Robocallers Drive Me Nutty 424-253-2659 Jordan Matthews

Here is my latest Robocaller get rich scam caller Jordan Matthews’ information. Too bad he has been sucked dry of $3k probably to get in on the sad scheme of robocallers making millions. The originating number on this one was (424) 253-2659 with the referenced web site for more information of www.elitewealthcreation.com. I guess I should make my complaint official with a FTC/FCC filing. Here is the audio of voice mail for those interested from_4242532659_2012-8-2

Also, while researching the number, I found a Top Offender’s List at mrnumber.com.  Now if I could only automatically port those numbers into my ooma blocked callers list.

New FCC Rules Should Make It Harder on the Robocallers

Hopefully the new FCC rules passed today will make it harder for robocallers to continue calling those of us on the Do Not Call Registry.

Under the new requirements, telemarketers will have to get permission in writing before placing an automated call to a consumer. Previously, companies that had an established business relationship with a particular consumer could call them without permission. For example, another FCC official not authorized to speak publicly explained, a bank could robocall one of its checking account customers to try to sell them insurance. The new rules prohibit that without written permission.

Update (2012-02-16): Wouldn’t you know it, as soon as this was adopted by the FCC I get a robo call from 609-503-8133 (listen – from_Private_609-503-8133_2012-2-16) from Joseph Andrews III with curtasycash.com.  Here is the DNS information:

The message states that for $180 you can blah blah blah…. Here listen for yourself….from_8048583156_2012-1-13  The website referenced when you go to HOWCANIDOIT.INFO is a redirect to http://members.audiogenerator.com/postcard/?7124637X1166 which has a photo of some scammer, Britt Phillips, holding some cash that references computermillions.com.  The phone number belongs to ymax communications/Vocaltec, the folks who offer magic jack and other VOIP services.  I will file an abuse complaint with them in addition to the Do Not Call folks, but doubt it helps.

Another telemarketer to block with the Ooma personal block list.  Here is the message left by this one from_7167950616_2012-1-12.  I am on the do not call list for what it is worth.  What gripes me the most is the money making scam they are promoting is using the same robocall technology to make your own $50K/month.  Get a life and quit calling me people!

Ooma Personal Block List

Here is my current blocked caller list for robocallers and that sort of thing.  I am on the Do not Call Registry (www.donotcall.gov) and stil get several calls a week.  Some people believe their number will expire from registry once you have registered, but according to this FAQ, that is not the case.  Once registered, always registered.  The sad part of all of this is the most recent rash of callers have been for the make cash from home that tell you that you will make thousands by setting up your own robocaller for cold calls that solicit more people for the pyramid scheme.  With Ooma, I have this list and community blocked caller list set to return a "number disconnected" message.  I just noticed one of the numbers looks like a Visa card with a CVV code for the caller ID information.  That is now shown as #.  I guess that could be sweet revenge if it was the robocaller's card information.

Do Not Call Registry (Ignored) & Ooma Goodness

Okay, so I went with Ooma as my Voice over IP (VoIP) phone service last fall. The premier version that offers some cool features and a second line was $120 per year along with a $3.50 monthly charge for fees and taxes. Compared to the old AT&T landline, even with the cost of the Ooma Telo device ($180 @ Costco), I am already saving money just six months into the investment. Sadly the same can't be said of folks who are looking for help with money needs or credit problems when they answer the unsolicited call to their phone concerning money making opportunities with Nouveau Corporation – ECS Consulting – or Wealth Builders International  AKA:financialfreedomsites[dot]com. It seems like each week I am getting another robo-call message from one of the ECS consultants directing me to one of several web sites. This is where Ooma comes in as I can download the message from the my.ooma.com website and attach it to my FCC Do Not Call registry complaint.  On the last call, I also complained to my state's Attorney General consumer protection division who snail mailed the offices of ECS with my complaint.

The saddest part of all of this are the complaints I can find on-line about the company detail stories of people in need of money or bad credit faling for an investment scheme where they are promised a great return or help with their debt problems. The investment/deposit amounts vary from $3,000.00 to $15,000. Most reports state that no money (i.e. deposit) was ever returned and their business contact who set up the deal has disappeared.  My research into the numbers that call and domain names provided has allowed me to trace the call back to a person in some cases.  In a way I feel like am victimizing them more by posting them to my list of shame, but come on people, anything that sounds to good to be true – probably is.  

 

List of Shame:

  • Paul Kight, Warner Robins, GA (404)448-3286 (helpmebefree)
  • Bo Rich, NYC, NY (206)339-8453 (getrichatm, mdmformula, janscashformula)
  • Carol Sue Kellum, Santa Barbara, CA (805)880-5102 
  • Unknown, Seattle, WA (206)984-2424 (cashcomestoyou)
  • Virgil Williams, San Diego, CA (877)815-2680 (easycashflowmachine)
  • Natalie Marco, Kingman, AZ (702)946-9496 (accessincrease)
  • James "Virgil" Beistle, Mesa, AZ, (206)350-7056 (fireyourupline)

Now for the really cool Ooma feature, each one of these numbers has been added to my blocked callers list which is shared with other Ooma subscribers.  I also have activated the Ooma community feature to block telemarketer numbers reported by other Ooma subscribers.  While I guess I should set it to just ring continuously to keep the robo callers busy, I have it currently set to answer and tell the caller the call has been blocked.  My other option is return a phone number disconnected message, but I am saving that one for later.  Since starting the blocking game last December, I am finding that the consultants are trying be more clever with domains registered by proxy, obfuscated web pages and javascript, as well as the name given not matching a domain whois lookup owner name when I can locate real information on one. What they don't realize is that each one of their pages has to link back somewhere to collect the form data from the web site visitor who wants more information.  While it may take a little digging, the source will be found at some point.  Now if I could only get the domains blocked, but wait OpenDNS will do that.  Only problem with OpenDNS is you lose the benefit of being redirected to a closer server when requesting web sites as there is no data on your location available via the DNS information usually tapped to make the redirect, but that's for another blog post.  For now I think I will just start filling out the forms with the previous caller's information in the latest caller's web form.  That should keep them busy for a while.
