Some people just need to be hunted down and beaten.
Take, for example, the vermin behind a company doing business in the Atlanta area. They’re variously known as VersaDebt, Warranty Activation Center, Debt Freedom, Debt Safe, Card Services, Client Services and probably dozens of other aliases. The current address I have for them is 4501 Circle 75 Parkway Suite A-1225 (Upper Level) Atlanta, GA 30339. Then there’s PO Box 674406, Marietta, GA 30006-0074. The domain registration s for Versadebt.com and some of the others indicate a couple of other suspects:O’Donald, Burt (BurtODonald@ibmi-us.com)

Oh, what a surprise!!! Florida, the home of an incredibly large number of thieves, cheats, liars, con men, murderers, drug dealers, and petty criminals of all descriptions. Apparently you can pretty much do as you please in Florida without the inconvenience of any semblance of law enforcement.
We have been getting telemarketing calls from these scumbags for a couple of years now. It’s always the same thing: forged caller ID with a fake phone number, a recorded pitch trying to sucker you into some scam – it used to be “debt and interest reduction for your credit card accounts”. Now it’s “Activate the extended warranty on your car”. All of it bullshit. We’re on the Do Not Call list, have been since it came on line. They don’t care. They know they can operate with impunity, because apparently the FCC and FTC are toothless old women, unwilling or unable to do anything. The GA Attorney General doesn’t care. I would be tempted to think these jackasses are paying people off for protection from prosecution, but I think the sad fact is you can get away with damn near anything illegal in this country any more, without any fear of having some government regulatory or law enforcement agency actually enforcing the bazillion laws we already have.
Like I said… some people just need an old fashioned beat down. Whatever you do, DON’T start prank calling (877) 680-3328 or (866) 620-3350 or (800) 350-3046, or FAX-bombing 678-238-0625, or hacking livedebtfreenow.com, versadebt.com, or ibmi-us.com. Just don’t.
Unless maybe you live in Florida or Georgia, then you can probably get away with it. Everyone else does.
