    Calls every night between 6-8pm. No message ever left, caller id shows Decatur,AL. Beware of this 2563536468 number, Im sure its a scam or theyd leave a message. Possibly a paid for political push poll, same thing. Theyre ignoring the Do Not Call list.

    Have called every day for the past week, sometimes twice a day. They say its a subscription service and you can enter to win an ipod. Luckily there was a way to unsubscribe from the calls.

    This male caller on 1-11-2010 called and asked to speak to my wife.She doesnt reconize voice and neither do I. He was told not to call again.

    Immediately after I answer I hear ring tones as if call has been forwarded. Lady on the other line asks for 'Steve' but apparently has no last name because she hangs up. It's odd that my caller ID jammed the numbers together. I always get a hyphen between area codes etc.

    Goofy, self righteous, little black guy, I only mention his race because he speaks some form of urban English that I cannot understand, has been calling me from this number for months trying to collect a debt that I've told him I do not owe. Even after telling him more than 10 times that I owe no debt to a company that this collector is working for; they still continue to call back.

    got calls on my cell phone last night.  Both phones are using pre-paid Smart SIM in the Philippines.  Caller hung up. Robo-caller?
