    Alex & Isaac - Home Buyers
    Called my work line, asked if I want to sell my home.. I inquired how he got my number and he said "my boss just hands me a list and I call, so I don't know where the information comes from". I then asked him what's the company name, "Home Buyers" he replied. Then I asked what the manager's name was, and he replied "Isaac". I proceeded to inquire for the last name and was told "I don't know his last name, I'm sorry". He was overall polite, but this whole call was fishy... After he said he didn't know the last name, I told him, "I know my manager's first and last name, so this is extremely strange and unsettling" I think about every responsible adult in this country would agree it's really weird to state you don't know your manager's full name.. after this, he hung up on me. Fake company, fake calls, and work disruption.

    This number calls my cell upwards of 4 times daily. The caller ID shows Newark NJ and the calling location shows Reno, Texas, but 817 is not the area code for Reno, Texas. The few times I have answered, there is a long pause and then a male asks speak to me by name. When I respond this is him, they disconnect. I have blocked this number on my cell, but it continues to get through.
