Jesus frickin christ... I've been waiting all day for a collection company to call me.

Got a call yesterday saying I had an "electronic delivery". I thought TSS-Radio was being nice to me. Turns out, it's a collection company. Now, I don't know WHO the hell I owe. My records show nothing. I've been trying to get these pricks on the phone to at least tell me WHO do I supposedly owe for a day now and they keep playing games.

If any of you get calls from this number, beware. I'm not even sure they're a collection company.

These guys sound like real scum bags. Be careful.

Even though I'm on the Do Not Call list and have an unlisted number, I still get the occasional call from "survey" companies looking for information. I just let calls I don't know go to voice mail.

No shit.... I'm actually TRYING to contact them to find out what the fck they're talking about. Just letting everyone know... beware that number and an unexpected delivery. I thought it was an identity theft attempt at first.

I get one once or twice a day from CLEARWATER RESEARCH (208-376-3376). They are scammers too. I don't answer the phone.

Hmm... I've had my same cellphone number for 6 or 7 years now (no home phone) and never get those types of calls....weird.

Cell phones are supposed to be protected by FCC regs about solicitation over radio-waves or something like that.

donotcall.gov talks about it.

If you can get a name and phone number out of them, you can contact donotcall.gov and turn them in. It's supposed to be a hefty fine for them.

I'm to the point that I have a sound board set up so when I get a round of junk calls coming in I'll hook the phone up to the PC and let em have it with Red from the Tube Bar.

They don't call back for a while after that.
