QUESTION: Denise on Facebook says a relative has given Denise’s phone number out to collections agencies. How does she get off the list? Denise has lost touch with the relative. Dave has some ideas.

ANSWER: Tell them to take your phone number off the list. Get their address and mail them a letter certified mail that tells them to take your number off the list. Get a little bit ruder and ruder, and then finally go ahead and notify them and let them know that any future phone calls from them are going to be considered an obscene phone call. The way we handle obscene phone calls is that we get a sports air horn from Sports Academy, and when they call, we see if we can’t bust their eardrums.
