lost everything said: I've been dealing with this guy for a few months, but no one seems to know what he is really about. He has expressed interest in some real estate investments that my firm represents but he seems to be too secretive. Even though we have not done any business together yet, there is something odd about him. He says that he has projects in many parts of the world and also runs orphanages. He goes by the JP or sometimes Jay Peters. Would you mind sharing your experience with him? I just have a feeling that something is not quite right about his business conduct, but cannot find anything derrogative about the guy. Please help if you can.
Ennis said: Just received a call from this number saying i won a trip. I filled out a contest form at a local show. They said i had to pay them 299 for the trip because it was a promotional offer. When i hesitated, he hung up.
Fort Lauderdale Law Office said: I DID NOT PICK UP THE CALL DUE TO BEING ON THE DO NOT CALL LIST AND I DIDN'T RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER. THEY LEFT NO MESSAGE, BUT CONTINUE TO CALL BACK. I DON'T THINK THE DO NOT CALL LIST WORKS, BECAUSE I RECEIVE AT LEAST 2 HARRASSING PHONE CALLS DAILY FROM SOMEONE THAT WANTS TO SELL SOMETHING OR WANTS DONATIONS OF SOME SORT. WHAT A PAIN IN THE BUTT!!! I'M STARTING TO WONDER IF A PHONE IS WORTH ALL THE HASSELS.
Alexis said: We just received a call from the same number. I answered just as the answering machine did and the call was disconnected; it was probably an automated call. Our caller id said: LA City Off. I googled what I had of the caller id and the number and didn't find anything. 10/27/08 7pm

This number belongs to Paetec Communications which is well known to hide scammers and the companies they provide services to. They have been know to ignore police requests for information on there clients.
By all means everyone should blog about Paetec Communications and there evil scams they do.
Supersaverca said: I received a call from this number a little while ago. It was not a telemarketer but a collection attempt. They were looking for a person with our last name but when I told they had the wrong party I was accused of lying. I told them not to call me again. They replied that they would indeed keep calling. I asked to speak to a supervisor and was told that I was speaking to a supervisor which I did not believe. The man was rude and insulting. The name that came up on my caller ID was TENET.

Snuffy said: Caller was looking for my supervisor and when told he wasn't here, I was called a liar, told to shut the f**k up and listen to what he was going to say. He challenged my religion and used the F bomb, liar and shut up each of the 6 following calls within a 3-5 minute time frame (no caller ID on my equipment). He threatened to continue calling and disrupting my company's business as long he didn't hear the f***ing words he wanted to hear. Not sure who this tact and vocabulary challenged individual may be but I believe the public term for this type of business is "bottom feeder". I'm sure there are more colorful and to the point adjectives that could be used here but then that would bring me down to that level. Save your ears and the time and trouble and hang up or do not answer the phone if this number is visible.

I just (literally 15 minutes ago) received a call from "Jerry" from the number my cell phone recorded as 214-328-8480 coming from Texas. I wasn't able to answer the phone because I was on the other line, so he left a message. His message sounded urgent, so I called him back. Last time something like this happened, it was from OfficeMax wondering why I hadn't bought anything in online for awhile, so I thought this call would be some random call like that. The number he left on the voice message was 1-800-710-2122 ext: 245. I called him back, the secretary asked me for my name (which I'm always reluctant to give if I don't even know who I'm talking to) then transferred me to his extension. I explained to him, that the person he was trying to call (which was something like Shalina Molina? or something like that, but of course he spoke too quickly to really hear clearly) must have given him the wrong phone number. He immediately asked me if I knew her, and how to contact her, and if I knew a Mike Faluko, which of course I don't. I asked him to repeat the number he tried to call, it was indeed mine. I told him I've had this cell phone for a number of years, so his records must be wrong. He then said he was looking at my phone number straight from the service provider and named MY cell phone service provider. I told him he was wrong because that was my phone, and I'm not the person he mentioned. I asked him what this was all regarding and all he responded with is "Personal matters." Then I probed a little, by asking if he worked for my cell phone service provider, which he denied and responded that he was an investigator. This did not sit well with me. He's calling me thinking I'm somebody else, and believing I have ties with a person he's trying to contact, he has my phone information, and he's investigating something? There is too much vagueness to feel assured by the whole ordeal.
I have a personal lawyer and I'm not afraid to get him involved. Hopefully he will be taking his "investigation" elsewhere.
To the people above my post who are responding "hey pay your bills!!! the calls will cease" and "PAY YOUR BILLS, IT IS REAL SIMPLE." I wouldn't be surprised if you are employees of this place. I'm an accountant and I pay my bills. Probably even more efficiently than you do...
