"Heather" from "Account Services" is in jail !
The FTC has finally put (at least a temporary) end to those "Heather from Account Services" and "Warranty Services" calls. If you got 10 of these calls a week like I did, you should be jumping for joy.

The FTC alleges, in part that they were:

1) calling consumers whose phone numbers are on the National Do Not Call Registry;
2) calling consumers who had previously asked not to be called;
3) failing to transmit their caller ID information, as required;
4) “spoofing” or masking their caller ID information;
5) failing to promptly identify themselves, the purpose of their call, and/or the nature of the goods or services they were selling;
6) improperly abandoning calls; and
7) failing to make required disclosures in their robocalls.

 Thank goodness. We have a private phone line at work that doctors can use to call our doctors. For a while it was constantly ringing with calls like these. Even after I added our number to the do not call registry.

Excellent. They were fun, especially when I got the calls WEEKLY during the 3 year period I didn't own a car at all. 

She heard about a place people were smilin', they spoke about the Red Man's way and how they loved the land...

If the sweetheart really is in jail, the calls have resumed as of today (08-25-2010) at 3P.M. Eastern time. It makes me want to remove my telephone. Am on the DO NOT CALL list and have been for years..

Re: "Heather" from "Account Services"

OMG, i hope Heather didnt break out of jail! One of the reasons that "Heather" got busted is because she didnt really pay much attention to that Do Not Call list, so I doubt she'd pay attention to it now if she's back on the loose..

Apparently, Heather broke jail. At least as of yesterday, 14 December 2010 at 1040 hours. This phone number belongs to a trusting 93-year-old woman who is armed with a dangerous weapon - a credit card. Her number has been on the DNC list since its inception. These illegal calls continue unabated.

Heather has been calling me for four years with a short lull about the time this thread went up. I can tell you that she has broken out of jail and is now spoofing with phone numbers that are two digits off from your own number. I got a call from her yesterday and this morning a co-worker told me that she too got a call from them using a number that was two digits off from her own number. Heather is now spoofing with customized numbers.

If that was ever true, she didn't last long. Got another call from her this morning offering to lower the interest rates on my credit cards--an exercise in futility since I never keep balances on my cards--and once again I pressed "2" to get my number off her list. Yeah, like that will work!

Heather -- or at least some of the many Heathers -- is/was Brittany Dunphy, Kara Singleton Adams, Jason Eyers, James Schoenholz et al. I know this because I filed complaints about Heather harassment and then started getting emails from the US Department of Justice about the progress of their Heather prosecution. Today's update:

The defendant BRITTANY DUNPHY plead guilty to one count of Conspiracy to Commit Offense or to Defraud US. BRITTANY DUNPHY also plead guilty to one count of Fraud by Wire, Radio or Television.

It is helpful for the Court to know the impact of this crime on its victims. In an effort to provide this information to the Court, we are enclosing a Victim Impact Statement. If you choose to complete a statement, please forward it to:

Jamila Hall
United States Attorneys Office
Northern District of Georgia
75 Spring Street, S.W.
Suite 600
Atlanta, GA 30303

This is one way the Court can hear your concerns as they relate to the crime. A United States Probation Officer may also contact you in an effort to obtain additional victim impact information. Victim impact information is generally not public information; however, under criminal law and procedures, all information contained in your questionnaire will be disclosed to the defendant and his attorney. Please return this statement as soon as possible, and at the very latest it needs to be returned before the sentencing date.

The sentencing hearing for defendant(s), BRITTANY DUNPHY, has been set for November 1, 2011, 10:30 AM at Richard B. Russell Federal Building and Courthouse, Courtroom 2307, 75 Spring St. SW, Atlanta, GA 30303 before Judge Charles Pannell. You are welcome to attend this proceeding; however, unless you have received a subpoena, your attendance is not required by the Court. If you plan on attending, please check with the VNS Call Center to verify the sentencing date and time. Should you wish to speak at the sentencing or want to check for the most current information on the date/time of this event please call our office a day or two before the scheduled hearing.

A United States Probation Officer prepares a report for the Court and may contact you to discuss the impact the crime had on you financially, physically, and/or emotionally. If you are contacted, please make every effort to provide accurate and detailed information. PLEASE NOTE: If you plan on attending the hearing, we suggest that you call our office at 404-581-6179, 404-581-6041 or 404-581-6102 one business day before the hearing to confirm the date and time.

Re: "Heather" from "Account Services" is in jail !

10/10/2011 - Heather's sidekick Rachel called just now.

A couple of months ago I read all the FTC documents that you linked to, and called the "Staff Contact" number in Chicago that was listed at the bottom of the document your link goes directly to. The woman that answered the phone said they get calls from Heather all the time. These are the people that handled the suit against them and they get called by them all the time! I said you guys sued them, won, and they're still calling. She said "Do you think they care?" When I read that they had a 9 million dollar judgement against them because that was the estimated amount of their ill begotten gains, which by the way they claimed poverty and did not pay, I understood why they are continuing to do it.

Hey, lawyer up, steal 9 million dollars, claim poverty when told to pay it back, repeat.

Geeez!   I'd have to claim poverty, too, if I got a 9-million dollar judgement against me.  Maybe, they'll just have to shoot both Heather and Rachel, then bury them out in the yard, and write off the judgement -- might be cheaper for all concerned.

I hear the jail Heather is in has employment classes of setting up your own robocall business. I continue to get the calls and from different floating numbers.
