Company calls me everyday including Sunday. Likely the Star Tribune wanting to renew my Sunday subscription. I will now cancel it!!!!
This company calls from several area codes. I tried calling back, but it rings and disconnects. Seems fishy if you ask me.
I suspect this call was from the Star Tribune wanting to renew my Sunday subscription.
Verafast called twice. Once on Saturday (08/07/2010) and again today, Sunday (08/08/2010). They claim to be representing the Minneapolis StarTribune Newspaper, offering free home delivery of a newspaper product available to non-subscribers in certain zip-codes only. The address and zip code data they had was not correct, and the phone number they called has been on the Do Not Call Registry for more than 6 years. Furthermore, I've contacted the StarTribune several times over the last several years and told them not to call me. So, they 'farm it out' and have their henchmen call me instead. Verafast is, in my opinion, a scam-artist company that hires people to make telemarketing calls from home to support the dying newspaper industry. This includes starting subscriptions, collections, follow-up calls, etc. To date, they have ignored my do not call requests, and I have filed complaints with the FCC at: http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm, and the Do Not Call Registry at: https://complaints.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx?panel=2. I can hardly wait for the political stuff to start ramping up....

The calls started 7/31/10. The Do Not Call isn't working. I am not answering the call because I have not given out my phone number. I do have the option of blocking the caller for a certain price but why should I have to pay to do that?
The calls started about a week and half or so ago. They call 8-10 times a day. One time it was well after 9pm. The Do Not Call list isn't working, there is no one on the other end of the phone, and it is daily. As I am writing this message, it is not even 11am and I have gotten 3 calls already. Anyone have any ideas on how to enact some "phone-rage"? It is getting ridiculous.
why do u keep calling? who are u looking for?
Hello this is a service verification. We will call you back later.
