JA Alsogettingcalls said: I've received a few calls from this number. I once answered and it had to do with some service for seniors. I never said a word and quickly hung up.
FYI: I am also on the DNC list. I've learned it only works for 800 numbers, not the other WATT line numbers (877, 866, etc.). This, though, is different. When my phone rings, I usually look at Caller ID to see who is calling. If I know the number, I answer. If I don't, I wait at the phone and let my answering machine respond. When this 760 area code first appeared, I let the call go to my answering machine. No message was left. My suggestion is to note when these calls come, writing down the date and time on a calendar. Eventually, 3 weeks later, it should stop. Then I get on with life.
john said: These telemarketers have been hassliing us every evening at dinner time. I called the Cox number but the guy said there is nothing Cox can do to stop that caller. He suggested contacting the DNC registry.
Taking Action in Torrance CA said: Received a call from 760-230-8767 and heard a pre-recorded message for Senior Alert Systems followed by an offer to PRESS 1 for more information. I did a Goggle Search of the phone number and found so many complaints that I decided to hunt down the Service Provider for that phone number. It is ported out through Cox California Telecom: Customer Service/Billing – North (760) 599-6060 Mon-Fri 8am - 8pm / Sat 8am - 5pm, Se Habra Española. I called them and I had to press several numbers to go through a maze of different services (mainly pressing 3) but I got to a live person in Customer Service who agreed to place the offending caller on an investigation. The Representative of Cox California Telecom also stated that they hope other people who have received these solicitation calls to please report them to COX so that action can be taken to (and I quote) “Take Them Down”. So if you are getting calls and they do NOT stop, look up who is providing the telephone service for that number that is calling you and try complaining to the Service Provider. It may be worth your effort.
