    We're doing a short sale on our old house. Our mortgage company won't take us off auto-dialer and calls constantly. They said we have to send them a notarized "cease and desist" letter. Yeah right. Don't they know where we live?So- I am faxing our entire short sale application every hour until they stop calling me.

    My husband told me to go down the road and take a pic of one of the delapidated old abandoned farm houses and send it to them with the message "you want it- come and get it!" [​IMG]

    I know we really have no power over the mega-banks- but it's fun giving them a little taste of their own medicine.

    Check the State laws... there may be something that you can do that constitutes harassment. I know here in Ontario they (collection agencys, telemarketers, ect) can only call 3X per 24 hour period, and thats if they get no answer, if you however do answer the phone they are not allowed to call again that day.

    Check with your local phone company.. you can block their number

    Just set your fax machine to send them blank pieces of paper or a pic of a naked goat. [​IMG]


    Go get em! [​IMG]


    Beware the 1099 for the short sale difference.



    Here in CT they can only call once. Tell them you are aware of their position and to communicate via mail only.
    Or, tell them the number is a cellphone and see if they buy it.

    Quote:We're selling it for less than we owe- but we'll probably be able to break even. It's still considered a short sale though because we aren't making payments in the meantime.

    aaa heck if you are not going to be dealing with them anymore... the $20 it costs to have my phone # changed would be so worth my sanity...

    I used to get spam faxes all the time and used a similiar method to get it stopped...

    I took 3 pieces of computer paper and scribbled all over with dark colored pencils... placed first sheet on top and taped the other 2 sheets behind it. Then as it was feeding and sending through, I taped the back sheet to the first sheet so I had a never ending circle. Within 15 minutes it was stopped from their side so I waited an hour and resent it. It ran for another 15 to twenty minutes before it stopped.

    Before I closed up for the night around 7 or 8 and I was sure their office was closed I resent it one last time. The next morning I walked into the shop to hear my phone ringing. Apparently I ran their fax out of paper, and they used up all kinds of toner cartridges because they couldn't tell the difference between my incoming faxes and their other customers. I [​IMG]
