Ticked off said: Received call from this number on a Saturday night. It was a computerized message looking for someone and Press 1 if you know the person or are related to him/her and Press 2 of you have nothing to do with person and/or do not know him/her. I pressed 2 and the automated system said they will update their files. What really irks me is that (1) call on Saturday; and (2) don't identify themselves (ie. like XYZ business, etc). This type of call is annoying and harassing especially the time that I received it - dinner time. One more time receiving a call form this number, I am going to notify authorities. Have no idea who they are. Comes up unavailable on caller id.
Caller: unknown comes up unavailable on caller id

Obviously a scam trying to dupe people into paying for a listing on their site since the regular
company handling the yellow pages and associated site provides way better ID when they call.
Besides I have yet to have the real yellow pages folks speak with such a thick foreign accent.

M.E. said: The caller is relentless. I donated to them (Children's Cancer Recovery Foundation) one time and now they won't stop calling even though I requested to be taken off their list. They call a minimum of 6 times a day, even at past 9 pm, and on weekends. Even if they are legit, their way of soliciting is absolutely atrocious and aggravating.
Steve said: Called collect. Smart Shoppers Saving Club. Only learned name after I accepted the call (was actually expecting a call from family thus my taking it). Will dispute the charges now.
Called back to confirm. They said they wanted to GIVE me a $100 Gift card good at Walmart, Target, Kmart, etc.
The catch? I PAY them a one time fee of $6+ for a shipping and handling.
I asked why would I pay for a Gift, the definition of which is something being GIVEN to me.
They said it was one time only, not recurring.
I repeated myself and they terminated the
