This is likely a SCAM caller.    The number, 239-243-9482,
belongs to a florist in Naples, Florida.    A florist in Naples
has no reason to be randomly calling people.

In May, 2014, the same thing occurred.    The phone number
for a florist, Matlacha Isle Flowers in Cape Coral, FL was
also showing up in peoples' caller ID's.    However, the
phone number, 239-243-9481, had been hi-jacked by
scammers.    People who picked up their phones were
being asked to donate to Fl State Troopers (yep, that
scam again).     The caller had used the phone number
of the florist in the caller ID to trick the householder into
picking up the phone.

The BBB has warned of this SCAM quite some time ago....
The use of regular phone numbers in the caller ID to fool
people into thinking the call is "normal" and to pick up the
phone.    Don't fall for it.    If you start to see a lot of strange
numbers in your caller ID for......florists......day care centers... small family businesses in Tampa, Florida,
elderly people living in mobile home parks, etc......or
any other calls that look normal.......but just seem odd
(like you are getting a lot of them now)......chances are
its a SCAMMER on the other end of the phone.
I feel very badly for the businesses and individuals whose
phone numbers are being used by the unethical and
immoral scam artists.

This is a scam call.    The number of a small carpet business in Fort Myers, Florida is being used (spoofed) to trick people
into answering the phone.    For more information on this
latest scam, see BBB article (central east texas).

posters on other websites are reporting new scams by the telemarketers and people looking to exploit innocent people.
they are now using the telephone numbers of regular people to con people into picking up the phone.....like using thephone numbers of innocent small business owners in the
local area or anyone.    Also, they say that these scammers
are also using the phone number of the person himself
in the hopes of shocking the person into picking up the
phone when he sees his own phone number in the
caller ID.    BBB warns against picking up phone.

Getting calls from this number. Post on another site says caller identified as State Highway Patrol asking for donations. We have received many calls at our home with the caller supposedly being Florida Police, Florida Police Union, Florida State Highway, Florida State Troopers, Florida Firefighters, etc. They have used many different numbers so we speculate that these calls are not legitimate: 239-220-5920; 941-205-0061; 239-324-9740; 305-602-3079; 941-462-1008; 813-413-4999; 813-444-5672 (Spoofed #).

Not sure who this is.    Got some calls.    Didn't pick up.
checked other websites.......one poster says it is the
Fort Myers police union asking for donations.    Could be
telemarketing or could be scam.    Who knows.

Truck drivers beware!    My husband was looking for a job.    He received a call from this number.    She said they give $1,000 sign-up bonus, $22.50 per hour, full health benefits from day one, medical, dental, and vision, and they pay for it.    They said it was a 24-ft box truck, no-touch freight, and they only had one spot open, if he wanted the job, he need to move quickly.    They said they were going to do a $300+ background check, but required him to pay $168 up front and they would cover the rest. They asked what companies he had previously worked for.    She wouldn't give the name of the company she was calling from.    He didn't have a good feeling about it and told them he wasn't interested.    After looking the number up on-line and seeing all the complaints, it is clear that these people are simply trying to get money from people with promises of making more money.    Don't fall for it!!

I rcvd a phone call from someone stating I had a past due balance owing $489.00 for search engine optimization. I argued repeatedly that I do not pay anyone nor have I signed a contract for SEO on behalf of the company that I am office manager for (9 yrs). He became a bit more hostile each time I shut him down. He said he would be sending me another invoice.
