The FCC, the Federal Communications Commission are one of the go-to people if you wish to issue a complaint regarding nuisance phone callers. Their website will generally ask the all the appropriate questions in regards to your call. However, if you would like to use another body to lodge your complaint or if you’re complaining directly to the caller themselves (if you have got their contact information.) then in preparation, here we have below what you might want to jot down as the call is happening, or while the details are in your mind. Being a good and accurate historian is essential in building a case in any complaint situation.
1. The phone number where you received the phone call
2. The date and time of the call
3. Whether or not you are on the National Do Not Call list
4. Did the caller advertise goods or services?
5. Was previous consent given from persons in your household to call this phone number?
6. Have you made any previous inquiries or applications with the individual or company, such as requesting information from their website?
7. Whether or not you or other persons in in the household have requested the cessation of these phone calls
Here are the most annoying spam numbers that have been harassing US citizens during the last week:
1. 3604615083 from Port Angeles with a tellows score of 7
2. 7574479265 from Norfolk with a tellows score of 8
3. 07788209043 mobile phone number with a tellows score of 9
Luckily, the phone preacher did not return so far and, of course, we hope that our work contributed to make an end to this nuisance.
But there are other spammers and scammers only waiting for you to pick up the phone. Both numbers on rank 1 and 2 were one rank lower last week.
There are no new reports on last week’s spam number 1. The only thing we can say for sure is that this is an automated dialer.
We have got very useful comments on the scammer on rank 2. Everybody watch out, this is a number phishing for information!

And finally mchoate had fun with this number:
someone that is trying to get debit/credit card numbers. it is a scam. I called BOA. they took the information. when you call the number back it ask for you to put in your cc/dc. I had fun with it and just put in random numbers… about 50 times! Then I BLOCKED their text.
Did the PPI scam wave already reach the US? So far, we have only heard of this happening in the UK. The 3rd most wanted spam number is offering clients to claim back money from their PP-insurance. Read more about this scam method on our UK blog.
