Consumer Complaint: XXXX XXXX has left multiple messages at my home for my former sister in law. This morning they started calling before XXXX XXXX and we explained that we have no contact information for her and havent heard from her in years and to please stop calling our number. They said they would update their records. They then called back 4 more times before I took my phone off the hook. But I have an elderly mother that night need me so I cant keep it off all day. It is my day off and I wanted some peace. When I spoke with them the 3rd time they called they said Ill probably get more calls because it takes time to update their records.
