I don't know
I had the same experience. I got a text saying Hello Ellen .... They knew my last name. Then they asked if this was Ellen ..... I ignored because last week I had a similar text from a different number. I believe it is a scam!
Sent me two text messages asking me if I was somebody (gave a first and last name.) Did not give me their name. Appears to be from a landline in Hayward, CA. Texts came about a week after a person with a VoIP phone from Cold Spring Harbor, NY, left me a similar text.
They wanted to buy from an online ad. They requested to send me a cashiers check for an excess amount and me to refund the difference. that is fraudulent.
This number keeps texting me saying "Hey dog", "Waz up?", "Hey waz up?"
I receive unwanted calls from this number.
I just got called from this Number. I was told by a woman (heavy accent) that I had Won 5000.00 in Walmart gift cards. That she needed my credit card number to process the 99.00 fee to activate them.
Thank You Everyone that has posted, She was not happy when I told her that I was interested, and wanted to know why I was not excited. told her that she could take her scam elsewhere!!
I hope this will help others to avoid a miserable mistake.
I received a phone call today from this number claiming they were part of a Wal-Mart survey company giving out 500 dollar gift cards. But I had to give them a 2.95 shipping fee via my credit card. I was suckered into this but I did not suffer any charges. When I got off the phone with this company I researched the phone number and found other people claiming the same thing but from other numbers.
The guys name was John (heavy accent from India) DO NOT TRUST THEM, Scam!
He gave me another number to contact them back at 800-450-9016 (NOT in Service)
how do you figure out the company doing it? I've tried to return the calls and get the busy tone. Whatever company it is it's very unprofessional and very annoying.
I got a call from 856-229-9060. I called my carrier and he said to block the number. I did and now they called me from this # and hung up. I guess I made him made.
They just call then say nothing how can we stop them that's horrible
I know no one with this number. Callbacks get a busy signal. Very annoying. Don't intend to call back as I can't waste cellphone minutes on this nonsense. Probably scammers or spammers.
Called twice today on my mobile phone. Left no message. I don't pick up any call unless I know who's calling or has left a meaningful message. So, you scammers - Hard luck!!
Just got one while at work. Trouble for having phone on at work as a result. Nobody Answered.
yep, same. twice this week.
Receive several calls a day, no one says anything.
4 or 5 calls a day.no one there. I call back and it dosn't even ring. Pissing me off !! Trying to work here DICKSMOKER !
no answer always busy
They are probably companies that sell telemarketing phone lists and are using predictive dialers to weed through and compile numbers that get answers on 2-3 rings... I know predictive dialers are illegal in a lot of areas but they probably use them anyways for compiling these lists as they can hit and run without any blowback. I got one from this number on my cell phone
