Got one today from this number, did not answer. Someone should send all these posts to our senators and congressmen - only after THEY are harassed will they see how WE feel!

Caller was an automated message in Spanish. Seems to be a phone system because pressing a button on the keypad transferred me somewhere (didn't mean to). Hung up and called the number back - just got a busy signal.

WHEN THEY CALL ACT LIKE YOU ARE INTERESTED BOOK AN APOINTMENT AND SEND THEM SOMEWARE ELSE LIKE ANOTHER CITY, A VACANT LOT, POLLICE STATION, TO YOUR EX WIFES HOUSE ETC. (BE CREATIVE!) I HAVE DONE THIS IT LEADS TO HOURS OF FUN�FOR YOU!

WE DO NOT WANT TO ARGUE WITH YOU JUST STOP CALLING US OR YOU WILL BE SUED�.. (MAYBE IF ENOUGH PEOPLE SUE YOU AND YOU END UP IN JAIL YOU WILL GET THE MESSAGE) END OF STORY WHY WOULD YOU CONTINUE TO WASTE YOUR TIME PISSING PEOPLE OFF???? YOU WILL NOT MAKE MONEY THIS WAY AND YOU WILL ONLY MAKE YOUR JOB HARDER!!! (STOP BEING SO STUPID!!!!)

I AM QUITE SURE THAT IT IS ONLY A FEW INDEVIDULES THAT ARE DOING THIS THEY ARE MOSTLIKELY THE SPAMERS ALSO!!

(YOU CAN FILE WHERE YOU LIVE BECAUSE THEY ARE DOING BUSINESS WHERE YOU LIVE!)

IF IT IS A ROBO CALL YOU JUST NEED TO SERVE THEM! (THE COURTS HATE THESE THE MOST AND THEY ARE HIGHLEY ILEAGLE!)

WHY DO TELEMARKETERS CONTINUE TO CALL EVEN WHEN MOST PEOPLE DO NOT WANT THEM TO CALL? ANSWER (BECAUSE IT IS PROFITABLE!) THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOU THEY ONLY NEED A SMALL SUCKER LIST!

P.S. THESE FIRMS ONLY HIRE STUPID PEOPLE WHO GET PAID ON COMMISSION ONLY (NO SALE NO $$$$) SO WASTE THERE TIME AS MUCH AS YOU CAN....

Please Note!
As I have not had a chance to fully compile the list of every Small Claims Court in the United States yet, please visit this list until such time. If and when I get my list fully compiled, I shall be including a lot of extra data such as links to the applicable court rules and which courts allow the filing of claims online as mine does.
Suing Telemarketers - Simple and Cheap
When most people think about the process of suing a business entity, they naturally consider it a complicated and expensive process. They consider having to find an attorney who specializes in the particular area of law, the costs for such and weigh it against the potential gain. Forget all that when it comes to suing telemarketers!

For those individuals like me who have successfully prosecuted cases against telemarketing firms, there is little need for an attorney. (A cover-my-posterior caveat: I am not an attorney, so I cannot legally advise you. Whenever you are considering legal action, it is always advisable that you consult an attorney. Personally, I have never needed one when filing claims against telemarketers, but you may wish to consider doing so.) The key is that the best venue for filing suit against a telemarketer is in your local Small Claims Court. The only fees you must pay are the filing fees (varies upon venue and amount, but generally is somewhere around $50) and the fee to perform service of process (anywhere from $10 to $100 depending upon whether or not you have the court serve the telemarketer via certified mail or you have a law enforcement officer or other process server handle such). When the potential gain is thousands of dollars, what is a hundred bucks?

I have personally filed four claims in Small Claims Court against telemarketers. I have been paid on three of them (the fourth was against SBC and they gave me such a runaround on the process serving - BUT they stopped calling) that I let that one slide. Of the three cases where I was paid, the following were the results:

1. Filed a claim against a telemarketing firm based in Florida (Health Benefits Direct) for $1500. This amount was based upon two calls made after I told them to stop calling and their failure to provide me with a copy of their Do Not Call Policy. I settled out of court for $600.00 prior to the trial date.(Initial Cost to me: $55)
2. Filed a claim against a mortgage brokerage firm in southern California (due to settlement agreement, I cannot reveal their name) for $4500. This amount was based upon seven calls made after I told them to stop calling and their failure to provide me with a copy of their Do Not Call Policy and their failure to maintain a Do Not Call List. I settled out of court for $2000.00 prior to the trial date. (Initial Cost to me: $80)
3. Filed a claim against a mortgage brokerage firm in southern California (Country Club Mortgage) for $3500. This amount was based upon five calls made after I told them to stop calling and their failure to provide me with a copy of their Do Not Call Policy and their failure to maintain a Do Not Call List. I received a judgment for the full amount of $3500, plus $60 in court costs. (Initial Cost to me: $60)

Be careful. I suspect this scam may be after your cell phone unused minutes. I had a voice message on March 25, 2009 in my iPhone and I called the number back. It was in English and a female voice...something about a travel agency. It offered to remove me from their list if I selected option one, etc. Let's face it, I didn't book any travel and this was a huge red flag. I wonder if the FBI should investigate this individual in Idahoe. BUSTED! Never mind Homeland Security. This little town clown is in for a big surprise when he gets busted! He had better be careful, I might be the one arresting him. : )

Woman speaking in english told me that my phone was car warranty was about to expire. It suggested that I press 1 to speak to someone or 2 to be removed from the call notification list. After I called the number back on a secure line to 208-991-1199. Another automated message said it was a travel agency and that if I wanted to be removed from the list I should hit 1. After hitting 1, it asked me to give them my phone number so it would take that number off of the list. I gave them 911-111-1111. Hopefully they harrass the police so they get caught...

I get these calls sometimes twice a week. I cannot seem to be able to talk to anyone. They never answer back. It's always a recording in some language other than English. I'm not convinced that its Spanish but possible that it is. This time the call was from 208-991-1199 but a couple days ago the call came from 208-991-1198. A couple weeks ago the same type of call came from an area code in New Mexico.
