    What a scam. You indicated, before I paid, that you had a report. So I paid, and you have nothing. Liars. Cheaters. Scammers. Enjoy hell.

    woman left a message: hello this is Nicole from Super Media about your advertising account, I can be reached at 866-520-2485 ext-1014723 please reference the following account number 170001576185. I can be reached anytime up until 4:30pm central time. (what a bunch of crap this is, have you ever seen any extension number this long? it's almost a phone number in itself...) I'm not wasting my time calling them to report they have a wrong number. They'll figure it out. I'm surprised I'm getting this on the do not call list.

    I keep getting calls from them for someone else.  You cannot call or get rid of the phone call.   I just want them to stop calling me  .  Does anyone have a number .  I am reporting it to the do not call number.

    called several times looking for some I have never heard of, after telling them they are calling the wrong number, they continued to call half a dozen times. these JUNK DEBT COLLECTORS need to hire professional investigators , not PAROLEES trying to intimidate the average person, Although I Have to say everyone deserves a second chance but intentionally hiring thugs to intimidate old people, well lets just say to own a junk debt collection agency would attract Sociopathic Personalities
