That’s from WISTV10 website and Jackson County, IL and the sheriff’s office was actually issuing a warning about it.
There’s several scams related to this one including you won money, you won a car, or there’s a delivery for you and you have to pay whatever amount to get it through customs or some such thing.
The company that provides service for the number is http://www.digiceljamaica.com/ and I contacted them via email and filed a complaint and I actually got several responses back and forth between me and a very helpful representative. They actually promised to look into it for me and see what they can do about it. I’m not sure if anything will actually happen but maybe if enough people complain to them, they might do something about it.
Feel free to add your experience to the comments below..
So here’s another number for you filed under ‘scams’ but I’m not sure I would call it a scam actually, well no I would as it is the Republican Party.
Yep the number is for the Republican party calling to poll you.
I find it utterly amazing that politics are exempt from the Do Not Call List. They can call you whenever they want and however many times they want. I’ve gotten five calls in one day from the same number, starting at 8am.. It’s just sickening really…
Here’s another scammy telephone number to add to the list.
I am on both Do Not Call lists for federal and state, but yet I still get these people calling.
This number is for Premier Energy, a scam company trying to get you to switch electric companies. This company was originally Premier Nursing Products Corp and supposedly sold products for nursing mothers now they’re in the oil and gas business. I’d say that’s a hell of a leap to go there…
I’ve read other complaints from people who have had this company call and actually claim they are from another electric company and ask for their account number and bank account number?!
It’s just a scam, don’t answer the phone, block the number and report them and maybe something will happen if enough people complain.
Yep, no id list on caller id. That’s a giveaway to spam or scam caller.
Hmm.. another scammy phone call. This one just calls and hangs up on the answering machine if you don’t answer it, but it sits there silently for almost a minute before it actually hangs up so it leaves a blank message on machine.
If you call back you can’t get through, says call cannot be completed at this time.
Supposedly it’s the American Future Fund, but I can’t verify that. It’s a republican political call essentially asking for money or doing a poll or survey. It depends some people have gotten asked for money and others have gotten the automated survey.
Either way it’s crap. I’m on the Do No Call List and it doesn’t work.
Since I have Counterize enabled on my blogs it’s always interesting to see what’s going on, and it’s kinda cool that the blogs will email me if there’s an error somewhere like someone trying to go somewhere on my site and not being able to access it…
Lately I’ve come across quite a few ‘hacker’ entries, and actually backtracked them to the originating server, and even went so far as to explore the stuff they’ve got in there, all of there hacking tools, like scanners etc. It’s really interesting because they like have their names right in there, or at least their aliases, they sign their programs and work, leave email addresses and IRC channel addresses to contact them with…
I also found it interesting that most of the hackers use PocketPCs to do this stuff…
Here’s a screencap from Counterize showing what I mean:
You can click the tiny one for it to open full screen to 1137×153 size…
anyway, I even went through their directories and downloaded the tools they use just to check them out and get some more info about them.. why, curiosity I guess…
as for Spammers, I was thinking, they are a real PITA, I get quite a bit of spam, thank God for Akismet really, but wouldn’t it be cool if those spammers would at least click on one of our ads? I mean they make use go through these junk messages/comments, couldn’t they at least make it worth our while to do so?
Back to the hackers… these guys are a trip, here’s an excerpt from their code:
# Release Name : XxX-SuperScan-XxX
# RFi Scanner Christmas Release ! 😀
# ————- [% Notes %] ————-
# This rfi scanner contains piece of code from; PitBull CreW, Mic22, Inphex.
# And also lets just say more version wil come 😛
# With this release you must be happy since its the best RFi Scanner around.
# And its even public, happy x-mas ! 😀
# You can also PM the bot with your scan, this is handy when you have loaded multiple scanners.
and here’s another that I found rather funny as well:
# Mafia_KB, i hope i pretty fucked up your sell
# asking 2000 fucking euros for a crappy scan ?
# this one is 1000 times better so i hope
# it affects your sell even more lol.
Oh well.. tis life I guess
