Complaint Review: Paetec aka Windstream Communications - Internet
Paetec aka Windstream Communications Paetec knowingly provides VioP Services to scammers allowing them to harrass and rip off people - they don't respond to complaints, Internet
*Consumer Suggestion: More information needed
*General Comment: Inside job not coming from overseas
Paetec Communications owned now by Windstream Communications provides VoiP phone services. They sell these services to scammers who use their VoiP lines to call consumers in violation of the national do not call list. These scammers attempt to BS consumers out of credit card, bank account, and SSN info. The scammers use a variety of ruses such as a "free alarm sign in your yard and free alarm system", etc.
While I've not been taken in by any of these scammers - my complaint is that Paetec is aware these companies are committing fraud and violations of Federal law and they do not respond to any complaints made to them about the fact their customers are doing this. They are providing the means for theft and they are aware of it and yet they choose to do nothing. Case in point a phone # 718-732-1022 which is owned by Paetec but being used by a bunch of scammers overseas. Paetec has been informed of this and has chosen to take no action.
