Number list of well known telemarketers

Lately I got more call from unknown number , caller just rang once and hung up so that you call them back on your own expense. I found this nice list which lists well known numbers used by telemarketers.

Re: Number list of well known telemarketers

Hi

Do you have a * next to your number in the phone book?
This means you don't like to receive any advertising phone calls.

Years ago I just got plenty of them every day. Since 1.4.2012 there is a Swiss law against it and I informed SECO-FairBusiness.


www.seco.admin.ch.

They put unwanted phone numbers in their datafile. They sent me some more other links
http://www.bakom.admin.ch/dienstleis...x.html?lang=en
http://www.callnet.ch/
http://sdv-konsumenteninfo.ch/selbstregulierung/telefonsperrliste/

Strange, but afterwards I got only few unwanted phone calls and to those few once I told that I'm going to register them. Since 1 year I'm happy not getting any more unwanted calls.

Maybe this information helps.


Cheers
Cristina

Thanks for the heads up! Several of my friends got calls like that, too. They said the caller called and let the phone ring just long enough to generate a missed call and then hung up. They were curious so they looked up the caller's phone number and found out it was a reported scammer. The phone number's been used in this one-ring phone scam. Be warned that if you get a missed call and call them back, you will be charged enormously for the call. You don't know, but it's a premium rate phone number or the call turns out to be international so please be warned. Don't let anyone or yourself fall victim to the scheme. Share this to family and friends.

Re: Number list of well known telemarketers

I found complaints on this particular scam at Callercenter.com and below are only some of the phone numbers reportedly used by the scammers:

216-206-6895
603-570-4414
268-762-0028

There's a lot more other phone numbers so please remain vigilant everyone.

Are these numbers in Switzerland or San Fransisco?

Re: Number list of well known telemarketers

I never return calls unless it's from someone I know or they leave a message that explains who they are and why they're calling (and I like what they have to say). And even then I typically don't bother

Re: Number list of well known telemarketers

Well, nowaday you never know if you see a number if the call really comes from there. I receive calls with a Swiss number and if I ask where they are located they say e.g. Irland or Germany or Great Britain, ....

Also Swiss numbers are changing. Former 044 ... was Zurich, 056 ... Aargau, 081 ... GraubŁnden. If you move you can take your number with you so you can live in Zurich with a number starting 031 ... (Bern).

Does anybody here return calls from unknown numbers? Strange?

Not a chance! If it's important, the caller would leave a message.

They have got so annoying that I only pickup the phone if its a number we are expecting and there are some particularly persistent ones that just ring everyday. We just let their call ring out and ignore them anyone that really needs us knows our mobiles or work numbers
