Same as comments above. Hang up as soon as we answer.
This sounds like piracy -- "unregulated service" scammers, who get you to sign up for some bogus "service." Incredibly, they can actually use your phone company's lines AND the billing process to "get you" for a few dollars or cents a month until their scam is blown. Using the phone company lines is not actually illegal, but in doing so, they prey on phone companies' customers which is of course fraud. As I understand it, if your phone company is in a period of change or turnover, these scammers can swoop in and take advantage while their regulatory rules are in limbo. It's only speculation, but I wonder if the recent Homeland Security lawsuits against certain phone companies (like mine: Qwest) have anything to do with it. ALSO -- I talked to ALLSEC once too, and the young person who talked to me SLIPPED with his language and said "Have you been sent over to billing?" and I caught it, and said, "Billing?? I haven't agreed to buy anything!" and the kid was flustered and said, "Oh, I mean our information center," or something like that. DON'T LET THEM TALK YOU INTO ANYTHING.
I, too, got calls from this phone number continuously but they stopped a few weeks ago. It seems that they have started up again. I mentioned it to my brother, a criminal investigator. He suggested I google the number to see if I could find out who owns the number. Thank you for your comments because I am glad it's just a telemarketing company. I am extremely unhappy that my AT&T business phone number is now in an offshore database.
I receive telephone calls from this number every 30 min and when I answer no one is on the line. It's starting to get annoyning
Actually talked to one of these callers once... They asked for the person who handles the AT&T bill. I asked if they were with AT&T, and they went into something about a multi-level telephone service etc. blah blah, and I hung up. We get a call every day now with just silence on the other end; 2 weeks now.
Just like everyone else, I have received several calls in the last few days. No one is on the other end of the line. This happened to me months ago and stopped but it has re-started.
They have called everyday work day for the last 2 weeks, no one answers when I pick up, they don;t answer when I call back.
This is the most annoying call I get EVERY DAY for the past three weeks!Never anyone there and not hanging up either. I just pick it up and put it hang up now.
called me three times today 8:15 am, 11 am and 4:20 pm. all three i told to take me off and never call again. don't answer if they call
Get a call from them a couple times a week. Someone who can't speak clear english always asks for who is in charge of our telephone account. About a year ago, I fell for a scam that began like that and they took over our phone bill. Took weeks to get them off our account and get us back to normal. Don't even bother talking to them, if you see the number, pick up and hang up.
These clowns also call me on a daily basis, caller ID says Newark, NJ 201-520-9286. No one answers, then they hang up. I think I've gotten them on the phone on prior occasions and asked to be removed from their call list; guess they are hoping someone else will pick up the phone.
I never answered the phone. This number I listed shows up on caller ID 3-4 times daily on weekdays.
Repeated calls. Assumed telemarketing. No message. No answer on call back.
I have received numerous calls from this number and it comes up as ALLSEC. These calls have been over the last several days and at least six times today. I told the same guy over and over I am on the no call list and he ignores me or acts like he has no idea what I'm talking about.
I have been getting several dead air calls for the past few days. Last night around quitting time (5:00pm) I got one that talked to me. They ask if they could speak to the person that handles our Qwest account. I told them no and hung up. They called back this morning and ask the same thing and I told them, this call was no authorised by Qwest and I was not going to talk to them and hung up. We will see how many more times they call. I also looked the company up on the internet and it has something to do with Hidu's and East Indian people. "providing quality relationships" is the message on the web sight.
Like the others listed, I have received dozens of dead air calls. I even tried staying on to get someone to talk to me. Finally, I called them and inquired about the reason for their calls. The woman I spoke to spoke very softly in English I could barely make out. I asked them to remove my organization from their call list and informed them that they were wasting my company time and that I frankly, found their tactics quite rude and unprofessional. I'm interested to see if the calls stop or not. BTW, we are registered on the do not call list and have been since it began. Next: contact the FCC.
I get dead air calls like this all the time and it is really starting to make me mad. Has anyone had any success in having these calls stopped after notifying them?
Received multiple dead air calls. When calling back, I normally get a busy signal. Got through today and asked them to take my numbers off their list. Person who answered said it would take 24 hours. We'll see.
frequent calls. Usually no response on their end. Called back once and a woman answered. Today I will call again and advise them to take me off their call list. FCC allows you to sue them if they call again.10/05/07 Done
Twelve calls in eight days. I never answer, but they don't give up, either.
I work at Cincinnati Bell and had a call from a customer who received a call from this number. They claimed they were from Cincinnati Bell. That is not true. This is a telemarketer located out of New Jersey
Call several times a day and never leave message. Have quit answering when # appears
Received 6 dead air calls today and finally stayed on the last one to see who it was. Girl said she was Jessica from ATT. (Jessica does not sound like an East Indian name) When I pushed she finally said she was from Reduced Rate Long Distance and refused to give me her phone number. When I hung up, I star 69'ed and got the number. When Googled, this came up. I tried to call ATT Customer Service (NOT!!!) and the girl there really didn't care, but said she took the infomation. I'll also report this to the FCC.
Got a call today from the same number and no one answer, i been getting calls on who handles our long distance, is anoying, how many times must we say STOP CALLING :)
We receive calls every day at least once from someone asking if we receive a notice in last long distance bill from Qwest and if we want to change our plan.
Called 8/23 in the am was dead air and hung up. Call right back and the person on the other end wanted to talk to the person in charge of the ATT/Southwestern account. We don't have either and told them not to call back. The same person called back today 8/24 and told them we are on do not call list and not to call back. I guess well see tomorrow what happens.
Several dead-air calls a day. Called the number and it turned out to be a telemarketer. Told them to take me off the list.
no one on other end of line..called # back told them to take my # off list they said they wouldStill get 2 to 5 calls from them a day
