number and they never leave a message. It it unsolicited and would like it to stop since it is a waste of my cell phone minutes for me to answer.
Got through to me on my unlisted cell while I was at work, and persisted in offering me a deep discount on a wireless home security system if I let them put a sign in my yard. I explained he's calling my cell and it's not OK to do that, I'm at work, etc., and he persisted with "just let me ask you one or two more quick things," then when I told him I'm a condo renter, he hung up on me.
Received a call from this number and when I answered, there was no response on the line. I have no idea how the caller found my unlisted cell phone number and I will contact the State's Attorney if they call me again.
This is another security system sales call. They are relentless.
If you are getting solicitation calls on your cell phone and it's a "Smartphone" you can probably download an app to block certain phone numbers. For example, I have an android phone. I added this number to my "Blocked List" using "TouchPal Dialer" which includes options for blocking certain numbers. I selected the option to "Pick up and hang up". You can also opt to send the call directly to voice mail. There are also apps solely dedicated to blocking unwanted calls to your cell phone.
Hope this helps.
This call came in from Massachusetts and it was a telemarketer trying to sell pest control. Why would a phone call from the east coast be calling the west coast about pest control?
TOM IS A HOMO-ROBO DIALER WANTING NEW MEMBERS
978-570-2446 keeps calling my cell phone. Please stop this Tom person from calling me. How did he even get my phone number?
The 334 number is from google voice, so any free calls that you make from there, a random number shows up every time, great way to stay anonymous.
This number has been calling me daily and I would appreciate no more unwanted calls.
Yesterday I emailed BayRing Communications, the provider for these numbers. I actually got a pretty quick response, and hope that this information will help the rest of you. I do find it ironic that this asshat company (who is breaking the law) is protected by privacy laws, yet my privacy can be violated, but whatever. This was the following email I got:
We have received your email. You are correct in your statement that we are simply the service/dial tone provider for the majority of these numbers. We are a telephone and internet service provider, just like AT&T and Comcast, and as their underlying service carrier, our company name comes up online when the numbers are researched. Unfortunately, due to national privacy laws, I am not allowed to release the name of the company that is using these numbers and placing these calls, as much as I wish I could!
We provide dial tone to 603-214-3679, 603-214-9021, 603-214-3668, 508-475-1968, 978-570-2447, and 978-570-2446.
We do not provide service to the other three numbers. These appear to be West coast numbers so I tried to research them online and it looks like their underlying carriers are Pacific Telecom Communications Group and Western Wireless Corporation.
What I can offer in regards to the numbers that we service that are constantly calling you is the number to the Compliance Department that has been set up to specifically help people remove their numbers from this company?s calling lists. When calling this number, you will reach a live person who will work with you to make these calls stop- it will not result in more calls! That number is 855-226-2444. Also, if you don?t mind providing the number that they are calling, I will send a message on your behalf to further ensure that the calls stop. I can also include your original message within mine so they know how serious this issue is.
I hope this helps! Please let me know if you would like to provide your number, the number they are calling, so I can send the message.
called my cell......seldom do I even turn it on.........never even knew they called...............until I saw a number being rejected....same place????......robo....blind calls????.....checking to see if you are home by signals????.......grrrrrrrrrrrr...............another con....scam.....vagabond????....traveling gypsy????????....coinky-dink???....yessir they are all out there now.......and some new ones too.......identity thieves..opportunists.....borrowers????....problem they don't or seldom return things, hoping you never notice the few items missing!!!!...some valuable, some resellable, some parts for their broken stuff!!!........stay alert people........distractions can be innocent or planned by a few..........
They have been calling me on and off for nearly 2 months now. Tried listening to the message, but it is a recording that almost sounds real, but isn't and keeps asking to "verify that I am the homeowner". Its stupid too, since I don't even own the home! which if you say no, it then asks who the homeowner is.
The first time they called, it was the same gimmick, but claimed it was a satellite company with a box, etc. Since they started a month ago I have gotten 9 unknown numbers that follow their same call pattern (call morning, call mid-day, call at night). Some I answer and it says nothing, twice it has been the security gimmick but from two different numbers. Most times I ignore it, however the longer I ignore one number the number will suddenly changed by one digit so even though I have it saved in my cell as spam with a different ringtone, once they change the number it then goes through. Its harassment, plain and simple. Wakes me up in the morning, wakes me up at night, disturbs me throughout the day. I filed a complain with the Do Not Call Registry (which you can do if you get a message from a recording, even if you are not currently on the list). The next step if it continues is contact my provider, but although they may block one number they can't block it if they change the number again. *sigh* Last step? Change my phone number I suppose.
I keep receiving calls from this number at least 2 times a day,, it is very annoying. I wish they stop calling
I receive calls from this number to my cell and home phone. Several times a day . It's annoying
And one more that I like is to say that "Now is not a good time for the call." To which virtually any telemarketer will respond with "Oh, what would be a good time to call you back." To which I respond without hesitation. "May 17th, 2016 after 10:00 am" (Note that this is not a typo, it is what I say to the caller.)
Another good one is to respond as if you're going to buy, extend the call as long as possible and then hang up.
Thanks tons for this info. I just blocked their call. I"m on the do not call list, filed a complaint, but still was getting calls. This will help for sure.
I don't know if this works yet as I just heard about it but I was told that when you get these absurd call that if you just keep hitting the star key, it sounds to the caller like a fax line. Hope this helps all of us.
This phone number and 603-214-3653 have called me EVERY 30 minutes today and they both seem to be linked to home security........i am also on the do not call list.
Today, I have received 5 calls from this number "GRNSEC", within 25 minutes. I never answer them, but they keep trying. I think this borders on harassment. We are on the DNC list, but this doesn't stop them.
Maybe I need to get an air horn to use as an answering machine.
I'VE RECEIVED TWO CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER. I JUST LET IS WRING AS I DID NOT RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER. I'M ON THE NO CALL LIST WHATS UP WITH THIS.
