Review updated:

Since getting a new mobile number last year, one that apparently had been owned by someone else who purchased from a pharmacy calling itself "US Pharmacy", I have gotten phone calls almost every day trying to sell me medicine.
The numbers are blocked so I cannot trace them, they will not give me any means to contact them. I have asked to speak to managers, to have their address, website, etc. They won't give it. Every time I explain that I am on National Do Not Call Registry and they are breaking the law - they say they will remove the number from their list and hang up. But then the next day they call again!
I want to track this company down and destroy their ability to bother people, just as they have bothered me every day for the last year - how do I do that?
I am determined to expose their obnoxious and illegal sales tactics, how do I do that?

    I just got their internal number and tested it.. it goes direct to them. If I post it directly, the system cuts it out... but just remember this my friends.

    TWO days ago they called
    Then they called FIVE times in a row
    The TWO days later
    I got THREE calls
    for FIVE days in a row
    then TWO days off
    Then the next day I got ZERO calls
    Followed by SIX in a row
    then after THREE days
    I got EIGHT calls.

    so, this is important stuff. Sorry I can't post THEIR PHONE NUMBER THAT I TESTED.

    Have fun everybody.

    They don't care about the law. They are in India and figure they are immune. "US Pharmacy" is actually a real legitimate business in Tennessee that doesn't do telemarketing, but these scammers use the same name. They also use spoofed caller ID, including "neighbor spoofing".

    The wouldn't stop calling me so I told them I was going to start giving them fake orders if they didn't stop. They didn't stop so I started ordering their crap using fake credit cards formatted to match real cards. They'd call back the next day and I'd give them another and then another, and make excuses for not calling the bank to authorize the transactions, just making them work long and hard for nothing.

    It turned out they shipped a number of the fake orders to some of the fake names and addresses, including Jeffery Dahmer and Arnold Ziffle, but since they occasionally asked for me by my real name, and I kept giving them fake orders, some of them came to my address.

    It finally worked. I made it so expensive for them to keep calling me, they finally stopped, but not before they made all sorts of threats. I recorded all of the calls and made some of them available here.

    I also wrote a book "Trolling Telemarketers for Fun & Profit" and included a chapter on scamming these scammers to make them stop. It's on Amazon in paperback and e-book

    Their new number is [protected]. I started calling them repeatly .. and after the 50th or so call .. they said if I would buy something, they would remove my number. I told them that if they didn't take me off, I would continue to blow up their line. After the 100th or so call .. I got a promise they would take me off. I told them that if they didn't, I would have my friends join me in calling their number. Try it, it might work ..

    I am also receiving these calls! I also asked my number be removed from their list, to no avail. So, what United States phone company allows them access to them to call! So it is time to contact the USA PHONE COMPANY, who is reaping the profits from US PHARMACY. I am all for A LAW SUIT against the PHONE Company.

    So anyone know an attorney in Texas, Florida, or any other state who would consider such a law suit...

    What I have done, since they filled up my reject/block on my phone is I just add each new number to my address book and list it as "XX" once I see that when my phone rings I hit the no answer button. they have been calling me for four years, sometime 25 to 30 a day. As of today I have 321 numbers set up this way just from them. Not very good business men...

    i have over 100 phone numbers that are blocked in my phone from these people. it does not matter they still call. once i called the number back and got the recording from a new york movie theater for show times. usually they hang up before you can say add me to your do not call list or remove .me from your calling list. that way they can claim that you never told them to. i even suspended my phone service for about a week thinking that the recording of it not being in service might work. it did but only for about 2 week then they were back at it. is it possible to even bring a class action against them if they are not in this country?

    I got a call for my work, they didn't ask for anyone specific. I told them they called and office and no one was interested, please don't call again. The same guy immediately called back and asked for my name and number so we could date. Seriously?!?!?!?!? There's no way I would give out my number to this guy, ugh!

    They keep calling my husband and me, I told them the truth, I just had my left breast removed and am going through chemo. I get all the drugs I need from that. And that I can't handle them calling 4 and 5 times a day. They say. They are sorry and quiet call then an hour later they are back at it. I really can't take it anymore, this is my 2nd round with cancer. Anyone finds a way to stop them, please let me know. Thanks

    Try four years. They first started calling me in early 2012. They'll call every day for a couple months in a row and then disappear for a month. They have called as many as four times a day. After about two years of this I put my name on the national and state no call list, both tell me there is nothing they can do when I report the calls. Physer says that they aren't legit. I have never purchased a thing from them and I give them the Simpsons address every time, 742 Evergreen Terrace, Springfield, MA 10101, and tell them that my name is Homer. Then I give them made up credit card numbers that are the same forward as backward, with a security code of 666. Then I tell them that I just gave them Homer Simpson's address and the devil's credit car number. I didn't start this behavior until about three years into trying to get them to stop calling me.

    They call me on my cellphone a couple of times a day, despite repeated requests to take me off their calling list. To combat it I have started to listen for them to start talking and then I use an air horn next to the phone to blast them. I don't know if it will reduce the calls but it makes me feel better. I have started looking forward to their calls when earlier I used to dread them.

    After repeated calls from them myself in the usual pattern of those who have written on this post, I asked them for a call back #. He gave me MY number. I told them that's my number, I want yours. He then said "You're going to order from us?" I said, no, I'm calling back to complain about getting these calls. He then said "Now you are being rude. F*** Y*** B****. I'm going to put my D*** in your face". There has to be an app to block "Unknown" calls from coming thru. That's my next task. Do Not Call registry isn't working here.

    Terminate US Pharmacy Jun 20, 2016

    Ditto to what everyone has said here in regards to the continuous harassment by US Pharmacy, Like everyone else I often receive between 10-15 calls a day from US Pharmacy who attempt to sell me various medications like Viagra, Cialis and other meds for E.D. Just like many here have mentioned I have tried both the nice and approach and not nice approach to get them to stop calling me but they continue none the less. I have been trying for many years now and I understand the frustrations felt by others who are also being harassed by these disrespectful ###.

    How can this company think it's approach of constant harassing sales calls to what they think are "potential" clients is a good business practice when clients have told them they will never ordered a single product from them under any circumstance? after all It has to be as big of a waste of time for the sales idiot as it is on us.

    I know one thing, I refuse to change a phone number that I have used for my business and personal use for almost ten years and I refuse to let these idiots win, there has to be a way to fight them back and to me that begins with finding out exactly what the "real name" of this company is?, where it is actually located (India?), the actual address, and the name of it's owners. I truly am not sure of how to obtain that info but maybe you guys have some ideas of how to approach this and get the info needed to stop these [censored]es? One thing I noticed is the sales people have no "guts" and when you get angry with them or question their integrity on the phone they immediately hang up, this shows they are weak cowards and can be stopped. I finally decided I had enough of US Pharmacy and it's unethical practices when they called me twice during the funeral of my wife's grandmother.

    I am sick of US Pharmacy and would very much would love to see people who have been harassed by these jerks unite together and fight them somehow. Let's not let them win and continue to harass us. If anyone can think of a way to ID who these culprits are and how to "get to them" from a legal perspective please post it here or email me, I am willing to fight and stop them from harassing and insulting us on a daily basis. I understand that this site might not be the correct forum to fight the battle but we can come up with other options like perhaps a Google Group, etc. to communicate.

    For years, I have been recording telemarketers and from time to time sending copies to the Federal Trade Commission. I have worked with two lawyers there and have signed an affidavit. A few weeks ago an FTC PR guy called to say that the following day the FTC was announcing a settlement with Vacation Station. Most of the calls I get are from Card Services (with numerous AKA's), and I have gotten about 3 calls from US Pharmacy. It is legal in 25 states to record the telephone conversation to which you are a party without notifying the other party, and it is expressly permitted under federal law, 18 USC 2511 (2)d. http://privatecitizen.com/ has information about filing lawsuits against telemarketers; it's a slam dunk - $500 each offense. Collecting from overseas might be problematic... AT&T has privacy manager for blocking "no number" calls.

    Nothing will stop these people.I have tried everything from the nice guy approach to yelling and screaming and saying things I can't write here. However there is a great free phone app that has worked wonders for me called "Should I Answer". Since installing this on my phone (Samsung s6) I have had zero calls get through from people like these. It works great and is behind the scene. A nice bonus is that if you like you can report a number to them and then you will help anyone else not get a call from them too! Sweet revenge! Think of it as a community based effort. There are various settings. I have mine set to also block unknown callers. Once in a while this might block legit call but legit callers will always leave a message (and the app does provide a list of numbers blocked with their rating) if they want to talk with you. I now have my phone back! Yippee!!!

    I have been getting these calls for years on my cell phone. I have even had them tell me I recently went to the doctor and was prescribed medication when I haven't been to a doctor in years. I'm willing to get the best of lawyers and put this too an end. I'm seeing that their are millions of people affected from these calls..I'd like to set up a fund that is secure and everyone donate a dollar or two to see if we can get this issued resolved. I've cursed, threatened them, went along with the scam, etc...I would love for this issue to end. What gets me most is when I ask 'who are you trying to contact?' Their response is 'you sir.' No ### dude! Lol. Anyway, let's getting this issued resolved.

    Thank you,

    I have been receiving calls from them as well. I have asked them to put me on their do not call list multiple times. This last time I was very firm with them in telling them not to call me. The person on the other end of the line is always male and has an Indian accent. When I told him to put me on the do not call list and stop contacting me he told me "you have to buy something from me first" so I told him "no, i will not buy anything from you. You will put me on your do not call list and never call me again." he said "Ok, I will put you on our do not ca-" and then there was a loud noise and the call hung up. This was very odd but since then I have not answered any calls that have been from them. Granted I have a lot of missed calls because people call me while I'm in class a lot.

    I am plagued by calls from these people! My only tactic now is to set the phone next to my desk speakers and let them listen to whatever is going on - from tv to opera. When I hear the busy signal, I hang up. Threats, pleading, asking to speak to supervisions do no good. I imagine a scene where these people are chained to their desks and only allowed food and water after making x number of sales. I have be able to block "anonymous" calls through AT&T.

    They are in India. Does anyone know how to say something like "I enjoy watching your mother duck on a donkey dick" or something equally offensive in one of the Indian languages (although I think most are raised on English with the distinctive Indian accent)? Or at the risk of offending everyone in America who is of Indian decent who is super nice and NOT calling me every day, is there some insult that is particularly disgusting to someone in India? If we all get together and start saying the same phrase, every time. Make it as offensive as we can, so they will complain to their boss to stop calling the numbers that say this, maybe we can change the tide? We must somehow unite.

    I tried going through the order process and asking them to wait for me, etc. "I have to find my credit card... wait... i'm still looking..." I keep them on the phone for 15-20 minutes at a time and then do not actually order. I was hoping it would cost them a lot to call me, but there seems to be no cost to making bad calls. So I gave up on that. We need another tactic. I don't have the time to do this 100 times, even if everyone on here did it as well.

    So... What is something truly truly truly offensive to someone who lives in India that I can say that might get them to actually remove my number out of anger or disgust? "Please remove my number" seems to be a compliment, or a request to call me back.

    I have been getting these calls for several months. I take the numbers that are callable (the ones that if you call back, it goes directly to them), and entering them into wake up alarms, and phonemyphone.com so that it calls them 10 times. I am trying to form up a denial of service system, where they will get spammed so much, that they won't be able to make calls anymore. Does anyone know of a website where you can enter multiple phone numbers and have them be called on a consistent basis? It is annoying having to go through and retype these numbers and the messages every day. perhaps you guys should do the same. the numbers that I have been calling are [protected], [protected], [protected], and [protected]. If enough people do this, and update the list on a consistent basis, these guys won't have the ability to call us anymore. You can download trap call (think there is a monthly charge), so when the spoof their number, it will tell you what the real number is, and we can add that to this database.

    As noted, through the years the number showing on caller ID has been changing. The most common one that has been showing recently is a single digit - '1'. The DoNotCall registry does not allow for filling such as short number as the originating number.
    As the calls are originating from outside of this country, if we were to get government help, it would have to be a collaboration between the U.S. and Indian governments. That means that both governments would have to care enough to work through this. Does not seem likely, at least not yet.

    On one call, I asked for their website. I entered it, and my virus protection blocked it because it contained a virus, something called 'Pharma...' . I cannot find the exact name now.

    Just got a call for the third time from them today...I decided to record the call. Decided to play along asking about singular, and then after 8 minutes 4 different people on the line figured out that the medication in question has 77 different countries it is made in and the ones they are selling would be approved by fda in the next 30 days. I stressed I only wanted mediation from the USA and we got to the point of them needing a credit card I told them I had to call them back and they actually gave me a number [protected] x 109. After I told them I recorded the whole conversation and I was going to complain to the senator, lol, for harassment the guy asked me if he was getting the credit card number or if he "was getting a letter to jail". Let's see if they call back :)

    The national do not call list will never be able to stop these calls bacause the system is antiquated. The reason we see many different phone numbers is because each person has gotten the number from Skype, Ooma, Magic Jack etc. And they have many.They are calling from were ever there is a wireless, wifi or 3g 4g connection. These sales people are subcontractors potentially calling from anywhere like a cell phone on Skyppe while riding their camel to the market. You can hear how bad the VOIP(voice over internet protocol) connection is. It is a work at home job being controlled by a company with a small foot print in another country. I know about this company because I have been taking their calls for over eight years and have tried every conceivable method of communication to get them to stop. Many of them know me by name. All we can do is block the numbers which will give us limited piece. We can't even change our number because they may have it as well. My choice is to block the numbers. I did use the built in Samsung app but it was not reliable, let many calls though and would only allow 100 numbers. I use an app called Calls Blacklist which works well once you add to it and build up the data base of phone numbers. I have nothing to do with the company who makes the app. Trust me I feel your pain. Happy Blocking!
