I think this is a scam. I actually answered the call and they say that I won a free two nights. I couldn't fully understand where the lady was calling from. Some bank that is opening in Utah. She then asked me about my income. I didn't give much away. At the end of the call she hung up. Haha.
They just called me and I couldn't hear very well but it sounded like some kind of scam. The call went for about 20 seconds before I hung up.
supposed telemarketer, they had info that could have only been sold to them ie. name aprox age and address. had to have purchased online. The initial Caller ID came up salt lake city but after deeper investigation turned up to be Bhara, India
Called but did not leave message. :-(
They called me too. For a "free giveway of two nights I had won" I could barely understand the man....and when I asked where you have my number from....he said we have a few agents collecting numbers....weird cal....
Solicitation call that became rude and disrespectful when I stated we do not accept solitation calls at this business. She said she was aware she called a business number. Again, I stated we are not interested, then she hung up. Sounds like a scam call.
dont hang up, we are offering you at no cost a[list of items..trips,$2500 cash,etc..] to promote our company..Alll you have to do is...He couldnt speak english enough to be understood as to what he wanted me to do...told him didnt need his FREE items and hung up..they didnt respect the do not call list...i'm on it...
I received this call at 10am on 1/21/13 to my cell phone. He said was from the Federal Financial Group. I had to have him say the company's name over and over again. So, I told him to get the marbles out of his mouth and try the name again. Then, he proceeded to tell me how he got my cell number. When I told him to never call me again, he hung up. I'll expect another call this time tomorrow. :(

This number has been calling multiple times a day recently. Caller ID says "Federal Financial" Some person that sounded like "Abu" from the Simpsons, couldn't understand what they said. We just let the phone ring, they never leave a message.
Serious thanks to Mr Kelly above -- that was exceptionally useful and helpful. I called every number you provided -- every single one. Put in random extension numbers where required (I used "111" -- which got me to Whitney) and asked every one why they were calling me. The Manager's number, by the way, doesn't ring through -- ever -- just goes to voice mail. Again, to Mr. Kelley: EXCEPTIONALLY HELPFUL -- THANK YOU!
When I answered, the caller asked "is obama the "n****r" there?
Despite me saying I wasnt interested, he persisted. Told him, hey its your time to waste. I'm working while your talking and I guarantee to waste as much of your time as you want or can stand. "BUt...but.." "Yup, told you twice Im not interested, but I'm not the one who is going to hang up, you are" "Cant you asner three questions". "yes I could, but I have some questions for you. What business are you in?" Continued the roundy round until he gave up. He did wish me a good day before he hung up.
they call and hang up on you
calling from a noisy call center
How do we stop these calls??? I'm a business owner and I don't have time for scam calls.
Call but don't leave a message.
Called from 385-229-3020, identified as being from Federal Financial Group. Female caller with heavy unidentifiable accent. Claimed that our number had been randomly selected from a scratch ticket at their office this morning (that's a new one) and that as an employee at our number I was guaranteed to receive a scratch ticket worth at least $2500, or some other ridiculous list of prizes. Used common scammer tactic of asking "OK?" after every sentence... get you in the habit of agreeing to everything they say so you'll continue agreeing to their scam. I informed her I had a customer and couldn't neglect my job to speak with her at the moment. She rudely kept talking over me, insiting I stay on the line. I won't be answering any further calls from their number, but my boss will if they call when he's here. He loves keeping scammers busy on the line and confused as long as possible. Huge thanks to MrKelley for the contact info, I'll definitely be following up.
Called Federal Finance and asked to be removed from their list... however, they said their lists were purchased from LIST GIANT 1 800-383-1381 - you can call and have your number removed from the company that sold your number to begin with... CALL LIST GIANT - 1 800-383-1381 The other company where they purchase their lists is... Nationwide List Company, Inc. NOW - CAS Inc 866-461-4693... you can call and have your number removed from the company that sold your number to begin with... CALL CAS Inc - 866-461-4693 CALL - Direct Marketing Association to remove your number: Customer Service: 212.790.1500 https://www.dmachoice.org/
Called to inform me that I may qualify for a scratcher ... no sales pitch she said. Same comments as "M" listed on Jun 19 2013 down this thread. She was definitely Filipino - maybe the call center is based in the Philippines. Told them to not call me again.
