Man Says Telemarketing Calls Do Not Stop
Telemarketing calls can be annoying and one Laredoan says they don't stop.
Now he is asking for your help to make them stop.
It's the phone calls we dread receiving.
Those pesky telemarketers, most of us just hang up hoping they don't call again but what happens when they do.
For days now Mario Gonzalez says he has gotten hundreds of calls, at least 200 in a span of one hour, but thats not the only odd part.
Mario Gonzalez says, "it's just crazy you know, I don't even want to answer the phone anymore. I don't even know if it's a legit number, most of these as you can see, there all local numbers and there all recordings that say you won a trip to the Bahamas or you just won a million dollars, junk!
He says he did have some luck calling back one of these numbers.
"I called back then his guy answered seemed like a regular guy to me, that guy said he has been getting the same calls but under my number."
So we tried calling one of the numbers that keep nagging Mario.
Mario says, he has gone through every channel that might be able to help,his cell phone carrier, the do not call list and finally the Federal Trade Commission but there has to be a significant amount of complaints until they can intervene.
"It's pretty irritating that I cant do nothing about it, just have to sit and wait until something happens all I can say is if your getting those call report them to the FTC maybe we can put a stop to this because trust me, it's annoying."
If you have received calls like these and feel like you're being exploited call the FTC at their helpline at 1-877 f-t-c help.
