Scammers are currently making MILLIONS of silent / hangup / abandoned calls to random toll free numbers (OURS INCLUDED) in a scheme to collect Caller ID Dipping Fees
The volume of calls from some area codes has necessitated that those area codes be sent directly to voice mail in order to restore some measure of sanity to our day.  The scammers call from random, spoofed numbers at all hours of the day and night.  They know that most toll free numbers are owned by larger companies and are answered by automated attendants.  Automated attendants don't mind being awakened at 2am for a few seconds of silence.  They also know that most bigger companies will ignore the charges for short calls.  We try to personally answer each and every call and provide personal service to each caller.  Hence no automated attendant here.  Yet...

This scam originated with telemarketing where fly-by-night telephone companies would share the CID Dip Fee with telemarketers making hundreds of thousands of calls per month.  Do Not Call lists have severely limited the calls possible by legal telemarketers even though the illegal telemarketers ignore the DNC.  Now it seems that the scammers have decided to just collect the dipping fee without trying to sell something.  The calls cost them nothing...

We typically receive 10 or more silent / hangup / abandoned calls to our toll free numbers EVERY SINGLE DAY.   If you call our toll free number and are transfered to VM, you may be in one of those heavy call areas...  Please leave a VM.  We will receive your VM and respond ASAP.  Additionally, please send an email to the address above and/or call the local number.

If you have a toll free number and are receiving these silent calls, please join the yahoo group

We are working with the toll free number providers, PSC, FCC and FTC trying to resolve this scam but nothing is happening very fast.

Thanks for your patience,
