Got a postcard I the mail claiming to be from MGM to spend a free weekend in Vegas at the MGM Resorts. The flier states to call this number and use an RSVP code, but there's no RSVP on the postcard. I think it's a scam.

On 09/16/2014, woman called to offer air duct cleaning svc for $40 using a different (408) ph# - a # that is disconnected if you attempt to call it; then, they called to confirm appointment from a 2nd unlisted number, this time using a So. Cal prefix - the idiot on this line had a heavy accent and when we advised we were cancelling the appointment, he became abusive and verbally assaultive, and screamed that it was "illegal" to cancel the service!    Unbelievable, we received a 3rd call today from this number to follow up.    They appear to prey on the elderly, so watch out - total scum sucking scam trash.

I have been getting calls from this number now for a couple of weeks and when I answer they say my email address has been used to ask for money for some fund or other? I told them the email address they told me was an old one of mine, I had not used for over 6 years and that it is all    nonsense and put the phone down on them. Told one off for ringing me a few times and said how fed up I was of it all and again put the phone down. Today I received one and when I put the phone down, the woman rang again asking me why I had put the phone down? Of course I put it down again exasperated with them all! They certainly need reporting. Disgusting.

This company has called us several times wanting us to advertise for the local school. I inquired more about this as I am an alumi of the local school in question. Apparently, back in my day(which was early 2000's so not that long ago) they yearbook staff would go around to the local businesses and solicit advertising space. Now, they hire this company out of Dallas/Fort Worth/Euless area to phone solicit for the yearbook/sports teams/ etc.

These idiots called me this morning and said there was something wrong with my computer. He said his name was "Edward". They called before offering the same scam. I told him he was full of s**t and hung up. The next time they call, I'll bust an eardrum with my referee's whistle blown in in their ear. "Say hello to my little friend!"

Actually not bogus. They raise money not for the firefighters themselves, but to send severely burned children to a special camp that is run by the state's firefighters. The bands donate time so that as much funds as possible go to Camp Phoenix here in TN. The firefighters don't control the local and state government's spending. They see a gap that truly needs filled so these children and heal both mentally and physically. That's why they do it. Because right now no one else is.
See the links below for more information on TN.

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.

SCAM -    They claim you have a virus in your computer & will then try to get you to give them access to your computer where they will then copy all information you have in it.    They claim they are with Windows, or Windows Service Center.

Best way to stop them is for you to keep agreeing a time for them to come round and then either don't answer the door or answer it and tell them that whoever they keep calling is winding them up - waste their time - they'll soon stop.

First time I got a call from this number, it was a guy talking smut. I hung up on him. That was this past March. Just got another call from the same number, a woman left a voicemail, but the volume was so low I couldn't make out what she was saying. Last time, I found an IP number associated with this number, and there were lots of links to it. One went to the Netherlands, a couple more were adult sites. Whitepages.com says it's an AT&T cell phone in L.A., with moderate spam activity suspected. NumberGuru.com says it's a New Cingular Wireless cell phone, with a 50% spammer score. Whocalls.us says it's in the City of Commerce, ZIP code 90017. Several people have gotten spam calls from this number; one poster on Whitepages said they believe a Magic Jack is being used to cover the caller's tracks, another poster, who identified herself as Pam, says it's her phone number and that she's not running a scam. What. Ever.

Callers claim to be Energy California or other lies. If you contact them in any way, such as ''Take us off your list'' opt-out online or by dialing 1, 2 or 9 then you are instead validating that a human ear is responding to the Turing Test and placed permanently ON their SUCKERS LIST.

Excerpt from Yahoo Homes Article, " Don't fall for fall
home improvement scams", dated 9/5/14

Scam:    Cut your heating costs with a free energy audit.

" Con artists may advertise free energy audits, sometimes
mis-representing themselves as being from the local
utility.    The goal is to trick you into paying thousands of
dollars for items such as insulation or solar blankets for
your attic.    Another concern is that letting someone
you don't know into your home could be inviting theft
or even worse."
