i had filled something out online that morning and a few hours later a lady called me and said i had filled something out online with one of "our partner websites" and stated that i was interested in going back to school... i asked her what her partner website was... didnt tell me then said 'but if youre not interested thank u very much for your time.' Someone selling my phone number. sketchy.
This is the second call today with a recorded message. They called from a different number earlier today.
What good does being on the do not call list when it doesn't seem to stop the calls? What good is "Do Not Call" if the calls keep coming in?
This number calls 2 x a night, its always a recording.
This number has been calling twice a day for at least a week. They call anytime during the day and at night.
they appear to be marketers...BUT they state that they are not selling anything.. they quickly hang up when I inquired about the company name.
Calls saying you've been chosen to receive a government grant BUT needs your acct # or credit/debit card information in order to make the deposit. Anyone who has ever received a real government grant knows that they dont need your acct #, name, address, zip, debit or credit card info because the REAL GOVERNMENT sends the grant money straight to the school you're wanting to attend. THIS IS A SCAM BEWARE!!!!!!
States "she" is an "honorable woman" and directs me to open a PayPal account so we can complete the transaction. (!) Claimed she wanted to buy a $1500 drum kit I had listed on Craigslist in AZ, but the number is from NC...yeah right. Also claimed to be in US Army at Ft. Butler (which is a Civil War Cemetary in Illinois). Freakin' loser.
He says he represents the N.C. Trooper Death Fund and is asking for a pledge for either $25.00, $35.00 or $45.00. Said they will be sending a pledge kit in about 3-5 days. is this some kind of scam or what?
I told them to leave me alone and if not I was contacting my local district attorney and then hung up....i called back the number got some guy who claimed to be a fed....reamed him a new one and he hung up on me...called back (twice) and received his voice mail...left two nasty messages and haven't heard from them since...
A man from this number tried to call me to rent out a home in Trumball, CT. I knew it was too good to be true when the price was so low and when "John Coleman" sounded Indian or foreign. HMMMM.....Gave me the run around that he transferred and is trying to rent out his home. He cannot give me the keys and the relative who lives close by just became terminally ill and is in the hospital. Then I googled his number and got here!!!!! SCAMMER
I received another call today 11/14/11 and pressed 2 to speak with someone and ask them to remove me from the list, to which I was hung up on.
