Once or twice a day, I get a call on my cell with a caller id of "Unknown". How can I get them to stop?
Several weeks ago, I started getting calls to my cell phone once or twice daily with a number that shows up as "Unknown". The last time I answered, I heard a recording that said to hold "to discuss a personal matter". When someone came on, they asked for a name I don't know, and refused to give up much more info, except to say that they were calling from "MCM, a business".
Strongly suspecting that these were collection calls, I googled "MCM collections" and sure enough there they were: MCM: About Us
How can I get them to stop? Extra points for solutions that involve nailing them for $1000 a crack (or whatever) under the FDCPA.
[Yes, I can and do simply ignore the calls, but occasionally I'll get calls from someone over Skype that also shows up as "Unknown", so I'd like not to have to bounce every such call to voicemail.]
