In the last few days I've started getting a lot of spam calls to my mobile phone (an AT&T iPhone) - either marketing calls offering to loan me money, or calls asking for someone who I don't now. Some of them have invalid caller IDs.
1 (646) 843-625
Even though I've confirmed that my cell phone number is on the national "do not call" list, I can't even report these people because the government's website doesn't allow you to enter invalid phone numbers. The numbers all have to have 10 digits.
I've also asked the callers to stop calling me multiple times. It sounds like they could all be coming from the same call center. They hang up as soon as I say to take me off of their list.
Has anyone else had this problem? Any ideas how to make it stop? It's multiple calls per day - very annoying.
Other spam calls in this week have come from these numbers. They're probably the same people:
865-857-7912 << I've seen postings about other people getting bogus loan offers from this number
"658-546-9105 is not a valid number. If you are sure that you got a phone call from a number beginning with this prefix, the caller may have 'spoofed' caller ID."
227-915-8178 << Same problem
658-546-9105 << Same problem
