Rude lady keeps calling over and over, when we ask to have our # taken off her list she hangs up on us. When we call right back the line does not go through.

This person calls saying that he is from the IRS. I ask to speak with someone else and a man says he will call back. This is a SCAM.

I just received a voice mail from this number. There was dead air in the background but when I did answer the person knew my name and said it was a courtesy call from the State Police Dept. It's just a recording so don't respond.

If you've ever lived in Atlanta, GA. You've probably heard this phrase. They want to give you a 'free' home security system. What a bunch of crap. I just got called, and if it gets annoying, just set your phone down and walk away. If they want real security from me, they'll find you and make sure it's not a company sponsored service.

This is definitely a scam... I received a call as well from the same number and it went to voicemail. He says his name is "Steve" and is looking for a relative and left the number of 646-908-4229 for the relative to call to arrange an appointment. SCAM.

It is for inmates at the Washington County Detention Center in California. If you received a call from someone you had to deal with at the facility, it is their number.

This is another number used by the American Veterans Foundation, with numbers in the Atlanta, GA area spoofed to look like the national numbers. They also use 888-382-6491 for the same scam. DO NOT CALL this number!! As you can see, this is also a scam. Don't be fooled. Do NOT give these people any of your personal information. If in doubt, call the organization on the web site. I've gotten calls for years claiming that I donated to these two organizations, but couldn't find who they were using to do the calling.

Got this call three months ago. Said they would continue to call me until I called their number. I did that with them today. They called 5 times within a 3 minute time frame. I finally called them back and gave them a set of hard numbers they had to memorize before they started talking to me. They started with an 8 then they said 3 digits in sequence. I kept making them repeat the numbers, which would indicate that I didn't know the digits. They asked my name 3 times, couldn't provide an address (they had my phone number, address and home number) and I refused to give my name and asked that my number be immediately put on the DNC list. Apparently the DNC list is $100 each year.

They have called multiple times and I hung up on them they called again and I answered and was told that the do not call list had been put in place for the last 10 days and that if I did not sign up with them this time I was going to have to be in court. When I asked what for was told they were going to serve me because of an unpaid loan but would only do so with my consent. I am getting sick and tired of this. <
