TBrown said: You can't cancel. My husband and I took the deal, but they don't send the five magazines you want every single month. They bombard your box with other magazines that I've never heard of. We never got the money we won, and after calling to cancel several times I was told by a voice recording that the lines were busy and then the line goes dead. It's a huge scam for sure. We're out $128, and our mailbox will be stuffed with magazines supposedly for the next five years. Also we were called a few weeks ago to re up for an additional $27.80 per month. The guy asked if I would put in a good word with his employer even though I had absolutely no clue what they were talking about. I know they can't add that charge to my card, but just incase I've already notified my credit card that anymore charges from that company are fraudulent.
old guy said: Received a fax similar to the ones above dated November 1st. Not sure what phone number it came from, but it asked to send the W-8Ben back to fax number 1 425 491 8482
We received this fax in the Cayman Islands.
This has been reported to the Royal Cayman Islands Police.
Alysa said: I got this call last night around 8 pm. Telling me my warranty on my car was going to expire and I needed to renew it. When I asked them to tell me what car the warranty was going to expire for, they hung up. My warranty is good for another 5 years. Some old person is gonna think that it is really their car company calling and give them their credit card #. I live in Canada so I reported them to Phonebusters, a telemarketing fraud hotline run by the RCMP. I got all the same information from a reverse lookup website, and I tried to call the # 3 or 4 times, but it says it is not in service. Pretty obviously a scam!
Adelbert West said: called several times over past a few days. Never leave a message when we are not home. We also are on a no call list. Wondering what good the list does.
Robin said: some company calling themselves Premier Health. They ask you to do a survey. You can hear call center stuff going on. They ask about your family, allergies, asthma. What kind of vacuum you have and how long you have had it. I was firm that we do not accept telemarketing calls and was assured it wasn't telemarketing. I imagine they gather this for telemarketers though, specifically, probably for selling vacuums. I regret talking to them and they had the nerve to call the next night again and the day after that. I would recommend not providing them any information.
Marc said: I was offered $9.25 per hour to be a Legal Secretary, and told that I could make $9.50 per hour if I negotiated a higher salary with the client during the interview. The agency never answered my phone calls and I could not leave a message since they have a 201 New Jersey exchange which trips over to a 212 NYC exchange, therefore, voicemails don't work. I left messages with the receptionist, but they were never answered. Emails are answered days later. There are no written commitments, only verbal. They do not inform you if your timesheet has not been received, even though they state it in their emails when hired. Do not work for this agency.

xgwen39x said: Don't know but I got two calls from that number today. Lots of static and and indistinguishable voices.
Laura M said: Just wanted to add that I am in Vancouver, Canada, and the number is a New York area code.
Steph said: I got a collect call from my daughter when she was in Amsterdam. It confused us because the call showed up as comming from this number, 212-918-0000. Also, the time of the call is apparently New York time, so it looked like it came in at a time that I wouldn't have been home. We live in a different time zone. We checked back and found that the call time matches when she called us. Hope this helps somebody else figure out their call from this number.
Chachi said: We just got a call from this number, telling us to vote, and Obama needs our support.
idispisetelemarketing said: I just received an unwanted call from this number. I did not answer nor did they leave a message. I Googled the number, which is how I wound up here.
Additionally, I Googled the information of 'L A CTY FED OF' that showed up in my CID, to which Google offered the following suggestion: 'L A COUNTY FED OF' since the 213 area code was one of the very first in California and the very first return on the Google query is the LA County Federation of Labor, AFL/CIO - perhaps it is possible that the Union is using purchased lists and an automated dialer to make some of those annoying 'get out and vote' calls??
colorado said: A woman said she was calling for "the union" and asked if I planned to vote on Tues. Then told me to tell my friends to vote for Obama and for Al Franklin - I'm in MN, and it's not Franklin, it's Franken. They could at least get the names right!
