UPDATE: CVS Won’t Accept You’re Not Stacy

Chapter 2

Wherein We learn It Is Not CVS Constantly Rapping Upon Rob’s Cellphone, Who Still Remains Not Stacy, But Rather A Scurrilous Online Apothecary Rooking The Hapless And Helpless, And So An Inquest On Rob’s Part Ensues, Revealing Their Fell Identity And The Mewling Cries Of Victims In Their Wake…


“Hi guys

I thought I would give you an update on my calls from what I thought was CVS requesting Stacy.

They hadn’t called me for over a week when I just received another call on my cell, again from the same people, (The number on my cell showed 703)asking for Stacy.

I responded “no im not Stacy, but can I ask who’s calling please?” and this is where it gets interesting:
The caller was judging by the accent Indian, she told me that she was calling from RX Pharmacy and that I “use prescription drugs and they could sell them to me for cheap and make me very happy”, she then wanted to know the name of the drugs that I use and she could quote me a price and have them shipped to me.

So obviously not CVS.

I requested some more information about the company but all she was willing to tell me is that the company is called RX Pharmacy, that they are based in Salt Lake City and are the largest pharmacy in the united states. After a bit more pushing she said that she would get me a supervisor who would get more information for me, but first I had to tell her what drugs I was needing and needed filled by them. So I pulled some random sounding drug name from the air, and she corrected me with Xanax, and asked how many I wanted, 50, 90 etc. I went with 90.

After a brief wait her supervisor came on the line, and a bit more prodding from me yielded their customer support number: 866-272-6256, but he would not give me an address nor their internet address, apparently I would get that after I made my order and received a “Shiny, Glossy magazine” with my order. It was at this point I told him this was a cell phone and not to bother calling me again.

So I then did a bit of research, and yielded the following:
http://www.rxlist.com/rxboard/vicodin.pl?noframes;read=83858 – complaining about the scam

http://whocalled.us/lookup/8662726256 – A lot of comments talking about the abusive number of calls these guys get, not only from this number but multiple others.

So it appears to be a scam, it also appears that I will get another call whether I like it or not, and im guessing these guys aren’t based in the US so ive got no real recourse to stop the calls other than attempt to block each new number they call with.
Well thats my update!”

    Well, it was a good follow up anyways.

    Older CVS customers are probably getting taken a Ganges boatload at a time.

  2. OK, so it’s not CVS– but the real question here is how did this RX Pharmacy get the guys number to begin with? Did they somehow acquire it from CVS? Given the timing and the nature of the call I can see where the confusion would have arisen.

  3. The_Truth says:

    Weirdly enough ive never brought anything from CVS more substantial than a pack of gum. Although reading down through the second link, someone mentions that apparently another RX companys phone DB was stolen.

    So if someone by the name of Stacy, had this number before me then that would account for it. It doesent account for the calls only starting up recently, when ive had the number since February.
    hmmm.

    (In case your wondering im the original submitter :-) )

    Thanks for telling about the whocalled.us website–I cleared up a couple of annoying mysteries on my caller ID with that site!

  5. AcidReign says:

    …..I tested the whocalled.us website with my own number. I’m listed, both in YellowBook, and in the Bellsouth Real Yellow Pages. whocalled.us didn’t know who I was.

    AcidReign, it looks like the only results you get for a number are what others have reported when they were called by it. So unless you engage in phone harassment, or someone’s spoofing your number, you wouldn’t get anything.

  7. Tankueray says:

    Damn, I was really hoping that the guy was stalking Stacy and that The_truth could get hooked up. I’m really disapointed that some company in India just made up the name “Stacy” and expected who ever answered to be her. What is this world coming to when you can’t get a decent stalking anymore?

    Contact your cell provider and inform them that your receiving harrasing phone calls and show them the date/time they come (from your bill showing the #s). They may change your # for free, but usually charge a small fee. Better off paying $15 or so and get your # changed.

    Call your state’s attorney general’s office.

    Here in Kentucky (where I just happen to work for the AG), we have an extensive prescription drug fraud unit that handles this very thing.

    Call yours and see if they do the same.
