I also got the roofing call...wish I had tho't to ask about DNC list!
Roofing company offering a free roofing inspection. I asked why they were calling a number on the DNC registry. Got quick apology and promise to update her records. Should compare call list with DNC registry before calling, not afterwards.
Someone called me from a 567 area code
I got a call from this number today and yesterday. both times it was silent and then they hung up.
Got a call from this number and said hello, waited a second, said hello, then one of those automated woman's voice said "goodbye". What the heck?
They called me asking for Marcia. When I said I don't know a Marcia and they have the wrong number, he said he was standing right behind me, and threatened that if I didn't connect him with Marcia he would find me.
same experience but only first phone call
I had a similar experience to others here. This number (567-890-9876) called my cell phone several times. Strong Indian accent. Didn't know my name. Said I had won a $8500 grant. Told them I had no interest. They continue to call my phone.
I've received several calls from this number although when I answered they hung up. Until today when I got someone who tried to convince me I had won a "government grant." The moment the word "scam" came out of my mouth, they hung up. I really wish there was a quick way to report this to the FCC or Attorney General. This is the same type of scam as the endless emails along the same lines.
Heavy accent. about "US Grant office" he hung up quickly and moved on.
Number says it's from Ohio... but notice how it's a VERY quirky palindrome. like counting 5 6 7 8 9 0, then count backwards 9 8 7 6
i know DAMN well that's not their real number.
damn VOIP switchboards and number spoofing...
Have now received 4 calls from the same #. As soon as I hear them ask to speak with (my name), I immediately have told them do not call me again. I am on the do not call list. The last time I used the F word after "do not... and he said the same word back to me and hung up. I am fed up.
I received a call from that number saying he was calling from the U S Grant office. I thought it was a solicitor so I said my number is on the Do Not Call list. He responded "F---k you. Who told you that?" I hung up.
I just got a call saying the exact same thing. I notified then they were being recorded the whole time and they hung up. Lol
didn't understand him when he called my cell. I sad immedtely take me off your call list, and that, this is a cell phone. He said" you do't want 8463.63 (something similar to that). I said that " this is fraud and don't call me" 3:00PM 10/08/14 FL
Received call on my cell phone from man claiming to be from Washington DC offering US Government grant of 8,500.00 cash to use for any purpose. Heavy India accent. Kept repeating 8,500.00 cash. I could have it in a Visa/Mastercard, deposited to my bank account or receive via Western Union. My choice. I gave him NO informantion. He said he wanted to verify my information and he read off my name and address! Said I had been selected to receive this grant because I had not filed bankruptcy in last 6 months! He then told me to get a paper and pen and proceeded to give me confirmation numbers, repeated them and told me to go to any western union store and receive my money. Yeah, like it's really there. Sure.
called my cell phone offering some type of grant and said that it wouldn't cost anything. Heavy accent and hard to understand. I said no thank you and he kept talking trying to convince me of something. Not sure what since he was difficult to understand. 5 min. later my husband's cell phone rang and I picked up. Same person and I hung up immediately. Will flag the number on both phones..........
