Dear Julia Sties what is your phone number and your cell number. How is your day going
I have sent the following email to DirecTV through thier web site. I also cancelled service a few days ago and the calls then started;
"I cancelled my DirecTV account several days ago. I am in the military and due to long deployments my wife chose to no longer carry DirecTV as I was the primary user before my latest deployments. Since canceling we have been receiving phone calls from 216-539-3622 with no party on the other end of the line. An internet search indicated that this number belongs to a marketing group related to DirecTV (please see http://whocalled.us/lookup/2165393622). If this is indeed accurate please have my number removed from the call list as soon as possible. It appears that many DirecTV customers have experienced this problem and I do not wish to have these calls continue. Thank you!"
Been calling me everyday on my cell phone (both phones are on do not call), Sunday included, sometimes well after 8pm. I've managed to pick up the phone 3 times so far, not once did anyone respond to me when I picked up. Why are they calling if they're not going to answer when you pick up?!
Now that I know that it's the worthless Diret TV people I will have fun with them! For instance, after they start talking I'll just lay the phone down. Or, I'll blow a whistle in their ears.....hee hee
no one leaves a message, I don't answer if I don't know the number.
this just shows up as clevelend oh. No other info shows up. But they are a pain in the ass and call each day. sometimes two or three times. i will not answer this call or any other call that i do not recognize number. I heard there are scams all over who call your house and get all your info on you just by answering the phone. So beware, beware, be scared that this is the kind of technology we have? Now all we have to do is answer a phone and they can get your name and private info? What are phone companies doing to stop this harassment of nice normal folks like us who pay out the nose for telephones to begin with and need not be paying extra for stupid people who just feel the need to harass.!!!!!!
Like several other people on here I canceled with DirecTV and soon after an 800 number started calling me and now it is this number that calls every so often- they never leave voice mails.
they call every day and dont say a word.
I think that it is ironic that this sites page has a directv banner ad on it. HMMMMM.....
My fiance has been getting non-stop phone calls from this number. We attempted calling DirecTV and asking them to take us off their calling list. They were very rude, and very oblivious to anything we were talking about. Even the manager was ridiculous. I checked out the info about powerdirect and the lawsuit filed against them...
All I can say is these jerks have been sued before for calling and hanging up on people.
Check this out
Since October I, 2003, sellers and telemarketers have been prohibited from abandoning any outbound telephone call by not connecting the call to a representative within two (2) second of the consumer’s completed greeting. 16 C.F.R. § 310.4(b) (i) (iv).
So basically, what they are doing is illegal. If it does not stop, we will be speaking to our lawyer and filing a lawsuit. This is ridiculous.
I hate these people.

I just called the number back. Answered as Power Direct. Guy comes on and says thank you for calling DirecTV. I politly told him to remove my name and number right now. Let's hope that will end the calling from the past year...since I cancelled DirecTV. Will never go back for sure, now!
hanks for the information. I left a message on Mr. Delfino's voice mail asking him to remove my phone # from the Directv harrassment list. I also reported this information to the Attn Gen of Co., and called directv at 1-800-531-5000
and let them know I was on to their scam.
I'll let you know if the calls stop.
Daniel R. Delfino, currently (or recently) residing in Hinckley, OH is the senior most member of this group of telemarketers. Dan has been sued and had paid considerable FTC fines for previous egregious acts of this nature. Obviously he has not learned any lessons from these lawsuits (or maybe the fines were not big enough). Others on his management team include:
Nancy Korzeniewski, Chief Operating Officer
Robert K. Gardner, Chief Information Officer
Jim Loveless, Vice President of Sales
Nancy G. Horn, Business Manager
James Mann, Quality Assurance Manager
Matthew A. Mignona, Director of Client Services
Bill Weiss, Director of Education Services
My suggestion is that you seek these people out and that you forward calls from this number directly to their home phone numbers (they are easy to find with some simple online searches).... or better yet, call them or fax them at work:
power direct contact info
4805 Pearl Road
Cleveland, OH 44109
I saw the number on my new caller ID. I just got this number, and I registered on the DNC list. AND, I already have the biggest DirecTV package available. Weird.
Unbelievable!! This is really sad that these people call on a Sunday! I really believe that the Blue Laws need to be reinstated - especially for telemarketer's!! By the way, I too left Directv.
They keep call my cell phone ....
Continued calling, when I called the # back it was reported as "Power Direct" and I stayed in on hold for 5 minutes before hanging up.
keeps calling and hanging up
I too recently cancelled my Directv service. Need to save money. Their not going to waste my time with their propaganda, their service sucked and I'm glad I have this website to identify their number so that I can ignore their calls.
This was from Direct TV. The first time there was a dial tone by the time I answered. The second call included a conversation that should have ended in "What part of NO do you not understand?" I felt I was scoled as a child for making my own decision on TV services.
Power direct is a marketing firm outsourced by direcTV.
I think this is harrassment for canceling their service.
called back and get automated voice for Power Direct.
Recorded message.... important call about my credit card. Also got a call less then half an hour ago that hung up.... 216-539-3622
. Wonder if there is a connection. Seems like once one starts we get a lot of them. All calls I get I'm reporting on the National Do Not Call Registry now.
Directv aparently, the b-holes call and hag up on me.
Looks like a lot of us have cancelled Diredt TV due to their stupidity. Now that I have a DVR with Dish, and Direct has made me so angry, I know I'll never go back. Thanks for the into,
IJ'm tired of your hang up calls. Quit bothering me.
This number IS direct TV I called it back and they tryed to get me back
It's directv trying to get you back to sign up with them!
I dont know if this will help, but I did use to have their service. Had to cancel when we moved to a rental. I just told them I was still in the rental when they called me again and I never heard from them again until now. My rental home was almost 2 years ago so at least that excuse got rid of them for 2 years!
Jo Jo again May 18th, 2007
I called the number back and it says "Power Direct" please hold for the next available rep. I didnt hold, I hung up :)
Same thing everyday no message and if you answer they hang up this was after we got a new phone number and had it unlisted what a joke that is.
Located in Cleveland OH. Calling for Win Back Dept on behalf of DirecTv. Called after 9PM, violating subpart L of TCPA.
Just rec'd my first call from this #. Pulled up search engine to see where it might originate from and this sight pulled up. At first I thought it was an obscene call, but I am now thinking that it is a call like Leanne got, just a man snoring loudly.
direct tv calling to get us back to their service. showed up as Cleveland Oh.
Other than getting called again repeatedly. This number is on the Caller ID. Aren't we on a no call list?
Unknown name May 01st, 2007
got another call, just now...lol. Similar hang up incident as posted about before.
I've gotten five calls from this number in the past two hours. I'm not answering, just noting that it's coming up on my Caller ID.
well, they called back again just today just now. atleast this time they said what they wanted.
They asked for my parents (by name) told em they aren't home right now, and if I could take a message. Before the lady hung up she just said, "This is directtv with a courtesy call".
As posted by other people here, we had DirectTV previously, but cancelled it, so I guess they want us back :P
I just got a call from this number, I picked the phone up, but there was nobody there...wthin like 2 seconds I heard the click, they hung up.
We received another call on 4/16 at 1:55 AM
We received a call from them at 2:08 AM on 4/13
DirecTV calls almost every day after we tell them not to. Pretty incredible
Keep getting calls-found out thru rev.phone directory that it is Directv...They call and leave no message...now calling everyday and letting the phone ring once and hang up. This is harrassment and am looking into legal action.
Ticked Off Apr 04th, 2007
Wasnt home when they called. answering machine was someone snoring really loudly. sounded real.
Two days in a row I have had no name with this phone number and then hang up.
Office of the President
P.O. Box 6550
Greenwood Village, CO
The above address was on the second level response I received from the BBB in reference to a complaint I filed against DIRECTV. The calls finally quit but may have been because I forwarded them to their main sales number. Good luck!!! I had the time so I put pressure on these buttholes from several sources.

We've been getting calls from this number for the last week, and it's the same thing - when you pick up, they disconnect. Calling the number back also resulted in dead air. Upon Googling, I was taken to this page, where I heard about how DirecTV - we recently canceled, too. Just called DirecTV's main line - 1 800-494-4388
- and spoke to a phone representative who said she 'took the account off the promotional list. I see that one person created a VIP list and added 216-539-3622 to be automatically forwarded to DirecTV's sales department. Kind of like that idea!
Cable-viewer Jan 17th, 2007
I don't know who this is, there's never anybody on the other end when I answer it, but they keep calling. Sometime they call 2-3 times a day.
I continue to get 20 to 30 calls daily to my missed calls list on my voip phone from these idiots. They gave me an address of Direct TV, Customer Service, PO Box 6550, Greenwood Village, Colorado 80155-6550. If they gave me a valid address I have filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and recommend all people being harassed by this company do the same. I also set up a VIP group (very ignorant person) and had all incoming calls from 216-539-3622 forwarded to Direct TV's sales line. I hope it ties up their line so others will not be victimized by these butt holes in the future. I intend to file a compliant with the Do Not Call office tonight also.

We've been receiving 3 calls per day for at least a week now. Usually the phone will disconnect & we'll hear a click as soon as we pick up or within a few seconds.
We called DirecTV & were told that they're putting us on their 'do not call' list & we should not get any more calls from them. We got another one of these calls a couple of hours later. This time someone actually spoke! A guy asked for my husband, gave his name (I could only catch his last name) & said he was calling "on behalf of DirecTV". I said, " I was just. . ." CLICK! He hung up on me! I called DirecTV again & was told that this is not one of their numbers, but she was again writing on our account (which was cancelled a couple of months ago) not to call us for any promotional calls at all!
Got two more of the 'dead' calls today! Aargh!
Just to let everyone know. This 2165393622 is not DirrectTV. It is a telemarket company trying to sell DirrectTV equipment. I have contacted DirrectTV and spoke to several people in Sales and Customer support and they deny this # being theirs.
We've been getting calls from this number for several months, and the same thing - when you pick up, they disconnect. Calling the number back also resulted in dead air. Upon Googling, I was taken to this page, where I heard about how DirecTV - we recently canceled, too. Just called DirecTV's main line - 1 800-494-4388
- and spoke to a phone representative who said she 'took the account off the promotional list. Not sure what that did, but I'll let everyone know how well it worked in a week.
I too, had cancelled my service with Direct TV about a month and a half ago. When I answer the phone they hang up or when I call back, it says it has been disconnected.
The phone just rings and when I answer, no one is there. When I return the call it does not go thru. VERY RUDE of them.
I've been getting hang up calls from this number for a few weeks. I switched from DirecTV to Dish about 3 months ago.
They are driving me crazy how to you get them to stop !!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have received 15 attempts from this number on 1/10/07 and numerous other calls from this number. I called Direct TV and the moron on the line claimed it was not Direct TV but a telemarketer that represents Direct TV. Everyone should report this to the state and federal do not call report sites.
Larry Justice Jan 10th, 2007
This number came up unknown on my caller id, and I don't answer those. If it is Direct TV, I have told them no like 1000 times!
martin44849 Jan 09th, 2007
If this is Direct TV then it makes sense. We just canceled service with them and we have also been gettings mail from them. Annoying because they always hang up. They call starting in the morning till after 8pm. Can be multiple times a day.
Since everyone here says it is DirecTV, I called them at 1-800-DirecTV. The lady I spoke to said that she added my number to their own do-not-call list. I should know in a couple of days whether that worked or not.
Probably Direct TV. I canceled service a while ago & my cell was listed as my primary contact.
This number keeps calling my cell phone, since I read all the message, now I know its Direct Tv. When you need service from them they beat around the bush with you. Now that you canceled service, they want to call you. Whatever! Dish never went off on me yet.
I cancelled DirectTV a few months ago too - because they couldn't get a signal at my house anymore - so what else can they do? I just sent them an email threatening to report them for Stalking, Do not call registry violations and threatened a class action lawsuit - any one interested in joining it?
They keep calling and when I answer the phone they sit there and dont say a word. I can hear them in the background, and then they just hang up.If this is Direct Tv I dont even have it i have cable and I've had this number for 15 years.
they never leave messages but they call my phone 3 to 4 times a day, you cant even call the number back because it doesn't ring just dead air
Thanks for the information, this number has been pissing me off for weeks. Directv is ridiculous, their service sucks in in a hurricane state.
Thanks for the Info!
I cancelled my DirecTV service months ago and this number has been ringning off hook!
Now I know to continue ignoring it!
These people from Directv have called at least twice a day for a week. I called them yesterday and ask to have my number taken off their list, and they called again today. I am going to add their number to a call rejection service from the phone company.
Easy removal from their list. Send a e-mail to customer service requesting removal or you will contact the Attorney General in your state. Works!
Direct TV sucks!Leave us alone!
I have gotten over 100 calls from this number the last 1.5 months.. Call the number back and line has been disconnected. These people should be sued. This is DirectTV and as I look at it Harrasment..
If this is Directv-to bad.
They calling every about 2-3 weeks and than every day.I told them to do not call me any more and take my number out of calling list.I cancelled service with them about year ago
after many hours on hold and a lot of people all over the world. tonite I finally had a real person come on the line. I put my phone on mute and waited. it IS the sales dept. forget the do not call list. call the retentions dept @ 800-824-9081
and ask them to escilate this issue.
they keep calling my house every day. 4 0r more times of the day.after i cancel direct t.v 2 months ago.
I have been hung up on three times and am currently on my 6th person ON THIS CALL. do NOT Take "we put you on our 'do not call list' for an answer. that is a SALES do not call list .. this isn't a sale computer. keep going until you get the 'Retention' (ya right) department or the 'resolutions' department 'Aracely' was the ONLY person i talked to with a clue.
Hung up just as I answered.
been getting this call for the passt few days. I cancelled my DirecTV a couple months ago.
They call 2 times a day and never answer if I pick up.
when we answer, the call disconnects.
I am so tired of them calling several times a day and late into the evening waking me up. I will not pick up the phone on any unknown name. I just wish they would leave me along.
I've been getting calls on my cell from this number 3-4 times a week and have never answered. Now that I know it's Directv, I stored the number and set the ringer ID to silent. That's the next best thing to them not calling.
We get calls every evening between 3pm and 6pm CDT. I pick up and no response. I also called the number myself and its DirecTV Sales. I've also informed them multiple times that that my grandparents who had the account are both deceased and that we don't need or want their services. Service was canceled over 6 months ago, yet they keep on calling...
We answer, no response, then the call is terminated on the other end (originator). I suspect that this is a computer calling to see if someone answers, then it will tell some outfit that they can call at this time of day and get an answer.
Yes, I had a similar message twice. That is a normal message for the company.
I had the same message left on my machine yesterday.
Kyle Wright Nov 17th, 2006
Has anyone else had a message similar to this : Hey (whatever your name is) I'll call you back I'm at work??????????????
A. J. Roller Nov 17th, 2006
It is Direct tv sales dept. they like to call around supper time to harass. Do not pick up, enjoy your family dinner!
just canceled my service with directv...they've been calling for a few days. just called them back to verify identity
This number has been showing up on my caller id for the last few weeks. I also switched to Dish from Direct. Guess they can't see the writing on the wall.
I answer they hang up. I call back found out it was Direct TV and then the phone disconnected. Never had Direct TV.
These people are driving us nutz! They don't understand "no" or "don't call again" or "take us off your call list."
DirecTV is sure persistent.
Yep, this is DirecTV and I recently switched to DISH. Anybody have a successful strategy for ending these calls? VERY annoying. How does this not fall within the "Do Not Call" block?
They have been calling me everyday, sometimes twice a day and never leave a message. I didn't know who there were or what they wanted? It appears to have been Direct TV. I just cancelled service with them a month ago.
Have been seeing this number on Caller ID several times an evening for days now. Probably DirecTV as other messages indicate, since I also recently dropped them for Dish Network.
