Robin said: This number is for Shoppers Market Research, a scam artist company that is sending out bogus checks to "Mystery Shoppers". The scam is that you are to deposit the check that they send to you and return most of it to them via Money Gram. Problem is, the check is no good and you would be left with a hole in your account. Beware. If you get one of these checks in the mail, report it to the local athorities.

JR said: i accidently hung up b/f answering. we had a pizza from pizza hut last night but it was called in from a cell tel #. perhaps my number was given as a reference number.
thanks for the postings- it all makes sense now :)
Nat said: I kept getting calls from this number for over 2 months and didn't answer. Just today, my grandson answered and the person on the other end told me they were from First Bank of Omaha and he wanted to send me some literature on credit card coverage. He was annoying me because he was speaking so fast and garbled that I couldn't understand half of what he said. I told him to just mail me the info and "why" did he have to get my address and such info. from me? When he asked in which city I was born, I told him that there was no way I was telling him that and he said "goodbye." I'm still suspicious!
