Good morning. Have you contact your phone provider and asked them to block the number? Does your cell phone allow you to block numbers?

It's a different number each time from different locations in Virginia in additional to outside the state. I told them to stop and If they didn't I was going to file a lawsuit and they told me they have heard that before.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Don't need a call.
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 8 months ago

You can file a report with the FCC and I have provided the link below. After you do this and go on the do not call list, if it continues, you could then retain counsel and sue them, for the violations.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
