Newest comments in Area Code 866

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.

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.

I got the same call 2x today with the same line they were from a truck driving firm calling about an application.    The first time I didn't pick up my phone and they left this message.    I called the number back to hear who was calling, I hung up, then 20 minutes later    they called me the second time leavnd msg..    The call back I assume was from their caller ID. Not happy about this!!
