Just wondering

I've recieved 2 calls from an 062 area code here lately....i did some research on the computer and here's what i've found...just thought i would pass this info along....
Area code 062 is invalid. This was done intentionally so you can't file a complaint at donotcall.gov , because the government website requires a valid area code to file a complaint. THIS IS A CREDIT CARD/CAR WARRANTY SCAMMER. THEY ARE SEEKING CREDIT CARD NUMBERS AND OTHER PERSONAL INFORMATION THEY CAN USE TO SCAM YOU

and this

OK, just in case no one figured it out, they are most likely calling from India. The area code is valid, but is reported to "South Central Asia" (see link below). I was dumb enough to pick up the phone (I confused 062 with 602- a local area code here) and was greeted by a recording saying something about lowering my interest rates on my account. I hung up naturally, since most financial institutions that call me state WHO THEY ARE almost right away, even in their recording.

You can have the number 062 blocked by the local phone company. With Qwest it's a $4 fee a month. So I'll block it for a couple of months. I've had 8 calls in the last 3 weeks. If you get a rep. after punching 1 they won't tell you who the compnay is. Ask too many questions they hang up or ask your number be removed they hang up.

I was just called from area code 062 then 232 then 8897.(Sorry about the formatting, Topix does not condone the posting of phone numbers, social security numbers, or other personal information into the forums.) it displayed "Out of Area" on AT&T caller ID. I picked up and a recording talked about lowering my interest rates (didn't specify credit card, mortgage or anything); clearly phishing. Press 1 to speak to someone, 2 to be taken off the list... <<I hung up>>.

I received my first call from 062 today, I did not pick up because I am dealing with two more pesty callers. I will share tis with you. One is Global Reach Ind And the other is the worst pest of all. between the hours of 7:39 PM, and 9:30 PM I have received 13 calls, from Telemarketer, Grant Consultants Inc, from Secaucus, NJ. The additional information is Carrier: Allegiance Telecom of New Jersey. Fortunately for me I can read it on my screen, a fact they do not know how to deal with yet. When I see these two numbers I document them. I have already made a police report for harassament. Telemarketers are allowed to call but not to harass people. If I have to I will see them in court.

I just received a missed call from this number:

50622507402

It seems like an awfully long number, and I cannot figure out what country that is coming from.

I thought the 5 062 ' area code' implied a sham fraud so I never answered the call. Thanks.

I received one of these 062 calls yesterday and did not pick up. I was surprised that they called this morning (Saturday) at 7:08 AM. I started worrying that maybe someone I know in Africa was trying to reach me. Now I'm glad to know that it's a scam operation.

I received a call from area code 062 and just did not pick up my phone. I normally don't answer calls from unknown telephone numbers.

i recieved one but was not home, thinking it could have been one of my friends in south america i called it back. it said that it was not a valid area code and then stated so in spanish. they did not leave a voice mail, as any real company most likely would have. so thanks for the heads up guys

Ugh those people are very aggravating. We have received several that say Name and number not available. When we answer they say it is the final warning about the warranty on our vehicle. We have not had a warranty on it for a few years now. We just hang up. But it is good to inform everyone of this.

I received a call from 0622284735 and my daughter answered. She said it was a recording about my auto warranty about to expire and I needed to hang on the line to speak to a rep about renewing it. My car is used and paid off I never had any kind of warranty. She hung up on them.

I received a call from 062 right after a collection agency called and kept trying me to give them my account # or where I banked. The man had an indian accent. When I told them I had no money and giving my checking account # would send me jail for bouncing a check on purpose, he changed his reasoning. Two minutes later 062 calls. I didn't answer because it doesn't exist and they have called many times with no answer from me. Maybe there is be a connection between the two.

I have gotten the 062 calls everyday for the past week. I do not answer if I do not see a name I know. They never leave a message. It is nice to know what they are.

I just got one of these 062 calls as well. I let the answering machine get it and of course they didn't leave any message. I'm thinking about changing my phone number. Not only because of this one, but I've been receiving a lot of suspicious calls lately from weird numbers and I'm on the Do Not Call list. It's really annoying.
