PostPosted: Tue Dec 19, 2006 6:21 pm    Post subject: Repeat caller problem Reply with quote Back to top

I've got a problem/issue I need guidance for. I keep receiving a call at random times of the day. The caller ID says 000-000-0000. If I don't know who it is, I don't answer. It might be a telemarketer, someone soliciting for funds, a bill collector, or someone with a cell phone, or someone with a job offer.

I figure if the call was important they would leave a message on the automated Vonage answering service. Sometimes the caller is persistent. The phone would ring, the display shows all zeros. It rings four times, stops, and then rings four times again. This can happens non stop.

So I put my telephone in "answering machine" mode. The phone answered after four rings. They hang up, and immediately call again.

So finally I unplug my Vonage adapter for ten minutes or so. When I plug it back in, everything is OK, but then it starts up an hour or so later.

I go online and look at my call records. Sure enough, I receive calls from the number 000-000-0000 several times a minute. Whoever is doing that couldn't be using a PSTS phone. They must be doing it directly on the Internet.

I told Vonage tech support about the repeat caller, but they say they can't act unless I file a police report.

One thing someone mentioned in the forums is the possibility of "flash callback", which sometimes occurs if a "flash" occurs when you hang up the phone. However, this seems to be occurring at random times, even if I had not been on the phone.

The caller could be "spoofing" their actual number. This is, they "transmit" to the database a different number than their actual number.

An example, I can "spoof" my number to yours, and your telephone number and caller-id would appear.

Many bill-collectors, solicitors. and charities do this, to by-pass some blocking system, since they are sending a telephone number and not blocking theirs.

We get this quite often on our cell phones. My wife will also get numbers transmitted such as: 4578.

Is there anyway to block this crap on a cell phone, or is this something that we have to live with?

I am glad someone posted this to the forum. I would like to know how many others have been actually getting the same thing

bsaucer, I too was getting the 000-000-0000 for a while but it was periodic and I thought it was some strange marketing company with a blocked number. So I really never looked any farther into this.

However over the past week it has escalated I started getting calls from
727 541 000. If you will put these numbers into a Google search engine you will find that many other people are having the same issues. In fact it looks to be some sort of a CC scam to get acess to your account! Now the 727 number no longer calls and I am getting this number calling ( same thing) 813 541 0001 not as much on Google.

However check these links and prepare to be SHOCKED

See below especially number 2

>> http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-170052.html

I advise you if you do get a live person on the line do not verify any information they will entice you with a shopping spree or gas card or something. The numbers are Verizon Wireless.

The real question is who let our CC information leak to this company?

Hope this helps you

I can tell you exactly how I got my number scammed into this b/s situation. A few days ago, I saw a commercial for "doggie stairs" that were 2 for 19.99. That is a very cheap price for these items, I remembered the website and went to it yesterday. I was going to buy the steps online, until I noticed the webpage for checkout (where I would input my credit card info) was not encrypted. I chose to not transmit my personal financial data over unencrypted lines, so instead I called up the listed 800 number. On the phone, I got one of the automated robotic answerers, that could do voice recognition to its questions. I never talked to a human. Fine, as long as it worked, I didn't care. Then when I thought I was done, the robot tries to upsell me on the "delux" version of the stairs. No. How about "delux" fabric to cover the stairs? No. Ok, well, now you get to hear about three additional offers (something about pet stain removal, some pet brush, and I don't remember the third). I was unable to bypass this forced commerical on the phone. Again, I didn't care that much. They failed to upsell me on anything, and I was paying the price I expected to pay. (By the way, if they had upsold me on all items being offered, my price would have gone from $19.99 to about $100). Oh, and then they said it would be 4-6 weeks for delivery, unless I wanted to pay $10 for expedited handling (not shipping) and they could have it out of the warehouse in 3-5 days. Neat, but no thanks. That was all yesterday. Then today, about 11am, I get the phone call. Caller ID shows the number is 813-541-0001. My phone number is unlisted, unpublished, and on my state's "do-not-call" list. I very very very rarely get a telemarketer, and when I do, it's usually a non-profit. So I answer, and I hear some young-ish sounding girl go through her spiel (and in the background, it sounded like a stock exchange, just tons of other sellers cranking out their lines) about having a great offer for me today, and I think something about a $5000 sweepstakes. I can't remember it all, she spoke very quickly. But the last thing she said, I remember perfectly. She said, "And we'll put it on your credit card ending in 1234" (not my real last 4). I stopped in my tracks. How could she have my credit card? Well, the only thing I can think of, is that this company is closely affiliated with my dog stairs fiasco. So I asked her who she worked for. "Direct Discount Reward Center". I told her I did not want whatever she was offering, and to have my name removed from her database. Her exact response- "Sure, why not." And hung up. Any more calls and my attorney general is going to be contacted in addition the the appropriate federal office. Ugh.
