j.w. said: I received 2 calls; no message no answer. I called it back and it states the voicemail box is full. Probably some marketing scam.
TIm said: I ALSO RECEIVED A CHECK FROM THIS PLACE FOR $3500. I DID NOT KNOW IT WAS A SCAM. I GOT THE EXACT SAME INFO ABOUT AN EMAIL ADDRESS TO TELL I GOT THE CHECK. I GUESS I NEED TO CALL THE BANK AND TELL THEM TO NOT WORRY ABOUT THE CHECK IT IS A FAKE. I HAD A DRESS ON CRAIGS LIST AND THATS HOW THIS MYSTERIOUS PERSON GOT MY EMAIL ADDRESS. I WILL NEVER DO ANYTHING LIKE THAT AGAIN.
cher said: caller id says BCRF Breast Cancer Research Fund (is what they often say) but they won't identify what State/or location or a Physical Address- for 202-747-7371. I Have given to Cancer Research before; and AFTER fifteen years of Surviving; well no figure the Cancer Coordinators are getting CRAZY to gather more funds. Nurses/Doctors I have worked with professionally say that many with Certifications/Lic's and in the health care professions are also getting a BIG increase in these types of scams so be Very Careful!.. WHAT part I do NOT get is that when you say "I have already GIVEN" -they say 'WELL then YOU KNOW HOW important it is to CONTINUE" instead of Appreciation of what you have already done! It is a scam as this place does NOT always Identify itself the "same way" as The Cancer Research Does! Overall the best cancer treatment is good healthy habits-adding -a ALL NATURAL DIET Exercise; avoiding Alluminum and Parabans in your lotions/deoderants etc. and never doing anything via a PHONE CALL alone! If its legitimate they WILL DEF be happy to put it in writing and sent you a info packet or web site; Learned the HARD WAY over giving to these places Period.

Greg said: so i got a call today from a 202-595-3336 number asking for someone whom Ive never heard of. i was truly confused and said "who?" - they hung up on me. i decided to call them right back and got "National Gaming Commission" i asked who call and what for and the guy just said "F@$% you!" and hung up on me again. i then redialed and he just picked up and said it again and hung up. i contacted the NIGC (national Indian gaming commission) and the NIGA (national Indian gaming assoc) and asked the ladies if they knew of any other gaming commission in DC. they both said no and that it is fraudulent. anyhow, i believe this person/s is just getting new numbers and trying to get info
Ron said: I have received a few calls from (203)551-2599 and the caller never left a message. I would not answer it if I were you.
b said: This is indeed Charter Communications. When connected, there is supposed to be an automated message... often a satisfaction survey or a message explaining that a service call has been scheduled and you are to press "one" to confirm the appointment. I got three of these "blank" calls via my cell phone today with disconnects at 4 secs instead of a message. I reported the problem and hopefully, it can be fixed as unconfirmed appointments are cancelled. (No one give a %$#@*& about the satisfaction survey.)
