I am 13 years old and during the day since it is summer break, I am babysitting my 10 year old sister. I.C. Systems repeatedly calls looking for our father and when I tell them he is not home, they ask for his cell number. I refuse to give them this info and the lady begins to be rude. I hang up immediately, but they always call back. I have been woken up at 10:30 at night by one of their calls, and I am getting tired of it. We normally don't answer, but the phones with(as I wrote this they called again!) Caller ID are in a completely different part of the house, so I just pick up the phone with no Caller ID and hope its not I.C. Systems. Is there ANY way to stop these calls?

    These people keep calling daily. Is there any way to block this company from calling?

    that is true and if they do call you or send any info on or in regarding to a debt to your address or call you then they are breaking the law and then you will want to get an attonrey because they will have a law suite against them for breaking the federial debt collections act (fdcpa) also i am not sure what state or time zone you are in but if you look on google you can find all and any info on the laws about the debt collection agencies but they are only allowed to call you or the person that owes the debt until 9pm your time not there time zone. Now if you or the person is on the phone with them and it is after 9pm that is one thing but if they call you at 9:01pm your time then again that is aginst the law and they can get into a lot of trouble for that, again you may need to get an attonrey involved with that as well. You can always report them to the better business bureau as well and have them take it over along with writing a letter to your attonrey general.

    I had the same problem they will not stop calling and then they have the automatic system that just tells you that this is an atempt to collect a debt any any information obtained will be used for that purpose and there calls are monitored and recorded (thats the collectors mini miranda) they have to say on every phone call but i wish that someone would review the calls because they do not stop you could report them to the better business bureau or get an attoney involved and sue them for harassment.

    you can send them a letter requesting they cease communication with you under the terms of the Fair Credit Collection Practices Act, 15 U.S.C.S. Section 1692. When you write your letter, do not forget to date it, sign it, and keep a copy. If you really want them to pay attention, send the letter CERTIFIED. By sending the letter CERTIFIED, you have proof that you sent the letter. If you send this letter, it will not only stop letters to you, but will also stop telephone calls to you.

    Whom It May Concern:

    We keep getting phone calls for a person referred to as “Joe”. There is no Joe that lives here. I’ve told John, the person that keeps calling here, that it’s not my debt and to stop calling here, but he won’t stop.

    1. Blow a whistle into the phone when theycall.
    2. Have the telephone company block their number(s).

    I have received over 75 phone calls from this company. They claim they are trying to reach the person that I bought a mobile home from. They claim that since the phone account here is still in her name, I must surely be in touch with her. The fact is that I am not. The fact is that the woman and I made arrangements to keep the phone account intact, in her name, because I could not afford a deposit to the phone company.

    I told this to three different individuals on three different occasions. All three of them became argumentative and accused me of 'knowing' her and 'being in touch' with her. Most of the time, when I recognize their phone number on my caller id, I just ignore it. The last time they called, I answered, hoping to talk some sense into these pushy, rude, assumptive "people". Again, I was accused of 'covering' for this woman from whom I bought the mobile home. I told them that the "next time I hear from their company"... at which point they hung up on me and did not hear me say they would be hearing from the attorney generals office and Governor Richardson himself if need be.

    I simply cannot believe that a company like this can continue to exercise such rudeness and license with complete strangers, strangers who are not even involved in whatever the heck they are looking for, and STILL be in business! I also feel very sorry for anyone who does have legitimate business with I.C. Systems Inc. I tracked them by area code and know that they are in Minnesota.
