You dont seem very professional. Did you complete 2nd grade? I would never hire a company whose customer service representatives cant write or spell at at least a 2nd grade level. Quit while you are behind.
A filthy little animal, saying he was from "A Plus Builders," called AGAIN today for the THIRD time in the past six months. Please note today was a SUNDAY! Anyone who posts in this forum claiming this outfit is anything but a complete fraud/scam is a MORON!
why are you knowingly violating the do not call registry? I wouldn't do business with anyone who harassed me with unwanted calling.
I just received an unsolicited call from A Plus California Builders - it is a call center NOT a legit construction/remodeling business!
Yeah, 10 to 1, you're one of those unhappy taxpayers who supports the government sequester (which by the way is hell bent on defunding every worthwhile citizen protection program) available to all.
number they came up on my caller id..
when i questioned the name and number- i go umm., umm callcenter..
Pushy person tried to convince me this was a community service to come out and beat contractor prices by 15%...
The new number was actually 394-1241
I don't know the area code. That was all I could get from *69
I just received a telemarketing call from A plus builders. I was stupid enough to try to schedule an appt with them to get an estimate to fix our septic tank. They never called back until today. Anyways she didn't believe I was the woman of the house and started making that ghetto disbelief sound. She was getting very annoyed because I kept stating I was the woman of the house. She finally hung up on me in frustration after giving me a very sarcastic comment that was repeated three times "Enjoy your homework", everytime I would try to ask her information about why she was calling. She called from 357-4272, but I don't know what the area code was. I wanted to call her back to give her a piece of my mind but after discovering this website I am glad she hung up on me.
Ways to get them to stop calling:
- Sound like a child
- Say your renter
The new number they are calling from is 357-4272
I really am tired of getting these calls. What good is the call blocking do not call list!
These people call my house and because I would not let them come out to give me an estimate he got vet rude and called me out of my name. I keep calling back and getting voice mail saying it is full. Dies not show listing at all. Be aware this is difinilty a scam,
A good idea . . .
Here is how you get back at these lead farms - you need to get the name of actual contractor . ..
Most of the time the actual contractor has a California contractors license-
You then file a complaint with the State Contractor Licensing Board- that complaint is an objection to the annual relicensure of the contractor for violating the provision of the law which requires them to follow all other applicable laws in order to do business in California.
I have done this 4 times in the last year and on all 4 occasions the contractor was required to hire a lawyer to keep their license - as well as enter into a stipulation agreeing to not violate the DNC list any longer. As a condition of that I was given access to the information from the lead farm- so I know who Telemarketer is and have filed a direct complaint against him with FTC. Also - as soon as I get a enough I also have assignments of the claims the individual contractors have against the lead farm and as soon as I get enough to make it worth my paralegals time we will be suing him for the expenses incurred by the contractors the result of Telemarketer costing them money. There are claims out there against these guys but you need to remove the incentive of the contractor to use the lead farm - and if the lead farms get a reputation of costing more than they are worth in hassle factor - they'll dry up.
The State takes the relicensing of contractors seriously, even if the contractors think its just a fee they have to pay.
I've also told them to take me off their calling list, but I keep getting calls ~everyday.... I'm about to report them to the BBB. Lets see what happens.
In the past have answered your call and when I found out what you were offering, I asked you to take me off your list. You continued to call, so i then blocked your number. You've called so often that I recognize your number even tho your CID: WIRELESS CALLER
CID: WIRELESS CALLER
I see they are still making their annoying calls... called my home landline at 8am today.
Blocked this number, but they still continue to call - over a dozen times now.
If they are indeed legit, they would not need to come here to defend themselves!!!
If you're willing to break this law to get a sale, what other laws will get broken once we hire a contractor? What shortcuts will be taken? What safety violations will be made?
Here's an idea... if I want a contractor, >I< will call one.
Telemarketer said "We are listed on the web at Apluscaliforniabuilders.com"
I can't stop laughing. A single page website with an anonymous rah-rah review about how great the company is. No company info. No license info. No address, or phone number, or names or any type of contact info. And no such company is licensed for contracting work in California. Great marketing, Mr. Telemarketer. LOL.
These people are scammers. Don't answer.
It's pretty obvious to know what we want when we are on the federal do not call list!
You say that we must ask to be taken off the list- WRONG! I am already on the DNC list therefore you are breaking the law by cold calling me!
Hey "Telemarketer". Should we all assume, based on your posts, that you work for A Plus California Builders?
These guys are calling all the time and I think that they are trying to rob my house.
A+ California Builders
I've blocked their number, but they still keep calling. Are they stupid or what? I'd NEVER hire them to do any work for me, I'd go to someone on the Angie's List first!!!
In case these "contractors" didn't notice, we're on a do not call list, as if they care. I've started to do the *57 call trace and then file a report with the police. The trace shows the real number not the fake one that comes up on the caller ID. You tell them you're on a do not call list..... hello, ... they still call back. Tough job???? change jobs then. I recall when Time Warner would send their goons around to get you to sign up for cable. We have "contractor" gophers come around the neighborhood once a month and we've started filling police reports and complaints to city council about them. Many of them are belligerent. I take photos and pass them on to the local PD. Some even ignore the No solicitors sign. Maybe S&W would be a better way to get the point across! If I want a repair job done, which I don't, I'll call reputable ones that I know, not some twit on the phone.
yeh its so bogus that a contractor would fix something for someone :) lol
Dont listen to them i know my customers are happy thats why i make fat commision checks :D
wrong family owned bussiness all work is done with our own contractors.
must be the guy with the camera store in the neighborhood.
I dont want yer stuff i live in a 1 bedroom apartment with my wife and baby i dont have anyplace to put it :)
Yes waste yer time trying to pull one over on us cause we cant read yer plans here in the forums...
Its a free estimate for home improvement we are not devils or terrorists ..we are contractors and telemarketers.
