I've received at least 2 calls from this number. It's a recording soliciting credit card rate decreases. They keep you on hold with music and statements about where you are in line until finally a live person comes on. The first time I stated that I was on the 'Do Not Call List' and they hung up. This most recent call, when the live person came on I asked "Who is Calling" and they immediately hung up.

When I looked up the number online I found that numerous people are reporting spa calls from this number. PLEASE MAKE THEM STOP! DO SOMETHING ABOUT THEM!

They put a very convincing add on your phone saying that you can get a free iPhone are similar phone and I show all these people that were on the phone and how they thought it was fake but it was it. Then they call you on the phone and tell you that your phone has been taken over. I hung up after that. I called the number back and it says this phone number is no longer working. This was right after they called me.

When I heard the man tell me that I was to be arrested for not paying my income tax, I knew what it was. I listened to him and he gave me a number to call him back on and I believe it was the same number or very similar to it.

I received a telephone message on my home phone from a caller at 407-337-0389. He said he was calling on behalf of the U.S. Treasury Dept. and that I owe them money. He said my failure to call him back at 475-999-0204 immediately could result in my having to appear before a Grand Jury.
