I am going to answer this call next time. They call every single night around 7-8. I am going to mess with them and act like I'm cookie monster.
Called me and said he was surveying people in California (I have a CA area code), and that participants would get $10 for their time. He asked me if I was over 18 and a resident of CA; I told him, "This sounds like a scam, so I'm hanging up," and did.
This number called my cell phone several times and claimed to be taking a survey from Minnesota University's health department or something like that. I told them to call back at an earlier time. They continue calling at night. Now I see that they're a scammer.
Have called twice claiming to be taking a survey for CDC... Told them we were crab and bed bug free....Got hungup on.
Called at 8:45pm on a Sunday evening saying they were conducting a study for the CDC and Department of Health. Asked if I lived in a private residence, if I was over 18 and if this was a cell phone number. I hung up the call.
This number 312-529-9717 called me twice, I speak a few languages because of my job, last phone call I received was last night Sun. 07-14-13 at 7:05pm and I answered and spoke in German, I immediately was hung up upon and never heard from these guys since.
Btw, this tactic worked with numerous other scam and telemarketing calls, just a tip to minimize your unwanted phone calls.
Called saying they were conducting a health study for NY....
I was sleeping and someone from 31-525-9717 called and hung up on me. I'm on the Do-Not-Call list, too. Irritating...
Called my cell phone and left a message that he was calling for the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygeine, andd needed me to call back an 800 number to participate in a study. I saw the number was not from Maryland, and tried to call back to find out why he called me, but got a busy signal. Seen he has done the same thing on other sites, total invasion of privacy!!!
