Religion and Profit – the 3 US Most Wanted Numbers

Here are the top 3 most annoying phone numbers of this week:
1. +17675034697 from Dominica with a tellows score of 5
2. 4254069024 from Seattle – East suburbs with a tellows score of 6
3. 8003187853 toll-free number with a tellows score of 7

Last week’s top spam number 0012538203089 got expelled from the list of top spammers of the US. Now, the Dominica number moved from second to first rank! We did not find out any more information yet, except that this is another typical silent call or ping call number. Meaning: a callcenter is giving people automated calls from a list of numbers they probably bought. The automate is checking active numbers in order to provide them with telemarketing calls later.

For the Seattle number on rank 2 user Payback\’s a bitch reported:

A total scam. Called with offer to lower credit card interest rates. Attempted to obtain credit card account numbers and personal information. Keep them talking, waist their time as long as possible, act as dumb as you can. Let them explain everything. I faked a bad line and had the suckers call me back twice. How incredibly stupid are these people! Unbelievable!

Well, there’s not much to be added…

On rank 3 we arefacing probably the most ridiculous of all harassment calls and spam/scam methods… User Jack reported:

It’s some call from a preacher who claims himself a prophet, asking for entering his prayer. An unnecessary call to answer.

… and user Jayne added:

Left message on cell phone saying they were going to save me. I’m on DO NOT CALL LIST. This is an unsolicated call and seems to be calling many people.

Sad enough that these scammers count on the hopelessness and naiveness of religious people. Might be just a question of time until someone will read him the riot act.

Give us more information and help everybody to find out about and recognize scammers!

Take care,

2. +17675034697 from Dominica with a tellows score of 5
3. 5595548838 Sacramento with a tellows score of 4

This week’s most annoying phone number 0012538203089 has been searched more than 3225 times now.
Unfortunately you’re not sure about who the caller might be.

“kaut”, who reported this number as Harassment call, writes:

Got the call two times (Suisse). First no reply then got the connection. Persons says they are calling from windows computer department and something is wrong with my computer. Try to figure out from which company he is calling. He didn’t answer and I stopped conversation.

It seems to be someone who tries to pretend to be from Windows (Microsoft).
If you search the internet for “scam call microsoft” you will see that this is a widespread scam.
Often the caller has some kind of indian accent, too.

So beware of any phone calls applying to this information.
