Interstate Gas Complaint - Two and three phone calls a day

Review by very controled on 2008-05-01
I get phone calls from these people all day. I have had our name removed from their list twice and turned them in to phone company. They called again this morning and a guy named Richard ask how turning them in was working out for me. We have an unlisted number. They will not leave us alone. We have told them repeatedly we have always had total electric and to quit calling. Is anyone else having trouble with them?

This is turning into a really nasty situation and we are on the do not call list also.

Can anyone help?

Check with your state's public services or public utility commision. All states that I know of have some governing agency that oversees utility companies that supply services to their state's residences. They will have a department that you can file a complaint with.

Good luck.

A do not call list is irrelevant when the purpose of a call is to collect on a debt owed, and this company seems pretty convinced you owe them. I don't understand how they got your unlisted number if you never did business with them unless it was a previous number of an uncollected debtor. Yet you didn't say they have the wrong name. Not to sound condescending, but is this the whole story?

These f*cktards were calling me every day and leaving messages on my machine, and no, I don't owe them anything-they wanted me to switch gas companies.It was a sales call. I was home about the tenth time they called and told them to please stop calling me. Four calls later, I said, "I asked you four times now to stop calling me. If you persist, I know the laws, and I have contacted my lawyer." They hung up on me. Problem solved. I am convinced they harrass whomever allows it. I was really nasty with them the last time and that seemed to work. PS. My number is also unlisted and that didn't stop them.

If you don't owe them anything or ever did business with them, send them a cease and desist letter, certified signature required letter. That should do the trick.
