These people call my house everyday I'm glad that now I have their number blocked a real pain in my butt.

I have been getting calls. Do not dispute the debt, just the harassment. Can not pay if there is no money. Have not charged anything recently as there is no money to pay the debt. Will pay when I have the money, but the harassment is unbelievable. I refuse to talk to a machine, if there is person on the line, I will talk with them, but until then, forget it.

same old crap. we don't answer if we don't recognize the caller id, and they never leave a message. that's MY next level solution!

I just didn't answer, and I don't answer numbers that I don't know.

They are a telemarketing company for newspapers and magazines. Click the link below to be added to their do not call list.

Two calls from this number so far. No idea what they want.

October 12th, 2011 sam TX

Got a call from them which I didn't pick up. The name 'Next Level Solutions' was enough to not take the call.

August 20th, 2011 CandyGal CA

This company has been calling me for at least 2 weeks. I never pick up. I just read Joe's comment from years ago where he said to view their addy at dial-nls.com that explains the company which is linked to newspapers. Now I know why they calling. I am late renewing my subscription to the SanFrancisco Chronicle by a month. I bet that is it. So eventhough they are more than annoying, sounds like a legitmate call. Off to pay my bill!

June 12th, 2011 chris AL

Called first time Sunday, 1:25PM, 12/5/2010. Whocalledme.com posters indicate this is the NRA who only call members/donors. Not/never have been a member, nor have ever donated. Interesting, though, is have received postal mail in the past from NRA; don't know why or how got name/address/telephone number.

September 8th, 2010 Skeptical FL

Why would they call you on a cell phone from inside a call center? Other "who called me sites" indicate that this is a scam to get your credit card. This number called me this evening. If it were legit they would have left a voice mail.

Oh, and I have never been a Verizon customer. They called my Vonage number.

SCAM!

Accent sounded like female from India. Claim was that she work for Microsoft and I had a terminal virus if I was using one of three versions of windows and to send them my computer. Thanked her so much for her concern but I would rebuild it myself.

August 10th, 2010 Tom NJ

Scammer with "Indian accent" called my ex-wife, tried to tell her that her computer had a virus and she should do what he told her to remove it. She told him what he could do, in very direct terms, and hung up on him.

July 8th, 2010 Terri NC

This was an unknown caller at 8:30 pm. I told her not to call again. Who knows if this will work since I am on the do not call registry and I keep getting these calls.

July 8th, 2010 nextgen WA

I used to work for Hearst, and I have an unlisted number, so I can infer that one of the jerks at the Chron gave NLS my number. Well, I just bought the best call blocker money can buy and NLS, and Outreach Associates, and all the other cancers on the body politic like them are soon to have to get a real job or suck on rocks.

This is just one of the numbers being used by someone representing Michael Jones from the Cash Code.
(Also 3214450709, 5126960768,7029524300, 2135145323) This is obviously a fulfillment company being used to pressure customers from several different companies into further purchases.

I purchased the cash code program and then promptly returned it receiving a full refund. Then the calls started, every day several times per day from several different numbers that always ring busy. I am being harassed on my business phone. These people are aggressive, rude, in your face, and relentless. I have told them from the very first call that they were not to call me again, and they will call back within minutes, and over and over and over again. One even had the nerve to threaten to sue me because I cursed at him.

AVOID MICHAEL JONES AT ALL COSTS!!!

I live in TENNESSEE & have never been to California or purchased subscriptions or ordered anything from CA. How did they get my CELL # and WHY THE HELL ARE THEY CALLING ME??? If I want to know what the hell is going on newswise in the great state of California for some reason...I have this free invention called the INTERNET to get all the damn news I want. I'm about to serve these asses with legal papers to pay for my cell phone bill if they dont quit calling! I get calls at least 3 times a day almost every day from these bottom-feeders. What a bunch of shit. I will take them to court over a couple dollars worth of charges on my bill, yes I will. If nothing else, to set a precedent with these asshole telemarketing companies.

These numbers are associated with a Justin Blake coaching program. *Beware* They tell you all they want is your testimonial after 6 months of one on one coaching, but in the process of talking to them they end up wanting you to invest a few thousand dollars.

I have received this call on my cellphone several times a month since February. www.whitepages.com locates this in downtown Fresno, and I know there is nobody who would be calling me from there. After learning this I assumed it was just a wrong number so I have tried to call back a couple of times. However, they're always busy.

April 27th, 2010 Donna A ND

Just called them, used selection #3 and placed my phone number on their "Do Not Call" list. We'll see what happens.

April 23rd, 2010 cj NY

These people called me. I have message from them saying they are trying to collect a debt.

April 14th, 2010 A J PA

These calls are annoying! call your phone carrier & ask them to block them, that will hopefully work. I get these calls on my cell number, I won't pick up, but I am going to call my phone carrier & block them!!!

April 8th, 2010 Wayne NC

This number called me 4-3-10. It was Verizon Wireless. They called to make a special offer on changing out my cell phone from the old Alltel to a newer Verizon model. She was very polite.

They call reporting to be "your local newspaper" When asked which paper, they said Topeka Capitol Journal -- which isn't "local"

March 21st, 2010 Disgusted TX

For the past 10 days including weekends I have been receiving calls from 559-457-0453, I do not answer the phone, they must be trying to seel me something otherwise they would leave a message.

March 18th, 2010 Nettie MN

Apparently this number likes to call me constantly even tho i am on the do not call list, both state and federal. I have read that this is some paper in california, i've never even lived in cali! i live in the midwest, they never answer when i pick up the phone either! Its so annoying especially since they are calling my cell phone!

March 18th, 2010 H. Medina

We have refused their serves several times and I have tried numerous times to be put on their do not call list and it never takes.

March 18th, 2010 Gerald MS

We answer and they always hang up...Grrrr.

March 18th, 2010 FUCK NLS MN

to Chris who is the manager at that company:
I am now working to shutdown your company. you will be out of a job soon.
I am talking with the telephone service providers now.

March 18th, 2010 FUCK NLS MN

I just talked with FBI agent about this calls.
he advised me to call pacific bell and att abuse dept.
everyone should call their service provider's abuse dept.
that will get their phone service turned off!!
Im going to be calling and reporting abuses to their service provider.
I hope they will loose their phone numbers and ability to spam call.
this is 100% spam abuses from that lame dial-nls company.

February 20th, 2010 Penis and balls MN

I work for FBI and I will take them out of business and stop them from calling you people!
They did called my personal cell phone. My cell phone number is on DNC.

February 4th, 2010 Jack AL

These types of scum bags hate answering machines. I NEVER answer the phone unless I check the called ID first. If I don't know the number or name I figure it can't be that important so I make them leave a message. Shit bags like these never do. They usually stop calling after the first one or two times. Try it.

January 23rd, 2010 nunya SC

Caller asked for me by first name and said he was calling from Verizon Wireless and gave a telephone number other than that which showed up on my cell phone.. Said my Verizon Wireless service was up for renewal within the month and asked if I was planning to renew.
Since this is a corporate phone, I told him that any renewal would take place by corporate headquarters. I gave him no other info.
He thanked me for my time and we hung up.
From the noises in the background it seemed like a call center.
Caller was not rude.
Seemed legit.

January 11th, 2010 MJ TN

It will not stop guys. My advice is change your number if you can. They have been calling me since Nov.2007 when i quit paying them. It's now 2010.

December 26th, 2009 jane NY

O.k. I admit 2 days late with my payment, but the next day they are on the phone calling. All these banks bailed out with MY tax money are charging criminal interest rates and allowed to do it. How about a bailout for us, I don't mean take away my debt but there should be a cap on how much these crooks can charge us interest, seems some of the percentage rates are criminal. How about making our credit card payments more managable and they wouldn't have to waste money making so many stupid phone calls and paying so many people to harass us.

December 21st, 2009 Spike CA

I have had calls from this number anywhere from 6:30am to 11:30pm. There is never anyone there. I've asked that a block be put on this number.

December 7th, 2009 Chris

I worked at this company for years, I'm now a manager. Next Level Solutions will not stop calling you. They don't care about the DNC, their employees are the ones that have to take all the bad guff when they call the same guy 50 times. The owners are making a lot of money. Thats all they care about. Valentin is one of the owners by the way. The other owner is Nick. Guillermo is their top dog. "My boss" And dog is the right word for him. All three of these guys are liars and theives. By the way "torrezlove" Didn't I fire you?

December 4th, 2009 ADS OH

Caller ID listed number from Fresno, CA. I got a 2 second VM with lots of noise in background. No message. I called back number to find message from business named Next Level Solutions.

Shiti can kiss my ass! I was paying them faithfully every month as scheduled until they doubled my minimum payment. They won't get jack shit from me now. Already got a bail out. I'll be damned if they get paid TWICE! Not by me! They can eat dirt!

November 26th, 2009 blah AZ

How about you guys pay your bill and they will stop calling you! If you paid your bills on time like you are contracted to do, then they wouldn't need that bailout! They have every legal right to call you....look up FDCPA guidelines and find out the rights the government has given debt collectors. The only time they cannot call you is if they are calling a BUSINESS and you tell them not to call. If you lie to them and tell them it is a business and it really isn't they have the legal right to call you. Stop being deadbeats!

I received a call from 5539-457-0453. The company is Next Level Solutions. Its a telemarketing company. When they call you, their calling to either 'offer' their service to you (as a business onwer), or their calling in behalf of their clients.

This computer calls and leaves a message. I'm on the Do not call list and have been so it was my honor to report them hoping they get fined. Their direct number is 559-457-0450 if you want to call and direct a comment to a person there. Everyone on the do not call list that has been on it for over 31 days be sure to go to the Government 's do not call website and lodge a complaint against this company and any company that violates the Do Not Call order so that they can be fined. That is the only real way to get even with these folks and stop it from happening.

This company is Next Level Solutions according to Caller ID

I was ready with an air horn, but no person ever came on the line; the machine just hung up (whether I said anything or not).

I wouldn't mind participating in a lawsuit against them...I did file complaints about both numbers at FTC.gov.

Phoned twice on a business line which isn't provided frequently, once on a friday evening and the next on a sunday afternoon, outside of business hours. If they call again, I will pick it up to see who they are asking for and ask how they got this number.

August 26th, 2009 Jaimie OK

Hey I see alot of you are asking how to get them to stop calling you. If you google the number the very first result tells you exactly how to do just that. Its through an email service that tells them to stop calling. It works alot better than calling them back.

August 13th, 2009 Justin MA

A while ago (january) I signed up for a trial of STAMPS.com so i could get something for free then I cancelled it a week later. They called to try to offer me more benefits and to get me to join again. I just said "not interested" and that was the end of the convo.

Use YouMail.com which is a free voice mail service. You can set YouMail to 'ditch' calls from unwanted callers while letting your friends' calls ring through to your phone. It will play any outgoing message you choose (such as 'this is not a working number') and hang up without letting the caller leave a message.

They keep calling and not answering when I call back its for "Next Level Solutions". When I google it, they have so many different company sites and descriptors - all of which are vague enough to draw people in (help with real estate, help with employment, workplace mediation, etc). And too diverse to be real.

This number keeps calling and calling and leaves no message. I finally picked up on one of the calls, and no one responded. I have no credit problems and am on the "do not call" national registry. These @ssholes are really pissing me off...

May 17th, 2009 terriseay TX

This is Citicorp Credit. This number has literally shown up on caller ID 3-4 times EVERY DAY including SUNDAY- they are calling a business, not someone's home. If I ever manage to actually catch these guys calling I will inform them that my employees are NOT allowed personal calls at work & they need to cease calling. If you advise a company to cease calling you they HAVE TO- BY LAW. For every call they make after you have told them to cease calling you can sue for $500 per offense. Inform them of that..the will stop calling you. We use Vonage so I have a record of all numbers called as well as date & time of the call so I can prove their offenses. Read up on the Fair Debt Collection Practices Law and know how to FIGHT back- STOP BEING VICTIMS!! www.ftc.gov

AIGNewspapers are fixated upon $160 million in bonuses given to American International Group (AIG) executives. And it’s nice to know where the millions are going (note: the bonuses could have been cancelled had the federal government let the company go bankrupt, as officials should have). But where are the trillions in TARP, TALC and Federal Reserve Bank bailout funds going?

The man in charge of administering the bailouts is Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who served as a staff member of the New York City-based Council on Foreign Relations before being hired in 2003 to head the New York City branch of the Federal Reserve Bank (Fed). As the vice chairman of the Fed’s Open Market Committee, Geithner is probably a poor choice to get the nation out of it’s current economic mess. He served as Alan Greenspan’s number two man at the Fed, so Geithner is as responsible as anyone for facilitating the severity of the real estate and financial bubble and its subsequent collapse. After all, the Fed was the driving force behind the asset bubble, inflating the bubble larger and larger through artificially low interest rates and an inflationary easy-money policy.

Under Geithner and his predecessor (former Goldman Sachs CEO Henry “Hank” Paulson), the majority of bailout funds have been awarded to high-level donors to Geithner's former employer: the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

Here’s a survey of TARP bailout awards to the CFR’s corporate members (there are a total of only a little more than 200 corporate members at all levels):

Among the “Founders,” those who give $100,000 or more to the CFR, can be found:

* American Express Company: $3.389 billion TARP
* Goldman Sachs: $10 billion TARP, plus a separate Federal Reserve bailout and more than $13 billion of the allotment to AIG (below)
* Merrill Lynch: $45 billion through its corporate parent, Bank of America, which is also a CFR Premium corporate member, plus $6.8 billion of AIG’s bailout funds

“President’s Circle” CFR members ($60,000 or more) received the following bailout funds:

* American International Group (AIG): $182 billion in total TARP/TALF funds to date
* Citibank: $50 billion TARP
* Morgan Stanley: $10 billion TARP

Premium members ($30,000 or more to CFR):

* Bank of New York/Mellon Corporation: $3 billion TARP
* Freddie Mac: Sharing with Fannie Mae $1.25 trillion — that’s $1,250 billion — in mortgage securities being purchased from the Federal Reserve Bank
* Chrysler: $4 billion TARP, plus $1.5 billion TARP for Chrysler Financial
* JP Morgan Chase: $25 billion TARP
* CIT Group: $2.33 billion TARP

That’s a total of more than $1 trillion in bailout funds for CFR corporate members, easily the lion’s share of the total bailout funds awarded to date. CFR Membership seems to have its benefits, and then some.

So why is no one asking questions about why most of the funds are going to the former employers of our Treasury secretaries? Perhaps because many of the entities who should ask "why" are also CFR corporate members. Among the financial press, the CFR counts among its members Bloomberg, General Electric (NBC, CNBC, MSNBC), News Corporation (Fox, Fox Business), Standard and Poor's, ABC News, Time Warner (CNN, Time magazine, etc.), Moody's, and McGraw Hill (book publishers).

Somebody should ask the question why the same people who brought us this financial crisis are now bringing us the "cure," and why that cure necessarily involves financing former employers of the people making the decisions.

They call my work a few times a day and it never says anything. It's silent for 7 seconds then it hangs up. *shrugs* I don't know how to stop it. I'm already going toe to toe with the stupid car warranty place.

Next Level Solutions (per the above number) calls my home phone number at least once a day; sometimes more often. I have reported it since my phone lines are on the Do Not Call List. However, the calls keep coming.

This company keeps calling my work and they are annoying!!!!! annoying and i tell these idiots STOP CALLING that they cant reach that person here.. and they call 6 to 7 times a freakin day!!! STOP CALLING!!!!!! freakin losers have nothing better to do!

March 4th, 2009 ball_mich CA

Well, if this is Citi, that would make sense to me... about 45 days past due with them. I get calls from this number six days a week, and about 5-6 times a day. I don't answer them because I'm always at work when the call, or I somehow miss the evening calls. And they never leave a message. I've never tried to call the number back, as I figure it can't be too important, if they aren't bothering to leave a message.

March 4th, 2009 Pam NY

Two calls came into my cell phone this morning. (8:13 am & 8:58 am) When I answered it, it sounded silent just like one of those electronically dialed telemarketing calls. I don't stay on the line long enough for someone to respond to my "hello". If they are indeed Citicorp, clueless on why they're calling me. I have no credit card accounts with them nor do I owe anyone anything on a credit card.

This number came up as Missouri on my caller ID, they left no message. I've also had these calls come from Florida and from a toll free number. Lately, I've been getting collection calls for someone named Theresa I have told these people there is no one in this family named Theresa and I've had this phone number since 1991. And yet they still call several times a day. I just reported a bunch of numbers to the FTC because they did not take my number off their looking for Theresa list. I guess this one will go there too.

January 27th, 2009 NYer

Very aggressive. Calls 4 or 5 times per day, even on Saturday. Considering how Citicorp is getting Billions of TARP money from taxpayers, maybe they should ease up a little!

January 21st, 2009 JENIFER D. NV

The number is Citicorp Credit, they'e been calling me NONSTOP at my housephone and my mobile phone and they never leave a message; I lost MY job about five weeks ago and this is the first payment I've missed in 17 years; that CreditShield I pay for every month is useless. My payment amount was 398.00; I just got another statement TEN DAYS LATER AND THEY ARE ASKING FOR A $1600.00 MINIMUM PAYMENT. No wonder this company is going uder!

January 18th, 2009 G MO

This may actually be Citi Cards. I am passed due. But like most creditors they don't give a care. I lost my job due to layoffs in December. My employer is not expecting to bring anyone back till March. When I explain that to Citi they ask if there is anyone I can borrow money from to bring everything to current.

Their credit protection stuff is a joke also. You HAVE to work at least full time. My hours had dropped to below 30 during my last 3 weeks of employment, making me effectively part-time. Therefor I am not eligible for assistance through the credit protection plan that I have been paying for monthly.

Suffice to say when I go back to work one of the first things I will be doing is paying off Citi and getting rid of the card.

CITI CARDS NEVER GOING TO PAY THEM A DIME... COME GET ME... THEY ALREADY TRIED SETTLING FOR HALF AND I LAUGHED... YOU SEE YOU WONT GET A DIME OUT OF ME..COME GET ME.

I've never paid a credit card late, yet this company calls me several times each day. They're looking for someone named "Agnes," which is not me, yet they won't listen when I tell them no one at my number (which I've had for years now) has that name.

I called it back and they said it's CitiGroup Credit.
Very nice woman explained that they do this deliberately hoping to elicit a call-back.
She agreed that she'd be annoyed too.
I certainly was!

I live in Pennsylvania. They just called and asked to speak to my husband, but didn't leave a message when I said he wasn't here (he really wasn't). We are on the do not call list also.

July 26th, 2008 Joe CA

Update to my last msg. I answered the phone when Next Level Solutions called. They were calling for stamps.com. They wanted to know hoe many packages I mail out, how much postage I use, etc. Like I am going to give them that info. Now I have 2 companies to report to the FCC because I don't have any business relationship with either company.

July 22nd, 2008 Joe CA

Been getting daily calls for the past 2 weeks. I don't pick up & they don't leave a msg.
Here is their web site: www.dial-nls.com
I stopped subscribing to the Riverside, CA Press-Enterprise (pe.com). I assume they and the SF Chronicle are part of the same publishing conglomerate empire. I had a "business relationship" with the Press-Enterprise, not with these clowns, so I will call my ex (paper) and complain if they are responsible and will file a complaint with the FCC. In the meantime, since I have no social life, I guess I will start messing with these guys when they call again like I do with the suits that show up at my door on Sunday mornings.

(813) 290-6001

I hope they don't start calling several times a day... What ever happen to the DO NOT CALL LIST. Does no one care anymore.

July 17th, 2008 Ashley KS

I've had a few late payments (whoops) before with Citi. They have always called from either New Mexico or Florida.

Today however I've had three missed calls from the above number. They never left a message which is rather strange for Citi and when I tried to call back it was some voicemail from some random fellow.

I have high doubts that this is actually a Citi number.

July 16th, 2008 Teresa Corcoran NV

The person, Scott, I believe was his name, said I purchased an online business opportunity E-Book for $197.00. I did not. I did place an order for something online for $97.00, it was not a business opportunity.

I told the fella I would be reporting him and the Angela Christianson company to the FTC filing a formal complaint and if they try to charge my card I will report it to the police. He hung up.

From reading the other comments, it seems that it's EITHER Verizon calling to actually track a delinquent bill, or it's something fraudulent. I hope nobody's given out their credit or debit card numbers over the phone. I don't really think it's honestly a delinquent bill, as my bill has N.E.V.E.R been late. EVER.

April 25th, 2008 Amanda FL

God forbid I get hit by a car, go into a coma, and not wake up in time to pay my cell phone bill. They called my cell daily and every single time my mother told them I was in the ER they still persisted to get this cash. Well, I am back now and am very happy to call CINGULAR my new phone company.

This may be a sham number from an organization pretending to be citi cards. They state that your account is past due, and want them to give them a bank account number to pay the bill.

March 13th, 2008 FrigginLimey NY

See also 904-954-1095 also from citi cards chasing a late payment. it's an automated call so wait a while to speak to a representative ............ if there IS one.

March 13th, 2008 Liz CA

Claimed to be some sort of management consulting company. American (New York type) accent. Guy was trying to be charming but it came out pretty condescending (I was bored and kept him talking for a while just to see where it went). Kept asking me questions designed to scare me. I got the sense that he was looking for old people to victimize.

I HAVE GOTTEN 5-6 CALLS FROM THESE PEOPLE OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS. WHEN I ANSWERED THE LATEST ONE AT 3:35 CST THEY HUNG UP ON ME. I HAVE CALLED THEM BACK 3 TIMES AND CAN NEVER SPEAK TO A PERSON. I GET A RECORDING SAYING THEY ARE UNABLE TO TAKE MY CALL. THAT'S FUNNY THEY JUST CALLED ME. THEY DON'T LEAVE MESSAGES STATING THEIR BUSINESS. I TRIED TO FILE A COMPLAINT WITH THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU BUT THEIR COMPANY IS NOT LISTED. SO I FILED A COMPLAINT WITH THE NATIONAL DO NOT CALL REGISTRY.

Calls regularly. I finally answered and they said they could give me a complimentary Wednesday/Thursday addition to my Fri/Sat/Sun San Francisco Chronicle subscription. I told them I wasn't interested, but they said they weren't selling anything and still aggressively tried to tell me about the complimentary issues. I hung up on them.

March 2nd, 2008 dustin NE

next time they call im blowing a foghorn in thier ears

February 29th, 2008 Bob

Buy a good police whistle. Answer every call that you get. When they start talking to you give them a good blast from the whistle. If they start to talk again, give them another one. They'll stop calling.

February 28th, 2008 Chika

Thank you for sharing the info, Lisa. I just called them at 559-457-0450 to remove my numbers (home and cell) today. She was pretty nice about it.

February 23rd, 2008 Raymond

Didn't answer because I don't recongize the number

February 17th, 2008 Ben AL

I have found a way to contact them: (559) 349-9797. A guy named VAL will answer... he is an employee(probably the sole employee). I found this via yahooing "Next Level Solutions Fresno California." Threaten him with a law suit and inform him if you are on the federal do not call list. I am still going to lodge a complaint! Lets fight back!

"Heather from Account Services" calls every day now. THE
FTC WEBSITE TO REPORT ILLEGAL TELEMARKETING CALLS HAS BEEN DOWN FOR OVER A
MONTH. Not that FTC did anything before, you understand. If Congress
people ever answered their own phones or looked at their own e-mail
(spam), they might understand the plague of BS real people have to endure
every day. How much did telemarketers contribute to presidential and
congressional campaigns? Why is "Account Services" allowed to carry on
their illegal business unimpeded? What would happen if YOU violated Federal
law 10,000 times an hour?

I said no thanks.. and they said "what.. you don't have it yet, you totally have to have this, it'll tell you like everything you need"

December 15th, 2007 Steve CA

December 13th, 2007 suzi CA

All you need to do to get these or any other sort of telemarketing call is to is to act like a pervert. Ask them what color underwear they are wearing, if they like to kiss, as for there name and office phone number so you can call them back to chat, tell them they have a sexy voice, say whatever you can think of in a suggestive way. If you harrass the employee then the emplpyee will put you on the do not call list immediately. A sexual harrassment lawsuit as an employer has a lot more teeth then a couple people complaining about an unwanted phone call. Acting like a perv is the best way to be left alone.

Thanks Annette. I decided to send an email to everyone on their contact list, even el presidente.

October 21st, 2007 Missouri MO

Next Level Solutions is the one who is calling. They called me a dozen times in the past 5 days. When you call them back they say to enter you number for the "do not call." There inbox was full. So I found there website at www.nextlev.com . There email is trainme@nextlev.com . They were calling my cell phone. For those that don't know, it's illegal for telemarketers to call cell phones. www.ftc.gov
Also the do not call list is located at www.donotcall.gov . They do except cell phone numbers. Good to everyone. I know I won't be buying anything from Next Level Solutions ever.

October 20th, 2007 Carrie CA

We receive 3 - 4 calls per day from this #. Glad to know we are not the only ones. I have called our phone company and have a block put on this #. We are also on the do not call list.

It's a marketing company that works with several clients. They called us to sell local newspapers. If you are trying to get off their list, the best way is to contact them through email.
