    ive been getting phone calls lately from random numbers,
    414-462-5902
    909-842-9105
    508-535-3491

    and when i pick up no one is there. i try to call back and i get an message saying that if you would like to be placed on our do not call list please press 1 now. most of the time its a ladys voice, but had one message that was a mans voice. has anyone else experienced this. i dont want to press 1 due to unknown charging that i might get(paranoid from past emails).

    the weird thing is that last night i was discussing this with my girlfriend and i was playing around saying that someone is tapping into my phone line. today she got a call from

    909-691-9105
    and got the same response when she call back
    and she had never experience this before.

    does any one have similar events or know what this is?

    yeah i get these call everyday. seems like its been 2 months. i still cant believe that it is random since my GF got her 1st one today 12hrs after we talked about it.

    i remember reading about some scam originating in the bahamas where they charge you a ridiculous amount of money . dont remember the details of it and im sure it is different from this but i am still cautious about it.

    This started just about two months back when ALL cell phone numbers became public. Something to do with the telemarketing industry writing BIG checks to the Obama campaign and certain other parties in DC. However you can put your cell phone on the national do not call register same as we all did with home phones a few years back. I can tell you it worked for mine, was getting four or five calls a day! Now nothing!

    Everyone is getting those too. Even our cells that are used in the office for work only have been getting them. Makes you wonder if the cell company is selling our numbers.

    I get about ten phone calls a day at work asking:
    "Can I speak with the owner of the business".
    I reply: "Do you have the password"
    They seem dumb founded and say:
    "No, can you give it to me"
    I say:
    "Do you have a pencil ready"
    They usually reply:
    "Yes"
    I reply:
    "G- O -F- U- C -K- Y- O- U- R -S -E- L- F"

    We have been getting the same calls for all our office phones - I tried to press 2 to remove from the list but it didn't work so I waited patiently for the called to get on the phone / ask for her name & supervisor name & request that they stop calling - It seems to help for now.
