402-572-7581 Stalker!

It all started one evening when I kept getting these creepy hang up calls to my answering machine from 402-572-7581 they continued for about a week or so, calling at all different hours. I figured whoever it was would get the hint and leave a message.. No such luck the strange, Erie and persistent calls continued.. Every time I tried to call the 402-572-7581 number back it was busy. Who is it and what did they want from me I kept asking myself.

After being a victim of a stalker for well over a year and that ended last year I was thinking could this be my stalker coming back yet again? Did she not learn her lesson from when she got caught? I decided to call my private investigator and put them on the job of who was behind the freaky calls from 402-572-7581.

As it turns out its a company that does appointment confirmation calls for many different companies to confirm anything from Furniture deliveries to your cable guy coming to your house. So if your getting strange calls from 402-572-7581 it really is nothing to worry about. I would think they should at least tweak their system to leave a message about what they are calling about instead of leaving no message at all.. This company is clearly creating a nuisance from all the people asking about 402-572-7581 on the Internet. Cant anyone put a regulation in place so the owners are required to leave a message from 402-572-7581 so people don't freak out.

As the previous 2 peeps said, thanks for the info. I got several calls from the same 402 number today, and since people stopped stalking me years ago I figure it's probably the cable guy who's supposed to stop by tomorrow. Thanks for doing the investigating for us.

I just Googled this number and this thread popped up. Thanks for the information. I couldn't figure out who it was and it was driving me nuts.

Just got this number on my cell. I'm filing a complaint with the Attorney General's Office in Nebraska. Any suggestions?

Woohoo said...

Ha, I'm in the same boat as the other commenters - got a call on my cell, used google to see if I could get a reverse lookup, and found your site. All hail the Internet.

All hail the internet indeed. The only difference from the above posts, is they actually left me a voicemail so I knew who it actually was. Of course, I got no answer when I picked up. It took me ignoring it to get my answer. Morons.

Thanks again!

oh goodness. I missed the call and yes, it was busy when i tried to call back. After googling the area code, I was trying to figure out who would call me from Nebraska. Then I googled the whole number and I found this post. Thanks for the heads up!

I, like many others, got a call from this number, had no idea who it was, tried to call it, busy, goggled it, this blog popped up, and as I sat here reading the comments, the phone rings again, same number, it was Florida Power and Light calling to tell me that the power would be restored by 6:45, even though it came back on 15 minutes ago!

morons.

Its amazing what you can find online. Well, I too have been receiving the calls ever since my furniture purchase. My only question is are the calls going to stop when I receive my furniture?

It's a for-hire call center in Nebraska. They do work for a lot of companies and "causes." Sometimes you dont hear anyone when you answer, because there's a delay caused by their use of auto-dialing equipment that doesnt connect back to one of their agents until after they get a live answer from you. Sucks to be them....

Since my cable guy came on Sunday, I haven't received any more annoying 402 phone calls. Thanks for the info!! I feel a lot better about it all now. It was really starting to creep me out.

This is just Comcast. I also did not pick up the phone but did the second time. I do not care for the system and we should complain to Comcast since their wireless goes down all the time and they were calling to let me know it was back up.

2008 and nothings changed. Thanks for the info!

What a great thread to land on when googling 402-572-7581. Just FYI, our message turned out to be from Kansas City Power and Light to let us know that a power outage was over.

naturalhealthrep said...

Ahh and so it continues...the phantom calls lol

I too wondered what the number was for after they called 3 times.

I think what people may fail to realize is that you may have asked for a call back. Like today when comcast went out, when i called they asked if i would like a call back to let me know when it was back up and that led me to this blog.

yes... I requested a call from Central Hudson in NY to let me know when the power would be restored. That was last night (Friday)... power was restored by 8.30 pm as they anticipated. Yet I received no call... until 6.45 am!!! Today!!! Saturday!!! Four additional calls received as well at intermittent intervals... ruined my Saturday sleep-in. Grrrrrr...
