Who is Calling Me?
Check out whocalled.us
While I was on the phone, another call clicked in. I didn’t answer it because I’ve seen the number (559-457-0453) and company (Next Level Solutions) before and they’ve never left a message.
Well, after I was done with my phone call, sure enough, the previous caller didn’t leave a message. Not surprising.
Who is Calling Me?
Curious, I wanted to find out who this was, so I typed “Next Level Solutions 559” into Google. Check out what site came up.
Turns out, from the comments listed, that this company was calling to solicit subscriptions to The Chronicle. The irony is that we already take the paper.
Anyhoo…I thought others would find whocalled.us very useful in helping with those annoying telemarketers that seem to get through even though most of us are on the “Do Not Call List”.

Enjoy your week and the long upcoming Labor Day holiday weekend.

Here’s a possible course of action against Warraanty Processing Center telescammers. Perhaps it’s not a direct hit, but it has g good chance at a ricochet.
Name : Warranty Activation Center
Telephone No: 310-599-5636
Telephone Service Supplier: http://www.digitcom.net/
Location: WEST LOS ANGELES
12923 Venice Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90066
Phone (310) 358-7000
Fax (310) 437-4105
I called Digitcom and reported anonymously that their client, 310-599-5636 is in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991, by 1) not removing my telephone number after I press their automatic do not call back option(#2) and by 2) not providing me with a copy oif their Do Not Call Policy, as required by the above listed law. Each additional call is subject to a $500,00 fine to me by this company.
You may consider giving Digitcom a call and informing their rep about this. This will serve as 1) part of your due diligence, [should you decide to pursue legal action to collect your $500.00 per offense fine] and 2) if enough people call in, it will will send the carrier a clear message from us consumers…”don’t carry these scammers or it will come back at you”.
Today I also contacted EBSCO Industries, who was allegedly associated with this warranty company. The nice lady who answered said they were a bit overwhelmed with calls from angry consumers… EBSCO may or may not be related to the “Warranty Processing Center”, but now, EBSCO, a telemarketing company, is using employee resources to answer the calls. Unfair, maybe, but we’re just doing our warranted follow up (pun intended).
Consider giving Digitcom a call and politely ask them to help you make their client, the “Warranty Processing Center”, desist from calling your number. Make spend a dollar in wages by taking your call. Many calls = a good hit on their pockets. Silly of them not to listen.
215 876-6189 is Penncro Associates, a collection agency, and they are IN violation of FDCPA laws for calling you after 9 PM.

Â§ 805. Communication in connection with debt collection [15 USC 1692c]
(a) COMMUNICATION WITH THE CONSUMER GENERALLY. Without the prior consent of the consumer given directly to the debt collector or the express permission of a court of competent jurisdiction, a debt collector may not communicate with a consumer in connection with the collection of any debt —
(1) at any unusual time or place or a time or place known or which should be known to be inconvenient to the consumer. In the absence of knowledge of circumstances to the contrary, a debt collector shall assume that the convenient time for communicating with a consumer is after 8 o’clock antimeridian and before 9 o’clock postmeridian, local time at the consumer’s location.
File a complaint against them with the FTC:
If you take the paper ( doing business) you are, by default, giving them permission to call you. That is an exception to the “Do NOt Call” rules.
Dear John: We are sorry about this major inconvenience. We, unfortunately feel just as sullied as you feel harassed. Digitcom has phone numbers just like many telephone carriers. Digitcom provides these numbers to wholesalers. In most cases (like in yours), to a wholesaler called Telephone Management Inc. They in turn take those numbers and provide them to their customers who tend to be telemarketers. Digitcom, does not place any calls to any numbers, Digitcom is not soliciting any business, Digitcom does not do any telemarketing, we are simply a phone card and phone numbers company, we donâ€™t sell car insurance, we don’t sell anything else. Only Telephone Management’s customers are calling you and others. For all complains and issues please go directly to Telephone Management at firstname.lastname@example.org for a prompt resolution to your problem. Please be sure to complain about pressing 1 and not being taken off the list and pressing 2 and having operators that are unhelpful and rude. We are eager to help people like you have their issues resolved by TM and have set up our own email address: email@example.com so that people making complains to them can also copy us and we can try and make sure they are following up on these problems. Again sorry for your problems.
Who is calling me? Often when people see a weird number on the caller id of their phone they ask this question. Anyone who is wandering to discover about a weird number should use the Internet for its investigation. By putting only a small effort on the Internet you can discover a good resource for tracing a phone number. The online resources are purpose built that is why it is not tough to use these resources. Anyone who has awareness with the Internet can employ these resources.
Sometimes when I research on the Internet to know who is calling me, I come to know that it is a telemarketer however sometimes I find that it was a friend or relative. A few days back I was out of house and when came back home, I found a couple of missed calls from a number. I researched on the Internet to discover about that number and I found that the call was from a company where I had applied for a job. When I called back on the number, I come to know that the company has called me for interview. My interview went well and now I have been working in that company. It means that a missed call could be important for you. So, one should not overlook a missed call from an unknown number.
If you want to know who is calling you then you can join any online phone look up website. For most of the States you would find public directories offered by the government. You can become member of any of these public directories in order to discover the identity of unknown caller. If you often get important calls from your clients or customers then it would be necessary for you to join any website because it is necessary for you to get to know about every unknown call. You may lose business by missing one important business call so be cautious and keep researching about unknown calls.
Moreover I you have noticed that your kids have been getting calls from a strange number and you feel that it might create problems for your kids and family then you should discover about that number. By discovering about who is calling, you would be able to know the reliability of the other person. Some resources would provide you the background records of the owner of a number which would be helpful to determine the consistency of a caller.
