We have received multiple phone calls throughout each day over the past three months from your “company” (the minimum call volume is 3 – 5 per day, six days a week). If no one answers the line, the caller hangs up without leaving a message. If the line is answered, there is some foreign-sounding lady who says that we qualify for a “free subscription” to some dubious magazine, if we provide her with information about our business.
Invariably, the “free” magazine is nothing that we want or need, and usually isn’t even applicable to our business activities. However, the caller still insists that we should take the subscription, and tries to get the person who answered the call to provide company information (i.e., won’t take no for an answer; possibly trying to obtain restricted or sensitive company information).
Callers from your company have repeatedly been told to not call our phone numbers again. Those instructions have been completely ignored.
It has also been brought to my attention that your company appears to be using a technology that disables the call-reject and call-blocking features on our telephone security system. Use of such a technology might be a violation of federal law.
Formal complaints against your company’s activities have already been submitted to both the US Federal Trade Commission and the US Federal Communications Commission.
This email serves as formal and final notice that, effective immediately, your company is not to call any of telephone numbers at any time, for any reason. If you fail to respect this notice, I will file a civil complaint in Oregon District Court against both you and your company, and will request a judgment of $ 10,000 for each violating call.
I will file criminal charges if you, your agents, or any of your workers decide to retaliate by engaging in harassment calling, or take steps to "SPAM" our email system.
You should be aware that California and Oregon have a reciprocal “sister-state” agreement. California will recognize and enforce Oregon-court judgments levied against you, and there is a relatively simple process for collecting (involuntarily if necessary) judgment amounts from you.
