The Scumbags are a Telemarketing company for a continuing adult education school and they called at all hours of the day and night and either hung up when I answered or they would ask for a different person. I told them to stop calling and they told me they would take my number off the list! Needless to say they never took mu number off the list. This went on for almost 4 months until I brought suit for harassment which they settled out of court for 40 grand after about 9 weeks of litigation. If they are harassing you, Don't let those Scum of the earth telemarketers think they can get away with it. FIGHT BACK!! Here's what you need to do. First, You'll need send them a Notarized cease call letter and make a copy to save. Then send it through the Post Office via signature confirmation so you'll get the the little card back with the persons name that signed for the letter and save that card too!! Then if that doesn't work, it becomes harassment at that point which is "OFFICIALLY ILLEGAL"! Now you'll need to record all of the calls for proof that you asked them to stop calling. Also, make sure you tell them you recorded the call only after you ask them stop calling and they agree to take your number off the call list before hanging up and keep all call records I.E. time, date the reps name etc... as well as copies of call recordings. Then make a harassment report with the police in your county as well as the county they called from and make a report the FCC. If the calls still won't stop, get yourself an attorney who takes harassment cases Pro-Bono because they are more apt to take your case quicker and they usually win 9 times out of 10! It worked for me and I never heard from them since.
