Called 2x today. Hang up when I ask to be put on DNC. I am on the national do not call list. We need a better law so these slimeballs cannot interrupt with their BS offers. This is a Republican law and it has no teeth - Repubs talk a strong game but value corporate needs over rights of the private citizen. We need a law like Europe whereby privacy is OPT-IN (we have "opt-out"). Legitimate or not - I do not want to be interrupted at home w/o my express permission!
Just got a call from this number, also from Asbury Park, NJ. I don't know anyone there and my phone rings, maybe, once a week and that's even rare. I didn't answer and my answering machine is off. Glad I checked out the number here so I know I didn't miss anything important.On a side note, about a month ago, two guys rang my doorbell incessantly at about 6:00pm. I was not feeling good and was in bed. I finally got up, figuring there must be an emergency, and answered the door. One of the guys explained that they were there regarding the new electric program. I told him it wasn't a good time, I wasn't feeling good, and asked if he had some paperwork he could leave. He said no, so I asked him to come back another time. He insisted on talking to me and even demanded my electric bill. I told him I didn't know who he was and again that it wasn't a good time and I closed the door. He continued to talk - to the door.The next thing I knew, he was ringing my upstairs neighbor's doorbell. My neighbor and I share a common entrance/front door. My neighbor came down and opened the door. He told the guy that it wasn't a good time and come back another time. They guy still insisted on talking. I yelled to the guy that it wasn't a good time and leave us alone. He STILL kept talking!! Fortunately, my neighbor closed the door on him, too.
This number came up on my Caller ID at 3:18 p.m. 1/20/2011 - NOT AVAILABLEI have Call Intercept on my phone which should block phone numbers like this, yet it still came through. They do not leave a message and if I answer the phone no one is there. This is very disturbing. I do not accept solitation calls at my residence. I realize telemarketers have to make a living too, but not on my line, I am not interested.
Just received a call from this number and the person was accented and said "I would like to speak to the individual that is responsible for paying the electric bill." I started to tell him that this is a business number and he was trying to tell me he'll call back, but I asked him not to call back as this is a business number. Hopefully they will respect that otherwise next time I will NOT be as nice. Legit businesses should register their phone numbers and not cold call people with "not available". Shady.
young male called about reducing electric rates by 12%could barely understand him with his ebonics. he had trouble reading whatever he was trying "axe" meit was probably legit but i hung up anyway. better than having them come to the door like other companies have been doing.
don't know who this is. no message was left
