Steve said: I get a call daily from this 1-855-228-6574 as well as weekly calls from various numbers for furnace duct cleaning services (like they think I am stupid enough to hire morons who violate the CRTC's do not call list). After futile filings of complaints, I found that the best the CRTC can do is disable the duct cleaning telemarketers number, which they counter by activating a new cell phone or thru Magic Jack. As far as Enbridge/Direct Energy, I am an Enbridge gas customer, they are entitled to pester me under the rules of the Do Not Call List whether I want them to or not. I finally found piece of mind by purchasing on ebay a device that blocks phone calls. Once you receive a call just press the black list button and that number is automatically disconnected forever. It can be programmed to block calls from "Unknown Number" or from ####### or ******* and so on, up to 1500 numbers. The blocker gets its power from the phone lines and allows you to add or remove numbers from the black list. You can black list outgoing numbers as well though I do not use this feature. They run around $80-90 and effectively do what the CRTC seems incapable of doing with the Do Not Call List Program. The blocked numbers are displayed on the blocker and will ring the phone momentarily for 1 ring, before the line is dropped. I haven't had a conversation with Direct Energy or Duct Cleaning Morons since I installed the device 6 month ago. I just get used to knowing that two rings or more is a legatimate caller and a single ring means that a telemarketer was disconnected faster than I can pick up the phone. And if it is some new telemarketer, I just block them out from my world!
Upset no more said: I got 3-4 calls daily from this number for quite sometime and finally got so fed up that I sent a complaint email to Direct Energy. I told them to stop calling my number and within 48 hours, no more calls from them. This is the email address : csdirectenergy (at) directenergy.com
Hope it will help you.

anonymous said: These jokers have been calling for weeks and 9 out of 10 times the phone is dead when you pick it up. Finally I get someone on the line and they try to sell me an overpriced maintenance package for my 1 year old furnace and AC unit. I asked to be removed from their calling list.
