This malicious entity is calling numbers from all over the country.
They've shown up under the same name in more than one place and that name is PEERLESS NETWORK.
I just got a brand new number from Phone Power my new provider and received 2 phone calls today within the span of only a couple of hours.
The first call came from 413-363-9544 which shows up as Pacific Bell in San Francisco. It also diplayed the name PEERLESS NETWORK OF CALIFORNIA, LLC.
The second call came from the 813-444-5680 and also displayed "PEERLESS NETWORK OF FLORIDA, LLC.
Ordinarily I would just dismiss these calls and try to put myself on some kind of list, but evidently their is something far more sinister going on with regard to the new number I received from PhonePower, of which PhonePower themselves seems to have no explanation other than to advise customers to put these callers on their block list.
These two calls I received today are only a small percentage of the random, unknown numbers from various locations being routed to my new number from PhonePower.
If I were to make an educated guess, either the number I received did not get properly recycled before PhonePower gave it to me or the person whom had the number before me was just too careless about protecting their number and once out on the open telemarket...it essentially is bobbing back and forth in tele-shark-infested waters.
I really don't care what PhonePowers excuse is, they should be checking these numbers and making sure they are cleared from any spam or scam activity whether incoming or outgoing!
