FROM: Company name: Platinum Benefit Group
Address: 16805 US 19
Clearwater Florida, 33764
Telephone number: 866.404.8370
Caller's name: Cassandra Baylor
1.) Initially when the calls started I explained - you've got the wrong number, there's no Samson here.
2.) The calls continued from the same number and additional different numbers: 866.404.8370; 877.890.1211; 989.455.6755; 515.369.5701; 800.504.9280; 770.783.5969 - When / if I answered the phone, the callers were all referencing Samson.
3.) Got tired of the constant harassing calls so I began a log of the telephone numbers, the date and times of the calls.
(August 26, 2008)
1.) Called my cell phone service carrier. They cannot block individual numbers, you can block all calls or change your number. AGAIN.NOT ACCEPTABLE! The rep. offered to provide me with 100 free minutes. That's all well and good but that IS NOT GONNA STOP THESE HARASSING PHONE CALLS! Do you intend on giving me 100 free minutes each month because of this? I asked if there isn't some way they can call these numbers and tell then to cease and desist from contacting your customer? The rep. took the numbers and said he would see what he could do. I KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS BY READING BETWEEN THE LINES.NOTHING WILL GET DONE ABOUT THIS.
2.) I Googled only 1 of the 6 numbers and viewed SEVERAL SIMILAR COMPLAINTS.
3.) Went to the National Do Not Call Registry on the internet and registered not only my cell phone number but my home number and my daughter's cell number.
(August 28, 2008)
1.) Called the FTC AGAIN Tom: Used the reference number previously supplied to me and gave him the information about the cell phone calls and numbers the calls are coming from.
2.) Went to http://www.ripoffreport.com , registered and filed a complaint against: 866-404-8370
3.) I will be filing complaints on the following numbers as well:
*If these scammers can find me that means that they can find my children! Though I believe my children have learned the lessons I've taught them about safety, I know that if someone is slick enough, they could probably get enough information to cause harm in one form or another! DO WHATEVER YOU CAN, DON'T JUST SIT BACK AND LET PEOPLE INVADE YOUR LIFE AND PRIVACY. I KNOW IT'S A HASSLE TO HAVE TO INVESTIGATE AND TAKE YOUR TIME TO DO THIS BUT THINK ABOUT IT..WHAT DO YOU VALUE IN YOUR LIFE? THE TIME IT TAKES TO ASSERT YOUR RIGHTS, TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY IS WELL WORTH IT IN MY OPINION!
DO IT, MAKE THE COMPLAINT:
