I surely hope no poor soul inherits this cellphone number as its been abused and of course put on blast my yours truly!!
Recieved a call from that number today on my cellphone. It was a phishing call, in Spanish asking to press 1 to be transferred to the corporate office for some special offer.
When you call the number back, you get an error that the caller cannot be reached due to being out of the area of something of that nature. Best advise is to report them to the FCC, but the scam might be a little difficult to track.
Post up and holla at ya man if you so happen to Google the number when you been called by it, and end up here. Seems the other blog is a little loaded with comments.
O, and by the way, the cellphone numbers being called seem to be under T-Mobile, Sprint, and Nextel. Others may be affected too thanks to number portability, emphasis me, as I have a Sprint ported number and am now with Verizon Wireless.
Edited to add:
Shouts our to hp, for providing a link to report these people for blowing up our cell phones. Here is the link
Its legit from what I can see, since the link is actually on the FCCs website as well.
As for registering with the National Do-Not-Call Registry, well you can, but its not necessary as its still illegal to call cell phones from an auto-dialer. Don't believe me, read it here on the FTC's website: http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2005/04/dnc.htm
But I am not sure if there is a law on it or not. I think its just a bunch of corporate policies in place thats keeping it from happening, so the Do not Call list might be a good task to do just in case. Keep in mind that the Do not Call list entries only last for 5 years. Correct me if I am wrong though.
