DUMONT, NEW JERSEY -- Despite the fact that I am on the Do Not Call list, I was awakened at 0815 on July 5, 2010 - a legal holiday - by silence on the phone. I pressed "1" to talk to customer service but the message said that I should call back later due to heavy call volume. An hour later, I was awakened again by the same recorded message. This time I pressed "2" to be removed from their call list. A half hour later, I received a third call but this time there was a woman on the line who was obviously calling from a "boiler room" operation since I could hear many voices in the background. She offered me a "work from home" opportunity. I told her that I had not requested such an opportunity and I told her to remove me from their calling list. I'm going to report them to the FCC. I'm also going to contact their corporate HQ at 1-877-453-8353.
BRIDGEPORT, CONNECTICUT -- They keep calling my residential phone offering ways to bring in more business. I'm on the do not call list. I've pressed 2 numerous times to be taken off their list, but they keep calling. I pressed 1 and asked to be removed from their list and explained that it is a residential number. Again, today they called. I pressed 1 and before I could say more than a few words the guy hung up on me.
Now I'm going to find out if there is any legal action that can be taken against this company.
