509-385-6790

Did you get a call or text from (509) 385-6790?

This number is on some kind of calling blitz today - three people besides me have gotten calls from it on their cellphones.

The area code is associated with Spokane WA, where it would be approx. 6:49am - I do not know anyone there, so my guess is it's one of those marketing "boiler rooms" - neither I nor the other three individuals answered the call. The caller left no message on any of our voicemails.

If you get a call from this number and can tell us more about it (without sharing any personal information), please do so in "comments" - if the cap'cha proves to be too powerful to overcome, log into facebook and leave the info in "facebook comments," okay?

    1. Same here in Texas. I got called this afternoon. Left no message. I got the same response as you did. What is going on with this? I had a similar call like this and they were calling every 2 hours for the past 2 days! Very suspicious to me.

  28. It's this spam cruise ship number. They used to call out of the 360 area code and now it's 509. It says "this is your captain speaking" and it's some scam about getting a free cruise sip. It's called me from many numbers. Last one was 360-461-4895.

  33. The call came to a newly issued work phone, so I played along. It started out with a fog horn and "This is your Captain speaking..." It asked me 10 questions in return for a "free cruise" to the Bahamas. the questions were very marketing focused; Do you have a home mortgage, Do you have diabetes, Do you have sleep apnea. they are definitely harvesting marketing data. I didn't wait to get my cruise.

  38. I live in Massachusetts and I got a missed call from this number today at 11:33am. I was in class so I could not pick up. They did not leave a voicemail. I do not know anyone in the Washington area and I found this really strange considering I googled this number and to my surprise there are many other people getting calls from this number too.

  63. I answered this call and it was a survey offering a cruise. I did the survey, waited to give my address and phone #. The operator said a whole bunch of things I did not catch cuz it was so fast. Then she said nothing. I said hello 3x b4 raising my voice "hello" then she said, " Nevermind, ur being rude!" then she hung up. I think it is possible that I did not really speak to a person, but that was a recording to sound like an operator.

  64. They won't stop! 3 calls a day for the past few days. They even call during weekends.

    I hear its for a cruise ship. I did take a Holland cruise a few weeks ago.
