Does anyone else get frequent scam calls from U.S./American Pharmacy?
My number is listed on the national do not call list. I’ve had the same cell phone number since middle school. I’ve never had an issue until last month.
I started receiving weekly calls from this US or American Pharmacy. I’ve asked repeatedly to be taken off the do not call list. They either yell at you when you do so or hang up on you.
When I googled this info, apparently others have had similar issues with the same people. They call from different numbers every time and they won’t take you off the list, even if you won’t buy anything from them. If you call back the number it says it’s disconnected. They are apparently using disconnected U.S. numbers to make calls all over. They are scamming people to send them money with the promise of sendingp painkillers in return.
Originally I was annoyed but it was no big deal. Now the calls are increasing in frequency to multiple times a day and it’s become totally infuriating. When they called today, I went along with their gig and pretended to be an old lady. I told them I would have to talk to my daughter and call them back. I was able to get the guy to give me a number and extension to call him back on, but when I googled the number it looks like that was a scam as well.
Has this happened to anyone else? What can you do?
The FCC has been alerted, but they aren’t using any consistent numbers so they are untrackable.
