This company provides telephone services for two layers of hidden companies, that refuse to abide by federal regulations regarding telemarketing. They have refused to stop calling (though I am already on the do not call list). They have refused to provide any of their information as required by law when asked. They are calling with an autodialer, and have a number of hidden companies so that they can continue doing business.
After contacting the Montana Secretary of State and Montana Department of Justice, I received the following information:
Thank you for your information. Over time, we have received several complaints like yours. Upon investigation, we have found that these 406 area code numbers belong to an unknown out-of-state company that purchased/leased the Montana phone number from a telemarketing company that purchased/leased it from a Los Angeles based competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) named Pacific Telecom. The calls are not coming from Montana. Please see the three tiered call sequence below:
1. Pacific Telecom
2. A telemarketing company
3. The unknown out-of-state company which called you from (406) 8528377
You can see that the number originated with Pacific Telecom by viewing the link below:
We are advising consumers to file complaints against the known entity in this scheme, Pacific Telecom.

You can report these harassing calls, file a complaint and/or direct all inquiries that are associated with Pacific Telecom to the Federal Trade Commission either by calling (877) 382-4357 or by visiting www.ftc.gov.
I have filed a complaint with the FTC and will be following up on it. They have called trying to sell many different things (credit card rate reductions, mortgages, etc).
I will be doing everything I can to find out who this company is. Pacific Telecom is providing the phone numbers and hiding the companies. I believe they are involved with the company.
