Same deal. This number calls, the id comes up as local number in my cell, but never calls the office. This time I answered but no one responded. I tried calling the number back and I get a message that the number "is not configured". Who knows, but I feel if it's that important they will leave a voice mail.

Scam caller wanting to sell you a cruise

Same here - have gotten calls once a day for the last few days. I'm assuming it's some college thing though, I'm in school no doubt they think I will be interested, but when you find your way there you'd be a while in the waiting line to speak to someone and they'd take the call.

These people have called at least twenty four times over the last month on home phone, now calling my cell phone and leaving messages and they are very rude. This is a scam and they are not good people.

They just called me as well. Said they were with the US Treasury and if I wanted to avoid being contacted by the authorities, I needed to call them back. I know I don't owe the IRS anything.

Have received several calls, usually just hangs up when I say hello. Just called. Asked for me (name) and I say "you've got the wrong number, how can I help you?" Long silence and then a hang up

Called our office this morning. Caller ID read "Benefits". We do not answer calls that say nothing but "Benefits". Call was automatically blocked.

They have been doing this for months. I just got a call from this number, too. It was my old one, who I have not shared in over a year and the name of the company changed about every time she phoned. I work hard for what I have and have made sure I have always paid my bills. I never answer 844 or 855, or 866 or 877, or 901, or 970 calls. However, my smart phone allows me to block an unlimited number of calls, if I need to. So I had to do that.I don't have time for this and I hate to say this but I have a life and it is not one of you want will. I know it is annoying because we have multiple jobs and I don't want to miss work or have to call all my families back. The fact of the matter is I need these calls but they don't know any better. If you want to know what to do just call the credit bureaus yourself and find out, you don't need these people calling your friends and demanding money.

I called the number back for a laugh, I got through and said stop calling my office because its not a good time since I am not interested please stop calling I will report the number that your calling from it will be on my record and will take further action with the authorities. The person didn't have my name correct so that was annoying to deal with and said I had a felony and I better pay. It's not my fault I think my cell phone is being hacked by a number that calls you and asks for personal information! I will have that information ready as well!

I recieved a calls from this number and several other numbers from around this state. I answered it today and it was a man who said his name was john and that i would be receiving a security system as i keep receiving calls. he told me he was from the federal government and would be sending the system to me free of charge. He called me in the morning and he called again in the afternoon. I told him the security system is on his computer and he hung up. The numbers are different each time but all i know is its a number from the state of Michigan

I've been getting a lot of hang up calls recently, one after another. No message left. Called back. Someone answered saying this is a marketing communications company that will give you an additional $100 in credit card savings. This is the only caller ID they said 'Toll Free' when they called.

I received the exact same call. Call showed up on caller ID as "Washington, DC". It said to call 3605390821 and ask that my cell phone be removed from their call list. After doing some research, I found out that when you google a cell phone number, it redirects you to a website where you can order some type of alarm or security system.

Called 2 times yesterday, 2 calls so far this morning. Robocall scam! Called it back, got a message saying if you want to be removed from the call list, press 1 and enter your phone number. Not sure the point of the number or their "removal" process.

Received a call from someone identifying themselves as a Microsoft Technician advising me to download a program in order to fix the computer. When I asked for their location, they said that they were located in Miami, Florida but would not give more information. I asked to speak with a manager and was hung up on after giving me a bogus name and the employee number. Then I received a call three times within an hour from a different number (same voice) telling me my computer had a problem and I was to call a "Supervisor" at the number provided ("1-866-220-4118",). I called the first number to find out what was going on and they refused to give me any information without confirming my identity. The second call I hung up on them, but the Supervisor didn't let either call go any further. I was so annoyed by them calling me on my unlisted home phone that I immediately called the number provided to find out who they were and why they were calling me. A recording stated I had reached "Global International" and if I wanted more information I was to state my full name and phone number to connect me to the appropriate representative. I quickly hung up and blocked the two numbers. The first call I received was from a man with a heavy indian accent

I asked him where he was located and he said Los Angeles. I said oh ok then I will call back and I ask for the name of this company he said yes your credit card company is charging $499 to your cc so you will be charged again in a month. I said okay then if this is my credit card I will just need to cancel it he

A recorded message says "There has been a claim put on my name/ social security # in connection with a claim and if I don't call then legal action will be pursued against me." I have no idea what the claim is regarding because they did not leave a name of the company, just "a number" of a number. I don't know who these people are, they call from a number and leave a number of a number. I know it's not for me either and I don't want to call back or answer.
