The phone is ringing, and I don't recognize the number, All Caller ID says is, "NAME UNAVAILABLE".
Please help me figure out who is calling and what they want
THEY CALL ME AT ALL TIMES OF THE NIGHT EVERYDAY EVEN SUNDAYS WHEN I ANSWER THE CALL THEY ASK ME FOR ALL OF MY PERTINENT INFO INCLUDING MY SS#. I REFUSED TO CONFIRM ANY INFORMATION WITH THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE IN VIOLATION
Might the name in prior reports above be a horrid misspelling of debt collector Pinnacle Financial?
Whatever the name, no collection agency needs to care about the federal DNC list. As non-sales callers, all debt collectors are exempt from filtering out any numbers registered on a no-call list. The FTC never kept this a secret, and practically begged you all to read the linked FAQ at registration time.

They do not care about the "no-call" list. They have many numbers set up in different states through different telephone providers. They buy supposedly past due lists from banks and credit card companies, some of the lists are anywhere from 5 to 10 years old. In many cases they have not been updated and they can not supply you with any details. What they are doing is illegal since they do not have any actual records.
