Now how do you go about finding out about a company? Well it is easy today with computers and the internet! Simply Google the number or if you have any info on the company then that's all you need! Next you need to Google or look up this company and find out what state they are in... if you don't already know. Once you have that, then search that state's Secretary of State (S.O.S.) website. Next you will find a place where you can search for business names, incorporation filings and such. Then click on it and there you go! Be aware that each state's site and info shown maybe different.

Okay so now you have all of this info at your finger tips and IT IS PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE... so what do you do with it? Good question! You have many options. You can write the company or principle agent a Cease and Desist letter and send it Certified Mail! This is imporant as you want a record! You can also file complaints with the BBB, the Federal Trade Commission, Federal Communication Commission, as well as the Attorney General's office for each state they operate in as well as your home state. You can also contact you local public Prosecutor and have them write a letter to the person(s) or company. Or you can take the info and have a your attorney write them a Cease and Desist letter. If they fail to comply, then sue them!

Don't be sue happy people! When people go over board with legal suits like in the medical field for example, then courts put "caps" or limits on what you are able to obtain. That really hurts those who have a real claim.

Okay, so there you go people! Don't just leave a complaint here that blah blah blah company is calling and harrassing you! TAKE THE NEXT STEP... file complaints on them. When I file a complaint against a company, I flood them. I post their info here as I have doen here and them I file complaints with Angies List, the BBB, FTC, FCC, Attorney General, Chamber of Commerce. When you have lots of people do this, you get action real quick!

I hope this helps everyone!

They have called my cell phone once per week for the last 5 weeks. But since my cell phone is calls are handled by Google Voice, I didn't even know about it until I checked the "phone spam" folder on Google. Apparently Google is already routing these to spam for me. Sweet!

Thank you for taking the time to enter your info, I don't know about anyone else, but because of these calls, I no longer answer the phone, my machine does, we can put a sign on our property that states "NO SOLICITORS" and they have to stay away or face trespass citations, but with the phone you are put on the "DO NOT CALL LIST" and still they call, I guess my next step is to go sat phone or no phone!!

Called trying to sell extended auto warranties. The agent became very rude when I explained that I do not even own a automobile that I rely on public transportation to get around town. If you aren't interested in buying a 3 year extended warranty for your new car purchase save yourself some time and don't fool with these people. I was very nice to them and they just treated me like c**p because I don't have a new car and $2500.00 to spend on an extended warranty. Believe me if I could buy a vehicle instead of riding the bus that WOULD BE MY CHOICE. God bless one and all, I know they are just trying to own a paycheck as well.

The company does not apply to the national DNC list since the purpose of the phone call is to conduct a survey. It is not a "scam". At some point or another the person being called had to have distributed their number to a company that l&j uses to purchase numbers. To stop receiving calls simply answer the phone and asked to be put on the do not call list. The call is not to "verify" that you are present at that number. The company conducts a survey to see if you are interested in recieving more information about some investment opportunities. They do not want to force people to take these surveys. Unfortunately the employees are not told that the numbers are not necessarily people who want to be called. All of the employees there are college students trying to pay bills. They don't get to choose who they call. That is the owner of the business. I hope this helps! Don't forget to asked to be put on the do not call list! You can even ask to speak to a supervisor to make sure it is done!

We are never going to stop the creeps of the world from making these calls. My recent experience with this number is that they call, and after I say "hello" a couple of times, they hang up. So when someone actually starts to talk to me, I ask them to please hold on for just a moment. Then I set the phone down. I get back to it in a reasonable amount of time, and if the idiot is still there, I let them start talking, and then I pretend someone else is calling me, and I ask them to hold on again, but just for a moment. Keep that up for a couple of minutes, and eventually, they'll give up. It's always fun to annoy the person calling, and this way I don't get all wound up.

I was not rude to him ( he sounded dejected already) I simply asked him to remove my number from his list and i hung up. I have a free app on my mobile phone and I added their number to my DNC list so if they call again the app will detect the number and reject the call.

I agree with Mr Consumer Protection, stop posting stuff here, and post a complaint about this company on the 'do not call list', if everyone did that to the unwanted calls like this we all get, they would STOP calling us! I filed my complaint, did you? It takes about 2 minutes to file the complaint, and, do it everytime they call!

Do not, repeat, DO NOT answer any phone call that your caller I.D. shows as a number that you do not recognize. (Especially if it is from an area code other than your own.) If it is a legitimate caller to you and/or your business, they will leave a message and you can get back to them. Block the repeat offender caller numbers if you can, but otherwise, DO NOT answer the call. It's either a scam or a quick hang-up by somebody simply verifying your phone number so they can sell it to another bottom-feeding, scum-sucking pig of a company so that they can call harass you as well. (And don't even think for a minute that the 'Do Not Call' Registry will protect you in any way shape or form.) Protect yourself and DO NOT ANSWER ANY NUMBER THAT YOU DO NOT RECOGNIZE!
