I have caller ID with an ATT&T phone, base set + 3 hand sets. ID shows on all instruments.  I let it ring until the answering machine kicks in completing the call, they are then charged for the cost of the call.It's their money so they can call all they want. The ringer can be turned off on the handsets but the displays still light up letting me know what's up.

Do not answer; do not call back.If you do, I believe that they will likely sell your number for revenue to telemarketing groups as a good, working number that the owner answers.  (Telemarketers pay good money for such lists.)The U.S. Olympic Committee lacks integrity and common sense. Just ignore them.I understand that the temptation is great to answer and tell them that you do not financially support organizations that send U.S. worker's jobs to China, but refusing to answer the phone and blocking their number is the best protest that you can make.Cheers!

For people wondering how someone could fall for a scam like this, there appears to be a biological reason why the elderly are more prone to fall for scams. It seems that elderly are far less likely to be able to recognize a scam, not because they are stupid or have been gullible their whole lives, but because the elderly have less activity in the part of the brain that detects risk. Also at an advanced age many people lean towards having a more positive view on life, and this can translate into trusting a scammer. Why do you think scammers are so aggressive towards senior citizens? It's because they know that they can be an easier "sell". So don't think Ingrid is stupid, she just may be more trusting due to a number of reasons, maybe some beyond her control.

Ingrid,Sorry to hear of your losses, And sorry there are so many ignorant fools making comments about your situation.  I understand totally what happened and how you feel.  These people that did this search for people exactly like you and steal from you.  My grandmother was constantly on their target list.  She lost her husband, My grandfather, who had done a great job of protecting her and managing the finances most of her life.  She had Alzheimer's and calls like this would come daily once she was identified as a good target.  We had to remove all financial information from her house since they called daily with scams that confused her and all she wanted to do is talk to somebody on the phone and they seemed so nice.Ignore the ignorant judgmental fools that judge you in this forum,  Most have no idea what has happened to you.  These scams are developed by people well versed in deception and target people just like you.  The responders so critical of you are from an era less trusting and are more conditioned to mistrust people.  There is nothing wrong with you other than you trust people and cannot comprehend the cold cruel word we live in today. Sadly, the people that commit these crimes are very good at hiding their identities, So I doubt you will ever recover anything,  I pray I'm wrong.  From now on, Do not share any private information or card numbers of any type with anyone but family.  If you are contacted for a "Deal", Ask the advice from family first.  I'm not sure if it is possible, but do contact a lawyer and see if you can put a lean on the timeshare so they cannot profit from selling it.Best of luck,  Keep in touch with the authorities for this matter and somewhere the people that stole you money may make a mistake trying to liquidate the timeshare and a real name could be reveled.  Change all your account numbers and prevent any billing you can.

I received a call from a company Great Vacations Marketing out of Wyoming and from what I could tell it was a good company, the person that contacted me was Wayne O., phone 702-. Once we completed the first transaction of $1,335.00 on the Capitol One credit card, I was contacted by an individual by the name Joseph M. cell: 702- with Great Vacations Associates and he told me that we would go into closing March 2nd and that they already had someone that put 20% down and I need to send him $2,499.00 for closing which I did to Timeshare Network Solutions at the above given address with a credit card check again through Capital One.Shortly after I got a phone call from a person by the name Jackie and she told me that there was another fee to transfer title and deed of my Silverleaf Timeshare of $1,305.00 mailed to T.N.S.T at SE 18th Ave. Pompano Beach, FL 33060 gave me her FedEx account # 111069980. By that time, I am really concerned, well the 2nd came and went and no phone calls or check etc.Tried calling all phone numbers I had, three were no longer working and the other two no response only voice mail, tried the fax 407- no longer working, therefore I filed a police report with local Police case #HC10-29308 contact person Officer G.J. H. Unit 4C48 phone: 281-, filed a complaint with Wyoming BBB, a complaint with Attorney General in Florida by mail and a complaint with the BBB in Southern Florida.The total scam cost me $5,139.00. I contacted Capitol One and requested a new credit card and I just received notice that they can not find any fraud/scam not a surprise from this company since they don't want to cover any loss, contacted my Bank since I wrote a check for the last amount and alerted them of possible fraud and contacted Silverleaf in Dallas, Texas that there is no transfer of title or deed to take place that I was subject to a scam. I see that there is a report filed on 3/17/10 against Timeshare Network Solution in Boca Raton, FL. Right now, I am a very frustrated Senior Citizen and angry as a Hornets Nest. Please can you help? I may have lost the Timeshare that my husband and I own together along with some saving that my late husband has left me so my retirement years are a little easier. I work two jobs so that I don't have to depend on my children.PLEASE PASS THIS ON!  I was taken for an expensive ride...don't you do the same, please!

My husband received the same letter this two days ago. At first, we were really excited until he started telling me the details in the letter. They said he won 86,000 in some shoppers sweepstakes from shopping at Wal-mart, etc...Bull shi*! The name on the check was Nova Research Inc, in Buellton, CA.  The bank on the check was Montecito Bank & Trust.  We took it to a bank Saturday and the bank said the check was real.  The BBB of Alabama said that it was legit when read the letter but to call them back on Monday (today) so that they could check it out some more.  I was still skeptical especially after seeing this post and similar post about this company.  They wanted you to call them BEFORE you deposited the check and then FED-EX them the non-resident taxes in the amount of $1900.  I knew it was too good to be true, though, so thanks for your posts! We will not be taken in this scam!! Beware!!!!!

Reporting doesn't stop the calls, if you read the donotcall.gov website you would know that.Once they receive enough complaints about a particular number, they MAY launch an investigation.  Every report does help build a case, so keep reporting, but don't expect the calls to stop.  Also report to the FCC.  Then, if you have a smart phone, download a free app like MR Number and block the calls altogether!

Another way is to place them in your contact list under a common heading like "SPAM" and then set the custom ring to "Silent"... it works for me. I am adding 2-3 such calls from different SCAM-SPAM numbers to my contact list (SPAM) and then I never get disturbed from them again.

For people wondering how someone could fall for a scam like this, there appears to be a biological reason why the elderly are more prone to fall for scams. It seems that elderly are far less likely to be able to recognize a scam, not because they are stupid or have been gullible their whole lives, but because the elderly have less activity in the part of the brain that detects risk. Also at an advanced age many people lean towards having a more positive view on life, and this can translate into trusting a scammer. Why do you think scammers are so aggressive towards senior citizens? It's because they know that they can be an easier "sell". So don't think Ingrid is stupid, she just may be more trusting due to a number of reasons, maybe some beyond her control.

Ingrid,Sorry to hear of your losses, And sorry there are so many ignorant fools making comments about your situation.  I understand totally what happened and how you feel.  These people that did this search for people exactly like you and steal from you.  My grandmother was constantly on their target list.  She lost her husband, My grandfather, who had done a great job of protecting her and managing the finances most of her life.  She had Alzheimer's and calls like this would come daily once she was identified as a good target.  We had to remove all financial information from her house since they called daily with scams that confused her and all she wanted to do is talk to somebody on the phone and they seemed so nice.Ignore the ignorant judgmental fools that judge you in this forum,  Most have no idea what has happened to you.  These scams are developed by people well versed in deception and target people just like you.  The responders so critical of you are from an era less trusting and are more conditioned to mistrust people.  There is nothing wrong with you other than you trust people and cannot comprehend the cold cruel word we live in today. Sadly, the people that commit these crimes are very good at hiding their identities, So I doubt you will ever recover anything,  I pray I'm wrong.  From now on, Do not share any private information or card numbers of any type with anyone but family.  If you are contacted for a "Deal", Ask the advice from family first.  I'm not sure if it is possible, but do contact a lawyer and see if you can put a lean on the timeshare so they cannot profit from selling it.Best of luck,  Keep in touch with the authorities for this matter and somewhere the people that stole you money may make a mistake trying to liquidate the timeshare and a real name could be reveled.  Change all your account numbers and prevent any billing you can.

I received a call from a company Great Vacations Marketing out of Wyoming and from what I could tell it was a good company, the person that contacted me was Wayne O., phone 702-. Once we completed the first transaction of $1,335.00 on the Capitol One credit card, I was contacted by an individual by the name Joseph M. cell: 702- with Great Vacations Associates and he told me that we would go into closing March 2nd and that they already had someone that put 20% down and I need to send him $2,499.00 for closing which I did to Timeshare Network Solutions at the above given address with a credit card check again through Capital One.Shortly after I got a phone call from a person by the name Jackie and she told me that there was another fee to transfer title and deed of my Silverleaf Timeshare of $1,305.00 mailed to T.N.S.T at SE 18th Ave. Pompano Beach, FL 33060 gave me her FedEx account # 111069980. By that time, I am really concerned, well the 2nd came and went and no phone calls or check etc.Tried calling all phone numbers I had, three were no longer working and the other two no response only voice mail, tried the fax 407- no longer working, therefore I filed a police report with local Police case #HC10-29308 contact person Officer G.J. H. Unit 4C48 phone: 281-, filed a complaint with Wyoming BBB, a complaint with Attorney General in Florida by mail and a complaint with the BBB in Southern Florida.The total scam cost me $5,139.00. I contacted Capitol One and requested a new credit card and I just received notice that they can not find any fraud/scam not a surprise from this company since they don't want to cover any loss, contacted my Bank since I wrote a check for the last amount and alerted them of possible fraud and contacted Silverleaf in Dallas, Texas that there is no transfer of title or deed to take place that I was subject to a scam. I see that there is a report filed on 3/17/10 against Timeshare Network Solution in Boca Raton, FL. Right now, I am a very frustrated Senior Citizen and angry as a Hornets Nest. Please can you help? I may have lost the Timeshare that my husband and I own together along with some saving that my late husband has left me so my retirement years are a little easier. I work two jobs so that I don't have to depend on my children.PLEASE PASS THIS ON!  I was taken for an expensive ride...don't you do the same, please!

Reporting doesn't stop the calls, if you read the donotcall.gov website you would know that.Once they receive enough complaints about a particular number, they MAY launch an investigation.  Every report does help build a case, so keep reporting, but don't expect the calls to stop.  Also report to the FCC.  Then, if you have a smart phone, download a free app like MR Number and block the calls altogether!

Another way is to place them in your contact list under a common heading like "SPAM" and then set the custom ring to "Silent"... it works for me. I am adding 2-3 such calls from different SCAM-SPAM numbers to my contact list (SPAM) and then I never get disturbed from them again.

For people wondering how someone could fall for a scam like this, there appears to be a biological reason why the elderly are more prone to fall for scams. It seems that elderly are far less likely to be able to recognize a scam, not because they are stupid or have been gullible their whole lives, but because the elderly have less activity in the part of the brain that detects risk. Also at an advanced age many people lean towards having a more positive view on life, and this can translate into trusting a scammer. Why do you think scammers are so aggressive towards senior citizens? It's because they know that they can be an easier "sell". So don't think Ingrid is stupid, she just may be more trusting due to a number of reasons, maybe some beyond her control.

Ingrid,Sorry to hear of your losses, And sorry there are so many ignorant fools making comments about your situation.  I understand totally what happened and how you feel.  These people that did this search for people exactly like you and steal from you.  My grandmother was constantly on their target list.  She lost her husband, My grandfather, who had done a great job of protecting her and managing the finances most of her life.  She had Alzheimer's and calls like this would come daily once she was identified as a good target.  We had to remove all financial information from her house since they called daily with scams that confused her and all she wanted to do is talk to somebody on the phone and they seemed so nice.Ignore the ignorant judgmental fools that judge you in this forum,  Most have no idea what has happened to you.  These scams are developed by people well versed in deception and target people just like you.  The responders so critical of you are from an era less trusting and are more conditioned to mistrust people.  There is nothing wrong with you other than you trust people and cannot comprehend the cold cruel word we live in today. Sadly, the people that commit these crimes are very good at hiding their identities, So I doubt you will ever recover anything,  I pray I'm wrong.  From now on, Do not share any private information or card numbers of any type with anyone but family.  If you are contacted for a "Deal", Ask the advice from family first.  I'm not sure if it is possible, but do contact a lawyer and see if you can put a lean on the timeshare so they cannot profit from selling it.Best of luck,  Keep in touch with the authorities for this matter and somewhere the people that stole you money may make a mistake trying to liquidate the timeshare and a real name could be reveled.  Change all your account numbers and prevent any billing you can.

I received a call from a company Great Vacations Marketing out of Wyoming and from what I could tell it was a good company, the person that contacted me was Wayne O., phone 702-. Once we completed the first transaction of $1,335.00 on the Capitol One credit card, I was contacted by an individual by the name Joseph M. cell: 702- with Great Vacations Associates and he told me that we would go into closing March 2nd and that they already had someone that put 20% down and I need to send him $2,499.00 for closing which I did to Timeshare Network Solutions at the above given address with a credit card check again through Capital One.Shortly after I got a phone call from a person by the name Jackie and she told me that there was another fee to transfer title and deed of my Silverleaf Timeshare of $1,305.00 mailed to T.N.S.T at SE 18th Ave. Pompano Beach, FL 33060 gave me her FedEx account # 111069980. By that time, I am really concerned, well the 2nd came and went and no phone calls or check etc.Tried calling all phone numbers I had, three were no longer working and the other two no response only voice mail, tried the fax 407- no longer working, therefore I filed a police report with local Police case #HC10-29308 contact person Officer G.J. H. Unit 4C48 phone: 281-, filed a complaint with Wyoming BBB, a complaint with Attorney General in Florida by mail and a complaint with the BBB in Southern Florida.The total scam cost me $5,139.00. I contacted Capitol One and requested a new credit card and I just received notice that they can not find any fraud/scam not a surprise from this company since they don't want to cover any loss, contacted my Bank since I wrote a check for the last amount and alerted them of possible fraud and contacted Silverleaf in Dallas, Texas that there is no transfer of title or deed to take place that I was subject to a scam. I see that there is a report filed on 3/17/10 against Timeshare Network Solution in Boca Raton, FL. Right now, I am a very frustrated Senior Citizen and angry as a Hornets Nest. Please can you help? I may have lost the Timeshare that my husband and I own together along with some saving that my late husband has left me so my retirement years are a little easier. I work two jobs so that I don't have to depend on my children.PLEASE PASS THIS ON!  I was taken for an expensive ride...don't you do the same, please!

I went as far as giving them a Pre-paid CC# with no money on it or overdraft whatsoever, I will speak with these people tomorrow and supposedly finalize the transaction at which point I will be in contact with my card provider to determine weather they are trying to take money or give money, this may be a risky situation but I have nothing to lose (literally).

Right after I posted this, I called the number from another phone number, a human being answered, took my information and told me the name he was trying to call and said he was a collection agency and someone must have keyed the number in wrong. He apologized and said it would take about three days for the number to cycle out of the automated dialer, but after that I shouldn't have any more trouble. He was EXTREMELY polite and helpful. We'll see if the calls stop, but I have great hope.

The company is called Tek-Collect Incorp.http://www.tekcollect.com/Frontend/Content/Home.aspxThey are based out of Ohio.  Typically handle various unpaid medical bills, however they also do other service provided type collections.  I.e. Waste Management Service, College tuition, dental, banking etc.**They are relentless.**  They have anywhere from 40% to 96% recovery rate depending on the type of service.  They use tactics like, using multiple phone source locations to avoid harassment laws as one example.  Tacking on additional fees when legally allowed, (though not required), your bill can increase quickly.I had a $100 medical debt owed with them, after fees was over $240 and recently paid it.

Reporting doesn't stop the calls, if you read the donotcall.gov website you would know that.Once they receive enough complaints about a particular number, they MAY launch an investigation.  Every report does help build a case, so keep reporting, but don't expect the calls to stop.  Also report to the FCC.  Then, if you have a smart phone, download a free app like MR Number and block the calls altogether!

Another way is to place them in your contact list under a common heading like "SPAM" and then set the custom ring to "Silent"... it works for me. I am adding 2-3 such calls from different SCAM-SPAM numbers to my contact list (SPAM) and then I never get disturbed from them again.

For people wondering how someone could fall for a scam like this, there appears to be a biological reason why the elderly are more prone to fall for scams. It seems that elderly are far less likely to be able to recognize a scam, not because they are stupid or have been gullible their whole lives, but because the elderly have less activity in the part of the brain that detects risk. Also at an advanced age many people lean towards having a more positive view on life, and this can translate into trusting a scammer. Why do you think scammers are so aggressive towards senior citizens? It's because they know that they can be an easier "sell". So don't think Ingrid is stupid, she just may be more trusting due to a number of reasons, maybe some beyond her control.

Ingrid,Sorry to hear of your losses, And sorry there are so many ignorant fools making comments about your situation.  I understand totally what happened and how you feel.  These people that did this search for people exactly like you and steal from you.  My grandmother was constantly on their target list.  She lost her husband, My grandfather, who had done a great job of protecting her and managing the finances most of her life.  She had Alzheimer's and calls like this would come daily once she was identified as a good target.  We had to remove all financial information from her house since they called daily with scams that confused her and all she wanted to do is talk to somebody on the phone and they seemed so nice.Ignore the ignorant judgmental fools that judge you in this forum,  Most have no idea what has happened to you.  These scams are developed by people well versed in deception and target people just like you.  The responders so critical of you are from an era less trusting and are more conditioned to mistrust people.  There is nothing wrong with you other than you trust people and cannot comprehend the cold cruel word we live in today. Sadly, the people that commit these crimes are very good at hiding their identities, So I doubt you will ever recover anything,  I pray I'm wrong.  From now on, Do not share any private information or card numbers of any type with anyone but family.  If you are contacted for a "Deal", Ask the advice from family first.  I'm not sure if it is possible, but do contact a lawyer and see if you can put a lean on the timeshare so they cannot profit from selling it.Best of luck,  Keep in touch with the authorities for this matter and somewhere the people that stole you money may make a mistake trying to liquidate the timeshare and a real name could be reveled.  Change all your account numbers and prevent any billing you can.

I received a call from a company Great Vacations Marketing out of Wyoming and from what I could tell it was a good company, the person that contacted me was Wayne O., phone 702-. Once we completed the first transaction of $1,335.00 on the Capitol One credit card, I was contacted by an individual by the name Joseph M. cell: 702- with Great Vacations Associates and he told me that we would go into closing March 2nd and that they already had someone that put 20% down and I need to send him $2,499.00 for closing which I did to Timeshare Network Solutions at the above given address with a credit card check again through Capital One.Shortly after I got a phone call from a person by the name Jackie and she told me that there was another fee to transfer title and deed of my Silverleaf Timeshare of $1,305.00 mailed to T.N.S.T at SE 18th Ave. Pompano Beach, FL 33060 gave me her FedEx account # 111069980. By that time, I am really concerned, well the 2nd came and went and no phone calls or check etc.Tried calling all phone numbers I had, three were no longer working and the other two no response only voice mail, tried the fax 407- no longer working, therefore I filed a police report with local Police case #HC10-29308 contact person Officer G.J. H. Unit 4C48 phone: 281-, filed a complaint with Wyoming BBB, a complaint with Attorney General in Florida by mail and a complaint with the BBB in Southern Florida.The total scam cost me $5,139.00. I contacted Capitol One and requested a new credit card and I just received notice that they can not find any fraud/scam not a surprise from this company since they don't want to cover any loss, contacted my Bank since I wrote a check for the last amount and alerted them of possible fraud and contacted Silverleaf in Dallas, Texas that there is no transfer of title or deed to take place that I was subject to a scam. I see that there is a report filed on 3/17/10 against Timeshare Network Solution in Boca Raton, FL. Right now, I am a very frustrated Senior Citizen and angry as a Hornets Nest. Please can you help? I may have lost the Timeshare that my husband and I own together along with some saving that my late husband has left me so my retirement years are a little easier. I work two jobs so that I don't have to depend on my children.PLEASE PASS THIS ON!  I was taken for an expensive ride...don't you do the same, please!

Folks, be aware many of the short want-more-info posts may be scammer shills designed to drive negative comments off this first page. "Furious MOM" reports on page 3 that her son is being charged $9 every time you respond to the text. $265/month for a rent-to-buy home is a fake offer. A k$100 home might go for k$150 and take 47 years to pay off at $265/month - this is way too long and too risky for any lender. This is a fake offer.

They have called me several times today and yesterday. I called back and it is some auto warranty scam. I asked them not to call again.

They've called me several times in the past few days. If I answer there's no one there, and they never leave a message. I guess that's a good thing.

This number has called my home 15x's in 5 days.  Each time it will hang up as soon as I answer with hello.  I redialed this number and all I get is a recording stating "this is a long distance number please hang up and dial 1".
