Thanks, I'm on the do not call registry but it does not stop some and it pisses me off.

I don't know who Kelly is, but apparently she's been using MY number for more than 2 years now. And she's in default on some major bills. Even the Wine Delivery service called looking for her -- what the heck?

Whoever had our phone number last is seriously behind in their bills, we've had calls from Fannie AND Freddie to local businesses all looking for them. If it wasn't a constant daily annoyance I'd feel bad for them.
It takes a college degree to break'em;
and a high school education to fix'em!
Yeah, I have to deal with calls from collection agencies all the time at work. We get J-1 students for the summer and some have learned that if they order stuff just before end of season it will be delivered before they leave the country, which they can do before the charge hits their bank account. Sooooo, all next spring and early summer we get "Please hold for a very important call". Sometimes I hold long enough to tell the caller "You were not on the phone when I picked up, so you must not think the call is all that important. Who am I to argue?" while the poor person on the other end is trying to go into his spiel.
We get fewer of those "important calls" now, maybe they are getting a hint how annoying that is.
There's a couple other sites with similar information, each with a slightly different focus. I don't have the urls on this computer, though.
I canceled my land line a few years back because of the non stop collection calls for whomever lived at that address before me. At least if I overslept I could count on the 8 AM creditor call to wake me up though.
Nice Utility. Thanks for sharing.
