We've been suffering nuisance and harassing calls from one (or more) unknown companies going back to about 2008 or 2010 or so. Online searches does not reveal the owners of the number, and Verizon will not provide the information to us.
We would like to begin legal actions against the company or companies. We would like to (1) ask a judge for an order to stop calling, and (2) begin civil matters for violating our Terms of Service, Telephone Consumer Protection Act violations and Computer Fraud and Abuse Act violations.
At this point in time we only have the fake Caller ID information in a database we created that also includes the time of the call and some other miscellaneous metadata. This company uses various different numbers when calling.
The company's message is something like "This call is for JOHN DOE. If you are JOHN DOE then press 1". They don't offer other choices, and they call several times a day. Answering and waiting for someone to pickup eventually results in a fast-busy signal (dropped call).
We also called the company back several times. We asked the unidentified company to stop calling us. We also state the person they are hunting is not at our residence. We believe it is the same company because they use the same harassing message and answer the same way. The company fails to identify itself and only states it operates a "call center".
We are in Baltimore, MD, US.
How do we list the defendant(s) when we only have false information? And how do we handle the "serve on" address with the clerk's office?
