Phillips & Burns keeps calling my number

I go to work 6 days a week and come home to numerous messages on my machine from Phillips & Burns. The gentleman on the recording keeps saying he has a claim on his desk with this individuals name on it. He also states that he has contacted this individual by mail and phone numerous times without any resolution. He also states that he wants this person or his attorney contact him back now within 24 hours. I have called back to the extension given and all I get is a recording. I do not know who he is and I also don't know the individual he is trying to contact. I live in a very small community and its easy to see there is no one by that name that lives here in this town. If he knows who he is calling then he has their correct address. I have left messages on his voice mail and have never spoken to him directly. I have limited time to contact him due to the hours I work. I would like to speak to him and let him know to remove my number from his list as I do not know who is is asking for.

Phillip & Burns Co.

The past couple of weeks there have been numberous messages on my answering machine from the office of Phillips and Burns for a person whom I do not know, although our last names are the same. The last name is very common in the area which I live, that doesn't mean I know every one of them. Not knowing what the call was for, or if it was important, I called the number back, spoke to the person who had called and proceeded to tell him that no one lived here by that name. He then became VERY rude and obnoxious calling me a liar and telling me that dishonesty would not pay. And continuing to ask to speak to the person he was looking for. I kept telling him that I had NO clue who this person was. He asked HOW I WAS RELATED to him, that we had the last name, so I should be able to tell him something. I TRIED to reassure this man that I had no clue who the person was he was trying to contact. He finally hung up after saying in a nasty voice. "have a good day". After thinking about how rude he was and how he spoke to me, I called back and got his voice mail... I told him that I resented being called dishonest and that I had told him the truth, that I didn't know this person and that I had looked in the phone directory and found 3 people with that name, and if he desired, he could call one of them and find out if they were the one he was trying to contact. and also told him in a not so nice voice to "have a great day" Then I called the number back and waited for a "human" (not sure if they exist with this firm) to answer and asked if he could tell me what thie company was, he wouldn't tell me and asked why I needed to know. I explained the situation to him and that I resented being talked to like that. He made the comment that nothing could be done now, could it? I told him that I did NOT know the person they were trying to contact and had NO clue as to why MY phone number was put down to contact this person. He said he removed my phone number and I wouldn't be contacted again. I think that there should be a stop put to harassing phone calls from businesses to any person, regardless of who they are!!!! I've decided that when they call me, I'll be RUDE first, Cause if they want to be nasty I've got them beat!!!
