Original Complaint against ADT Security published at Scamity.com on 09-May-14 says, verbatim –
We recently switched our internet, phone, and cable service from my name to my boyfriend’s name to save money with AT&T UVerse. Upon switching phone numbers on 03/31/2014, we immediately began getting bombarded by telemarketing calls from ADT Security. They have been phoning our home at least three to four times a day. | On four separate occasions, I picked up the phone and advised the sales rep that we are not interested in ADT’s product; moreover, I advised the sales rep that we do not want to receive calls from them. Therefore, they should have placed our phone number their internal “”do-not-call list””. Worst of all, I had to tell them this verbally, over the phone, twice today. By the end of today, I placed our new number on the DNC registry, which I should have done a week ago (but I forgot about it). Unfortunately, we could still get calls for the next 31 days. Ugh. | I spent the afternoon doing a little research on the phone numbers they have been calling me from. If you type in the phone number in to “”Google Search,”” it should take you to several links that reflect customer complaints of the same nature. Because I know for a fact that the company is violating federal telemarketing laws, I spent about an hour writing up a complaint letter and filing it with the BBB of Boca Raton (their corporate office is located there), the Attorney General of Florida and Kansas, the FCC (Federal Communications Commission), and the FTC (Federal Trade Commission). If you are experiencing the same type of problems, I’d suggest that you write up your own complaints and file them. Use the following links to file reports: | bbb.org/south-east-florida/accredited-business-directory/information-bureaus/boca-raton-fl | fcc.gov/ | ftc.gov/ | myfloridalegal.com/ | The websites are fairly intuitive, so you should not have much of a problem locating how to file complaints. |
