complaint
I have received numerous calls from this number (7 calls in my caller ID from 3 Oct to 29 Oct 2006 and many more in previous months). The number shows as "Out of Area" on my caller ID. I listened to the complete message and talked to a live person. It's an automated DishNetwork Telemarketer.
When I asked to be removed from thier call-bank -- they hung up on me.

When I called back I get the "This number has been disconnected and is no longer in service" recording.

I searched the number in PeopleFinders.com. It belongs to an Eric Waddel with an alternate number of 213-461-9056.

I have been very frustrated with the calls from this jerk. I have filed with the FTC and Do Not Call Registry complaint. I did receive a memo back from the FTC that they are keeping the complaint on file at this time (probably meaning - sorry we can't do anything about it.) I will be following up that memo with a link to this url.

I recently changed our phone number and if it starts up again, I will file a complaint with the DA in California.

The calls come in from 11 a.m. till 9:30 p.m.

I'm sorry to see so many have had the same problems with this insane person.

If you're not going to talk when you call then stop calling all times of the day and night.

Zip 83704 10/29/06 Unknown 213-666-7676 Called three times, ringing about 6 times, with a 30-second space in between each call.I consider three calls on top of each other like that to be an attempt to be obnoxious.

Did some research. These individuals hail from the EchoStar Communications LLC based out of Colorado. They have a PO Box there 9040 Littleton, CO 80120. If you google the Los Angeles Dish Network Company you get 213-480-1926. They will put you on their do not call list. And you can get this mail info and others. Don't bother trying to get a supervisor. They will put you on hold and lose you in the system on purpose! Also donotcall.gov will not allow you to report the 7676 number as its not been active 31 days. So I'd assume they change numbers every 31 days so they can continue calling under the radar. You have to go to the FTC.org site to report these people. Also go to your state's attorney general. With enough complaints they will stop and if need be a class action can be filed.

I've blocked #213-666-7676 & several other numbers.

I get satisfaction by immediatly adding these nonsense calls to my SELECTIVE CALL REJECTION list ... My phone company provides this feature with my phone service. Local #'s can be added manually ... long distance #'s can ONLY be added by following the prompts after getting the phone call. To access this feature thru my phone service I dial *60. If your phone company provides this feature, use it. Check in your phone directory under Products & Services.

Although I get nuisance calls from new #'s, I am slowly, but surely, fighting back, as I have seven #'s on my list and the frequency of new calls has diminished.

we are on the DNC list and they called 3 times while I was on the phone long distance, says it is a private number. If I want to buy something I will find them, telemarketers is the last pitt stop before selling pencils on the street at least a pencil is useful.

I got 7 calls from this number this morning. Called this number back and a recording says this number has been disconnected. But i still get phone calls from them again today. It is apparently from Dish TV. They should be fined for making calls to a number that is not suppose to get calls from companys trying to sell something. Notified FTC again today. I am calling Dish Network today to tell them they are in trouble if they keep allowing this calls to happen over and over.

Same complaint as Ben, however 2 times in 15 at 5:14 and 5:30 on Oct. 18 minute period. Of course when you call the number back it has been disconnected. Wonder if complaining to the Better Business Bureau would help.

this company keeps calling from 2136667676, i got the same automated recording and when i spoke with a rep i asked her what time it was were she was, she just said "I'm sorry sir" and hung up. This call was made at 10:45 pm and the most recent one was at 9:15 pm. I calle the number back but I get a recording saying this number is disconected. We are also on the do not call list.

This is a scam! A couple conversations with them raised my red flags, so I called the company they said they worked under. That company says they know nothing about these people. Because I contacted them, they now know that someone is either A. using their name/reputation to build a customer base or B. using their name and are a run-of-the-mill scammer operation out for a bank card number. The company they say they work for suggested I contact law enforcement, because, either scenario, these are scammers in every sense of the word. When they call, the call comes in as Uknown Name at this 213-666-7676 number. When a rep called me on 3 different occasions, it came in as a blocked number. I am also on the national do-not-call list.

Today we received 5 calls from this number in rapid succession. The only ID was the number. When it was obvious that the call was being answered by the answering machine the caller terminated the call.

Dish has called 10 times in two weeks. Each time I tell them I am on the Do Not Call list and they refuse to help. The last call was received at 7:55pm PDT on 11-October-2006 and came from 213.666.7676. Upon answering the call was a pre-recorded message from Dish TV. There were no options for automatically opting out or ensuring they recognize it was a Do Not Call #. The only way to get help was to press a button indicating you want to order their satellite tv service. After pressing aforementioned button, a customer service rep came on the line. They stated they were unable to put me on their internal do not call list. I also asked to speak to a manager &/or supervisor and the person refused to allow me to do that.

I have filed reports with the FTC because of these calls. They stopped for a month and now they are starting again. I just keep filing complaints with the FTC. I also contacted my states attorney general to file a complaint. I don't know what else to do to get them to stop!

The "Satellite TV Company" called 4 times a week a few months back and then, finally stopped. Well, today it started again from a new number. Does anybody know how to make them stop?
