Additional Notes

Complaint: Company calls my mother late at night (around 9:30pm) and before advertised she has won money. Tonight, she received a call from this company, let it go to her voice mail, and when she retrieved the voice mail, they were claiming they were from **** and they needed her to contact them.

Desired Settlement: The company needs to be investigated as to why a music store is calling people on the other side of the country, telling them they have won money and now claiming they are from a phone company. Please stop all contact.

Business Response: Our toll free number has been "spoofed" and is being used to make calls all over the country. We have cancelled the number and are taking steps to insure that this doesn't happen again. We are a small local company and would not ever call people late at night or use a deceptive identity.

 
Hopefully the cancellation of the number will stop this from occurring in the future. We apologize for the inconvenience.
