it beeps and then nothing is said and eventually hangs up on you.
My brother put my name in a fish bowl just outside the Pawn Stars shop when he was in Vegas during the Super Bowel. He claims it had an official History Channel logo on it and everything. I got this call today, first from a young lady but the call dropped. When I called back, a young man answered and he wasn't sure who had called me--a sign that they are using what's called an "auto-dialer," a computer program for mass calling people. This was the first sign that something was awry--how many "winners" are there that they need an auto-dialer? He then asked, "how far into the pitch did she get?" Pitch--another sign. When you're giving away prizes, you're not really "pitching anything." He starts talking about a free dining card that I'll get through email, and asks me a few questions about myself. I figure, OK they're wrapping a survey into this, not too damning in itself--but then he gets to the $199 security deposit. I tell him I need to call him back in like 20 minutes--I planned on calling the pawn shop directly to see if this was legit--and he claimed it was "a one-time deal" and that the computer would delete my entry. I pointed out that my call had dropped before, and when I called back he picked up immediately. He said that was "different." I finally convinced him to call me back in 20 minutes. When I called the pawn shop, he claimed it was a company across town that does tours. I asked him straight up, "so is it a scam?" His answer: "well they are a real company." Not a great answer for me. A real company doing real scams, is what came to my mind. I don't know if this guy will ever call back, but I'm not planning on picking up if he does.
So there is an end-of-month between 5p-6p ET pattern going on.
Recording about Government Bailout telling me this is my last notice to get lower interest rates on my credit card
Said that they were the IRS and filling a law suit against me
This company has been calling me for several weeks (at least).
They should be sued.
I NEVER ANSWER A CALL WHERE I DON'T RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER!
This call is a pre-recorded message, so I did not have an opportunity to speak with them.
This in now the 21st call from this number!!
I have been getting calls...no message left...annoying.
I have received my "2nd and final notice" for over 6 months. I spoke with a rep and asked to be removed from the calling list. She responded, "Yes, we can." and then quickly hung up. I have been registering complaints every time I receive calls from this bogus operation.
Unwanted Call - Did not answer - per others online this is a scam.
We have filed and complaint here before about this company yet they still continue to call and harass us daily. We have told them each time we are not interested to take us off the list they laugh, hang up on us and continue to call us daily. This is harassment! Please fine them.
calling my cell phone, 3 times.
these people keep calling with prerecorded messages. then they change there numbers and call again. using up all my cell minutes. please help!
There was no one on the other line to tell not to call again!
This happened to me twice in two days. said they were from rivera hotel in lv and i was a vip...never been to that hotel.
Started getting calls from 702-879-4528 a few weeks ago. Blocked this number which comes up as Indian Springs, NV. Now they have switched to a new number 702-879-4875 which also shows up as Indian Springs, NV. Blocked this one too just now and have enterd them into the "donotcall.gov" (national do not call registry) as well.
They called me 3 times in the past couple of days and then I finally answered and they told me they are trying to give me a VIP trip to Las Vegas. All I have to do is stay in one of their newly renovated hotels and then attend a 90 minute meeting and I will receive a $100 discovery card. What bs, I told them to get lost.
