Lots of people are randomly receiving calls from this number recently. If you google the number, results show the number associated with two people in Tampa, Fl: Nakia Rumph and Kathyrn Reeve. I seriously doubt that either of these people are calling people randomly. One poster attempted to return the call and got a recording that the number was no longer in service. This sounds suspiciously like another SCAMMER who is hi-jacking (spoofing) the phone numbers of innocent people (and also the numbers of small businesses according to the BBB warning about this scam). If you ever discover that your phone number as been spoofed, report it to the local authorities, your state attorney general office and the federal communications commission and request an investigation. Caller ID spoofing is prohibited according to the Federal Communications Commission, and the Truth in Caller ID Act of 2009. It is punishable by up to a 10,000.00 fine per violation. Why people are allowed to create apps that can change the phone number in the caller ID to any number they wish when it is unlawful to use the app is mind-boggling. As for the fine, it might as well be 1 million dollar fine per violation if no-one ever gets caught. It's hard to believe that people in this world have degenerated to this point. I feel terrible for the innocent people whose phone numbers are being violated for the agendas of unethical people.

Reported 25, Oct. 2014.

(208) 580-4895 Robo call recorded 24 October 2014 ("Diane, professionally steam clean your carpet...free hallway clean just for listening..." SCAM) Caller ID: "Marketing" "Diane" for professional carpet steam cleaning in two rooms for only $49 and the hallway thrown in for free "just for listening to this message." Not once does she mention the name of her carpet cleaning service but at least she's truthful about wanting to add me "...to her growing list of satisfied customers..." which probably translates to maxing out your credit card and more calls from every other telephone scammer who can push a dial pad. Of course Diane ignores the Federal Do Not Call list, which certainly tells you something about her business ethics, doesn't it? Here is a transcript of this "two rooms professional carpet steam cleaning for $49" offer: [they:] "Hi. This is Diane. I'm calling to see if you need your carpet professionally steam cleaned at a great price. Right now I'll steam clean two rooms of carpeting for just $49. Our cleaning process is fast drying and 100% safe for kids or animals, and we also clean upholstery, area rugs, drapery and tile floors. Because you've been kind enough to listen to my message, I'll clean the hallway for free. I just want a chance to add you to a growing list of satisfied customers who appreciate good service and a great price. Please press 1 to make an appointment."

These calls are coming from criminals who will try to trick you into putting malicious software on your computer. Then they seize all your confidential data and empty your bank accounts. They claim to be from "Windows" or "Microsoft." Do yourself and the world a favor and tell them off big time before you hang up. Maybe one of them will develop a conscience.

Got another call today from the same number telling me from hp and someone is trying to hack into my computer.

I received 19 phone calls from this number from 10:26 am to 7:04 pm. They called every 6 to 9 minutes apart . at 11:55 am we unplugged the phone till 3pm. Then had a CALL AT 3:01 PM. THEN THEY HAVE CONTINUED. It's a shame you have to disconnect your phone to have some peace and heaven forbid you need to try and use your phone or get a call. I was told they were calling about my loan application! If I was going to get a loan it sure wouldn't be from some guy who can't speak English, besides I think I would be aware of it. I'm tired of the phone harassment.

Call from this number. I don't know anyone in this area code so did not answer. This call was on my cell phone and I have made a practice of NOT answering any number that rings if I don't know who it is or might be. This scam has been around for a long time and you NEVER want to let them know that you answered their call. If you press 2 they will know you answered and they will KEEP your number and KEEP calling you. The very best thing to do is DO NOT ANSWER OR RESPOND TO THEM AT ALL. My home phone is now hooked up to fax only because of calls like this.
