The caller ID only shows "OUT OF AREA", but I have TrapCall setup on my cellphone. However, the number was still masked even at TrapCall, so I answered it. Guess who - effin' MIDWEST PUBLISHING COMPANY, scam artists extraordinaire. They claim to solicit "charitable" donations for dozens of non-profits, including Narcotics Officers Association, Firemen's Charitable Fund, etc. I told them to stop calling me for the millionth time and hung up. I have *repeatedly* told them not to call me for ANY charity, fundraiser, or product they represent and to put me on their internal DO NOT CALL list. I do not donate to any charity over the phone, PERIOD. Yet they continue to call me, and it has gotten to the point of harassment.
They have somehow gotten my personal home phone number (though it is unlisted), and they call me all day long, from 8:30AM to 9:30PM at night. I blocked their number as well as any "anonymous" callers, so one of their asinine employees by the name of STEVE ROSZELL has taken to calling me at home all hours of the day from his PERSONAL CELLPHONE in an effort to get around my call block service. His cellphone number is 231-250-8006, so I'm guessing he works for the Midwest Publishing facility in Big Rapids, MI.
Here is a call history:
On 10/12/2009 they called me at 10:13AM and 11:47AM. The 11:47AM call is when I told them to stop calling me on my cellphone. Then the calls began on my home phone. On 10/12/2009 they called my home phone at 8:22PM, 7:43PM, 7:42PM, 5:27PM, 5:22PM, 4:56PM, 4:51PM, 4:50PM, 3:20PM, and 12:22PM. That's a total of 12 calls on 10/12/2009.
On 10/14/2009 they called me on my home phone number at 9:05AM, 10:13AM, 11:02AM, 1:05PM, 1:23PM, 1:24PM, 2:38PM (Steve Roszell's personal cellphone number showed), 3:17PM, 3:23PM, 4:10PM, 4:11PM, 5:35PM, 6:15PM, 6:16PM (Steve Roszell's personal cellphone number showed),7:38PM , 7:50PM , 8:58PM. On that same day (10/14/2009), they also called me three more times on my cellphone despite me telling them two days earlier to never call me again at that number: 4:12PM and 6:16PM That is 19 (NINETEEN!!!) calls IN ONE DAY from effin' Midwest Publishing.
Today, 10/15/2009, it started again bright and early on my home phone at 8:58AM, which was once again immediately followed by a call from Steve Roszell's personal cellphone number 231-250-8006) at 9:05AM. The tool is still trying to figure out how to beat my Call Block service. (Good luck, moron!) If that isn't harassment, I don't know what is. I'm seriously considering legal action at this point. I feel they will not stop harassing me unless I initiate a lawsuit! This is ridiculous.
