had to nerve to say f u after I asked him to stop calling my number. I have 50 calls from them on my caller id.
I am so tired of these folks calling about 3 times a day. I am registered on both the local and national do not call lists.
Yea they have another line phone# 616-980-2030
, take the phone outside while their on the line hold a shotgun a few inches from phone and touch it off,calls will end we where getting 4 to 5 calls a day having done whats above we have no longer received any calls in over 3 weeks
Called and asked if I had $2000 or more in credit card debt. I said maybe, and they hung up.
We received out first call from them today. Funny thing, we don't & never have had a Bank of America account. Anymore, if it is an 800 number, out of area, unknown or number we don't know, we don't answer the phone anymore.
do not want to leave my name. I am retired and will not answer any calls from numbers that I do not know. Please report as I am adding this to Government DNC list
Asked for my husband, then hung up when he took the phone.
Telemarketer representing Bank of America identity theft protection
I have been getting 4 - 5 calls a day from them. Despite telling them on numerous occasions to stop, they continue. I agree with the person below, there should be a class action for harassment against them. If BoA truly didn't contract with them, why aren't they doing anything to shut them down? They will cost BoA customers due to harassment.
thanks for the info on the 616-980-4030
calls from TN Removal Systems. They started calling me about 2 weeks ago 3-4 times day. I have caller ID so never pick up on these types of calls. Just innoying for sure.
Has called many times over the last week. Never leaves a message.
California Oct 08th, 2010
They claimed to be Bank of America and were asking me personal information to send my credit report to them. I didn't give it obviously.
Massachusetts Oct 06th, 2010
They call everyday continuous every minute for 15 minutes. Absolutely harrassing!!!!!!
Connecticut Oct 05th, 2010
They call repeatedly, early morning to well into the evening, including weekends. Never leave a message. Heck, I don't even know who AGI is! But I can't block 32 numbers.
wouldn't leave a message, has called many times.
California Oct 02nd, 2010
Left no message, so they are now blocked and receive an "out of service" tone when they call me, and then are hung up upon :)
But the idiots continue to call anyway. I say let 'em eat tone; I've got plenty to go around.
they dont leave a message, and when i finally answered one night at 8pm, they told me that they thought my identity had been stolen and they want to get some information to send me a free credit report. they wanted to verify my name, dob and address. i just hung up thinking that maybe it was a bogus call. I am going to call Bank of America.
Asked for my wife.I asked who was calling. A female responded Bank of America. Then hung up.
I receive phone calls from the number 616-980-4030 at least 4-6 times a day. Nobody says anything not do they leave a message. The number starts calling at 8:30 AM and calls up to 10:00 PM. To report it to the phone number to your phone provider every time you get a call as harassment is too expensive since it is $3.00 each time you report the calls. This has been going on for at least 7 to 8 months. It is a nuisance and I have come to the point that I just pick up my phone and hang it right back up instead of answering it.
Is there anything that can be done about these calls without it costing so much to the person that is receiving these calls. I tried reporting it to my phone provider as harassment and nothing happened as far as them getting it stopped. It just cost me an extra $50.00 on my phone bill because I didn't realize it was $3.00 per report.

Well, well, they called me FOUR times today. I thought that the telemarketing laws allowed them to call no more than 3 times per day. That's still too much in my opinion. I'm documenting everything, even down to taking a photo of my caller ID unit. I've had it with these people. IF Bank of America put them up to this, I am furious with BofA.
When they called, my caller ID said "AGI." The lady asked for me by name and said she was calling from Bank of America to offer me a free credit report that goes back SEVEN years. I stooped her at that point and said that my caller ID shows AGI, not Bank of America. She said that Bank of America contracts with AGI to call BofA customers because BofA can't call all of its own customers. LOL! Stupidest thing I ever heard! I said that I can get my OWN free credit reports at annualcreditreport.com that go back more than just 7 years, they go back at least 30 years. I ended up telling her that she is a ripoff and to go to H3** and hung up.
They call 3-4 times a day, leave no message. Has been going on for about 2 months. My wife finally answered, and they wanted to speak to me only.
Pennsylvania Sep 10th, 2010
When AGI calls from 616-980-4030: Pickup the phone and say "Hello". When they ask for Jon (Jane, etc.), tell them that Jon (Jane, etc) is just outside and you'll go get them. Then put the phone down and wait until they hang up.
This only took 2 calls before they got the message!
They call a few times a day, never leave a message. I finally called back after visiting here, pressed 1, and then entered my phone number to be removed from their list. The recording claimed that they had an offer from bank of america.
they call everyday dont know what they want no message??????????????
They've been calling every day for weeks now.

I am getting up to 8 phone calls a day from 616-980-4030. This is NOT Bank of America. I contacted the bank and they do not know this company. Under the Consumer Protection act passed in 1991 and updated in 2003 it is illegal for them to call you after 30 days once you request to be added to a Do-Not-Call list. Go to FCC.gov for more information. You may also add you phone number to the natioanl Do-Not-Call list at www.donotcall.gov.
This was also posted on the fcc.gov site:
"Some states permit you to file law suits in state court against persons or entities violating the do-not-call rules. You may be awarded $500 in damages or actual monetary loss, whichever is greater. The amount may be tripled if you are able to show that the caller violated the rules willfully and knowingly. Filing a complaint with the FCC does not prevent you from also bringing a suit in state court."
Check with your states Attorney General.
I am a Vet and work nights and I am a single fther of 3 I takcare of during the day. I explained this to them and told them to stop calling. hey have refused to stop the harrassment!
Needless to say after 27 calls in a week and a half 80+ in the last 3 weeks, I am filing a law suit against this company for not only violating the Consumer Protection Act but I will be seeking damages for harrassment for the large number of calls. If others are receiving the same number of calls as I am we should turn this into a class action suit and shut these people down!
District of Columbia Aug 11th, 2010
They call insistently. Even when I pick up no one talks.

AGI / BOA
Looked through caller ID and saw that I had received 72 calls from this number in the past three weeks.
Finally answered their call today and told them I didn't want whatever they were offering, and hoped that was the end of their calls. 2 hours later received another call from them, and told them I had already spoken to someone earlier and that I didn't want their services. Just now answered a third call from them today and asked that they stop calling my number. She said she would mark me down. We'll see.
I get four to eight calls a day from these people. Most of the time I am not at home and they do not leave a message. I have no idea of what they want and I don't intend to find out. I am screening my calls.
How do they get past the "DoNotCall" list? Call almost every day. No message.
Called 3 times today. I didn't answer. These people are real pests!!!
They have called our home over 14 times in 3 days. They only know my first name, and call every couple of hours. Last night thay called at 11:49pm. This is out of hand.
They call constantly I sppoke to them once and they gave me some bogus story about identity theft and bank os america. I called boa and they never heard of them. They call all day everyday!
how can i stop them from calling my home?
CALL EVERY DAY. THEY HAVE BEEN RUDE TO MY OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS WHEN THEY ANSWER THE PHONE. HAVE TOLD THEM NOT INTERESTED, ASKED THEM NOT TO CALL AGAIN. PUT MY NUM ON THEIR DO NOT CALL LIST TODAY- THEY HAVE CALLED BACK TWICE & SAID NOTHING. CALL EARLY AM & LATE PM.
I RECIEVED MANY CALLS FROM THE 616-980-4030 NUMBER LISTED TO TN REMOVAL SYSTEM STATING THAT THEY ARE CALLING FROM BANK OF AMERICA AND THEY ARE CONTACTING ME ABOUT A RISE IN IDENTITY THEFT AND NEEDED TO VERIFY INFORMATION. I REFUSED TO GIVE THEM INFORMATION AND I CALLED BANK OF AMERICA'S 1-800 NUMBER. THEY ADVISED ME THAT BANK OF AMERICA IS NOT MAKING THE CALLS AND THEY REFERRED TO THEIR FRAUD DEPT FOR INVESTIGATION.
They have called 6 times since yesterday morning.
Washington Jul 02nd, 2010
It appears private names,telephone numbers and perhaps more have been sold for a profit. Third party sharing may be the loop hole for this blantant violation of The do not call list! Check you credit card lenders.
Pennsylvania Jun 26th, 2010
Receive calls at least 2x a day in morning and evening.Picked up once and there was silence. If I see AGI on the caller ID, I don't answer the phone.
New Jersey Jun 25th, 2010
Just for fun, if you are working or living in an environment that you could do this in, answer the phone whenever a suspected telemarketer is on the line. If you hear a real human voice and they start their shpeel, hold a gas charged air-horn to the phone & blast them for a second or two! You can get them from amazon.com for as little as $7.00 for the 1.4oz can or under $30.00 for the 8oz which will last a very long time if used in short bursts. Refill 8oz cans are about $16.00. Free Shipping often available on orders over $25.00!
Even if it's a recording, wait and see if a human takes over the call or if there is an option for them to start recording you, then blast them!
Don't get mad, GET REVENGE!
called and asked for another name, I told them this was "wrong" number, there was no one here by that name, the next day they called again, again asking for no one we know, again I said you have the wrong number please stop calling, the operator said they would remove my number but it could take several days.
We get as many as five calls a day from this number. We do not answer it because we already know it is a harassment caller. We have caller id so we can see who the caller is - tn removal sys. A search on the internet shows many complaints about these calls. How does on go about putting a stop to these calls?
Wow! are these guys incorrigible pricks! Receive 3-5 calls/day in spite of being registering years ago with the national do not call registry. Filed a formal complaint about AGI with the state AG of Michigan. The address information you will need to report the matter to the state AG is cut and pasted from a post below. 4011 Plainfield Ave NE, Grand Rapids, Mi 49525. Caller id identifies the caller as AGI. Don't know with whom they're affiliated, but I have not had a B of A account in over 10 years and have moved twice in the interim. My current phone number has been registered with the national dnc registry since 2003. If this doesn't work, I'll next report these creeps to the FCC.
California Jun 17th, 2010
We have received numerous call from this number in the past few weeks - sometimes 4 or 5 calls a day. They never leave a message.
This number is used by Al-Quaeda to get bank account informatioM. DO NOT ANSWER AND DO NOT CALL BACK
South Dakota Jun 07th, 2010
Continued wrong number. I keep hanging up.
Call 4 times a day. I never answered and no message was ever left. My phone allows me to block calls, so that number is now blocked.
Massachusetts May 19th, 2010
they will not give up? ask them to wait a minute, put the phone down and walk away.
California May 14th, 2010
They call every single day 2 times per day. We have reported to do not call list and they still keep calling. Say they have a credit report to send for free. We have told them no repeatedly. They still keep calling. I think the next time they call I will just blow a whistle really loud into the phone.

press 1 to remove your # from their list
We've been getting calls from this TN Removal Sys at 606-980-4030
. At first they were daily, but now they have been upped to multiple times of the day at all hours. They ask for my husband, when I say he's not here they say they will call back. Always seems to be the same female voice. My husband did speak to her once and was so annoyed at the time she called (9pm) that he listened for about two seconds and then swore at her. She continues to call. Very annoying. We are on the National Do Not Call and do not get other solicitations. They say they are calling on behalf of Bank of America.
called several times- first time my mother took a message bc i was not home. they said they were calling from bank of america regarding identity theft or something. i called bank of america and they said they do not know why this person was calling and it was some type of scam, my account is fine etc etc. they called this evening and the woman told me she was calling on behalf of bank of america, i said "no you're not" she said yes ma'am i am. i said well how come when i called boa last night they had no idea about why i was being called. she then explained that they are a company boa hired to do this etc. she wanted to offer me a credit report or something - i hung up.
this is a scam company phishing to get confidential info!

Pennsylvania Apr 07th, 2010
Constantly getting calls from 616-980-4030 At least 6-7 call a day & night, starting at 9:00 AM to 1:00 AM. Caller ID says it's TN Removal Sys
Calls several times a day, starting at 9:01 am. Leaves no msg.
Here is the low down on these crank calls...Both 616-980-4030 and 517-933-2016
are calls that are made from Grand Rapdis, Mi and Coldwater, Mi.
When calling the number back you get the Order confirmation Department.
I used the reverse number system and found our where these calls are coming from. The parent company is called LUCRE INC. This company is a telecommunications company dealing with residential and commercial phone service. The company is a competitive carrier offering voice and data services in Michigan. They are located at 4011 Plainfield Ave NE, Grand Rapids, Mi 49525 and the phone is 877-465-8273
and fax # 616-361-5717
with a websiteat http://www.lucre.net
So have fun with this inofrmation. I already reported it to the FCC.
The caller tells you that your credit card XXXX is not in trouble but would like to confirm a pending order. It just so happens that they refer to a credit card that was canceled over a year ago.
AGI calls me twice a day. These bastards need to be nuked. I have contacted our Attorney General about these losers. Bank of America is aware of AGI and considers them scam artists. Whey someone as large as BoA can't put a stop to these guys is beyond me. AGI states they are affiliated with BoA and they are not.
So I couldn't wait to speak to these incredibly rude and bold people again after speaking to my local authorities. After telling them that I was filing a complaint with the FCC they said they would stop calling but it could take a couple of days. I told them that if they continue to call since I've already asked them to stop, the more complaints would be entered. Trust me, they didn't like that I told them I filed a complaint. I suggest if you have the time to do that yourself. Also, call you phone company you are will and ask them to block this number from calling your house, even if you are on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY or HAVE YOUR PHONE NUMBER UNLISTED. I hope this helps those of you out there! This has GOT TO STOP!
California Mar 12th, 2010
They call approximately four times a day....during the worst times. When I asked them to stop calling, they told me that they would keep calling until they spoke with the person they are specifically asking for (my husband). Incredibly rude about it as well. Unreal.
California Mar 12th, 2010
[4-5 calls everyday]wounln't leave a message
California Mar 12th, 2010
I've been having the same issues everyone else has. It's unfortunate nothing has been done about it. I hope everyone receives this message. I called my phone company first and they said that they only thing they could do is block the caller. However, if you are on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY and also pay to have your phone number unlisted this doesn't help. So then I called my local authorities (NO EMERGENCY NUMBER) and they advised me to pick up the phone the next time they call and tell them that if they don't stop calling me that I will file a complaint with the FCC, the number for the FCC should be on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY WEBSITE FOR YOUR AREA. Hope this helps all of us because this is BEYOND RUDE AND SICK!!!

BANK OF AMERICA DOES NOT KNOW WHO THEY ARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Leave us alone agi
very anoying answer the phone and told to call a 313 number
They've been calling me several times month since 2009. Yesterday, they left a message on my machine. Some guy was singing horribly and then he referred to me by name and said he was my "deaf angel" (I think he meant death) and that he was going to kill me at 5 o'clock. I think it was supposed to sound scary but it was pretty funny.

Wow. These guys are persistent. They call several times a day (TN Removal Systems on caller ID). I have never answered the call. They have never left a message. Signed up all my phone numbers on the do not call list. Hopefully they stop calling eventually. For now, will just ignore the call.
Called several times a day morning, afternoon and night.

Called today for my son (TN RENOVAL SYS) on caller ID...wouldn't leave message....even though I have an unlisted number. This outfit is out to get your Social Security number..........BEWARE
They called saying they were from Bank of America and asked to confirm my first and last name and address. They said they wanted to sign me up for a service that would check my credit report and notify me of identity alerts or some bullshit. I said I didn't want to sign up for a service and they hung up. I tried calling back and no one answered. Who the hell are these jerks?

Calls several times a day and will not leave a message. I would like to stop receiving calls from AGI.
Called today and asked for me directly.
I receive several calls a day from AGI 616-980-4030. I don't answer, but my husband called the number and a recording answered "Bank of America" and that they've tried to contact me with a "special offer." I think it's some kind of scam.
Started getting calls from this number 2 months ago daily but they won't leave a message. Very annoying and after reading these posts seems to be scammers.
TN REMOVAL LIST
Calls everyday, several times a day. Sometimes the name displays as AGi and sometimes the name for the same phone number appears as dashes. They are very annoying. AGI is the company and I NEVER answer the call
As I've been reading my situation is the same. TN Removal Sys shows up on caller ID. I too am on the do not call list. They've called for sveral weeks a couple of times a day. I don't ever answer but it is still a big nuisance.
Numerous calls since the beginning of Nov. The calls are usually twice a day. No messages are left on the answer machine.
New Jersey Nov 15th, 2009

South Carolina Nov 06th, 2009
Got our first call from 616-980-4030 the other day. As above caller-id was "AGI".
I recently purchased a nice inexpensive Panasonic wireless phone which has the ability to block up to 30 different incoming phone numbers. This gave me my first chance to test the Panasonic's call-blocking feature. Sure enough AGI tried again today. The Panasonic's call blocking worked as advertised and killed the call on the first ring.
I have checked with Bank Of America. They state that no such company (AGI) works for them and were concerned about the possible damage this company could do to their reputation. They took down the information I provided and indicated that it will be passed on to their legal department for further action. Anyone else so inclined might want to follow up with a call of their own. If you call their Customer Service number, ask for a manager and give him/her the info.
I wish the individual states would implement a simple complaint site for pursuing these jerks. No point in having the feds do it. By the time they'd get around to it, we'd be living on another planet.
