I have gotten 6 calls from Life Care monitoring, in the last 2 days....I want them to stop immediately
I am Marc's wife and I also spoke with you the other day. We are not lying about who we are, this company NUI Telecom is listed incorrectly on Merchant Circles website. Your phone call to us is the first time we are hearing about this and we are actively trying to correct this. I have tried calling Merchant Cirlce at 650-352-1335 but if you do not know the correct extension of someone you get disconnected and I have tried calling their support line at 800-305-9203 but there is a $34.99 fee which I refuse to pay. I found 4 email addresses...email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org...I sent them all an urgent request to remove my information from NUI's listing. You can proceed with criminal charges if you wish, however you are waisting your time with us as we are not NUI Telecom. Your time is better spent re-researching who NUI Telecom actaully is.
Keep getting harassing calls from (425)-390-8123 did a reverse number search came up with land line in Renton, WA. registered to (NUI Telecom, Inc - NY) a telemarketer group for a Merchant Circle group. Did a search on (NUI Telecom, Inc - NY) and came up with a phone @ 516-484-0489 for Marc Tenebruso age 35 to 39, addr. 1 lakeville Ct.,Roslyn, NY called and talked to Marc, he did a google search while I was on the phone with him and confirmed that (NUI Telecom, Inc - NY) had his phone # registered to them but fanatically denied anything to do with a telemarketer co., but guess anyone would if they were facing criminal charges.
I am the CEO of TrueLink, Inc. We market a medical alert device under the name Life-Care Alert. We are not associated with these people that claim to be Life Care Monitoring, nor do we use telemarketing.
Our website is www.Life-CareAlert.com. The website, along with print advertising is the only marketing that we participate in. It is our belief that telemarketing should be banned.
Just go the call. Didn't even bother answering as I googled the number and found this site.
Having your number on the no call list will not prevent you from being called. Reporting that you've been called will not stop the calls. The only thing the "do not call list" does is create a database of offenders. it's up to your District Attorney to prosecute these people. If your DA is not doing this then you need to call them and register your complaint.
It is unlikely that Spike's link has anything to to with the callers. It is for an electric products company. Products of the sort nobody would be silly enough to try selling by telephone to residential numbers.
Moreover, having talked (briefly, before the guy hung up) to them, I know they aren't selling anything related. Talking to them is the most important thing to do, and the most effective way to put a stop to them. Ask questions. Get information. You may have to play along as if interested, but eventually if enough of us do it, we'll have a clear picture of who's bothering us. Then, it might motivate some of us to file lawsuits.
Posting distracting information (Was Spike an employee of the telemarketing New Co?) like wrong identities or improper web sites just wastes your time, wastes the time of the people who read the false claims, and makes it more difficult to track down the real culprits. In other words, check and check again to be sure your information is right, before "sharing" it.
Asking to be put on "the do not call list" often fails to accomplish the goal. Sometimes it's a dunderhead. Sometimes it's a deliberate distraction/deception. Either way, one response is, "We can't do that. You have to do it yourself." (Meaning the governmental Do Not Call lists, and pretending they don't have an internal one.) A clearer and more difficult to avoid request would be, "Put us on all of your do not call lists." Mentioning more than one is important, in the event the callers are acting on behalf of some other outfit, and the two entities have two different lists. They may put you on one DNC list, but not the other.
I do, too...
... hate morons, that is.
I don't care much for folks who simply rant on sites like this without posting anything useful, either.
Calling them and hanging up, for instance, is an idea of morons. Writing to them, without having the true name of the company or its address, is another such idea.
TALK TO THEM!!! Find out exactly who they are and what they want. Lie to them; give them most of a credit card number or SSN, then ask for some of the information. "I'm expecting an important call. If we get cut off when I'm responding to the call waiting, how can I call you back?" Dead relative's SSN works, as does the number for a credit card which is expired, cancelled, or has about a $1.25 (Yep. Decimal's in the right place.) limit.
This outfit is one of the slickest of the slime. Caught me off guard, so I wasn't prepared to lead them on and find out just exactly which "life care" (Or whatever the name he used.) company was offering a "free" pendant. Never got to the point of finding out how much the monthly vigorish would be. After repeatedly refusing to comply with state and federal laws, Tom hung up before I could press on with the reverse scam, and I haven't had time to try calling back.
I hope someone else has better success!!
Sorry, but 425-390-8123 is not, and has nothing to do with, NCS. Since you're wrong about that, how can we believe you're right about the other number?
Makes me think you're actually working for the outfit making the calls.....and trying to divert attention away from your sleazy operation.
Like others here, I got a call from this number. Tom Johnson claimed to be with Lifecare Monitoring. Only one problem. Quick search produced no such entity. Plus, if it were a legitimate outfit, the number used for the call would be associated with the company....not sites like this one.
The number of telemarketing law violations this outfit committed in one day pretty much describes its legitimacy, as far as I'm concerned. There's no clear connection, so far as I can tell, with the "STOP Tom with Home Protection . . ." link on this site. The setups, monitoring, etc. have a lot of similarities between home burglar alarms and these peace of mind services for the old or infirm. So, in time, a provable connection may turn up.
They are pretty brazen. After it should have been clear that no further calls would be tolerated...they kept calling, Which probably means they think they've covered their tracks pretty well. It may take some time, and it may not be cheap, but I intend to track 'em down and file a lawsuit. Telemarketers may be bothersome, but callers like this border on the criminal, at best. It's possible that, in some states, their behavior is criminal.
One probability is that the company is not located in Los Angeles, as Tom claimed. Another is that, in the long run, it will turn out to be some kind of overpriced scam. If so, the value of their "free" pendant would be just a pittance compared to what they will attempt to extract from the recipient's possession.
There's another possible connection, but there's a good chance it's in appearance only. A search on the phrase Tom used several times to describe his company produced only one close match: LifeCare
(TM) Medical Alert System. Many of these scams, though, use deliberately confusing terms to describe themselves. So Tom's script may show "life care monitoring," and the phrase may not actually be the name of the company. No doubt, if their behavior winds up in court, they would deny any deliberate deception, and claim that their true name (Acme Monitoring or "an ADT services vendor" or whatever other name is on the incorporation papers) would not clearly or succinctly describe who they are or what they do, so they use the phrase "life care monitoring" because it gets to the point, and not because they wanted there to be any confusion with the trademarked LifeCare outfit.
Here's their Web site: www.lifecare-alert.com/index.html.
These folks have called me on my cell phone 3 times yesterday!
Let's write or call them & hang up!!!!!
4253908123 also 4259399927
They are a COLLECTION AGENCY
NCS Inc from 425-390-8123 as a Collection Agency
4253908123 also 4259399927 They are a COLLECTION AGENCY NCS, Inc. PO Box 3002 Woodinville, WA 98072-3002 Primary Contact: Mr A H Sarajy (President) http:www.bbb.orgusFind-Business-ReviewsnamencsWA Notice they do NOT have BBB.org accreditation. In order to get them to STOP calling you must write a letter stating "Stop Calling" and send it certified return-receipt. It will cost you $5.89 to do this. Thats the only way to (legally) get them to stop. If not, brace yourself: They will call starting 6:30am!! (Which is illegal, but theyll do it anyway).
Please take your spam elsewhere. We don't care what you're doing, if you're not going to give us useful information with which to track down, then sue, the scum. You're no more help than the folks who whine about all the other calls they've gotten, and don't understand why they keep coming....since they never answer the phone. 800Notes is a powerful tool against these thieves of our time, but it could be far more powerful if we didn't have so many people who have so little to contribute. Or, if we simply had far more people with useful information to contribute.
They're idiots who waste their time and money calling people who will never pick up the phone for unfamiliar numbers. Then they spend more time and more money changing their number to call people who will never pick up the phone for unfamiliar numbers.
they call constantly. I am on the no call list. they don't leave a message and I don't answer.
Began calling at 8:00 this morning and have called several times today. Just called again at 2:25 p.m. Says New Co on the caller ID.
Pls, someone do something to stop this.
phone rings every10 to 30 minutes. No one there when answered
This number calls me every day and never leaves a message. Very annoying, especially since I am on the do not call list.
1st time they called I politely declined offer twice. The second time on the first call, the caller hung up. Receive calls all day long for weeks now. Just don't answer. On DNC list.
9:53 AM Some guy selling an emergency alert monitor. He wouldn't shut up, so I disconnected him.
did not answer, no message left, calls every few hours
Loving my Lexus
They called me 5 times yesterday on my cell. FIVE TIMES! Who does that?????
called 6x already today, no message left. I have never heard of this company ever. I am on the DNC list and never give my number to anyone online or other wise. Now that i know what this company is, I'll have a little fun with them
Oops, "then" not "than".
Just got another one. Only one today, thank god. They seem to come in bunches. You'll get several calls from this Seattle/Renton number over a few days, than they'll stop for a week or two, then start right back up again. Very annoying.
I got a call from this number today. I answered but no one was there. I checked and found out my do not call registration had expired. It's only good for 5 years and they do not notify you when it expires. After you register, it takes 30 days before you can post a complaint against a number.
