I've located one of them - the pharma company works with multiple BPOs in India. Here's one of them - CONTACT US | Emerge BPO Services

I've been getting calls from US Pharmacy on my cell phone for at least 6 months. They call every week day, sometimes 2 times a day, from various numbers.

About 2 months ago I installed a free app called "Truecaller" on my android phone. As the calls come in I add the number as a blocked caller number. Now when they try to call, it just gets dropped. I've only had to add about 3 or 4 unknown numbers and now it seems to have just become something that brings a sly smile to my face when I notice the dropped call on my phone. They even tried to call me during Thanksgiving dinner! The bastards...

The app has some other cool features too. Truecaller has made me feel like I'm in charge of my own phone once again.

I also get called multiple times a day. I'm trying to track down any info anyone has about these guys. Lately, I've been calling back the one number that actually reaches their call center and I have to admit I've rather enjoyed pissing them off for a change. Someone on another forum said they are part of Evoke Technologies out of India, but I have no verification for that yet. The phone number that I found to call them is:

727.490.1293

If anyone has any verifiable information about this company, I would love to see it. Maybe we can get enough people to start a class action or something.

I have been trying to stop these calls for over 10 years. Now I just place an order and give them the number from an expired gift card. Every once in a while I get order, but usually they call me to say the card was declined. I tell them, "you waste my time, I waste yours". It doesn't stop their computer calling me, but I get a little satisfaction from it. Sometimes, I tell them that I am paying a ridiculously low price, and they go crazy trying to find out who is undercutting them.

Next time tell them you have your own lab, you make your own drugs cheaper and then ask them how many kilos would they like to order.

One person suggested saying the following as soon as the (human) telemarketer answers:

"It's done, but there is blood everywhere. I'll meet you in an hour."

Then hang up.

Default us pharmacy

I've been receiving literally hundreds of calls from various "pharmacy companies" in India for years. I've filed dozens of complaint with The FTC. To file a complaint with The FTC call 877-382-4357. But here is another suggestion to deal with this particular annoyance. Play along with the person calling you. Tell them you are driving and would like to call them back to make an order. Get an operable number from them and their website. Then hang up. Then call the Indian Embassy in Washington DC at 202-939-7000 as many times as necessary and give them that information and let them know how incredibly rude and unethical these Indian “pharmacy company'“ people are. I think if a lot of people do this something "might" get corrected somewhat. Please pass this info on to your friends who are dealing with this same incessant annoyance,

Welcome to city-data!!!

The BEST way to deal with these calls as I said before on this thread is answer the phone and say "Taco Bell .. John May i help you??" -- I have gotton rid of 4 or 5 of them that way...... (THEY THINK THEY HAVE A BUSINESS AND DONT RING BACK)

I get these, too - ON MY CELL PHONE! I can't tell you how annoying it is to get a phone call from a 206 or 210 area code in the middle of a meeting or while I am at work and answer it only to hear a person with a heavy Indian accent asking me if I "still take Cialis or Viagra". I usually get mad at them and tell them that I've never taken those drugs before in my life and that I have no problems there, just ask my wife.

It is EXTREMELY annoying to get these scam callers on my cell phone.
