Telemarketing Scam

by on Jun.30, 2011, under Personal

For the past few months I have been getting phone calls on my cell phone from some alleged credit protection to lower credit card debt.

I have no interest so I requested removal. They called again from a different phone number – sneaky. What troubles me is that I am on the national Do Not Call list. Cell phones are covered. The most recent time they called, I asked why they kept calling when I asked them not to call. The person on the phone said “fuck you” then hung up on me.

Here is what I know do far: the phone numbers they use are 207-493-2624 from Carabou, ME and 406-219-2951 from Bozeman, MT. The name they used in my case is Consumer Debt. The names of some of the people making the calls are Ashley Martin – the only one I know with a last name. The others are Robin and Keisha.

If you get a call from these phone numbers or anyone from Consumer Debt, be cautious. These folks feel the Do Not Call law does not apply to them. They are foul mouthed when you request removal from their list.

Would you give people like this your financial information? I hope not! It’s a scam. Beware!!!
