Pinnacle Financial, Craig? Aaaahh, that opens a number of options. The cease-comm works on debt collectors, too, but use one only if you're not the alleged debtor or the account cannot be legally pursued. Otherwise dispute and validation is the best response. In either case the collector can be told to quit calling. The FTC and several consumer watchdogs explain more.

Pinnacle? A collection Agency!!
The automated and sequential dialers favored by so many junk callers will never get ''the hint'' or ''the message'' on anything. Computers don't get tired and they don't need days off. If telecomm wasn't so much cheaper than other ways of being a pest, we might not have forums like this. You need to be direct and blunt, answer at least one call to size up the opponent, and often place your demands on Certified mailed paper to make them stick. Now if someone would actually provide a business name or category for this caller, maybe you can all get some informed help in silencing the irritant ... without resorting to the dubious arms race of call blocking.

...every day twice a day..will NEVER answer...don't care who you are nor will you ever speak to anyone here!! Perhaps YOU will get the message since, apparently, you like wasting $$ on phone calls.
...Every day, several times each day on two different phone numbers! Perhaps you don't get the message that we will NEVER answer your calls!! You can call for the next seven years....ain't gonna answer! BTW...it might even help you to leave a message (although I doubt it)!! I am NOT that curious!!
Why bother calling IF you never leave a message....well I guess that's because I won't call you back!!
Don't know who called. Rings twice but hangs up before I can answer.
