Jeff said: Man with very Indian/english accent called and asked if I wanted to reduce my interest rates on my credit cards.
It sounded fishy so I told him I didn't have that many, no thank you, wished him a good day and hung up.
The strange part was that Caller ID showed the call as coming from Northrop Grumman...which is a major aircraft manufacturer. They don't deal in credit cards that I'm aware of.
Monica said: I get a call on my mobile phone about every other evening. I say Hello and no one answers and then they hang up. I have called the number back and it either just keeps ringing or i get a message saying that the voice mail box is full. I forwarded my calls to my land line one evening and the same number showed up in my caller ID as ACTION MARKETING. I have looked online for their website, but there are a number of groups with that name, a similar name or a variation of that name.
I answered the call the other evening when my mobile phone was forwarded to my land line and even though the caller ID listed it as ACTION MARKETING, it turned out that it was the company CLOSET WORLD (who we had do some unsatisfactory work for us a few years ago). I don't know if anyone else has had this happen, but I'd like to know if it's just Closet World or if other companies are using this ACTION MARKETING group as some sort of dialing company.
Tom said: Yes, this is a call from the market research group. Lucky for me... they actually left a message :) It was to see if I was still interested in participating in a local focus group. I had inquired about one of their adds on Craigslist.com the day prior.
none said: Hey they are persistent, we've been called for weeks. It's got to be about 10 or more times by now. They left a message about the CDC, and that they would be asking questions about children in the house under the age of 4 and what immunizations they have received. I just don't think its that important for them to know anything about my household.
Scotty said: Claims to be a travel/vacation business that is attempting to recover expenses for a timeshare. They state that we have not completed a timeshare tour. Therefore, we must pay a vacation or take another tour at a second location.
