Got a few calls from these people. Our local police department says they are not legit and that they are just fishing for info so they can scam you. I'm on the Do Not Call List, but apparently they don't care.
Received multiple calls over the past two weeks or so. I didn't take their calls b/c I didn't recognize the number; but thanks to this forum here, I'll not at all. Thanks

Got a call from 701-217-1659, and when I pressed 1 to got forwarded to a person with a heavy accent, and when I asked them how they got my number, they said it is public record, and they hung up. This number is from Western Wireless and is a cell number. Would be very weary as they are a scam. They won't identify what company they were from other than a debt consolidation company. Do not give them your credit card numbers. This should be illegal
Got 2 calls from them in the past week on Skype. The first, they left a message stating that congress passed a bill to help with debt, blah, blah, blah. The second, they didn't leave anything. Fortunately, I can block them so it's no big deal.
This number appeared on my prepaid cell phone as a missed call. In the past, I have read that it is indeed scammers, supposedly from Africa (maybe the same ones who email posters on Craig's List). This is why it doesn't matter if you're on the "do not call" list. They're illegal and could care less about the list. This I learned from Verizon when I called to complain about repeated calls from them. But here's what I do now to help me with my frustration and anger: I have a police whistle by my phone and whether I answer the call or return the call and dial the number for a person, I wait until a live person answers and blast the whistle several times. I have to say, the calls have greatly decreased and I haven't had one on my land line for months. If all the solicitors start calling my cell phone, I may give it up. The good thing is I don't keep it on so it only costs me if I return the call, and that I can avoid. Thanks for posting here. The WWW is a wonderful thing for safeguarding ourselves against those who would rob us one way or another.

Spoofing/Scam/Junk Call. Had caller ID as 877-404-5778 but real number in my call log was 701-217-1659.
Received one call and pressed "2" to be removed. Received another the following day and got through to a manager named Victor. Essentially, they are trying to cash in on people in over their heads with credit card debt by closing your account and taking on the debt. They were quite misleading and attempted to pass themselves off as representatives for my credit card companies. Pretty ridiculous, I hate bottom feeders.
Got a call from them this morning. Must be some type of scam. Didn't leave a voice mail.
Got a call from this number. The caller left no message.
