I was contacted by an individual, John, claiming to represent "The Automotive Center" who would not provide any information relative to complete affiliation or location. My caller ID showed a number of 425 658 8911. When questioned the individual was rude to say the least and eventually so was I. He informed me he and his company didn't care about the Do Not Call list, the VA State Corporation Commission or the FCC, and that there was nothing I could do about it. He hinted at further harrassment.
A few minutes later the individaul called again from a different number (253 246 8573) with the apparent purpose of further verbal confrontation. Another unpleasant conversation ensued with further hint of continued harrassment. My request to be connected to a supervisor was met with derision.
Later in the same day the individual called again and I claimed he had called the wrong number and hung up. Less than 5 minutes later an individual who identified himself as Paul Thompson called claiming to represent "The Automotive Center". When confronted about the previous 3 calls by "John" Paul feigned ignorance. I suggested that The Automotive Center not ever call me again and promised to pursue this matter with appropriate authorities if it does.
I have attempted to call both of the numbers these people have called from according to my caller ID. The numbers both yielded information indicating they are disconnected numbers belonging to the Pacific Telecommunications Group. I have seen other reports on Ripoff Report about a company with a very similar name but offering credit "services". My caller ID also shows names of Service Info and Consumer Service associated with these two numbers.
