For the last 2 months I have been receiving phone calls from Allied Interstate claiming I owe $86 to a book club. These calls have always been anonymous by using computer dialers and blocking caller ID (which is against the law)

This book club that I supposedly owe money to, I cancelled my membership over 2 years ago and returned all the books un-opnened.

My roommate usually answers the phone and is met with the typical 3 seconds of silence before someone talks back. When my roommate tells them I am not home, they get rude and immediately ask if there is a spouse available or if there is another number where I can be reached.

When my roommate takes the message, they won't disclose their company name unless asked. All they provide is a phone number and a 'reference number' and most times, the person calling does not have very good english skills and it is difficult to understand them.

One time I did inform them that I do not owe this book company any money and the individual on the other end refused to accept that answer. I could not even understand the gentleman's name because his english was horrible. But they wanted the money and they wanted it now.

And when I informed them that there is a law that requires all companies to display caller ID phone numbers (I am in the same state as this company) they just laughed at me.

I know a lot of these people are just doing their job but they have no right to be rude, or threaten people if they don't give out more information.
