Newest comments in Area Code 866

Recording saying "someone in your family" owes money for medical bills.    They don't say who or for what.    You are dumb enough to return the call and you are screwed.    Probably targeting the sick and elderly.    Could be hospital employees walking out with thousands of names and phone numbers.    Could be another case where a Baylor employee lost track of their lap top and someone has thousands of names and personal information.    My opinion is this is just another con and you should be cautious.

As far as I've been able to tell, this is some sort of debt collection.    I've gotten 4 calls from them in the last 2 days (two of them past 7PM).

The calls I picked up to were a recording along the lines of: "Hello, we're calling in referance to-" and then a message about pressing 1 for the call or it would leave a voicemail.

Called the company back, and reported the issue, provided the phone number they were calling, and that I had not given this number to any studen loan (I've only had the number 2-3 weeks and given it out only to family).    I was told that there was no listing for this number and that it may be a call-forwarding that they could not stop.

I called this number back and their answering machine does say The National Rifle Association.    But when you put in Google you get a lot of comments saying it is not them but another anti-gun organization.

These people keep calling because I don't know them I don't answer their calls. Wish they all would drop dead in telephone hell. How would they like it if I called them all the time when they are sleeping. ROT IN HELL!!!!!

Individual called who wanted to speak with my wife, who was at work, I had a feeling that he was debt collector so I asked what it was about? He would only tell me if I gave him my wife's birth date. I refused and asked for his number when my wife called - she learned it was bogus.

This phone call came to my office phone number, indicating a large amount of student loan debt, with nothing sent to me beforehand by mail.    None of this jibes with my record of debts or repayments.     Mr. Wells called 3 times in all, and when I finally spoke with him for a few minutes, he claimed that he must have confused me with someone else by the same name (but different birth date).    This sounds like it could have been a phishing expedition, and I told him so.

Robo-Calling "Medical Research" Survey.
Ignorant call-bot starts talking as soon as your voicemail picks up, so it talks OVER your announcement, then hangs up in mid-speech when it hears the beep!

At least two or three calls a week from this number. I believe it is what is called a war call--checking to see if the number is valid so they can add it to the telemarketers call list.I would like to know who the telephone service is through so I can send a formal complaint to the provider.

Numerous calls to my cell which I have "ignored."    I finally called back...a recording states, "You have been contacted by marketing or a sales call," then disconnected.    Bizarre!!

This may be "war call" to see if my number is a valid number they can use/sell to scam operators. Complaint being filed.
