Carpet Cleaners Crazy Auto Dialer

We've been getting calls from carpet cleaners, but they never leave a company name or contact information. Initially, there was an 800 phone number, which we reported to the FTC, but more often than not it's an unknown number (i.e., no number shows up on the caller ID). When we checked the 800 number online, we found that the number is much hated by many, many people for the same reason we hate it. They shouldn't be calling, they haven't taken our number off their list despite having asked the one time we got through, and they often hide their number and contact information.

Their most recent number is (818) 555-1000, which happens to be the phone number for directory assistance. Not much we can do there.

I don't know how they do business.
