I'm working late and someone from this number kept calling someone in the next office. They kept calling back, but I didn't want to answer it because it wasn't my phone. Thought I'd check on here to see what the deal was. Called at 6:28 and then again at 6:30 for sure, maybe more. Major spammer, POSSIBLY based in Saskatoon, SK, Canada. This is one of the outfits that uses "predictive dialing", meaning they will dial several numbers at once: the first to answer gets spammed, all the others get a dead-air call (otherwise known as harassment). The interesting thing is, when I try to add this number to my "Selective Call Reject" feature, I get a recording saying that feature will not work with that number. Phone company tells me it's because it is a "display number" only, the actual number is different (so what?). However, while the telcos won't prevent their biggest customers from spamming its smaller ones, some neat software I acquired called "Identafone Pro" sure does--works with your modem and plays a disconnect signal to whatever number you want (or range of numbers, like all of a given area code). One last ring only, then blissful silence. Seems I just had a friend call me on Skype, and this number was what came up. So possibly some organizations are using Skype for spamming. Received a call from this number while I was at work yesterday. He called my work phone, and asked for me by name. Stated that it had something to do with my VISA, but I had trouble understanding him because of his accent. I explained to him that he called me at work, I was busy, and explained that I had to end the call. At that point, he started shouting at me to stay on the line, so I hung up on him. Must be a scam because I do not have an active VISA account. this nummber called me today then three unknow phone calls followed. did not answer any of them Started receiving a call from this number today. Conveniently they happen while I am out of the house but I check my phone and no message is left. Tried to call back to find out who it was and I was told the number was equipped for outgoing calls only. What gives?
