The last time I saw "PHILA DIRECT" on my Caller ID, I picked it up to find out who it was, as I have been getting 3 calls a day from this number over the past few days (lots of calls, but they never left a message).
I said "Hello" a couple of times, but all I heard was a very noisy room and someone talking about getting "nude pictures on your cell phone."(???). I dialled the number again (after *-67'ing, naturally), a recording said something like, "Welcome to the Philadelphia Inquirer. To be put on the Do Not Call list, press 1." So I did, and left them a message threatening to report them if they EVER called me again, and that I did NOT appreciate hearing about nude pictures on a cell phone...sheesh.

It's the Philadelphia Inquirer soliciting subscriptions. Apparently if you've ever bought a newspaper, they feel they have the right to call...

This ass hat calls 10 time a day, it's the Philadelphia Inquirer. They call at 10 at night, they call at 5 in the morning. I want to reach through the phone and beat this guy over the head with the handset. We tell them "WE ARENT INTERESTED, STOP CALLING". It doesn't work. They call again, I am calling the cops.

There was one week in July where we received about 3 or 4 calls everyday. It has stopped since then. We never picked up the phone and they never left a message.

They continue to ring the phone 10-20 times a day. I can not get this to stop. I am on the do not call list and I still get these types of calls. This number is horrible. I just let the phone ring. They do not leave any messages.
