Cell Phone Telemarketing

In the last couple months I have received a handful of telemarketing solicitations on my cell phone. It is usually a prerecorded message warning me of how I'm driving my vehicle "without coverage" and that it is "urgent" that I purchase a vehicle warranty. I also received another one stating that I won a vacation, sweepstakes, or some other prize. These questionable tactics have been covered here before, but there seems to have been a surge in cell phone telemarketing solicitations which are an increasing annoyance for many people all over the country in recent months. Apparently, the telemarketers don't care whether or not your number is on the National Do Not Call Registry.

I filed a complaint with the FCC, and I urge you to do the same. The solicitations that I have record of on my cell phone are 702-520-1462, and 410-727-5090. What other phone numbers have you noticed?


  1. These are the numbers for this scam that I have recorded in the last two weeks: 213-363-5144, 213-363-5155, 916-219-8162, 626-207-9100, 408-587-2177, and 425-704-2033. I am getting ready to subpeona the company through the Attorney General's Office if they continue to call (with different numbers too!) after I've told them to remove me from thier list several times. I have also added my number to the Do Not Call registry.

  2. Just got a call from Tennessee phone number 731-588-2771 with a pre-recorded message advertising home satellite installation. Pressed "3" to remove. Hopefully I didn't verify my number by so doing.
