Got a call this morning from a man identifying himself as a representative for GE. He said that GE made my home alarm system and that he could offer me a discount on my monitoring maintenance charges. He mentioned the name of the current company I use and that he could offer me the service for less. After a couple minutes of my asking how he got my number and that my alarm company has NEVER called me in 18 years, I suspected a scammer at work. I asked him politely to put this number on the "DO NOT CALL" list. I called my alarm monitoring company to tell them of the call and they say they don't sell my information and that they would trace the call. I asked them to let me know what they find. During that call the account rep said she'd like to offer me a discount on their service since we've been "long time customers". I said SURE! So there's a silver lining to this cloud!

Mr. Stuart, your caller does not maintain this site or this web page. Your caller cannot magically determine which numbers should not be called based on anonymous comments. You will not get compliance with your orders until you deliver them DIRECTLY to your caller. Whenever possible, a ''cease communication'' notice via USPS Certified with return card is the best route for suspect and illegitimate calers.

Stop calling me

That "MCI metro access transmission" is the access provider for the landline, not the name of the caller. Intelius shows this to be a land line in Philadelphia. My caller ID says "POWER BILL". I see from the map on this site, all reported calls are from within Pennsylvania. I think this call has to do with the Pennsylvania electric deregulation scheme, and there have been a lot of calls from all over to people in Pennsylvania recently because the rate will be re-set on September 1 (happens every three months).
These Scumbags call constantly and DON "T EVEN KNOW WHO THEY ARE CALLING.....I already SWITCHED to an Alternative Electric Company out of Lancaster in May of this year and yet the SCUMBAGS refuse to STOP CALLING ME USUALLY ATLEAST 3 Times a day!!!! I report EVERY CALL TO THE DO NOT CALL WEBSITE AND THE PA Attorney General....They need to put this bunch OUT of business!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
