DV / Customer: You haven't even bothered to find out if Beca/Deca thinks you owe something. Blocking and ignoring those calls muffles the noise but does not solve the problem or protect your rights.

I contacted my phone company directly and have activated the blocking feature on my phone;If these people try calling from a different number that number & all numbers will be blocked! Finally,something that actually works!
DV, I'm not going to keep repeating myself. No one reading these fuming comments can ''stop it, stop it'' on your behalf. You have not in fact ''tried everything to stop this''.
Bashing your all-caps keyboard here is not doing any good. Reporting exempt calls to DNC is not an answer. Complaints to the FTC and attorneys general would be proper, but those regulators are not going to leap from their desks to solve your personal problems.
If you were told by a live rep or through a recorded call that you have Deca Financial -- a debt collection agency in Fishers, Indiana -- on your tail, you have options. They have already been outlined here two weeks ago.
''Beca'' could have been a misheard name. Be certain which target is yours before you fire any demand letters.

Or you could take out your frustration like others are doing and go out and dump all your dirty motor oil on the ground instead of recycling it and plug toilets with diapers and baby wipes and kotex and go poison the food in the stores and set fires and smash windows. people are fed up and are fighting back,

ON & ON THIS GOES,I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING TO STOP THIS BUT THESE PEOPLE HAVE MULTIPLE PHONES ON AUTO-DIAL...I MUST HAVE RECEIVED SO FAR OVER 100 CALLS FROM THESE PEOPLE-I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO REPORT EVERY SINGLE ONE...THIS IS VERY VERY ANNOYING...STOP IT STOP IT STOP IT!!!!

DV, maybe at seven weeks of fuming in this thread you should realize what you're doing will never work. Reports on 800otes suggest Beca Financial, which appears to be a debt collector in Delaware. This means three things right away:
- As non-sales callers, collectors are exempt from scrubbing the DNC registry.
- Your number was obtained from a myriad of databases collectors are apt to consult.
- Verbal demands to cease calls are not likely to stick.
You should have seen a dunning letter last month, else the caller is skip tracing for some stranger. In either case, you will need to make your demands on paper, and send them USPS Certified with return card. Meantime, document all calls to establish a possible pattern of annoyance and/or abuse. Here are the federal rules for reference:
To be certain of who's pestering you, you'll have to calm down and get an idea of what the callers want, and how they express themselves. Your partial quote from your initial post sounds rather like the ''Rachel'' credit reprice scammers, which are much harder to control.
