bill collectors looking for someone else…
I posted the other day about a company calling my land line home phone number and asking for someone I do not know.
I think I have resolved this issue, and here’s what I did:
–I Googled the phone number that was calling me, and found that lots of other people were having the same problem.
–As I clicked on links, I found the name, address, and telephone number of the company.
–This morning, I called the company (located in Maryland), and requested that my telephone number not be called again, and the reason why.
–The company spokesperson was most pleasant, apologized for calling me, and told me the “do not call” will go into effect in 24 hours. This person also gave me a file number, which I will keep in my records.
–Over the weekend, I filed a complaint with the National Do Not Call Registry, because callers from this company were not honoring my word that the person they were looking for was not at my telephone number.
*This is an important point, folks: You need to find the company calling you and contact them directly.
I also checked the Better Business Bureau website, and the company that has been calling me has an “F” rating. Should the calls from this company continue, I will file a complaint with the BBB, and include the file number and the name of the person I spoke with this morning.
I hope this helps, and I will keep you all informed.
