This is a call from the state of Karnataka in India. It seems the caller ID has been withheld as it is only the country and std code.

I saw only +91811 on my caller ID. Call had been diverted to my mobile which gives full ID compared to landline, so I said "Hello?" without giving my name.
A lady with a strong Indian accent said she understood I had had an accident.
I asked her where she had got this information (There should be no publicly available record in the UK of specific people who have been in accidents and my last accident was 20 years ago)
She answered something unintelligible and I got her to repeat it and tried to get her to spell it, at which she hung up.

There is no way that I know to stop these calls. The callers do not respect and cannot be castigated by the Telephone Preference Service as they are outside the UK and the number is untraceable.

I have put this down as a survey call as I doubt they get accident claim clients directly, but are compiling lists of 'soft' callers to sell on. Withhold your name if you see any unusual number, give them a polite but hard time and they will likely leave you off their list. (United Kingdom) Apr 2 2013, 9:51 am Post

I got a call with the same message today. There are reports on other sites as well. Some scam, I suppose. What's common to them is the first three digits "837...", apart from the country code for India +91

I think I have a state for this call ... it has been manipulated but Oklahoma has area code 918 and it seems to come from Tulsa.
I am just guessing though ... since none of it makes much sense ... there is no one on the other end ... just a click.

Last year at this time I received similar call to this one but from a different number ... I seem to remember that the general consensus was that the number was passing itself off as international but in fact was from Oregon somewhere.

Whilst this is a different number, I believe it is the same tactic, namely to try look like an international number. The operation is the same though ... a call at two in the morning, then a hang up and no message .... I learnt from last year to not answer these calls ... then a subsequent call at 6:30 am and a hang up .... this time they held on too long I do get a message notification which essentially is a recording of someone hanging up ... maybe that was intentional?

It does not make sense and leaves me confused as to the purpose of such calls.

Last year I just ignored those calls and a month or two later they stopped.

As already has been pointed out, AT&T has no interest in making a paying customers life easy since they offer no solution.

Hopefully someone out there has something useful to offer so that we can track these calls to a provider where we can report them or some such plan.

Unsolicited call from unknown caller in India, possibly in Bangalore.
