Complaint: On 10/25/2013 representatives from Nandy Pest Control showed up at the above address to perform service that we did not request or authorize. My elderly parents were under the care of a round the clock care agency, and at first the caregiver thought we might have ordered the service. She tried to reach us to verify, but the technicians started to spray before she could contact us. This was a BIG deal, as my elderly father was very frail, and allergic to the Pyrethrins used in Nandy's "safe" spray. As soon as the care giver reached me, I called Nandy Pest to find out what they had sprayed in his bedroom, while he lay in bed. We opened up the windows and hoped for the best. I asked who had called them to come out and spray. They had apparently called the house and Mom, who has dementia, answered the phone. My parents were on the "do not call list" specifically to protect them from unethical solicitors who prey on the elderly, like Nandy Pest control. *** ***** seems to think that he is "exempt" from the do not call list because he is a small business....I disagree! I told *** ***** on 10/25/2013 to NEVER call them again, and NEVER spray their house again. He promised to make a note of that in their chart. On June 27th a salesperson called again trying to solicit business. When my sister and I called them back, it turned into a collection call, only they could not sell more service. We had not received a bill up to this point, nor did we expect to get one after they sprayed my father with poison. My father passed away a few weeks after their 90 day guarantee. I am not alleging that the spray killed him, but it certainly did not help. Now Nandy is calling once again to collect $54.00 for a service that we did not ask for and did not want. He also threatens to make this a very bad day for my sister and I. My concern is that if we pay the bill, we are then a "customer" and then exempt from the do not call list. We never signed a contract, nor did our parents.
Desired Settlement: Please leave my mother alone. Please leave us alone, and please respect the DO NOT CALL LIST!
MESSAGE FROM BUSINESS:
Nandy Pest Control arrived to do a basic general field pest control service at 1515 Wallace Rd.
Better Business Bureau:
Point 1. I checked my mother's number in the DNC registry, and she was in fact registered well before 10/23/2013 when they called to solicit business.
Thank you for registering your phone number with the National Do Not Call Registry. You successfully registered your phone number ending in 8221 on November 20, 2012. Most telemarketers will be required to stop calling you 31 days from your registration date.
Point 2. I have reviewed Nandy's form. and that is most definitely NOT my mother's signature, nor is it my signature, nor is it my sister's signature. Therefore Nandy does not have a valid contract with any of us.
Point 3. Both our caregiver and Nandy's technician admitted to both my sister and myself that he sprayed in my father's room while he was sleeping. That was never in question.
Point 4. I noticed that they had documented my mother's dementia and DNC in comment 5...I don't understand why that was not comment 1.
Point 5. The caregiver called us to find out if they were supposed to be there, I still have her text messages saved on my phone. The technician admitted that they had called from a call center, and the caregiver located that call on the caller ID.
