I have yet to receive a wanted call from any number reflecting Level 3 Communications as a provider so now I just avoid all. They offer cheap telephone service which is convenient for telemarketers and collection agencies. The low cost helps outfits like collection agencies and spammers use a new number each time they call increasing the likelihood that you will pick up. That doesn't mean that respectable outfits don't use them, but it seems to be the perfect option for those who are not. I would love to see their records and find out what percent of their customer base are sleazy.
Note, I cannot state how good this business is in terms of performance, but only stressing the type of business it appears to be to help other consumers avoid potential nuisance calls. It would be nice if My Three Cents offered an option so people could report business that extend services to any dirtbag, kinda like reporting property owners that only care if they get paid and don't care if tenants disrupt the neighborhood/community.
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.
