Bentley said: Got a call from ths so called Bueau of Investigations today... for my son, I told them he doesn't live here and they demanded his cell phone nbr. I told them no because I knew it was fraud. He threatened to have the police to come to my home and arrest my son, well, he won't be here. By the way, an indian with heavy HEAVY indian accept named "Robert Smith" (yea right) I told the as$hole off and before it was over, He cursed me out told me that he was going to come to my house and F me in front of my husband. LMAO. Like that's going to happen. Soon after hanging up, another call and i just handed the phone to hubby, who got cursed out as well, very professional for a so called "Bureau of Investigations"..... of course he was cursed too and was so intimidated. NOT. He let the A$$hole have it and they hung up on him. If you get a call from this number, tell them to take you off their calling list, if it was legitimate they would have your info. They are SCAMMERS who want your info for fraudulent purposes. Do not give them any info and report them to the FTC comissions office and Attorney General Office as stated above... God, what a way to start the day, I was woken up by this stupid phone call and now I'm pissed off, hope they don't call back!
Anon said: Had a message on my machine asking to call back at this number , extension 1. They mentionned me by name (I think.....although ti was so garbled that its hard to say) ...they also provided a reference code and said the call was related to my work (doubtful) and that I needed to call back soon.......never did and don't intend to. If its about my work...c.all me at work :-)
yugogirl said: My original posting is inaccurate. Upon further investigation I have discovered that in this particular case we cannot identify the marketer based on the phone number alone as several businesses have this number. It is based on the extension. And I do not think this will show any of our caller IDs. Please post if you can identify the 'real' extension of this horrible company. And please do not send an Email to the individual I mistakenly identified in my original post as he is a VERY NICE person. Thanks!

Subject: /47-723-3761 ->. STOP CALLING US!!!!!!
B y searching the web I discovered the above phone number belongs to the company you own or are working for.
I am sick and tired of your company's frequent unwanted calls coming in as an unknown number when I am on Canada's "Do Not Call List"!!!!!!!!
WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS ILLEGAL!!!!
You will easily see the number of individuals who want you to stop calling them if you do a web search on 647-723-3761.
You better STOP calling us IMMEDIATELY or you WILL be facing a class action lawsuit!!!!!!!!
fedup!!!!! said: This number keeps calling my house 5 or 6 or more times a day, they are looking for someone that does not live here i can not get a hold of a human!! It is always a recording and when I call it back it goes to a voice mail. This is getting OLD!!!!! Any ideas how to stop this?
Cofins4Terorists said: I called this number back today. 866-359-2940 claims to be a collection agency that due to law is unable to leave a message for those they call. The name given today for this company by a person named Cindy is..."State Collection Agency". When I asked what state had such a law forbidding the company from leaving any message she began insisting I give her my name and phone number so she could further assist me.
When I explained to her I just wanted to know what state had that no message law and nothing else, she began lecturing me as to why she needed my info. I also told her I never received even one piece of mail from her company showing a so called debt owed. Cindy claimed their company sends out bills of collection all the time. Explained to Cindy hard copy would make her more believable and I have received nothing from State Collection Agency nor any other company. (I owe no one)
I now informed Cindy that since no bill of collection in writing and no messages left when calling my phone, I would have to report to my state this series of harrassing phone calls. I still every call on my caller ID showing date and times. The calls come at ALL hours so are therefore considered harrassment by my state. She became quite annoyed to say the least and said the calls were legal to which I responded, we'll see what my state says about those middle of the night calls.
Cindy hung up.
