Got a call from (385) 229-3204, phone screen showed: Federal Financi
Caller said they were giving away a free Restaurant.com certificate as a way to promote a business. Said it was totally free, no sales pitch, no obligation, etc. He then wanted to send a representative to deliver the certificate - again no sales pitch, no obligation. I declined. However, they already had my phone number (obviously) and address. Not too sure if they had my full name.
Called me on my home office line ... answered, no one on the other end spoke but could hear lots of background voices. Call center scam from overseas apparently based on what I have read on this and other sites. Blocked the number so hopefully I won't be getting repeat calls like others have.
Comes up as federal financial. They have called a few times. I am registered on Do Not Call list. Don't know what they are offering, didn't wait long enough to hear.
I got a call from them today. He spoke a language I didn't know, and then hung up.
This was my business line and an email comes with every call. This was what came up:

On February 4, 2014, (2:58pm) a call was recorded on my home phone. There was only background voices for well over nine minutes. Absolutely sounded like an offshore call center. Could not make out the accent of the people in the background… but I could tell it was foreign. There was a good bit of laughter. At one point, I head someone being belligerent to a person on the other end of the phone. Sure wish there was a way to put the creeps out of business.
called me today But I didn't pick up
They called one two lines a once 12 times even threaten to call the police,
then started to just press a number for long period to screeech in their ears.
They call and there is a lot of background noise. I said hello and no response.
If you pick up but don't say "hello" they hang up. If you say hello, they start by telling you they are not a sales call. I hung up, they continue to call. I am registered on the Do Not Call List. It t sounds like an off shore call center. There is a lot of background noise
