I keep receiving calls from this number, when I pick up the phone, I hear nothing and when I try to call it back it says it's a non-working number...?? I received a call again today at 7am EST - since I am on Disability due to Stage III Breast Cancer, I was sleeping but the call woke me, I was too slow and missed the call and they didn't leave a Voice Mail, THEY NEVER LEAVE VOICE MAILS!!! And I, too, thought it was against the law for any type of calls such as this, to call before 8am EST. After reading all the comments, they were VERY HELPFUL and I WILL be making a FORMAL WRITTEN complaint to the FTC today.

He said he was a federal officer asking for my credit card. I messed with him a bit and then at the end I told him my card # is FUCK OFF. He then hung up. Never ever give out your personal information over the phone.
Thanks for the info, I too am getting calls it's now 6:00 am and they are calling me, isn't that against telephone telemarketing laws? Either way they are now BLOCKKKED!!
I just got a call yesterday on my cell phone from this number from an East Indian man named "Andy Thomas" from "Medical Research Center".His phone was hard to hear so I hung up. He called me on my work number the next day...not sure how he got it. He asked me about my IUD device, which is a fairly uncommon method so I listened to him for a while. His phone kept cutting out, so I asked him to call me on a different phone. When we talked a second time he said that I may be entitled to money due to complications suffered from other people with IUDs and that a lawyer would be contacting me tomorrow. He asked me how to spell my name, which I did, and give him my email address, which I did. He asked me what my doctor's name was and which hospital I had the IUD placed and since I am not right in front of my medical records, I wasn't able to tell him. He said that was ok. He asked when he could call me again and I said he can call me after work (my boyfriend will talk to him this time) and he was like, "So you'll have your doctor's name and the hospital later, right?" I said 'yes'. I spoke to him purely out of curiosity and didn't give him anything other than name, phone and email. It seems like everyone else has been approached in a more hostile manner (threatening, asking for credit card numbers). I'm just going to have my boyfriend talk to him. Worst case is, I have to get another email address.
