Spam Phone Numbers

phoneEver annoyed by those annoying telemarketers or spam phone numbers? Normally when I get a call from a telemarketer I play around with them a bit to have some fun or I’ll politely ask them to remove me from the call list. If you’re nice about it, they usually are nice enough to cooperate with you.

Lately I’ve been getting a call averaging about three times a day from the same number. When I answer, no one is there. Then if I stay on the line for about 15 seconds listening to silence, someone will pick up and say “Hello?” I’ll respond back, “Yeah, hello?” Then they hang up. I’m putting this out there because this has been going on now for about a week and a half and I’m quite sick of it. The phone number is 971-220-1971. The 971 area code is from northwestern Oregon. To be exact it’s from Gresham, Oregon. The company, after my research, is SBC TELECOM, INC. – OR. The switch number is PTLGORYRDS0 and the number has been reported as a spammer from around 100% of people.

I’ve tried calling back multiple times just to get to the bottom of it but the number says it’s been disconnected. I did report them as directed by the FCC here: http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/do-not-call-list.

Where Do I Report Telemarketers or Illegal Calls?

Here is a paragraph from the fcc.gov site to also report this number or any other numbers. “Consumers can register on-line for the national do-not-call registry by going to www.donotcall.gov. To register by telephone, consumers may call 1-888-382-1222: for TTY call 1-866-290-4236. You must call from the phone number you wish to register.”

Leave comments on this article to report other numbers that are making illegal/annoying calls and I’ll keep updating this list. You can include a brief story of what happened as well. Either leave a comment or go to the contact us page.

The Yangtze River Turns Red in China

Yangtze River turns red golden river
The river best known as the “golden watercourse”, it sure isn’t golden right now. The Yangtze River has turned red and no one knows why.

The Yangtze is the largest and longest river in China and the third longest river in the world. That is pretty impressive except sometime yesterday near the city Chongquing, the Yangtze started turning red where the Yangtze connects to the Jialin River. The river was the most red by Chongqing.

Yangtze River turns red golden river
A lot of residents were taken back as to why the “golden river” was turning red. Some were out there filling up water bottles and taking samples to save it. The folks that rely on the river for their income with fishing and other industries just kept going on with their work.

Right now there are officials on the scene and they are trying to figure out why the river is turning red. It will be interesting as to see what sparked this red color to fire up.

The Yangtze is named the “golden river” because of the mass amount of rain it receives on a yearly basis. The river also runs through Southwest China’s biggest commercial and industrial center.
