(303) 975-8858 :scam:

So for weeks now I've been getting calls on my cell phone from this number. The first time I had answered it and some guy said he was some Publishing Magazine company or something to that effect. After about 2.2 minutes into the conversation I hung up, because it just sounded like some sort of spam.

Every week or so they call again. I just dont answer. They never leave a message.

Finally today I got fed up and answered "Please stop calling me. Take my number off your list." He tried to interrupt me to explain who he was. I was like "I know who you are, JUST STOP CALLING ME." He continued... I hung up.

I decided to google the number just for the hell of it and this is what I found.

3039758858 - who calls me from 303-975-8858?

There were literally hundreds of links on google about this... so just FYI if anyone else gets calls from this number dont give them ANY info.

oh, it's not a scam though, they just want to check and see if your credit card number is lucky, if it is, you win a prize!

I've had weird numbers pop up on my phone before - I always google them and it's usually the same thing, some scammer.

I promised I'd give you the wedding of your dreams. Who knew your elaborate demands designs would be so expensive?

I do what I can to make such a wonderful woman happy.

At the train station there are always some dudes lingering around trying to get you to give money to some charity. They are really, really pushy. For two months I've been telling them I'm just a tourist
