what said: THIS NUMBER IS AN AUTOMATED CALL. IT IS AN EXTENDED WARRANTEE. I DIDN'T KNOW THAT MY 99 FORD WINDSTAR WITH 130,00O MILES ON IT HAD AN EXTENDED WARRANTEE.
annoyed said: Caller ID said Washington, DC. My answering machine message played, but caller did not leave message at 2:53 pm EST.
Mary E. said: got this call at work at 7:44 a.m.! Wouldn't answer it, didn't know who it was, no message was left.
A Ozzy said: I did not pick up and a chipper white female-voiced robot left a voicemail about how easy it would be to get grant money from the government and philanthropists--money you NEVER HAVE TO PAY BACK.
She starts, "This is not a sales call! We are calling to let you know about free grant money available from the local, federal, or state government." (etc.) Free money! You'll never have to repay it! (Riiiiight!)
She says to go to requestagrant dot com in order to qualify -- she advises you'll need a valid email address and phone number if you go there. Ask questions at their "Capitol Hill" number (202 683 1404). Yes, it is a huge scam, not sure what they ask you for next, probably a credit card number to get the info, but I'm not willing to check it out. I'm not even sorry for anyone stupid enough to fall for this, they deserve to be ripped off if they fall for this!
Gay said: I got a call from this number, they said they were calling every number in our area. The guy was very polite.
b said: Not a scam. They identified themselves as Kids First and Smart Television Alliance.
They explained how they are putting together a recommended viewing list of movies for families. I was very interested and they were very polite. They sent me & my husband two free films, they really were free, to review for them. The films arrived and after watching them I loved the values they taught. That was my experience with them.
Kat said: I recently recieved two movies after answering a call from this number. I would just like to let you all know that my daughter loves them, and they have some great values. My daughter wants to watch them all the time now! It IS with a company called kids first and they are trying to provide a clean alternative for our children.
Shannon said: They called my cell too, its legal for them to call our cell phones because they are a Non-Profit. I really think this could be a positive thing judging from all the good responses. Maybe we should all answer and see if we can actually clean up entertainment!!
Sabrina said: Sorry, Sabrina, but you're mistaken. The national "Do Not Call" registry applies only to commercial solicitors. It specifically allows political phone calls like this, even to numbers on the list.
Not true said: Political messages are exempt from the do not call list. Thank you US Representatives and Senators for that one.
Feeling Violated said: I'm done. I've had such respect for mccain over the last decade. I'm tired of him riding his military/POW status as his "badge of honor." This call is disgusting. It COMPLETELY contradicts what he said on National Debate last night. Is he so desperate? Is there nothing he won't do? He is disgusting. And he thinks Sarah Palin should be president! Is he senile?! This man's judgement is so bizarre I think he would be dangerous as a president. How the hell did he become this!?
I don't know if I can vote for Obama, but no way in hell am I adding my vote in with these people. God help us if this is the best the Republican party can produce at such a desperate time in our lives.
203-270-2439 said: this is EAS Eastern Account Systems based out of Connecticut. They are a collections agency representing Comcast. This is not a scam and at one point all customers called had past due balance on a comcast account (typically within 1 week). Actual Comcast reps do know have knowledge of every third party agency working on the companies behalf. If you are still concerned call comcast directly at 1800COMCAST and confirm your account balance. pay any past due balance and the calls will stop, usually within a week.
