Anyone know Patty?

So the past couple weeks I keep getting these phone calls for Patty. The phone will ring and I will answer it and the person on the other line says "Where's Patty?". I've tried to be nice, really I have. I will say nicely, "I think you have the wrong number, there is no Patty here." The person will hang up. If I'm not home when they try to call, I get this message, "Patty, PATTY! You there Patty?". Ok, if you have called our home #, you can hear Kevin and my voice, not Patty's! Perhaps who ever is calling for her believes we are holding her hostage...

So today, the same number comes up and I answer, same standard request on the other line, "Where's Patty?". To which I reply, "I have no idea where Patty is, but I do know this...she's not HERE!" I go on to say, "Ma'am, I have repeatedly told you that there is no Patty at this number, so can you please STOP calling my house!" She hangs up. I know this isn't the end, I'm sure she'll call back.

So if any of you know Patty, can you please let her know I'm getting phone calls for her.

Next time they call say, "Great! We are conducting an investigation into her recent activity. She has been arrested and we need to find her accomplices....can I have your name and number?"

That happened to us in Oregon after we cancelled Vonage. How they did this I don't know, but we kept our number and switched to local phone service and they gave our same number that we kept to someone knew. How two people can have the same number I have no idea, but it was very annoying.

Being a former bill collector, sounds like a collection agengy to me. And they are hanging up before you can find that out cause if you tell them to stop they HAVE to. So when they call ask them "Are you a bill collector" They have to answer you. Then ask for a manager. Tell them they are in violation of the FEDERAL DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES ACT because you have given them verbal notice not you call your residence and that if it happens again you will file a formal complaint with the Better Business bureau. That should get someone to listen to you. Hehehe
