    Received another round of spam calls -
    from (661) 375-3050
    Weird how I get the call on my phone,
    and then the other cell phones in the house
    get the call during the day,
    and our cell numbers are not even in the same exchange
    or sequentially numbered ...

    People are getting calls from 786-879-6669 on cellular phones.
    There is a brief recorded message in spanish
    that tells you to call another number for a trip or car, etc.

    There are a few web articles that pop up on Google,
    but very little chatter in the newsgroups about
    how to combat this type of spam auto-calling....
    It seems to be mostly Sprint & Verizon users,
    but with number portability, it might be spreading.

    The only thing I've done with our Sprint phones
    is merely save the number with a name of "spam".

    I got that too the other day! I had one black caller with mutter mutter
    mumbo jumbo.
    And then two Spanish calls with yo queero taco bell or something (Sorry my
    Spanish is limited to "got back to where you came from" or "Stop or I will
    shoot")

    It was on my prepaid T-Mobile and I didn't get the calls because the phone
    was off.
    I guess my redneck voice mail doesn't stop them LOL

    Unfortunately, all you've done is identified the reseller of local
    service who has the block of numbers. They are not the ones making the
    calls - it's one of their customers. However, complaints to the company
    about the customer who has the line may result in some action against
    the customer if it violates the terms of service agreement.
