multiple calls...asked not to call my number again
This number is constantly calling me about some scam their running about making blogs for businesses. It's supossed to be a 'job' but they keep trying to get my debit card number. I ask them "why would I pay for a job?" and they give me some crap about upkeep. I told them "I'm not interested", yet they keep calling. I have them listed in my phonemy phone as "DON'T ANSWER".
This number calls so many times a day,..no voicemail no anything....its very annoying.
I kept getting calls during the day and I teach school. I tried calling them back many times and never got a reply. I too got tangled up with a free grant money bunch (who have never refunded my money when I returned their product - unopened). If I may warn everyone NEVER get involved with "Free Grant Money". I don't care how legitimate they may sound - THEY ARE NOT! I got duped by Chris Johnson scam!
This number calls me up to five times a day with no voice mail and even when I answer there is no one there. How do I get these calls to stop?
I keep getting phone calls from this number on my cell phone and when answer no one is there. zthey hang up
Call repeatedly but hang up after a couple of rings..no message..then they call again later with same series of events
CALLS TWO ARE THREE TIMES A DAY. NEVER LEAVES A MESSAGE ARE WHO THEY ARE.
Call daiy before 8am. Never leaves message.
I think this is related to Acai Berry calls. Same area code. I just ignore without answering. They had stopped calling for awhile and just recently started up again. It's either them, or someone they turned the calls over to.
please report this number and block them from bothing people!!! especially at 2AM calling 4 times!!!!!!
I started receiving these calls also and saw all the complaints and futility of everyone. I took another approach when they called. I acted happy to receive the call and "played" along. When they asked for my credit card number I explained that I didn't have any and asked them to bill me. They asked me to ask a friend or family and I said I didn't have any but I promised to pay them. They said they couldn't do that and would let me know if things changed. Maybe not the "right" way for this to stop but it did. Haven't gotten a phone call since.
This number calls at all times of the day and night. This is disruptive, an invasion of privacy, and needs to STOP!
they call every 20 minutes for about 5 hours a day.
Called every half an hour for the last 3 days through 6 PM. We are on both the federal and state no call list and had our number changed 2 months ago. What's up with this?
calls house phone and line goes busy no message Tried calling and get a busy signal.
Repetitive phone calls from this and related numbers with no answer when the call is answered. Happens all hours of the day.
Don't know who is calling, however they continue to call.
I have registered my number on a do not call list.
This number called me 6 times in a short period of time. We are on the Federal no-call list, so it would be interesting to see how they got our number!
never asked or wanted a grant did not sign up for one. Have no idea how they got my number.
The above number has called my cell phone all hours of the day and night, no one will answer when I answer the call and upon returning the call it says that all ciruts are busy. THis is a buch of crap my number is on the do not call list how are they getting my number and how can I make them stop calling.
repeated calls - no message. the calls started early this morning - and have continued through the afternoon also from this number:
keeps calling my phone over and over again and when i answer they hang up. STOP CALLING
Called 3 times in 2 hours. when I picked up there was no response and when I asked them to stop calling they refused
Like every one else they keep calling me since 2/5/09 but with all the information on this site, the call was registered on the do not call registrey and they can call untill 2/8/09 after that they will be in trouble. just ingnore them, and again call them back press 2 for take me off your call list and poof they are gone
keeps calling my cell 4 times today...started last night. I too called back and followed the directions to be removed seems they are calling me MORE!!
i finally got to talk to someone!!! i was tired of picking up 10 calls a day and getting hung up on. so i picked up this time and yelled "[email protected]$* u" into the phone. all of a sudden, someone said "hello" so i said "hello" and she introduced herself as a name i can't even begin to pronounce or spell, and said she was from "Grant Instructor". i have no idea what that is, so i told her to take me off the call list and do not call me again. hopefully that will work. so you have to somehow get someone on the phone when they call. good luck!
They have called three times. I left a message on the answering service. I missed the calls again. They never leave a message. How am I supposed to know if this is a crank or real call?
how can i get these calls to stop? and how did they get my number?
OMG! They've just started calling me too. Seriously if anyone one has a legit solution please post it here!!
I get calls from this number every day, several times a day. Each time they call it appears to be from a different state but the number is the same. My caller ID shows the phone number as 201-918-4831 but the state will be different each time. Florida, Oklahoma, Pensylvaina, etc. but the same number. They never say anything and when I try to call them back it is a recording that says, "You have reached the service department, if you wish to speak with a representive press 1...", then it says if you wish to be removed from the calling list press another number and enter your phone number. After you do that you get a recording that says you have been removed from our calling list. But that is not true, they still keep calling. I want this to stop! I don't know who it is and they never say anything at all. They just hold the phone and then hang up! Beware!
This is a telemarketer call center. They are are used by different entities and are usually staffed by 'work at home' employees. It is not proved but suspected that different scams are originating here.
JUST AS IN ALL OTHER COMPLAINTS, KEEPS CALL CELL PHONE. I DID DO THE TAKE ME OFF THE LIST OPTION, BUT DIDN'T WORK SO FAR. PAIN IN THE A**!!!!!!
Called me 5 times this morning
Keeps calling my cell. Won't stop. Press to take my number off of calling list. Keep calling. Getting ticked off here.
I WAS TOLD THAT THIS NUMBER IS HIRED BY CELL PHONE COMPANIES JUST TO CALL AND RUN UP YOUR MINUTES. THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO ACT ON THIS QUICKLY. CALL YOU LOCAL SENATOR TO SEE IF THEY CAN HELP.
This number [(201) 918-4831] has been calling me for 2 days non stop. When I answer no one is on the line and when I don't answer they do not leave a message. I filed with the government to try to handle the situation. Maybe you all should go through your local government to do the same.
This number has called my cell phone 18 times in the past 3 hours. How do we get this to stop? I've tried their "do not call" program and the crap continues. Ughhh!
Is calling often, won't leave a message. Lost count on the number of calls just in the last hour (more than 15 calls).
I have been getting call after call from this number, once I answer there is no one on the other end. I am very frustrated!!! please advise what can I do!!!!! I dont want to change my number because of the idiot who is calling..
2/5/09 7:30-7:50pm California
Tonight I have received 5 calls from this number within approximately 20 minutes. 3 hang ups as I answered and twice an Indian sounding woman who tried to tell me I had 'signed up' for this information. I informed her I did not and that I wanted her to STOP CALLING MY HOME. Within minutes she called back. I became really irritated and told her I was 'reporting' the caller and to STOP CALLING.
Caller shows as "Unknown Caller". Gotten 5 calls from this number in the last hour. Quite annoying. Going to try to answer before the call is dropped, get information, tell them not to call, and wait for another couple calls.
Every call after then, minus one screwup call can get you $500.
Pain in the ****. They keep calling.
Constantly calling my cell every 30 minutes every night
These people are starting to **** me off.
This number has called me about every 30 minutes for the last 6 hours. They need to stop now or I will seek legal remedy.
OH MY GOSH....I've received 6 calls on my cell from this number since 12:30pm today! They won't leave me alone..uggh!!
They keep calling my cell phone. They hang up before I can answer it. It is getting very anoying.
it calls and calls and when i pick up it just hangs up.
calls several times a day and never leaves a message.
I provided my phone number for some of the grant money finders that are out there right now...big mistake...I didn't purchase any of their services because they charge you $60 after a week or so if you do not cancel. Annoying.
I just started receiving these calls this afternoon and I have alread gotten 6 of them! It is getting ridiculous!
This is the third time they have called, and disconnected on the third ring, before the
answering machine can kick on.
Wish they'd either stop calling....as we speak it is ringing from them again!!!..OR
have the guts to leave a message. Would prefer they stop calling!! I'm in Wisconsin!!!!!
wow, these folks must be busy today! just googled the number and found this site. i've received five calls today. no message left, though, and i generally don't answer numbers i don't recognize.
filled up my caller ID and answering machine... call all day long
Called twice, kept saying my name into the phone, hoping I would pick up,rather than leaving a message. Ignorant
Has called my house phone about 7 times already today.. I haven't picked up, but they don't even leave messages. The last call was about 8pm. This is RIDICULOUS.
This number has called my phone 3 times just in this afternoon of today the 5th of February. When I answer it disconnects me, when I try to call back it disconnects me. There is no way to be able to let these people know not to call. I think this number should be disconnected to stop calling people.
Received a call from this unknown number. Wanting to block caller.
no message left and they are only calling my cell phone. And when i try to call back there is no answer.
These people are calling from one of these websites. It's unclear whether or not you have to have registered on the site (and that's how they got your #) or if they are performing some kind of a reverse look-up to see who you are based on your IP Address.
I never registered with their site, but I did click on a Google-Text-Ad that took me to their site. Then I started to recieve telephone calls from them.
Either way, that's who these people are. Telemarketers for a weight-loss and another kind of health-food type of Product.
This guy said he was calling with the acai berry diet. wants to sell me the vitamins to lose weight. knew my first name.
calls several times a day and if I answer no one says anything
they called me a bunch of times today. i finally picked up. it took a few seconds but finally someone answered and they knew my name. this is my cell phone mind you. i don't know how they know me.
They keep calling but no one is there.
**** me off
They have called me 5 times in one day and whenever I answer the call drops.
They've called me 6 times today and hang up.
calles all day long. no one there.
i get several calls a day and they hang up
I'm on the do not call list, and the continuously call me all day...i want it stopped...
Constant call and hang up.
I have gotten several calls from these folks about Grants. I requested a CD online now I am getting bombarded with calls everyday. Please remove me from there list.
This number has called me repeatedly today not leaving me a message and hanging up after the third ring
don't know who it is and they called me
They call all day long. I answer no one says anything. I want the calls stopped.
every 2 hours I receive a call from this number. I picked up the last time and there was no one there. I called the number back and all it said was "thank you for calling customer service" and gave me options to hit buttons to either leave a message or to be put on their do not call list. It never even said a company name and customer service was never available (tried 4 times in a row sent me straight to a voicemail with no name and I left messages with noise, since that is all they left me)
Hangs up. Never leaves a message.
I just recieved three calls this morning. I just called them back and they have now added an automated respond and if you go through it there is an option, number 2, where you can delete you number off of there list. It takes 2 seconds and the annoyance is gone.
This number has called four times this morning. The first time a women with a thick accent said something that could not be understood and the other times nobody is on the line.
I do not know why they keep calling????????????
called 10 times and hung up in the last 2 days make them stop!
THIS NUMBER CONTINUES TO CALL MY PHONE PLEASE MAKE THEM STOP. I DONT UNDERSTAND HOW AFTER SO MANY COMPLAINTS THIS CONTINUES TO HAPPEN.
I received a call from this number and looked up a reverse number on white pages. Its a number calling from Montgomery Street in New Jersey. If you call the number back and then wait long enough it will ask if you wish to be taken off of their call list. I think you press 2 to be taken off. Its just solicitors calling. If you ever see a number you dont recognize and you answer and they ask for you, just tell them they have the wrong number. They usually never call back. It shuts them up quick. Also you can register at the national do not call list.
That is the link above just copy and paste into your browser. Once you have been registered with them for 30 days, you can start adding numbers that you don't want to call you. Hope this helps. :)
If you have signed up for any of the "free" grant money that has been offered lately, that is why you are getting these calls. I don't know why they have a DNC option if they are just going to ingnore it, but I won't be answering their calls. It's just annoying.
has called my cell several times but i do not answer
i just want to know who it is. i called the number back and was on hold for 30+minutes.
i put the wrong number in the above message--supposed to be 2019184831
can they stop calling im not intrested ughhhh
201-918-4831. 5 calls 2 day so far. Last time I answered it, no one there, sat on there for about 10 seconds after saying hello. I called the number back, and it went instantly to a message saying "thank you for calling customer service" (no company name) it was a NJ accented woman. I had looked the number up in MSN.com reverse look up and the number is registarted to somewhere in SanAntonio TX. Not NJ. It did give the option to put yourself on their do not call list. Not sure if I want to do this because I have my doubt that it will stop the calls. If they continue I will have to give that a shot.
I HAVE HAD 15 CALLS IN THE LAST 2 DAYS! I WORK NIGHTS AND THEY START WITH THE CALLING AT 9AM! WHAT THE HELL IM GOING TO CALL THEM 2 MARA MORNING AND GIVE THEM A WORD OR 2!
these ppl keep calling 5 times when i was at work and 3 times in the evening. wth!
Continually calling and hang up. I've had 5 calls in the last 2 days, two of them in the last hour.
They keep calling me and not leaving a message. If they don't want to leave a message, then don't call me. I know that when I get a voicemail-- I leave a message everytime, whether it be personal or business. Good Luck and hopefully you will leave a message next time.
Calls every half hour and noone is there when I answer. I call back and get put on their no call list and they keep calling. I'm about ready to drive to new lersey and take care of them
i push 1 and it's busy????????????No name of company????????????Just customer service department????????FOR WHO???????
what the heck is this about????????????????????????
keeps callin, soon to be traced..
Calls my home number several times a day without leaving a message. Pretty stupid if you ask me...!!!
This business has called my residence in upwards of 20+ times per day. Over one week ago I called this number to opt out of these calls. However I continued to receive these calls, so I called to opt out again, and within 15 minutes another call came from this number. I did answer the phone in order to make it perfectly clear they were in violation by calling since I have chosen to opt out from these calls and I have done this several times then I proceeded to hang up the phone.
Called me 5 times in the last hour.
Calls my cell phone 3-4 times per day and will not leave a message. Rather pathetic telemarketing.
I answer the cell phone and get messages...press 1 to talk with a service rep (they are always busy) and press 2 to get on a "no-call" list. It doesn't help...they still call!
I have been getting call for 2 days and I called the number and did the do not call list thing also and they continue to call. I did the speak to a rep number and keep getting a the station you are calling is busy message. I do not know who they are.
Continually calling. I am on "do not call registration". These people don't say who they are, just keep calling.
i called the number back. an automated machine answered. did not say who the company was and asked if i wanted to be added to their no-call list so i did that and 5 minutes later they called again!
Started getting calls on my cell phone since Feb. 2. I have recieved aprox. 18 calls w/ no message.
I've received calls from this number for the past week. It calls throughtout the day. Needs to stop!
They called 10 times a day for the last 3 days. They do not leave a message. The calls start from 7am until 11:30 pm.
Man with Asian accent said his name is Gerald Anderson calling about my recent online inquiry regarding govt grants. I said I was not really interested but he was insistent in getting my debit/credit card info so he can send me the packet. It is obviously a scam so hang up!
Constantly calling my cell number!
Constantly calling, have no idea who it is!
Don't know who you are stop calling!!!!
201-918-4831....QUIT CALLING ME!! THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE! YOU WILL BE PUNISHED!!!!
They call and never say anything or never leave a message on the machine. It is getting really old!!!
This person(s) calls my cell phone everyday, and calls about 10-12 times a day. There are ways to find where this is coming from, and I am going to find out where it is coming from because, it is to the point where they now have a message saying, "type in your number and it will be on a do not call list", and that is CRAP. THEY STILL CALL. I AM GONNA GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS.
would just like to know who is calling me
Continualy calls and noone is there
Keep getting phones calls from this number. If I want to talk to them, I will call them.
calls 4 to 5 times a day, within seconds apart.
when I answer they never say a thing.
This nunmber has called me 7 times in the last hour. This is due to an onsite inquiry regarding Federal gov grants. Do not respond to it. This number keeps calling. I've called my cell phone company and they can't block the number. Which is strange as you use been able to block the numbers.
A girl with a Asian accent called saying she was doing a gov survey. I hung up the phone.
Called every hour on the hour for 2 days and then some IN BETWEEN. It was like there was a deadline to meet. I never answered it. Never left a message! This is just not right!
Does not leave message...called 4 times in one hour.
keeps calling and hanging up
I received a call from the number above. A lady talk like a allion. Hard to understand her telling me I quiafiy for
$60,000. That I give her the card number that she will send a package out. I did give her my card number. I thought there is something fishy about this so I called Credit to verify if this a scam it is a scam. So I have my card canceled to have a new one made up. This is a scam Do not fall for it.
All I know is theys people are like a dog chaceing a bone.
They trick you into giving your phone number on their website with promises of grants. But you have to pay them to get the info once you're sucked in. Just another unethical company jumping on the back on those that need help the most, aka jerks.
I explained that I will not give my Visa over the phone and asked to be taken off the list. I have received 3 more phone calls from this company today every 10-15 minutes on my cell phone. Yikes
Ive spoke to them repeatedly and told them to take me off their list and they continue to call about every 5 minutes! Theyre driving me crazy and almost have me to the point of changing my number!
Just say all the other people who have gotten calls from this number. It just started for me today. Decided to file a complaint with the do not call registry. We'll see if they try calling again.
WEll 201-918-4831 calls and hangs up ...I called back and it says if you will like to speak to a customer service rep press one..if you like to remove your number from our data base press 2 ...I pressed one and was on hold for ever...I would file a police report in Jersey City, NJ....ASAP!!!!
Called 9 times
They keep calling from this number, but no one ever says Hello. When trying to call back, the phone simply rings.
Calls come in about 6-12 times a day. Wish they would stop calling. Don't know them and don't want to know them.
stop calling me!!!
I was not home, but this call shows up on my caller ID from Weehawkin, NJ. I didn't know if someone I know was in trouble. I had 7 missed calls no more than 1 hour apart. I called the number back and the recording says there is no one at that extension.
I left a complaint a few mins. ago. I did a little more checking and came up with this cell provider ( new cingular wireless.pcs,llc.)in Jersey city New Jersey. I could not come up with a name . I think this is a common crook rather than a telemarketer !!!
I have been on the Do not Call list and these people just don't care that they use up my cell phone time. It is crazy.
On 1/23/2009 I BEGAN RECIEVING CALLS FROMM THIS # . Atleast 50 calls . IT is contiuing as of 1/27/2009 . I called my service provider but they say there is no way to block the # .When I try 2 call it back it says it is dissconnected or not in service . Do i have any way 2 contact ?
Never leaves a message and has called 3 times in the last 30min. As well as other days!
received several calls from this land line and they never leave a message. Just more freaken BS calling from New Jersey or New York!
I get calls from this # every 5 minutes starting at 8 o'clock in the morning. How can I stop them? Short of disconnecting my phone..
I have received 10 calls from this number. They hang up after the first ring and if I pick up in time, there is a beep sound.
I have recived over 20 calls in the last few days. I have this phone for medical reasons and every time they call my number I lose time off my phone. I would like it to stop.
We keep getting calls from
they keep calling me even though i told them to stop.
Keeps calling non-stop. No person on the other line. Does not answer when I call them back. Called 20 times in a few hour span.
This number calls me constantly!!!! I don't owe any debt so i cannot imagine it being a collector- The number calls me at all hours and days... No one is ever on the other end of the line
This number called me at 11.53 pm on tuesday night. This is getting rediculous
I have picked up a few times and told them not to call me but with no success
I did not answer the first day because I did not know the number and I was at work. They started about 11:00 am and continued till 7:00 pm every 15 to 30 minutes. They started again on Saturday at 8:00 am again and they called every 10 minutes until I finally answered at around 10:00 am they said they were some government grant service when I told them how anoyed I was with how often they called they said the caller is an automatic dialer. I told them to take me off their list. It is now Monday and they have called twice again in 1 hour. When I answered on the second call they hung up.
called 3 times today. told third time not to call back.
Numbers of this source keep calling then hanging up on me . I say hello and they don't say anything .
I don't know who this caller is and want them to stop calling me.
continuosly calling, pick no answer, this annoying, what the calls to stop.
They just called me telling the same thing they told everyone else. i couldnt even understand the lady. i told them to take me off their list but from the looks of things it wont work.lol
I have received 23 calls in the last 9 hours from this number. The first time at 7:30am this morning, I answered, and they said "You filled out a form on the internet to receive grant information, we'd like to send you a CD for only $2.95 ." I told them to remove me from their list and place me on their DNC list.
12 minutes later, they called again, different operator, and I told them AGAIN to remove me from their list and place me on their DNC list.
Again, at 831am, they called back - and I AGAIN told them to place me on their DNC list.
At 915 am the called again, and all calls from then until now I have attempted to answer, only to be met with silence.
i noticed the same number and they tried to call me but i was on the phone with someone else and that person did not leave a message at all
They have been calling for the last week, as many as 11 times in one day... I've answered the call a few times, yet no one will be on the line. This should not be allowed! I'm going to file a complaint with GTE and get it (the number)blocked.
These people are out of control. They call 6 to 8 times a day. Sometimes my phone will only ring one time and they hang up and other times when I answer all you here is a noise of some sort and then silence. This has to stop. I am call my local police department to see if they can help me with these anoying calls from this number.
The constant calls and robot messages for some guy I have never met has to stop. I told these people he doesn't live at my house, I have no idea who he is, then sometimes I yell, now I just hang up and I had to turn my ringer off. This has to be illegal.
they call once every hour!
They called repeatedly, I answer the phone and hear background music, no voices.
I have no idea who keeps calling me from this number, but I never answer and they never leave a msg. I get calls from this number 3 times a day. Whenever I call back there is a msg. saying that the person left the desk. Very strange. I think it might be a telemarketer.
Telling me I they have a grant waiting for me, have no idea what they are talking about.
i tried calling the customer service number listed in one of the complaints and the gentleman told me that he could not make them stop calling me, that he was in nevada and they are in new jersey and that he didn't have a phone number for them.. that he is just a answering service or that he cancels accounts after people realize they are being charged 50 bucks a month. He said to just wait until they called again and ask to speak to a supervisor. How can i do that when noone is there when i pick up the call. I hate this and want to go to new jersey and tell them in person!!
offering gov't grant and wanted 2.95 shipping. i asked for address to send check, they only took debit/credit cards. sounds like a scam. after i said no, the number called back 3 times the next day. i answered and noone said anything. how annoying.
they are calling me like 5-6 times a day.
i've received 2 calls already from this number. No name, n doesn't go 2 vm. My number is on the Do Not Call List, n yet, i still get these kinds of calls!!!
Received about 20 calls today, sometimes 3 in a row, but not in regular intervals
Calling every 30 minutes and no one answers. This went on for several hours
calls every day and does not leave a message 2576
calls from diffrent states but is same person caling about grants.calling in exxcess on 10 times a day.
They keep calling and are annoying me to death. If this continues I would like to report it...but to who?
The same number called me like seven times in one day. I didn't answer because I didn't recognize it.
How can I get these to stop? They started calling 3 days ago and call multiple times each day.
Annoying! Everyday! 5 times today!
Recevied this call went to voicemail all i heard was like noise in the background and females speaking in asian or some other language. Last thing i heard was someone say Mommie no answer and it hung up, but i received this call number about 8 times every 8 to 10 min as a missed call.
They ask for someone who doesn't live at our address. When told they have the wrong number they start into their BS. They've called the past 2 days.
This number has been calling me many times since new year.
This number has been ringing my phone since 1/20/09 12times.
The company is a grant counciling service. They want to mail you information about grants and probably got your number when you visited one of their websites. Even if you didn't submit your information, they captured your number when you called them. Basically I told the caller I didn't want the information and I wanted the calls to stop. We'll see if that works.
constant missed calls from this person
Calls 2-4 times a day I answer she tells me she wants to send me info. on government grants all i need to do is pay shipping and handling fees of $2.95 with my credit card or debit. I told her I can't she still insist, tells me she could place a 3 way call to a friend or family member to have them use there card to pay I say no I wont do that either so I ask if I could mail it to her she says no and hangs up then calls me back again the next day or even an hour later so I tell her not to call me back but she still does anyway. Seems like who ever it is, is desperate to get a credit card number.
i'm on the do not call list and they are calling. google the number and, you will find many complaints.
Caller began calling at about 8:00 AM (I work nights) and calls during peak time on my Cell Phone. I am on the national do not call list and do not appreciate the interruption and possible billing for minutes. Never leaves a message. Maybe the Do not call registry should issue one of their $25000 fines in this case reading all the complaints here
have called over and over again at times that are all over the place even late at night
Caller starts calling at 8 am and calls all day long until 9 pm. Never leaves a message. I just need it to stop. They even call all weekend long!
Calls my cell at least 4 times a day. Does not leave a message
Someone keeps calling from this same number, I pressed 2 to get off the list, I hope it works!
multiple calls to my cell phone; each time I answer, no one is there. VERY bothersome and annoying!
these people or what ever it is keep calling it only rings 2 times when i do finally answer i will tell them that i am going to contact the FBI and file a compliant then I will actually call and file a complainant sens it sounds like someone impersonating a government place or person this is a big NO NO for them to be doing and I hope they fry when they get cout
This is an very crazy company they will start calling you at 7:00 am. Please watch out for this company 201-918-4831 they can't help you get no grant because you don't pay for grants they are free and this company wants you to give them money. Don't respond
Call several times a day for last couple of weeks. I do not answer after seeing it is apparently a telemarketer for fed. grants. Does it do any good to report to a site like this (can they do anything about it if they get enough complaints)?
I have had enough and going to the police this afternoon to have then look into it more. I think we all should do this and maybe the more people going to the police in different areas will help bring an end to this even faster.

they need to stop calling my cell phone used for medical use only pease stop call me
Keeps calling up to 20-25 times a day, Have no idea who it is. Someone should be able to put a stop to this. They will call, hang up and call right back. We do not answer either, after looking at caller ID. This is enough to drive a sane person crazy.
This number keeps calling my home and not leaving a message. I do not recognize the number on caller ID so I do not pick up and therefore have no further info.
I too keep getting phone calls from this phone number. It has been going on for the past 3 days and I am up to 15-20 call so far. I answered the first 3 times and now I just let it ring and hope they will go away... yeah no luck! I have called AT&T to see if they can block the phone number but they say they can't and that if I want to I can buy their parental control feature for $5 a month and restrict certain numbers from coming and going or I can change my phone number. Well neither of those options will fly and if I took one of them then isn't the the same as their jerk offs winning?!?
Do anyone have a solutions to get them to stop calling? Please help. My next step is going to the police.
I keep getting phone calls from
This phone number keeps on calling my cellphone continiously 6x every hour today for 3 consecutive hours! How can I block this number from calling my cellphone?
Okay, so get this...I did receive another call about 15 minutes later (see earlier post). Same woman, new name. I told her that I was Linda and that I had received the packet of info that they had sent, but that I was disappointed and wanted her to credit my credit card with the amount that I had paid. She was stunned and stumped. She gave me the number for Customer Service-
I get about six calls on my phone every other day. I hate it! I understand if I might have looked at their website (maybe) but that's no reason for me to be bothered daily with annoying calls. I never have any messages so I know it's probably a telemarketer who doesn't care if I pick up or not. Please stop now.
calls 10 - 20 times a day
no-one there when phone aswered
Just like everyone else I keep getting called by this number. They called me about 10 times today alone.
Just received my 6th call of the evening from these people. They call every 30 minutes in the evening and have been doing so for about 2 weeks. A woman named Callie Lopez asked me if I was Linda (I am not) and said that I had requested information online for government grant info at www.grantresearchguide.com (I did not). I was obnoxious and asked her many, many questions about how I requested this information. She became very frustrated!!! I asked to speak with a supervisor and she hung up on me. I wonder if I will receive another call in 30 minutes.
People have been calling me over the last two weeks claiming that they are actually calling this 201-918-4831 but I answer the phone and my number is not even close in area code 804. I can't get my phone company to make it stop. It happens intermittently
I am receiving calls and miss calls from this number and if i call back no one answers or it goes to voice mail.
Some one please take action

Or your Mama Get him in trouble Make Stuff up!!!)Dont let them talk .Interupt them! THEY WILL NOT CALL BACk.Hope This Helps .AS FOR THERE NUMBER AND CALL THEM BACk!!!
they call, supposedly to sell grant info to a name that is not your own. they then want your credit card number so you pay for shipping; then once they have your credit card the charges start running up.
do not give them any information.
we are concerned, and encourage everyone to be wary, because we actually received mail yesterday adressed to the fake person the telemarketers from this number asked for. we believe from our research that this package is part of a seperate scam- rslearning or rising star learning. beware!
called at 8am on a Saturday. Not good. Asked for Neil Hairrs. Told her wrong number but she tried to give me an offer anyway. I hung up.
pick up, no one talks
rings twice hang up or noone says anything when u answer.
This guy calls me every day and says hello can I talk to Bill then they talk about the government stuff
Everyday 4da past 2wks i received calls from this number every 30-60 mins. they actually jus called me. idk who it is but im getn pretty upset. plz sum1 do sumthin about this. FBI maybe.....
This phone number got my number from a grant website. I told them that I do not want to sign up for the grant program but they keep calling me. They had called me for 4 days in a row.

Phone call after phone call like its on a dialer has been calling past 3 days 8 times in evening. when i pick up no one is there. When I call the number a recording asking for the extension.

calling my cell phone several times a day and hang up when i answer. I call hte number back and its a voicemail for an extension. Cannot seem to stop the calls the number is 201-918-4831
They have been calling, literally one right after the next for the past 2 hours!! At least 20 times. I called back and got some weird message. I answered and there was no one there!! It just hung up on me! It's very annoying! Driving me crazy!
The repeated calls from this number is a demonstration of the stupidity of the callers. They have nothing better to do with their time. Maybe, with the help of others they can be caught and taken out of commission.
i am disabled phone calls start at 8 am ive answered noone there remove my na10 cals a day at least me i dont have aol e-mail accout i have not requested info on gov grants
these people are calling us about five times a day. they are trying to sell us some scam about government grants. we told them the first few times they called that we were not interested, but they keep calling. the last time they called i told them in a harsh tone to stop calling. i hope they stop because they usually cal at the most inconvenient times.
They keep calling 5-6 times a night, but don't say anything when I answer
13 calls in last 2 hours. Finally a woman with hopeless English said grant instuctor and what was I going to do with the money. Told her did not know, and never to call again.
In three days called a total of 18 times. Will not leave a message and will not say anything when I do answer. This is crazy I am about ready to scream. I mean 18 times in three days.That is total with all three numbers they have like different numbers they call from that are different last two digits but trust me they all are the same even get the same voicemail message for all three. The numbers are 201-918-4831/201-918-4828/20-918-4830. I am **** off. How do you stop things like this. Which they haven't called like way to early or late on me between 9:30am and 8:30pm. Not too bad but the number of times called it crazy. Anyone on here know what to do about them. I see I am not the only one they do it to.
this number has been calling my 17 year old sons phone. when he tries to call back to find out who it is they say that extension is unavailable.
called 15 times in 3 days told them I was not interested the 1st call
I got 18 calls from this number last night while I was in class (my phone on silent. That is 18 calls in 3 hours. I have asked them to stop calling me. My husband has given them hell and demanded they put my number on a no-call list. Yet, here they are again. Do not know what to do anymore.
We received a call from this number that comes up as New Jersey from a male with a very thick India accent asking for a family memeber and that it was about college info. As this family member had been making queries at a local college, I passed the phone on to them. This was no one that they had contacted or heard of. Not sure where they are getting thier info, but it is extremely current. Rather Scary.
no person on other end.. didnt try to call back, and dont intend to. i am on the no call list and still get these ridiculous calls.
Calling me and hanging up every THREE minutes. When I call the number back to complain, I get a voicemail only, with no identification. When I answer the call, there is no one on the line. I will join every effort to stop these idiots.
Have been calling me since 2 o'clock today. Have not stopped calling throughout the day. I got calls from them at 4:48,5:39, 5:55, 7:28, 7:35 and 7:39. I answered the phone at 5:39, and nobody responded to me, and then I answered the phone at 7:39 and screemed a couple of bad words, and told them they needed to stop. This insanity needs to stop. Who calls someone 3 times in 12 minutes?
calls every night over and over again, but it hangs up when you answer it. Have called back but it is just some extension that is not available. This is just basically a repeat of all the problems everyone is having with these a holes
these people call me every day and then hang up
i would like to file a complaint against this company and prosecute them; i am on do not call lists for the U.S. and California
Same as everybody else - multiple calls even after I told them to stop. The only time I actually talked to anybody when they called they said it was something about government grants.
How do we get this number blocked?
they called couple times and i want my name off the list.
Someone has stolen your credit card number and phone number. These people want to thank you for your interests in US Grants and to let you know that your cd is in the mail. I just got through after the second time at 201-918-4831. SO check your credit card for fraud purchases.
have called me multiple times per day several days in a row. I noticed another post from Texas. I too live in Texas. Hmmm?
Called me about 5 times a day for the past week. When I answered there was no response. Wish they would stop calling.
called 20 times a day call back no response
Received calls from this number 3 times this morning. First one was at 6:26AM, last one was at 7:36AM. No voice mail given. I'll have our carrier block this number. Thanks everyone for posting.
I have been getting calls from this number and when I answer no one is there, and the have been calling since Thursday! I refuse to answer this number anymore because no one answers, let alone they don't let it ring long before stopping.
called me several times. When I try to tell them to quit they keep calling.
I did not request grant information and after requesting they no longer contact me, they still do.
I answer the call, yet, no one answers. Multiple calls daily.
This phone number has been calling me for days now and non stop and numerous times a day and night. I answered when this phone number called me again and I told them to stop calling me I know what you are doing and that I reported them and they hung up on me and haven't called back since.
I was online a few weeks back and was researching government grants. I have no idea how these people got my number. Anyway what they are dong is trying to sell you information about how to get government grants, which makes no sense when you can gather the information form the government yourself. The lady could barley speak english and was rude. When I tried to tell her that I was not interested in anything that she was offering and not to call anymore she hung up on me. I tried to call the number back and all I got was a recording stating that the extension was unavailable. I HATE THESE TYPE OF CALLS!!!!
Looks like I am going to have to start using the old whistle method again. I am on my states do not call list but they can still call me because I enter an email online and then they find my other information???? WTF That makes no sense to me at all!
has called 3 times in the last 24 hours and does not respond when I answer.
constant calling for unwanted "free" rewards or special offers
yeah...i got the same results....they have called me like 7 times in like 10 minutes....hate them...anoing...who gave them my phone number anyways....
Called 20 times over the past 2 days
this person calls and says none thing they have called 4 times
They have called me all day at least 10 times an hour. Now it's down to every 3-6 minutes. I have answered twice and both times it sounded like a lot of crowds and talking in the background, like an office of callers, and a woman says Hi, and then when I don't speak she hangs up.I'm just going to ignore it, my phone is on silent usually anyway. Sorry to all who have the same problem with these a**holes.It's a scam.
someone called and did not leave amessagw
I get calls from this number multiple times daily. The one time I answered I asked them what personal info they had about me and the e-mail address they told me was not mine. It included my name, but was an AOL e-mail account. I canceled the e-mail account, but still continue to get calls. It would appear that, if someone wanted to play a seriously cruel joke on another person, it would be to have these people call the victim ten times a day about a government grant he/she never applied for. The people (when they do answer and actually speak!) have such thick Indian accents that I can barely understand what it is they are saying. When they mentioned the name of their company I couldn't understand that either.And FYI...the (201) area code is up in northeastern New Jersey. These people definitely ARE NOT from Jersey!
Forgot to mention in the above comment that I am not -- and never have been! -- an AOL e-mail account member. Make sure you get as much info from the person you do get lucky enough to speak regarding your identity (without confirming any of it to this person, of course!) and make sure you get whatever e-mail address they happen to have that they claim is your's. Deny it is your's obviously, then make sure you disable that account any possible way you can (over the phone, on the web or both!).
OK...One more thing. For those of you who don't hear anyone when you pick up, give it about three seconds. The people are using auto-dialers and they can take a little time to acknowledge you picked up. You will eventually hear background noise. Once you do, say 'hello', then let them answer. At that point, GIVE 'EM HELL!!!Or better yet, speak in an accent even more difficult to understand than their's. S**t, if they're going to harrass you, have some fun at their expense. My personal preference is Latka from Taxi. Make fun of them and completely humiliate them. I know it may be against your better nature to do so, but they're in some third world country and you will NEVER SEE THEM! So who cares. Of course, if you have young children (as I do) and the phone is ringing at 9:00 at night, then funtime is obviouly over.
This phone number 2019184831 keeps calling my cell phone and there are times that they call numerous times a day. When you call back it just tells you an extension number and that the extension is not available just leave a message. I won't leave a message I am afraid that it something dangerous. If it was a buisness most if not all will leave messages stating who and what they are calling about. Whom ever this is must be a scam. They need to stop calling my phone. The next time they call I will answer and blow a whistle in their ear.
Kept calling me over and over again, lets the phone ring 2-3 times, and hangs up. Apparently because I wouldn't talk to him earlier, when he called me, as I was heading into a meeting.
Calls lets the phone ring 3 times then hangs up and repeats the same thing about every 15 min.
Called several times, when I finally got tired of it and answered, nobody was there.
caller ID shows Weehawken, NJ. I get several calls every day, from this number they stay on the line and say nothing for 3 to 4 seconds and they hung up.
calling-no answer-no voicemail same as everyone else
Rings twic and hangs up. No voicemail, no person. Just keeps calling our cell phone constantly!

They have called at least twice an hour for the last 2 days. They won't leave a message. I finally answered and said do not call again. They called me by my first name and acted as if they couldn't hear me as I told them to never call my number again. They said it was about government grants.

I was called 13 times in the last 8 hours while I was at work. When I finally answered they didnt say anything. what is the point if they don't even answer?

They will not stop calling. I will not answer. They have called 21 times today.

i found these people and decided it was interesting. when i got a confirmation number in my email it had additional charges they wanted to charge. so i called them and told them to cancel which they did and i also told them not to call me back. they said they would not but they still are. they are getting on my last nerve.
I have been receiving at least 6 calls a day fron this number and I want it stopped.
This number has called my cell 8 times during the day at my place of work. When I asked them to stop they still continued to call me. How they got my cell I do not know but I want it to stop because it cost me minutes to answer.

Whoever this is, is very persistant. I don't answer calls from people I don't know. These guys start calling at 5pm local time and call ever ten minutes until 9pm. I just shut the ringer off.

These people call about 8-10 times per day, I won't answer since I don't know the number. They never leave a message, and when I called back it was an extension, not a person.
This number repeatdly calls, no one answers....stupid people.

Called my landline. Hung up as soon as I answered.
called cell during my work hours which is against company policy.
I received 11 phone calls on January 5 2009 throughout day. When I answered I heard nothing. Once I spoke to a heavy accented lady looking for someone. I informed har that she was calling a number that was on the national do no call list. The calls came faster after that. I finally had to shut off my phone to keep it from ringing.
recved 12 calls from: 201-918-4831, within 4 hrs, they wont answer call. wI will not pup any more from this #.
these people called 4 times in 30 Min. and I asked them to stop calling each time, I had a hard time understanding them, it was like Indian (India) or somtehing, I kept saying to stop calling, they just didnt get it.
I too got a call at 7:00 am CST but did not answer it, so I came to google to find out where it came from, if possible. Sounds like a scam to me.
This is a bogus phone number; if you return the call (DO NOT DO THIS) you are taken to an extension, no identification of the number. You should have your wireless carrier block the number, they can simply do this.
im not answering these calls they call and hang up on me.
when call answered no one there.
Unsolicited sales call
called 8 times in an hour
They have called me 12 times in 4 hours, with no one answering call.
After being called over the course of the last 5 days, with no one answering nor leaving messages when I did not pick up, I finally got a call today from a telemarketer with what sounded like a heavy accent from someone in India.
I advised them that I had received calls from this number where no one said anything. I told her to take my number off their call list.
She apologized but did not wish to get off the phone with me. She wanted to qualify me for her grant training. She took too long to explain what she wanted and was difficult to understand. I asked her to send me email information about it and said her time was up talking with me on the phone. I was at work and had no time to talk.
Got a missed call
