Consumer Complaint: On XXXX XXXX around XXXX XXXX an individual from Diversified Consultants Inc. called my home number looking for XXXX XXXX. My wife answered the phone and told them ( 1 ) we do not know who this is, ( 2 ) no one by that name has ever lived at this number and ( 3 ) we have asked and been told multiple times when this company has called the number would be removed. They told us today it would happen. Problem is they always promise and then call back. On Thursday, XXXX XXXX, around XXXX I spoke to XXXX XXXX, told him the issue and asked to talk with a manager, he put me on hold and then the line went dead. I called back at XXXX XXXX, spoke to someone and asked to speak with a manager. I was transferred to XXXX XXXX in XXXX FL at XXXX. XXXX promised me my home number would be removed from their files. This is the second time I have filed a complaint about this issue. The last time was in XXXX of this year. Your agency told me the problem was resolved. It is my opinion they simply ” sold ” the file to a sister company in a different state. Not sure how else to explain this.
