Frequent calls from this #.  480 area code fooled me once & as soon as I heard the man start with a sales pitch I cut the connection & have never answered since.  As soon as I see the # I pick up & immediately hang up.  This has been going on for a while now.  I've been getting toll free & assorted other junk calls & reporting is a joke - so I usually let it ring to answering machine or pick up & hang up.
Report by Charles Long ago Unknown
I received a call from this number twice in five minutes -- the first time was the usual 4 or 5 rings and then stopped; the second call must have rang 30 times or more before they gave up.I have caller ID and never answer any calls from a locale, person, or number I don't recognize.  This call said PHOENIX, AZ and the number.  I know no one in Phoenix so I just let it ring.

5-5-2015....Also did a call back twice to get the instant message that it belonged to a skype user. First call back the dude was pressing for my name. Provided first name only and asked what the business was. Dude got more agitated and sounded Oriental but possibly Indian in descent. I hung up. Sent a text message back and now got a message 24 hours later calling me a dick-wad and saying something about my dog being in his yard and should he come down to talk to me. It appears by doing a google search for the number that others dating back years have had a similar issue.

All of you who they are telling they are from England, Germany, India or whatever...that is the first indication of a scam. 661 area code is Bakersfield CA. They are using that number as a turn around in order to hide their real number since that is a skype phone number. All of you that are getting scammed might want to try this...Anytime you get a call from any unknown number do not answer. Instead google the number first and if they are legit= IE no reports filed you can always call them back, preferably from a blocked number. Good Luck all.?

The caller's name is Alex Rozera, or rather that is the name that appears on Caller ID when 661-748-0240 is the originating number.  A second number used is 415-800-4496, which is listed to AvTech, a California-based computer support firm that has operated for about five years, according to their web site.  Although Rozera identified himself as a Microsoft Tech Support employee, I confirmed with Microsoft that neither he nor AvTech have any affiliation with Microsoft.It appears that his game is to call to discuss multiple infections and then sell tech support services to remove them.

Either way he was asking her some personal questions that seemed a little off so i told her to hang up again so he asked my sister who i was and why i was telling her to hang up...well when she told him how wierd the call was with a lame prize, thick accent, and tons of bakground noise for being a legit establishment he didnt know what to say besides it sounds like im an angry person. But now that i know it is a scam i probably shouldnt have asked why i sont get a call for some free taxi rides but it was a givaway after he said he was going to try and get ahold of me next... just thought it was a funny story she knew it was a scam though.

This number is the same for any one using Skype. That usually means they are calling from outside the US. It doesn't necessarily mean scam but a bigger company would generally pay for their intl staff to have access to a US number for dialing. So use your own judgement.

I got a call from this number 2 weeks ago. Didn't pick up the phone or anything. They called me again today and said something about my windows account had been hacked and I had a trojan virus on it. I told him that I don't have a computer (just to confuse him, I do however own one) and He said it was my name on the account. (He had a thick indian accent) I told him to take my number off his list and to NEVER call me again. This is probably some new scam they are trying

FYI this is a SKYPE number. It is shared by hundreds if not thousands of Skype callers. Even though Skype is sometimes used by SCAMMERS, such as the cases listed here, it is certainly possible that someone may call you with this number who is TOTALLY LEGIT. So if you have friends or relatives who use Skype, don't be surprised if this phone number shows up in your caller ID.

From what im reading online and in these forums,so many if us are receiving harassing scam calls from generic untraceable Skype numbers, and Skype customer service is being entirely unhelpful and unwilling to do anything about it. This is beyond poor business practice. It is practically harassment being aided by Skype, and i think we need to send Skype a message about their lack of concern for this. If you are getting calls on a regular basis or at all hours of the day and night from numbers like 661-748-0240  then you know what im talking about. Do not call lists do not work. I suggest either filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and/or discontinuing using Skype and using another similar service. If the BBB receives enough complaints they will take action, and there are many alternative services just like Skype who will take your complaints seriously. On top of all this, Microsoft purchased Skype and has implemented the ability to LISTEN IN ON YOUR SKYPE CALLS. There are several articles on Forbes.com about this. Here is a link to one of them: http://www.forbes.com/sites/ericjackson/2012/ ... my-skype-calls/You can just google microsoft listening in on skype to find msny similar stories. That alone should make you want to change services. Here is one link that gives you seversl alternatives to Skype:http://www.zdnet.com/blog/networking/skype-ju ... p-services/2488Skype should be ashamed, embarassed, and face consequences for their poor handling of this. Sure it may be a small hassle to file a BBB complaint or change services, but not as much of one as receiving constant harrassing scam calls and having your calls snooped on! Dont just lie down and let them get away with this. Let your friends and contacts know as well.

An India-based company named DNF Global Solutions.Obviously, this is a well-connected establishment who are "harassing" and scamming people. Read my story and I did file a report. I was locked out of my Hotmail account and I was in this continuous loop. I searched the Internet and came across this company who provided tech support for Hotmail. I contacted them and I was told by this “tech” named Nick Nelson that 227 emails were sent from my computer requesting people’s financial data. I entered a contract with them for 3 years that they would provide all of the tech support for my computer. I later found out that companies like DNF Global Solutions are ripping people off. The name of this company is DNF Global Solutions who are located in India. The “tech” installed this Super AntiSpyware virus, which made my computer slower and infected my computer with viruses; my files were being deleted, uploaded and files were hidden. After I did my research, I learned that was a rogue virus to annoy me and to infect my computer, which it did. The scary part is that they were able to unblock my Hotmail account. I changed all of my passwords. While, I was speaking to them, someone gained access to my online banking account. They became the Administrative of the computer and I have not been able to repair it. I was told to call 866-921-5154 for tech support. They were calling me various phone numbers from 661-748-0244, 661-748-0240, 661-748-0242, 661-380-3000, 661-748-0245, but when I called the numbers back, it did not go through. I thought that was odd. After they failed to answer my questions, I decided to terminate the relationship. I spoke to a manager named Sonya who was shooting the “energy” over the phone. There is no DNF Global Solutions with Mike Hughes as the President. 866-921-5154 is the Toll-free number to an all-inclusive exotic vacation; http://allinclusive-adult-vacations.com/desinaion.htm, as well as, to an India phone number. The phone numbers that the “technicians” were calling from apparently were fraudulent because many people were complaining about how they were unethical telemarketers. My computer has not crashed so the forensics can be obtained off it to get their IP Address so that their illegal activities can be stopped.

This is NOT Microsoft. We got the same phone call and same number. We called Microsoft about it, and they assured us it's a scam. We gave them the name and and phone number that he called from. That number was 231-629-4824. This guy also had a heavy Indian accent. We told him to call back in half hour. The lady from Microsoft gave us a direct number where we could reach her at, cause she wanted to know if he called back or not. NO information was given to him whatsoever. NOW, the strange part, as I'm reading all these responses, is he DID call back half hour later, BUT the phone number showed Skype user 661-748-0240. So we called the Microsoft lady back, and she said evidently the 2 are connected together in some way. She thanked me and said they will investigate this. Oh yes, check this one out also: we couldn't hardly understand him cause of his accent, and we wanted his name. So he said each letter one by one like A as in apple. That way. WELL, the name spelled out Andrew Austin. Some Indian name, huh.

Microsoft does NOT cold call people, period. They dont call customers ever unless you call them first and they're calling to follow up. Microsoft will not get notified if your computer has viruses or anything else, if they did they would be getting notices every 10 seconds or so and would be calling people constantly. They dont have the time or man power for that. Nor, frankly, do they really care.

Be careful I received the same call from 661-748-0240 say my computer sent them a message, ask questions like what brand of computer Dell, HP, etc and what model type Studio, Mini etc they will start running through a list, meaning there guessing, for the fun of it I had a old lap top I hardly use so I plugged it in OMG all the spyware and trojans that lap top had. If you let them take control of the laptop watch they are copying every file computer so beware of that, then they had the nerve to ask me for a credit-card to charge 218.00 usd to get rid of all the affective files LOL save yourself some money go to start, then type in run then enter %TEMP% and delete then do a disk clean and your affected file are gone.

"Do you realize that her reversed charges end up costing us money in the aggregate?" is only true if the card companies cannot claw money back from the scammer. Clawback is probable in this case IMO because the scam appears to be ongoing. EVERYTHING the credit card companies and the banks do costs us money in the aggregate. That's how all financial companies handle $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever -- as a cost of doing business. They simply raise interest rates to raise the $amount needed to cover $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever.

You're right- we do need to take responsibility for our own idiocy.  That being so, I encourage you, and others who have commented on the stupidity of those who fell for the scams (and are kindly warning others of them), to consider your own shortcomings.It's not smart to fall for the scams, and I have not, but I daresay it's also not terribly smart to take out loans at a rate of about 22% interest on each one.  I've done that and so have you.  Every person in our "smart" population, who uses a credit card, agrees to that less than smart deal- over and over and OVER again . . .  Each and every transaction on your CREDIT card is a LOAN taken at a SUPER EXORBITANT rate. How smart is that??The banks take from us as much as they can, within the confines of existing law.  Given the rates we pay, I think they can be expected to do a bit more for us than distributing our loan dollars and keeping track of what we owe them.

Hi Joni,You can get your money back by reporting this incident as fraud to your credit card company. Your credit card company should be able to reimburse you for the charge, they will then do a fee reversal on the business that charged the credit card. However, it may be difficult if the "business" has closed their account with whatever credit card company you charged the fee on. This usually does not work for debit cards.

First let me tell you that you should NEVER Give ANY Personal information to someone calling you. 99% of the time it is a scam. If they tell you they are from a big company ask for the toll free number so you can be sure it really is the company, if they give you a phone number Search the number on Google or Bing or whatever search engine you use. You will probably find that the number is a scam line (like this Skype number is. Then call the ACTUAL number for the Company and report the number that called you along with the toll free number they provided to you.Now the important part: GETTING YOUR MONEY BACK!!Get the Credit Card you used to pay the $199. Call the Customer Service # on the back. Listen to the Options  the Automated Prompts for something like:  'Report Fraudulent Charges'  'Dispute a Transaction'Or just plain ole' Customer Service. Once you have a person from your Credit Card Company on the phone tell them that you have been the victim of a Scam, explain how the person called you claiming to be an Employee of Microsoft (Don't say McHelp cause that sounds like McDonalds went into the Help Desk Business and not even remotely like a real company) telling you that your computer was being hacked. Give them any information you have on the Fake Company including phone numbers and emails/email addresses, websites. Tell them that they gained access to your computer remotely and may have all of your personal and financial information.I am assuming that you fell for the same scam that the others are describing.They will probably transfer you to the Fraud Department and they should close the current credit card and issue you a new card with a new number since crooks have your Credit Card Number. MAKE SURE that the info gets forwarded to the Fraud Dept even if they don't transfer you to them, and make sure you tell them you want the charges reversed.If you let the scam artists access your computer you should change the passwords to any important accounts, security codes too. If you do online Banking call your Bank and explain everything to them so they can change your account numbers & issue you new Credit/Debit Card(s). Call ALL Other Credit/Debit Cards that you have used on your computer and get new cards issued from them too.***VERY IMPORTANT*** Make Sure when Contacting ALL the Financial Institutions that you knowingly gave your information or have the information stored on your Computer for.....MAKE SURE THAT There are NO Other Unauthorized Charges!!!

How/to whom does a person file a complaint? The same thing happened to me in June 2012 and I paid $199.00 for one years service protection plan. I even was given an account number with McHelp, the name of the company. They called me back yesterday stating I was being hacked again and that it was coming out of China. They were suppose to call me back last night at 7 when I was home and had access to my computer. They did not call. I gave them the lanline phone number. the guy just called be pack on my cell and while I am at work. They are supposedly calling back tonight at 8. He had a very heavy Indian accent and the call was very "echoy" and he spoke rapidly and was rude. I told him he needed to speak slower and clearer and not to be rude to me. I tried calling the number and it is a skype number according to the recording I get. How can I get my money back from June 2012. who can we report this scammer to so it stops and is Microsoft aware of this? I have changed my password on several accounts.

Additionally the fines are quite stiff for Co's who get caught violating the list either by mistake or intentionally.Of course there are plenty of stealth companies out there that dial away as they wish.

FYI this is a SKYPE number. It is shared by hundreds if not thousands of Skype callers. Even though Skype is sometimes used by SCAMMERS, such as the cases listed here, it is certainly possible that someone may call you with this number who is TOTALLY LEGIT. So if you have friends or relatives who use Skype, don't be surprised if this phone number shows up in your caller ID.

That number is used by Skype for telephone calls.  It is not tied to a specific person. When you use Skype to make a call, it grabs one of many numbers they have allocated. There is not a good way to trace who actually called you

From what im reading online and in these forums,so many if us are receiving harassing scam calls from generic untraceable Skype numbers, and Skype customer service is being entirely unhelpful and unwilling to do anything about it. This is beyond poor business practice. It is practically harassment being aided by Skype, and i think we need to send Skype a message about their lack of concern for this. If you are getting calls on a regular basis or at all hours of the day and night from numbers like 661-748-0240  then you know what im talking about. Do not call lists do not work. I suggest either filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and/or discontinuing using Skype and using another similar service. If the BBB receives enough complaints they will take action, and there are many alternative services just like Skype who will take your complaints seriously. On top of all this, Microsoft purchased Skype and has implemented the ability to LISTEN IN ON YOUR SKYPE CALLS. There are several articles on Forbes.com about this. Here is a link to one of them: http://www.forbes.com/sites/ericjackson/2012/ ... my-skype-calls/You can just google microsoft listening in on skype to find msny similar stories. That alone should make you want to change services. Here is one link that gives you seversl alternatives to Skype:http://www.zdnet.com/blog/networking/skype-ju ... p-services/2488Skype should be ashamed, embarassed, and face consequences for their poor handling of this. Sure it may be a small hassle to file a BBB complaint or change services, but not as much of one as receiving constant harrassing scam calls and having your calls snooped on! Dont just lie down and let them get away with this. Let your friends and contacts know as well.

I received a call from this number on my cell today... no caller ID other than the number.  I don't ever answer a call from a number I don't recognize: 1) all my friends and business clients have my cell number and I meticulously add their names and numbers to the cell database as I receive them so there is no need for me to answer an unknown; 2) if it is a client or someone that really needs to get to me, my voicemail instructs them to leave a phone number and name so I can verify who they are.  In this instance, it was a client of mine with a 'free' 3-month subscription to Skype and he did leave a message so I know where it came from.  My phone now verbally announces "Skype" when the number dials in.  Thanks to other entries on this site, I will also add the other Skype ID's so I know next time.

An India-based company named DNF Global Solutions.Obviously, this is a well-connected establishment who are "harassing" and scamming people. Read my story and I did file a report. I was locked out of my Hotmail account and I was in this continuous loop. I searched the Internet and came across this company who provided tech support for Hotmail. I contacted them and I was told by this “tech” named Nick Nelson that 227 emails were sent from my computer requesting people’s financial data. I entered a contract with them for 3 years that they would provide all of the tech support for my computer. I later found out that companies like DNF Global Solutions are ripping people off. The name of this company is DNF Global Solutions who are located in India. The “tech” installed this Super AntiSpyware virus, which made my computer slower and infected my computer with viruses; my files were being deleted, uploaded and files were hidden. After I did my research, I learned that was a rogue virus to annoy me and to infect my computer, which it did. The scary part is that they were able to unblock my Hotmail account. I changed all of my passwords. While, I was speaking to them, someone gained access to my online banking account. They became the Administrative of the computer and I have not been able to repair it. I was told to call 866-921-5154 for tech support. They were calling me various phone numbers from 661-748-0244, 661-748-0240, 661-748-0242, 661-380-3000, 661-748-0245, but when I called the numbers back, it did not go through. I thought that was odd. After they failed to answer my questions, I decided to terminate the relationship. I spoke to a manager named Sonya who was shooting the “energy” over the phone. There is no DNF Global Solutions with Mike Hughes as the President. 866-921-5154 is the Toll-free number to an all-inclusive exotic vacation; http://allinclusive-adult-vacations.com/desinaion.htm, as well as, to an India phone number. The phone numbers that the “technicians” were calling from apparently were fraudulent because many people were complaining about how they were unethical telemarketers. My computer has not crashed so the forensics can be obtained off it to get their IP Address so that their illegal activities can be stopped.

Hi there, just want to add some advice. Please think of your computer from now on as your wallet in your purse which you definitely would not hand to a stranger. I wish there was a way to stop these...one thing I like to do is press and hold the "9" button on my phone because it has the most irritating tone!! That usually gets a quick hang-up...

Anyone who contacts you and asks to remotely access your computer is *always* a scammer -- no exceptions. It wouldn't matter if they sent someone to your door dressed in a police uniform holding a "computer crime division" badge -- it's a scam. No company anywhere (or government agency) has the manpower to do personal, one-on-one contact with infected computer owners. Period.

This is NOT Microsoft. We got the same phone call and same number. We called Microsoft about it, and they assured us it's a scam. We gave them the name and and phone number that he called from. That number was 231-629-4824. This guy also had a heavy Indian accent. We told him to call back in half hour. The lady from Microsoft gave us a direct number where we could reach her at, cause she wanted to know if he called back or not. NO information was given to him whatsoever. NOW, the strange part, as I'm reading all these responses, is he DID call back half hour later, BUT the phone number showed Skype user 661-748-0240. So we called the Microsoft lady back, and she said evidently the 2 are connected together in some way. She thanked me and said they will investigate this. Oh yes, check this one out also: we couldn't hardly understand him cause of his accent, and we wanted his name. So he said each letter one by one like A as in apple. That way. WELL, the name spelled out Andrew Austin. Some Indian name, huh.

"Do you realize that her reversed charges end up costing us money in the aggregate?" is only true if the card companies cannot claw money back from the scammer. Clawback is probable in this case IMO because the scam appears to be ongoing. EVERYTHING the credit card companies and the banks do costs us money in the aggregate. That's how all financial companies handle $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever -- as a cost of doing business. They simply raise interest rates to raise the $amount needed to cover $fines, $fraud, court $judgements, $whatever.

You're right- we do need to take responsibility for our own idiocy.  That being so, I encourage you, and others who have commented on the stupidity of those who fell for the scams (and are kindly warning others of them), to consider your own shortcomings.It's not smart to fall for the scams, and I have not, but I daresay it's also not terribly smart to take out loans at a rate of about 22% interest on each one.  I've done that and so have you.  Every person in our "smart" population, who uses a credit card, agrees to that less than smart deal- over and over and OVER again . . .  Each and every transaction on your CREDIT card is a LOAN taken at a SUPER EXORBITANT rate. How smart is that??The banks take from us as much as they can, within the confines of existing law.  Given the rates we pay, I think they can be expected to do a bit more for us than distributing our loan dollars and keeping track of what we owe them.

Hi Joni,You can get your money back by reporting this incident as fraud to your credit card company. Your credit card company should be able to reimburse you for the charge, they will then do a fee reversal on the business that charged the credit card. However, it may be difficult if the "business" has closed their account with whatever credit card company you charged the fee on. This usually does not work for debit cards.

First let me tell you that you should NEVER Give ANY Personal information to someone calling you. 99% of the time it is a scam. If they tell you they are from a big company ask for the toll free number so you can be sure it really is the company, if they give you a phone number Search the number on Google or Bing or whatever search engine you use. You will probably find that the number is a scam line (like this Skype number is. Then call the ACTUAL number for the Company and report the number that called you along with the toll free number they provided to you.Now the important part: GETTING YOUR MONEY BACK!!Get the Credit Card you used to pay the $199. Call the Customer Service # on the back. Listen to the Options  the Automated Prompts for something like:  'Report Fraudulent Charges'  'Dispute a Transaction'Or just plain ole' Customer Service. Once you have a person from your Credit Card Company on the phone tell them that you have been the victim of a Scam, explain how the person called you claiming to be an Employee of Microsoft (Don't say McHelp cause that sounds like McDonalds went into the Help Desk Business and not even remotely like a real company) telling you that your computer was being hacked. Give them any information you have on the Fake Company including phone numbers and emails/email addresses, websites. Tell them that they gained access to your computer remotely and may have all of your personal and financial information.I am assuming that you fell for the same scam that the others are describing.They will probably transfer you to the Fraud Department and they should close the current credit card and issue you a new card with a new number since crooks have your Credit Card Number. MAKE SURE that the info gets forwarded to the Fraud Dept even if they don't transfer you to them, and make sure you tell them you want the charges reversed.If you let the scam artists access your computer you should change the passwords to any important accounts, security codes too. If you do online Banking call your Bank and explain everything to them so they can change your account numbers & issue you new Credit/Debit Card(s). Call ALL Other Credit/Debit Cards that you have used on your computer and get new cards issued from them too.***VERY IMPORTANT*** Make Sure when Contacting ALL the Financial Institutions that you knowingly gave your information or have the information stored on your Computer for.....MAKE SURE THAT There are NO Other Unauthorized Charges!!!

How/to whom does a person file a complaint? The same thing happened to me in June 2012 and I paid $199.00 for one years service protection plan. I even was given an account number with McHelp, the name of the company. They called me back yesterday stating I was being hacked again and that it was coming out of China. They were suppose to call me back last night at 7 when I was home and had access to my computer. They did not call. I gave them the lanline phone number. the guy just called be pack on my cell and while I am at work. They are supposedly calling back tonight at 8. He had a very heavy Indian accent and the call was very "echoy" and he spoke rapidly and was rude. I told him he needed to speak slower and clearer and not to be rude to me. I tried calling the number and it is a skype number according to the recording I get.

This number has called me several times and it says number unavailable when I look at my recent calls. Whomever or whatever it is needs to stop. No one says anything when they call.I called back and it said something about "Google" and please leave a message.Who's going to leave a message when you don't even know who it is. It's an annoyance.

UTC Fire & Security (formerly GE Home Security apparently) http://www.utcfireandsecurity.comhas an employee named Sean Feast, according to the website. I noticed that someone on this forum thought the guy's name is Sean. I sent an email to feedback@fs.utc.com reporting that someone is doing this claiming to be from GE Home Security. I've also reported it to Google Voice.

Got a call from this number - not the first time they've called and been asked to stop. The guy identifies himself as being with GE Home Security. They talked to my husband on their initial call and are scamming to 'give away' a home security system and then charge a huge monthly service fee. Tonight when he called I told him to take me off the no-call list and do not call back and he started saying, "NO NO NO NO" and then hung up. I have filed a complaint on the no-call site.https://www.donotcall.gov/default.aspx

Do not hesitate to report this number to FTC, FCC, and the Do Not Call Registry.   As a former federal law enforcement employee, I assure you reporting it will not simply go into a "black hole" and be ignored.   One or two random reports may not do much but when they receive enough that show a pattern of abuse, a case file wil be opened and an investigation begun, as warranted.

I was also a recent employee of clearbreeze solutions/financial services/vp marketing formally known as di enterprises. This is a big scam. They lie to the employees just as they lie to the customers, the manager sean runs around yelling at people like they're animals. They even scam the employees on their paychecks, one week you'll be getting 10.00/hour the next week everyone will be on commission, even when they had the employees on an hourly rate the check were always less than what they should've been, even after taxes. The company is always changing the name and location. The verification department is a different company than the call center that actually calls the customers, the call center and verification department are underneath two different company names. this is not the only company that these scam artist have, they have car warrrenty place as well. These people are charging customers from 500 to 990 dollars for something they can do for free. BE AWARE OF THEM. IF ANYONE CALLS YOU ASKING YOU IF YOU WOULD LIKE LOWER INTEREST RATES HANG UP. YOU CAN DO IT YOURSELF FOR FREE.

I am a former employee with Clear Breeze Solutions, aka financial services, all they do is talk about how stupid people are for letting them charge their accounts. When I found out that the people I worked for really didn't help people I was insulted. I should have seen the red flags when there was a group interview, no background check or anything.  Even doing the group interview they tell everyone that it is an inbound  call center for existing customers. So really, the employees are getting scammed too.  Then they bring this guy in who shows us his pay stubs that are no less than $1000 and tells everyone how easy the job is; but, even then they don't let you know that he has a higher position than the one you're starting in.  So, the employees are the ones getting scammed initially. Not to mention they are treated like they are in sweat shops and most of the managers treat the employees like trash, taling down to them in front of the entire company, and the male upper management is running around like little dogs in heat. Long story short, I wouldn't give their sorry manipulative a***s the time off day. Not only do they sell you, the consumer, false hope, but they also sell the employees false hope. I didn't even find out the company's real name until I got my first check. DI Enterprises; 4501 Circle 75 Pkwy Ste A-1225; Marietta, GA 30334

Caller ID showed 506-220-42776. (one extra digit)I knew it was scam when recorded message about lowering my credit card rates didn't identify credit card or company name.  When I pressed "1" and got to a live person, she started asking me personal stuff, and instead of answering, I (as did most of you) started asking HER questions about her company. I was sitting at my PC when I got the call, so I asked her for their website and she said I couldn't get that info until I was assigned a "Personal Consultant" and HE would give me that info. I asked if she was "soliciting" and how she got our phone number (to which she replied "from the Credit Bureau")HA ! Anyways, after my answering her questions with MY questions for 7 minutes, and advising her we were on the NC list, she hung up on me!

I readily got the company name from Americare Software Solutions. I suspect that they also solicit under the name of ClearBreeze Solution, who not only refused (most of the time) to give me the company name, but put me on hold for half an hour and then hung up on me. Through process of elimination (and also deduction, I figured out that CleerBreeze and Americare Software Solutions are the same company. I happened to receive mailings from them both. They were close to identical.)Since Clear Breeze Solutions hung up on me, I tried Americare Software Solutions, again. The first time I called, they denied existence of a company by that name. They did however, have Clear Breeze at the number for Americare. After repeated calls, I finally got through to an operator, who admitted that the number was a messenging center for both Americare and Clear Breeze. I tried Americare. They persuaded Washington Mutual to lower the interest rate from 32% to 26 percent. That by itself saved almost four thousand dollars in interest over the life of my credit card. I pointed out to Americare (866) 884-6548) and Clear Breeze (877) 383-7748) that there was a duplicate charge on my credit card. Americare's manager said they would make an adjustment and to go ahead and fill out the paperwork. The debt ($990.00) from Clear Breeze Solutions, was going to be refunded by Americare Software.  This, after I told them that I had contacted the Better Business Bureau, who claimed that Americare went out of business several months ago. Americare's Manager vehemently denied this statement.They told me that the refund would appear on my credit card within a month. It hasn't been a month yet, and I'm still waiting. Meanwhile, I'm going to fill out the paperwork, and see how they do.

Pressing 1 connects you to a live person, who asks all sorts of information about your credit card but refuses to give their phone number or the name of the company. Numerous times, when I asked to speak to a supervisor, the caller hung up.Today I was connected to a supervisor after insisting on it for nearly 10 minutes. She gave me the name of the company as Americare Software Solutions, and told me that the phone number would be on the website.

If so, how?I have been getting calls from  "Account Services" approximately 2-3 times a week for a couple months!  We, too, are on the national "Do Not Call List."All of the numbers they call from are listed as Florida numbers; however, they are conveniently disconnected.  I've seen- 321-235-8331, 305-222-1966, 305-445-8932.  I have reported them on the Do Not Call website, but so far, no one has contacted me.How did you get them to admit they were with Americare?  I called Americare, and they claim I'm not on any of their calling lists.  But they did act suspicious, as they wouldn't give me a number to their enrollment department... they said they could only make outgoing calls.Any advice? I've obviously told them to take me off the list, but it's driving me crazy.  I'm on a mission to bring down these preying idiots. By the way, when I asked if I could verify their return number, they gave me an 800 number to Visa- which of course, said they don't make calls like that.

Ok this number called me 1-201-374-8620, there was a Hindu,ney an Indian on the other line, he said my name was something it was not, been getting that alot lately due to a recycled number from our Phone company. I kept telling him that my name was not blah blah. He then proceeded to tell me that if I did not pay what I owe- 5 thousand bucks, he would get me, he knew where I lived and he would grab me out of my house and arrest me, he also said if I loved my family I would pay immediately, I thought this very funny because I have dealt with these morons before, I simply started shouting "ALAH ALAH ALAH" into the phone, I told him that I already raised money for the "Cause" now speaking with my best Indian accent....I had learned some of their language some years back so I held the phone away from my head and as to yell at someone else in my room started to scream about how this fool thought we would give him more money for the "Cause". They listened straight through, I told him to contact his head man and tell him I was angry, I heard laughing in the background on the phone and he hung up on me lolol I know this is so terrible but after countless spam e-mail from these people and countless calls I had just had enough. Needless to say I sent this number to the fraud unit at our local FBI as a possible terrorist. They'll change their number and continue I am sure but they will never call me again....lolol

Answer the phone when they call and immediately, before they have a chance to say anything tell them "Please be aware that this call is being recorded for legal purposes...." or something to that effect. And then ask if they understand that they are being recorded. I have had great success with this. Write out exactly what you are going to say and have it by the phone so you are comfortable with the whole process. It will be worth the effort.

THIS IS A SCAM! IF YOU ARE CONTACTED BY THEM, CALL YOUR LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT IMMEDIATELY!Here is ec's post with the goods on these crooks:These crooks alternately pose as debt collectors, federal and state law enforcement officers, lawyers and bankers. They use any number of phony official-sounding names such as US National Bank, US Legal Investigation Bureau, Hopkins Law Office, Morgan Associates, White Collar Crime Unit, Department of Crime Prevention, etc.  And, as Alfalfa's message above indicates, consumer credit advocate Bud Hibbs believes this particular scam is just another Ted Ellis Crosby operation. (Previous Crosby scams include Ellis Crosby & Associates, Bass Prelitigation, States Predisposition Services, to name a few.) The Florida Attorney General recently obtained both a $1.3 million judgment against Crosby and a permanent court order forbidding him from ever engaging in debt collections in Florida.Though there have been many 800Notes reports about the US National Bank/White Collar/Affadavit Process scam before Crosby was shut down in Florida, the number of complaints about it skyrocketed *after* Florida shut down Crosby. An interesting coincidence that suggests that this could be another Crosby scam but with a twist: considering the scammers' thick accents and very clumsy English, the calls probably originate offshore.If your attorney wants to look into this, he or she may want to contact the Economic Crimes Division of the Florida Attorney General's office -- http://myfloridalegal.com/contact -- to get whatever information they have on Crosby.One thing for everyone to remember is that anytime someone calls you demanding money to prevent your arrest, it is ALWAYS a scam. No debt collector (let alone criminals posing as debt collectors) has the authority to have anyone arrested for anything. (And it's illegal for them to threaten such a thing.) And since these dirtbags routinely impersonate law enforcement, it's also important to remember that American law enforcement officers aren't in the business of debt collection.  What's more, debt is a civil, not a criminal, matter.The bottom line is, these are criminals trying to steal your money. I suggest you do all the following (most of which you can do online):1) The U.S. Secret Service is responsible for protecting the country's financial infrastructure and payment systems from international and domestic threats. Call or write your local Secret Service field office to alert them to the details of this attempted extortion.

I received an email from a subscription that warned me, people are out there that can call you to try and get your personal information. They have a way to interchange a phone number so that it looks like a company that you do business with (Banks, Cable Service, Credit card businesses, and the list goes on) on your caller ID. They said these people started this from India and they try to phish each country and they are now in the USA. Not only will they try to phish for your personal info, but they may try to keep you on the phone so that you will pay hefty charges which you won't find out about until you get your phone bill. Charges are anywhere from a few dollars a minute to $9.99 a minute and above.So, (800) 266-2278 being a Comcast number that you see on your caller ID, may be another phone number in disguise. Be aware!If you get a call from this number and they are trying to collect money from you, just either tell them that you don't give this info over the phone or just hangup. Then you call  (800) 266-2278 and find out if they just called you for collection of money.You see, it is not a practice on Comcast's part to do a collection call. You just go to their website and get into your account and see what it says: like Account Overdue. Usually, Comcast will mail you by USPS with any warnings such as ACCOUNT OVERDUE PLEASE PAY IT NOW or YOUR SERVICE WILL BE SHUT DOWN IF PAYMENT ISN'T MADE BY a date.

Not a scam, Comcast outsources collections to subcontractors such as ACT, RCH, etc. I used to work for one of them. Employees of these companies use their cell phone to try to reach you, and if they're unsuccessful, they come to your house to try to collect. If they can't get you to pay, they disconnect you. You have to be 60+ days behind for them to do that though. So yeah, I'm sure it was the guys wife, they're calling you to try to get a payment before they come to your house, a lot less work for them if they can get you to pay on the phone. They're paid on commission, it's a percentage of what they collect, and it doesn't matter how they get it from you, their pay is the same, so they'd prefer you to pay over the phone rather than having to hunt you down. About 10% of my work orders paid over the phone when I called them, those were easy money for me, very little work involved, no fuel expense and very little time invested.

Yes, it is a scam.  Tonight (Saturday) I got a call from this number and included  the real COMCAST on 3-way to listen to them trying to get my credit card number to pay.  They claimed that I was in COLLECTIONS, but I'm not.  They also did not have my correct balance.  They claimed to be working out of Lynwood, IL, but the COMCAST AGENT told them that there is no Lynwood Office.  Then, the female got nervous and passed the phone to a man who tried to sound more believable.  We asked why she passed the phone, he claimed that she is his wife.  I asked why she was calling to discuss my account if he's the supposed employee.  Then, he confessed that they are not with COMCAST, even thought they left me a message from 219-314-7788 (probably their cell phone).  After they weren't successful with getting my credit card payment, they referred me to this 800 number.  I googled this number only to find these alerts of scams.  The COMCAST AGENT asked him for his badge #.  He provided a fictitious # and the AGENT advised him that the number doesn't exist in the COMCAST Database.  He named his supervisors.  The COMCAST AGENT researched only to find that there are no such supervisors.  Then, he confessed that they are not with Comcast but with A.C.T. supposedly hired by Comcast to call Customers who are in COLLECTIONS.  The AGENT informed him that I'm not in COLLECTIONS and we asked how he got my #, name, and Account #.  He claimed, from his boss.  The COMCAST SUPERVISORS traced their calla and advised me to disconnect the call.   It is important to follow your gut feeling as I did, when unusual calls come to you.  In this case, their phone number  was unfamiliar and not the numbers that I use to communicate with COMCAST, but somehow they know that I'm a COMCAST CUSTOMER.  I believe that this was an inside job.  Either a current or previous employee has the Account Holders' information..  Make a police report in addition to reporting this to COMCAST and keep the voice mail that they leave for you.

I received an email from a subscription that warned me, people are out there that can call you to try and get your personal information. They have a way to interchange a phone number so that it looks like a company that you do business with (Banks, Cable Service, Credit card businesses, and the list goes on) on your caller ID. They said these people started this from India and they try to phish each country and they are now in the USA. Not only will they try to phish for your personal info, but they may try to keep you on the phone so that you will pay hefty charges which you won't find out about until you get your phone bill. Charges are anywhere from a few dollars a minute to $9.99 a minute and above.So, (800) 266-2278 being a Comcast number that you see on your caller ID, may be another phone number in disguise. Be aware!If you get a call from this number and they are trying to collect money from you, just either tell them that you don't give this info over the phone or just hangup. Then you call  (800) 266-2278 and find out if they just called you for collection of money.You see, it is not a practice on Comcast's part to do a collection call. You just go to their website and get into your account and see what it says: like Account Overdue. Usually, Comcast will mail you by USPS with any warnings such as ACCOUNT OVERDUE PLEASE PAY IT NOW or YOUR SERVICE WILL BE SHUT DOWN IF PAYMENT ISN'T MADE BY a date.

Not a scam, Comcast outsources collections to subcontractors such as ACT, RCH, etc. I used to work for one of them. Employees of these companies use their cell phone to try to reach you, and if they're unsuccessful, they come to your house to try to collect. If they can't get you to pay, they disconnect you. You have to be 60+ days behind for them to do that though. So yeah, I'm sure it was the guys wife, they're calling you to try to get a payment before they come to your house, a lot less work for them if they can get you to pay on the phone. They're paid on commission, it's a percentage of what they collect, and it doesn't matter how they get it from you, their pay is the same, so they'd prefer you to pay over the phone rather than having to hunt you down. About 10% of my work orders paid over the phone when I called them, those were easy money for me, very little work involved, no fuel expense and very little time invested.

Yes, it is a scam.  Tonight (Saturday) I got a call from this number and included  the real COMCAST on 3-way to listen to them trying to get my credit card number to pay.  They claimed that I was in COLLECTIONS, but I'm not.  They also did not have my correct balance.  They claimed to be working out of Lynwood, IL, but the COMCAST AGENT told them that there is no Lynwood Office.  Then, the female got nervous and passed the phone to a man who tried to sound more believable.  We asked why she passed the phone, he claimed that she is his wife.  I asked why she was calling to discuss my account if he's the supposed employee.  Then, he confessed that they are not with COMCAST, even thought they left me a message from 219-314-7788 (probably their cell phone).  After they weren't successful with getting my credit card payment, they referred me to this 800 number.  I googled this number only to find these alerts of scams.  The COMCAST AGENT asked him for his badge #.  He provided a fictitious # and the AGENT advised him that the number doesn't exist in the COMCAST Database.  He named his supervisors.  The COMCAST AGENT researched only to find that there are no such supervisors.  Then, he confessed that they are not with Comcast but with A.C.T. supposedly hired by Comcast to call Customers who are in COLLECTIONS.  The AGENT informed him that I'm not in COLLECTIONS and we asked how he got my #, name, and Account #.  He claimed, from his boss.  The COMCAST SUPERVISORS traced their calla and advised me to disconnect the call.   It is important to follow your gut feeling as I did, when unusual calls come to you.  In this case, their phone number  was unfamiliar and not the numbers that I use to communicate with COMCAST, but somehow they know that I'm a COMCAST CUSTOMER.  I believe that this was an inside job.  Either a current or previous employee has the Account Holders' information..  Make a police report in addition to reporting this to COMCAST and keep the voice mail that they leave for you.

Yes it is comcast, but they can be calling for a number of reasons. It is an automated line and when I was called it was due to an outage in the area and I requested the call, but I'm sure they use that automated system for billing and reminders and messages to customers. I wasn't able to answer, but did get a message that service had been restored from the mass outage courtesy call.

I believe it to be a confirmation of install as well, but it is definitely Comcast. They called after I moved, but have yet to change the address. It works at my new current address so I've waited to change it.  Apparently the new residents can't get their internet until I change my service address and that's, probably, what they're calling about.

Well, regardless of your complaints millions of people use any phone they want and their cable does work.  To say they "never work" is specific to you and in no way sums up the track record or service of the company as a whole. What any of that has to do with a number calling you is beyond your readers of this reply.  Irrelevant and useless banter against a company that didn't make you happy. Go to a complaint board if you expect anything to change.

I agree.It is Comcast calling 5 to 8 times a day and hanging up.I don,t owe them money but I do have a Comcast phone which by the way never works.I get the silence too!My Comcast cable never works either.I have two brand new name brand T.V.,s and have been through 6 $80.00 phones.The last Comcast tech to come out here told me that was only one brand of phone their service would work with.Makes me wonder if Comcast is taking kickbacks?When I complained about the hangups,I was told that I could trace them and report the harrassment to my local police.Only problem was-from then on out the calls came as unknown caller so they could not be traced!They had always shown on the caller ID as 1 800 266 2278.

Caller IDs can be spoofed by people perpetrating fraud. The caller ID # is not necessarily associated with the phone number that called you.  Any sophisticated scammer with a phone system can send any number they want as the caller ID #.

You are right it is not a comcast call, it is a credit card scam! They call you and then they will text you from a 5016232138 and the message say's; "Mastercard ALERT - CARD LOCKED PLEASE CALL 501 623 2128"  Report it to your local police department and they will do a reverse number look-up and forward it to the FBI, since they are commiting this across state lines for fraud and attempted identity theft!
