Calling continuously; changing call-from number
Katastrofee Feb 14th, 2010
Okay well whomever and whatever this is they are starting to big me out. They call from "Bills Repair" from "Fed Data 3113", "insider Events" and all sorts of other id's. I finally bit for about two secs and said sure i have debt....and then asked for a supervisor and was promptly hung up on! This needs to stop and i am researching my options because they call past the times allowed by state laws and I have pressed "2" numberous times to get them to leave me alone and they won't.
My personal belief is that this is contributing to identity theft in this country. What's the purpose of these calls? To sell something? So they call a hundred people and 99 of them get angry because it's unsolicited (or they're on the do-not-call list). Just one person bites on what they're selling. Isn't that how identity theft works? Phishing scams go out to thousands of people. One person believes they are getting a message from a trusted source, clicks on a link and responds to it and BAM! An identity is stolen (hopefully, that is all that is stolen). If I used my phone to do what these people are doing, I'd expect to get reprimanded. Apparently, these people don't think the same way I do. Here's an idea, though (and I apologize if this has been suggested before). They had to purchase their service from somebody. I have to pay for my phone. So why don't we penalize the service providers for selling their service to someone who uses it for, oh I don't know, calling people on a do-not-call list or, more importantly, IDENTITY THEFT??? I'm guessing the provider(s) won't do anything because that will affect their profitability. Reputable service providers should be able to cross-reference calls made against a do-not-call database. If someone uses a listing of theirs to call a number on a do-not-call list, they are immediately suspended from operation.
i AM AFRAID I LIVE BY MYSELF AND WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHO IS CALLING ME, AND WHY I DON'T BOTHER ANYONE
I`m on no call list,but keep getting strange unknown calls??
