Consumer Complaint: On XXXX XXXX 2017, I revieved a call from an unfamilliar local Area Code & therefore did n’t answer. After XXXX the phone # to no avail, I XXXX & called it back & found out it was ( also ) Transworld Systems Inc . They had already called before on ( XXXX ) XXXX so was this a tactic of Deception by the appearance of calling from a local #, just to catch the person off guard & get them to answer?? I did some research & found out that Transworld has NO Missouri offices & also that this is a Landline based in XXXX XXXX ( city ) MO ( just like I am ) & the # is provided by XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX ( XXXX ).
