This is the phone number that appeared on my Caller ID when I placed an ad on Craigslist. It is to verify that I was the one relisting the ad. It was automated and gave me a five digit number to insert so that my ad would post. I entered the number and the ad posted. Not a scam as far as I know.

Total scam. To guys with Indian accents claiming to be Jason and Kevin Fernandez trying to get me to confirm a number. Said they were with the Federal Communication Commission wanting to confirm my number on the do not call list. Funny thing is that the FCC is American and I live in Canada.
As soon as I placed an add to sale some tires and rims I got this weird call. I missed the call but when I tried to call back it was constantly busy. I am sure that it is a scam from an person who has nothing else to do.
I forgot to mention it was an add placed in cl
Any business that calls and does not leave a message on voicemail is not a reputable business in my opinion. The person from this number is obviously up to something and that something is, no good.
Got that same call from a guy with an Indian accent saying that my restaurant will have a special health inspection due to complaints. had another call with the automated code. I guess i wrote down the code incorrectly because we had to do this all over again. finally, he scheduled the inspection for the following monday. the suspicious thing was that the call came in on friday at 9pm. the odd thing is that we are actually expecting an inspection and when i asked him questions about the nyc health department, he knew the answers. i wanna shoot this guy!
EXACTLY! Got the exact call about a health department audit he wanted to schedule for Monday at 6pm on a Saturday! He told me I would get a call with a code and it was Craigslist calling to verify a code. He called again and I read him the numbers. Will definitely be calling the CT health department on Monday to investigate this. There should NEVER be an announced audit of a business/restaurant!
