DirecTv uses ER to collect bills, even when no payment is due. Keep getting automated message for my Mother, who hasn't been at that number for four years, and my Father who passed away a year ago, and was responsible for setting up the DirecTv account. Dealing with DirecTv directly is impossible,they are unprofessional and don't listen, so I turned the problem over to our State Attorney General. Meanwhile, DirecTv turned the account "problem" over to ER. ER is also associated with phone number 877-317-0948
for Qwest Communications, and 208-363-6015
DirecTv, Idaho. I doubt there's any realistic method to stop these calls, other than changing your telephone number.
