Consumer Advocates Debt EliminationUnsolicited AutoDialer Telemarketing Debt Elimination Phone Calls

[protected] - Just received an Unwanted, Unrequested and Unsolicited Automated phone call from a man named "Cole" calling from Consumer Advocates Debt Elimination. There was NO OPT-OUT option made available and NO removal request offered. He just kept talking about how "Consumer Advocates" can help with "Debt Elimination". I'm not really sure why the wife and I keep getting these calls, as we don't owe anyone money (other than our home mortgage, which is NOT overdue and is almost paid off - yay!), but they are clearly violating the Federal Do Not Call list, as these AUTOMATED calls are coming in at all hours of Day and Night. According to the FCC and the TCPA - Autodialed Phone Calls with Pre-Recorded Messages are ILLEGAL!

Here is their physical address info and their website info:

I also noticed that a LOT of the Telemarketer Scam phone calls lately are associated with websites that are registered through GoDaddy.com. Seeing as how I know Mr Bob Parsons (who owns GoDaddy.com) personally from years ago, I WILL be contacting him DIRECTLY and requesting him to remove any and all of these sites that are violating the Federal DNC Laws. I also noticed that a lot of them are going through Domains by Proxy, which allows them to hide their info, which is also illegal according to ICANN. Guess it's time to contact the FCC, yet again.

    I am the owner of Consumer Advocates, Inc., located in Yorba Linda California. I do not use auto dialers, this posting is incorrect. I operate a legitimate Debt illumination Back End company. I do not solicit clients directly. There is a company in Fountain Valley, CA that is using my company name on their auto dialer. If you talk to them they will give you their real name and phone number. They claim to be consumer advocates and therefore use that name in their automated message. I suggest you answer the auto call and talk to them if you want to get to the truth.
