Tom from Home Protection has been calling me every day on my Los Angeles area
cell phone. I am currently living in Verona Italy. I intend to take Home Protection
to Small Claims Court for the money this is costing me for the Europeah roming
call charges. My cell phone number is 310 779-0141. I will definately invite the
Los Angeles News Media to attend the court proceedings.
Bob who called Tom back
This is a robocall from Monitronics Home Security Systems. They use a variety of phone numbers to call you. Look them up online. They are not a company you want to be doing business with.
The name of the company is monitronics. See below for more details
I am looking for home security and found an online website that installs ADT security. I input my name and number someone called me back the following day. The number was 360-529-6181 with caller-ID New A Co. The caller said that they were representing Quality Home Security and gave me the spiel about the free system equipment and installation for $99.00 and $40.00 per month. They asked about my phone system and seemed quite legit. They supposedly set up a date to have it installed today at 8:00 a.m. Here I sit. I have called the number back on the caller-ID and only get a message. I am unable to find this company online. Just got off the phone with my bank cancelling payment that thankfully has not gone through. Also, the card I used expires in 5 days.
Tired and mad
Whenever Tom (And Heather too) call, hang up and speed dial 60 Minutes. If everyone bothers 60 Minutes, they will lose money on time, personnel, and resources receiving so many calls. They will get the clue that finding this guy would be a great human interest story. They have Congressional and Magistrate connections, their own private dectectives, and a budget they would recoup in the shows airing.
Now, this is where I come in. As a prison guard, I know a few things about the culture. For instance, how to you take $50 and drain a bank account?
A: Good ol' Tom is sitting in the Court room having no idea that $50 was put in "Black Buck, the Wonder Lovers" prison account.
Tom has just been auctioned even before the gavel hits the wood.
The first thing $50 bought was Buck greeting Tom.
Now, Buck is not usually stupid. Knowing how much could have been made by Tom's ethics, Buck decides to let Tom in on the secret. "$50 for you at auction, but I have a better deal. $75 month for keeping you from being my girlfriend.
When Buck sees Tom comfortable with $75, then Buck says, "...per week."
Then, $100 per week....$400 per week...$1000 per week, and so on and so on--especially since Buck know when Tom's first parole hearing comes.
By halfway to parole, Buck has almost drained Tom's Bank account, and Tom is about to be someone's bltch to keep the money rolling in.
$50 has just drained Ol' Tom's bank account.
Tired and mad
The BEST way to get rid of these calls is to call 60 Minutes EVERYTIME this baby-raper calls you. When 60 minutes gets enough calls to start to spend their money tying up their phone lines, personnel and time, they will mobilize their Congressional and Magistrates connections. They will use their private investigators, and find this pervert.
Then, when he aired (60 minutes has to recoup the loss) during the human interest story, we can all pitch in and pay "Buck the Wonderlover" to pay a kind welcome to his cell.
(Yes, I am talking about Tom.)
If you love Tom as much as I do, then check out this awesome remix I made of his annoying automated message: http://soundcloud.com/shawnshine/hello-this-is-tom
I've gotten these same robot calls (Tom from home protection) from multiple different numbers for several months. I've assigned them to a contact called "robo" with a unique ringtone so I don't answer, ran out of fields and had to start a second contact. Even if you could block them, it seems they'd call from another number. Has no-one with some phone savvy figured out the source of this evil? What is the reward that keeps them doing it? Is the whole epidemic automated? I'm ready with my pitchfork if we can determine what human with a beating heart started this.
These are the numbers that Tom has called me from (might have another marketer-type mixed in here):
they call me atleast 5 times a day. just called me at 8 in the morning
Sick N Tired
The problem I have is that it is my business cell phone and it's how my clients contact me. Makes it impossible to ignor the number calling. If the person or company has been identified why can't we bring suit? it's costing me real money for the minutes used on my cell phone.
DNC doesn't do jack s***. You send in countless reports, they MIGHT (and this is being nice), contact them. They won't shut them down. DNC, needs to clean up their act and do something, or shut their, "false" company down.
Hello there, and how are you doing. Nice meeting you is Patrick B.Jones from Ghana as a Liberian refugee here and wish to be a friend. I have study computer hardware and some networking of LAN and WAN . Now I am studying shipping management of economic of sea transport and hope to hear from you to this Id" email@example.com.
I have been getting calls from Tom for a while, today it was 3 times..I finally called back and was asked to be put on the do not call list. I hope this works! It's always the same number "(503) 468-5227
Astoria, OR"! It's starting to shade me out.
Call me all the time, always from different numbers and different states.
Damn you Tom from Home Protection!
Called this time from
They disappeared for a while (like a week or two) where I didn't get the expected 2-3 calls a day. Now its back with Tom with Home Monitoring (or something selling a wearable alert system like they sell for senior citizens). They now want to give it to you for FREE!!!!!! Yeah not buying it. If you answer no when he asks if your interested, he skirts the question and shoves , 'BUT IT'S FREE!!!!!!' back in your face. Very annoying.
I get calls from Tom all the time and I don't mind. But today he called and when he asked me how I was I told him "Not so good, I think I'm too young for you Tom." Then he said Oh, umm umm I'm sorry I will take your number off my list right away. It was pretty funny.
They do not answer their phones for CS anymore!!!!
Same problem as all of you. Received a call at 8Am PST. One of yet a dozen I've received. I will report.
I think that this is automated because I just did the same thing and got the EXACT same response... Ugh! This is so annoying! I just want it to stop!
Voice interactive recording to sell home security services. I have a total of about 8 numbers being used.
Just to name a few
how to make them stop? ummmmmmmmm.......murder?
This is Tom from Home Protection
The number that shows on my phone is 253-246-8553. I tried the call back press 1 a week ago, calls stopped for a cuple of days - now they are back - as many as 6 per day when I don't answer.
I have been receiving calls from "Tom" for months now...sometimes multiple times a day. I am incredibly frustrated with this and looking to find some way to take it to higher authority.
Oh, and add 253-246-8553 to that list, got that one today.
Oh, the number is 253-246-8552, Kent, Washington. I'm on the East Coast.
Hi, this is Tom from Home Protection - they have been calling me daily for over two weeks. Tom is a voice recognition system response bot. I've spoken to "him" once or twice and said I thought he was not a person but a recording. The voice recognition system generates a standard response: Do I sound that bad? It's sort of funny, but basically annoying and invasive. They are offering me a free GE home alarm system in exchange for my simply putting a sign in my front yard. That way they'll know exactly which house to rob...
This is a robot but they are extremely convincing. I am very impressed by the recordings quality. I asked if they were a robot and the voice "Tom" laughed and said, "Oh, do I really sound that bad?". I actually liked getting the call because of the intel that the phone system has. When I told "Tom" I was at work, he was a flawless salesman. "Oh, I understand you're busy, but if I could ask just a couple questions?" Flawless. Not buying what they are selling, but still fun.
HERE IS AN UPDATED LIST: I have been doing a little investigating on these numbers used for "Thomas Home Protection" , "Tom at Home Protection Services" ,
" Tom with Home Security Group" and "Home Protect". The phone numbers are most likely from some unknown telemarketer(s), pranksters
or possibly scammers. Here are some of the numbers that I have found that seem to be connected with
Home security so far, there are probably many more. Though occasionally some of the numbers are also used for other purposes-lower morgtage, credit card, test drive
a car, computer virus removal and so on, they usually eventually tie back into the "Home Security" line using the same number. Many times they will have a call Identification of "GRNSEC". You can do what you want but I am not answering any numbers I do not recognize, especially these. "Tom" or whoever it is needs to be stopped, everyone is tired of his speed dial calling all day long.
603-214-3654 started out with AED mortgage reduction and later used number to
see if you wanted to test drive a car. Sometimes used the name "Tom".
323-863-7187 possibly ADT Home Security on this number, could be legit, but seems to be bothersome to some none the less.
603-214-3650 "Ben" with Home Security Group-also number used for lowering credit card debt etc.
978-570-2418 Debt relief and also Security System
978-570-2445 Have not used the "Home Security" line yet but appears to be from the same phish bowl. Caller ID: GRNSEC
As you can see these jerks have a wide variety of phone no. to choose from. This list may be just the tip of the iceberg.
I suggest putting a block on all of the numbers here if you are able to. And adding any numbers that come up in the future
from "Tom" onto this site asap.
I have not got any calls from this number, but I have been getting several a day from (978) 570-2446. I got the (701) 625-5444 number from the (978) 570-2446 number complaints on this site. It is always from Tom at some home security company. As I am writing this I got another call from the (978) number but I am not answering it any more. Hopefully they will have a phone bill a mile long.
