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

jebdup said: Have received many calls from this number over several years asking if I have high credit card balances. The voice says press "3" if you wish to not receive any more calls which I do and yet I still hear from them. I call the number back and get a discontinued message for that number. ANNOYING AS HELL!!!!
Anon said: Just called, has called multiple nights in a row, said they were doing a study for the University of NH. I said I was on the do not call list, and if it did not apply, to remove me from their own list. Woman said they had no list, then tried to ask more questions (whether I had children, etc), to which I interrupted and said I would NOT be answering questions, and to remove my number from any "list" they might have and hung up. She was VERY pushy, and rude - so I was back.
SMc said: Rec'd two calls minutes apart, both listed as "unavailable" caller ID, but the phone number was shown.
Called back 2 hours later, tired man said it might have been his partner, and if it was important, they would call back.
Sounded like a personal phone line, no business indicated on answer.
