I was talking to some people in irc and turns out a few of us are getting the same weird calls on our cell phones. The number comes up as unavailable, no call back or anything possible. On the end of the line isnt a person, just a weird beep. To me it sounds like the noise a submarine makes. If you turn your phone off it leaves voice mails of the beep.

Myself and at least one other person with Verizon are experiencing this. But ive talked to someone else with ATT who is also getting it.

If youre also getting these calls, please post in here. If you don't mind, tell us your cell phone provider and about when the calls started happening.

I have Verizon. I get calls from a fake Bank of America recording saying I have an overdrawn account. I don't have a bank account with BoA. I also get calls from some Chamber of Commerce in Michigan wanting me to take a grocery store survey.

I have been told that Verizon cannot stop the calls about the BoA and that Verizon has hired this company to rack up your minutes.

I just started getting them about a week and a half ago. But right now Im getting 6-8 a day, all in the afternoon. Started to just leave my phone on silent until after 5.

I get those fake BoA emails, it's phishing. Duly reported to phishing@irs.gov & to BoA itself who had no knowledge of the scam.

I used to get calls from a machine with a British guys voice. It would always start out with, "Andrew Foust, this is not a social call."
I always hung up after that.

I have Verizon and I never get calls from anyone I'm not supposed to. At least not frequently enough to remember.

A few weeks ago, I kept getting calls from some number in New York. I called back and left a message saying if the calls didn't quit I would call the authorities. I have received no calls from them since.

Then start a cleaning business.

For me, when I see a number I dont know (i.e. not in my phone), I dont answer. If it's important, they'll leave a message.

I got the first one today.. I was taking a small nap, and all of a sudden i get a call from "unavailable." Whenever my mom calls from work it comes up as "unavailable." so I answered it, and since I was sleeping I didn't feel like putting up with people's ******** child games, so I hung up.
