I received a call from this number at work, did not answer it and no message was left.  One minute later I received a call form another unwanted caller that has previously been reported at this site (765 807-6500) by me and others.  I think that at least some of these unwanted calls are from the same source although the phone numbers shown on caller ID are different.

It doesn't matter what cutesy little gimmick you've come up with to hide from telemarketers. It doesn't matter too much, whether or not you've been called -- for the purposes of this Web site.What's important is to know who the jerks are (And, since you don't have a clue, we're all in the same boat, right now.) and take them to court. Only if we spend time finding out who they are, tracking down their actual identity, and then filing lawsuits (Small Claims Court works, and usually costs less than $100.) will we actually make a difference and get the jerks to leave us alone.For most of today's illegal telemarketers, we've got to actually talk to them. Helps to have a credit card with a very low limit (You can call the company and REQUEST a low limit.) so that you can give them an actual credit card number, with very limited liability. If your limit is $100, and they're trying to sell you something for a much higher price, it's declined. Then, get the information from the credit card company: "Who tried to run a charge at such and such a time yesterday?" Now, you have a positive paper trail to the culprits.One call -- especially a machine message like this -- is worth a minimum of $500 PLUS YOUR COSTS. If you can convince the judge they were really bad (egregious) in some way, you might get $1,500 per call.At least, we know this was some kind of alarm company. Its machine message started playing before my outgoing message finished. (I deliberately put a pause after my "hello" in my answering machine's message. This tricks any equipment "listening" for an answering machine into thinking there is a person on the line.)Part of their message was garbled. I don't know if it was the phone line, if it was my equipment, or if their machine messed up. Here's the only understandable part I got:" . . . one now to claim this free security system. Again, press one now. Or press three to decline this offer."If I get a chance, I will press one next time, to find out who this really is. In the meantime, I may file a suit so that I can get a subpoena of telephone company records -- and find out EXACTLY what the story on:517-931-2640    Arben Phinsreally is. Has the number been "spoofed," for example, is a question to ask.If we all spend a few moments on each of these irritating phone calls, and then post USEFUL information on the identities of the jerks, we can:1) Make a lot of money. (One guy has collected more than $100,000 from telemarketers, and I generally collect about $1,000 per call.)2) Help put a stop to this annoying, time wasting business (or scam) practice.

Hey I just got a call from them today. I actually talked to them. They said they were calling doing polling and health studies for Massachusetts University, always up to helping students and researchers gather information because on a few occasions when I was in school I had to do the same thing.They asked really vague questions about people's health and did not ask me any questions about polling. I am generally happy to help with research and polling, but guess what? The questions they asked were about my me or anyone in my household with health, mental, vision, or physical disabilities, but really vague. Like has you or anyone in your household have trouble walking up the stairs? What? Um...? Situational people. I asked are you asking about long term disability or inability to perform temporarily, historically.  For example, say I pulled my hamstrings because I over stretched, in that event, yeah at current I have trouble going up the stairs.  How will I be able to give you a straight answer if you cannot ask me a straight question. I also, said I have no disabilities myself, but asking me about other people in my households disabilities or impairments cannot give you accurate representation because I am not them.Anyways, I called the number back after a few minutes past, to see what it was all about. The person greeting the call did legitimately say they are from a national polling. I went on to ask them questions like if it were a poll about voting and accessibility of the population to the voting polls, why was I not asked anything about polling/voting. She answered my questions and was not rude. I told her that the questions were very vague and might not get them good results.Anyhow, I generally answer my calls, but because of them, I won't answer again. Don't answer if you don't need to. I also looked up the number it says it belongs to US LEC Corp. looked that up, and it had nothing to do with research polling. So nothing is adding up. Well, there's lots they can improve upon in their questionnaire to get better results.

I have an Ooma so I blocked this number, and many others like it. They can never call me again.NCO is a company that ttries to scam you out of $$ by bullying you. First this number or any of 10 area codes nationwide will call you and tell you you owe them anywhere from $1200 to $5000 depending on what they think they can get away with.  After they call and hang up 4 or 5 times, someone will call and tell you that because you refused their calls, they have a legal right to demand payment.  They will keep calling at any hour to try to be a nuisance and you will pay just to get them off your back. They operate semi-legally in states with the weakest credit laws. They move operations around so if one number gets blocked, they call back in 2-3 months with a new number you have not blocked yet. The safest thing to do is to tell them that you KNOW they are scam artists and report their number to your local police... they should have a cyber crime unit that handles phone fraud as well. NEVER visit their website as it is full of worms, trojan horses and bots of all kinds.

It is a company that makes the fraud calls for B of A cards.  I updated my address yesterday so they were calling to verify that no one had stolen my cards or tried to change my address and intercept the new card. They didn't ask for any personal information other than the phone number they called to reach me.  They asked for an approximate balance on one bill and that was it.  NO personal info.  it's plain old card services, where you write your check to every month when paying your bill.

I looked here for the same reasons after getting calls with no messages from this number.  In my case there was no problem with the account, but because of this thread I called them to ask.   It turned out BOA had called me from that number to question a charge that they suspected could be fraudulent, but it wasn't.  So yes this is a legitimate number.  Even so, in order to trust your responses they do ask you some security questions that aren't good to answer to any random caller, it's always better if you call them on a published number, then you know who's on the other end.

Got three calls today, third call they left a message. I didn't trust it, so I called the 800 number on the back of my Bank of America Visa, and they did confirm that 302-731-1166 is the BofA fraud department. They were calling because two unusual charges were pending on my account, and it turns out $500 of fraudulent charges had been placed on my card. They had to cancel the card and send a new one. I will say that the 302 area code message and phone system seems shady; I didn't trust it, but if you get a call, you should definitely contact BofA through the 800 number on your card to make sure your account is okay.

This thread is hysterical. Bottom line is this is a real number. I don't condone ever giving personal info to a person that called you claiming to be a bank, but doing so if the person is calling from this number likely won't be an issue. I missed a call from this number and googled it immediately. I decided to check my online account since so many said it was the fraud dept. Turns out my account was locked due to unusual activity. Coincidence? I guess it's possible but it's much more likely this is a legit BOA call. My guess is that those who are being told this is a scam by BOA are speaking to customer service reps who are uninformed and just assuming that since they don't recognize the number it must not be legit. Still, it's probably best to tell the caller you will call back. It will take you more time but better safe than sorry. These people insisting that this is a scam are doing more harm than good because if you get a call from this number, you likely have a problem with your credit card and need to take action. Don't ignore because you think this is a scam.

I did not answer the 302-731-1166 call and they did not leave any message. I called the number on the back of my card and BofA verified that they did indeed try to reach me. There was a $1 pending charge from google which BofA said is often an attempt by someone to see if the card number is valid before they start running up charges. Since I never charge using google, my card number has been compromised and I will be getting a new one.

***  PLEASE READ THIS MESSAGE BEFORE YOU CALL BACK  ****** DO NOT GIVE ANYONE CALLING YOUR INFORMATION ***This is absolutely a classic phishing scam. All the signs are there and I have received confirmation from Bank of America that it is indeed one.What to look for: the callers left a voicemail on my phone. The call contained most of the red flags you'd expect in a scam message:1. An "ALERT" noise which sounds a bit like the Fox news broadcast or CNN broadcast alerts to create urgency.2. A reference to a card ending in 4299. None of my cards end in that code, but I'm sure many people getting this message would not check first.  3. A prerecorded message which, if you listen to carefully, seems choppy as if someone spliced it together from an official call.4. A request to call back *immediately* to a number not published on the bank's website. You'd think the bank would publish the number for verification purposes.5. A warning of a hold if the call isn't returned further creating urgency. Instructions are then given to call 866-559-0025 and enter in a pin number (to make it seem legit).6. The message then stresses to disregard any messages from Bank of America online or any text alerts received on your mobile phone. Which makes sense since the last thing the scammers want is for you to actually call the bank.7. I call the number which identifies itself as "card services". Umm hmm. Many banks do outsource service functions as posters have stated above, but due to the nature of financial information, the outsource company usually operates separate lines and identifies the financial institution they represent on a particular inbound or outbound call.8. . The first thing I hear is instructions to enter in a billing zip code without so much as an identification. I enter in a bogus code in another state and sail onto the next step. That was the clincher.I promptly hang up and call the Bank of America number on my card. The representative I get runs a quick sweep of my account and indicates no fraud alert has been issued.It's a fairly well done fake, and I feel bad for the people who posted "it's legit!" on this post, because they likely gave a scammer their card info, pin and personal info.  Hopefully this message will save you time, money and angst.

Got the call this morning.  They didn't leave the message.  Everyone says it's legit from BoA, so I simply called their customer service number on the back of the card.  Two charges were made (yesterday and today), and they thought they were funny.  Both were legit charges.The same thing happened with a different account at a different bank.  I had two online purchases they thought were suspicious, so they stopped them until they contacted me.  Again, both of those were legit, so they released the funds.I'm guessing that the person on the other end who couldn't speak English is probably working for BoA because of outsourcing.  That, or they mysteriously only staff their call centers with people of Indian or Pakistani origin.  But odd how they would steal my card number, run up plenty of suspicious charges (which were all legitimate), and then call me to get my credit card number which they already stole.  Why call to get a number that was already stolen in the first place?As for how funny it was that the call came on MLK day, when banks are closed that day - I'm pretty sure just about every bank is closed on Sunday, yet when I called the customer service number, I spoke to a person.  Could it be that, in this Internet age, banks hire people to man customer service numbers and other phones on - gasp - a Sunday or a holiday?Then again, what do I know?  Since I don't agree with Mila 100%, I must be a scam artist who is getting all sorts of kickbacks.  Bottom line, if you don't want to give the info to the number that called, then don't.  But at least contact the customer service number on the back of the card - odds are that something could potentially be wrong with the account.

Dude, seriously, you are 100% wrong. The number is the automated fraud detection system calling to let her know about the fraud.If you look at the back of your credit card you'll see that there isa  number starting with 302-73X-XXXXBofA is a HUGE company with 10s of thousands of phone numbers.  When a large company has that many numbers the phone company usually gives them those numbers in blocks.  In this case they appear to have all the 73X prefix phone numbers in the 302 area code.Their automated system uses specific numbers for outbound calling only.  Their inbound phone numbers are different because they are directed to a different system.As this woman said,her account was shut down completely when she tried to view it online.  That is because their automated fraud system caught some unusual activity and shut the card down, at the same time it attempted to contact the customer in order to have the customer identify charges as correct or fraudulent.

This is a legitimate number.  I got a call from this number this morning but I did not answer the phone.  After checking on the web, I called the number.  A guy answered the phone and requested me to give him my credit card number.  He said there is a suspected fraudulent activity.  I told him I have a few cards and I need to know which.  He won't released any information.  He asked me which card I had recently used and that payment failed.  I did use my BOA card to pay my ACCA membership in sterling pound just 10 minutes ago and it failed to go through.  Being cautious, I told him I will call my bank directly.  I called BOA # at the back of my card and true enough my card was temporarily blocked due to this payment made.  After clarifying that it was indeed a payment made by me, they released the block on my card.  I think they are doing a good job in preventing fraudulent activities.  I asked BOA regarding the first phone call and they said it was legitimate.

You are completely wrong, this number is used by their automatic fraud protection system. It’s a computer calling you to inform you about possible fraud activity. You will also receive at least one e-mail when receiving calls from this number. The reason this number is not listed and is not the same as the 1800 # on the back of the card is they don’t want you calling it back because it is just for the automated system. Almost every large company uses this process so stop telling people this is a FRAUD when it’s not. Please research your facts before giving advice that is totally wrong.

I am almost positive that this is a legit number. I got a call from this number that I missed on my cell phone. I also received an email claiming to be from BofA saying that there was potential fraudulent activity on my account, with an 800 number to call or a link to a fraud alert website. Being cautious, but not paranoid, I just went to my on-line account via the usual method, to find that it was blocked due to potential fraudulent charges, so I had to clear it. First I had to enter my account #, then there were a bunch of multiple choice questions that no one else would know the answers to, then they asked for the last 4 digits of my SSN, and finally they showed me all of my charges for the last three days and asked if they were all legit. They were, though some did seem a little odd, so I said "yes" and then the message said that my card was cleared. The odds of my getting a scam call, especially on my cell phone which has never happened before, and my account actually being blocked like that show that the call I received was from BofA.

I'm reposting this up here because these scam "artists" hired a bunch of monkeys (with terrible grammar and spelling skills if I may add...) to go on the front page and push back most of the comments indicating that this is a scam. Thus filling the front page with a bunch of BS about how it is a legitimate number....Get a call from these a-holes twice this morning. Didn't pick up because I never answer calls I don't recognize (especially if they don't leave a voicemail the first time) and I especially never answer calls from out of state I don't recognize because it's always a scam.Anyways, I looked up the number on here and confirmed my suspicions that it was a scam call. Interestingly enough, when I checked my BoA account, it had been closed because of suspicious fraudulent charges. The number for the fraudulent number ON THE ACTUAL BoA website does not match the number that called me. My guess is these jerk offs steal your card and make a lot of suspicious purchases making BoA instantly close your account because of their security settings. So just in case you are suspicious enough to check your account after they called you, you will see your account is closed and think the call is actually from Bank of America.SPOILER ALERT: IT NEVER IS. It never will be. A company will NEVER ever contact you for your personal information. DO NOT GIVE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO AN INCOMING CALL/EMAIL EVER.I also love how they called me on f***ing Martin Luther King Jr. day so all the banks are closed. It's also another red flag.Don't listen to the other posts on this site claiming the number is legit. I have nothing to gain but they have everything to lose if you listen to the people claiming it's a scam. Only ever give out information after directly calling the company's line listed on your card.Your account may most likely be closed because these scammers know what they are doing. But please, do NOT think that because your account is closed when you received the call that it is legitimately BoA. Better safe than sorry. Hell, go to BoA directly. It's not just money scam artists will take they can destroy your credit score and impersonate you to the point where your name will forever be tarnished.

Today I've got a call from (302)731-1166. Since this # is not familar to me, so I checked it online.And saw your post there saying this # is from Bank of America Credit Card Fraudulent Service". I called the # and it was busy. Then I called the 800# Customer Service showing on the back of my credit card. As always, I was asked to enter my last four digits of my account number, which I did. Then I was asked to enter my social security number, which was very unsual and has never been done before, But I also did. Then the voice in the phone said that please enter "1" at any time if I couldn't recognize or were not familiar with the charges when they read all the charges on my credit account. I immdiatelly realized that it was not right right after the first charge was read to me. Then I entered "1", and was connected right away to the real person at the Customer Service. After they verified with me for my residential address and email address, and I told them the last purchase I used my credit card to make the payment. After a short while, I was told that they would close my current account and would issue new card to me within days. Although I am upset and frustrated about this instance, I  appreciate so much for the great job that Bank of America has done. I also want to say "go to the hell" to those nasty thieves.

i got two phone calls this am and i answered the second one. the number shown on my caller id is 3027311166. i asked the person who she called from. she said "we answered the call for american express, visa and master." i told her i don't have american express. she said "call your credit card company." i told her i had several cards, and asked her which one. the answer remained the same: call your credit card number.she gave me a "b***s*** answer." i doubt if this is from bank of america. i reported this to bank of america and expect them to answer me. but meanwhile, DO NOT GIVE OUT YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER, not even telling her what cards you have.

Bank of America called from 302-731-1166 and left a message informing me that there were possible fradulent charges to my card.  As I always do in such cases, I do not call the number that the message instructed me to call.  Instead, I called the Customer Service number on the back of the credit card.  They verified that the message was legitimate, and we determined that there were several fradulent charges to the card.  The card was deactivated, and new ones issued.

I received a call from this number early this morning. Being of suspicious character, I did not make a selection to push #1 or #2 and just listened. Within 5 seconds, the caller hung up. I called BoA from a number found on their web site and found out that there was a suspicious charge on my account (which turned out to be legimite) that actuelly happened five minutes before the call. My wife had made an online purchase at that time. From what I can tell, this number was generated by the BoA fraud devision.

Luckily I checked online found this site and found out it is a legit number from "Bank of America" fraud prevention department. I checked my account right away and found out I became a fraud victim. I followed the steps online and also called to talk to their representive and cleared things right up. The thief made a lot purchases just yesterday and BOA informed me this morning.

This is a real Bank Of America phone number.  In fact, if you look at the back of your credit card you'll see a phone number that has the same (302) 73X-XXX area code and prefix.  Bank of America is a HUGE company and probably has tens of thousands of assigned telephone numbers.  As a result they probably have the entire range of the 302 area code's 730 through 739 prefixes.  The phone number you received a call from is most likely one of their fraud detection robo callers.  If you aren't comfortable giving out your private information (which is entirely understandble) to an inbound caller you should just tell them "I'll call you guys back using the number on the back of the credit card."  It's that simple.

This is in fact B of A calling. I was called by the number and picked up about fraudulent charge on my BofA account. After going through the automated prompts to verify a charge, a computer generated voice stated a company I was not familiar with in which I was then connected to the female representative that spoke fluent English.  After verifying 3 most recent purchases, the last being of $1 charged today from Mexico which I did not make, the other 2 being charges I verified on my online Bof A access as ones I did incur or valid charges, they cancelled my card and informed me I will receive a new card.  To be safe, I called the number on the back of my credit card 5 minutes after hanging up with the representative that informed me my card would be cancelled and after following the prompts the automated system stating my account had been closed and thank you for calling.  This is a legitimate call and after reading this thread is what prompted me to call the credit card 800 number on the back of the card. I'm confident I was not victim of a fishing scam from this number but I understand in today's society why everyone needs to be hypervigilent against theives posing as legitimate business

You are both very wrong and clearly have some try of grudge against BoA or are an unhappy customer. This number is used by their automatic fraud protection system. It’s a computer calling you to inform you about possible fraud activity. You will also receive at least one e-mail when receiving calls from this number. The reason this number is not listed and is not the same as the 1800 # on the back of the card is they don’t want you calling it back because it is just for the automated system. Almost every large company uses this process so stop telling people this is a FRAUD when it’s not. This site is here to inform people about the identity of a number not to spew your views or issues with said company.

The government/DNC won’t help you; as a matter of fact they are the ones that are giving your number out.  What was supposed to help you has turned into a weapon against you.  Each month a new list of DNC numbers are released by your ever faithful government to “help” stop telemarketing phone calls but at the same time they make it available to anybody that wants a current list of WORKING NUMBERS!  Guess what by listing your number on the DNC you have just given it to every scam artist out there that has enough balls to register with the DNC.  Your government is too stupid, lazy or calloused to look right under their nose.  Remove your number from the DNC and in two months your scam callers will stop calling (though it may increase local calls).  If you don’t want to remove your number I suggest getting a call blocking device of some type.  I currently have 79 area codes blocked and at least 13 local numbers blocked and I still get repeated calls.  I love getting repeat calls because when my call blocking devices kick in I know it’s costing these morons money because the devices pick up and then hang up and I never hear the phone ring.   Get the last laugh on these jack***es by blocking them not just by complaining.  Complaining won’t stop the calls, -- Nothing Will – but you can silence your phone if you want to. The devices/programs I use are DIGITONE CALL BLOCKER 10 and PHONE TRAY. I may get the occasional stray call that gets through, BUT ONLY ONCE!!!!

When I get these I hit the "#" sign about 6 - 8 times quickly.  Normally it confuses the automated system and it logs the call as an error and most often removes the number from their call list.  If there is a "person" I normally just say "hold on a second" and put the phone down.  It is hilarious to listen to them shouting "hello, hello, hello" before they finally hang up.

Work on your answer voice for something like this and maybe they will think they got their call # list messed up and take you off of it, It wasn't this particular #, it was on the ID tonight when I came back from the store, just might help, good luck.

So, then it was 4:24 a.m. Central Time and earlier in the west. That's harrassment! Calls at that time are frightening; they're usually a emergecy, e.g., someone has died, an accident or  some other medical emergency.

OK: useful information time:  When these ($%&^) call, hang up then pick up the phone and dial *57.  This causes the call to be traced by the telephone company even if the caller was spoofing their caller ID. (it costs $4 on your phone bill unless *57 service is already part of your telephone service package) Then, once you have traced the same number three times, file a complaint with the local police department. The police department can (and is supposed to ) retrieve the tracing information from the telephone company.

. . . People who use this as an excuse to whine and vent, rather than as a powerful took to pool information with which to fight back.If all you "do" about the problem is express an opinion -- here -- that the law needs to be changed, you waste your time and ours. If you write to your elected state and federal representatives, then you're closer to being of some use.Think about it:     Right now, two issues on the political stage are Health Care and Torture. Telemarketing, for many, is torture. If you read these posts, and ads on this site which say things like "Harassed by Phone Calls?" you already know this. So, those who are opposed to torture of our enemies should be quite willing to put a stop to this torture.     There is an ever-growing body of evidence that stress causes a large percentage of health issues. Some doctors give estimates as high as (or higher than) 75% of patient visits being caused by stress. So, anyone who has the slightest interest in any kind of health care availability increase or who advocates any -- no matter how narrow -- particular kind of health care program should be eager to reduce stress among the citizenry.     Which means putting far more restrictions on telemarketing. Whether they are opposed to torture or in favor of health care, the conclusion is the same. And, if they claim telemarketing is not torture, check this: Do they give out their personal home telephone numbers? Are those numbers listed in the phone book? If not, then they are hypocrites, and clearly recognize the stressful -- torturing -- nature of telemarketing.------------------Don't whine. Do something. Post useful contact information about whoever calls you. Don't brag about the stupid act of not answering the phone to find out who is doing the harassment. Grow a pair, pick up the phone, ask some questions. Even play along, if that's what it takes. Find out who is making the calls, then post real information of the useful kind here.And, think about filing lawsuits yourself. If the FCC or FTC is able to collect ten billion trillion dollars from a telemarketer for violating the rules, you won't get a single cent. If you sue them, you can get as much as $20,000 per call.While that is an unlikely and difficult goal to reach (IT HAS BEEN DONE.), it's highly likely and not too difficult to collect between $500 and %1,500 per VIOLATION. And, a single call can potentially comprise multiple violations.

Because of limitations in the jurisdiction of the FTC and FCC, calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities, and telephone surveyors would still be permitted, as would calls from companies with which you have an existing business relationship, or those to whom you’ve provided express agreement in writing to receive their calls. However, if you ask a company with which you have an existing business relationship to place your number on its own do-not-call list, it must honor your request.  You should keep a record of the date you make the request."   (www.donotcall.gov).

Maybe this post explains why there are so many illegal telemarketing calls. Someone starts out as an interviewer, comes to imagine they know all the rules, gets promoted . . . and then applies a lot of rules or implements a lot of waivers that don't exist.NOBODY is entitled to call after 9 p.m.ALL COMPANIES OF ANY FORM, CALLING FOR ANY REASON, are required to stop calling when notified of the recipient's request to stop. Some pretend that, unless you say, "Put us on your do not call list." they are not required to do it, but the reality is that they are prohibited from interfering -- in any way -- with a do not call request. That includes pretending the request did not take what they consider to be the "right form."This statement is true: " . . .they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission."And, "If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list..." the company is not in compliance with the law. A supervisor or manager may be able to help, but if the caller can't do it, chances are the company is n't even trying to comply. Part of the confusion stems from the fact that they are allowed to call even people who are on state or national Do Not Call registries. However, ALL entities (Even politicians.) are required to have internal DNC lists. They're also required to immediately put you on their list as soon as you ask.

I used to work for market research companies as an interviewer, market research survey calls are not included in the law by the National DNC list, so you may receive calls from market research, they also do not have time restrictions like solicitors since they are not selling anything, companies like Gallup however try to keep it no later than 9 PM.  Most research companies also can disposition a call as Do Not Call, and have the number on a list, but not all of them do this, they are also not required to do so, Gallup and MSR out of Omaha however do, Its annoying, they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission.  If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list...ask for a supervisor or manager...they'll normally get you on something or remove the number from the current program database.  I hope this helps.

I have an Ooma so I blocked this number, and many others like it. They can never call me again.NCO is a company that ttries to scam you out of $$ by bullying you. First this number or any of 10 area codes nationwide will call you and tell you you owe them anywhere from $1200 to $5000 depending on what they think they can get away with.  After they call and hang up 4 or 5 times, someone will call and tell you that because you refused their calls, they have a legal right to demand payment.  They will keep calling at any hour to try to be a nuisance and you will pay just to get them off your back. They operate semi-legally in states with the weakest credit laws. They move operations around so if one number gets blocked, they call back in 2-3 months with a new number you have not blocked yet. The safest thing to do is to tell them that you KNOW they are scam artists and report their number to your local police... they should have a cyber crime unit that handles phone fraud as well. NEVER visit their website as it is full of worms, trojan horses and bots of all kinds.

The government/DNC won’t help you; as a matter of fact they are the ones that are giving your number out.  What was supposed to help you has turned into a weapon against you.  Each month a new list of DNC numbers are released by your ever faithful government to “help” stop telemarketing phone calls but at the same time they make it available to anybody that wants a current list of WORKING NUMBERS!  Guess what by listing your number on the DNC you have just given it to every scam artist out there that has enough balls to register with the DNC.  Your government is too stupid, lazy or calloused to look right under their nose.  Remove your number from the DNC and in two months your scam callers will stop calling (though it may increase local calls).  If you don’t want to remove your number I suggest getting a call blocking device of some type.  I currently have 79 area codes blocked and at least 13 local numbers blocked and I still get repeated calls.  I love getting repeat calls because when my call blocking devices kick in I know it’s costing these morons money because the devices pick up and then hang up and I never hear the phone ring.   Get the last laugh on these jack***es by blocking them not just by complaining.  Complaining won’t stop the calls, -- Nothing Will – but you can silence your phone if you want to. The devices/programs I use are DIGITONE CALL BLOCKER 10 and PHONE TRAY. I may get the occasional stray call that gets through, BUT ONLY ONCE!!!!

When I get these I hit the "#" sign about 6 - 8 times quickly.  Normally it confuses the automated system and it logs the call as an error and most often removes the number from their call list.  If there is a "person" I normally just say "hold on a second" and put the phone down.  It is hilarious to listen to them shouting "hello, hello, hello" before they finally hang up.

Work on your answer voice for something like this and maybe they will think they got their call # list messed up and take you off of it, It wasn't this particular #, it was on the ID tonight when I came back from the store, just might help, good luck. He took it as he knows how bad I hate putting up with them and you have to wait on the answer machine and then sometimes they leave some message you can't make out, we were in the middle of something so it worked out well.

OK: useful information time:  When these ($%&^) call, hang up then pick up the phone and dial *57.  This causes the call to be traced by the telephone company even if the caller was spoofing their caller ID. (it costs $4 on your phone bill unless *57 service is already part of your telephone service package) Then, once you have traced the same number three times, file a complaint with the local police department. The police department can (and is supposed to ) retrieve the tracing information from the telephone company.

. . . People who use this as an excuse to whine and vent, rather than as a powerful took to pool information with which to fight back.If all you "do" about the problem is express an opinion -- here -- that the law needs to be changed, you waste your time and ours. If you write to your elected state and federal representatives, then you're closer to being of some use.Think about it:     Right now, two issues on the political stage are Health Care and Torture. Telemarketing, for many, is torture. If you read these posts, and ads on this site which say things like "Harassed by Phone Calls?" you already know this. So, those who are opposed to torture of our enemies should be quite willing to put a stop to this torture.     There is an ever-growing body of evidence that stress causes a large percentage of health issues. Some doctors give estimates as high as (or higher than) 75% of patient visits being caused by stress. So, anyone who has the slightest interest in any kind of health care availability increase or who advocates any -- no matter how narrow -- particular kind of health care program should be eager to reduce stress among the citizenry.     Which means putting far more restrictions on telemarketing. Whether they are opposed to torture or in favor of health care, the conclusion is the same. And, if they claim telemarketing is not torture, check this: Do they give out their personal home telephone numbers? Are those numbers listed in the phone book? If not, then they are hypocrites, and clearly recognize the stressful -- torturing -- nature of telemarketing.------------------Don't whine. Do something. Post useful contact information about whoever calls you. Don't brag about the stupid act of not answering the phone to find out who is doing the harassment. Grow a pair, pick up the phone, ask some questions. Even play along, if that's what it takes. Find out who is making the calls, then post real information of the useful kind here.And, think about filing lawsuits yourself. If the FCC or FTC is able to collect ten billion trillion dollars from a telemarketer for violating the rules, you won't get a single cent. If you sue them, you can get as much as $20,000 per call.While that is an unlikely and difficult goal to reach (IT HAS BEEN DONE.), it's highly likely and not too difficult to collect between $500 and %1,500 per VIOLATION. And, a single call can potentially comprise multiple violations.

Actually this has changed now. Cell phones are now legal to call for research companies and they will cold call. I have also (on my home number) been receiving cold calls from law firms looking to bolster their potential class action suits. These calls start out as claiming to be a research call also. This number 214-283-1316 has been calling me every day for at least a week, the automated system claims it is a political survey.

Survey Companies are considered telemarketers since they collect and sell your info. This outfit is a scam and violates FCC laws for dead calls and war dialing. They are bound to observe the no call list, but scam outfits never pay attention to it as they are difficult to trace and stay ahead of investigators. I have reported these crooks to FTC and FCC and State Attorney general, but they are impossible to find in a physical location.

The above information is not correct.  Here is the precise language from the National Do Not Call Registries official site.  Survey firms, charities, and politicians, and organizations working on their behalf are not subject to national DNC restrictions."Placing your number on the National Do Not Call Registry will stop most telemarketing calls, but not all. Because of limitations in the jurisdiction of the FTC and FCC, calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities, and telephone surveyors would still be permitted, as would calls from companies with which you have an existing business relationship, or those to whom you’ve provided express agreement in writing to receive their calls. However, if you ask a company with which you have an existing business relationship to place your number on its own do-not-call list, it must honor your request.  You should keep a record of the date you make the request."   (www.donotcall.gov).

Both parties do this.You're getting calls from Democrats, because the data they have on you makes them think there's a good chance you'll vote Democratic.

According to the national DNC registry, a company has 31 days to add you from their do not call list. I recently put a post on facebook that anyone who has signed up for the DNC should go back and read it in it's entirety.

So true.  They're collecting information for some company.  Whether that data gets sold or not, it *could* be sold to more telemarketers and junk mailers.  But, if they have more information about you, your data record will be more valuable to other telemarketers and junk mailers.  Best thing is to do not give out anything.  Funny thing is, peope that are not in the know will believe that it will prevent more calls from that one company, but what people have to realize that companies doesn't just collect information for nothing.

You should see my block list. All is quite now and I am at peace, plus the new service only cost me $9.88 a month, plus taxes. To say that I am happy is an under statement.

I have filed complaints (both FTC/FCC and state) on over 20 numbers in the last couple of months.  Also, I have spoken to the state DA.  The DA's office told me THE DO NOT CALL LIST IS A WASTE OF TIME AND TOTALLY UNENFORCEABLE due to current technology which allows for the creation of fictitious phone numbers.  I keep a rolling list of blocked numbers as my telephone supplier only allows for 12 numbers to be blocked.  I am going to take a suggestion offered in these comments and set automatic forwarding of these calls either to themseleves or another harassing number.

I filed a complaint for this number plus 16 other numbers to the FTC for this Card Services. I have 12 of these numbers blocked on my phone, this is my limit with my phone company. This Company has many numbers they call from including cell phone numbers. All we can do is keep filing these complaints with FTC and maybe they will catch up with this Company. I have been dealing with these people calling me since 2009. I have asked them to take me off their list and all they do is hang up on me. Time to shut this business down. I'm not sure what else to do. I called my Local Phone Co., talked to the Police and filed for the 3rd time on the "Do Not Call List". The Police advised me to file a complaint with the FTC I have done that.  I will be filing a complaint every time they call. So my advice to everyone else is to keep filing a complaint to FTC web site.  https://complaints.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx?panel=2And here is the FTC phone number to file complaints: Phone: Call our toll-free helpline:1-877-FTC-HELP      ( 1-877-382-4357  )TTY: 1-866-653-4261Hope this information helps some of the readers.Lets flood FTC with all these complaints.

This is from an old telemarketer. When you request to be removed from their calling databank,you should also ask for a letter to be mailed to you stating you have been removed. There is also an 800 number each company has for these kind of complaints. Ask for the number and call it if you are bothered again after 72 hours.  If no removal has been done, then report the company to FCC.

Maybe this post explains why there are so many illegal telemarketing calls. Someone starts out as an interviewer, comes to imagine they know all the rules, gets promoted . . . and then applies a lot of rules or implements a lot of waivers that don't exist.NOBODY is entitled to call after 9 p.m.ALL COMPANIES OF ANY FORM, CALLING FOR ANY REASON, are required to stop calling when notified of the recipient's request to stop. Some pretend that, unless you say, "Put us on your do not call list." they are not required to do it, but the reality is that they are prohibited from interfering -- in any way -- with a do not call request. That includes pretending the request did not take what they consider to be the "right form."This statement is true: " . . .they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission."And, "If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list..." the company is not in compliance with the law. A supervisor or manager may be able to help, but if the caller can't do it, chances are the company is n't even trying to comply. Part of the confusion stems from the fact that they are allowed to call even people who are on state or national Do Not Call registries. However, ALL entities (Even politicians.) are required to have internal DNC lists. They're also required to immediately put you on their list as soon as you ask.

I used to work for market research companies as an interviewer, market research survey calls are not included in the law by the National DNC list, so you may receive calls from market research, they also do not have time restrictions like solicitors since they are not selling anything, companies like Gallup however try to keep it no later than 9 PM.  Most research companies also can disposition a call as Do Not Call, and have the number on a list, but not all of them do this, they are also not required to do so, Gallup and MSR out of Omaha however do, Its annoying, they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission.  If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list...ask for a supervisor or manager...they'll normally get you on something or remove the number from the current program database.  I hope this helps.

I have an Ooma so I blocked this number, and many others like it. They can never call me again.NCO is a company that ttries to scam you out of $$ by bullying you. First this number or any of 10 area codes nationwide will call you and tell you you owe them anywhere from $1200 to $5000 depending on what they think they can get away with.  After they call and hang up 4 or 5 times, someone will call and tell you that because you refused their calls, they have a legal right to demand payment.  They will keep calling at any hour to try to be a nuisance and you will pay just to get them off your back. They operate semi-legally in states with the weakest credit laws. They move operations around so if one number gets blocked, they call back in 2-3 months with a new number you have not blocked yet. The safest thing to do is to tell them that you KNOW they are scam artists and report their number to your local police... they should have a cyber crime unit that handles phone fraud as well. NEVER visit their website as it is full of worms, trojan horses and bots of all kinds.

I have worked for WIT for one year now. It is a great place to work.  You folkes have a lot of complaint and I think I undertand the probable reason why. When you aree to purchase an item you  are simply not doing the math. Use Packing Tape as an example.  Val informes you a current promotional rate PER Roll. Your company should know how many rolls are in 1/2 a case or a full case. Simply multiply! I also believe that their are a large amount of employees at these companies who THINK they can make a purchase for the company and upon receiving shipment they get chewed out by the real purchaser for shipping and wherehouse items. You should all be aware that this happens a lot. I cannot tell you the amount of times where someone has told me that they are in charge of purchases in warehouse and shipping and by the time I have completed our conversation,I would learn that they were subsequently not the person in charge of purchases. WIT is a very good company and its telemarketers are always taught to be professional and polite. You companies that are complaining so much should realize that human error will occur. I also do not believe that our shipping department would charge any of you for the shipping. This is very important to the promotion. In fact,its the most important thing that we follow thru on. I would also like to add that companies are informed within the first 10 seconds of the fact that we will be sending a catalog out in the near future. This does'nt necessarily mean with the current order. So...complain away and get yourself all stirred up over "your" lack of understanding. WIT has been in business for 30 years and will continue to do so for the next 30 years. I would like to add one more thing. When problems have arrived with an order,and all shipping companies do make errors, I have seen val strive to make the customer happy. Obviously because we desire repeat customers. Not unsatisfies ones. I wish all of the best of luck and best wishes.

The garbage bags they were sending me were $30.00 for 200 of them. When several days had passed I got concerned and phoned "Val" to see where my order was but the phone didn't ring. I decided to look them up on the internet and to my surprise I saw all this negativity about the company. I tried another number that was listed for them and nothing. I decided that when the bags arrived I would refuse them and sent them back with UPS. I just received a invoice for the garbage bags for $239.98 + $42.92 shipping for a total of $282.90 a far cry from $30.00 they told me I would be charged. I have never been scammed before, boy did I learn my lesson! What has happened since this occurred? Have they left you alone?

Update. I called them and let them know that I didn't order anything from them and that I refused the package they tried to send to me.  They were very rude to me on the phone.  I just recieved an invoice for the product that I didn't order.  They call themselves W.I.T.  or Wholesale Industrial Tape.  Underneath the name it says Plastic and Medical Supplies.  I have searched and searched for this company and cannot find it anywhere.  It is so incredibly wrong to send product and an invoice to someone that didn't order anything.  I am lucky that I caught it.

A company that called themself W.I.T. called me and asked to verify my address so that they could send me a catalog.  Instead, they sent shrink wrap that I didn't order.  Luckily, I caught it when the UPS driver arrived and I refused the order.  I couldn't find their company anywhere online.  I looked up the address:  7405 Woodlee, Van Nuys, CA 91406 and some other company name comes up.  I got this address off the boxes that they sent to me.  Very shady business.

It is a company that makes the fraud calls for B of A cards.  I updated my address yesterday so they were calling to verify that no one had stolen my cards or tried to change my address and intercept the new card. They didn't ask for any personal information other than the phone number they called to reach me.  They asked for an approximate balance on one bill and that was it.  NO personal info.  it's plain old card services, where you write your check to every month when paying your bill.

I looked here for the same reasons after getting calls with no messages from this number.  In my case there was no problem with the account, but because of this thread I called them to ask.   It turned out BOA had called me from that number to question a charge that they suspected could be fraudulent, but it wasn't.  So yes this is a legitimate number.  Even so, in order to trust your responses they do ask you some security questions that aren't good to answer to any random caller, it's always better if you call them on a published number, then you know who's on the other end.

Got three calls today, third call they left a message. I didn't trust it, so I called the 800 number on the back of my Bank of America Visa, and they did confirm that 302-731-1166 is the BofA fraud department. They were calling because two unusual charges were pending on my account, and it turns out $500 of fraudulent charges had been placed on my card. They had to cancel the card and send a new one. I will say that the 302 area code message and phone system seems shady; I didn't trust it, but if you get a call, you should definitely contact BofA through the 800 number on your card to make sure your account is okay.

This thread is hysterical. Bottom line is this is a real number. I don't condone ever giving personal info to a person that called you claiming to be a bank, but doing so if the person is calling from this number likely won't be an issue. I missed a call from this number and googled it immediately. I decided to check my online account since so many said it was the fraud dept. Turns out my account was locked due to unusual activity. Coincidence? I guess it's possible but it's much more likely this is a legit BOA call. My guess is that those who are being told this is a scam by BOA are speaking to customer service reps who are uninformed and just assuming that since they don't recognize the number it must not be legit. Still, it's probably best to tell the caller you will call back. It will take you more time but better safe than sorry. These people insisting that this is a scam are doing more harm than good because if you get a call from this number, you likely have a problem with your credit card and need to take action. Don't ignore because you think this is a scam.

I did not answer the 302-731-1166 call and they did not leave any message. I called the number on the back of my card and BofA verified that they did indeed try to reach me. There was a $1 pending charge from google which BofA said is often an attempt by someone to see if the card number is valid before they start running up charges. Since I never charge using google, my card number has been compromised and I will be getting a new one.

***  PLEASE READ THIS MESSAGE BEFORE YOU CALL BACK  ****** DO NOT GIVE ANYONE CALLING YOUR INFORMATION ***This is absolutely a classic phishing scam. All the signs are there and I have received confirmation from Bank of America that it is indeed one.What to look for: the callers left a voicemail on my phone. The call contained most of the red flags you'd expect in a scam message:1. An "ALERT" noise which sounds a bit like the Fox news broadcast or CNN broadcast alerts to create urgency.2. A reference to a card ending in 4299. None of my cards end in that code, but I'm sure many people getting this message would not check first.  3. A prerecorded message which, if you listen to carefully, seems choppy as if someone spliced it together from an official call.4. A request to call back *immediately* to a number not published on the bank's website. You'd think the bank would publish the number for verification purposes.5. A warning of a hold if the call isn't returned further creating urgency. Instructions are then given to call 866-559-0025 and enter in a pin number (to make it seem legit).6. The message then stresses to disregard any messages from Bank of America online or any text alerts received on your mobile phone. Which makes sense since the last thing the scammers want is for you to actually call the bank.7. I call the number which identifies itself as "card services". Umm hmm. Many banks do outsource service functions as posters have stated above, but due to the nature of financial information, the outsource company usually operates separate lines and identifies the financial institution they represent on a particular inbound or outbound call.8. . The first thing I hear is instructions to enter in a billing zip code without so much as an identification. I enter in a bogus code in another state and sail onto the next step. That was the clincher.I promptly hang up and call the Bank of America number on my card. The representative I get runs a quick sweep of my account and indicates no fraud alert has been issued.It's a fairly well done fake, and I feel bad for the people who posted "it's legit!" on this post, because they likely gave a scammer their card info, pin and personal info.  Hopefully this message will save you time, money and angst.

Got the call this morning.  They didn't leave the message.  Everyone says it's legit from BoA, so I simply called their customer service number on the back of the card.  Two charges were made (yesterday and today), and they thought they were funny.  Both were legit charges.The same thing happened with a different account at a different bank.  I had two online purchases they thought were suspicious, so they stopped them until they contacted me.  Again, both of those were legit, so they released the funds.I'm guessing that the person on the other end who couldn't speak English is probably working for BoA because of outsourcing.  That, or they mysteriously only staff their call centers with people of Indian or Pakistani origin.  But odd how they would steal my card number, run up plenty of suspicious charges (which were all legitimate), and then call me to get my credit card number which they already stole.  Why call to get a number that was already stolen in the first place?As for how funny it was that the call came on MLK day, when banks are closed that day - I'm pretty sure just about every bank is closed on Sunday, yet when I called the customer service number, I spoke to a person.  Could it be that, in this Internet age, banks hire people to man customer service numbers and other phones on - gasp - a Sunday or a holiday?Then again, what do I know?  Since I don't agree with Mila 100%, I must be a scam artist who is getting all sorts of kickbacks.  Bottom line, if you don't want to give the info to the number that called, then don't.  But at least contact the customer service number on the back of the card - odds are that something could potentially be wrong with the account.

This is a legitimate number.  I got a call from this number this morning but I did not answer the phone.  After checking on the web, I called the number.  A guy answered the phone and requested me to give him my credit card number.  He said there is a suspected fraudulent activity.  I told him I have a few cards and I need to know which.  He won't released any information.  He asked me which card I had recently used and that payment failed.  I did use my BOA card to pay my ACCA membership in sterling pound just 10 minutes ago and it failed to go through.  Being cautious, I told him I will call my bank directly.  I called BOA # at the back of my card and true enough my card was temporarily blocked due to this payment made.  After clarifying that it was indeed a payment made by me, they released the block on my card.  I think they are doing a good job in preventing fraudulent activities.  I asked BOA regarding the first phone call and they said it was legitimate.

You are completely wrong, this number is used by their automatic fraud protection system. It’s a computer calling you to inform you about possible fraud activity. You will also receive at least one e-mail when receiving calls from this number. The reason this number is not listed and is not the same as the 1800 # on the back of the card is they don’t want you calling it back because it is just for the automated system. Almost every large company uses this process so stop telling people this is a FRAUD when it’s not. Please research your facts before giving advice that is totally wrong.

I am almost positive that this is a legit number. I got a call from this number that I missed on my cell phone. I also received an email claiming to be from BofA saying that there was potential fraudulent activity on my account, with an 800 number to call or a link to a fraud alert website. Being cautious, but not paranoid, I just went to my on-line account via the usual method, to find that it was blocked due to potential fraudulent charges, so I had to clear it. First I had to enter my account #, then there were a bunch of multiple choice questions that no one else would know the answers to, then they asked for the last 4 digits of my SSN, and finally they showed me all of my charges for the last three days and asked if they were all legit. They were, though some did seem a little odd, so I said "yes" and then the message said that my card was cleared. The odds of my getting a scam call, especially on my cell phone which has never happened before, and my account actually being blocked like that show that the call I received was from BofA.

I'm reposting this up here because these scam "artists" hired a bunch of monkeys (with terrible grammar and spelling skills if I may add...) to go on the front page and push back most of the comments indicating that this is a scam. Thus filling the front page with a bunch of BS about how it is a legitimate number....Get a call from these a-holes twice this morning. Didn't pick up because I never answer calls I don't recognize (especially if they don't leave a voicemail the first time) and I especially never answer calls from out of state I don't recognize because it's always a scam.Anyways, I looked up the number on here and confirmed my suspicions that it was a scam call. Interestingly enough, when I checked my BoA account, it had been closed because of suspicious fraudulent charges. The number for the fraudulent number ON THE ACTUAL BoA website does not match the number that called me. My guess is these jerk offs steal your card and make a lot of suspicious purchases making BoA instantly close your account because of their security settings. So just in case you are suspicious enough to check your account after they called you, you will see your account is closed and think the call is actually from Bank of America.SPOILER ALERT: IT NEVER IS. It never will be. A company will NEVER ever contact you for your personal information. DO NOT GIVE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO AN INCOMING CALL/EMAIL EVER.I also love how they called me on f***ing Martin Luther King Jr. day so all the banks are closed. It's also another red flag.Don't listen to the other posts on this site claiming the number is legit. I have nothing to gain but they have everything to lose if you listen to the people claiming it's a scam. Only ever give out information after directly calling the company's line listed on your card.Your account may most likely be closed because these scammers know what they are doing. But please, do NOT think that because your account is closed when you received the call that it is legitimately BoA. Better safe than sorry. Hell, go to BoA directly. It's not just money scam artists will take they can destroy your credit score and impersonate you to the point where your name will forever be tarnished.

Today I've got a call from (302)731-1166. Since this # is not familar to me, so I checked it online.And saw your post there saying this # is from Bank of America Credit Card Fraudulent Service". I called the # and it was busy. Then I called the 800# Customer Service showing on the back of my credit card. As always, I was asked to enter my last four digits of my account number, which I did. Then I was asked to enter my social security number, which was very unsual and has never been done before, But I also did. Then the voice in the phone said that please enter "1" at any time if I couldn't recognize or were not familiar with the charges when they read all the charges on my credit account. I immdiatelly realized that it was not right right after the first charge was read to me. Then I entered "1", and was connected right away to the real person at the Customer Service. After they verified with me for my residential address and email address, and I told them the last purchase I used my credit card to make the payment. After a short while, I was told that they would close my current account and would issue new card to me within days. Although I am upset and frustrated about this instance, I  appreciate so much for the great job that Bank of America has done. I also want to say "go to the hell" to those nasty thieves.

That number isn't a scam or fraud.  I got a call from that number and they did not ask for SS or even my account #.  They closed my account and issued me a new card.  Then i called the number on the back of the card and spoke with a representative who said it was legit.

You're retarded, this number is legitimate.

If these "scammers" already have that info you've already been had. Hint: they have that info because it's Bank of America.

This is a real Bank Of America phone number.  In fact, if you look at the back of your credit card you'll see a phone number that has the same (302) 73X-XXX area code and prefix.  Bank of America is a HUGE company and probably has tens of thousands of assigned telephone numbers.  As a result they probably have the entire range of the 302 area code's 730 through 739 prefixes.  The phone number you received a call from is most likely one of their fraud detection robo callers.  If you aren't comfortable giving out your private information (which is entirely understandble) to an inbound caller you should just tell them "I'll call you guys back using the number on the back of the credit card."  It's that simple.

This is in fact B of A calling. I was called by the number and picked up about fraudulent charge on my BofA account. After going through the automated prompts to verify a charge, a computer generated voice stated a company I was not familiar with in which I was then connected to the female representative that spoke fluent English.  After verifying 3 most recent purchases, the last being of $1 charged today from Mexico which I did not make, the other 2 being charges I verified on my online Bof A access as ones I did incur or valid charges, they cancelled my card and informed me I will receive a new card.  To be safe, I called the number on the back of my credit card 5 minutes after hanging up with the representative that informed me my card would be cancelled and after following the prompts the automated system stating my account had been closed and thank you for calling.  This is a legitimate call and after reading this thread is what prompted me to call the credit card 800 number on the back of the card. I'm confident I was not victim of a fishing scam from this number but I understand in today's society why everyone needs to be hypervigilent against theives posing as legitimate business

You are both very wrong and clearly have some try of grudge against BoA or are an unhappy customer. This number is used by their automatic fraud protection system. It’s a computer calling you to inform you about possible fraud activity. You will also receive at least one e-mail when receiving calls from this number. The reason this number is not listed and is not the same as the 1800 # on the back of the card is they don’t want you calling it back because it is just for the automated system. Almost every large company uses this process so stop telling people this is a FRAUD when it’s not. This site is here to inform people about the identity of a number not to spew your views or issues with said company.

I have an Ooma so I blocked this number, and many others like it. They can never call me again.NCO is a company that ttries to scam you out of $$ by bullying you. First this number or any of 10 area codes nationwide will call you and tell you you owe them anywhere from $1200 to $5000 depending on what they think they can get away with.  After they call and hang up 4 or 5 times, someone will call and tell you that because you refused their calls, they have a legal right to demand payment.  They will keep calling at any hour to try to be a nuisance and you will pay just to get them off your back. They operate semi-legally in states with the weakest credit laws. They move operations around so if one number gets blocked, they call back in 2-3 months with a new number you have not blocked yet. The safest thing to do is to tell them that you KNOW they are scam artists and report their number to your local police... they should have a cyber crime unit that handles phone fraud as well. NEVER visit their website as it is full of worms, trojan horses and bots of all kinds.

The government/DNC won’t help you; as a matter of fact they are the ones that are giving your number out.  What was supposed to help you has turned into a weapon against you.  Each month a new list of DNC numbers are released by your ever faithful government to “help” stop telemarketing phone calls but at the same time they make it available to anybody that wants a current list of WORKING NUMBERS!  Guess what by listing your number on the DNC you have just given it to every scam artist out there that has enough balls to register with the DNC.  Your government is too stupid, lazy or calloused to look right under their nose.  Remove your number from the DNC and in two months your scam callers will stop calling (though it may increase local calls).  If you don’t want to remove your number I suggest getting a call blocking device of some type.  I currently have 79 area codes blocked and at least 13 local numbers blocked and I still get repeated calls.  I love getting repeat calls because when my call blocking devices kick in I know it’s costing these morons money because the devices pick up and then hang up and I never hear the phone ring.   Get the last laugh on these jack***es by blocking them not just by complaining.  Complaining won’t stop the calls, -- Nothing Will – but you can silence your phone if you want to. The devices/programs I use are DIGITONE CALL BLOCKER 10 and PHONE TRAY. I may get the occasional stray call that gets through, BUT ONLY ONCE!!!!

OK: useful information time:  When these ($%&^) call, hang up then pick up the phone and dial *57.  This causes the call to be traced by the telephone company even if the caller was spoofing their caller ID. (it costs $4 on your phone bill unless *57 service is already part of your telephone service package) Then, once you have traced the same number three times, file a complaint with the local police department. The police department can (and is supposed to ) retrieve the tracing information from the telephone company.

A local TV station just ran a piece indicating that the scammers and marketeers are ignoring the law because of Robo call technology and they evade getting fined.  I truly believe phone companies need to be heavily fined vs giving businesses such as these breaks in their bills.  Do you know what all those fees comsumers are for?  Please put the pressure on by contacting your local SAG and local media.

In order to sue you must know who is calling, their legal name and address. Sometimes the caller SAYS he is from XYZ company in Florida but XYZ Company in florida claims it isn't them or XYZ Co went bankrupt 5 yrs ago or ....the name is a "Doing Business as" name. Finding the real name of an unregistered DBA name or trade name is difficult at best. Since when do these telemarketers tell the truth

You're doing exactally what you are complaining others are doing only you are wasting more time and space than they are. Just pick up the phone and hang it up. These messages are only to see if the number is a valid number so a telemarketer can call you back later. They make a list and sell them to telemarketers.

. . . People who use this as an excuse to whine and vent, rather than as a powerful took to pool information with which to fight back.If all you "do" about the problem is express an opinion -- here -- that the law needs to be changed, you waste your time and ours. If you write to your elected state and federal representatives, then you're closer to being of some use.Think about it:     Right now, two issues on the political stage are Health Care and Torture. Telemarketing, for many, is torture. If you read these posts, and ads on this site which say things like "Harassed by Phone Calls?" you already know this. So, those who are opposed to torture of our enemies should be quite willing to put a stop to this torture.     There is an ever-growing body of evidence that stress causes a large percentage of health issues. Some doctors give estimates as high as (or higher than) 75% of patient visits being caused by stress. So, anyone who has the slightest interest in any kind of health care availability increase or who advocates any -- no matter how narrow -- particular kind of health care program should be eager to reduce stress among the citizenry.     Which means putting far more restrictions on telemarketing. Whether they are opposed to torture or in favor of health care, the conclusion is the same. And, if they claim telemarketing is not torture, check this: Do they give out their personal home telephone numbers? Are those numbers listed in the phone book? If not, then they are hypocrites, and clearly recognize the stressful -- torturing -- nature of telemarketing.------------------Don't whine. Do something. Post useful contact information about whoever calls you. Don't brag about the stupid act of not answering the phone to find out who is doing the harassment. Grow a pair, pick up the phone, ask some questions. Even play along, if that's what it takes. Find out who is making the calls, then post real information of the useful kind here.And, think about filing lawsuits yourself. If the FCC or FTC is able to collect ten billion trillion dollars from a telemarketer for violating the rules, you won't get a single cent. If you sue them, you can get as much as $20,000 per call.While that is an unlikely and difficult goal to reach (IT HAS BEEN DONE.), it's highly likely and not too difficult to collect between $500 and %1,500 per VIOLATION. And, a single call can potentially comprise multiple violations.

The above information is not correct.  Here is the precise language from the National Do Not Call Registries official site.  Survey firms, charities, and politicians, and organizations working on their behalf are not subject to national DNC restrictions."Placing your number on the National Do Not Call Registry will stop most telemarketing calls, but not all. Because of limitations in the jurisdiction of the FTC and FCC, calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities, and telephone surveyors would still be permitted, as would calls from companies with which you have an existing business relationship, or those to whom you’ve provided express agreement in writing to receive their calls. However, if you ask a company with which you have an existing business relationship to place your number on its own do-not-call list, it must honor your request.  You should keep a record of the date you make the request."   (www.donotcall.gov).

Maybe this post explains why there are so many illegal telemarketing calls. Someone starts out as an interviewer, comes to imagine they know all the rules, gets promoted . . . and then applies a lot of rules or implements a lot of waivers that don't exist.NOBODY is entitled to call after 9 p.m.ALL COMPANIES OF ANY FORM, CALLING FOR ANY REASON, are required to stop calling when notified of the recipient's request to stop. Some pretend that, unless you say, "Put us on your do not call list." they are not required to do it, but the reality is that they are prohibited from interfering -- in any way -- with a do not call request. That includes pretending the request did not take what they consider to be the "right form."This statement is true: " . . .they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission."And, "If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list..." the company is not in compliance with the law. A supervisor or manager may be able to help, but if the caller can't do it, chances are the company is n't even trying to comply. Part of the confusion stems from the fact that they are allowed to call even people who are on state or national Do Not Call registries. However, ALL entities (Even politicians.) are required to have internal DNC lists. They're also required to immediately put you on their list as soon as you ask.

I used to work for market research companies as an interviewer, market research survey calls are not included in the law by the National DNC list, so you may receive calls from market research, they also do not have time restrictions like solicitors since they are not selling anything, companies like Gallup however try to keep it no later than 9 PM.  Most research companies also can disposition a call as Do Not Call, and have the number on a list, but not all of them do this, they are also not required to do so, Gallup and MSR out of Omaha however do, Its annoying, they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission.  If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list...ask for a supervisor or manager...they'll normally get you on something or remove the number from the current program database.  I hope this helps.

The government/DNC won’t help you; as a matter of fact they are the ones that are giving your number out.  What was supposed to help you has turned into a weapon against you.  Each month a new list of DNC numbers are released by your ever faithful government to “help” stop telemarketing phone calls but at the same time they make it available to anybody that wants a current list of WORKING NUMBERS!  Guess what by listing your number on the DNC you have just given it to every scam artist out there that has enough balls to register with the DNC.  Your government is too stupid, lazy or calloused to look right under their nose.  Remove your number from the DNC and in two months your scam callers will stop calling (though it may increase local calls).  If you don’t want to remove your number I suggest getting a call blocking device of some type.  I currently have 79 area codes blocked and at least 13 local numbers blocked and I still get repeated calls.  I love getting repeat calls because when my call blocking devices kick in I know it’s costing these morons money because the devices pick up and then hang up and I never hear the phone ring.   Get the last laugh on these jack***es by blocking them not just by complaining.  Complaining won’t stop the calls, -- Nothing Will – but you can silence your phone if you want to. The devices/programs I use are DIGITONE CALL BLOCKER 10 and PHONE TRAY. I may get the occasional stray call that gets through, BUT ONLY ONCE!!!!

When I get these I hit the "#" sign about 6 - 8 times quickly.  Normally it confuses the automated system and it logs the call as an error and most often removes the number from their call list.  If there is a "person" I normally just say "hold on a second" and put the phone down.  It is hilarious to listen to them shouting "hello, hello, hello" before they finally hang up.

I posted my response on page 26 of this post, there are that many, all the way back to 07. Anyway this page comes up first and so I thought this might help, maybe not, here it  goes. I let my son answer one of these the other night, he worked at the pizza parlor in high school, he told me to let him answer when he saw the ID on the TV screen, he just answered it like he was at work as he just said "Hello, _---___--'s Pizza, how may I take your order tonight", they hung up just like that. Work on your answer voice for something like this and maybe they will think they got their call # list messed up and take you off of it, It wasn't this particular #, it was on the ID tonight when I came back from the store, just might help, good luck. He took it as he knows how bad I hate putting up with them and you have to wait on the answer machine and then sometimes they leave some message you can't make out, we were in the middle of something so it worked out well.

OK: useful information time:  When these ($%&^) call, hang up then pick up the phone and dial *57.  This causes the call to be traced by the telephone company even if the caller was spoofing their caller ID. (it costs $4 on your phone bill unless *57 service is already part of your telephone service package) Then, once you have traced the same number three times, file a complaint with the local police department. The police department can (and is supposed to ) retrieve the tracing information from the telephone company.

. . . People who use this as an excuse to whine and vent, rather than as a powerful took to pool information with which to fight back.If all you "do" about the problem is express an opinion -- here -- that the law needs to be changed, you waste your time and ours. If you write to your elected state and federal representatives, then you're closer to being of some use.Think about it:     Right now, two issues on the political stage are Health Care and Torture. Telemarketing, for many, is torture. If you read these posts, and ads on this site which say things like "Harassed by Phone Calls?" you already know this. So, those who are opposed to torture of our enemies should be quite willing to put a stop to this torture.     There is an ever-growing body of evidence that stress causes a large percentage of health issues. Some doctors give estimates as high as (or higher than) 75% of patient visits being caused by stress. So, anyone who has the slightest interest in any kind of health care availability increase or who advocates any -- no matter how narrow -- particular kind of health care program should be eager to reduce stress among the citizenry.     Which means putting far more restrictions on telemarketing. Whether they are opposed to torture or in favor of health care, the conclusion is the same. And, if they claim telemarketing is not torture, check this: Do they give out their personal home telephone numbers? Are those numbers listed in the phone book? If not, then they are hypocrites, and clearly recognize the stressful -- torturing -- nature of telemarketing.------------------Don't whine. Do something. Post useful contact information about whoever calls you. Don't brag about the stupid act of not answering the phone to find out who is doing the harassment. Grow a pair, pick up the phone, ask some questions. Even play along, if that's what it takes. Find out who is making the calls, then post real information of the useful kind here.And, think about filing lawsuits yourself. If the FCC or FTC is able to collect ten billion trillion dollars from a telemarketer for violating the rules, you won't get a single cent. If you sue them, you can get as much as $20,000 per call.While that is an unlikely and difficult goal to reach (IT HAS BEEN DONE.), it's highly likely and not too difficult to collect between $500 and %1,500 per VIOLATION. And, a single call can potentially comprise multiple violations.

Because of limitations in the jurisdiction of the FTC and FCC, calls from or on behalf of political organizations, charities, and telephone surveyors would still be permitted, as would calls from companies with which you have an existing business relationship, or those to whom you’ve provided express agreement in writing to receive their calls. However, if you ask a company with which you have an existing business relationship to place your number on its own do-not-call list, it must honor your request.  You should keep a record of the date you make the request."   (www.donotcall.gov).

I filed a complaint for this number plus 16 other numbers to the FTC for this Card Services. I have 12 of these numbers blocked on my phone, this is my limit with my phone company. This Company has many numbers they call from including cell phone numbers. All we can do is keep filing these complaints with FTC and maybe they will catch up with this Company. I have been dealing with these people calling me since 2009. I have asked them to take me off their list and all they do is hang up on me. Time to shut this business down. I'm not sure what else to do. I called my Local Phone Co., talked to the Police and filed for the 3rd time on the "Do Not Call List". The Police advised me to file a complaint with the FTC I have done that.  I will be filing a complaint every time they call. So my advice to everyone else is to keep filing a complaint to FTC web site.  https://complaints.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx?panel=2And here is the FTC phone number to file complaints: Phone: Call our toll-free helpline:1-877-FTC-HELP      ( 1-877-382-4357  )TTY: 1-866-653-4261Hope this information helps some of the readers.Lets flood FTC with all these complaints. Maybe they will do something about it.

Doesn't help what the company does is change the calling phone number. I have gotten so many calls from this person wanting me to change credit cards to their company. It is always the same person with a different phone number. That's how they get around this.

This is from an old telemarketer. When you request to be removed from their calling databank,you should also ask for a letter to be mailed to you stating you have been removed. There is also an 800 number each company has for these kind of complaints. Ask for the number and call it if you are bothered again after 72 hours.  If no removal has been done, then report the company to FCC.

Maybe this post explains why there are so many illegal telemarketing calls. Someone starts out as an interviewer, comes to imagine they know all the rules, gets promoted . . . and then applies a lot of rules or implements a lot of waivers that don't exist.NOBODY is entitled to call after 9 p.m.ALL COMPANIES OF ANY FORM, CALLING FOR ANY REASON, are required to stop calling when notified of the recipient's request to stop. Some pretend that, unless you say, "Put us on your do not call list." they are not required to do it, but the reality is that they are prohibited from interfering -- in any way -- with a do not call request. That includes pretending the request did not take what they consider to be the "right form."This statement is true: " . . .they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission."And, "If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list..." the company is not in compliance with the law. A supervisor or manager may be able to help, but if the caller can't do it, chances are the company is n't even trying to comply. Part of the confusion stems from the fact that they are allowed to call even people who are on state or national Do Not Call registries. However, ALL entities (Even politicians.) are required to have internal DNC lists. They're also required to immediately put you on their list as soon as you ask.

I used to work for market research companies as an interviewer, market research survey calls are not included in the law by the National DNC list, so you may receive calls from market research, they also do not have time restrictions like solicitors since they are not selling anything, companies like Gallup however try to keep it no later than 9 PM.  Most research companies also can disposition a call as Do Not Call, and have the number on a list, but not all of them do this, they are also not required to do so, Gallup and MSR out of Omaha however do, Its annoying, they still cannot call a personal cell phone though unless you give them permission.  If they tell you they can not put you on a DNC list...ask for a supervisor or manager...they'll normally get you on something or remove the number from the current program database.  I hope this helps.

A research company called with an automated survey. There is no way to opt out as far as I understand. I answered the questions. Hopefully they will stop calling. Did anyone manage to unsubscribe from them?
