>>>> The ONLY way to give it BACK at these marketers is to ?.. be very nice to them, tell them you are very interested, but ask to hold while you get your husband or wife to talk. Then put down the phone and make THEM wait. They will have to decide how long to wait before hanging up.
? I get satisfaction doing this to them !
This outfit has their own epidemic going. They will hound you to death. Report to donotcall.gov if you are on the list.
Go to donotcall.gov for national list. File a comlaint. "May result in legal action." These people are a horrible nuisance. Help to get rid of them!
Do Not Call Me
This telephone number belongs to Pacific Telecom Communications Group. They insist that they do not initiate illegal telemarketing calls, however they are involved in managing the calling lists for their "3rd party contractors" who make the telemarketing calls.
Send your complaints and removal requests to F Antone Accuardi:
Tracked one call (through followups) to a telemarketing manager in CT
Feel free to call his personal mobile phone number constantly and repeatedly here: 203-434-0572
I encourage people to waste these companies' time by following up and leading them through fake sales leads. Show them TOM is a waste of time.
Most of you people are really dumb, aren't you? It's not an actual human being dialing your phone number over and over again; It's a computer. These call centers use software to make phone calls. It's called a predictive dialer (look it up). Let's say they set the dialer to a 5:1 ratio. The system dials 5 phone numbers at a time for every available agent. The first line that picks up gets routed to the agent's computer (hence the delay before someone comes on the line). The computer then puts the other 4 calls into the agent's queue. This is the reason why you may pick up and just get dead air. These companies purchase your information from various sources. Most of you have probably signed up for things online, not realizing that those fields you were filling in become the information used by telemarketers to call you. This data gets sold in batches. Then it gets resold. And then it gets sold again. And so on. Before you know it, several companies are calling you to sell you one thing or another. Now, data is expensive. If these companies actually removed information from their databases every time somebody said they weren't interested, or not to call anymore, their reps wouldn't have phone numbers to dial all day. These companies use other companies' services to protect their identities and make untraceable phone calls from numbers like this one. It's a numbers game: a rep will make six or eight hundred calls a day, get two or four people to sign up or buy whatever it is that they're selling, put food on their table. That's all it is, a job. These people aren't evil-scam-artist-criminal-psychos, they're moms and dads, sons and daughters, friends and neighbors, trying to keep up with bills and paying taxes just like you folks. Bottom line: get the f**k over it! Change your number. Stop signing up for things online, or over the phone, or filling out the slips to win the free car at the mall. Get a smartphone and download any number of apps that will block any unwanted calls before they ever ring through to your phone. Or just surrender to the fact that telemarketers will be around as long as there are telephones... And they have your number. #dealwithit

Pacific Telecom Fraud
Steve Hamilton, Estela Hamilton, and Michael Pittman of Pacific Telecom Communications Group are the ones behind these scams. The have registered as a public utility in several states in an attempt to shield themselves from their illegal telemarketing activities.
What makes it so comical is that Steve Hamiliton actually applied and was granted utility status in at least one state simply using a Gmail account and a bogus phone number.
Please, I encourage everyone to make a complaint to the following Utilities Commissions where Pacific Telecom has gained utility status using false information:
Oregon Utilities Commission consumer complaint line at 1-800-522-2404
North Dakota Utilities Commission: 877.245.6685
Washington State Utilities Commission: 360-664-1129 or 360-664-1102
Tom From Home Protection
Got a call from "Hi this is Tom from home protection" again today, average 2 calls a day from them. went thru the voice prompts to get a "call back" since I said I was "interested". cant talk to a human otherwise. 10 minutes later got a call from "VMS" virtual monitoring service or something like that at 1-866-493-1253 ext 200, the caller said he was from the "alarm company"...was able to get on their Do Not Call list, I think VMS is the "mothership" for the Tom from Home Protection robo dialer.... hopefully being on the VMS Do Not Call List will stop calls from the robo dialers they hire! fingers crossed....
funny u let ur dog answered the call..change your number so wont be bother again.
"Tom from Home protection" called from 425-390-8126...again, as he did almost every day for the past week or so.

Dr. All Reeds
I joined youmail.com
when they call it tells them to go to hell, and f**k themselves, then hangs up on them. No problems anymore!
They can kiss my a$$!
Try getting Pacific Telecom subpoenaed into providing you with that information. Are you a lawyer?
The OTO Group calls me almost everyday. I am thinking of getting rid of this line. I am on the do not call list. Please do not buy whatever the OTO Group is selling
You can complain every day and 20,000 times a day to DNC registry. It doesn't matter. Read the fine print. The only thing they do with the reports is let lawyers see them, just in case, they feel like doing a class-action suit against someone. Gee. That and $5 will give me a cup of coffee. Do Not Call Registry is as effective as the Congress that created it.
I've rec'd two calls from this number within ten minutes. They don't leave a message. I am on the do not call list.
Keep getting the calls, they switch numbers and states but appear to be the same people....they hung up when I told them I was on a DNC list but they call again and I just don't answer any numbers that are not friends or family
oto group called 2 minutes apart as if to see,if anyone was home,picked up twice no one there,other 2 calls no message left,are they them!to see if anyone is home,to do home burglaries,i called local police to notify
DO NOT CALL AGAIN!
My number is on the do not call list what the hell? How do I keep getting these calls? I didn not call them there is no need. I don't have any outstanding debt or late payments and I don't know anybody in Billings Montana.
I keep getting calls from this number. When I call it back it says if you dont wasnt to recieve calls from this number put it on the don not call list and press 1. I keep doing that but they keep calling back.. I'm about to press harassement charges against this number.
another annoyance from these people. it's beena month.
I do not know this number. Nor, do I know anyone in Montana, which is where this area code is. My phone is on the national do not call list.
Got two calls this evening 8/19/2011 from this number and they hung-up after 3 rings, left no message.
I am about ready to waste the gas to go up to Montana to sort this out. I get 10 calls from this person in a week. And this has been for the passed 2 months. I live in Texas and am 17 and HAVE NO DEBT. WHY ARE THEY CALLING ME!! I have put myself on the DNC list and it stopped briefly then started again. I have recieved it twice in the past 3 hours and that sent me to the internet to figure out what it is. I am going to call AT&T and have them put me on a do not call list or something but this is starting to get ridiculous.
I keep getting calls from this number, but don't answer it since is shows no name on my caller ID I'm surprised so many people are having trouble with this same number. Thanks!
Please do not call 2033 218-1119 again!
Sneaky little b*****ds know there's nothing we can do about it. Blocking is a neusence and The NDNC is a joke. The world is this way now. Shameful disregard for people from- none other than- people. Can't ask why and can't complain. We are sitting ducks for the technology fueled society we have created. Welcome to 2011.
I am receiving numerous calls from phone #406-351-4361 which I would like to have stopped. Since I do not know anyone from Montana I ignore the calls which are coming in at least twice a day about two or three times a week.
