National Action Financial Services, NAFS constant autodialer calls Ripoff Williamsville New York

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

After receiving a phone call from the NAFS autodialer, I sent NAFS the letter below. The recorded message was actually quite amusing. The male voice went on and on about "patience is no longer a virtue" and that I was to call "Bill Shine" at 866-529-1902 "by close of business today" or they would take some ominous-sounding action. The recording never identified their company.

Since that initial phone call, they have called back at least five times. I will wait until I receive the green return receipt postcard before filing complaints with the FTC, the Attorney Generals for the states of New York and Virginia, and the BBB. (Believe it or not, NAFS is a BBB member in good standing, despite the huge number of unresolved complaints listed on the BBB's own web site!)

Letter follows:
