This number or one very similar calls my phone almost once everyday. I answered and had no response but could hear what sounded like a call center and the agents all sounded like they have heavy foreign accents. If you call it back it is almost as if you get another business each time its annoying

just got a call from this number and the girl said she needed her kitchen cleaned. ( I have a cleaning business) She said she needed it done right away, same day. I told her I was booked and could not do this today. I then asked her where she needed this done and she said a different city that was no where near me. I told her I dont do that city and will not do the cleaning, this is when she proceeded to hang up. She got my number from craigslist as this is the only way to get info on my business. Will not be answering that again and will have to remove ad from craigslist. What would have happened if I did go meet this person. Pretty scary!

I just received a call from this number. I almost didnt answer because I didnt recognize the number. I finally did pick it up and was greeted by a man with a foreign accent who said his name was John. I didnt give him the chance to say anything else because I hung up on him. Now that Ive read all the comments here I certainly wont answer if I receive another call. I appreciate the heads-up!

Several phone calls from this number. A female says she wants to buy my timeshare. Which I do not have.

I do not give any information and hang up. I asked her to remove me from
whatever list she has and I will report her scam.

I got a call from this number twice and they claim they are from omni tech support. When I said I was not interested and they needed to remove me from their call list and they said f you then and hung up I then looked this omni tech support and spoke with a supervisor and they said they do not call out saying something is wrong with your computer.

Got several calls from this number 661-748-0240, regarding a rental posting on Craigslist. The man identified himself as Tim looking to rent property for himself and 2 dogs. I became suspicious since this number was tagged and labeled as a skype number previously used by a relative to call. I have since blocked the number.

I received a call today from this number claiming to be from Dell. They knew one of my email addresses, but not the one for my current account. The lady had a thick accent and the phone kept cutting in and out. She told me that my computer kept sending error messages, which meant I had a virus on my computer that she could take off. I told her that my computer did a sweep this morning and everything was fine. She then said that once I got in front of my computer she would show me where it was. She asked when I would be in front of my computer and I told her 8:00 PM. She didnt call back. Her story didnt add up. I knew that wasnt how Dell worked.
