Received a call when I am on the National Do Not Call list

This is the second time today that I have been called from De Pere Wisconsin regarding a scam dealing with extended vehicle warranties. I filed a complaint with the DNC previously today. I asked him why he was calling me as I was on the DNC and when I asked him for his address he refused citing fear of terrorists. This person's name was Jordon and then I explained that by calling me when I am on the DNC, he had violated the law and would be subject to fines and jail time for violating my privacy and calling me even though I am on the DNC. I then hung up.

I am receiving calls from the above numbers.... I am suffering from progressive heart and Lung disease and they call me at various times during the day, much of the time when I am sleeping.... I have asked them to stop calling me, for it takes a lot of effort for me to get out of bed to answer the phone... Today I was on the phone with my heart doctor's office and to my primary care doctors trying to resolve an issue of a new medication for uncontrolled Blood Pressures which are extremely high. They called between calls when I have to keep my phone on this day open for medical support from my doctors.. I was released yesterday from a heart procedure from the hospital... I have requested that they stop calling me, but it goes on and on and on... They call numerous times during the week....

Richard Davis called my elderly parents and claimed to have my son in his representation after being arrested for possession of cannabis found during a traffic stop in San Fran. Said "he needed $4,000.00 in 4 separate Walmart cards and just needed the numbers off of the cards after we got them and their grandson would be let go. Even had a young man speak to them who claimed to be Sam, but since the grandparents are hard of hearing, they weren't sure. Sam was at home in WI. sleeping, not in Cali.
