    Question Strange Calls from Ames 450 number?

    Anyone getting some pre-recorded message from 5154502918 today? I have an Ames cell number with a 450 number so wondering if anyone else is getting annoyed with the same thing today too? Got calls at and 11:15am and 1:41pm today that start off with something like "there is nothing wrong with your account....if you wish to speak to a representative press one or to remove yourself press 3." I pressed 3 the first time but wouldn't you know I got the same call again nearly 2.5 hours later.

    That is your wife. She said to pick her up early or else.

    We seem to be getting calls from Salvation Army lately; despite never having had any contact with them previously. Some robo-dialer.

    Ha! Highly unlikely since I can't remember the last time she's beat me home and we work in the same office!

    No, but I love how the ISU marching band is now blocking their calls. I used to be able to just avoid them because I'd recognize the prefix, now they are just "restricted."


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Just to clarify, the people who call for donations for marching band 9 times out of 10 have no affiliation with the band. They are just people working at the call-center for Alumni Association, I believe. But yes, the calls are annoying!

    I have a land line that I use to signup for anything so I hardly ever get solicited for things on my cell which is why this number calling is a strange occurance. The Qwest Caller ID on my land line won't let a call go through without some kind of number so they can't pull that crap if they call me. If I don't recognize a number I don't pick up at home.

    I got a call from the Alumni association as I was about to head out the door for graduation ceremony. Thought that was rather funny, told them where I was heading and said "boy you guys don't waste much time trying to get money from us do you?"

    Just so you know...its the Iowa State Foundation that calls for the Marching band and for any other fund raising effort. The Alumni Association does not have a call center calling people.
