This Facebook Post Describes the Problem Perfectly!

From a reader on Facebook:

For the past three months or so, I’ve been getting frequent calls from Tom with Home Protection that came from various cities in Washington and Oregon. Initially, I blocked the first number through my cell phone service, but ended up still getting calls from other numbers. I tried blocking a couple more of the main numbers and that seemed to work for a while. However, the calls started again and so I decided to see if I could stop them by opting out through the automated menu; (emphasis added) that didn’t work because I started getting even more calls.

This morning, I got a call from 704-200-9912 (Charlotte, NC) that I didn’t answer. Just a few minutes ago, I tried calling back but all I got was a recording that the number had been changed or disconnected. I guess that means they’ll be moving onto a new number shortly.

We know who’s in North Carolina right? What a surprise that trying to opt out resulted in even more calls. My experience has been that the harder I’ve tried to get off the calling list of these lead generators, the more calls I would get. I even provided a fake name and number in one “opt out”. Within a few weeks the calls started again, this time asking for the fake name. Ridiculous!

    I constantly get these calls from 8 am to 9pm and I have threatened to sue them and was told, too bad, you can’t do *hit. I have tried to call them back to speak with a supervisor and it never lets you call back. How can they do this over and over again when you have asked to be removed from their call list?

    Received a call from Tom this morning as I have most days for the past several years…. After several minutes of his automated Badgering I was transfered to a voicemail system where I left my number. A few minutes later Becca from Smith Monitoring (www.returned my call. I asked to be added to their no call list.

    I am comletely amazed that a BBB rated A+ Company would use such invasive tactics.
