Consumer Complaint: Gatestone attempted to reach me at my place of employment. The representative, Mr XXXX spoke with our receptionist at the office demanding to get in touch with me. Mr . XXXX explained to her that he has left me numerous messages over the past few weeks but never heard back from me. She called me worried that there was an emergency because Mr . XXXX was so adamant about reaching me. He would not give her his contact information or business he was calling from. I have been at this employer for 1 month and having ‘someone ‘ contact me and say I have not returned numerous calls to a ‘mystery person ‘ is extremely unprofessional and will result in me having a negative review on my on work history. I contacted Mr . XXXX at Gatestone and told him to NEVER contact my place of employment after speaking with another colleague of his stating the same thing. Here is a list of numbers Gatestone has contacted me from : ( XXXX ) XXXX-XXXX, ( XXXX ) XXXX-XXXX, ( XXXX ) XXXX-XXXX, ( XXXX ) XXXX-XXXX, ( XXXX ) XXXX-XXXX and ( XXXX ) XXXX-XXXX. www.gatestoneco.com
