Did anyone else get this? It did not show Facebook on caller id and was a woman who sounded okay, with an extension to call re our page as a business listing. I am not going to call back, just thought i would ask if you had a call like this of late?

I would presume it was someone who wants to get paid to create or "improve" your facebook page for your inn. If it's important, they will call back, and leave a more detailed message.
I've never heard of facebook calling anyone. If there is a problem, they just shut down profiles or pages until it is sorted out.

We've gotten quite a few and most of them are going to help us improve our page. I tell them we don't have one. They tell me they're looking at it. I say someone else must have started it then.
They aren't going to do anything more for me than I could do myself.

I got this call today from someone at "NetBiz" in their FB division. They called at 5:45 as DH was doing the last of 5 check-ins for the day and I was cooking dinner. They were none too kindly told to take us OFF their calling list.

No calls from FB but have had a couple of emails regarding my business FB page and they claim to be from FB.
Also received calls in past from NetBiz.... told them to remove me, calls continued for a month or more with me stating the same. Sometimes I wish for the old phones again so I could slam the phone down... That always made a statement!

Anyone still getting calls from Netbiz offering to put them on the front page of Google? I guess they must have gotten the ire of Google, because I don't see Google even mentioned on their page anymore. I guess they have moved over to FB instead.
I avoid calls from 503. I have asked them repeatedly to stop calling. It doesn't help.

I get calls purportedly from my cc company telling me there is NOT a problem w/my acct but I need to call this toll-free number they give or leave on my machine immediately. Nope. Not me. If they want me, they can put a real live person on the line.

We get those, too, and they drive me nuts. A certain someone who lives in this house insists we need to call back immediately.
A certain someone's phone privileges have indefinitely suspended.

That is so ODD. I have never received that call before... and yesterday that's what I got. A weird company telling me that there is NO problem with my account, press 1 to speak to an operator and 3 to refuse the offer. I pressed 3 and it told me I was opted out.
I don't usually get these kind of calls because I'm on Canada's DNC list. And besides, they would be in French if they were cold calls. This was in English. Dang if I know what they really wanted, but I wasn't going to sit through the spiel in any case. I wonder if it's B&B related though and where they took my number from.

I did call back the first time - it was a we may be able to lower your interest rate - I do not think so since I had just talked to the cc company myself (me calling them) and got a small lowering. I knew they were not going to lower more and I am not giving my cc number to anyone I did not instigate the call 0 INCLUDING finding the phone number myself. I do not call numbers handed to me.
Edited to add: It has nothing to do with the B & B - I have a personal card I use just for B & B.
