Knock it off! @ 12:14 pm

Current Mood: pissed off pissed off

Dear collection agency:

Your automated system has called me four times this morning with a 'special message' for David. I've only had this cell phone a week now, it was my nephew's before that. I have no clue who David is; I'm not David, my nephew isn't David, there's no one in my whole family named David. You obviously have the wrong number.

Take my cell the frak out of your system and stop wasting my minutes!!

P.S. Apparently my nephew had managed to get his voice mail set up with all the menus in Spanish, so I couldn't tell how to delete messages or how to reset it back to English. I spent awhile on a landline call with tech support and they walked me through resetting the factory defaults so I could set it back up in English. But since I've got this primarily for emergency outgoing calls, I really don't need voicemail (especially from stupid bill collecting 'bots with wrong numbers) so I'm not going to bother turning it back on.

my dad got a phone new from the store, apparently the number they gave him used to recieve porn through text messages. My dad recieved over 100 messages in an hour. He had to go through a lot of hassle to have it fixed. Have you tried answering the phone and telling them they have the wrong number???

Yep, it was just an automated 'message', no person to tell they'd made a mistake.

I hate those calls. We had one coming to the house for someone with the same surname, but a different (and unknown to us) first name. Even if you do get a person, they don't believe you don't know their target person. Everybody lies to the collection agencies.

It wouldn't be so bad if I had at least earned the debt...

I hope they stop calling soon.
