full name & addr sent to local phone co?

full name & addr sent to local phone co?

As the subject says: does or did Comcast send my name & address to the local phone company for their listing on the white pages?

 

Never had the address listed but just received the 2011 Surewest directory that has my name & address.  Prior to this it was just the 1st inital & last name, then it got changed to the 1st & last name.  What happened & how can it be corrected to just have the the original 1st initial & last name & phone number listed.

 

I did drop down to just the "performance" instead of the "performance plus" for the tripple play.  Would the "account exec" have done the damage to my listing?  & why should it have happen?

Think that Comcast doesn't want to admit that Comcast is aiding the telemarketers/debt collectors to track people in providing the reverse address phone lookups.  Is Comcast getting a payoff to provide the reverse address lookup phone numbers?

 

I keep getting phone calls from "Financial Credit" for someone who haven't lived in this apt at least for over 6 yrs; no idea how long ago the person actually lived in this apt complex.  I don't answer the phone as I use the phone's answering recordings to screen the calls.  "Financial Credit" sometimes leave a message & sometimes not.

 

"Financial Credit" does do a service for me tho; they let me know if Comcast's phone service is working or not as legitimate phone calls to me are very low; telemarketers do make frequent calls but they are learning that they only get the greeting from the answering machine.

Yes they did. I had an unlisted name/number with AT&T and when I switched to Comcast, my full name and address is now listed.  Yeah it sucks.

I  recently signed up for comcast and they asked me if i wanted an unlisted  number or not , and if i did want an unlisted number it would be so much extra every month. and a listed number was free .

Listed is fine, just as long as my address is left off.  I just called the phone book number and had them change it for next tome, no problemo.
